Consorts of the Red King

by

Eden Winters

In deepest space the ruthless Federation lays waste to one rebel colony after another, leaving comrades-in-arms Van Orskey and Tayn Kassik without family, without a home, and without hope.

With nothing left but each other, they run contraband and smuggle fugitives from the safety of their ship, the Cormorant—with the occasional clandestine mission for the rival Coalition thrown in. Their heists have not gone unnoticed, though even the bounty on their heads doesn’t prevent them from being a thorn in the enemy’s side at every opportunity.

Pissing them off? Big mistake.

From the day of his birth Prince Jorvik of Akiak learned duty, wisdom, and honor from his father, leaving him ill-equipped to withstand betrayal by his Federation-puppet uncle. He has no love for the greedy off-worlders who plunder his world’s natural resources and enslave his people. To defeat his foe, he needs the cunning, fearlessness, and touch of treachery only outlaws can offer.

Two off-world mercenaries make unlikely partners in Jorvik’s quest for vengeance, but the more he learns of them, the more common ground he discovers. In each other’s arms they find passion, heat, and maybe, a reason for living—until their common enemy threatens to tar them apart. 

To survive, they must take on the corrupt Federation. 

And win.

Blurb: Bishop Cyre has denied Ervyn Bauer is his mate since finding him on death’s door four years ago, and Ervyn has had enough. Either Bishop moves past his fears and claims him, or Ervyn is giving up for good.

Ervyn Bauer goes to a club to let loose, but he never expects to meet Mykel Leon. It’s bitter-sweet that Mykel turns out to be his mate, when he loses control and almost claims Ervyn against his will.

Mykel can’t believe he finally found his mate only to discover he already belongs to somebody else. After almost ruining everything, he decides to do whatever it takes to fix their mating, even if that means sharing Ervyn with the handsome demon that takes his breath away.

When Ervyn is kidnapped, Mykel and Bishop must overcome their differences and work togeth-er to find Ervyn before the worst happens, and maybe find a little love along the way.

Review: Saved by His Demons is the second book in Camellia Dawn’s Under Demon Rule series, it is also the second book by the author that I have read. I’ve been looking forward to this book after enjoying the first book, as well as getting insight to who was going to be the involved into the next book, and I really wanted to know what was going to happen next.

While I can’t say that this was a totally awesome and amazing book, I still found this quite enjoyable and I’d be more than happy to read any more additions to this series. This is an MMM book where the thruple is two demons and a human. You have one reasonable demon, one demon that has a protective complex that keeps him from claiming his mate, and one human who is a lot stronger than his demons realise.

Like the first book in this series the plot is quite simple and so I don’t want to go into too much detail and spoil the plot.

Ervyn was found, pretty much dying, by demons a little over four years ago. The demon who found him, Bishop knew that Ervyn was his mate when he saw the broken human and decided that he would break the man if he ever claimed him. Bishop kept this knowledge to himself but four years later Ervyn now knows that his attraction for the demon is more. Since he has been rejected from the man destined to be his mate, Ervyn has decided that the best course of action is to move on with his life. Which brings him to a club where he meets Mykel, another demon who also happens to be Ervyn’s mate and a demon that wants to claim him. To Mykel, finding his mate is his every dream come true. But with danger taking Mykel on a dangerous scouting trip and Bishop so angry that he doesn’t see that Mykel is also his mate, the trio are in for a rough ride.

As I said, over all this was an enjoyable book. The guys are interesting, distinct characters and like how they fit together as a thruple. I particularly liked Mykel and Ervyn, although I also liked Bishop I found him a little to brutish and pig headed for my liking. If you’re into paranormal romances that are based in their own worlds (i.e. not sure if we’re on earth or in another realm), particularly recommended for those that like a bit of demon lovin’!

Blurb: New body. Four men. And a reputation so bad, even tabloids are tired of him.

Theo Salazar will never be the same again.

