Senator Davis Hudson has a silver tongue that has so far kept the stress off those lesser political organs, the heart and the brain. But he’s just made a political speech that will transform him from a Senate back-bencher to a public figure and presidential contender—whether he’s ready or not—and suddenly he wants his words and actions to mean something. It’s a crucial time in his political career, and
needs all the
publicity he can get. He just doesn’t expect the highlight of his first CNN
interview to be the conversation he has with makeup artist Kurt Lamb. Davis
Kurt is smart, politically savvy, and uninterested in being part of a congressional sex scandal, which is why he tolerates being
’s dirty little
secret. Despite the poor timing, Davis falls for him hard. Davis
But Kurt isn’t the only skeleton in
’s closet. Davis ’s ex-wife isn’t happy
that he’s pursuing the presidency now, after all her years of hard work, and he
has at least one more enemy on the Hill. Between them, they have all the tools
they need to ruin a presidential candidate—and maybe his shot at happiness too. Davis

refuses to reveal, Mordred decides “Software Engineer” has a nice ring to it.

Mordred's attempts to figure out his love life are hampered by constant interference from the Inquisitors of the Securitates Arcanarum, corporate espionage, real espionage, a sysadmin bent on enslaving the world, and Marketing's demands that Mordred ship software to the
. Then Alan gets himself kidnapped. To save him, Mordred must ally
himself with the company’s CEO, who will stop at nothing to rescue her lead
developer so he can get back to work. But the Prince doesn’t just want to rescue Alan, he wants a Happily Ever
After—and he will travel beyond Death itself to get one. Russian Federation
Too bad Alan is perfectly happy as a computer.

Even the sparkles, hearts, and small animals from the manga follow Teruo around Grant’s apartment. If Grant weren’t so distracted by lust, he’d find it really annoying.
When Teruo announces that he intends to stay with Grant because he has nowhere else to go, Grant is both pleased and terrified.

But if Grant can’t find the words to tell Teruo how he feels, Teruo might vanish as suddenly as he appeared.

A teenage runaway wanders the side of the road, a heartbeat away from despair, and is rescued by a long-haired angel on a Harley.
But that's just the beginning of their story.
Josiah Daniels wanted peace and quiet and a simple life, and he had it until he rescued Casey from hunger, cold, and exhaustion. Then Joe's life is anything but simple as he and his new charge navigate a world that is changing more rapidly than the people in it. Joe wants to raise Casey to a happy and productive adulthood, and he does. But even as an adult, Casey can't conceive of a happy life without Joe. The trouble is getting Joe to accept that the boy he nurtured is suddenly the man who wants him.
Their relationship can either die or change with the world around them. As they make a home, negotiate the new rules of growing up, and swerve around the pitfalls of modern life, Casey learns that adulthood is more than sex, Joe learns that there is no compromise in happy ever after, and they’re both forced to realize that the one thing a man shouldn’t be is alone.
The Isle of Where? by Sue Brown
When Liam Marshall’s best friend, Alex, loses his fight with colon cancer, he leaves Liam one final request: buy a ticket to Ryde, on the
Isle of Wight, and scatter
Alex’s ashes off the pier. Liam is tired, worn out, and in desperate need of a
vacation, but instead of sun, sea, sand, and hot cabana boys, he gets a rickety
old train, revolting kids, and no Ewan MacGregor.
Liam would have done anything for his friend, but fulfilling Alex’s final wish means letting go off the only family Liam had left. Lost, he freezes on the pier… until Sam Owens comes to his rescue.
Sam’s family has vacationed on the
Isle of Wight every year for
as long as he can remember, but he’s never met anyone like Liam. Determined to
make Liam’s vacation one to remember, Sam looks after him—in and out of the
bedroom. He even introduces Liam to his entire
family. But as Sam helps Liam let go, he’s forced to admit that he wants Liam
to hang on—not to his old life, but to Sam and what they have together.
