Blurb: Simon McLeod was a promising young naval captain before his ship was attacked and CIA agents forced him to fake his death and join their ranks. Since that horrible night, Simon has focused on finding the men responsible for ending his career. He’s close now, but he needs help from the man he loves. The problem is Edgar is straight, has no idea how Simon feels, and threatened to strangle him the last time they were together.
After years of using his medical expertise to patch Simon up after ill-advised missions, Edgar told Simon not to come running to him anymore. Watching Simon self-destruct was too painful. But when Simon shows up on Edgar’s doorstep covered in blood, Edgar can’t turn him away. He also can’t fight the feelings he has for Simon, feelings that go way beyond friendship.
Neither man thought he’d ever truly be happy again, but if they can survive a final dangerous mission, they might be able to prove themselves wrong.
Excerpt: “I’m in bed like a good little boy,” Simon called.
Edgar shook his head. When Simon started being a good little boy, he’d know the end of the world was nigh.
He wasn’t prepared for the sight that assaulted him when he stepped into his bedroom. Simon was sitting up in his bed with a stack of pillows behind him, wearing an ancient cardigan of Edgar’s over one of his T-shirts and a pair of reading glasses he must have found in the nightstand.
“What are you doing?” he asked Si.
“Working. What does it look like?”
“You’re wearing my glasses. And my sweater.”
“I was cold and it’s not like I’ve got clothes of my own here.”
“And the glasses?” Edgar asked.
Simon huffed. “So my eyes aren’t perfect anymore. I get my job done.”
Edgar pressed his lips together to keep from laughing. “I’m sure you do,” he said when he could trust himself to keep a straight face.
“You’re mocking me.”
“No, not at all.” But the laugh came through then. “You’re the deadliest man I know, and here you are looking like a teenage dork in oversized clothes.”
Simon shrugged. “I can’t kill people all the time.”
