Blurb: Sweeter than strawberry, darker than blackberry, better than please.

Son of the Wood God, son of a mortal woman, Myrddin has lived a carefree life for sixty years. Now, with his mother dead, the wilderness that has sustained him is an overflowing well of powers he can no longer control. Sent by his father to seek someone who can help him, the one Myrddin finds is a nameless stranger, whom he calls Kas.

Kas, so named, is still what his nature demands he be. He is Death—its essence and its king…its master, and its open gate. Since the first death that came into this world, he has been alone, essential and solitary—until Myrddin. For his sake, Kas aids in building the Rite of Spring, and in the process learns love…and loneliness.

Between life and death, want and need, there is just enough space for a new beginning. The question is how it continues—and whether it ends.

Review: This book part of a series that I enjoy. However, this book confused me. It hard to tell exactly what was going on. As a result, I was totally lost by the end of it.

The only thing I did understand is that Myrridan meets Kas. Knows he’s what he needs and that Kas had a hard time expressing things in words.

I honestly did not enjoy this book.

Sorry.

Blurb: Jay worked hard to become one of the best attorneys in the state. He loves being able to help others and see lives changed because of what he does. Professionally, he is flying high, personally not so much. Going home to a quiet house is what he thought he wanted, but is it?

Chris grew up on the streets, learning how to survive and take care of his needs. With his faithful companion, Jake, a beautiful dog who was abandoned and left for dead, Chris works to keep them both alive, always putting Jake’s needs before his own. Chris’s biggest fear is having Jake taken from him, and when that becomes a possibility, it’s Jay who steps in to save the day.

The bond formed between the three grows stronger every day, but when it comes time for Chris and Jake to leave, Jay’s not sure he can watch them go.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Story about Chris, homeless man, his dog Jake who he is about to lose and attorney Jay who takes in the dog so Chris can see him. I loved the dog in this story as he seemed dedicated to Chris despite the situation they are in,

Chris struggles to keep him and the dog with food and a safe place to sleep at nights. Hoping against hope that he will not lose the only companion he has. Jay takes them in and becomes attached to both as the story progresses.

It was a struggle for Jay as he fell for them both. I loved the interactions between the two MC’s as they come from different backgrounds but found each other.

It was an o.k. read.

Blurb: Things are not always what they look like.

Adan has been in a catatonic state ever since the pride rescued him from one of Glass’ labs—or at least that’s what everyone thinks, even the doctors. Jared has tried to find a solution for a year, but Adan isn’t getting better.  Jared’s last resource is finding Adan’s mate, and when he finally does, things start changing.

Yanis has been asked to check if he’s Adan’s mate, and when he finds out he is, he’s scared. He wants his mate to be better, but he has no idea how to help. Adan seems to be breaking down, though, so Yanis spends time with him, until something happens.

Adan has locked himself in his own mind, scared of what he’d do if he didn’t. He already hurt two men, and the last thing he wants is a repeat of that, but his mate’s presence by his side is making staying in his mind hard. Still, Adan has every intention of doing just that, but the power he’s been trying to suppress flares out, and Yanis is hit.

When Adan finally comes out of his self-imposed isolation, he’s immediately put to work. Time is running out to find the mole, and Adan helps as well as he can, but will it be enough?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Whitedell Pride Series collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Every once in a while you find an author that can give you a world that would be perfect to live in.  Lievens gives you hot sex, lots of love and tenderness, mixed in with excitement, adventure and lots of dangerous situations. Anywhere from bigots to evil scientist bent on experimenting on shifters to changing the DNA.

They are not only the perfect length for me, but they are so full of detail that it feels like you are right there with them. They not only entertain you but captivate you throughout the whole story. For me once I start reading I can’t move until I find out how they end. Her characters are also very fascinating and unique to me.

Adan had come in a year ago in a catatonic state, or that was what they assumed. So Dom and the others decided to bring in all the single shifters to see if his mate was one of them. These guys are in for more than just one surprise from this sexy little bobcat.

Yanis is his mate and awakens what is deep inside of him that he had been hiding. Something given to him by the scientist, something that scared the living hell out of him.

I would definitely recommend reading this book.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I really enjoyed this story about a down on his luck musician, Devon, who goes to bar to drown his sorrows so to speak. He discovers a community he never knew existed and in the process finds out who he really is.

Eldan runs Céilí.What made his character so great is he was made up of several layers. Not one or two but many. He was intriguing, quirky at times yet serious.

