Cayuga Cougars Series
The past few years have been a bit chaotic for Cougars new associate coach, Lancaster Hart. After an amiable divorce he began living his life as the gay man he’d kept closeted for far too long. With the recent move to Cayuga, he’s away from his support system and properly made sweet tea. Despite a roster filled with new friends and associates, he’s spending his nights alone.
As his team gears up to make a run at the Calder Cup, Lancaster discovers that not everything in upstate New York is wine, woodlands, and chilly conservative ideals. At a summer music festival, he first lays eyes on Townsend Harris, folksy/blues singer by night and mayoral office assistant by day. Lancaster is enraptured with the man’s powerful sultry voice. Also, Town just might be the most beautiful man he has seen in all his forty-one years.
The two hit it off at an informal meet and greet after the show, where they spend the night talking and sipping wine. One evening of conversation and an incendiary goodbye kiss leads them into a scorching love affair that might be exactly what Lancaster has been searching for his whole life. Can his team pull off professionally what he’s hoping to do privately as well? Or will capturing their dream evade both the Cougars and Lancaster?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Here we have Lancaster and Townsend’s story in book 5 of the Cayuga Cougar series. I got such a warm feeling reading this one, the way that they came together just seemed so natural and sweet; nothing was forced, and I adored Townsend’s patience and quiet support as Lancaster found his footing in the relationship as it was still all relatively new to him – forty-one years old and been married with children before being brave enough to tentatively test the waters with another man. He and Town just seemed to fit so well together and were both just as smitten as each other. It was quite a grown-up union, I think they both were at an age and at a time in their life where they just wanted that someone to share their life with quiet times eating good food and drinking their favourite wine and just finding comfort and bliss in each other; that’s not to say their intimate moments weren’t full of heat and anticipation―they were, but it was in such a natural way how they revered and cherished each other. The hockey action is still as fast-paced and full of the drama we’ve been accustomed to and we catch up with all gang; Mario and Lila and the man of my heart; a certain Mr. Kalinski, who all have starring parts which pleases me no end. This was a great ending and certainly on par with the rest of the series. There’s nothing not to love here, this story had everything and if you enjoyed the series so far, you won’t be disappointed.

V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, Dr. Who, Torchwood, walking, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, two Jersey steers and a flock of assorted domestic fowl.
When not writing lusty tales, she can be found enjoying her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in hand.
