Bad Boy’s Bard

(Fae Out of Water 03)
by

E.J. Russell

As far as rock star Gareth Kendrick, the last true bard in Faerie, is concerned, the only good Unseelie is . . . well . . . there’s no such thing. Two centuries ago, an Unseelie lord abducted Gareth’s human lover, Niall, and Gareth has neither forgotten nor forgiven.

Niall O’Tierney, half-human son of the Unseelie King, had never lost a wager until the day he swore to rid the Seelie court of its bard. That bet cost him everything: his freedom, his family—and his heart. When he’s suddenly face-to-face with Gareth at the ceremony to join the Seelie and Unseelie realms, Niall does the only thing inhumanly possible: he fakes amnesia. Not his finest hour, perhaps, but he never revealed his Unseelie heritage, and to tell the truth now would be to risk Gareth’s revulsion—far harder to bear than two hundred years of imprisonment.

Then a new threat to Gareth’s life arises, and he and Niall stage a mad escape into the Outer World, only to discover the fate of all fae resting on their shoulders. But before they can save the realm, they have to tackle something really tough: mending their own broken relationship.

The Druid Next Door

(Fae Out of Water 02)
by

E.J. Russell

Professor Bryce MacLeod has devoted his entire life to environmentalism. But how effective can he be in saving the planet when he can’t even get his surly neighbor to separate his recycling?

Former Queen’s Enforcer Mal Kendrick doesn’t think his life could get any worse: he’s been exiled from Faerie with a cursed and useless right hand. When he’s not dodging random fae assassins in the Outer World, he’s going toe-to-toe with his tree-hugging neighbor. And when he discovers that the tree hugger is really a druid, he’s certain the gods have it in for him—after all, there’s always a catch with druids. Then he’s magically shackled to the man and expected to instruct him in Supernatural 101.

All right, now things couldn’t possibly get worse.

Until a mysterious stranger offers a drunken Mal the chance to gain back all he’s lost—for a price. After Mal accepts, he discovers the real catch: an ancient secret that will change his and Bryce’s life forever.

Ah, what the hells. Odds are they won’t survive the week anyway.

Cutie and the Beast

(Fae Out of Water 01)
by

E.J. Russell

Temp worker David Evans has been dreaming of Dr. Alun Kendrick ever since that one transcription job for him, because holy cats, that voice. Swoon. So when his agency offers him a position as Dr. Kendrick’s temporary office manager, David neglects to mention that he’s been permanently banished from offices. Because, forgiveness? Way easier than permission.

Alun Kendrick, former Queen’s Champion of Faerie’s Seelie Court, takes his job as a psychologist for Portland’s supernatural population extremely seriously. Secrecy is paramount: no non-supe can know of their existence. So when a gods-bedamned human shows up to replace his office manager, he intends to send the man packing. It shouldn’t be difficult—in the two hundred years since he was cursed, no human has ever failed to run screaming from his hideous face.

But cheeky David isn’t intimidated, and despite himself, Alun is drawn to David in a way that can only spell disaster: when fae consort with humans, it never ends well. And if the human has secrets of his own? The disaster might be greater than either of them could ever imagine.

For A Good Time Call

(Bluewater Bay)
by

Anne Tenino & E.J. Russell

Thirty-seven-year-old Nate Albano’s second relationship ever ended three years ago, and since he’s grace—gray asexual—he doesn’t anticipate beating the odds to find a third. Still, he’s got his dog, his hobbies, and his job as a special effects technician on Wolf’s Landing, so he can’t complain—much.

Seth Larson, umpteenth generation Bluewater Bay, is the quintessential good-time guy, content with tending bar and being his grandmother’s handyman. The night they meet, Seth’s looking for some recreational sex to escape family drama. But for Nate, romantic attraction comes before sexual attraction, so while Seth thinks they’re hooking up, Nate just wants to talk . . . genealogy?

Dude. Seriously?

So they declare a “just friends” truce. Then Seth asks for Nate’s help investigating a sinister Larson family secret, and their feelings start edging way beyond platonic. But Nate may want more than Seth can give him, and Seth may not be able to leave his good-time image behind. Unless they can find a way to merge carefree with commitment, they could miss out on true love—the best time of all.

