A lake monster in heat, a lost human in the woods, and the lie that gets her stuffed…
Getting lost in the woods was not the adventure Amy had in mind when she jumped at the chance to search for the local lake monster. She just wanted to liven up her steady but boring life, not wonder if every shadow on the ground is a snake and worry that no one will ever find her.
Luckily, someone does find her.
Unexpectedly, that person isn't human.
Wildly, he seems to think that she's his date.
Adrian faces what could be his last heat. As his temperature rises and his biological clock ticks, his only hope is that the witch being sent by a famous matchmaker will be as compatible as he dreams.
Can he convince his date to not only provide relief during his heat but also carry his eggs?
Found by the Lake Monster takes place in the same world as Stalked by the Kraken and includes breeding, knotting, and oviposition.
I’M OFFICIALLY OBSESSED!!
*I received an ebook ARC from the author. All opinions are my own.*
Oh… my… sweet… goodness… The absolute CHARM of this book! It hit me like a bat and I was in an absolute chokehold. I made the mistake of starting it one evening right before bed and I genuinely had to peel myself away from it to go to bed. Needless to say, I absolutely devoured it the very next day.
When you start, you’re not going to want to stop.
Amy is a human accountant, wrangled into an evening of monster hunting at the local lake.
Adrian is a monster accountant (an aquatic nix, in particular) who has requested a match through the Love Bathhouse to help him get through his current heat cycle.
Let’s just say, Adrian’s date never gets there, and Amy is all too willing to step into her place.
I’m legit still not over how much I loved this book. Deceived by the Gargoyles has held the spot for my fave monster romance this year and Found by the Lake Monster is honestly neck and neck. Amy and Adrian have such incredibly sweet chemistry together, and I could read a whole series based on them alone. (If you’ve read Sweat & Soap, they kind of have the same kind of addictively sweet chemistry that is so fun to read!)
Do not even get me started on the sexy times because my gosh are they hot. We are pro-lube in this house and there is literally no such thing as too much lube. Apparently Lillian Lark agrees with me because hot damn were the smutty scenes good!
With this adorable, sweet, hot, oh so sexy, oh so CHARMING release, Lillian Lark has solidified her place as my favourite monster romance author.
Please excuse me while I go flail and clutch this book with my greedy little hands. Gosh, I love this series so much!!

Short, sweet and lots of heat!
ARC provided by author for review. Lillian Lark always manages to pack tons of heat and sweet moments into her books and this novella is no different. This can fully be read as a stand-alone, as references to other characters in her series are limited. As it’s novella, you don’t get as deep of a backstory or into the character’s psyche as you would typically find in one of her novels, but Amy and Adrian’s story is 100% worth reading!
