Blurb: Into the Paranormal World: While seeking out his brother to resolve family conflict, a gargoyle brought up to be a warrior discovers the opportunity for a little fun in his life.

Kinsey has watched for centuries as his father’s bigoted views tore his family apart. Seeing the rift between his parents grow wider than ever, he does the only thing he can think of to fix it, even knowing it could very well cost him his enforcer position. Sneaking into Falias clutch territory, Kinsey searches for his estranged brother, Conchlin. He finds him at a bowling alley. Once he gets in there, the scent of another quickly distracts him—the human Jimmy. For the first time in Kinsey’s life, he puts his own desires first. With some help from Conchlin, he meets Jimmy and slowly begins to woo him from the shadows. Just when Kinsey prepares to reveal the existence of paranormals and that he’s a gargoyle, his worst fears manifest—his father discovers where he’s been going and beats Kinsey to sharing the truth with Jimmy—terrifying him in the process. To top it off, his father offers Kinsey an ultimatum—stay out of Falias clutch territory forever or be labeled rogue. Can Kinsey find a way to fix the damage done by his father, or will he lose not only his family, but Jimmy as well?

Review: Each book in the A Paranormal’s Love 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 branched off from many different series. I would start off with Wolves of Stone Ridge first.

Kinsey knows his father is truly loosing his mind. It is destroying his parent’s mating and does the one thing that might just get his ass kicked. He goes to his brother Conchlin who is at the Falis clutch. Sneaking in is never a good thing, but he needs to see his brother for help. Then he smells the best smell of all, his mate.

Too bad his father finds him and gives him an ultimatum. Ditch the human and go home or be called a rogue. Man his father is one hell of an asshat. If you want to know what truly happens, even the sexy parts, read the book.

Charlie Richards has always been a favorite author of mine. Lets just say that she is an automatic buy for me. I have a few favorite characters in these books and they seem to always be. Excitement, action, danger and some hot sexy times are just a bit of what you get in this story and so much more. As always my attention was caught and kept through out the story.

However, and there is an however, there is a downside showing up. This story seemed rushed and a bit on the dull side to me. It just didn’t spark the same old same old with me and I missed it. It just felt like something was a bit off with the story. That being said, I still had fun reading it and look forward to reading the next book.

Blurb: Elder Bodb has walked the earth for over a thousand years. All that time, he’s waited patiently for Fate to bring him his mate. When he travels to the Falias clutch to share sentencing information on one of their former members, he catches just the faintest whiff of something…something intoxicating. His mate is finally near. After discovering the smell originated from the brother of a man mated to a gargoyle, Bodb learns that Nicholas Lindson doesn’t know about the paranormal world. To make matters worse, Nicholas is engaged to some socialite in Texas, and the wedding is only a few weeks away. Bodb discovers that’s not the worst thing, though. Nicholas is the heir to a Texas cattle baron empire, and his father is very involved in his life—overly so. Can Elder Bodb figure out how to not only share that paranormals exist and woo Nicholas, but to extricate his human out from under the father’s domineering hand?

Review: Bodb is a very old gargoyle who has been searching for his mate for a very long time. Eleven hundred years he has been on this earth serving his people and as an Elder he has had to do many strange things. This was not one of those times, he was just going to take a small vacation and give Chieftain Maelgwn his news. He had not expected to find his mate but I think he is about to be in more shock then he thought.

Nicholas’s brother is mated to a gargoyle, but our Nick doesn’t have a clue. He is about to get introduced to the paranormal world real fast. He is a human who is a mate to a gargoyle, not what he was expecting. Wonder what he will say to his wife.

I am not really sure where to start with this review. I found myself a bit lost with this one. Our main guy is married to a woman, mated to our sexy gargoyle and living a lie to help his wife. I mean they did go through with the wedding. How the other woman could take it was just off to me. I am sorry but if you love someone you are not going to sit on the burner and take what is given. To me it was all a lie and that is a turn off for me in books. Also it made the females come off as cowards and money hungry, what with wanting her cake and eating it too. Thank god there was no sex between them, what with the females being together. All in the closet so to speak.

