Small dogs can make big changes… if you open your heart.

Carter Embree always hoped someone might rescue him from his productive, tragically boring, and (slightly) ethically compromised life. But when an urchin at a grocery store shoves a bundle of fluff into his hands, Carter goes from rescuee to rescuer—and he needs a little help.

Sandy Corrigan, the vet tech who eases Carter into the world of dog ownership, first assumes Carter is a crazy-pants client who just needs to relax. But as Sandy gets a glimpse of the funny, kind, sexy man under Carter’s mild-mannered exterior, he sees that with a little care and feeding, Carter might be “Super Pet Owner”—and decent boyfriend material to boot.

But Carter needs to see himself as a hero first. As he says goodbye to his pristine house and hello to carpet treatments and dog walkers, he finds there really is more to himself than a researching drudge without a backbone. A Carter Embree can rate a Sandy Corrigan. He can be supportive. He can be a man who stands up for his principles!

He can be the owner of a small dog.

A Model Escort

Dreamspun Desires | #77

What’s the value of love?

Shy data scientist Owen Quinn is brilliant at predictive models but clueless at romance. Fortunately, a new career allows him to start over hundreds of miles from the ex he would rather forget.

The truth is, he’s terrible at making the first move and wishes a connection didn’t have to revolve around sex.

Cal Mercer works for the Nick of Time Escort Service. He’s picky about his clients and has never accepted a regular who is looking for companionship over sex—but can the right client change his mind? And can real feelings develop while money is changing hands? Owen and Cal might get to the root of their true feelings... if their pasts don’t interfere.

Delitti e disastri

Delitti e disastri | Libro 1

Serie Delitti e disastri, Libro 1

I morti tengono la bocca chiusa.

L’ex topo d’appartamento Rook Stevens ha rubato molti oggetti preziosi in passato, ma mai prima d’ora era stato accusato di aver sottratto una vita. Una cosa è trovare una vecchia complice ad aspettarlo dentro al Potter’s Field, il suo negozio di cimeli della cultura pop, un’altra è inciampare nel suo cadavere.

Il detective Dante Montoya era convinto di aver chiuso per sempre con Rook Stevens, dopo che il suo precedente partner aveva falsificato delle prove per incastrare il ladro di gioielli che invece se l’era cavata impunemente. Così, quando interrompe la fuga di un sospettato di omicidio coperto di sangue, rimane senza parole nello scoprire che si tratta proprio dell’uomo che aveva giurato di mettere dietro le sbarre e che continua a fargli ribollire il sangue nelle vene anche a distanza di anni.

Rook è determinato a scrollarsi di dosso l’accusa di omicidio, anche se ciò significa prendere le distanze dal duro detective messico-cubano che lo ha arrestato. Ma come se un’artista della truffa morta non fosse abbastanza, presto se ne aggiungo altre e, mentre i cadaveri si ammucchiano ai suoi piedi, Rook è costretto a chiedere aiuto proprio all’ultima persona che in teoria dovrebbe credere alla sua innocenza… e l’unico uomo che non è mai riuscito a dimenticare.

Les flics de Carlisle | Tome 2

Les flics de Carlisle, tome 2

Carter Schunk est un agent de police dévoué avec un passé difficile et un grand cœur. Lorsqu’il est appelé pour une dispute conjugale, il trouve une femme mortellement blessée et un enfant, Alex, qui a désespérément besoin de soin. Les services sociaux sont appelés, et le dernier homme sur terre que Carter voulait voir passe la porte. Carter avait eu une aventure avec Donald un an auparavant et l’avait découvert aussi froid que la glace depuis que c’était fini.

Donald (le Glaçon) Ickle a eu une vie difficile qu’il ne partage avec personne, et il a fermé son cœur à tout le monde. C’est en partie pour se préserver lui-même d’être blessé et en partie la manière dont il gère son travail auquel il excelle, parce qu’il fait ce qui doit être fait sans être émotionnellement impliqué. Lorsqu’il rencontre à nouveau Carter, il maintient son habituelle distance, mais Carter arrive à se frayer un chemin sous sa peau, et contre son meilleur jugement, Donald laisse Carter le convaincre de prendre Alex quand il n’y a pas d’autre foyer d’accueil disponible. Carter propose même son aide pour s’occuper de l’enfant.

