Simon Carter has achieved unimaginable success and he owes it all to a man from his past whose scorn set fire to his ambition.
"It's Simple, Simon. You lack ambition."
Chase Garvin's jibe had sent Simon Carter on unexpected paths and brought him unimaginable success. No longer a penniless musician, the highly paid investment banker is going home for the first time in years. He plans to rest, relax, and spend a little time rubbing his ex-lover's nose in his success. A visit to the Renaissance Fair brings this not-quite-so-simple- Simon nose to nose with his past and somehow revenge doesn't seem quite so attractive.
Chase Garvin, Denver, Colorado's very own Pie Man, is still incredibly handsome. What's more, the more mature Chase is very appreciative of Simon's talents.
When the old attraction flares between them, Simon and the Pie Man get caught up in tasting the wares, and neither counts the pennies.
Disappointment crossed Chase's face. "Oh, well. Okay, then." His face brightened rapidly. "Hey, I owe you a date at the Renaissance Faire." He jumped upright and held out a hand to Simon. "Good Sir, shall we?"
"From twelve years ago?"
"Oh, well then," Damnation! How could he be a success in the cutthroat world of international banking and an indecisive, muddling fool in this man's presence? "Are you sure you want to consider this a date?"
Chase wrapped a big hand around the nape of his neck, burrowing under the hair to touch the flesh there. He looked deep into Simon's eyes, "Yeah. I want to consider this a date, more than anything."
