His Mossy Boy

Being(s) in Love

A Being(s) in Love Story

Years ago, a very intoxicated Martin nearly died in the woods outside Everlasting, and a beautiful creature saved him, although Martin’s done his best to forget it. He spends his time in a haze of weed as he avoids his emotionally abusive mother—and the way he feels about men. Martin is already a weirdo in his isolated small town; he doesn’t need a sexuality crisis too. He’s a mess, but someone—or something—always seems to take care of him, usually a tall, sarcastic deputy by the name of Ian Forrester.

No one knows much about Ian, which is how he and his family prefer it. Ian has resigned himself to a lonely life keeping his secrets and guarding his forest. It’s safe to dream of Martin, because Martin never remembers Ian helping him. Besides, Martin barely speaks to Ian, so nothing can ever grow between them. Right?

But with the dragons—and the magic—back in Everlasting, suddenly anything seems possible, even a happily ever after for two men who never expected one....

Stalking Buffalo Bill

Shifter U
Dreamspun Beyond | #3

A Shifter U Tale

A smitten coyote isn’t the only one stalking Buffalo Bill.

A buffalo walks into a cafe. Sounds like the start of a bad joke, but for coyote shifter Donnie Granger, it’s the beginning of an obsession. Donnie is a little hyperactive and a lot distractible, except when it comes to William. He finally works up the nerve to approach William but is interrupted by a couple of violent humans.

While William—don’t call me Bill—is currently a professor, he once worked undercover against an international weapons-trafficking ring. Before he can settle into obscurity, he must find out who leaked his location and eliminate the thugs. He tries keeping his distance to protect Donnie, but the wily coyote won’t stay away.

It’ll take both Donnie’s skills as a stalker—er, hunter—and William’s super-spy expertise to neutralize the threat so they can discover if an excitable coyote and a placid-until-pissed buffalo have a future together.

After a devastating accident and a long stay in the hospital, the last thing petroleum engineer Sean Wilkinson wants to deal with is the settlement the oil company tries to force on him. He’ll never be able to work in his field again, his education is all but useless, and his surgeons are pessimistic about whether he’ll ever walk again.

I cowboy non...

Un libro della serie I cowboy non...

Rand McIntyre ha deciso di accontentarsi nella vita. Ama il suo piccolo ranch in California e allevare cavalli, e adora insegnare a cavalcare ai bambini, ma per averne di suoi e avere accanto qualcuno da amare dovrebbe ammettere di essere gay, mettendo a repentaglio tutto quello che ha costruito. Poi, un giorno, nonostante la fobia degli aerei, va in vacanza con i genitori a Hana, nelle Hawaii, e conosce l’affascinante e misterioso Kai Kealoha, un autentico cowboy hawaiano. Rand si affeziona al fratellino e alla sorellina di Kai tanto quanto si infatua di lui, ma Kai sembra avere più aculei di un porcospino e più segreti dell’esotica terra da cui proviene.

Kai ha sempre mantenuto la sua riservatezza e vive per proteggere i suoi “bambini”. Per il bene di tutti dovrebbe starsene alla larga da quel bellissimo cowboy, ma visto che si tratta solo di un haole che sta facendo una breve vacanza, che potrebbe mai succedere? Quando le più terribili paure di Kai e gli incubi peggiori di Rand si avverano nello stesso momento, non c’è molta speranza per due cowboy che non possono, o non vogliono, dire di essere gay.

Love's Charter | Book Two

Sequel to Setting the Hook

Love's Charter: Book Two

To achieve happiness, they’ll have to find the courage to be their own men.

As first mate on a charter fishing boat, Billy Ray meets a lot of people, but not one of them has made him as uncomfortable as Skippy—because he’s drawn to Skippy as surely as the moon pulls the tides, and he’s almost as powerless to resist. Billy Ray has spent his life denying who he is to avoid the wrath of his religious father, and he can’t allow anyone to see through his carefully built façade.

Skippy is only in town on business and will have to return to Boston once he’s through. After all, his father has certain expectations, and him staying in Florida is not one of them. But he doesn’t count on Billy Ray capturing his attention and touching his heart.

Billy Ray doesn’t realize just how much he and Skippy have in common, though. They’re both living to please their fathers instead of following their own dreams—a fact that becomes painfully obvious when they get to know each other and realize how much joy they’ve denied themselves. While they can’t change the past, they can begin a future together and make up for lost time—as long as they’re willing to face the consequences of charting their own course.
