Lang Downs | Book Five

Sequel to Conquer the Flames
Lang Downs: Book Five

Seth Simms never wanted to be a cowboy, although to listen to his best friend, Jason Thompson, tell it, he isn’t one. He just happens to have lucked out in coming to live on Lang Downs with his brother ten years ago. He found enough stability to finish high school and go off to university, but he never really believed Lang Downs would be the same haven for him that it had become for so many others. He’s too messed up in the head. No one would accept someone with his issues.

All his life, Jason has had one goal: to come home to Lang Downs as resident veterinarian when they need his skills and jackaroo when they don’t. And it means he gets to spend time with Seth during his occasional visits, even though his dream of going from friends to lovers is hopeless since Seth is straight.

When Seth unexpectedly comes home to stay, Jason takes it as the boon it is. But juggling a relationship with another jackaroo and his friendship with Seth isn’t easy, and that’s before Jason realizes how deep Seth’s issues run and how dangerously Seth chooses to cope with them.

Lang Downs (Deutsch) | Buch 1

Buch 1 in der Serie - Lang Downs

Caine Neiheisel steckt nicht nur in seinem Job in einer Sackgasse fest, sondern auch in seiner Beziehung, als die Chance seines Lebens in seinen Schoß fällt: Seine Mutter hat die Schafstation ihres Onkels in New South Wales, Australien, geerbt, und Caine sieht es als die Chance auf einen Neuanfang, draußen auf einer Ranch, wo sein Stottern ihn nicht zurückhalten und sein Wille zu arbeiten seine Unerfahrenheit wettmachen würde.

Unglücklicherweise wechselt Macklin Armstrong, der Vorarbeiter von Lang Downs, der eigentlich Caines größter Verbündeter sein sollte, zwischen kühlem und völlig abweisendem Verhalten, und die anderen Arbeiter sind eher über Caines Stottern amüsiert, als durch seine Entschlossenheit beeindruckt … Zumindest, bis sie herausfinden, dass er schwul ist und ihre Belustigung sich in Zorn verwandelt. Es wird Caines ganze Entschlossenheit – und einen Sabotageakt eines feindlich gesinnten Nachbarn – brauchen, um die Männer von Lang Downs zu vereinen und Caine und Macklin eine Chance auf Liebe zu geben.


Per una giusta causa

Una buona causa

Una storia della serie Una buona causa

Jerry Lincoln ha un problema: il suo lavoro di consulente informatico a Sioux Falls è troppo per una persona sola. Fortunatamente, questo significa che può permettersi di assumere dei dipendenti. Jerry spera solo che il suo nuovo assunto, John Black Raven, sia più un aiuto che una distrazione, però è questo l’effetto che gli fanno i suoi occhi scuri e i suoi capelli lunghi.

John è venuto in città per studiare e per cercare quella vita che non potrebbe avere nella riserva indiana, ma la cosa più importante per lui è trovare e mantenere un posto di lavoro. Sei mesi fa, sua sorella è morta e i suoi nipoti sono stati dati in affidamento. Pur avendo la legge dalla sua parte, John non riesce a ottenerne la custodia: non può neppure vederli.

Quando Jerry e John cominciano ad avvicinarsi, John scopre di non essere da solo nella sua lotta. Jerry lo aiuta a ottenere il diritto di far visita ai bambini e gli sta accanto quando lui ne ha bisogno. Ma anche se vincono qualche battaglia, è difficile vincere la guerra: i servizi sociali sono coinvolti in un giro di denaro, politica e favoritismi, e i bambini nativi sono il loro pane quotidiano. Ma John e Jerry hanno tutta l’intenzione di combattere per una giusta causa e di vincere – su tutti i fronti.

They have to face the machinations of Brighton's aunt, Tanner’s ex suddenly wanting him back, and the need to find a way to make the farm financially viable before they lose Brighton’s family legacy.

Per Tommy Bradley, un bracciante al ranch Lost Cow nel Texas rurale, ammettere la sua sessualità è impossibile, anche se i suoi capi, Luke e Simon, sono gay: ha passato tutta la vita nascondendo la verità ai suoi genitori omofobi.

Poi, non ha paura dell’attrazione che prova per Tommy e rende le sue intenzioni molto chiare. Ma Noah non vuole celare la sua sessualità o quella del suo compagno, e non comincerà una relazione con Tommy se lui intende invece nasconderla. Dovendo scegliere se perdere Noah o uscire allo scoperto con i suoi genitori, Tommy fa il primo passo per ammettere chi è.

Ma Tommy non è il solo a dover affrontare delle sfide. Grazie a un eccesso di odio da parte del Pastore Jackson e di un gruppo di proprietari terrieri, Noah dovrà affrontare la possibilità di perdere la sua chiesa e il suo sostentamento.
