A Bent Oak Story

Gil Porter and Matt Grayson’s Bent Oak Ranch in Mercy, Texas, is a rare haven for gay men in the nineteenth century, and their friend Carlos Hernandez will need it when a man from his past unexpectedly comes back into his life.

Jules Wingate hopes to start over in Mercy as the schoolmaster after a scandal sent him and his son fleeing their former home. But he discovers he’s left one bad situation for another when he encounters his former student and lover, Carlos. No matter how Jules tries to resist, he yearns for the passionate connection they once shared… before Carlos broke his heart.

Carlos knows his foolish, immature actions hurt Jules, but he desperately wants a second chance and to show Jules he’s changed. But trust so badly broken is hard to repair. While he works to earn Jules’s forgiveness, someone else at the ranch has his sights set on Carlos—and he doesn’t care how many lives he has to ruin to make Carlos his and his alone.

Punk’s not dead, but it’s time to redefine life.

Devlin Waters thought he’d have music forever. But the tragic death of his best friend ended the twenty-year run of his punk band, Negative Impression. Unable to process the loss, Devlin distances himself from everyone and everything that reminds him of the band. But forty-one is too young to curl up and wait for the end. In a search for a second career, he finds himself at university with a bunch of kids young enough to be… his kids. His sexy archeology professor, however, makes Devlin think about life beyond his grief….

Dr. Jack Johnson does not appreciate Devlin’s lack of respect, his inability to be serious, or his chronic lateness. Worse, he hates that he’s attracted to a student. When he realizes Devlin is the rock star he crushed on in his youth, he drops his guard—against his better judgment.

Before they can move forward together, Jack must admit to Devlin that he’s not only an admirer, but he also sings in a cover band. How will Devlin react to his ultimate fanboy when his own music has died?

The hardest thing a rebel can do isn’t standing up for something—it’s standing up for himself.

Life takes delight in stabbing Gus Scott in the back when he least expects it. After Gus spends years running from his past, present, and the dismal future every social worker predicted for him, karma delivers the one thing Gus could never—would never—turn his back on: a son from a one-night stand he’d had after a devastating breakup a few years ago.

Returning to San Francisco and to 415 Ink, his family’s tattoo shop, gave him the perfect shelter to battle his personal demons and get himself together… until the firefighter who’d broken him walked back into Gus’s life.

For Rey Montenegro, tattoo artist Gus Scott was an elusive brass ring, a glittering prize he hadn’t the strength or flexibility to hold on to. Severing his relationship with the mercurial tattoo artist hurt, but Gus hadn’t wanted the kind of domestic life Rey craved, leaving Rey with an aching chasm in his soul.

When Gus’s life and world starts to unravel, Rey helps him pick up the pieces, and Gus wonders if that forever Rey wants is more than just a dream.

The Town of Superstition: Book Four

Thaddeus and his family and friends have returned from Iron Gulch and Thaddeus’s summer of magical awakening to a very different life. For one, he has both his parents for the first time, though his mother is still haunted by terrors and powers she can’t yet control. Teofil, Thaddeus’s gnome boyfriend, is consumed with finding Thaddeus’s evil uncle Lucian and answers about what happened to his brother, and he spends his days sequestered in Leopold’s library, pouring over the old wizard’s journals. When Thaddeus starts school and makes friends Teofil doesn’t like, there’s tension between them for the first time ever.

Thaddeus’s problems don’t end there. It’s harder and harder for him to conceal his magic, especially when facing the school bully. He’s lost, confused, and lashing out, and for once, he finds no solace in those closest to him.

Können zwei sehr verschiedene Männer die Liebe finden, die sie brauchen, um zu überleben?

Remi Ginn ist eine unbeschwerte Werkatze und liebt T-Shirts mit Sprüchen. Er wäre mit einem menschlichen Gefährten absolut zufrieden. Aber bekommt er das von der Göttin Bastet? Natürlich nicht. Stattdessen gibt sie ihm Marshell, einen Vetala, einen schlangenähnlichen Nicht-Wandler, der Blut trinkt. Einen Mann, der genauso gerne toppt wie Remi – und sogar noch mächtiger als der Alpha und der Thronfolger des West Falls Rudels.

Während Remi überlegt, ob er mit der Wahl der höheren Mächte klarkommt, wird Marshell von Jägern angegriffen. Danach vereinen sie sich in einer Explosion aus Leidenschaft und Remi beansprucht Marshell für sich. Jetzt müssen sie herausfinden, wie ihre Beziehung funktionieren soll, während sie umeinander herumtanzen. 

Das Rudel befindet sich im Aufruhr und dass Remi Marshell akzeptiert rüttelt an den Grundfesten der engstirnigen Gruppe. Die Konsequenzen werden sehr weitreichend sein. Und als ob das noch nicht genügend Probleme wären, ist die Situation mit den Jägern noch lange nicht geklärt … wie das Auftauchen eines Alpha-Werwolfs zeigt.

Un libro della serie Blue Notes

Cary Redding è una contraddizione in carne e ossa. È un famoso violoncellista, ricercato dalle orchestre di tutto il mondo, ma sotto le vesti del musicista c’è un uomo profondamente tormentato, che ama l’alcol e il sesso occasionale. Il motivo di questa ‘stonatura’? Cary sa di essere un bugiardo. Un farabutto. Lui è il ladro di melodie.

