    Summary

    The savages in the Holy Land have no care for the Lord’s truth or beauty. They were heathens, squatting in Jerusalem, defiling it with their false idols. They visited atrocities on one another and on the good Christians who tried to act as their salvation. The Lord will reward those who cleanse His temple. It is just, and it is right. And so Nicolo goes.

    Why, then, is his enemy the most beautiful thing God’s hands have ever shaped?

    Summary

    Nicolo Genova, or Nicky to his American friends, is just trying to get through his PhD program. He's writing his dissertation on Post-classical homoerotic poetry, but he cannot find anyone who speaks an extinct dialect of Arabic so he can translate a famed love poem by a little known poet, al-Kaysani.

    Strangely enough, his friend knows a professor on campus who can translate the poem. What starts as a simple request for assistance on his dissertation blossoms into something that Nicky -- shy, reserved Nicky who abandoned his plans for the priesthood months before ordination -- had never imagined for himself: true love.

    What he doesn't know is that Dr. Joseph Jones (his handsome, erudite, kind, lovely Joe) is harboring a secret too large for anyone to believe -- and that secret might just cost them everything.
