Blurb: The end is here.

Tenn thought the spirits wanted him to find his fellow Hunter, Aidan, to win the war against the undead. But with Aidan on the brink of self-destruction and Tenn reeling from his lover’s spite, their fated convergence seems far from promising.

Especially because Aidan no longer appears to be fighting for the living.

With the Dark Lady whispering commands and Tom‡s guiding his hand, Aidan slips deeper into darkness. And while the world rallies for its final battle against the Dark Lady’s minions, Tenn finds himself torn between saving the boy who’s slipping away and fulfilling a prophecy he can’t understand—one that will require him to harness the most powerful magic the world has ever seen: the Sphere of Maya.

And depending on who unleashes its power, that magic could either save humanity…or erase it.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Oh my goodness, what an awesome climatic ending. The entire book was entrancing. Numerous POV’s are throughout as all sides are set to stop the other. Not everyone makes it out unscathed.

I do not want to give anything away in this review. But I will say I was hooked from start to finish. The Dark Lady was a piece of work who never should have been in any sort of power. The Violet Sage was sweet but at the same time I had to ask why she allowed things to get so far.

Aidan and Tenn along with the others were awesome. I really have no words to express how impressed I am with this series. It culminates in a beautifully told story of good versus evil and the lengths those people will go to stop the other. Brilliant and breathtaking this story was everything I could hope for and more.

The battle scenes, kidnappings, and explanations surrounding different events were off the charts. I loved it.

On a side note these books must be read in order to enjoy the full journey as each book picks up where the last leaves off.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Blurb: Magic is sin

Aidan desires only one thing: to rule. Arrogant, headstrong and driven by the element of Fire, he will stop at nothing to bring the evil Howls that destroyed Scotland to their knees. But Fire is a treacherous element, and the very magic that brought him to power could burn his world to ash.

Especially with the blood of his fellow Hunters on his hands.

Driven by a bloodlust he can’t control and dark whispers that may not be entirely in his head, he and his magic-eschewing friend Kianna will do whatever it takes to liberate their broken world. Even at the risk of confronting the Church. Even at the risk of losing his humanity.

But power isn’t the only thing on Aidan’s mind. He’s falling for the intoxicating Tomas, an Incubus who offers everything Aidan desires. For a price.

And if that price burns the world down, well…Aidan is used to playing with Fire.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Aidan was not what I expected. He was arrogant and intoxicating all at the same time. His quest to rule was all consuming. He did not let anyone get in his way including those close to him. Intense scenes and gripping events hold the reader captive as you sit there spellbound with the story playing out.

I loved everything about this book. It gave an insight as to who Aidan is and what he hopes to achieve. I was hoping he would mend his ways as he is a little brutal in his quest. But, it went well with the story line as things progressed.

I am looking forward to the next book to see what happens next.

Fantastic read.

Blurb: Magic is risen.

When magic returned to the world, it could have saved humanity, but greed and thirst for power caused mankind’s downfall instead. Now once-human monsters called Howls prowl abandoned streets, their hunger guided by corrupt necromancers and the all-powerful Kin. Only Hunters have the power to fight back in the unending war, using the same magic that ended civilization in the first place.

But they are losing.

Tenn is a Hunter, resigned to fight even though hope is nearly lost. When he is singled out by a seductive Kin named Tom‡s and the enigmatic Hunter Jarrett, Tenn realizes he’s become a pawn in a bigger game. One that could turn the tides of war. But if his mutinous magic and wayward heart get in the way, his power might not be used in favor of mankind.

If Tenn fails to play his part, it could cost him his friends, his life…and the entire world..

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: An amazing story of a young man named Tenn who is a hunter. He has incredible gifts of spheres water and earth, these are magical abilities. His mission is stop the Dark Lady and the minions she created before the resurrection. This includes Howls, Kraven’s, Breathless Ones and others such as Necromancers who joined her fight for a new world.

Tenn meets fellow classmate Jarrett when he comes to aid the hunters with the help of two powerful siblings. This journey takes them to many places always fighting those that would harm others. I found myself immersed in a captivating story of epic proportions.

Tenn’s abilities and a prophecy were intriguing. The Dark Lady whispers to him at times as well as her brother Tomas. There are a lot of characters throughout that are detailed and explained. I loved that despite it’s complex world and characters those details made reading this story easier.

