Hearts Afire November
To Heaven Resembled -Pepper Espinoza
Firefighter Lance Stuart is minding his own business when a man on the street stops him with a simple expression of gratitude. He falls into the conversation with the man, and learns that Jakob is far more than what one might expect from a busker. For starters, heís gorgeous. Heís also funny, charming, and flirty. Lance immediately wants to get to know him better.
Jakob Fox spends his days performing on the sidewalk and his evenings in various coffee shops and clubs, reading his poetry. But he always takes the time to thank firefighters when he sees them. He knows first-hand how much firefighters risk and what they sacrifice. His father was a New York firefighter, until he died in the line of duty. As a result, Jakob can show his appreciation, but he always keeps his emotional distance--from everybody. He also suffers from almost debilitating anxiety.
He wants to be with Lance, but he canít handle the emotional stress of being with a firefighter. Jakob needs to decide if they have a future, or if he should just walk away.
