Series: A Paranormal's Love #17
Published by eXtasy Books Genres: MM, Paranormal

At a hundred and thirty the gargoyle Sumak is ready to leave kitchen chores behind and become a guard at the mansion his clutch calls home.  Granted the opportunity by Chieftain Maelgwn the young gargoyle is walking the perimeter of the estate when he spies a human jogging on a trail. Sumak is almost overcome with desire when the jogger’s scent hits him.  The gargoyle has found his mate, yet Sumak knows it’s absolutely the wrong time to explain their relationship.  The most he can do is help the human with his car trouble in a roundabout way.

 

Unable to introduce himself while in gargoyle form Sumak at least is able to memorize the human’s license plate.  He realizes the fates are indeed watching over him because Sumak’s mate is Andre Capston, whose estranged brother Mace is mated to another gargoyle at the mansion.

 

Before the gargoyle can figure out a way to meet his mate Andre has talked his two best friends and college roommates into spying on the estate and look for his strangely dressed late night helper.  What the three humans see is something they never expect.  Explanations are definitely in order – once they calm down.

 

This humorous storyline is a great addition to the A Paranormal’s Love series.  Readers will be tickled with The Gargoyle’s Running Back from start to finish.  Engaging characters easily draw the reader into their bumpy and entertaining romance.  Embrace Sumak and Andre as they work their way towards a happy mating.  Love doesn’t tend to be easy, but definitely worth the effort in the long run as Sumak and his mate discover in The Gargoyle’s Running Back.

After a bad breakup, Detective Jim Crawford left Philadelphia for a fresh start in a smaller city.   It’s an added bonus that nobody in New Cynwood knows his family is extremely wealthy.

 

The town is being terrorized by a serial killer whose victims thus far have nothing in common.  Heading the task force Jim has been wracking his brain trying to come up with an angle that makes sense.  So far he’s got nothing.  The next step is to talk to a professional and get some insight before the killer strikes again.

 

Bartholomew ‘Barty’ Halloran was a skinny nerdy kid growing up, never fitting in, never part of a group.  Finding his passion as a criminal psychologist gave purpose to his life and he’s good at it.

 

When the detective enlists Barty’s help the doctor is eager to add his expertise.  Fascinated with the case Barty begins to become uncomfortable because the more he learns about the killer the more Barty can draw a parallel to his own life.

 

As they gain ground on the case the stakes suddenly change when Jim realizes the killer has set his sights on ending Barty’s life.  Protecting the doctor becomes the detective’s first priority.  Keeping Barty close causes a whole new set of problems as the attraction between them flares to life.  Catching the killer comes first, keeping Barty a close second.

 

A sharp whodunit is revealed in Playing with Fire.  Solid characterizations bring this murderous story to life.  Jim and Barty are intelligent, career driven, and alone.  Their relationship quietly slips into being as they chase a killer.  Barty’s concerns, his similarities with their foe add to the storyline.  Unmasking the killer happens quicker than figuring out what draws Jim and Barty together.  Definitely enjoyable unraveling the romance that is Playing with Fire.

Forest ranger Gabe Rice left a full-time position and a promising career at another posting for the chance to work his dream job in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Six years on and he’s still a part-time ranger forced to make ends meet with a second job at the Estes Park book store near where he lives.  It all boils down to working for a homophobic boss intent on making his job so difficult he quits.

 

At one time Luis Martinez had everything a man could wish for with a successful career as a therapist, a supportive family, and a loving husband by his side.  The California dream came crashing down the day Chris died.  Inconsolable he sold his business, packed and headed for the Colorado Mountains where he used his savings to buy the Estes Wilderness Lodge.  Knowing nothing about managing a lodge or tourist trips into the mountains Luis was barely functioning, but at least nothing reminded him of Chris and the love they shared.

 

Talked into a touristy campfire excursion by a fellow ranger, Gabe is surprised by his attraction to the cook.  It’s been a while since he’s been interested in anyone.  What he finds is a damaged soul, yet Luis intrigues him.  For every step forward they are forced to take two steps back.  For this relationship to work they will need to lean on each other.  Trust is a two-way street.

 

Mapping the Forest takes the main characters on an extremely emotional journey where every lesson learned brings up new obstacles to overcome.  One deals with workplace bigotry and the other a lost love.  Gabe and Luis slowly learn by trial and error that battling their demons together is what strengthens them.  The couple definitely makes mistakes, lots of them before getting it right.  Love and patience are the answer for these characters in Mapping the Forest.

It’s official.  The pre-wedding week at Lake Tahoe is going to be the death of Chad.  Somehow his loving sister Lindsey has turned into a crazed bridezilla.  She’s the one who insisted on this family get together.  The final blow to Chad’s peace of mind is learning that Lindsey’s long time friend Raudel Cruz is able to make the wedding and the Lake Tahoe madness.  The same Raudel who Chad secretly lusted after all through high school and one night saw Chad do something he can never, ever live down.

 

Ironically, as much as Chad was embarrassed to see Raudel again the opposite is true for Lindsey’s BFF.  He’s thrilled to see Chad, all grown up, no longer a boy forbidden to him.

 

As the get together devolves into a daily nightmare the one consolation is putting the past to rest, allowing Chad and Raudel the time to discover what the future could hold.  If they survive till the wedding ceremony it’s going to be a miracle.  Getting Lindsey to the alter is the insurmountable goal.  Finding love is a wonderful bonus.

 

Hilarious pre-wedding jitters, a scary bridezilla, and so much more are rolled into the wild tale Honeymoon Their Way.  Readers are given a bird’s eye view to all the chaos.  The storyline merrily bumps along, balancing the zany family actions with a newfound love.   Chad tries to keep everything moving forward.  Meanwhile Raudel shows them the patience of a saint.  Honeymoon Their Way is crazy fun.
