Herc’s Mercs Collection Vol III

Ari McKay

No matter where in the world they have to go, the men of Hercules Security are ready to kick ass, take names, and, above all, save lives. Putting themselves in harm’s way is second nature to these men, and they’ll do whatever it takes to protect the innocent. Unfortunately the cost of such bravery is often brutally high, and sometimes the price a hero must pay isn’t always obvious…

Hunter Callahan loved his job as an explosives expert, but when a seven-year-old boy walks into camp wearing a suicide vest, the explosion that rocks Hunter’s world leaves him with wounds too deep to see with the untrained eye. Payne “Pita” Gibson is the only one who stands a chance of saving Hunter from self destruction, but doing so means Payne must share private facets of his own life. Could his unusual form of therapy not only help Hunter, but also win his heart? Pushing Hunter’s limits so hard is a test of Payne’s own strength of will — but everyone knows that it’s No Pain, No Gain.

When Joe Morrissey returns home from a traumatic mission, he never expects to discover that his longtime partner and lover, Brian Finnegan, has fallen in love with someone else. Even though he wants Finn to be happy, Joe finds it difficult to share his lover with Drew Martin. But when fallout from Joe’s recent mission puts Finn in danger, Joe must work with Drew to save Finn’s life. With everything he holds dear at risk, Joe is pushed to the breaking point — and Drew must step in to help put him back together. As Drew develops feelings for Joe as well, can Joe open his heart to the possibility of there being Room For One More?

Recipe For Romance

by

Ari McKay

Four couples, four different stories — and one spicy Recipe for Romance from author Ari McKay!

Welcome to Montgomery House, Charleston’s finest restaurant. When you walk in the front doors of the stately former mansion, you’ll be surrounded by true Southern charm. Owner Rhys Montgomery will personally welcome you, while the tantalizing scents of Executive Chef Stephen Pierce’s latest culinary masterpiece linger in the air. Enjoy a walk in the gardens or an elegant meal in the dining room, as you watch the love stories play out around you…

Bay Leaves and Bachelors — Clay Turner’s heart was broken by a wealthy man who said he was boring. When rich, outgoing restaurateur Rhys Montgomery sets his sights on the quiet academic, drawn in by Clay’s intelligence and sex appeal, he finds he has an uphill battle to win Clay’s trust. Can Rhys burrow his way into Clay’s heart, or will Clay’s insecurity become a wall between them that not even true love can break down?

Fennel and Forgiveness — Seven years ago, Max Boyd broke Darius Cooper’s heart. Darius wanted a commitment, and Max wanted to focus on his career in Georgia’s television industry. Their ten year difference in age and experience tore them apart, but fate throws them back together when Max arrives at the Montgomery House, where Darius now works. Will Southern Wedding Belles bring them a second chance for love or is Darius’s trust too shattered for Max to heal? 

Ginger and Gentlemen — Ian Pierce has lived in his older brother Stephen’s shadow his entire life, always feeling second best. His best friend, Matt Davis, is the only person he trusts to be on his side. Despite being in dire financial straits, Ian wants to refuse Stephen’s request to film an episode of Mouth of the South at Ian’s restaurant, but the bonus money offered in the contract is too much to resist. He accepts without knowing the hefty bonus comes from Matt, not the production company. Will Ian feel betrayed by the one person he trusts above all others when he finds out, or will Matt’s desire to help Ian succeed even at his own financial risk take them from friends to lovers at last?

Cinnamon and Seduction — Chef Stephen Pierce has talent and a determination to succeed that is matched only by his fierce temper and prickly personality. Yet his long-suffering personal assistant, Robert Logan, has carried a torch for Stephen since the day they met. Everyone around Montgomery House knows Robert is in love with Stephen — everyone, that is, except Stephen himself. Can Rhys, Clay, Darius, Max, Ian, and Matt find a way to make Stephen see that Robert is the perfect man for him, or will even Robert’s legendary talent for matchmaking fail to win him the man he loves?

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Quenched in Blood is the third book in Ari McKay’s Asheville Aracana series. If you’ve not read the previous books in this series, you won’t be able to follow with a great deal of the plot, as it is an ongoing story that started way back in book 1. To be honest I had to go back and reacquaint myself with the previous books as I had forgotten some of the details and found myself a little muddled at first.

