Playboy, naughty boy dingo shifter Farron got into hot water with Fate herself because of his less than exemplary behavior.  As penance Farron is charged with matching up mates and goes by the ignoble name of Fairy Fuck Father.

 

Ben grew up in the foster system with a group of boys who became his best friends.  A rare Caracal or desert lynx shifter, Ben is lucky that his human friends couldn’t care less what he is.  If only loneliness wasn’t such a close friend as well.

 

Tasmanian devil shifters are known for their dominant, territorial way.  Unfortunately for Mason he is a born submissive and lives through years of abusive behavior before he is able to flee home in the trunk of a car.  Somehow along the way he briefly came in contact with his mate though they never actually met.  Mason didn’t bond with his mate, doesn’t know who he is, and he’s dying because of it.

 

Popping in to do his job Farron’s latest match isn’t going so well.  Frustration, problems, no co-operation at all.  He’d rather another hole in his head than call on Fate, but it looks like he doesn’t have a choice with this pair of shifters.

 

Charm, humor, and a twist of sadness for balance, Paws, Claws and their Triple F covers all the bases.  Shed a tear for laughter and another little one for sorrow with Farron, Mason, and Ben as they try to make love their priority in this fast paced story.  A truly wild and wacky adventure.

Blowing up his home with his parents inside was something Lucas will never live down even though it was a complete accident.  If that wasn’t horrible enough, Lucas is then picked up by humans and taken straight to a Warlock Internment Camp even though he was only fifteen at the time.

 

Ten long, tortuous years in the ridiculously termed ‘rehabilitation camp’ and Lucas is slowly, painfully dying from neglect and starvation.  The only thing keeping him going is Charlie, a childhood friend captured two years ago who’s also dying there.  They manage to keep each other from completely losing hope, but soon it won’t matter.

 

Lucas and Charlie are in such desperate straits that when help comes they don’t even realize it at first.  Members of the resistance, free warlocks, break into the camp and liberate everyone.  Among the group is Andor, a fighter and a doctor who can’t believe the state of the prisoners.  It’s questionable if Lucas and the others will even heal.  If they do it’s a long road and after meeting Lucas there’s nothing Andor won’t do to help the young warlock, nothing at all.  Mending a broken body is one thing, a shattered soul something else entirely.

 

Author Stephani Hecht pens an exciting, emotional drama in Warlock Unbound, book two in the Detroit City Warlocks series.  The character’s sense of desolation and sorrow comes though so well.  His lack of belief in himself and uncertainty in Andor’s love is sometimes overwhelming.  A positive outcome in Warlock Unbound makes all the angst worth wading through in this story.  Lucas and Andor deserve all the happiness they can hold onto.

In the years after war irrevocably changed the Earth the city of New Seattle lived under a seemingly permanent black cloud.  Divided into levels, the wealthiest and most powerful living highest at Cloud Level, mid range became Metro Level, and the poorest barely surviving at Bottom City.  Those condemned to the outlaying ruins didn’t last long.  People were classed into family Triads such as the Dragons or Phoenix at the top and trickled down into other named groups from there.  Forced to rely on vitamins and supplements because the sun is never seen, the wealthiest are the healthiest.

 

Twins Castor and Pollux Kovalenko are Dragons, cousins of the Dragon Triad leadership.  Not involved in their families politics or power plays the twins spend their time dealing drugs and entertaining the rich.  When their cousin Lynx, son of the family boss, goes missing Castor insists on making inquiries.

 

The more Castor digs the more mysteries are uncovered.  It seems that Orion, son of the Phoenix leadership is also missing.  Fate then drops a clever pickpocket into Castor’s arms.  Jaffa Sharp is annoyed and impressed that Castor caught him, but when all is said and done the two discover that working together leads to important answers.  What they find makes Castor’s life a total farce.  As their world falls apart the only thing real is what a powerful Dragon and a lowly pickpocket feel in each other’s arms.

 

Rising Sun is an emotionally fraught drama.  Twists and turns vie with mysteries and revelations throughout Rising Sun.  This new world has a fascinating hierarchy where strength doesn’t equate to designated level.  Castor and Jaffa couldn’t be more different until righteous integrity comes into play.  A thrilling plot, great characters, and the hope for a better future shines in Rising Sun.

The St. Louis Fire Foxes are on a winning streak thanks to the hottest find in the NBA, Tyler Haley.  Signed straight from high school, the big, blonde kid’s talent has made the young team steadily raise over the past few years, right to a shot at the championship.

 

Recently retired from years of active duty sucking up desert sand Captain Eric ‘Ram’ Ramos takes a position as Haley’s assistant.  According to team owner Mrs. Brady the kid’s previous employees spent more time screwing each other and his girlfriend than doing their jobs.  It’s ironic that part of the reason he’s hired is because he’s gay.

 

Though Ram is far from a psychology degree it’s patently obvious to him that Tyler is starving from a lack of basic kindness and decency.  Years in the foster system and a loss of identity left Tyler thirsting for someone to care about him.  Ram feels an empathy he never expected for the lonely young man.  He can tell that something is going on with Tyler as well.  Their relationship is evolving into something far more than friendship and neither wants to stop it.

 

Author Dawn Douglas delivers an emotionally charged tale of love in Fire Inside.  Their romance is seductive in a quiet, genuine, slowly developing manner.  Straightforward, no nonsense Ram connects from the first with awkward, naïve Tyler.  It’s a joy to witness their relationship grow.  Told in first person point of view by Ram there’s some truly snarky dialogue that adds depth to their story.  Seriously touching, Fire Inside gives heart and hope to their love.  Only problem is that it ends.