Then Nicholas comes off as a very easy going person who is a pushover. He is straight but doesn’t mind a little action from a twink at clubs. He gives in to sex real fast with Bodb and that just didn’t work for me either. You would think he would have been a bit more hell no at first, but nope. Hell he didn’t even bat an eyelash with the paranormal side of it. Bodb goes along with it all which is not what a gargoyle would do but in this book he just caves real fast.

The part about daddy dearest felt like it was just thrown in for a bit more word count.
Charlie has been one of my top five authors of all times, but I hate to say this book did not do it for me. This whole story just was off and didn’t work for me. I hate to say it but this book was definitely not one of my favorites. I just hope the next book comes off a bit easier with not odd ball sections.

Review: Each book in A Paranormal’s Love 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 into many directions so there is a lot of fun out there.

Mitch is a manwhore basically. He is in love with all women, but not in love to stick around. He has known about paranormal’s for quite sometime and enjoys hanging with them. Most of his friends are gay and he is all good there. However he is not gay but is about to find out that he is mated to a gargoyle. A male gargoyle that just won’t take the answer no.

Kardamon is going to have a hard time getting through to Mitch, even with the help of his friends. He will do everything in his power to prove to him that he is his and it will all be good.

First off I am glad that there was a warning about girly parts in it but no actual sex going on, but I didn’t see the warning till it was too late. Also it seems to me that even though in the end they might get it right, it still seems forced to me. I did not care for Mitch nor his attitude at all. He just rubbed me the wrong way. And completely straight with no sign of being into guys is a sure fire way to make the story not smooth to me. I have always loved this author and her work, but this book just about made me throw in the towel, not the whole series, just this book.

This story came off rushed and rocky in more ways then one. I hate to admit that this particular book just didn’t do anything for me.

Review: Each book in A Paranormal’s Love 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. Heat, danger, excitement and a bit of adventure are just a few things you get in these stories.

Baron had made it to being the second of his herd, but then he was found out. He had helped his best friends family escape when his friend had been killed. His alpha was a sadistic asshat that loved to give pain. If it wasn’t for a council Internal affairs investigator, he would probably have been dead soon. Brought to the clutch where Nolan and the others were at, he had a major shock. It would seem the sexy orange gargoyle was his mate.

Conchlin was training to be a medic and was pretty good at it. His first patient turned out to be his mate and that he had not expected. Then his father and brother show up and they bring trouble with them.

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.

Blurb: Into the Paranormal World: Change is never easy, but it is oftentimes worth the painful effort.

Taolma is a young boa constrictor shifter who has recently been reunited with his father after almost two decades apart. He currently lives with a clutch of gargoyles on the outskirts of a small town, but he doesn’t mind. There’s a massive arboretum to sun in and a pond to swim in, plus plenty of trees to climb.

Due to the small town atmosphere, Taolma doesn’t expect to find his mate any time soon. Imagine his surprise, excitement, and disappointment when he walks into a hotel room and discovers his mate. Quinn is slender, muscular, and handsome.

Oh, and he’s a hunter recovering from claw-wounds received by a gargoyle. Taolma hadn’t planned on settling down any time soon, but the pull to mate is undeniable.

Can he figure out how to convince a hunter that not all shifters are evil, come to grips with Fate giving him a mate when so young, and of course convince a man who hates paranormals that they were meant to be together?

Quinn had not only been captured but had been injured when he tried to rescue another hunter. A hunter that did not want rescued. Quinn’s wife and son had been murdered by a vampire and he wanted revenge. After being recruited he helped them capture or kill the paranormals. He just had not expected Taolma.

Taolma had been two years old when his father had been captured by the hunters and sold. His mother and step father took care of him, and when his mom passed away his stepfather helped him try to find out what happened to his father. Now he had been reunited with him and was living with the gargoyles. It would seem he had a mate, a mate that hated paranormals. However the pull to them both, shows them that fate is always right.

It was the perfect story for me and I loved it.

