David James is smart, successful, handsome… and alone. After the death of his lover, Kyle, from cancer, he buried himself in his law practice and the gym. At forty-eight, he is haunted by his memories and walled off from the world. When David injures himself working out, he’s assigned to Brandon Smith for physical therapy. The vibrant young therapist is attracted to David and realizes he needs a hand to get back into dating. What begins as a practice coffee date escalates to friendship, passion, and maybe something more, as they navigate a new relationship in Washington, DC, and the gay mecca of Provincetown.
But David remains trapped behind the barrier of fear and guilt. Will he remain loyal to Kyle’s memory if he moves on? Can he and Brandon manage a twenty-two-year age gap? Brandon thinks he understands David’s concerns, and for him, the answer to those questions is yes. He wants to be with David, and he believes he can overcome David’s barriers. But Brandon fails to account for the world’s reaction to a handsome young man attached to an older, wealthy lover.
David’s memories, Brandon’s pride, and an unexpected tragedy might cost them something very special…

“September is the debut novel from this author, and I’m happy to say it was one of those ‘can’t put it down’ books. You know, one where the house could be collapsing around you while reading, yet you wouldn’t notice.” Dianne at It’s About the Book

Imagine that you’ve spent more than 15 years with the same man. You’ve built your lives, bought a nice house, travelled, made great friends. You’ve purchased a vacation home in Provincetown. You plan to spend the rest of your lives with each other.
Now imagine that your partner gets the diagnosis: Cancer. You fight the disease together, but sometimes that isn’t enough.
Imagine he dies at 42.
How do you rebuild your life then? How do you start over in your late 40s, when everything you thought you had is stripped away?
Meet David, a widower who doesn’t know how to begin again. Then a sports injury lands him with physical therapist Brandon, a Texas transplant to Washington DC. Brandon is young, vibrant, energetic, sexy…and attracted to David. A practice coffee date escalates to friendship, passion, and maybe something more, as they navigate a new relationship.
With Brandon so focused on getting David to take a chance again, he fails to account for the world’s reaction to a handsome young man attached to an older, wealthy lover. David’s memories, Brandon’s pride, and an unexpected tragedy might cost them something very special…
Take a chance. See what happens to them in September.
