Things fall apart, but for Father Chris Seib, they are just getting good. He has spent much of his forty-one years remaining true to his vows and serving his congregants righteously. But now that Father Jack has moved back to town, he isn’t sure how long that’s going to last. Chris has longed for Jack since they were in high school, long before they took their vows. Now being in a room with him and praying the rosary by his side, it’s all Father Chris can do to keep himself from following his passion. 

When Chris’ colleague and friend commits suicide, rumors spread that the deceased had been engaging in a long-term homosexual affair. The Arch Bishop announces that all gay priests, sexually active or not, will be immediately discharged from service, sparking a witch-hunt. Now Chris and everyone in the diocese must reevaluate his devotion to the church, and to the people whose faith is in their hands.

But Father Chris can’t stop himself from the godless lust he feels. If Father Jack proclaims that those feelings are requited, all hell is sure to break loose. 

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 16, 2007 – Dangerous secrets unravel as two Catholic priests rekindle their forbidden romance in this steamy suspense tale from Schiefelbein (Vampire Vow). For Fr. Chris Sieb, manager of St. John s Diocesan Center in Kansas City, the return of his old school-boy crush, Fr. Jack Canston, from Montana after 25 years is both a thrill and a day of reckoning. Their overwhelming feelings for each other lead Chris to reconsider not only his vow of celibacy but also his faith in his calling. The shocking suicide of another gay closeted friend, Fr. Eddie Gerhardt, who felt his homosexuality needed to be cured for him to be a good priest, adds more fuel to Chris s midlife crisis. Both Chris and Jack must find the courage to make some hard choices. Schiefelbein presents the dilemma of gay priests with sensitivity, exploring the nature of faith in God and love: Faith means loving when you don t feel like it. It s not letting fear decide what you do.