Jeremiah Tully lost his sister when a shifter attacked them while camping with friends. He blames himself…and rogues, believing they are a danger to society. When he finds a group of like-minded people who call themselves hunters, he joins up and spends three years helping them hunt, capture, and sometimes even kill shifters and vampires.

Jeremiah was not like any other hunter he had come across. Even when his little sister had been killed by a shifter, he felt like there were some good out there. It didn’t stop him from being a hunter and searching for those who kill humans though. So during an attack he finds himself up against demons.

However he was wrong in more ways than one. He escapes only to crash his dirt bike and getting injured. Those demons were not demons but gargoyles. He was coming to understand many things, although the fact that he wanted one of them still had him puzzled. What happened to him not being straight was one of them.

Grateman has found his mate, but he needs to show him that not all paranormals are bad. He also needs answers that only his little hunter could give him. Could you imagine his mate’s expression when he not only finds out that males can give birth, but hears one doing so. Talk about a crazy way to live. I love that the mates get pregnant, talk about a plus for me.

This book gave me everything I could ask for in a story and so much more. I just wished that there were more to read, I absolutely hate having to wait for the next story. I loved this one and cannot wait for the next amazing story. I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series. One that I will have to read over and over. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story.

It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. When Charlie puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Blurb: Into the Paranormal World: Even cold-blooded creatures can get a little hot under the collar.

Tristan has never been what someone would call a social guy. Like the alligator, he shares his spirit with, he prefers being alone. Now, after enduring decades of forced isolation as an animal attraction in a curiosity show, Tristan is even more reclusive than ever. He lives mainly in animal form, swimming in the large pond on the gargoyle’s estate.

When he helps kidnap his abuser, Bud Wallice, Tristan decides interrogating the bastard is a great reason to finally interact with others.

Eventually, Bud is reported missing by his wife, and the trail leads to the gargoyle’s estate. Tristan meets Detective Collin DeSoto, who is looking into the disappearance. Tristan immediately recognizes the man as his mate, and while the sex between them is explosive, that’s the only easy thing between them. Collin isn’t out to his incredibly large family, and he doesn’t approve of how Tristan handles Bud.

Can the pair resolve their differences, or will Tristan end up returning to his pond…alone?

Review: Each book in A Paranormal’s Love collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. I love the way Charlie can put together a book that not only fascinates you but draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by Charlie.

There is something about the way that Charlie tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect the ones they love with all that they have. I had a blast reading this story.

Tristan is an albino alligator and had been held captive for some time in a freak circus. He had been kicked out by his family and his alpha for being albino. It wasn’t until they were saved that he got to actually live his life. He wanted to help bring those that wanted to capture, torture, use or kill. His job was not hard, get Bud to give him the answers to his questions. He knew someone would start asking questions about him, but he had not known that the gorgeous detective asking questions was to be his mate.

Collin knew all about shifters, vampires, and gargoyles. He was told to find out the answers about the man missing, but he also knew he could not give them the truth. He had to protect the paranormal world. He had not expected to come across a gorgeous man telling him that he was his mate.

The problem was he was not out, so he had to decide what he truly wanted. And he definitely wanted Tristan.

The dangers were out there, now they just had to protect those they love. When Collin and Tristan get together, it is so damn hot. I have always loved a good paranormal, and Charlie sure can give you some amazing shifter types. I think that this is one of the first books that I have read about an albino alligator. I had a blast reading it that is for sure.

I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the others in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Charlie puts out a book, I am usually there to eat them up. They do have a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a just a touch of humor in them that I love. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book

. I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing and loving.

Zander Wheeler knows they’re out there: shape shifters, vampires, and other things.

Having lost his wife over a year ago, Zander finds himself seduced by a married man. Ashamed, Zander asks his friend Logan McByrne to help him sever ties. Logan agrees, and in doing so, reveals a whole new world to him. Zander learns that his lover is a vampire, which is why he’d become so enamored with him. Then, Logan hooks up with a wolf shifter, and to top it off, a massive winged creature—the gargoyle Geoffrey, according to Logan—is claiming he and Zander are mates.

