"This is not the night you die." After years of working for a loan shark, Robert is done with blood and violence. All he has to show for it is a bag of money and a lifetime of regrets. There's no other way out of his line of work than in a body bag. So Robert decides to die. But on the night he chooses to seal his own fate, destiny offers him a chance at redemption. When Robert saves a handsome young escort from a terrible death, he has no idea he is setting in motion much more than one last attempt at proving that inside the hardened shell, he is a decent human being. Charming, quick-witted, and full of smiles, Nathan is all Robert could dream of. He's also ready to fall into the arms of his gruff protector. Robert, on the other hand, has never been with a man and will first need to fight his own demons if he is to accept that his whole being wants to make Nathan his. With his former boss hunting them both, time is ticking, and Robert might just not get the chance to decide before it's too late. More importantly though, Robert will stop at nothing to protect the man who's made him feel alive again, the man who is the only thing between him and the abyss. * "I never had to think much about death before, but I did yesterday. I thought I would die. In a hole. Covered with dirt. Suffocate underground. But then you saved me."

Alex is used to living alone, but every heart needs someone to love, especially one that's experienced a loss as great as his own. When a gorgeous man practically falls from the sky and trespasses on Alex's property, his wolf insists the stranger is their mate. But with the loss of his previous mate still at the front of his mind, Alex would sooner send the trespasser away than offer him a place to stay for the night. Of course, the thought of finding the stranger frozen in the snow isn't good, either. He's only asking to stay for one night. What harm could he possibly do? Stranded in the middle of nowhere, Tucker never thought his night would turn out the way it did. But in his search for shelter, he's surprised to find his mate so far from home. His joy, however, is short-lived. Sensing the alpha's distress, Tucker must push through the other man's grief if he ever hopes to comfort his mate. Convincing Alex to open the door is only the beginning. Will Tucker have what it takes to prove they belong together? Or are these two fated mates destined to be alone?

What Have You Done to My Heart?
Author: D. Contreras
Category: Social Science
Drawing on a wide range of material from art, theater, music, and literature, Contreras argues that historical memory is embedded in these forms of art and can perhaps take us "somewhere better than this place." The critical energies in the book come from Chicana/o and queer studies. Contreras views unrequited love as a utopian space of possibility and transformation. The discussion includes The Boys in the Band, Arturo Islas, Paris is Burning, Judy Garland, and Kiss of the Spider Woman.
