Marty Green has two loves in life: Horses and basketball. But suffering a stroke during his first college game throws a wrench in his plans. After months spent in the hospital, recuperating under the zealous care of his overprotective parents, Marty realizes he needs to be on his own, so when he´s offered a job at a ranch owned by his doctor´s good friend, he takes it. When veterinary assistant Quinn Knepper sees Marty for the first time, his heart nearly stops. He´s smitten, and Marty appears interested though shy. There are just two problems: Quinn´s father wants him to hide his sexuality from the world, and Marty´s Wyoming Senator father is a homophobe with no idea his son is gay-which Quinn learns when the senator proposes an amendment banning gay marriage. Dealing with two unsupportive families is a heavy burden, but Quinn vows to make it work. Unfortunately, that may mean putting his life on hold while Marty overcomes his emotional isolation-unless, of course, Marty sacrifices his happiness to his father´s political ambition and ends the relationship before it gets started. 1.

Taking hold of her hand, Annika led Charlee into a stone-sheltered recess. The violet-tinted hue of dawn filtered into the cozy niche. Annika´s hands slid into Charlee´s coppery curls and drew her lips close. For a long moment, they hovered there as their gazes danced together. Then Annika pressed her mouth softly against Charlee´s, drinking in its sweetness, slowly at first, then more urgently. Annika supported her as they slowly slid to their knees, their lips never parting. They knelt there in the sand, hands hungrily exploring each other´s body. Charlee tentatively ran both hands along Annika´s spine, thrilling in the feel of the tremble she created with her touch. Hungrily, Annika pulled down the zipper of Charlee´s jacket, surprised to find the other woman wore nothing underneath it. Sucking in a deep breath, she let her eyes drink in the sight of Charlee´s bare melon-sized breasts. Soon Annika was using both hands to worship Charlee´s breasts, lifting and molding the big boobs, pressing them together. Charlee threw her head back arching her spine as Annika replaced one of her hands with her lips and.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hilarie Mukavitz.

Kestrel and Rory are the very best partnership in Wester Fleet´s elite Mountain Rescue Team. They´ve trusted one another with their lives for five years. They´re closer than brothers - but Rory´s feelings for his handsome, daredevil partner are far from fraternal. He knows better than to tell Kes the truth. Climbing partnerships are a delicate balance of love and practicality, and the Fleet MRT has a strict nonfraternization code. Rory could lose everything by making a confession. And Kes is an enigma - sometimes distant, sometimes seeming to crave the very devotion Rory longs to give him. Kes is all set to become the MRT´s next leader. He´s a shoo-in for the job - except for his impatience with amateur climbers and his inability to hold his tongue. When he and Rory are given the job of guiding two important visitors across the Fleet range, it´s a test of his tact, to say the least. But nothing about this mission is as it seems, and soon Kes is facing the most terrifying challenge of his life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Arden.

Victor Decimus is a 2,000 year old vampire, having last seen the sun when he was a Roman soldier in biblical times. There are few rules that govern a vampire´s existence, but those rules are absolute: 1) Vampires are not allowed to associate with other vampires and 2) Once a vampire convinces a human to take his place as a vampire, he must leave the earthly realm for the Dark Kingdom. Victor, unfortunately, has broken both those rules - he´s sired his human lover Paul as a vampire and stayed with him on Earth. The two enjoy an intense life as lovers, living in Georgetown and mingling at their private club for devotees, a converted church now known as Dies Irae. But their transgression is not taken lightly and agents for the Dark Realm are now on the prowl, looking to enforce their will and, if necessary, threaten everything that Victor and Paul hold dear, even each other, to punish their transgression. 1.

Victor Decimus has been a vampire for over 2,000 years. Once a Roman Legionnaire, for millennia Victor has remained a step or two ahead of rivals, would-be executioners, and the mysterious Dark Kingdom, which sets the rules for vampires´ existence. Having left New York and his lover Paul Lewis - the vampire he made then abandoned to escape the vengeance of the Dark Kingdom - Victor sets himself up again, with his thrall, in New Orleans. But in New Orleans, his thrall becomes the point of a new, larger conflict. On the one hand, a local priest seeks to break Victor´s hold over the thrall; on the other, the Dark Kingdom fears that Victor is going to become a Vampire Maker - one who continually creates new vampires, while refusing to take his place on the next plain of existence and thus creating an imbalance in the powers of the universe. And between both walks Victor, determined to have his own way, exerts control and remains defiant to the end. 1. Language: English. Narrator: A. C. Fellner.
