Dmitri Hernandez is starting his life over. After his release from captivity and four years in college, he's just accepted a position as vintner at the Lazy E Vineyard and Dude Ranch. He's excited about the job, but he's even more excited by a tall, handsome cowboy that turns him on in every way. Maverick Walker is a true Marlboro man in every sense of the word and Dmitri falls hard for him. The two begin a relationship which only burns hotter until a third man steps into the mix and complicates everything. Carlo Degli Esposti, a famous Italian wine critic and gay playboy, makes his moves on Dmitri right away. Dmitri is suddenly torn between a handsome blond billionaire and a dominating cowboy with a vulnerable side. Carlo Degli Esposti is turned on by Dmitri's sexy good looks and smokin' hot body but the more he gets to know Dmitri, the more he realizes the vintner has devastating secrets buried deep within. As Carlo and Dmitri begin to see more of each other, Maverick backs off. He wants his own lover, not a relationship where he'd have to share Dmitri with the gorgeous Italian. As Dmitri's nightmarish secrets are eventually uncovered, Carlo realizes he's deeply in love with the handsome vintner and vows to make him the center of his life. Will Dmitri be able to forget the big, beautiful Maverick? Is Carlo enough to fill the hole left in his heart so many years before? Will taking a job in the Texas wine country be the worst decision Dmitri has ever made or will it be a very good year indeed?

At first, nothing lived on Earth. It was a noisy, hot, scary place. Choking gas exploded from volcanoes and oceans of lava bubbled around the globe... Then in the deep, dark ocean, something amazing happened. This is an exciting and dramatic story about how life began and developed on Planet Earth, written especially for younger children. The authors explain how the first living cell was created, and how the cells multiply and create jellyfish and worms, and then fish with bendy necks, which drag themselves out of the water into swampy forests. They tell the story of the biggest creatures that have ever walked on land - the dinosaurs. Long after that, hairy creatures who have babies, not eggs, take over, stand on two legs and spread around the world, some of them living through cataclysmic events such as ice ages and volcanic eruptions. Everyone living today is related to these survivors. With delightful illustrations including lots of detail and humour, all carefully researched and checked, this book shows the development of life on Earth in a truly accessible and simple way.
