Jeremy Porter and Owen Finn grew up with very different home lives, yet that never stopped them from being the best of lifelong friends.  When Jeremy’s parents found him looking at male nudie magazines at fourteen they disowned him and shuttled him off to an alcoholic aunt.  Owen on the other hand spent his childhood in the arms of loving parents and a houseful of siblings.

 

Both found success in their chosen fields, Jeremy as an acclaimed cartoonist and artist while Owen started his own construction company.  As adults they are also known for their prolific sex lives.  Ironically Jeremy got a name for being bisexual rather than gay.  His best friend is well known as a one night only ladies man.

 

With all the literal notches on his bedpost Jeremy never slept with the one person he truly wanted, Owen.  He refused to make any advances in fear of destroying their friendship or the love of the Finn family.

 

Then, out of the blue on Owen’s thirty-fifth birthday he arrives on Jeremy’s doorstep and backs his best friend into the corner with sexual advances.  Believing it’s a one-time event Jeremy relents.  Their one night of incredible passion changes everything between them.  Owen wants more.  Jeremy fears of losing what he treasures most in life if they continue, yet Owen is fulfilling every dream he’d ever had.  Which way can he turn except into Owen’s open arms? But for how long before everything crashes and burns?

 

Curious will absolutely make your toes curl.  Such passion and emotion blaze as Jeremy finds himself between a rock and a hard place trying to realize he can have it all with Owen.  If he finds the strength that Owen has.  Author R.G. Alexander knows exactly how to write an honest, sensitive erotic love story.  The pages burn with such heat and the emotional drama rings true.

Centuries were spent ruling the Realm of Blessed Creatures and in all that time demi-god Spiro Manos never realized his brother’s pet jaguar Sema was his mate.  In all fairness no one could’ve guessed that the beautiful cat was actually the all powerful Nialo transformed by his mother, the goddess Gaia to protect him.

 

Months ago the bite of a vampire somehow allowed Nialo to begin remembering that he wasn’t simply a jaguar.  Knowing he is Spiro’s mate means nothing however if he is stuck in the form of a cat, unable to ever consummate their bond.

 

The current state of affairs cannot go on indefinitely between the mates with Spiro and Nialo pinning for each other and no way to join. Nialo seeks an audience with Gaia who offers a solution.  He must destroy his brother Morwyn, at one time his conjoined twin and the reason their mother changed him so long ago.  Confronting Morwyn he must travel to the underworld, Tartarus which is dangerous in itself.  To find love and bond he must destroy his other half, literally.

 

Author Carol Lynne shares an incredibly vivid imagination with readers in Royal Blood the fourth book in Neo’s RealmRoyal Blood triumphs with a rich blend of fantasy, drama and romance.  This world is filled with characters from Olympus as well as vampires, fae, and shifters.  There are no boundaries with these characters.  Excelling in pulse pounding action and adventure too, Royal Blood smartly weaves an indelible love story.  One caution, this series must be read in order to truly enjoy and understand.  Royal Blood neatly ties up the last major romance in Neo’s Realm to perfection.

Growing up in southern California Noel Cuthbert and his siblings wanted for nothing financially with famous Hollywood parents.  They were lucky to receive emotional love from their Aunt Gertie who left her life in Montana to raise Noel, Josie, and River.  Once they’d grown up and began adult pursuits she returned to her home.

 

One of eleven siblings Jody Bates grew up in small town Texas.  He was the son of a strict Pentecostal preacher and a submissive mother. Jody played the role of fitting in, always knowing that if the truth came out he might not survive the outcome.  As a teen he snuck out occasionally until that one awful, horrible blood filled night he can’t piece together made him run.  Jody was only sixteen.

 

Recently fate and time brought Jody and Noel together in Ashville Montana.  Jody works at the Mossy Glenn Ranch and receives the shock of his life when his sister dumps a two year old named Priscilla or Prissy on the ranch hand and says he’s been named the father.  As for Noel he arrives in Ashville to stay with his Aunt Gertie to escape a pointless life in L.A. and an ex-boyfriend who almost damaged his body and soul beyond repair.  Neither young man wants to start up a relationship when their personal lives are in turmoil, but the heart wants what the heart wants.  From the moment their eyes meet in town they want.

