Review: This is an interesting story that takes the Jack the Ripper story and gives it a twist, throw in an Aristocrat who is determined to help out the unfortunate young men from the poverty stricken East End of London and you get a very enjoyable read.

Archer has inherited the title of Viscount Clearwater and sets about being as different from his father as he possible can. He has decided to aid those men less fortunate than him and with the aid of his butler, Trip, and his head footman, Thomas, he sets about finding a person who can aid him in his quest… and he starts to dig into the gruesome murders of rent boys.

Silas is the young man who helps Archer, with the aid of his friend Andrej (also known as Fecker) as they describe the lives they have lived. Silas is also drawn to the handsome slightly older man, but with their positions in life it’s not something he can dwell on.

I enjoyed this story and was impressed with the descriptions of the dirty smelly East End. With short descriptions we are treated to the reality of the treatment of poor and the lives they live, which is a stark contrast to the cleaner more fragrant world of the rich aristocrats.

The story starts off slow, introducing each character, both main and secondary, in their settings, we get to know what they are like as they go about their day to day lives before they are drawn together sparking an adventure for all of them. I’m not gonna delve much into the story as I really don’t want to spoil things for readers, but I will tell you that as a mystery it’s wonderful, as a historical it’s settings are rich easily transporting you to the dank streets and the dour pubs, as a love story it’s a bit of a rollercoaster ride.

I found that I liked all the characters and that they were a perfect mix with a rich and broad dialogue. Each character has a unique personality; you become invested in their journey and follow along on the twists and turns.

I recommend this to those who love historical mysteries, interesting characters, wonderful story telling and ending that has you waiting in eager anticipation for the next book.

Dorran and Eli’s relationship hits a rough patch when Eli refused to let Dorran see his apartment, Francis the ghost is getting cheekier and stronger, and even worse, Dorran’s brother is arrested for killing his pregnant girlfriend. Dorran has no intention of sticking his nose into the investigation—except that’s exactly what he ends up doing.

The sheriff in charge of the investigation has already pegged Chris as guilty, and he’s not going to look any further, so it’s not Dorran’s fault if he has to do the man’s job for him, right? With a recalcitrant Eli and some help from Francis, Dorran starts looking for the real murderer. What’s the sheriff hiding? And what on earth is happening with Francis suddenly being visible?

Chris’ life is in danger, and Dorran isn’t going to let his brother pay for a crime he didn’t commit.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Francis saves the day!! Dorran and Eli are having a few troubles in their relationship, but the love is going strong. Eli doesn’t want to bring Dorran over to is place and Dorran is trying to figure out what he is hiding from him. Secrets never go the way you want to, but wait till you find out what he is hiding. Trust me you will laugh your ass off. When Chris calls and tells Dorran that he is in big trouble, as in murder, well you can guess Dorran runs to help. Of course you can guess who tags along. Francis saves the day!! I will let you figure out that part.

I will say that I pretty much knew who the killer was, even without Francis’ help. However as always it was a pretty amazing story. It caught my attention and had me sitting on the edge of my seat the whole entire time. I absolutely love Francis, as you can probably guess. Ghost just keep me smiling. Now for a bit there I was ready to deck Eli, but once I found his secret, I basically called him a old softy. This story gives you action, danger and some fun hot sexy times with a bit of touchy feely from a ghost. I wonder if he does watch them when they are getting good.

I had a blast reading this and can not wait to get my hands on the next book. This is one of those books that will be read more than once. And I can guarantee that you will be enchanted also. I would definitely recommend it.

Blurb: Making eye contact with a killer wasn’t exactly how Bradley Danforth had planned to start his day. As an accountant, he craved structure and routine. What he hadn’t anticipated was being part of a real-life murder mystery with him cast in the starring role.

Death and sorrow were part of Max Donohue’s job description, leaving the detective hardened after years on the job. On his latest case, he’s the one stuck protecting the only witness in a sadistic homicide.

One death becomes two… then three. And soon Max and Bradley find themselves playing a deadly game of cat and mouse. Can Max save Bradley from the clutches of a serial killer? Or will the killer finish what he started?

At a Stranger’s Mercy is the first installment of a continuing series featuring the same two characters. It’s a suspenseful murder mystery that depicts detailed crimes, strong language, and adult situations. While this series will include a romance, it’s a slow burn that develops throughout the series.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Bradley is unlike many men I have come across and I wasn’t too sure of him. He was an accountant that loved numbers and their mystery. He had a routine that he lived by and the one time it failed was going to be a disaster. He knew something bad was around him but could not figure it out. That is until he drove by and saw a monster’s eyes. Being a witness to a possible murder was not what he expected nor wanted. Then the monster came for him and it was up to the detective in charge to help him.

