Blurb: Craig Gilchrist is the oldest of five siblings, the captain of the Parkerburg Fire Department, and all around buddy his friends run to when they have a problem. Unfortunately, he’s keeping a secret not only from the whole town, but his family as well. Living in the shadows works for him until one fateful night when a hot stranger walks across a smoky barroom, forcing Craig to make a move that could rock the foundation of his existence…and fill the void in his heart he doesn’t realize he has.

Melrose escaped the end of a bad relationship to start over in Parkerburg. With the support of his cousin and a job waiting tables at a great restaurant, he thinks his life is finally going pretty smoothly. That’s when his path crosses that of Craig Gilchrist, local fire captain. The big, beefy firefighter is definitely not his type. So why does he suddenly star in all of Melrose’s fantasies?

With Melrose at his side, Craig finally has the motivation to step out of the shadows and let Parkerburg see the real him…until trouble arises and the truth comes to light that perhaps he doesn’t know the real Melrose.

Lies and fears play havoc with their newly acquired relationship. Luckily, once ignited, the hearts of Parkerburg don’t burn out so easily.

The Hearts of Parkerburg stories can be read as standalones, each with a HEA…but trust me, you’ll want to read about all the sweet happenings in this quaint little town.

Reviewer: Cat

Review: Fire of the Heart is book 3 in this series. You do not have to read this in order as the town is the connection that makes this a series. There is mention of the previous characters but not enough to throw off the flow of this story.

Craig is the Fire Chief with a secret. No one knows he is gay except his ex-girlfriend Shawna, the owner of Craft Time. As soon as he sees the cute new guy in town he knows he is in trouble.

Melrose is sweet, and he is keeping his past a secret, not wanting people to know he was abused…by a smaller man.  When Bas shows up and hits him in the face, he tells the police a white lie that escalates.

Fire of the Heart is a sweet little romance with healing and coming out. It is a fast and fun read if you’re looking for something to lighten your day and lift your spirits.  I am curious as to who the next story will be about since there are so many characters.

I did find the story a bit skippy in places, and it was a bit jarring when it went from Melrose to Craig, but I loved the storyline, characters, and plots.

If you like hunky firefighters, cute waiters, a sweet romance with some hot man-sex, this is for you:

Blurb: Charles Darwin Millsworth, Chaz to one and all since infancy, has no wish to live up to the grandeur of his name. Fortunately, his Southern belle mama isn’t at all inclined to push her son into a career that won’t make him happy. She thinks he needs to loosen up and enjoy life. After all, that’s the whole point of being independently wealthy, isn’t it?

Chaz can see her point, but his father died in his forties as did his father before him. As far as Chaz is concerned, he has limited time on this earth to make his dreams come true. And he refuses to leave anyone weeping over a wasted life.

Sprocket Moretti is a simple guy. He loves his job, enjoys college, lives in his beloved childhood home—why worry about the little things when the big stuff looks so good. Unfortunately, one of the little things he tries not to stress over is a broken friendship with a very hot and bewildering sous chef. They were pals, hung out and had fun. But one night they stepped over that invisible line, and the next morning Chaz kicked Sprocket out of his bed and his life.

Now, no matter how much Sprocket tries to charm Chaz, the guy has no desire to return to their pre-sex playful bantering ways. And if Sprocket stays true to his motto, this little thing—Chaz—should be written off and never worried about again.

If Sprocket had known one night of reality-altering orgasms would endanger their easygoing friendship… How do you finish that sentence when all your mind wants is its friend back and all your body wants is another taste?

Reviewer: Cat

Review: Heart on the Run is a very fun romance. I love Lee Brazil and Haven Fellows. Though most of their stories are short, I liked that this was longer. There are a lot of awesome characters in this story, and the setting is a big part of the story as well. I loved the quaint town and how everyone knows everyone. I wish these towns existed.

This is book two in Hearts of Parkerburg. It stands alone fine as the people in town are what the series is about. If you read the first book, you will know the other characters and stuff mentioned and its good as well.

Back to this one. I adored Chaz. He is sweet and has a goal for his life. Even though he is from a wealthy family and doesn’t have to work, he went to culinary school, and his dream is to have a restaurant of his home someday. He often thought about what his mom might say in many circumstances, and this was in italics, so it was clear it was thought, but I am not sure how I felt about it.

It wasn’t confusing the story or anything it was just that some of them were a bit odd for me. That’s a personal opinion. I will admit some did make me laugh.

