A sequel to Backwoods and Shivaree. Six months ago Natalie drove away from Louisiana and a three-day, two-man rebound to be reckoned with. Now back in snowy Rochester, she wasn't expecting to see either of those Southern gentlemen again. She certainly wasn't expecting to find one standing in her work parking lot one afternoon without a word of warning. Cold turkey is what Shane's after. He's been with his lover Gabriel for a year now-a year of hot sex and obsessive attraction that's left him with a death grip on the tattered remains of his heterosexuality and too many sleepless nights. Desperate for a clean break, Shane hopes hiding out at Natalie's for a week or two will do the trick. She sure as hell owes him one fine rebound. But Shane quickly discovers that banishing Gabriel from his heart and his head is easier said than done. His cold-turkey recovery is headed straight for an epic relapse, and Shane's going to have to make a choice-the traditional life he thinks he wants, or the man he can't seem to live without.
