Le Jardin de la Lumiere

(Publisher’s blurb) “A successful young artist, Ryan Esson lost everything in the blink of an eye, including his ability to create. Courtesy of an anonymous benefactor, he’s given an opportunity to reclaim something he thought lost forever when he receives a mysterious invitation to a weekend artist's retreat at a pre-Civil War sugar plantation.
 
Built on a secluded string of islands off the Gulf Coast of Louisiana, Le Jardin de la Lumière is a place of intrigue, a haunting legend, and one beautiful stranger, who will mesmerize Ryan. In a stranger’s eyes, will he find the strength to open his mind and his heart again?”

I found this work to be touching and heartwarming as well as heart rending at times. We’ve all been in a similar position, as Ryan is in. We’ve all had our hearts broken so badly we aren’t sure we can ever trust again. And we all have to figure out how to move on and get over the hurt and let others past the walls we put up to protect ourselves.

Ms. Fox addresses all those issues with care and compassion and a new twist on Greek mythology. The characters are flawed and imperfect and fully loveable. The plot is great and keeps you reading till you get to the happily ever after. I look forward to reading more of Ms. Fox’s work and I think you will too.
 
Special Notes: This is an erotic novella that contains male/male sexual interaction, some that is very detailed, and should not be read by those who have objections to such situations.
