From the Get Go When Texas artist Dakin goes to Ottawa, Canada for a showing, he meets Jeff, manager of the Sussex Gallery. They come from different worlds, but the attraction is immediate, and soon Dakin and Jeff negotiate their own brand of diplomatic relations, forgetting all about art or sightseeing. The more they get to know each other, the more they like what they see. Dakin has a life to go back to in Texas, though, and Jeff has his own in Canada. The two of them try to find a way to make their growing love survive. First Steps Abandoned by his partner in the wilds of Alaska, Peter is at the end of his rope. He has a cabin falling down around his ears, two young babies to care for, and too much alone time to worry. It's enough to make a man rethink wanting to be a dad. Park Ranger Chad thinks Peter could use some help, especially since Peter's little cabin might not be safe. When he takes Peter and family in, he decides that the attraction the two of them felt right off might become much more. Can he convince Peter that they can do more than keep each other warm?
