Blurb: When John Trent, a dedicated member of the new Bow Street Runners, finds an exquisite carved angel floating in the Thames, he can’t stop thinking about it. He tracks down its creator, a sad and quiet young sculptor. But neither the angel nor the sculptor is done with John just yet. The blasted angel refuses to leave him be, behaving not at all like an inanimate object should.

Alec Allston is resigned to the fact that his love will ever be a river that flows out and never flows in. All he wanted to do was create a special gift so that a small part of himself could be with his unattainable and noble beloved, always. But when the gift keeps showing back up at his shop in the hands of a windblown and rugged thief-taker, Alec will need to reconsider his conviction that love is destined to remain an aethereal ideal.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Alec has had his heart broken and was going to take his life. However an angel stopped him. He is an amazing sculptor and creates an ornament in the shape of the angel. He had given it to the man he had loved, but the asshat threw it in the lake. A sweet man found it and located him down to give it back. But it is not the last time.

John finds the beautiful angel and returns it, twice. He can’t get his mind off it nor off the sculptor. He then decides to show the sweet man how he feels. A courting we will go.

I really need to pay attention to certain descriptions of books. I don’t care for historicals no matter how cute they can be. I just can’t keep my mind on a story that has history older than me. However Eli has a gift at telling a story of that time. She nailed it pretty good. The name for what John does, which I just call a beat cop, is actually pretty cool. The guys are more like the ones that you would meet in those times. The part I didn’t get was how you greeted each other, would have driven me nuts.

The story is well told and the characters were quite charming. I even liked the secondary characters. I found the story entertaining and quite interesting in a way. It is a really sweet Christmas story. However I really was not a fan of it and it was just not my cup of tea.

Blurb: The year is 1969…

Gary Fairchild is proud to be a hippie college student, and he protests the Vietnam War because he believes in love and peace. To him, it isn’t just a counterculture movement—it’s a way of life. When tickets to the Aquarium Exposition—3 Days of Peace & Music, or Woodstock, as it was better known, go on sale, there’s no way he isn’t going.

Richard Ronsman is a sheltered farm boy who lives in the shadow of his overbearing father. He’s hidden his darkest secret to earn his father’s love, but nothing is ever good enough—not even volunteering for the Vietnam War. And with just a few days left before he’s deployed, a striking hippie invites him to join them at a music festival.

Three days of music, drugs, rain, mud, and love forged a bond between these two very different men that would shape the rest of their lives. They share dreams and fears, and when Richard is shipped off to war, they share letters and love. For Richard’s first Christmas home, he is gifted a special angel ornament that just might make a soldier’s wish come true.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Three days is all it takes to find love. A young man who believes only in peace and love, and a man who will do anything to get his families approval. Richard is a naive young man who has spent his whole life on a farm. Nothing he does will ever get his fathers love, but he does the one thing he thinks will get it. He joins the Vietnam war as a volunteer. He decides to take a invitation up and goes to Woodstock, with Gary.

Gary does not believe in the war. He just believes in his heart. He invites Richard to spend three days at Woodstock with him and to enjoy. They make a promise a to always stay in touch. This is a magical time for both men and in a time where it is really dangerous.

This story is told in a weird way. It goes from the moment they meet to eght years later. You go from Woodstock all the way to San Fransico. A young man forced to join a war he didn’t want to be in just to please his family and comes back broken in more ways then one. So this story is full of pain and angst, but does have its happy parts as well. It is a well told story that will have you in tears and have you smiling as well. They make a Christmas wish that an angel brings true. It is a sweet Christmas story that will make your heart swell with the best of them.

Now to the down side to the story. It didn’t really catch my attention like it should have nor did it keep it. I don’t really care for stories that are not in the future so to speak. It doesn’t really do anything for me and wasn’t really my cup of tea. That is not saying it isn’t a good book, but it just wasn’t for me.

