There's a whole story to be had in just a handful of conversation heart candies, and that's only the taking-off point for this collection.
In "All You Have to Do is Ask" by Kathryn Scannell, Greg shares a romantic Valentine's Day dinner with his Dom, but will the mood be spoiled when Paolo insists Greg explain some old scars? In "Press Badge" by Ellen Bishop, the entire office is getting into the spirit of Valentine's Day except Sam, but his coworker has other plans for him, whether he likes it or not. In "Hearts and Cake" by M. Durango, a simple dinner invitation leads to a misunderstanding between Bailey and Curt. In "Breaking Cupid's Curse" by Cindy Sutherland, Charlie Prentiss is sure that he's about to lose everything, but sometimes things aren't what they seem!
Two recently reunited lovers discuss how they view themselves and each other in Jay Christopher's "Perception." Andy and Nat negotiate love and sex, vanilla and kink in “Same Sex” by Jameson Dash. Bondage and sushi are reunited at last in "Night Out" by T. Strange. In "Forgiving Valentine" by Michael Barnette, Val leaves Liam, but then he realizes he's made the worst mistake of his life. In "A Rose by Any Other Name" by Kate Pennington, long weeks of travel and a disagreement over romance are taking their toll on Peter's relationship -- or are they?

After a millennia of hiding in the shadows, the creatures of myth known collectively as "The Others," have stepped forward into the light of day and demanded the right to live in peace, sharing the planet humans had long claimed as their own. Threatened, humans plan the genocide of creatures long thought myth, and the love of two men may be the only thing strong enough to save them all.