When Zander demands they all leave him alone, save for Logan, they agree. Still, some sixth sense tells Zander he hasn’t seen the last of Geoffrey. He’s right. When one of his billy goats becomes aggressive, Geoffrey swoops in and saves him. With Geoffrey keeping to the shadows, they begin a dialogue. The more they talk, the more Zander realizes they may not be all that different after all.

Except, he’s already been played by one paranormal. Can he open his heart to another?

Review: This is the tenth book in this series and they should be read in order. It gives you a new romancing couple with each story and an insight into their amazing world. A world that fascinates me and draws me in. A world that I would dream to be in.

I have been a fan of Charlie Richards for quite a long time. In fact, the first story was with the Wolves of Stone Ridge. You meet the gargoyles through the other series. There’s always an intriguing mix of stories set in varying locations and with an assortment of all sorts of character types. Different types of the paranormal world are characters in these amazing stories. Characters that I have to tell you will draw you in and have you falling in love.

Zander had met the paranormal’s in such a way that left him feeling raw and scared. He had been not on lied to by a vampire, but the vampire had used his powers to get what he wanted. Now he was afraid to be near any paranormal, even his own mate. Now here he was being protected by a gargoyle and that man just happens to be his mate. Now all he has to do is to figure out how to overcome his past.

Geoffrey has found his mate, and now all he wants to do is to comfort him and show him that now all of them is bad. When the vampire that made him afraid shows up asking for help, it was all he could do not to kill him. With his mates urging he finds them all in a mess.
However, for me it just seemed to go to fast. It was missing that edge that would make it perfect. However, I still loved this book and cannot wait to get my hands on the next one.

This was a fun read, full of quirky attitudes and steamy sex. Although it has a great plot, the story seems to be more about the characters and the love they have for one another. Charlie has always managed to give her readers that tasty delight. The readers get to know the characters pretty well in the earlier stories so that by the time they get to this story they have already fallen in love with Geoffrey and Zander.

It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. Now normally when it is a paranormal story they usually mate and have sex right away. In this story, you have to wait just a bit to get the full ride.

I would recommend reading this story especially if you love sexy men, gargoyles, excitement, danger, feisty attitudes, and tempting turn ons.

Blurb: Into the Paranormal World: Sometimes going against family leads to better rewards than sticking with them.

After seventeen years in captivity, Caladon O’Hara is freed from his cage by gargoyles. His rescuers take him to their manor, give him a safe place to recuperate, and set him up with a new identity, Caladon Wykert. They also aid Caladon in tracking down information about his son, Taolma. Upon seeing a picture of his son’s face after so long, Caladon goes into mild shock, overwhelmed at seeing him as an adult for the first time.

Nurse Leroy Wilde works part-time at the gargoyle’s mansion. He handles daytime shifts since Perseus, the clutch’s head doctor, has not yet mated and turns into stone during daylight hours. When he spots Caladon through a doorway, he’s quickly smitten by the tall, handsome shifter. Still, Leroy keeps his distance. He’d tried dating an African-American once before, and due to his family’s bigotry, it hadn’t turned out so well.

When Caladon suffers a shock, Leroy is called to help. His mere presence yanks Caladon out of his stupor, only for the shifter to declare they are mates. Leroy is unable to resist the siren call of the mate-pull, and he agrees to a date. He quickly discovers that his family isn’t the only complication…because at the time of Caladon’s kidnapping, he was still married. Mates or not, Leroy refuses to get involved with a married man.

Review: This was an amazing story. Each book in the A Paranormal’s Love Series focuses on a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, we recommend reading the series in sequential order. It keeps me from getting a bit lost in the stories and gives me an insight in to their world. A world that captured my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I love the way each character just mixes with the others. How fast they are to defend what is theirs and what they believe.

Caladon was a boa shifters without a home. Several years ago, he had been abducted leaving behind a wife and two-year-old son. Now saved, he was living among humans, gargoyles, and shifters. However, he always missed his son Taolma.

Finding out that his son was a live, shocked him so much that Leroy was called into check him out. Leroy was a nurse and when he had first seen Caladon in human form he was in lust. Quite a different change from the first time he saw him in his shifter form. A twenty-foot boa would frighten most people. He wanted Caladon but he was afraid. His family had a problem with him being gay, but they would give him trouble for being in love with a black man.

