Seahorse shifter Layton’s been crazy about lynx shifter Corbin since he was ten years old. Now an adult, he’s confused because of his sudden and unexpected attraction to Preston, Corbin’s brother. It’s unsettling to realize he can’t depend on the truth of his own emotions. He’s floundering in new feelings. 

Preston’s known that Layton was his mate for years and it’s been painful watching him pine after Corbin. When desire between them flares bright and hot, it changes their relationship. Weeks later when he learns that Layton is pregnant, Preston’s thrilled but they don’t know what’s behind Layton’s confused feelings. Delving into the mystery of who’s trying to keep them apart and why brings even more questions to light. Can Preston and Layton survive the danger? Can their child? What about their family and friends? 

The Seahorse Who Loved the Wrong Lynx is release number eight in Scarlet Hyacinth’s Mate or Meal series.  Due to the continuing plot line and close relationship of the characters, I recommend the books be read in order.

I enjoyed this story and looked forward to it the first time I read the blurb. I wasn’t disappointed. Putting Layton and Preston together is a good pairing, even if it took work to get to what was keeping them apart. Ms. Hyacinth did a good job with the explanation of who caused it and why…eventually…and I’m happy to say it’s plausible. I’m also pleased she didn’t waste any time making them a couple. The sex between Layton and Preston is sizzling hot and results in…shock…a baby. 

As they search for the reason behind their separation, Ms Hyacinth gives us good details of what’s happening and answering some questions, while leaving others open for the future. She brings in the Sidhe and an unexpected character from a past release as one of the villains (and you’ll be surprised at the identity-spoiler alert). There’s a lot going on--not just with Preston and Layton but numerous friends and family too. Look for new addition, Sidhe Winter. The next book, The Lynx Who Purred for a Sidhe Prince, is coming soon.
