Kris Jacen

Calvin and Camden Luna — why yes, their dad is a big baseball fan— have moved around the world with their parents. Their father has been in the military since before they were born. Proud of their father and all he has done, neither of them is sure the military is for them. Haven’t they given up enough already? Cam is a fantastic baseball player and Cal loves the science of everything.

Tristan Nolan and Maddy Holt both grew up as military kids too, but neither of them moved around as much as the twins. Tris has always wanted to follow in the footsteps of those before him and make a career in the military; Maddy wants to save the planet and capture the heart of Calvin Luna… if he’d only open his eyes. Can Tris be himself — out and proud — and serve and protect his country? Can he end up with the one he’s loved for as long as he can remember?

What can happen when you grow up a military brat with the close ties from your fathers’ close friends and their families? Find the love of your life almost from the start? Or find out that maybe you’re all too close to have anything else.

Kris Jacen

Richard “Tank” Martin was a big boy from the start. Born weighing over 11 pounds, he didn’t stop growing. When he was in middle school, a football coach took him under his wing and finally explained to him the mystery of calories in, calories out and from then on it was all good for him. At least he thought. Being called to meet with his platoon sergeant and told that he was now part of the Army’s overweight program, sent him into a spin that only his crews can help him out of.

Dr. Jack Dillon thought his life was good and finally settled. Part of an active veterinarian practice, volunteering with a service dog organization, spoiling his sister’s triplets and training in sports jui-jitsu…the only this missing was a partner. He never thought that his world could be shattered with just a phone call even after being around his military friends.

Tank and Jack have been dancing around each other for months until Tank takes a chance and kisses Jack at their friends’ wedding moving their slow dance into a heated bump and grind. Can these two survive the changes coming their ways together or will all the changes break them apart?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Jace got out of a bad relationship with Dylan and went home to stay with his family. His mother was depressed and his little brother had some problems that had to be taken care of with special care. However Dylan follow’s him and things just take a twisted turn. When Dylan goes missing Jace is the one they suspect. That is except for one of the Detectives.

The story was fast paced but left me with more questions then answers. Will, the detective likes Jace and things heat up. Only problem the detective is kind of flaky, then at the end it just moves forward to fast. This story does have you trying to figure out the mystery of what happened to Dylan, but it wasn’t really that hard to figure out. I can tell you that this author put a lot of work in learning about domestic abuse, it showed in the story. That was a nice surprise.

I liked Jace quite a bit and the poor guy just didn’t get a good chance at all. However Will is a pompous jerk and couldn’t stand him. Although I do understand he was the detective and Jace was the suspect and what would happen if it came out, but really the guy still pushed it sometimes. I wasn’t as caught up in this story as I should have been and that was disappointing.

It is a very good story but for me it felt like the author rushed the last part of the story. It was a nice surprise from some of her other stories, but I am afraid that I just didn’t much care for parts of it.

The Signal Box

by

Lazlo Thorn

Autumn, 1913. Wiltshire, England. Davy Buckland, a boiler cleaner in the engine shed at the local railway station, was nineteen when he took a shine to the signalman at nearby Oakwood Junction. He didn’t know much about Nathaniel, but he recognised a man who could show him the ropes and how the isolated signal box in the Edwardian countryside where he worked, could provide the perfect hideaway for their clandestine games. By the time the Great War had started and these two ordinary men had become lovers, it wasn’t only the trains that were greased up and running on a good head of steam. But just how long could they keep this affair a secret? And what would the consequences be, if their unusual sexual liaison was ever discovered?

Reviewer:  Lisa

Review:  When I saw the title of this story, I knew that I had to read it.  Anything with bunnies will usually give you a laugh.  Then I found out that it was a m/m pregnancy type story and it was a definite got to buy.  This is the first book by this author that I have read and I will say that I am impressed.  I usually don’t read books by authors that I have not heard of or have not read yet.  I am a bit picky about my stories.

