Jenner is a newly turned vampire so it comes as quite a shock when he walks into his King’s house and finds his mate staying there. Bria has been sheltered by her uncle all her life so when their coven is attacked and she is mortally injured, she is stunned to find herself turned by the King and then as soon as she recovers, faced with a possessive mate. Bria maybe surprised by the sudden changes in her life but she is more than willing to give it her all. But as much as Jenner wants to give in to his desire for Bria, he’s afraid of the darkness inside of him. Darkness that could consume him and destroy Bria. Can Bria convince him to give into her and prove he can control the darkness? Or will Jenner continue to run from his past?

 

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a vampire romance that enthralled me as much as The Dark Vampire. Kate Baxter has skillfully drawn me in and not only made me invest in Jenner and Bria’s story but left me jonesing for what I know will be stories for the secondary characters. How can I wait? I’ll be stalking the new releases for the next addition of this series!!

The Psy/Changeling world has recently had many, many changes. First, a war that almost tore the entire world apart and then shock after a madness brought chaos, and then finally a tentative peace with the Trinity Accord.  While many of the strongest Psy, Changeling, and Humans are doing everything they can to achieve the peace the world needs so desperately, there are many strong people of all the races who are determined to destroy the agreement before its roots can grow strong and sink in deep.  As the days and weeks go by, it becomes apparent to those backing the Accord that more changes will need to be made to the backbone of the Accord itself so that it can grow and include more than the first signers.

 

That would have been enough to keep the Humans, Changelings and Psy busy, but life must go on and as the DarkRiver and the SnowDancers get ready to welcome the pupcubs and the Arrows of all ages are learning to feel and love, a cry for help is located from one of the missing BlackSea Changelings, and it appears that the Coalition believes that Lucas and Sasha’s daughter is the perfect way to destroy the tentative peace.  It’s all hands on deck to not only find the missing BlackSea member and keep all of the children safe, because it’s not just Naya that is in danger, but all of the children from every group who signed the Accord.  There are many changes both happy and sad that happen as the various groups learn to talk with each other and share in order to protect and grow.  The world is never going to be perfect, but maybe so long as communication and cooperation continues to happen, the world just might find the peace it’s seeking.

 

Buckle up because this is going to be a bumpy and emotional ride but so, so worth it.  Allegiance of Honor ties-up many threads from the first arc in Ms. Singh’s wonderful world.  We get to catch up on all of our favorite couples and characters, learn more about some recently introduced characters, and see the trundles of what is in store for this world when the new story arc unfolds.  As with life, not all of the experiences are joyful ones, but even in sorrow, you can also find joy, and I experienced this in a couple of places.  Of course, there is the great suspense we have come to expect in a Psy/Changeling book.  And I was so very impatient to see the birth of the pupcubs—another wonderful moment you will love to experience.

 

As I closed the book, I knew that the world and my favorite characters would continue to live their lives, and I might see glimpses of what they are doing much later down the road, but I have to admit that it was a bittersweet feeling.  I actually read the book twice before I even tried to write this review and then had to re-do this several times—all because I wanted to tell you about so many points that just grabbed me.  In the end, I just have to Joyfully Recommend Allegiance of Honor as a true must-read and an absolute keeper.  Heck, if we had a higher category to rate a book, I would have given it to this one.  I can’t wait for this book to come out so I can discuss it in detail with other rabid readers.

 

Ms. Singh has produced a major hit to end a favorite story arc and deserves to take a bow, but a quick one so that she can give us the next adventure in this growing world…hint, hint.

Constantine Norka was once the head of the Silver Dragons and then was killed and now is a spirit dragon living with his ex-mate and her new mate, Baltic, the new head of the Light Dragons.  Now his days are spent seeing just how much he can irritate Baltic and others.  So when Constantine is asked to go and try to find a certain artifact as a talisman that could be used to help destroy the curse on the dragons, he reluctantly agrees.

 

Bee Ndala, is a charmer who was brought in to undo the curse and free all of the dragons and their mates.  Considering her younger sister is now a dragon mate, Bee wants to get this done as soon as possible.  So when she decided to take it upon herself to find an artifact to use as the talisman, Bee never expected to be captured by Asmodeus’s goons and locked into a prison in Abaddon.  Even more unexpected was being found and released by a sexy dragon sent to do the same thing as Bee.

