Etienne LeFevre knew his greedy brothers would rather see him dead and unable to claim his birthright, so he left his warm home to take shelter in a ramshackle cottage. With the company of a stray cat and his lute, he tries to make due even though he is cold, exhausted and hungry. The arrival of a stranger provided more than a helping hand to stoke the fire in the hearth. The man ignited the desire in Etienne’s heart. Cursed for decades, Jacques has lost most of his compassion. He lives as a predator and sees young sweet-natured Etienne as prey. Soon, Jacques will discover Etienne is more than just a willing bedfellow who needs protecting for his own good.

Selah March writes of love, betrayal, forgiveness and personal-growth in Year of the Cat. Etienne has lived in his books and has no “street smarts”. Jacques has lived, done what he must to survive and has no qualms taking necessary risks. From the moment they met, Jacques felt something for the younger man that he wasn’t ready to identify. There were moments where I wanted to hit Jacques with a skillet, but I had to remember this was Etienne’s adventure; his time to learn and grow. There were hard lessons and sacrifices made by both men, but love is a powerful tool. This is definitely a story you don’t want to miss.
