Blurb: Just a little Love Bite: After getting out from under his mother’s thumb, a young man fears he traded one taskmaster for another.

Raphael Corsair didn’t understand his brother’s sudden desire to couple with some huge black guy. Still, staying with Giles at the Montana cattle ranch gave him the opportunity to escape from under his mother’s thumb. Lenora Corsair was dominating and controlling, and Raphael would do anything to get away from her, even learn how to ride a horse and rope cows. To his surprise, the ranch’s owners offered him an office position. The only disconcerting aspect came in the form of big, handsome Kase Corrocus. The ranch hand made no bones about the fact that he was interested in Raphael. Except, Raphael didn’t consider himself gay. Then why did his prick get hard any time he was near the disconcerting man? On top of that confusion, why couldn’t his mother leave him alone?

Review: Each book in A Loving Nip collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. In fact I would recommend reading the very first series that leads you to this one. Wolves of Stone Ridge is the starter that many different series branched off, so I would start with that one first. There are about five different series, so you will definitely be entertained.

I came across Charlie when she wrote her very first book for the Wolves of Stone Ridge series and never looked back. You will meet a group of alpha that want the love of their mates. They live many centuries and their mates make their lives better and a bit interesting. Most of the time they have their serious tones but there is quite a bit of humor mixed in with them that make them even more fascinating for me. Each story will have danger, excitement, adventure, and a touch of kink to them that will keep your attention the whole time, like it does for me.

Raphael decided to stay at the ranch where his brother made his home at. He couldn’t see what the big deal was, give him a fancy coffee shop anytime. However there was one man on the ranch that might just change his mind. To bad Raphael is not gay.

Kase is one hell of a paranormal who has just found his mate. Now he just has to change the man’s mind. Things are going to get real interesting. I love how Charlie puts together a book that will draw you in and keep you captivated all the way to the end. Charlie has become one of my favorite authors, and I am glad to see that it will never change. This is one book I would recommend.

Blurb: Just a Little Love Bite: A long-awaited-for vacation ends in disaster, forcing one man to make the ultimate life and death choice.

Eric Young and Daren Creston met when both attended a pride parade in Denver with friends. They’d immediately hit it off. Three months later, city-dwelling Eric moved in with small-town living Daren, and they made their home in Colin City. Seven years later, they are still very much in love. After years of saving, Eric and Daren head to a dude ranch for a little sun, fun, and sexy cowboy roleplay in the bedroom. The place has amazing reviews, is run by vampires, and was recommended by their wolf shifter buddies. After a tragic riding accident leaves Daren’s life hanging perilously by a thread, Eric is willing to do anything to save his lover. Death, one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, hears Eric’s cries. His interest is piqued. When Death makes the pretty human an offer–the price, Eric and Daren’s souls–will Eric take it? And if he does, will Daren ever be able to forgive him?

Review: Each book in the A Loving Nip 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 story is branched off from several series and I would start with book one in the Wolves of Stone Ridge series.

Eric and Daren have been together for quite sometime. They were a truly beautiful couple and so very much in love. They had decided to take a vacation that was ran by vampires, oh boy cowboys. Then something bad happened and it would cost Daren his life, that is until Death steps in. He offers Eric a way to save Daren and damn if he doesn’t take it. Death has finally found two men he might just fall in love with. To top it off, one of his ancient demons was missing and they were going to need help.

Charlie Richards became a favorite of mine awhile back and I am always on the look out for when she gets a book out. I wasn’t to sure about whether I would like this book or not, basically the blurb made me think of a different out for this book. However I was glad to see that it was perfect in every way. Action packed, danger filled, hot sexy times with three going at it, adventure and so very much more is what is given in this story. As usual it caught my attention and kept it all the way to the end. It gave me everything I could ask for in a story. Let me say death never looked so good.

