|Ice Eagle, Fire Hawk: Hard-working finance employee Takashi Gojo didn’t earn the nickname “Fire Hawk” for nothing — he’s strong, tough, and fiercely passionate about his work, but that doesn’t stop things from heating up even more. Life gets complicated for Gojo after a steamy one night stand, or rather, the next morning when he finds out that his mysteriously alluring partner was actually his new boss, Shuichi Miyagi. Stumped and off his game, the questions and paperwork start piling up for Gojo. Will he be able to figure out what happened to his previous boss? Will he be able to get past Miyagi’s icy gaze and warm the man’s cold heart with his own fiery desire? Or has the famous Fire Hawk finally been shot down?|
|Happy-Go-Lucky Days, vol. 1: A young woman going through a divorce finds a kindred soul in a bar one night and wakes up the next morning in his bed. On the opposite side of town, a boring high school teacher is met with a startling confession and an equally unexpected encounter with his family. A lonely girl who lives with a ghostly house guest meets the (living and breathing) man she could be destined to marry, while twin boys who don’t quite see eye to eye encounter love and lust in the most unexpected of situations. Take a moment to sit back and watch life through the eyes of these ordinary people, a series of happy-go-lucky days colored by intersecting lines of sex, love, and longing.|
|The Pain in My Heart: When Kousei Matsumoto finds a a man apparently suffering from heatstroke alone out on the street, he takes him despite his better judgement. The young man is a mystery with a scar he won’t explain, and the only clue to his past is the whispered name “Mori.” Despite this, Kousei finds his heart becoming entangled, and the pair forge a fragile relationship. When the past literally comes knocking at his door and the truth of the young man’s true identity comes out, Kousei comes to a decision that literally tears the pair apart. But is it the right choice, and can the lonely, waif-like stray face his past and forge a future that includes Kousei?|