I was really looking forward to this book, after falling in love with Eli and Arden and then with Whimsy and Harlan

I couldn’t wait to see what was in store for Arden and Whimsey’s best friend, Julian.

Julian is your typical brooding, loner vampire. He is best friends with Arden, who has known him 300 years, and who later introduced Julian to Whimsy. They were not only Julian’s only true friends, aside from the people that he knew professionally in the business of demon hunting (which obviously has a high mortality rate), but they were also his lovers when he needed physical touch and pleasure. However, that all changed when Arden, a half elf, and Whimsy, a mage, found their mates. In their individual stories, both friends worried for Julian and his loneliness.

The ongoing story of this series is the rise in possessed shifters and demons being summoned to earth, which could be apocalyptic unless the small group of paranormals in Arcana figure out how to find the artifact that could save them all. The only problem is that this could mean the death of some much loved characters. Julian who knows more than a thing or two about what’s they are dealing with, meets Thomas in the pursuit for clues.

Thomas comes from a long line of demon hunters who descended from an angel. However, he had no clue about any of this. His parents had died and recently his grandfather had died as well. When Julian arrives at the failing family farm where Thomas lives, Thomas’ entire world had changed. Now Thomas dives into a world of demons and training to fight demons. Julian is his teacher and the two of the find that they have some pretty hot chemistry quite quickly. Julian is reticent to let Thomas is but that is all part of his charm and is half the drama of the story.

That was a wonderful end (pretty sure it’s the end) to the series. Julian has shaped up into a fantastic character, who is so much deeper than the brooding vampire that he had first presented. He has a lot on his mind and is wicked intelligence. Thomas is also a great guy to get to know, the only thing is that his character didn’t develop quite so deeply as I had hoped he would. However, together both guys are dynamite. I really loved reading this story, fans of paranormal fiction, those that have read this series will love this story.

Quenched In Blood

(Asheville Arcana 03 / Dreamspun Desire 32)
by

Ari McKay

Will love mean rebirth… or death?

Vampire Julian Schaden has been warning the Asheville Paranormal Council of an impending demonic incursion for more than two decades. Over the past two years, he and his friends have fought as hard as they can with little help, since Micah Carter, the demon hunter who should have led them, shirked his responsibility and then perished.

Desperate for anything that might aid the fight, Julian enters the Carter property and finds something he never dared hope for: young Thomas Carter, the heir to a long line of demon hunters.

Thomas knows nothing about the supernatural world. But the prospect of a real life, outside the sheltered, isolated farm where he grew up, calls to him, and the idea of fighting the Unholy feels right.

Julian agrees to train Thomas, but he struggles against an unexpected, unwanted attraction. Thomas is too young and innocent to get involved with Julian, but opposites attract, and this is one battle Julian seems fated to lose. But a prophecy from a dying mage comes with a bleak warning: the upcoming battle will claim Thomas’s life. To keep his home and friends safe, Julian may have to sacrifice the only love he’s ever known.

Author: Ari McKay

Genre: Contemporary

Length: Novel (206 pages)

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (6th November 2018)

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

Blurb: All hands on deck for a shipboard romance—with a secret.

Like his cousins, Devin Walker aspires to be a chef, but he wants to indulge his wanderlust while feeding his customers, and working a cruise ship seems like the solution. Since he can’t find an opening in the kitchen, he’s happy to start out in a position behind the bar.

While onboard Poseidon’s Pearl, Devin is assigned to shepherd a visiting executive. Paul Bailey is quiet and unassuming, and a car accident that cost him his leg also shattered his confidence. He doesn’t think he’s attractive to other men anymore, and Devin is eager to show him just how wrong he is. Paul has a surprising secret that might sink their passionate affair before it even leaves port.

ISBN: 978-1-64080-523-1

Product Link: Dreamspinner | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Seeking Solace is the third book in Ari McKay’s series The Walker Boys. It isn’t essential that you read the previous books, though it would probably make life easier when one of the MCs, Devin Walker, talks about his family back home in Buffalo Lick, Texas. It was also pretty damn cool that we saw the brief reappearance of Jake and Beau from book 1.

