Review: Short, Sexy and Steamy. My three favorite colors!! Jessie Rohen is travelling in a thunderstorm to see his best friend when he literally runs into a while wolf. The piercing blue eyes seem to penetrate his very soul. When his car slides off the side of the mountain and he’s trapped under the debris, his white wolf saves him and takes him back to his cabin to heal. Jessie wakes with no memories prior to the accident, but he remembers those blue eyes, the blue eyes that are now once again staring into his soul.
Xander Dane doesn’t understand this pull to the human man at first, but quickly realizes the emotions that are taking over are because he’s found his mate. But before he can claim his mate he will have to deal with his fellow pack mates who are bound to question the first wolf with a same sex mate, and the fact that Jessie has no memories and may have a life to go back to that doesn’t include him. My only complaint isn’t really a complaint. The story was way too short! I want more. Anyone that has read shifter romance knows that it is usually instant love, due to the mate bond.
Regardless, Zane and Jessie were too sexy, and Law really did lay the groundwork for a fantastic series. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

Blurb: Will a ghost from Colton’s past remind him of his love for Valentine?
Colton hates Valentines and everything that goes with it. Lane has been his friend and confident for the last five years but he just can’t bring himself to admit the love he has for Colt. One night a ghost of a former lover appears to Colton and shows him not only how much he loved Valentine’s Day but how if he doesn’t change his ways he could be heading to an tragic ending. Will Colton write his own Happy Ever After or will he let his own personal demons drag down himself and the one who would love him.
Review: Colt is visited by the ghost of his ex-lover Mike, a policeman shot in the line of duty, which has left Colt hating Valentine’s Day ever since. This reminded me of a mix of Scrooge and It’s a Wonderful Life with the ghost of Mike showing Colt their past and the reason he died, the present and Lanes’s unspoken love for Colt, and the tragic future for Lane that might be if things continue as they are.
If you like, a sweet tale with the promise of second chances at love, this is for you
