Return to Sapphire Cay for Christmas. Lucas and Dylan invite their friends to share in their Christmas celebrations on the island along with Lucas’s sister, Tasha, and her husband. Christmas is a time for family, forgiveness, and to look to the future, and this year Dylan has to face up to all three.
Unearthing the memories of two men in love, frozen in time and buried among the history of the island, Lucas and Dylan realize that sometimes loving someone is not always enough. It’s about being brave and taking the next step, to learn from the past to move forward.
Family has always been important to Lucas since his own was struck by tragedy. Though Dylan disapproves of his methods, Lucas has nothing but good intentions about wanting Dylan to reconcile with his father. The two Gray men haven’t spoken properly in years, their relationship strained by heartache and mistakes reaching back into Dylan’s childhood.
Forgiveness is a hard thing to give and sometimes even harder to receive.
Two trips and a few minutes later, Edward settled back on the couch. Sipping his wine, he waited as Tasha decided what they were going to play next. Pictionary had been interesting, particularly Scott’s drawing of a pepper mill that looked more like a cock, and in a game of Who Am I? Lucas thought he was so funny sticking a post-it on Edward’s forehead and making him the Queen of England. He just hoped it wasn’t Twister next. He wasn’t feeling all that bending after so much food and drink.
“So, we’re going to play our own version of the Newlyweds game,” Tasha enthused. “We’ll be in our couples and it’s to see which couple knows each other the best. I’ve got some questions and you can write your answers down and see if they match up.”
Edward looked at Jamie. How was this game fair? Scott and Adam had known each other for forever, Dylan and Lucas were practically married, and Liam and Tasha were married. Edward felt underprepared. What kind of questions? Like, what was Jamie’s favorite color? Was he supposed to know that? Had Jamie ever told him?
“Who wants to go first?”
“Here,” Jamie said.
Edward tried his best not to look horrified when Jamie raised his hand. Clearly, the man was drunk.
Jamie took the paper and pens from Tasha and sat back down. He smiled as he met Edward’s eyes and leaned in to kiss him. “Don’t worry. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know all the answers.” He handed Edward one of the pens and pads of paper. “We just have to get enough to beat Scott and Adam.” Grinning, he shuffled over a cushion to put some space between them on the couch.
“No cheating,” Scott chimed.
Edward shot him a look. Cheating? Oh it was so on. “We’ll be fine,” he said firmly and turned to Tasha. “First question please.”
“Okay. You’ll both need to write down an answer. So, starting with something simple, what is Jamie’s favorite color?”