I was amazed at times that Devon did not know who he truly was but at the same time I understood. Both Eldan and Devon seemed so right for each other.

Great read.

The entire story draws you in slowly as the story progresses. It was well written and holds your attention from start to finish.

Reviewer: Prime

Review:  This is a short and sexy read, which also happens to be a free read from Charley Descoteaux. This can be read as a standalone book, completely apart from the main story line of the Buchanan House series, but it such a wonderful glance into the little universe of Buchanan House – named after a potentially gay president.

This is the story of Adam and Silas. They meet each other online and make plans to meet up at Buchanan House for Pride Weekend and hopefully for some hot loving. But the guys get more than they bargained for when romance sparks between them. A lovely story with a satisfying ending, it is just a teaser for the upcoming, full length installment of the Buchanan House series.

(The Third Legacy)
by

R.J. Scott

A hidden past can only mean an uncertain future.

Daniel ‘Danny’ Flynn has made his way through college on athletics scholarships. One more year at university, and as soon as he graduates, a career with his aunt’s real estate agency will be his.

Danny had his hopes set on an alternate path—winning a place on the US gymnastics team. When he doesn’t make the cut, it looks like his future is set in selling houses. He’s buried his past and his lies have kept him sane; he’s not going to let them out now.

Corey Dryden is a journalist onto the story of the year. Four men, one abuser, and all connected to Dallas royalty—Jack and Riley Campbell-Hayes. Corey just needs a way in, and tracking down Daniel is his first step. This story could be award winning exposure for Corey’s career, and he’ll do anything to get what he needs. Can the lies he tells Danny lead to anything but heartbreak?

Because, Danny’s past has to stay hidden, or it could destroy any hope of a future for either of them.

A new story set in the world of Jack and Riley Campbell-Hayes and the Double D Ranch, Texas.

About R.J.

R.J. Scott - avaitar

My goal is to write stories with a heart of romance, a troubled road to reach happiness, and most importantly, that hint of a happily ever after.

I’ve been writing since age six, when I was made to stay in at lunchtime for an infraction involving cookies and a mixing bowl. You can’t tell a six-year-old not to lick the bowl!

I was told to write a story, and two sides of paper about a trapped princess later, a lover of writing was born.

As an avid reader myself, I can be found reading anything from thrillers to sci-fi to horror. However, my first real true love will always be the world of romance. I love my cowboys, bodyguards, firemen, and billionaires (to name a few), and I love to write dramatic and romantic stories of love and passion between them. (Yum.)

With over ninety titles to my name and counting, I’m the author of the award-winning The Christmas Throwaway, which was the All Romance eBooks bestselling title of 2010.

I’m also known for the Texas series, which charts the lives of Riley and Jack, and the Sanctuary series, which follows the work of the Sanctuary Foundation and the people it protects.

Blurb: Hero and criminal. Brute force and subtle charm. Jonathan White and Crow Belcane are polar opposites, but if they want to rescue the man they both love, they’ll have to work together.

After visiting his former lover, Crow knows only one thing: he loves Regis and he will do anything to reclaim him. But before his very eyes, Regis is abducted. Kidnapped by high-end slavers. Only Regis’s infuriating partner, Jonathan—a dangerous vigilante—is willing to help.

To infiltrate the slave ring, Jonathan and Crow disguise themselves as master and pet. As a slave, Crow is pushed to his limit. He’s chained, branded, whipped, and forced to obey Jonathan’s every order. But the longer he spends at Jonathan’s feet, the more natural his disguise begins to feel—and the more he likes it. As much as he hates Jonathan, they make a good team.

Both of them are devoted to Regis. Despite the overwhelming attraction between them, Jonathan is unwilling to betray his partner, and Crow is unwilling to come between them. But once the three of them are together again, all bets are off. With the world against them, they have only each other to cling to.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I actually had to read this twice because at first it came off as a bit wrong to me, but the second time my eyes were more open and I had so much fun with these guys. Although I must admit Crow was about to get on my nerves. Not to mention Regis needs to be smacked quite a bit. Now I can see why Crow was being an ass.

When I first saw the cover to this book I had thought that it was an M/F romance, because the guy really looked like a girl and I was about to put the book back. But then realized who it was and let’s just say things went better after that. Now the blurb just doesn’t do the story justice and was a bit off, however the story was rocking.

