Swift for the Sun

by

Karen Bovenmyer

Benjamin Lector imagines himself a smuggler, a gun runner, and an all-around scoundrel. A preacher’s son turned criminal, first and foremost, he is a survivor.

When Benjamin is shipwrecked on Dread Island, fortune sends an unlikely savior—a blond savage who is everything Benjamin didn’t know he needed. Falling in love with Sun is easy. But pirates have come looking for the remains of Benjamin’s cargo, and they find their former slave, Sun, instead.

Held captive by the pirates, Benjamin learns the depths of Sun’s past and the horrors he endured and was forced to perpetrate. Together, they must not only escape, but prevent a shipment of weapons from making its way to rebellious colonists. Benjamin is determined to save the man he loves and ensure that a peaceful future together is never threatened again. To succeed might require the unthinkable—an altruistic sacrifice.

Release date: 27th March 2017

Genre: Vampires, Paranormal

Length: Novel (284 pages)

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (December 30, 2016)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Blurb: When young Danny Crawford’s father and a priest conspire to subject him to conversion therapy, Danny only sees one way out. But little does Danny know he’ll soon have a sentinel watching from the darkness, a guardian angel in the most unlikely form imaginable.

Damien, a vampire, is inexplicably moved by Danny’s plight. He takes it upon himself to make sure Danny’s father and the priest can never hurt him again, giving Danny a chance at a normal life. As Danny grows up, Damien struggles to keep the boy—and later the young man—from harm. He does not dare go any further, no matter how much he wants to. To do so would ruin everything he’s tried to do for Danny. He doesn’t realize that as Danny embarks on a successful modeling career and begins dating, Danny feels empty, longing for something—or someone—just beyond his reach: a shadow, a presence he despairingly believes forever lost to him. 

When brutality and violence threaten Danny again, Damien must make a decision—risk revealing himself to Danny, or leave Danny to his fate..

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Damien, a vampire, was turned while out one night while leaving the movie theater. He is arrogant, cruel at times and seems only to care about himself. After he was turned he had to learn everything himself as his maker left after the bite. During one of his night hunts, he meets Danny in a hospital. This meeting would change him forever.

Danny is sweet, shy, caring and kind. Unfortunately his father is a man’s man and does not tolerate a lot of things. When it comes out that Danny is gay all hell breaks loose in more ways than one. At the end of his rope with nowhere to turn Danny tries to kill himself.

I did not know quite what to expect when I started reading this story but I’m glad I did. Danny’s story was heart-breaking. I was so angry at so many characters throughout that had hurt him in some way that I wanted to harm them myself. I hated his father Frank. He seemed like a real piece of work.

Damien was the one who transformed the most as the story progressed. His back story shocked me. It seemed to me these two needed each other in ways the other didn’t know. I was glad Damien took it upon himself to make sure the ones who did physical harm to Danny paid for it. I really liked the interactions between Damien and Danny. I liked even more that even though he had feelings for him, Damien “left”, he was still around but Danny never saw him, to let Danny live his life until he was older.

The religious aspect of the book had me upset at times as I’m not overly religious myself. Yes I believe in God, Christ and the Devil but what made me mad is Monohan seemed to be evil incarnate. He was in cahoots with Frank about keeping money for himself, sending kids to conversion therapy to change them not to mention what the asshat did to Damien when he was still a human and in the church. He never should have been in any type of position with that kind of power over others. It made me think about all the times I’ve heard of various church people in trouble with the law for doing something despicable in the news yet nothing being done except the church paying off the families to keep it all quiet.

But aside from that the story was an amazing journey of two men who find each other when they need it the most and watching them overcome any obstacles thrown in their way and persevere. I absolutely loved it and highly recommend it. I will warn people there is mention of rape in this story.

(Perchance to Dream 07)
by

Aaron’s been living in what his friend Howie calls a sexual desert. But an oasis appears on the horizon when Paul, a divorced electrician with a five-year-old daughter named Sam, moves in next door. He’s a country boy from northern Australia, and although he’s never been with a guy before, he has an impression that anything goes in the city. They find that the ordinary things in life—books, footie in the park, looking after Sam—lead them into an unlikely relationship.