Max is a grouchy asshat who needs a personality change. Very little sleep and one nasty murder has him on edge. However when he met the only witness lets say things don’t go the way one expects. Then when Bradley is attacked it changes the game.

Three murders and not very many clues has Max looking everywhere but the surprises never stop. This story definitely could give a reader nightmares. I did not look at the blurb when I started reading this so I was a bit disappointed that there was no sign of a romance, well until the end. Also lets face it these two characters are not easy to connect with nor like. If I had to pick one I would say that I did like Bradley more than I did Max, but that would be pushing it. They are both asshats in their way. Another was when Bradley gave his secret location away to someone that might be considered a friend shows that he might have brains about numbers but not in other areas.

The murders are freaky and down right nasty. The author really put in a lot of work to make it nasty which was a plus for the story. It was definitely unique and very fresh with ideas. It was a on the edge of your seat type of story and very well written. I am not one that reads stories by authors I have never read before but was glad to have read it. I can’t say that I would read this more than once but I will wait to see what the next book has in it. I also never expected who the killer was. It was a shock. I will admit that Max was a challenge because you could see that deep down he was a good guy and truly wanted to help.

The twists and turns this book had going on were a major thrill for me. This story was a great start to a new series and I look forward to reading more.

Blurb: Zane Holden, the founder of Stonewall Investigations, has been haunted by the same case for years. He’s had loved ones taken by the serial killer known as the Unicorn, and his drive to find the monster is higher than ever. Finally, he feels like he’s getting close.

Something else that’s getting closer? His wedding day to the man of his dreams.

Lorenzo De Luca found the love of his life in Zane. He’s the happiest he’s ever been. His career as a high powered defense attorney is at a peak and his daydreams are filled with wedding bells and honeymooning.

It felt like absolutely nothing could go wrong.

But with the tensions from the case rising and a new presence in Enzo’s life making themselves known, there’s suddenly a lot that could go wrong. Zane and Enzo will have to tread carefully on their way to a blissful union. As Zane pushes closer to the Unicorn, the danger increases exponentially, until both men are faced with an excruciating reality: this all has to end one way or another.

The two men will need to come together and find strength in their love before they get torn apart by their fear.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Wedding bells are getting closer and closer, but so is the Unicorn. It would seem that the one that had been arrested was in fact innocent of killing gay men that were in a relationship. Zane’s husband had been a victim to this crazy man which in turn made Zane want to help others and keep people safe. Then the murders kept coming, and when not only a friend but a man he put on the case was killed, it just made Zane go after him more. However keeping it from his soon to be husband was not a good idea.

Enzo couldn’t wait to marry Zane, but things were going crazy around him. When a man from the past shows up Enzo’s fears were getting to him. Then the truth comes out and man is he going to kick some ass, his man was keeping some big secrets from him. However when the Unicorn felt that they were getting close, well the tables get turned.

Talk about twists and turns in a story, wow the ending just about blew me away. This is one of those series that will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat. It has so much action an danger packed into it that you are always entertained. Not to mention the hot sexy times that the guys just seem to give you would set your sheets on fire. I love the guys and the supporting characters in these books. It gives you all you want and lets just say I didn’t expect the killer to be who it was. It kept me guessing throughout the story and that was a major hit with me.

I absolutely loved reading this book and can’t wait to see what other stories this author has out there. He is one hell of an author and his work is one that I would definitely recommend checking out. I hope there is more to come.

Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott

After three years, Snow and Jude’s relationship is still passionate and strong. They’re getting ready for a romantic vacation at home when Jude receives a horrifying call no one wants to receive. His youngest brother was found barely clinging to life. While Jude’s family is rallying around Jordan, Jude is determined to find out what happened to him.

Snow and Jude follow the clues, investigating a side of Jordan’s life none of them knew about…and is far darker than any would have believed possible. They get pulled deeper into the seedy side of life, while echoes from a past Snow thought he walked away from return to offer an unexpected insight into the cause of Jordan’s injuries.

But someone else has noticed their involvement and is furious, putting them both in danger. The risk is high but so is Jude’s determination to find the truth—though the knowledge could very well fracture his heart.

Trigger Warning: This book has a scene that some might find triggering, but the triggers are also spoilers to the plot, so they can be found at the front of the book.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Wow, Rob has taken a liking to a young man named Logan. Logan had had a life pretty much like Rob when he was younger, and Rob can see a bit of him in him. He wants to give Logan a home, but it is going to take a bit to talk Dominick in to it. That is until Dom saves a four year old boy. Family might just grow by two.

