Blurb: Prince Owin

Being a fierce predator—not at all adorable, despite my graceful stature—the last thing I needed was a bodyguard. Especially a wolf shifter, whose presence alone was an insult to my princely principles. As Prince of the Ocelot Shifters, I prided myself on my infallible feline instincts, uncompromisable dignity, and flawless fashion sense. If having a canine follow me around at all times wasn’t bad enough, I now faced the most important moment of my entire life. The time had come to prove I was worthy of my crown. If only I could find a way to get rid of the pesky bodyguard.

Grimmwolf

When the King of All Shifters asked me to guard Prince Owin, I admit I had no idea what to expect. Cat shifters tend to be a little intense, not to mention kinda cranky. Owin was no exception, though he seemed crankier than most. Being his bodyguard was proving to be one of the greatest challenges of my life—but not nearly as great as convincing him there was something special between us. When Owin is faced with a perilous quest to prove his worth, I was determined to keep him safe, even if the same couldn’t be said of my heart.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: The king has definitely been up to something. He has sent Prince Owin, ocelot shifter and his trusty bodyguard on a quest. The problem was Owin is a pain in the ass. He had even tried to shove his bodyguard off a bridge one time, to bad he forgot that wolves can swim.

Where as Grim is the next alpha to be in his pack and will be a prince as well. He enjoys driving the adorable ocelot up the wall. He likes the guy but loves to mess with him just as much. These two on a quest that might get them killed or at least killing each other might not have been the best plan but then again.

When I was given this story I didn’t glance at the blurb, just looked at the title. I am not a fan of stories that are historical or close to it, so one glance at the title and cover, well lets just say I almost pitched it back. However I have read this author’s work and even if it has a serious tone to it, there is more humor to have you laughing your ass off. Which is exactly what this story had going on.

I liked Owin more than I thought I would but once you get to know him, you can tell he hides quite a bit. It is a fascinating but strange story that caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end.

I had a blast reading this and would definitely recommend it. I can also say that this one will be read many times over.

Blurb: Being a new member of the undead sect has its ups and downs, something that newly embraced Akio Lee is finding out first hand. Being able to spend eternity with his beloved Vincente, the man who introduced him to life in the nightside, is a definite up. Having to feed on strangers? That’s one of the downsides, and something that Akio is finding difficult to swallow. But what other option is there for a recently wed vampire couple who need blood to survive?

Finding a new donor perhaps? One who comes into the lifestyle willingly, as Akio had done, and is open to the unique and sensual relationship that develops when three men have a blood bond. A man who can exist in both the nightside and the dayside worlds. A man like Ian O’Keeffe, the handsome caretaker of the manse Akio and Vincente now call home? Ian seems to tick every box Akio and Vincente have—he’s comfortable around vampires, he’s obviously into men, he’s drop-dead gorgeous, he’s more than a little mischievous, and he’s human. Mostly.

But will the outgoing handyman be willing to offer two vampires his vein, his body, and his heart?

Review: Nightside, An Eerie Vampire Tale is a novella by VL Locey, and is from the same world as her Shifters of Lake Eerie series, although this is fine as a standalone. Its been a long while since I’ve read the Lake Eeries stories and my memory of them is quite sketchy and even so I had no issues with this novella. Although there were a number of fun call backs that did trigger my memories of the previous Eerie Tales.

Generally, I love VL Locey and everything she writes. And while I did enjoy Nightside, I have to admit that I didn’t get the usual thrill of excitement and chemistry that I’ve come to expect from Locey’s writing. I suppose I shouldn’t always expect to just connect and a love a book, because it found that it took me approximately 40% of the book to really get on board with the characters. I’m not sure what it was that was missing for me because the characters worked really well together, and I found their romance worked well. All I can say is that there was something missing for me personally. This is a little odd, because on top of loving many of Locey’s books, I also happen to love paranormal stories and I also love to read a menage romance on occasion as well.

The story starts off with Akio Lee. He has only recently become a vampire, after being turned by his beloved Vincente, so that they can spend the rest of their existence together. However, life as a vampire isn’t always simple. In Locey’s world, the vampires are truly the undead as in the old school vampire stories, this means that Akio and Vincente need a human blood donor. They want to find a human who is not only a willing donor, but is also willing to be open to the sexual pleasures that can also come about from the intimate act of feeding. Vincente wants the best for his beloved Akio, and while he is more cautious being the older, mature vampire of the two, he and Akio are on the same page in terms of what they want and need both emotionally and physically.

