While searching for their missing sibling, Zaiden and his sister Kaandhal, come across the last pureblooded psy-clairvoyant of their kind. Unfortunately for them, the psy-clairvoyant Darian has no idea who he truly is and isn’t interested in learning, much less helping Zaiden and Kaandhal locate their missing brother, Zxex. A bounty hunter by trade, who’s been all but banished from his family due to his visions, Darian is a bit cynical about his ability to be of any assistance to them. Nevertheless, Zaiden brings him back to their home Rhumba, where Darian discovers that very little is what it seems. With plots unfolding all around them and discoveries about his own heritage leaving Darian reeling, he is left with the choice of whether to embrace who and what he is, or spend every moment with them as a prisoner on the fringes of their society. Add in a pesky little bond that only seems to grow the more time he and Zaiden spend together, and several factions looking to gain possession of him and Darian is left wondering if his visions just might be the least of his troubles.

Marc meets Howard during his final year at graduate school. Howard is Marc’s dream of what a real man should look like: tall, dark and muscular. When Marc discovers that Howard shares his minority affectional orientation, the two men become lovers.

Upon graduation, they plan to escape prairie winters by moving from Winnipeg to Vancouver, British Columbia. They dream of their life on the coast: a house with an ocean view, skiing Grouse Mountain, and sailing the Salish Sea.

Marc successfully interviews for a teaching position on the coast. If Howard can land an engineering job, their dream will be realized.

Marc’s plans for a life with Howard are destroyed when Howard accepts an engineering position in Winnipeg. He cannot overcome the guilt instilled by his conservative religious upbringing, which tells him that men who love men will burn forever in hellfire.

Twenty-five years later, disillusioned with his lonely life on the coast, Marc returns to the prairies. He reconnects with his former lover, but learns that Howard, after recently undergoing reparative therapy, is about to marry a woman.


Will Marc win Howard back before he makes the biggest mistake of his life?
