In the year 1905, in the wilds of Alaska, half native Indian and half white trapper Adam Lowell spends a moon lit night hunting for the animals whose furs fetch a good price in the nearby settlement. On this night Adam meets his destiny in the form of a skin walker or werewolf who recognizes Adam’s spirit as one meant for a very special gift. Adam will be the Alpha and lead his people through the ages. Someday he will be blessed with a mate who will walk by his side, but Adam must be patient for it will not be anytime soon.
Today, Alaska is growing by leaps and bounds though there are still large tracts of uncivilized, underdeveloped land. A tragedy in the past leads Dr. Greg Pierce to establish a small medical clinic in Nekenana so there is at least some form of health care in this remote area. For his own reasons Dr. Connor Jacy agreed to join Pierce’s clinic about five months ago. The two doctors became lovers very quickly though it is more along the lines of physical release without words of commitment between them.
It is on a moonlit night much like one long ago that Connor ends up in the arms of a bronze skinned Adonis who goes by the name of Adam. Connor recognizes a kindred spirit in Adam on an evening filled with strange native music and what Connor believes are major hallucinations. Somehow Connor needs to simply accept what will come to pass, what must happen for the two men to become one, together forever.
Passionate raw sensuality and an indelible story of fated mates, Out There in the Night stays with you long after the last page is done. Author Laura Baumbach brings her characters alive with incredible skill and style. This setting blends perfectly with native mythology and legends. Seamless dialogue, undeniable eroticism, and memorable characters make Out There in the Night a story you will want to read again and again. I Joyfully recommend Out There in the Night. This one is definitely a keeper.
