It is early winter in Lavender Shores.
Lamont Price, a founding family member of Lavender Shores is reluctantly attending a romance-fiction convention. As this was the first personal appearance for the successful romance writer, his agent planned to proudly announce that bestselling author Ginger Peach is Lamont Price. Anticipating that this announcement will either shatter the illusion of their favorite author and kill his career or attract many new readers, Lamont would gladly be anywhere else.
Lamont is shy, overly nice, nervous, and lonely. Second guessing every step, he is content to stay at home writing his immensely successful novels. Though he is immensely loving, and supportive of extended family. Robert, his wonderfully, exuberant father is on a tireless quest to find the perfect lover for his unattached forty-five-year-old son. Relationships have proved so disastrous that Lamont has avoided them for seven years.
As Lamont is stealthy trying to leave the convention before his gender reveal is announced to waiting fans he is pulled away by the audience screaming for the cover model featured on a rival’s books. Mesmerized by the gorgeous man dancing, stripping and captivating the audience, Lamont and the model make eye contact.
Hours later when Lamont is finally able to escape the crowds after answering questions, signing autographs, and posing for selfies, he finds himself in a nearby conversation about surviving these conferences. Tyler Dixon introduces himself, mentioning that his working name is Tate Dallas. After an exasperating phone text from his father, regarding this weekend’s baby shower to announce the gender of the first grandchild. Lamont confesses that his father has a ‘surprise for him’ meaning that Robert is trying yet again to set him up with a date. Tyler senses Lamont’s frustration and offers to act as a pretend boy-friend for the shower. Lamont is surprised that Tyler would agree to the charade for a fee, although he is assured that Tyler often acts as a boyfriend for the weekend. Tyler is amazed that Lamont who looks ‘hot as hell’ and interesting is single. Spending a few days in Lavender Shores near the Point Reyes National Seashore would allow him to be Tyler Dixon photographer. Spending time with the nervous and attractive author is a plus and perhaps there might be an alternative to staying in Lamont’s guest room.
Rosalind begins to carefully construct a scenario of Lamont’s family falling in love with Tyler, believing Lamont has at last found a stunning and affectionate boyfriend. Tyler is enthusiastically welcomed into the family. Throughout the book we are treated to conversations and interactions with friends from previous stories. Tyler finds that this unconventional family is warm and charming and he plays his part well. There is an amazing amount of chemistry and appreciation of nature’s beauty between the two as well as a burgeoning physical attraction. The few days they spend together becomes ‘pretending to be real boyfriends’ and not simply for show. Lamont shows Tyler the haunting, mystical rugged side of the area and Tyler captures thousands of photographs understanding Lamont’s appreciation for the wild beauty. The days before Tyler leaves to join his own parents for Christmas become thick with emotion. For two people not looking for a relationship
both Lamont and Tyler wonder how can feelings become so strong so quickly?
THE SHIPWRECK, this newest addition to the Lavender Shores series is easily a favorite as Lamont is sweet and so insecure and Tyler is in awe of Lamont’s generosity, humor, and caring plus of course, the incredible handsome sexiness that Lamont doesn’t see.
WELCOME TYLER DIXON to the Lavender Shores family!!
Every time I read a Lavender Shores novel, there's a place where I wonder if this is going to be the story where I'm let down. The author does such a good job dragging my emotions over the rough road of disappointment and despair that I get to a point where I think, how are we going to get to a happy ending. I know that's the point, that we're going to end this story happily...or will we? This author is a master at making me feel the emotions of the characters, so that I'm choked up when at the goodbye and disappointed by the lack of contact, and I'm unsure that it can all be okay. That is the mark of an excellent author, and what keeps me coming back for more.
This was another brilliant installment in the Lavender Shores series, and I'm waiting breathlessly for the next book.

Lamont has had his heart broken a few times so is no hurry to get into another relationship but Tyler’s care and attention go along way to fix it. Unfortunately Tyler’s secret could really mean the end of them before they have really begun
