Dragon’s Hoard

(Dreamspun Beyond 05)
by

M.A. Church

To be loved by a dragon is to be treasured.

A hundred years ago, werewolf Alpha Montgomery took a risk driven by desperation—he borrowed money from the ancient dragon Warwick Ehecatl, putting up the pack lands as collateral. Now the debt is due, and dragons don’t forget— Or forgive. Warwick demands Montgomery’s son, Avery, and three businesses as compensation. As an Omega, Avery knows he is basically useless to his pack, so he might as well agree. He soon has second thoughts, though. Warwick is fearsome, and he’s free to do as he likes with Avery.

Warwick knows his race’s reputation, and he even admits some of it is deserved. But he’d rather cut off his tail than let his innocent mate’s light go out. It won’t be easy, but buried deep, there’s something between them worth safeguarding.

PROPHESY

The King & Alpha, #1
by

A.E. Via

An Enemies to Lovers
Shifter, Vampire True Mates story.

Justice Volkov is the youngest Alpha Zenith to ever lead the wolf shifters. Following in his father’s large paw prints was a responsibility he met head on. Now at age thirty-three, he is alpha of the alphas. As a direct descendant of the original Siberian pack, his wolf is bigger and stronger than Justice, himself is sometimes able to control.

“His wolf howled long and hard but Justice kept it inside. It felt like a bass drum beating against his rib cage. The harsh breaths, angry snarls and the determined pacing inside him was overtaking him. All the while… his mate kept calling.”

Justice takes his role of leadership and his legacy very seriously. He has little time for romance, not to mention a true mate. His packs are his priority. With a human government trying to regulate them, an uprising of rogue shifters, and a violent team of scientists trying to experiment on them, Justice has his hands way too full.

Chadwick ‘Wick’ Bentley is not enthusiastic when the captain of his escort tells him he has to leave his comfortable London home and go back to the States. As the Vampire King, he has no choice but to get his species back in line before they cause anymore chaos. At over two-hundred years old, Wick is no one to trifle with, but his smooth, charismatic manner makes him quite unique, despite the negative reputation vampires have. Wick has had nothing but time up to this point. He doesn’t feel the need to make issues pressing. Nothing is urgent in his life. Until he meets Justice. His beloved.

“Natural enemies can’t be mates.” Or so Justice thought. He knows his skepticism and rejection is hurting his mate, so while he fights their connection, Wick gets help from a source very close to Justice to help him win his beloved’s heart. Wick is a force all on his own, but when he’s blessed with a special gift from the Mother herself, not even Justice’s powerful wolf can prevent the prophesy from being fulfilled.

This story DOES NOT contain/mention MPREG.
No multiple pairings. It does not end on a cliffhanger and has an HEA.

Warning: This book is MM paranormal: If you DO NOT like hot, alpha men shifting into large wolves, or vampires feeding from their mates, this may not be your read.

Bad Boy’s Bard

(Fae Out of Water 03)
by

E.J. Russell

As far as rock star Gareth Kendrick, the last true bard in Faerie, is concerned, the only good Unseelie is . . . well . . . there’s no such thing. Two centuries ago, an Unseelie lord abducted Gareth’s human lover, Niall, and Gareth has neither forgotten nor forgiven.

Niall O’Tierney, half-human son of the Unseelie King, had never lost a wager until the day he swore to rid the Seelie court of its bard. That bet cost him everything: his freedom, his family—and his heart. When he’s suddenly face-to-face with Gareth at the ceremony to join the Seelie and Unseelie realms, Niall does the only thing inhumanly possible: he fakes amnesia. Not his finest hour, perhaps, but he never revealed his Unseelie heritage, and to tell the truth now would be to risk Gareth’s revulsion—far harder to bear than two hundred years of imprisonment.

Then a new threat to Gareth’s life arises, and he and Niall stage a mad escape into the Outer World, only to discover the fate of all fae resting on their shoulders. But before they can save the realm, they have to tackle something really tough: mending their own broken relationship.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Another fantastic installment of the spirit of sage series as Freddy, a dual shifter is featured front and center as he comes back after three years. He finds his mate in a lion shifter who ran from the circus along with others. Needless to say it’s more than the two in this story as Flashpoint makes an appearance and trouble comes knocking to Sage once again.

I simply love this series. It’s full of romance, suspense, mystery and action. Each story takes up where the last leaves off so it is best to read them in order.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Blurb: Detective Brady Lindstrom deals in death, and not just because he’s a homicide cop with the slaughter of a century to solve. Ten years ago, vampires murdered his lover. Ever since, he’s looked over his shoulder, ready for vampires to strike again.

Exhausted and angry about the needless deaths he has to investigate, Brady worries that the killers he’s looking for aren’t even human. Those fears are compounded by an unexpected visitor, the battered and nearly broken Cole Singer, the lover he’d long ago given up for dead. When Cole offers to trade information on the killers in exchange for sanctuary, Brady realizes he doesn’t have a choice. It’s not about justice. He simply can’t turn his back on the only man he’s ever loved. Even if he’s a vampire.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Brady’s dead lover, who was killed and turned into a vampire ten years prior, shows up on his door step. Despite his animosity he lets Cody in only to discover the case he is working on may come to a conclusion sooner than he thought as Cody has answers.

