Leo is a lonely workaholic with no time for romance in his life. His job in London takes all his energy and commitment. When he goes to Cornwall to stay with his terminally ill uncle, Edwin, love is the last thing Leo expects to find. Tris lives in a cottage on Edwin's land. Gay, but still half in the closet, he and Leo bond over their affection for Edwin, and the pull of attraction between them proves too strong to ignore.
In Tris's arms, in the wilds of Cornwall, Leo finds a peace he'd forgotten existed. On his return to London, Leo finds himself grieving for more than just the loss of his uncle. When some unexpected news gives Leo the chance to return to Cornwall, he's afraid it will be too late to rekindle things with Tris. But having learned much from his stay with his uncle, Leo doesn't want to look back and wish he'd done things differently. It's time to seize the day - if it's not already too late.

Great story, great depth of understanding of what goes on in men's heads. Arousingly hot the first time around, still arousingly hot on a re-read a year later, knowing the ending.
