To protect and serve…. All Vance Connelly ever wanted to do was continue his family’s tradition and join the Tampa Police Department, but his dreams were crushed the day he woke with the enhanced mark on his face. After years of struggling to adjust to life as an enhanced human, by a stroke of luck, he met Talon Valdez and became a proud member of the FBI’s Human Enhanced Rescue Organization.

Samuel “Angel” Piper is eager to leave his DEA undercover work behind as he joins the HERO team as Vance’s regular human partner. But Sam’s painful past is ever present, just below the surface of the life he has built for himself as an ambitious young agent. When the team investigates rumors of a new drug using enhanced blood, the case’s mysterious connection to Sam threatens not just his life but Vance’s.

His hopes are about to be spectacularly dashed.

Dragon Emile doesn’t want to take his soft-scale form in order to carry the clan’s eggs, so he has no choice but to run—all the way to another dimension and into the arms of a kind, handsome, and lonely human. Sunny takes him in, and feelings beyond friendship develop quickly. But Emile is centuries out of touch with human culture, and Sunny is wary of his seeming innocence—the guy doesn’t even know about indoor plumbing! Emile can hardly enter into a romance when he’s keeping the biggest of secrets—literally.

But Emile’s repressed magic is wreaking havoc on the land, waking dryads and water sprites… and leading Emile’s vindictive hatch-brother right to them.

A Being(s) in Love Story

Can a curse be a blessing?

Clematis works hard to embody every fairy stereotype. He can be a sulky prince or a submissive flirt, slutty and arrogant or silly and soft. He makes himself into whatever causes someone to want him. Combine that with beauty that’s incredible even for a fairy, and everyone wants him sooner or later… just not for long.

Well, everyone except the fairy Clematis secretly adores. But then, he’s never expected happily ever after, not when he’s spent years burying his emotions and making himself unlovable to push people away and protect his heart.

But his curse changes all that, and Clematis can no longer prevent his feelings from rising to the surface. He’s terrified that when his few friends see him for who he really is, they’ll abandon him, just like his parents did.

It’s hard to imagine friends who see past his act to the sweet person within, but maybe happiness has been in front of him the entire time, waiting for the real Clematis to break free and blossom.

Fortsetzung zu Die Liebe und der Mut zum Leben

Truman Reid ist Schüler der Abschlussklasse an der Summitville Highschool. Und er ist ‚out & proud‘ aus Überzeugung, offen, eigenwillig und kompromisslos. Dafür wurde er an seiner Schule jahrelang gehänselt und schikaniert. Kein Wunder also, dass er es kaum abwarten kann, seine kleine Heimatstadt am Ohio River endgültig hinter sich zu lassen. Er freut sich schon auf die strahlenden Lichter der Großstadt. Vielleicht kann er ja der erste Star werden, der gender-fluid ist und einen Oscar gewinnt. Doch dann sieht er am ersten Schultag in die Augen des wunderbarsten jungen Mannes, den er jemals gesehen hat.

Mike Stewart – groß, dunkelhaarig und mit den schönsten blauen Augen der Welt – ist neu in der Stadt. Er ist still, männlich und hat die sexy Ausstrahlung einer verlorenen Seele. Für Truman ist es wie Liebe auf den ersten Blick. Eine Liebe, die nur noch tiefer werden kann, als die beiden bei der Schulaufführung von Harvey zusammenarbeiten – Mike hinter der Bühne und Truman als Regisseur. Aber ist Mike überhaupt schwul? Und wie sollen sie damit umgehen, dass sich Trumans Mom ausgerechnet in Mikes Dad verliebt?

Und als wären das nicht schon genug Probleme, entschließt sich der unkonventionelle Truman auch noch, mit seiner kontroversen und mutigen Inszenierung von Harvey einen Skandal auszulösen, der die ganze Stadt in Aufregung versetzt.

Ein Stück, das auf der Bühne des Lebens spielt – auf der Bühne von Liebe, Lachen, Weinen und dem Mut, zu sich selbst zu stehen. Wie wird es enden?

Sarcastic cop Theo Hsu returns home to Hawai‘i after realizing he wants more from his life, and also, less. He hopes to reconnect with his past and make amends with his mother, who remarried a cool, distant man, leaving Theo unsure where he stands.

It doesn’t take him long to figure out where he wants to stand, though: right next to his childhood best friend, tattooed detective Koa Palapiti. Theo would like to upgrade their relationship, but Koa is putting out some seriously mixed signals. It’s a mystery Theo can’t let go, but just as they start to connect, kidnapping, murder, and a deadly game with international stakes get in the way. Koa wants to keep Theo out of it, and if it comes to a choice between him and Koa’s partner, Freddie Ortiz, Theo doesn’t like his chances.

But even if Koa wants to push him out of the investigation, and his life, Theo still has a few tricks up his sleeve. It’ll take all his special gifts, ingenuity, risk-taking, family ties—and even some kinky undercover work—to save the day… and the man he never should’ve let get away.