Although the fact that a rabbit shifter is called Peter is a bit overdone to me.  He is a funny little character who is definitely quirky as hell, he has had the hots for his best friend’s brother for quite some time, but he was also as shy as one can be.  To top it off rabbit shifters were just like rabbits in the wild, they mate and have many babies even if they are males.  But when werewolves show up, he knows Luke will protect him.  Things are about to get real interesting.

Now it is a funny story but a bit disappointing as well.  It mentions how male rabbits can get pregnant and mate for life, however there is no male rabbit getting pregnant in this book.  So I have to say I was not as pleased as I thought I would have.  Other than that it is a little bit dry and didn’t give me all that I wanted in a story.  However those are my issues with the book, other than that it was a real blast to read. 

I do hope that in the next book there are some baby rabbits floating around for Peter and Luke.  I did feel bad for Luke’s brother Benji and I want to know what the alpha of the Chicago werewolves is about but will gladly wait to see what happens in the next book.

Product Link: MLR Press | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Lisa

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

I started reading romance stories at the age of twelve and was always intrigued by the worlds that authors can come up with. Then a few years ago I read my first gay romance and I decided that there was just something about them that I liked more. For me a good paranormal love story with passion, fire, danger and trouble are a good hit. A.C. Katt gives me that type of story. They are fresh and very unique. The plots and story line are top rate and always keeps my attention from start to finish. 

There is just something about the worlds that she creates that keeps me captivated throughout the whole entire book. So much so that when a new book comes out, I must always start reading the very first book that leads up to this one. I love how there is a serious tone to it, but that it is equally matched with humor. I can’t stand a book that has no humor in it; I would rather be laughing then just sitting there. I also love how the mates are well loved and protected by their stronger mates. 

Julio was just fourteen when his life changed. His parents were killed and he was sent off to a group home for boys. The home was filled with angry teens who just loved to mess with the ones that came in. Julio was a prime target because not only was he gay but he was very fem. He took off to avoid being raped, only to end up with a man that was sadistic and cruel. Once he managed to escape, he had figured the only way he would survive was to be his own independent prostitute. Saving another led him to friends who got him out and led him onto the path that would give him the greatest rewards.

Etienne is an alpha who has found his mate. However someone from Julio’s past arises and almost cost him his life. Etienne needs to protect his mate, but it might also cause a war that could cost them everything.

To me there is nothing better than a good romance, but when it is a paranormal then it hits higher marks to me. I love them especially when there are some gorgeous men in some kinky situations. I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series that you can’t put down and have to read more than once. It is the perfect story for me and gave me all that I needed. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story.

I had a blast reading it and I can’t wait to read the next story.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  Each book in the Werewolves of Manhattan 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 story was meant to be a branch off from the Werewolves of Manhattan, but it is not to be.  Our very lovely Ms. Katt passed away after writing it, so it is to be the end of this amazing series.  

Frank’s stepfather is what one call’s a mob boss, and Frank didn’t want anything to do with him.  However he had to serve ten years for the man after college, but that time was almost up.  The problem was he couldn’t get a job with his last name.  That is until  Rene’s alpha offered him a position with them.  Too bad he hadn’t know that werewolves had existed till now, think of the shock on his face.

Rene is a strong beta for the alpha’s and would be the second to find his mate.  He just hadn’t known what to expect from Frank’s stepfather.  Things are about to get interesting for these two. I would give you a bit more, but you really should read this book.

As I said before this was meant to be a new start, but is a bittersweet ending to an amazing series.  It is entertaining and just about hot as can be.  Frank was a big surprise for me.  I expected tough, macho and rough around the edges.  However he is one of the sweetest guys I have seen.  He was a big hit with me and I would have loved to hear more.  

I loved reading it and can guarantee that it will be read more than once.  It is just one of those stories that will keep you entertained and falling in love.  I would definitely recommend it and the previous books.

Reviewer:  Lisa

Review:  Each book in the Werewolves of Manhattan 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 have come across a few stories in which it is imperative that one reads the previous stories in a series, otherwise it can be a bit confusing.  It has been some time since I have read a book in this series, so I had to do a little catching up.  It is a very entertaining story, but the omegas are the true characters in this story.  