Shadowborn. Once known as a child embraced by the shadows themselves, he was the Dark Cult Clan’s greatest secret and their supreme sacrifice. He took them out from the face of the earth…before they came back to snatch him from the dead.

Theo went through his mental checklist:
Revived? Check. Mind-fucked? After jumping off roofs apparently. Men who wanted him dead again? Yep.

A man couldn’t even die in peace and now I have to cater to this arrogant CEO? That’s where I draw the line.

Oh. And kill a shit god.

Before he was put in the body of a scum actor named Theo Salazar, he was a mercenary – a laid-back freelancer who lived to die. It just so happened that he was also called Theo.

“Theo without a last name.” Cursed. Feared. A man covered in the ashes of a thousand enemies…and about to retire, umbrella drinks and all. That is, until he died and found himself on a hospital bed like part of some abandonment play. Gods.

He was supposed to be dead —
Only to wake up in another man’s body.

From runaway child vessel of shadow magic to the forever lovable bastard of a mercenary, he spent his whole life covered in blood. But just when he thought he could finally rest in peace…

Bang.

He died for a bet – thrown carelessly into a new life and new problems. “Good luck,” the voice said.

The threads of his life kept getting tangled, past life and present.

Haunted by dreams of an angel, Theo could only hear her pleas to save somebody she wouldn’t name. And then there were them. Four men who prowled his nightmares and sought to chain him to their very souls.

Strange Connections, Hollywood Hate.

Ever since he transmigrated to this new life, he found himself fighting more than he ever did on the battlefield.

Stuck in the body of an infamous “scum actor” known as Hollywood’s Creep, Theo had to survive not only god’s games, but also the actor’s enemies as well. Who also coincidentally shared the same first name as him. He was now…Theo Salazar the embarrassment of Hollywood.

Seriously. What exactly was he supposed to do over here?

Add fashion-crazed yakuza, fox-masked ninja with skills, and a lot of heavy dreams. To top it all off, the man who should have hated him the most? America’s Golden Child? Knew him in the most bizarre way.

Coincidence – or orchestrated by the gods? He wasn’t naive enough to believe in “fate”.

And why couldn’t a certain CEO just leave him alone? He’s not the only one.

Dealing with assassins under the moonlight was one thing.
Heated encounters with strange men was another.

“Demon king…” What? Said the guy sleeping at my front door.

“A company must make it’s full investment back.” Why won’t you let me rip up the contract?!

“You saved my life!” Then stop stalking me!

“If you ever need to talk…” Okay. Shit. Can’t say anything here. It’s like he stepped out of a painting.

…I’ve lost it, haven’t I?

Why didn’t he simply leave them alone…disappear…vanish into the shadows like he always did? What was it about them that made him stay as much as he wanted to leave?

Their twisted smiles loomed over me. “My angel.”

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I have to say this was one of the strangest yet entertaining books I’ve read so far. Theo is a complicated character at least it seemed to me he was. He has dark powers capable of killing men by the dozens. His own family wanted him dead so he dealt with them. But that’s not all assassination attempts are made repeatedly throughout.

Then there is the scene where he dies, which confused me greatly. How can you be killed by a dead man? I was lost at that scene. Afterwards Theo is thrust into countless dreamlike states where he sees individuals and gets glimpses of certain things. Then comes back to life in an actors body with the same name who everyone hates.

Whew it was a challenge grasping what was going on at times but what a wild ride it was. I loved the details and the imagery of the scenes. The things Theo does when put in a dangerous situation is mindblowing.

I enjoyed the story and looking forward to reading more about all the characters throughout.

Harris and Grant were both raised in an orphanage. They’ve known beatings, starvation—and falling in love. When the dangers become too great, they run away into the dark woods, and they come across a cottage made completely of sweet treats. What could one taste hurt? Well, it stirs the handsome witch that lives inside. Fearing his wrath, they run straight into the brutal orphanage owner they were fleeing from before. Their unlikely hero is none other than the witch, but does the handsome magician want to save them or devour them? As it turns out, a bit of both.