Sprocket was a fun character. His description showed us how fun he would be. I did feel sorry for him and liked how he tried so hard to still be friends with Chaz after Chaz’s first run. Then there is Mason. I adored Mason. He is so funny, and I liked how he was so protective of Sprocket and there seemed to be more there at least on his side. (Hope the next book is his.)

The story is fast paced, and I didn’t want to put it down. It is heartwarming, fun and I was shocked by a couple twists. I will admit I thought it a predictable romance and was in for a big surprise! I can’t say more without a spoiler. I will say this is an excellent romance and fun book and a great holiday or anytime read!

If you like sexy tattooed men, hot chefs, best friends, hot romances with a twist, a holiday story and an allover fantastic read, this is for you! *points to buy links*

Flyboy’s First Misadventure


Havan Fellows

Secrets? Oh yeah, Dean Wades has a doozy. When he goes up, he doesn’t necessarily come back down. Okay, that’s not true. Dean’s a master at falling, it’s the landing that could use improvement—a lot of improvement. After thirteen years of attempting to conquer this gravity defying mystery, he can no longer live with not knowing what he is anymore. So he heads cross-country to see the two people who just might be able to give him the answers he seeks…his folks.

Easygoing Gavin Trevor is always willing to help his family, even when they have ulterior motives…like forcing him to make up with his annoying older brother. When a simple task at his parent’s house puts him in a position of danger, he’ll need a lot more than luck to avoid a serious injury—he’ll need his very own superhero.

And the fates collide, well sort of. It may not be love at first sight—Gavin was unconscious in Dean’s arms for their initial introduction…but perhaps these two men can make it a relationship at first flight?

A threat against Gavin’s family throws a wrench in their plans, and while Dean gladly offers his amateur talent to help the mission, Gavin doesn’t want to put his rescuer’s life in jeopardy by risking exposure of the greatest secret ever.

This proves to be a rescue adventure for the books. Or is that a rescue misadventure?

Reviewer: Cat

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.

Blurb: Mischa knows his brothers are up to something. He doesn’t realize it will lead him to Donovan Holloway and change his carefree lifestyle forever.

Having grown up in a free-love hippie commune taking care of the parents who should have been taking care of him, Donovan Holloway, advertising executive, newly made vice president of the company where he’s worked for twenty years, has come a long way.

He’s worked hard to put himself through school and achieve the American dream. All he’s ever wanted is a normal family life—house in the suburbs, two cars, two kids, and a shaggy dog. A family to come home to, to care for, to care for him has been his dream since he was a small boy.

Green-eyed, liberally pierced, black-haired, Mohawk-wearing spoiled youngest son of a Hollywood producer and his actress wife, Mischa Blake have made a terrible mistake. In a fit of childish pique, he’s accepted a dare from his older brothers. The dare? Live on his own, supporting himself completely, for a year without accessing his trust fund. No problem. Except Mischa has never worked a day in his life, hasn’t finished college, and has absolutely no skills to bring to the table.

When he sees Donovan’s ad for a housekeeper/gardener, he has nothing to lose by applying, because …how hard can it be?

Reviewer: Donovan has recently had a promotion and is so busy he has no time to take care of his house and gardens. He decides to put out an ad. He isn’t having much luck when a sexy young man with a Mohawk a face full of piercings and the greenest eyes he has ever seen applies. Against his better judgement, he gives into the young man’s constant pleas.

Mischa and his brothers play truth or dare every week and this week he knows he is in for it. He is spoiled and has no responsibilities since he has a big trust fund, but his dare is to support himself one year without it.

This book is a lot of fun. It is light-hearted and introduces you to some intriguing characters. It’s a sweet May/December romance, and also a sort of opposites attract. I was very fond of Misha. The other characters and the Truth or Dare Game sets up for one heck of a fun series!

Keeping House one of those books you need when you want to wind down with something that makes you smile and takes your breath away. The sex is smoking!

If you like close brothers, May/ December romance, quirky main characters and some hot man-sex, this is definitely for you!

Blurb: Haunted. Seduced. Betrayed.

When ghost enthusiast Dr. Sabine Brusilov plucks a weathered skull from the mud and debris at the bottom of the Mississippi River, he gets more than he bargained for. The skull comes with a moody, petulant, sexy ghost who is not shy about his attraction to Sabine. Along with proof that ghosts really do exist, Sabine finds a treasure beyond compare.


Love is everything to long dead Barton Montoire. He’s lived for it, faced dishonor for it…killed for it. Now that he’s found it again, he’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep Sabine at his side for eternity. Even if that means more blood on his hands.

