Ouvert et sans inhibitions, Ian McVeigh vit sans attaches depuis des années, alors il ne peut s’imaginer le désir inattendu et la possessivité qui s’emparent de lui en voyant pour la première fois David, un joueur de rugby sans emploi, ainsi que le nouveau jouet délicieux de son patron. David Kelly est un escroc et bien trop beau pour remarquer Ian, un homme avec trop peu de moyens pour le charmer. 

Mais un jour, David ne fait pas que le regarder, il le caresse, flirte et fait tout pour inviter Ian à prendre la place de son sugar daddy. Mais sera-t-il capable de se libérer des murs qu’il a bâtis autour de lui ? Ian ne connaît pas beaucoup le passé de David et ce qu’il ignore pourrait les blesser tous les deux. 

Ian dit que le passé de David importe peu, mais quand il le voit avec un autre homme d’âge mûr, il saute tout de suite aux conclusions. Les deux hommes devront affronter la vérité ou risquer de se perdre pour de bon.

Ian McVeigh è un seduttore felicemente single da anni, disinibito e apertamente gay, che non riesce a spiegarsi l’inaspettato desiderio e il sentimento di protezione che prova quando incontra David: rugbista, disoccupato e nuovo delizioso amante del suo capo. David Kelly è un mantenuto, e decisamente al di fuori della sua portata. È impossibile che un ragazzo così esigente e affascinante presti un briciolo di attenzione a un uomo come lui, con pochi mezzi per corteggiarlo.

Eppure, un giorno, David non solo lo guarda, ma lo tocca, lo stuzzica, e fa di tutto meno che invitare Ian a rubarlo al suo protettore. Ma David non può permettere a niente e a nessuno di abbattere i muri protettivi che ha costruito attorno a sé con tanta attenzione. Ian non sa molto del suo passato, e quello che non sa potrebbe nuocere a entrambi.

Ian sostiene che i trascorsi di David non abbiano importanza, ma quando lo vede con un ricco uomo maturo, pensa immediatamente al peggio. Dovranno entrambi imparare a essere onesti, se non vorranno restare da soli per sempre.

Ian McVeigh, geoutet und ungehemmt, hat seit Jahren eine flüchtige Beziehung nach der anderen. Deshalb kann er die ungewohnten Gefühle nicht einordnen, die der arbeitslose Rugby Spieler David – das neueste und höchst verlockende Spielzeug seines Bosses – bei ihm auslöst: eine Mischung aus Begehren und Beschützerinstinkt. Aber David Kelly ist ein Callboy und ein paar Nummern zu groß für Ian. Der bezaubernde, aber geldgierige David würde sich nie mit einem Mann wie Ian abgeben, der nicht die Mittel hat, ihn zu umwerben.

Dennoch beachtet David Ian eines Tages nicht nur, er berührt ihn, flirtet mit ihm und fordert ihn geradezu auf, ihn seinem Gönner abspenstig zu machen. Aber David kann niemanden zu nahe an sich heranlassen. Ian weiß nicht viel über Davids Vergangenheit und das, was er nicht weiß, kann ihnen beiden schaden.

Ian sagt, dass Davids Vergangenheit keine Rolle spielt, aber als er David mit einem älteren Mann sieht, nimmt er sofort das Schlimmste an. Beide Männer müssen sich der Wahrheit stellen, um einander nicht endgültig zu verlieren.

Eugene and the Box of Nails

2017 Advent Calendar | Stocking Stuffers

Every time it seems like things are looking up for Eugene Kraft, disaster hits. Bankruptcy, a bigoted sibling, and a back-breaking accident have all left him with little money and less faith in the universe.

His last-ditch effort at peace is the small lakeside property where he is building a tiny house from recycled materials. If he can get it livable before the cold sets in, maybe he’ll be okay. Hopefully Cullen, the foreman on the construction site next door, won’t notice Eugene pilfering discarded materials from his dumpster.

When Cullen stops by to talk to Eugene, he’s sure the gig is up—but all Cullen wants is a date. Can two things go right in Eugene’s life? At first it seems possible. Projects on Eugene’s house are getting completed by what he dubs “construction elves” while he’s off site. But like Eugene predicted, his good fortune can’t last, and soon he has a tough choice to make: give up his home… or the man of his dreams.


A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2017 Advent Calendar "Stocking Stuffers."

Off Stage: Set Three

Kilmer and Jacko’s relationship has been foundering for a long time. With the end in sight and despairing that he might never find a Dom who suits him, Kilmer heads to a local bar to drown his sorrows—and meets country singer Tanner.

Tanner feels oddly protective of the broken man and eventually convinces Kilmer to hire him to help remodel the small, sad house Kilmer once shared with Jacko. As Tanner and Kilmer get to know each other, Kilmer regains his lost independence and Tanner’s dominant streak rises to the surface. But will it be a help or a hindrance to the trust they’re trying to build?

The answer might lie in the music Kilmer gave up not long after he met Jacko. Music always granted him solace, clarity, and an outlet for his emotions, and with Tanner’s encouragement, he picks up where he left off. Playing together eases them into honest communication, and though a happily ever after will still take patience and work, taking a chance on each other sounds sweeter with every note.

Off Stage: Sets One & Two

The grunge band Firefly was Trevor “Damian” Learner and Lenny Stevens’s dream since they were boys growing up in rural Ontario. They found the right people to live the dream with them, even landed the best representation in the business, but the higher their star rose, the harder it became to ignore their issues.

Now, needing guidance beyond what each other and their bandmates can offer, Damian and Lenny must let go of a relationship that’s hurting everyone around them and accept support from men who know what they need better than they do. Two submissives will never make each other happy without the dominance they both crave but can’t find in each other.

First Damian needs to get his life on the right path and accept the rules Stan sets forth for him. Then Lenny will have to step into the wings, leave the spotlight, and concentrate on his own well-being—and Vance’s guiding hand—before they can help the band reach its potential.

The men can’t keep apart, and they gradually learn that everything they thought they knew about each other might be wrong.