But when the cottage the witch is bound to is set on fire, Harris and Grant face a terrible decision. For the only way the witch can be free is by eating one of their hearts…

Review: I loved this take on Hansel and Gretel, it was unique and fascinating with amazing characters that really blossomed the story into a fantastic read. Harris and Grant grew up in a orphanage. Neither have had a great time of it as the head of the place is a cruel man.

The boys finally run away and find Dec, a witch in the woods. Unfortunately Mr. D finds them and what follows is decisions and futures to be made.

Twists and turns along with an amazing story line had me on the edge of my seat throughout the book. I loved it.

Fantastic read.

(Four Mercenaries 03)
by

K.A. Merikan

— Bruised not broken. Loved. Always. —

Clover’s life was perfect a year ago. He’d found four men to love, each essential to making him whole. Each one of them tough in their own way, part of a crew of mercenaries living on the wrong side of the law. 

Tank was his loving Daddy, Pyro the wild one always pulling him into mischief, Boar taught him how to cook, and Drake showed him how to use knives in a wholly different fashion. 

All Clover wanted was to finally be an equal in the group. So he trained, he pushed, and risked, but when real danger stared him in the face, he broke like a twig. 

Now, with one of his lovers taken, Clover can’t find a way back to his former self. Each of the relationships they’d so meticulously built is fractured, and might never be the same.

If their group is to ever be whole again, Clover needs to find the courage he’s lost, but that means facing the monster who scarred him, and truths none of his men want to confront.

Volley Balls by Tara Lain ~ Audio Review

Series: Balls to the Wall 01

Author: Tara Lain

Narrator: Nick J. Russo

Genre: Contemporary

Length: 4 hrs, 1 min

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press LLC (10th April 2018)

Heat Level: Explicit

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖 2.5 Hearts

Reviewer: Prime

Blurb: A “pumped up” version of the Volley Balls story, twice as long as the original.

A double dose of alpha male might be better than one.

Despite just getting out of an abusive relationship with an asshole alpha, David Underwood’s wandering glance lands on two hot members of the Australian volleyball team on Laguna Beach and gets him harassed again. Still, when the delicious Gareth Marshall proves his interest by coming out to his team, David succumbs to his attraction. But Gareth’s volleyball partner, Edge, who’s equally hot, makes the lovers’ lives miserable.

For Gareth, a lifetime of hiding his orientation – and his attraction – from his best friend, Edge, as well as everyone else around him, adds up to hurt and frustration. David’s the first man to ever compete with Edge for Gareth’s passion. But Edge has secrets of his own, and David’s ex-lover will never be happy without David under his fist. With everything stacked against him, can a gay Laguna man find happiness with an alpha male – or two?

Purchase Link: Audible US | Audible UK | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Review: Volley Balls is the first book in Tara Lain’s Balls to the Wall series, set in idyllic Laguna Beach (much like her series Love in Laguna, and I think the Love You So series, too). The way I understand it, this is a revised and expanded edition of the story, although I’ve had no prior knowledge of it before listening to the audio. I was interested, however, because I have enjoyed a number of other books and series of Lain (like those already mentioned). I’ve found it very easy to connect to Lain’s characters and get so easily invested into their storylines. So I thought that this would be a no-brainer – a cool, short story to get into to pass some time. As always when I see something involving Australia or Australian characters, that was just the icing on the cake for me to get into the story.

But – there is a big but… I struggled with this story. I struggled with the characters – connecting to them, empathising with them, wanting them to have their HEA. I struggled with how the plot went too and how the characters story arcs panned out. I got annoyed when Australians were brushed with the homophobic brush, but I pushed that aside because while it’s not all Australians, naturally there are a lot of homophobic a*holes here as there is anywhere else. I struggled so much that I have left it almost 2 weeks to write the review because I just don’t know what to say.

Before I break this down further, let me get into the plot of this story.

