Series: Argeneau Vampires #25
Published by Avon Genres: Paranormal

Twenty five books in to the Argeneau series and it doesn’t looking like Lynsay Sands will be stopping any time soon. If you have followed the series religiously like I have you know the past few books in the series had the focus on immortals that were being kidnapped and the rogue hunters are getting to the bottom of where their people are disappearing to. Immortal Unchained picks up with that plot but now the rogue hunters are disappearing one by one while searching for the missing immortals and the counsel not only wants to rescue their own but put a stop to what else is about to come.

 

Domitian Argenis is heading undercover as a personal chef to find the missing rogue hunters when he is kidnapped. The evil doctor has plans for him but he has no idea what to expect when he finds himself chained up naked in the basement of a house on a deserted island. The only good thing about this turn of unexpected events is that his life mate is stranded with him. He has been waiting since Sarita was 13 years old to claim his mate but of course he wanted her to live her life, grow up and experience the human side of the world before he introduced himself. Now that his plans have moved up not only does he want to claim her as his but also make sure she stays safe. Sarita might be a police officer and can handle herself but she is in his world now and it’s about to get dangerous and more interesting.

 

Sarita has been in Venezuela for 3 days and has yet to lay eyes on her grandmother which is the only reason she has returned bringing back the bad memories of her mother’s kidnapping and death. After receiving a call that her grandmother took a fall she rushed to help her. While checking out the grounds she is currently staying on she comes across a lab where she finds out vampires are real but before she can ask more questions she is knocked out and wakes up alone in a house with no way out. She comes across a vampire all chained up and even though she might not understand them she knows she has to help him get free and find out what really happened to her grandmother. It’s not going to be easy but with Domitian at her side she feels they have a chance. Will they make it out of Venezuela alive and will the people they love be rescued or will they fall victim to the evil doctor that has them cornered?

 

Immortal Unchained was a delightful yet darker read from the previous books in this series. Ms. Sands usually brings plenty of humor to each story yet this one was missing that and to be honest I really missed her sense of humor. I did enjoy revisiting with some of my favorite characters such as Bricker and Lucian while they were out to find their family and friends. As far as the romance went, it was a little fast for my taste, and I thought Sarita would have put up a little more resistance on being a life mate to an immortal but she really took everything in her stride.

 

Immortal Unchained was dark, fast paced and kept me invested all the way through. In the end I felt the story was going to be wrapped up but it looks like Ms. Sands is sending her readers on another journey soon and for that I am grateful. While Immortal Unchained could be read as a standalone, I wouldn’t suggest reading it unless you’ve read the prior three books where the mystery behind the immortal disappearances start. And if you have yet to meet the Argeneau family you are missing out on really amazing characters that will surely capture your interest from the beginning.

THE GREAT UNICORN HUNT BEGINS by Stephani HechtThe Great Unicorn Hunt Begins by Stephani Hecht
Series: Little Monsters #2
Published by eXtasy Books Genres: MM, Paranormal

A unique family of various paranormals is living at an abandoned insane asylum.  Their leader Bronson is a Spring-Heeled Jack who recently found his mate Nixon, a Brownie.  The family was forced to defend their home when Nixon was threatened by an old enemy.  Thankfully life is getting back to normal, or at least their version of normal.

 

At this year’s annual Villain’s Ball immortal knight William and his half-sister Lliassa, a half human, half gorgon, listen to the announcement by an elderly vampire offering one billion dollars to whoever captures and delivers a unicorn.  Every time William looks at the picture of the last known unicorn he feels a strong need to protect and defend the blonde man.

 

Everyone at the asylum is appreciative of Charlie’s skills in the kitchen.  For the most part none of them had had it so good as far as home cooked meals until Charlie joined their quirky family.  It looks like their smoothly running home is going to get more upheaval as Charlie receives a warning that there’s a bounty on his head.  His life and that of his new family will be put at risk.  If he stays Charlie knows his new friends could die, which is the last thing he wants.  He has to leave to protect them.

 

An entertaining story from beginning to end, The Great Unicorn Hunt Begins will delight readers.  Inventive characters are given humorous dialogue to carry them through a totally bizarre plotline.  The results are a romantic screwball comedy of sorts.  Book two in the Little Monsters series continues with an oddball pairing of lovers.  Side step reality and enjoy the world of these characters in The Great Unicorn Hunt Begins.

THE BEAR WHO LOVED ME by Jade LeeThe Bear Who Loved Me by Jade Lee
Series: Grizzlies Gone Wild #1
Published by Forever Yours Genres: Paranormal

Maximus or Alpha of the local bear shifter clan Carl Carman is a natural at the job although there are certainly days he’d rather be doing anything else.  Working with the kids at day camp is one enjoyable adventure after another.  Dealing with belligerent bear shifters refusing to abide by clan rules is a total pain in the ass.   Some days it just doesn’t pay to be the boss.

