THE SOLDATI PRINCE by Charlie CochetThe Soldati Prince by Charlie Cochet
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: Fantasy, MM

Closing up the coffee shop one late evening Riley Murrough is confronted by two men in black who morph into smelly, gooey globs.  As he’s screaming in his head and running for his life three men and a woman appear and morph into huge tigers that destroy the two gooey guys, as well as others who’d joined the nightmare party.

 

Next thing he knows tribal tattoos appear on his arm and the non smelly foursome are talking about Riley being the destined mate to their king.  Riley is introduced to King Khalon and his Soldati soldiers Rayner, Ezra, and Adira.  Unfortunately it’s the unfriendly, arrogant member of the group who is supposed to be Riley’s mate.

 

Obviously it’s a mistake of major proportions.  There’s no way an Immortal Soldati King could be mated to a human according to Khalon.  He insists on taking Riley to their home, which is in another magical dimension to straighten out this mess.  Their priestess will be able to release the human from a wrong destiny.  Otherwise the demons will continue going after him to weaken Khalon.

 

Remove the tattoo and Riley can go home – none the wiser.  That’s the plan.  Well, it’s a plan.  Getting to know each other along the way won’t change anything.  Right.

 

The Soldati Prince presents a seriously enjoyable opposites attract love story.  Sassy Riley and stick in the mud Khalon slowly warm up in this imaginative plotline.  Entertaining dialogue works well in the tense, well drawn tale.  Moments of high danger followed by witty humor briskly moves The Soldati Prince along.  Edge of your seat drama and a sneaky twist at the end will prove The Soldati Prince’s worth.

Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: Fantasy, MM


 

A millennium ago the five most powerful angels gave up their lives in order to save the three realms from their dreaded enemy Asagoroth, the great dragon demon who promised to destroy them all.  History records the destruction of Asagoroth.  However, they were only able to imprison the great dragon.

 

The angel Trystan is surrounded by his people day and night, yet lonely beyond words.  At birth he was called Unchosen.  With no chance of career or relationship few bother the shy angel.  In truth his parents pretend Trystan doesn’t exist and his older siblings ignore him.  Only his sister Annalise spends time with her little brother.

 

Bullied and forgotten Trystan loves to spend time in the Center Garden.  Harassed by others yet again, Trystan accidentally discovers a hidden well with an intricate dragon carving.  A mystery to be solved, Trystan inadvertently sets in motion a pre-ordained situation.

 

Lies and bigotry rush forth as the angel and the freed demon search for a safe home in the cosmos.  As they try to stop history from repeating itself their one chance may already be gone.

 

An excellent twisting tale of fate and destiny is revealed in On Wings of Thunder.  Author M.D. Grimm pens a story of acceptance, redemption, and love in equal measure.  Absolutely riveting, On Wings of Thunder is a timely tale of forgiveness absolution.  Trystan and Asagoroth battle racism of heavenly proportions.  Excellent visualizations, exciting storyline, and moral issues to ponder.  A great page turner.

Lord Etan, the younger brother of Duke Cathal and cousin to the monarch of Tournai, spends his days assisting Prince Phillip and his consort, Prince Amory.  When he’s not working for them he uses his time researching in the Palace library.  Many subjects fascinate Etan, in particular the family bloodline’s special and secret Talent.  Etan has plenty of spare time since the man he gave his heart to will never be within reach.

 

Prince Amory has known Tristan since childhood and he became a regular fixture in the palace after Amory’s marriage to the Prince.  Introduced to Lord Etan they quickly became fast friends, but everything changed when Tristan’s father took ill.  Suddenly the young man was expected to run the family’s extensive businesses.  What was harder to bear was his father’s insistence on arranging a marriage for his son.

 

Reluctantly agreeing to the wedding Tristan lost his father soon after and then months later his young wife died in childbirth.  Through it all Tristan missed his friendship with Etan, never realizing why the young lord had backed out of his life.  Faced with a newborn daughter and a busy career Tristan is nonetheless incensed when his mother insists he remarry and father more heirs.

