Forever is too long to be alone.
Professor Avery Cook has spent his career researching the mysterious side of New Orleans. Superstitions, legends, and lore—Avery has an academic explanation for all of them….
Until one night when he walks into a bar and his life changes.
In a sea of impossibly beautiful people, Tyson stands out, and he sweeps Avery off his feet with his old-world charm and romanticism. But there’s a darkness in Tyson too, and Avery discovers Tyson is part of a world he thought existed only in books and stories—the paranormal tales he studies at the university.
Tyson’s been lonely for a long time, and he’s falling in love with Avery. But his past is a long one, and it’s full of enemies and danger. The best way to keep Avery safe is to push him away….
I loved the “magic” in this and the interesting twist on an old tale. The setting – New Orleans – fits the story oh so well. I loved the professor as the “younger” MC in this scenario!
I wasn’t super compelled by the dilemma and I was a bit confused by the stumbling blocks but thought the romance was sweet and the paranormal aspect interesting.
I would definitely read more from this “world”.
