Eighteen months without a fix.  Simeon ‘Si’ Helms is clean for the first time in a long, long time.  After jail Si had to join Narcotics Anonymous.  It was one of the best things he’d done for his recovery and he’d lucked out with a sponsor who cared when Si was struggling.  It really helped to have someone like Kip in his corner, a guy who only wanted Si to stay sober and clean.

 

The last thing he expected to see was a picture of Kip plastered on a billboard advertizing the newest action star, Kipper James.  Friends get tickets to the premiere and Si is humbled when Kip spots him in the crowd.  According to Kip he never forgot Si and now that they aren’t in NA maybe they can get together.  It could be dangerous for two ex-junkies to fall in love or the best thing in the world.

 

Between Love and Hate lays the emotional journey of a lifetime.  The main characters have been to hell and back, dealing with critical addictions.  A story of the human spirit and the chance at redemption is simply told by Si and Kip.  Gentle souls triumph in an easy, entertaining plotline.  Cheer for a pair of characters in Between Love and Hate.

Ethan Gallagher is thrilled to be attending the sci-fi convention his brother is putting on and his excitement has nothing to do with the twenty dozen cupcakes he’s making for the event.  Rather, Ethan’s looking forward to finally taking the next step in his burgeoning relationship with astrophysicist and convention panelist Callum MacLaughlin.  And it’s not just his own love life Ethan’s going to fix this weekend.  Ethan’s got a few special cupcakes that will make his brother and best friend’s dreams come true.

One part cupcakes, one part sci-fi conventions, and two parts sexy heroes are a recipe for a delicious story.  Ninja Cupcakes is a fast and fun romance that’s as sweet as the cupcakes Ethan bakes.  The chemistry between Ethan and Callum is palpable, making it easy to root for these two to get their happily ever after.  What I found most engaging about Ninja Cupcakes was the way T.A. Chase handled Callum’s blindness.  There were little things Ethan and Callum did all throughout the story which added realism to this aspect of Callum.

While I did thoroughly enjoy Ninja Cupcakes, I do wish the story had been a bit longer.  I didn’t feel I got to know Callum as well as I would have liked.  I also had questions about the mystical element at work with Ethan’s cupcakes.  With a bit of expansion, Ninja Cupcakes could be a phenomenal story.  As it stands, I thought it was quite charming and I look forward to re-reading it.

Lovers for centuries, Mordred and George's relationship is strong enough to withstand anything-or so they thought. With dragons and magical creatures appearing every day, George risks everything, even to the point of losing his lover, to maintain the balance between the Realm of Dreams and the human world. Mordred can see George slipping away and, for the first time in his long life, insecurity creeps in. As the presence of old lovers, new friends and deadly dragons causes cracks in their foundation to form, Mordred and George must discover how far they're willing to go to save their love and their world.

Even though the Goddess Gaia forbade the elf Mordred and his lover, the immortal dragon slayer St. George, from interfering they felt compelled to help the humans.  They’re unable to ignore the human’s fight against the wild creatures from the Realm of Dreams appearing all over the Earth causing destruction and death. 

Human scientists Dr. Hugh Price, owner of Anglelow Labs and his lover Dr. Kael Hammerson head the group on Earth trying to deal with the situation.  Thus far it’s a losing battle, as many creatures as they destroy more appear.

Mordred and George hatch a plan.  They know the creatures come from their home, that Beowulf is orchestrating the invasion, but without proof Gaia refuses to become involved.  George will continue the fight on Earth while Mordred infiltrates the enemy camp.  Beowulf has always wanted Mordred, maybe now’s the time to be caught?

Dreaming of Dragons revisits the imaginative world of monsters and myths come to life on Earth and threaten human existence.   The first book focused on the scientists, this time out Mordred and George take center stage.  One is slippery and charming and the other is honesty personified, lovers eternal.  Exposing the villains is the goal but along the way there’s a sexy, loving romance with lots of enchantment and shine.  An absolutely passionate tale of daring heroes with an ending that will take your breath away.

Running away because his Master refuses to take his blood or sleep with him, Sven is nonetheless dragged back home to await his owner’s pleasure. He ran because he didn’t think the Master cared and doesn’t want him to see how close to the surface his own feelings are.  Brought home Sven is surprised and concerned to learn of Master Andor’s health problems.  After all who would believe that a vampire could become ill?

It must remain a secret as long as possible that Andor is sick.  Something is slowly leaching his strength and his sight.  The only logical explanation is that someone is somehow poisoning his human herd.

Sven believes the only reason Andor had him retrieved was because of his untainted blood.  He doesn’t know that the centuries old vampire truly desires the young human but doesn’t know how to express his feelings.  It’s been so long since Andor dealt with his feelings he’s now out of his league.  Convincing Sven that he’s worth more to him than a blood source may be beyond the Master.  Regardless, time is running out for Andor and Sven to be together. If he dies the new Master is sure to cull the herd of past favorites.

Emotions run high when a Master and his human’s love are threatened in Out of Light Into Darkness.  A powerful vampire is brought low by intrigue and love, his savior comes in the form of a naïve, uncompromising young man.   Miscommunication is the biggest stumbling block for the pair when one has forgotten the art and the other has yet to learn how.  Out of Light Into Darkness offers a pleasurable romance, good drama, and a bit of mystery to the mix.
