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.

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.
