Professional nanny Hutchison Sparks feels as though he’s walked into a war zone when he meets a new prospective client and family.  Years of experience with caring for families is clearly desperately needed by the large Conklin clan.

 

Three years ago the Conklin siblings lost their parents in a tragic accident.  The eldest son Adam is a budding academic at the nearby college.  Middle of the pack are Briony a high school senior and Charlie a few years behind.  Next follows the ‘littles’ – Darla who will start first grade and the twins Elizabeth and Felicia barely four.

 

In a small apartment on a strict budget Adam managed to keep his overflowing family together.  He relied on their mother’s best friend and his mentor, Professor Helena Hunter, for moral support and occasional help until her recent death.  She’s left the Conklins her large estate and a huge bucket of money. Adam would trade it all to have Helena back in their lives again.

 

Having enough money to hire Hutch is certainly a godsend.  It’s going to be a huge adjustment for everyone though it’s easy to see that the family needs the added stability.  Even Adam, who’s still reeling from Helena’s death could use a shoulder occasionally.  Over time Hutch realizes he’s falling in love with Adam and his family.  Keeping a professional arms distance will only last so long…

 

Completely enchanting.  A loving, lovely tale.  And Manny Makes Seven absolutely falls under the ‘feel good’ romance heading.  There are realistic family situations, issues and troubles from nasty boyfriends to a case of food poisoning.  Adam and Hutch’s romance unfolds naturally within the confines of this delightful heartwarming story.  An easy, breezy good read, And Manny Makes Seven hit’s the spot.

Rye Sommers specializes in long time private protection.  He’s a hardcore bodyguard for those who can afford his skills.  The longer the job the better as far as Rye is concerned.  His latest employer is none other than the Vampire King himself, Lord January.

 

Well, technically it’s his manager Donna Heard who hired Rye because Lord January or LJ is fresh out of rehab after eight months.  A nasty wake-up call after his heart stopped twice sent the pseudo vampire king for help.

 

LJ comes home a frail, painfully thin, and fragile twenty something who desperately wishes to return to the relative safety of rehab where no one expects him to be Lord January.

 

The bodyguard’s first interaction with his client isn’t promising.  It is abundantly clear the singer has given up on life.  Nudging and cajoling barely works. Getting LJ ready for a world tour is going to take every ounce of Rye’s skills.

 

As the days slowly pass Rye sees the man behind the façade, Jeff Smart a lost and lonely soul with a gift that’s killing him, body and soul.  Falling for Jeff is so unexpected which is why the bodyguard cherishes the feelings he has for his broken love.  As for Jeff he finally has someone who’d rather be with him and not Lord January.  Too bad the rest of the world doesn’t feel that way.

 

Incredibly poignant and sensitive.  Guarding January rocks.  Multi-talented author Sean Michael pens a powerful tale of morals, foibles, and heart.  Rye is a straight arrow who loves a lie, a ghost.  A careful, calculated act turned Jeff into a false god who’s crumbling under the weight.  Their story is an intensely private romance.  Guarding January digs deeper and deeper into the human spirit and comes out swinging.  Feisty, sizzling, and ultimately satisfying.

Everyone at the Hammer is talking about the new bakery in the neighborhood, the Beat and Cream with all its lovely treats, delicious and decadently styled baked confections.  Known for his sweet tooth it is only a matter of time before Master Zeb has a taste or two.  No question the baked goods are delightful, however what really interests Zeb is the owner and baker, Storm.  He is absolutely edible.

 

With so many customers from the Hammer Storm has heard a thing or two about the BDSM lifestyle, though he’s not interested in knowing more personally.  Their instant attraction changes everything as Zeb introduces Storm to the joys of submission. Hopefully, before long Storm will love the lifestyle and his Master.

 

Chalk up another sizzling tale for the Hammer series in Cream.   Lovers Zeb and Storm are featured in a gentle introduction to the BDSM lifestyle.  Cream is ‘lite’ on props and heavy on steamy, sweaty encounters.  Enjoyable characters are set within a pleasant storyline that is packed with sexcapades galore. Lighter on plotline than usual, nonetheless Zeb and Storm are engaging and educational.

A traumatic past experience taught Luke to beware trusting anyone in a sexual situation.  Some might think it ironic that he picked such a personal career as a piercer with his aversion to sex, yet Luke manages to keep the two separate and runs a successful tattoo and piercing shop with his best friend.

 

When a stranger enters their shop at closing time Luke is taken aback by the electric handshake they share.  Temple Garrison believes that fate is telling them something and invites the quiet piercer for a meal.  Luke listens as Temple tells him of his fight against cancer and his strong belief in letting bad energy go, being positive.  He’s in town for a five year check up, to see if he’s finally beaten the disease.

 

Taking things slowly, Temple doesn’t pressure Luke sexually which gives the piercer the courage to begin to let loose.  As the days pass and they wait for the test results Luke and Temple continue to explore their sexual compatibility and feelings of love.  Finding out if Temple is free and taking that last step together means the world to Luke.  Thank God he opened the door at closing time.

 

Fierce trauma to the heart and the body are intertwined in this emotionally empowering and sensual story.  Prolific and incredibly talented author Sean Michael skillfully blends eroticism with heart and soul in The Piercer’s Game.  Luke is missing out on a vital part of his life until Temple walks through the door and gently, persistently shows him what he’s missing.  The Piercer’s Game is packed with sexual situations, absolutely chock full. Temple’s cancer gives the storyline emotional depth.  Their developing relationship gives The Piercer’s Game heart.  No need to read previous books in the series to enjoy this one, but they are all good too!

Everyone is expected to attend Pack meetings and moon lit runs.  Everyone is expected to show themselves to Alpha Boston and the Alpha mate Lindsay at the meetings.  One young wolf shifter is not acting appropriately.  Trevor is blowing off meetings and runs and good manners towards the Alpha.  He wants nothing to do with the Pack.

 

Well aware of Trevor’s attitude Alpha Boston elects his brother-in-law Dirk to show the young pup the error of his ways.  He will lead Trevor back to behaving properly within the Pack.

 

Trevor doesn’t yet realize he’s met his match until it’s too late.  By the time Dirk finishes training the young shifter Trevor will be a model member of the Pack.

 

Smoking hot tale.  Obedience Classes showcases a relentless, patient Dom taking charge of a stubborn, proud submissive and all the ensuing fireworks one would expect.  There is a fine line in this story between forced sex and consenting ‘play’ which teeters one way or the other at times in Obedience Classes.  In the end Dirk and Trevor’s relationship does have a satisfying conclusion though it is a harsh, rough journey to get there.