Rebellion

by

Naomi Aoki

1899, political tensions are rising with the emergence of the Boxer Movement in Northern China, straining ties between the Chinese Imperial Government and the Eight Nations with stakes in the country. As a Captain in the Royal Marines, Alfred Cartwright is deployed to Shanghai, where he discovers more than he’d dared to dream of – Love. Not even the struggles with language or the fear of reprisals if their relationship is found out, can stop Alfred from falling for the Chinese man he encounters. But as the ant-foreigner sentiment of the Boxer Movement grows in strength, their relationship will be put to the test.

Where do Alfred’s loyalties lie? With the man he loves or his country, as they stand opposite each other on a battlefield neither can escape.

Blurb: Pax Polo is the swashbuckling guitarist for Serenity Free.

Correction: Was the swashbuckling guitarist for Serenity Free.

Now he sports a black eye and his bros have kicked him out of their band—three weeks before Christmas. It’s an unfamiliar kick to his over-inflated ego, but . . . whatever.

No problem.

Thanks to some stellar eavesdropping, an unexpected angel ornament, and a bribe to open for his favorite band ever, Pax will weasel his way back into his mates’ good graces.

All he has to do is friend Clifford, the neighborhood man-shrew, for the summer. Distract him a bit so Clifford’s younger sister can sneak around.

It sounds like a piece of beginners Beethoven. Jolly good fun.

Easy.

Because, Pax totally knows how to friend people. He has heaps of friends. This shrew’s no match for his shrewd ways. Or is he?

ISBN: B07KFDL1L6

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Pax pretty much looses everything just right before Christmas, including the one job he loved. Playing the guitar is not really a job but an enjoyment I would say. He has to figure out how to get back in with his buddies. He is the ultimate medlor for one and he has a plan. He just hadn’t planned on Clifford.

Clifford has his own problems. Two that have their eyes on his sister, not going to happen. Where as Pax is trouble and kind of a mess, Cliff it the exact opposite. He is a bit grumpy and well you will see. Now Pax has his eye on Luca getting Cliff’s sister, however Henry would get Pax what he wants.

What is Christmas without a bit of magic, a boring Christmas is what I would say. However not so with this story. Although the first half of the story, I wasn’t really seeing to much of a romance between our two guys. The pace to this story was a too slow in my eyes and didn’t really keep my attention like it should have. However the romance was just a bit slower than that. It made the book feel much longer than it was. I am afraid that my attention wavered quite a bit and didn’t entertain me like I had hoped. Now after the first half, the heat between the two did get intense. The angst that Cliff had when he found out the reason for Pax’s attention was a bit more expected but then again what does one expect. If I had to pick my favorite character in this story, I would probably pick Cliff. He is a grumpy young man who has had a sad past. He just pulls you in a bit more than Pax. Pax just could piss a saint off. He is very quirky. Although I didn’t much care for tricking one so that the guys could get to know an underage girl was a good sign. Also the bribe was a bit much. So there were parts I liked and parts that I could have done without.

Overall I would say it is an enjoyable read but I find that I didn’t really care for it. The author does have an amazing gift at telling a story. However it felt like things were added in that could have been done without. It didn’t really have that much of a Christmas element to it, except for the magical ornament or what ever it was suppose to be. I also didn’t care for the Shakespeare theme that I felt was going on.

Blurb: Kaiyo’s bloodline has been part of the Garrow pack for generations. He has been destined to be shaman, to anchor the werewolves to the land, and lend aid with the force of his Ousía. When Kaiyo is fourteen, however, an attacking group kills all of the adults in the pack, leaving young Ahmik, only fifteen, as leader.

Their worries don’t end there.

Smelling blood in the water, enemies hunt the decimated pack from all sides. Kaiyo grows increasingly reckless in his desperation to defend his pack, to finally grow into his shaman powers, and to protect Ahmik: the boy he loves.

In the end, Kaiyo loses his pack anyway.

Packless, landless, Kaiyo drifts. For ten years, he fights to remake himself into the shaman, and the man, he was meant to become. One phone call from his old pack, though, and he is forced to return.

Something is killing children and Kaiyo is the only one strong enough to stop it.

Kaiyo never thought his journey would take him back to his old land, his old pack, and to Ahmik. Forced to face his past, and the wounded love that still aches for Ahmik, Kaiyo will be tested like never before.

