Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: The gang is on a mission to discover the whereabouts of a vicious criminal. In the process of tracking him down we get a glimpse of the characters met and the circumstances in some cases. The nature of the crimes is devious yet brilliant and the culprit came as no shock to me. However his connection to some in the group did.

I was stunned speechless by how well written, intriguing and thoroughly captivating this addition was. The characters were all engaging, determined and hell-bent on finding the man responsible for so much mayhem. The investigation itself and how Blair, Jonas, Declan and Lucas discovered who was behind the acts was mind blowing.

I loved how well these men worked together and protected one another in the face of danger. Chocked full of suspense, mystery, danger and drama this book packed a punch until the very end. I am highly anticipating more in this entertaining and riveting series as I can’t get enough of this series. 

I highly recommend this story and series for all to read.

Bait

(Circles 05)
by

Elizabeth Noble

Tyler McCall has made mistakes. He was a teacher—before he fell for a student in his school. That misstep cost him his job and everything he’d worked for. He moved to the Black Hills of Wyoming to start his life over, and he’s happy working at the Big Rock Inn near Devils Tower.

Linden Bourne, a no-nonsense FBI agent Tyler had met before, returns to Wyoming hot on the trail of a killer. The previously unexplored attraction between them grows—which is good considering they’ll be spending a lot of time together when a blizzard strands them at the inn. Cut off from the outside world, with no power, they’ll need to rely on their wits and each other to survive.

Especially when it becomes clear they’re not alone—and the danger they face comes from more than the elements.

Circles series blurb:

Every life is a circle, and sometimes those circles connect and overlap in unexpected ways, even if the patterns they form aren’t obvious at first glance.

Past and present, from the wilderness to small towns and cities, the greedy and evil seek to exploit the vulnerable. The brave men of law enforcement fight to protect the innocent and punish the guilty—but they’re not alone. Men from all walks of life are called to stand beside them and solve these mysteries. Along the way, lives intertwine as couples are reminded that one thing makes the struggle worthwhile: love.

Reviewer: Shorty & Pixie

Shorty’s Review: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

This is the first book in The Vampire Guard series. I did not know how I’d feel about this book due to this is the first one I have read by this author but man was I surprised. It had everything I could want in a story and then some. Mystery, deception, hot paranormal men, action, suspense and adventure. This story wraps the reader in a world that is anything but ordinary.

I really enjoyed getting to know the MC’s of this book and their partners. Jonas is a vampire and a cop and stops at nothing to solve a crime. Blair, a vampire, technician and Jonas’ partner seemed unsure of himself except when it came to solving a crime, though I understood as he was still in the ‘newbie phase’ as I call it.

Declan, a vampire, was one of the most mysterious of the characters. That was due to his work before. It added a level of danger and anticipation that I enjoyed. He seemed nice but yet cold as ice when the situation was necessary. Lucas is a werewolf, medical examiner. Declan’s partner and Jack’s best friend. 

I loved the interactions between these men and was stunned as to how well they all worked together. I think that the group that wanted to recruit them could have just asked them rather than lie and kidnap them. The mystery of the book was well written and riveting. I enjoyed the folklore and legend involved and was astounded as to what actually happened. 

This book will captivate you from the start and have you reading until the very end to find out the end result. With brilliantly detailed scenes that leave you holding your breath to the actual details of the crimes this book was a winner to me if I could give it 10 stars I would. 

I am so glad I had the opportunity to read such an amazing story. I am looking forward to reading more of this series. Highly recommended.

Pixie’s Review: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

I fully concur with Shorty’s review; Elizabeth Noble has, yet again, written an amazing story that you can lose yourself in. The characters shine yet again (The Sleepless City series 2 & 4) and we see them as they embark on a new adventure as they take their unique skills and use them for the greater good.

The best thing for me though is catching up with Jonas, Blair, Lucas and Declan again and seeing how their relationships have continued to be strong and loving. I seriously can’t wait to see what Elizabeth and The Vampire Guard series has in store for us next!

