Blurb: Centuries ago, the sorrow of a spurned mermaid cursed the ocean. Now the fate of the sea rests on the shoulders of her great-nephew, Prince Caspian of Atlantis. Upon inheriting his ancestor’s magical voice, he is also entrusted with breaking her curse by finding true love with a human. But Caspian doesn’t believe love comes at the swish of the tail, at least, not until he meets oceanographer Stefan Firth.

In spite of the bond that forms between them from the beginning, Stefan’s skepticism and his heartbreak over a lost love keep him from even considering a relationship with Caspian. Caspian has no choice but to follow the path his great-aunt once did and resort to the Sea Witch’s assistance. He must help Stefan love again if he is to break the curse and bring them their fairytale ending.

Blurb: Josh Braden and Ryan Winters are like day and night – Josh is a defense attorney, Ryan is a cop. Josh is reserved, Ryan is laid back. Josh is openly gay, Ryan is in the closet.

Once they meet, however, neither of them can deny an attraction. They suddenly have one thing in common – the need to be together, both in the courtroom and in the bedroom.

As time passes, they realize that their relationship has become more than just hot, satisfying sex. But will love be enough to overcome their differences? Will they be able to work through them, or will it take a near tragedy to make them see what is really important?

Review: This story turned out better than I thought. It actually had me in tears through some parts of it. I was sure that it would not end up the way it did and for that, I am sure. Josh was a lawyer and mostly reserved. He was out in his life, but there was one man that he had wanted to the point that he was afraid to wish for what he wanted. Ryan however was not only a cop but in the closet. He is very laid back but he doesn’t want to come out. He wanted to hide it.

When they met, you could feel the attraction. Josh knew that Ryan was looking for a place so he comes up with an idea to at least have him around. Ryan jumped at the chance. Things start heating up with them, but their main problem was Ryan hiding his sexuality from those around him and Josh’s fear of Ryan getting injured or worse killed. They fought about it and it was driving them slowly apart. All that changed when Ryan was injured in a car accident.

A car accident that at first they were not sure he would survive but he ended up not remembering what Josh and Ryan were together. He was willing to do everything and anything to make him happy, even if Ryan never remembered what they were together.
T

he part of the story that pained me was the fact that you could tell they were in love but it did not seem enough to bring Ryan out in the open. Also, when Ryan woke up from his accident he didn’t remember what they meant together. It seemed like to me his objection of coming out was slowly showing in him now that he is awake. When he remembered the argument shows up again, but they are willing to make it work. I did love the story though. It just seems like some people actually might be like this. It comes off so very real and true.

I loved the story and can’t wait to check out the rest of Susan’s books.

Blurb: Milan Ambrozi has hidden from the world and from love for far too long. After he receives a letter from his sister, Ari, that their father is dying, he decides to finally face his inner demon and go back to be with everyone he loves who he left behind.

Carlos Hernandez has been picking up the pieces ever since his ex-lover, Milan, suddenly disappeared from everyone’s life five years ago. Carlos has been helping Ari and her terminally ill father through this trying time. When Milan returns, Carlos lashes out at him with pent-up anger and hurt he’s kept bottled all of these years.

Milan explains he had no choice, that he had to leave to keep them safe. Yet he refuses to say why. They decide to set aside their differences and try to be friends. But that passionate fire Carlos and Milan had never died. It’s alive and hotter than ever, so is their love they keep denying to each other.

When people in the city start dying from spontaneous combustion, Carlos uncovers that Milan’s involved somehow. Will Milan tell Carlos the truth or will his inner demon lash out at everyone he loves?

Review: This is book one in this series and I would suggest reading them in order. It will keep you from not getting lost, gives you an insight into their world and explain why they do the things they do.

This is a cute story although it did have me questioning why Milan had left me guessing but he answers it a little further in the story. I found a new world that was amazing. Milan and Carlos had been in love and were planning to go on with their lives together. However when Carlos had asked him to get married he panicked. Going and getting drunk ended up with him in the alley getting bitten by a werewolf.

