Aran, an artist, grew up on his grandmother’s tales of the Side-by-Side world. He never expected his knowledge of folklore would aid his boyfriend, Brandon, in an arson investigation, but the snakes that burst into flames when agitated are something he recalls from those childhood stories.

Until Sanctuary, in the shape of the enigmatic Daniel Karnes, gives him a reason to stay alive and offers the possibility of a future free from fear.

Former SEAL Daniel is new to Sanctuary, tasked with watching Brandon, a brilliant geek with way too many secrets. Falling in love with quirky Brandon is easy; now he just has to make sure secrets don’t end up with them both dying.

Reviewer:  Lisa

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

As a reader I have several favorite authors and stories that I collect.  Although I favor paranormal romances, I will say that R.J. Scott is one of my ultimate favorite contemporary writers of all time.  The story or stories are intriguing and fascinating with the way they are told.  The characters all have their own little way of making you connect with them.  They go from being bold to shy, hard, difficult and sometime pretty strange I would say.  There is an amount of danger in their world that will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat.  The lust also seems to be off the charts sometimes, although in my mind, maybe a bit too eager and fast in some cases.  It doesn’t take away from the story though.

This is the final book in this amazing series, and I have to say that I am not really pleased to see that it is coming to an end.  However it did have a great run.  With this I had to go back and read the previous books to remember each character and their place in the story.  Brandon is a very unique type of guy.  He reminds me of a computer himself sometimes.  He sees the world as numbers and patterns.  Even a pattern on a curtain could drive him crazy.  Brandon and his best friends decided to bring down one of the deadliest men, by going undercover.  It had not worked the way they had thought and now Brandon was the only one left alive.  Sanctuary steps in and keeps him and his sister’s safe, but Brandon has other ideas.

Daniel is going to keep Brandon safe, even if it gets him killed.  More than likely it might want to make him commit murder in the end.  He knows Brandon is not being truthful, but damn he does have a fine ass.  He just has to get Brandon to let him in, because well if you really want to know more, read the book.

There are a bit of quirks to this story that will definitely keep your attention.  I also loved the little twists to it.  The ending really caught my attention, wished I knew what type of snake it was.  I had a lot of fun reading this and can’t wait to see what new stories this amazing author has to come. 

I would definitely recommend this book to everyone who loves a bit of suspense, mystery and danger, not to mention sexy men who carry guns.

Fighting off their growing desires and feelings for each other, the two must find the stolen tomes of the previous Mediums. Their search for the books brings them into contact with the mysterious group known as the Blood of Aeon, the group responsible for the death of the Dalrymple family forty years ago, and possible secrets that could destroy their world.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: It’s best to read these books in order. Marcus and Edmond were together in college but due to a misunderstanding they broke up. Now years later the two are tasked with a mission to find missing tomes that are highly important to Aiden.

I really enjoy this series. I hope it continues. So much goes on in this book from dangerous situations to mysteries needing to be solved. I was on the edge of my seat wanting to know who was behind everything and why. 

Marcus and Edmond broke my heart at what had been done to these two and the wasted years they were forced to endure. A couple of times I wanted to smack Marcus upside the head for his stubbornness. 

I am looking forward to reading more in this series as the mystery continues. Great read.

Reviewer: Pixie

Blurb: Duncan McLeish owns a ranch. Unlike most ranches, this one is in the Scottish Highlands. Having inherited a failing farm from his grandfather, he turns it into a successful business. He has friends and he loves his home, but he’s lonely, and not even infrequent trips to Glasgow and Edinburgh slake that thirst to find someone. Then Drew Sinclair walks into his life.

Drew Sinclair is tantalizingly close to getting his clothing brand noticed in the industry. He and his business partner, Joy, create individual dresses, while, on the side, Drew produces a line of men’s lingerie. He visits Scotland to design a bridal gown for his sister, Jenna, who is marrying Duncan’s best friend at Christmas.

