Max Lancaster’s neighbor–his muse, the young ballerina Elena–has gone missing. Between secrets from his past and the fact that he’s altering his paintings in his sleep, Max is worried that he’s lost his mind. By the time forensic artist Sumner Ellison arrives as part of the investigation even Max can see himself in the role of “person of interest.”
Sumner Ellison doesn’t believe that Max killed Elena, yet he isn’t certain Max is entirely sane. Sumner offers Max oblivion in bed and unflinching honesty. Max takes what Sumner offers, losing himself in the younger man’s body while hiding his heart from Sumner’s love.
When doubt pulls them apart, it takes the all of Max’s passion and the purity of Sumner’s faith to find answers create a love that won’t fade away over time.
