In Time I Dream of You

by

Gene Gant

Gavin Goode, a promising high school athlete with good grades, forfeited his future when he joined a brutal street gang called the Cold Bloods. The gang’s leader, Apache, discovered Gavin is gay and framed him for murder. Now in prison, Gavin faces rape and abuse on a daily basis as gang members there attempt to break him. When his father is critically injured and Gavin reaches his lowest point, a mysterious ally appears. Cato is much more than the guard he seems. He has come from the future, and he possesses the technology to undo everything that’s gone wrong in Gavin’s life.

But meddling in the timeline has dire consequences, and Gavin faces an impossible decision: sacrifice himself and his father, or let thousands of innocents die instead.

This book features sexual, physical and emotional abuse.

Laurent and the Beast

(Kings of Hell MC 01)
by

K.A. Merikan

Nothing can stop true love. Not time. Not even the devil himself. 

1805. Laurent. Indentured servant. Desperate to escape a life that is falling apart.

2017. Beast. Kings of Hell Motorcycle Club vice president. His fists do the talking.

Beast has been disfigured in a fire, but he’s covered his skin with tattoos to make sure no one mistakes his scars for weakness. The accident not only hurt his body, but damaged his soul and self-esteem, so he’s wrapped himself in a tight cocoon of violence and mayhem where no one can reach him.

Until one night, when he finds a young man covered in blood in their clubhouse. Sweet, innocent, and as beautiful as an angel fallen from heaven, Laurent pulls on all of Beast’s heartstrings. Laurent is so lost in the world around him, and is such a tangled mystery, that Beast can’t help but let the man claw his way into the stone that is Beast’s heart.

In 1805, Laurent has no family, no means, and his eyesight is failing. To escape a life of poverty, he uses his beauty, but that only backfires and leads him to a catastrophe that changes his life forever. He takes one step into the abyss and is transported to the future, ready to fight for a life worth living.

What he doesn’t expect in his way is a brutal, gruff wall of tattooed muscle with a tender side that only Laurent is allowed to touch. And yet, if Laurent ever wants to earn his freedom, he might have to tear out the heart of the very man who took care of him when it mattered most.

Blurb: The wizard Merlin saw rot in his beloved Camelot. He asked aid from his Gods. They answered and, after a fashion, along with a bit of complicated magic, he got Alex. 

Alexander Foster, a modern-day chef, fell into bed exhausted and alone. After a Technicolor kaleidoscope of a dream, he wakes up. He’s under a tree, in the great outdoors, and there’s a beautiful man wearing armor watching him.  

Alex learns the beautiful man is Mordred, and apparently Merlin is waiting for him. So, off to Merlin and Camelot they go. On the way, he hears Mordred’s tale and the man’s loneliness breaks his heart.   

He also finds he can’t keep his hands to himself.   

Then, they reach Camelot and Alex meets King Arthur and Merlin and learns why he’s there. So now Alex has a choice to make: sit back and do nothing…or meddle.   

Meddling sounds good.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Merlin pulls Alex from his world to help Camelot. Upon waking, Alex is confronted by Mordred, a beautiful man newly a knight. Mordred is King Arthur’s son and a prince yet he is snubbed by others and treated poorly.

Alex sets about making changes to strengthen Camelot and cut out the wrongness that has been going on. The changes are for the good of Camelot and the future. I liked the things he changed as they made perfect sense.

Though I liked the story I was honestly expecting something else.

For this man, however, the duties of his profession are accompanied by an even greater responsibility—find Henry and ensure he survives the worst of the epidemic sweeping the Western world.

Now if only Dr. Drake Stilson knew which Henry to save.

Surrounded by fear and loss, Drake is on the verge of surrendering to the inevitable when disaster strikes.

Despite being partners in work and life, Jens Pakkala rarely gets to spend time with Drake. He would love to take his partner and walk away from The Oracle Group, but how can he ask a dedicated historian to give up the opportunity to live out his studies? Then Drake runs into trouble on his latest assignment and Jens’ world begins to crumble. Now he has to figure out how to get himself to the right place and time to save Drake and bring him safely home.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  This is a very unique type of story that I have not had the pleasure of reading before.  I was pleased and, well, not so pleased with it.  Although I have to admit that I did like most of the book.  It is very entertaining and there is quite a bit of surprise and some suspense going on for the two sexy men.  I liked the concept that this book gave and can say that I wished we had it going on.  Let’s just say this year should be fixed.  It is a very interesting plot and I was surprised to find that I had a bit more fun than I would have expected.

Drake has been brought into the Oracle Group.  He is one of the top doctors in History one could say.  Jen is the one who recruited him, but they have become a very hot couple.  Sent back in time to fix the mistakes of time travelers is what they do.  Drake is the one who goes into the past, whereas Jen is the one who keeps him focused.  Sent back to the time of a plague has Jen scared to death.  Not of the actual mission but of the fact they have no clue what they are looking for.  

Now the story itself progressed pretty fast however it was missing quite a bit to make it a top rated story.  I feel that it could have had more content, especially in the end.  It felt like it just ended too fast and there are no signs of a continued story to get further into.  Also you see when our sexy men meet, straight to sex and then into a relationship.  There was no build-up, no development, were thrown into a story right off the bat.  For me I wanted to see that build-up, that development, I also wanted to see a better ending then was given. 

You do get a happily ever after but it just came off very rushed and I saw several sections that could have been expanded to make it a five heart review.  Other than those issues I saw with it, the story is quite interesting and I did have fun reading it.

