Nerdy, introverted genius lepidopterist, Lawson Gale, is an expert on butterflies. He finds himself in a small town in Tasmania on a quest from an old professor to find an elusive species that may or may not even exist.
Local Parks and Wildlife officer, Jack Brighton, is an ordinary guy who loves his life in the sleepy town of Scottsdale. Along with his Border collie dog, Rosemary, his job, and good friends, he has enough to keep from being lonely.
But then he meets Lawson, and he knows he’s met someone special. There’s more to catching butterflies, Jack realises. Sometimes the most elusive creatures wear bow ties, and sometimes they can’t be caught at all.
Lawson soon learns there are butterflies he can’t learn about it in books. They exist only in a touch, in a kiss, in a smile. He just has to let go first, so these butterflies can fly.
Imago is the story of finding love, bow ties, and butterflies.

My View:

If you’ve been looking for a clever, low angst romance to satisfy your bookish sweet tooth…look no further. Imago is the perfectly charming story of Lawson – who’s basically perfect – and Jack, whose endless charms are surpassed only by those of his own dog (LOL). I enjoyed the Australian setting, and the casual dialogue made the cheesiness factor more palatable. There is one perplexing line where Lawson uses the word “eunuch” when he definitely means “prude,” but it’s such a small thing I’m really only mentioning it for curiosity’s sake. I happily anticipate reading the second title in this new series when Ms. Walker releases it next month.
