Tara Triannon is no stranger to trouble. She's yet to find an enemy her skill with a sword couldn't dispatch. But how can she fight one that attacks through her dreams?
With her nightmares worsening, Tara seeks answers but finds only more questions. Then her sister, Laraina, reveals a stunning secret that forces Tara to go to the one place Tara's sworn never to return to. Her troubles multiply when Jovan Trevillion, the secretive soldier of fortune who stole her heart, is mentally tortured by an ancient Being intent on bending him to its will. And worst of all, the Butcher — the terrifying wolf-like assassin she thought she'd killed — survived their duel and is hunting her again.
Hounded by enemies, Tara sets out on a harrowing quest to discover the true nature of who she is, to come to grips with the new volatility of her magic, and to defeat the evil locked in a centuries-old trap that will stop at nothing to control her magic and escape through her nightmares.

Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite The adventure of Tara Triannon continues in Trouble by Any Other Name by Lori L. MacLaughlin. The story carries on from where the first book in the series, Lady, Thy Name is Trouble, ended. The evil presence haunting Tara’s dreams and mind is getting stronger, and it seems it’s just a matter of time before it is able to fully engulf Tara in darkness. Tara’s sister, Laraina, decides to tell her a family secret, one that holds a clue to Tara’s hidden past. To find more answers, Tara has to revisit some places that she'd rather not go, where she discovers more truth about the realm’s ancient race, wars, and old gods. It’s a great joy to join Tara and Jovan again in their adventures, as well as meet other memorable characters in the world filled with ancient magic and mysteries. MacLaughlin maintains her clear cut prose and, just like its predecessor, the plot is well written, and has some solid twists for the readers. Tara’s old enemy, the Butcher, is back and new enemies are emerging. Her relationship with Jovan is tested by dangers and an issue of trust. The characters’ development is kept on an upward trend, which is another strong point of the story. All in all, Trouble by Any Other Name is highly enjoyable and engaging. Fans of the series will not be disappointed. It is definitely another commendable work from MacLaughlin. I loved the ending and I look forward to see how the story continues.
"Trouble By Any Other Name" is a perfect sequel to Book 1, "Lady, Thy Name Is Trouble". The moonlit scene on the cover beckons you to follow Tara on her continuing journey to find the answer to her quest. Its forty-one chapters are filled with action, excitement, humor and romance. This book is even more spell-binding than the first. It keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. The author has a knack for writing descriptions of people, places and things that brings every scene to life and makes you feel like you're there. The companions who accompany Tara on her journey become very real, each adding their own individual personality. The ending ties everything together from both books, and yet leaves the door open to what the future might hold. Books 1 and 2 would make fantastic movies!
