Ben Carrington is a master carpenter who started learning his trade as a teenager. He makes a good living from his craft and lives a quiet life, keeping to himself, avoiding the limelight as much as possible. But sometimes that is hard to do, given the family he’s part of. Carrington Home Designs has been in business in Harperville for over a hundred years. Ben uses 100% recycled and reclaimed wood to make unique furniture that both protects the environment and provides pleasure for the owners. Which is how he meets the famous interior designer Caleb Hardwick. In conjunction with a statewide initiative to provide affordable housing for the urban poor, Cal is supplying design consulting services at a significantly reduced fee for an apartment building that is being fully refurbished in Harperville. He chooses Ben to build a unique piece of furniture for each of the twenty apartments that will keep the costs low and still impart the best aesthetic quality. Their attraction to each other is instantaneous, but each man resists it. Ben has never been in love and does not trust that what he feels is more than a need to scratch an itch with an eligible and desirable man. Cal, who is a widower, won’t accept that he’s feeling more than friendship for the talented carpenter. So why can’t they stay away from each other? Why is their attraction growing? And what will happen if they keep refusing to acknowledge that something real is developing between them?
