A Series of Fates: Book One

Fate is a funny thing. Some try to cut its threads, while others wrap themselves in it like a blanket.

Young wolf shifter Max is cocky and crass. Unlike others his age, he has yet to discover a talent that will serve his pack. Since childhood, he’s been convinced the pack alpha is his mate, but Alpha Christian cannot envision unfiltered and directionless Max taking the place of his elegant mother at the head of the pack. As Max begins to build a life with his best friend, he also begins to see that maybe what he thought was inevitable was all in his head, and it’s time to move on.

Or are they both denying fate?

A volte, il giorno più bello della tua vita è quello che non avresti mai potuto immaginare.

Joe Cohen ha dedicato gli ultimi due anni a una cosa sola: accudire e nutrire Kade Bosa, suo socio nella loro agenzia investigativa, coinquilino e migliore amico. Per lui Kade rappresenta il mondo, anche se alla loro relazione manca ciò che Joe desidera di più. Ma non vuole fare pressioni: Kade ha un passato travagliato, e Joe è abbastanza certo di essere l’unica cosa che gli impedisce di crollare.

Allontanato dalla sua stessa famiglia, Joe sa bene quanto sia importante tenere strette le persone a cui si vuole bene, ma non si sarebbe mai aspettato che il suo passato e il suo presente si scontrassero, e che la stessa cosa succedesse a Kade. La prova in cui si sono imbattuti potrebbe cambiare le loro vite, dal tragico passato di Kade al loro lavoro. E potrebbe persino regalare loro il futuro che Joe non avrebbe mai osato desiderare…

On dit que les opposés s’attirent, mais est ce qu’il est intelligent de céder à cette attraction ?

Mais Phillip ne se fait pas suffisamment confiance pour être l’homme que Tristan voudrait plus d’une nuit.

Avec l’aide d’un couple de grands pères cupidons, Tristan et Phillip pourraient trouver le courage de sortir de leur zone de confort pour découvrir ce qui leur a manqué toute leur vie.

Weber Yates’s Traum berühmt zu werden, ist im Begriff, sich auf einen Job als Ranchhelfer in Texas zu reduzieren. Seine einzige Beziehung besteht zu einem Mann, der für ihn eigentlich so weit außerhalb seiner Reichweite ist wie der Mond. Oder zumindest wie San Fransisco, wo Weber einen Zwischenstopp einlegt. Er will ihn ein letztes Mal sehen, bevor er sich mit dem einfachen, einsamen Leben abfindet, dass ein Frosch wie er seiner Meinung nach verdient hat. 

Cyrus Benning ist ein erfolgreicher Neurochirurg. Details entgehen ihm daher nie. Vom ersten Tag an hat er den Prinz in der Kleidung des gescheiterten Bullenreiters erkannt. Doch dabei zuzusehen, wie Web ihn stets auf Neue verlässt, wird immer schwerer und er ist nicht sicher, wie viel sein Herz noch ertragen kann. Jetzt hat Cyrus eine letzte Chance, Weber zu beweisen, dass es nicht dessen Job ist, der ihn zu Cyrus perfektem Mann macht, sondern Weber selbst. Mit der Hilfe der vor kurzem zerbrochenen Familie seiner Schwester ist er bereit, Weber zu zeigen, dass das Heim, das der Mann immer gesucht hat, schon immer genau hier – bei ihm – war. Cyrus hat vielleicht einmal ein Ultimatum gestellt, doch jetzt hat es sich zu einem Schwur gewandelt: Er wird Weber nie wieder aus seinem Leben lassen.

Can a Navajo trans teen and a nerdy Catholic find the place they belong... and maybe themselves? In the desert, anything is possible…. 

When Wren came out as transgender before his senior year, it cost him most of his friends. His father hopes joining a Boy Scout troop might help Wren meet other young men his age and be accepted for who he is.

Felipe Nieves wants the new guy in the troop to feel comfortable, and he reaches out to Wren. They become fast friends… with something more beneath the surface. Those feelings confuse Felipe, since his religion considers this a sin—and he’s always assumed he was straight—but he can’t help pining for Wren.
