Blurb: Reverent Knight Drystan Kempe has no use for the rumors that have swirled around him for the past two centuries. There is no way he could be the former emperor of the dragons. All they share is a common name. After all, Emperor Drystan had a love that has become legendary since his death and the fallen knight Drystan is very much alone. As a man over six hundred years old, he’s waited impatiently for the other half of his soul. When he finally finds him, he is unamused to find him bearing the name of the former emperor’s mate.

Reverent Knight Conley Gylde is confident that whoever he was before his resurrection it has no bearing on this new beginning. When the pair finally become blood-bonded, they get a great deal more than they could have ever bargained for.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: The first 138 pages are about Coneley and Drystan’s meeting when they were younger, 17 and 19, and subsequent mating to the day they died. This part ends with the men as emperors and their death. I liked the details but felt it was drawn out too much as I kept thinking will we ever to get to the reason why the book is named what it is.

The next part begins after Latarian is killed, good riddance I say. I liked the look through Drystan and Conley lives. I felt that Drystan was too hard on Chand when his and Conley’s memories returned.

These two men were bigger than life before they were killed then resurrected. I found myself in awe of all they accomplished in their time period. I was devastated when their lives were taken by greedy Dukes.

I really like this series but still wish there were more action scenes in them.

Great read.

Blurb: A thousand years. That’s how long Chieftain Lorcan of the Acwellan has waited to have his vengeance. At last his mate has distanced himself from the sanctity of the magic stealing stones the Cwylld elves are notorious for and finally Lorcan can end his miserable life. It is no more than he deserves after abandoning Lorcan and igniting a war between their people which has left the demonic elven of the Acwellan tribe decimated. Surprised to find the man he once loved blinded and living in a sanctuary, Lorcan is undeterred. He has a score to settle and will allow nothing to get in his way. Not even his own heart..

ISBN: B072Y9ZR3N

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is an emotional drawn out story about Lorcan and Talfryn, Edion. Edion has no memory of who he is. He was kidnapped and spelled to change his appearance and his memories. Lorcan has spent a very long time thinking his mate left him. With nothing left to live for since the war decimated his kind he is set on vengeance.

I loved Edion’s story. My heart broke for the life that was stolen from him by evil people. I wanted to hold him and promise everything would be o.k. Going to live with D’Vaires was the best thing that happened to him as they cherished him and made sure he was safe.

Lorcan for his part was not at all nice to Edion when he meets him. He thinks Edion did the damage to himself and does not believe he has no memory. These two had an uphill battle. Once the spell was removed Talfryn had his hands full trying to convince Lorcan he did not leave him willingly.

Great story and I loved the fact the D’Vaires got four more members to their group. I really like the series.

Blurb: Sentinels are as dangerous as they are mysterious. Not satisfied with the rumors that abound, the two necromancers at the Dragon Court of D’Vaire make the courageous decision to summon their soul bound assassins only to discover the two are mates. Ripped from isolation, Gavrael and Gedeon were never taught about matebonds. They quickly realize their old lives have ill-prepared them to understand the complexity of their new connection. Before the pair can grapple with the concept of loving, an old foe returns intent on settling the score against Grand Warlock Dra’Kaedan and the D’Vaire family. Gavrael and Gedeon soon discover it takes more than their trusty daggers to finally lay the past to rest..

ISBN: B06XG1CDRP

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: A lot happens throughout this book. Blodwen finally gets up the courage with the help of her mate and family, to summon her sentinel Gavrael. Gavreal after being confined for ninety seven years in what I would call a prison since he can not leave his room. I honestly did not and still do not understand why the sentinels are confined away from anyone, even their own kind as it was never revealed as to why. It seems cruel and inhumane.

Gavrael does not know how to communicate as it evident from the moment he appears. I felt so bad for him. He’s sorely lacking in social skills. Blodwen’s mate decides to summon his sentinel as well who ends up being Gavrael’s mate. The majority of the story is Gedoen being mad at Gavrael and Gavrael struggling not to piss his mate off.

Latarian is back and devises a plan to get power but is thwarted and finally dealt with like she should have been at the beginning. The D’Vaires gain two new members as result. Idris a warlock and Edion a Cwylld elf who has suffered greatly.