I had quite a bit of fun reading this and I can guarantee that it is one of those stories that will be read many times over. I would definitely recommend it and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

Blurb: While out on assignment to collect a human’s soul, Lindemere catches the scent of his amina, his soul, the person meant to be his reward for a thousand years of service to his master, the Horseman of Death. Distracted, he ends up in a trap meant for a gargoyle. While Lindemere could have easily gotten away, he decides to play along in hopes of getting a chance to speak with and perhaps woo his human. Before he even has the opportunity to learn the sweet-smelling man’s name, Lindemere’s master comes for him. During the course of the fight, Lindemere’s amina is injured, so he takes him to the demon realm to heal…and also in the hopes of beginning their bond. When the human wakes, Iago reveals that he considers paranormals selfish and prideful, an elitist race, and they should share their secrets of healing and longevity with mankind. Can Lindemere discover the source of Iago’s suppositions and find a way to change his mind, or will Iago refuse his suit in protest of what he considers paranormals’ slight against humanity?

Review: Each book in the 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 particular story is also tied to the Wolves of Stone Ridge. Kontra’s Menagerie, and A Paranormal’s Love series. I would start with the Wolves of Stone Ridge series and go from there if you want the full impact.

Iago was led to believe that all paranormal’s were selfish. He couldn’t believe that they never would help the human’s with healing or shifter abilities. He had always been told this but never once expected it to be lies. That was until he found out that he was a mate but the fear was still there.

Lindemere was a demon for Horseman of Death. After one thousand years he was granted a gift. A gift of a mate, although he might want to rethink it. He had to find away to get his mate to understand their ways. Although he had not expected to fall into a trap meant for another to find that mate. Life has a funny way of working out.

I have loved this author’s work ever since her first book came out. However I did have a bit of trouble getting into this story. It just felt off a bit and I never did figure out why. I also am not a fan of the way the stories in, there is so much more that could be added to them to make them truly stand out. Other than that they are a fun way of making the day go by faster.

I enjoyed reading this story and would definitely recommend it. I can also guarantee that these books are books that can and will be read many times over.

Review: Each book in A Loving Nip 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 story is a branch off of Wolves of Stone Ridge, so I would start with that series first. There are several series that are connected to this series as well.

I came across this author when her first book in the Wolves of Stone Ridge series came out and from that point on I knew that she would become a favorite. The worlds she creates are unique and keep my attention from the moment I start reading. The characters are sexy, fierce, tempting and will fight for what they believe is right. The stories are fascinating and give the reader everything they could ask for in a story.

Allen has always loved being a police officer and never wanted to give it up. However he has been hiding one big secret that doesn’t work to well around other officers. He had been doing a good job at hiding it, that is until he meets Patrick at a crime scene.

Patrick was a sexy as vampire that could cook and dance like a god. He loved preparing meals for his friends and family. He was just missing one thing, and that was his beloved. Then when he stopped a robbery at the store, he met the one fated for him. To bad his beloved was in the closet.

I have always loved Charlie’s books and this was just another amazing story. It gave me everything I could want in a story and so much more. I had a lot of fun reading it and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. This is one of those stories that will be read more than once.

Pascal and his brothers were rescued from their old lives and brought to live among a vampire coven.  It was definitely a change for them, to live with no fear.  The ranch is a nice place to heal, but Pascal is a bit different.  He is learning that he is definitely a submissive, but is afraid to let the others know.  That is until his mate shows up.

Abner is one of the few who cannot be tranced by a vampire.  He found that out the hard way.  Now he is let into the secret of the paranormal world and is fine as long as no one wants a snack.  He is interested in a bit of fun with the dingo, but nothing to serious.  Too bad for him, he is a mate.   

I love how Charlie puts together a book that will draw you in and keep you captivated all the way to the end. Charlie has become one of my favorite authors, and I am glad to see that it will never change. This is one book I would recommend.

