Blurb: Portland Pack Chronicles: Book Two

In the four months since hedgehog shifter Avery Babineaux started investigating the disappearance of a young female werewolf from the Portland Pack, he’s discovered his life’s passion. Now he’s apprenticing under established PI Corbin Reid. Avery hopes his training with Reid will help him finally bring Lacey home, but detective work isn’t without its perils, and the potential dangers strain his relationship with his new mate, Dylan.

Dylan Green would be perfectly content with his mating and his motorcycle shop if it wasn’t for his constant worry about Avery’s safety and the fact that Avery’s never home. Proud as he might be of Avery’s determination to prove his worth and fulfill his promise to Lacey’s father, Dylan can’t stand the thought of Avery being hurt. Yet what right does he have to demand Avery give up his job when it’s clear Avery’s found his true purpose? Still, Dylan wishes he could, and the appearance of a new police detective who sets his sights on Avery only adds to the tension.

Something has to give, but stubbornness runs in both their veins, and it might take a catastrophe for them to find a compromise they can live with.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Prickly By Nature is the second book in the Portland Chronicles series. I feel that it would be very difficult to understand the overarching plotlines without having read or heard book 1 before hand. It is an enjoyable addition to the series.

We pick up the story of prickly hedgehog shifter, Avery Babineaux, and his wolf shifter mate Dylan Green. Avery is as prickly as his creature. He’s a good old southern boy from an obscenely rich family who believe that if there’s anything worse than Avery being gay, it’s that he’s mated to a wolf shifter. Avery and Dylan have overcome their problems to enjoy a proper mating. But Avery is taking on more than he really should in his new career as a private investigator and Dylan both worries and feels neglected by his mate. Throw in a mystery carried over from the previous book involving human trafficking and a new set of mates and everything in the story is ready to go.

However, it pains me to say I did not enjoy the story as much as I had been hoping, or rather expecting to. I enjoyed the plot in general and I loved the voice that Iggy Toma gave to the story. For me the narration was actually the saving grace that kept me going. My issue was the overall flow of the story was a tad too slow for my liking. In fact, I think the best way to put it that there was a lot of “telling” and “listing” in the story. Even the sex scenes seemed a little long and purely explanatory.

I think for me this is a book I would rather read the written word instead of hearing. I would definitely find more enjoyment out of that. This is a good paranormal romance from an equally enjoyable series – it’s just not the best installment in my opinion.

James Howard is twice Andrew’s age, and he’s not used to selfless youngsters. Despite a rocky first meeting, the two develop an unlikely friendship as James introduces Andrew to the city. James is looking forward to the festivities leading up to Christmas in London and maybe a celebration with Andrew. But will a nasty bout of the flu ruin their romantic holiday?

Not if Andrew has anything to say about it.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: This is a lovely, sweet story by TJ Masters which rests on the simple premise of a misplaced diary in a busy airport. I can’t recall reading anything by the author before, so like I do with any new author I like to go in with an open mind and no expectations.

The story itself was enjoyable and fun but there was something missing which didn’t reach out and grab me while I was reading. The story follows Andrew Chin, he’s moved to London from Singapore to complete his Masters degree. Barely stepping foot in the airport, Andrew finds a lost diary and when he returns the diary he meets the owner, older businessman James Howard.

A thoroughly enjoyable read, I think the only barrier to your enjoyment is two things 1) no real drama or event to develop the plot or the characters, and 2) you need to be on board with reading a love story between a 20-something and a 40-something.

Blurb: Centuries ago the Phoenix and Dragons were a force no one could penetrate. They fought together, mated together, and worked side by side, and then all that changed. The children of the leaders were dead and war had practically destroyed them all. The fighting stopped and they both went their separate ways. 

Daytona was the Captain of the Crystal fire department. He loved his small town and he loved his job. However, what none of the small town knew was that he was also a dragon. Crystal was a small location just outside Denver, and it was also the home to the Phoenix. He had lived amongst them for years, hiding his scent, until the day came that he could no longer keep his secret. 

When a fire claims his mother’s life, Ethan rushes home. Having your mother being a victim of an arson is not something he was prepared to face, but discovering he wouldn’t have to do it alone, should have been a relief. The thing is…that relief came in the form of a dragon, and the town believes that his mate is the cause of all the fires around town. 

When the arsonist strikes close to home, Day knows he must clear his name and find the culprit that is now trying to kill his mate.

Reviewer: Lisa 

Review:  I have read a few stories by each of these authors and have loved their stories, however combined they are amazing.  I loved this even more because you very rarely find these two different paranormal creatures mixed into a story.  It is either dragon shifters or you will find the phoenix shifter, but never together.  So it was a unique story for me.  It was fully developed and the details made it feel like I was right there with them.

