A Love Can't Novel

Bullied as a child in small-town Kansas, Jeremy Cox ultimately escaped to Portland, Oregon. Now in his forties, he’s an urban park ranger who does his best to rescue runaways and other street people. His ex-boyfriend, Donny—lost to drinking and drugs six years earlier—appears on his doorstep and inadvertently drags Jeremy into danger. As if dealing with Donny’s issues doesn’t cause enough turmoil, Jeremy meets a fascinating but enigmatic man who carries more than his fair share of problems.

Qayin Hill has almost nothing but skeletons in his closet and demons in his head. A former addict who struggles with anxiety and depression, Qay doesn’t know which of his secrets to reveal to Jeremy—or how to react when Jeremy wants to save him from himself.

Despite the pasts that continue to haunt them, Jeremy and Qay find passion, friendship, and a tentative hope for the future. Now they need to decide whether love is truly a powerful thing or if, despite the old adage, love can’t conquer all.

Ennek Trilogy: Book One

Praesidium is the most prosperous city-state in the world, due not only to its location at the mouth of a great bay but also to its strict laws, stringently enforced. Ordinary criminals become bond-slaves, but the worst punishment—to be suspended in a dreamless frozen state known as Stasis—is doled out by the wizard and reserved for only the most serious of traitors. 

Ennek is the youngest son of Praesidium’s strict Chief. Though now a successful portmaster, Ennek grew up without much of a purpose, unable to fulfill his true desires and always skating on the edge of the law. But he is also haunted by the plight of one man, Miner, a prisoner for whom Stasis appears to be a truly horrible fate. If Ennek is to save Miner, he must explore Praesidium’s deepest secrets as well as his own.

Travis Miller ha un lavoro da operaio, un gatto di nome Elwood e una vita sentimentale patetica. L’unico raggio di luce nella sua esistenza è il bellissimo chitarrista davanti al quale passa, talvolta, quando torna a casa dopo il lavoro. Ma quando trova finalmente il coraggio di rivolgergli parola, Travis viene a sapere che quell’ex romanziere, Drew Clifton, soffre di afasia: riesce a capire tutto quello che Travis dice, ma non è capace di parlare o scrivere.

I due uomini soli danno vita a un’amicizia che presto sboccerà in una storia d’amore. Ma la comunicazione è soltanto una delle loro sfide: ci sono anche l’inesperienza di Travis con le relazioni e la sua situazione economica precaria. Se sono le parole a costruire un ponte tra due persone, cosa riuscirà a tenere insieme loro due?

Anche Travis ha i suoi problemi: ha perso un occhio e il lavoro. È però determinato ad aiutare Drew a confrontarsi di nuovo con successo col mondo, e un ingaggio in una caffetteria della zona per suonare la chitarra sembra un inizio promettente.

Nate Roth’s latest dumb stunt has left him with a broken arm, black eye, and stitched chin—and extra trepidation about visiting his family for Hanukkah. He fears his relatives will put him through another round of criticism for his foolish choices and his nonexistent love life. Several mishaps during his short journey to his parents’ house don’t bode well. But along the way he meets impossibly gorgeous Gio DiPietro—and maybe it’s time for Nate’s risk-taking impulses to turn out well for a change.

Jeff Dawkins è stato lasciato dal suo partner con un mutuo che non può permettersi e un paio di biglietti non rimborsabili per una vacanza di un mese in Europa. Nonostante la sua riluttanza a viaggiare, Jeff decide di partire comunque. Dopotutto, ha già pagato. Mette in valigia un Kindle pieno di romanzi gay e arriva a Venezia trepidante. Lì incontra il bellissimo e affascinante Cleve Prieto, un americano che vive all’estero, che gli offre di fargli da guida turistica. Jeff ha molti sospetti – non è nato ieri e qualcosa gli dice che Cleve non gliela racconta giusta – ma tutto è meglio che girare per i canali da solo. Grazie a lui, Jeff s’innamora di Venezia e inizia a riconciliarsi con il passato. Per la prima volta, si ritrova anche a provare dei sentimenti per qualcun altro. Ma non può essere sicuro di chi sia quella persona, perché il passato di Cleve rimane un mistero avvolto dalle bugie.

