Blurb: From animosity to searing passion in a lunar cycle… but can their bond survive? 

Wolf shifter Nathan Kohl’s pack is his whole life. Arrogant and handsome, he avoids commitment to anything or anyone outside of his pack. He works hard, plays hard, and pursues humans as lovers because there’s little to no chance of him forming a permanent bond. However, when Jared Taylor comes into Nathan’s life, every rule is broken.

After a bad experience, Jared vowed to never get involved with another shifter, no matter how much they got under his skin. Despite being physically attracted to Nathan, who’s all kinds of hot, Jared only sees an arrogant, domineering bastard.

A disastrous case of mistaken identity throws Nathan and Jared together until the next full moon. Forced to spend the next twenty-eight days in close proximity, they can no longer ignore the powerful attraction between them. Passion ignites, and their relationship takes a turn neither of them wanted. 

But when the full moon comes, everything might change again.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This author was new to me so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I really wasn’t sure when I saw the cover, talk about a bit creepy. The blurb made the story sound quite different, if not a bit dark. However I was pleasantly surprised to find out just how different this book is from many others. It is not the instant attraction, fall in love, and mating that one normally finds. They don’t scent each other as their mates; in fact I almost believe they have no clue about mates at all. 

This story caught my attention from the start, although I must admit that it had not kept my attention throughout though. As I said before it has this dark tone to it but not so much to distract me. I haven’t really been one for stories like this but I loved the way it just seemed to come together. The characters were delightful but different. I didn’t really connect with them like I should have, but it didn’t take away from the story itself.

Nathan is an arrogant shifter who never really wanted to bond with anyone. He was not really interested in dating either, sex was fine but something more was a definite no. He did however show some interest in the human at the club though. He just had not expected what to happen, to happen. On the night he came across Jared, he got turned down. Getting called away might have been the best, if it didn’t mean their shipment was attacked. 

Jared was as human as can be, and he had a definite hate towards shifters. After one disaster of a relationship, he really did not want anything to do with them. That ended the night Nathan bit him. There was a law, to bite a human meant major punishment, banishment or even death. He didn’t want that on his head, but it would mean close contact for a short period of time. Passion, fire and attraction ignites during their time together. 

I loved the way they interacted with each other, and how their bond strengthened. I liked how Nathan was with Jared; even throughout his attitude Nathan was still pretty sweet to him. I also loved how Jared would react when Nathan had to go somewhere without him. Although there were some parts that were a bit off, as with the fact that a human could not be in the packs home, yet later on it was ok. It just seemed strange to change it. These two have loads of sexual tension flowing around, and when they are together damn can it get hot.

This story just seemed to rock for me. I was surprised to find out that this was not a series because I can see a few characters that just might be perfect for the next story.

I had a lot of fun reading this and cannot wait to see what other stories this author has out.

Blurb: Into the Paranormal World: While seeking out his brother to resolve family conflict, a gargoyle brought up to be a warrior discovers the opportunity for a little fun in his life.

Kinsey has watched for centuries as his father’s bigoted views tore his family apart. Seeing the rift between his parents grow wider than ever, he does the only thing he can think of to fix it, even knowing it could very well cost him his enforcer position. Sneaking into Falias clutch territory, Kinsey searches for his estranged brother, Conchlin. He finds him at a bowling alley. Once he gets in there, the scent of another quickly distracts him—the human Jimmy. For the first time in Kinsey’s life, he puts his own desires first. With some help from Conchlin, he meets Jimmy and slowly begins to woo him from the shadows. Just when Kinsey prepares to reveal the existence of paranormals and that he’s a gargoyle, his worst fears manifest—his father discovers where he’s been going and beats Kinsey to sharing the truth with Jimmy—terrifying him in the process. To top it off, his father offers Kinsey an ultimatum—stay out of Falias clutch territory forever or be labeled rogue. Can Kinsey find a way to fix the damage done by his father, or will he lose not only his family, but Jimmy as well?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the A Paranormal’s Love collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is branched off from many different series. I would start off with Wolves of Stone Ridge first.

Kinsey knows his father is truly loosing his mind. It is destroying his parent’s mating and does the one thing that might just get his ass kicked. He goes to his brother Conchlin who is at the Falis clutch. Sneaking in is never a good thing, but he needs to see his brother for help. Then he smells the best smell of all, his mate.