Henri is the last of the alphas in their group to find his mate; he just had not expected him to show up at one of the other’s weddings.  Vitas is in need of care, and Henri will do everything to keep him safe.

Vitas had been held hostage by the alpha in Russia, along with his parents.  They had tried to protect him and get him to America, but it was all in vain.  Now they had been killed in front of him, and he was tortured every day.  He was an omega wolf, but his body thought he was now human.  Chernof’s own people decided to help him get out, but he had not expected to find his mate.  He wished for it and even dreamed about it, but never expected it.  His gift is a very strong one that anyone would want to use.  His mate must protect him at all cost.

This is a very entertaining story that will keep your attention from the moment you start reading.  There are a few little errors that I found but that is about all.  It just needed a better proof reader to find it.  I got a kick out of it, and will say that the alpha’s mates are a kicker.  I think they make the story just a bit more fun.  It has a serious tone to it, but there is quite a bit of humor that mixes just perfect for the story to rock.

I can’t wait to start reading the next story.  This is one series that I would definitely recommend.

Reviewer: Lisa

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

Flip’s past is coming to get him. He found something to show his uncle, only for his uncle to betray him. Should have known the man was no good, but he trusted his uncle not to do what he was going to do. He took the item and ran, hoping for some kind of luck to find him. What he found was a Dire Pack that took him in. To bad his lies were about to come back to bite him in the ass.

Corey was a beta wolf for his pack and one night of passion with Flip made him want for more. Then things heat up between them, the truth comes out. He doesn’t know which way to turn and his relationship with Flip might just not survive.

I came across Stephani Hecht when she wrote her first book in the series Lost Shifters. From that point on I knew that she would become a favorite of mine, and I was right. The worlds she created for the Dire wolves is amazing, terrifying, dangerous and exciting. The characters are fully developed and damn they are hot. With Flip I could see why he did what he did both times and why he didn’t want anyone to know. His heart is big and you can see his fear.

I enjoyed reading the story and cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. It is a fascinating series that will catch your attention and keep it there till the end. I had a lot of fun and would definitely recommend this book.

Slowly Eldridge realized the world he was meant to be in. A loving man and master at his side; he discovered submission was not a weakness but a true testament of his strong inner spirit.

I loved Dalton’s manner in which he guided Eldridge into BDSM. It was sweet the way these two came together and started a meaningful relationship.

Eldridge slowly came into his own as the story progressed.

Good story.

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 4 1/2 Hearts

Blurb: Betrayal, passion, adventure, primal sex, and a fight to the death. Mating a 26th century Oracan Bounty Hunter with a 18th century Earth pirate has its little glitches.

Bounty hunter Talos bows to pressure to bring his lifemate home for the completion of his strict warrior culture’s bonding ritual. Aidan, displaced 18th century Earth pirate — light- fingered, sly, charming, and understandably naive about the new world he’s been thrust into — can’t wait. Even if it turns out someone wants him dead. The 26th century looks different, but it turns out to be a lot like his old life!

Product Link: MLR Press

Reviewer: Shorty & Pixie

Shorty’s Review ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts: Travelling to Talos’ home was a trial. Not because of the journey but the completion of the bonding ritual. I found that the tests seemed designed with the Oracans in mind but was pleased that Aidan took it all in stride and did what he needed to do.

This adventure was not without it’s dangers. So many hidden dangers were throughout this story but one was left unexplained. I assume it will be explored in another story. The trials along with the people intent on harm for their own gain made for an intense and interesting read.

Great read and addition to the story.

Pixie’s Review ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts: Oh I have waited many many years for this beauty and I can honestly say that I was not disappointed in the least. 

Talos and Aidan have to travel to Talos’ homeworld Oracan so they can finish the bonding ritual, but before they even set off trouble heads their way. Aidan has to prove himself worthy of Talos and it’s a difficult journey especially as someone is gunning for Aidan.

This is a brilliant addition to the Details series, Aidan and Talos are both as lovable as before and their relationship has grown in leaps and bounds. Aidan is really put through the wringer as he takes part in the Oracan ritual that would approve him of becoming Talos’ mate, it’s a real challenge for a human taking part in an event that has only been designed for Oracan’s but the sly pirate has a couple of tricks up his sleeve. 