Mathe had waited for the coven’s second to bring home several dingoes’ that had been hurt and rescued. His second had found his mate, but it would seem that Mathe has also found his. His little mate, was in fact the brother of the mate to the coven’s second. He was over joyed but knew that there were going to be a few issues to deal with, and he was going to show his little mate he was his.

Julian had been used for sex by his pack, as was his brothers. Now they were safe but it didn’t mean he wasn’t scared. Now here he was surrounded by vampires, and mated to one. Now if only he could remember to stay away from the back in of a cow.

I love how Charlie puts together a book that will draw you in and keep you captivated all the way to the end. Now I have to admit that Toni is not one of my favorites but he does come a long way.

Tate discovers it’s so much more when the scent of a reclusive leopard shifter’s blood calls to him. Somehow, he must convince the pretty kitty known as Psion, that staying in human form longer than it takes to open and close a door can be extremely pleasurable and beneficial to both of them.

Unfortunately, that also reveals a new problem. Can Tate get Psion past his fear of blood so he can claim him?

Review: This is the eighth book in A Loving Nip.

When asked for volunteers to go to Alpha Dorian’s to help protect shifters that had been abused vampire Tate doesn’t hesitate to agree to the mission. Once there he meets sexy Psion, a clouded leopard shifter.

Psion has been held captive in a cage most of life by witches since he was twelve. Finally rescued he is learning things about his new world when he meets the handsome Tate. Psion has a problem with blood as a result of his captivity. I loved that Tate tried his best to ease Psion’s fears.

Most of the book is about these two getting to know one another with a little action thrown in from rogue shifters threatening the pack.

Although I enjoyed this well written story, I felt it was rushed and the actions scenes were too short.

Cassium Jones is closing in on his fourth century mark and over the years has held many roles, from farmer to soldier to vampire enforcer. Now, he’s ready to settle down in moderate relaxation…if working a cattle ranch can be considered relaxing. He loves the wide open spaces, the fresh clean air, and even tending the animals.

Handling the maintenance and care for the Angus cows in the northern pastures offers plenty of solitude, and he should have been left pretty much alone. Instead, Cassium stumbles upon an injured Angus bull amongst the livestock, and realizes the bull is not only a shifter, but his beloved, his soul mate. Cassium learns Garth has been driven from his herd for disobeying a controlling alpha, leaving behind two young children.

While Cassium is happy to help reunite the bull shifter with his kids, is he ready to take on the role of parent when all he wanted was to retire?

Review: This is the sixth book in A loving Nip series. A wonderful story about Cassium, a vampire, who finds an injured Angus Bull shifter, Garth, mixed with his herd.

I loved how caring and sweet Cassium was to Garth. I was appalled at what some of the members of Garth’s herd did to him. I was also angry at the way Garth’s Alpha ran his herd. It was despicable to say the least.

Garth was so sweet and innocent in most things between males and Cassium slowly showed him the wonders and joys of being with one. Tender moments between these two at times had my eyes watering. Especially when Garth was explaining about his Alpha and how he didn’t believe in mates.

I loved the scenery in this story of wide open spaces, the fresh air and the peaceful surroundings of Cassium’s home. Fantastic read with some hot sex that added a lot of heat to this already amazing story. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

Highly recommended.

Garner Vorzman suspects that his beloved—the other half of his soul—is none other than Brock Sanchez. While everyone considers the human an all-around good guy, he is also a womanizing playboy. Having spent almost one hundred years in the military, Garner draws on his knowledge of strategy. He uses the levity of the coven Christmas party to his advantage and seduces Brock.

Unfortunately, the human runs from their connection. Hoping if he leaves Brock alone he will come to crave what they’d shared, Garner waits for months. He runs out of time when drinking blood from other donors becomes nearly impossible. Angry at the human’s apparent obstinateness, Garner tracks Brock down and issues an ultimatum. Give them one dalliance every other week so Garner can draw the blood he needs, or their one night stand will no longer remain a secret.

If Brock agrees, can Garner turn the strong-arm tactic into something that will win the man’s affection?