Too bad his father finds him and gives him an ultimatum. Ditch the human and go home or be called a rogue. Man his father is one hell of an asshat. If you want to know what truly happens, even the sexy parts, read the book.

Charlie Richards has always been a favorite author of mine. Lets just say that she is an automatic buy for me. I have a few favorite characters in these books and they seem to always be. Excitement, action, danger and some hot sexy times are just a bit of what you get in this story and so much more. As always my attention was caught and kept through out the story.

However, and there is an however, there is a downside showing up. This story seemed rushed and a bit on the dull side to me. It just didn’t spark the same old same old with me and I missed it. It just felt like something was a bit off with the story. That being said, I still had fun reading it and look forward to reading the next book.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Ethan is more than he seems when he’s introduced to Grady about his night terrors.

Now I have a huge pet peeve that actually affects my real life. I can not stand people lying. I see no point in it as it only brings pain. This was my problem with Grady. He tells a lot of lies and that completely threw me out of the story in horror.

I was expecting much more besides two characters moving in together while one follows blindly and does not ask questions when needed. There are too many beings introduced at once so you really do not get a feel for each ones place in the story. I figured this was just the introduction and the rest will fix itself as the series continues.

I did like some aspects of the story.

I honestly have no words for how I felt after reading this story. I was just left with a lot of questions.

O.k. read.

Demon on the Down-low

(Supernatural Selection 03)
by

E.J. Russell

After decades of unrequited love, this kangaroo will jump at the chance for a date. Any date.

Lovelorn kangaroo shifter Hamish Mulherne, drummer for the mega-hit rock band Hunter’s Moon, waited years for the band’s jaguar shifter bassist to notice him. Instead, she’s just gotten married and is in a thriving poly relationship. How is Hamish supposed to compete with that? But with everyone else in the band mated and revoltingly happy, he needs somebody. Since he can’t expect true love to strike twice, he signs up with Supernatural Selection. Because what the hell.

When Zeke Oz was placed at Supernatural Selection through the Sheol work-release program, he thought he was the luckiest demon alive. But when he seems responsible for several massive matchmaking errors, he’s put on notice: find the perfect match for Hamish, or get booted back to Sheol for good. The only catch? He has to do it without the agency’s matchmaking spells, and Hamish simply will not engage.

But Zeke starts to believe that the reason all of Hamish’s dates fizzle is because nobody in the database is good enough for him. And Hamish realizes that his perfect match might be the cute demon who’s trying so hard to make him happy.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: This is the best hits collection bundle for John Inman and I have to say, this is truly a collection of brilliant book from an assortment of genres. I’ve read maybe one or two other John Inman books but to be quite honest, these ones have completely blown me away. I’ve rated this overall 5 out 5 – however, I am just going to make note that I also rate all of the featured novellas 5 as well.

All these stories are in the first person but brilliantly written – not once did I wonder what the other MC was thinking while reading all of these stories. The bonus is that they are all set in San Diego and I absolutely adore that city!

There are 5 stories featured, which are as follows:

Shy: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

The story is told by Tom – he is a mild mannered banker with a debilitating case of shyness. At an ex’s part he meets Frank – who also shares the same social anxiety. What ensues is a comedy of errors as the two guys overcome their anxiety and get to know each other.

This is funny and irreverent. The guys share a wonderful attraction which is over and above their shared disorder. Throw in a hilarious Chihuahua with a mind of its own and you got the start of a great relationship. Both Tom and Frank some bad apples in their lives but they can overcome any obstacle. I had kind of guessed the ending – at least part of it – but it is a tad gruesome and had me thinking of the TV show Deadwood. (Any fan of Deadwood will know what I mean when I say pigs!).

Loving Hector: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

The person telling this story is Dillard Brown – he has a nutty family including a mother who insists he’s straight and a grandfather whose sexuality seems to be fluid. He finds a stray dog – which he saves – and affectionately names it Chester while he half heartedly tries to track down the owner. Then enter, Hector, owner of said dog and actually made a brief (albeit nameless) appearance before the dog came onto the scene!

This book is nothing short of hilarious. Chester is on one escapade to another and quickly attaches himself to Dill after being returned to Hector. Dill and Hector’s relationship is nothing but bumpy but the attraction between the guys and their personalities – they are made for each other (quite literally). Then there are the minor characters, Dill’s boss’s and his grandfather take the prize for hilarity while his parents are simply nutty. His mother is completely adorable even if she is in her own little world.  Then there is Hector’s ex (Valdemaro, though I kept thinking Voldemorte), the only thing not funny about this book: it was a good storyline though and brought the characters together wonderfully.

