Rabbit Wars--What's Behind It

This is a romance, the tale of Jeff and Ash. Rabbits are in there too. It takes place in the fictional town of Crooked Creek, Colorado.
I love old things, historic things. Things with an interesting past...even a disreputable past.
All over the Rockies are small defunct gold mines. Colorado's gold rush was in 1859--pretty much eclipsed by the much bigger event in California a decade earlier. When the ore played out, jobs were lost, people moved away, and some of these towns faded into oblivion.
Over the last twenty-plus years, gambling has returned prosperity to these historic places. New residents have repurposed old buildings; tourists pour in; the City Council has money to work with once again.
If you've never visited a gold town, I encourage you to do so. They're everywhere, not just in Colorado.
I hope you'll check out Rabbit Wars and see what Jeff, Ash, and Rabbits have in common.

After two months in Dubai supervising a construction project, architect Jefferson Fontaine returns home to find his boyfriend boffing the dog walker. Reeling, Jeff grabs his dignity and departs. The arrival of a mysterious wicker box and a letter requesting Jeff’s presence for the reading of a local entrepreneur’s will sends Jeff to his hometown of Crooked Creek, Colorado. The last thing he expects is to encounter an old flame who disappeared fifteen years ago.

After high school, Ashton Eiker hoped to start a future with the boy he loved, but his world crashed when Jeff refused to bring Ash along with him to college. Ash ran from the rejection, but returned to Crooked Creek a year ago, bringing his confectionary talents and opening a chocolate shop. When the great uncle of a childhood friend names Ash in his will, he could hardly anticipate getting a helping of his past in the mix.

Jeff and Ash jointly inherit the historic Jeremiah Rabbit House, and are forced to work together to meet the terms of the will or neither will have the mansion. It’s a battle of opinions, shared personal history, and present attraction, but the true prize isn’t the Rabbit legacy. It's the chance at something better.
