Lover at Last marks the first book in the series with a Male/Male pairing and does a fairly good job at it. It also does a great job at interspersing other sideline stories in and introducing us to some new characters, and changing the course of lives, particularly Trez's. I for one was happy because Vishous appeared on a fairly regular basis, though Jane did not. As usual, a great outing for Ward. This wasn’t my favorite book in the series, but a keeper for sure!
