Witchy Boys


Katey Hawthorne

Just in time for Halloween! Two novelettes about men with magic—and the occasional demon. 

“Blood Magic and the Mini Zombie Apocalypse”

Griff has a bad habit of getting talked into black magic he shouldn’t be using—but this time it’s even worse. His ex is bent on revenge in the form of a mini zombie apocalypse, and the only person who can help Griff is a hottie white magic practitioner named Blythe. The catch: one of Griff’s spells gone wrong left Blythe with a haunted apartment a year ago, and Blythe isn’t over it.

Still, Blythe agrees to work with Griff. As they unravel the ugly blood, sex, and death magic, they also discover surprising things about each other. Hopefully, it’s enough for the ultimate trust they’ll need to defeat a lot of zombies and a crazed witch, or their town will end up covered in corpses.


Six years ago, Thackeray agreed to let a demon haunt him in exchange for help hunting other demons. It’s a lonely life, but worth it to be the best demon hunter possible — to save families from the kind of evil that ruined his own childhood.

This Hallowe’en, Thackeray’s dealing with an upstart coven. A powerful, pretty witch named Matt defects to help Thackeray stop their scheme to invite god-knows-what from the other side. 

Demons are much easier to fight than the urges Matt’s flirting inspires. But Thackeray can’t hook up with a demon watching over his shoulder… can he?

Blurb: Getting calls from the dead in the middle of the night isn’t Oliver’s idea of fun… 

Oliver gets calls from the dead, imploring him to help them find their killers. He’s heard them since he was a child and now assists the police in their investigations. He works closely with Detective Langham—and has steadily fallen more in love with him every day of the six months he’s known him. But does Langham feel the same? Is Langham even gay?

When Oliver answers the call of a dead woman, he finds himself standing in a remote field, gazing down at her corpse. Someone else is out there with him, though, watching, waiting to cause him harm. After he’s run off the road, Oliver has no choice but to aid Langham in finding her killer—no choice because more people are killed and more people call out to him…he’s unable to ignore their pleas.

As the body count grows and the investigation becomes more complex, Oliver realises that Langham is indeed very gay—and out to make Oliver his.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: When I first started reading this, I wasn’t sure I would make it past the first chapter, so I had put the book down for a couple of hours. Kind of like giving my eyes a rest and giving this story a second chance, and let me tell you it worked. I have to say that the cover was kind of creepy and considering this story, it fit.

Oliver knows two things, one is the dead and the other is, he has the hots for the detective he deals with. Oliver has always been able to hear the dead talking to him after they were killed. This is the first time though, that they were talking to him while they were being murdered. This one murder leads him on a difficult task. This one murder is just the start of a gory mass murder. Drugs, torn apart bodies, children with red eyes and demons are just a start with him. However he at least has a good man on his side.

Langham has wanted Oliver from the start, and he is going to show him in more ways than one. Now all they have to do is to find out who is behind the killings before he can show Oliver just how much he wants him. The problem is these murders are even more freaky then he thought. The danger was high and he had plans.

I found myself loving this story more than I thought. I absolutely loved the world this author created and the gift it took to make it this wicked. I was glad that I had given it a second chance and cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.

Wolf’s Clothing by E.J. Russell

Genre: Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

Length: Novel (349 pages)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Blurb: What do you do when you finally prove the existence of the otherworld, but the ghosts kick your ass?

For Trent Pielmeyer, the answer is run like hell—away from his hostile family, away from the disbelieving cops, and far, far, far away from anything that smacks of the supernatural. After seven years’ captivity in a whacked-out alternate dimension, he is so over legend tripping.

When Christophe Clavret spots Trent in a Portland bar, he detects a kindred spirit—another man attempting to outrun the darkness of his own soul. But despite their sizzling chemistry, Trent’s hatred of the uncanny makes Christophe hesitant to confide the truth: he’s a werewolf, one of a dwindling line, the victim of a genetic curse extending back to feudal Europe.

But dark forces are at work, threatening more than their growing love. If Christophe can’t win Trent’s trust, and if Trent can’t overcome his fear of the paranormal, the cost could be Trent’s freedom and Christophe’s humanity. Or it might be both their lives.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Wolf’s Clothing is the sequel to the first book in the Legend Tripping series, Stumptown Spirits. While it is probably not vital to read book 1 before getting to book 2, there are a lot of key facts about the MC Trent Pielmeyer which would make a lot more sense.

We met Trent in book 1, at first he was introduced by his friend because he was “missing” and his family assumed that he was dead. Instead he was involved a deadly ghostly reenactment of a centuries old crime. Trent, and another man, were left in a sort of limbo. In Trent’s case, he was there for seven years. Therefore, when he reappeared out of nowhere – whether he told the truth or everyone assumed that he was suffering from PTSD – he was dismissed as something of a head case. He also reappeared looking as though not a day had past – he was a 27 year old in a 19 year old’s body. And on top of all that he often has nightmares of the seven years where he relived the hanging of a man in colonial Oregon.

Pretty twisted but now Trent wants nothing more than to move on. But while Trent has his own problems and wants to avoid all things paranormal, in particular anything that involves legend tripping, Christophe Clavert is an interesting case. He’s a wolf shifter, but he’s a bit resentful of his capabilities. Or rather, he doesn’t actually see it as a gift, more so a curse. There are a few parallels with Marvel’s X-Men during the course of the book and while I think that more detail could have gone into why Christophe feels this way, what is there is a good glimpse into the character.