Review: Garner, a vampire, finds his beloved in Brock, a human.

However Brock denies his feelings for Garner. Garner is determined to make Brock see they should be together no matter what others think. I loved how Garner gave Brock his space to work things out yet still managed to show up at times to show Brock he’s serious.

Although I understood Brock’s reluctance I felt he was using excuses to keep Garner away due to his own insecurities. But all worked out once Brock realized how much happier he was with Garner. The only gripes I have with this book were the demon being introduced for a very short time then the cliffhanger at the end. I certainly hope the next book will shed more light on the demon and Peter’s disappearance.

Packed full of emotions and tension this book delivers a look into two individuals who are meant to be together with one shying away from the other. Intense at times with an investigation which wasn’t much into the deaths of humans.

Loved it.

Nathan Hanson is still working through the recent changes to his life. When he walks away from Diana, his long-time girlfriend, he comes out to his father, Owen. To his surprise, he learns that Owen is gay, too. Unfortunately, Diana doesn’t want to move on.

When she continues to call him, Nathan changes his phone number. Next, she starts dropping by his work, so he gives her description to his work’s lot security, asking them to keep her out. Nathan even moves into an apartment on the far side of town, near to where his father now lives, but sometimes he still feels like he’s being watched.

When Nathan finally gets up the courage and accompanies a few friends to a gay bar, he just wants to have a little mindless fun to take his mind off his problems…and maybe, finally act on his desires for another man. There, he meets Lexington Paistro, who is handsome, sexy, and into Nathan. He’s also a vampire. Having learned of paranormals when his father bonded with one, it’s not the biting that Nathan fears. It’s the possessiveness. He’s still trying to extricate himself from a woman who thinks she owns him.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I really liked how Lexington, a vampire, talked to Nathan and reassured him considering Nathan’s ex. The thing that was confusing was the way the blurb read I thought Diana would have shown up more than twice in the book though she was mentioned several times. Nathan struck me as insecure which was to be expected after being in a controlling relationship for so long.

Diana seemed psychotic, in the fact that Nathan left her, but she refused to accept it. She definitely had a few marbles loose if you ask me. Her reaction and attitude when she “bumped” into Nathan with his friends seemed obsessive, stalker-ish and delusional.

I loved Lexington’s understanding and wanting to keep Nathan safe no matter what. Great read with hot sex.

Daystrum Striplan, second in command of the Esson vampire coven, knows he’s been distracted the past month or two. He just can’t figure out what tugs at his mind…or rather…whom. Every night Daystrum’s dreams are plagued by a slender male figure with striking blue eyes. When he wakes, his fangs ache with the need to sink them into the man’s column of tanned flesh and taste his blood.

Unfortunately, Daystrum can’t remember where or when—hell, even if—he’s met the man in his dreams. Then, the evening of the coven Christmas party, Daystrum scents the object of his obsession, Korbin Harris. He’s not the only one who notices the human, though. Jaymes, the master of a visiting coven also expresses his interest, and that vampire doesn’t have to beg forgiveness for forgetting their first meeting…a meeting that Korbin remembers.

Can Daystrum earn the forgiveness and affection of his wayward beloved?

Review: Korbin is a smart, intelligent young man in college who volunteers as a big brother to 17-year-old Paul. As he and his friends attend a Christmas party at Adalric’s house, he comes face to face with the vampire, Daystrum, who he can’t get out of his head since he met him. Once Daystrum realizes Korbin is his beloved and that he didn’t recognize him when they first met, he sets out to claim the sexy human before someone else does.

I loved how festive the party was and how in the middle of it Korbin dropped everything to go to help Paul with Daystrum’s aide. I couldn’t believe the accusation that Paul was accused of. But was glad everyone came to support and help him in his time of need.

Fantastic story with a lot of drama and some hot sex between Daystrum and Korbin. I can’t wait to read the next story. Highly recommended.
