Happiness had lost all meaning for diamondback venom Striker.  His parents were murdered before his eyes and then for endless months he was tortured by a pack of crazed anti-venom.  A last ditch desperate attempt at freedom is won with the aid of strangers.


Broken inside and out it takes everything within Striker to even touch his saviors and mates, spider wasp TL and fire ant Rio.  As for his two mates they can’t believe after so many months together that they have been blessed with a third mate.


An unlikely alliance between a fire ant colony, anti-venom, spider wasps, and a host of others means relative safety for them all.  They learn through rumors that Venom City’s corruption is spreading so it’s time for the alliance to take a stand.  The risk of death is worth the chance of a permanent, safe home for everyone, including Striker and his newly discovered mates.


The wild adventures of the Venomous Mates violently erupt in The Strike of the Diamondback.  Scarred within and out, tortured Striker struggles to regain his footing in this emotional drama.  This very imaginative tale fascinates with the human and venomous cast of characters set within a near future Earth.  Tensions mount, lovers scramble for poignant moments and all hell breaks loose in The Strike of the Diamondback.  Dark entertainment at its best.

Decades in the past scientists released a toxin over the human population.  The results were horrifying.  Many died.  Most who survived mutated into what became known as venoms, a human venomous hybrid.  A very small percentage was untouched and labeled anti-venoms.  Each subsequent generation has passed down their original DNA.


The time for action is here.  Factions of venom and anti-venom have united to retake Mission Territory.  Banded together they have a chance to reclaim their homes and gain a foothold from a powerful enemy.


Arriving at nearby Point Loma before the fight they are met by platypus shifters who’ve made the area their home.  Their leader Flex agrees to house their children and non-fighters.  They can stay there in safety as long as Prescott, an anti-venom also stays behind.


Recognizing Prescott as his mate the platypus shifter’s only thought is to protect him.  Unfortunately the anti-venom doesn’t see it that way.  He’s furious.  Flex doesn’t know that Prescott has been a warrior for his own little group for years.  Prescott is fully capable of fighting.


They may be fated mates but they are also strangers.  Who will take the first step?  Gracefully give in or defy destiny.


This sexy series strikes again.   In the fifth installment of the Venomous Mates series, The Spur of the Platypus matches a fun loving shifter with a prickly human mate.  The character driven story focuses of Flex and Prescott’s rocky romance rather than the battle to come.  Their love story flames and burns bright.  The Spur of the Platypus is a spicy addition to a unique, entertaining series.  Enjoy the mates as they emotionally combust.

It is Christmas, a time to celebrate at the Moon Compound.  It is also Daegal’s first Christmas.  Apparently the holiday isn’t celebrated in Hell and the Hellhound is yet again feeling completely out of his comfort zone.  Knowing that the day is making his mate Oren happy is all that matters to him.  Tomorrow they will join a team to find lost teen wolf shifter Alex and a pack’s missing children.  Today Oren will share the joy of Christmas with his mate Daegal for the first of many years to come.


A slice of the holiday season is thoroughly enjoyed in A Hellhound Christmas.  Tender romance is not a part of the Moon Compound series, yet in this seventh book readers share in the Christmas spirit with Oren and Daegal. The mates experience the holiday together, hopefully the first of many before gearing up for a dangerous mission.  A Hellhound Christmas is a delightful moment of complete loving clarity.

Of all the wolf packs in the area twins Sascha and Cass grew up in the absolute worst for brutality and intolerance.  What the other packs didn’t know was that the alpha had made a pact with their enemy, the Hellhounds.  Cass was forced to work for them in order to protect Sascha, their younger brother and the children of the pack.  When Cass had to leave for Moon Compound prior to his shifter change Sascha was left alone and vulnerable.


Ready to accept death rather than live through another beating Sascha is saved when the guards from Moon Compound rescue him.  Ironically it is his future mate Malach who arrives on the scene at the right time.


Fate graces Malach with a second mate in Sascha.  Losing his first mate almost destroyed him.  This time he will ensure that his mate survives, though it’s plain to see with all his scars that Sascha’s already lived through hell.  Malach’s abused mate will need to learn that live is worth fighting for.


Pain and anguish.  A complicated existence.  Full Moon Delta stacks the deck against Sascha and Malach.  They prove their strength in this dark tale.  The sixth installment in the Moon Compound series is chock full of complex emotional turmoil.  Their story is a tribute to overcoming a tragic past.  A bold drama, Full Moon Delta excels at telling a different kind of love story.

Reviewed by Lisa

A Birds of Prey five man warrior team is dispatched to Atlanta by their benefactor the goddess Athena to battle with the Blood Demons, spawn of the Keres death spirits who seem to be gaining in numbers.


Patrolling at the nearby college campus one night the teams second in command, Hawk comes across a student fighting for his life against a Blood Demon.  Badly injured in the fight Aaron expects to be taken to the hospital by the stranger who saves him, yet once Hawk spies the birthmark on Aaron’s chest and feels so inexplicably drawn to him all bets are off.


It is Athena who has insured that her Bird of Prey receive a true mate at some point in their long lives.  Finding Aaron is only the beginning they are told.  Their mates are both a reward and a reason to continue the fight.  And now they have learned that each mate will bear the symbol of Athena as a birthmark.  Of course, explaining this to Aaron and hopefully getting him to accept Hawk will take some fast talking.  Better get started.


Authors Jackie Nacht and Stephani Hecht breathe life into an original new Birds of Prey series where mankind is protected by immortal warriors of Athena.  Hawk’s courtship begins with blood and guts and ends with loving Aaron.  A somewhat dark plotline with fearsome enemies, Saved by the Hawk is a refreshing beginning.  Featuring life and death encounters and intense characters this is one edgy drama.