They just have to keep Logan safe when his old pimp tries to get him. A pimp that owes money to Dom’s sadistic father, a father who is sitting in prison for murder. How a man raised by a mob boss such as his father, it is a wonder how Dom turned out so fine.

I love how this story is just told. You get excitement and danger mixed in with a cop trying to keep his family safe, plus so much more in this book. It not only caught my attention from the start but I was sitting on the edge of my seat throughout it. I can tell you that this book is one of those that will be read more than once.

I absolutely loved these guys and their big hearts. I wasn’t to sure about Dom’s reaction to Logan but he did prove himself in the end. I had a blast reading it and can’t wait to see what more stories this author has out. I would definitely recommend it and can guarantee that it is one of those stories that will be read more than once.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Dominick went against regulations to save his sister and was now on suspension, the same as his partner. It did give him and Rob time to take a small vacation. To bad he wants to still work the case and he has found a lead in Boston. However it would seem the killer knows they are there. Someone that knows him so very well.

Lots of twists and turns to this story and lets just say it is quite surprising. I was very surprised to find out who the killer was and even thought it was two other guys. Never suspected and damn was it good. My attention was caught from the time I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. When I started reading this story I knew that I had read it before and that tells me it is quite remarkable. I can see myself reading this more then the two times I have read it. It is a bit creepy though with a dark tone to it.

I usually don’t read stories that have dark tones to it, but this one was top notch. It kept me on the edge of my seat both times. I can’t wait to get started reading the next book and I can guarantee that you will love these guys just as much. The characters were what made the story rock even more for me.

Blurb: Andrew Barker is ready for the holidays. His perpetually bright and cheery personality feel right at home for Christmas. He has time off from work and a husband who’s waiting for him at home, what else would he need?

Well, he had no idea he would be needing to sign divorce papers – let’s start there.

Declan Rose-Covington, part of a luxury hotel dynasty, is coming into Stonewall Investigations because he needs help with a family issue. With his mom’s huge holiday retreat around the corner, he’s hoping to solve it before Santa comes to town. The last thing he’s expecting is to enter the detective agency and fall for the strikingly handsome man sitting behind the front desk.

Of course, life has ways of delivering well-wrapped surprises.

When Declan and Andrew meet they both feel an instant connection. Soon, the connection grows powerful enough to push Declan toward a crazy proposition: invite Andrew to the family retreat as a fake boyfriend. Andrew would get a nice week-long vacation out of it and Declan would avoid the judgemental jabs from all the spoused-up family members.

The potential for disaster was there, but there was also a chance to truly make this the most wonderful time of the year. And that was something neither of them wanted to miss out on.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Andrew loved the holidays, Christmas was his favorite of them all. He went all out at home and at work. That is until he found out that his husband had someone else dancing on his pole. So a divorce we will go but when a sexy man looking to hire one of the detectives gives him the eye, well maybe Christmas wasn’t lost.

Declan knew someone was stealing from his mother. He was pretty sure it was his step-father, but he isn’t for sure. So it Christmas time and he was do at the home for the holidays. Lets just say he wasn’t looking forward to it. The one and only without someone else might just be a bit painful. So he asks Andrew, who I might add he has the hots for, to pretend to be his boyfriend. Well lets just see how long it last, the pretend part.

Many twists and turns to go in this amazing book. Now normally I would suggest reading these stories in order but this one can actually be read alone. For a Christmas story you have action, some very hot smooches, excitement and the hope of new love just waiting for you to read. I only found one issue with the story, but it is probably just me. I loved the characters quite a bit and lets just say Declan’s mom and grandmother are a hoot. They are what I would love to have for a family.

I wished this author put these books out faster because they are a blast to read. I get a kick out of the whole series. I absolutely loved reading it and can’t wait to read it again. I can guarantee that it will be read many times over.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: In a time where being gay could become deadly, two men fall in love. A wooden angel has given Christopher the best of luck. Now she was leading him to love, however first they must find out who killed one of the others in the show.

Edward loved and hated his father. His father was the one who led the production and his mother was an actress. She took off when him and his brother were very young. He hated show business but his borhter loved it. However when a sexy magician catches his eye, things do heat up. Then the body of one of the entertainers shows up in his man’s act, well they need to get to the bottom of this.

Not bad for the time period. I do need to pay attention to what books are given to me though. I do not really get into them but I will say that it was entertaining. However other than the angel, I didn’t see much about Christmas in this story. It was more focused on their love and the murder. It was told with a even pace, but the story felt very rushed to me. Or should I say to much added in that could have been better off turning it into a larger story.