 

Constantine and Bee escape Abaddon with what they believe will be needed for Bee to unravel the curse.  However, when they try, it horribly backfires, and they and the other dragons and mates learn that they had the wrong person behind the curse—it was Bael, not Asmodeus.  Now, the stakes are even higher to find a new talisman and break the curse, because there is a deep secret that Constantine is one of the very few to know about Bael.  Along the way of finding this new talisman and uncovering a secret that will change a lot among the dragons, Constantine and Bee have fallen in love—something that isn’t as easy as it sounds either.  The curse might be broken, but the danger is still there, and it just a step more dangerous now.  Just another day in the life of dragons.

 

A once powerful spirit dragon and a spunky charmer will meet and work together to end the curse out to destroy the dragons in Dragon Storm.  Bee and Constantine as a couple wasn’t something anyone would have expected, even them.  Yet as they came together, I could see just how well they clicked, and I wasn’t at all amazed when they became mated.  I enjoyed watching as Bee and Constantine destroyed the curse and became tighter, even as things around them became weirder than ever.  I have to admit some of the secrets that were revealed shocked me and made me wonder what is next to come in this crazy world developed by Ms. MacAlister. Dragon Storm is a fun-loving romp where two people who I believe needed a fresh start full of love was given that chance and the perfect mate, with just a bit of suspense and danger thrown in to even things out.

Series: Pariah Pack #2
Published by Siren-BookStrand Genres: MM, Paranormal

Wolf shifter gamma Silas Donovan takes his responsibilities towards the pack’s security very seriously.  He’d rather not leave their safety in another’s hands, but when the Alpha asks for a personal favor Donovan reluctantly agrees to a bodyguard job.

 

The world’s top model is none other than Asian golden cat shifter Aran Aquino.  Plans have been made for a fantastic photo layout centered on Aran on Fregate Island in the Seychelles where the Banyon Hill Estate is the only sign of modern life on the entire island.

 

After long flights and hours of boat travel everyone finally arrives on the island.  Donovan is there to protect the model from possible threats though the only people there are Aran’s own entourage and the boat crew.

 

When Donovan is introduced to Aran the wolf shifter is pleasantly surprised to find his charge isn’t the stuck up brat he expects to meet.  He also realizes that he’s found his mate in the golden cat shifter.  Protecting Aran is going to prove easier than figuring out how the two will blend their lives.  Canine and feline mates should be interesting to say the least.

 

The Pariah Pack returns with another new tale.  Lone Wolf and His Cool Cat brings unlikely mates Donovan and Aran together in this sexy suspense story.  Watch the sexual sparks fly between the wolf and his cat.  All in all the storyline follows along as expected with tense moments from an unexpected foe at the climax.  Lone Wolf and His Cool Cat has a tropical locale, hot loving, and a pair of agreeable characters.

WOLFE AND HIS BUNNY by Susan LaineWolfe and his Bunny by Susan Laine
Series: Pariah Pack #1
Published by Siren-BookStrand Genres: MM, Paranormal

Alpha Max Wolfe is in charge of an unusual pack.  His people are cast offs, the misfits that other packs threw out or those who survived the decimation of their own pack. They have bonded together with the wolf shifter as their leader.  Now passing the century mark Wolfe is a successful bounty hunter who also dabbles in racing for extra income.

 

After a recent race Wolfe caught a scent in the crowd that had to have been his mate.  When he tried to chase the scent down he caught sight of a young man but somehow lost him.  Once he picked up the scent again Wolfe tracked down Peter Bennett, a rabbit shifter who saves abused animals when he’s not working at an animal shelter.

 

Of all the cosmic twists of fate – pairing a predator to prey as mates.  Wolfe’s inner animal is driving him to consummate their relationship, to bond forever.  As for Peter he’s skeptical that they can work things out.  He’s not sure they can ever find common ground and asks Wolfe to wait, to let them get to know each other before making the ultimate commitment.  After all they only get one mate in a lifetime. Patience, Wolfe, patience.  Surely it’s not too much to ask.

 

Wolfe and His Bunny charmingly questions what fate was thinking matching a wolf and a rabbit.  Time after time readers see Wolfe stumble during his attempts to court Peter who proves to have a great deal of patience.  Each makes mistakes, sometimes big mistakes.  What sets Wolfe and His Bunny above other books is that Wolfe and Peter are willing to keep trying.  Neither throws in the towel on love.  Through false starts and speed bumps Wolfe and His Bunny triumphs.
