Lost Mate

by

Dirk Greyson

Wolf shifter Falco Gladstone knew Carter McCloud was his mate when they were in seventh grade, but school and the foster care system tore them apart. Years later, Falco is second in command of his Michigan pack, serving under an uncle who cares more about his own power than the welfare of their people. The alpha orders Falco to marry and produce offspring—but Falco’s already found his mate, and mates are forever.

Carter’s lonely life is turned upside down when he detects a familiar scent on the wind. The mates might have found each other, but their happily ever after is far from guaranteed. Falco’s commitment to Carter puts him at odds with his uncle’s plans, and when one of the alpha’s enforcers starts shadowing the couple, something must be done—something that will either cement their relationship or destroy it once and for all.

Fangs With A Heart

(Chain of Fate 02)
by

Tempeste O’Riley

Lynx shifter Trace Wilson’s fun-loving exterior hides a heart scarred by severe domestic violence—a heart that might not ever trust another male, fated mate or not. When Trace moves to Seattle to take his place as trainer and council representative to the Glacier Rim Tribe, he discovers his mate is the vampire prince Sasha Tolstoi, leader of the Konstantin Coven. It’s not something Trace is ready to accept. Not now, maybe not ever. But if there’s one thing Sasha knows how to do, it’s how to be patient, especially when his fated heart is also his perfect sub.

When an outside force threatens the fragile bond slowly forming between them—and nearly kills Trace—Trace’s instincts shift into high gear. Sasha is powerful, and that means he has enemies, among them several rival covens and an uncle determined to force Sasha into a marriage with a vampire princess. But why involve the lynx Trace in their maneuvering? Finding the culprit won’t be easy, and it will mean building trust—a slow and difficult prospect for someone who’s suffered as much as Trace. Finding a way to move beyond the past, and to love, before those out to finish Sasha can destroy either, is a race the two fated hearts have to win.

Blurb: When vampire Kristair binds his heart and soul to a human vessel in an ancient ritual, he never expects to fall in love with Jacob Corvin as well.

Review:

My Heart is Within You. Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Kristair is an ancient vampire looking for a body for his heart to inhabit before he deteriorates. He hears voices though he’s not sure they are real. He sees Jacob at a football game and becomes immediately entranced with the young man. He takes to learning everything he can about him. Jacob knows someone has been following him. When he finally meets the man he has dreamed of the attraction is instant. When he learns of who Kristair is is he worried? Of course, but that does stop him from wanting him? No. 

I loved this story. It flowed seamlessly and wrapped the reader in a layer of mystery. I am assuming the story will continue in the next book as there are questions that were not answered in this one. Nevertheless I loved it.

Haunted by Your Soul. Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

A lot went on in this powerful continuation. Kristair has been killed. But before he was he transferred a piece of his soul and all his memories to Jacob. Jacob wants revenge on the poor hungry vampires for the torment the put Kristair through but Kristair’s memories force him to see reason. The syndicate is after Jacob so Jacob finds an ally in Tony who came back from the collective and then killed again.

It’s a fascinating story that takes you deeper into the vampires world. I thought the collective was a brilliant addition. I loved that the theory is that souls are around each other not just drifting aimlessly. This is where Kristair ended up while trying to get back to Jacob.

Our Sacred Balance. Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

This book was vastly different from the first two. The main thing being Kristair is human in this one. So he is adjusting to what humans can and cannot do after spending thousands of years as a vampire. While it might seem simple, it was not. I much preferred him as a vampire myself. Along with that change comes the fact that someone is killing vampires and Kristair feels he must look into it despite no longer being paranormal himself. 

There were tense scenes and hot ones but I felt the book was seriously lacking as opposed to the first two in the series.

0verall:

All in all this bundle was a great read with plenty of hot action, mystery, suspense that takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of two people’s lives and what they must endure to be together.

Reviewer: Lisa 

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

When I found out that these two authors were going to team up to write this series I knew I wanted to read it.  Let’s just say I was not let down at all.  The world that was created is unique and fresh in my eyes.  There are not very many books with dragon shifters nor phoenix shifters, well this series combines them both.  I had just finished the first one and couldn’t wait to start this one.  It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.  I love the characters but especially Angelo.  There is just something special about that man. 

When Angelo was seventeen his life had changed, he was brutally gang raped and his phoenix had been taken from him.  Now many years have passed and he has found his mate.  His fear was stopping him from doing what he would have naturally done.  Thank god Morgan is the patient type because his little mate needed him.  When Angelo’s visions were telling him that a dead man was still causing trouble with their town, he is left shaken.  However time will show that the visions were of something worse. 