Poi una figura oscura riemerge dal passato di Cleve e Jeff deve scegliere se lasciare che questi scappi da solo o unirsi a lui in una corsa disperata attraverso l’Europa centrale. Forse Jeff riuscirà finalmente a vedere dietro la maschera di Cleve, se sopravvivrà al viaggio.

A drifter since his teens, Jimmy Dorsett has no home and no hope. What he does have is a duffel bag, a lot of stories, and a junker car. Then one cold desert night he picks up a hitchhiker and ends up with something more: a letter from a dying man to the son he hasn’t seen in years.

On a quest to deliver the letter, Jimmy travels to Rattlesnake, a small town nestled in the foothills of the California Sierras. The centerpiece of the town is the Rattlesnake Inn, where the bartender is handsome former cowboy Shane Little. Sparks fly, and when Jimmy’s car gives up the ghost, Shane gets him a job as handyman at the inn.

Both within the community of Rattlesnake and in Shane’s arms, Jimmy finds an unaccustomed peace. But it can’t be a lasting thing. The open road continues to call, and surely Shane—a strong, proud man with a painful past and a difficult present—deserves better than a lying vagabond who can’t stay put for long.

Bruto lleva una vida solitaria en un mundo donde la magia es algo común. Mide casi dos metros y treinta centímetros, es muy feo y por culpa de sus padres tiene mala reputación. Nadie, ni siquiera él, cree que sea posible ser más que un obrero. Pero los héroes son de todas las formas y tamaños, y cuando es mutilado mientras rescata a un príncipe, su vida cambia abruptamente. Es llamado a servir en el palacio de Tellomer como guardia para un solo preso. Parece algo fácil, pero resulta ser el reto de su vida.

Los rumores dicen que el prisionero, Gray Leynham, es un brujo y un traidor. Lo cierto es que ha pasado años en la miseria: ciego, encadenado y casi mudo por un tartamudeo extremo. Sueña con las muertes de otras personas antes de que se hagan realidad.

Cuando Bruto se acostumbra a la vida de palacio y llega a conocer a Gray y descubre su propio valor: primero como amigo y hombre, y después como amante. Pero Bruto también aprende que los héroes a veces se enfrentan a decisiones difíciles y que hacer lo que es correcto puede atraer el peligro sobre ellos.

Carter Evans is founder and editor-in-chief of Astounding!—a formerly popular spec fiction magazine currently in its death throes. Not only can he do nothing to save it, but stuck in a rathole apartment with few interpersonal connections, he can’t seem to do much to rescue his future either. And certainly all the booze isn’t helping. He snaps when he receives yet another terrible story submission from the mysterious writer J. Harper—and in a drunken haze, Carter sends Harper a rejection letter he soon regrets.

J. Harper turns out to be John Harper, a sweet man who resembles a ’50s movie star and claims to be an extraterrestrial. Despite John’s delusions, Carter’s apology quickly turns into something more as the two lonely men find a powerful connection. Inexplicably drawn to John, Carter invites him along on a road trip. But as they travel, Carter is in for some big surprises, some major heartbreak… and just maybe the promise of a good future after all.

Serie Scheletri, Libro 1

Dylan Warner è giovane, colto e conduce una vita del tutto normale. Non è il tipo che si nota facilmente, fino al giorno in cui, dopo una serata movimentata con un affascinante sconosciuto, non diventa un lupo mannaro. Nonostante tutto, però, Dylan vuole solo continuare a vivere la sua tranquilla – seppur solitaria – esistenza da architetto. Cerca di tenere sotto controllo gli impulsi selvaggi, ma ben presto decide che ne ha abbastanza della città e si trasferisce in campagna, dove gli sarà più difficile far del male al prossimo. La sua nuova casa è un po’ decrepita, ma promettente, e corredata per di più da un nuovo vicino: il sexy, anche se un po’ rozzo, Chris Nock.

