Today author is Zahra Owens: Zahra Owens is a multi-lingual globetrotter who loves big cities, but also has a weak spot for the wide-open spaces that are so rare where she lives. She likes her men every which way they come, and never tries to change them. Men who are tough on the outside but have a huge soft center get extra credit, though, as do the strong, silent types who think they hide their damage well…but don’t. She makes it her personal goal to find them their happy-ever-after, even if the road toward this leads via hospital beds, villas with gorgeous vistas or ranges full of horses. Zahra is a proud to be the current Secretary of the Rainbow Romance Writers, a special interest chapter of the Romance Writers of America, and won’t quit until m/m romances are treated like every other romance story. RWA allowed her into their Professional Author’s Network, but she hasn’t quit her day job yet, since it allows her to work in a man’s world. And what girl can resist that? If Zahra had her wish, a day would have at least 36 hours, because how else would she find the time to finish all the novels still inside her head?

When a volcano erupts in Iceland and leaves globetrotting headhunter Jez Robinson stranded in Barcelona, he isn't sure what to do. He has a hard time sitting still, so deciding to make the best of his situation, he pays a visit to his old friend Nick Stone, a retired porn star he shares a history with. Only the visit doesn't go anything like Jez expected.
First Nick introduces Jamie, his much younger lover, a man so painfully shy he can't even bring himself to talk to strangers. The love he and Nick share is plain to Jez, but also puzzling, because Nick was never the monogamous type. Then Nick tells Jez he's dying and wants Jez to look after Jamie.
In his whole life, Jez has never committed to so much as a house plant, so at first he refuses. But Nick and Jamie are insistent, and soon Jamie worms his way into Jez's graces and his bed, determined to do the convincing Jez's heart needs.
