Wolf shifter Logan St. Clair lost his place within his pack by attacking the new Alpha and his male Alpha mate.   Though influenced by others, homophobic attitudes could no longer be tolerated and therefore Logan is forced to leave.  He is taken into Kontra’s biker gang to learn the error of his ways.

 

The biker’s make a pit stop to visit with other shifters and their human friends on the road.  During the visit Logan realizes that fate does indeed have a sense of humor after sensing his mate in the group, his human male mate.

 

No matter how hard Logan tries to fight the pull it doesn’t stop him from wanting college student Tyson Grubler.  The wolf has come a long way from his past attitude, but asking him to take a male mate is pushing things.  Everything comes to a head however when someone else moves on Tyson and Logan makes a serious error in judgment. Now it’s up to Logan to come clean to the bikers and hope that Tyson will forgive and accept him, fur and all.

 

A bad attitude and a multitude of mistakes color an eventful romance in Wooing His Wolf.  After everything that Logan does wrong it is Tyson’s love that soothes the wolf in their exciting storyline.  Kontra’s Menagerie adds another unpredictable tale to their series with Logan and Tyson’s inspiring love story.  Wooing His Wolf starts out with a combustible match and goes supernova.  What fun!

Let’s be honest.  The O’Shea clan has a well earned reputation of barely staying on the right side of the law.  On paper Calvin and Cheryl are in charge, but everyone knows that eldest son Tommy’s been keeping the family together since he was a teenager.  He’s taken care of his seven younger siblings while his drug addicted father and stepmother skate in and out of their lives.  Even the twin babies Max and Zoe are more dependable than their parents.

 

For the most part the cops in town look the other way when one of the O’Shea kids earn money in a less than legal way.  Everyone knows that Tommy and his siblings are doing the best that they can to stay together as a family.

 

Officer Bobby McAlister and his partner are forced to make an appearance at their house one day because of Cal and Cheryl’s latest drug induced antics.  From that day onwards the cop and the slightly shady O’Shea begin a quietly hot and heavy forbidden relationship.  Having Tommy as a boyfriend might ruin Bobby’s career before it’s even really started.

 

Life has never been easy for the O’Shea family.  Tommy has carried the burden for years.  Bobby doesn’t mind sharing the weight because he’s falling in love with the skittish young man.  The guilt of possibly ruining Bobby’s life is eating at Tommy. But neither can walk away from a love beating so strongly for each other.

 

The Last Thing He Needs is to lose out on true love.  A cop and a sometime con man are the worst and best of matches in this enchanting story.  Such grit, real life drama, and familial love in the plotline prove that The Last Thing He Needs has heart.  The characters come alive, they feel authentic.  Their battle to stay together through adversity will have readers cheering them on.  A thoroughly worthwhile read!

From most anyone’s perspective Will Ashford has it made.  The son of a very successful businessman, Will is SCU’s starting quarterback with the head cheerleader on his arm and a business degree only a year away. His best friend is SCU center Jamal Jones so social diversity isn’t a problem.  What more could he want in life?

 

If Will answered honestly he’d say that he wanted out from under his father’s control or away from his alcoholic mother.  Above all else, Will would shout to the world that he’s an artist, a damn good, gay artist.  He just has to keep repeating his mantra of ‘one more year’ whenever his resolve slips, which is unfortunately happening more and more often.

 

On the quiet Will applies for the Milton scholarship which would cover all the costs for art school.  He’s taking a course by renowned artist Dwight Masterson with the hopes of getting a recommendation from the man.  At the first class he meets Noah Zajack, an orphan whose life is the complete opposite.  A skilled artist as well, Noah is also hoping to win the Milton.

 

No matter how hard Will tries to hide his true sexuality, pretending to be something he’s not, his feelings for Noah make the lies harder and harder to swallow.  Juggling two lives becomes a nightmare.  Something has to give before there’s nothing left of Will.

 

Secrets have a way of coming out at the worst possible moment.  Just ask Will as his life implodes in Outing the Quarterback.  Feeling his angst, his attempts to hold on literally bleed off the pages in waves.  Surprisingly, even with all the drama and chaos in Will’s life the humor and romance come through loud and clear.  The characters are compassionate when they need to be, dark when necessary, sexy too.  Cheer on Will and Noah.  They deserve to find their own little piece of heaven in Outing the Quarterback.  Will’s battle is worth the effort of breaking free.  I Joyfully recommend Outing the Quarterback for being a truly entertaining tale of triumph.

One of the newest members of Kontra’s biker gang is Alpha Diego Tamang.  The three hundred year old wolf is hoping to find his mate as he travels the country with the other shifters.

 

Stopping for lunch in a small rural town Diego is thrilled to scent his mate in a little diner.  Apparently that is the only easy part for the wolf because his mate is considerably younger and his mate’s mother is noticeably protective, perhaps even overprotective.

 

Getting Zachary Young to agree to a bit of time together takes some maneuvering, but in the end the two are able to meet for a lovely picnic.  The next step will be revealing what Diego and the others are.  Then there’s the little matter of getting Zach to shift without him having a nervous breakdown.  Hm…

 

The world opens in a most unusual way for one young human in Soothing the Zebra’s Fears.  Another member of Kontra’s Menagerie finds true love with fate’s kind assistance.  A sweet, loving naïve Zach is matched with weary, honorable Diego.  Sparks fly and tender mating follows.  Some exciting twists in the plotline ensue to ensure that Soothing the Zebra’s Fears entertains everyone.  This series is always a pleasure.

Woodspring Manor Entertainment boasts a bevy of sexy studs in their pornography movies.  Among their stable of stars are Gabriel Knightly and Johnny Depth who are best friends in real life and pretend partners for their fans.  They started doing porn purely to make a living without any shadows in their past.  A recent addition to the roster is Lithium.  His story is unfortunately too common, disowned by his strict Mormon family when he came out and turning tricks to survive until he found the porn industry.

 

The very first time Gabriel, aka Gael Torres and Lithium, aka Liam Barton film a scene together they realize that something is different.  Afraid to name it anything more than basic chemistry the two take things slowly until the day Liam suddenly disappears.

 

Panicked and desperate Gael finally located Liam with the help of his best friend’s computer skills at a Utah ski resort.  Whatever scared Liam so badly that he ran doesn’t matter to Gael so much as knowing that he’s alive.  Arriving at Solitude Gael digs deep for every ounce of patience he has.  Liam may not think much of himself but Gael is certain that their feelings are real and worth fighting for.  No matter what the problem is.

 

A romance that twists at every turn, Solitude shines brightly with love and compassion.  Authors Martin and Fielding pen a fascinating look at the pornography business from two very different viewpoints.  Gael enters the world willingly and happily while Liam’s introduction is very much more abrupt.  From his hideout at Solitude to filming a ‘scene’ Liam holds his secrets close to his heart.  It’s pure entertainment to watch Gael chip away until he is allowed to protect his lover’s tender heart.