But as their relationship slowly deepens, with Aaron spending time on Paul’s family’s cattle station, it becomes clear that Paul might have a harder time leaving the country behind. To him, happiness means a conventional life—including a mother for Sam. Being with his old friends convinces him he’s on the wrong path with Aaron, and he starts a relationship with a girl from his hometown. If he cannot find the courage to go after what he truly needs, he and Aaron will become nothing more than awkward neighbours.

Countermind

by

In a postprivacy future, secrets are illegal and all communication is supervised. Telepaths are registered and recruited by a government with no qualms about invading the minds of its citizens. Fugitive psychics are hunted by the Bureau of Counterpsychic Affairs, or Countermind.

Countermind agent Jack Smith is hunting him through the twisted underbelly of Hong Kong.

But Alan possesses a secret so dangerous and profound it will not only shake Smith’s loyalties, but the foundations of their society.

And Alan isn’t the only one on the run. Rogue psychic Arissa binti Noor escapes Countermind, in search of brilliant game designer Feng Huang. She hopes that together, they can destroy the government’s intrusive Senex monitoring system.

Their goals seem at odds, and their lives are destined to collide. When they do, three very different people must question their alliances and their future, because everything is about to change.

White Out

(Seasons of Love 01)
by

Elyse Springer

Noah Landers wakes up one day with a headache and no memory of where—or who—he is. Jason, the man taking care of him, tries to fill in some of the blanks: they’re in a cabin in Colorado on vacation, and Noah slipped on ice and hit his head. But even with amnesia, Noah knows Jason is leaving out something important.

Jason O’Reilly is sexy as hell, treats Noah like he’s precious, and seems determined to make this the romantic getaway they’d apparently dreamed of together. But Noah’s more concerned that he’s trapped alone with Jason in the middle of a blizzard while his slowly returning memories bring hints of secrets and betrayal.

Noah’s not sure what’s the truth and what’s a lie.  But as he learns who he is—and who Jason is to him—he’s forced to reevaluate everything he believes about himself, about loyalty . . . and about love.

Nature’s call of desire among golden fields and intoxicating red-lipped poppies seems to proclaim a path to love and healing in southern France. Yet Peter, an American university student struggling with self-doubt following a failed love affair, is determined never to be hurt again. While on a vacation with his widowed mother, Peter is smitten by Gaston, a handsome local baker. Gaston, less bold than Peter, is drawn to Peter as well but fearful of the loss of family esteem—particularly the respect of his cousin Mario, who looks up to Gaston. Their friendship grows into more as Peter continues to visit the bakery, but their increasing intimacy does not go unnoticed. The road to fulfillment becomes increasingly obscured, and internal doubts and external events spiral out of control. The arrival of a handsome stranger, suspicions of murder, and the threat of harm might spell the end of more than just their relationship.

Flight Partners

by

Artemis Fay

Can a romance that began a mile high make a smooth landing?

When a charming stranger soothes Andy MacKinnon’s fear of flight, it doesn’t take much before the two are snuggling at 40,000 feet.

Too bad that sexy guy turns out to be Andy’s new coworker, Kenneth Ohno. 

Oh no, indeed.

As two expats in Japan teaching at the same school, not only will they work together, they’ll share a small apartment. It’s get along or quit.

After the explosive chemistry of their first meeting, Andy wastes no time in laying down the rules. A relationship is off the table. They aren’t even going to be friends—coworkers is enough to manage for two twenty-somethings who can’t seem to keep their hands off each other.

But it isn’t long before their living arrangements hit turbulence. Kenneth isn’t the first roommate Andy’s fallen for, and the last relationship ended in a nosedive. Can Andy and Kenneth make a smooth landing? 

Or will work and play get mixed up one time too many?

David James is smart, successful, handsome… and alone. After the death of his lover, Kyle, from cancer, he buried himself in his law practice and the gym. At forty-eight, he is haunted by his memories and walled off from the world. When David injures himself working out, he’s assigned to Brandon Smith for physical therapy. The vibrant young therapist is attracted to David and realizes he needs a hand to get back into dating. What begins as a practice coffee date escalates to friendship, passion, and maybe something more, as they navigate a new relationship in Washington, DC, and the gay mecca of Provincetown.