Once I started reading, for the second time I came to the conclusion that the characters and plot were well detailed and pretty flush. I loved the bit of humor in it a bit more.

This is one of those stories that will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole book. At first I thought that I was going to have to smack Crow for being such a jerk, but he turned around quite a bit. Crow is a bit insecure in my eyes. He thinks that no one can love him because of the fact that his mom had created him from a crow. However he is definitely wrong about that.

Whereas Regis is the one that I really wanted to smack. Here are two great guys coming to save his ass and he acts like a selfish little boy. It felt like he was just using Crow and basically says as much. He could have been better in this story that is my opinion.

Now Jonathan is in love with both men, and goes out of his way to save Regis. He even tries to deny his feelings for Crow, at least to himself.

Now the buildup was intense and let’s just say hot, but the guys didn’t really go the way I had wanted. Their feelings come out in this story but I felt more for Crow then the others in this one. In this book there was great potential to be a hot story but it doesn’t end the way I felt it should have.

I hope that the next book has the three coming together because damn there is some heat there.

I was expecting more threesome action, but I am afraid that Regis was the downer in this book. I am afraid that I did not connect well with him, so I do hope that the next book fixes that.

I look forward to seeing what goes on later.

Blurb: Angus Conrad (Gus) McRae is a privileged Charlestonian following family tradition and attending the Citadel, harboring big dreams of a military career. With the infamous Hell Week behind him, he quickly realizes being a Knob (a freshman cadet) is just as tough—especially for a man like Gus who must keep his sexuality a secret. Then a sudden dorm reassignment lands him with a roommate in the form of one of the football team’s top players—working-class jock Stewart Adam (Sam) Morley—and life gets increasingly complicated.

Gus can’t imagine a man like Sam as gay, yet there’s something between them—exchanged glances, the occasional innuendo. Sexual tensions rise, leaving them more than friends but less than lovers. Gus and Sam know there’s too much to lose and they must keep their attraction hidden.

If they fail, they risk destroying their hopes and dreams for a prosperous future in a military world that’s not yet ready to accommodate masculine gay men.

ISBN: 978-1-63477-124-5

Product Link: http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=7645

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Knobs (get the dick jokes out of your head now, it’s not that) is the type story that is for people that enjoy a bit of young adult/college and want to mix it with military-style/military school action.

That’s pretty much the book in a nutshell.

The story follows Gus (Angus) and Sam (Stewart), who are new cadets to the prestigious Charleston military academy, the Citadel. For those of us not in the know (mostly those of us who aren’t American), the Citadel is a very real military college.

Sam is going to the Citadel on a full football scholarship as he comes from a very poor single-parent family. He has spent much of his childhood helping his mother raise his younger siblings. Gus is the complete opposite, he is from a rich family – his father and grandfather both attended the Citadel. He is less than enthusiastic about going to the Citadel but is determined to make it work.

The guys make it through their first week alone before a change in room assignment has them as roommates. The guys are like chalk and cheese. It does help that Sam is intent on judging Gus as a rich prick before getting to know him. But things change and epiphanies happen. Being gay, they have to make sure that their secret doesn’t come out to the rest of the school. Sam also needs to get over feelings of being a “charity case”.

This is a really enjoyable story about two guys that need to find themselves as well as work out their relationship in a confining environment where they cannot be themselves. It is full of heart and the characters develop really well throughout the story. Although I would say that there is a lot more room for development. These guys are complex.

I’m not sure if Scotty Cade has more in mind for these guys, but I would read a sequel for Sam and Gus in a heartbeat.

Blurb: When a Shiver’s fed up, no one’s safe.

Koi Pyktis is the last of the Shivers and, lately, he’s been feeling as if the whole world is in love, leaving him the odd Shiver out. Though he has his eyes on Kofi’s friend, Christophe Sidler, he knows he must keep his hands off him. His father’s enemies are out there and they seem hell-bent on starting a war between the Shivers and anyone else they want.

Christophe Sidler has loved Koi Pyktis since the moment he laid eyes on the studly Greek. But he’s fresh from mourning his mother, getting his feet wet in the business world and trying desperately not to put his foot in his mouth around Koi.

