Julio Mendoza is an Alpha wolf and he’s earned a place on the Southeast Council.  Recently, Julio experienced torture at the hands of madmen and he’s not yet over it.  His therapist suggests a vacation but how can the man in charge leave all the people that rely on him and take a vacation.

 

Sera Sinclaire is a submissive empathetic coyote.  She landed in New Orleans after leaving her bastard husband and she’s decided to stay even though the town is overrun with dominant shifters.  There is one shifter Sera would love to get closer to…Julio.

 

When Sera’s ex comes back to town to force her home her new friends quickly show him the door. However, fearing this may not be enough Julio decides it’s time to take Sera on a vacation.  What will happen when an Alpha wolf and a submissive coyote go on a road trip?

 

Lust and desire ignite Impulse.  Julio and Sera make magic together.  I absolutely love this couple.  There are so many powerful emotions strumming between them.  Both of them have deep issues in need of healing.  Their trip allows them to truly get to know one another away from the prying eyes of the shifter community and gives them time to heal their souls together.

 

Impulse is entertaining! A vacation is definitely what the doctor ordered for Julio and Sera.  There are just as many fun moments as passionate ones.  The Southern Arcana series just keeps getting better and better as the authors dig deeper into the characters stories and their world.  I look forward to finding out what happens next in this exciting world.

Fourteen months ago Kat Gabriel lost the man she’s always loved.  Andrew didn’t die, Kat saved him, but he was forever changed. Learning to live without Andrew in her life has been tougher than she ever imagined, but she did it.  She pulled herself together and has been learning to manage her lethal emphatic gift while learning self defense as well.  What Kat wants to learn next is the truth about her family’s past.  Her mother was harboring a dark secret when she died and Kat aims to find out what it was.

 

Andrew Callaghan lost his humanity fourteen months ago and gained a wolf.  Since the horrible attack that left him changed he has had to learn to live as a shape shifter.  Managing his emotions and his instincts is much harder than he ever imagined.  There is nothing he would love more than to claim Kat but his fear of hurting her has kept him away.  However, when Kat places herself in danger Andrew will do whatever it takes to keep her safe and decimate whoever is out to harm her.  Will the latest threat drive these two into each other’s arms, where they’ve always wanted to be or will it tear them apart forever?

 

Kat and Andrew have one of those unforgettable love stories.  I have been waiting with bated breath for Cipher and I was not disappointed.  Kat and Andrew are two strong characters that have been waiting a long time to find happiness.   Moira Rogers gave them the gut-wrenching story they deserved.  Cipher starts off at a rapid pace and doesn’t let up on the exciting adventure until the last page.  Emotions are high and all over the place as Kat and Andrew are forced together and required to face all that lies between them.  These two have been tugging at my heart for what seems like forever, why stop now?  Cipher gave me the satisfying story I wanted for these two and anted up with a killer plot that never failed to shock and awe.  The Southern Arcana series is sublime and I can’t wait for the next installment!

Ten years ago Steven’s life crashed around him when he found out his lover, Andy, had died in a car crash.  So he is stunned and suspicious when he comes across a man that is eerily familiar and claims to be Andy.  But once he is convinced that this man is his Andy, nothing will stop Steven from claiming Andy again as his own – not even Andy himself!

 

When Andy woke up from a coma to find his body broken, almost beyond repair he was flabbergasted to find out that his lover, Steven, who had professed undying love, walked away from him.  But Andy slowly recovered and his anger at Steven was a great motivator.  So when he comes across Steven again he is still hurt when Steven doesn’t recognize him but also stunned to learn that Steven had thought him dead all these years.

 

Now, to make this work Andy will need to let go of his anger at Steven and Steven will have to work at proving to Andy that his love for him never died.

 

Out of the Past is a heartwarming story about love lost and found, while also proving that true love will survive even after death.  Steven and Andy are men that have been damaged by the actions of their families and the lies they were told to keep them apart.  However, when they come together and choose to forget the past and its hurts in order to build a future, it is a quick, yet beautiful thing to see.  As readers have come to expect Sean Michael delivers a story with well-drawn characters and passion hot enough to singe your fingers.  Out of the Past is a great read full of love and passion perfect for readers who like their romance with a spice of angst ending in the perfect HEA.

Chief Alpha for all of the North American werewolves Armand Le Marche has honored Remy Clavier by naming him as second in command to the North American Council of werewolves.  It is a valued position and one that Remy would love – to refuse.  Remy never lobbied for the job, the responsibility, and the headaches aren’t worth the power he’s receiving.

 

A huge house in Brooklyn has been chosen as Remy’s home base.  The property is large enough for him, his two Betas, and the rest of the staff.  Other homes in the area are also being purchased.  The only work left to complete in Remy’s home is the paint work.

 

Two weeks ago Ian Sullivan lost his father and older brother Billy in a car accident.  On the one hand they were the only family Ian had left, on the other his father’s life long verbal abuse and Billy’s lack of backbone weren’t going to be missed.  They had all worked together in a family painting business and now Ian is alone.

 

With their accidental death and paperwork a mess their wills are in probate forcing Ian to use all his own savings to bury them.  At their funerals he is blindsided by Sal Ferrara, a loan shark demanding Ian pay Billy’s sizeable debts or else he will become the thug’s next bed warmer.

 

Ian’s only hope of a reprieve is to win the bid on a new paint contract.  His world’s been turned upside down already.  Wait till he meets his new client. A werewolf and his mate.

 

The Werewolves of Manhattan series returns to entertain readers with another pulse pounding tale in Remy’s Painter.  Single minded Remy takes one look at Ian and all bets are off.  Skillfully blending a riveting romance with a dark drama Remy’s Painter is a definite page turner.  A realistic vibe within a werewolf framework there’s something for everyone to enjoy.  Remy’s Painter will leave readers hungry for the next book.

FAMILY JEWELS by M. J. O’SheaFamily Jewels by M. J. O'Shea

Corbin Ford is following in the career path of his family as an international jewel thief.  His father was known as the Nightwatchman and never caught.  Corbin’s mother is still pulling off elaborate heists when boredom sets in.  She has no plans to retire at the moment like dear old dad.  Though Corbin has more than enough tucked away he’s not ready to walk away either.  In truth he’s recently resurrected the Nightwatchman to stump the police in Europe.

 

American Luke Eldridge joined Interpol’s Art Crimes Unit several years ago and calls a flat in London home.  Luke’s been assigned to a recent rash of high stakes break-ins all over Europe.  It has all the earmarks of the legendary Nightwatchman, yet there’s no way the thief could be the original after so many years.  He’s dubbed the criminal NW2 and been frustrated time and again because they’ve got nothing to go on.

 

The only positive in his life right now is Corbin.  It was supposed to be a simple hookup after a visit to his favorite gay pub, but day after day the two grow closer.  Neither is aware they are both lying about their jobs.  Luke and Corbin are playing a cat and mouse game of international drama without either being the wiser.  The truth will be a bitter pill to swallow.

 

A rich, intricate drama unfolds in Family Jewels.  Their intimate and detailed storyline will capture and hold the reader from the first page to the last.  Corbin and Luke breathe life into Family Jewels.  Doomed one way or another it’s a fascinating journey to the truth.  Family Jewels has strong, complex characters who honestly love each other and no way out.  Witty and agonizing throughout.   A real page turner.
