No Master

(Bounty 03)
by

Christine d’Abo

No man in the galaxy inspires more fear than Korbin, the Admiral of the Black. His life as leader of the biggest pirate band in space leaves little room for trust, so when Korbin’s second-in-command disappears without a trace, he suspects the worst.

Zain Strand has left his life as a sex slave behind and risen within the pirate ranks. But he abandons it all to rescue an old friend from recapture by the slavers—even if that means a suicidal confrontation with his old master. He doesn’t expect Korbin’s arrival, doesn’t want Korbin’s help . . . but Korbin gives Zain no choice.

Posing as master and slave to infiltrate a slave auction, Korbin and Zain embark on a journey of lust that rapidly reveals their deeper feelings. When Zain’s old master discovers their ruse, Korbin must do everything in his power to save both their lives and their newfound love.

Publisher’s note: While books #1 and #2 in the Bounty series should be read in order, this book stands alone and can be read without the first two.

This title is an edited second edition, previously published in 2011.

Bert Cooper’s life used to be great, until his sister turned out to be a traitor. Now Bert feels the whole pack looks on him with doubt and suspicion.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Paul is a little mouse shifter who is in love with his choirmaster. However he stands true to his creature, he is too afraid to let Cale know. So he spies in his animal form… that is until he is caught. When Cale brings him home with him, he is determined to stay as a pet. That is until Cale tells him his secret desires.

This one was absolutely adorable and so damn cute. I had a lot of fun reading this and would hope that the author might someday make this a bit longer. Mice shifters are so damn unique that you don’t see them a lot.

I enjoyed reading Quiet As A Mouse and would definitely recommend it.

Music journalist Bryan Gallagher’s life has completely changed in an unexpected way. Not only has he snagged a dream assignment as the memoirist to alternative music’s rock superstar Aubrey King, but he’s also promised to give the beautiful and enigmatic musician a chance for them to forge a relationship. It’s all very overwhelming for Bryan since, up until he spent a sexually charged day and night with Aubrey, Bryan has never even dreamed of being with a man.

Aubrey is completely smitten with the boyishly handsome, young rock writer, Bryan. After their instant spark grows into something more, Aubrey is desperate to keep Bryan by his side for always. He’s promised Bryan that their love is for real, that Bryan isn’t simply one of his rock star conquests.

Their road isn’t an easy one, though. Despite their deepening bond and growing need for each other, other factors intrude. Neither Aubrey nor Bryan is ready to come out, and their relationship needs to remain a carefully guarded secret. In addition, Aubrey has to answer to the demands of his profession and Bryan has to traverse the shifting waters between his personal and business relationship with his famous lover.

Then a secret is revealed and everything in their joint world implodes. When a love is so strong that two men can barely take a breath without thinking of the other, will that be enough to bridge the loss of trust? The only way they can rock their love forever is if Aubrey can reach Bryan before it’s too late.

Time Lost

(Out of Time 02)
by

C.B. Lewis

What began with a dead intruder and a missing scientist quickly becomes the most perplexing case of Detective Inspector Jacob Ofori’s career. Nothing about it makes sense, from the incredibly advanced technology found on the intruder to the scientist’s mysterious workplace, the Temporal Research Institute. Jacob’s gut tells him the TRI is hiding something, and the questions keep piling up. Who would abduct Sanders; what is the strange gate in his basement laboratory; and how does it connect to similar gates in the TRI?

TRI engineer Kit Rafferty only wanted one night with the sexy, older policeman, but Kit’s mouth tends to run away with him when he gets excited, and nothing gets him more excited that cutting-edge tech—like the intruder’s cybernetic eye. Suddenly Kit is pulled into the investigation—and into a relationship that could jeopardize both of their lives. Kit hates lying to Jacob, but he cannot reveal what really goes on at the TRI—time travel. Faced with time-jumping criminals but unable to share that knowledge with Jacob, Kit turns to a man who knows time travel firsthand: Janos Nagy.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: The first thing that caught my eye with this story was the title and then I saw the cover and I knew that I wanted to see what it was about. Then I took a look at the blurb and had to grab it. This author is new to me, so I was a bit leery of reading it though. However I am so damn glad that I took a chance, because this story rocked.

