Blurb: Protect it at all costs.

That’s what rugby player Hunter Best’s mother told him before she died. But when Hunter surprises an intruder in his Chicago apartment, he discovers her amulet stolen. Hunter pursues the thief—all the way through a strange vortex. He wakes in a bizarre and violent world, a benighted realm on the threshold of civil war.

The queen has become a ruthless tyrant, punishing any who oppose her, weakening the kingdom’s defenses against the brutal Henerans. To survive, Hunter must depend on the man who robbed him, a handsome former spy named Dax, now a leader of the resistance that believes the queen is an imposter—a Heneran disguised by magic… who also looks identical to Hunter’s mother.

There’s no love lost between Hunter and Dax, and even if Hunter grudgingly agrees with the resistance, he just wants to reclaim his property and go home. But he might be the only one who can oppose the queen and end her reign of terror.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Hunter Best has his mothers amulet stolen from him one night. Not one to sit around and do nothing he takes off in hot pursuit of the thief only to follow the man into another world he never knew existed. Dax is the man that steals the amulet. Dax and his fellow rebellion members need it to make the impostor queen reveal her true self.

Hunter soon realizes this world has many dangers. He’s not trusted but as time goes by without getting any closer to a way home he decides to help the rebellion. Danger is around every corner and the slightest misstep can get you killed. I liked the story.

The characters were intriguing and engaging. The plot was awesome as it draws the reader deeper into the mysteries throughout. Twists and turns and many close calls of danger left me on the edge of my seat.

Great read.

The King’s Physician

by

Edie Montreux

Devlin was the King’s Physician until a blood mage siphoned Devlin’s magic and used it to wipe the kingdom’s memories. Sir Eldrich, his replacement, has protection against Filvane’s spells, but he only knows the whispered rumors: Devlin, the former King’s Physician, stole King Korgon’s crown on his coronation day.

Once Eldrich is appointed King’s Physician, Devlin notices a decline in King Korgon’s health and wonders if Eldrich is to blame. When Eldrich nearly bleeds to death on Devlin’s doorstep from grievous sword wounds, they’re thrown together in a race to keep King Korgon alive. They question the other’s allegiance to their king , but it will take their combined efforts and trust to stop Filvane from destroying Korgon and the entire realm of the living. In the end, these two King’s physicians may have more in common than their titles. They may even fall in love.

Howling On Hold

(Mythmatched Universe)
by

E.J. Russell

Sometimes it’s harder to teach a young dog new tricks.

That’s why werewolves embark on a Howling: a three-year rite of passage in which they’re sent to a group residence to wrestle with their wolfy instincts and assimilate into the Wider World. But Tanner Araya’s Howling is almost over, and he could be called back to his remote pack at any moment. His twenty-first birthday might be his last chance to act on his strongest instinct and finally kiss Chase Denney.

Chase is RA at the Howling residence affectionately dubbed “the Doghouse,” and he takes his job seriously. So seriously that when he realized he was developing feelings for a resident, he forced himself to keep Tanner at a distance. But now that Tanner’s twenty-one, he’s not Chase’s charge any longer. They could be friends or—if Chase is lucky—something more. At least until they both return to their home packs for good, as tradition demands.

It would take a miracle for them to get together—especially when the other Doghouse werewolves insist on “helping.”

Warning: Many Frisbees are harmed in this story, forgiveness is not always easier than permission, and the five-second rule does not apply.

He gets Lin sober to question him only to discover that Lin is new in town and ignorant of Luxor’s laws.

Dom dotes on Lin, leaving the once stone-broke Omega bathed in finery he never could have imagined. They start planning for Lin’s upcoming heat, when they will be driven together by their kindling bond and strong compatibility as an Alpha and Omega pair.

Review: Imprisoned on his eighteenth birthday and used for the queen’s pleasure Snow is alone and isolated in a tower. One day the queen decides to do away with him and gets her huntsman to take him away and bring back his heart. Seven men save him from death.

I loved getting to know these men and what happened to them. Snow and Sleepy forma a tight bond and become a couple. I loved the camaraderie and companionship of the story between the men and Snow.

