Blurb: After months of courting his four wolverine suitors, Ethan is ready to be mated. Lash, Slug, Charm, and Rage are more than ready to seal the deal, wanting nothing more than to make Ethan theirs…in every way. But their families are not so keen on the wolverine clans being sullied by the mating and will stop at nothing to prevent it. 

Ignoring the warnings, the mates bond at last, and finish off with an impromptu wedding. Then, the trouble really begins.  

The wolverine clans start a fight that has some tragic consequences, and the town of Sage is once again under siege. Rage’s brother, abused by their parents, is sent in as a weapon of destruction, triggering a series of events that leave the residents reeling. 

Can Ethan and his mates weather the storm? Can the wolverines defy their families without destroying Sage?

Note: This book contains double penetration.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Ethan is finally ready to claim his wolverine mates. But the wolverine’s families are not ready for the deed to be done and will stop at nothing to stop it. An exciting addition to the series as Alfie makes plans for the games and tries to include and swindle everyone in the town of Sage into them. Hilarious interactions give a much needed respite in this intense story. 

I was appalled at the wolverine’s families. They are diabolical in their quest. Poor Douglas is hurt both physically and emotionally in the attack. Action, drama, mystery, suspense and betrayal are interwoven in this edge of your seat read. 

It is best to read these stories in order as each picks up where the last leaves off. This is a truly fantastic series that I highly recommend.

Can a whistleblower find a new future with a wolf while being chased by a corrupt cop and the Serbian mob?

Richard Kerrigan is on the verge of losing hope. Fired from his job for blowing the whistle on a defect that would harm service members if used as designed, he is now blacklisted in the Chicago area. A local Serbian mobster wants Richard and won’t take no for an answer.

Richard relocates to Manhattan to begin his new job and stays with Julien Bellaire, his mentor, who is also Richard’s Mate.

Before they can settle in, the Serbian mobster turns up dead and a corrupt cop who secretly works for the Serbians comes to New York with trumped up charges to pin the murder on Richard. With over eighty witnesses to Richard being on an airplane at the time of the murder, the cop abandons trying to frame Richard and instead plots to murder him. The loup garou request assistance from the Italian mob to protect Richard which comes with some interesting consequences.

(Sanctuary 01)
by

Can cats and dogs ever get along, let alone fall in love?

Sam knows you can never go home again. As an orphaned feline shifter raised by wolves, being an outcast is nothing new to him. But the pack is still his family, and when one of them passes away, Sam returns to the New Mexico desert to say good-bye.

Gus is a loner who rarely returns to his pack, but as fate would have it, Sam is there when he chooses to visit. The history between Gus and Sam is tumultuous, to say the least, but when Gus gets an eyeful of the grown-up and gorgeous version of his childhood bully, he can’t control his reaction. And he isn’t alone.

The attraction is powerful, but so are their differences. And with trouble brewing in the pack and danger surrounding them, Sam and Gus might not have the opportunity to seek common ground.

This action-packed shifter novel is the ultimate opposites attract and enemies-to-lovers romance, and it includes a bonus novella, In the Dog House.

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Blurb: Vance thought his pride meant everything to him…until fate sent Joey into his lair and into his heart.

Vance has grown up the odd one out in a macho and very insular pride of lion shifters. Differences like enjoying the cool fall weather are bad enough—his pridemates would kill him if they learned he was gay. Still, his pride is all he knows. He’s never even met a shifter of another type…until he discovers an unconscious cougar male in his lair.

Joey is on the run and wants to keep Vance at arm’s length, especially since someone very close to the lion is at the root of all his troubles. But there is something irresistible about Vance, something that has Joey wanting more than he has ever dared to dream.

When their lives are threatened, Joey must choose whether to sacrifice himself, or try to live and keep Vance close…for the very short remainder of his life.

Publisher’s Note: This book has previously been released by Pride Publishing. It has been revised, expanded and re-edited for re-release. 

ISBN: 978-1-78651-494-3

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: I love a story that has a twist that takes me by surprise as this one did. Joey is on the verge of death but manages to escape his captors and hide out in a cave to recover. Unbeknownst to him it’s Vance’ private spot where he can get away from his pride and reflect on things. Vance finds Joey but is unable to make him leave due to the pull he feels.

As the story progresses we learn what happened to Joey and who exactly caused it. I loved the tense nature in this story. It kept me intrigued and engaged to know exactly what happened. The twists and turns just kept on coming. 

Highly recommended.

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Blurb: When Brady was given a free pass to sow his wild oats, as long as he’s back with the pride before fall, he never dreamed he’d meet his mate…or that his mate would be a man.

As the pride’s alpha heir, Brady knows the weight of responsibility. He’s expected to settle down, find a mate and have an heir of his own. But first he’s given the opportunity to travel and visit other prides, an unspoken opportunity to get his attraction to men out of his system before he comes home and does his duty.