Cary riesce a gestire bene la sua doppia vita fino alla notte in cui, in un vicolo buio di Milano, non viene aggredito da due malviventi. Proprio quando le cose stanno per mettersi male, l’affascinante Antonio Bianchi, un avvocato di successo, lo soccorre salvandogli la vita. Antonio, però, gli offre anche qualcosa che lui non conosce – l’amore – e Cary non sa più cosa fare. La situazione è complicata. Innanzitutto, Antonio ha un figlio di sei anni. E inoltre, Cary deve confessargli il suo alter ego e sperare che l’uomo lo perdoni.

Quando Cary pensa di aver messo finalmente ordine nella sua vita, passato e presente si scontrano, costringendolo a scegliere tra due famiglie: quella che aveva sempre voluto da bambino, e quella che ama adesso, da adulto.

Bowen Merlin—yes, that’s his real name—accepts a position in the quaint town of Lancaster, New Hampshire, as the high school band director. He leaves New York City for the snowy countryside of New England just in time for the holidays. With class, homework, after-school activities, and a surprise Christmas concert to plan and rehearse, Bowen is plenty busy. And since he’s never had much luck with romance, factoring in time to find Mr. Right isn’t a priority….

Until he meets the proprietor of Snowy Ridge Apple Orchard, Felix Hansen. Suddenly, true love seems like a possibility for the first time in Bowen’s life. The two are a perfect match and fill the skipped beats of each other’s hearts. But as wonderful as Felix seems, he’s harboring scars that could end their budding relationship when someone in town goes to great lengths to sabotage their careers.

If Bowen is to survive the holidays, he’ll need to lean on old friends and new, convince Felix he’s worth any hardship, and prove they can come out of the catastrophe stronger if they do so together.

Die einzige Sache, die Colin Mulligans Leben Sinn gibt, ist das Auseinandernehmen und wieder Zusammensetzen von Autos. In der Werkstatt, in der er zusammen mit seinem Vater und seinen Brüdern arbeitet, versucht er ohne Panikattacke und Wutausbruch durch den Tag zu kommen. Trinken hilft. Ebenso wie Laufen und Gewichtheben, bis er sich kaum noch auf den Beinen halten kann. Nichts davon kann jedoch die Tatsache, dass er schwul ist, ändern – ein Geheimnis, das er vor allen verheimlicht.

Rafael Guerra hat einen Weg gefunden, mit seiner Vergangenheit, für die er sich schämt, zu leben. Sein Leben hat er der Sozialarbeit und der Hilfe von Jugendlichen, die wie er aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammen, gewidmet. Für Liebe hat er keine Zeit. Verflucht, er hat kaum Zeit für sich selbst. Irgendwie zieht ihn alles an dem unglücklichen, selbstzerstörerischen Colin an. Der Weg dorthin ist jedoch mit den Schwierigkeiten gepflastert, die Rafe mit so viel Anstrengung hinter sich gelassen hat. Als ihre Beziehung tiefer wird, sind Rafe und Colin gezwungen, Geheimnisse ans Licht zu bringen, die jeder von ihnen gerne weiterhin im Dunkeln gelassen hätte.

Exposing his body for work is no problem, but after his heart’s been broken, putting it out there again won’t be so easy.

Up-and-coming young executives Copeland Shore and William Donnelly have been friends and sometimes more for years. For Cope’s birthday, Will plans a very special dinner—at a nantaimori restaurant where the most enticing thing is the table. Dai—the naked man beneath their sushi—has both their mouths watering, but when it comes to Dai’s heart, there’s only room at the table for one, and Will gets there first.

Will’s everything Dai thinks he wants in a man… until he’s betrayed. The betrayal also ends the friendship between Will and Cope and leaves Dai shaken and unsure if he can put his trust in another man—not even when a second chance for love and happiness rises from the ashes of the broken relationship. Cope wants to tempt Dai to take a risk with him, but the pain of the past is hard for Dai to shake off… and Cope has obstacles of his own to overcome.

A love story worthy of an old movie… with a new twist.

Artie needs a hero, a man like those he’s always revered in Golden Age films. His drug-dealing jerk of a roommate got him arrested, and since his savior isn’t likely to sweep in and save the day, Artie calls a bail bondsman.

August has always imagined himself a hero from a black-and-white movie, but he’s never found a man willing to let him play that role—at least not until he gets the call from Artie.

Both of their dreams might come true, but not before August must use his skills as a bounty hunter as well as a bondsman. Artie is on the run for his life, and August must protect him and help him clear his name. Only then can they both finally get their man.

Seguito di Dimmi che è vero

Credete nell’amore a prima vista?

Sanford Stewart proprio no. Anzi, crede nel suo esatto contrario, grazie al re degli Homo pomp, Sua Frociosità Pompato I. Sembra infatti che Darren Mayne non abbia altro scopo nella vita se non far piombare nel caos l’esistenza tranquilla e ordinata di Sandy, per il solo gusto di infastidirlo. Sandy lo odia e niente potrà mai fargli cambiare idea.

O almeno così vuol credere.

Ma quando il proprietario del Jack It – il club nel quale Sandy si esibisce nei panni della drag queen Helena Handbasket – gli si presenta con una proposta disperata, Sandy si rende conto che potrebbe essere giunto il momento di mettere da parte i suoi sentimenti per Darren; il gay bar dovrà infatti chiudere se qualcuno non convincerà Andrew Taylor, il sindaco di Tucson, a tenerlo aperto.

Qualcuno come Darren, il figlio illegittimo dell’uomo.

L’infallibile piano è il seguente: sedurre Darren e spingerlo a convincere il padre a rinnovare il contratto tra il club e l’amministrazione cittadina.

Semplice, no?

Sbagliato.