After the disastrous ending of his first serious relationship, Gideon Wallace cultivated a protective—but fabulously shiny—outer shell to shield himself from Heartbreak 2.0. Besides, romance is so not a priority for him right now. All his web design prospects have inexplicably evaporated, and to save his fledgling business, he’s been compelled to take a hands-on hardware project—as in, his hands on screwdrivers, soldering irons, and needle-nosed pliers. God. Failure could actually be an option.

Journeyman electrician Alex Henning is ready to leave Gideon twisting in the wind after their run-ins both on and off the construction site. Except, like a fool, he takes pity on the guy and offers to help. Never mind that between coping with his dad’s dementia and clocking all the overtime he can finagle, he has zero room in his life for more complications.

Apparently, an office build-out can lay the foundation for a new relationship. Who knew? But before Alex can trust Gideon with the truth about his fragile family, he has to believe that Gideon’s capable of caring about more than appearances. And Gideon must learn that when it comes to the heart, it’s content—not presentation—that matters.

Wolf's Clothing by E.J. Russell

e-j-russell-wolfs-clothing-cover-sTitle: Wolf’s Clothing

Series: Legend Tripping 02

Author: E.J. Russell

Genre: Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

Length: Novel (349 pages)

Publisher: Riptide Publishing (10 Oct 2016)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Blurb: What do you do when you finally prove the existence of the otherworld, but the ghosts kick your ass?

For Trent Pielmeyer, the answer is run like hell—away from his hostile family, away from the disbelieving cops, and far, far, far away from anything that smacks of the supernatural. After seven years’ captivity in a whacked-out alternate dimension, he is so over legend tripping.

When Christophe Clavret spots Trent in a Portland bar, he detects a kindred spirit—another man attempting to outrun the darkness of his own soul. But despite their sizzling chemistry, Trent’s hatred of the uncanny makes Christophe hesitant to confide the truth: he’s a werewolf, one of a dwindling line, the victim of a genetic curse extending back to feudal Europe.

But dark forces are at work, threatening more than their growing love. If Christophe can’t win Trent’s trust, and if Trent can’t overcome his fear of the paranormal, the cost could be Trent’s freedom and Christophe’s humanity. Or it might be both their lives.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Wolf’s Clothing is the sequel to the first book in the Legend Tripping series, Stumptown Spirits. While it is probably not vital to read book 1 before getting to book 2, there are a lot of key facts about the MC Trent Pielmeyer which would make a lot more sense.

We met Trent in book 1, at first he was introduced by his friend because he was “missing” and his family assumed that he was dead. Instead he was involved a deadly ghostly reenactment of a centuries old crime. Trent, and another man, were left in a sort of limbo. In Trent’s case, he was there for seven years. Therefore, when he reappeared out of nowhere – whether he told the truth or everyone assumed that he was suffering from PTSD – he was dismissed as something of a head case. He also reappeared looking as though not a day had past – he was a 27 year old in a 19 year old’s body. And on top of all that he often has nightmares of the seven years where he relived the hanging of a man in colonial Oregon.

Pretty twisted but now Trent wants nothing more than to move on. But while Trent has his own problems and wants to avoid all things paranormal, in particular anything that involves legend tripping, Christophe Clavert is an interesting case. He’s a wolf shifter, but he’s a bit resentful of his capabilities. Or rather, he doesn’t actually see it as a gift, more so a curse. There are a few parallels with Marvel’s X-Men during the course of the book and while I think that more detail could have gone into why Christophe feels this way, what is there is a good glimpse into the character.

Trent and Christophe both need to battle their own demons over the course of the book. They work well together and while the chemistry isn’t there from the outset it is clearly one of those cases where the romance is much more subtle and evolves as they get to know each other, i.e. it was definitely no love at first sight type of deal. However, it is ultimately Christophe’s issues that dominate and are thoroughly resolved by the end of the book. In fact, I find myself a little disappointed more time was spent on the detective that was following Trent and more about his mental state after being stuck in limbo for seven years. For that reason part of me was confused why the story was so long, but in the end I really got into the story.

If you liked the first book or if you’re looking for a paranormal/spirit based book with a twist this is the book for you, or at least worth the consideration.