There are heartfelt moments as well as intense ones. A great re-telling of snow white and the seven dwarfs with a few changes.

Great read.

Blurb: Toby has known little more than loneliness since he was taken from his home and his family was killed. He’s a prisoner, forced to heal the members of the gang that bought him from the men who kidnapped him.

Until he’s not.

Camden didn’t expect to find out that Sam’s brother, the brother who was sold to a gang, is his mate. He’s not sure where to go from here. Toby is understandably wary and cautious, and most of the time, he won’t let Camden close enough to talk to him. Camden doesn’t have a problem giving him the time and space he needs, but they might not have much of it.

When the envoy from another pack arrives and demands Camden give up one of the unicorn shifters, Camden refuses, even though he knows the Rosewood pack doesn’t stand a chance. The pack is small, and its members aren’t warriors. He’s not about to give Toby or Sam up, but he has no idea how his people are going to deal with this—or if they’ll make it out alive.

ISBN: 978-1-4874-2625-5

Product Link: eXtasy Books | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Toby and his brother are very rare shifters and very unique. When their parents were killed they were told to run, but only Toby managed it, so he thought. He had been taken and sold to gangs to be their healers. Hell he didn’t even know if he wanted to be one. Then another group showed up and rescued him.

Camden is an alpha of a small pack but Toby’s brother was one of them. So he did what any good alpha would do, he rescued the sexy man. Then he realizes that Toby is his mate. Things are going to get interesting real fast.

I like the unique shifters you see in this story. They are cute and funny in a way but also scared of what would happen. It is a cute story with a bit of action. Although it was only a bit of action which was a bit disappointing. It also ended in a bit of a cliffhanger which drove me nuts. It comes off rushed and leaves you hanging. It felt like it was going to slow and nothing major happened. I mean you have a threat, worry to death, rush a wedding and then all of a sudden it was done. No true fight was seen in the story.

I hate to admit it but I was a bit disappointed in the story. It just left me wanting more.

Blurb: Assistant Professor Reggie Wolfe has simple goals: to help his engineering students succeed and to stop male Wielders from falling into Taint without drawing attention from the Bureau of Wielder Services. A select few can Wield the Nerve of the World. Women Wielders do so freely, without any repercussions. For men, it’s another story. They fight Taint and Corruption for the same power.

Reggie’s easy life upends when Kyle, a young male Wielder, lands at his feet, trapped in his Taint and pursued by the very criminal Wielder cults the Bureau is fighting. As the two work to control Kyle’s Taint, Reggie realizes he will do everything he can to help Kyle, even follow him into darkness.

Edge of Desperation is the exciting opening novella to the Wielder World series—gay urban fantasy full of magic, suspense, and dedication born of trial and blood.

ISBN: B01EPAC5GM

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: In a society where men with wielder status suffer for their abilities by getting taint or corruption it’s best for them to remain hidden. Reggie is a wielder with a unique gift. He is able to untangle the nerve that causes it but not without causing his own corruption. Kyle is a young man trying to be recruited by a cult for male wielders. Reggie takes Kyle under his wing and tries to help him.

When Kyle calls with information about the clubs hideout Reggie gets in over his head when attempts to rescue Kyle. I liked this story about wielders and them having powers. They were different in nature depending on the wielder. I thought it intriguing as to why women were thought to control or handle theirs better as I saw instances where that was not the case. I did not care for the male wielders being on a list or disappearing for the slightest infraction.

All in all it was a fascinating read.

The Wolf and the Sparrow

by

Isabelle Adler

Derek never wished to inherit his title as a result of a bloody battle. With the old count dead and the truce dependent on his marriage to the rival duke’s son, Derek has no choice but to agree to the victor’s terms in order to bring peace to his homeland. When he learns of the sinister rumors surrounding his intended groom, Derek begins to have doubts—but there can be no turning back from saying I do.

After the death of his wife, Callan of Mulberny never expected to be forced into another political marriage—especially not to someone like the new Count of Camria. Seemingly soft and meek, it’s only fitting that Derek’s family crest is a flighty sparrow, worthy of nothing but contempt.

