To protect his buddy, there’s nothing Griff wouldn’t do…until a nearly bankrupt Dante proposes the worst possible solution: HotHead.com, a gay porn website where uniformed hunks get down and dirty.

It´s amateur night at the ultra-private, members-only Caloosa Club on the Fort Myers, Florida, riverfront. Trouble begins when the fat lady sings. Her triumph is sweet. But, only hours later, the diva lies near death in a hotel room upstairs, the victim of a vicious beating. Hotel manager Dan Ewing and his sidekick, Lee County Detective Bud Wright, soon discover that this was no lady and that a variety of unsavory characters hoped to dance on the dead diva´s grave. In Southwest Florida in January 1951, almost anyone who wanted to have a little illicit fun put his - or her - life on the line. Dan, a World War II veteran who survived Japanese torpedoes, five days on a life raft and the death of his Navy lover, feels he´s found more safety and freedom than any gay man might expect. Dealing cards, serving untaxed mixed drinks and selling the services of escorts of both sexes, he acts as if he has nothing to lose. Yet he does. Bud, his secret lover, is a former Marine sergeant twice decorated for valor. Strong and brave but deeply conventional, he lives with the uneasy knowledge that every time he and Dan make love they commit a felony according to the laws he is sworn to uphold. The Caloosa, exposed to the pitiless glare of a front-page homicide investigation, attracts unwanted attention. The mounting pressure, instead of forging a stronger bond between Dan and Bud, threatens to tear them apart. As the jeopardy to both escalates, Dan realizes he may lose the one man who holds the key to the peace and harmony of his postwar world. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Rob Ericksen.

For the last year, Jay Warren has struggled to find the nerve to tell his wife he´s gay. Every time he gets the chance, though, he freezes up. He´s ashamed of hiding it all this time, he doesn´t want to hurt her, and the guilt has been almost unbearable. When his wife dies suddenly, Jay´s conscience threatens to eat him alive. Funeral director Scott Lawson deals with the bereaved every day, and he´s all too familiar with the inside of the closet. He offers Jay some much-needed compassion and understanding, and from that connection comes a friendship that quickly - perhaps too quickly - turns into something more. But are grief, guilt, and loneliness the only things tying them together? Or, will Scott get fed up with being used as an emotional crutch before Jay realizes what he has? ungekürzt.

Robby Dalton is the perfect all-American boy.

But emotionally, he doesn´t fit anywhere, and he can´t connect with a woman beyond a few uninspired dates. Robby´s not in the closet, because he´s never guessed he´s gay. Now he owns a small commercial construction company, and one night after work, he runs into Savannah Meyers. He finds her fascinating and agrees to a date, thinking maybe this woman would be different. But Savannah has her own agenda. She is looking for a love match for her roommate, Tristan Chartrand, whom she rescued from the streets years ago. He´s like a brother, and her only family, so she wants him safe and happy. Her plan seems to begin well, because when Robby meets Tristan, he´s surprised to find it´s Tristan he wants, not Savannah. But some people in Robby´s life don´t approve of Tristan´s lowly station in life, and some don´t approve of Robby being gay.

From the author of the beloved novel Three Junes comes a rich and commanding story about the accidents, both grand and small, that determine our choices in love and marriage. Greenie Duquette, openhearted yet stubborn, devotes most of her passionate attention to her Greenwich Village bakery and her four-year-old son, George. Her husband, Alan, seems to have fallen into a midlife depression, while Walter, a traditional gay man who has become her closest professional ally, is nursing a broken heart. It is at Walter´s restaurant that the visiting governor of New Mexico tastes Greenie´s coconut cake and decides to woo her away from the city to be his chef. For reasons both ambitious and desperate, she accepts, and finds herself heading west without her husband. This impulsive decision will change the course of several lives within and beyond Greenie´s orbit. Alan, alone in New York, must face down his demons; Walter, eager for platonic distraction, takes in his teenage nephew. Yet Walter cannot steer clear of love trouble, and despite his enforced solitude, Alan is still surrounded by women: his powerful sister; an old flame; and an animal lover named Saga, who grapples with demons all her own. As for Greenie, living in the shadow of a charismatic politician leads to a series of unforeseen consequences that separate her from her only child. We watch as folly, chance, and determination pull all these lives together and apart over a year that culminates in the fall of the twin towers at the World Trade Center, an event that will affirm or confound the choices each character has made, or has refused to face. Julia Glass is at her best here, weaving a glorious tapestry of lives and lifetimes, of places and people, revealing the subtle mechanisms behind our most important, and often most fragile, connections to others. In The Whole World Over she has given us another tale that pays tribute to the extraordinary complexities of love. Language: English. Narrator: Denis O´Hare.

I´m about to have quite the transformative sexual experience.... For years now, I´ve harbored a secret gay crush on my best friend, Kyle. The two of us have been extremely close since high school, but all this time, I don´t think he´s had any inkling whatsoever as to my sexual orientation. He´s about to get married now, and I decide to act at last in fear that I might never again have the opportunity to do so. The two of us are on a camping trip together, drunk as skunks, when I seduce him in our tent, and the two of us make sticky, passionate love. When I wake up, however, my long pined-for lover is gone, along with all his possessions, and I immediately scramble from the tent, knowing that I might have sabotaged our relationship forever. But when I emerge from the tent, I´m stunned out of my wits to see a fully grown grizzly bear looming over me, snarling, and ready to rip me to pieces. My only salvation comes at the hand of an intervening werewolf, who drives away the bear, presumably killing him somewhere off in the woods. Then, my savior returns, fully human again, and it turns out that I´m expected to offer my own version of bodily payment in return for his heroic efforts....
