Publisher's Summary

When Miller Hobbs finds himself on a winter vacation in Colorado with the giant, exceedingly loud, Marian and Wilde families, he doesn’t quite know what to do with himself. He’s not really a Marian or a Wilde despite having DNA ties to both.

So every morning before the rest of the family wakes up and fills Rockley Lodge with holiday merriment (and noise), he escapes to the quaint downtown of Aster Valley where he spies a man through the bakery window kneading dough and dancing to music only he can hear. Miller is entranced by the dancing baker, and when Darius looks up and catches Miller staring, the interest suddenly goes both ways.

Can two strangers find love among the quaint chaos of an Aster Valley Christmas? Even if it includes the two most overwhelming and meddling families vying for the title of greatest matchmakers of all time?

A crossover for all times

Forever Wilde in Aster Valley, by Lucy Lennox, is a crossover for all times that brings individuals from Lucy Lennox’s Made Marian and Forever Wilde series together at the Rockley Lodge in Aster Valley, Colorado (her ongoing series) for the holidays. Since Forever Wilde in Aster Valley’s focus is on a new family member, it can be read as a standalone as the author states in her note to the readers. But I feel if you haven’t followed these series, you will miss some of the subtle nuances.

Michael Dean has narrated all of the Made Marian, Forever Wilde and Aster Valley novels, so there is a lot of continuity with the portrayal of characters’ personalities. His narration is always a treat, giving a confident and astounding voice to the individuals. Maybe this is the result of his long-time connection to these characters, but it could also be pure talent on his part. His articulation of the individuals captures each scene, resounding with all the joy, love, anger and tension due at that moment.

Forever Wilde in Aster Valley is Miller Hobbs’ story. Miller was introduced in His Saint, Saint and Augie’s story, and then again at the end of Wilde Love, where the Marian and Wilde families are connected. These are books 5 and 6 in the Forever Wilde series… so how does Aster Valley fit the picture? Well, it starts right here and now as the location for a large, loud and overwhelming Marion/Wilde Aster Valley Christmas. While Miller has ties to both the Marian’s and the Wilde’s, he doesn’t yet feel he belongs and is deeply mourning the loss of his mother.

Miller is both happy and sad that he was included in the Marion/Wilde holiday celebration and at the same time is overwhelmed by the enormity of his new family. Miller meets the tatted, gorgeous Greek god, Darius Grant (briefly introduced in Hot as Heller Aster Valley book 3 as the new bakery owner in town), on a run to pick up treats from Darious’ bakery, Honey’s. Miller is smitten and unbeknownst to Miller, the feeling is mutual and will soon shape his future. To escape the family ruckus, Miller visits Honey’s multiple times after that first encounter, spending time with Darius for the comfort he finds in his presence.

As we have come to expect with Lucy Lennox’s writing, Forever Wilde in Aster Valley is chock full with sexual innuendo, elders who push the limits of the law, a freakishly scary, yet adorable snowman and an abundance of good intentions. But front and center is the budding relationship between Miller and Darius. With so much going on, their path to happiness could have been overshadowed, but with brilliant finesse, they take center stage in an outstanding holiday romance.

I totally fell in love with Darius and his utter honesty, that is anything but abrasive. He is kind, attentive and doesn’t have a manipulative bone in his body. From the start, he is infatuated with Miller giving him the space he needs to work through his issues while providing unconditional support. It is through the subtle distractions and gentle guidance Darius provides that his feelings for Miller reveal themselves.

At the same time, my heart goes out to Miller, suffering from and blinded by the staggering loss of his mother for the first holiday season. He wants nothing more than to become part of the Marion/Wilde clan, but heartbreak over the initial rejection from his grandmother, Tilly Marion, is holding him back. As with most things, a serious and heartfelt discussion with Tilly has the effect of putting things into perspective. In contrast, Miller wears his attraction for Darius on his sleeve, but feels undeserving of such happiness.

By the end of Forever Wilde in Aster Valley there is a new resident and power couple with Miller and Darius. Miller seamlessly integrates into life in Aster Valley, his confidence is back and the love that radiates off the new couple is hypnotizing. The holiday season is a time for miracles and this holiday Miller and Darius receive the greatest gift of all… true love!

Great to get the whole gang together again!

I just love that this a new story but all the same characters make appearances. This book is about family and found family, both are very important. This particular book sure makes a person think about their life priorities and makes very good points! Yep

Banter Supreme

Been struggling reading through the mm romance available until I stumbled on Lucy Lennox Series. Funny item I live in the DFW area and wish there was an area like Hobie, Texas. The character and scene development in each book blossom when the introduction of others in family join the conversations. Be ready to laugh cry and have to put the book down to come down a racing heart. kudos great book

A Great Continuation of the Saga!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this lovely revisiting of the vast Wilde/Marion clan, and a sweet introduction to two of the newest members of this extended tribe. Sweet, sexy, and hilariously irreverent, the members have only gotten better (& more numerous!) with age!

Michael Dean worked his magic narrating this beautiful story, so touching, sexy, and full of life from start to finish!! A perfect Christmas addition.

So much love for this book!!!

I love, love, love this book! Lucy Lennox is one of my favorite authors, and having a lot of her characters in one book is so much fun!!! This story has Miller and Darius getting their much wanted HEA. Both are super sweet men, and I enjoy seeing them navigate new family and friends. I would definitely read Lucy's other series before this book so you have a full appreciation of all the different characters!
