Gabriel

(Order of the Black Knights 05)
by

R.K. Staunton

Gabriel Ingram is running from his past. It’s common knowledge at the college where he teaches that he’s a former CIA technical analyst, but no one knows the things he really did—or about the rage and bloodlust that are his constant companions. He’s holding on to his normal life with both hands, but he knows someday he’ll lose his grip.

Lucas Craig is a social worker studying to become a family therapist. For reasons Lucas can’t understand, the normally reclusive Professor Ingram takes an interest in him, and Lucas secretly hopes their friendship might become more.

Then Eric, Lucas’s roommate, disappears. Lucas is frantic. The police are no help. With nowhere else to turn, Lucas begs Gabriel for his expertise.

What starts as a simple errand to help a friend becomes a journey into a violent world of gangs and human trafficking—one that will bring Gabriel face-to-face with the forces intent on stealing his soul. But Lucas might be the one who can save him—if Gabriel can get them out alive.

Release date: 21st April 2017

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  Jackie Keswick is a new author for me, and I usually don’t pick new authors for the reason of having no clue what their writing is going to be like.  Over the years I have come to have many authors that I have loved and have been known to be pretty picky on what I read.  Now I will say that if I was just choosing a book by its cover, then this would have been the last book I picked up.  The cover is just down right creepy to me, however that is just me.  The title didn’t really do it for me either, but I will tell you that the name of the series was what caught me enough to take a look at the blurb.  It was the attraction of danger that really made me want to give it a look.

Now here you have to very sexy men who so have the hots for each other, and avoid the temptation of giving in.  However there are several factors that prove to be these two sexy men’s undoing.  Explosions, fires, bombs, danger, and hot lust well you get the picture.  Now I have never really been a fan of friends to lover’s romance, but this one makes it a bit hard to ignore.  The chemistry these two have is off the charts.  To top it off it is a mystery and suspense that has me taking a major look at it.  

Joel and Kieran have been friends from the first day he started working.  Now these guys go in and save the day for many, such as rescuing those who are being held hostage or have been kidnapped.  For them they just hit it off, but had not given in to the fire burning inside of them for each other.  Now if you really want to know the juicy details of these two, well pick up this book.

Now I do admit that the characters were hot, but really didn’t catch me as they should have though.  It is more of a telling type of story and not a lot of showing, which did suck for me.  I couldn’t see them in my head to really get a good feel for them though. The sex was minimal in the story, and the first book is more about the details of what this company is about and so forth.  It also felt like the author did throw in certain parts to keep the attention of the reader, and that is not always a good thing.  Such as the fact that for a small story it has way to much going on and the actual romance was slow building.  What is with the mirrors, well if you read you will see why I asked the question, just a different type of kink.  Parts of the story go at a pretty good pace, and then there are others where it slows down too much for me. 

The ending also needed some work to it, let’s just say it just stops and leaves you with questions.  Other than my issues with the story, I still enjoyed it quite a bit.  Just needs a bit of extra tender care to make it a higher rocking book for me.

In Pale as a Ghost, Duncan’s on the trail of a serial killer who may not be human, while also trying to move on in his dating life. In Animal Instinct, someone is using the skull of a powerful wizard—Gina’s father—to control animals and attack young Ashton Marsh. In The Scarlet Tide, Duncan’s latest case leads him to Chicago and a band whose members are all vampires. And in Dead End, Robbie’s cousin Jason has moved into a house that’s haunted by a serial killer, and Gina’s on the run from witch-hunters. Through it all, Duncan must solve the case and balance a complicated personal life.

Review:

Stephen Osborne - Pale as a Ghost CoverPale as a Ghost – Duncan Andrews Thrillers # 1 Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Pale as a Ghost stars private detective Duncan Andrews and his faithful zombie dog, Daisy, his best friend Gina, who is a witch and his boyfriend’s ghost, Robbie, who was killed ten years prior. I liked the story. It flowed smoothly with some humor thrown in. Duncan is able to see, hear and communicate with ghosts hence his ability to see his dead boyfriend. Makes for dating non-existent. He is lonely and wants companionship when he meets Nick. 