Another war with the seafaring people of the Outer Isles looms on the horizon, and the reluctant newlyweds must team together to protect those caught in the circle of violence. Derek and Callan slowly learn to let go of their prejudices, but as they find themselves enmeshed in intrigue fueled by dark secrets and revenge, their tentative bond is all that keeps their world—and their lives—from plunging into chaos.

Warning: Depictions of violence, battle scenes, physical injuries, mentions of torture, allusions to domestic abuse, dealing with grief, death of secondary characters.

He meets shy, sweet Kyle. But Kyle has been brought up in seclusion and taught that being gay is a sin. As the two slowly get to know one another they seem to bring out the best in each other despite their differences. I liked this story. it had several different aspects that appealed to me.

A past bully in Noah’s life tries to make trouble for him now, Kyle’s past comes back to haunt him and there’s a ghost in the book store. I loved the way the story unfolded as the scenes played out. They were entertaining to say the least.

Great read.

When one of Alistair’s colleagues tries to kill him, revealing himself to be a member of the terrorist organisation known as Pan, it’s Leon’s help he needs.

Leon knew his life would change when he left his old job working for a technology company, but he hadn’t anticipated just how much. He finds himself jetting off to Cuba to go undercover in the house of a drug lord where the only person he can trust is the assassin assigned to protect him.

Falling in love with a killer while pretending to be someone else, being held hostage, and having guns pointed at him way too often wasn’t the way Leon had imagined his life going, but as he was quickly learning, maybe he didn’t know himself as well as he thought.

ISBN: 978-1-64637-014-6

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: He had been working a normal job that wasn’t exciting but had what a normal person would need. That is until he was recruited by an organization that included excitement, adventure and danger, for those who were working on the outside. Leon was working as a collection and helped spy’s land on their feet. That was what he thought but on his first day he ended up helping one blow up a tank, and his life got stranger after that. Which considering he was a deer shifter was saying something.

Alistair was not only a spy but an assassin. One assignment that was suppose to be easy turned deadly, a tank was shooting at him. He needed help but the one on the other line was not who he expected. A tiger shifter who had a rough life until he had been taken in by a bear shifter, his job was what one would expected. Now with the help of a sexy little deer shifter they might just get out of this alive.

I came across this author quite some time ago and have always been fascinated by the worlds she has created. So when this series came out I knew I had to get my hands on it. I love paranormal’s that have a bit of suspense, danger, excitement and sexy ass spies in them. This gave me that and so much more. A tiger and a deer are an interesting combination. It caught my attention from the start and kept it till the very end.

I can guarantee that this is one of those stories that will be read many times over. I had a blast reading it and can’t wait to get my hands on the next story.

Blurb: Aramin Decourcey—Min to his few friends—might be the best thief in Amberwich, and he might have a secret that helps him survive the cutthroat world of aristocratic families and their powerful magic users, but he does have one weakness: his affection for his adopted nephew, Harry.

When the formidable Sabadine family curses Harry, Min must accept a suicide mission to save his life: retrieve Kazimir Stone, a low-level Sabadine hedgewitch who refuses to come home after completing his apprenticeship… and who is in Anhaga, a seaside village under the control of the terrifying Hidden Lord of the fae. If that wasn’t enough, Kaz is far from the simple hedgewitch he seems.

With the Sabadines on one side and the fae on the other, Min doesn’t have time to deal with a crisis of conscience—or the growing attraction between him and Kaz. He needs to get Kaz back to Amberwich and get Harry’s curse lifted before it kills him. Saving Harry means handing Kaz over to his ruthless family. Saving Kaz means letting Harry die. Min might pride himself on his cleverness, but he can’t see his way out of this one.

The Hidden Lord might see that he never gets the choice.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Oh my word this was such a great story. You have Min whose a thief sent on a mission to retrieve Kaz from Anhaga. Not all is as it seems and soon secrets come to light about who exactly Kaz is but the biggest bombshell comes near the end.

I hated Kaz’s grandfather. He was a disgusting piece of crap that I so wanted to hurt. His forcing his son to marry his nephew was beyond words. I loved that despite Min guarding his feelings he went and tried to rescue Kaz after he returned him.

