Lavender Shores’s resident tattoo artist, Connor Clark, looks the part—six foot six, musclebound, and covered in ink—and most definitely doesn’t blend in. Grafted into the Bryant family as a teenager to escape his abusive father, the Bryants saved his life, but Connor has never truly felt a part of the founding family royalty. And if his heart’s desire were revealed, it would betray everything the Bryants have done for him.
Micah Bryant was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He’s always had everything he ever wanted—save the one he desires most. Even moving to New York City for a few years didn’t dampen his passion. Not that Micah had expected it to. He’s known his destiny since he was nine years old, the moment it had walked through his door.
After years of longing, years of secrets and stolen moments of passion and love, Connor weakens enough to allow the town to see how he feels, and let the Bryants know his love for Micah is anything but brotherly. But no sooner had the decision been made than Connor’s biological family returns and shatters it all. Still, Micah holds on to the belief that their romance was written in the stars, but maybe he’d been wrong all those years….
I am new to this series, and while I am now off to go read the first four books (thanks, Rosalind, grrr, lol)I am thrilled that I could read this one and not be lost. The story was so well crafted that while reading the others would enhance the reading, I’m sure, it isn’t necessary.
Micah and Connor… what can I say? Such a hard road for these two wonderful men. And I truly felt for each of them and understood each POV. That’s what made this story so wow, so powerful for me. Often I click with only one of the main MCs, or the fretting of the guys drives me nuts a little, but in this case, every word, thought, and action not only made sense, it was needed as these two found a way to each other and a way to finally dig deep and be strong for themselves as well.
I cannot wait to read more from this author and in this series. I am in love with the central family/ies of this series and want more! Happy reading… I’m off to buy book one
Rosalind Abel grew up tending chickens along side her sweet and faithful Chow, Lord Elgin. While her fantasy of writing novels was born during her teen years, she never would have dreamed she’d one day publish steamy romances about gorgeous men. However, sometimes life turns out better than planned.
In between crafting scorching sex scenes and helping her men find their soul mate, Rosalind enjoys cooking, collecting toys, and making the best damn scrapbooks in the world (this claim hasn’t been proven, but she’s willing to put good money on it).
She adores MM Romance and the power it has to sweep the reader away into worlds filled with passion, steam, and love. Rosalind also enjoys her collection of plot bunnies, and welcomes new fuzzy ones in her home all the time, so feel free to send any adorable ones her way.
