Friends since childhood Zach and Ethan come from different worlds… and it’s never been more apparent.

For the past semester, Ethan has been struggling with a botched operation that cost him what remained of his vision. He lives in a squalid apartment with his loving aunt and his alcoholic mother, barely scraping by. How can he tell rich-boy Zach, who has the perfect life, that he has gone blind?

When Zach returns from a semester abroad, the only thing on his mind is confessing his love for Ethan. Discovering Ethan has lost his sight doesn’t change his feelings. Desperate to prove his love, he comes out to his conservative parents—and finds himself disowned.

Cut off by his family, Zach has only Ethan to lean on. But how can he, when Ethan suffers one devastating personal loss after another? Instead Zach resolves to stand on his own and do what it takes to support them both.

Through grief, denial, depression, trauma, and therapy, Zach and Ethan struggle to be there for each other. Will their love be enough for them to build a future together that is nothing like either of them ever imagined?

Dante Vianelli and Cully Cromwell have been in love since college, when Dante saved Cully from the world’s worst roommate and introduced him to his friends. Seven years later, they’re still roommates and they’re still in love… but they’ve never become lovers.

Now a catastrophic spell gone wrong has cut them off from their coven. Wandering their suburban prison alone, separated by the walls of their own minds and gaps in the space-time continuum, Cully and Dante are as stuck as they have been for the past seven years.
 
And they’ll remain lost in their memories—unless they confront the truths that kept them from taking the step from friends to lovers and trust their friends and coven to get them out. But it’s easier said than done. Those walls didn’t build themselves. Dante’s great at denial, and Cully’s short on trust. Can they do the work it will take to get into each other’s arms and back to the sunlight where they belong?

When a case reopens old wounds from the kidnapping of his younger sister, police officer Robert Fenner is told in no uncertain terms that he needs a break. And maybe his superiors are right. He books a flight to visit an old friend, who happens to be the one who got away, and hopes for the best. 

 

Electronic security consultant Dixie Halewood works from his home in Paris, where he lives with his adopted son, Henri. Dixie doesn’t expect a message from an old flame asking for a place to stay, but he agrees. Their past is just that—the past.

Things between them aren’t as settled as they thought—Henri, Paris, and proximity work their magic. The two men are drawn closer and old flames burst back to life, but Dixie’s work brings a new threat to their safety and the budding family they missed out on the first time around.

Quand l’inspecteur Ruan Nicholls rencontre Ivo Rogers, il sait immédiatement que ce jeune tatoueur va bouleverser sa vie bien rangée. Fauteur de troubles par nature, Ivo est quelqu’un que Ruan non seulement ne comprend pas, mais qu’il n’est pas sûr de vouloir comprendre. Tout chez Ivo est plein de vie, impétueux, prétentieux et arrogant, mais Ruan ne veut rien de lui.

Ou du moins, c’est le mensonge qu’il se répète pour amoindrir le désir qu’il éprouve pour cet enfant terrible, issu des services sociaux, que le destin a placé au travers de sa route.

Deux choses importent dans la vie d’Ivo Rogers : sa famille et 415 Ink, le salon de tatouage qu’il a fondé avec ses quatre frères. Si sa famille porte encore des cicatrices après s’être battue contre les services sociaux pendant de nombreuses années, le lien qui existe entre eux est fort, assez pour soutenir Ivo dans les moments difficiles.

Mais voilà que ce dernier doit faire face à un nouveau défi quand il tombe amoureux d’un policier de la vieille école, qui a des idées reçues sur ce à quoi un homme doit ressembler. Ruan incarne la promesse d’une vie qu’Ivo n’aurait jamais pensé avoir un jour, mais leurs manières opposées de voir le monde menacent toute chance d’une relation entre eux. Il est facile d’être mal compris quand on est le fauteur de troubles de la famille, mais Ivo a confiance en Ruan : celui-ci saura accepter qui il est et l’aimer comme il le mérite.

Finding the right romantic partner is always a challenge—especially when your first spouse turns out to be a greedy, business-obsessed hardass who winds up on her CEO office floor with a bullet through her brain. 

After the murder of her first wife, Elaine is ready for a vacation and a solid relationship with a woman who only has time for her. Thanks to some found alien technology, Elaine can get what she wants… sort of. Okay, so a computer-generated tangible holographic image of a twentieth-century film star is about as far from “solid” as it gets. But as her themed pleasure cruise on a passenger starliner progresses and an additional plot to murder Elaine reveals itself, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to her fantasy companion.

Ricky might be the result of exceptional programming, but she proves to be more than the sum of her particles. She shows Elaine more affection, and eventually more protection, than any so-called “real” woman in her life ever has, leaving Elaine to wonder—are Ricky’s feelings for her truly artificial? Or is this REEL TO REAL LOVE?

