It turns out that trying to decide how to placate Gina is the least of his worries…it seems that the spearmint he keeps smelling is the scent from Garret the new wiz kid that his brother has hired to work for them.

Garret Renquist is the new Chief Investment Officer for Antaeus International. Not one to enjoy upheaval in his life, he keeps wondering why he first agreed to go to work for Stone Mortuary Services and then takes a job with Antaeus International a short time later. Yet, when he finds himself in the same room with Holden and notices so many signs that can only mean one thing…he understands why he has done these things. Holden is his intended mate! Can he convince the very straight Holden that he has a male mate, or will they both spend the rest of their lives miserable because their intended mating was unfulfilled?
Lex Valentine is an author that deserves more recognition than she gets. Fire Season is book 3 of her Tales of the Darkworld series and her first M/M book. The first two books were good…this book is even better. Not released in chronological order, each book can be read independently of each other. It’s full of heart and with enough going on to keep you totally enthralled from start to finish. She is definitely someone that you should pick up and read. I know you will not be disappointed in her world…I never am.
