The sea is full of jealously guarded secrets, but everything washes up eventually….

Betrayed by a trusted partner, Nathan figures he might as well be lost and heartbroken in the sunshine, and he heads to the coast of South Carolina, to stay with a friend and find a new direction for his life. But despite his efforts, he is lost in the fog, unable to find a guiding light and sometimes unable to find a reason to go on. His only respite from depression and anxiety is the soothing rhythm of the tides and the comfort he draws from proximity to the water.

When the sea sends a lifeline in the form of a strange and beautiful man, it’s easy for Nathan to ignore all the things that don’t add up about his new friend. But the tides can turn without notice, and it’s those mystical traits that will either finally lead Nathan safely to shore or drown him in confusion and despair.

Ein Titel der Mangrove Stories Serie

Sich in einen Kollegen zu vergucken, ist selten eine gute Idee, speziell für einen Mann, der eine letzte Chance bekommt, seine Karriere zu retten. Doch von dem Moment an, in dem Dwyer Knolls dem gutaussehenden, aber unbeholfenen Takeo Hiroyuki begegnet, scheint er nur noch die falschen Entscheidungen zu treffen.

Takeos Leben besteht aus einer Reihe vergeblicher Versuche, seinen konservativen japanischen Vater zufrieden zu stellen. Unglücklicherweise ist die erfolgreiche Ausübung seines Jobs genauso schwierig für ihn wie der Wechsel von homo- zu heterosexuell. Aber ein Augenmerk auf Dwyer Knolls zu haben – darin ist er wirklich gut.

Auf einer Geschäftsreise nach Mangrove, Florida, wird aus Takeos` und Dwyers zögerlicher Freundschaft plötzlich mehr – viel mehr. Ist ihre Liebe stark genug, um ihre Karrieren dafür zu riskieren, oder haben sie die plötzliche, intensive Leidenschaft nur der lauen Brise des blauen Ozeans zu verdanken?

Wolf shifter Falco Gladstone knew Carter McCloud was his mate when they were in seventh grade, but school and the foster care system tore them apart. Years later, Falco is second in command of his Michigan pack, serving under an uncle who cares more about his own power than the welfare of their people. The alpha orders Falco to marry and produce offspring—but Falco’s already found his mate, and mates are forever. 

Carter’s lonely life is turned upside down when he detects a familiar scent on the wind. The mates might have found each other, but their happily ever after is far from guaranteed. Falco’s commitment to Carter puts him at odds with his uncle’s plans, and when one of the alpha’s enforcers starts shadowing the couple, something must be done—something that will either cement their relationship or destroy it once and for all.

Serie Storie di Mangrove

Innamorarsi di un collega non è quasi mai una buona idea, specialmente per un uomo a cui è appena stata data l’ultima possibilità per salvare la propria carriera. Ma fin dal primo momento in cui Dwyer Knolls vede Takeo Hiroyuki, bellissimo ma socialmente inetto, sembra destinato a prendere solo delle pessime decisioni.

La vita di Takeo è scandita da continui fallimenti nel tentativo di rendere orgoglioso il padre, un uomo giapponese fissato con le tradizioni. Sfortunatamente, avere successo negli affari per Takeo è difficile quanto cambiare il proprio orientamento sessuale. In effetti, l’unica cosa in cui sembra eccellere è notare Dwyer Knolls.

Quando i due partono per Mangrove, in Florida, per un viaggio di lavoro, la loro amicizia incerta diventa più solida e si trasforma in qualcosa di più profondo. La loro improvvisa sintonia sarà abbastanza forte da permettere loro di costruire un futuro insieme, oppure si tratta solo di un abbaglio ispirato dalla brezza dell’oceano?

Un libro della serie Wrench Wars - Gli assi dei motori

Che cosa è considerato “normale”? 

Quando Brandon Kenner si presenta all’officina dove lavora Kasey Ralston con una Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 del 1970, Kasey perde la testa sia per l’uomo che per la macchina. Ma Kasey nasconde un segreto imbarazzante: la sua passione per le vecchie muscle car va oltre ciò che viene considerato normale. La sua bizzarra fissazione lo ha portato a isolarsi: dalla famiglia, che lo ha estraniato, e dai colleghi, dai quali si tiene alla larga. 

Ma quando Brandon scopre il segreto del bel meccanico, non ne resta affatto disgustato, anzi. Trova che Kasey sia intrigante ed è deciso ad averlo tutto per sé.

Tutto di Brandon sembra mandare su di giri il motore di Kasey, che di certo non disdegna l’idea di sporcarsi le mani con un uomo così affascinante. Ma Kasey è preoccupato di ciò che accadrà dopo: ci sarà un futuro per loro due? Anche se in passato tutte le sue speranze per una relazione a lungo termine sono state deluse, non può fare a meno di sognare che, nonostante la propria mania, Brandon sarà l’eccezione.