Content Warning: This story contains themes of depression and associated thoughts and behaviours. However, as always, it focuses on recovery and strength.

This book takes place in the Natural Magic world but can be read as a standalone.

ISBN: B07KWQH35D

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This story is about Kaiyo and Ahmik but from Kaiyo’s POV. It’s an emotional, telling story of suffering, loss, tragedy, struggles and love. Kaiyo and Ahmik suffer unimaginable loss at the beginning. This sets in motion Kaiyo’s journey in helping others and accomplishing his goal in becoming a shaman of the pack.

I loved the journey and the details. Though I understood Ahmik’s reason for doing what he did I would have liked his POV as well to better to understand him and where he was coming from. The characters from the first book do not make an appearance in this installment which was a pity.

I loved how Kaiyo reconnected with the pack after being gone so long then called back to help with a mystery and not being able to leave for year. It made my heart happy after all the depression scenes and therapy sessions in the book.

This story was an emotional roller coaster. Good read.

The Stars May Rise and Fall

by

Estella Mirai 

Teru came to Tokyo with dreams of making it big in the glam-metal visual kei scene, but three years later, all he has to show for it is a head of hot pink hair and some skill with an eyeliner pencil. He may look the part, but he doesn’t sound it, and constant bickering among his bandmates has him worried about his future. When he finds a mysterious business card in his bag, he’s willing to take any help he can get.

Help comes in the form of Rei, a crippled, disfigured composer whose own career was ended by an accident before it had really begun. With Teru’s voice and looks, and Rei’s money and songwriting skills, both of their dreams seem about to come true – but a forbidden kiss and a late-night confession threaten to tear it all apart. Now Teru, who has spent most of his life denying his attraction to men, and Rei, who vowed long ago never to love again, must reconcile their feelings with their careers – and with their carefully constructed ideas of themselves.

THE STARS MAY RISE AND FALL is an M/M retelling of Phantom of the Opera, set in Tokyo at the turn of the millennium. It comes with a healthy dose of angst and a dollop of nostalgia, as well as an age-difference romance, a physically disabled love interest, and memorable characters who will stay with you long after the pages are closed.

The year is 1969…

Gary Fairchild is proud to be a hippie college student, and he protests the Vietnam War because he believes in love and peace. To him, it isn’t just a counterculture movement—it’s a way of life. When tickets to the Aquarium Exposition—3 Days of Peace & Music, or Woodstock, as it was better known, go on sale, there’s no way he isn’t going.

Richard Ronsman is a sheltered farm boy who lives in the shadow of his overbearing father. He’s hidden his darkest secret to earn his father’s love, but nothing is ever good enough—not even volunteering for the Vietnam War. And with just a few days left before he’s deployed, he’s invited by a striking hippie to join him at a music festival.

Three days of music, drugs, rain, mud, and love forged a bond between these two very different men that would shape the rest of their lives. They share dreams and fears, and when Richard is shipped off to war, they share letters and love. For Richard’s first Christmas home, he is gifted a special angel ornament that just might make a soldier’s wish come true.

From These Ashes

(Haven Hart 04)
by

Davidson King

A product of his past, Black spends half his time saving lives and the other half taking them. Every day, a hard choice must be made and he’s the man to make it. Long ago, he vowed to never love again; one-night stands with a willing body was all he ever needed. But along came Quill, and Black’s life is irrevocably changed. He never expects something as simple as Quill’s persistence to alter the way he not only sees the world, but how he lives it.

Quill has bad taste in men and equally horrible luck. Growing up wasn’t easy, surviving is even harder. When his past and present collide, he’s convinced he’ll finally witness his own destruction. But when an unlikely antihero steps in to protect him, his life is turned on its head. He’s spent months flirting with the man of his dreams and hoping he’d take notice. But it turns out, being on Black’s radar isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and his idea of protection varies greatly from Quill’s.

Unknowingly sharing the same goal—burying their own pasts deeper than the fires of hell can reach—they’re both unaware that jumping into that fire will do more than ignite their feelings, it could lead to their own demise. Will Black and Quill be consumed by the flames, or from these ashes, will they find their own happily ever after?

