Nate Gills has a few skeletons in his closet that he and his partners must over come for Nate to run for mayor of Cattle Valley.

The Last Bouquet is a very good book. I liked the way it told not only Hearn and Tyler's love story but also cleared up the mystery of Nate's Gills beginning. It's a fabulous read with a lot of hot, steamy, and sexy love scenes. Not only Hearn’s and Tyler but also Nate Rio and Ryan's love for each other. WOW!! It was well worth reading. It’s going on my keeper shelf!