I loved how this story was so full of excitement, suspense, emotion and twists.   I loved how captivated I was when I was reading it and how I was wishing I was right there with them.  It gave me exactly what I wanted and when I needed it.  I loved this book and can’t wait to read the next book.  This is one series that I would recommend reading.

Blurb: After Andy Lapin’s brother falsely accused him of theft, he was taken away to do his time. Luckily, the crime is petty, and he can get out by selling himself to an alpha who needs a temporary mate for breeding. The only problem is that he actually has no choice in the matter, and the alpha is already here to collect what’s his.

Istvaughn Kristoff is at an age where he should be producing pups, heirs who will take over the pack when he’s gone, and he needs a human to drink his blood and act as his mate so he can get them. Only humans can carry shifter babies, but the problem is they often die when doing so. Still, Vaughn is willing to pay good money for Andy to take the risk, even if Vaughn is risking that his children end up with terrible red hair.

What he doesn’t expect is the instant attraction that hits him—or wanting this human so badly.

But surely it’s just a normal attraction. He can’t possibly have a natural mating with this human…could he?

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Falsely accused of theft Andy is put in a program to breed with the highest bidder. He is sold to Alpha Vaughn. Vaughn has no intentions of getting close to Andy as humans are the only ones who can have shifters children and usually die in childbirth. Unbeknown to him fate has other plans in store for him.

It’s a great beginning to the series as we see how cold Vaughn is toward Andy. I’m actually surprised Andy stayed as I would not have. I loved Andy. He was so sweet and innocent. I just wanted to hug him as the story progressed.

Highly recommended.

Blurb: Trapped in their closets, the only thing to do is come out twice.

Salford and Ruby, vampire-wolves, have been born into The Clan, into the Level where killing is expected. Hating their jobs eliminating humans who have discovered vampire-wolves exist, they long for better times, where bloodshed isn’t the order of the day. But that isn’t about to happen any time soon—not while Albert, one of The Clan’s twelve Leaders, oversees everything they do.

Ruby, a cross-dresser, has spent many of his previous centuries trapped in the closet. Lately, though, he’s been able to wear what he wants and can express his love for Salford in public. Knowing how freeing that has been, he wishes The Clan laws were different and that he and Salford didn’t have to kill, freeing them from that dreadful closet, too. But it would take a strong person to ask The Clan to consider a vote that would allow Ruby and Salford to be exempt from having to kill, and Ruby isn’t sure he’s the right man for the job.

With a London gang discovering vampire-wolves exist, and Salford having dreams that tell him what they must face next, Salford and Ruby must eliminate the men who are after them. But someone else is also a danger—someone closer to home. Someone who should have vampire-wolves’ best interests at heart, but doesn’t…

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Unique and highly entertaining. Ruby and Salford couldn’t be more different tha night and day. Ruby loves to dress up in heels and pretty dresses and has a great personality. Salford is more reserved but serious and thoughtful. I loved the fact that they were both vampire and wolf which was rare. 

Not all approved of them and their relationship. Amid trying to lay low they have to work for The Clan by killing others that threaten their existence. But both Ruby and Salford do not want to do it anymore. They set out to find a way out of it. What they discover is a sinister plot that puts Ruby’s life in danger from someone who should have been watching their backs. 

I loved everything about story. It intriguing, mysterious at times and action packed at others. The whole story was well written and flows smoothly as you immerse yourself into a power struggle of epic proportions. 

Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: I really wanted to love this bundle. But alas I was unable to enjoy it as much as I normally would. Each story had great plot ideas but failed to keep the reading smooth. I was unsure whether this was done deliberately or not. At times I found myself annoyed at some weird sentence phrasings. 

I feel each main character of the stories should have had background stories, yet some did not. As a result I was disappointed. But aside from those things it was a good read with great ideas to expand on or go through and eliminate some things while adding others.

This bundle is a total of five stories in the series that have werewolves, fairies, dragons, wizards, humans, imps, firebirds and quite a few others are in these stories as they all struggle to survive and to find the one they are meant to be with for all time while overcoming prejudices and danger. Dramatic and entertaining to a point this bundle has it all.

Good read.

Blurb: Portland Pack Chronicles: Book Two

In the four months since hedgehog shifter Avery Babineaux started investigating the disappearance of a young female werewolf from the Portland Pack, he’s discovered his life’s passion. Now he’s apprenticing under established PI Corbin Reid. Avery hopes his training with Reid will help him finally bring Lacey home, but detective work isn’t without its perils, and the potential dangers strain his relationship with his new mate, Dylan.

Dylan Green would be perfectly content with his mating and his motorcycle shop if it wasn’t for his constant worry about Avery’s safety and the fact that Avery’s never home. Proud as he might be of Avery’s determination to prove his worth and fulfill his promise to Lacey’s father, Dylan can’t stand the thought of Avery being hurt. Yet what right does he have to demand Avery give up his job when it’s clear Avery’s found his true purpose? Still, Dylan wishes he could, and the appearance of a new police detective who sets his sights on Avery only adds to the tension.