Caladon would do everything in his powers to keep his mate and it would seem his mate would do the same for him. This is a cute story that I absolutely loved. Charlie always gives you characters that come off as someone you would want to meet and hang with. She would give you men that you would fall in love with. This story will capture your attention from the moment you start reading it and will keep it all the way to the end. I loved the way it just flows off the pages.

This is a world that I would love to be in. I would recommend reading this story because it gives you not only two sexy men, a boa shifter but also excitement, passion, quirky friends and a touch of danger.

Separated when Roland was sold and Vane wasn’t, Vane had since been rescued, and now offers the same freedom to Roland.

With the force of Vane’s entire gargoyle clutch behind him, Roland finally feels like he can make a new start. Except, one of the gargoyles claims that they are mates, but Roland can’t sense it, revealing a secret he never wanted exposed.

Tobias is thrilled to discover that Roland is his mate until the lynx shifter denies their bond. When the pretty shifter declares he can’t bond with anyone—and Tobias learns the life-changing reason why—Tobias vows that it doesn’t matter to him. He’ll stand by and care for his mate through any difficulty. His devotion is quickly called into question when dangers from Roland’s past forces Tobias to spend time guaranteeing his mate’s safety instead of spending time with Roland. Can Tobias prove to his mate that he truly wants him and doesn’t consider Roland just another duty?

Review: This is part of a series and they should be read in order. I have always loved Charlie’s stories. She gives you a story that you will not only fall in love with but also want to hear more of them. The characters she gives you are compassionate, loving, and gentle although they have a temper no one would want to mess with. They are also very protective with their mates.

Roland had been a prisoner for over twenty-five years. He was in his Iberian lynx form shown off as if he was a pet. When he was taken at the age of fifteen the people who had him had castrated him. He was terrified and felt ashamed for what had happened to him. It was a time where he had met a gargoyle by the name of Vance. When Vance had been rescued, he had lost his memory, but once he got it back, he sent out help to rescue the young lynx. When he was brought to the clutch of the gargoyles, he found his mate. Although he didn’t know it at the time, because of what had happened to him his body was still like a child. He didn’t recognize the mating bond. But he knew that he wanted to be with Tobias.

Tobias knew right off the bat that Roland was his mate, and at first, he didn’t understand why Roland didn’t realize it. However once he was told what had happened to his mate, he knew he had to be extra careful and tenderer with him. He wanted his mate though. He knew that he was falling in love with him. When danger showed up, his molting happened knowing that his mate was in trouble. He would do anything and everything in his powers to save his mate and keep him safe.

You can feel the love that everyone has for their mates. I wished that human’s had that ability. It would be amazing to have someone care for you so deeply. I loved this story and cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in this series. Charlie has a wonderful gift and I am so glad to have her books in my library. If you love the paranormal worlds, two hot and sexy men, shifters and gargoyle’s, danger and excitement you will love this books. It offers all of that and so much more.

Review: Marty is a human who is attracted to Raymond, even after following him one evening and finding out he wasn’t human.

Once again, Charlie Richard’s has written a book that I knew I would love to have in my library. It is a magical story told in such a way that makes it beautiful and enticing to a reader. I have always loved romance stories and paranormal romance even more. This book has the perfect plot, with love, danger, excitement, and wonder.

Marty is tender and very loving, even though when he is in one of his mood of grumpiness. Raymond is charming, caring with a heart of gold, but he is also scared of his mates reaction to him being a gargoyle. The sex between them is just like them tender and so full of desire and heart. The danger placed on his mate, has Raymond scared, and wants to protect him with everything in him.

When you start to read this story, you will fall in love with Marty and Raymond right off the bat. Raymond comes off really shy and you can’t help wanting to route for him right off from the start. It was well written, with a little twist to the ending as far as their mating goes. I enjoyed this book as well as the whole series and I love having it in my library for future reading.

It is a little shorter than I would have liked and wished it did have a bit more to it, but I loved it all the same.
