Publisher's Summary

A village clergyman.

Curate James Fletcher is content shepherding his parishioners through the good and bad times of their lives. If he sometimes dreams of making a deeper connection with a man who truly knows everything about him, it is an impulse he ignores.

A devoted businessman.

Declan Shaw solves problems at his family's many business enterprises. Recently, he's considered ceasing his travels to pursue a few desires of his own. He'd love to explore his secret love of cooking and perhaps have a relationship with a man that lasts longer than a night.

The event that brings them together.

In town for his cousin's wedding, Declan meets James just as he's bested the annoying groom. Intrigued by the mild-mannered cleric's surprising spirit, Declan asks James to help him discover if his aging aunt is being mistreated by her spouse.

As their paths repeatedly cross, the men reach an intersection of attraction they can't ignore. Will they dare pursue forbidden passion and continue to journey together into the future, or will their differences tear them apart?

Unmet potential

This story has potential to be interesting because of the plot & characters aside from the romance. Unfortunately the romance itself was predictable and boring.

The narration is pretty good. It's rare that an American narrator can get so close to getting British accents right.

If this were my first book from these authors there wouldn't be a second.
