Second Chances for Romance Come At a Price…
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, even purchased a vacation home in Provincetown together. 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? How do you start over in your late 40s, when everything you thought you had is stripped away?
September is a May-December romance about a man in this very situation — David James — who doesn’t know how to begin again. A sports injury lands him with physical therapist Brandon Smith. Brandon is a Texas transplant to Washington DC. He is young, vibrant, energetic, sexy … and attracted to David. But he’s going to have his work cut out for him to get David to take a chance again. Along the way, there is good food, a trip to Provincetown, but also unexpected heartache.
Take a chance. See what happens to them in September.
“This is the first story I have read by author Robert Winter and I cannot wait to read more.. his writing and storytelling ability are both beautifully brilliant, with characters that are full of emotion, and their plight and struggles real.” Jaime at Alpha Book Club
“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

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 is 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.
