Jack Brighton and Lawson Gale have been together for six months and are very much in love. Lawson’s work ensuring the survival of the Tillman Copper is as demanding as ever, and Jack’s work with the regeneration of the bushfire-ravaged national park is just as hectic.

When Jack suggests they take a short trip, Lawson agrees. But then he is offered a two-week research position in tropical Queensland to help determine why the Ulysses butterfly is on the decline. Figuring they could combine work and pleasure, Jack and Lawson go on their first vacation together.

Working alongside renowned professor Piers Bonfils isn’t easy. But personal and professional differences aside, Lawson is offered a more permanent role in Queensland. Torn between his new life in Tasmania with Jack and a dying species of butterfly he feels compelled to save, Lawson has to decide where his fate lies.

But fate changes the rules. On a research expedition into the depths of the rainforest, suddenly it’s not only the butterflies’ existence that hangs in the balance.

A butterfly’s life cycle never changes. From larvae to imago, their course is plotted by design. Jack and Lawson need to determine where they stand, if they live through it. Because the only thing more incredible than one imago is two.

He made those butterflies in my belly take flight and dance on every nerve ending.

Imagines is a lovely addition to the Imago series, giving readers another sweet, fun, and lighthearted romance story. The steady pace and well developed characters make this a quick and easy read, which is highlighted by the adorable romance between the two main characters.

N.R. Walker’s writing is great and it delivers so much joy and goodness in this short little novella. The dual POVs are smooth and flow very well from one character to another, especially as we see them grow into themselves and their relationship. And, as always, the unique representation of butterflies continues to be an intriguing part of the story.

This series is such a good. It’s fluffy and funny and fun, but still with an added sprinkle of angst thrown in to balance it all out. Jack and Lawson are as sweet as ever, but this time with a bonus of seeing their relationship progress and develop. There are a lot of sweet moments between the two, as well as quite a few steamy scenes.

Lawson’s work with butterflies still influences the majority of the plot. It is interesting, but a few of the more technical bits can be a bit difficult to get through. The way Walker relates the butterflies to Lawson and Jack’s lives and relationship serves as a good metaphor, though.

Overall, Imagines is just as sweet as I’d hoped it would be. With an ending that’s bound to give readers butterflies, I definitely recommend this to all Romance fans!