Though I liked the story I felt Gavrael and Gedoen’s back and forth to be annoying as it seemed too drawn out to me, not to mention the way the sentinel’s are confined. I found the actual information about the sentinel’s to be severely lacking in this book but hope there’s more information to be uncovered in future books.

Great read.

Byron discovers that he isn’t the only one questioning America’s stance on magic. And he learns that Levi is stubborn, angry, and utterly enchanting. Time is running out, though.

Review: Diego, Beck and Denise are friends but Beck and Denise work for a secret agency. Unable to tell Diego puts a strain on their relationship but they both try to cope the best they can.

I enjoyed the paranormal aspect of this story though it seemed brief at times.

We are given an introduction into Diego’s childhood and glimpses throughout his life. Which was nice to know about him in more detail but I wanted to know about Beck as well.

All in all it was a nice read that was enjoyable if not a bit drawn out at times.

Great read.

by

M. Raiya

Betrayed and left for dead by his lover, North has retreated to a secluded island to nurture his coven of witches and their demon partners. His group uses the magic of starlight to bring as much peace to the world as they can. It’s enough. North has no desire to look for love again.

When an accident on a carpentry job reveals that he is a demon, Alan Holsen is sent to North for training. Alan possesses a rare healing ability—one he might be able to use to close the old wounds in North’s heart. While North teaches Alan magic, Alan teaches North to love again, and they both struggle with the leftover resonance of their haunted pasts.

Just when they dare to relax, North’s old enemy returns—and sets his sights on Alan. To save him, North must enlist the aid of neighboring covens, and he learns he isn’t as alone as he thought. But in the end, only North’s love for Alan and the power of the stars have any chance of saving them.

Review: This book is part of a series and must be read in order.

Candy is being buried with responsibility as he takes over the Hidden Gem, he micro manages and has little time for his friends and when he notices that Ivy is growing closer to Jack he gets jealous, but is he jealous of Jack or Ivy? Ivy has grown to love both Jack and Candy but can’t think of a way to get the two men together, with Jack’s lack of sexual interest and Candy’s near satyriasis needs Ivy doesn’t know if they would ever find a middle ground. Jack cares for both Ivy and Candy and is comfortable with Ivy’s sweetness and gentle caring but Candy’s aggressive needs scare the hell out of him. But when Candy is thrust into the middle of a murder investigation both Ivy and Jack pull together to protect the man they love.

We re-join the guys at Hidden Gem with a dazzling story that is so much more than the blurb hints at. We are able to catch up with the guys from the previous Hidden Gem books, Shane & Aki and Paris & Rain, and they are woven into the story beautifully, they enhance and give the story an extra development that takes Candy’s, Jack’s and Ivy’s story into a whole new realm.  

Candy, Ivy and Jack are just perfect characters, we’ve met them in previous Hidden Gem stories and they shine as their own story unfolds. Candy has hidden scars just like Jack and Ivy, and as we delve into the story we get a glimpse at each man’s hidden pain. We see the vulnerability of each man and we root for them to find their way to each other. But as amazing as their relationship is the storyline is astoundingly fantastic!

OMG! I LOVED THIS STORY! We are pulled into this story as Jack is called in to help investigate the brutal murders of companions, suspicion falls on Candy as a Dom and then holy cow there’s a huge massive twist and a whole new storyline opens up, it’s just fantastic! I’m not even gonna hint at what happens next only to say that Paris and Rain’s problems in Cardinal Sin have just got a whole lot more complicated.

Yep that’s it guys, this is a story that I will recommend wholeheartedly to fantasy lovers everywhere, it’s a true work of art and Lissa Kasey has shown that she is a master of understated smack you in the face twists. She wrote this story in such a way that while I was anticipating a troubling time as Candy and his friends proved his innocence that I couldn’t, not in a million years, even imagine what was coming next. Because she was secretly plotting to shock the hell out of us with a twist so amazing that I was gobsmacked and devastated and eager for more.

I recommend Candy Land to those who love mismatched men finding love, paranormal and fantasy stories that still manage to amaze, a storyline that grips you by the throat and refuses to let go and an ending so good that you hope there will still be more to come.

