Artist James Bryant has forearm crutches in every color from rainbow for fun to sleek black for business. He even has a pair with more paint splatters than metal. After his family’s rejection and abuse from a man he thought loved him, James only just gets through the day by painting. He lives in constant fear that he’s not worthy of anything, let alone love.
As CEO of his company, Carrington Enterprises, Seth Burns is a take-charge kind of guy, and he is instantly smitten by the artist helping with his newest project. When he witnesses James suffer a panic attack, a protective instinct he never knew he had kicks in. He truly believes nothing is unobtainable—including James—if he’s willing to put in the time and effort.
James is shy and confused by Seth’s interest in him as a person. With Seth’s support, can he work through his fears to finally find the true love he deserves, or will someone finally land the crushing blow he won’t survive?

James has come to accept that thanks to his genetic disorder he’s too much trouble to be bothered with and that relationships, at least for him, always mean pain, so when he meets Seth, he’s reluctant to believe the man could really want him as he is.

Seth is the head of Carrington Enterprises and truly believes that nothing is unobtainable if you are willing to put in the time and effort to acquire your goals. When he meets the shy artist James, his heart is stolen and his determination if put to the test.
Danni Christine Burns
Parents: Quinn (mother-deceased), Seth (father), James (stepfather)
Danni is Seth’s child with Quinn, his childhood best friend. Seth was never meant to be her live-in father, only her surrogate father and ‘uncle’. With the loss of Quinn, Danni gets not only her beloved uncle, but a new uncle as well.
Tempeste O’Riley grew up in the deep south and escaped her conservative, oppressive roots as soon as she could. Tempe is an out and proud omnisexual/bi-woman whose best friend growing up had the courage to do what she couldn’t – defy the hate and come out. He has been her hero ever since.
Though new to writing M/M, she has done many things in her life but writing has always drawn her back – no matter what else life has thrown her way. She counts her friends, family, and Muse as her greatest blessings in life.