Reviewer: Pixie

Blurb: What’s a Viking to do when he ends up on a Florida beach, surrounded by a world he doesn’t understand, with a hyperactive stockbroker as his only guide? Go back to Chase’s hotel, naturally. Chase thinks Bjorn is eccentric at best, a lunatic at worst, or just maybe the real thing: a Viking from the days of yore. It isn’t easy for Bjorn to admit, but he needs Chase’s help to navigate the confusing modern age. While Chase is trying to clean Bjorn up and help him fit in, Bjorn’s sworn enemy also makes the trek through time. Jorund is eager to plunder this new land and finish the job of killing Bjorn’s family line, all in one blow. Bjorn and Chase will have to set aside their vast differences and work together if either of them wants to survive.

Review: Bjorn’s triumphant return to his village after long years of A-Viking takes a sour turn when he discovers his father’s dead and his killer has claimed the title of Jarl, beaten back to the shore by a greater force taking to the seas again seems his only option… until he’s caught in a terrifying storm with Jorund chasing him at his back. Waking up to a strange man and stranger land Bjorn can only keep a grip by hiding his fear and accepting the help of the strange man Chase.   

Chase is supposed to be having a relaxing holiday when he stumbles across a man on the beach in old fashioned clothes, a terrible attitude but unsteady on his feet, feeling sorry for the man Chase takes him in but soon learns that he isn’t just concussed but is a genuine time-travelling Viking who has an enemy close on his tail.

I really enjoyed this story with its humor; it’s a great short story with two great characters and a cute storyline. There isn’t much substance to it but its fantastic entertainment, I just loved Bjorn’s creative swearing, ahh they sure did know how to swear back in Viking times!

There isn’t much in the way of a relationship; they meet, they lust, they have scorching hot sex, they get rid of the baddie and then happily ever after, so yeah don’t be expecting a huge romance in these 56pgs but what we do get does make up for it just through the pure entertainment of watching a Viking try to make sense of the 21st Century.

So I recommend this to those who want a fun read that has hot men, who love time-travelling stories that are short and succulent, and who love great characters and a hot Viking tale.

Review: A wonderful story of two young men in college who find out that all is not what it seems and that everything they thought they knew is wrong. Thrust into a magical world full of both allies and evil these must try to survive and complete a journey that has been foretold throughout the ages.

Marcus while sexy and athletic seemed arrogant and cruel at first until you find out the reason why. I felt bad for him that he had to hide who he truly was at the beginning. Toby seemed to bear the brunt of Marcus’ cruel comments. Toby is in love with Marcus and can’t figure out why he him the he does. A surprise request will throw these two together for a rather harrowing adventure into another world.

I loved all the details of the past that went into the books that Toby was a fan of. I suspected that maybe just maybe the places actually existed. I never however suspected another world altogether. This world is fraught with serious danger all throughout as people intent on evil deeds are out to destroy these two young men. I loved how the story progressed and Marcus and Toby worked together. 

I was pleasantly surprised by who Toby and Marcus might be. Some scenes were hair-raising, intense and nail biting, while others were happy, sweet and joyful. Some of the creatures described in this book are horrifying and downright mean. The only thing I did not like was the way the time period would all of a sudden go back five days or ten days especially after a scene where the reader is left wondering what will happen. But I understand why it was done after completely reading the story. 

I am looking forward to reading the next book in this amazing journey to find out what happens next. There is so much that happens and so many different characters introduced that it’s impossible to put them all in a review.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure, action, fantasy and paranormal.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Marcus and Toby’s relationship is tested in this latest installment. The Duke is infatuated with Marcus and tries everything to convince Marcus to leave Toby. But amid the uncertainty of possibly losing Marcus, Toby tries to figure out how to defeat a great evil among them.

Betrayal, deception and danger follow the young couple as the story progresses. It did not surprise me in the least about the leader of the guards. He seemed cruel and without any morals. 

I really enjoyed how complex yet well written the story was, there is a lot going on in this series.  The details and mystery were amazing. I was impressed and on the edge of my seat throughout. 

Loved it.

Blurb: An Out of Time Novel

What began with a dead intruder and a missing scientist quickly becomes the most perplexing case of Detective Inspector Jacob Ofori’s career. Nothing about it makes sense, from the incredibly advanced technology found on the intruder to the scientist’s mysterious workplace, the Temporal Research Institute. Jacob’s gut tells him the TRI is hiding something, and the questions keep piling up: Who would abduct Sanders? What is the strange gate in his basement laboratory? How does it connect to similar gates in the TRI?

TRI engineer Kit Rafferty only wanted one night with the sexy older policeman, but Kit’s mouth tends to run away with him when he gets excited, and nothing gets him more excited than cutting-edge tech—like the intruder’s cybernetic eye. Suddenly Kit is pulled into the investigation—and into a relationship that could jeopardize both of their lives. Kit hates lying to Jacob, but he cannot reveal what really goes on at the TRI—time travel. Faced with time-jumping criminals but unable to share that knowledge with Jacob, Kit turns to a man who knows time travel firsthand: Janos Nagy.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: This was a fantastic read. DI Jacob gets a case where there is a murder but as the investigation begins it quickly is revealed that is anything but normal. Kit is an engineer at TRI. He’s very good at his job and his mentor was the missing Sanders. These two meet when the police start questioning the staff at TRI.

Kit ultimately gives the police a clue by accident that leads to even more questions and revelations, that some do not believe. The hunt for a deceptive killer leads to a revelation that shocks most of the world.

Great characters, hot romance yet tense at times, a wonderful investigation that is detailed thoroughly. I loved this story so much. It was brilliantly written with twists and turns throughout. I didn’t even suspect who the culprit was until they were almost revealed. 

This book keeps you on your toes while it entertains at the same time. I can’t wait to see what else awaits in this series.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.
