This is an excerpt from my upcoming gay romance release from MLR Press, OLD DOG, OLD TRICK!
Feeling romantic in retrospect, he might have called it Fate.
He had never been a man who believed that life’s path could turn on a pinpoint. He didn’t believe that some unseen force had any influence on where a person went, or with whom.
Lambert Porter Jr., Senior Partner, always considered the flow of time in terms of sweeping eras. That the great turning points of a person’s existence were those long stretches of experience and choice that slowly changed their idea of who they were and their place in the world. Epic sweeps that left no trace of the one left behind. Tides, not pirouettes. Not skips. Not tiny moments, decisions. Those, he believed, went up in smoke and were meant to be forgotten in the forward movement that built a successful man’s life.
Lam and Dale grew up together and fell in love on the California shore. Polar opposites, still they made a home together, and planned to spend the rest of their lives doing it. Then adulthood and separate dreams pulled them apart.
20 years later, their paths cross again. Can all the hurt of a lifetime of silence and pain be overcome to find that love again?