Things get even harder for James when he becomes what he and everyone else despises most—a magic user.

He didn’t mean to evolve into such a despicable person, and he knows using magic is illegal, but there’s nothing James can do about it, no more than he can stop himself from loving Gabe. Just when things can’t seem to get worse, he and Gabe are called to help nab a network of magicians who are changing destiny. Not just any destiny, but the destinies of the van Helsing and Marquez families. James foresees a terrible fate, one in which monsters emerge from the cracks, along with his dark secret.

Blurb: In the kingdom of Jahar, the rule of mages has been overthrown. Prince Dezra Luzan is being held prisoner in the ancestral palace. In order to stay alive, he pretends to be a drug-addicted wastrel, trusting no one, not even his lovers. Into his lonely existence comes a man who should be his sworn enemy; Captain Rayn Nevar. Dezra is irresistibly drawn to the rough soldier and his longing for a simple sexual encounter quickly builds into a dangerous obsession.

Captain Rayn Nevar knows he should stay away from Prince Dezra, but his desire for the beautiful young man overrides all common sense. Rayn soon finds himself protecting the prince from a plot to destroy the last of the mages. When treachery leads to Dezra’s escape, he is at last free to unlock his long repressed powers. Only the arrival of a mysterious monk with powers greater than Dezra’s stops the prince from using sorcery to destroy all who stand in his way, including Rayn.

As Jahar edges toward another war between masters and mages, Rayn must question his devotion to his increasingly deadly lover while Dezra must decide if ultimate power is worth the ultimate sacrifice.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is book three in the Masters and Mages series.

Prince Dezra is a prisoner. Captain Nevar doesn’t trust Dezra but at the same time he is attracted to the handsome prince. Forces are at work to sway Dezra to Ka’alar’s side. Can Nevar’s feelings for Dezra save him from the nightmare to come?

This was a wonderfully written and intriguing story of a man who has bided his time until he can find a way out. I totally understood his need for freedom but at the same time was concerned with the path he was going down to achieve it.

The group of men who worship Ka’alar seemed to only care about what they could get Dezra to do instead of about him as a person. M’lan tries to help Dezra but suspicion and lies cloud Dezra’s judgment of the man.

It was a great story that delves deeper into the series with twists and turns throughout.

Lauren Sattersby

I’m Tyler Lindsey, and until recently, I had an okay apartment, an okay girlfriend, and an okay job as a bellboy at a respectable Boston hotel. Then rock star Chris Raiden died right before I brought his room service—stiffing me on the tip, by the way—and my life went to hell. My fifteen minutes of fame was more like five seconds, and my girlfriend left me in disgust.

But even worse—Chris is haunting me. Not the room where he died, like a normal ghost. No, somehow he’s stuck to me and is insisting on taking care of a bunch of unfinished business in California. So now I have to traipse across the country with the world’s most narcissistic ghost.

But . . . I keep having these weird thoughts. Thoughts about how much I like the way he makes me laugh. Thoughts where I kind of want to kiss the emo-narcissist, even though he’s a ghost and an asshole and I can’t touch him anyway. And even if I could, what will happen when he finishes his business and nothing’s keeping him here anymore?

Review: Sabine and Bart have had a shaky past. Though they have been lovers for 10 years the past few months. Both men have done things that have made their friends upset with them.

I never really felt one way or the other towards Sabine but I did love Bart. This book redeems Sabine quite a bit an in such a short book there is a lot of action and plot and the story begins really to take shape. Plus there is a bit of humor thrown in when Laurant gives him a demon name to practice with.

If you like fast paced action, ghosts, demons and a little chuckle you will love this.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: I’m finding it difficult to conjure the words to describe this one. I’m torn in two. I loved the book – hell, I cried on public transport because of this book. Yet, at the same time, there are elements of this book which I found just a tad annoying. The premise of the book is great and how it turns out is certainly different to similar books I’ve read.

First off, though, I am going to put it out there: if you are looking for pure romance this is probably not your book. I think that is why part of why I was a bit disappointed. The blurb was vague (it’s one sentence!) and so where I expected more romance I got hints of connections instead. More to the point, this story is about 3 men connected by dreams, past lives and curses. Most of the story, though, is told from just the one character’s POV.

