Love Can't Conquer 
(Love Can't series, Bk #1)
by Kim Fielding

Blurb: 

Bullied as a child in small-town Kansas, Jeremy Cox ultimately escaped to Portland, Oregon. Now in his forties, he’s an urban park ranger who does his best to rescue runaways and other street people. His ex-boyfriend, Donny—lost to drinking and drugs six years earlier—appears on his doorstep and inadvertently drags Jeremy into danger. As if dealing with Donny’s issues doesn’t cause enough turmoil, Jeremy meets a fascinating but enigmatic man who carries more than his fair share of problems.

Qayin Hill has almost nothing but skeletons in his closet and demons in his head. A former addict who struggles with anxiety and depression, Qay doesn’t know which of his secrets to reveal to Jeremy—or how to react when Jeremy wants to save him from himself.

Despite the pasts that continue to haunt them, Jeremy and Qay find passion, friendship, and a tentative hope for the future. Now they need to decide whether love is truly a powerful thing or if, despite the old adage, love can’t conquer all.

Excerpt

Oh God. Jeremy tasted like chocolate and berries. His lips were soft, and firm hands cradled Qay’s skull. He thrust his tongue into Qay’s mouth, but he wasn’t one of those assholes who needed to prove their manhood by drilling his tonsils. Jeremy had an agile and playful tongue, teasing Qay’s tongue and nuzzling his teeth. Qay felt dizzy, as if he were balanced at the top of the world, so he wrapped his arms around Jeremy for balance. And Jeremy must have approved, because even though he didn’t break the kiss, he managed a groan from deep in his chest.

Qay had no idea how long Jeremy’s dry spell had been, but his own had lasted eons. A beautiful man—a good man—touching him, wanting him, was almost more than Qay could bear. He’d expected so little from life, had received so little, but how could he have thought he could survive without human contact? Jeremy’s kiss sparked all the synapses that had once responded so eagerly to drugs. Qay’s mind sang, and as his cock filled and he felt Jeremy’s answering hardness pressed against him, Qay very nearly started ripping at their clothes.

But goddammit if the one little bit of his brain that was sane and responsible didn’t choose that moment to speak up. Don’t fuck him over, those bastard cells scolded. Don’t be Donny.

With his biggest show of willpower since he’d kicked drugs, Qay pulled out of Jeremy’s grip. The light was poor, so he squinted to get Jeremy into focus. He saw a muscular, handsome ex-cop with kiss-swollen lips—but he also saw the ghost of a shy little boy and the vulnerability of a man whose lovers had hurt him. And now one of those lovers was dead.

Qay had made a shitload of mistakes in his life. Lying to Jeremy Cox didn’t have to be added to that list.

“I have to tell you something,” he said.

He heard Jeremy’s breath catch. “Nothing good has ever come after that statement,” he said.

“I know.” Jeremy was going to abandon him here at the top of the West Hills once the words were out. Qay would never be able to go to P-Town again, which meant he’d lose his favorite coffeehouse and Rhoda, who was becoming a friend. All Qay would have would be the memory of a nice dinner, a pretty drive, and one earthshaking kiss. 

No, that wasn’t true. He’d also have a little more self-respect because he’d know he’d done the right thing. Even if it hurt.
