Description: Kenzie Zahn is starting over as a single man. Left with few immediate options, he accepts a friend's invitation to visit and house-sit. It's the perfect opportunity for Kenzie to put a little space between the past and present while figuring out the best path for his future.
Mason Hall enjoys the carefree single life. He works hard, plays a little harder, and doesn't think much about settling down. The right man will come along--or not--and he's content to wait. A night out to enjoy a little dancing leads to a hook-up with Kenzie, the kind of man Mason has only ever fantasized about. And Mason can't let him get away.
Kenzie's smitten. Mason is irresistible, but home is a thousand miles away and a long-distance romance isn't workable. A strange twist of identity brings a linked past to light. That's when Kenzie and Mason are brought to the realization that even when Fate arranges a man's destiny, he still has to take a leap of faith, or lose out on love...

I scampered off to the parlor like a lovestruck teenager, snatched the receiver off the hook, and fell breathlessly onto the sofa.
"Hey. I had this number on the service ticket from last fall. Um, is it okay I called?"
I heard the "click" as Tyler hung up the phone upstairs. "Yeah, sure. I guess I should give you my cell phone number, though."
"Yeah. Do it tonight."
My stomach plunged. The weather wasn't conducive to going out. I appreciated Tyler's offer of his truck, but it would be foolish to go out on unfamiliar icy roads when I didn't really need to.
"It's snowing, Mason."
There was a clattering crash in my ear.
"Fuck. Dropped my wrench. Hold on."
I grinned as I listened to more noise and additional foul language. Was he nervous over calling me? His smooth baritone flowed back into my ear. "Sorry about that. I know it's snowing, damn it. So you're not coming into town?"
"I'd better not. I don't know the roads around here that well." I held my breath, dreading his next words. What if he hung up and we never connected again?
But wouldn't that be best? My head and my heart weren't in agreement.
"I guess you're right." He cleared his throat. I heard him take a deep breath. "Kenzie, will you have dinner with me tomorrow night?"
I failed to remember I was thirty-six and a mature man. I ignored how bad of an idea it was to get involved with anyone a thousand miles away from home.
We'd already had each other in the most physically intimate ways possible, and now he wanted to take me to dinner. I pumped my fist in the air in a gesture of victory.
"I would love to have dinner with you, Mason."