An Australian volleyball team is in Laguna, two of the guys are Gareth and Edge. Gareth and Edge have been friends for years. But Gareth has stayed closeted for fear of what his teammates and his best friend would say if they found out he is gay. His actions appear justified when his team and Edge are homophobic a*holes, not holding back calling men names such as fairy.

But Gareth has caught the attention of David Underwood, and vice versa. David is a sweet, down to earth guy and has major concerns about what it would mean to get involved with a closeted volley ball player whose friends who are horrible, homophobic and even seem to border on psychotic (though I am sure that was just a way to get the story moving forward).

Then there is Edge. Gareth’s best friend and the man that could prevent David and Gareth from being together, completely in love. Edge is jealous and doesn’t know how to deal with his emotions when it comes to Gareth, who has been his best friend and so much more for so many years. To me, Edge is the most difficult character, because his actions are so full of venom and at times manipulative it is then hard for me as the reader to understand his about face which leads Gareth and David opening their minds to a different kind of relationship.

As you can now probably guess, my biggest issue in this book is Edge. While I liked David and Gareth together and felt the connection and potential between the characters, I felt that the addition of Edge into the relationship was tacked onto the end. Although, to be honest, I don’t feel that there was a lot of character development to fully understand the motivations of each of the guys, especially Edge. I normally love MM menage romances but I found it difficult to believe Edge’s connection and chemistry when he was so full of hate and venom. I’m not sure, part of me kind of thinks that if the book was longer and that if there was significantly more character development this book would be better, and Edge could be more relatable.

My feelings for this book are so intense that I’m not just getting to the narration and tacking that onto the end of the book. To be honest, it was the narration by Nick J Russo that kept me going. I’ve heard Russo’s work in the past and so I didn’t have any concerns there. He does a great job with the characters, even does a fairly good Aussie accent for Gareth and Edge. For me, while his performance couldn’t fully redeem the book in my eyes (because there are some books that I just can’t read but totally love the same book when I listen to the audio), his performance was great.

Despite my issues with the book, I am certain there are many people that would love this – I mean, I’ve read other reviews that show just that. I recommend this to people that want a very sexy book, with tonnes of steamy sex scenes, menage/poly romances and a relationship that is best described as instalove.

Review: Ferno and Fross team up to find out how to stop the damage that is happening to worlds. They meet Moth an enigmuss, who sounded the alarm about Ibi. The sparks fly between the three as they try to stop Ibi’s plans from continuing.

There are a lot of characters at play throughout this story. Gods, a creator and enigmuss, a worker class of people who are influenced by Ibi’s lies. Moth is one two exceptions to this as neither succumb to the hypnotic voice.

I loved that more than one individual is involved in the evil plot as it adds a harder ploy to catch them all as is the case with most other stories. I look forward to reading more about the creator, gods, and the men mentioned that work for the creator that have been mentioned.

Highly recommended.

With Jake’s leg being injured and Landis not regaining consciousness, Jake and Theo must find a way to keep them all alive until they can either find help, or be rescued.

When one of their rescuers turns out to be their mate, Jake, Theo, and Landis become excited,because not only have they found their mate, but that means that these three lifelong friends and lovers can finally claim each other and become a mated quad.

But things are never that easy. It turns out the island is a hidden sanctuary for omega wolves who don’t trust anyone from the outside world, especially alphas and betas. Each of these omegas had been abused by dominating alphas, which caused them to run from their lives and hide away.

Review: Although I’ve read this type of story before I was looking forward to reading this one. I loved some of the authors other series I’ve read so I was expecting more a long the same lines. Alpha Jake and Betas Theo and Landis have been everything to each other for a long time. However they keep things quiet with the other members of their pack. When they are found out they flee for their lives.

We are introduced to Aiden, the trios mate and Finn. Now I found Aiden to be a bit childish considering his age and what about Finn? There is not a lot of resolution to different questions I have by the end of the book.

I am hoping at least some questions will be answered later in the series or the next book.

