Of Love and Corn Dogs
You might think Darwin Kincade has it all. A thriving business empire and more money that he can ever spend. You’d be wrong. When Darwin’s lover died, there was nothing that could make him smile. Then one night at dinner, he meets Ricky Donnelly, his server. Darwin is given a lesson he’s not expecting, and shown a path in his life he’s never thought about. The problem? Ricky doesn’t know who Darwin is, and Darwin wants to keep it that way. But the truth can never stay hidden, and when it comes out, Darwin may lose any future they’re trying to build.
With more money than he could spend in ten lifetimes, Darwin Kincade still couldn’t keep death from stealing his lover. A little older and a whole lot wiser, flirting with his twice-a-week waiter is the perfect no-risk substitute for a real relationship. Until the night his routine is upended by the restaurant’s newest employee.
Ricky Donnelly loves people. While being a server isn’t his dream, he’s good at it. When a grumpy man is seated in his station, Ricky sees there’s more to him than he lets on, and when the man relaxes, he’s actually sweet.
As the two men bond over a discussion about corn dogs— something Darwin’s never heard of—he realizes how much he’s missed out on in his life. He vows to open himself to new experiences—including, perhaps, a chance at finding love again.
Not wanting anything to muddy their blooming relationship, Darwin hides part of himself from Ricky. He likes the look in Ricky’s eyes, unclouded by Darwin’s notoriety. Unfortunately, the truth can never stay hidden, and when it comes out, Darwin may lose any hope of holding onto the future they’ve begun to build.