There is death and destruction throughout as the hunters try to complete what they set out to do while at the same time finding answers that may aid them and Tenn.

Absolutely fascinating book.

Highly recommended.

The end is here.

Will our heroes save the day? Or will they lose to the dark forces that conspire against all the realms?

The demon Kinzer is on the run–a fugitive accused of a crime he didn’t commit. He’s lost what little he had left to live for. But despite how futile his efforts against Armageddon seem, he fights on…even when all hope seems lost.

Meanwhile, Trey and Kid are sent to an immortal prison to await sentencing for the same crime Kinzer is wanted for. As immortals work to decide the fates of these creatures, a greater war lingers on the horizon. And with it, will come an apocalypse that will ravage the heavens and the Earth.

All creation is f*cked, and despite anyone’s cries and pleas for mercy, no god will come to their rescue.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This installment of the Clipped Saga has many twists and turns as well as plenty of action and heart stopping suspense. Throughout this entire series I have been on the edge of my seat. Though I will admit the sex scenes took me by surprise with the pain in them.

Aside from the sometimes brutality that goes on I was entranced by the story. I was drawn in from the beginning of the series to the end. Kinzar, Trey, Kid, Hayde and all their allies fight for their lives as well as humanities against Janka and his crew. The fight scenes were awesome and in great detail.

I have never read a series quite like it before as most dial back the horror and details. Not so in this series. You get a no holds barred story that packs quite a punch and leaves you reeling at times with it’s fast pace and the things that go on.

Even though I did not care for the assault/rape scenes and was squeamish with the sex I still loved the series. If your looking for HEA and sweetness this series is not for you. If you like dark, gritty in your face horrifying with a storyline that is amazing this series is definitely for you.

Blurb: MORTALS BEWARE: True to the first gospel’s form, this second chronicle in THE CLIPPED SAGA presents the absurd, the nonsensical, the perplexing, the disturbing, and the gratuitous adventures of immortals with bizarre tastes and inclinations. Brace yourself for a ride on the wild side with a cast of characters who still can’t seem to keep their pants on, even during the most crucial of times.

The demon Kinzer’s got a serious problem.

A powerful weapon, a ticking time bomb, that could end all of humanity. He’s also got a knack for getting himself into trouble–something complicated by a new companion who arrives to help he and his mortal ally on their quest to save humanity from God’s wrath.

Meanwhile, Treycore is on a mission to save Kid, the mortal who he fell way too fast for…something he still can’t make sense of. For the sake of rescuing Kid–and because nothing can be too easy in the demented universe of a sadist author’s creation–the only way Trey can get to Kid is to make peace with his ex, the most beautiful of all the angels…who also still hasn’t quite gotten over him.

Together, they journey through Hell to find Trey’s far more devious ex, encountering the most sinister, wicked, and perverse of God’s creations along the way.

Here’s hoping they can wrap it all up before the final installment…

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: As with the first book this one is full of fast paced action and twists and turns. Trey goes to hell to find Kid and save him from Vera, his ex. Meanwhile Kinzar is on his own mission to stop a weapon that will destroy humanity and everything else.

I was amazed at how well the story flowed. I was awestruck with the details. The brutality at times had me cringing and thinking how could this be, but it works with this series. There is quite a bit going on throughout as it’s a journey in and of itself.

The story almost seems to take a life of it’s own as it progresses. The dangers that follow are edge of your seat worthy. There is no shortage of villains in this epic series as well as good guys to boot.

I simply am awestruck by this series.

Review: Timorn is having trouble with his being king but an emissary unexpectedly shows up wanting Timorn and his group to come with him to the dragon King. Meanwhile Dalannin travels toward the same goal as Timorn. I liked the different POV’s throughout this adventurous story.

The path is fraught with danger around every corner. An interesting mix of characters are inter-spaced throughout this magical and highly engaging book. I loved everything about the story as it progressed further.

Timorn and his sister are at odds with one another due to Timorn and it shows in the way they interact with one another at times. Seih a captain of the dragon militia and the half dragon proves his worth over and over again and takes his duties seriously.

There is a lot that happens along the journey both good and bad. I was on the edge of my seat at times awaiting the outcome.

