Search and Rescue: Book Two

Dog wrangler Preston Echo has been in love with his brother’s best friend, copilot, and business partner since high school—and Damien Ward knew it. As Preston grew into a stunning, hard-willed man, Damien began to dream of Preston too. 

Then Damien almost died in a helicopter crash. While his physical wounds are slowly healing, the blows to his self-confidence and goodwill are almost worse. His body is broken and he’s afraid to fly—how can Preston love him now? 

When Preston’s brother goes on a search-and-rescue mission and disappears in an earthquake zone in Mexico, Preston and Damien are thrown together in an effort to find him and bring him back. Preston’s merciless honesty—and relentless passion—may leverage Damien into his bed, but can Damien overcome his fears to allow himself to stay there?

Riuscirà l’ex procuratore distrettuale Zach Richardson ad abbattere quei muri per liberare l’uomo passionale che si nasconde dietro allo stacanovista con la fobia di impegnarsi.

Ciò nonostante, la notte passata insieme ha significato molto per entrambi, tanto che vogliono provare a frequentarsi. C’è una possibilità che la loro storia d’amore funzioni, ma Zach dovrà convincersi che ad Asher basterà l’amore di un solo uomo e imparare a fidarsi di lui… e Asher dovrà imparare a fidarsi di sé stesso.

Of course he is attracted to bookish Foster, who works for the same construction company, but how will someone so small and delicate-looking master Benjamin?

A Tucker Springs Novel

The trails around Tucker Springs, Colorado, are perfect for horseback riding, and Nathan finally has the horse he’s been saving to buy for years. So it just figures that the first day he takes Tsarina out for a ride, some guy on a motorcycle spooks her and she throws him, leaving him with two broken limbs and no chance of enjoying the trails for the rest of the summer.

Mechanic and nomadic motorcycle enthusiast Ryan feels awful that his wrong turn resulted in injury and inconvenience. To atone, he offers to exercise Tsarina for Nathan, with one caveat: Nathan will have to teach him how to ride. 

Lessons turn to friendship and then to mutual attraction, but Nathan is determined that attraction is where it ends. He’s been hurt before, and he knows Ryan will never settle down. He might just be too skittish to give them a chance—unless Ryan can convince him to get back in the saddle.

Secrets: Book Four

When a Dom invites a shy bookstore owner to live out his fantasies, more than one life will be transformed.

Words are Heath Snow’s life. He can’t remember a time when he didn’t have his nose buried in a book. He couldn’t make a living as a writer, so he did the next best thing—he bought a bookstore.

The Pride display in the bookstore window may be what captured Xavier James’s attention, but the man enthusing about books interests him more. The BDSM book lying next to the cash register is a pleasant surprise, and when he draws attention to it, Heath’s flushed cheeks and bright eyes pique Xavier’s curiosity even further.

Xavier is about to learn that some things are more important than work, and Heath is about to step out of his comfort zone, into a place where fantasy and real life coexist.

Michael:

Two years ago I made a mistake—a big one. Then I added a couple more just for good measure. I screwed up my life, but I survived. Now I have the opportunity for a fresh start. Two years in NZ. Away from the LA gossip, a chance to breathe, to rebuild my life. But I’m taking my new set of rules with me. 

I don’t do relationships. 

I don’t do commitment. 

I don’t do white picket fences.

And I especially don’t do arrogant, holier-than-thou, smoking-hot K9 officers who walk into my ER and rock my world. 

 

Josh: 

One thing’s for certain: Dr. Michael Oliver is an arrogant, untrustworthy player, and I barely survived the last one of those. He might be gorgeous, but my daughter takes number-one priority. I won’t risk her being hurt again. I’m a solo dad, a K9 cop, and a son to pain-in-the-arse parents. 

I don’t have time for games. 

I don’t have time for taking chances. I don’t have time for more complications in my life. 

And I sure as hell don’t have time for the infuriating Dr. Michael Oliver, however damn sexy he is.

Milt Grabaur ha lasciato la sua vita, la sua casa e la sua carriera di insegnante in Ohio per ricominciare da capo. Il parcheggio per roulotte Summer Winds di Palm Springs, vicino alla catena montuosa di San Jacinto, sembra il posto ideale per dimenticare gli anni trascorsi ad assistere l’adorato marito malato di Alzheimer fino agli ultimi istanti di vita.

Billy Blue ha l’aspetto del tipico surfista californiano; un tempo sognava di fare il cantante ma adesso lavora in un supermercato e vive in una roulotte al Summer Winds. La sua priorità è superare la dipendenza dall’alcol, che lo ha costretto a rinunciare ai suoi sogni.

Billy è subito attratto dal suo nuovo vicino, quell’uomo dagli occhi grigi la cui tristezza e solitudine risvegliano in lui un sentimento che non ha mai provato prima: il vero amore.

Quando un temporale estivo provoca un’inondazione che danneggia la casa di Milt, Billy va in suo soccorso, con la speranza di conoscerlo meglio… e forse iniziare una relazione romantica.

Tuttavia, Milt è ancora devoto al suo defunto marito e teme che cedere all’attrazione per qualcun altro sia un tradimento.

Riusciranno i due uomini a liberarsi del peso del loro passato e a scoprire che proprio l’amore li può salvare?