The cases he takes on are both complex and simple. Find a missing woman and determine who is killing women. The second case takes on a disturbing vibe as he discovers the person is not actually human. This person is copying the jack the ripper murders once every one hundred years. There is plenty of action, suspense and drama to be had throughout this story. I liked the flow of the book. Very well detailed with a hint of more to come.

Stephen Osborne - Animal Instinct CoverAnimal Instinct – Duncan Andrews Thrillers # 2 Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Duncan is on the hunt for a stolen skull belonging to a powerful warlock. This skull gifts the human unimaginable powers while at the same time changing them. Several deaths and many attacks later Duncan’s life is at stake to find the culprit. 

A fantastic story with plenty of action, mystery and suspense. I loved the way Duncan left no stone unturned in his quest to find the skull. A television psychic causes Robbie and Duncan problems as well by making Robbie think it’s better for him to move on. I loved it. 

Stephen Osborne - The Scarlet Tide CoverThe Scarlet Tide – Duncan Andrews Thrillers # 3 Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

In this exciting addition to the series Duncan is on the case of finding a boyfriend who is acting strange only to discover he’s a vampire. Doing away with a band of vampires is not easy. Duncan gets a shock as the leader Dominic bites him. Amid all this is Nick’s request to Gina to allow him to see ghosts and Robbie’s plans to leave on New Year’s. 

I liked this story. Though I do have to say it is getting irritating about the way Robbie and Duncan keep bringing up and pondering Robbie leaving. Either leave or stay already. Make up your minds and stick with the decision.

Stephen Osborne - Dead End CoverDead End – Duncan Andrews Thrillers # 4 Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Duncan Andrews is on the case of an evil ghost hell-bent on destroying lives. Moore was a doctor but also a serial killer. He took the lives of seven young men then his own life. In death he is the embodiment of pure evil. With the help of his team Duncan will attempt to get rid of the ghosts haunting Jason’s, Robbie’s cousin, house. 

In this book a lot is going on. A witch hunting group has set sights on Gina for elimination, an incubi is on the loose, Nick has settled into his ghost helping, Duncan and Robbie come to terms with their relationship. I liked all the new twists and turns as they kept the story interesting and intriguing.

Overall:

All in all, this bundle was absolutely awesome. Each book gives the reader an insight into Duncan and Robbie’s lives. The cases bring about a closeness with each other as they work together to solve each one. The paranormal characters were different and fresh for each story and drew the reader in. Demons, incubi, ghosts, witches, hunters, vampires and a zombie dog made for fantastic well written reads. I truly loved them and highly recommend each one.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I chose this book because I definitely thought it was a mystery, and it was however I wasn’t really paying attention to the werewolf part to much.  So you can imagine my surprise when I started reading it.  I have read a couple of books by this author, and have to say that he has a top notch imagination, and wonderful for us because that imagination gives us a good book. Although I do admit, this one leaves me on the edge. I can’t decide if I liked it or if I hated it.

Thad is a sweet young man who gives him time getting things together for ones who have AIDS.  He has a gentle soul and a big heart.  When Thad walks into the Blue Moon Cafe, his heart starts beating and his hands start sweating.  He has found the man of his dreams.  That man of his dreams has a secret that is deadly though.

Sam is one hell of a sexy Sicilian.  He can cook like no man can.  One night with Thad, and he wants more but his family is a very difficult family.  Then the murders of gay men start happening, and Thad’s best friend found the answer.  Now Sam’s disappearance around the full moon just so happens to be the same time as the murders.  Thad is going to find out what is going on, and if you want to know more then read the book.