Donald a un passé dont il ne veut parler avec personne, surtout pas avec Carter qui a également le sien et qu’il garde aussi pour lui. Mais c’est le secret d’Alex qui pourrait les attirer ensemble ou les séparer, des secrets que le garçon n’est pas capable de leur dire et qui pourtant pourraient être la clé de leur bonheur à tous.

Die aufstrebenden Kochtalente Beck Douglas und Duncan Walters befinden sich seit Jahren auf dem Radar der Gourmetpaparazzi, da ihr Status als Erben der beiden größten Kochimperien weit und breit sie zu Kochkönigen macht. Beck ist durch seinen Charme und seine klassischen Gerichte als Co-Moderator in der beliebten Fernseh-Kochshow seines Onkels bekannt geworden. Duncan dagegen hat sich durch seine Weigerung, im Restaurant seines Vaters zu arbeiten, und seine avantgardistischen Methoden einen Ruf als Bad Boy in der Kochszene erworben. 

Außerdem haben sie eine Kochrivalität geerbt, die die berühmte Familienfehde der Hatfields und McCoys harmlos erscheinen lässt. Als sie mitten in einer hitzigen Diskussion fotografiert werden, überschlägt sich die Presse mit wilden Spekulationen. Zur Schadensbegrenzung fädeln Freunde aus dem PR-Bereich eine Scheinfreundschaft ein. Schnell wünschen sich beide aber insgeheim mehr.

Die Gängelungen seines Onkels reiben Beck auf und Duncans Verhältnis zu seinem homophoben Vater spitzt sich noch mehr zu, als sich Beck und Duncan näherkommen. Als Duncan in Becks Kochshow einsteigt, fällt es ihnen schwer, im überregionalen Fernsehen die Chemie zwischen ihnen zu verbergen. Ganz ohne Scherben wird sich ihre Beziehung – oder ihre Karriere – jedoch nicht auf die nächste Stufe heben lassen.

Un libro della serie L'inverno dei lupi

Il mondo non finisce con uno schianto, ma con un diluvio. I tornado invadono il cuore di Londra, New York soffoca sotto un’ondata di calore che fa sciogliere persino l’asfalto, mentre la Russia congela sotto uno spesso strato di permafrost. All’inizio le persone si uniscono, paracadutando aiuti dal cielo e facendo evacuare la popolazione, ma il clima non fa che peggiorare.

A Durham, il mite professore universitario Danny Fennick si prepara ad affrontare la tempesta. È cresciuto nelle Highlands scozzesi, perciò ha già vissuto inverni rigidi in passato. Inoltre, ha un vantaggio. È un lupo mutaforma. O, per essere precisi, un cane mutaforma. Meno impressionante, ma sempre utile. 

Tuttavia gli altri lupi mutaforma non credono che quello sia un inverno qualsiasi e stanno attraversando il Vallo per marcare il loro nuovo territorio. Tra loro ci sono l’ex di Danny, Jack, Principe Ereditario del branco del Numitor, inseguito dal fratello che vuole ucciderlo. 

L’inverno dei lupi non è bianco. È rosso come il sangue.

A GRAPHIC NOVEL ADAPTATION

Black & white interior illustrations with a color paperback cover.

State trooper Brandt’s new assignment to infiltrate a sex-cam operation puts him in a very uncomfortable position, especially since he’ll have to perform naked on camera for his audition. Fortunately his partner and best friend, Donnelly, has his back—whether that means helping Brandt shop gay boutiques for sexy underwear or offering Jäger and encouragement while he researches porn.

Despite his mortification, Brandt gives the audition his best “shot”—and becomes an overnight sensation. But to meet the man behind the operation, he'll have to give a repeat performance, this time live on webcam opposite the highest bidder. Donnelly makes sure to win that auction for his partner’s sake, but their plan has a flaw: faking it is not an option.

In the aftermath, Brandt is a humiliated mess trying desperately to come to terms with what he’s had to do for the job and his own mixed feelings. But Donnelly has been on a journey of discovery of his own. Suddenly everything the two men thought they knew about themselves and each other gets turned inside out. Meanwhile, they still have a case to solve… but it may not be the case they thought it was.

Two very different love stories grow side by side, each hidden from the other. But all of that changes at a family barbecue, when Mark decides it’s time for his kids to meet Steve and for him to meet James’s boyfriend, who none of them realize is Steve’s son, Dylan. The inevitable explosion means the two couples have some explaining to do to soothe the hurt feelings of their families—and lovers.