Mason has his hands full fostering Jonah, an abandoned teen soon to have his first shift. He doesn’t have time to babysit a visiting alpha heir, but duty calls. As the second son of the alpha, he knows his place, and when he’s given a task, he does it.

Brady and Mason realize almost instantly that they are mates…and both also know that it can never come to pass. With the expectations they need to fulfill, this short time together will be the only chance they have to taste what could be. But they are tied together by more than just instinct—old crimes and hidden connections come to light and they are forced to make hard choices between duty and love.

Publisher’s Note: This book is the sequel to Pride and Joey.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: After the events in the first book Brady, the Alpha heir, is told by his father to take some time and sow his wild oats then come back and choose a mate. The first place he goes he meets Mason, the second son of the alpha to that pride. Mason is fostering Jonah, a young man whose father disappeared.

Sparks fly between Brady and Mason and when they actually come together boy is it hot. But they are not the only story being told as revelations come to light about Jonah and who his father was that throw everyone’s life upside down.

Fantastic read with plenty of hotness, suspense and mystery that leave the reader reeling with the end. I loved it and highly recommend it.

Blurb: Their love could save the soul of a fallen angel or damn an archangel to an eternity in Hell.

The realm of angels was created as a paradise where angels could watch over the earth as mankind took his first steps. For the archangel Michael, it is the only home he has ever known and he could never envisage another life. Michael’s life changes the day his path crosses that of the favored son of the morning. From the moment he sees him, Michael wants Lucifer for his own. When the two angels come together the passion surprises them both.

Their love is forged in Heaven, but is doomed the moment Lucifer falls from grace to become the leader of an army of demons.

Separated by war, the former lovers know the time will come when they must face each other in battle.

Their confrontation will set in motion events that neither could have foreseen. For Lucifer it is the chance to persuade Michael to stand at his side, as his partner as leader of the demons. For Michael, it is a mission to save his lover’s soul, while risking his own.

Torn between his love for Lucifer and his duties as an angel, Michael walks a fine line, where one wrong step could result in his own fall from Heaven, and an eternity in Hell. 

Publisher’s Note: Although this book contains characters from the Heavenly Sins series, this can be read as a standalone story.

ISBN: 978-1-78651-509-4

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: An amazing journey into the lives of two powerful angels that spans centuries. Archangel Michael has been secretly enamoured of the morning star, Lucifer. When first they meet it seems as if Michael has lost his chance forever but Lucifer seeks him out, and so a hot and passionate relationship starts between the two.

It was a book about taking chances, heartbreak, tragedy, love and doing what you think is right for the one you love. A lot happens throughout this wonderfully written story. Though I’m not going to give anything away needless to say I was impressed by how each man was portrayed. Although I must admit I was a little put off by how Michael seemed so shy around Lucifer at first but it was to be expected. 

There were a few questions left unanswered so maybe a sequel or follow up book? Who knows. Aside from that I loved the entire story. It states that this book can be read as a stand-alone yet is in fact connected to the series Heavenly Sins. I did not read that series so some characters that came into play were written as though I should know them already in certain situations. I wish I had read the series.

The whole story was a gripping epic tale that took me by the most delightful surprises. I never knew what decisions each person was going to make when it came to the difficult ones, which thrilled me. There is not always happy times but they eventually get there. I loved it.

Highly recommended.

More Things In Heaven and Earth

by

Paul Comeau

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.

Review:  This one is definitely not to Christmas themed, and I am not sure about what to think of it.  Vampire killed and in hiding from his own kind.  Alone on Christmas, he hires a sexy little man to be his for the night and you will just have to read.

This one was a very weird story and not at all what I wanted.  It actually was depressing in its way, but the ending was a tad bit better.  However I am afraid that this is one story that was not for me.

In the quest to craft the perfect gift, Dave tries to urge a few personal details out of stoic Amit. Unintentionally, he learns the Cohen family’s secret: Amit is a golem.

Not only is the warlock sitting on the edge of death, he’s illegally bonded to the werepups, which could trigger a war with the werewolves—and he turns out to be Misery’s estranged husband.

Years ago, Griffin turned Misery away to be with another warlock by the name of Marcheso Aldo. Misery left everything behind, even his family, but couldn’t shake the heartbreak Griffin caused.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Wow. Grim is the president of the Harbinger MC’s. When he is informed of a problem with a shipment he goes to investigate and finds his husband, (who chose another over him years before), on deaths door and were pups blood-bonded to him. Griffin had his reasons for doing what he did years before and it had nothing to do with wanting another.

The reasoning was heart-breaking as well as distasteful on the part of the warlock who wanted more power by any means necessary. There is a whole cast of characters that were both intriguing and terrifying. I loved the plot of the good versus the bad. The way the story played out was fantastic as each had a role to play. The different beings were a plus for me as usually there are only one or two in a story. That is not the case here.

So to say this is a good read is an understatement. It had angst, celestial beings, weres, action, drama, mystery and romance. Great read that I highly enjoyed.

I am looking forward to reading more in this series.