Duncan and Drew have nothing except their Highland upbringing in common, but they say opposites attract, and the attraction is immediate. Is this simply a summer fling, or can two men who live such opposite lives miles away from each other find a way to love?

Reader Advisory: This book contains references to homophobia and references to death of a character’s parents.

Review: When Drew meets Duncan he finds the one man who challenges his dreams of making it in the fashion design business, he falls hard for the Scottish cowboy but his life is in London and it’s tearing Drew apart to leave the sexy man behind. Duncan never dreamed that he’d meet a man like Drew, Drew is everything Duncan has secretly wanted but Duncan’s life is with his ranch in the Scottish Highlands and while he longs for Drew there’s no way a relationship could work… is there?

This is a great story that I found intriguing, the idea of a Scottish cowboy was just fascinating and having a fashion designer as his love interest was delicious.

Both Duncan and Drew are great characters; although it took me a short while to warm up to Drew (he was a little brazen at first). Both Duncan and Drew proved to be a match made in heaven, even though they do have a bit of angst as they try to work out what they both wanted and how to get it.

The story is perfectly written with it being a sweet romance with just an added dash of angst, the relationship is fast paced but it felt natural. Duncan and Drew just fit perfectly together making it seem natural for them to fall for each other so quickly.

I enjoyed this story and thought that it was a great read; it’s perfect for a lazy afternoon in the sun where we get a huge dose of romance shot through with hot sex.

Reviewer:  Lisa 

Review:   When I first saw this book I wasn’t too sure if I wanted to give it a chance or not, especially since I have not had a chance to read anything by this author before.  The cover is a bit dark to me, but it turned out that it fit the story perfectly.  It is a romance story, but it is a dark romance with a serious tone to it.  I just wasn’t too sure about the story though.

Dominick was born into a huge mob family, but he decided to take a different route, which made sense because being gay in the mob family usually got you killed.  A few years ago he had save a male prostitute that was one of his uncle’s boys.  At first it was to protect but soon fell into love.  That love ended the moment Rob decided to go out on his own.  Rob had been controlled by Danny and feared Dominick would do the same.  He realized right after leaving that he had made a mistake.  However it was the end of their story.  That is until now, when they ran into each other on the subway.

Rob was in charge at an institute for kids that were criminals.  Dominick’s latest murder leads him right to one of those kids.  The two are thrown back into each other’s lives, but the dangers from the past might still be waiting for them.

As I said above this has a dark and serious tone to it, but the romance is slowly building once more.  It is like a lost love that has been rekindled.  I am still not really sure if I like it personally, but the story is pretty damn good.  It was very entertaining and kept my attention from the start.  I enjoyed reading it and can’t wait to see what book two has going for it. Although I will admit that the title doesn’t do it justice.

Blurb: Ten years ago, lovers and best friends Ivo Toreli and Robert Mackenzie were separated by death.

But sometimes life gives you second chances. Life…and a lot of cybernetic enhancements.

Trust Agent 505 may not remember who he was before he worked security for Trust Insurance, but now his prisoner thinks he knows him. This revolutionary named “Mack,” who has stolen one of Trust’s prized possessions, seems to think Agent 505 is named “Ivo,” someone from his past. Someone he once loved more than anyone on any of the inhabited worlds.

Ivo doesn’t remember any of it, of course. But if he’s going to get Trust’s property back from the revolutionaries, he’s going to have to play along.

And if playing along also means sleeping with a handsome, humorous, and slightly dangerous ex-soldier, all the better, right?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  I have never really been a fan of anything Sci-fi, but this was a pretty damn good book if I must say so.  I hadn’t even taken a look at the blurb, so I had no clue what type of book I picked so imagine my surprise when I started reading it.  It is definitely futuristic and unique, a definite new type of story for me.  