Veterinarian Dane Vincent is used to being unlucky in love. That’s why his crush on new friend Ben is No Big Deal. He’s more than happy to swoop to Ben’s rescue when he brings a ferret into his practice. It’s what friends do—and vets.

Ben Clifford came to Lockstone for a new job and a fresh start. He didn’t expect to make friends, never mind a tightknit group of them. They’re all wacky and wonderful, and he fits right in, something he’s never done before. They even support him when he finds a ferret at work and decides to keep the cute little bundle of joy.

There’s just one tiny problem. Ben’s house doesn’t allow pets.

Moving into Dane’s spare room is meant to be temporary, but the more time he spends with him, the less he wants to leave. They connect on a level he’s never experienced before, and slowly but surely, the feelings of friendship Ben has for Dane morph into something deeper.

The question is…does he have the courage to act on them?

 Chère Ruth,


Je ne suis pas d’humeur à fêter Noël. Après une relation amoureuse partie en fumée, je suis retourné dans ma ville natale du Kansas rural. Puis ma mère est décédée. Je suis très occupé par mon travail de capitaine des pompiers, et maintenant par la chronique de conseils de ma mère, que j’ai reprise à contrecœur. Il y a un nouveau venu sexy dans la rue, un homme avec une petite fille et un malheureux mépris pour la sécurité incendie. Il semble vouloir nouer une amitié, mais cela crée des problèmes qui pourraient être trop brûlants pour moi. Je n’ai vraiment pas besoin de décorations inflammables et de trop de nourriture de Noël en ce moment.

Comment suis-je censé prodiguer de bons conseils aux autres alors que je n’arrive pas à mettre de l’ordre dans ma propre vie ?

– Rabat-joie, Bailey Springs

An Inevitable Duets Romance

When dance instructor Jamie Griffin choreographs a contemporary ballet pas de deux to a love song by rock band Inevitable Thorns, he doesn’t expect the band’s keyboardist, Beau Davis, to witness it. He definitely doesn’t expect the steamy one-night stand that follows.

Beau leaves to continue touring, but he can’t get Jamie or his passion out of his head... especially once a video of the dance goes viral. This leads to a chance for the two of them to reconnect on tour, with Jamie performing his dance while the band plays live. The lines between a casual fling and a forever romance blur as rock music and ballet join to create magic onstage.

That magic suffuses their relationship too, but the price of fame is steep. When an explosive interview threatens the foundation of what they’re building together, will Beau and Jamie set the record straight and define their relationship—and their art—on their own terms? Or will the stars they’re reaching for elude their grasp?

La Voûte – Livre II

Terrence Moss. Conrad Harris. Gold Team Leader. Darius Hawthorne. La Voûte. Devoir jongler avec toutes ces identités en ébranlerait plus d’un, mais pour Darius, c’est juste la routine habituelle. Après avoir clos un chapitre de sa vie, il ne laisse derrière lui qu’un nom – et toutes les personnes auxquelles il était familier. À plus de quarante ans, il n’a réussi à garder le contact qu’avec une poignée de collègues, un nombre d’amis encore inférieur et aucun partenaire notable… mais les choses sont sur le point de changer.

Ce nouveau chapitre risque de bousculer l’ordre défini de sa vie : un domicile fixe, une identité qu’il s’est nouvellement réappropriée, une famille inattendue, et c’est sans parler de sa rencontre fortuite avec le seul homme que Darius ait jamais aimé : Efrem Lahm. Les raisons pour lesquelles ils se sont séparés demeurent valables et regagner une confiance mutuelle n’a rien d’une priorité entre eux. Malgré tout, Efrem est déjà certain d’une chose : il ne laissera pas Darius lui échapper cette fois-ci… et ce dernier va devoir décider s’il est prêt à retenter sa chance et lui offrir son cœur après s’être tant fait attendre.

A Kildevil Cove Murder Mystery

They say it never rains but it pours. Royal Newfoundland Constabulary Inspector Danny Quirke would have to agree.

First someone murders a vulnerable Kildevil Cove man and dumps him in an abandoned well. Then the body of a sex-trafficking victim washes up on a nearby beach. Danny has to get to the bottom of both deaths, but with few leads and little support from his superiors, he’s spinning his wheels in a mud pit of a case. Vital resources go missing, witnesses disappear, and suspects proliferate.

Each step toward the truth brings him two steps back. Help comes in the form of Scottish investigator Martin Belshawe, but he may not be who he says he is, and someone in the highest echelons of the Newfoundland Constabulary is lying to Danny. Even Danny’s lover, Tadhg Heaney, whom he looks to for emotional support, seems to know more than he should about the shady characters who keep popping up in the investigation.

With time running out, Danny must decide who, if anyone, he can trust—before the sex traffickers claim their next victims. But on an island, there's no escaping the tide.