This was such a magical journey with plenty of tense situations and action. The chemistry between Kaz and Min was off the charts. Kaz’s abilities took me by surprise as well his other surprises.

Well written and brilliantly told this story captivates you from start to finish as it weaves it’s spell around you.

I loved it. Fantastic read.

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

Blurb: The END is NEAR!

The Fae must be defeated if Brandr and Logan hope to find their happily ever after. Only by working together will have any chance of Mending the Rift and saving humanity.

The end would be upon Brandr and his friends soon. The only question, would Brandr be able to find his fated one in time? He feared he was too late when he arrived to find the field empty. Then the Veil opens again and hell rains down upon him as the Unseelie pets attack. But when Brandr was too injured to move, the Druid he was destined to claim as his own flees in terror. Talk about demoralizing.

That did not happen. Not even in some weird fantasy could Logan have imagined that a dead man could come back to life. And he had definitely been dead, since Logan had to put his head back on his body. But when he was faced with the truth, that the man was immortal, Logan has to admit to being…intrigued.

But as Samhain draws closer, the danger around them increases as the Fae converge. The Fae must be defeated if Brandr and Logan hope to find their happily ever after. Only by working together will have any chance of Mending the Rift and saving humanity.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This story was so good with the addition of Logan and the new kids. I loved Brandt and Logan together. Logan’s power was off the charts and very much needed in this addition. As with the others in the series you get a well written beautiful story about druid’s needing to stop the fae from coming through a rift and taking over. There were heart stopping moments that had me on the edge of my seat.

A lot happens throughout. There are twists and turns that I thoroughly enjoyed. I am sad this is the last book. I wanted more about Fen considering Aed cursed him as well. Even though he helped the vikings he was more in the background. I wanted to know how he escaped the fae. Is there a love interest for him, as eternity is a long time to spend alone and Aed never said in the curse he could not find someone for him.

I loved the entire series. Each druid possess a unique ability that will help mend the rift. But Logan was the last one needed to accomplish this. A Fantastic end to an amazing series.

Highly recommended.

Blurb: A trick of fairy magic becomes a romantic treat.

Halloween is fantasy-loving college senior Greg’s favorite holiday, and he’s thrilled to explore a spooky puzzle—even if his friends prefer slashers over witchcraft. Luckily the gorgeous and otherworldy Alaric wants to sneak time alone with him. Unluckily Greg’s sworn off hookups. Still reeling from an intoxicating kiss, Greg opens a secret door…

…and steps through a portal to the enchanted realm Alaric is destined to rule.

Stranded with the alluring Greg, Alaric sets off across his kingdom with the man who might be the consort he’s always wanted. It won’t be easy—Alaric’s ex, the Lord of Spiders, wants to reunite with Alaric—but if Greg and Alaric succeed, they’ll find what they’ve always wanted: a place to belong.

Review: His Fairy Prince is the second book in JS Harker’s Tit for Tat series, which is also part of the Dreamspun Beyond house line.

I make no secret how much I enjoy both Dreamspun Desires and Dreamspun Beyond. I really like the type of romances that come out these house lines and I like the fact that they following them, I get to read different authors, and in books such as these, I get to follow ongoing series. To me it’s all a win.

JS Harker is an author that I only discovered through Dreamspun Beyond, although not overly familiar with other works, I know I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read so far. Being that this is the second book in the series, I have vague recollections of book 1, it doesn’t stick out as a book that I disliked. So really, I don’t have strong feelings either way where the book or the author are concerned.
Although this is a second book in the series, this is also a standalone book. The link between the stories is more to do with the ideas rather than any personal connections between the characters. The main gist of being a college student, during a holiday that he absolutely adores, encounters a paranormal being who turns out to be his perfect match. That’s really it in a nut shell, but it’s a fun world.

In this book we meet Greg, who loves Halloween and is a bit of a nerd who also loves a bit of live action role playing. He and his friends attend a sort of fun house type set up which has different rooms and scenarios to play along. Greg’s excited because he snagged the witchcraft room, only to be disappointed because his friends (who seem really flaky and false towards him) prefer to go to the slasher scenario room.

