M/M Romance, Marriage of Convenience. Single Parent.
Isaiah is a widowed, gay NFL Player with an artistic non-binary son. He’s pretty much a Papa Bear, protecting his son, still dealing with his grief when he crosses paths with Gender Fluid Chechen Ballet Dancer Victor Aleksandrov. Victor is in a precarious position after speaking out against the atrocities committed against gays in Chechnya. Victor and Isaiah have a hot hot hot one night stand, but don’t anticipate seeing each other again afterwards in spite of the fact they share an agent.
After being refused asylum in the US Isaiah offers to marry Victor to prevent him having to return home (yay thanks downfall of DOMA). Of course they begin to have feelings for each other but keep those under-wraps for the sake of Isaiah’s Son and because after 2-3 years & Victor’s naturalization, they intend to head their separate ways. Personally I loved the push-pull between these two very different characters. You had an out and proud man who risked his life to fight for the protection of others, you also have a much more subdued gay man who’s trying to just get through life after a devastating loss, he hasn’t needed to fight as much and bears a heavy responsibility trying to do the best by his unusual son. This story isn’t neat and tidy with everyone making the right decisions all the time, you have two adults messing up, trying to do their best, trying to get by.
I thought it was great and look forward to reading more in this series and by this author.

Amazon Link: Kat Martin Paranormal Series
Kat Martin’s 2007 book brought up to date. Really liked this “Paranormal Suspense”. Autumn Sommers dreams of a young girl turn out to be more than just dreams. She has to persuade Ben McKenzie that the daughter he believed died after a kidnapping 6 years ago is still alive. Enjoyed the way Autumn’s climbing competence was always at the forefront & that Ben often had to take a step back to admit she was more skilled at certain tasks than him. Definitely revisiting this earlier Romance series.