I found they all worked well together when the time came but before that it seemed a little tense at times.

It was a long and intriguing story that had me enthralled. Yet there did not seem to be any real emotions. But then again with the task ahead of them I understood. All the characters throughout the story both good and bad brought the story to life.

I was intrigue by the plot and the roles each character had to play. Interesting and intriguing this book was a great beginning to the series. I am looking forward to seeing what happens next.

Blurb: Dying at the hands of government goons was always going to happen. Waking up in a dark and twisted afterlife? Not the plan.

Seraphim has the superhuman ability to control his own brain. Or at least, he used to, before his government-mandated brain surgery. The surgery killed him, but life isn’t over yet. He’s just woken up, shivering and alone, in the rain-soaked alleyway of a city he doesn’t recognize.

Fiend is a childhood monster. Dreamed up by Seraphim’s friend Wish, he was imprisoned in Wish’s subconscious until the birth of Wish City, a place for people with superhuman abilities to take refuge after death. Now Fiend is free—and in charge—and he’s on the hunt for anyone with abilities once they cross over.

Eager to play with his new toy, Fiend quickly makes contact with Seraphim. Lost and injured, Seraphim lets Fiend slither into his heart. But under the aching pleasure the two find with each other is a hunger that can’t be denied, and lurking in the shadows of the neon city are truths neither man nor monster is ready to face.

How to Love a Monster is a gay erotic horror romance featuring twisted and kinky M/M sex, a diabolical love interest, and an HEA ending.

Review: This was a strange story to read for me. Wish City was not what I expected it to be. It was a bizarre mix of creepy and grungy. Sera is promised great things after his death but ends up in Wish City. Sera himself has awesome abilities to do anything with his mind.

Fiend, I really have no words to describe him or what he is. He eats brains so a zombie? He sets his sights on Sera only to be attracted to him. I loved all the characters and their unique abilities.

Good read and entertaining.

Review: I have read one interactive story many years ago but I have to say this one is much better. You make Fayt’s, a half human/ half elf, decisions for him as instructed throughout the story. The prison is a dismal place that fills you with dread at every turn. The Warden is a dreadful man full of malice and evil at every turn. The atmosphere is spooky and dangerous as our MC tries to keep a low profile.

Though I was a little disturbed by the non-con I still enjoyed the story and where it took me. I will be reading it again and choosing different options to see where else the story ends besides the one I chose.

Fantastic read and highly recommended but I will warn you there are scenes of non-con depending on your choices.

Now, while investigating Ben’s murder, Jessie is caught between people who would kill to protect their secrets and others who should be dead but aren’t, and who instead hunger for human flesh.

With life and death as close as a minute away, Jessie must work with his estranged lover, Mathew, to learn more about what’s happening…and if there’s any way to fight it.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: First off, I must say I don’t much care for stories that come off dark. I am also not a fan of dark fantasy, science fiction or thrillers. They tend to creep me out. However for some reason the blurb and title just popped out at me. So of course I was captured. I just had to start reading it. I am glad that I took the chance. Although it still kept me creeped out through it all.

If you’re into zombies, then this is probably a story for you. I did find some of it humorous though. Senergine thought they could kill cancer by using nannites. The problem was they mutated and when a person died, they seemed to come back as zombies.

Jessie had been asked by his cousin Ben to come over. He had not expected to come over and find out that Ben had been murdered. Also to find out the ones that died came back to life, well sort of. His relationship with Mathew had been strained. Their relationship had come to an end. However it was Mathew who came to him.

Mathew had worked for Senergine and had been upset when Jessie had not believed him about the nannites. However the fact that the dead were coming back to life, had Mathew changing his mind. He still loved his man and now he needed to find a way to save him.

I had a blast reading this story and look forward to reading more by this amazing author. It was still a bit creepy though.

I was quite surprised by it and would definitely recommend it to others.

Blurb: Raoul Marchand is the crown prince of Charisma, the infamous nightclub in Crescent Bay, renowned for its supernatural clientele. He has the pick of any and all men, but he cares for none. He uses them and throws them away again, and has done so for some twenty years, in the aftermath of a tragedy that robbed him of what he loved most in the world.

