Deke Sommers is on the run.  The thought of succumbing to his boyfriend Michael’s insistence on participating in ménage sex was enough to make Deke flee.  Contacting his best friend Dirk Lemans, he is sent to Stone Ridge, Colorado where Deke will be safe on pack lands.

 

Settling in Deke comes across wolf shifter Luther Caldwell at a poker game one evening.  The human’s feelings are mixed.  He’s definitely attracted but the wolf is straight and raising a teenage daughter.

 

Seeing Deke again sends Luther into a tailspin.  The human is his mate, yet Luther has always shied away from his desire for men in the past and there’s his daughter to consider.  How will she feel about him with a male mate?

 

As the pair try to figure out their feelings for each other Deke’s problems with Michael return to haunt them both.  Danger has come again to Stone Ridge.

 

Drawing Out his Wolf takes fated mates on a perilous journey.  Deke faces several harrowing adventures as Luther is forced to face his future, with or without a mate.  Author Charlie Richards keeps the Wolves of Stone Ridge series fresh and engaging in the unbelievable 25th installment.  Deke and Luther’s mating proves there’s no end of excitement for this shifter series.

A series of fortuitous circumstances brought human nurse Leroy Wilde into the world of gargoyles and shifters.  Since the gargoyle in charge of the mansion’s clinic hasn’t mated yet it is Leroy’s responsibility to handle any medical situations that come up during the daylight hours.  Most nights he’s working at the nearby human hospital, so it’s a lot of hours and little sleep with no end in sight until Perseus finds his mate.

 

Rescued after close to two decades of captivity boa constrictor shifter Caladon O’Hara is reveling in his freedom within the sunny arboretum at the gargoyle’s mansion.  The gargoyle clutch has assured Caladon that they will be able to track down his human wife and their son Taolma.  He was captured when his son was a toddler; it’s hard to imagine that Taolma has grown into a man without Caladon able to watch the changes happen.

 

The bliss of freedom almost pales in comparison to bumping into his human mate at the mansion.  Leroy can’t deny feeling the ‘mate pull’ for Caladon, yet past experiences remind him that his family will do anything to stop their son from dating a non-white.  Learning that Caladon is married and has a grown son simply adds to an already difficult situation.  Untangling this mess will take some time, patience, and love.

 

Accepting Caladon’s Scales proves to be one obstacle after another for well meaning human nurse Leroy.  Brought into the paranormal world by fate Leroy accepts life at face value, including his family’s issues with his boa constrictor mate Caladon.  Raised by bigots, it is Leroy’s moral strength and Caladon’s love that make this story work out so well.  Enjoy Accepting Caladon’s Scales for the positive, loving message it sends.

Freed from the cage he spent eight months trapped within and from the drug confining him to his rat form, shifter Paolo Muccio is grateful to the Stone Ridge pack for giving him his life back.  Their hospitality includes staying with the pack until he can locate his own family and friends.

 

A relaxing evening playing cards with his new friends yields a far greater reward when Paolo finds his mate at the poker game.  Imagine wolf shifter Jamie Stratton’s surprise in discovering his mate after three hundred years, at a card game.

 

It seems as though once again fate has made a perfect match.  Paolo’s dominant personality meshes well with the absolute submissive he see’s in Jamie.  But Paolo is quick to identify that all is not well with Jamie so he tells himself to take things slow.    Unfortunately a quietly spoken remark is misunderstood and sends Jamie running before Paolo can explain.  With Jamie missing there’s no way to straighten out this mess.

 

Temperatures rise as mates Paolo and Jamie give in to passion in Trusting His Rat, the 24th book in the popular Wolves of Stone Ridge series.  An honest mistake, a poorly timed comment, and the new lovers are torn apart before the bed cools.  Fans will fall in love with Paolo and Jamie, as well as enjoy renewing contact with characters from previous books while new readers are sure to get hooked into Stone Ridge.  A clever blend of hot, hot loving on top of digging oneself out of a verbal hole.  Trusting His Rat is sheer entertainment.

As penance for his role in attempting to steal from Glarzy, his baby brother Thom’s bonded dragon, the highlander Ciendon McDoffrey will work in the valley’s farmland.  Working with farm animals and in the fields is a better alternative than their elder brother Ronin’s fate; he died during the aborted robbery.  The dragon Paigon is put in charge of Ciendon’s rehabilitation and shows the highlander more patience and care than anyone ever before.

 

When they realize that Ciendon is an asda like Thom, someone who can bond with a dragon, the Circle of Elders elect various prospects to woo the highlander.  Though it has only been a matter of days since he began his penance under Paigon’s guidance Ciendon is worried that he will get in trouble with the Circle of Elders because he’s already beginning to fall in love.  Choosing a stranger over the dragon he’s given his heart to is an impossible feat for the reformed thief.

 

A human rogue receives his comeuppance in the arms of a loving dragon in For a Dragon’s Forgiveness.  Ciendon is the big, brawny victim of a cruel brother’s abuse whose shy soul unfurls from Paigon’s tenderness and praise.  A clever blend of innocence and steamy hot loving makes For a Dragon’s Forgiveness a very pleasant way to pass the time.

College student Kai Sudderson and his friends are enjoying the summer before school starts up again.  A large pond system nearby is the perfect place for Kai to relax and swim in his platypus shifter form.  His human friends have known for years that he can transform into a platypus, his aunt and uncle who raised him are unaware of what their nephew can do.  It was hard enough for them to accept that he was gay, never mind tell them he’s a shifter.

 

Taking a dip in the pond Kai becomes snagged in a beaver trap.  He’s all alone and unable to shift without causing further damage and tiring quickly.  Just when Kai becomes desperate for help he is saved by a small penguin shifter.

 

After the rescue he’s excited to meet a whole group of shifters.  Kai has never met anyone like him before and even though his human friends are the best it’s great to find other shifters.  One in particular fascinates the college senior, Dorian Yaris.  Kai doesn’t understand the significance of mates, yet he feels a strong pull towards the older shifter.

Life is about experiencing new things, Kai and Dorian have only begun.

 

Leave it to author Charlie Richards to come up with another enjoyable Kontra’s Menagerie storyline filled with interesting, flawed characters.  Kai is an unusual shifter type yet he’s got human friends who love him and a brand new life with his mate Dorian.  His human family offers additional tension and issues to work through.  Educating the Platypus features intriguing challenges and a great deal of fun.
