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.

Surviving captivity at the hands of humans for over twenty five years Iberian lynx Roland is rescued along with several others   At one time Roland was caged with Vane, a gargoyle.  The lynx was sold to another owner and soon after Vane was freed vowing to one day locate and release Roland.  Vane never expected it to take so long.

 

The clutch of gargoyles in Durango immediately offers Roland sanctuary.  Before he has time to settle into a life of freedom Tobias, the clutch second announces that they are mates.  At four hundred years of age Tobias is overjoyed to find his mate at last and then devastated when Roland rejects him.

 

Roland refuses to saddle the gargoyle with a defective mate.  Tobias however insists they can work through any problems.  As far as Roland is concerned nothing can be done.  Nothing.  He can’t be a mate, ever.

 

Sexual intimacy takes center stage in this sensitive drama.  Roland and Tobias have a major hurdle to deal with in Coaxing His Skittish Lynx, the seventh book in A Paranormal’s Love series.  Triumphing over or solving Roland’s problems is delicately dealt with and proves that intimacy comes in many forms.  Love is of the heart and soul.  Bravo for a tender, light touch.

With time on his side because of a shifter’s longer life span, European Eagle Owl Luc Laurent has joined Kontra’s traveling motorcycle gang.  In part to spend time with his son Tim who’s mated to the big bear shifter and also to see where his own future is headed.

 

A pit stop in Kansas gives Luc the shock of his life when he finds his mate in the human cousin of a newly discovered platypus shifter.  Though the Owl had once loved a woman and fathered a son she hadn’t been his true mate. Dylan Sudderson is.

 

Dylan survived a horrific accident in childhood.  He relies on arm crutches to get around and suffers from periodic weakness and illness.  Recently Dylan learned that his cousin is a shifter and can’t believe that Kai kept something so important from him.

 

The Owl shifter and the injured human feel the pull of mates, yet there is so much against them ever getting together.  Their age difference is an issue for Luc while Dylan hasn’t told anyone he’s gay.  And his parents are rightfully protective after he almost died, his mother excessively.  Nothing will go smoothly for these mates, except their love.

 

Inflexible humans put a damper on romance in Love On an Owl’s Wing. Dylan certainly deserves happiness after all he’s gone through, and for a shifter, finding a mate is all important to Luc’s peace of mind.  The tension levels rise when Dylan pulls away from his parents and towards his mate.  This series is primarily ‘lite’ yet always manages to offer compelling storylines that entertain and make readers think.  Love On an Owl’s Wing is a winner.

Timing is everything and it’s time for Logan McBryne to leave Durango for awhile.  At least long enough for Geoffrey to realize that they aren’t mates.  The construction company co-owner knows about the local gargoyle clutch because of his relationship with the gargoyle, but he knows that he’s not meant for Geoffrey.

 

Logan’s good friend Zander Wheeler has a goat farm in Oregon and he needs help so it’s the perfect excuse to leave.  Arriving at Zander’s home Logan learns that his friend is mixed up with a married man he’s unable to break free from.  What a mess.

 

Their personal issues take a back seat however when they witness a wolf become a man.  Logan knows what’s happened, but Zander freaks out and unfortunately he’s holding a rifle.  In the chaos the stranger gets shot.  Logan knows they’re in big trouble though he doesn’t realize they’ve shot the Tamang pack beta, James Noleander, his mate.  Now it’s a disaster.  And Geoffrey’s in town.

 

Shooting your better half isn’t exactly the way to begin a relationship, right?  Restitution From His Mate is a wild, high octane drama.  Logan tries to remove himself from one destructive relationship and lands head first into another, with his mate.  The last thing Jimmy wants to do is punish his new mate.  The tone is serious and tense, the characters are fascinating, and the plot flows smoothly.  Restitution From His Mate will keep readers thoroughly satisfied.

Rumors of a brutal dingo shifter pack holding human slaves unfortunately proved to be true when a team investigated.  After a savage fight only a handful of the pack and the humans survived the team’s assault.  Wolf shifter Yates Cruner from Stone Ridge is sent to take the traumatized humans to heal within his pack.  Yates is thrilled to find his mate and horrified by the state of his dingo.

 

Half human, half dingo shifter Aryen Fowles was born and raised within the pack as a slave.  Living on scraps and constantly abused Aryen has never had a say in his life.  He’s never even been allowed to go to school.

 

Finding his mate is a reason to rejoice, yet Yates isn’t sure that Aryen even knows of mates or understands the pull between them.  The dingo has a long road ahead of him, but with Yates at his side Aryen will learn the true meaning of love.

 

Harsh reality evolves into a silver lining in Rehabilitating His Dingo.  A tragic life is given a chance at happiness with a wolf shifter mate and the results are pure and sweet.  From a nightmare existence comes great strength and joy in the twenty-third book in the wildly popular Wolves of Stone Ridge series.  Rehabilitating His Dingo has an ugly beginning and a great ending.
