Nicknamed ‘Cowboy’ for the boots and hat he favors Hugh MacPherson has worked at UNLV as an assistant track coach for the past five years. An itch that couldn’t be scratched has grabbed hold, so during a semester break in school Hugh books a tour to the land of his ancestors in Scotland.

 

A small time forgotten castle is home to Laird Graeme Guthrie.  The significance of his home are the Pictish standing stones within the castle grounds.  Periodically Graeme allows a group of tourist to invade his home and gaze at the stones as a way to keep the taxman at bay.

 

Coming to Scotland, exploring his roots Hugh is looking for something he isn’t sure of.  As for Graeme he has a long standing responsibility to his home and a legend taught down the ages to each laird of the Guthrie stones.  Fate brings them together at the winter solstice to fulfill a destiny kept waiting long enough.

 

Kindred spirits are joined in mystery.  An American greenhorn lends a hand to a Scottish laird in need in Cowboys and Kilts.  A dangerous puzzle unfolds for the fated lovers to explore and ultimately find answers.  Each piece of the mystery slowly comes to light, but unfortunately the answer is somewhat anti-climatic.  Cowboys and Kilts features engaging characters, smoldering passions, and a mystery that isn’t as great as Hugh and Graeme’s romance.

College student Kai Sudderson and his friends are enjoying the summer before school starts up again.  A large pond system nearby is the perfect place for Kai to relax and swim in his platypus shifter form.  His human friends have known for years that he can transform into a platypus, his aunt and uncle who raised him are unaware of what their nephew can do.  It was hard enough for them to accept that he was gay, never mind tell them he’s a shifter.

 

Taking a dip in the pond Kai becomes snagged in a beaver trap.  He’s all alone and unable to shift without causing further damage and tiring quickly.  Just when Kai becomes desperate for help he is saved by a small penguin shifter.

 

After the rescue he’s excited to meet a whole group of shifters.  Kai has never met anyone like him before and even though his human friends are the best it’s great to find other shifters.  One in particular fascinates the college senior, Dorian Yaris.  Kai doesn’t understand the significance of mates, yet he feels a strong pull towards the older shifter.

Life is about experiencing new things, Kai and Dorian have only begun.

 

Leave it to author Charlie Richards to come up with another enjoyable Kontra’s Menagerie storyline filled with interesting, flawed characters.  Kai is an unusual shifter type yet he’s got human friends who love him and a brand new life with his mate Dorian.  His human family offers additional tension and issues to work through.  Educating the Platypus features intriguing challenges and a great deal of fun.

He should have died during the fight with the Horde.  The hellhound should have torn him apart, but he didn’t.  Oren survived, never expecting that his fight with the hellhound Daegal would change them both in ways no one saw coming.

 

Maybe their exchange was meant to be.  If not for Daegal’s assistance Oren’s friends wouldn’t have been able to escape captivity after being kidnapped.  Only with the hellhound’s aid did they survive and get home, bringing their savior with them.

 

What do they do now with a hellhound at the compound?  Their sworn enemy in their midst?  Oren hates the bond they share from biting each other.  Daegal hates feeling emotions for the first time in his life.  He doesn’t know how to deal with them.  Both in pain, neither giving ground.  Their suffering cannot continue.  Taking the first step to forgiveness is up to Oren.  One step at a time.

 

Tense, gut wrenching emotion is a constant in the high octane tale Full Moon Hellhound.  Deep sorrow and angst flavor this edgy drama from start to finish.  The mental battle between Oren and Daegal is all encompassing, only when the sometimes insurmountable issues are resolved does their sexual battle begin.  Full Moon Hellhound concentrates on two damaged souls who shouldn’t stand a chance.

The airborne toxin was released seventy-five years ago, apparently without thought to what the long term consequences would be for the human race. Those that lived fell into two vastly different camps.  Most took on the physical attributes of venomous creatures which passed on to any progeny.  A small percentage remained human.  Called anti-venoms they are hunted down for the healing powers of their blood.

 

Born with the additional DNA of a King Cobra snake, Kalder rules Venom City with an iron fist.  His two lieutenants are the only men he trusts, especially after the recent death of his brother Killian.

 

Living by their wits Reese and his friends are slowly starving to death.  So desperate that Reese attempts to find food in the outskirts of Venom City.  Quickly discovered by Kalder the King Cobra takes pity on Reese and allows him to leave with food.  Brought together a second time Kalder realizes that he’s found his mate and he will do whatever it takes to keep his anti-venom safe.  The tables are turned however when it’s up to Reese to save Kalder.  But, will he?

 

Author Jackie Nacht invents a complex, unique world with Intoxicated by the King Cobra.  This brutal, unflinching time period is complicated and fearsome for everyone in one form or another.  Frightening creatures with human souls fight for survival.  It’s even dangerous for Kalder to show a softer side to Reese.  An intriguing premise. Intoxicated by the King Cobra is a terrifying tale with heart.  And fascinating.

Veterinarian technician Carlton ‘Carl’ Donahue absolutely loves the job he does at San Mirabal Zoo, especially when he works with the big cats. The only downside to his career choice is the extreme allergies he deals with each and every day.

 

What the zoo considers a male cheetah in the enclosure is actually Zyl, a Were-Kind.  He is there at the zoo to investigate rumors that a protest group plans to stage an intervention by letting the wild creatures free.  That would be disastrous for the public and animals on so many levels.

 

When Carl and Zyl cross paths all bets are off, the magnetism is instant.  They will need each other’s help to divert a disaster and Zyl is certain that he can help Carl with his allergy issues in a way the human never expects.  Human, Were-Kind, and protestors are about to clash.  Secrets will come out and lives will change forever.

 

Catastrophe pops with excitement and mysteries.  Carl is stunned by one surprise after another, personal and professional.  Zyl is an enigma until Carl breaks through.  A fast, energetic read, Catastrophe is simply and perfectly entertaining.
