Nick Bedford, closeted coach of California Pacific College's men's rowing team, is struggling with professional ethics. He denies his attraction to Morgan Estrada, a rower on the crew, though the heated glances between them drive Nick wild. Then Morgan makes a move... and though Nick panics, Morgan gets what he wants: Nick. Safely assured that he's not preying on a younger man, Nick gives in to his feelings for Morgan. They take pleasure in sharing their daily routine, and the sex sets the sheets afire. Everything seems perfect until an anonymous complaint is filed against Nick right before the biggest race of the year. It's exactly what Nick has feared most-and it may be enough to capsize the fledgling relationship.

Around the World: Singapore (A walk in history)

Five time a year, on special events, they open the old Government House (with Villa and Secretary House near it), that is now the President House, and the gardens. They are basically an oasis in the middle of the city which you cannot see unless you are not a President yourself, guest of Singapore, or you are not here, like me, on August 19, when it's National Day ;-) The other buildings and park are Fort Canning, not far from the first one, it's not a public park but in origins it was the place where the English colony built all their more important structure, on an hill overlooking the bay.

Angel Bound (His Guardian Angels 1) by Jana Downs

Nice, funny romp, main purpose was to entertain without drama and I think it reaches the target.

When Madigan, the love child of Archangel Raphael, is reaching puberty (and that is at 28 years old human age), he becomes the target of a group of warrior angels who want to kill the “outcome” of what they see as a sin. Raphael asks to his fellow Archangels, Lucifer included, to assign 1 warrior angel each to the protection of his son and here arrive Cross, Yuri, Bren, Dex and Michel.

From being an almost asexual gay man to be bound forever to 5 hunky Angels is a short path; Yuri, the clever of the group, finds out that if they basically mate/marry with Madigan, he will be safe from the threat of the other Angels. It has to be all of them since daddy Raphael, to be extra safe, picked 5 Guardian Angels.

The story basically evolves all in a place, Madigan’s house, and in the span of few days. Madigan, aside from being in “heat” due to his angelic puberty (he is emitting pheromones like crazy) he is at the same time overwhelmed by hot men who cannot be far from him if not for few meters. There is not change he could resist, and of course he will not.

As you can imagine, this is not a serious story; it’s, as I said, a funny romp, the crazy, but sexy, fantasy of an horny man comes alive. Embark in the journey and enjoy the craziness and horniness.
