Erotic Romance, LGBTQ
Evan Parker left the tiny town of Harmony, Maryland and didn't look back. He hadn't seen Isaac Wells in four years, not since Isaac told him that he didn't really love him, and probably never had. He'd decided that sex with men wasn't for him, that it all had been a mistake, a cruel joke, and that he was going to marry Janet Bourne and live a normal life.
Evan didn't dislike the little town on Maryland's Eastern Shore, but he never thought he'd move back, not until his father died, and his sister Eve's husband developed Lou Gehrig's disease. "I can't take care of both Michael and mother." Evan didn't miss her emphasis on the word AND.
Evan settled on the front porch drinking coffee, his first morning back. He felt the air being sucked out of his lungs, as an SUV rolled to a stop in the driveway. Isaac stepped onto the river pebble drive, dressed in green uniform pants and a khaki shirt. He slid his car keys into his black, ballistic-nylon gun belt, bounded up the steps and removed his sunglasses. His hazel-green eyes twinkled in the morning sunlight. Evan had dreamed of those eyes, almost every night for four years.
"Aren't you going to say hello to an old friend?"
"Hello, Isaac. What brings you here?"
"The question, Evan, is what brings you here, after four years in New York? Are you going to ask me to sit down, maybe offer me a cup of coffee?" Evan felt his face flush hot.
"I told you why I was here. Why are you here, Isaac?" Evan stared straight ahead at the lettering on Isaac's SUV door: NATURAL RESOURCES POLICE.
"I saw Eve at Southern States. She told me you were coming home."
"Okay, so why did you come to visit? What will your wife say?"
"I'm not married, Evan. I'm divorced." Evan tried to keep the cup from shaking as he raised it to his lips, to keep from having to talk.
They say time heals all. Evan Parker can tell you that it doesn't. Four years older, wiser, and wealthier, he's still powerless to resist Isaac Wells. A 17,000 word, adult themed, gay romance
