Lindsey Vanessen has a foot in two very different and drastically dissimilar worlds.  He is part of a wealthy human family, and a socialite, but he is also half ,werewolf.  That is a really unusual mixture and because of it, Lindsey has always felt as if he didn’t truly belong in either world. Lindsey has never hidden the fact he was gay and, in fact, is very flashy about it. When someone, or a group of people, started preying on the wealthy families, Lindsey decided to do something about it as only he could.

 

Seth Zakowsy is one tough and hunky cop. He is also one of the cops on the task force to investigate who is kidnapping the wealthy and holding them for ransom. The last thing Seth needs is to be distracted while in the investigation, but that is exactly what happens when he comes into contact with Lindsey during one high-focus kidnapping. Seth is impressed by how willingly Lindsey is to help out his friend, but he also tries to keep him out of the police investigation, which is easier said than done when Lindsey agrees to get Seth into his world to investigate.

 

Lindsey was immediately attracted to Seth, but believed that it was okay because Seth was straight. How wrong he was. Seth is just as gay as Lindsey is and just as attracted. Lindsey is trying to balance his helping Seth,along with a new dating interest. Seth works hard to stay focused on the investigation and not on his building lust for Lindsey. As the investigation goes on, it appears that the investigation is headed in the right direction. But just as Seth and Lindsey both give in to their mutual passion, Lindsey is taken. Now it is a race to free Lindsey, but while the rescue happens, another huge secret is revealed. Can Seth and Lindsey ever find a way to combine their lives, and can Seth accept all of what Lindsey is?

 

A flaming socialite and a hard-nose cop learn that all is fair in love and war in Wolf in Gucci Loafers.  Lindsey uses both his connections and natural attributes to find out just who is attacking and kidnapping the wealthy community. Seth is willing to do whatever it takes to solve this investigation, even if it means getting up close and personal with a community that he has never been a part of. I got a kick out of watching Seth and Lindsey circle each other and loved it when they finally got together.  I was a bit worried if Seth and Lindsey would overcome the huge gaps in both of Lindsey’s worlds and Seth’s, but I should have known that when love is in the mix, it will always come out right. I really loved all that was involved in Lindsey’s rescue. Wolf in Gucci Loafers is a tale of greed and passion with compassion and friendships just when they are needed. I really hope to see more of the Harker pack in the future, so I can see what has happened to the pack members I have come to love.

A series of fortuitous circumstances brought human nurse Leroy Wilde into the world of gargoyles and shifters.  Since the gargoyle in charge of the mansion’s clinic hasn’t mated yet it is Leroy’s responsibility to handle any medical situations that come up during the daylight hours.  Most nights he’s working at the nearby human hospital, so it’s a lot of hours and little sleep with no end in sight until Perseus finds his mate.

 

Rescued after close to two decades of captivity boa constrictor shifter Caladon O’Hara is reveling in his freedom within the sunny arboretum at the gargoyle’s mansion.  The gargoyle clutch has assured Caladon that they will be able to track down his human wife and their son Taolma.  He was captured when his son was a toddler; it’s hard to imagine that Taolma has grown into a man without Caladon able to watch the changes happen.

 

The bliss of freedom almost pales in comparison to bumping into his human mate at the mansion.  Leroy can’t deny feeling the ‘mate pull’ for Caladon, yet past experiences remind him that his family will do anything to stop their son from dating a non-white.  Learning that Caladon is married and has a grown son simply adds to an already difficult situation.  Untangling this mess will take some time, patience, and love.

 

Accepting Caladon’s Scales proves to be one obstacle after another for well meaning human nurse Leroy.  Brought into the paranormal world by fate Leroy accepts life at face value, including his family’s issues with his boa constrictor mate Caladon.  Raised by bigots, it is Leroy’s moral strength and Caladon’s love that make this story work out so well.  Enjoy Accepting Caladon’s Scales for the positive, loving message it sends.

Labeled the ‘black wolf’ at the Feline Coalition Kiplin relished the unflattering moniker.  After surviving an abusive bitch of an aunt while growing up it was time to have some fun and if it irritated others, well Kiplin could live with it.  As a solider it was his job to put down the bad guy by any means necessary as far as he’s concerned. Too bad others didn’t think he fought fair.

 

Recently Kiplin was reunited with his younger brother, one of the lost shifter children.  The differences between the siblings is almost comical with Kiplin living on the edge, caustic at best and his little brother Kyle a strictly by the book studious guy.  At least Kyle has a mate to keep him safe and happy which is more than Kiplin ever had.

 

Panther shifter Brody left his pack after discovering what the Alpha and his cronies were up to.  He figures it’s only a matter of time before the old pack catches up to him.  With the help of his cousin North he’s joined the Feline Coalition where Brody’s been told that his IT skills are badly needed.  Wrestling with a way to tell his new commander the secrets he learned while adjusting to a fresh start Brody comes in contact with the last person he expected to meet. Kiplin, his mate.  Watching the soldier and the computer geek together is proving highly amusing for everyone at HQ.

 

Emotional issues take center stage in Kiplin’s Coming Out.  The characters are easy to empathize with and the plotline flows with authentic action and humor.  Kiplin’s feelings of isolation, his inadequacy in dealing with a brother, and finally his fears of messing things up with Brody combine to make Kiplin’s Coming Out an emotionally charged story.  Another truly entertaining tale with the Lost Shifter family.
