Overview

In this follow up to Jenna Jones' popular novel Chiaroscuro, Dune Bellamy and Micah Ferguson have become best friends. Between Micah's string of boyfriends and Dune's lovers, they have plenty to talk about, especially when a trip to Europe leaves Micah alone, while back home, Dune's first love turns up again.

After a brief fling in Paris, Micah returns home to an unhappy Dune, who's trying to fend off his ex's attentions. When Micah steps in, Dune starts to see his friend as something more, which creates a whole new set of problems. Dune's not sure he wants to ruin their friendship, but he and Micah agree to give it a try.

Micah has family problems to deal with, Dune has his ex stalking him, and the pressure soon comes between them, driving Dune back into the arms of the dangerous Gavin, who wants to control his every move. Can Micah deal with his sisters, and find a way to convince Dune that they deserve another chance? Something Beautiful is all about the family we chose, as well as the one we're born with, and if they're lucky, something beautiful will come of it for Micah and Dune.

Read an Excerpt

Micah Ferguson had counted three vineyards, two herds of sheep, a Roman aqueduct and five churches as the train sped from Calais to Paris when his boyfriend said, "We have to talk."

That was never a good way to start a conversation, particularly when Lucas was looking earnest and serious like he was now. Micah turned away from the French countryside to face the train compartment. None of their fellow passengers were paying attention to two scruffy, young American tourists. As far as private conversations went, this place was as good as any. "Okay. What's on your mind?"

Lucas said, "When we go back to England, let's get married."

"What?" Micah's voice rose above the noises of the train. The woman across the aisle glanced up from her novel at them. He smiled at her uncomfortably as Lucas leaned closer, their denim-covered knees touching.

"I want to marry you," Lucas said. "Let's get married, and if it's ever legal in the States we'll already have the rings and the certificate and everything. And if it never is, we'll know we're married." His blue eyes were wide and pleading. "Don't you want to marry me, Micah?"

Micah stammered, "I--I--I've never thought about it."

Lucas sat back in the seat. "Oh."

"I mean, we just graduated from college," Micah said hastily. "We haven't even been dating a year. Don't you think you're rushing things a little?"

"Yeah," Lucas said and looked out the window at the passing countryside. "I guess I am."

"I mean, jeez," Micah said, trying to keep his voice light, "this is only our first vacation together. It's a big leap from this to picking out wedding china."

"Yeah," Lucas said.

This was Micah's dreamvacation, something he'd planned to do since he was a freshman: that once he graduated from college he would see Europe. At the time, he'd planned to bring his boyfriend Jamie, and then his boyfriend Ryan, and then whoever he was dating at the time. Then for a while he'd thought he would just go alone, but was saved from that when he fell in love with Lucas. Lucas fit him so perfectly that when Micah had asked Lucas to come to Europe with him they agreed on every museum and club and landmark.

In the last month they'd seen London, Dublin, Edinburgh and Dover. Now they were on their way to Paris, a city Micah had been looking forward to their entire trip. He intended to do every tourist cliché they could: climbing the Eiffel Tower, exploring the catacombs, visiting the Louvre, and it wouldn't be any fun if Lucas was mad at him.

Micah played with the zipper of his computer satchel. "Let's see how we handle kissing on top of the Eiffel Tower first. I want to kiss you there, you know."

"Right."
