Lamont Price’s romance novels have been a hit for the past few years. With his gorgeous looks, kind heart, and tender disposition, Lamont is the darling of Lavender Shores. He’s the guy everyone wants to be their best friend, the guy everyone wants to protect. But even with his success and the love of his family, Lamont feels hidden from those around him. Maybe the first step is attending a writing conference and revealing the man behind his pen name....

Tyler Dixon survives off his beauty and charm. From cover model to runway fashion to weekend arm candy, Tyler’s prices aren’t cheap. While his appearance is taking him places, his life as an artist has little more than flatlined. When an author hires him to appear as the face of her brand, Tyler thinks it’s just one more job. Little does he know another writer is going to steal all of his attention.

Escaping the conference to find some breathing room, Lamont runs into Tyler at a bar. Casual conversation leads to Lamont revealing his family’s obsession with helping him find love. It’s not a big deal to Tyler, who has played the role of boyfriend for other people in the past. Before either of them can rethink the situation, Tyler is in Lavender Shores meeting Lamont’s family. Though they’re only pretending to be in a relationship, the chemistry that ignites between them is anything but imaginary….

Available at Amazon.

Review by Gloria Lakritz

I love this series that Ms. Abel has written. The setting is so pretty, if I wasn’t a city girl, I might want to live there. The Bluffs, the water, the beaches, the Lavender as a back drop make it so scenic.

Our stories have revolved around the children of the ‘older generation’,   who call themselves the  Founding Families.. We have met the quiet, handsome, introverted Lamont Price who is an author, doing very well for the last 10 years at his craft. He writes Romance Novels under a female nom de plume of Ginger Peach. This Book Conference he will attend with his agent,  is for him to ‘come out’ to the book world and show his fans he is a man.

At the next table, another author has a male model ‘strutting his stuff ‘sans shirt . This gorgeous hunk is also pictured on her new release’s book cover. No one could miss this sexy man, Lamont included. They do make eye contact……….

Needing to get away after his  many fans Q&A  after Lamont’s Big Announcement,  Lamont sees the model also walking into the quiet bar e has found….again the eye contact…… Enter Tyler Dixon.

Tyler has done more than model as we start to see, and I worried about this pairing. Lamont has not been around much and although this starts as just a date for a  family baby shower with a pretend boyfriend I worried for Lamont. As we got deeper into Lamont, and saw the baggage he carried I worried more. This could go so bad……and it almost did….

Thank you Rosalind for another fun story, in your enchanting place Lavendar Shores!