Much like the previous two books, Seeking Solace is a sweet and simple romance at heart. Of course, there is a good dose of drama, mostly fueled by miscommunication and running away from one’s problems, but it is a fun and adorable story where the chemistry between the two MCs is completely believable. At the same time, it makes me want a Paul Mercer all of my own (seriously, dude, where are you IRL?)

The story is about Devin Walker, one of the famous Walker boys from Buffalo Lick, Texas. Unlike his many cousins, he had it a little tougher time growing up when people out of town hurled racial abuse at him. Luckily, the locals couldn’t say anything about Devin being part Native-American with a pack of cousins who would not take any shit from anyone about one of their own. Like many others in family, he has the cooking bug. He wants to be a chef but before he can get there, Devin is working as a bar tender on a cruise ship, where he meets Paul Bailey.

The only thing is Paul Bailey is Paul Mercer. Paul is using his mother’s maiden name so that the workers don’t realize that he is in fact the heir of the cruise line company. He just wants to be seen as another exec who has to spend time on ship before settling into a job at head office. Devin becomes Paul’s staff liaison and the two quickly develop a friendship that becomes something a lot more meaningful.

The only problem is, is that when Devin discovers Paul’s true surname, he feels betrayed and goes back to the only place he knows to recover. Paul is confused why he didn’t see Devin and again and when he discovers what has happened he is determined and sweet enough to take the biggest risk.

These guys are well suited. Their chemistry is strong but there is something deeper to it than their physical attraction, which does bring in something of an instalove aspect to the book. This is the perfect escape book for a relatable and relatively uncomplicated romance. Fans of the previous books in the series or fans of Ari McKay or people that simply love the romance and sappiness that comes from many Dreamspun Desire books, you won’t be disappointed. For anyone else, if you’re into simple and sweet romances then this is the book for you.

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.

Product Link: Dreamspinner Press | Amazon US | Amazon UK

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.

Length: Novella (158pgs)

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖 3.75 Hearts

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?

ISBN: B078J4LQ14

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

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.

Blurb: Mercs rush in where angels fear to tread…

Lee Albright is a photojournalist who loves traveling and the challenge of his job, but when he’s asked to shoot a calendar for charity, he can’t resist — especially since the models are the men of Hercules Security, some of the sexiest hunks he’s ever seen. Things get even better when he meets Mr. July, Geo Kensei, and the instant spark of attraction between them quickly bursts into an all-consuming flame.

Geo is exactly the kind of intense, dominating top Lee needs to fulfill all his fantasies, while Lee’s sensitivity and artistic soul tempt Geo to bind the gorgeous man to him with more than just ropes.

Unfortunately their careers force them to part ways, though they’re both anxious for a quick reunion. But in the midst of a war-torn city they meet again, and now Geo, the merc everyone calls “Saint”, must use every tool and skill he possesses to get both Lee and his client out of danger, while a frightened and confused Lee has a hard time finding the comfort he needs in Geo’s cold, hard pragmatism. Geo’s intense focus on the mission is all that’s keeping the three of them alive, but will it also end up costing him any chance to be with Lee?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Lee was hired by Cade to photograph his men and to turn it into one sexy looking calendar. It was quite funny as the boyfriends or husbands were the ones to give ideas on how the pictures needed to look. That was until Geo, he had ideas that made Lee hot. A few nights of sweet and hot sex was a few of them. He didn’t know where he stood though, then all hell broke loose. Stuck in the middle of a war zone with people dying all around him. Leave it to him to find the sexy man of his dreams in the middle of it. Thankfully Geo also saved his ass.

Geo had wanted more than just a few nights with the sexy photojournalist, lots more. Then sent to protect and rescue those from a war zone leads him into places he had not expected. He turned all feelings off when on the job, but he had not expected to protect the man he was falling for. He just hadn’t known how to turn his feelings back on in a situation like that. Thankfully Ellen had a few ideas to help him out.

I have to say that the cover was a bit dull and no flash to it, which made me wonder about the story. Then I realized it was sex and kinky, then danger and death, then back to sex and kinky. It felt more like a porn story with the danger added in. It didn’t really do the story justice in my eyes. Had the sex happened after the danger then maybe it would have felt better. Also the connection between the guys didn’t really seem to have the heat and passion like it should have. Don’t get me wrong it was hotter than hell but seemed to be missing something.

