Blurb: Born the son of a preacher man, Elijah Deacon always conformed to his father’s strict religious teachings. He worked hard, devoting his time and energy to the family owned construction firm, leaving little time to focus on the deplorable state of his private life. Small town America was no place to be when all a man craved was the touch of another man. Elijah hid his sexuality and tried in vain to convince himself he could be happy with a woman. Urged on by the dream of having the family he craved, Elijah couldn’t know a drunken one-night stand would see him pay the ultimate price.
Leaving the bright lights of Atlanta and placing his own life on hold, paralegal, Seth Jacobs, moved to Alabama hopeful that with a baby on the way, his twin sister Bethany would settle down. His older sister by five minutes, she gave him the confidence he needed while growing to come out and be proud of who he was. It was his turn to return the support. On arrival in Headland, Seth endeavored to make her see the dangers her behavior presented to her and her unborn child. But, to no avail.
When destiny deals a cruel blow, and the life of a newborn baby hangs by a thread, Seth and Elijah are flung together to deal with the tragic circumstances. The grief threatens to consume them, while joy and fear work to unite them. Jealousy, love, lies and bitter truths rise to the surface and threaten to tear them apart. Can the powers of love and life bring them together and heal the loneliness that death leaves behind? Or will circumstance prevail and fuel the embers of love that draw them together?
Review: Oh, honey this story reads likes a Deep South soap opera. You have twins, a preacher’s gay son, (not to mention that he’s a construction worker) a tryst with the undertakers son, illegitimate babies, manslaughter and mayhem! So if you like drama, and plenty of man love, you’ll enjoy this hot number. I love the southern accents the author writes into the language, and of course, there is nothing much sexier than two hot daddies, even if some of the circumstances are a bit too farfetched to believe. Its fun, its dramatic, and the sexy scenes are hot! There are those sweet moments where the MC’s make each other breakfast (even with the smoke alarm blaring), and take turns caring for a preemie in the NICU. But through all this drama with a capital D, can these three make it as a family? You’ll just have to read and see…
