Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: Alex watched Jolie pour an odd number of cocktails. "Who else is coming to dinner?"
"Your old flame Duncan Stone and a friend." Jolie scooped up the tray of drinks and nodded toward the parlor. "Shall we?"
Alex sounded miffed. "I'd hardly consider Duncan an old flame. I mean, we burned the sheets a couple of times, but--"
"Ah, the trials, tribulations and random rutting of young Alexander B.C."
"'Before Cord'," Jolie explained. "Have you forgotten how wild you were before hooking up with Mr. Right out there? Or what a smitten kitten you were around Duncan and how you ravished the Quarter's gay population like Sherman rampaging through Georgia?"
Alex demurred. "I was new to gay life and only finding my way, Jolie. You even called it the kid-in-the-candy-store syndrome."
Jolie retreated, not wanting to upset his young friend. "True enough, but as your self-styled mentor, I insist you not forget where you've been or you're sure to step in it. We'll just call Duncan a crotch throb from the past and let it go at that. F.Y.I., though, you are being waaaaay too sensitive. God, I hate that word!"
"Me too." Alex brightened. "But you're right. I guess there are personal things I'm still uncomfortable talking about."
Jolie sniffed. "A regrettable tendency that happily vanishes with age."
"Be serious. You know damned well I consider myself your protégée and that I'm trying my best to make things work with Cord. I just don't want my randy past to muddy the waters."
"For God's sake, cheri! We all have a past, even you at the ripe old age of twenty-seven and most assuredly that dreamboat waiting in the parlor. Do you think Cord pined away in some damned ivory tower before you came along?"
Alex sighed. "I guess not."
Jolie pressed his case. "In any event, Duncan Stone is a gentleman and a scholar and certainly nothing to be ashamed of. He was an absolute rock when you needed help stepping out of the armoire, and he's as happy for you and Cord as I am. Remember that."
"You're right again," Alex conceded. "It's my old guilt and paranoia."
"It'll go away in time, bébé. I promise. In the meantime, a drink is the best way to wash away your woes. Hell, there's enough rum in these things to knock your rocks off. Did I say rocks?! I meant socks! Wouldn't Freud have a field day with that one!"
Alex chuckled and followed him to the parlor. "At least you didn't say--"
"Cocktails!" Jolie announced.