When Nate needs An’s help with his son, An doesn’t refuse.

The diagnosis of a chronic stomach condition leaves thirty-two-year-old Sergeant Jed Cooper with little choice but to call time on his Army career. Then on the dusty streets of Kirkuk, an ambush gone tragically wrong decimates his team, and he returns to the US with a shattered leg and the memory of his best friend dying in his arms.

Life in his sleepy hometown proves intolerable until he finds solace in a lakeside cabin with vivacious young carpenter, Max O’Dair. In the shadow of the epilepsy that periodically plagues Max, he and Jed form an unspoken bond. After a late night episode, Jed realizes how much Max means to him, and life has taught him not to waste time.

But the lines between contentment and complacency are blurred. Things left hidden resurface to tear through their world, and before they can repair the damage, death comes to call again. Faces, past and present, rally around them to weather the storm, but before long, they are left with only love.

Blurb: This is the fourteenth book of the Eternal Flames series which will now be read at mixed with Eternal Flames Maddox series, you should read those series in order. The reading order can be found on our websites…….maggiewalshauthor.weebly.com and creestorm.weebly.com. This book may have some triggers for people with PTSD, Music had always soothed Deja and helped him through troubling times. So when he meets his mate, Shadow, and sees how his close proximity is hurting him, Deja takes a job he had only dreamed could be possible.

Shadow should be thrilled that his mate has gone off to live in Maddox, but yearns to claim what fate has brought into his life. However, living as long as he has, seeing and experiencing all the ugly life has to offer, he knows he is no good for the sexy man. When it’s opening night and Deja is attacked, things change.

Can Shadow keep his mate at arm’s length, unclaimed, and safe from those that would be out to hurt him?

ISBN: B07K5T8PGS

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Eternal Flame collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is connected to Eternal Flames: Maddox and the Kaliss series.

Shadow has spent most of his time in the military, not only the present one either. For over a hundred years or more, he has served in one place or another. He had been almost killed by his father when he was found with another man, then the ones who took him in told him it was time for him to leave. He had been abandoned so many times he lost count. His soul was darkened by what he had done even if it was for the good guys. Then he found a new family in a goup of men he served with until someone set out to kill them. So when he finds his mate, he does the one thing to protect his heart, he runs.

Deja was two years old when a band of gypsies found him and took him in. His brothers might not be of blood but they were still his brothers. One of his brothers was injured and he just wanted to help him, so he did what he was good at, he sang to him. Then he saw a man staring at him, and somehow knew this man was his. You see Shadow is a panther shifter and Deja is human, or so he thinks. Poor guy is in for more shocks real soon.

Someone is out to get Deja and you know what a fierce panther can do to prey, just wait and see. We don’t really see these two together much in the book till later on, and somehow the authors just work it right. This is one of those books that will be read more than once or even a dozen times. It captivated me from the get go and lets just say I have just finished reading it for the second time. It doesn’t really pull at me as some of the others in this series does, but it still gives me an excellent read. It gave me everything I could ask for in a story such as excitement, action, danger and some hot sexy times.

I absolutely loved this book and can not wait to get my hands on the next story. I would definitely recommend this book as well as the ones that are connected to it. Trust me you will fall in love with them as I did.

Just when the three think they have figured out what they need to do, a surprise visitor comes along and threatens to destroy any progress Sky, Hardy, and Emry may have made.

Can Sky, Hardy, and Emry come together? The fate of all paranormals relies on just that. However, as everyone knows, choices come with consequences, and some consequences can have devastating effects..

ISBN: B06XF4GX8Y

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Sky is my favorite character in the series. He is opinionated, snarky and all around sarcastic. When Hardy and Sky come to a head in an argument the goddess Selene has had enough of the bickering and sends the three mates away from the others with none of their shifter abilities.

I found it intriguing that Emry and Hardy had to learn to rely on their human selfs instead of relying on their abilities to help. Sky was used to this already. The surprise visitor and his revelations took me by surprise.