He awoke surrounded by priest and told what had happened. He spent the later years trying to help those that had ended up like him. Living in a monastery with the brotherhood kept his life busy. However, it did not make him forget his father, sister and the man he loved. He thought about Carlos all the time. So when his sister calls him about this father he rushes back. He finds his father dying, his little sister crying and Carlos madder than a hornet. Carlos had gone on with his life, engaged to a woman and just wanting to help his adopted family. However, things don’t always go the way things are planned. Carlos was meant to be with Milan and life has a way at making that happen.

I love the dangers that this story shows you that is out there. I also loved the way Carlos had taken to the new of Milan being a werewolf. It shows the love is still there going strong. I have found another favorite here and I cannot wait for the next book to come out. My only problem is that there was not enough to it. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading it and kept it all the way to the end. It left me wanting more. I would recommend reading this story. It gives you sexy men, shifters, excitement, and the sense of danger.

This story will give you everything you could want in it and still leave you wanting to know more. It makes you want to go out and get the next book. I was glad to have had a chance to read it.

Blurb: Josh and Dan have been best friends since grade school. Now Dan is getting married and Josh is to be his best man. When Dan confesses after his buck’s show that he’s getting cold feet, Josh – who can’t help feeling a little jealous of his friend – doesn’t understand why he wouldn’t want to marry the gorgeous Rachel Moore.

Everything becomes clear later after a few drinks. They share a kiss that leads to them having sex and Josh finds out the best friend he thought he knew so well is actually gay. He doesn’t know how to deal with this or his guilt when he has to face Dan’s fiancée and tell her what happened. Especially when he starts to develop his own feelings for Dan.

Review: This story was quite a surprise I must say. Dan was getting married to Rachel but was in love with Josh. Josh was straight and he had assumed that so was Dan. However when Dan shows up with cold feet, he had decided to help him out. He just wasn’t expecting it to come in a kiss or even sex. Josh is so very confused and a bit angry. Here his best friend is getting married to a knock out and has sex with him.

He is not only confused but feeling very guilty for sleeping with a soon to be married best friend. Dan has always wanted Josh, even to the point he is in love with him. He never told Josh his feelings or the fact that he was gay. One night changes it all. Now all Josh has to do is figure out his feelings. Although the marriage part has him bewildered, confused and guilt speared through him. That is until a night of drinking and sex shows him the truth. The truth is he loves Dan the same way.

I loved the story but I needed more from it. I can see marrying someone to get something you need and even for love. However, this is not what’s happening. In a time where it is getting more common for same-sex people to marry that these guys have to still hide to get what they wanted. It was a good story but just not for me. I needed more from it and didn’t get it.

Blurb: Country music singer, Zane Alexander has struggled to keep his sexuality a secret, but hiding his attraction to their new guitarist, Finn Presswood, is damn near impossible.

On the run from a dangerous ex-lover, Finn has secrets of his own, but his feelings for Zane isn’t one of them.
When the new song they co-wrote leads to a recording contract with a major Nashville label, it becomes clear that their lives are about to change. Unfortunately, secrets are harder to hide in the limelight, so for Zane, fake-dating a famous supermodel seems like the best solution for everyone.

Their dreams are finally within their grasp until Finn’s past catches up, and no matter how much the two men love each other, happiness is never a guarantee.

If good intentions pave the road to hell, then broken neon paves the road to Nashville.

Review: I love romance stories as well as the next person, but this story just had a bit more to it. It has so much potential that I was amazed by it.

I wasn’t too happy with Zane’s past choices and the fact that his friends, coworkers and family seemed to harp about it all the time. His last boyfriend had broadcasted it so much that for three months they were trying to bring their name back up in the music circle. He had tried so hard to hide who he was, that he almost doesn’t go forward with his life. When they needed a guitar player, he had chosen Finn.
Finn was a damn good player but he was green. He wanted to help his brother who was brain-damaged enough that he would have to be watched all the time. He was always getting into trouble. So when he gets the job, he asks for a little more. He asked to have his brother helping load things and do any work they could come up with. What he had not expected was his ex-lover. His ex-lover was dangerous and he is now on the run.

