"A poignant, thought-provoking love story…. Do yourself a huge favor and BUY THIS!" Lorelei James, NY Times Bestselling author of the Rough Riders series

Lickety Split: Love won’t wait.

Patch Hastle grew up in a hurry, ditching East Texas for NYC to make his name as a DJ and model without ever looking back. When his parents die unexpectedly, he heads home to unload the family farm ASAP and skedaddle. Except the will left Patch’s worst enemy in charge: his father’s handsome best friend who made his high school years hell.

Tucker Biggs is going nowhere. Twenty years past his rodeo days, he’s put down roots as the caretaker of the Hastle farm. He knows his buddy’s smartass son still hates his guts, but when Patch shows up growed-up, looking like sin in tight denim, Tucker turns his homecoming into a lesson about old dogs and new kinks.

Patch and Tucker fool around, but they can’t fool themselves. Once the farm’s sold, they mean to call it quits and head off to separate sunsets. With the clock ticking, the city slicker and his down-home hick get roped into each other’s life. If they’re gonna last longer than spit on a griddle, they better figure out what matters—fast.

Lang Downs (Deutsch) | Buch 2

Buch 2 in der Serie - Lang Downs 

Der zwanzigjährige Chris Simms kann kaum den Kopf über Wasser halten. Nachdem er seine Mutter und sein Zuhause verloren hat, kämpft er darum, sich und seinen Bruder zu versorgen. Als er einem homophoben Angriff zum Opfer fällt, denkt er, dass sein Leben zu Ende ist. Aber er wird von den Jackaroos einer nahegelegenen Schafsstation gerettet. Er ist über das darauffolgende Jobangebot genauso erstaunt wie über die Tatsache, dass der Stationsbesitzer und der Vorarbeiter schwul sind. 

Für Chris ist Lang Downs ein Traum – einer, der noch besser wird, als er begreift, dass sein heimlicher Schwarm, der Jackaroo Jesse Harris, ebenfalls schwul und für einen Flirt zu haben ist. Alles geht gut, bis Chris klar wird, dass er mehr für Jesse empfindet, als ihr Deal erlaubt. 

Jesse ist ein Herumtreiber, der von Station zu Station zieht. Er sucht nicht nach etwas Dauerhaftem und da er überzeugt ist, dass Chris zu jung und zerbrechlich für eine richtige Beziehung ist, legt er Regeln fest, um die Dinge unverbindlich zu halten. Den Stationsbesitzer und seinen Vorarbeiter zusammen zu sehen, lässt Jesse darüber nachdenken, ob es nicht doch Vorteile hat, sich niederzulassen. Aber als er begreift, was Chris für ihn fühlt, gerät er in Panik. Er und Chris werden sich entscheiden müssen, ob die Möglichkeit zusammen glücklich zu werden, es wert ist, ein Risiko einzugehen, ehe das Ende der Saison sie trennt.

Nash Gallo and Luke Meyers seem like complete opposites on the surface. Nash is a city boy from Atlanta, while Luke is a rancher from rural Oklahoma. Nash is covered in tattoos and piercings, while Luke is self-conscious about his muscular, hairy body. Luke doesn’t have much sexual experience with other men, while Nash has plenty to go around.

But both men are lonely, and neither of them has ever been in love.

They also both have secrets. For Luke, it’s his shame over an affair with a local closeted and married man, something Nash accepts. Will Luke be as tolerant of what Nash is hiding—his job as a prostitute back in Georgia?

A week-long vacation on Luke’s ranch and the idyllic landscapes surrounding it gives both men the chance to relax and explore the attraction growing between them. But can the budding relationship survive secrets and small-town prejudices? As they search for the place where their lives might intersect, Nash and Luke risk far worse than broken hearts.

Per una causa antica

Una buona causa

Una storia della serie Una buona causa 

Il padre di Will Martin è un razzista; odia i nativi americani e vuole tenerli lontani dalla sua proprietà, anche se parte della terra del suo ranch è sacra per i Sioux. Quando la tribù chiede di potervi celebrare i propri riti, l’uomo rifiuta, ma Will non è d’accordo con lui. Da quando ha visto Takoda Red Bird durante una cerimonia religiosa Sioux, ne è rimasto affascinato, perciò decide di concedere alla tribù l’accesso alla terra. 

Takoda è abituato ad andare contro la volontà del proprietario testardo: spesso si intrufola in quel luogo sacro per andare a pregare e sa che Will lo ha visto. Quando, per puro spregio, l’allevatore mette all’asta la terra, Takoda sa che è venuto il momento di agire e unisce le forze con Will per impedirne la vendita. 

Lottare per questa causa ha più conseguenze di quante Will se ne aspettasse. All’inizio vuole soltanto aiutare la tribù a preservare la propria identità, ma alla fine trova la sua.

This isn’t the same old Wild West. The usual suspects are all present: cowboys, outlaws, and sheriffs. There’s plenty of dust, tumbleweeds, horses, and cattle on the range, but there are also magical gems, automatons, elementals, airships… even dinosaurs and genetically modified insects. Roaming among the buffalo and coyotes, you’ll encounter skinwalkers, mad engineers, mythical beings cloaked in darkness, and lovers who stay true to their oaths… even beyond the grave. On this frontier are those at the mercy of their own elaborate devices as well as men whose control of time and space provides a present-day vision of the West. There might even be a dragon hidden amongst the ghost towns and wagon trains.

If you like your Westerns with a splash of magic, a touch of steampunk, and plenty of passionate romance between men, these genre-bending tales will exceed expectations. 

Hold on to your hats, cowboys and cowgirls. The West is about to get weird, and you’re in for a hell of a ride.

The First Cowboys Don’t Story

Rand McIntyre settles for good enough. He loves his small California ranch, raising horses, and teaching riding to the kids he adores—but having kids of his own and someone to love means coming out, and that would jeopardize everything he’s built. Then, despite his terror of flying, he goes on a holiday to Hana, Hawaii, with his parents and meets the dark and mysterious Kai Kealoha, a genuine Hawaiian cowboy. Rand takes to Kai’s kid brother and sister as much as he drools over Kai, but the guy sports more prickles than a horned toad and more secrets than the exotic land he comes from.

Kai’s earned his privacy and lives to protect his “kids.” He ought to stay away from the big, handsome cowboy for everyone’s sake—but since the guy’s just a haole on a short vacation, how much damage can he do? When all of Kai’s worst fears and Rand’s darkest nightmares come true at once, there’s not much chance for two cowboys who can’t—or won’t—come out.
