A queer retelling of Romeo & Juliet, except no one has to bury their gays.
A decades-old family rivalry is reaching a boiling point as the patriarchs vie for a seat in Congress. Democrat vs Republican, Muslim vs Christian, Hashmi vs Swain — the Midwestern town of Arbor Hills is one spark away from an explosion of violence. So when two men find themselves irresistibly drawn together at a party, only to discover they were born on opposite sides of a bloody battle line, Matthew Swain and Rabi Hashmi know they should leave well enough alone.
The pull between them is magnetic, though, and it's too strong to ignore. Unable to resist, they meet again in secret. Generations of hatred can't temper the passionate love growing between them, but two men falling for each other in the middle of a war zone can't hold back the inevitable clash.
And when decades of political, religious, and personal strife finally come to a head, there will be blood.

A Roadmap to disaster
L.A. Witt writes a compelling romance story, with the ingredients for a triple murderous roadmap to disaster; in telling the romance between two older college boys from the opposites of families.

Their discovery of each other at a Halloween party, an unfolding acquaintance - open to the discovery for romance; the distance between opposites dissolved into a relationship for love …