With the darkness that circles Sabine growing stronger, and his lover’s actions becoming more erratic and unpredictable, Bart is challenged to protect his love from some unknown danger.
Ghosts and humans exist on two separate planes, and there’s only one way for them to be together.

But betrayal lurks in the shadows…

Reviewer: Cat

Review: This is the third book in this series and the 9th in the collection. You do need to read the series in order and it would help if you are reading the entire collection.

Sabine has been trying to prove the existence of ghosts. He found the remains of a body several years before and he and Bart have been lovers since. Recently though there is a darkness settling around Sabine and after four attempts on his life he knows what he must do.

Bart loves Sabine but senses there is a problem. He garners the help from all of his friends, Laurant a sex demon, Nico a hot older vampire, Jett a werewolf and Artie a physic to help him figure out what is wrong with Sabine.

This is a short story so I can’t say too much without giving it away. I love all the characters and I love the relationship between Sabine and Bart. I really like Bart even if he is a ghost I like that he was from so far ago and a riverboat gambler. There is so much emotion in this story and lots of action, suspense and it is hotter than hell (yes pun is attended).

If you like supernatural and paranormal characters, mystery, suspense, spells, and some hot man-sex you will love this!

Loving Jacob


Lee Brazil

When Malcolm Jenner’s sex-on-the-side turns into more, he isn’t above begging for a second chance.

High profile attorney Malcolm Jenner is looking for a bit of fun, nothing serious. He’s got duties and responsibilities, after all. Though he’s not one to choose his lovers from the office, Jacob Renault is an attraction too compelling to resist.

However, Jacob isn’t interested in temporary. He wants it all—Prince Charming, the castle, the happily ever after. There’s no rule that says the younger man can’t have fun while he’s searching for his prince, though…

At first neither is willing to compromise on their stance, but an agreement is reached, with each man planning to do his best to subvert the other to his viewpoint. Lust turns to love, and what’s impossible becomes merely improbable, but is it going to be enough?

Heart of Clay


Lee Brazil

The ghost at the heart of the problem…       

Clayton Merk, accomplished, yet arrogant, businessman, has a reputation for one-night stands and being steadfastly anti-relationship. When he decides to return home—to the root of all his problems—he brings a co-worker with him as a buffer against the past. Even though he’s ready to lay old ghosts to rest, he certainly didn’t expect a literal ghost to lend a hand.

Brad Jorgensen, Clay’s former best friend, has also clung to the past in an unhealthy way. He resents Clay for a lot of things, not the least of which is his cousin’s death decades earlier. At one time they’d been closer than brothers, but blame and anger are powerful weapons of destruction, and they’ve left Brad in a wasteland of self-doubt, hatred, and loneliness.

The ghost at the heart of the problem has had enough. Bobby isn’t pleased with his cousin or his ex. Their refusal to let go of the past has kept him on a plane where he doesn’t belong and isn’t at home. He’s expended all his energy trying to get through to Brad, without success, but Clay’s return finally gives him a foot in the door…or out the door.

If he could just get the two stubborn men together.

Chance at Trust


Havan Fellows

The strength to walk away from an abusive long-term relationship proves Em is a survivor. But surviving isn’t necessarily living, and Em has created a life on a plateau of his own making, not even entertaining the idea of a new boyfriend. When he shows interest in a very sexy barista, his best friend sees a chance to open Em’s eyes to the possibilities in life.

Penn couldn’t help his double and triple take when the sexy man walked into his mother’s coffee shop. Priding himself on always remaining calm and collected in all situations, Penn is surprised by the strength of his attraction for this stranger. When the stranger’s loud-mouthed friend proposes a way for Penn to see Em again, he takes it.

While Em comes with baggage—his eyes tell a story of pain and distrust—Penn isn’t one to shy away from a challenge, especially when his heart is so quickly getting tied up in the equation, and he’s prepared to break through Em’s walls and give him a chance to trust.

Christmas in His Heart


Lee Brazil & Havan Fellows

Christmastime brings joy to hearts everywhere. Between snow angels, festive clothing, holiday decorations, and of course, all the beautiful lights, it’s hard not to partake in the season.

Unless you no longer have Christmas in your heart.

Dermot Alasdair has never shared the horrific memories that keep him from celebrating the happiest time of the year, nor does he ever plan to. He’s fine being alone and shut off from everyone; he has his restaurant and that’s all he needs. He believes that, too…until the craft store next door from his eatery hires a perpetually smiling annoyance. Really, it isn’t normal for someone to be that happy all the time.

