Blurb: Hunting ghosts and finding more than they bargained for.

Blaine Franks is a member of the paranormal research group the Supernatural Explorers. When the group loses their techie to a cross-country move, newly graduated Flynn Huntington gets the job.

Flynn fits in with the guys right off the bat, but when it comes to him and Blaine, it’s more than just getting along.

Things heat up between Blaine and Flynn as they explore their first haunted building, an abandoned hospital, together. Their relationship isn’t all that progresses, though, and soon it seems that an odd bite on Blaine’s neck has become much more.

Hitchhiking ghosts, a tragic love story forgotten by time, and the mystery of room 204 round out a romance where the things that go bump in the night are real.

Review: I don’t think I have a concrete impression of author Sean Michael. I love the writing style, but it all comes down to the plot line itself and substance of the story as to if I finish and enjoy a book. In general, I find his books enjoyable, but I can’t say that I love every one of them.

The Supers is about a group of ghost busters, looking to make their big break. It’s a pretty cool concept that was executed great in both writing and in Kenneth Obi’s narration. In fact, Obi is becoming of one my favorite MM narrators lately. I like his tone and the subtle nuances Obi brings, particularly to a MM paranormal book which doesn’t have a set “alpha”. The characters are ordinary guys and as such Obi gives these guys the right voice and tone. In short, everything just works.

The book follows Blaine loves being a part of the group. Hard times on the family farm means that he had to put on hold his plans of moving away to help his parents. His parents are overly impressed by his second job, but they don’t make a fuss. It is basically Blaine’s unwinding time. He just happens to chase after ghosts and trying to capture them on audio or camera. After losing their usual tech person who monitors cameras, recordings, etc. their group manager hires Flynn, who is a newly graduated sound technician. Flynn fits in, as the blurb says, but he especially hits it off with Blaine.

These guys are very sweet and great chemistry together. An underlying story, as hinted in the blurb about the mystery of room 204, really adds to their budding relationship. In my opinion, the mystery of room 204 is THE highlight of this story.

This book is great for anyone who loves watching those ghost hunter type of shows. I love the underlying story which emerges at the end; it really added a certain spice that was both sad and perfect. Like when I read the book, I’m super excited to find out what the rest of the series has in store.

Blurb: The magic touch.

Ever since Harlan Edgewood was bitten by a possessed werewolf, his monthly shifts have been agonizing. When he meets Whimsy Hickes—a mage who specializes in transformation—the attraction is mutual. But Harlan believes his curse is too great a burden to inflict on any romantic partner.

Fortunately, Whimsy thinks he can help.

When Harlan is provoked into an unexpected change, Whimsy uses his magic to help ease Harlan’s pain, but with an unexpected consequence. While he’s shifted, Harlan’s wolf claims Whimsy as his mate.

As they draw closer, suspicious events in the Asheville magical community escalate. Shifters are disappearing, others are murdered, and Harlan’s curse makes him an obvious target. It will take all of Whimsy’s magic to force back the rising evil—and if he fails, Harlan will lose not only his life, but his very soul.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Forged in Fire is the second book of Ari Mackay’s paranormal mystery series, Asheville Arcana from Dreamspun Beyond. I was really looking forward to reading this as I had been surprised at how much I had loved the first book in the series and got invested in two of the minor characters, one of which is the MC of this book.

If you haven’t read the first book in the series, you need to read it before starting this one or else there will be a lot of confusion. Although a different couple is at the center of the plot the actual mystery of the first book is carried over as more strange information from the paranormal council of the Asheville area indicates continued danger for the paranormal citizens of the area. There is danger in the shape of rogue and possessed shifters and a council so stuck in their ways that they can’t see that they should help their citizens to the point of being suspicious.