Hobbled: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

This is basically Rear Window re-told (which had been re-told as the movie Disturbia, too) with two young nineteen year old gay guys who happen to be developing a romantic relationship on the side. The narrator is Danny – he had something of a tantrum at work and now has not only a cast one leg from the incident but he also has a police ankle device from the judge after his ex-boss pressed charges.

So we have a bored teenager alone because his father has to go away for work and there are reports of a serial killer on the rampage after young guys. I don’t want to give away the back story because I think the whole “Rear Window” thing is a big give away. When a new neighbour moves in and Danny meets with some precocious young boys the drama and the mystery escalates rapidly. I will admit that it took me some time to figure things out but I will admit the side story with Danny’s father I had figured out as soon as the first clue was handed out.

Luke and Danny are really sweet together and their story is a great ride!

Serenading Stanley: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

This is book 1 of John Inman’s series Belladonna Arms and after reading Serenading Stanley I definitely want to (need to) read the rest of the series. Shy archaeology student, Stanley, moves into the fairly cheap Belladonna Arms so that he could be closer to uni (against the wishes of his mother who lives in the city). There he meets the hot and newly graduated nurse, Roger. Stanley is very reticent when it comes to Roger’s advances and so Roger has no choice but to woo the man.

This is another funny story (though still did not laugh as much as I did in Shy and Loving Hector). Besides Stanley and Roger, there are a whole host of quirky characters including transgender, transvestite queens, and just a few oddball gay men that all call the Belladonna Arms home. This is a lot of fun and very sexy.

Spirit:💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

Time for a bit of a spooky story! Again, this is another book where I had elements of the story figured out where it comes to the ghost. I don’t want to go into too much details because it is a really interesting story that you will enjoy – even if, like me, you have figured out some of the major parts of the big picture, the smaller details are really great.

The story is told from the POV of Jason, who has been left as the carer of his nephew, Timmy, for a month while his sister and her less than stellar boyfriend go off on a holiday. Immediately Timmy starts talking about the man in the walls of his uncle’s house. Then Jason runs into the brother of his sister’s ex-husband, Sam. Sam and his family have not seen Timmy since his brother disappeared. That is where the true mystery starts. It also helps that there was a definite spark of attraction the moment that the two guys met.

There is some drama, romance, mystery, some of the hysterical one liners that I now come to expect with John’s writing and add into that a dash of horror. This is one spectacularly spooky story! It is so damn creepy that I love it!

Iggy’s Gargoyle by Jo Penn

Title: Iggy’s Gargoyle

Series: Milson Valley 15

Author: Jo Penn

Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal

Length: Novella (105pgs)

Publisher: Siren-Bookstrand (21st Januasry 2019)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖 3.75 Hearts

Blurb: Berk Surkov hadn’t wanted to move to Milson Valley. He loved Prague. It was his home.

And he wasn’t a fan of change. He liked to take his time, think things through, and fly helicopters. They said he’d get used to it, he disagreed. He had to admit Milson Valley had some good points though, like his mate, Ignacio Hebert.

Iggy hadn’t been to a ball before, but he was happy to go along, chat, and give away copies of his e-books, especially as it was for a good cause. He didn’t expect to meet a hot gargoyle with unusual eyes, adorable curls, and a brooding attitude, but Iggy happily accepted his mate!

He could see Berk needed time to get used to the idea they were mates, and to Iggy’s chatter, so Iggy would wait until Berk was ready. Unfortunately Iggy may not have the opportunity to win his gargoyle over for soon after they meet, he is attacked.

ISBN: 978-1-64243-618-1

Product Link: Siren-Book Strand

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Iggy, a paranormal gay romance writer, meets Berk, a gargoyle at a charity event he’s invited to attend by Urian Starters. Iggy is a likable guy and enjoys talking to everyone he’s also adventurous. Berk gets into trouble at times with his stunts so the two were well matched. A fae tries to hurt Iggy at the request of a group but Noel is just a teenager with a unique ability that has no where to turn when the group threatens him to do their bidding.

I liked the story but wanted more information about Noel and what exactly happened to him. Iggy and Berk were likable characters that I enjoyed reading about.

Good read.

