Overview

What happens when the past you've been running from finally catches up with you?

For the past five years, Peter Adams has convinced himself that his one and only true love, Adrian Shrader, never really cared. Peter has dedicated his life to becoming a private investigator, more determined than ever to keep his memories, and his feelings, locked away. But when a near fatal shooting causes a brain injury, he's about to discover that his past is anything but behind him.

Adrian Shrader disappeared in the hopes that his best friend and lover wouldn't lose the only family he'd ever known. Aware that Peter's mother threatened to remove Peter from his sibling's lives, Adrian's spent the past few years wishing there was a way to right this wrong. When he hears that Peter is seriously injured and in the hospital, Adrian rushes to his side. Will they be able to rediscover love? Or will history repeat itself?

Reader Advisory: This book is the second in a series and the stories, while they can be read on their own, are best read in sequence.

Meet the Author

I’m a night owl who starts writing when everyone else in my time zone is asleep. I’ve loved reading all my life and spent most of my childhood with my nose buried in a book. Although I always wanted to be a writer, financial independence came first. Twenty-some years and a successful business career later I took some online writing classes and never looked back.Living and working in seven countries has taught me that there's more than one way to get things done. It has instilled tremendous respect for the many different cultures, beliefs, attitudes and preferences that exist on our planet. I like exploring those differences in my stories, most of which happen to be romances. My characters have a tendency to want to do their own thing, so I often have to rein them back in. The one thing we all agree on is the desire for a happy ending. I currently live in the United Kingdom, sharing my house with a vast collection of books. I like reading, traveling, spending time with my nieces and listening to classical music. I have a passion for science and learning new languages.

Riverside, Texas

Saturday April 26, 2003

“Adrian?” Peter Adams stared at his best friend whose eyes were luminous in the shadows of the backyard. “What are you doing out here?”

It was too chilly to be sitting on the swings, and anyway, the birthday party was inside the house. Rick was the third of their close group of friends to turn eighteen and he was celebrating in style, having invited everyone in their high school year. They’d had fun in the basement-turned-disco earlier, the whole group dancing as if there was no tomorrow. Peter had lost track of Adrian while he and Rick tried to cheer up David who was the fourth member of their group.

Adrian dropped his gaze and shrugged his shoulders, looking dejected.

“What’s going on buddy?” Peter sat on his haunches, resting his arms on his thighs as he tried to get Adrian to look at him again.

Adrian shook his head, his slightly too long brown hair covering his forehead and hiding his dark-copper eyes. Peter fisted his hands in an effort to stop himself from touching Adrian. They were best friends and that was all there was to it. If anyone found out how attracted he was to Adrian, including Adrian, bad things might happen. He didn’t want them to get separated like David and Elliot. Granted, those two had been caught kissing, not just touching, but knowing how traditional his mother and Adrian’s parents were, Peter wasn’t going to risk it.

“Something’s wrong, isn’t it?” Peter was determined to find out what was going on. He couldn’t stand seeing Adrian this depressed.

“Just the usual.” Adrian raked his hair before dropping his hand back onto his thigh and looking up. “Don’t worry about it. There’s nothing you can do about it, anyway.”

“The usual?” Peter took a deep breath. “Have they been harassing you about your height again?”

“Just teasing. You know what they’re like. I’m not a jock and never will be. Being called a baby, though, only because I’m small and just turned eighteen, got to me.” Adrian shrugged and dropped his head. “I just needed a moment alone. Didn’t want to drag you out here.”

“You didn’t drag me out here. I missed you and wanted to check what was going on with you.” Shit, that was way too close to the truth. Why could Peter never switch on his brain before opening his mouth? He’d have to learn someday soon or he’d never become a good PI.

“You missed me?” Adrian looked back up, something like hope in his eyes.

“Yeah, well...” How was he going to get out of this one?

“Oh, you mean...” Adrian looked hurt and Peter couldn’t stand it.

“I mean I missed you.” Peter was going to get into all kinds of trouble for this, but he couldn’t let Adrian believe he was all alone. Adrian was having enough trouble because his father didn’t like him or his hobby very much. Baking the most wonderful creations with his mother wasn’t 'manly' enough for his father. And most of their classmates made fun of Adrian because he was small and wiry, making him look much younger than he actually was.

“You’re serious, aren’t you?” Adrian sat up straight, making the swing move and his knee brush against Peter’s thigh.

“Well, yes, I mean we’re best friends, aren’t we?” There, that was safe enough. Peter could only hope that Adrian would drop it now.

“Yes, of course we are. But...” Adrian swallowed.

“What?” Peter’s heart started beating faster, partly hoping that Adrian was going to return his feelings and partly fearing that he would. “What are you trying to say?”

“I-I don’t know.” Adrian looked flustered and confused.