Alexx Jameson is an idealistic would-be reporter with the Crescent Bay Chronicle. Presented with an opportunity to write a story on the Marchands, he eagerly grasps the chance to be a real reporter. His friend, Chronicle receptionist Miller Fenwick, suggests they go to Charisma to do a little research. Alexx isn’t sure that’s such a great idea. After all, he’s still under age, being only twenty. No problem, Miller can fix that! Added bonus, there’s a full moon tonight.

When Alexx first encounters Raoul, it isn’t exactly in the way he dreamed of, and he’s sure he made a terrible first impression. But Fate throws them together under unforeseen circumstances, and the attraction between them can’t be denied.

Can Raoul let go of the past long enough to find his future with Alexx, or is he doomed to repeat past mistakes?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is a story of heartbreak and loss yet over time learning to live again with someone else and the coming to terms with the past and betrayal. I loved both Alexx and Raoul, wolf shifter. Raoul’s pain was so intense I could actually feel the loneliness and sadness with each word and detail. My heart broke for him at what he had gone through. I was hoping throughout the story he would be able to move forward eventually and find happiness again because that amount of pain is not good for anyone.

Alexx intrigued me as well as had me laughing when he went to Charisma, a nightclub owned by Raoul, with an older friend and a fake ID. I was sure he would not have been allowed to enter. He seemed sure of himself yet a little wary of things which were to be expected after what happened between Raoul and Alexx.

Alexx wants to be an investigative journalist but works in the mail room. The whispering on the wind not to mention the atmosphere of the book at times left a spooky impression which had me on the edge of my seat as the story progressed.

I was horrified to learn of what happened to Raoul’s previous lover Jamie and the reason why someone setup Raoul to be blamed for it. Such a senseless reason for killing someone if you ask me, but that is sometimes the way the story goes.

I really felt, all throughout the story, that I was witnessing things as they happened as there were fantastic details all throughout. Not to mention the emotional aspect had me going through all the emotions.

I would highly recommend this fantastic story to anyone. I absolutely loved it and am looking forward and very excited to read the next book in the series.

Blurb: Jerricho never expected to fall in love with Rex, the sexy, construction foreman, but he did.

Too bad tradition forbids Jerry from marrying for love. Prince of the clandestine Anzuni demon clan, a Baelso (bearer of children), and a virgin at twenty-four, tradition dictates that Jerry marry a man chosen for him. Despite his soul-deep love for Rex, Jerry has no choice but to follow through with his obligation as prince and marry someone he doesn’t love.

But Jerry isn’t prepared for his dominant, aggressive fiancé who is interested in marrying him only for the future title of king. Facing the reality that he will lose his virginity to the cold man, Jerry flees to Rex for one night of passion. When Jerry finds himself pregnant with Rex’s baby, however, the actions of his enraged fiancé release Jerry from his marriage obligation.

But just when Jerry believes he will marry for love, he and Rex are ripped away from life as they know it. Betrayals, kidnappings, cruel experiments, pregnant men, and the reappearance of the Anzuni’s greatest enemy force Jerry and Rex to fight for their lives, their love, and their unborn child…

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: Wow. Just Wow. I never actually know what I will get when I start reading a book by JC Wallace. But I know one thing, I am in for one hell of a ride. Damn did this deliver.

Jerricho, aka Jerry is twenty-four years old and still a virgin. Due to the traditions of his people he will be marrying the man of his parents’ choice in less than a year. A man he has not met nor loves. Not that it really matters. Except it does. Jerry has fallen in love with human Rex.

I felt for Jerry. He has spent years rebelling in any way he can. But he knows that the time will come when he will have little choice. Finally after meeting his “finance” for the first time, Jerry makes a decision to at least lose his virginity the way he wants and with someone he cares about. And that opens a whole hell of a lot trouble for everyone.

This book went all over the place, but in a good way. There is so much going on. So many twists and turns. There is a lot to keep up on. Like who to trust, who is a bad guy? Those Jerry and Rex thought they could trust turn out to be their enemy. Those they know are enemies turn out to be unwilling victims. Everything was topsy-turvy.

And the sex. Damn, I did not see that hotness coming. Jerry and Rex together were not what I was thinking they would be. No, they are a hell of a lot more steamy than that.

