College professor James Richards is in a rut and feeling his age. He moved to northern California to escape heartbreak and humiliation, but so far the only good thing to happen to him has been his Boston terrier, Marlowe.
Then James's toughest student sets him up with her best friend. Rafael Ochoa is worlds apart from James---chronologically, culturally, and philosophically---but he's also beautiful, kind, and a shot of adrenaline to James's not-quite-middle-aged heart. Together, the two of them forge a bridge between James's East Coast sensibilities and Rafael's West Coast casualness, but can their meeting of the hearts survive James's lack of faith in happy-ever-after?
Amy Lane has two kids who are mostly grown, two kids who aren’t, three cats, and two Chi-who-whats at large. She lives in a crumbling crapmansion with most of the children and a bemused spouse. She also has too damned much yarn, a penchant for action adventure movies, and a need to know that somewhere in all the pain is a story of Wuv, Twu Wuv, which she continues to believe in to this day! She writes fantasy, urban fantasy, and gay romance—and if you accidentally make eye contact, she’ll bore you to tears with why those three genres go together. She’ll also tell you that sacrifices, large and small, are worth the urge to write.