Regardless, let’s move on to the good stuff.

Steeped in Catholic tradition and set amongst the devoted Irish-Catholics of Boston, there are a lot of elements that have been brought together for this book. It is almost in two parts. The first part is of MCs Brian and Andy growing up. Brian is the character who tells the story for the majority of the book. Interesting but I have to admit that on occasion it did get tedious, especially when it came to the shared dreams.

Yes, each time the dreams were retold there was always a new subtle point added, but to be perfectly honest I don’t have the attention span to reread over something that is basically the same. The problem for me being that the stories lies within these subtle differences.

The second part of the story is Brian and Andy as adults and essentially this is where the story kicks into high gear. Up until this point it was a lot of telling and picking up all the little pieces. Now things are finally coming together. This is where Dr Mark Conno also enters the story.

I won’t go too much into the plot because I enjoyed all the little intricate points that made up the story. Although I have to admit I had it worked out, Brian is just so slow at putting the pieces together. There was an interesting twist for Andy’s character and the appearance of Mark half way through had me confused as to who Brian’s love interest was.

The story is called A Bell for Andy and it really isn’t until the last pages that you finally find out why the book is called what it is. There is a lot of Catholic dogma woven throughout the story. When the romance does come into the story, I’m not entirely sure how to take it.

The primary part of this story is the mystery surrounding shared dreams and coincidences that have brought the characters together at one point in another in their lives. So then when there is romance I felt a bit of spark but for the most part I was diverting me off the track of the mystery.

All in all, though this book has left me with mixed feelings, it is a great book. It is different to many books with a similar premise. I can’t really say it was fun because there was always the mystery, eating at my mind as I was trying to read it to finally find out what the hell was going on.

So I end on the note that this is a thoroughly enjoyable read. If you like a bit of mystery, a good old ghost story and reincarnation this is the book for you.

Now the same friends who helped Ben with the rescue are making a strong case that something about Artie isn’t right. When Artie verbally attacks his best friend, Ben is forced to acknowledge the unbreakable barriers surrounding Artie’s mind.

Searching for someone with the right gifts to help, Ben encounters a woman who insists there’s only one way—and one person—who stands a chance at saving Artie. What Ben finds when he goes on his solo rescue mission may very well mean both of their deaths, as they confront the evil that has made Artie’s mind the Devil’s playground.

Reviewer: Cat

Review  You definitely need to read the series in order and I suggest the entire collection or you may feel a bit lost about some of these characters.

This story picks up where the last left off with Ben looking for Artie. Artie is a physic with special powers and though he is home he seems lost and withdrawn. Ben is determined to do whatever it takes to brig Artie back and keep him safe.

This story is so good that you can’t put it down and want more when you are done. There is so much action it keeps you flipping the page and sitting on pins and needles! I have no nails left!

Ben and Arties characters just get more and more complex as we go and their love is to die for!

If you like action packed series, collaborations, complex characters, vampires, demons, shifters, ghost dogs, you name it if its supernatural or paranormal it’s probably here! Plus it’s an awesome romance!

Quinn and Valerian have come through the trials of facing an undead lich queen and the perils of falling in love. Now they work to restore AURA to its previous strength and efficiency while navigating their new life with each other. Fortunately, they’re not in this alone.

Kai Hiltas has taken over as the head of the research department at AURA and has become everyone’s favorite workaholic, everyone except his lover Tenzin, who has had enough of his late nights and broken promises. As Kai tries to salvage his relationship, he finds a teacher for Quinn, who also happens to be one of Valerian’s new officers, Flax Wolfheart, a sexy elf with trouble written all over him.

Flax has motives beyond simply teaching Quinn to control his magic. He’s trying to recover from his own losses and failures, but he has a plan. The two newest elvish crossovers, Ash and Sage, are sizzling hot and might even like him. With them as backup as he tracks a deadly stone mage and figures out how to teach Quinn, Flax sees his chance to impress Val and snag a place by his captain’s side.

On the hunt for both danger and redemption, Flax’s pursuit leads him ultimately down trails he never expected.

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: This book is part of a series and should be read in order.