At one time dragons and phoenix shifters worked together, mated and loved one another.  That is until a big betrayal destroyed it all. A war started and many died, but soon each shifter moved on.  They went their separate ways, well until a certain dragon wanted to get away from his clutch and start his own life.  His father was the leader of his clutch in Denver, but Daytona just wanted to make his own way.  So he lived among the phoenix shifters without anyone knowing.  That is until a fire that he had to make a choice.

Ethan was a beautiful phoenix shifter however he had been away from home for some time.  When he comes back to find his mother gone, he realizes that he has also found the one for him.  To his shock it would seem that a dragon and a phoenix might just find love once more together. Too bad someone is either trying to kill Daytona or frame him for the fires.

I loved how this story was so full of excitement, suspense, emotion and twists.  Usually when I come across a new series, I am a bit let down because the first book doesn’t hit the high note with me.  However this was the exact opposite and I had so much fun reading it.  I could not put this book down and can’t wait to start on book two.  This has hit my favorite list right off the bat.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  Each book in The Angel 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.  

It has been sometime since I have read this series, and I realize just how much I missed them.  The characters are a blast to read about and so much damn fun.  There is always action, suspense, danger and some hot situations that these guys get into.  Not to mention hot sex, but I will leave that up to your imagination.  These stories always catch my attention and it never waivers until the very end.  It just seems to flow at the right pace for me.

Sage started getting his powers at the age of five years old.  He just had no clue what was going on.  Then he shifted into a wolf, and that just freaked him out more.  So when the tri symbol showed up on his arm, he researched it and ran from his grandmother for fear of hurting her.  He didn’t know the true meaning though, just what he read.  He ran until he came across a man so evil that it would take all he had to escape. For two years he was doing it and working the Angel Pack.  Now they have figured out what he was and he runs.

Slade is a vampire that can walk in the sun, but that is not all he is.  He comes to see what the problem is, and finds his little mate.  Those who are evil are hunting him down, and Slade must get to him to protect him.  The whole pack is on the move, for when Sage turns twenty-one the powers that be will strengthen.  Now for more, you are just going to have to read the book.

This is one of the best series that I have come across in a long time.  It is so action packed that I was on the edge of my seat throughout it all.  I have to admit though that the amount of characters that are in this, that at some points it does get confusing with who they are.  However it doesn’t’ take away from the story at all.  I can’t wait to get started reading the next book.  What a story it is!

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: A man on a mission, Jacob sets out to Italy to discover what happened to his mother and Caleb. Unbeknownst to him an ancient evil is about to invade Ben’s lover Sam and cut down all in its path in brutal fashion. While I love horror stories this one was confusing at times. 

There some confusion on my part at times to where exactly the location was referring to as it changed suddenly with no warning. As with all horror books there is a lot of death in brutal fashions throughout. 

There were also a lot of POV’s throughout the story. Some I felt were unnecessary to have. Sam was super scary at times in his possession but he also confused me before he was possessed. Ben was sweet and seemed to care for Sam a lot. 

I really liked the plot of this story but the delivery was a little wrong to me so it made it impossible for me to enjoy it as much as I should have. It was an ok read.

Blurb: They thought finding each other would heal them both, but life in Saint Lakes doesn’t make it that simple.

Sage Rickman was in the wrong place at the wrong time. At least that’s what he think when the vampires kidnap him. Working through the mental anguish of all the vampires did to him is difficult to get through to say the very least. Peace of mind is an elusive creature though. He thought finding his mate would make things better, but trust doesn’t come easy.

Garridan Arach can’t remember anything about his past. He’s been in his dragon form far too long for a normal shifter to take. Being feral is the least of his worries though, especially when his memory starts coming back. Not that he cares about his past. All he wants is his mate. A mate that keeps rejecting him every time they’re together. His past has a way of catching up with him, and he discovers things that will make life in Saint Lakes less than peaceful.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  Each book in the Saint Lakes collection features a different 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 the Wingspan series but I would suggest reading this series first.

My mother got me started reading romance stories at a pretty young age and it just seem to click with me from the first one.  It wasn’t until about two years after I started reading that I realized I actually liked the paranormal ones the best.  Then close to four years ago I accidentally downloaded two m/m romance stories.  Let’s just say once I got over the shock, I started reading more and more of them.  So much so that I cannot read any books with girly parts in them.  My mother got a kick out of that at least.

When April wrote her very first book and I got my hands on it, I knew that she was going to be a big hit with me and I was right.  Her characters are unique and very fresh to me.  Also her worlds just seem to hit with my desires.  I knew from that point on that she was going to be an automatic buy from that point on.  I have not been let down yet.

There is something about the way that she writes, that not only draw you in but keeps you there.  They are not only the perfect length for me, but they are so full of detail that it feels like you are right there with them. They not only entertain you but captivate you throughout the whole story. For me once I start reading I can’t move until I find out how they end. Her characters are also very fascinating and unique to me.  The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down.  