JC Wallace has created an interesting, unique, and intriguing world. The history of the Anzuni is a definite new spin on the demon myth.

The characters are well-developed, not just Jerry and Rex, but also the secondaries. For such a long book it was still very fast paced.

I found myself drawn into the story from the start and could not put it down until the very end. I needed to know what would happen next. Would they escape, would they be rescued, who would turn into an ally or enemy next? These were all things I would ask I was read.

Now I really hope there is a follow-up, because there are some situations left open-ended, that I would like to see explored and resolved.

This rollercoaster ride is well worth the read.

(Ash and Flames 01)
by

Ana J. Phoenix

Asher doesn’t like people, and people don’t like him. He’s cool with that—all he needs from them is sex, anyway. But when he’s suddenly thrust into a strange and dangerous world filled with magical creatures, joining forces with other people may just be the only way to survive.

It’s not all bad though—in this new world, he can turn into a fire-breathing dragon! Which would be awesome if it weren’t for José, the pesky fire elf sharing his fate whose goal in life seems to be to stop Asher from ever having fun. José is hot, though and Asher wants to get into his pants just as much as he wants to get home. But José is also blind, and Asher has no clue how to charm a man without relying on his looks.

Somehow, Asher has to show José that he’s more than a sex-obsessed pyromaniac with no filter between his brain and mouth. Preferably before either of them ends up dead. Civil war rages around them, and finding the way home isn’t going to be easy. And for Asher, getting there in one piece, and with his heart intact, might just prove impossible.

Drake’s a pretty, blond twink of a college kid and he has a problem. It’s his twenty-first birthday and the one person he wants at his birthday bash isn’t there. Flint, his roommate, is missing. Drake decides to ditch his own party and find him. This is the night he’s going to tell Flint how he really feels but where is he?

Flint’s hiding out in a leather bar that’s secretly a dragon den. Things get interesting when Drake finds him, because Drake has a secret of his own, he’s really a dragon slayer. “Slay me,” said the dragon, is a wacky short story about star-crossed lovers and unintended consequences.

Short Story, about 14K words

“Slay me,” said the dragon, is the prequel to “The Live Oak Tales,” a contemporary fantasy/paranormal series set in the wider Stories from Bennett Bay collection. “Slay me,” said the dragon introduces us to the dragons and a bit of their lore.

Stephen Del Mar - 01 - Dark Love

Dark Love

(The Live Oak Tales 01)

Love and family, the two things Dieter wants most are slipping away. His uncle, the man who raised him as a father, is dead. Now his brother can’t wait to bulldoze and sell the family farm. Yet Dieter clutches at the memories of the past, fighting to hold them close. What Dieter doesn’t know is the past can be present and what is dead doesn’t always stay dead. He discovers that Dark Loves wants to live in the light.

“Dark Love” is a paranormal romance set in Stephen del Mar’s Bennett Bay region of Florida. There are witches, faeries, bears, twinks, a dragon drive by, and one very determined fag hag. Once again del Mar gives us the rich texture of his Florida setting that goes from the bayside tourist town of Bennett Bay to the backwater country hamlet of Live Oak. Remember, things are not always what they seem and be careful what you do under the light of the full moon!

The Door Keeper

by

Hurri Cosmo

Although they’ve been labeled as a group of misfits, Minneapolis’ 77th police precinct has plenty of talent.  The problem is, it’s paranormal talent and no one’s supposed to know about it.

Nick keeps his officers busy chasing after all the creepy crawly things that tend to go “bump” in the night, thus insuring the twin cities are safe and totally unaware that other realms even exist. Nick is the Door Keeper and his job as the precinct’s captain is to maintain order in what would otherwise be chaos.

 When said chaos rears its ugly head in the form of a ferocious and brutal vampire, the last thing Nick needs is to deal with a new partner, even if that new partner is as sexy as Arrain.

REVIEWER: Prime
REVIEW: Amadeo is the ringmaster of Cirque Caprice. Jon is described as head of security, but Some people may think, like me, that means Jon is like the Cirque’s personal cop/security guard, but he is more what I would call the occupational health and safety officer and staff security rolled into one. I say OH&S officer because Jon is busy pissing Amadeo off by not clearing the safety procedures for the new stage set up. Because of this, Amadeo thinks Jon is a menace and yet at the same time he has the niggling suspicion that Jon is familiar.

