Serie Piccole cose, Libro 2

Per anni Dustin Davis ha sognato un principe ma ha finito per baciare solo rospi. Quando vede per la prima volta Archer Kyriakides, è convinto che la sorte sia finalmente cambiata e che Archer sia quello giusto. I sentimenti contrastanti che prova in sua presenza lo lasciano però confuso: perché va tutto bene a un incontro e male a quello successivo? Non ha senso! Fino a quando non conosce il suo gemello, Asher, e non capisce di averli confusi più di una volta.

Asher Kyriakides sogna di diventare un fotografo d’alta moda, ma è incastrato in un lavoro che odia e con un fratello irresponsabile e libertino, le cui abitudini lo fanno impazzire, specialmente quando scopre che Archer sta uscendo con l’adorabile biondino a cui pensa da mesi. Combattuto tra desiderio e lealtà, Asher può solo cercare di mettere in guardia Dusty nei confronti del fratello.

Ma quando alla fine Archer si spinge troppo oltre, Dusty si rivolge ad Asher in cerca di aiuto, e lui sa di non potersi tirare indietro. Non impiegheranno molto a capire di essersi innamorati l’uno dell’altro, ma più di un ostacolo si mette sulla loro strada, non per ultimo Archer, che non è ancora disposto a smettere di essere una spina nel fianco del gemello.

It’s a secret he has to keep—from everyone.

But secrecy becomes even harder when a hacker compromises the system TOS uses to track its agents and Theo’s dad goes missing. Theo must find him and stop the hacker, which means leaving the comfort of his computer screen and venturing into a very real and very deadly world.

And if that’s not enough to deal with, all the secrecy is really putting a strain on Theo’s love life.

And on Christmas morning, JT awakes to some sweet loving and the most meaningful gift he could ever imagine. The New Year truly brings a new beginning—ushered in by some silly, sparkly, and sexy fun.

Fortsetzung zu Dirty Kiss

Ein Titel der Ein Cole-McGinnis-Krimi Serie

Kim Jae-Min zu lieben ist nicht immer leicht: Jae fürchtet sich davor, als offen schwuler Mann zu leben, während der zum Privatdetektiv gewordene ehemalige Polizist Cole McGinnis es nicht anders kennt.

Doch Cole muss sich auch auf anderes als die Probleme seines Freundes konzentrieren. Er hat einen Auftrag. Als die Sängerin Scarlet ihn darum bittet, Park Dae-Hoon zu finden, einen schwulen Koreaner, der seit beinahe zwei Jahrzehnten verschwunden ist, versinkt Cole in der verworrenen Welt reicher koreanischer Familien, in denen Verpflichtungen und Politik dazu führen, dass persönliches Glück für den Erhalt des Geschäftsimperiums geopfert wird. Bald häufen sich scheinbar zusammenhanglos die Leichen an. Mit jedem Schritt zur Aufklärung von Dae-Hoons Schicksal segnet eine weitere Person das Zeitliche – und ein geliebter Mensch könnte als Nächstes auf der Liste des Mörders stehen.

Acclaimed musician Hollis Lee is a little bit rock, a little bit country, and a lot in need of some TLC to mend the years of hardcore partying that threatens to ruin his career. Hollis’s manager, Charlie, has the perfect solution in mind.

Personal trainer Jeremy is even-keeled and nothing if not professional—which means doing his job, getting Hollis back to his fighting weight, and ignoring his fierce attraction to the rock star.

Turns out Hollis has a harder time resisting Jeremy than giving up sausage biscuits and cheeseburgers, but succumbing to temptation could end both of their careers. While Hollis is on tour, no one questions Jeremy’s presence, and that means plenty of time to sneak away for some steamy fun on the tour bus. But when an accident separates them, how will they sustain the relationship that’s starting to mean so much?

Growing up Roy in a West Virginia trailer park in the early nineties is one thing, but when she gives up her childhood love for a scholarship to snooty Winchester Academy in the hunt country of Virginia, the state line isn’t the only boundary she’ll have to cross to find out what she’s really made of.

In the company of Reenie (Roy’s New Age trucker mom), her immigrant sweetheart Oscar, and the privileged Winchester girls determined to befriend her whether she likes it or not, Roy encounters one intersection after another where she must face the complex nature of her identity, and how it will shape her future.

Dragon's Hoard

Dreamspun Beyond | #5

To be loved by a dragon is to be treasured.

A hundred years ago, werewolf Alpha Montgomery took a risk driven by desperation—he borrowed money from the ancient dragon Warwick Ehecatl, putting up the pack lands as collateral. Now the debt is due, and dragons don’t forget—or forgive. Warwick demands Montgomery’s son, Avery, and three businesses as compensation. As an Omega, Avery knows he is basically useless to his pack, so he might as well agree. He soon has second thoughts, though. Warwick is fearsome, and he’s free to do as he likes with Avery.

Warwick knows his race’s reputation, and he even admits some of it is deserved. But he’d rather cut off his tail than let his innocent mate’s light go out. It won’t be easy, but buried deep, there’s something between them worth safeguarding.
