An unexpected summer romance stretches into fall in this two-novella set.
When longtime theater professional John heads to Virginia to play Oberon in the Theater in the Woods's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, the last thing he expects is become captivated by Michael, the actor playing Puck.
Despite reeling from a personal loss - and being inexperienced with men - John rushes headlong into an affair with Michael. But their fling may be doomed by secrets and a sinister discovery neither man is prepared for.
Overwhelmed by the intensity of his new relationship, John struggles with the challenges of learning to date again while also coming out to his colleagues, his football rec league friends, and even his ex-wife.
But when he invites his parents over for Christmas, the holiday—featuring Michael's family's amateur production of Twelfth
Night—quickly turns into a French farce of potentially catastrophic proportions, forcing John finally to take the lead in claiming his evolving identity even as he takes the next step in his relationship with Michael.
This anthology contains the first two books in the Love's Labours series: Midsummer and Twelfth Night.