I think this is where things fall apart for a bit for me, because Akio had once been Vincente’s blood donor when he was human and now the couple want to find another human to not only be a donor but is also open to the possibility being a third member in their relationship. To me it becomes something of a vicious cycle.

If nothing else the paranormal community of the Eerie shifters and vampires is quite quirky. There is something about it that is almost Gothic about the world that Locey has created which has left me intrigued. Despite my thoughts on this novella (because it’s impossible to love everything), I’m definitely keen for more.

Howling On Hold

(Mythmatched Universe)
by

E.J. Russell

Sometimes it’s harder to teach a young dog new tricks.

That’s why werewolves embark on a Howling: a three-year rite of passage in which they’re sent to a group residence to wrestle with their wolfy instincts and assimilate into the Wider World. But Tanner Araya’s Howling is almost over, and he could be called back to his remote pack at any moment. His twenty-first birthday might be his last chance to act on his strongest instinct and finally kiss Chase Denney.

Chase is RA at the Howling residence affectionately dubbed “the Doghouse,” and he takes his job seriously. So seriously that when he realized he was developing feelings for a resident, he forced himself to keep Tanner at a distance. But now that Tanner’s twenty-one, he’s not Chase’s charge any longer. They could be friends or—if Chase is lucky—something more. At least until they both return to their home packs for good, as tradition demands.

It would take a miracle for them to get together—especially when the other Doghouse werewolves insist on “helping.”

Warning: Many Frisbees are harmed in this story, forgiveness is not always easier than permission, and the five-second rule does not apply.

Blurb: Best Christmas gift ever: Finding out dragons exist and one of them is your fated mate.

Kymar
Weary from centuries spent searching for my mate, I hid away in a mountain cabin until an offer from a friend leads me to the most exquisite omega I have ever seen. From the moment our eyes meet, all I want is to make him mine. A well-timed storm leaves him stranded in my lair, but when the snow melts, he insists on returning to his human life. I’m convinced we’re fated for one another. Can I make this stubborn young man believe it too?

Holden
I rode on a dragon’s back. A real, live dragon. In his human form, Kymar is so gorgeous I can hardly breathe around him. I’m drawn to him by a force too strong to ignore, but, magical creature or not, I can’t get involved with him. Happiness never lasts. I’ve learned that lesson again and again. After I walk away, my longing to return grows worse every day until I start to wonder if I can find to courage to believe what my heart and my dragon say is true—Kymar and I are meant to be together.

Purchase Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Review: The Snow Dragon’s Mate is the second book in Silvia Violet’s Lonely Dragons Club series. The books works as a standalone, although we met both MC’s in book one and we also have a few scenes with them as well. However, by and large this is the romance of Kymar and Holden.

I like the premise, which is a group of dragons who are about 1000 years old all long for their mates, living rather solitary lives except when they get together on occasion. With the coming Christmas season gives at least a couple of dragons hope for their HEA. This is a totally enjoyable read for anyone that likes shifters and m-preg but not looking for anything too heavy. This is just purely a romance without no angst.

Like with the first book, this is a relatively quick holiday read and you read in the blurb is essentially what you get, so I’m not going to get into too many details.

I totally loved the first book in this series and quickly had to read this one as well. Honestly, I can’t wait for book three either. If you are intrigued by a Christmas story with an alpha shifter and his omega human mate and throw in some M-preg then you should probably give this one a go. The only word of advice I will give is to those that don’t like insta-love (i.e. the whole fated mate thing in shifter romances) or pushy alpha getting their omega partner into bed. Although, I will admit that Holden is refreshing in that he does push back against the mate bond.

Kymar and Holden meet by chance. Kymar has been asked by his friend Laszlo to pick up a pesky, clingy omega (not Holden) and Holden is checking up on his best friend after Roman had gone off with an alpha he didn’t know (totally against his usual behaviour). Holden is definitely intrigued and instantly attracted to Kymar when he learns about dragon shape shifters by chance in a baptism of fire. Kymar is equally intrigued by Holden, but being a dragon he is sure that there is more between them than simple attraction. Holden isn’t adverse to one night stands and so he is happy to go and spend the night with Kymar. The only problem that Kymar really has is that he has to convince that this isn’t a one time thing and that they have something very important between them.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Jayden and his little sister had managed to escape the evil they had lived in. Thanks to another brother who they were forced to leave behind. He was lost in so many ways and thinks that he is to broken to be of any use. Then he meets his mate.

