Trip is well known for being a social
misfit, yet a brilliant scientist that has the looks of a
football linebacker as well as for not quite hiding the fact
the he is gay. When his cousin Melinda died, her husband,
and Tripís business partner, Bob became the focus of
whatever social attentions Trip had to spare Ė but he never
imagined that at one point Bob would start courting him like
a lover. Dare he take Bob seriously or is this just a
lonely manís attempt not to drown?
Bob is all business, except when it
comes to Trip. First as his wifeís cousin and then as his
business partner, Bob always had his eye on Trip. What Bob
didnít realize was that all this time Trip interested him
more than as just a friend Ė it took Melindaís death and
Tripís constant presence to make thing clear for Bob, but
will Trip take him seriously?
Acquisitions and Mergers: The Four of Wands is
a heartwarming story about love, death and new loves
discovered. Trip is a singularly likeable character in his
utter social cluelessness mixed with scientific brilliance
and an occasional ounce of insight. Bob is harder to
decipher, yet he is just as compelling a character with his
genuine grief for his dead wife and newfound love for Trip.
The best part of this story is all the dancing that Bob and
Trip do around one another while things become clear, yet no
one knows who is really in the driverís seat of this romance
until the very end. This compelling and charming story has
definitely placed Lucius Parhelion in my list of authors to
watch out for! Acquisitions and Mergers: The Four of
Wands is a great read full of surprises and passion
perfect for readers who like their romance with a spice of
emotional intrigue before ending in the expected HEA.
