Battered and bruised, Peter Graham is desperate to find a safe haven to stay, just until he can find a job and be his own man again.  Peter travels back to St. Jerome, Louisiana and his search for his friend Ted who now lives there, leads Peter to Deputy Billy Trosclair.  The moment Peter and Billy meet, the mating sparks begin to fly.  It takes all of the willpower Billy can summon to stop his wolf from claiming Peter right there in the Sheriff’s office. 

 Bayou's End is the second book in the Rougaroux Social Club Series.  This well written romance captivated me from the first sentence to the very last word.  The plot illustrates all the emotional qualities, featuring the strife of being a gay werewolf in a homophobic pack, as well as a werewolf hiding in plain sight.  The realistic characters immersed me into images of a laid back way of life coupled with exceptionally amusing “southern charm” dialog.  The plot also initiates feelings of anger, a few tears along with the desire to hug Peter.   

Although Peter is the victim of pack rejection because he is gay plus he is considered merely as a boy toy, which resulted in date rape set up by his last lover, Peter still has an incredibly sensual nature.  Peter’s small wolf is the perfect mate for Billy’s strong take charge wolf.  The intimate scenes in wolf form are especially breathtaking, expressing a true wolf’s nature.   

I suggest reading Bayou Dreams first to totally savor the pleasures found in Bayou's End. Lynn Lorenz has created a magnificent saga that I recommend to all fans of gay shape-shifter fiction.