Rhy had many secrets and one of them most people hated. He was a hybrid and one part of him was the part that scared the crap out of others. When he meets his mate, he tries to hide it. By hiding it might just get his ass kicked.

It gets to be confusing trying to figure out who everyone is. I know that Jayden’s brother was the reason he couldn’t speak, but it came off that it was not his brothers fault. However you find out that it is not what you think. I just couldn’t figure out who was who in most of the story.

However this story was different in the way that they are elements. However you have an alpha who is tough and an omega who is what an omega is suppose to be, sexual wise. But it is not true in some parts of the story. Jayden was a feisty one and I truly like him. I did like his mate, but there were some parts of him that drove me nuts. I must admit that one has to read the previous books to figure parts of the story. However it was not as remarkable as they should be. I didn’t remember any of the previous stories which is not a good sign for me.

Over all I did like the story but not as much as I should. What I want to know was what happened to the one brother they needed to save. It left me questions without answers, which was another bad sign.

Blurb: Sonny and Leo are settling into their relationship, but there are just a couple of problems. Leo hasn’t claimed Sonny as his mate, and Sonny hasn’t met Leo’s family. Sonny may be a talented kitchen witch that can make perfect honey cakes, but he can’t read his bear’s mind. All he knows is that Leo isn’t acting like a shifter that has found his mate.

Every day, Leo fights with his bear about claiming Sonny. A long courtship isn’t something that shifters usually do, but Sonny is a witch, not a bear shifter. Leo doesn’t want to move too fast and scare his mate off. Then there’s his family. He knows if his family gets a whiff of their relationship, they’ll descend like the pack of bears they are. Leo is learning to be more confident in himself, but he’s afraid to take a chance and ruin the best thing that’s ever happened to him.

A family gathering to celebrate Christmas and the winter solstice may change everything. Well, it might if annoying siblings, self-doubt, and powerful eggnog doesn’t ruin it all.

Review: Sonny and Leo are mates but neither has told the other. Sonny is afraid that it might not be true since Leo didn’t introduce him to his family, however Leo is afraid his family will run his mate off. Sonny is a witch where Leo is a bear shifter, and never mention honey cakes to a bear shifter.

These two are so cute that it isn’t the honey cakes that gives one cavities. Leo’s family could jump of a bridge the way they act towards Sonny. It is a good holiday little story that will be read many times over.

I enjoyed it quite a bit and can guarantee that it is one of those stories that will be read many times over. I just wished it was longer.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Brac Pack 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 connected to Brac Village, Brac Pack Next Gen, Zeus’s Pack, Christian’s coven, Demon Warriors and many more.

Johnny and Hawk have been mates for a very long time and they were truly happy. However there was one thing Johnny wanted most of all, a child. Santa is on his way, lets see what happens. And at the same time Brady is falling for his fathers friend. However it turns out that Harmon is more than what he thinks. Brady is Harmon’s mate. Now if only his father would except it.

Santa has an evil brother, who knew. First off I was glad to read about Johnny once more, he is always a gift to read about. Now I liked hearing about these guys, but the way it was written made it come off jumbled. You hear about Johnny, Hawk and North, then switch to Brady and Hamon. This went back and forth till the end. I didn’t care for it and it made the story go down in regards to it. Had it been one story and then an extra story at the end it would have been better off. I also think that Brady and Hamon should have just gotten their own full story instead of a hit and run.

Over all it was adorable but it didn’t do much for making me love it. I guess no one can be a complete hit with all their stories but this one just made a big flop for me.

Blurb: As the only heir to the Harrington legacy, Tom Harrington always knew he’d have to step one day and become the man his grandmother trained him to be. He just had no idea that there was a part of his family’s legacy that he knew nothing about, nor had he been trained for. When he learns he’s the next time keeper, he accepts it as part of being a Harrington. He just wished he knew what a time keeper was.

Lord Rogan Behr had served on the shifter council for ten years, far less than the other council members. When the new time keeper arrives, he quickly realizes that the sexy man is his mate. Unfortunately, he realized it too late to stop his bear from claiming the man. Now, he has a pissed off mate with more questions than he has answers.

When threats are made, Rogan does everything he can to protect his mate, but it’s not enough. Tom and his friends are still attacked and Rogan is kidnapped. He can only hope that being a time keeper will keep his mate alive because living without Tom isn’t something he plans to do. It would help if they could figure out who is after them.

