Sparks fly when Chance meets tall, sexy Xav at a Wilmington bar and they have the hottest one-nighter of their lives. But Chance doesn’t do repeats, Xav seems detached, and they go their separate ways without a word. Later, when closeted Assistant District Attorney C. Evan “Chance” Fairchild meets Dare's Landing's newest deputy sheriff, Xavier “Xav” Constantine, Evan isn’t only wary. He’s irritated as hell.

Xavier is a former FBI agent turned deputy sheriff who is hot on the trail of a South American child prostitution ring. Evan is fighting to put an end to rampant cocaine trafficking and chafing under the thumb of an election-hungry boss. When someone tries to kill the eleven-year-old witness who holds the key to both their investigations, they’re forced to work together as they put their lives on the line to protect him. As Chance and Xav collide in the heat of a sweltering North Carolina summer, dodging bullets and chasing bad guys isn’t the only action going on.

Sr Reviewer for the Paranormal Romance Guild

Aisling Mancy is not a new author to me. Aisling has written an astoundingly beautiful yet horrific trilogy series penned as C. Kennedy in the YA genre. Omorphi, Tharros and Elipda also deals with the topic of child sex trafficking. I have read that entire Award winning series and reviewed the three. Now this topic is part of this gritty adult thriller shared with author Shira Anthony in A Solitary Man.

The sweltering heat in the humid American South brings together two young men both with tremendous psychological baggage. On this night, Assistant District Attorney C. Evan “Chance” Fairchild meets Xavier “Xav” Constantine both are looking for a one night hook up. The evening successfully is memorable for them both in more ways than sex.

As we learn more about the two, and they begin learning about each other since fate casts her net …..they become involved in possibly more than they ever dreamed.

This story is not for the faint of heart, as both men are challenged by the horrors of their pasts, their regard for each other’s integrity and finally their love for each other….

A do not miss story……..
