Boston native Dave Madden has just been fired from a dead-end bartending job in San Francisco. His long-suffering girlfriend helps him get a job at a nearby art museum as a guard. But what Dave finds there will challenge his whole sense of identity. For despite a fling with a college roommate that ended too soon for his liking, he considers himself straight.
When Dave encounters woozy young Aaron Andersen at a work event–openly gay, with a house of his own in SF’s hip Bernal Heights neighborhood–he sees the 24-year-old techie as a harmless nerd and offers to drive him home. But Aaron soon has a seductive hold on Dave, and as the two men’s lives become more intertwined, Dave finds himself falling into an unexpected and passionate relationship, one that will require all his loyalty and commitment, and his faith in love.
Both men are damaged characters, and Dave really wants to be a good influence on Aaron. But as an old flame suddenly re-emerges from Dave’s past, and new revelations about Aaron’s addictive tendencies raise doubts in Dave’s mind, can their life together on Elsie Street really work out?

A Middlemark Mystery
Dr. Llewellyn Lewis leads a double life, as both an awkward but distinguished history professor and the more flamboyant Ramon Rondell, infamous writer of sensational historical theories. It’s Ramon who first sets eyes on a gorgeous young man dancing in a club, but Llewellyn who meets teaching assistant Blaise Arthur formally at an event held for wealthy socialite Anne de Vere, descendant of Edward de Vere, seventeenth Earl of Oxford—who some believe was the real Shakespeare. Anne wants Llewellyn to prove that claim, even though many have tried and failed. And she’s willing to offer a hefty donation to the university if he succeeds.
It also means a chance for Llewellyn to get to know Blaise much better.
Not everyone thinks Llewellyn should take the case—or the money. Between feuding siblings, rival patrons, jealous colleagues, and greedy administrators, almost anyone could be trying to thwart his work… and one of them is willing to kill to do it.
When Anne de Vere turns up dead, the police believe Blaise is the murderer. Only the shy, stuttering professor who has won his heart can prove otherwise….