Other than those issues this is one hell of a story. I truly liked it although not enough to read it more than once. I liked the idea of body guards and men in uniform, not to mention a man who carries a weapon. Makes the heat rise even more.

And soonest our best men with thee do go…

It has been five hundred years since Antonio de Barajas, one of the oldest surviving theriomorphs, lost his mate at the hands of his worst enemy. But Gaia never revealed the whole truth about Raphael’s fate, and Antonio is shocked when Raphael arrives to train Evan St. John and Adam Carson as true Dark Guardians. Yet the man who returns after so long is not the same man Antonio once loved. The hard and lonely life as Gaia’s hunter has changed Raphael almost as much as his lost memories of Antonio and the love they once shared.

Thou art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men…

Antonio must work with the stranger who wears his lover’s face, and while Raphael is welcomed by most of the team, one member sees his return as a threat to his own place in Antonio’s life. But Thrace has allied himself with terrorists who possess a weapon of mass destruction. Now the theriomorphs and Dark Guardians must work together in a race against time to discover Thrace’s plan. Even as Antonio and Raphael are irresistibly drawn to one another, Antonio risks losing far more than his heart this time. If he and his team fail in their mission, millions will die, for Thrace will stop at nothing to destroy Gaia once and for all

Review: What a story. I am going to be careful with my review and try not to give away any spoilers.

The Guardians have their hands trying to thwart another plan. Elizabeth and her Sire Thrace set plans in motion that they think will help their cause.

Antonio gets the biggest shock in this story when someone he thought was lost comes back but with no memory. My heart broke for Antonio for all that he has been through thinking all was lost. Yes, I understood the reasoning but felt there could have been a better way at the same time.

There is a lot going on in this wonderfully written story. It has plenty of suspense and tender moments in between. I was truly enthralled from start to finish in this showdown. I loved everything about the story and it’s characters brought the story to life with a great cast.

Fantastic read. Highly recommended.

Blood Bathory: Absence of the Sun by Ari McKay

Title: Blood Bathory: Absence of the Sun

Series: The Guardians of Gaia 02

Author: Ari McKay

Genre:  Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Horror

Length: Novel (278pgs)

Publisher: Ari McKay (June 4, 2018)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 4 1/2 Hearts

Blurb: Tyger tyger, burning bright…

As theriomorphs in the service of Gaia, Tyr Gustavson and his lover Aaron fought against the vampires aiding the Third Reich during WWII. But even the fierceness of Tyr’s tiger form couldn’t save Aaron from being torn apart when a mission went horribly wrong. Lost in his pain, Tyr remained feral until he was unwillingly recalled to Gaia’s service seventy years later.

In the forests of the night…

When fighter pilot Adam Carson’s plane was shot down, he thought the worst that could happen was being sent to a Nazi prison camp. Little did he know there were other monsters in the shadows, and one of them wanted to claim him. But refusing Elizabeth Bathory had a price. Adam was turned against his will and trapped in a coffin as punishment for his resistance.

What immortal hand or eye…

While hunting ghouls, Tyr and his colleagues discover Adam’s prison. Believing he could be an asset, Marielle Du Lac frees him. Adam joins the team and is drawn to Tyr, despite Tyr’s hatred of vampires. When Tyr rejects Adam out of fear, Adam accepts a suicidal mission to find Thrace, the original nosferatu. If their desperate plan works, the theriomorphs could destroy not only Elizabeth, but the sire of all vampires as well. But if it fails, they could unleash a force leading to the destruction of them all… and perhaps of Gaia herself.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Adam Carson is taken prisoner after his pane is shot down. Only to be taken to Elizabeth during a transport where he’s turned. After the turnng he’s put in a coffin where he stays for a long time. Tyr has been feral and grieving since losing his other half. Now many years later he’s approached with a task to locate Elizabeth.

I loved Adam and Tyr. Tyr grief stricken even now and Adam who finds himself drawn to Tyr. But this story is not all romance and flowers. There is still the ongoing hunt to find Elizabeth and do away with her. Suspenseful and mysterious this story takes you on an adventure where all is not as it seems. The characters are intriguing and fascinating.

Even though some are highly questionable in their actions they all added that special element to bring the story into the light. I truly enjoyed this story and looking forward to reading more.

Great read.
