Stuart Leandro knows he´s washed up, both on the big screen and in his marriage. Then, when things take an even bigger turn for the worse one night, he winds up blind drunk and lost in a foreign city. Thankfully, someone´s there to rescue him before his face ends up plastered all over the tabloids. Wary of the motives of the reclusive stranger who brings the fading star into the quiet shelter of a hip but isolated loft, Stuart nonetheless can´t deny his curiosity...or his attraction. Tim is unlike anyone the actor has ever met, but underneath the mystery and quiet attempts at invisibility, Stuart discovers someone whose life has been intertwined with his own for years. Neither could have predicted that Tim´s act of kindness would lead to one of the most intense encounters of their lives - but, are they willing to weather the media storm their extraordinary relationship will cause? 1.

All James wanted was a little solitude at his favorite resort: bright sunshine overhead, soft, white sand underfoot, and a hammock to read in while the warm breeze rustles through the coconut palms and almond trees. However, when an old acquaintance shows up, and James is obliged to share ´´his´´ beach, a profound exchange over a bottle of rum leads to a lust-fueled encounter in the dark. Reeling from the intensity of the drunken tryst, James decides to cut his vacation short rather than face what he´s kept hidden under mountains of denial. However, his escape is thwarted when Rudie, handsome and plainspoken, calls him out on his behavior and makes him see that life needn´t be spent running away from his desires. Set at a rundown old resort on a small Caribbean island, The Last Nights of the Frangipani Hotel is a story about letting go of fear and learning that passion and love can be found in the most unexpected of places. 1.
