Rock musician, Daniel Sanborn, has given his lover, Ramón, too many reasons to practice forgiveness. Their relationship is still recovering from the last crisis when a ghost from Daniel's past walks in to audition for the band.

Melanie is the widow of Josh Taylor, Daniel's first love. She's come unhinged since the funeral, talking to her dead husband when she thinks she's alone. Daniel shrugs it off to grief until her ghost makes its appearance.

Apparently, Daniel and Josh have unfinished business, and not the kind Daniel feels comfortable sharing with Ramón. Will Daniel's twelve-year-old secrets be the last straw in their rocky relationship?


"Only One Regret” by Ali Katz is a compelling read. The characters are well drawn and the plot is nicely developed. A supernatural mystery, hot sex, and interesting characters ...."

“You should talk to her. She’s probably as concerned as you, working with an old rival.”

<“Then why’d she audition?” Pushing his mostly empty plate aside, Daniel glanced up to meet his lover’s eyes. He wasn’t going to let go of this. “Rival? The woman was not a rival, Ray. It was strictly no contest.”

And even if she knew about him, Daniel couldn’t blame Melanie for his own decision to leave. He couldn’t even blame Josh. Josh didn’t want him to go. In fact, he’d asked him to stay. Asked, begged, demanded…but Daniel’s anger wouldn’t allow him to listen. He made a preemptive move, knowing who the loser would be in the end.

Ramón studied him, worrying his lip a little. “Then what’s the problem?”

“No problem, I’ll talk to her,” Daniel said with a sigh. “She’ll be out here at the end of the month. I’ll take her to dinner. Is that good enough?” He stretched his leg under the table, his bare foot reaching for Ramón’s crotch. Connecting, he glided along his already half-hard length.

“Sure.” The sexy sound might have been a purr. Ramón slid lower in his seat, shortening the stretch and increasing the pressure. “I’ll come, too.”

Not exactly the coming Daniel had in mind, but probably a good idea if he wanted to avoid future confrontations. He wouldn’t put it past Ramon to shove him at the woman and then get jealous.

If I hadn’t been such a slut in the past… Too late to change that now, or save his reputation. But, Ramón had a streak of reasonable in him, didn’t he? Always these constant tests.

“Give me the look, love.” Daniel’s toes straddled Ramón’s cock through the denim and stroked.

Ramón’s face softened, eyelids drooped, breath quickened. “What look?” There was a definite drowsy quality to his voice. He was close.

As Daniel used the ball of his foot to add pressure, the dark, Latino eyes glazed over.

He couldn’t fault Ramón’s jealousy. For a year after they moved in together, Daniel did nothing to temper his wild-boy image. He’d almost lost what they had together before ever realizing how much he wanted it. He’d been clean and sober—and monogamous—for eleven months. Ramón might take a while to learn to trust him again, but Daniel had embraced patience.

The bulge beneath Daniel’s foot grew hot with the friction. Daniel followed the rod to its base, slid his foot between Ramón’s legs and pressed his balls tight against his body. Ramón grunted, his lips parted, his eyes rolled back.

“That look,” Daniel said on a breath. Warmth flowed through him. “That ‘yes, yes, yes’ look. Take ’em off, love.”
