International Book Awards Finalist for L.G.B.T.Q. FICTION
Diego Castillo struggles daily under the weight of his secret. He’s forced to hide his desire for other men from his brothers. Lately, the only time he can really be himself is when he’s with his landscaping client, Winston—a man as beautiful as he is intimidating. They come from two different worlds, but in Winston he senses a vulnerable kindred spirit, and even though getting involved could uncover Diego’s secret, putting his entire family at risk, he’s powerless to stay away.
Winston Makena is suffering, too. All his millions can’t buy a minute’s peace from the crushing grief he’s felt since his husband’s death. The only relief he finds these days is when he’s with Diego. Despite their differences, Winston finds himself inexorably drawn to Diego’s honesty, kindness, and gentle soul. But he can never truly love again…can he?
It’s not long before Diego and Winston’s clandestine attraction grows into something much more complicated, and as cultures clash, misunderstandings mount, and secrets loom, they’re left to wonder if the cost of following their hearts is more than they can ever pay…