The Darkling’s Kiss: Part Three: On a Nightmare’s Wing by Charlie Richards

Title: The Darkling’s Kiss: Part Three: On a Nightmare’s Wing

Series: The Daemon’s Descendants 03

Author: Charlie Richards

Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal

Length: Novella (105pgs)

Publisher: Gargoyle Expressions, Inc. (January 7, 2019)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

Blurb: For decades Philippe has lived the life of a thief, keeping apart from society. He steals items for customers…for a fee, of course, which has earned him wealth enough for several lifetimes. Due to his mixed heritage, a volatile mixture of human, angel, and daemon blood—a creature called a darkling—his job is his solace. After a disastrous encounter with a wizard, Philippe has a choice to make—live the rest of his life on the run or commit to a single task to gain a clean slate. Either way, his thieving days are over. Philippe accepts the Council of Wizard’s terms.

He finds himself traveling with Kalylle, a wizard of the second order. Their task is to clear up a disagreement between the dwarf and elven nations, as a war between their peoples would tear Fidelia apart. To Philippe’s surprise, he discovers an unexpected kinship with Kalylle—an attraction that offers both danger to their mission and hope for a future. Except as they run up against one obstacle after another, it becomes clear that a third party is involved, someone with powerful magical resources. Can Philippe overcome the urges of his daemonic heritage so he can complete his quest with Kalylle, or will the machinations of rogue wizards cause him to lose himself to the daemon living inside him?

Warnings: This is part three of a three-part epic fantasy adventure. It is highly recommended that the parts be read in order. This story includes wizards, magic, men learning to have a sense of humor while overcoming dark elements, and a HFN ending. There are erotic m/m scenes suitable for adults only.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is part three and the continuation of the Darkling’s Kiss. Philippe and Kaylelle both suffer multiple injuries due to different battles in their quest to find the Dwarves blade and the culprit who wants a war between the elves and Dwarves.

While I truly enjoyed the adventure, action and danger of the story I was disappointed that it ends with Philippe accepting an assignment from the council in tracking down the main culprit who got away.

I assume there will be another book as this story is unresolved. Aside from that it was a fantastic edge of your seat journey with plenty of passion to go around.

Fantastic read and addition to the series.

Review: Philippe runs into trouble in Croo and has a piece of his soul taken. In the aftermath he struggles to reign in his daemonic half without his angel half. It seems that whoever wants a war is trying to make sure Philippe is taken out of the investigation. With Kaylelle’s help Philippe finds some measure of control as the continue their investigation of the missing blade and the culprit wizard trying to start a war.

I loved this story. Adventure and mystery surround Philippe and Kaylelle as the two grow closer. I like the way the investigation is coming together as the pieces are aligning slowly pointing to whoever is behind everything.

Fantastic addition.

The Cost of Living

(Into The Darkness 02)
by

Emilie Lucadamo

Once people die, they’re not meant to wake up.

For college student Beck Murray, this doesn’t quite sink in until he’s sitting in a stranger’s apartment, reading his own obituary. He has no memory of how he died or how he happened to wake up—all Beck knows is that he’s been dead for six months, and now, incredibly, is not.

He assumes his biggest challenge will be explaining himself to his family and friends. This proves not to be the case as, one by one, Beck and his friends become the target of something evil. A darkness hangs over Beck, following every footstep he takes in his new life. He cannot fight it because he does not understand it. Soon, it becomes clear that Beck isn’t the only person who’s returned to life, and far from the only person in danger.

With the help of a young witch and a mysterious bookshop owner, Beck must learn to overcome the evil plaguing him before it drags him back down to the grave… and takes everyone he cares about with him.

Echoes

by

L.A. Ashton

After one thousand years of listless eternity, Oskar is used to his particular brand of loneliness. But a long walk through Middle America and a few chance encounters will lead him straight to a man he’d known to be long since dead―his childhood best friend, Aranck.

Being undead hasn’t stopped Aran from living life to the fullest. He has all the money and power his charm and business savvy could earn him, and plenty of friends. Lately, though, something seems to be missing. After a millennium, perhaps the world’s shine has worn off—and that’s when Oskar stumbles back into his life, reminding him of who he used to be.

Together the two vampires remember what it felt like to live, all the while navigating a conflict with the local pack of werewolves. A lot has changed in a thousand years, and only time will tell if those changes will bring Oskar and Aranck closer together, or ensure they remain apart.

Sam Burns - Eagle In The Hawthorn INSTAPROMO-35

About Sam!

Sam Burns author picSam wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten year old, it was awful. She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.

If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to research for a novel.

