Blurb: Is it possible for a demon to be a good man, or are all who have fallen for temptation evil at the core?

Tristan, Machidiel, and Alastor are bound together by love, but their lives are running far from smooth. Thanks to Tristan’s demonic bargain with an incubus, they have no choice other than to accept that their lives are never going to be the same again.

To fulfill his obligations to the demon Tristan has two choices—remain with the incubus as his trainee or find a mortal to take his place. Neither option is appealing.

The three lovers struggle to release Tristan from his bargain, but find bigger problems on the horizon when a human caught up in the mess is taken prisoner by the Demon King himself.

With no help forthcoming from either angels or demons, the three lovers are on their own with a seemingly impossible mission before them—rescue the mortal from the Underworld.

Mac, meanwhile, has problems of his own. The archangels are voting on whether to ban relationships between angels and demons, and if the new law is passed, he must choose between his wings and his lovers.

The three of them believe their love is strong enough to see them through the hard times ahead, but if they aren’t careful, the repercussions of Tristan’s bargain could tear their ménage apart forever.

Reader Advisory: This book contains multiple male ménage.
Publisher’s Note: This book was previously released by another publisher. It has been revised and re-edited for release with Totally Bound Publishing.

Review: This is the 2nd edition and has been polished. The story has no changes to it. This story is part of a series and must be read in order.

Tristan, Machidiel (Mac) and Alastor might love each other, but the repercussions from Tristan becoming an incubus is much more far-reaching than any of them thought. Trying to find a way out of Tristan’s bargain isn’t going well and when Tristan needs help during his training, he pulls an innocent into his problems and leads him to danger. With a dream demon playing games with their dreams and an innocent suffering because of Tristan’s choices, Tristan, Mac, and Alastor have to face their past to move forward. But, it just might tear them apart.

“God damn you, L.M. Brown. You should be devising torture in Hell.” those were my first thoughts when I finished this book, and they were also my second and third thoughts as well…. My fourth thought was ‘where does she live?’, because I want that third book now! Tristan, Mac, and Alastor are moving into a new home, but their happiness is tinged with the awareness of Tristan’s deal with Lawrence. Tristan’s first training session doesn’t go well and the repercussions are far-reaching with their repeated combined lives in the past being revealed and the truth of Alastor’s past being revealed.

This is a great story that will pull you every which way, as you follow the angel, demon and incubus as they try to sort out their problems. Tristan’s actions are what resound throughout this story. Everything he does seems to have devastating consequences. Mac has problems of his own, as Raphael tries to convince him Alastor isn’t worthy of his time. Alastor has his past shown to him, after being plagued by nightmares and the truth of his long forgotten actions affect his relationship.

This is definitely a rollercoaster ride, as you cheer for their love and then doubt their actions. At one point, you want to smack the crap out of Tristan, as he walks away from the mess he makes and you pity Alastor, as he still doubts his place in the relationship. We are given insight into others actions and we are given a very surprising twist. We are also left with the big question of just what Tristan, Alastor, and Mac are going to do now.

I have to recommend this to those who love angels, demons and incubus getting it on, if you adore conflict and arguments, if you love surprising twists at the last-minute and you love cliffhanger endings that leave you panting for more.

Kindergarten teacher by day, sensual masseuse by night, Peter Davidson never thought things would get so tough that he’d need to give out sensual massages in secret in order to make ends meet. But when the school slashes his hours in half and with no other jobs available in town, he stumbles across the opportunity when fiddling around on an online dating site and a rather handsome older gentleman offers him money.

What he thinks will be a onetime thing turns into a booming business at night, and Peter promises himself he’ll only do it long enough just until he gets caught up. He has nothing else going on in his life, after all.

Handsome, classy and educated as he is, Peter still hasn’t met The One. Until, that is, he meets Chip – the parent of a new student, who turns out to be more man than he’s ever dreamed of.

What will Chip say if he finds out what Peter is doing on the side? And, what’s worse, what will the school say when they find out this teacher has been a very bad boy?

