Things to Aim For Box Set by Rodney Ross

OUT NOW! Things to Aim For Box Set by Rodney Ross

Things to Aim For accurately summarizes this collection of work by Rodney Ross, all previously published by JMS Books and for the first time conjoined.

Whether it’s a Palm Springs Christmas Eve gathering gone awry, an embittered father harassing a vet tech to euthanize his dead son’s cat, or a circuit-party leftover heading to the Midwest for his disapproving father’s funeral and a sister with secrets, every character’s aspiration leads to something unexpected. They flail, they fail, they prevail in finding a measure of serenity and love. Contains the stories:

O, Christmas T(h)ree: Stanton and Clay’s Christmas Eve party becomes a series of threesomes: abandoned kittens, a vet keen on sharing their bed and a frantic couple with a little boy who rented the house from a fraudulent site. December 24th won’t be a silent night.

Smoking with Didi: Pete makes a reluctant trip to small-town Ohio for his father’s funeral. There he’s battered by flashbacks of an anxious adolescence and his late father’s rejection. His sister Didi has a few things she wants to get off her chest, but the surprise may be hers when Pete opens a floodgate of his own secrets.

The Old Man at My Door: A winter storm warning blankets the news stations before the blizzard itself. But at Renata’s farmhouse door, already flocked with snow, comes an unexpected knock: Albin Lawrence, an old man who grew up in the house. Renata’s caution yields to common sense as she welcomes him in for a tour. What danger, really, could a shaky man over eighty, who has only one arm, represent?

Bended Knee: When restaurateur Hugh Neumann rebukes Oliver Nicholas’s very public proposal to his boyfriend during a Valentine’s Day dinner, the diverted Cupid’s arrow strikes Hugh not in the heart, but in the ass. An unrelenting media storm of commentary begins to affect home life with his partner Dominick and forces Hugh to question their decade-long relationship.

Otis: An embittered old man’s Christmas Eve trip to the veterinarian with his late son’s cat Otis yields an unexpected lesson. As the snowfall mounts and city streets become impassable, is it too late for redemption?

That person is Tobin, Joah’s husband, who never gave up hope of finding him again.

The Regent’s Knight: Prince Amery is heir to the throne of Pharr. The royal advisers pressure him to take the crown and assume the throne, but doing so will force him to give up the one person he loves most in this world — Sir Tovin Raimus, from the southland. But when the castle is attacked, Amery must decide whether to take his rightful place on the throne or forsake his kingdom for the love of one man.

The sweetest revenge is to enjoy each other and some sweet adult time together. Red velvet cake may be just a mixture of eggs, butter, and milk, but the icing on the cake is the love two Southern women have for each other.

Married to the Struggle: Sedalia and Charlotte meet standing up for what they believe is right. But is their love enough to sustain when Charlotte is arrested for protesting in the early morning hours of their wedding day? Sedalia believes in social justice but will she allow it to prevent her from enjoying her special day?

Sometimes She Gets Lucky: Nona Essex had no idea she’d find the woman to ignite the embers of her heart after a break-up at her sorority sister’s wedding reception. But a chance encounter with a lawyer named after a jazz singer and a late night dinner featuring a Southern staple on whole wheat bread inspires her to reconsider opening herself up to the possibilities.