Something has to give, but stubbornness runs in both their veins, and it might take a catastrophe for them to find a compromise they can live with.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Prickly By Nature is the second book in the Portland Chronicles series. I feel that it would be very difficult to understand the overarching plotlines without having read or heard book 1 before hand. It is an enjoyable addition to the series.

We pick up the story of prickly hedgehog shifter, Avery Babineaux, and his wolf shifter mate Dylan Green. Avery is as prickly as his creature. He’s a good old southern boy from an obscenely rich family who believe that if there’s anything worse than Avery being gay, it’s that he’s mated to a wolf shifter. Avery and Dylan have overcome their problems to enjoy a proper mating. But Avery is taking on more than he really should in his new career as a private investigator and Dylan both worries and feels neglected by his mate. Throw in a mystery carried over from the previous book involving human trafficking and a new set of mates and everything in the story is ready to go.

However, it pains me to say I did not enjoy the story as much as I had been hoping, or rather expecting to. I enjoyed the plot in general and I loved the voice that Iggy Toma gave to the story. For me the narration was actually the saving grace that kept me going. My issue was the overall flow of the story was a tad too slow for my liking. In fact, I think the best way to put it that there was a lot of “telling” and “listing” in the story. Even the sex scenes seemed a little long and purely explanatory.

I think for me this is a book I would rather read the written word instead of hearing. I would definitely find more enjoyment out of that. This is a good paranormal romance from an equally enjoyable series – it’s just not the best installment in my opinion.

Blurb: Centuries ago the Phoenix and Dragons were a force no one could penetrate. They fought together, mated together, and worked side by side, and then all that changed. The children of the leaders were dead and war had practically destroyed them all. The fighting stopped and they both went their separate ways. 

Daytona was the Captain of the Crystal fire department. He loved his small town and he loved his job. However, what none of the small town knew was that he was also a dragon. Crystal was a small location just outside Denver, and it was also the home to the Phoenix. He had lived amongst them for years, hiding his scent, until the day came that he could no longer keep his secret. 

When a fire claims his mother’s life, Ethan rushes home. Having your mother being a victim of an arson is not something he was prepared to face, but discovering he wouldn’t have to do it alone, should have been a relief. The thing is…that relief came in the form of a dragon, and the town believes that his mate is the cause of all the fires around town. 

When the arsonist strikes close to home, Day knows he must clear his name and find the culprit that is now trying to kill his mate.

Reviewer: Lisa 

Review:  I have read a few stories by each of these authors and have loved their stories, however combined they are amazing.  I loved this even more because you very rarely find these two different paranormal creatures mixed into a story.  It is either dragon shifters or you will find the phoenix shifter, but never together.  So it was a unique story for me.  It was fully developed and the details made it feel like I was right there with them.

At one time dragons and phoenix shifters worked together, mated and loved one another.  That is until a big betrayal destroyed it all. A war started and many died, but soon each shifter moved on.  They went their separate ways, well until a certain dragon wanted to get away from his clutch and start his own life.  His father was the leader of his clutch in Denver, but Daytona just wanted to make his own way.  So he lived among the phoenix shifters without anyone knowing.  That is until a fire that he had to make a choice.

Ethan was a beautiful phoenix shifter however he had been away from home for some time.  When he comes back to find his mother gone, he realizes that he has also found the one for him.  To his shock it would seem that a dragon and a phoenix might just find love once more together. Too bad someone is either trying to kill Daytona or frame him for the fires.

I loved how this story was so full of excitement, suspense, emotion and twists.  Usually when I come across a new series, I am a bit let down because the first book doesn’t hit the high note with me.  However this was the exact opposite and I had so much fun reading it.  I could not put this book down and can’t wait to start on book two.  This has hit my favorite list right off the bat.

Reviewer: Lisa

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

It has been sometime since I have read this series, and I realize just how much I missed them.  The characters are a blast to read about and so much damn fun.  There is always action, suspense, danger and some hot situations that these guys get into.  Not to mention hot sex, but I will leave that up to your imagination.  These stories always catch my attention and it never waivers until the very end.  It just seems to flow at the right pace for me.

Sage started getting his powers at the age of five years old.  He just had no clue what was going on.  Then he shifted into a wolf, and that just freaked him out more.  So when the tri symbol showed up on his arm, he researched it and ran from his grandmother for fear of hurting her.  He didn’t know the true meaning though, just what he read.  He ran until he came across a man so evil that it would take all he had to escape. For two years he was doing it and working the Angel Pack.  Now they have figured out what he was and he runs.

