Erotic Romance, LGBTQ
Trying to build a new life for herself, Rienne moves to Oracle Island to be closer to her cousin Cass. But the island isn't anything like she thought it would be; the residents are suspicious and Rienne is drawing more attention from the local bachelors than she knows what to do with. Just healing from a bad relationship, she isn't sure she wants to date anyone at all, let alone all four men who all seem to be vying for her attention. Even more confusing is that two of them seem more interested in each other than in her!
Foxglove is drawn to the sad-eyed woman the moment he sees her. With so much competition he worries he doesn't have a chance. But a few shy smiles and stolen dances convince him that, perhaps, this time he won't just fade into the background.
Lonely after generations of guarding his people, Shiloh finds a sense of home and comfort in Rienne. The more time he spends with her the more he wants her. Now if he can just convince her being with him doesn't mean giving up Foxglove.

A queen bee who entices males to lick her honey pot and pollinate her is the saviour of a magical island. Ms. Boese is a new-to-me author who is a must read. Her storytelling is completely captivating. I am spellbound by her characters and the world she invites us in.
Rienne is a shifter from a family of unusual shifters. Outsiders do not know exactly what kind of animals they are because it isn't hereditary. They can be any type of animal or insect. Rienne is hiding from the world as her self-confidence has been shattered by an abusive, jealous and selfish ex-lover. Trying to recover, she flees to her cousin, Cass, who lives on an island. The reception Rienne receives from the residents is colder than a winter day. Fortunately, a couple of males decided to welcome her in a very friendly way.
This story is magical. There is no other word for it. I loved each of the characters in this book. They all had their own stories and Ms. Boese does a great job of giving enough highlights to weave a dark picture of hopelessness. Light shines when Rienne enters this slowly dying community. All the little hints dropped here and there culminate into a wonderful happy ending.
I want to gush about all the little nuances I loved in this story, but I don't want to give any spoilers. The different magical creatures in this story are adorable. The shifters in this story are hilarious. The men are dreamy and the women are horny.
Ms. Boese does a great job of infusing humour and sex into this book. What more can a woman want? Great sex with multiple men is a good start. And a man who can make a woman laugh is to be treasured. The men who surround Rienne boost her self-worth and it's a delight to watch.
The sex in this story is smoking hawt. Don't be surprised if it causes a bit of panty moistening goodness. This secret garden romance is highly recommended to those who love happily ever afters.
