Ethan Holloway, an Indiana doctor, waits on the seawall of Robin Hood’s Bay, England, remembering what brought him there. While serving with the US Army four years ago, Ayers Bard, a British Intelligence officer, saved Ethan’s life after he was left for dead by insurgents. In turn, Ethan rescued Ayers when a second attack struck their position.
A fateful meeting at a bar in Paris finally connected Ethan with his mysterious soldier, and mutual attraction became a love story that spanned years… until Ethan received the call declaring his lover dead. He arrives expecting to find closure and a companion in his grief, but instead discovers unanswered questions and maybe a miracle.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2014 Daily Dose package “Mended”.
The story of Ethan and Ayers’ love is not a conventional one. They meet when Ayers saves Ethan’s life when Ethan is serving the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. The spark of a connection forms between the men, but it’s years before they find each other again. Then they begin years of hopping continents and brief liaisons that evolves into love.
Ethan is interesting and likable as the bored physician who decides to reach out and grab some excitement in life. Ayers is perfect as the mysterious and loyal British agent. Together they forge an unusual relationship that seems to fulfill both their need for human contact, and ultimately love. It’s impossible to not be brokenhearted along with Ethan when he is notified of Ayers death. It’s also gripping when he cannot refuse helping give Ayers a final farewell with Ayers’ father.
This story is has real action, a love that stands the test of time and distance, angst and sadness, and a promise that, despite his crushing loss, Ethan just might get a happy ending after all.