Review: Tom’s grandfather and mother had passed on leaving him with his grandmother. She was the true constant in his life. A life that had a few secrets he is soon to learn about. When she passes on, Tom is left being the Lord Harrington. A position he didn’t want but was soon to find that he couldn’t pass it on.

Rogan is a bear shifter and part of the council. Shifters were never truly meant to live in the world that Tom lives in. However when Tom’s grandfather passed on the gateway home closed. Only when Tom turned twenty-five could it be opened once more. However danger comes at them from all over.

It is quite different then any other story I have ever read before. It is quite unique but then again it is written by an amazing author. An amazing author who has managed to give her readers a world that any one would love to be in. The characters were well rounded but a bit nutty. I wished that we would have seen what happened to the evil in this story, but my imagination took over. It is a well told story that was captivating and fun. It gives you action, danger, pissed off alpha shifters, a bit of drama and some hot sexy times.

I enjoyed reading this and can’t wait to see what the next book has going on. I would definitely recommend this story. I can guarantee that this is one of those stories that will be read many times over.

Review: In this exciting addition to the Spirit of Sage series Kobi is on a mission after Mr. Osaki has his sister killed. Revenge is high on the list as is stopping Mr. Osaki from reigning anymore terror. First plan is to save the new children brought in, next enlist aid and take down Mr. Osaki once and for all.

Together with the Serpent’s Creed and Two Spirit Crew along with others they might just stand at chance. I absolutely this story. Kobi was fierce. I adored how he and Morgan talked to each other. It was sweet when he became tongue tied at times.

The Creed and Two Spirit definitely knew what they were doing during the fight scenes. I enjoyed reading about all the characters I have come to love and admire for their determination not be in the shadows any longer and to protect themselves from those that would do them harm.

I can not wait for the next book to see what happens next.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Lux has so many things pulling him into so many directions. He has a mate but is hesitant about mating, but damn if the dragon isn’t fine. He has had a gift his entire life, but he tries so hard to deny it. But they were getting stronger ever since he met Merek. Merek feels that he has let so many down that it is causing problems with his mating. He wants to protect his mate but he needs a good swipe to the head.

It would be an amazing story had it been more developed. It was too short which was a bit disappointing, however it still gave a lot to like. I didn’t care for Marek and his attitude though.

The story starts in a weird place and if you haven’t read the previous books it does get confusing. The problem for me was that they were not as memorable as they should have. I know I read the other stories but can’t remember a one. Which is a bad sign for me. Other than my issues with it, it is still a good story.

Blurb: Foxes are vermin.

Australian sheep farmers regard them as an enemy to be shot on sight and hung from the branches of an old gum tree.

But not all foxes are just foxes.

Connor Coutts could be the last surviving male Furborn in Victoria, maybe in the whole country, a heavy bur-den for a teenager. His life’s path is clear— protect what’s left of the Furborn line. That is until someone new arrives at the MacKenzie sheep farm. Spencer MacKenzie, with his long black hair and gothic style, is a strange sight in Connor’s forest, but Fate throws the two teenagers together to save their families.

Can Connor trust Spencer to keep his life-or-death secret, or will he hang on the tree?

Review: Furborn is a standalone young adult novel by Isabelle Rowen. This isn’t your usual paranormal, shape shifting human novel. There is something rather laid back about it, which makes it feel so obviously Australian (at least to me) and as a reader we aren’t being led to some massive apocolytic event and true mates. Instead this is a story about two teenage boys living out in the country on a farm. The setting made me think of classic Australian writer Colin Thiele, who I grow up reading books such as Storm Boy (Mr Percival the Pelican on the Coorong!) and Sun on Stubble (thought about this one as it was based around farm life, hence the title).

Foxes have always been the bane of farmer’s in Australia ever since they were introduced on the large island nation by early settlers. But, not all foxes are just foxes. Some foxes also have human skin. With an explanation of shape shifters that compares them to the myth of Selkies from Scotland, the scariest part of this story is the Furborn having to go against the hunters who need to get rid of the foxes that decimate chickens and the like, as well as damaging crops and fences. After all, many farmers believe that the only good fox is a dead fox.

Connor Coutts comes from an ancient line of furborns who turn into foxes. He’s a teenager on the cusp of being a man. There aren’t many left, and his grandmother – the matriarch of all that is left of his family – will do whatever it takes to ensure the family’s survival, now and into the future. Connor’s life turns upside down when Spencer Mackenzie arrives at the Mackenzie Sheep Farm. The Coutts are almost like a local legend and so Spencer’s grandfather finds Spencer and Connor hanging out together rather amusing.