Two young boys, orphaned at a young age find themselves together and bond in a way that many do not.  They grew up together, took care of each other and protected the other with fierceness.  Then they became lovers and decided to never be without the other.  Fighting for what they thought was right, Ivo was killed.  Ten years has gone past and Rob finds out that the man he loved, the man he watched die is in fact very much alive.

Ivo or Agent 505 had no memory of anything other then what he was.  Part man and part machine, but still human.  He has been killed many times but always brought back.  His reward is a drug that basically keeps him under the Trust’s hand.  That is until a man who knows him, shows him a different side of himself… one that he, well your just going to have to read the book.

A very fascinating story and I will now have to go back and read the first book in this series.  It is a very entertaining tale and caught my attention from the very start.  This is more than just a fight for the world, but for each other and the love they once had.  I fell in love with the characters and that dog just made a hit with me. 

I can see myself reading this book more than once, way to go!  I would definitely recommend this book.

Reviewer: Pixie

Blurb: Love is love. But what if the fight for equality gets in the way of building a relationship?

Lorcan Barrett has never considered himself relationship material. After his parents made it perfectly clear they’d never welcome a partner of his into their home, he learned to love his own company and now can’t imagine sharing his life with another. After a single passionate kiss with Eric Kavanagh—the night before he travels to Canada for three months—Lorcan’s no longer sure he wants to be on his own. The problem is, he has no idea what sharing his life with someone else might entail.

Eric Kavanagh grew up in a loving and supportive family and had always assumed he’d end up in a committed relationship. Sure that he’s found the one, Eric doesn’t worry about the fact that Lorcan has no experience when it comes to love and relationships. They are good together, so what could possibly go wrong?

When both men get involved in the marriage equality referendum in Ireland, it appears to bring them even closer together, until Lorcan’s insecurities get the upper hand and he shuts Eric out. Will the fight for a Yes vote cost them their relationship, or will they be able to find a balance between the love they share and the need for equality?

Purchase Link: https://www.pride-publishing.com/book/equality

Review: This book is part of a series and is best enjoy read in order.

Lorcan never really thought he’d ever have a relationship, while his parents might begrudgingly accept him as gay they made it perfectly clear that they would never accept any man that he was with, so he’s closed himself off. But when Eric came along Lorcan’s feelings blossom and now Lorcan eagerly awaits Eric’s return from Canada.

Eric has always been accepted by his family and his family welcome Lorcan with open arms, but Eric knows that something is gnawing at Lorcan and as they get involved in the marriage equality referendum in Ireland Lorcan finally begins to open up about his family.

This is a great story about two men with different experiences of family trying to find a balance in their relationship, while seeking equality from not only a country but from family as well.

Eric is the perfect boyfriend, he’s confident and secure in his place in the world and he knows what he wants… and he wants Lorcan. Lorcan has his share of worries; he has never had a relationship but Eric calls to him. Lorcan struggles to share his feelings with Eric, and he longs for acceptance from his family.  

This story is about so much more than a relationship between two men, it’s also about the relationships that they have with their families as well. Because while Eric’s family are fully supportive Lorcan’s are far from it. We see Lorcan worry and angst about his family’s reaction to his having someone in his life, his gran turns out to be an angel and his sister and brothers supportive but his parents; well they are another matter completely.

Lorcan has a lot of internal struggle; it begins to test his relationship with Eric especially when he begins to pull away from Eric. Eric tries to be understanding and he tries to remember that this is Lorcan’s first relationship and he’s experiencing everything relationship for the first time.

This is a wonderfully written story, while Eric and Lorcan’s relationship does have its moments of tension it’s Lorcan and his family problems that draws the focus. We get an amazing feeling of realness as Lorcan struggles; we get the pure frustration that just pores off him as he just wants what everyone ‘hetero’ has… just to be treated the same as everyone else. Equality.

I recommend this to those who love characters who have struggles, who adore lovely couples just fitting together, who cheer for equality, and those that love a wonderful ending.
