A man-made virus was released during the Vietnam War killing hundreds of thousands.  Scientists created a vaccine to protect what was left of humanity.   But there was an unexpected side effect, a mutation altered a percentage of the human race creating Therians.  Humans with animal DNA capable of shifting.

 

Eventually a special elite military force was created to protect all citizens, regular humans and Therians alike.  The teams were comprised of a human and a Therian partner matched for every THIRDS team operation.

 

Human Dexter ‘Dex’ Daley is partnered with team leader jaguar Therian Sloane Brodie in a THIRDS unit.  They are also partners, lovers at home.  They have made the ultimate commitment.  Sloane has Marked Dex as his own.

 

The last thing Dex remembered was going to bed with Sloane.  He wakes up tied to a chair.  Somehow he was snatched from his bed and from Sloane.  His kidnapper is a charming and deadly wolf Therian who systematically beats and tortures Dex for information about his long dead parents.  They supposedly died in an accident, but listening to the Therian convinces Dex that he needs to rethink what he was told.

 

Meanwhile Sloane and his team are tearing the town apart for information on the kidnapping.  Finding Dex alive is all that matters.  The kidnapping of Dex sets into motion a chain of events no one saw coming.  Peeling back the layers of his parent’s lives Dex and Sloane are faced with truths that will affect them and the future of all human/Therian lovers.  No one saw this coming…

 

Book seven in the popular THIRDS series literally explodes onto the pages in Smoke and Mirrors.  This is a taut, deadly tale.  Suspense builds as mysteries unfold while Dex and Sloane search for clues in the drama.  An incredibly imaginative alternate reality comes to life in Smoke and Mirrors.  New readers will definitely struggle at times with the large cast and all the tech jargon, etc.  Luckily there is a glossary provided at the beginning.  Any stumbling is worth it.  Smoke and Mirrors is an extremely satisfying romance with twists and turns galore. Absolutely addicting.

POWER BOTTOM? by Rowan McAllisterPower Bottom? by Rowan McAllister
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: Contemporary, MM


 

What started out as a romantic weekend picnic for two somehow became a moment of truth followed by a breakup.  It left Adrian Walnak wondering what the hell went wrong.  He’d arranged a perfect day with his live-in boyfriend Martin, which Adrian thought went well until his car broke down and he had to brave a biker bar to call for a tow.  Getting hit on was the highlight of the weekend because when they finally got home Martin admitted that he found Adrian boring.

 

Years of working at Pacciano Bros. construction company as an accountant left Adrian with a solid sense of order, money in the bank, and a less than exciting lifestyle.  Apparently, Martin liked the financial aspect of their relationship much more than their sex life.

 

Riding the emotional highs and lows of his breakup Adrian gets himself worked up and drives back to the bar and the stranger who offered a drink the following weekend.  His rash decision works in Adrian’s favor as he and Wyatt Everett immediately hit it off.  As the weeks pass Adrian continues to see Wyatt and meets him at a small motel.  It’s completely out of character for the accountant, yet he’s having the time of his life with the sexy biker.

 

Great sex on the weekends and strange goings on at work has become Adrian’s life for some crazy reason.  It’s beginning to feel like everything is out of his control.  The last straw for Adrian is when Wyatt reveals his true identity quickly followed by goons chasing them through the woods and Feds at Adrian’s door.  Talk about a change of lifestyle.

 

A staid existence evolves into a whirlwind that never seems to end in Power Bottom?  Nice guy Adrian hears a less than glowing personal critique which proves the impetus for a major change in this humorous drama.  Lover Wyatt has his own issues to deal with, but he’s the absolute best person for the fragile, insecure accountant.  Their chemistry is both spirited and lusty.  Problems at work for Adrian possibly twist with Wyatt’s past, which brings another dimension to the plotline.  Thoroughly entertaining, enjoy Power Bottom? This is an all around skillful blend of love and mayhem.
