The Great Urge DownwardAfter fleeing his past, one man finds that the present has its own dangers
For Lance, things always came easily. With looks to die for and a family fortune propping up everything he did, he tended to come out on top, no matter the circumstances. He had it all: a perfect marriage and a distinguished career in the navy—and the notoriety that came with it. But it all fell apart when his true desires came out and drove him down a self-destructive path to the small Central American town of Puerto Veragua.
Here he takes whatever and whomever he wishes, living a life devoted solely to cheap thrills, pleasure, and desire. However, when Robbie Cosling, a young man with a past of his own, arrives, they create a love that will change both men’s lives forever.
The sequel to Perfect Freedom, The Great Urge Downward continues Robbie Cosling’s journey of discovery and love as he learns he must risk it all in order to have a shot at true passion.
