A Change of Scenery
Change job: check. Move to new city: check. Meet a guy who makes you think about getting hot under the covers as soon as you arrive: uh, wait just a sec.

Con Danvers leaves big-city Chicago for small-city Warm Springs, West Virginia. On his first day in town, he meets Stephen Rydell. While feeling a strange, compelling attraction for the other man, Con is most definitely in denial. He’s not gay. He doesn’t want to want another man. That way leads to trouble, as Con well knows.

Stephen, meanwhile, is comfortable with who he is and is quite happy running his garden shop. He knows he and Con could be the real deal – but it takes two to get this gig going.

Con is a stubborn Yankee who’s had just about all the change he needs in his life, thank you very much. Stephen is a determined Southern Gentleman who knows exactly what he wants. Who’s going to come out on top?

A Change of Pace
Andrew Cunningham is ticked off. He’s taken the fall for his old boss, the mayor of Chicago, and is forced to head to Asheville, North Carolina to avoid the press who’re hounding him. He’s so not in the mood to be nice. Once he meets sexy cabinet-maker Ridge Huntington, though, he unbends enough to get up close and personal.

Ridge isn’t sure that Mr. Right Now is worth the aggravation. They argue, Drew curses a lot, and Ridge rolls his eyes. But while Drew manages to step on a few toes as he adjusts to life in the south, Ridge finds himself entertained in more ways than one.

Can an uppity Yankee and a laid-back Southerner meet in the middle?

Note: The stories in this omnibus were previously published as standalone titles, and have been substantially revised and re-edited for this release.

My View:

A Change of … is two romances in one book – A Change of Scenery and A Change of Pace. Both of these stories involve a man in dire need of a change making a move from their hectic life in Chicago to the slower paced South. As a southern girl who happens to be native of an area near the setting of these stories, I just love that JM Cartwright’s southerners are interesting and real, and that they don’t include the stereotypes that often accompany southern characters. This makes me happy!

Both of these stories are romances, with the only angst consisting of whether the two men in the respective relationships will manage to wade through their internal issues to find their happily ever after. The characters in these stories are very well written, and Cartwright has a unique ability to create characters who have remarkable emotional and sexual chemistry. Both couples – Stephen and Con, and Ridge and Drew – have off the charts sexual energy that translates into some of the hottest sex scenes that I have read in quite a while.

If you are a fan of romance and lovely happily ever after stories, you will adore JM Cartwright’s A Change of… I recommend the two sweet and sexy stories in this book … they are the perfect way to spend a lazy a few hours of pleasurable reading!
