Blurb: After millennia of hiding in the shadows, the creatures of myth known collectively as the “Others” have stepped forward into the light of day and demanded the right to share the planet humans long ago claimed as their exclusive territory. But the humans have no intention of surrendering without a fight—one that will include genocide. The Others are given no choice but to be ready to defend themselves, and they convene a Council of War to plan their strategy.

But first they must address an ancient and terrifying prophecy: “Heed me well, all of you. Attack the humans without the Keeper and you will fail. Every one of you will become nothing but a memory, a myth, and the humans will truly inherit the earth.”

The Council charges Liam, son of the Sidhe chieftain, with the critical mission to find the elusive Keeper necessary to their survival, but his quest is complicated by the need to find a Keeper determined not to be found.

Marin is an Atlantean who values his privacy, but with the fate of the world at stake, he understands his days of living under the radar are over. Even worse, he must face his past to fight for his future. The last thing he expects is to fall in love along the way.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: A great story of Atlantean Marin who is in hiding since the deaths of his family does not want the title of The Keeper. Despite paranormals coming out soon humans forced them back in the shadows with the threat of war.

A powerful being tasks the others to find The Keeper or all will perish. This mission is given to Liam who is son of the Sidhe chieftain. What he does not expect is his attraction for Marin. Amid evil plans, deceit these two slowly gravitate toward each other.

I loved the fact that yes there are sexy scenes in the book but it does not overpower the story. The lengths that people went to get what they wanted were unbelievable. I loved all the explanations as to what was going on throughout as it gave a better understanding.

Great read.

The Heir Apparent

by

Tere Michaels

The heir apparent to a vast international company, Henry Walker has focused his entire life on pleasing his cold and distant father, a futile effort that’s left him no time for life, love, or making his own decisions. He has just one friend—one dirty little secret—Archie Banks. Raised on the Walker estate alongside Henry, Archie is now Henry’s driver, bodyguard… and occasional lover. Archie is loyal, but he’s about to graduate from college and has plans for his life that don’t include living every moment at the beck and call of Henry’s father. Not even for Henry.

With no warning, a shocking kidnapping leads to tragedy and chaos, thrusting Henry and Archie into a dramatic struggle that threatens them individually and as a couple. Can they find a way to heal the hurt of the past, save the company that is Henry’s birthright, and find a future together?

Unbroken Hearts

(Unbreak My Heart 02)
by

K-Lee Klein

Country singer turned rancher Brett Taylor fought his way out of the bottle, so he could have JT Campbell in his life.  JT’s patience, intelligence, and humor broke through Brett’s walls of depression, and now the once-isolated rancher and his young California guy in search of himself are together on Brett’s Texas ranch.

While Brett and JT are more in love than ever, they’re still dealing with past baggage and learning how to move forward. Brett’s former lover casts a long shadow over their lives—one JT tries to pretend doesn’t bother him. Can Brett soothe his fears with the sort of sappy, sentimental Valentine’s Day JT was taught to shun growing up—but secretly always wanted?

When Halloween rolls around, a costumed night out at the local bar might lead to another romantic first. And on Christmas morning, JT awakes to some sweet loving and the most meaningful gift he could ever imagine. The New Year truly brings a new beginning—ushered in by some silly, sparkly, and sexy fun.

One year. Four important holidays. Two men who have worked hard for the love and trust they share and the bright future that’s finally within their grasp.

London Lads Anthology

by

Clare London

A young man uses social media to contact the men he knew as teenaged friends and discovers a soul mate for his own romantic journey. The most ill-matched couple you could ever imagine are thrown together when they exchange flat-sitting—and turn each other’s lives upside down. A reserved young man struggles with a secret affair until he dares to take the adventurous step of making his heart’s wish public. One mischievous night on a shopping mall security camera brings an astonishing blind date for a bored student. A frustrating delay in an airport lounge—with only two precocious children for company—drives a young man to confess he’s in love with his best friend.

Five standalone stories, five romantic couples seeking a happy ever after. This collection of stories includes humor, reflection, erotic desire, and sweet devotion. It celebrates the diversity and delight of lovers against the backdrop of London’s vibrant and lively city—young “London lads” whose love, determination, and sense of adventure are strong enough to find the way to a partner’s heart.

Blurb: Garry’s at the end of his tether. He’s waiting at Glasgow Airport to meet his friend Will, on their way to a holiday in a Scottish Highlands hotel. Now there’s a ten-hour delay to incoming flights, the seat in the lounge is more like an instrument of torture, and he’s beyond tired of airport food.

He’s also dreading having to apologise for the pass he recently made at Will, his colleague at a London bank, under the influence of too many beers and a long-held crush. Now Will’s been offered a new job offer on a continent thousands of miles away, Garry realises it may be the end of their close friendship—let alone anything more.

To add to Garry’s stress, he’s treated to the company of Emily and Max, two young people who think he needs educating in the ways of the world.

Reviewer: Lisa

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

Garry and Will have been friends for quite sometime, but Garry wants more. He is about to get the help of two darling angels, he never expected. I would love to go on about this story, but guess you should read it. Don’t want to give to much of it away.

It is a very sweet little love story that will brighten your day. I just wished it had not been so short, because I would have loved to see Garry’s expression at the end. It was funny as hell and entertained me quite a bit. I would definitely recommend this book. It is perfect for a short little break in life.