Blurb:  Sheriff Sam Daly, a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, and his husband, Michael Bellomo, have made a life for themselves in sparsely populated Pine County in the Colorado mountains. Sam oversees the small sheriff’s department, and Michael sells his paintings and tourist items out of his shop, Needful Things. From the beginning, Sam has known Michael possessed gifts: the ability to see and hear things Sam cannot.

When a report of a body in a massive snow-filled depression up a mountainside sends Sam and his deputy, Digger, to investigate, Sam struggles to reconcile the existence of skinwalkers in Pine County with the world he’s familiar with. Michael, though, deals with this reality through his art, and through the mysticism he’s been gifted. Sam’s effort to discover what is happening causes him to examine his life with Michael from the time they first met. The inevitable conclusion might be that he’ll never understand the mysteries of the mountains, but for the sake of Michael and their love, he’ll have to embrace them.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  When I first saw this I though spooky because let’s face it the cover is.  However once you start reading it, well the cover was right on.  Now normally as a reviewer I don’t really pay a lot of attention to that many covers unless there is just something there that grabs me.  So when that happens I know which way the book is going to go for me.  Now I have had the pleasure to read a few books by this author and let’s just say, they have you sitting on the edge of your seat.  

From the moment I started reading this book my attention was caught.  Now normally I take my time reading such a long story and usually lose my attention after a point.  However this one just wouldn’t let me go.  I have heard many stories of skin walkers, an old Indian legend, mostly bad but a few were good.  However like I said most of them represented evil.  In the shape of an owl, it represents, but there is a part of him that is special. He notices something special about his man.

Michael has the abilities to see and hear things no one else can.  It is seen in his art and it will have Sam trying to deal with it.  Then when a skinwalker is found dead, it leads them on a ride that neither will forget.  

I think that this is one of the best stories I have come across in a long time.  It is focused more on what is going on than on just sex.  It has a real world tone to it even though it is a paranormal story.  Although, sometimes I wonder if our stories are not true in a sense.  I really enjoyed this and look forward to more by this amazing author.  This is one story I would definitely recommend.  I hope that this author turns this into a series with these two finding more stuff to get into.

Blurb: Chane Taunton is running out of time. He’s not a warrior. He’s a monk…well, ex-monk. And herbalist. Neither qualifies him to capture a deranged vampire. Unfortunately, to keep his brother and friends safe, he must try. He just has to set the right trap. Of course, this is made even more difficult with the arrival of his brother, Archie, who keeps following Chane from coven to coven spiking Chane’s drinks and placing himself in danger.

When the trap fails, again, Chane is saved by a gorgeous, big feline shifter, Dominic Sanchez, who declares Chane is his mate. Due to an accident, Chane is unable to immediately scent the shifter as mate, but Dom is adamant and sets out to woo Chane, soothing the vampire’s many ruffles and discovering all his secrets.

With an assassin on the loose and gunning for them, Dom has his work cut out for him. Luckily he has a lot of crafty shifters and the mate pull on his side.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Chane is constantly on the move due to his psychotic ex, an assassin, who doesn’t take ending the relationship too well. I found that Chane was determined to put his in the past and try to move forward. Only to be pushed back a few steps. I was glad he had help when Dom came along. 

The fight to move forward was hard. Yet with the support of his mate and all the others in Milson valley he was right where he needed to be. I felt sorry for Chane not being able to scent his mate due to an accident. But with time Chane begins to grow closer to Dom. 

Archie, Chane’s brother, was a hoot. I loved his character. He was extremely protective of Chane yet funny and snarky. I loved the action, romance, drama and suspense in this addition to the series. 

Highly recommended.

Ran is gorgeous, cheeky, so relaxed he could slip into a coma, sweet, and just seems to stumble into trouble. And man, does he ever get Deakin hot!

When his mate has a little bit of trouble at his latest job and the local wolf pack become protective big brothers, Deakin may have hyperventilated and demanded a lawyer. Sure, the pack seem friendly—too friendly really. They keep trying to touch his mate. But they are saying all this stuff about Ran actually having a different name, needing protection, and that he is ill.

But then Ran is shot by an assassin sent by his ex-Alpha, a vicious creature bent on revenge. The local Avenger is called in to eliminate the threat, and all their lives take a very unexpected turn.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Deakin and Ran have been on the move since Ran’s ex-Alpha is intent on harming Ran anyway he can and will stop at nothing to attain that goal. When Avenger Vicus is called in to eliminate the threat to Ran things take an interesting turn.

Deakin is part human, part sprite, has asthma and is a bit high strung at times. The way he acts at times was hilarious but understandable. Ran, is easy going and constantly getting into trouble. But I believe it was a result of what happened by his previous pack.

I loved the interactions between these two despite the situation they find themselves in. Avenger Vicus is used to people giving him a wide berth. He is unused to relationships but knows that Deakin and Ran are his mates. He will do all in his power to protect them.

Suspense, drama and action surround this addition to the Milson Valley series.