Xander Leahman didn’t know what he was getting into when he accepted an invitation to visit his best friend and help her interview people for the newly created position of manager at Craft Time. When a surly man bumps into him and then walks away with an enticing sway to his hips, Xander decides the position—and Dermot—are perfect for him. Now all he can think of is finding ways to get Dermot out of his clothes. Well that, and how to open this grinch’s heart to the Christmas season and, hopefully, love.

Blurb: Bank Vice President Sydney Huber has a habit. Every day for six months, he’s eaten the same thing for lunch, in the same restaurant, just so he can be near the object of his affections.

It’s sweet…that’s what server Max Bridger thinks. Until their first date reveals a dark side to the handsome banker that Max hadn’t suspected, and can’t live with.

Purchase Link:

Review: Syd has had a crush on max since he first saw him. He has been eating the same lunch at the same time and at Max’s station every day since. Max has noticed Syd but thinks the man is out of his league. They finally meet, go out and things begin to go downhill from there. Syd seems to have a jealous streak and Max doesn’t want to get caught up in a relationship like his mother and father had.

This is another beautifully written story. Lee has a way with words and descriptions that make everything seem romantic, even Syd and his stalkerish behavior. I have to say though I really liked both Syd and Maxwell. They each had their own faults and I like a story that the two involved have to work through their issues.

The only issue I had, was that all of a sudden the story seemed to end suddenly then skip to an epilogue two years down the line. I would have rather seen more of them working though the issues instead of a fast wrap up.

If you like, bankers, waiters, students, family issues, jealousy, and hot and steamy romances this is for you

As if starting a new job, picking up the reins of a disorganized former colleague, and moving back in with his parents while he saves for a down payment on a house of his own isn’t enough, Cecil Trace has just discovered that part of the Art Director’s job at the exclusive Linwood Academy is putting on a series of holiday pageants…with the first one celebrating Thanksgiving just three short weeks away.

He’s got enough on his hands getting reluctant students ready to wow their parents and the community with their brilliance, and preparing a holiday showing of his own artwork at a local gallery, he doesn’t need recalcitrant but brilliant math instructor Reese Cavelli arguing about every little detail.

While Reese understands the new Art Director’s urgency, he can’t allow Cecil to undermine his authority with the students. Reese can’t help being an ass to the new art director, and he knows in part his behavior is due to his own insecurities, but it’s also got a lot to do with the fact that the vibrant young artist is so damned sexy in his jeans and bohemian shirts. Every time he comes into contact with Cecil Trace, he finds himself

It’s Simple, Simon


Lee Brazil

Simon Carter has achieved unimaginable success and he owes it all to a man from his past whose scorn set fire to his ambition.

“It’s Simple, Simon. You lack ambition.”

Chase Garvin’s jibe had sent Simon Carter on unexpected paths and brought him unimaginable success. No longer a penniless musician, the highly paid investment banker is going home for the first time in years. He plans to rest, relax, and spend a little time rubbing his ex-lover’s nose in his success. A visit to the Renaissance Fair brings this not-quite-so-simple- Simon nose to nose with his past and somehow revenge doesn’t seem quite so attractive.

Chase Garvin, Denver, Colorado’s very own Pie Man, is still incredibly handsome. What’s more, the more mature Chase is very appreciative of Simon’s talents.

When the old attraction flares between them, Simon and the Pie Man get caught up in tasting the wares, and neither counts the pennies.

Blurb: Prince Charming wannabe Finn Lorensson is living his own fairy tale. Sure, his intended is more frog than princess, but what’s love worth if you don’t have to slay a few dragons on the way?

Cannon Malloy is adapting…to life in Flagstaff, the cold, teaching…and to Finn. He’s about decided that letting himself be loved isn’t such a bad thing after all.

When an opportunist from Finn’s past threatens both love and career, can the frog save his prince?

Purchase Link:

Review: This is book two of the In From the Cold series and part of a collaboration called Pulp Friction. The book does stand-alone ok, but to get the full impact and understand who all of the characters are it is best to read each series in order and the reading order of the Pulp Friction.

Cold Comfort picks up where Cold Snap left off with Finn still trying to figure out how to get through to Cannon. The story is full of emotion and has a bit of suspense tossed in. There is lots of sexual tension as Cannon tries to keep his distance from Finn but can’t resist the pull. Then a real twist was tossed in with Cannon’s interest in one of the new tenants, Park. I will say that but really shocked me, since I’ve been following Cannon since the years books. I still am not in love with Cannon but he is intriguing. Finn on the other hand is extremely sexy.

