Blurb: Morgan Murray is an easy, fun-loving guy. He excels at being a soldier, but never wanted more out of life. Somehow, he ends up in a position of authority on Dru’s new ship, the Blue Sparrow. Now he has to deal with what he dreads most. Responsibilities. Dru and her crew are given the task of finding Wyatt Morrick and telling him about his father’s death. Along the way, Morgan soon learns that responsibility can be painful, difficult, and frightening. It can also lead to something very special.

Dr. Wyatt Morrick is in trouble. Big trouble. He and his medical crew are stuck on a planet under attack. He may not be a soldier, but he has patients and friends to worry about. With very few supplies left, something has to give for them to survive. The whole planet’s future is at stake and he is stuck hiding in a cave.

When Morgan saves Wyatt and his friends, the two men are given a gift, each other. Their love can’t stop the Concord, though, and someone has to. Morgan has to grow and accept his responsibilities, and Wyatt has to move on from his father’s death. That death just happens to be a little more complicated then Wyatt expected.

Author’s Note: 55,000+ words. This is a m/m love story with no angst and no cheating, just a HEA. There is lots of action, sex, mpreg, and a few potty mouths involved in the story. 18+ readers only, please. It is also the third book in a series that is best read in order. Read “The Mercenary’s Mate,” and “The General’s Mate” first!

Review: So much happens in this story as Wyatt and Morgan come to terms with different things going on their lives. There are twists and turns around every corner as you traverse through this exciting story. Many characters make an appearanceΒ as book progresses.

I liked that we found out what happened to Morgan. Trying to fend off attacks while getting closer is no easy feat for Morgan and Wyatt. I liked the added details into both men.

Entertaining and fascinating. Great read.

Leti Ando and Will Hackett are certain about one thing in all the galaxy. They love one another. Now that they are mated, it’s time to meet Hack’s parents and settle into their new home. In a normal courtship, the two would spend time getting to know one another and reveling in their love. Normal isn’t what they get.

Leti struggles to understand the artifact Dr. Morrick left them, but what he’s discovering is unbelievable and completely frightening. If his theories are true, then the entire galaxy is at risk. Meanwhile, he tries to adjust to Charybdis Station, deal with his parents, and worse of all, learn to cook. Luckily he has friends, old and new, to help him.

Hack comes home to Charybdis Station, expecting a break from the hectic adventures of the past few months. What he gets are changes, more responsibilities, and a war with the Concord. He’ll deal with it, though. All he has to do is look around him to understand why it’s time to fight back.

Together, the new couple must learn to stand together, to accept and support one another. Their happiness isn’t the only thing at risk.

Review: Leti and Will travel to meet Will’s family. There is no shortage of laughter as well as tense scenes to grab your attention.

I liked that Leti was concerned about the artifact and that Will understood his concerns.

Many things happen throughout to make and interesting addition and read in the series.

Good read.

Blurb: Welcome to the mercenary ship, The Blue Solace:

Leti Ando needs off planet and fast. He has a best friend and a new half-sister to rescue, and he needs to be sneaky about it. Unfortunately sneaky isn’t really his thing. With the help of a friend, Leti and his menagerie, along with his two companions, stow away aboard a mystery ship. Little does he know that The Blue Solace belongs to the infamous mercenary, Captain Will Hackett, a man he’ll come to love with everything inside him.

Will has been in a bitchy ass mood for the past six months. He’s restless and grumpy, but doesn’t know why. He knows he needs something and he can’t find it, but his crew are out of patience and insist on some R &R back home at Charybdis Station.

Then Hack finds a stow away angel and everything changes. Leti is his mate and he’ll do anything to keep him safe and happy, even smile.

The galaxy’s not a safe place, though, and The Blue Solace has a job to do: pick up a renowned scientist and his mysterious artifact. Then get them safely back to Charybdis Station. Hack and Leti don’t realize their romance story is about to get hijacked by Concord mercenaries. Their love is easy, it happens just like that. Staying alive and keeping the galaxy safe? That’s a little harder.

There is lots of action, sex, mpreg, and a few potty mouths involved in the story. 18+ readers only, please. It is also the first of two books about this specific couple.

Review: Leti and his many pets, sister and travel companion stow away aboard a mercenary ship to get away from his father. The mercenary captain has been irritating and grumpy but not knowing why until he meets his mate Leti that is a stowaway.

Many antics take place as the many exotic animals are taken over by various crew members and everyone finds a place. I liked the way the story progressed but have to confess that I was a bit put off by how nice a mercenary captain was in this story. I was expecting him to be a bit more gruff not happy all the time.

Other than that it was an entertaining story.

Good read.
