Chris and Aaron have hit a rough patch in their relationship, but it isn't anything they can't weather. Part of the disconnect stems from their different work schedules -- Chris works in an office during the day, while Aaron works swing shift at a plant, sometimes working days, sometimes afternoons, sometimes nights. The odd shift causes stress in their relationship, but Chris knows they can work through it together.
Then he discovers Aaron is secretly taking prescription drugs for depression.
Suddenly Chris feels as if he doesn't know Aaron any more. He's afraid to bring up the pills he found, but more afraid of losing his lover. To mistrust, to denial, to addiction. He tells himself he'll step in before it's too late.
But will he be able to figure out when to step in and say something? Or will Aaron's growing dependence on prescriptions drive them apart?

The third book in the Fireside Romance saga sees Simon Peters and Mark Smith return from their summer holiday in Menorca, Spain, where they exchanged wedding rings.
As a committed couple, Simon and Mark widen their social circle. However, a near tragedy reminds them that togetherness needs to be celebrated because it can all too easily be snatched away.
Much to his surprise, the serious and conservative librarian Simon discovers he has a kinky side, one which he and Mark take every opportunity to explore, even in unlikely places such as inside their new garden shed.
Then Christmas arrives, which heralds their first anniversary, and along with it comes a new addition to their household.
Join Simon and Mark as they navigate through the highs and lows of life in late 1980's northern England.

Orphaned and destitute, sisters Yolanthe and Ninette Briard have somehow managed to survive hunger and cold and find comfort in each other’s company as well as Yolanthe’s music. The older Briard girl is gifted with an exquisite voice, which she uses to earn enough money for their daily subsistence and to entertain her fragile younger sister.
One harsh winter, Ninette falls dangerously ill, spurring Yolanthe to brave the cold and continue her singing at St. Barthélémy’s square, where she attracts the attention of a potential benefactress who promises a rosy future for her and her sister. Yolanthe quickly learns that the path to a happier future might not be as straightforward as she’d first believed.
A lesson about sacrifice and selflessness will come in the guise of a strange gentleman in black, and fifteen-year-old Yolanthe will have to depend on what little knowledge of the world she has to bargain for borrowed time.
