Copper Point Medical: Book Three

Once upon a time Nicolas Beckert was the boy who stole kisses from Jared Kumpel beneath the bleachers, but now Jared’s a pediatrician and Nick is the hospital CEO who won’t glance his way. Everything changes, however, when they’re stranded alone in a hospital elevator. Ten years of cold shoulders melt away in five hours of close contact, and old passions rekindle into hot flames.

Once out of the elevator, Jared has no intention of letting Nick get away. It’s clear he’s desperate for someone to give him space to let go of the reins, and Jared is happy to oblige. But Jared wants Nick as a lover in a full, open relationship, which is a step further than Nick is willing to go. They’ve traded kisses under the bleachers for liaisons in the boardroom… and it looks like the same arguments that drove them apart in high school might do the same thing now. 

Jared’s determined not to let that happen this time around. He won’t order Nick from his shell—he’ll listen to what his friend says he needs to feel safe. Maybe this time he can prescribe his lover a happy ever after.

Quando Seth Wilder e Bryce McFarland tornano a Chicago dopo la loro crociera nel Regno Unito, sono ormai quasi innamorati e decidono di andare a vivere insieme per capire se i loro sentimenti possano sopravvivere al mondo reale.

A Seth viene comunicato che sul corpo del defunto marito è stata eseguita un’autopsia, obbligatoria nei casi di suicidio, e che il medico legale ha fatto delle scoperte inquietanti che gettano dei dubbi sulla reale causa della morte.

La clausola sul suicidio contenuta nell’assicurazione della vita del marito prevede che gli venga negato il risarcimento, ma alla luce delle nuove scoperte, l’avvocato gli consiglia di fare ricorso. L’investigatore della compagnia di assicurazioni si rivela essere lo stesso uomo che venticinque anni prima ha spezzato il cuore di Bryce. L’uomo sta attraversando un periodo difficile, e quando si rende conto di tutto il successo ottenuto dal suo ex – e dell’enorme somma di cui Seth potrebbe entrare in possesso – decide di provare ad accaparrarsi una fetta della torta, mettendo a dura prova la relazione tra Bryce e Seth.

A Digging Deep Story

Drake Park has a complicated life. As a gay male midwife, he’s used to raising eyebrows. Add Crohn’s disease and things get interesting—or not, considering the sad state of his love life. Experience has taught Drake that most men are fair-weather sailors when it comes to handling his condition—gone for dust when things get rough. Staying healthy is a full-time job without adding in any heartbreak, so a little loneliness is a small price to pay. If he says it often enough he might even believe it. One thing for sure, the cop who arrested him isn’t about to change that.

Caleb Ashton does not have a complicated life. A senior detective with the Whangarei Police Department, he likes his job and is good at it. He works hard and plays hard, happy to enjoy as many men as he can while he’s still young enough—or at least he was. These days he feels adrift for the first time in his life, and the only thing sparking his interest—a certain prickly young midwife.

But can Drake find enough faith to risk opening his heart again? And does Caleb have what it takes to cope with the challenges Drake’s condition presents?

Insieme al suo bizzarro staff, Joe vive felice nel suo piccolo regno fatto di dolci e caffè. 

L’esperienza gli ha insegnato che l’amore è sopravvalutato e talvolta pericoloso. Non ha intenzione di ripetere gli errori del passato, ma poi incontra un uomo bellissimo e misterioso, senza nome e senza memoria, e non può negare che ci sia del tenero nell’aria. Non è tipo da correre rischi, né con il proprio cuore né tantomeno con la propria vita, ma più tempo passa con “Tom”, più rischia di perdere entrambi.