My Life As A Myth

(Seasons of Chadham High 01)
by

Huston Piner

Can a cool reputation really deliver on promises of happiness?

Nick’s got problems. He’s a social outcast who dreams of being popular, he’s an easy target for bullies, and he doesn’t understand why he’s just not attracted to girls. So, after a series of misunderstandings label him a troublemaker on his first day of high school, he’s really stoked to have Jesse Gaston and his gang take him in.

Jesse starts a PR campaign around campus to give Nick a new image, and the shy loser soon finds himself transformed into an antiestablishment hero. While Nick would rather explore his growing attraction to Bobby Warren, he’s forced to fend off would-be girlfriends and struggles with the demands of acting cool. And things at home are spinning out of control as the Vietnam War’s destructive impact threatens to change his life forever.

Nick’s story is both humorous and haunting–a journey of ridiculous misadventures, unexpected psychedelic explorations, and tragic turns of fate. Can a world still reeling from the sexual revolution and the illicit pleasures of marijuana and underage drinking accept two boys in love? Can Nick and Bobby’s relationship survive a hostile time when acid rock rules, status is everything, and being gay is the last taboo?

When Aaron finds Mavis, an emaciated and shy Boston terrier, at a pet adoption fair, his heart goes out to her—completely.

When Christian, manning the adoption fair for the Humane Society that autumn Saturday, finds Aaron, his heart goes out to him—completely.

This is a story about embracing love, whether it’s for someone who walks on four legs or on two.

But when did love ever follow a rational course?

It’s 1976, and Anita Bryant’s homophobic “Save Our Children” crusade rages through Florida. When Andy Hunsinger, a closeted gay college student, joins in a demonstration protesting Bryant’s appearance in Tallahassee, his straight boy image is shattered when he is “outed” by a TV news reporter. In the months following, Andy discovers just what it means to be openly gay in a society that condemns love between two men and wonders if his friendship with Travis, a devout Christian who’s fighting his own sexual urges, can develop into something deeper.

Seti's Heart by Kiernan Kelly (2nd Edition)

Title: Seti’s Heart (2nd edition)

Author: Kiernan Kelly

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Length: Novella (152 pages)

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (July 26, 2017)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 3.75 Hearts

Blurb: A vengeful god’s curse took everything from the Egyptian pharaoh Seti: his name, his position, and even his lover. After many long centuries relegated to a musty sarcophagus, he’s awakened when a graduate student working in the museum where he is stored stumbles upon him.

Logan, working as a curator to fund his education, figures he’s screwed when he accidentally awakens the ancient ruler. It’ll be career suicide to claim the mummy came back to life, but it’s either that or be labeled a thief. Little does he know, those are the least of his problems. A society of archaeologists is hot on their trail, determined to uncover the secret of Seti’s immortality, and then there’s the little matter of an angry god who doesn’t appreciate Logan meddling in his work. But the biggest problem might be Seti himself, who’ll stop at nothing to get into Logan’s pants—and his heart.

First Edition published by Torquere Press, 2008.

Product Link: Dreamspinner Press | Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon DE

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: A grief stricken Pharoah angers a god and pays for it. Seti, lost in his grief of the one he loved being murdered denounces Setehk. Setehk has him tortured, mummified and entombed for five thousand years. Logan accidentally breaks the seal freeing Seti.

I cannot imagine a God being after me let alone someone wanting to kill me for the secret to immortality. Yet that is what happened to Logan and Seti. Danger, action, mystery, suspense and hair raising situations follow these two as they struggle to make sense of the why.

The two things that bothered me throughout the entire book is that 1. Seti never explained what exactly happened to him after he angered the god even though he told Logan he would. 2. What exactly happed to Seti’s lover. Those two details were sticking points for me as I waited patiently for explanations that never came.

Blurb: Ever wanted to spy secretly on other people’s lives? 

Ken doesn’t have a choice: his student summer job is manning the CCTV screens for the new central London shopping mall. But instead of spotting criminals or vandals, he becomes fascinated by a cute waiter from the local bistro who sneaks out to the backyard for his break—and plays sexy to the camera. 

Is he an old friend, or just an anonymous exhibitionist? Should Ken be excited by this naughty peepshow, or will people think he’s a voyeuristic pervert? Poor Ken’s confused and thrilled in turn. It’s like living in one of the movies he’s studying at university. He knows the man can’t see him, yet Ken feels a connection of some kind. It all encourages Ken to continue with his guilt-ridden Waiter Watch. 

Ken bears the suspense as long as he can, until a chance meeting and an abortive blind date provide the explanation to the secret assignations. But will this guide Ken to a real-life chance of romance?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Ken sits back and watches the camera wishing for some action.  Something to help him get through each day at work.  Well he gets more then he bargains for, when a sexy waiter keeps putting on a show for him.  

This is a cute little story that makes for a nice hot read.  However for me, it is just a very short story that gives just a taste of what could be.  In a way it is a slow telling story, but for this story it could also be said to be fast paced.  I am afraid that for me, it just seemed to be too slow. The name of the book is actually right on and makes it funny as hell.  I enjoyed reading it, but wished it was a longer book with a bit more to it.  Other than my issues it is well told, pretty detailed and is a pretty good story. 

 I would recommend it to those who love a long time love story that neither party knew they had.  I will let you figure that one out on your own.