Review: Wow. Just wow.

I had no idea what to expect when I started listening to this audiobook. Both the author, Colette Davison, and the narrator, Piers Ryman, were totally new to me. I Wish For You was amazing. All the parts of the book – from the characters, the writing, the plot and the narration – worked wonderfully, giving the reader a sweet, sexy friends to lovers romance.

The narration was flawless. This was the first time I’ve heard Piers Ryman and quite frankly, it was a flawless performance in my opinion. I look forward to any other work he does in the future. Ryman does justice to three very complex characters, whose relationship (at least the friendship part) is already establishment and therefore they are past having to get to know each other. Each character had a distinct voice and tone which suited each man.

The plot itself is quite simple, but was so well executed, that I don’t want to give too many details away. The story opens from Seb’s point of view as his best friends Connor and Matt meet his drunk butt in a pub. He’s been dumped and it’s his best friends since childhood who come to his rescue. An impulsive camping trip, lots of alcohol and wishing upon shooting stars blurs the lines of friendship for these men. But with only Seb out gay, Matt believing he is straight and Connor refusing to allow himself close enough to love anybody, they are complicated. Thankfully, these guys know how to communicate, they take their time to do things properly and as a reader it just made me so happy.

The guys have three very distinct personalities. I adored each of them, which for me does not always happen, especially when we get into menage/poly romances. Seb is the one that leads everyone into trouble, and the leader when it comes to easing into a physical relationship. Connor is a nurturer but his fear based on his past, which you can’t blame the guy for, is a hurdle that only Matt and Seb can help him with. And then there is Matt. He’s the soft, cuddly teddy bear. I don’t want to say that he is glue between the three, because this is a relationship that has been clearly written that this relationship couldn’t work if one of them was left out. Instead, I think the best way to put it is that Matt is the one that is something of a conduit for the emotions, helping Connor express himself and compliments Seb’s matter-of-fact delivery of the more practical side of their physical relationship. I’m really finding it difficult to put into words, so I hope that makes sense!

I think what I loved the most was that despite being friends, the guys don’t have a smooth transition into the romantic relationship. There is some baggage associated for all the characters, and so for these reasons I find this one easy to relate to each of the characters and what they need to go through to make things work. The POV alternates between the three men throughout out the story, which is just another thing that I liked about this book. I never felt that I was missing information or emotions because I got a full story.

This book has got me intrigued into reading more of Colette Davison’s work. This was such a well written story with characters that were so beautifully developed, I need more.

If you’re sucker for a friends to lovers story, this is an awesome book for you, and if you love MMM on top of that then you be very happy.

Their Obsession

(Four Mercenaries 02)
by

K.A. Merikan

— Loved. Protected. Shattered. —

Clover has found love with not one man, but four. He never imagined such a relationship could work, let alone that he’d be at the center of it, but a year later, his bond with the four mercenaries is stronger than ever.

Each man in Clover’s life completes him in a whole different way. Where Drake teaches him shibari, Boar always showers him with cuddles. Where Tank is strict and protective, Pyro takes Clover on wild adventures.

To truly become a part of the mercenary crew, Clover chose to train under the guidance of his men. He’s itching for action to prove to himself and to others that he can handle the toughest jobs.

But through violence and mayhem, Clover will be tried in ways he never wished for. Old enemies resurface, bonds are tested, and one wrong move can mean death.

Sound of Us by A.M. Arthur

A.M. Arthur - Sound of Us Cover 2833ghTitle: Sound of Us

Series: Us 02

Author: A.M. Arthur

Genre: Contemporary

Length: Novel (298pgs)

Publisher: Briggs-King Books (April 21, 2017)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖 4 Hearts

Blurb: Jake Bowden didn’t expect to be settling into a strong, loving relationship with another guy at only twenty-three years old—never mind with two. His chemistry with Cris is as strong as ever, while things with Charles are more like a simmer than a heavy boil. Charles says he’s perfectly content to go at Jake’s pace, but Jake isn’t sure slow is what he wants anymore. And when Jake wants something, he isn’t shy about going after it.