The problem was that they both wanted each other, however since Zane was in the closet so to speak there were more problems arising. He had thought dating a supermodel would help but it was all fake. None of that was real, what was real was his feelings for Finn. Then the dangers come for Finn, now Zane wants to protect what is his.

The danger that came for him was far more dangerous than even he had to admit. The drug cartel, drugs, money, trafficking kidnapped women, and quite a bit of dangers situations. Top that off these two are in love and want it to be more. They have the support of those important to them. Now all they needed was the courage to make it go.

I loved this book. It had everything that I asked for in a story. The perfect story line and an amazing plot just made it even better. There is so much seriousness but a touch of humor although not much. It shows what happens when one gets into the wrong crowd and how hard it is to get out. How the love of a good man can make even the bad better. I can’t wait to check out the rest of Tyler’s books. I would recommend reading this because if you don’t you are missing a story that will show you a world that is a hard one to live in. It will show you just what love can do for you.

Reviewer: Tootsie
Review: An End Has a Start, the 5th and final book, in the Romeo and Julian series, has left me with many feelings. I have grown to love these two guys as if I knew them personally. I have read and re-read each volume more than once and feel very close to them. I wasn’t sure what to anticipate for the big finale. I thought I knew in which direction the story would go. I was wrong, and when I am wrong, I never hesitate to admit it (unless it’s to my husband, of course). The direction Romeo and Julian take just re-emphasized the truth I had already known. Sage Marlowe is a masterful storyteller, who has taken us on an amazing journey, and brings us to a closure that leaves us feeling vindicated and elated with the outcome.

One of the many things that I always enjoy with this author’s writing is when one story ends and the next one begins, we have not lost time. You start where the last book left off never feeling as though you just time-travelled and have to find your way around. In book 4, A Safe Place, we left the guys recuperating at the farmhouse owned by Romeo and a close friend. When I opened book 5, An End Has a Start, I am able to jump right back into the story because they are still at the farm allowing Romeo time to heal from his injuries.

Julian realizes he cannot trust Romeo to sit back quietly and relax, giving himself time to heal. He is always on guard that he will run. He takes measures of his own to secure his patient giving him time for much needed rest and relaxation. Julian wants answers and as Romeo has proven time and again, he is not that reliable relaying what he knows. Trying to be strong and not be swayed by smooth talk and sexy eyes, he wants Romeo to tell him what he knows and stop leaving out the most important parts. Shocked by some of the facts Julian discovers, he should not be surprised by the events unfolding. Romeo always seems to be one step ahead, but Julian has a few surprises up his sleeve, as well, and when the time comes, he just hopes the actions he has taken will pan out.

I shouldn’t have been surprised that Romeo knew all along who was chasing them and where he needed to go to find what everyone seems to want, the treasure. He also knew, or with great certainty, who had killed his parents. He just needed proof that would put the killer away in a nice prison cell, but obtaining that proof was another matter. With time running out, and his close friend in more danger than he was comfortable with, Romeo and Julian work fast to meet the demands the killer has issued. Julian is amazed how well the two of them work together as a team. They have been together long enough that reading each other and knowing the signals create a smooth and efficient operation. Even with the seriousness and urgency of their situation, they still find time for humour and affection.

As it has been the case from day one, their connection and chemistry is strong. Being lovers and expressing that love is something they both need. Whether it is a touch of a finger, holding hands or a kiss on the cheek, they thrive on these intimate points of contact. Making sure the other know they are loved is never held back or in question. Making love, finding what makes the other purr is a beautiful vision that Sage so adequately describes leaving you feeling as if you just witnessed something magical right before your eyes. Romeo is more comfortable and confidant in expressing what he wants and needs from Julian. They both realize that Romeo may pull the strings during the day, but Julian will pull them in the bedroom. Adding toys to their lovemaking only increase the pleasure leaving them exposed, sometimes vulnerable, but definitely sated.