However, what will Christophe feel and say when he finds out what Koi really is, and where will Christophe stand in the battle ahead?

https://www.pride-publishing.com/book/koi

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Koi Pyktis, along with his brothers Ciro and Osaki, are other worldly protectors of our race. Call them demi-gods, immortals or Shivers, and Koi is the last. His brothers have met their mates and though they would still come when called if needed, Koi feels the need to handle everything on his own and allow them peace with their partners. While Koi cares more for the human Christophe Sidler than mere friendship, he avoids any attachment for fear that his enemies will go after Christophe, so he continually pushes the man away.

Christophe doesn’t understand why Koi pushes him away. His moods run hot and cold, much like the weather and the random rain storms and typhoon like mood swings. Once Koi, Ciro and Osaki let Christophe in on their secret, things start to make more sense. But an enemy has discovered that the unbeatable Koi has just one weakness, love, and will stop at nothing to destroy that love and bring Koi to his knees.

I’ve been with this series from the start and while I am always anxious to see what’s going to happen to this brotherhood of immortals also known as Shivers, this book was a bit chaotic. There was so much going on and at times, I couldn’t keep up, I got confused and had to skip back several pages to be sure I was in the right persons head. What made it even more confusing was, sometimes I thought I was reading one character, when it was actually another.

The world building though continues to amaze me, this world of immortal men and their human lovers. How their moods affect things like the weather, how fiercely loyal they are and how they love with every fiber of their being. They are passionate creatures and all those emotions really jump off the page while reading. Christophe was just as fierce as his lover was and determined to stand by his side, regardless, and I loved that about him.

Overall, it was an okay read for me. Had it not been so chaotic at times, more stars would have been given. I would still recommend this series to any fans of PNR/Supernatural type reads or those that like stories with a twist on the Olympus, Greek Gods, and Demi-gods trope. Start at the beginning though, the stories will read and flow better that way.

Blurb: Master Saul is captivated by the beautifully submissive Kenneth and the boy’s love of pain. Unfortunately, Kenneth belongs to Master Preston.

It’s 1926 and as one of the founding members of the Hampton Road Club, Master Saul Liebowitz has enjoyed the charms of many willing submissives over the years. One of the newer submissives to the club has captured his attention more than anyone has in a long time. Kenneth is tall, muscular and also seems to have a greater love of pain than most. If only Kenneth didn’t already belong to another Master.

After Kenneth’s Master died years before, he allowed himself to be taken in by the promises of Master Preston. As time has gone by, Preston has become increasingly crueler to the point where Kenneth fears for his life. They’ve recently joined a sadomasochism club and Kenneth can’t help but yearn for the handsome Master the other boys speak so highly of—Master Saul.

Preston takes things too far one night, and when Saul and his good friend, Master Aaron, do some investigating, they realize that Kenneth might be in real danger. Amidst turmoil at the club over whether there should be rules to keep the boys safe and Preston’s play for power, Saul searches for a way to save Kenneth from what he’s sure is a deadly situation.

Both men fight for what they believe to be the right thing. When they find their way to one another, a wonderful new world opens up to them. But there’s one man out there who refuses to let go of the old ways. Kenneth is his property and Master Preston won’t give him up.

Review: This is book two and best read in order.

Ever since his best friend Aaron has found his perfect submissive and love, Saul is feeling lonely. He thinks because of his age he will never find what he desires most. He admires the new submissive, Kenneth and the way he handles pain.  He wishes the man was his, but he is taken by a new member, Preston that he doesn’t like.

Preston is violent and doesn’t allow his subs to call for mercy. He is mean and doesn’t treat them as people. One of the subs flees from him and one of the other submissives notices. After an investigation, Saul discovered that Kenneth is being threatened and held against his will.  He and some of the other Dominates try to come up with a way to free him, but it will cost Saul some secrets he didn’t want to reveal and possibly the Hampton Road Club.

I loved this book. I loved all the characters and liked that we got more of Aaron, Sam, Francesco, Theodore, and Thomas. The plot is better in this book than the first, and the sex is pretty hot. I have the third ready to read! I can’t wait to see whose story is next!

The only thing I wish was more of would be the 1920’s theme. To me, it kind of got lost in this book but having said that…The book was still awesome!

Warning for the squeamish:  There are rape and dubious consent scenes, but Morticia handled with finesse.

If you like BDSM, D’s relationships, Dubious consent, good romance, Older men/younger men, and some scorching hot man-sex you will love this series!

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: An explanation of how things were set into motion at least fifty years before the first book. It was intense with many secrets revealed that added insight to the first book.

Simply riveting and informative. Loved it.