Connor’s friendship with Spencer comes with a lot of changes. The two young men start to explore some more romantic feelings, while Connor knows he has to do all he must to protect his secret and his family. As their lives intertwine Connor begins to realise that perhaps there is another path for him in life. Being a teenager is difficult, but being a teenage furborn is stressful with so much secrecy and expectation.

I honestly didn’t know what to expect but I loved it, I could not put this down. The writing was so emotive without overloading the reader with more angst than necessary. There is so much sweetness and naivety that makes this a beautiful coming of age story. It just so happens that one boy is human and the other boy can turn into a fox.

For anyone that is looking for some YA fiction which doesn’t lead to a heap of post-apocolytic drama but still want your shape shifters, then this is a good book for you. The setting, out in regional Australia on farms, felt so wonderful and was really realistic. I think that was my favourite part of the book.

Blurb: Dear Satan Claus…

That’s how the letter Satan received starts. The little girl who wrote it asking for her father to be happy again meant it for someone else, and while that’s obvious, Satan doesn’t care. Santa will never find out, as long as Satan’s nosy assistant, Jasper, doesn’t tell him. Satan isn’t sure why he decides to watch Zoe and her dad, except that he’s bored and lonely. He surprises himself when he moves into the house next to theirs and introduces himself as Sam—because he couldn’t exactly give Riley his real name, could he?

Riley has been divorced for years, and he doesn’t have time for a relationship. He has trust issues and no will to get over them, not when his daughter is the center of his life. Then a new neighbor moves in, and he’s adorably awkward and sexy. Riley tries to keep Sam at arm’s length, but he can’t help but fall in love with him, and he’s pretty sure Sam is falling for him, too.

Then Sam confesses his real name is Satan, and that he’s the king of Hell.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Zoe wanted a doll, Lego’s and for her dad to be happy for Christmas. However she made one little mistake in the name. Now Satan was probably going crazy but he wanted to give the little girl what she wanted. To bad for him he had no clue how to make her father smile. Time for a walk on the human side.

Riley has been divorced for three years and had partial custody of his daughter. He never wanted to trust any man again. Then in walked Sam, but Sam is Satan with a big secret.

When I first got this book I swear I kept looking at it wrong, till I realized it said Satan instead of Santa. I got a kick out of this story and lets just say that Satan was a cutie. He made me smile and lets face it so did the cat. It was entertaining as hell and I spent part of the time laughing my ass off.

I had a blast reading this and can guarantee that it will be read many times over and not just at the holidays. It was a big hit with me and I can’t wait to read it again now. I also can’t wait to see what the next story this amazing author is going to come up with.

Blast and his friends in Sage have a tough time fending off Osaki’s hunters, since the collector is distrustful that his former pet, Xian Lu, is up to the mission. Xian Lu has protected Surano for years, a promise made to Surano’s mother, and is conflicted. Can he defy Mr. Osaki?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This was an intense story of those tasked with a mission they do not want to do but are terrified of the consequences if they fail. Xian Lu has been sent to take Surano, his mate, back to Mr. Osaki. He does not want to but he feels he has no choice in the matter. Blast, Surano and Xian Lu’s other mate prevents Xian from completing his mission an implores him to help them take down Mr. Osaki’s reign of terror for good.

With the help of Xian’s snake clan a plan is set in motion as Kobi heads back to Mr. Osaki with another gift. This was an amazing and terrifying story. I loved everything about the complex story. The characters, the plot and everything in between were riveting.

Fantastic read.

Blurb: Dover Rees is a guppy tailed merman and the youngest child of the King of the Southern Silver Isles. Despite the lofty title, he fits in better with the other guppy tailed working class than with his royal siblings. Dover spends his days secluded in his creek, successfully avoiding the King’s court and all the judgmental nobles there. Then, the most wonderous and horrible thing happens. He hears the mating call and knows his alpha is waiting for him.
Ben Elliot is just a human trying to get by in a small tourist beach town. He has his art and a few good friends, and that should be enough, right? Wrong. Coming home to a quiet house and an empty bed starts to wear on him, but none of the omegas he knows appeal to him. Until a storm knocks him off his fishing boat and he’s rescued by a mysterious, blue-haired omega.

