Summary

Alison Barnard's A Walk in the Rain is the story of two women who meet when each is on the brink of world-wide fame and trying not to face her dissatisfaction with the life she has made for herself. It is a love story, but it is also about a journey to self-acceptance. By the end of it, both major characters have to challenge assumptions and prejudices in society and in themselves. 

Actress Shara travels and lives with Jessa while researching her new role - that of Jessa Hanson - in the film about the conductor's life, and they fall in love. Shara's boyfriend Derek intervenes, helped by Shara's belief that she has caught Jessa in a compromising position with a former lover. They separate. "Maestra" is filmed and Jessa records a musical poem that is a tribute to the love she has lost. When Shara hears that musical piece, goes to see her. They consummate their relationship, but is Shara ready for the kind of publicity a lesbian relationship will attract?

    Roy never thought that one party with his hot new neighbours would turn his whole life upside down! 
     
     
    Party at the Lunar Pack (Lunar Pack #1) 
     
    Roy's life exists of work, dinner and sleep, boring. His friends are getting married, or having kids, and he sits home alone, too focused on his job to have much of a social life, let alone a love life. 
     
    Then he finds a letter on the doormat, an invitation to a housewarming party next door. There he meets Clyde and Sam, they seem interested in him as more than just neighbours, and definitely ready to explore if that interest is mutual. 
     
    But why does he feel like there is more going on between the three of them? And why are Clyde and Sam acting all weird the next morning? 
     
    A 8500 word long story about a man who realises that behind his neighbours' hot looks, is a whole world he didn't know about. 
     
    Mated by the Lunar Pack (Lunar Pack #2) 
     
    Clyde hurts when his pack hurts, when his lover hurts, but is this dark pain proof of something more, something deeper? 
     
    Clyde is the Alpha of the Lunar pack, the leader, the one in charge. But when his lover, Sam, turns their sexy next door neighbour, Roy, into one of them during a hot night of passion, he has trouble keeping everything together. 
    After finding out about the turn, three weeks ago, Roy has been refusing to have any contact with them. In turn Sam has become restless, moody and racked with guild. It pains him to see the heartbreak his lover is going through and he decides this can't go on any longer. 
     
    To make matters worse, the moon will be full in three more days, and unless he doesn't do something soon, Roy will go through his first shift as a werewolf alone. No matter their unusual circumstances, he can't let that happen. 
     
    Will he be able to finally reach Roy and explain to him why Sam did what he did? And, more importantly, will Roy understand the repercussions of Sam's mistake?

    When he hears what happened between Sam and Roy and why Clyde won't be joining them that evening, he is furious. At the same time, it also emphasises how he is still alone. 
    It's the evening of the full moon, the first full moon for Roy. Tonight will tell if he really is mated to Clyde and Sam. If he can get over the hurdle of his first change, that is. 
     
    Felix isn't happy that his friends didn't tell him what was going on, but that doesn't stop him from helping a new werewolf change for the first time.
