When Charlie Sutton’s neighbour Greg is notified by the Queensland government that they intend to run a pipeline through his property, Charlie vows to help him fight it. Then Travis remembers seeing butterflies at the creek near their joining fence line – the same butterflies they couldn’t find in any Australian butterfly book. Hopeful this might be their only chance to stop the development, they seek the help of a specialist.
Lawson Brighton-Gale receives an email request to identify a butterfly in the Outback, only to discover it’s not an Australian butterfly at all. But that’s not all he discovers. The name on the request is familiar to Jack. An old friend from his university days, who also happened to be his old friend with benefits, Charlie Sutton.
Years ago, two out-of-towners met at the University of Sydney. Both studying environmental sciences, both hundreds of miles from home, and both finding their worlds open to new experiences, they fell into bed together. Meeting again after all this time, in front of Lawson and Travis, won’t be awkward at all, right?
Lawson and Jack’s trip to Sutton Station certainly doesn’t go to plan, and what they take back to Tasmania isn’t just butterflies, but a cocoon of possibilities.
A Red Dirt Heart and Imago crossover ~ The story of when red dirt and butterflies collide.
That was the cutest thing I’ve read in ages! Charlie and Travis are in my top 5 couples of all time, and seeing them again is such a kick to the heart. In this installment, they are trying to stop the government from running a pipeline through their neighbor’s land. And the way they might be able to do that – there is a rare butterfly on the property. Enter Lawson Brighton-Gale and his husband, Jack!
My one wish was to have a jealous Travis, what with Charlie and Jack’s history at uni together, and I got it!
The epilogue was just icing on the cake – so much swoon!