Slade is a vampire that can walk in the sun, but that is not all he is.  He comes to see what the problem is, and finds his little mate.  Those who are evil are hunting him down, and Slade must get to him to protect him.  The whole pack is on the move, for when Sage turns twenty-one the powers that be will strengthen.  Now for more, you are just going to have to read the book.

This is one of the best series that I have come across in a long time.  It is so action packed that I was on the edge of my seat throughout it all.  I have to admit though that the amount of characters that are in this, that at some points it does get confusing with who they are.  However it doesn’t’ take away from the story at all.  I can’t wait to get started reading the next book.  What a story it is!

Blurb: They thought finding each other would heal them both, but life in Saint Lakes doesn’t make it that simple.

Sage Rickman was in the wrong place at the wrong time. At least that’s what he think when the vampires kidnap him. Working through the mental anguish of all the vampires did to him is difficult to get through to say the very least. Peace of mind is an elusive creature though. He thought finding his mate would make things better, but trust doesn’t come easy.

Garridan Arach can’t remember anything about his past. He’s been in his dragon form far too long for a normal shifter to take. Being feral is the least of his worries though, especially when his memory starts coming back. Not that he cares about his past. All he wants is his mate. A mate that keeps rejecting him every time they’re together. His past has a way of catching up with him, and he discovers things that will make life in Saint Lakes less than peaceful.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  Each book in the Saint Lakes collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.  This series is connected to the Wingspan series but I would suggest reading this series first.

My mother got me started reading romance stories at a pretty young age and it just seem to click with me from the first one.  It wasn’t until about two years after I started reading that I realized I actually liked the paranormal ones the best.  Then close to four years ago I accidentally downloaded two m/m romance stories.  Let’s just say once I got over the shock, I started reading more and more of them.  So much so that I cannot read any books with girly parts in them.  My mother got a kick out of that at least.

When April wrote her very first book and I got my hands on it, I knew that she was going to be a big hit with me and I was right.  Her characters are unique and very fresh to me.  Also her worlds just seem to hit with my desires.  I knew from that point on that she was going to be an automatic buy from that point on.  I have not been let down yet.

There is something about the way that she writes, that not only draw you in but keeps you there.  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.  The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down.  

You don’t come across many books where the characters are dragons so imagine my delight when I found out that they were in April’s stories.  Garridan is a powerful dragon shifter who had just lost his best friend.  His friend and his wife left behind a beautiful young boy who was afraid to let him out of his sight, but Garridan knew he had to find out who was behind the killings and end them.  Too bad for him, he hadn’t counted on being caught and kept for many years.  That is until he is found and rescued over forty years later, nor to find his mate.

The ones that had Garridan had also kidnapped his mate, Sage.  The things done to Sage is horrific and evil, but between the two of them well you will just have to read the book to find out more.  

I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series that you can’t put down and have to read more than once. It is the perfect story for me and gave me all that I needed. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. I had a blast reading it and I can’t wait to read the next story.

When the last thing you want, is everything you need….

Seb Calloway isn’t interested in shifters. After his best friend bonded with one, he avoids getting involved with them—no matter how hot they are—to prevent the same thing from happening to him. Why take the risk for a few hours of fun?

Tim Walters is the pack doctor. Considered to be mild-mannered and non-threatening by pack standards, he prides himself on being able to stay calm and maintain his control at all times. Desperate for a bond of his own, he knows his interest in Seb is an exercise in futility, but he can’t seem to help himself.

When news emerges that threatens Seb’s safety, he and Tim need to fake a relationship to keep Seb safe. Despite Seb’s refusal to be anything other than friends with benefits, what starts out as pretend, quickly becomes more—for Tim at least. If Tim doesn’t want to end up heartbroken, he needs to prove to Seb that loving a shifter doesn’t mean losing himself.

Someone’s killing werewolves.

Lukas Vance finds a list of towns, and in each one he discovers a murdered 19-year-old who smells almost like pack even though he knows they can’t be related to him. He reaches the next town on the list before the killer, determined to get the intended victim out of this situation alive. When he catches the familiar pack scent and sees the guy it belongs to, Lukas wants to do so much more than protect him.

Chris Keenan doesn’t know why gorgeous, broody Lukas thinks he’s in danger. Lukas says he wants to keep him safe, and when Chris freaks out Lukas is the only one able to calm him down. Chris has been feeling off for a while, and whatever’s causing that seems to be related to the list of towns and the murderer who’s made him a target. Instead of going to the police, Chris puts his trust in Lukas. But even with Lukas protecting him, figuring out what’s wrong with him may be the last thing Chris ever does.

Shift is a 98,000-word novel for people who want some gay shifter romance inside their urban fantasy, ensemble cast adventure.