 

Trying to juggle everything Tristan made time to visit his old friend and began to see Etan in a new light.  He found that Etan gave him the strength to cope.  Dealing with his mother was becoming more and more difficult, but that was nothing compared to the discovery that his infant daughter has been kidnapped.  Together Tristan and Etan will find baby Bria and uncover a secret plot intent on destroying them all.

 

Author Antonia Aquilante takes readers back to the lands of Tournai, to the loves and the lives of some singularly special, Talented people.  Rich in detail and well developed characterizations, The Scholar’s Heart is an emotionally fraught romance true to the previous books.  Etan and Tristan allow others to carry them forward until finally, they take the reins and the responsibility.  Weaving several plotlines within the story everything ties together by the exciting climax.  Fans will love their return to Tournai. This series should be read in order to fully appreciate the characters dynamics.  Dive into The Scholar’s Heart where mysteries, engaging characters, and an excellent storyline can be embraced.

In childhood Kisin Bey and Razin were the very best of friends, sharing adventures and mischief in equal measure.  As they grew into men everything changed.  Friendship evolved into something much deeper though neither were strong enough to say the words.

 

Prince Kisin Bey accepted his responsibilities and became the Captain of the Immortal Guard for the next ruler of Pansan, his sister Ceren Beygum.  As for Razin his gifts were revealed and became the apprentice to the palace wizard.

 

During training exercises in the mountains Kisin made a wish.  With the appearance of an all powerful Pari, the strongest of wizards, his wish was granted.  Unable to handle the yearnings he felt Kisin wished his heart away.

 

Three years have passed since that fateful meeting.  Where his heart once beat and kept his body warm ice now forms.  In essence the prince is dying and won’t last another winter.  Apathy has replaced emotion.  Kisin no longer cares whether he lives or dies.  But someone does care and he will do everything possible to save his prince.  Razin will find the Pari and make Kisin whole once more.

 

The Winter Prince is a rich blend of fantasy, unrequited love, and drama.  Prince Kisin and the wizard Razin take readers on an angst ridden adventure where moments of happiness are few and far between.  This unique story is laid out somewhat like an old fashioned fable with detail and imagination.  For Kisin and Razin, love is truly blind.

Tournai is a peaceful thriving country ruled by Prince Phillip and his consort Prince Amory.  The recent birth of their son Prince Julien has solidified the family succession.  Known for their exquisite glassmaking, as well as other talents, the Prince is well aware that the Emperor of Ardunn who has gobbled up other small countries has his eye on Tournai.  There is no question spies from Ardunn are somewhere close.

 

Cousin to Prince Phillip and son of Duke Umber, Lord Cathal finds himself in a precarious position.  He loves his royal cousin and has always been a dutiful son, but his father’s recent announcement has left Cathal speechless.  Duke Umber has contracted a marriage between Cathal and Lady Velia, cousin to the Emperor of Ardunn, without Prince Phillip’s knowledge.

 

When Lady Velia’s ship arrives with her aunt, uncle, and her poor relation Lady Flavia, the entourage is invited to stay at the Prince’s residence in the capital city of Jumelle.  Cathal is ready to bite the bullet so to speak and marry Lady Velia, yet there is something about Flavia that intrigues the lord.  He can’t quite put his finger on it, but she’s far more interesting than his betrothed.  Between his confusion over his bride to be, Flavia, and uncovering the spy ring Cathal has his hands full.  He’s about to get quite a bit more than he bargained for…

 

Author Antonia Aquilante pens a lush blend of romance, drama, and sensual tension with The Artist’s Masquerade.  Readers plunge into a rich fantasy with captivating characters and a dynamic plotline.  A good deal of suspense adds another layer to the fascinating story.  Enjoy unraveling the mystery of these characters in The Artist’s Masquerade.  Just the right amount of humor finishes it off perfectly.