At the front of everything is turned werewolf Harlan and the young mage Whimsy. Whimsy’s best friends, the half-elf Arden (MC from book one) and brooding vampire Julian, as well as Arden’s born-werewolf mate, Eli are right there along for the ride. They want the best for Whimsy, but they do worry about him. After all, always one to want to help, Whimsy promises he will do what he can to help turned-werewolf Harlan control his wolf. Ever since he was turned by a werewolf possessed by a demon two centuries ago, Harlan’s shifts have been painful, and he finds it near impossible to control the beast inside him. Whimsy knows if he gets it right, he can use his powers to help Harlan. Funny thing happens along the way though, because Harlan and Whimsy are mates.

This is a fun and action-packed book. Anyone who loved book one will be more than satisfied, although probably like me, now anxiously awaiting to see his grumpy, antisocial Julian can find a mate and a HEA in the near future.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Wolves of Stone Ridge collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This story is branched off to several other series, so you might want to check those out also.

Just a sweet little story to rock your world. Vince wanted to plan the perfect Christmas gift for his mate. He just had not expected to get hurt before hand, but thanks to his friends and pack mates things might look up. He has the best wolf shifter mate and a darling little boy, and things are going perfect for the vampire. Frankie is going to love it.

Now this shows you how the perfect secret is wanted. I got a kick out of this story and was glad to see the tough vampire and cute shifter in it. I also loved to see the little boys reaction as well. Perfect story to warm up the winter cold. I had a lot of fun with it and would definitely read it again and again.

Blurb: Cameron Ward is an actor from Atlanta. After a stint in New York, he returns home to find work in Georgia’s growing film and TV industry. He lands a lead role in a film, playing a submissive, but he doesn’t know anything about the lifestyle. Wanting to make sure his portrayal is believable, Cameron goes to the Candy Cane Club, a BDSM dungeon, where he meets Anton Albright, a Dom. Cameron loosens up enough to do a scene with Anton, but he discovers a side of himself he’d never suspected. But Cameron had enough difficulty coming out as gay, and he’s not ready to admit he’s a submissive as well.

Dr. Anton Albright has a reputation for being good with new subs. What he’d really like, though, is a sub of his own. Cameron is the kind of man Anton wants, and once Cameron accepts his need to serve — and, especially, to serve Anton — they explore the possibilities of a relationship that will give them both everything they want and need.

But when fame comes calling at Cameron’s door, their private, intimate world is threatened. Anton’s medical practice won’t survive his private life being held up to public display, and Cameron finds it difficult to adjust to extended periods away from his Sir. Can they find a compromise that will make them both happy, or will Cameron’s rising star force him to leave Anton behind?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Cameron is doing research into submissive’s for his role as one in an upcoming movie. He goes to the Candy Club to observe and talk with others about BDSM. Mistress Hyacinth introduces him to Master Anton.

Master Anton is a Dom whose patient and friendly. From the moment these two meet they are attracted to each other. I liked the way Anton described what to expect in certain scenes. He never pushed Cameron in the least and gave him time to think through and accept or decline.

I honestly liked the book but was expecting more like suspense or action in other similar books by different authors. Never the less it was a good read for those who enjoy only BDSM stories.

Good read.

Remus might be a sugar glider but he’s anything but sweet. That was beaten out of him at an early age along with caring for anyone other than his twin. Keeping to himself is the best for him since one day he’ll just disappear from the Loyalty.

When the threat of Tomin’s former master rears, the only thing that Remus can think of protecting Tomin at all costs. Can Remus overcome his walls to help Tomin get the best revenge? Proving to himself that he’s worth so much more than he ever realized.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Assassin’s Loyalty collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This is a branch off of the Lost Shifter series and Wayne County Wolves.

Stephani is one hell of an author. Her stories have amazing depth to them and the characters are drool worthy. The worlds she creates are one that I would love to live in. They just grab your attention and keep it there till the very end. She also gives you characters that have strength but not just physical. Some of her characters have been through hell and deserve the ending they get.

Tomin is a tiger shifter and an assassin. He is also one of the youngest so he has to deal with the leaders driving him nuts. He thinks that he is not worth anything but always ready to crack a joke. However his past always keeps stuck in his head. And now it looks like his past might be coming back to get him.

