After finishing college, Luke returned home to help his brother on the family ranch. While helping with a delivery, Luke comes upon his mate. The problem is that neither man is gay.

Lavinia Lewis is a new author for me and I am always a little leery when trying someone new. I am glad, however, that I decided to give this author a try.

Luke’s Surprise is the first book in her new series Shifter’s Haven. Luke's brother, and pack Alpha, has kept him busy and this latest chore brings him face-to-face with his mate, who just happens to be another man. The attraction between the two men was instantaneous and intense. Unlike recent shifter stories, Ms. Lewis’ werewolves can chose to separate from their mates so when Mark suggests that ignoring the desire to mate would be for the best, Luke walks away. The author was able to portray the devastation that Luke was feeling at that time so well that I wanted to smack Mark for hurting the younger man. Not only do the men have to struggle with the issues of starting a new relationship, but the author also throws in some added angst when she introduces an obsessive werewolf into the mix. There are many tense moments in this entertaining story that will have the reader holding their breath as a result.

With at least two more stories to come, it is easy to see that Ms. Lewis is sure to earn many new fans with her Shifter’s Haven series.