This was an amazing series and an incredible journey. Sage has no trouble grabbing your attention and holding it while taking you through many twists and turns. All we have to do is hold on and enjoy the ride. The ride was bumpy at times, the journey unclear of what was in store. But one thing I know without any doubt is I can trust this author to give me a story that will take root in my heart and stay with me for quite some time. With this being the last story in the series, a lot of questions will be answered. A “face palm” is sure to happen as the ending comes in sight. And, as the saying goes “famous last words”, the author will get his leaving you with a moment of Hmmm, I wonder.

Review: This is book one and most stories need to be read in order.

This story turned out to be better than I expected. It did have a part in it that actually made me hurt for Lin. Ashton mined for gold, trying to save money up so that he could buy a ship. He had dreams that he wanted travel the galaxy. His best friend brings him a sex robot. He figured it would relax his friend and make him less grumpy. It goes pretty well until he found out that Lin had no sexual parts what so ever. He felt disgusted and treated Lin badly.

It had taken him some time to realize how Lin felt. He was slowly turning into a human. Lin was more human than many humans out there were. He had been owned by a master that just wanted to hurt him, to see if he had feelings like humans. He had ordered him without sexual organs so that he would never know what it would be like to find pleasure, just give pleasure. Even though he was becoming human, he would never get to be truly human. That is until Ashton does the unexpected. Lin and Ashton have grown to love one another. You can feel it in this story. You can feel so much coming from this book.

I loved this book and cannot wait to see what else Jan has to read. I was amazed at the feelings that come through with this story. I do wish that it was longer, but it gives me a taste of what the next book will be like. It caught my attention from the moment I opened the book up and kept it all the way to the end. I can’t wait to see what the next story will be like.

And then the world turns upside down, as a devastating earthquake rips everything apart. As Tighe searchers desperately for Scotty, all he can think about and pray for is finding alive the man who’s stolen his heart.

Review: This is part of the Romance on the Go stories. Each one can be read as stand-alone. This story was better than I thought. I loved it although I do wish I knew more, because after the earthquake I am seeing them as homeless.

Tighe was a divorced man, whose wife had taken him for everything. He had confessed to her that he had slept with her brother. He had been hiding in the closet for so long that he never truly wanted to be gay or to be out. However, he really wanted his neighbor Scotty.

Scotty was twenty-five and a surfer. He had wanted his neighbor since he had helped him move in. Things kept heating up around them but until now, they have never made any moves towards their attraction. That is until now. Things are heating up pretty good. They go meet up with Scotty’s friends then have a beach fantasy. Now afterwards Tighe is backing away from Scotty. That is until an earthquake rips it all apart. Tighe knows he has to find the man he is falling for. He has to save his boyfriend.

I loved this story. It comes off so true and believable. One guy, younger and very out in life. And another guy from Texas where it is hard to be who you really are, now somewhere else but still afraid of what would happen if they found out he was gay. Then a natural disaster forces their attraction to come full force at the fear of losing the one they want. This story has so much written in it, in such a short story. I loved it and cannot wait to check out the rest of Elizabeth’s stories. I would recommend reading this story. It has hot sex, sexy men, troublesome past, excitement, and passion.

Snake Charmer

(Cattle Valley 31)

by

Carol Lynne

Sometimes it takes finding an opposite to show us the beauty within ourselves.

When security consultant and ex-mercenary, Gabrielo ‘Snake’ Barbas, thwarts an attack of one of his co-workers, Riley Banks, he takes it upon himself to keep the smaller man safe. His job is made harder when he discovers the attacker is actually Riley’s ex-boyfriend, a ruthless man from a very wealthy and powerful family.