Trent and Christophe both need to battle their own demons over the course of the book. They work well together and while the chemistry isn’t there from the outset it is clearly one of those cases where the romance is much more subtle and evolves as they get to know each other, i.e. it was definitely no love at first sight type of deal. However, it is ultimately Christophe’s issues that dominate and are thoroughly resolved by the end of the book. In fact, I find myself a little disappointed more time was spent on the detective that was following Trent and more about his mental state after being stuck in limbo for seven years. For that reason part of me was confused why the story was so long, but in the end I really got into the story.

If you liked the first book or if you’re looking for a paranormal/spirit based book with a twist this is the book for you, or at least worth the consideration.

Blurb: Botis, demon lord and ruler of sixty legions is having a rough day. Lucifer set him on a quest to find the potion given to Gilgamesh thousands of years before, which should be easy enough. But being told a visit to the Angel Raziel was a necessary part of the mission wasn’t so easy to understand. Everyone knew that demons and angels didn’t mix, and angels were strictly off limits for his kind. Which was a shame because the moment Botis set eyes on the sexy Raziel his imagination ran into overdrive. 

Raziel has a cruisy life. As the Angel of Secrets there aren’t many who darken his door with requests for finding strange artifacts any more, but he’s content. He has his shop, his taxi and his good friends, Anael and Uriel. Having Lucifer in his cab was the first sign things were about to change, but when Botis walks into his shop, Raziel starts to seriously reconsider his angelic abilities. No demon should be able to tempt him, so why was he affected by Botis’s sheer presence? 

Soon enough, Raziel and Botis learn their meeting was no accident. With forces at work beyond their control, they have to learn to rely on each other if they are going to beat the odds stacked against them. But how is that possible when Raziel’s untouchable, and Botis doesn’t have a heart?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This story can be read as a standalone, however I can guarantee that you will want to continue this series. 

I have read almost every story that this author has put out, but I wasn’t too sure about this particular story at first. It is a very fresh and unique idea and I for one was glad to have had a chance to read it. It has a serious tone to it, but there is quite a bit of humor which was a nice surprise for me. 

It would seem that the man in charge has decided that there needs to be a balance between hell and heaven. The humans were not calling on them as much as they use to so mating sounded good. Six to start but many to come later. Too bad no one warned them about it. Raziel was to find an ancient artifact for one of the demons, but neither had expected a set up. Heaven wanted Angel Raziel and the demon Botis to be mates. However there are some that see it as wrong and want to end it before it starts. The moment they see each other though, the sparks start to fly. 

Now usually I am captivated from the start, but this story took just a little more time in getting into it. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but let’s just say it has ranked pretty high up in her books. I was fascinated by the way seem to start off with distance, but soon they were protecting each other from those who wanted to cause harm.

I can probably guarantee that this is going to pretty much dominate all of your other stories that you have read. It was a big hit with me and I cannot wait to get my hands on the second book.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Anubis, an earth warrior, is sent on a mission to find out what artifact archaeologist, Jamil, has discovered. He finds he has to face his past while keeping his true self a secret from Jamil. 

I really enjoyed this story as I love stories about Egyptian gods and shifters. Well written with adventure, action, mystery and danger as Anubis must try and protect Jamil from someone who wants a powerful book that has been thought lost for centuries and will stop at nothing to attain it.

I loved the peeks into who Anubis was and what transpired all those years ago before he was killed and changed. It was heart-breaking to say the least. I also loved all the wonderful tidbits about the different artifacts throughout. I find it fascinating when an author combines ancient stories into modern ones with twists and turns. 

I certainly hope there will be more books in this fascinating series. Highly recommended.

Full Circle

(Sirius Wolves 07)

Victoria Sue

“Win the love of the wolf with the hardest heart.”

Faced with eternal banishment to hell, Anubis, god of the underworld, has found a loophole in one of the oldest laws which will allow him to unleash his evil on an unsuspecting human world. Orion’s only hope to stop him is to accept his challenge: send a champion to win the love of the wolf with the hardest heart. It will take someone with a pure heart to soften a closed one, so faced with the threat of losing not only the werewolves, but the destruction of the human race, the gods can only do one thing — send Adam, one of their own.

Adam quickly realizes that the werewolf whose love he must win is Jed.  Wounded after the loss of his wife and son, Jed promised he would never love again or be responsible for someone else’s happiness. Adam has been given a near impossible task.

Anubis is eager to see Adam fail, and unbeknown to everyone takes matters into his own hands to make sure of it. Everything happening now is part of his master plan, and finally it has come full circle.

Even if Adam succeeds and wins Jed’s heart, will that love survive when Jed discovers the whole thing was nothing more than a bet? Or when Adam does the one thing he mustn’t and falls in love himself, will he not only break Jed’s heart but completely destroy his own?

It’s been months since anyone at the Committee has had any contact from the O’Connell family or their pack members, and they are not happy.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I came across this author when I was looking for an audio book to listen to while at work and from the first story I was hooked. Many readers always want to know what happens in the future but Charlie came up with a different look into our guys lives. It is a unique and fresh idea that I have found intriguing. 

This story has actually come about from the questions many readers have sent to the author. From Cale’s and Seb’s date, to Lou’s date with a Bradley, to Dex and Sloane’s first trip to the grocery story, to Hobbs and Cal’s first valentine’s day and many more. It is a fun trip that is for sure.

I enjoyed reading this and look forward to seeing more from our sexy THIRDS members. I can’t wait to get a sexy little cheetah and bear getting together, so that is my hint. I had so much fun and can guarantee that this is one series that you would love to check out. I can also guarantee that you will have fun with these little snippets from our friends lives. This book and the others are the types that I will definitely read more than once.
