Aidan Montgomery believes in perfection. He wants the life of luxury provided by the perfect man who has wealth and clout at his fingertips. He believes that Senator Philip Brenton is that man, but not everything is perfect in Philip’s world.

Rafe McCafferty is a man of substance. He sees beauty where others see imperfection. Rafe has encountered men like Aidan. He knows he should bypass the event of getting to know the prissy man but the attraction keeps Aidan in Rafe’s thoughts.

When the Senator’s secrets start to surface, will Aidan chose perfection or substance?

What a delightful tale. Braden Williams created a host of fascinating characters for this strongly plotted story. It’s a story I won’t soon forget. This is not a holiday story, but one scene has forever altered Nat King Cole’s Merry Christmas in my mind. The humor and life lessons were all brilliantly interwoven.

Aidan sees his flaws as what they are and makes no excuses. He’s a very likeable character. Rafe is the man you hope to get trapped in the woods with for an indefinite amount of time. He’s the type of character that makes me wish for a blizzard and an impassible road and plenty of “supplies”. In a word, yummy!

Those who enjoy rugged men and government officials getting their due will be happy they read Gone Stumping.