Remus is a sugar glider and a twin. He learned early on how to block certain things from his brother and one of them was the way he had been treated by their family. Or I should say one certain family member who wanted to teach them to be assassin’s. He feels like certain parts have been beaten out of him, and his emotions are one of them.

You put these two together and things are going to get real interesting. Now all they have to do is to stop the danger coming for Tomin and to get their hearts to realize that they are perfect for each other.

I think Tomin is one of the best characters that I have read for this particular series. There is just something about him, that even though he is an assassin he still has a big heart. He was taken down but got himself right back up. I enjoyed reading this book and can not wait to get my hands on the next book. Way to go Stephani, another hit with me.

Blurb: The Blackwood Pack saga continues…

This is part of an on-going series and reading the previous titles is advised. Readers of the past books will enjoy meeting old friends once more as the pack does what it does best ̶ caring for each other.

Slate, one of the last Dire Wolves, has carved out a life which suits him fine—plenty of traveling to exotic locations and an abundance of one night stands to handle his needs. While he’s happy for his brother, who has found his Fated Mate, Slate isn’t interested in finding his—at least not for a long time. That is, until his body betrays him. Seeking his mother’s help—who is an Oracle—Slate pays a visit to the Blackwood Pack where he finds the Fates have once again, messed with his life.

Dakota, the chef for the Blackwood Pack, fell in love with cooking as a young child and ultimately the kitchen became a place of refuge for him. Suffering with a ‘curse’ through much of his childhood, he relied heavily on his mother’s help to deal with it. After the massacre of his mother and siblings by their greedy uncle, Dakota barely survives, but finally forges a life for himself, content to stay home and take care of the people he loves.

A long-hidden secret, rejection of a mate, acceptance of rare gifts, and a brutal kidnapping are just some of the obstacles Dakota and Slate must battle together to save their relationship. As the pack rallies around them, both must learn to trust the other before they can find the happiness that the Fates have ordained for them…

Slate finds that fate is once again interfering in his life as he is sent toward his mate. Dakota, a chef of the Blackwood pack, has a lifetime of worry tagging along for the ride as he carves out a new life for himself after surviving the massacre by his uncle.

I loved these two characters. They fought, they loved, they conquered. Such an amazing ride to witness as these two struggle to make it through what life has thrown their way to achieve happiness with the other.

I have enjoyed the entire series so far. Adventurous, mysterious, and romance plus a slew of other genres thrown into the mix to make for an interesting series.

Great read.

Lisa’s Review: 💖💖💖💖 3.5 Hearts

Slate loves to travel and help other packs. He is one of the last dire wolves and has a destiny to finish in a way. He wants his mate and knows that one of the gifts given to him is for his mate to become pregnant. However he doesn’t want one right off the bat or so he thinks. When he finds his mate on a visit home. The gods give many gifts and he is about to be surprised.

Dakota is an empath and the worst is the fear and pain of others. His gift is more of a curse to him. His father is one of the evils of the world and he felt it all. The hate that he had for his family and the fact that he just loved to cause pain in his sons. When he figures out who his mate is, he panics. He knows Slate doesn’t want one but he can’t stay hidden forever.

I had a few issues with the story that made me want to just give up on the story. The jump from one character to the next drove me nuts and the fact that the author reiterated certain parts over and over was a bit overdone. There were certain words used for pecs and sex that made me think a teen was writing the story. The word tits for pecs made the stupid come out. It made me think the author was wishing for females then the guys in the story. There was just more information in the story than was needed and it made me want to put the book down. It made the story feel like the author just threw it in to make the book longer and it didn’t do it any justice. You could have the danger that showed up in there without the need to float back and forth in the story. It took away from the characters in the end. I was glad that the guys got their happy ending but the way the story was told made me want to pitch the whole series.

The world that the author created was amazing but the way the story was told not so much. Information overload is what I think of. I will admit that this story is not one of those that will be read more than once and that was a let down. The story would have been a five if it had not had to much added in to make word count. I am sorry but for right now this story is not what it should have been or where it should have been at.

