Characters: Charlie Sutton, Travis Craig, Jack Brighton, Lawson Gale
Blurb: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.
Red Dirt Imago is our cutesie little return to the very much beloved Red Dirt Heart Series and this time, with Lawson and Jack from the author’s Imago series (or the other way around).
Reading about Charlie and Travis again makes me a bit melancholic because I absolutely loved their story and the timeline of this story is in the past since we all know that their daughter grew up to be a beautiful strong-willed woman.
I can absolutely relate with both Lawson and Travis here. No matter how mature we think we are in these situations – meeting your former lover and their current lover – though in this instance, former sex buddies, there’s still a tinge of something that will make us feel a bit jealous I guess…I think that’s what makes us human. That’s what’s make Lawson and Travis more realistic in a way.
This is a cutesie little gift from the author for the fans of both series and that super cute surprise at the end is just too adorbs! This is highly recommended for those who are missing Travis and Charlie!

About The Author
N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance.
She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
She is many things; a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who live in her head, who don’t let her sleep at night unless she gives them life with words.
She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things…but likes it even more when they fall in love.
She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.
She’s been writing ever since…