A few years ago Cameron had left NCIS after an innocent man died. He blamed himself for the man’s death. He had been an innocent man who just happened to be gay, but his Cameron’s partner was a homophobic asshat that pushed it. After that Cameron knew he no longer wanted to be in the Navy. He had not only quit his job but came out to his family. His father deserted him, but his sister stayed. However sometimes he wished she hadn’t, especially when she set him up on blind dates.

Cameron had found the body of a woman whose cat he babysits for. If that wasn’t bad enough, the sheriff was a jerk. Now guess who his blind date was. You guessed it none other than the sheriff himself. So here was a sheriff who at first doesn’t seem to know how to find a killer, to ending up going on a blind date with Cameron. Cameron owns a cat specialty shop and Jake has two dogs, sounds pretty good to me.

Now one would think that these two definitely don’t have anything in common, but it would seem that for them it is the opposite. It takes one date to realize they have something good and that they seem to make a perfect team when it comes to killers.

I have got to say that these two were the best characters I have come across in a long time. They are fully developed and there is so much detail that you feel like you know them from the start. The story is one of the best mysteries I have read in a while. It not only has the serious tone to it, but this story has so much humor in it that made it rock even more.

I hope that the author will turn this into a series with Jake and Cam the main characters in some future mysteries. I had so much fun with this and can’t wait to see what other stories this amazing author has out there.

More Beautiful Than A Unicorn by Bell Ellis

Bell Ellis - More Beautiful Than a Unicorn CoverTitle: More Beautiful Than a Unicorn

Series: Dreamspinner 2016 Daily Dose: Walk on the Wild Side

Length: Short Story (38 Pages)

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥ 2.5 Hearts

Blurb: Tobias is a twenty-five-year-old virgin, bored with his life, and unsatisfied with how average and unremarkable he is—until he sees a silver unicorn. When the beautiful creature begins appearing to him regularly, Tobias doesn’t know if it’s a cruel joke or some form of mental illness. What interest could the unicorn have in someone like him? Searching for it in a park at night leads to an attack on Tobias, but he’s rescued by a handsome and mysterious man called Amar. Something about the man calls to Tobias, and suddenly his life feels a lot less ordinary and a lot less lonely. But fate can be harsh, and the biggest challenge to Tobias and Amar’s relationship has yet to reveal itself.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Tobias is one of those young men who is a chosen virgin. He is twenty-five years old and has a good life. Only a virgin can see a unicorn in his true self. So when he sees Amar he is shocked but accepting. Then Amar is in trouble and Tobias must save the man he has come to fall in love with.

Now this starts out pretty good, but I have to say that it gets pretty creepy. I didn’t much care for the ending at all. I think if it had been told in a better light that it would have made a hit for me. I enjoyed the characters quite a bit but the story not so much. I was glad that these two found each other though.

I would recommend it.

Blurb: At twenty-nine, Mark is lonely and unhappy. With his teaching degree, he never expected to be scraping by at a dead-end job in a bookstore. So when he’s given the opportunity to do the work he’s always dreamed of, he jumps on it.

But there’s a catch. Mark has just agreed to spend the summer teaching a recalcitrant student at a lonely manor outside the most haunted village in the UK. It doesn’t take Mark long to figure out there’s something strange, really strange, about Thomas, his host and the father of his pupil. They say the village changes people, and it turns out Thomas is living proof. Now Mark has to decide if he should run like hell or stay and become part of the family.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Mark has a teaching degree, but is stuck working in a bookstore. It is not the job that he wants to do, so when he is offered a job he jumps at it. Staying in the village however changes you. His new employer is a shock to him, but a rather nice one. He is to teach his daughter. Then he finds out Thomas’s secret.

This was a very unique little story that I would have never thought possible. When I saw the title I was not thinking of what it truly meant, but I am not saying it was bad just different.

The characters were quite frankly enjoyable but the story was just a tad bit weird. This is a shifter story that you would have never heard of before. You have a young student who is not all that friendly but if you look down deep you can tell her heartache. An employer whose heart is on his sleeve but fear is there also. And a teacher who just wants to love. And a location that should never be seen after dark.

I would recommend it.