But there’s a mystery surrounding the Might brothers, one Bobby is desperate to solve. When Clint’s secret is finally revealed, it brings a threat with it that could kill them before they even have a chance to admit their feelings. Only by working with together can they stay alive long enough to admit they are perfect for each other.

Review: Each book in the Men of Might collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Clint and his brothers go in and rescue those who need help. Many years ago their mother and father worked for a lab that did research and experiments on those who volunteered. The only way it didn’t happen is if the women were pregnant. The scientist had no clue what would happen to an unborn child. However there was one scientist that didn’t believe in all that, he wanted to know what happens. So Clint’s parents ran, except his father didn’t make it. So rescuing a child also leads him to his mate.

Bobby is a detective who just wants the truth. He sees something wrong and he checks it out. To bad this time it gets him into trouble. Being held hostage and then getting saved, leads him to some pretty amazing surprises. One is he has a mate, a mate that turns into a jaguar. Now if they can all survive the trouble coming, well you will have to read this story. There is also a very nice surprise for our guys.

I started reading romance when I was twelve and fell in love with the magic of a written story. I have always been fascinated by the worlds that were created. I came across m/m romance just a few years ago and I have found that I prefer them over any other book. Every once in awhile you find an author that just gets the story right. Stormy has been one of my favorite authors for quite sometime and is one that I automatically purchase as soon as they come out. So when I found out about this book, I knew that I had to grab it. The stories she creates is fascinating and very tempting for me. The characters are fully developed and seem to just have this extra zest about them that makes them even hotter.

There is a serious tone to it but there is some humor to be found within. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It gave me everything I could possibly want in a story and so much more. I had a lot of fun with it and would definitely recommend it. I can’t wait till the next story comes out.

Five years later, the remnants of humanity travel through the stars inside Forever, a living, ever-evolving, self-contained generation ship. When Eddy Tremaine and Andy Hammond find a hidden world-within-a-world under the mountains, the discovery triggers a chain of events that could fundamentally alter or extinguish life as they know it, culminate in the takeover of the world mind, and end free will for humankind.

Control the AI, control the people.

Eddy, Andy, and a handful of other unlikely heroes—people of every race and identity, and some who aren’t even human—must find the courage and ingenuity to stand against the rising tide.

Otherwise they might be living through the end days of human history.

Purchase Link: DSP Publications | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Review: This story is the second book in the Liminal Sky series and follows on from The Stark Divide so I’d advise that the books must be read in order.

The Rising Tide begins five years after the end of The Stark Divide with Eddy, now the Sheriff, starting an investigation into missing and slaughtered sheep. Eddy stumbles across something that shocks Eddy, Andy, Colin and the Immortals; it will also turn your stomach.

Before delving further into the story I would advise brushing up on the characters in The Stark Divide, because I went into this story cold and it took a bit of time for the characters to fall back into my memory. This story can’t be read without having all the background and characters stories that are fully fleshed out in The Stark Divide; you wouldn’t make it past chapter one without scratching your head and wondering what the hell you’d fallen into.

When we finished book 1 we knew that Davian would cause some problems in the future, and now we finally discover just what trouble Davian causes and boy is it a doozy.

The Rising Tide is split into three parts, Rendezvous 2171, Coup 2181, and Flight 2188. This really is an amazing story and while it has gay, lesbian, Trans and asexual characters I would actually say that this is a more mainstream story. There’s no romance as such and no one character to focus on. Each part sees progression for all the characters, their lives growing and changing, new main characters coming forward and some main characters being lost. As with the previous story there is a core of characters who have the centre light, as they age and roles change the younger generation take the spotlight.

There are shocking revelations, danger, depravity and sheer horror at times in the story; we also have love, understanding and forgiveness. There are several relationships being built, restored, explored and let go, I’d love to delve deeper but with so many main characters there’s just too many to describe. The main focus of this story is family, friendship and the adventure of surviving as a whole world inside a living world/ship, the last of humanity, the hope of the future, and free will.  

This is an amazing story, the world building, the character development and story development which keeps you gripped as you discover what’s happening, are so fully flesh out that you get immersed in their world, you feel for the guys as they struggle to put their world to rights and battle an evil that wants to rule with an iron grip to serve his wants and whims.