You don’t come across many books where the characters are dragons so imagine my delight when I found out that they were in April’s stories.  Garridan is a powerful dragon shifter who had just lost his best friend.  His friend and his wife left behind a beautiful young boy who was afraid to let him out of his sight, but Garridan knew he had to find out who was behind the killings and end them.  Too bad for him, he hadn’t counted on being caught and kept for many years.  That is until he is found and rescued over forty years later, nor to find his mate.

The ones that had Garridan had also kidnapped his mate, Sage.  The things done to Sage is horrific and evil, but between the two of them well you will just have to read the book to find out more.  

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.

Wallachian nobleman Radu is recently arrived in Bucharest with his vampire parents. Welcomed as an eligible bachelor, he’s introduced to the enchantress Ecaterina, whose salon is Bucharest’s centre of magical expertise. 

But when Ecaterina’s brother dies of a mysterious new plague, it’s clear to Radu that his parents have not been idle. Soon Bucharest is in the grip of an undead epidemic—a less than ideal time for Ottoman Sultan Mahmud, Wallachia’s overlord, to call Bucharest’s nobility to assemble their armies in Istanbul for a holy war against Britain.

The Wallachians have long resented their Ottoman overlords, so Radu seizes the chance to eliminate them while also ridding Bucharest of the undead: he leads an army of vampires to Istanbul and sets them to feed on the Turks.

As Radu’s demons gut the city of Istanbul, their plans become horribly clear. This is only the start. With the Ottoman armies under their control, the undead are poised to suck the life out of the whole world. Radu, his lover Frank, and Ecaterina are appalled at what they’ve unleashed. But they may be too late to stop it.

Bedside Manner

(Hearts and Health 01)

D.J. Jamison

Dr. Paul Johnston can’t get a set of dark, somber eyes out of his head, and the timing couldn’t be worse.

The last thing he needs is to fall for a patient. Not now, when he’s been put on paid leave pending review of a formal complaint. One that most likely accuses him of sexual harrassment or impropriety of some kind. It’s possible he let his newfound freedom as a divorced, out-of-the-closet gay man go to his head, but he’s certain — mostly — he didn’t do anything wrong. Now, he’s struggling to handle the reality that his job is in danger and the only guy he wants should be off-limits.

Zane Kavanaugh is floundering, and there’s only one man who soothes the storm inside him.

Reeling from an assault that landed him in the hospital and the painful estrangement from his family since coming out, Zane is trying to get his feet under him and find his independence. He moves in with a roommate and searches for a job, all while recovering from a fractured arm and cracked ribs. None of that hurts as much as the emotional damage he’s suffered. When he connects with Dr. Paul Johnston outside of the ER, he’s drawn to the man’s calm, collected manner. It doesn’t hurt that Paul’s lack of experience with men is sexy as hell, and so are his over-the-top responses when Zane gets his lips on him.

There’s no right time to fall in love.

Paul is afraid to start a relationship, and Zane can only handle so much more rejection. Will these two find their perfect moment, or will they realize you can’t choose when and how you fall in love? If Paul can’t take a risk, he may have to choose: the career he loves or the first man to capture his heart.

Bedside Manner is Book 1 of the Hearts & Health series. This is a spin-off series from the book Heart Trouble and includes characters from that novel, but it can be read as a standalone.

Jackie Keswick

Close friends and partners at FireWorks Security, Joel Weston and Kieran Ross know each other’s strengths and weaknesses. They have each other’s backs, make a formidable team, and carefully ignore their volatile chemistry. 

When Kieran struggles with the aftermath of an assignment gone wrong, Joel is there to help. When Joel is caught in an explosion, Kieran jumps into a burning marina to rescue the man who means so much to him. But they never discuss what’s closest to their hearts, not prepared to risk their friendship for the mere possibility of something more. 

Faced with bombs, assassins, and old ghosts, Joel and Kieran must find out why they’re targets, who is coming after them, and—most of all—how each would feel if he lost the other. Should they continue as best friends, or is it time to take a leap of faith?

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

Every once in a while you find an author that can give you a story that you could lose yourself into, and Stormy is that author for me. The world she creates are unique, enticing and downright drool worthy. I love how the characters not only stand up for those they love but they don’t back down when someone is in trouble. They have a serious tone to them but there is just a hint of humor to make them perfect for me. 

Moose was six foot nine and had a heart of gold.  Forced to cage fight by his father has left him wishing for a way out.  Then one night, his little brother helped him to escape.  When his older brother found him, it was a sweet and very sexy little man who saved him, or I should say tried to.  Cory was that sweet and sexy little man, who lived in Cade Creek.  It would be the perfect place to live, and then another surprise landed in their laps.  Well if you want to know that surprise, you’re going to have to read the book.

This author’s stories that not only draw you in but keeps you there. She gives you hot sex, lots of love and tenderness, mixed in with excitement, adventure and lots of dangerous situations 
The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. To me there is nothing better than a good romance.

I can honestly tell you that this is 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. When Stormy puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.