If you like college professors, men with secrets, hot sexy Norse God looking men, a little hot mansex and a surprising ending this is for you.

In a private hospital room, motionless and still beneath a sheet, lies Joseph Caldwell. His surgery has passed, to all intents and purposes, successfully. The doctors offer no explanation for why he hasn’t awakened from the medically induced coma. The stream of visitors trickles down to nothing, and still he lies in endless sleep. Nearly everyone has given up any hope for his recovery.

Anesthesiologist Oliver Gideon is racked with guilt and confusion. Could he have somehow done something wrong? His superiors assure him he is not at fault, the science he reviews tells him his dosages were correct, but the longer Caldwell sleeps the more Oliver is haunted by the loneliness of the figure in the bed. He spends every possible moment with the patient, reading, talking, trying to fill the little room with sound, to stir a response that science isn’t sure is possible.

Morpheus, King of Dreams has welcomed Joseph to his realm. Some dreams, he explains, are true, and some are false. There’s only one way tell. Joseph loves the dream world Morpheus has woven for him, for in it, he’s found something he never found in reality—a soul mate. For the first time, his life is perfect.

In the end, he has to choose. He cannot stay in the Realm of Morpheus forever. It’s either back to the land of the sun, and potential loneliness or on to the realm of the lost.

Review: Joseph Caldwell has undergone surgery. He did not wake up from a medically induced coma. The anesthesiologist Oliver Gideon refuses to give up hope that Joseph will come back as everyone else has seemed to have done.  He stays with him every chance he gets, talking to him, reading to him, anything to get him to respond, whether the nurses like him being there or not.

Joseph has found himself in the realm of dreams, some are true and some are not. Joseph has to find his path back to reality or choose to stay forever in the realm of dreams. In his dream he has found a soul mate and life is perfect, does he want to chance waking up to find this is just a dream?

This story is very different and intriguing. Though it begins six months after the fact, the backstory is dropped slowly, just enough to let us know what’s going on, and the two stories complement each other well. The realm of dreams is intriguing, I’m not sure I would want to wake up either. I did find in a couple of places, that some things from Ollie’s point of view were repeated in Joey’s point of view. The story was interesting in the fact that something beginning as guilt turned into something so much deeper and the patient did hear and feel what was going on around him. I have always believed that people in comas can hear and feel people around them. I was heartbroken that everyone gave up so quickly on Joseph and relieved that the anesthesiologist refused to let Joey go. This is a beautiful, yet gripping, love story and almost made me cry.

If you like 50’s songs, Drs., stories about dreams, and comas, love, faith, this is definitely for you!

Blurb: Professor of Literature Finn Lorensson is unashamedly a romantic. In his own words, he’s a white knight in search of a charming prince to save. In fact, he’s doing a good deed by stepping into the breach for his long-time friends and landlords at Mountain Shadows when a voice on the phone sends him tumbling headfirst into love/lust/fascination.


Four months later, a self-absorbed Dr. Cannon Malloy shows up in the flesh and has the poor grace to not remember their conversation. That could be because he’s running from his past and too busy looking over his shoulder to appreciate what’s right in front of him.


A winter storm and circumstance conspire to bring them together, but it’ll take more than a charming smile and a pure heart to bring this frog-prince in from the cold.

Review: This year’s Pulp Fiction series is off to one heck of a great start. Just in case you don’t know what Pulp Friction is, I’ll fill you in. Its four authors, each with a stand a-lone series but the stories are all based in one particular area and the characters from each series sort-of interact.  At the end of the year, they have one big explosive finale to sum up all the stories. You don’t have to read them all but to get the best effect I recommend you do. I think this is a cool concept.


Cold snap is the first book of Lee Brazil’s series In From the Cold. It is the second in the Pulp Friction series. This cover is HOT!!! If you’ve never read Lee Brazil, you should.  He has a way with characters and can be sweet and sexy or sizzling.  I have to say Finn is one of those sizzling characters. Sexy, Norse God looks, a romantic and a knight-in-shining armour type. What more could you want? Well I think Finn may have a little secret I bet we find out for sure in the next book.  Cannon. I have to say I was a bit surprised with Cannon. He is from Lee’s series Chances Are and I have to say I did not like Cannon at all in that book.  I think I may actually get to like him here.


The story is interesting, and I found it a bit romantic. But then again I fell in love with Finn from the get go.


If you like snowstorms, Hot, sexy, Norse God looking men with accents, Professors, broken men, Doctors and romance this story is for you!