Dylan assume Chris perché lo aiuti a ristrutturare casa, ma presto si accorge che le sue prime impressioni su di lui erano sbagliate e che Chris, così come la casa, potrebbe diventare un elemento fisso nella sua nuova vita. Tra il mostrare al suo capo quanto vale, resistere al seducente richiamo del suo pericoloso ex-amante e la sua limitata esperienza nel campo delle relazioni sentimentali, per Dylan è molto difficile capire come comportarsi… Come giustificare poi l’irresistibile voglia di ululare alla luna piena che lo coglie ogni mese?

Bruto conduce una vita solitaria in un mondo dove la magia è all’ordine del giorno. È un gigante di due metri e trenta di bruttezza e dai natali ignobili. Nessuno, incluso Bruto, si aspetta che lui sia più di un operaio. Ma gli eroi si presentano in tutte le forme e dimensioni e, dopo aver subito una mutilazione per salvare il principe, la vita di Bruto cambia bruscamente: è chiamato a servire al palazzo di Tellomer come guardia per un singolo detenuto. Sembra facile, ma si rivela essere la sfida della sua vita.

Le voci di palazzo dicono che il prigioniero, Gray Leynham, sia uno stregone e un traditore. Quel che è certo è che ha trascorso anni nello squallore: cieco, incatenato, reso quasi muto da una balbuzie estrema. Sogna la morte della gente, e quei sogni si avverano.

Mentre Bruto si abitua alla vita di palazzo e comincia a conoscere Gray, scopre anche il proprio valore, in primo luogo come amico e uomo, poi come amante. Ma Bruto impara anche che gli eroi, a volte, devono affrontare scelte difficili e che fare ciò che è giusto può portare nuovi pericoli.

Ery Phillips’s muse is MIA. He’s pretty sure his job as a graphic designer is to blame, because let’s face it, what kind of muse wants to draw grocery store logos and catheterized penises?

When Ery’s friends Dylan and Chris head off on a European vacation, Ery jumps at the chance to stay on their farm, hoping a stint in the country will encourage his muse to reappear. To be sure, the farm has attracted a few oddities—Dylan is a werewolf and the place was recently haunted—but Ery isn’t canceling his plans just because his friends warn him that there’s something strange going on in their pond. What he doesn’t expect is Karl, a beautiful naked man who appears at the water’s edge.

With Karl as his inspiration, Ery creates amazing paintings and begins to achieve the success he had previously only dreamed of. But Karl comes with certain challenges, causing Ery to question his own goals. Creating the life of his dreams with an unusual beloved may be more challenge than Ery can handle.

William Lyons Vergangenheit hat ihn in eine Rolle gezwängt, die nicht seiner Persönlichkeit entspricht. Als er die Fassade nicht mehr aufrechterhalten kann, trennt er sich von seiner Frau und nimmt eine Stelle als Hausmeister für ein altes Gebäude an, das schon seit Jahren leer steht. Über mehr als hundert Jahre war die psychiatrische Anstalt von Jelley’s Valley die größte Einrichtung ihrer Art in Kalifornien. William hofft, dass er hier die Zeit und Ruhe findet, endlich seine Dissertation zum Abschluss zu bringen und seine Scheidung abzuwarten. Als er in der kleinen Stadt ankommt, lernt er Colby Anderson kennen, der den örtlichen Lebensmittelladen betreibt und sich um das Postamt kümmert. Colby ist, ganz im Gegensatz zu William, ein lebensfroher und liebenswerter junger Mann. Und er ist unverkennbar schwul. Obwohl William sich durch Colbys extravagantes Verhalten zunächst abgestoßen fühlt, lernt er ihre neue Freundschaft mit der Zeit doch zu schätzen, und er nimmt Colbys Angebot an, sich von ihm in die Freuden des schwulen Sex einführen zu lassen.

Williams Selbstverständnis wird auf den Kopf gestellt, als er eine Blechdose findet, die seit den 1940er Jahren in einer Wand des Asyls verborgen war. Die Dose enthält Briefe, die im Geheimen von einem Patienten namens Bill verfasst wurden, der wegen seiner Homosexualität hier eingeliefert wurde. William fühlt sich durch die Briefe unmittelbar angesprochen und beginnt, sich für Bills Schicksal zu interessieren. William hofft, dass die über siebzig Jahre alten Briefe und Colbys Unterstützung ihm dabei helfen können, sein wahres Ich zu finden.