As I reached the end of the book I began to wonder what could be next, the evil has been vanquished, safeguards have been put into place to protect the world mind, the last of humanity have begun to establish Governments for its cities and begun to rebuild after the devastation… so what is next??? I suppose we’ll have to wait and see.

I recommend this to those who love deep science fiction stories, who adore a storyline that pulls you along in its wake, who love interesting characters, who love the sheer instinct to survive, and an ending that leaves you feeling fulfilled but wondering what could be next for our intrepid survivors.

But when the pack leader, his uncle Ron, is attacked, he has no choice but to leave his beloved Colorado mountains and fulfill his duty as Ron’s heir – at least until his uncle recovers. In the meantime, he intends to lure the attacker out…and make them pay.

When Ron gets wind of Sebastian’s plan to catch the attacker, he doesn’t like the idea of risking his heir. That’s where Jaxon Reedis comes in – he’ll balance protecting the dark and sexy werewolf with pretending to be his personal assistant. He’s walking a fine line that requires all his foxy wit and craftiness…and that’s on top of the inescapable feeling that he and Sebastian are meant for each other. When the attacker returns, will they be able to maintain their deepening bond when danger threatens to tear down everything they’re building?

Review: The Wolf’s Man Friday is book 2 in Julia Talbot’s Nose to Tail Inc. series. If you’re like me and haven’t read book 1, it is fine to dive right into book 2 without any problems whatsoever. Although, honestly, after listening to this book and reading the blurb of book 1 I really do want to get my hands on it as soon as I can. The book is super fun, with a good dash of action.

The MCs of this books is Sebastian Zellar and Jaxon Reedis. Sebastian is an artist at heart and run’s his uncle’s textile company. However, his uncle Ron, who basically raised Sebastian from a young age, was attacked and two of his men were killed. Of course, Sebastian can’t let this go and he wants to find out who’s responsible. Knowing this about his nephew, Ron hires protection for Sebastian, not wanting his beloved nephew to get himself killed.

That’s where Jaxon comes in. Jaxon works for Nose and Tails Inc., a staffing agency. Jaxon’s boss knows that he is the best man to keep an Seb for Ron. Jaxon also explains that he was trained as a butler and so working as a PA is an easy role to ease into. Jaxon has to work hard to keep an eye on Seb. And when circumstances bring them closer, tension is added when the guys give into their sexual desires but don’t accept their mating bond straight away.

Both MCs are charismatic and totally charming – even if Sebastian is a grumpy wolf! I particularly liked Jaxon, he’s a bouncy, agile fox who has been hired by Sebastian’s father to be Sebastian’s bodyguard while masquerading as his PA. I also enjoyed the secondary characters as well, particularly Sebastian’s friends, Allan, his partner in crime, and Tyrone, an elk shifter who has known Seb and Allan for years and is now Seb’s driver. The overall plot was good except that I felt it a little slow in some places, but nothing that didn’t bother me too much. This is a great adventure – many fans of shape shifter books will find this one a satisfying read.

Master Braden’s Houseboy

(Irish Runaway 03)

Brina Brady

Reece was a guitar player and a singer at his grandfather’s pub in Dublin until someone betrays his secret. Once he was a happy and carefree young man, who finds himself on the streets and homeless.

He meets a handsome stranger, who gives him hope that the world still has people with compassion, until he discovers the man may have compassion, but he is no softie. Conner hires Reece as his houseboy.

Much to his shock, Conner Braden isn’t only a garda (Irish police officer), but he is also a Dom! The two men are complete opposites, but that doesn’t stop Reece from wanting to win his heart.

What happens when Master Braden blurs the lines between employer and Dom when Reece is his employee?

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This book contains mild BDSM elements including restraints, blindfolds, and spanking. While the story uses characters from The Irish Runaway Series, you can read this book as a standalone.

A Summer Soundtrack for Falling in Love


Arden Powell

What he wanted was a music career. What he needed was love.

