Matt has been a prostitute for years in order to survive and to raise his younger half brother Sam.  The only time of the year that he took off from his ‘job’ was the Christmas holiday.

 

Everything changed when Kevin entered their lives and explained that Matt is the lost Fae King.  For the first time there is stability in their lives, a roof over their heads, and food on the table thanks to Kevin.  Even so, Matt cannot stop worrying that the Fae Prince will disappear and they will be back to having nothing.

 

Christmas this year means that the brothers will have real presents and more food than they need.  As for Matt he feels that he’s already received his gift because he finally understands what the term ‘making love’ truly means.  Concerns that Kevin will leave or that someone will take him away keep Matt awake at night as Christmas approaches.

 

Old Traditions has new meaning to a badly abused young man deserving of every happiness.  A complex blend of romance, fae relationships, and painful memories from the past, Old Traditions tells an emotional tale.  Matt has every reason to worry with so many years of ingrained abuse, he can’t help it.  The fae aspect of the plotline continues to taunt on the sidelines rather than take center stage, but it is important to the overall story.  Old Traditions keeps the reader engaged and hungry for more.

Recently introduced, grad student Ben Roth and surfer Grant Moody arrange a date at a club and heat up the dance floor with their moves.  Before the night is over Ben finally loses his virgin status with Grant in an incredible, unforgettable sexual encounter.  Oddly enough all the lights on the block, including the street lights blow at the same time.

 

While marveling at the lighting situation and basking in the afterglow of glorious sex, R.C Irwin and his cat Ina arrive on the doorstep.  The stranger tells a wild tale of counterparts and soul mates uniting as one.  He talks of soul mates given a foothold into the supernatural world where one of the pair sees everything fae that no human can and the other is able to take a secondary form.

 

Drawn to each other in a way never felt before Grant and Ben aren’t certain what to do.  Should they accept the changes and deal with it or go their separate ways and let it fade away. Oh, and don’t forget about Cyril Soldati who tries to recruit shape changers by violent means.  If they could turn back the hands of time – would they?

 

A quirky, original tale balanced with a true love story comes to life in Sea Change, the first book in the Zephyr Ranch series.  The characters are refreshingly realistic and the plot is definitely unique.  Sea Change captures the reader’s imagination and scores big.

Russian figure skater Mikhail ‘Misha’ Reznikov and his partner took the Olympic gold while the Americans Dev Avira and Bailey Robinson took the silver.  Away from the press, the fans, and all the rest Misha and Dev were secretly a couple.  They separately announce their retirement from competition and the desire to skate professionally or perhaps coach young hopefuls.

 

For the time being Misha and Dev agree to keep their relationship under wraps, only their skating partners know the truth.  Dev is afraid they might lose lucrative deals if anyone finds out, but worse would be the repercussions to Misha’s family back home in a non-tolerant Russia.

 

Keeping their love a secret begins to take a toll.  Their reasons are sound in their heads but hurting their hearts so badly.  Hopefully they can set their secrets free soon.  First thing will be to tell Dev’s mother.  Yikes.

 

Holding the Edge focuses on the hurt caused by secrets and the inevitable fallout.  Olympic skaters Misha and Dev are perceived enemies on the ice and lovers behind closed doors.  No one would expect them to love each other.  Their problems aside, Misha and Dev display an honest and sensitive love as they try to share their relationship with the world.  A conflicted, sexy tale, Holding the Edge comes out on top.

Everyone who listens to music knows of Johnny Rayne and his band Storm.  He’s accomplished everything he set out to do all those years ago with hit albums, number one songs, sell out concerts, and the rest of it.  Lately however, Johnny can’t seem to shake the restlessness and sense of emptiness. When he tells his inner circle that he wants to quit Johnny was hoping for support with his decision, but that definitely doesn’t happen.

 

Moving to a house in Elkins, West Virginia is about as different from L.A. as a world famous singer can get.  He sold three other houses and most of the furnishings without a qualm because he never had a chance to live in them.  This place however will be a home where he can build a new life and hopefully have a family at some point in the future.  Johnny is determined to go the whole nine yards here.  The first step though is to honest with himself, to accept who he truly is.

 

Ironically it is Johnny’s first meeting with Sheriff Virgil Grissom that begins to make everything crystal clear for the singer.  Grissom knows exactly who and what Johnny’s been hiding all these years and he’s got no intention of waiting around for Johnny to figure things out.  Johnny said he wanted a new life – be careful what you wish for…

 

An enchanting blend of drama, heart, and sexual discovery, A Change of Tune strikes just the right chord.  Total opposites attract and blow the roof off with their blinding eroticism from lusty and steamy hot sex to tender and touching lovemaking.  As open as Johnny is to those he loves, Grissom is the complete opposite with an impregnable shield surrounding his heart.  A Change of Tune is a heartwarming story of relationships between lovers, family, and friends.  Everything works out, maybe a little too neatly in the end.  Nonetheless, A Change of Tune has spirited characters you will root for.  Curl up in a soft chair and enjoy as Johnny’s life unfolds in A Change of Tune.

For the most part the pack in St. Jerome has settled down and accepted their alpha’s male mate.  It hasn’t been easy for Alpha Sheriff Scott Dupree either.  He’d always thought he’d be Alpha and hopefully Sheriff of St. Jerome with a wife and children some day.  After mating artist and P.I. Ted Canedo however he can’t imagine loving anyone else.

 

Ironically it’s one of Scott’s worst detractors in the pack who allows the alpha the opportunity of practicing fatherhood.  Bigot and bully wolf shifter Wyatt Boureau and his wife Marie die in a senseless car accident leaving two orphan sons.  The youngest is Timmy, a sweet little boy.  His older brother Charles is a known bully.

 

When no one in the pack steps forth to raise the brothers Scott and a very reluctant Ted agree to watch the boys over the summer break until someone hopefully comes forward.  The boys are werewolf shifters so having the county take them is not an option.  They are only to have the boys until a family is found.  What happens when Scott and Ted begin to feel the boys make them a family?

 

Enjoy a large slice of southern charm with Bayou des Enfants.  Author Lynn Lorenz returns to St. Jerome parish and the wonderfully complex characters she created for the Rougaroux Social Club stories.  Witty, fresh dialogue between the adults and kids rings true with some added hilarious comments as well.  Fans will love Bayou des Enfants, while new fans are sure to look for previous books.  Hopefully Lorenz isn’t done with this pack.
