It turns out that being an award winning actor of screen and stage doesn’t hold a candle to nude pictures on the net and being ‘outed’ by an ex-lover.  Donovan ‘Van’ Mackenzie has learned this lesson the hard way, which is why he’s most likely taking the lead role at the Globe in the Grove, far from Broadway and reporters.

A promising career behind the scenes on Broadway is put on hold when his mother dies and his father goes to pieces.  Shane Hollister returns to St. Charles and a job at the Globe in the Grove as an assistant and set designer.

The moment Van spotted Shane at a meeting set up to lure Van to the theatre he knows he’s in trouble.  The chemistry between them is explosive, but what about the age difference and Shane’s family responsibilities?  Then there’s Van’s ex-lover who may or may not consider things over.  It would be simpler to go their separate ways, but then again, nobody ever said that love was easy.

Go ahead and Shine a Light on this sensual and satisfying page turner.  Well written, intriguing characters are the focus.  Van is picking up the pieces, stumbling, in shock from a betrayal he never saw coming and Shane, tender and strong, is the perfect match for Van.  Well paced, with solid secondary characters and the setting is nicely detailed as well.  Shine a Light has steamy moments – hot enough to fog your glasses - and characters you will care about.  Seriously entertaining and totally engaging.