Cornish pastry chef Seb Wright dreads the summer tourist season. The cash injection to his artisan fudge pantry is more than welcome, the extra work, less so. Then one summer, a shadowy Good Samaritan catches his eye. Irish Traveller Dex is bewitching, a beautiful sullen enigma who turns Seb’s world upside down until he disappears in the night, vanishing like a mystical summer rain.

Twelve months later Dex is in the midst of a dark storm. A slave to his master, ‘Uncle’ Braden, he spends his days cleaning caravans and his nights working in Braden’s other businesses. His short summer with Seb seems a lifetime ago. Lost in the savage violence of the murky underworld, he doesn’t dare dream he’ll ever find his way back, until one night, a brutal crime opens the door for a chance escape. A new life beckons, old faces emerge, and immersed in the heady vibe of London’s East End, new love begins to heal his fractured heart.

He struggled against feelings that grew every time he and Zach were together, telling himself they were just having a fling. When Zach confessed his love one hot summer night, Brandon panicked. He scoffed at Zach and made sure he walked away first.

Brandon realizes his feelings haven’t changed, but Zach treats Brandon with scorn despite Brandon’s every attempt to show Zach he’s no longer the self-centered man he used to be.

Blurb: Rojan Ja’Dar is a rogue, a pirate that buys and sells cargo for a living. He is his own man, skirting the edge of the law and answering to no one. Arriving on a particular planet, he goes to drop off cargo and discovers a human pet being sold at an auction house. Intrigued, Rojan breaks all his rules and buys the human as his pet. It isn’t until after he purchases the human that Rojan discovers he’s just bought his mate.

Claiming Tyion Rhodes is not as easy as buying him. Not understanding the danger he is in, Tyion fights his situation as a highly prized and sought after pet in Rojan’s world. Rojan has to convince Tyion that being his mate is not as bad as being a pet, even if they have to pretend to the rest of the world that Tyion is just a possession.

That is hard to do when someone is after Tyion, someone not from Earth.

Note: This book was previously published with another publisher and has been extensively revised and expanded.

Review: Rojan sets out to buy pet, and he is drawn to human Tyion as soon as he sees him. But not only is Tyion his new pet, he also Rojan’s new mate. Tyion went to sleep, and woke up being sold as a slave. All he wants is to go home. He is terrified about what is going on. Rojan has his work cut out for him convincing Tyion to accept his new life.

Rojan and Tyion have their misunderstandings at the start. Rojan starts training Tyion as his pet, including punishments. It isn’t until Rojan is asked to look at things from Tyion’s point of view that he really understands what his mate is going through. Once things get cleared up and they mate, they start to accept and understand each other. Tyion’s real personality starts to shine through, and he is a bit of a wise ass.

I read this book back when it was originally published in 2012. I loved it then and that not has not changed. This 2nd edition has some editing and more dialogue. But the overall story and feel did not change. The ending now ties in better for the next book in the series.

It definitely gives a more detailed ending then the first edition. I really enjoyed the additions.

So if you love books with mates, aliens, and tails this one is for you.

Blurb: Werewolf packs traditionally stay aloof from one another, but gossip still spreads like wildfire. Whispers and rumors about Simon and his mate-bonded male lover, and the pack’s experiences with human were-hunters, are still making the rounds.

Aaron, the Alpha of Minneapolis West, would love to see his pack’s fame fade into the past. But the arrival of two strange wolves makes it clear that for some outsiders, his pack is still considered a pariah, or a threat.

For others, it has unwanted appeal.

Purchase Link: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/309778

Review: This short happens about 3 months after book two in the series. Things have settled down a little for the pack and seem to be on track. Aaron and Zach are still together but hiding their relationship from most, or trying to. Things are still unsettled among the packs and Aaron does not want to rock the boat anymore more than he has. However, when two men ask for membership in the pack, Aaron may not have a choice.

As Aaron has made a name for himself, and it’s not the best to most pacts. He is the alpha that let the gay mates live, and he has a secret weapon in Zach. Zach and is genius hacking skills are all over the rumor mills. He is helping other packs secure their computers and systems, but other believes he has the secrets on all of them. Of the two men apply to the pack, one is there in good faith, but the other is not.