Intriguing read and a great addition to the series.

Highly recommended.

“Our greatest hit is a love song I wrote for my bandmate. And he has no idea.”

Messy-haired, soulful-eyed, off-kilter lyricist Les Graves holds tight to the hedonist’s credo of consumption in every avenue of life. He has trouble staying still, trouble staying sober, trouble turning down a good time—but put a pen in his hand, and he’ll set a page on fire.

Music was Evan Porter’s ticket out of the backwater mud puddle he was born in, the passion keeping him warm as he busked on street corners, fueling him through a dead-end bartending job. Every chord, every song, every ounce of sweat has been devoted to making Porter & Graves a success. He’s the level-head, the quiet maestro, the seatbelt that keeps Les from flying too far out of control. And he’s getting pretty tired of playing savior.

Their chemistry onstage is electric, but offstage it’s another story.

Angst, snark, and nuclear levels of unresolved sexual tension combust in this tale of two rockers, a handful of secrets, a bombed album, and a publicity nightmare thrown in a remote cabin with one shot at redemption. Can Evan and Les find harmony or will they—and their music career—go down in flames?

Dedicated is a 92k standalone bisexual friends-to-lovers romance that also plays on the fake relationship trope, contains a cockblocking greenhouse, really poor decisions involving social media, and a borderline over-the-top HEA.

It’s never too late for a second chance at love… or is it?

Rayne Sadler left the tiny town of Holiday Pines and his childhood sweetheart, Emilio Rives, to make a name for himself in the world of interior design. For twelve years, he never looked back. Now he has the successful career he wanted, but no one to share his life.

Emilio isn’t happy when Rayne returns to Holiday Pines to renovate the local playhouse. The town wants to stimulate the failing tourist industry, but Emilio has no interest in reviving the ashes of his relationship with Rayne.

Yet shared memories and experiences are powerful things. As the playhouse is restored to its former glory, the friendship between Rayne and Emilio slowly returns as well, and their chemistry is as powerful as ever. Rayne has designs on Emilio’s heart, and he sets out to prove it. Will the magic of Christmas thaw Emilio’s heart, or will it remain as cold as mountain snow?

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Neutral Zone is the charming Christmas novella by RJ Scott and VL Locey which is the seventh book in the Harrisburg Railer’s series. This is one of those books where it is essential that you read the previous books in the series (all six of them are fantastic but Poke Check is definitely my favorite).

In this book we are back to the story of Tennant Rowe and Jared Madsen, the original couple that started it all for the Harrisburg Railers. The event that leads to Tennant having to find his way back to the ice actually happened in the first book of a spin-off series featuring Jared’s son in college, Owatonna U. For the actual details of the events you need to read Ryker (Owatonna U 1) as it isn’t rehashed in a great deal of detail in this novella. Instead, this book is about healing and love with a dash of Christmas frivolity.

Ten and Mads are a wonderfully loving couple that have dynamite chemistry together, but they also have to much heart as well. They compliment each other so well and it is obvious in this book. Not only do the guys have to go through one of the hardest times any person could go through, but they also have to deal with a house full of Rowe’s at Christmas. Ten’s brothers are loud and rowdy and they inject more depth into a relatively simple story.

This novella is essential reading for fans of the Railers series. I am totally looking forward to 2019 when we get more from the Railers. Especially in February where we go back into the lives of sweet, giant Russian Stan, and this blonde Adonis, Erik. For those unfamiliar with the series, I know there are a lot of fans of MM that love sports, particularly hockey, and if you haven’t read I reckon you’d love this novella (as well as the rest of the series).

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I loved Raven and Tal in this story. They were close as could be and got even closer. The story was slow and focused a lot on the romance of the couple. I would have liked more action as opposed to romance but that’s just me.

The thing that confused me was there were references mentioned about using modern things yet the story is focused as older than that so I did not know what to make of it except that maybe they utilized modern inventions yet still had an old world feel to the story.

Aside from that I enjoyed the story with it’s dragons and riders very much and all it’s entertaining qualities.

Great read.