Cris Sable is head-over-heels in love with the two men in his life, and he’s vowed to do everything he can to protect the fragile, three-way relationship they’re cultivating—even if it means lying about his past. A dark past that resurfaces in an unexpected way and forces Cris to make the difficult choice between shielding Jake and Charles from it, or trusting them enough to help him face it head-on.

Charles Greenwood had forgotten what it felt like to be loved, until a feisty go-go boy and an ex-porn star fell into his bed, and then stole his heart away. He loves both men equally, but differently, slowly stoking the fire of the chemistry he shares with Jake, while passionately pursuing Cris—both in and out of bed. Their lives are entwining in the very best way…until Cris starts to pull away, distancing himself from the loving support of their triad. And after Cris disappears one night on a drunken bender, Charles vows to do whatever it takes to prove to Cris that he can trust them with anything—mind, body and spirit.

Three separate hearts will finally beat as one.

Note: This is the continuation of an m/m/m romance begun in Here For Us and is best read in order to fully enjoy the character and story development. The book also contains mild BDSM elements, including spanking.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: The trio Cris, Chet and Jake are settled but not. Secrets are still surrounding them as Jake still struggles with his insecurities and Cris with his past. I loved how they were there for each other when one was in need. They seemed so good together if only they resolved the problems they were going through.

Emotional and endearing this story will pull at the heartstrings. These men deserve some happiness instead of struggling against their own demons. I am honestly hoping for a resolution for these guys as I prefer a different couple each time I read a book as I get bored with just one couple in book after book.

Never the less it was a great read.

Length: Novel (190pgs)

Publisher: Siren-Bookstrand, Inc. (13th May 2019)

Heat Level: Sextreme

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

Blurb: Craig, Amos, and his mates are desperate to protect the most vulnerable from the bigotry and brutality of shifters who’ve had things their own way for far too long. A new danger rears its head, the mysterious Dermot Bairre, a man with links to the past, when the first shifter alpha, ancestor to Amos Hartland, tried to unify the shifters, and was betrayed in the worst way.

Bairre has a secret, and is on a mission of his own, aided by his crew, a band of demons who need human blood to survive. Amos must decide what Bairre’s relationship is to Dara O’Shea, a shifter whose blind ambition threatens to expose them all. The O’Sheas have a weak alpha, Seamus, and an unstable future, leading Seamus’s mate to flee with their unborn son, frightened that Dara will try to take power by eliminating the future heir.

It’s time for Blue Platoon to step up again, like knights of old…Hartland’s Knights.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Dara is closing ranks on Amos and his mates as he takes out those he sees as weak and unfit. He recruits others for his nefarious plans. I really enjoyed the history about who Bairr and his crew were but I was disappointed that their telling of why they had a connection to the Trawley’s and Collier’s was cut short.

Quite a few battles take place as a lot happens to different members of Hartlands pack as a result of rescuing and or protecting others. Those who were once enemies become allies when they are attacked and hurt. I love the way the series is going so far. The tense situations, action, sarcastic comments, and love all combine to make for a fantastic addition.

I am looking forward to reading more and seeing what happens next in this exciting series.

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖 4 Hearts

Blurb: Cris Sable doesn’t walk into popular gay bar Big Dick’s expecting to find more than a casual hookup, so he’s surprised by his instant attraction and intense chemistry with go-go dancer Jake. Jake’s sexy as hell and a firecracker in bed. The sparks between them are undeniable, and what starts as a hookup evolves into something deeper, possibly permanent—until Jake dumps Cris flat on his ass for no good reason.

Angry and confused, Cris finds comfort with his longtime friend and employer Charles “Chet” Greenwood. Cris’s emotional state stirs up Charles’s long-buried feelings for Cris. Feelings he’s denied for eight years, because Cris is his employee and therefore off limits—not to mention two decades younger than Charles. Cris admits he has feelings for Charles, too, but he’s still getting over Jake and both men agree nothing can happen between them while Charles is still Cris’s boss.