I will admit that it was better than what I expected. However I didn’t really get as captivated in it as one should. I will admit that it just wasn’t one of my type of stories. Other than that it was pretty good, and I would recommend it.

Despite the relationship ending badly, he’s come to terms with Peter’s drug addiction and his inability to help. All Mitch wants now is to bring down the Soldiers and the club president, Rocky Cummings, once and for all.

Finn Cummings hates everything the motorcycle club stands for, but he’s unable to escape his brother’s clutches. When Mitch is assigned as Finn’s driver, they spend countless hours together, and the saying proves true—opposites do attract. Finn agonizes over his feelings for Mitch—the last thing he wants is to involve himself further with criminals, not when he wants to leave that world. Mitch tries to come to terms with falling for a member of the outlaw club he’s determined to destroy.

If they can survive the fallout from Rocky’s violence and the investigation, they might discover it’s not a case of opposites attract after all.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Undercover detective Mitch has an in with a nasty motorcycle club that they want shut down. His ex was mixed up with the club and is best friends with the club president’s little brother. He just hadn’t expected the brother to be who he was.

Finn loved his father and the brother that died, but Rocky was another subject. The man was a cruel asshat that needed taken out. He was his older brother but he was also as evil as one gets. When Rocky gives Finn a driver, he had not expected Mitch. He also hadn’t expected to be attracted to Mitch. An attraction that could get them killed.

I was at odds end with this story. The characters and plot were well developed and had the perfect amount of depth to it. It was much to slow paced for me to get really into and I admit it was a bit dull also. The romance was more secondary to the actual story which to me was not a good sign. It was stationed in Australia, but it didn’t come off that way at all. There seemed to be one or two words that were reflected there, but the rest of the story didn’t give that vibe. I felt like the blurb gave away the story because before I even started reading I knew who was what and what was going to happen, which didn’t go well.

I did like the murder mystery going on, but there was no real mystery at all. You know who is behind it and why, so no mystery. Then there was the way in to the club which was way easier than any club I heard of. I hate to admit this but the story felt off to me.

I think the idea of a ex-boyfriend who is a druggie keeping his mouth shut about his ex who happens to be a detective, is a bit far fetched. There are not many druggies who would keep their mouths shut. So there were some holes in the story. It did catch my attention but didn’t really keep it like it should have.

It is an enjoyable read but I am afraid that it did nothing for me. However I will hold out till book two on whether I will finish the series or drop it.

Enzo Mueller was glad to help out with the calendar shoot. His little sister, Nat, has been in remission for years and he’d do anything to help find a cure for childhood cancer—even if all he can do is pose for a charity event. That, and work three jobs so he can take care of her since their parents split a long time ago.

But raising a teenager and having a personal life are two things he doesn’t think can coexist. He’s resigned himself to being alone, aside from Nat, until he gets her through college. After all, no man in his right mind would want to deal with Enzo’s crazy work schedule.

Tony met Enzo when he waited on their table. Ever since then, Tony’s had Enzo on his mind, and when he runs into him again, something clicks between them. Tony’s daughter, Ina, finished her last cancer treatments weeks ago and she’s in remission. He’s been focused on her since before she was born, but now, one man is making him wonder if it isn’t possible to have more in life than he’d expected.

Review: Enzo and Tony have been attracted t each since they met through Hector. I loved Enzo’s hard working determination to make sure his sister is provided for. Tony’s daughter Ina gives Tony the excuse he needs to see Enzo by wanting to eat at the restaurant that Enzo works in.

The chemistry between these two men is hot. When they get together the sparks fly off the pages. Sweet yet sexy this was a great addition to the series.

Fantastic read.

A Vampire’s Heart

(Ellowyn Found 01)
by

Kayleigh Sky

Vampires live.

And they hunger…

Otto Jones, a cop assigned to the seemingly random murder of a vampire, would rather hide out in the nearest bar than waste his time on a dead vamp. He hates the bloodthirsty demons. But when the king of the vampires commands him to work with one of the lesser princes and find the killer, he has no choice.

Prince Jessamine Senera is ready to sacrifice his happiness in a loveless marriage for his family’s benefit… but not yet. He dreams of adventure, excitement, and true love. He lives on romance novels and detective stories and wishes he could drink synthetic blood like every other vampire. But he can’t. He needs human blood to survive and is hated by vampires and humans alike.

As Otto and Jessa draw closer to an entity that doesn’t want to be discovered, Otto finds the heart he thought long dead opening to the romance-loving Jessa. No good can possibly come from falling in love with a vampire, but when a shadowy assailant attacks Jessa, Otto will descend into the darkest pit of the earth to rescue him.