 

Becca Weitz is completely oblivious to the clan of bear shifters in their midst.  Running a successful bakery in town Becca is also responsible for raising her teenage nephew Theo.  She doesn’t know that the camp Theo attends is a way for him to learn about his heritage without humans being involved.

 

When Theo goes missing Becca is told to alert Carl, which seems odd to say the least.  Beyond worried about her nephew it doesn’t make sense that she feels so drawn to the camp leader.  The baker is about to get an eye opening introduction into a world she believed to be simple fantasy.

 

Dealing with the crisis and her feelings for Carl is a tall order for Becca.  As they search for the missing teen, the Maximus learns that two wolf shifter boys are also missing from the local pack.  Something, someone is after shifters and it’s Carl’s responsibility to uncover the truth and bring Becca into the clan, as his mate.

 

The Bear Who Loved Me blends a tender romance with an action packed mystery and the results give readers a riveting adventure.  Issues with stubborn bear shifters, a missing teen, and a mate who completes him keep Carl busy indeed.  It’s all in a day’s work for a sometimes overwhelmed Maximus.  Tensions rise with an unknown foe and a sweet love story blossoms.  Thoroughly entertaining, The Bear Who Loved Me is a wonderful start to a new series.

SWAYING THE MARINE’S LOYALTY by Charlie RichardsSwaying the Marine's Loyalty by Charlie Richards
Published by eXtasy Books Genres: MM, Paranormal

Sergeant Armand Zeroni had barely been back to base forty-eight hours after a grueling deployment before the strangest thing happened.  Armand awoke in a bed he didn’t recognize, in a room he didn’t know.  Even crazier was finding General Jackson Parker tied to a chair in another room down the hall.  Releasing his superior the two quietly made their way out of the house and spent a cold night in the forest before coming across Zakhar Kuznetsov, who points them toward the trailhead and freedom.

 

Believing they’ve successfully evaded their captors Armand and the General are furious when they are recaptured and quickly separated.  It’s disconcerting to realize Zakhar played them and the story Armand is told can’t possibly be true.

 

It’s a lot for the steady, down to earth marine to swallow.  Stories of shifters, vampires, and secret labs seem too farfetched to be real, yet there must be some truth in the whole thing because Armand has never felt such a powerful desire for another.  If Zakhar is being honest with Armand about their bond maybe the rest of his crazy talk is real as well.

 

Author Charlie Richards continues to breathe fresh life into her popular long running Wolves of Stone Ridge series.  The thirty-sixth installment is Swaying The Marine’s Loyalty.  Characters deal with another twist in the war between paranormals and scientists bent on their destruction.  This time out Armand Zeroni, a solid marine is brought into their world by way of his beloved Zakhar, a vampire.  Embrace Swaying the Marine’s Loyalty where love and honor actually mean something.

STRENGTH OF THE ALPHA by Shannon West & Victoria SueStrength of the Alpha by Shannon West, Victoria Sue
Series: Supremacy of the Wolves #3
Published by Dark Hollow Press Genres: MM, Paranormal


 

Humans are no longer the dominate species.  A virus called the Pestilence had wiped out 75% of the population.  Wolf shifters who were once less than second class took control.  What was once North America is split into Nine Territories with a Supreme Alpha and Alpha leaders for each individual territory.

 

Quinn, Supreme Alpha, is tired of the destruction caused by human rebel factions who refuse to accept their new reality.  Quinn puts together a Territorial Special Ops program comprised of wolf shifters and dominant humans in equal numbers.  Wolf shifter Rhys Malone and his human counterpart Tucker Adams head the team.

 

Out of the latest crop of trainees is Brandon Shaw, the younger brother of the Territory Three Alpha leader and a house-human called Cody.  Something goes terribly wrong with this group leaving one traumatized and another badly injured.  With the Special Ops program scrapped the Supreme Alpha quietly matches Rhys, Tucker, Brandon and Cody for an undercover assignment.  The danger is real, the threat deadly.  But with the heat level rising between Rhys and Brandon, Tucker and Cody – the op may just go up in smoke.

 

A potent brew of eroticism set within an original alternate reality, Strength of the Alpha exudes sensuality and suspense.  Well drawn characters keep the reader completely invested in their journey, their emotional growth.  Strength of the Alpha is impossible to resist.  Between smoking hot love scenes and the non-stop action packed storyline Strength of the Alpha thoroughly entertains the reader.