Blurb: Chance Dumont. Marcus Prater. Zachary Carmichael. Wick Templeton. Friends through circumstance, brothers by choice.

After facing off with his personal demons, Wick shuts down, but he never anticipated how his impulsive off-the-grid vacation would affect the rest of his chosen brothers. No one can hurt you like someone you love.

Before they have time to work things out, the serial killer who has been targeting Atlanta’s gay community strikes close to home. Again. It’s enough to cause an all-hands meeting at Chances Are. But when one of the brothers fails to show, it becomes clear that the close connection the men have to the murder victims is no coincidence.

They’ve got the smarts, the weapons, and the willingness to do whatever it takes to find their missing brother—before it’s too late. What brought them together in the first place may just be that which tears them apart forever.

Four authors. Twenty books. One explosive finale.

Purchase Link:

Review: This is the finale of a collaboration of four interactive series. I hope I worded that right. You really have had to have read at least some of these to understand what’s going on. It would be preferable if you have read all four series to really understand in full effect.  I have read both the Chances Are and Wicked Ways series through and a couple of the others. I loved how these authors collaborated and interacted each of the stories. 

In this explosive finale, we wrap up a mystery of who is killing gays and why. It’s has become very personal for each of these men. I found the mystery exciting and interesting as it bought out new emotions in some of these characters. 

Of course, there is sex. Good, hot, loving, mansex. Each of these authors has a style of their own bringing out the best in their characters and blending them with the rest. The Christmas scene at the end brought tears to my eyes.

I felt the finale wrapped all the series well, and left me with a warm fuzzy feeling. I cannot wait to see what is in store with the new upcoming collaborations.

If you like mystery, romance, family, and some hot mansex this is for you.

Blurb:It takes an irresistible bribe to pry Harold Gretton away from his experiments to act as a bodyguard for an escaped prisoner. Bored with his confinement, American businessman Martin Tillman is delighted to find that Harold is a like-minded fellow. The sparks that fly between them seem to go beyond mere passion to Martin, but Harold is disinclined to put his trust in emotion.

Can Martin convince his scientific lover that what lies between them is more than experimentation?

Be Warned: m/m sex, light bondage

Review:Harold’s brother Perry charges Harold to keep a fugitive safe. Harold agrees reluctantly until he meets Martin. Feelings stir, reminding him of ‘experiments’ he and Andre conducted before he was sent home from his brother Nash’s.

This is yet another beautifully written work by a very talented storyteller. Poignantly written, a great story, interesting characters, a touch of intrigue and hot mansex, what more could you ask for?

I highly recommend this to anyone that loves historical romance, mystery and intrigue, inventors, and hot mansex.

Blurb:Chance thought he knew true heartache when Cannon walked out on him. He finds out how wrong he is when current lover Rory decides he’s done waiting for Chance to return his love. 

After two months of seeking amnesia in the bottom of a bottle, Chance is on the verge of resurrecting the protective shell that kept his emotions safe for so long. Then the past comes knocking on his door again, and he has no choice but to own his mistakes. 

Odds are fifty-fifty he’ll get a second chance…will he make the same mistakes all over again or does he stand a ghost of a chance?

Purchase Link:

Review: This book picks up where the last ended with Rory gone. It’s been two months and even Wick hasn’t been able to find him. Chance has realized that he loves Rory, but it’s a little late.

I love this series. I like the way each character blends in form the other books in this series by the other authors as well, though if you don’t read the other books you really don’t know too much about those characters. It’s about time Chance starts showing some feeling, though I like he isn’t a sappy character, though in this one he tends to be. I felt he became more human in this book. I can’t wait to see what Rory’s reaction is if and when Chance finds him.

I recommend this if you like, strong feelings, ex-cops, private detectives, a man finding his feelings, and some mystery.

Review: Be warned:  m/m sex, sex toys

After a tryst at a masquerade party, Randall finds himself intrigued by the man he thought was his lover, but found out, too late, was not.  He wants to see the mystery man again, but will he be able to handle the truth of who his mystery man is?

This was a beautifully written Regency romance full of hot sex, mystery intrigue and true love.   I loved this collaboration between two fantastic authors and can’t wait for the next one.  I thought the sex was graphic and hot, but well written into the mystery and intrigue. So well that it came off also loving and sensual. Very good story by two great Authors!

Recommendation: If you like Regency romance, mystery, intrigue, very hot graphic sex, Lee Brazil or Raven McAllen you won’t be disappointed.
