It’s Valentine’s Day and Officer Joshua Dabbs has big plans involving his lawyer boyfriend, Garrison, and a certain set of rings. Unfortunately, between Muttlee the Destructo-Dog, a burnt dinner, and missed reservations, nothing is going the way Josh planned. Garrison doesn’t think the holiday’s “ruined,” though, so Josh makes his own moment and pops the question he’s tied himself up in knots waiting to ask.

Courting 2: Cornerstone 

Josh is happy being a beat cop in a small Vermont town — He has Garrison, their dog, and a wide group of friends and family, even though he hasn’t spoken to his own blood relatives in years.  But then Josh gets called back home to Ohio right before Christmas, when his sister tracks him down to inform him his father passed away weeks ago. He arrives to find that the requirements of his father’s regarding the family business will have left everyone in an uproar.  Lucky for Josh, he has a live-in lawyer at hand — He just has to come up with a solution that everyone can live with, including himself.

Courting 3: Concordant

Courting 3: Concordant  

Officer Joshua Dabbs has been working long hours due to budget cuts and the holiday crazies, so he’s not thrilled when his patrol partner lets slip that Josh’s husband, lawyer Garrison Williams, has planned a weekend trip for two to New York City right before Christmas.  Josh hates traveling, especially around the holidays, so Garrison shows how persuasive a lawyer can be with tactics not fit for the inside of a court room. Once they’re actually at the hotel in New York, Josh relaxes after Garrison agrees to stay in for the night. Garrison has a plan, though, that results in Josh getting to open a very intimate Christmas present early.

Courting 4: Concur  

Officer Joshua Dabbs has been married to his husband, lawyer Garrison Williams, for six years. So he still remembers what Garrison’s like with a wedding to plan, and he knows that when their two good friends, Rick and Emmanuel, decide to tie the knot, he won’t be seeing much of his husband until it’s over. But Emmanuel needs advice, and Josh finds himself asking questions about his and Garrison’s relationship that he hadn’t thought of before — mainly, do they want kids? As usual, Garrison knows what Josh is thinking before he does.

Courting 5: Competition 

Officer Joshua Dabbs and his husband, lawyer Garrison Williams, met while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps ten years ago. Their lives are very different now than from when they first started dating: they’re out of the Corps and the closet, they’re married and own a house, and they’re getting ready to adopt two kids through the state. Josh figures their life is pretty much perfect. When their friends challenge them to run in the annual Marine Corps Marathon, they find themselves back in D.C. and visiting their old stomping grounds around Quantico. Garrison and Josh enter a friendly competition to see who finishes the marathon first.