When Kris Golding leaves his dusty Kansas hometown for a fresh start in New York, he thinks an apartment and a job are waiting for him. But when he finds neither, rather than admit defeat, he takes his chances busking—and meets Rayne Bakshi of international rock band The Chokecherries. Rayne needs a new guitarist, and gives Kris his first break since leaving home.

Rayne wears makeup and glitter and thinks nothing of kissing Kris in front of twenty thousand screaming fans for the attention. Instantly infatuated, Kris begins to question whether he might have a crush on Rayne—could he be bisexual? But since Kris originally claimed to be straight, Rayne’s wary of getting involved offstage.

As their tour gains momentum, Kris’s sexuality becomes the least of his troubles. Between his conservative brother hell-bent on “rescuing” him from his life of debauchery, a peacock that may or may not be the avatar of a cult god, and a publicity stunt that threatens to upend the band, Kris is definitely not in Kansas anymore.

The Fruit Of The Poisonous Tree

(Stoker & Bash 02)

Selina Kray

When will She open Rebecca Northcote’s box?

Finding lost poodles and retrieving stolen baubles is not how DI Tim Stoker envisioned his partnership with his lover, Hieronymus Bash. So when the police commissioner’s son goes missing, he’s determined to help, no matter what secrets he has to keep, or from whom.

When a family member is kidnapped, Hiero moves heaven and earth to rescue them. Even if that means infiltrating the Daughters of Eden, a cult of wealthy widows devoted to the teachings of Rebecca Northcote and the mysterious contents of her box. The Daughters’ goodwill toward London’s fallen women has given them a saintly reputation, but Hiero has a nose for sniffing out a fraud. He will need to draw on some divine inspiration to rattle the pious Daughters.

Like weeds gnarling the roots of Eden’s fabled tree, Tim and Hiero’s cases intertwine. Serpents, secrets, and echoes from Hiero’s past lurk behind every branch. Giving in to temptation could bind them closer together—or sever their partnership forever.

(Until You 03)

Karrie Roman

Zach Piper has escaped his father’s cult only to find himself in a world he doesn’t understand. Abused and neglected, he’s grown up an outcast among outcasts. He has no business trusting anybody after what he’s been through, but when Cameron Cronin takes him in and shows him a world he never knew, he willingly hands over his trust. In Cameron he finds honor and decency—someone who cares.

Cameron lives without love and he prefers it that way. He never wants to fall in love again. The last man he loved shattered Cameron’s heart as surely as his trust. When he takes in much-younger Zach, who recently emerged from his own hell, he hears the familiar whisper of long-dead feelings. But he doesn’t want to love. He cannot trust he won’t be broken again if he does.

As time passes and the two men get to know each other, Cameron’s feelings for Zach deepen whether he wants it or not. But just when Cameron decides to trust in Zach, and act on the love he knows is there, both of their pasts come storming back to threaten everything they’ve built. When their lives hang in the balance they must trust each other enough to get out alive.

Warning: Scenes of graphic violence; memories of past abuse and rape

An inexplicable bond forms between the two men in the chaos and horror of the theater, and Liam fights to bring Jase back to the world he ran away from. When Jase returns to school, they’re drawn together as soulmates, and soon Liam and Jase fall into a turbulent romantic relationship. However, the rocky path to love cannot be smoothed until Jase rescues his hero in return by delving into his shady past and solving the mystery of Liam’s compulsion to be everybody’s savior.

Sara Dobie Bauer

Ancient vampire Andrew escaped his tropical island exile with his beloved human sailor, Edmund.

Desperate to stay by Andrew’s side forever, Edmund examines the impressive coven library in search of an Elder, the only creature capable of turning Edmund. Although missing for centuries, Andrew believes an Elder must still survive somewhere; they just have to find him.

The search is put on hold when Edmund receives word that his mother is ill in London, and the lovers set off on an oceanic journey surrounded by new friends and old enemies. When things go terribly wrong, Edmund’s fragile human life hangs in the balance, and an Elder must be found or Andrew will be alone forever.