When Alaric, who runs the place, sees Greg on the security feed he is instantly infatuated. He’s a bit miffed at Greg’s friends and decides to make an encounter with the young man. Greg isn’t interested in a random, meaningless hook up, and Alaric must concede. However, things take a strange turn when Greg, who is out on his own, opens the portal that takes him to plane of existence where Alaric comes from. A place where Alaric also happens to be a prince.

As soon as he realised what has happened, Alaric follows Greg and the two men are on a journey to get Greg back home. Alaric also finds himself being tested by the magic of his homeland, to determine whether he worthy and ready to rule. The only question is, are these quests enough to bring the two men together for a HEA, or will Greg decide to go back home to mortal realm?

What I love the most about this journey is that it’s a bit like Alice going down the rabbit hole and a little bit like a labyrinth. Greg is learning new things about a world he had only dreamed about in his wildest dreams, while learning more about Alaric. Alaric is also on his own journey of discovery.

Review: This was an awesome story of epic proportions. Where being in good with GOD will give you everything you ever wanted and more. But all is not what it seems and many atrocities are taking place as those seen as lesser and labeled as sinners, orphans, and many other terms are rounded up and taken away.

As with any society where there are those that feel injustice or unfairness is at play a revolution will sometimes occur to set things right. This is what happens in this story. Many different MC’s play a significant role throughout. Too many to name in this review. We have plenty of different POV’s to understand where each is coming from and how they feel. Needless to say the road they travel is not without danger and not everyone will make it out alive at the end.

This story does contain at least one rape scene and many other brutal atrocities that take place in the name of GOD. I loved the story despite this and was riveted to my seat until the end.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Now eighteen, Jazz meets his idol, the social activist Lysandra Mason, and her breathtaking nephew, Dash Mercury. When Dash is around, even stranger things start to happen, including Jazz falling hopelessly in lust. Not only is Jazz having visions, making people disappear, and somehow turning invisible, but somebody’s following him and threatening to reveal his pack’s secrets to the world.

Together with Dash and Jazz’s equally amazing friends—Carla, BeBop, Khadija, and Fatima—they discover the danger is even more lethal than they thought, and Jazz’s weirdness may save all their lives. .

Review: This is a spin off to the Harker’s Pack series. I read those books years ago and forget them.

A lot of information regarding the characters from those books take up a lot of room in the beginning. There was so much I felt bogged down at times. But then it levels off and we get to Jazz and Dash’s story which I liked but felt it was too fast paced at times and sometimes there were things that did not make sense.

Never the less this story, when it gets going, is intriguing and I enjoyed the plot and the new characters introduced. Jazz’s power was interesting and the way it played out was entertaining. The mystery was well written with a side of danger.

Overall it was a good read that I enjoyed.

Blurb: Mingus had one true love in life, animals. None of them were off the list, although, if he were completely honest, his favorite was his cat, Pretty Baby. He never imagined one day he might have to put someone else first. Not just anyone, but the man who has stolen his heart.

For centuries Oluf has dreamed of finding the one destined to be his. He’d even anticipated the need to woo him by becoming a chef. After all, according to his mother, the way to a man’s heart was through his stomach. What he hadn’t expected was that he would come in second to a cat with sharp claws, who seemed to enjoy using people as her personal scratching post.

As Mingus, Oluf, and their friends get closer to Samhain, the Fae will try to stop them using everything at their disposal. It means finding a way to work together, even if it takes shedding a few Tears of Life to do so. But in the end, will the fate of the human world come down to a cat?.

Review: I loved Mingus and Oluf’s story. A lot takes place in this exciting addition as the group once again begin to make plans for the ritual. I was impressed by Mingus and was awed when his ability made itself known in a huge way. Mingus’ cats story was so sad it brought tears to my eyes.

The Unseelie and Seelie both made it known what they wanted in different ways. But it was the near the end that both broke my heart and angered me at what happened to Kyleigh and what of Fin. I hope to find out more about them in the next book and to see all eight druid’s in action.

These books must be read in order to enjoy them fully as each picks up where the last leaves off. I highly recommend this intriguing series with it’s colorful characters a well as their unique abilities in each book.

Each story is brought to life with an amazing cast of people as well as an epic plot that has evolved from book one.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.
