'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
--Miguel de Cervantes
Tate attempts to save the day when an acquaintance of James' becomes involved with a shady character.
James Lucas is a complex man with a varied past. Now that he is in a committed relationship with Tate and Sebastian, he has adjusted his lifestyle accordingly. Even so, when Tate encounters Oliver, one of James' attractive former acquaintances, he finds himself battling feelings of jealousy and insecurity. But it soon becomes clear that Oliver is caught up in his own battles with a shady member of the local kink community. Tate finds himself sympathizing with the confused young man and is pleased when James takes it upon himself to intervene by discrediting Oliver's tormentor. When James' actions backfire, making them all targets and alienating Oliver, Tate decides that it is up to him to try to fix things even if it means putting himself in danger.