If you like vampires, mythical and urban settings, intense suspense, and happy ever after, then you’ll love this first book in the dark and mysterious Ellowyn Found trilogy!

A Vampire’s Heart is a stand-alone paranormal dystopian noir romance with a satisfying conclusion to the love story and a central mystery that weaves the trilogy together.

Blurb: Homeland Security investigators Felix Jbarra and Pope Dades are about to work their first big case as partners. Someone is creating counterfeit government documents and selling them through a site similar to the old Silk Road which was shut down years ago. As they dive into the case with the help of their friends at the FBI and LAPD, Felix and Pope realize the Dark Web site is selling more than documents. It’s selling death.

When a man connected with the website turns up murdered, it’s all hands on deck and with so many letter agencies involved in this case, coordinating all parties is bound to be a challenge. When yet another agency unexpectedly gets involved, their bosses would find it laughable if it wasn’t so damned dangerous.

Felix and Pope are getting used to being partners but they are well-trained professionals who must learn to trust each other at work as well as at home. When a bomb almost kills them, they have no choice but to shorten that learning curve. From the mean streets of Hollywood to unfamiliar places on the Dark Net, our heroes put themselves in danger every moment, trying their best to protect innocents while keeping each other alive.

Order and Anarchy contains an exciting excerpt from Crime and Chaos Book 3!.

Review: Felix and Pope are back in this exciting sequel as they with the help of other agencies and friends try and track down the owner of Brokendoor dot com, an online buy site where you can buy anything. The most prominent is counterfeit documents that look real and pass inspections of us customs and law enforcement.

I really liked how well the different agencies worked together. It was nice seeing characters from different series all working together toward a common goal. This series keeps getting better and better with each new book.

Amazing details and investigative work lend a realistic feel to an amazing story. I loved Felix and Pope’s characters. All in all it a breathtaking book with plenty of suspense, action and some funny moments as well hot action between the sheets.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Reviewer: Lisa

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

Liam and Mark have been friends since they were small children. They did everything together and there was a heat there that was unexplored. Then Liam and his family moved away. Many years have passed and they always remembered each other. Liam has been doing pretty good at his job with movies but someone was trying to destroy what he has made. He goes to find help but didn’t expect the one man he never forgot.

Mark was working at the Stonewall Investigations and doing pretty good. Although his personal life is not going so good. His latest boyfriend dumped him and he wasn’t to sure what the hell was going on. Imagine his face when Liam walks in searching for help. It seems that the universe has something in plan for these two. Things are going to heat up real fast.

This story has lots of twists and turns to it. They are trying to find out who is behind the email and thinking that the man behind it has done more than just that. All the while his partner is searching for the killer of young gay men. Now this story not only kept my attention from the moment I started reading but had me on the edge of my seat. There was only one part of this story that I hated, but you will soon figure it out. I loved how the characters were just in step with each other the moment they came back together. Once true friends and now so much more.

The story has an amazing plot that intermingles with the one from the first book. I loved the guys and how they are with each other. This is one story that I would definitely not only read again but would recommend.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: A sweet story about overcoming others prejudices about cross breeding with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader interested in the outcome. Shahin is a bird shifter. Like most shifters he’s been taught he will know his mate when he meets them.

Cai is a human and gets set up on a blind date with Shahin. The two hit it off and make plans to get together again but Shahin’s mother is against the two together as she wants grandchildren.

I really enjoyed the support that Cai had and how both he and Shahin wanted to be together despite protests from others.

The story was written beautifully to capture the intensity of the situation and the tender moments between the MC’s. Great read.

Blurb: Hector thought he’d escaped his past and had nothing to fear by posing for a charity calendar, but he was wrong.

Hector Torres is a self-made man. He came from the wrong side of the tracks and had a difficult childhood. Violence and crime flourished around him, but one particular event sent him running, and he’s been looking back over his shoulder for a long time.

He thought he’d changed enough to take a chance and do something good, especially in light of his closest friend’s daughter being diagnosed with cancer.

But Hector is wrong, and the man who suddenly appears in his life might be his savior—or his executioner.

Reader advisory: This book contains reference to physical child abuse.

Review: Hector’s past comes back in the form of Mat. Mat has a debt to pay to Hector and in doing so he hopes that things will blossom between them. I liked how Hector and Mat never forgot one another after they grew up.

Hector and Mat were well matched and I loved Mat’s shifter side. A truly engaging story and wonderful addition to the series.

Fantastic read.