This is a great story that has yet again brought to life a cheeky character that you can’t help but love, Aidan is such a fantastic character that you would believe it would be hard to find a match for him but Talos with his no nonsense attitude is the perfect foil. There is plenty of action and a dash of danger, a brilliant storyline and a love that knows no bounds *sigh* I loved this story!

I’d recommend this to those who love great science fiction, a relationship pushing the boundaries, a  dash of danger, action galore and a wonderful ending.

Reviewer: Shorty & Pixie

Shorty’s Review ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts: I was blown away by this story. I can not imagine living in the seventeen hundreds only to be transported seven hundred years in the future to find all is changed. I don’t know how Aidan never aged once he was transported.

Talos takes a hunt to acquire and transport pirate Aidan Maymon. The buyer was a oily little creep named Barlow whose intentions were not on the up and up. Along the way Talos’ mating instincts take him for a drive. One he fights.

Aidan for his part is not happy and tries to escape every chance he gets but ultimately has to rely on Talos in this strange new world he finds himself in.

Great read.

Pixie’s Review ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts: Details of the Hunt was one of the first stories that I ever read in the MM genre and it blew me away with it’s fun light hearted tone while keeping a slightly serious aspect on the morality of the Hunts. I’ve read it many times over the years and it’s always fresh and always kept me entertained.

Talos is just doing his duty when he goes to pick up a blackhearted pirate from Earth 1769. He doesn’t expect the pirate to be completely different than what he expects and he certainly didn’t expect to be drawn to the man. The Hunt details must be fulfilled though and Talos must weigh his duty against the life of his mate.

Aidan is on the verge of death when he is snatched from the jaws of a shark by his very own Ceme sea god, but discovering everything that he’d ever known is long gone and he’s expected to just accept that he’s been brought from the past to be handed over to a sleazy git as punishment for his crimes several centuries before… Ha he wasn’t a pirate for nothing.

This is an amazing story that drags you into the future with fascinating aliens and a wonderful Johnny Depp type pirate. The story has you laughing and it also has you contemplating the morality of Aidan’s situation. There’s action and danger, love and loss, cheekiness and seriousness, and some amazing sex between two males who discover love when neither of them expected it.

I’d recommend this to those who adore science fiction, pirates and exotic aliens, to those who love a bit of action and danger, to those who adore fantastic characters and a storyline that has many twists and turns.

Do something new today.

Why he looks at his horoscope every day, Elias Hood doesn’t know. It’s all garbage, and no nickel fortune ever helped him climb all the way up the corporate ladder. He’s about to make Vice President. Rocking the boat with “something new” is the last thing on his mind.

But there’s this guy.

Ty Green can make friends with a tree and Elias can’t help falling for his easy-going vibe and his perfect smile. He’s a fellow Capricorn, like Elias, but that’s as far as their similarities go. Ty works to live—he doesn’t live to work. When Elias takes his horoscope’s advice and asks Ty out, both men are in for a shock. But as Elias’s walls start to come down, they might just realize that they have more in common than they think. In fact, they might even want the exact same thing.

Who knows? Maybe horoscopes aren’t just trash after all.

Sam wants nothing to do with his irresponsible, sarcastic neighbor…or does he?

Sam McAuley is having a rough start to the summer: Not only is he being sued, but the new guy running the animal rehabilitation center next door has no idea what he’s doing and his runaway chickens constantly end up in Sam’s pristine yard. 

Everything is temporary for Bo Novak. For as long as he can remember, it’s been one town to the next, one school to the next, one job to the next. Even his current job—running his sister’s animal rehab center while she’s away on a four-month leave—is temporary. And he does know what he’s doing, thank you very much. Sure, things don’t always run smoothly, but the stick-in-the-mud next door could be a little nicer about it. 

One overheard conversation, an olive branch, and a baseball game might show these guys that being at odds isn’t really what they want, and that what they want might just be each other.