I liked this story a lot. I have to admire the fact that Jon really knows how to hold a grudge despite the fact I want to kick him. Amadeo doesn’t use his powers to influence people without permission so I was feeling sorry for the poor guy in a number of places. I found the thread of where Jon flagging Amadeo’s background checks has set some bad things in motion against Amadeo a bit pointless.

Regardless, it helped Jon get over himself (give him the kick I wanted to give), so in the end things worked out as they were meant to between Amadeo and Jon.

Blurb: Gamer Elijah Burrows has rather seamlessly taken over the life of his game character, Elian Surgis, in the world of Timiria. Alongside his lover, the lupine mage Sarin Eckhert, Elijah leads survivors of Sarin’s mystical order through the wilds of the province of Tasmorum. They manage to stay just one step ahead of Timiria’s monarch, King Mirov, who seeks to destroy every magic-wielding soul connected to the Labyrinthine Order.

From encounters with a mysterious group of traders on the road, to a revelation of epic proportions, it’s a miracle Elijah has any time to explore his relationship with Sarin. Then Fate throws a wrench into the mix: the appearance of another “traveler” — another gamer stuck in the game world Elijah now calls home. But this particular gamer has ulterior motives that have nothing to do with the Order’s survival.

Review: He was now getting use to this new world and his lover Sarin. Sarin was a lupine mage and he was helping Elijah protect and lead the survivors to a safe place. They came across a woman pretending to not only be a captured wife but a servant. In fact, she was indeed royalty. They were trying to get the end of Mirov out of the way. He was an evil lord that wanted magic-wielding souls.

Sarin and Elija have very little time exploring their lives together. Elijac was also Elian a surprising twist. Sarin and Elian had been lovers for a while. Sarin had seen something in him that made him want to release him from the prison he set in and love him for life. Now he was here with Elija/Elian in more than just love, but protection and survival. The twist to this story was another gamer had found his way into their lives. Except he had chosen to work for Mirov. A gamer that has ulterior motives that might just get them all killed.

This story was a blast to read and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next story. I love the way it just comes together. I also love Elija and Sarin. They are so sexy and protective of each other. They are in love and are just trying to survive and keep their friends safe. They are trying to get rid of evil and give the world back to those who intend goodness.

I would recommend reading this story if you love dark fantasy, paranormal, magical beings, earthlings that get caught in a world that they created, excitement, adventure and suspense, danger coming at them all and hot sex.

Blurb: From the moment he sees a photograph of Dalton Manor, a 17th-Century estate located in the picturesque English countryside, Joel Howard knows he must stay there while on vacation, in spite of the lack of nightly distraction to be had in London’s gay village.

After arriving in England with his friend Shelley, Joel immediately arranges to visit the grand estate, and during a tour, he sets eyes on the portrait of the handsome Patrice Dumont and his lovely young bride, Rosalie, the owners of the manor three hundred years ago.

Joel cannot explain the emotion he feels as he stares at the portrait, or his particular obsession with an ash tree he views on the property later that night. He also can’t explain why the ancient estate seems to talk to him, literally, or why the ghostly voice coming from inside the walls keeps calling him by the name of Andre.

As the moments tick by, Joel comes ever closer to the edge of danger and soon learns the answers to his questions…in every horrifying detail…

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: A beautifully written story of a love so strong not even death could break it. Patrice Dumont married a woman at their families insistence. A few years into the marriage he falls in love with a gypsy named Andre. Unfortunately, his wife Rosalie, who is a powerful witch, finds out and has Andre hung. Stricken with grief Patrice tells his wife he’ll never love her. She curses Patrice and he remains buried underground for hundreds of years until Joel sets him free.

I was appalled at what lengths Rosalie went to in order to keep Patrice hers. She seemed a little demented to me in thinking she’d get Patrice to love her if she did away with Andre. Not to mention the curse she put on Patrice.

Joel started hearing and seeing things as soon as he arrived at Dalton Manor. I was in awe at the breathtaking details of the manor as well as Joel be able to see different things that had happened in the past. Hot and passionate sex added a spicy element. Great read.
