    Summary

    The coughing fit takes him by surprise and he feels himself being guided to sit up, a firm hand in the center of his back, resting there, “Breathe for me, just breathe through it,” Nile says and when Joe finally manages to crack his eyes open (and god how much it hurts even in the dim lights of the…ambulance?) he sees a young woman sitting across from him holding a small bottle of water with a straw in it. “Drink this when you’re ready,” she says, pressing it into his shaking hands.

    Joe's an artist living in a small town, struck with grief and not ready to quite move on. When a fire threatens his livelihood, he realizes that he has more people in his corner than he thought.

    With the help of Booker and a ragtag group of first responders, he learns the value of found family and how it correlates with happiness and recovery.

    Summary

    Nicky is a burned out doctor who needs a vacation. Lucky for him, his friend Nile asks him to pet/housesit while she is on her honeymoon. Surely it can’t be that hard to look after a dog and a cat? But when things go hilariously wrong, Nicky calls the number left by Nile for any emergencies and Dr. Yusuf al-Kaysani picks up the phone. But maybe this veterinarian can help more than just the pets? A modern romance with cuddly animals and love at first sight!

    Summary

    In 1099, Yusuf and Nicolò meet during the siege of Jerusalem, as they drive their swords through each other and awaken when they shouldn't. In 2020, Joe and Nicky snuggle happily on a beach in Genoa, ignored by the strangers surrounding them and the sun setting across the water. In between, they see the passing of eleven centuries. They live through wars, earthquakes, pandemics, art movements, the age of explorers, devastating loss, political revolution, new family members, and gay nightclubs. With them all along is a love that transcends time and space; that settles heavily into their souls and exists regardless of when or where they are. Years pass, one era fades into another, and no matter what happens they always, always choose each other. Perpetually.
