Justin Hawthorne worked hard to realize his silver-screen dreams, making his way from small-town Pennsylvania to Hollywood and success. But it hasn’t come without sacrifice. When Justin’s father kicked him out for being gay, George Miller’s family offered to take him in, but circumstances prevented it. Now Justin is back in town and has come face to face with George, the man he left without so much as a good-bye… and the man he’s never stopped loving.

Justin’s disappearance hit George hard, but he’s made a life for himself as a home nurse and finds fulfillment in helping others. When he sees Justin again, George realizes the hole in his heart never mended, and he isn’t the only one in need of healing. Justin needs time out of the public eye to find himself again, and George and his mother cannot turn him away. As they stay together in George’s home, old feelings are rekindled. Is a second chance possible when everything George cares about is in Pennsylvania and Justin must return to his career in California? First they’ll have to deal with the reason for Justin’s abrupt departure all those years ago.
Exclusive Excerpt 

“I’ll get you another drink,” Ethan said. He was the only person Justin trusted enough to get him anything that he didn’t see go into the glass. His life was one huge caution flag. “Thanks,” Justin said, and Ethan threaded off through the crowd. “Sweetheart,” Lila Montagne said as she hurried up to him, wrapping an arm around his waist. She smelled of alcohol, and Justin could tell she had already had too many. When she leaned into him, he had to help her stand. “We worked so well together.” She hiccupped and tilted his way. Thankfully she weighed next to nothing. “I hope we can do it again in the future.” “Me too, sweetheart.” She hiccupped once more and was hit with a fit of the giggles. “It’s too bad you’re gay or I’d be all over you.” She stood up straight, eyes glassy but her gaze relatively steady. “Wanna give the other side a try?” She made a grab for him, and Justin stepped back. He wasn’t about to get his balls grabbed by a drunken starlet. He wanted them in one piece, and Lila was known for going after what she wanted whole hog, as it were. “No, thanks, but you’re a good friend.” He kissed her cheek the same way he had the girl out front. Ethan returned and handed him a drink, and then Justin escorted Lila to a chair, where she collapsed in a heap. “This is what you wanted me to come for?” he asked Ethan. “No. It was for him,” Ethan said and pointed to Justin’s supporting actor in Runaway. He stood off to the side with a few people talking to him, but otherwise everyone was doing their thing. “Alexander,” Justin called as he approached him. Alexander smiled, and they hugged in a real manly way. Alexander was as straight as they came, and he’d been standoffish when they started the film, but by the end they were friends. “Thanks for doing this. It’s a great party.” “Thanks,” Alexander said. He turned toward a woman with a clipboard standing off to the side of the bar. “It was my publicist’s idea, but I’m glad you came. It was great working with you.” Working together, he and Alexander had found they had more in common than either of them expected. Alexander had come from a small town and seemed on his way up. “I took your advice. My agent had a fit, but he knows not to mess with me.” “And you can sleep at night,” Justin said. “Yeah,” Alexander agreed. Justin sipped from his martini glass and was pleased to taste only cold water. “What have you got next?” “There’s some talk about a lead in a couple features, but nothing else at the moment. You know how things are. It will take a little time and then hopefully things will bust open. You?” “The next big deal. I start shooting on a sort-of Beowulf adventure. Costumes, women in saucy clothes, the works. It’s a great story, and it should be fun. We’re talking about the project after that. I’ll work with you anytime, and I passed on the word to some directors I know. You’re professional, on time, and good at what you do. You’ll be getting some calls.”