 

Rustic charm, homey companionship, and hot sex to enjoy in Riding and Regrets.  Author Bailey Bradford pens a refreshingly complicated, sassy drama.  The fifth installment in the popular Mossy Glenn Ranch series can easily be read as a standalone story.  Jody and Noel have issues, emotional and otherwise, watching them deal with everything and make their lives better is what Riding and Regrets is all about.  Enjoy the ride without regret.

Mixed breed leopard/puma shifter half-brothers Adal and Steven grew up under their brutal, tyrannical leopard shifter father Bashuan.  They would bear the scars he or his men inflicted for the rest of their lives.  Older brother Steven chose to take the brunt of their punishments to protect his tenderhearted little brother.

 

Sent to Denver on a forced shifter retrieval mission the brothers finally make the decision to break free.  Steven leaves to confront and kill Bashuan in order to prevent repercussions to Adal and his newly discovered mate, a human mechanic Dorso Rodriquez.

 

Unfortunately Steven attacked Dorso before the brothers saw a way free.  It’s not the best beginning to a mating between virginal Adal and Dorso.  The human has to deal with hopefully forgiving Steven and accept that shifters exist.  It certainly doesn’t help that Dorso has a hell of a headache from Steven.

 

If Dorso can deal with everything he’s being told maybe, just maybe he can take it slow and easy with Adal because the shifter is sick.  The pills his father lied to the brothers about and made them take are making them sick.  If they can’t get help for the damage that’s been done Dorso won’t have to worry about a mate for long.

 

It is the healing of mind and body, the struggle to find value in one self through the eyes of love.  Take heart in Adal’s story of Hide.  There’s humor and sizzle, sass and sorrow. Adal and Dorso have a rough start in Hide.  No argument.  Love shines through in this imaginative and emotional romance

Guarding a tipsy wedding party from the capitol of Breckenride to the town of Denmerra, Axel Blackwood was doing his best to watch out for trouble though his thoughts and eyes kept wandering to another in the group, Liam Alloway.  For as long as he could remember Axel has known that Liam is the only one for him. Secretly Liam’s feelings are exactly the same for Axel.  But with negative social acceptance they could never be together.

 

Rounding a deeply wooded area the group is attacked by Threeves.  The scourge of humans everywhere Threeves are evil woodland folk who persist in causing problems such as thievery and sometimes worse, death.  During the assault Liam is captured and taken by Threeves.  Later remains are found near the spot where he was seized and identified as Liam’s.

 

Seven years have passed since that tragic day.  Axel’s been promoted to a full Constable and works with Deputy Drummond Alloway, one of Liam’s older brothers on a regular basis.  Axel continues to grieve daily for his lost love and funneled his anger into learning white magic from a powerful witch in order to fight the Threeve.

 

Tasked with taking an expensive gem to a neighboring lordship the Constable knows they are being followed and sets a magical trap.  Catching the thief is relatively easy, acknowledging that it can’t be Axel’s lost love something else entirely.  The thieving Threeve is the spitting image of Liam, but how could that be possible?  He says he’s Bryn Darrow, half Threeve and half human, except he isn’t even sure about his past.  So many questions and so few answers.  Someone is setting them up for a mighty fall.  Axel would do just about anything to have Liam back, but pretending Bryn is his love?

Unraveling this mess and finding the guilty will take every bit of Axel’s skills in magic and the love in his heart for the man he lost so long ago.

 

To Catch a Threeve is an emotionally fraught original drama.  Each character comes to life within the story, Axel’s sorrow at the loss of his love, Liam’s joy of life, and Bryn’s anguish over his mixed feelings and questionable identity. There’s also a great adventure in To Catch a Threeve which brings another entertaining layer to the tale.  And finally the plot twists for the icing on To Catch a Threeve.