But David remains trapped behind the barrier of fear and guilt. Will he remain loyal to Kyle’s memory if he moves on? Can he and Brandon manage a twenty-two-year age gap? Brandon thinks he understands David’s concerns, and for him, the answer to those questions is yes. He wants to be with David, and he believes he can overcome David’s barriers. But Brandon fails to account for the world’s reaction to a handsome young man attached to an older, wealthy lover. David’s memories, Brandon’s pride, and an unexpected tragedy might cost them something very special.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  This is a new author for me so I was a bit leery of reading his work.  Never knowing what I am going to read is not my idea of fun.  However I found this story intriguing.  It was a bit slow on the up take but once it evens out, was at a pretty good pace 

Now for the title, all I can say was that it was creepy to say the least.  I was not a fan of the name to say the least.  Dominic finds out that his neighbor’s son was in the hospital for a drug overdose, it sent Dom into finding out what happened.  It is said that they just don’t know if it was a suicide or homicide.  However it also gives him a chance at seeing Jonathan, his boyfriend.  Now after the trip to the hospital and that particular talk, the story starts to speed up in pace which is a blessing to me.   

Now the characters were a bit non-descriptive and too much like everyone else.  Dom himself doesn’t stand out like he should.  He doesn’t even come off as an actual detective or investigator to me which makes it seem strange for him to actually be doing an investigating.  Now his relationship with Jonathan is dry and un-inspiring to me.  I don’t care for open relationships and never will so that lost points with me.  Plus Dom thought he couldn’t do any better than his boyfriend, and that was another loss.  He doesn’t really stand out and I had trouble connecting.

Now the whole story was dry, a bit boring and not as thought out as it should have been.  There was just too much missing for me to get into.  I seemed to not be able to connect with the story what so ever, other than the humorous parts.  What happened to the bad guys after all, I mean there is no ending to that part.  Now the story had some great potential but failed somehow.  I hate to say it but had this been a movie it would have rated pretty good but as a book it will take some getting used to it.  For me however I am afraid that this book was not for me.

Blank Spaces

(Toronto Connections 01)
by

Cass Lennox

Absence is as crucial as presence.

The decision to stop dating has made Vaughn Hargrave’s life infinitely simpler: he has friends, an excellent wardrobe, and a job in the industry he loves. That’s all he really needs, especially since sex isn’t his forte anyway and no one else seems interested in a purely romantic connection. But when a piece is stolen from his art gallery and insurance investigator Jonah Sondern shows up, Vaughn finds himself struggling with that decision.

Jonah wants his men like his coffee: hot, intense, and daily. But Vaughn seems to be the one gay guy in Toronto who doesn’t do hookups, which is all Jonah can offer. No way can Jonah give Vaughn what he really wants, not when Jonah barely understands what love is.

When another painting goes missing, tension ramps up both on and off the clock. Vaughn and Jonah find themselves grappling not just with stolen art, but with their own differences. Because a guy who wants nothing but romance and a guy who wants nothing but sex will never work—right? Not unless they find a way to fill in the spaces between them.

In From The Cold

(A Robert Flynn Novel 01)
by

J.T. Rogers

Robert Flynn abandoned a sterling military career when his best friend and fellow soldier, Wesley Pike, died under his command. More than a decade later, Flynn’s quiet life is disturbed by the troubles of a fledgling CIA and Alexander Grant, a flashy agent with a lot to prove. As the space race between the United States and the Soviets heats up and the body count rises, the two men fight to find common ground. Grant knows Flynn believes in the cause, but all Flynn sees is the opportunity to fail someone like he failed Wes. An attack by a Soviet agent spurs Flynn to action and a reluctant association with the agency, and tilts Flynn’s world on its axis with a shocking discovery: Wesley Pike may be alive and operating as a Soviet assassin.

With Grant to bankroll the operation, his superiors looking the other way, and Flynn’s hard-earned peace officially forfeit, Flynn reunites his old team with the singular goal of finding Wes. But they get more than they bargained for—Wes is amnesiac and dangerous, brainwashed into becoming the perfect weapon. Flynn struggles to reach his friend, lead his team, and navigate his charged relationship with Grant—something neither of them expected and aren’t sure how to parse—while coming to grips with his long-buried feelings for Wes.
