Daniel Richards is a private chef in New York City who has committed over a decade to his skills and passion. He has carved out a name for himself in the industry and has bookings for parties and dinners months in advance. Now that he’s in his midforties, however, he’s come to the realization that he’s lonely and desperate for companionship. Two days before Valentine’s Day, he meets Keith Maxwell at a farmer’s market and can’t keep the much younger man out of his thoughts. Keith is eager and willing to take a chance with someone older, but Daniel’s reluctance stops Keith’s every attempt. Worried his career will suffer if he dedicates time to a serious romance, or that Keith won’t be satisfied with someone so much older, Daniel nearly thwarts his own attempts at finding happiness.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Daily Dose package "Never Too Late."

Short stories tend to worry me. I'm not a short story fan usually. Not because they are bad, it's because I'm greedy and want more time with the characters. However, this story was perfect at the time. Stuck in a waiting room, needing to get my mind off things. This did the trick. Daniel and Keith were fabulous! Sweet, tender, reluctant. This short story is emotion filled and absolutely lovely. I'd read these characters in a full length novel, no question. C.S. Poe managed to make the short story feel like it was worth your time, keep you smiling and giggling. By the end I felt so happy and glad I gave it a chance! You absolutely should!