After a night of passion, Snake decides to take Riley far away from Richmond, Virginia to a town in Wyoming for the annual Cattle Valley Days celebration. He should have known that sex with Riley wouldn’t be enough, but he feels he has nothing else to give such a nice guy. Riley is the sexiest man Snake’s ever taken to his bed despite Riley’s claim otherwise.

Riley knows he’s average-looking at best, so why does Snake continue to flatter him? It’s obvious he’s not going to kick Snake out of bed, even after Snake informs him that sex is all he has to give. Why does Snake see him so differently than the rest of the world?

While Riley is busy trying to figure out the man who touches him like no other has before, Snake is busy trying to protect him from a monster in a business suit.

Blurb: They say opposites attract but in the case of a preacher and a man of science, things get downright incendiary. Mark (Pappy) Rafferty is an ex priest recently moved to Apishipa Creek to start his own church in the beauty of the Rockies. Nathan Lee is the smooth talking Atheist doctor of the town’s clinic.

Dayton Binx is a submissive actively searching for a Dom. Travis Walton feels a kinship to the younger man because of their similar backgrounds but soon passes the pain in the neck off to Pappy.

A slip of long-awaited passion between he and Nathan threatens to tear Pappy’s sub from him, but never underestimate a sub on a mission!

With more intrigue, suspense and hot action between sexy men, Apishipa Creek heats up once again as three men find an uncommon bond while two others are ripped apart because of stubborn pride. Can everyone live happily ever after or will those wishing revenge complete what they started and kill those who get in their way?(

Review: This is book three of the Apishipa Creek Series. You can read it as a standalone but would enjoy it better if you read them in order since all characters appear in previous books and you get more details on them.

This is Pappy’s story and introduces a new character Binx. I imagine when you see the word Pappy you think old grey haired man and wonder how that’s gonna work in an erotic romance. Pappy is actual Mark and is a preacher, hence Pappy. He is young, hot and sexy. Pappy was a priest but when he figured out he was gay, he left the church but found there is still need for a preacher, especially for gay believers so he has opened his own church in Apishipa creek in the last book. He has a crush on Nathan, also introduced in the last book, the new doctor in town. Nathan and Pappy only have one thing in common and that’s they are both Doms. They begin an early morning ritual of jogging together.

Travis has taken over manacle a BDSM club in the next town over that all the people in Apishipa Creek and the other surrounding areas frequent for the lifestyle. A new sub shows up and Lin the former owner tells Travis it’s his place to protect him and the boy is trouble. Travis has his hands full with Lonnie, and finally persuades Pappy to give him at least a trial chance.

Wow is this book full of good stuff!! We have hot new characters; get more stuff from all our old favourites such as, Rebel and Jack, and Travis and Lonnie, and Princess Lynn and Mike. There’s lots of suspense as Lonnie goes in search of Roarke and it cause a big friction in his and Travis’s relationship. There are so many twists it will make you whiplash, and man oh man is it hot and sexy.

Rain has a way with erotica that though there is so much sex (hard not to when writing about BDSM and D/s Lifestyles) every scene is sexy, stimulating and yet original and refreshing. There is whipping, bondage and a bit of knife-play and double penetration. But that even is well written, hot, and sexy. I think one of my favourite things is Binx and his bright ideas! I never thought it would happen but I actually fell in love with Binx and he is right up there on my favourite sub list with Rebel and Ethan. I love how this shows submissive as real people even though they like taking care of their Dom’s. Some even hold real jobs. I like a story where things seem more realistic and I’d love to live in Apishipa Creek!

There are new characters introduced and even an old friend for Honky Tonk makes a cameo. (I hope that means we can expect a bit of Carter, hunter and Ethan in an upcoming episode)
Once you start reading, you won’t want to put down until the end. I cried a bit, chewed my nails and held my breath a lot!!

If you like a great erotic story featuring BDSM, fetishes, D/s Lifestyles, suspense, drama, men in uniform, and of course some really hot mansex this is for you!
