Summary

Choo Wilson wasn't in the mood for a party. He wasn't wearing sackcloth and ashes, but he had lost a friend when Old Dave Jefferson put down his paint scraper and sat down on the shady side of the house on the Tsooyan and allowed his tired old heart to stop beating. You don't have to tear your hair and beat your breast to miss a friend, and Choo missed Old Dave very much. 
Choo's boat, the Touchdown, was in the slip next to the older Tsooyan. He had been sitting in one of the fighting chairs, his feet cocked on the gunwale, watching Old Dave chip-flaking paint slowly and with painstaking care, glancing now and then toward the cloud buildup over the Gulf, wondering if he should undertake the fairly simple job of replacing the hinges on the cabin hatch before the afternoon shower came.

Lucien North’s past is darker than the ink on his skin, a reminder of a time when survival was a fight to the death. Seducing his beautiful professor wasn’t supposed to be part of his plan to put it behind him, but there’s something about Eleanor that’s gotten hold of him and won’t let go. Together they light up the night, but will their powerful desire lead them to love—or drag them both to the brink of disaster? Warning: Contains a younger man so hot he might scorch your fingertips, and forbidden lust so tempting, there’s no point in trying to resist.

    Sohrab and Rustum: An Episode

    A young soldier born among Tartars but sired by the mighty Persian lord Rustum, serves in the Tartar army, seeking his great father. To this end, he persuades his general to call a truce and arrange for him to challenge the Persians to single combat. Should he prevail, his father will learn his whereabouts and come to him, or so he thinks, for Sohrab is unaware that his mother, fearing to lose her son, wrote to Rustum that their child was a girl. The Persians agree but have no champion until it is learned that they have recently been joined by Rustum. Although the great hero is contemplating retirement, he reluctantly agrees to be the Persians' champion provided that he may fight unknown. As a result the two warriors engage in a contest that must lead to their mutual grief regardless of who wins—unless they happen to discover their relationship before it is too late. They continually approach but fail to make this discovery until it can no longer give them joy. This tragic poem, like Oedipus Rex, is a sustained piece of dramatic irony, but it differs from that play both in that it is in epic style (though only a episode) and in that the secret which hovers so close to disclosure would produce a happy ending were it ever to break forth. (Summary by T. A. Copeland)