I understood Brady’s aggression to a point but after so long I found him to be a repetitive asshole to Cody. If he was so bothered by Cody why not send him packing?

The case itself was interesting. Especially when the suspects turn their sights on Brady and Cody.

Enjoyable read.

ISBN: 978-1-64010-611-6

Product Link: Siren-BookStrand

Reviewer: Lisa

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

I would say Silver surprised his family all the way around. He knew about the scrolls and what they meant. After something tragic happened before his eighteenth birthday, Silver made a vow that all who wore the mark would be protected. Silver is a very cranky alpha bear who is meaner then a snake. He will tear another apart if they cross him, well unless you’re a white cat. He believed in mates, so when he found his, well you can guess. The only problem was Mikey took off.

Mikey is a very twisted little guy. He runs or he kicks ass and wants to blow things up. He ran from the big bad bear, but the moment the bear catches up, well lets just say things heated up real fast. Too bad there are still some out there that want him and his cousins dead.

Action packed and funny as hell, this book ranks pretty high up on my books to read more then once list. I got a kick out of Mikey and his cat. I had a lot of fun reading this and can not wait till I get my hands on the next book. I must admit that the bears attitude leave me with mixed feelings, but Silver was a definite surprise. It did show me why he is an alpha though.

The moment Keaton walked into Cameron’s bar, he gained the shifter’s attention. Never before had the unbending, arrogant Kodiak felt this need.

Acting on instincts, Cameron took Keaton to his bed, ready to claim. That is, until he saw the mark of the jackal. Somehow, Keaton managed to survive meeting and mating Cameron. Now, surviving pregnancy hormones and living with a dominating Kodiak shifter are iffy on a good day.

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

I came across Bellann’s stories several months ago and knew after reading the first book, that she would rise up to be a favorite of mine. The worlds she create are unique and a fresh new idea to the paranormal worlds. I have read many shifter stories and have only come across so many that involves Kodiak’s. I actually had to laugh a bit, because of the way they act in the story are the way I would think they act in real life. Grouchy as hell, mean as a snake and mate for life are just a bit of what I imagine. However she gave it a new twist, one that involves a curse.

Keaton and his cousins fear for their lives. Each one has a crescent moon mark on their leg, and that puts them in danger from the Kodiak bear shifters. A curse, a wicked old woman and death follow the mark. However Keaton found something that points to the fact that the old stories were wrong, and the mark led to life for the Kodiak bear’s. To take a chance at dying, Keaton sets out to find the bear meant for him.

Cameron sets his eyes on a sexy man, a man who is his mate. Things get heated up, that is till he see’s the mark. You thought things were going to get rough, you haven’t seen anything yet. To make it even better, the male mates can get pregnant. Too bad Cameron’s alpha might have something to say about it all.

Now I have to admit that when Cameron see’s the mark, the way he reacted almost had me putting the book back down. I always wanted the shifter to be gentle to their mates even if they are pissed, and so seeing Cam’s reaction was a bit disturbing. However it does set with the fact that he is a bear shifter. They take possessive, dominating, asshat reactions to the level.

I enjoyed reading this story and have started on the second book. I can’t wait to see what book three will give us. I would definitely recommend this book.

Off The Beaten Path

by

Cari Z.

When Ward Johannsen’s little girl Ava shifted into a werewolf, she was taken into custody by the feds and shipped off to the nearest pack, all ties between father and daughter severed. Ward burned every bridge he had discovering her location, and then almost froze to death in the Colorado mountains tracking her new pack down. And that’s just the beginning of his struggle.

Henry Dormer is an alpha werewolf and an elite black ops soldier who failed his last mission. He returns home, hoping for some time to recuperate and help settle the pack’s newest member, a little pup named Ava who can’t shift back to her human form. Instead he meets Ward, who refuses to leave his daughter without a fight. The two men are as different as night and day, but their respect for each other strikes a spark of mutual interest that quickly grows into a flame. They might find something special together—love, passion, and even a family—if they can survive trigger-happy pack guardians, violent werewolf politics, and meddling government agencies that are just as likely to get their alpha soldiers killed as bring them home safely.

Orphaned at a young age, Zane never learned he comes from a long line of mystical Keepers. Kit needs Zane’s help to protect the Gate, but how can he tell Zane of his legacy when that will crush Zane’s dreams of traveling the world? If he takes up the mantle, Zane will be bound to the Gate, unable to leave it.

Reviewer: Lisa

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

It has been sometime since I had read the previous books in this series but it was like I never forgot them. I remember Manny and his mother. I remember when his mother had been killed and how hard it had been on the boy. He had been taken in and adopted by two wonderful men who adored him. Now he is almost twenty one years old, boy time sure does fly by. Walking home he is abducted by a green man, and everyone knows green men are dangerous as hell. However many surprises are in store for Manny, and only that green man can help him. To top it off the one man he had a crush on, just so happens to be the one man he needs the most.