This book picks up a little after the last. Since then Valerian has taken on the Captaincy spot that was left open after the prior events. Quinn has started working on a freelance basis for the AURA research department. Valerian and Quinn are now living full-time together as the bonded pair they are. The fire between them has not cooled down and they are still sex as hell together.

But this story is not only about Valerian and Quinn. There is also the Kai and his Tenzin having issues with their bonding. As an extra bonus there is the story of Flax, an elf hunter for AURA who finds his matches in two elf newcomers to Earth. Throughout all the relationships is the ongoing issue of someone with the power to turn people into stone. To say the least, a hell of a lot goes on.

There are the interconnecting relationships, not just the romantic but also the friendships that have developed. Even as they hunt for the person turning people into stone, the emotional bonds of the three romantic relationships are highlighted and explored.
Kai and Tenzin experience bumps in their bonding.

As Kai works himself to the bone, he has put a strain on his relationship. Instead of putting Tenzin first, he has focused on work. And Tenzin takes drastic measures. Now Kai has to learn a different way of balancing his work and personal life.

Meanwhile, Flax has issues of his own. When he first landed in the human world he did not handle it well. Alone he turned to drugs and nearly lost himself. Now working as an officer for AURA he hunts those bent on causing problems. When he is blackmailed into training Quinn, he does with the wrong ideas that nearly backfire on him.

It isn’t until Ash and Sage come through an event that he learns there may be something else out there for him. And let me tell you these three are smoking hot together.

The descriptions and dialogue are rich and lushly descriptive. Even with so much going on with the different relationship that are already established and the new one taking place I did not find myself getting lost. Everything was easy to follow.

I loved the first book and I loved this one too. The concept is different, interesting, and it’s not one-dimensional. Because of that I have been drawn into this world the authors have created. I enjoy the different characters and their unique traits.

This series is turning out to be an awesome urban fantasy and I cannot wait to see what happens next.

Blurb: Does everyone have a certain “type” they end up with… whether they want to or not? If Ray Carlucci’s ex is anything to go by, Ray likes his men gorgeous, rebellious, and chock-full of issues. But now that Ray is single again, he has a shot at a fresh start—a very fresh start, since his tattoo shop was gutted by repo men and he can fit all his belongings in the trunk of a taxi.

Ray’s shiny new chauffeur’s license lands him a job as a driver for an elderly couple on Red Wing Island. It’s a cold fall, and since the Michigan island is the summer home to snowbirds who fly south for the winter, it’s practically deserted—save for Ray’s new household and a sculptor named Anton Kopec, who works day and night twisting brambles and twine into the distorted shapes of macabre creatures. Compelling, bizarre, and somewhat disturbing…not just the sculptures, but the artist, too. Ray has a feeling Anton is just his “type”.

Despite their scorching chemistry, when a dead body is unearthed by some workers and a freak ice storm traps them all on the island, Ray can’t say for certain that his new flame isn’t capable of murder.

Note: This novella originally appeared in the anthology Partners in Crime 4: The Art of Dying

Reviewer: GiGi

Review: A weird, fascinating mystery that tries desperately to point you in the direction of the suspect, from the title of the story to the descriptions of Anton’s artwork. I, however, always route for the artiste. It takes one to know one sometimes, and I know artist find beauty in the oddities of life, sometimes the gruesome aspects of life, and let’s face the numbers…77% of artists/musicians/writers suffer from bipolar or manic depression.

So just because Anton has a voracious sexual appetite, when he has company, runs out into the woods in the night to perform odd rituals, likes to play with dead things and decorate graves, and is sometimes off his rocker, doesn’t mean he’s the bad guy…..right?

I like this question, because given Ray’s past, and his taste in men, he has to seriously reflect on it. Is he drawn to the rotten apples? Or is Anton being painted with a broad and blackened brush?

From the beginning my list of possible baddies is as long as my arm. I wanted to believe anyone was suspect, except for Anton….I still held out hope for him. Was my hope in vain? You’ll have to read and thoroughly enjoy, as I did, this delectable tale of oddball artists, new beginnings, and running from the past.

And yes, there is some fast and furious, hot and heavy lovin’ but it only added to the pace and mood of the story.