I recommend this to those who love paranormal stories with added mystery, who adore characters that come alive before your eyes, who fangirl/boy over amazing storylines and for those who love it when myth and legend surprises even the most jaded of paranormals!

(Sentries 06)
by

Elizabeth Noble

New Colorado Protectorate fell with the assassination of Chancellor Clarke. Like many others, Todd and Nick Ruger left the land of their birth and made a home to the north in Yellowknife. Their world was ever changing. The time came to say a sad farewell to some of their friends and loved ones, but they were taken in with open arms by others and in turn offered shelter to yet more. Through the years they remained steadfast in their duty as sentries to protect and defend those that needed it the most.

Time marches on but through it all they hold each other dear and cherish the love they’ve shared. There are still angry ghosts, Windigos and water spirits to contend with. Their lives change, offering them new roles. When the time comes, they do what sentries have done for generations prior and teach others the skills to carry on as sentries. The Rugers lives were rich and their hearts full with their devotion and love for each other. The tradition of the sentries lived on forever. It was the legacy of Todd and Nick Ruger. That was the way it was always meant to be.

by

Elizabeth Noble

Chaos reigns in The Sleepless City, and it’s really beginning to piss Detective Jonas Forge off. He’s got inner demons to battle and a life to build with his new soul mate, Blair Turner. Nothing is going right, and he already feels the universe is conspiring against him when a turn of events he never saw coming flips his world upside down.

Hallucinations grip the town and everyone in it, threatening to tear their precariously built family apart, and the only way forward is to bare all to each other. This means Declan and Blair need to learn to accept one another. Lucas Coate has to move forward without ties to his werewolf pack and live a monogamous life with Declan.

But while Forge and Declan confront horrors from their shared past, Simon learns a terrible truth about vampires—one he couldn’t have imagined in his worst nightmares.

Elizabeth Noble - Electric Candle Electric Candle 1

Blurb

When a vampire finds his soul mate, the bond is forever. It’s love at first sight. Or is it?

Flint, Ohio, Homicide Detective Jonas Forge has been a vampire for nearly two hundred years. He’s fought wars, seen life go from the simple but hard colonial days to the modern, high-tech world. He’s evolved with the times, adapting with each new era, blending into each new life. The one constant is his best friend and lover, Declan.

Until Forge’s soul mate tumbles, literally, into his life.

Even though they’re not fated to be together forever, Forge and Declan are perfectly happy. Despite the pheromone attracting him to his soul mate, Forge isn’t thrilled with the guy, and the feeling seems mutual. While trying to adjust to his clumsy soul mate and equally awkward feelings, Forge is on the hunt for the serial killer who’s leaving a trail of bodies, and who witnesses can’t identify. But Forge better watch out. When his work collides with his love life, things really heat up.

About Elizabeth

Elizabeth Noble started telling stories before she actually knew how to write, and her family was very happy when she learned to put words on a page. Those words turned into fan fiction that turned into a genuine love of M/M romance fiction. Being able to share her works with Dreamspinner is really a dream come true. She has a real love for all things sci-fi, futuristic, and supernatural and a bit of an unnatural interest in a super-volcano in Wyoming.

 

Elizabeth has three grown children and is now happily owned by an adorable mixed breed canine princess named Rosie, and two cats, Murphy and Yeti. She lives in her native northeast Ohio, the perfect place for gardening, winter and summer sports (go Tribe!). When she’s not writing she’s working as a veterinary nurse, so don’t be surprised to see her men with a pet or three who are a very big part of their lives.

Review: This story is part of a series and can be read in order but can also be read by itself. Jonas Forge is a homicide detective and a vampire, hunting for a serial killer who is killing young men. At one crime scene he stumbles across his soul mate but he is far from happy, his soul mate is clumsy and naive and Forge doesn’t want to give up his relationship with his constant companion Declan. Blair has helped Forge and his friends online for several years but suddenly a driving need has him travelling to Flint, meeting Forge is confusing as Blair really doesn’t have a clue about the paranormal world but he refuses to come between Forge and his real love. When the investigation into the murders comes close to home Forge must accept that Blair might just be the one for him.

