“The wedding!” I shouted, not thinking through what I was doing, and rounded on someone who’d followed me through double doors. “The wedding?” I repeated as the same woman who’d tapped me on the shoulder, sans ski cap, gestured to the middle door and the discreet sign to the side that said Essex Hall in small letters. I schooled my features into what I assumed was a pleasant smile of thanks, but the woman took a hurried step back, and I guessed my smile needed some practice. I didn't have time to apologize, and steeling myself for what I needed to do, I thrust open the doors and stepped into a vast high-ceilinged room. All I could see was white from flowers and ribbons, and I shouted as loud as I could.
“Stop the wedding!”
The room was empty. Beautifully decorated with pale roses and fairy lights draped everywhere, there was no one there. I slumped to the nearest chair, every breath I’d been holding sweeping out of me, and emotion knotting in my chest.
I couldn’t rescue him.
I couldn’t tell him I loved him.
I was too late.
A desperate plea for help and an admission of love sends Patrick racing to stop his best friend from marrying the wrong man.
Patrick never stopped loving Declan, even if he shoved him away at graduation when they kissed. His alpha-type brothers and father, with all their firefighter history, would never accept him being bi, or understand his need to step outside of the family firm and be a cop. So, he hides how he feels, and ends up losing the only man he’s ever really loved. The only reconciliation they tried was the night he found out Declan was engaged, and it broke him that by staying silent he had lost his once chance at happiness. That is, until he receives a desperate phone call from Declan asking to be rescued. Through travel chaos and storms, Patrick finally reaches the Colorado mountains, but with an empty wedding room and no sign of Declan or his fiancé, he knows he’s too late.
All too familiar with rejection, jilted by his fiancé on his wedding day, and lost, Declan has no idea what comes next. He never imagined he’d be entirely alone after the wedding party leave, or an avalanche would trap him in the hotel over Christmas. And worse? Patrick has shown up, is staying in the hotel with him and won’t leave him alone. Sharing a room with his former best friend is the last thing Declan wants, but maybe this is a sign that he needs to confront the past and move on with his life. But when secrets and truths are revealed, Declan has to make the biggest decision of his life. Is it possible for him to fall out of love with the one man who really holds his heart?