Now I have to admit that I am more romance and paranormal, then creepy paranormal.  Also I am stuck with the werewolf in the city idea, which for most would be odd.  Werewolves and the city just don’t mix.  One would think that they would pick more Montana, Wyoming and even Alaska, then a city in Washington.  So it seemed to stick with me throughout the book.  Then there was the way they are together, and sudden love just doesn’t work for me.  I don’t know, the whole book just felt rushed and didn’t come together like I wanted it to.  Now, even though those are my feelings on the book, it is well written with some juicy parts in it. 

The action pack, suspenseful story mixed in with a romance is just a part of what is in this book.

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 4 ½ Hearts

Blurb: US Marshal Jaeger Tripp is assigned to the Federal Witness Protection Program. The hurt and destruction he’s seen—along with protecting criminals who are only cooperating with the authorities to keep themselves out of jail—have left him with a bleak and jaded view of both life and people. His current assignment is Wren O’Riley, a computer wizard who witnessed a high-profile cartel hit.

To Jaeger, Wren is the same as any other job. He must protect him long enough to get him to testify at trial, and his personal feelings have no place in his work and must be set aside. But that’s easier said than done. On the run and fighting for their lives, Jaeger and Wren can’t help but grow closer. And Jaeger can’t help seeing beyond Wren’s nerdy exterior to a man who might be just what Jaeger needs to settle his soul and capture his heart—if they survive long enough to get that chance.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: We have another of Moriel’s Order of the Black Knights in this installment. US Marshal Jaeger Tripp is tough, knows his assignments and carries them out. Lately he is feeling like something is missing. His current assignment is to protect a witness and get him to trial. He hates it. He does not like protecting those he feels is a criminal.

Wren is more than he appears. He is also innocent unlike his family. What has been put in motion is so devious that it blew my mind when it all came to light.

I was impressed with the lengths and details the story went to. Well written and action packed with danger and suspense all throughout. This story will have you on the edge of your seat. 

Great installment to an already good series.

Blurb: Special Agent John Flynn is everything Jerry Parker is not: dangerously handsome, coolly charismatic, and respected by his peers. Special Agent Parker is dedicated and meticulous, but his abrasive personality has given him a reputation for being difficult. When new information on a cold case appears, Parker is assigned to work with Flynn, and the sparks fly as their investigative styles clash. Contact with a strange artifact changes everything when it bestows unusual and unpredictable powers on Flynn… and the two men must learn to trust each other before a killer strikes again.

First Edition published by Dreamspinner Press, 2010.

Purchase Link: https://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/books/unspeakable-words-by-sarah-madison-8275-b

Review: This story is a 2nd Edition and has been expanded to novel length.

Jerry Parker is used to being passed from pillar to post, going from case to case where he’s needed, but that doesn’t mean that he’s not silently seething with bitter resentment about being used for his expertise and then shipped off to a new case before an arrest is even made. John Flynn is the golden boy of the FBI his solve rate is through the roof and his easy charm and good looks means everyone loves working with him, but his past is what drives him and he’s haunted by that past.

Jerry and John are thrown together when a prospective witness comes forward on a serial killer case, The Grimm Fairy Tales Killer, but it leads to much more than that when the witness seems to be the killer’s new victim and a strange artifact complicates their lives.  

Sarah Madison couldn’t have given us two characters who are so different that they should be the anathema of each other, but who actually make a tenuous connection that works for them. Their circumstances leads to a fascinating story that would have been brilliant just from the case and their slowly developing relationship, but add in the unusual paranormal aspects and holy hell it takes it to another level altogether! 

The story is from Jerry’s POV but there are certain times during the story that I would have loved to be in John’s head, that would have been awesome… don’t get me wrong Jerry is awesome in his own right, but the things happening to John wow.

Unspeakable Words is a fantastic contemporary FBI story that has the added bonus of paranormal aspects, it gives the author more to play with and this author hit it just right. We have a fascinating case, characters who struggle with new developments and a tentative budding relationship… there’s also a dash of danger as John uses his new ability to hunt down Jerry when he vanishes.

I recommend this story to those who love difficult characters, a dash of paranormal in their contemporary, some serious teasing and hot sex, and great characters who bring a great story to life.