This is a great story of a vampire who has to let go of the past in order to find happiness in the future, oh and also of a really cool murder investigation that has surprises for the guys from Bogg’s Castle. Blair is a sweet guy who was turned and left to fend for himself; everything he has learnt about vampires he found out from graphic novels so he has muddled along as best he can. Forge has been a vampire for over two hundred years and was very happy with his life, when Blair tumbles into his life he finds it hard to let go of what he has always had with Declan. Two vampires drawn together by a soul bond, trying to find a way to make it work when one refuses to accept change and the other refuses to make waves.

I found this story to be very interesting and really enjoyed the hunt for the killer; I really liked how the vampires were portrayed and how they carried over simple allergies from when they were human. This is a great story but I found Forge to be a great big stick in the mud, when I first saw how Forge and Blair met I had great hopes for their relationship but Forge constantly put obstacles in the way, refusing to even consider opening his heart to Blair, it wasn’t until he nearly lost Blair that Forge seemed to change his tune about what he wanted. Poor Blair does everything he can to make things easier for Forge even offering to leave but damn I wish he would have told Forge to suck it up and to stop acting like a baby. Will they make a great couple?… that I can’t answer because although Blair proved himself to be a perfect partner, Forge came across as selfish, only wanting what he wanted and ignoring how it affected others.  

The murder mystery was brilliantly written always leaving us guessing and bringing a sense of danger to the story when it directly impacts Bogg’s Castle, we see the guys pulling together and working to their strengths to even begin to learn what they are up against. I must admit to looking forward to future stories as the guys seem to have only scratched the surface of the mystery and I am hoping that Forge and Blair’s relationship will settle into something special.

The book is well written and the story is a good one, the relationship is far from an easy one but both characters make it very interesting. The investigation leaves us wanting answers but it looks to be very far reaching and not one that will be solved easily, constantly whetting our appetites with the mystery of just what is really going on.

I recommend this to those who love paranormal mysteries, great characters who are both interesting and annoying, accepting new love and letting go of the old one, danger and desperate searches and an ending that piques your interest for the next book.

Review: This book is part of a series and must be read in order. Todd and Nick make a mad dash for freedom when Vice-Chancellor Raleigh’s troops finally capture them. With Todd imprisoned and Nick planning his escape, they receiving a helping hand from Chancellor Clarke and are once again in his debt. Reluctantly carrying out a mission that takes them back to Eldrid, they discover a chilling list of slaves and owners that Raleigh is trying to get his hands on. With conspiracies going back far into the past and a trigger that could set lover against lover, Todd and Nick must put a stop to Raleigh’s plans before the tide of war changes. But, it will test their bond and love to the limits.

This is an excellent addition to the Sentries series, giving us additional information about the origins of the Sentries, what happened to the world and how the way of life came about. Todd and Nick are as devoted to each other as they have been throughout the series. They may be owner and slave, but they are also mates with Todd encouraging Nick to be his own person. In this story we see how far Nick has come and how he has developed from that shy quiet slave we first met in Marked Yours. We also see the deep love that Todd and Nick have for each other. The development of the characters over the series is brilliant. The changes are slow, but a natural development of their growth together.

The storyline is well written and plotted out perfectly. As with each book before it, it has its own story, but with hints and slivers of plot for the next book to come. Nick and Todd uncover a devious plot by Raleigh, when they are investigating in Eldrid for Clarke. The plot is sinister and must be stopped before Raleigh can put it into motion. But, it puts both Nick and Todd in danger. This story sees Nick and Todd delving into history, dodging soldiers, escaping traps, helping injured, gaining allies and never finding the full truth. For those who have just joined the series it is imperative that these books are read in order. Otherwise you will never understand the bond between Nick and Todd and you need the other books for the background and a more in-depth understanding of the world they live in.

I will recommend this story to those that love a post-apocalyptic world, paranormal aspects, a strong lovers bond, complex storyline that weaves through the entire series and a happy for now ending.
