(Criminal Delights: Assassins 14)
Being an assassin wasn’t something Lexington Campbell ever envisioned for himself, but after spending eight years doing just that, he’s prepared to take his place at the table of his father’s motorcycle club, The Iron Heretics.
Arden spends his nights dancing on stage at Spritz, one of St. Louis’s hottest night clubs, and waiting for Lex to pass back through town. After being orphaned young, he fears letting himself get too attached to the distant, bearded Lex, even after three years of inviting the man into his bed.
When Lex finds himself with a price on his head, he unknowingly pulls Arden into the darkness with him. When things aren’t what they seem, and enemies abound, will they find themselves still standing together in the cold light of day?
Warnings: attempted sexual assault, blood, graphic violence, morally dubious characters
Blurb:Davis~ It was just another job—at least it was supposed to be—but snaring the feisty blue dragon I’d been contracted to collect and her rider in my trap changed everything. Hunting dragons was my job, and I was damn good at it. I’d never missed a target. Never failed to make a delivery. So why was every step toward turning over my bounty suddenly a struggle? No quarry had ever managed to get under my skin, but something in Zale’s haunting blue eyes called to me like nothing ever had before.
Zale~ When Itsaso and I were kidnapped, we fought like hell but found ourselves at the dragon hunter’s mercy. He locked my dragon away, leaving me to face captivity alone. Now, all I have to rely on is the training that’s been drilled into me every day for as long as I can remember and biding my time, waiting for Davis to make a mistake. Or my brothers to find and rescue us. But something happened the first time I truly looked in Davis’s eyes, dark pools as deep and enchanting as the sea, and I realized I was in so much more danger than I thought. How could a ruthless dragon hunter be my perfect mate?
Zale is the second book in The Brotherhood of Ormarr series. While each book focuses on a different couple, the overall story arc continues in the next installment. For maximum enjoyment, we suggest reading in order. Zale is a m/m romance, and is recommended for adults 18 years and older.
Review: Davis is from a clan outside the Brotherhood of Ormarr, a clan who is determined to stop the wraiths and the people who lead them. Ordered to capture a man and his dragon caught on film leading a wraith attack Davis accepts the mission with glee, but the man he kidnaps is tempting in a way that Davis can’t resist no matter how hard he tries.
Zale is enjoying some peace with his dragon Saso when he’s captured and Saso bound to his arm, all Zale can think about is that the Order has captured him. But as time passes he finally discovers why he’s been caught… and it leaves him astounded. His captor may be his mate but Zale won’t let that stop him from escape.
This is an excellent addition to The Brotherhood of Ormarr series. We rejoin the Ormarr brothers with Zale’s story and boy is it a doozy. Zale is kinda lonely, wishing he has what his older brother Azaran has but what he gets is kidnapped and told that he has to answer for his crimes. Davis longs for something long lost and when he’s tasked to bring in a dragon rider who has betrayed his own kind Davis is determined to make him pay.
Now as you know the bond between mates is strong but both Zale and Davis fight it as they view each other as the enemy, but it does help them to listen to each other and get to the bottom of the problem.
This is an excellent story that progresses far quicker that the first book Azaran, in Azaran we were given the background and history and now in Zale the overall ARC of the storyline is more fleshed out, progressing very quickly to the next step but not giving away any secrets, so there’s still much to look forward to in the series concerning the overall ARC.
Zale’s story has him finding his mate but gives him challenges to overcome, Davis isn’t just a filler character either he has his own devastating background but he also has a shocking discovery which leads to an astounding scene that greatly pleases. Now as a couple they are fantastic, they overcome their rocky beginning are hot together but don’t rush things between them. It’s a nicely paced relationship (well for fated mates anyway LOL)
Michelle Frost has written an interesting and exciting story that flows beautifully and keeps you turning the pages. It has excitement and a dash of danger, with a great storyline that expands on the series ARC whetting your appetite for more. An excellent read for anyone who loves paranormal romance.

(The Brotherhood of Ormarr 02)
Davis – It was just another job—at least it was supposed to be—but snaring the feisty blue dragon I’d been contracted to collect and her rider in my trap changed everything. Hunting dragons was my job, and I was damn good at it. I’d never missed a target. Never failed to make a delivery. So why was every step toward turning over my bounty suddenly a struggle? No quarry had ever managed to get under my skin, but something in Zale’s haunting blue eyes called to me like nothing ever had before.
Zale – When Itsaso and I were kidnapped, we fought like hell but found ourselves at the dragon hunter’s mercy. He locked my dragon away, leaving me to face captivity alone.

Blurb: Something is moving in the shadows of Hanover Hills.
Being the lead enforcer of a werewolf pack isn’t the easiest job in the world, but Deckard Warren doesn’t trust anyone else to do it. Most days he doesn’t trust anyone, period. He leads his unit of Ironheld Wolves–defending their territory and protecting their alpha–with vigilance and a wrath as unforgiving as he is. When a man who doesn’t know his own name is chased into wolf territory by a rival pack, Deckard discovers something he thought didn’t exist for him and that he knows he doesn’t deserve.
Colt is running, but from what? And to where? He doesn’t remember anything before the moment he crossed the border into Ironheld Wolf territory with only the clothes on his back. After he leaps straight into the arms of the gruffest, most intimidating man he thinks he’s ever met, the werewolf seems hell bent on helping Colt get his memories back if only so he can send him on his way. With no other options, Colt takes Deckard up on his offer of refuge and sets out to figure out what happened to him even as proximity to the werewolf threatens to have him losing more than the recollection of his past.
But when the shadows shift and enemies are brought to light, will Deckard and Colt find a way to stand together or watch as everything around them drowns in darkness?
Review: I really wanted to love this story of Deckard and Colt and who Colt turns out to be. But alas I was disappointed in the fact that it moved slowly for a good majority of the book as Colt and Deckard got used to each other. Colt has no idea who he is and so Deckard is gentle and understanding with him.
Colt is scared that he has no memory of who he is. The one constant in his life now is Deckard. A struggle for power in the pack comes to light and Deckard volunteers to be the alpha’s step in. When Deckard takes Colt to his alpha’s mom who is a witch, things start going fast and abrupt. The truth of who and what Colt is comes out and it’s a mind blower.
I wanted more in the way of the action scenes not a few sentences then bam it’s over. Not to mention the ending left a lot to be desired as it’s a cliffhanger. This book was not a balanced book.
