Book Blurb

Lucas Arrowood is walking to school on his first day of kindergarten when he meets Dalton Churchill—a boy who stops and helps him tie his shoe. He knows from that moment he is going to marry that boy one day. “Boys can’t marry other boys,” his mother explains, but that doesn’t stop Lucas. He knows what he wants.

He and Dalton become best friends. And then, no matter how much he resists, Dalton falls in love with Lucas. Dalton’s very conservative family can’t accept that their boy loves another boy, but finally Dalton stands up for love and for Lucas. Still, he declares he won’t marry Lucas until it is legal everywhere. He hates the “commitment ceremonies” gay men have. They aren’t the real thing. Why bother?

So Lucas waits for his day. The day same-sex marriage finally becomes legal and he can be joined forever with the love of his life. 

 

 

First edition published in the anthology 'A More Perfect Union' by Dreamspinner Press, June 2016.


Book Review

Some couples are just meant to be, and Lucas and Dalton are an excellent example of “destined lovers”. Lucas realizes this much earlier than Dalton, namely when they first meet on Lucas’s first day in kindergarten. Nobody takes him seriously, his mother even tries to make him understand that “boys can’t marry boys”, but Lucas knows better. Watching him grow up and go through the agony of Dalton denying there is anything more than friendship between them was painful. Dalton kisses girls, has a girlfriend, and Lucas is ready to give up and goes to senior prom with another boy – and then a miracle happens and Lucas is back on track with his life plans.

If you believe that sometimes Fate knows what she’s doing, you will enjoy reading this story. I know I did!
