The Tenderfoot, Chapter 1:  http://lv2walk.livejournal.com/2407.html

Passion of a Saint, Chapter 1:  http://bb4eva.livejournal.com/601.html#cutid1

I also highly recommend "A Month of Sundays."  Author's Summary: Jack Twist is a professional sign language interpreter who is unhappy in his job. Ennis Del Mar is a pastry chef who owns his own business and teaches classes at a culinary center. Can Ennis help Jack find the ingredient that is missing in his life? 

Chapter 1:  http://mrs-spamlad.livejournal.com/1102.html#cutid1

Enjoy!  :)

I just thought about recommending Tenderfoot here, LOL :laugh:.

Marie is absolutely right with her comment. I enjoy the lightheartedness of the story very much. Lovely and entertaining; no serious, dark or angst stuff for a change. :)

I need help with the name of a story

If I remember it right, Ennis believes that Jack is dead until one day when he sees a black&white picture of Jack with a horse.
He goes to find Jack, who at this point is living with someone else.


Ring any bells?

Yes, bells are ringing, but not the title: Jack breeds Beagles, Jack's Ex (then-Ex) tries to stir trouble, Jack also thought Ennis is dead, I remember a scene with Ennis driving across a bridge. I didn't read the whole story.
I have the title on the tip of my tongue, but can't grasp it. Maybe it'll come to me over night. Or someone else knows it.
Do you think this is the story you have in mind?

Is it "Once Was Lost."?  Oddly enough, I never got around to reading this story either - I may have read the first chapter, I'm not sure.  But I'm thinking I remember a synopsis that they each think the other is dead.

I just finished reading "Passion of a Saint" and loved it! The language was a little stilted, but the story had truth in it.