Flashpoint are determined to eradicate shifter rights, and will stop at nothing to achieve their endgame…the destruction of Sage, the epicenter of the entire shifter movement. Flashpoint look set to win the battle, and have their people in place, at the highest levels of power. Sage is ready for them, and has already evacuated ahead of the storm. Now it’s time to exercise their rights…to bare fangs.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Intense and brazen Flashpoint is at it again with the endorsement of certain high ranking members of the us government. It seems Sage can not catch a break and this time it looks as though Sage will be no more after the dust settles. Mags meets his mates Chad and Austin who are both badass. But they meet during a crisis so each do what they can to support the other.

I love this series and all the others connected to it. It’s a wonderfully written saga that has love, despair, action, suspense, secrets, love and the determination of people who will fight for their right to live and defend themselves against those that would see them dead for no other reason than who they are.

Fantastic read. Highly recommended.

Blurb: Kidnapped off the street and thrown into a dark cage, Austin feels like his world is ending. He hasn’t the first clue why someone took him, until a stranger is tossed into the cage next to him. Frightened, Austin reaches out and is soothed by the man’s deep voice. After Holton rescues him from the lab, Austin’s life is never the same. They have to keep moving, staying one step ahead of those who hunt them, but what started out as a terrifying situation turns into hot nights with his dragon warrior.

When Holton is recaptured and returned to the lab, he curses Alric for being led astray. If his leader hadn’t fallen for Tristan, Holton wouldn’t be in this situation. But a small voice in the dark sends his heart skyrocketing, and Holton will risk everything to free Austin, unaware just how much the man will change his life.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Bound Forever collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Holton was lied to and experimented on along with his teammates. His leader had honestly thought what they were going to do was not what they went through. They escaped and his leader found his mate. Holton has lost faith not only in his leader but other things. Then he was recaptured after trying to save Alric’s mate’s family. A family they didn’t even have.

Austin had been abducted right off the street after work. Now he had no clue what was going on and the man in the cell right besides him could be an ass. However what an ass he has. It would seem when they escape that he will follow that man anywhere. That is until he shows him his new and deadlier side. It would seem Holton was now a dragon. Well light a fire under Austin’s butt.

Great and new type of story in a way, but in another it isn’t. It is a unique type of story because the men are human who are turned into dragon shifters. Now how they could do that who knows. Anyway, they seem to act strangely and not very military, so they come off a bit odd to me. It is a very action pact and danger filled story with a bit of sexy times going on. However there are parts to the story that are missing and some that really should have been left out. For one, in book one a human newspaper writer sneaks into a top-secret lab so easily and then gets out. Too flimsy for me. In this book, there was two small humans who save the dragons from getting taken back. Dragon’s that should have shifted out the drug, whereas the humans just knew. Still a bit off.

Over all the book is a good read, however it is not one of my favorites from this author. I was a bit disappointed in it.

Blurb: For decades Philippe has lived the life of a thief, keeping apart from society. He steals items for customers…for a fee, of course, which has earned him wealth enough for several lifetimes. Due to his mixed heritage, a volatile mixture of human, angel, and daemon blood—a creature called a darkling—his job is his solace. After a disastrous encounter with a wizard, Philippe has a choice to make—live the rest of his life on the run or commit to a single task to gain a clean slate. Either way, his thieving days are over. Philippe accepts the Council of Wizard’s terms.

He finds himself traveling with Kalylle, a wizard of the second order. Their task is to clear up a disagreement between the dwarf and elven nations, as a war between their peoples would tear Fidelia apart. To Philippe’s surprise, he discovers an unexpected kinship with Kalylle—an attraction that offers both danger to their mission and hope for a future. Except as they run up against one obstacle after another, it becomes clear that a third party is involved, someone with powerful magical resources. Can Philippe overcome the urges of his daemonic heritage so he can complete his quest with Kalylle, or will the machinations of rogue wizards cause him to lose himself to the daemon living inside him?

Reader Advisory: The Prologue of this tale was offered as a free read in 2014 during the GRNW Conference. Finally available, here’s the rest of the story…

Warnings: This is part one of a three-part epic fantasy adventure. This story includes wizards, magic, men learning to have a sense of humor while overcoming dark elements, and a HFN ending. There are erotic m/m scenes suitable for adults only. .

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I loved this story about Philippe and Kalylle. Philippe is a Darkling, part angel, daemon and human. He struggles to control his daemon urges on a daily basis. To satisfy the daemon part he turns to stealing. This is where he is caught by wizards and tasked to help stop a war between elves and dwarves.