This brief look into the lives of the pack shows that other packs still consider them a threat. And some Alphas will do anything to eliminate them. A lot happens in this book, and still leaves you waiting for the next shoe to drop. But it also shows that the pack will stick together and fight whatever comes their way.

Blurb: Viktor Carsten has been a loner all his adult life. After witnessing the death of his parents, he’s in no rush to fall in love for fear he’ll lose them, too. A night out drinking and dancing leads him to the one thing he’s been trying to avoid, his mate.

“Run!” was the last word Shane Pickett’s mother uttered to him before she died, and he’s been running ever since. Shane being a rare white tiger shifter makes him a valuable commodity to hunters, and because of that, he can’t afford to form attachments or stay in one spot for too long, but all that changes when he moves to Silver Creek. He’s finally created a life he doesn’t want to give up and finds the mate he can’t live without.

When Shane’s past comes knocking on his door it’s up to Viktor to rescue his mate, but will he be in time?

Review: Viktor is a wham, bam, thank you type of man. He has sex with man and leaves right after. He doesn’t really care as long as he gets what he wants at the time. That is until he meets his mate at a local gay club. They have sex in the bathroom, and then Viktor’s mate disappears on him. Now he needs to locate him, and deal with the problems that come with him. And convince Shane that being mated is a good thing.

Shane is on the run from hunters. His mother was killed by them saving Shane, and he does all he cannot to be caught. When he meets his mate, he knows he shouldn’t have him but he can’t resist Viktor. He knows that if the hunters find him again he will have to run. But it will be hard. With Viktor not only does he get a mate, but also a family. Something he missed since his mother’s death.

The attraction between Viktor and Shane is hot right from the start. They have no issues with the sex. Shane tried to put off the mating bite saying he is not ready, but really just scared that something would happen. Once the two get over their personal issues things seem to be on track for a happy mating. When the worst happens, Viktor and his family come to the rescue.

This was a good installment of the series and I look forward to reading more about this pack.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Spencer Henderson and Ben Cooper have been best friends for a long time. Spencer has always been there for Ben when there was trouble at home and he would stay at Spencer’s until things calmed down. What the both of them don’t know is that they have feelings for each other.

I felt sorry for both Ben and Spencer. Ben for having an alcoholic parent who he desperately wanted approval from only to have him hit his ideas for his son in him. I didn’t really understand why he would date someone he didn’t have feelings other than friendship for other than to keep his dad from asking about his love life. Spencer for being in love with Ben and never saying anything to let him know.

Emotional roller coaster with a lot of drama in both Ben and Spencer points of view. If they had only talked to each other about their feelings, they would’ve saved themselves a lot of misunderstandings and misery along the way.

But it was a good read and the sex between Spencer and Ben was hot.

Terrence Neo is one of the pack’s fiercest enforcers. Chained to his past and shattered by the rejection of his former mate, he’s sworn to lead a solitary existence. The rest of the wolves respect his decision, but not Al.

When Terrence’s old mate returns to New Haven seeking to win him back, Al refuses to let the Beta go, but is Terrence willing to fight for their future, or will he allow himself to be lured back into the chains of his past?

Purchase Link: http://www.evernightpublishing.com/gluten-free-gamma-by-angelique-voisen/

Review: This is book three in the Wolves of New Haven Series and they should be read in order. It is an amazing series although I wish they had more depth to them. I would love to hear more with Terrence and Al. It just went too fast for my taste to truly love.

Al had the hots for Terrence and every time he saw him, he just about melted into the floor. Thinking that this man, this wolf would never notice someone like him. Boy was he wrong, although he did know Terrence was only a one-night stand he was surprised that Terrence mated with him. However, Terrence is hiding something from not only him, but also his entire pack. Something that could cause Al to lose his life.

This is a good story just not long enough for me. It has characters that you will fall in love with and want to protect. You will fall in love with Al from the moment you start reading about him. He is just sweet, tender, caring and very much lovable. I love this story, with so much humor in it. But it is mixed with serious tones, also.

I would recommend reading this if you love sexy men, tender mates, devious ex-mates, excitement, danger, and hot sex.