Jake Bowden knows he doesn’t have anything to offer a guy. He’s a go-go dancer with no degree and no real career aspirations. He’s also used to everyone who loves him leaving, so it makes sense to cut Cris loose before things get too serious. Cris is kind, passionate and totally deserves a guy like Charles—wealthy, owns a home, successful businessman. Jake can’t compete so why bother? They’re better off together. But when Jake has a serious personal crisis, Cris and Charles unite to pull him back together, and the three men discover it’s possible—maybe even inevitable—to fall in love with more than one person at a time.

“Here For Us” is the first in a brand-new m/m/m menage romance series that explores the March/May/September relationship of three very different men.

ISBN: B06X156VN3

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Three men with baggage gravitate toward one another as feelings long buried come to light. Insecurities send one man, Jake, to question himself after having been with Cris. Devastated Cris turns to his friend and boss Chet for comfort. The two admit they have feelings for one another.

This was a drama filled book with a lot of emotions happening between the characters and themselves. There were a lot of secondary characters introduced that at times overwhelmed me. But I figured they were introduced for a reason as in they were in the rest of the series.

It was a complicated yet sweet beginning to an interesting menage story.

Great read.

Their Bounty

(Four Mercenaries 01)
by

K.A. Merikan

— Taken. Prized. Possessed. Loved. —

Clover is an orphan and has led a tough and chaotic life. No stability. No money. No friends. He trusts no one.

His already miserable life takes a nosedive when he ends up in the hands of a human trafficking gang. Someone has placed a request for a young albino man, and Clover is to become the property of a mysterious buyer who will stop at nothing to satisfy their depraved desire. Clover’s fate seems sealed until four bounty hunters appear to take out his captors and accidentally save him.

The four mercenaries want to move on, but when Clover pleads for protection, they offer it to him at a price. In the beginning, the arrangement is all kinds of shady, but as he gets to know the four men who’ve taken him on a wild ride, his developing feelings might become as dangerous as the elusive buyer.

But can a relationship with four such different men even work? Men who kill for a living? Men so full of contradictions?

Tank. The massive ex-soldier eager to be Clover’s Daddy.
Pyro. Wild, tattooed, with a filthy mouth and an itch for violence.
Boar. Ginger, bearded, a big teddy bear who can turn into a grizzly.
Drake. Dark and dangerous, with a tongue as sharp as his knives.

Can these men provide him with the love and security he craves? Or has Clover made the worst mistake of his life?

(Criminal Delights 08: Serial Killers)
by

Michael Mandrake

Deranged birds of a feather flock together… leaving trails of blood in their wake.

Holland has fantasies most can’t accept. When potential mates discover Holland’s bloodlust, it’s too late for them to refuse. Determined to get what he wants, Holland continues to seek a man to fulfill his deepest desire and he won’t stop at anything

Archer is inspired and aroused by the tales he’s heard from his boyfriend. Still, he’s greedy for something that pushes him over the edge. Although this might drive him and his partner apart, Archer’s dark want won’t disappear.

Clint’s love for his job has slipped for years, and he’s pondered change. These days he’s cared more about how to please his man, than the rigorous position of solving murder cases. Clint thinks his attitude will eventually get better, thus prompting him to stay aboard. Still, the constant worry of Archer finding someone new niggles at him.

Putting sketchy characters behind bars had always been Clint’s forte, but when new feelings arise, Clint’s conscience is tested. Furthermore, what will happen if Clint is forced to choose between the love of his life, his career, and his morality?

This book is part of CRIMINAL DELIGHTS. Each novel can be read as a standalone and contains a dark M/M romance.

Warning: These books are for adult readers who enjoy stories where lines between right and wrong get blurry. High heat, twisted and tantalizing, these are not for the fainthearted.
