Here's the blurb: In the aftermath of September 11, a grief-stricken Joshua finds comfort and solace in the arms of a mysterious man who also lost someone that fateful day. Jude Balder, the son of a U.S. Senator and a well-known artist in his own right, is everything Joshua has ever wanted, except for the whole “religion thing.” Joshua is a Christian, and Jude... well, Jude is something else entirely, something abstract and scary and indefinable, something that is definitely not Christian. When Joshua receives an invitation to a Solstice/Christmas party thrown by Jude and his Senator mother a couple of years later, he's faced with a quandary: Should he worry about the dangerous allure of the unknown, or will he dare take the chance to bask in Jude’s undeniable perfection?
Click on the photo to buy the story. With one week to go until the Winter Solstice, you must be looking for something to occupy those cold, dark evenings. This story is the answer. There's nothing better this time of year than cuddling up with a cup of cocoa and a holiday romance. Happy Holidays.
Are you in love with the cover art? I think it might be the best Holiday Anthology Art I've ever seen. Artist Paul Richmond is fantastic. Check out Paul Richmond's Site to see more of his work.
