Michael Gray returned from World War One injured, but at least he returned. Others were not so fortunate, including his first and greatest love, Thomas Carter-Clemence, with whom Michael had parted bitterly before the conflict began. Broch, the Carter-Clemence home in Porthkennack, was an integral part of pre-war holidays for the Grays, the two families drawn together in the wake of their sons' friendship. Returning to the once-beloved Cornish coast for a break with his sister and her family, Michael has to find the courage to face old memories . . . and dare new relationships. When Thomas's brother Harry makes an unexpected appearance, Michael is surprised to find himself deeply attracted to Harry for his own sake. But as their relationship heats up, it unearths startling revelations and bitter truths. Michael must decide whether Harry is the answer to his prayers or the last straw to break an old soldier's back.

When grief-stricken scientist Sir Edward Fitzwilliam provokes public scorn by defending a sham spiritualist, he's forced to retreat to Porthkennack to lick his wounds. Ward's reputation is in tatters, but he's determined to continue the work he began after the death of his beloved brother. In Porthkennack, Ward meets Nicholas Hearn, land steward to the Roscarrock family. Ward becomes convinced that Nick, whose Romany mother was reportedly clairvoyant, is the perfect man to assist with his work. But Nick--who has reason to distrust the whims of wealthy men--is loath to agree. Until Fate steps in to lend a hand. Despite Nick's misgivings, he discovers that Ward is not the high-handed aristocrat he first thought. And when passion ignites between them, Nick learns there's much more to love than the rushed, clandestine encounters he's used to. Nevertheless, Nick's sure that wealthy, educated Ward will never see him as an equal. A storm is gathering, but with Nick's self-doubts and Ward's growing obsession, the fragile bond between the two men may not be strong enough to withstand it.

South London mechanic Devan Thompson has gone to Porthkennack to track down someone he's been waiting all his life to know. But Dev's distracted from his quest by Kyle, a broodingly handsome local of only a few months, who's already got a reputation as an alcoholic because of his strange behaviour--including a habit of collapsing in the street. Kyle Anthony fled to Porthkennack to escape from the ruins of his life. Still raging against his diagnosis of narcolepsy--a condition that's cost him his job as a barrister, his lover, and all chance of normality--the last thing he wants is another relationship that's doomed to fail. But Dev's easygoing acceptance and adaptability, not to mention his good looks, have Kyle breaking all his self-imposed rules. When disaster strikes Dev's adored little sister, Kyle steps up to the plate, and Dev sees a side of his lover he wasn't prepared for: competent, professional--and way out of Dev's league. With one man determined that they don't have a future and the other fearing it, life after Porthkennack is starting to look bleak for both of them.

Nathan Bridges hadn't intended to settle down in his hometown of Porthkennack--he just ended up staying after saving the family business from ruin. The truth is, Nathan can't stop himself from stepping in when problems arise. He's a fixer, the man everyone turns to. But even fixers can't solve everything. When Nathan's sister needs an organ transplant, it's his stepbrother, Mack, who the family turns to as Rosie's only potential living donor. Nathan's curiosity about the stepbrother he's never met turns to shock when he realises that Mack is his latest--and hottest ever--one-night stand. Nathan and Mack agree to forget their single night together, but that's easier said than done. When Mack moves in to Nathan's place to recuperate after surgery, it's not just the sexual tension between them that keeps growing. Against all the odds, and despite Mack's wariness of intimacy, the two men grow close enough that Nathan begins to wonder what it would take to mend the rift that's kept Mack and his father estranged for over a decade . . . and whether Mack might consider staying with Nathan in Porthkennack for good.

Things are looking up for Adam Matthews and Robin Bright--their relationship is blossoming, and they've both been promoted. But Robin's a policeman, and that means murder is never far from the scene. When a body turns up in a shallow grave at a Roman villa dig site--a body that repeatedly defies identification--Robin finds himself caught up in a world of petty rivalries and deadly threats. The case seems to want to drag Adam in, as well, and their home life takes a turn for the worse when an ex-colleague gets thrown out of his house and ends up outstaying his welcome at theirs. While Robin has to prove his case against a manipulative and fiendishly clever killer, Adam is trying to find out which police officer is leaking information to the media. And both of them have to work out how to get their home to themselves again, which might need a higher intelligence than either a chief inspector or a deputy headteacher.