Kalylle is the wizard tasked with finding a way to stop the war on the horizon with Philippe’s help. They start their investigation with the dwarves and find the reason for the threat of war is a sacred blade being taken when the elves last visited them.

Though this story is not complete it was good beginning. However I would like to know exactly what the wizards told Philippe as we are never told this. Other than it was a fantastic read with two men slowly getting to know one another while danger lurks around every corner and several attempts are made on their lives.

Blurb: [Winner of the EPIC Award – Best Horror]
2015 REVISED EDITION

Becket Merriday is a tortured soul: abandoned at birth, abused, haunted by strange memories of a life he never lived, and marked by an uncanny ability to see into the minds of killers.

After a harrowing stint in the FBI, Beck marries and tries to make a new life for himself as a small-town police chief, but the wounds of his past refuse to heal. He can’t sleep, he drinks too much, and his wife leaves him for having an affair with a male officer. When a string of beautiful young men turn up brutally murdered in town, it feels like his bloody history at the FBI has come back to stalk him.

It isn’t until Beck begins having visions of the killer that he turns to Sean Logan—the man named in his divorce—for help, because strangely, only Sean seems to understand what’s happening to him.

*Author has chosen to warn for violent content and disturbing themes.

Warning: This story contains rape, non con and violent scenes from the killer.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Wow, just wow. This story has so much going on. You have Beckett who is a tortured soul trying to overcome what happened to him as a child at the hands of a someone he should have been able to trust. Not to mention his falling out with his wife as he is actually gay but fighting it. Sean, a member on the police force is the one he wants but pushes away.

Then there is the mysterious deaths of young men happening and Beckett being forced to use his FBI skills to figure out who the culprit is. But there is so much more going on than mere humans being murdered. There is another level to the story that takes it further as angels, nephilim and a killer who is not what he seems.

I loved this story minus the non con m/f scene as I’m an m/m reader. Beckett’s true identity was mind blowing but then again I knew there was something more to him but did not know what exactly. The past history of the angels and the fallen was fascinating as was the result that happened when god punished them.

I loved the story and was immersed immediately into a fantastic read that took my breath away.

To his delight, his new roommate, Freddie Dark, is a giant wolf shifter with super good looks and strength. It may be cold and snowing outside, but things soon get hot and steamy in their cabin.

There’s a murderer in the ski resort who’s killing guests one by one. Freddie and Justin are next on his hit list. Can they figure out who the killer is before he strikes again?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Magnificent Beasts collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Freddie was about to go crazy. He is going through the empty nest syndrome. Two of his three younger brothers have found their mates and the third is never home. He is going bored with each minute. That is until he wins a free skiing trip. He is paired off with one hell of a sexy human.

Justin is broke, soon to be homeless and nothing good in sight. Then he won a trip of a lifetime. He might as well have a bit of fun with it. Then he gets an eye of his sexy roommate and well we shall see. Then things start happening that just might end them both.

It is a pretty sweet story, but it doesn’t flow off the pages as it should. It came off rushed and a bit off. Freddie might be an alpha wolf, but he comes off as a paranoid idiot in parts. In other parts, like with his brother, the alpha shows. Also is it just a pack of three, because even in real life wolves need packs.

I honestly not really sure about this story, but it is still a nice read.

Blurb: Nate Smith is a wild omega. A tormented past changed the course of his life forever, making him less than human, with almost no control and a fear of being touched. Had he not been taken in by the Greywolf pack, he would most definitely be dead by now. His lust for an alpha wolf Orion eats at him. After suffering his trauma, Nate was left with a fear of being penetrated, and alphas want to dominate by their very nature.

Orion has always felt protective of Nate, even though the former human made a habit of being alone. It’s difficult for an alpha when his mate refuses his touch and can’t control his wolf. Orion knows he can cure Nate’s wild wolf if he would just let Orion in.

But if Orion pushes it, he will chase his mate away from him, and if he does nothing, he risks losing Nate to his feral instincts.

Review: Because of what happened to Nate he has been fighting with his nature regarding Alpha wolf Orion. Orion takes this slow and steady. Giving Nate the time he needs. I liked this story and thought the interactions between Nate and Orion were sweet and considerate.

Orin also shows up in this story with a mate but disappears shortly after. We find out there was more going on with him that we did not know.

Entertaining and interesting. Good read.
