Blurb: When Sy learned that Connor, the young familiar who’d been staying with him, had been captured, he knew immediately that he could find him. After all, what use was it, him being a Necromancer, if he couldn’t locate lost souls. The fact he was hosting Dakar’s parents at the time, shouldn’t have made it an issue. After all, they were pack orientated and understood the need to bring a family member home. Didn’t they?

Dakar had been a loving son for fifty years, so when his mom pitched a fit at him, for being part of the efforts to bring Connor home, he was a wee bit annoyed. Unfortunately, he had bigger things to worry about. A demon had set his sights on his mate, and while that wasn’t as unusual as you might think, this particular demon came with complications.

Everything is coming to a head for this unusual family. A wicked sprite, an off-course priest, and a demoness who isn’t all she appears to be are just some of the hurdles Sy and Dakar will have to cross before they finally get their HEA. And what was a dragon doing in the middle of a field?

Review: This trilogy covers the same romantic couples as well as a couple others. To follow the amazing story I would suggest starting with book one. However there is some history of child abuse that shows up in the story so if by chance it is an issue with you, well you might not want to read it.

Luther’s, yes the devil, son is up to no good. He wants Sy to help him raise a army of the undead. To bad that isn’t going to happen but his attempts to get the guys to try is quite interesting. Dakar’s parents are showing their ugly side and need to get their asses kicked. Connor is a cutie that might get a surprise in the end. Clive and Steve are going strong and damn if they are not cute. Wait to see who is the new police captain, lets just say damn he is hot.

This story has the magic flowing, ghouls showing up, demons loosing their minds, and stuck up magical users. There is danger, excitement, twists, and the guys have it handled. It is a fast paced story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It is a story that has been well developed and told with the perfect flow of feelings. I liked how the guys are getting together and love is flowing.

I had a lot of fun reading this and can’t wait to check out the rest of this author’s work. I would definitely recommend this story.

Blurb: Necromancer Sy York and former Detective, Alpha wolf Dakar Rhodes are slowly learning to merge their lives together as true mates. With the steadfast Brock and loyal Brad, as well as Connor and Clive all sharing the estate with them, for the first time in his life, Sy feels as though he has a family around him.

But just as Sy’s starts to get used to his new life, an uninvited guest to his party brings trouble to the family group. Sy’s father has been scheming in the background for ten years and arrives complete with Sy’s new bride. Just as Sy remembers from when he was growing up, his father flatly refuses to accept Sy and Dakar’s mating and an angrily thrown power ball is just the start of the couple’s problems. To add mayhem to a volatile situation, Dakar isn’t handling the threat to his mating very well.

Dakar knew Sy was more powerful than him from the moment they met and has told himself a dozen times a day it didn’t matter. But a person’s inner thoughts have a way of exposing themselves, especially when magic users are involved. Angry and frustrated, Dakar lashes out – could this be the end of his and Sy’s mating before it even has time to settle down?

Ghostly grandfathers, scheming family members, new mates, and a meddling mother in law; this book has it all. Please note this is the second book in The Necromancer’s Smile trilogy. The Epilogue in this story is the prelude to book 3 and starts the thread of a new plot line. Because of this some might say that this does end on a cliffhanger although the story line in this book is resolved. You will need to read book one before reading this story.

Review: Each book in the Cloverleah Pack collection features our sexy necromancer Sy and his wolf mate Dakar as well as Brock and his sexy bear shifter mate Brad. This story is a continuous of the first book so you really need to read the one first.

Sy’s family is starting their crap and things are going to heat up. It would seem his dear old dad has brought an evil twit female for our sexy necromancer to mate with. Too bad the old fart is going to have to come to terms with the fact that Sy is mated. The problem is he is not getting the message and wants Dakar dead.

To top it off something is seriously wrong with Dakar and boy his attitude sucks. They are going to need gramps to come back from the dead to help.

This is one of my favorite stories that involves necromancers. I have never been a fan of them but this author just draws you in with Sy. This story caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. It gave me everything I could possibly want in a book. Action packed, excitement, danger and some hot sexy times are just a few things you get.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

Blurb: Detective Dakar Rhodes is an alpha wolf shifter who’s short on sleep and patience. Called to yet another crime scene, definitely the work of a serial killer, he’s shocked to learn the Pedace Police Department has a Necromancer as a consultant. Considering he’d moved to Pedace because of the lack of a coven in the area, he wasn’t pleased with the new development. His previous dealings with magic users never ended well. But when ordered to show the consultant the respect befitting his position, Dakar bites his tongue and longs for a swift conclusion to the case.

Necromancer Prince Sebastian York, or Sy to his friends, has a real issue with people. He doesn’t like or trust them, but because of his position, he has to deal with them. Dead people are so much easier – at least they don’t want anything from him. But Sy has been raised to do his duty and when he’s called to a crime scene, he doesn’t expect anything much to happen beyond talking to a few spirits. The last thing he thought he’d find is a wolf shifter claiming to be his mate.

One short meeting has a wealth of repercussions. Finding a serial killer is easy; coping with relationships is anything but. Demons, journalists, long held grudges and a familiar with loyalty issues all combine to make for a hectic time. It’s a case of one step forward, two steps back for Dakar and Sy, but when evil comes calling will they be able to rely on each other for a chance at an HEA?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This story is the first in a planned trilogy based on the two main characters. This book can be read as a standalone, but when you get to the end you will see that it would be better read all together.

I came across Lisa not to long ago, but it was easy to see why she would not only be a favorite author of mine but an auto buy on her books. Now normally I have not been a fan of necromancers, but the way Lisa tells this story, makes me rethink that thought. My attention was caught from the very beginning and kept all the way to the end. It gave me everything I could ask for in a story. Danger, hot sex, surprise, tender looks and some major excitement.

Sy is a necromancer and with one look, well lets just say he looks like a sexy boy toy. At least that is what the detective at the scene of a horrible murder thought. Can you imagine Dakar’s surprise when he finds out that Sy is the one he had asked for. Now all he has to do is to learn to think before he speaks, for the sexy young man is his mate. Dakar is one hell of a wolf shifter and detective but he sure has a way to go to being a good mate.

Sy has two hours a day, three days a week that he spends with people. Otherwise he is usually in the library with his nose in a book. His protector and best friend holds him to a deal on going out and talking to people, but he isn’t to sure how to talk to his mate. Someone is killing young men and stealing their heats and there is going to be some big surprises in store.

This book was amazing and I can’t wait to get book two. If I chose a book by its title, I would have not even bothered looking at this book. However when I realized who the author was, I knew I was going to have my head stuck in it. This series is going to be off the charts big hit.

I had a lot of fun with it and would guarantee that you will also.