Together, Dover and Ben forge a bond strong enough to stand against the storm of corrupt lords, court politics, and a cursed king.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Dover is unusual in his own family. He was born with a guppy tail where as his siblings were not. They were all princes and princesses but still most of them gave him hell for being different. Then there was the curse that one of the children would kill their king but there has to be away to stop it. He was suppose to marry an aristocrat set up by his parents, but he has the mating call.

Ben is a human living in the United States among many different types of paranormal. He knows a few stories but he has never been prepared for finding a very sexy blue tail. Many things are going their way but there is a secret evil heading their way, or maybe not so secret.

I have never been a fan of mermen shifter stories but this author has created several different types to throw into her story. I liked how the main ones are separated into three groups so that you know which ones are leading and which ones are not. It however does have a downside as well. There are so many different characters that it is a bit hard to figure out who is who. Also the name of the chicken seems to change which means more editing is needed. It however is full of humor in it that I find amazing. Love a tale that has a lot of humor in them to keep me laughing.

I liked Dover quite a bit more than everyone else. He has a childlike attitude and is amazed at so many things. They live in a world that has fancy cars but you would not know it from the way he is. Also there is Ben’s art, it is not worth making at first but then damn if he is not sought out to make more. His brother’s names are so close to gather that it is sometimes difficult to remember who is who which is not a good idea in my eyes. I had trouble figuring them out.

Overall the story rocked quite a bit with me. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next story. I can guarantee that this is one of those stories that will be read many times over.

Blurb: Best Surprise Ever: Going out to add to your Christmas hoard and finding your fated mate.

Laszlo
I’ve been longing to find my mate for over a thousand years. When I see him for the first time, he’s standing beneath sparkling glass ornaments, like a present waiting to be unwrapped. A present I intend to lay claim to.

If I can lure him back to my lair, I’ll shower him with so many gifts he’ll never want to leave. Bonded with my mate by Christmas? Yes, please.

Roman
I’m no good at flirting and have terrible luck with men, so when a gorgeous alpha says he wants to take me home, I’m shocked. And wary. My heat is about to start, and I’ve never shared it with anyone, so why do I suddenly want to say yes to this stranger?

There’s something unusual about him, the way his eyes shine, the odd phrases he keeps using. He says he wants to add me to his collection of beautiful things. I should be offended, but instead, I’m intrigued. Just this once, should I take a risk?

Review: The Christmas Dragon’s Mate is the first book in Silvia Violet’s Lonely Dragons Club series. I like the premise, which is a group of dragons who are about 1000 years old all long for their mates, living rather solitary lives except when they get together on occasion. With the coming Christmas season gives at least a couple of dragons hope for their HEA. This is a totally enjoyable read for anyone that likes shifters and m-preg but not looking for anything too heavy. This is just purely a romance without no angst.

I’m not super familiar with Violet’s work. However, a Christmas story, an alpha shifter and his omega human mate and throw in some M-preg… I was totally down for this. The only word of advice I will give is to those that don’t like insta-love (i.e. the whole fated mate thing in shifter romances) or pushy alpha getting their omega partner into bed.

This is a relatively quick holiday read. What you read in the blurb is essentially what you get, so I’m not going to get into too many details.

Dragons are well known for guarding their hoards. Laszlo is no exception to this rule. He loves the glittery and sparkle of Christmas, it is his favourite time of year. It is the one human festival that he loves. So he goes to a small gift shop in the town near his home, knowing he wanted to buy some glass baubles. This is how he meets his mate, a human omega called Roman. Laszlo has to fight his dragon, who wants to claim his mate as soon as possible, so that his mate won’t run screaming. He lures Roman to his lair and that’s when things heat up!

Vampires and werewolves are historical enemies. When the Peace Accord that imposes an uncomfortable armistice between the species is threatened, the entire supernatural community must respond.

Young vampire heir Sinclair Davis successfully petitions the council for permission to attend a werewolf dominated university. Surrounded by a pack of unwelcoming wolves, Sinclair’s first meeting with their alpha doesn’t go well. The handsome wolf hates him.

Alpha wolf Mitchel Edgehill is furious when the university sends a vampire to be housed among his pack, even if he is cute. But there’s nothing he can do since the paperwork has been signed. They’ll have to find a way to coexist.

As tension rises within supernatural society and violence escalates between vampires and werewolves, an uneasy truce develops between Sinclair and Mitchel. The pair attend a peace conference in hopes of preventing war, but when a rogue group of humans attacks, Sinclair is kidnapped and held for ransom. Can the alpha wolf work with vampires to save Sinclair, or will war break out after all?