Frankie has always liked Manny, even when he was just a kid. Which makes him freak out a bit, however Manny’s scent has changed and damn if he isn’t his mate. To top it off, Manny skin tone is changing, and that change just might mean a little twist.

I absolutely loved Manny and Frankie. They just seemed to rock it perfectly. Many would say that Manny is too immature and his father is too protective, but once you figure out their story you can see how it just pulled the story together. For one Manny is still very young and his fathers are his adopted fathers. So when something kind of shows up and your young man is growing, the empty nest feeling does start to happen. I actually felt for them all during that time.

It has a serious tone to it, but there is some humor that mixes just right for this story. It caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I got a kick out of it and can’t wait to start in on the next book.

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

Dusty is the youngest of his team mates and the one that seems to be having the hardest time.  He lost his hearing in the explosion that injured his teammates.  He even almost went feral and sent his commander in the same direction.  Thank god his teammates helped him come back, but the truth was he wasn’t handling it well.  Taking a job in the woods just helps him to connect and leads him to salvation.

Trace is an amazing artist who lost his way.  His ex-boyfriend was sent to prison after he assaulted him, but he was having troubles with it.  Depression and PTSD sets in and well you can guess where that heads.  Thanks to one sexy shifter who might just need him as much as he needs him.  Then the past comes for him and it is going to take Dusty and his team to save him.

Now this author has made a few mistakes that have been missed in editing, but it doesn’t take away from the story as bad as I would have expected.  However I still noticed it.

Other than my issues with this story it was a fun read.  I enjoyed it and can’t wait to start on the next book.

His jaguar tells him Eric is his mate, but Grover believes a broken shifter like him isn’t worthy of a mate.

Eric steals to survive and provide for his brother, his only family. Crossing paths with a blind but dangerous dominant jaguar shifter was never in the agenda, but he can’t ignore what his heart wants. His inner cat knows Grover is the one man he’d been waiting for his whole life, his mate. However, to belong to Grover and give their fragile relationship a chance to bloom, Eric must leave his old life of thievery behind.

When wounded hearts are on the line, Grover proves he’s willing to do whatever it takes to claim his mate.

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

Grover and his team mates did a good deed and it cost them.  For Grover it cost him his eyes and he was having a hard time dealing with it.  A powerful jaguar who is pretty much an alpha sees the loss as a weakness and as a vet, well you can guess.  However he would be wrong, because he still is a powerful man in his own.  So when a little thief tries to steal his wallet, well the thief stole his heart instead.

Eric and his brother Evan have been on their own for some time.  They had found themselves in a dangerous situation when another shifter takes them in.  Now they are thieves and only bad things happen when they fail.  The problem is his brother is sick and Eric has to work double to get it done.  Too bad he tried to steal from a powerful shifter who was blind, it might just cost him more than he expected.

When an author is trying to meet a deadline or just wants to get their books out fast, they tend to make a few mistakes that could cost them.  Such as different names, or different injuries to the wrong shifter, to spelling or even the tone.  Now this author has made a few of these mistakes, but it doesn’t take away from the story as bad as I would have expected.  However I still noticed it.

Other than my issues with this story it was a fun read.  I enjoyed it and can’t wait to start on the next book.

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

The first thing I noticed is the beta reader didn’t catch the name of the dead soldier.  In book one he was called Wayne but the author wrote it multiple times in this one as Larry.  So it needs just a bit of re-editing.  Not a big deal but it brought it down just a bit for me.  There were a few types of these issues with this book, but other than that sweet.

Mike is a powerful tiger shifter who lost his leg in the fight that also cost him his commander’s arm, another’s eyes, ones hearing and the loss of a friend.  Now in civilian life he was having just a bit of trouble figuring out life.  Then he comes across his mate.

Bowen has been on the run for some time.  He is a lynx shifter that can get pregnant.  To top it off he is an omega.  One man wants him, but it is only one man he wants.  Bowen needs his mate’s help to survive.

It is a very good book that caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end.
It does have a few issues, such as what I listed above, but it doesn’t really take away from the story itself.  It just felt rushed and for this type of story that isn’t really a good thing.  However I still had a lot of fun with it and can’t wait to see what book three will be like.

Dominant alpha shifters do not do well when they are no longer at the top of their game.  They see any weakness as a loss, but the shifters in this story find that it is not always truth.  Five soldiers go to war but only 4 come back alive.  Abram was the one in charge and came back with the loss of his arm.  To top it off he has flash backs and is trying to survive his new life as a civilian.  

Kane is the opposite of Abram.  He is definitely not a alpha type male, but he is bound and determined to get Abram to live in the now.  That is until one kiss, and sends him running.  Too bad now he has a very big lion coming after his mate.

I have not had the chance to read many stories from this author, but I have to say that this story does hit a chord.  It was well rounded and full of description that definitely catches my attention.  In fact my attention was caught from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.  I enjoyed reading it and can’t wait to get started on the next book.
