Agnor is the newest Starlord and also a captain of the newest starship, and as such, he was able to hand-pick his crew.  Agnor was very exacting when picking out just who would man his ship with him during their first voyage.  He is well aware that a few of his picks shocked, but Agnor knew what he was looking for.  One of his most shocking picks was for his Loadmaster, a very shy and young girl named Betsua.

 

Betsua was as amazed as everyone else when she was offered the job, but she jumped for the chance to leave her aunt’s house and her boring job.  Betsua has used her telekinesis to help her do her job, but she has been hiding just how strong that talent is, and that isn’t the only thing she has been hiding.  Betsua is worried what will happen to her life if her secrets become known.  She has always been on the outside of life looking in, and she isn’t sure she can handle being even more of an outsider.

 

Agnor knew that Betsua was shy, but he was not about to let that keep her from making friends with her shipmates or to stop him from exploring the attraction he has felt towards his newest shipmate.  Betsua allows herself to become involved with her captain, and soon learns just what she was missing both in friendship and passion, and how it affected her already strong talents.  Agnor knew there was something very special about Betsua, and he learned just how correct he was when the ship’s real secret mission was revealed.  By the time they are heading back home, Betsua and Agnor will have begun to break the back of the enemy, and their entire world will know just how extraordinary Betsua really is—something Agnor knew even before her talents came out in the open.

 

A newly minted Starlord and a young Loadmaster will discover love and the secret that lets their enemy control talents in Shy Talent.  I already knew that Agnor was both intelligent and caring, so I wasn’t surprised by how he picked his new crew.  Nor was I surprised when he took Betsua, not only under his wing, but also to his bed when he learned the attraction was mutual.  I enjoyed watching as Betsua bloomed as her relationship with Agnor grew and also with her shipmates.  I really loved how Agnor’s confidence and support gave Betsua the confidence to use all of her talents to help destroy their enemy and bring a new and safer future to their universe.  Shy Talent brings the end of an arc in which Council worlds end their enemy, the Collective, while giving two very special people a love to last the ages.  I found it full of passion, the making of lasting friendships, and the perfect amount of suspense.

Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: MM, Science Fiction

Becoming a Star Pilot was the sky high wish of Thierry Leroux.  Of course it was a complete pipe dream because there’s no way he could afford to go even though he’d passed all the exams and gained admittance.  Thierry and his older brother were orphans surviving on Corbin’s talent as an aspasian or high priced companion and certainly didn’t have the credits to pay for the Intergalactic Star Pilot Academy.

 

When Corbin comes up with an outrageous way to make the necessary funds Thierry agrees.  He’s going to sell his virginity to the highest bidder.  The auction and the actual deflowering can all be done on the planet Wish with Corbin’s boss Monroe handling the whole thing.

 

Who knew Thierry’s virginity would be so popular and profitable because he makes enough to pay for everything at the Academy.  The only stipulation is that his benefactor remain masked and anonymous.  Thierry’s mystery man treats the virgin gently and makes the evening a night he’ll never forget.  Their time together was so special that when Thierry’s benefactor asks to meet again weeks later the Star Pilot student jumps at the opportunity.  Each time they meet he falls a little further.  If only he knew who was behind the mask.

 

One young man’s life is irrevocably changed after being sold To the Highest Bidder.  This futuristic tale begins with a hope and a dream and evolves into a risky relationship.  The truth however doesn’t set Thierry free.  And he’s the only one who hasn’t figured out who the masked man is.  Nevertheless the emotional drama builds well throughout and gives the reader a satisfying end.  To the Highest Bidder offers a unique relationship story that works, and works well for Thierry and his man.

Published by eXtasy Books Genres: BDSM, Futuristic, MM

In his last year as a college student Brand figured his chances to be called upon as a Servant go unanswered.  Soon to reach the cut off age Brand is stunned to be told that he’s finally been chosen.  With little time to get his affairs in order Brand receives his instructions and travels to an unknown location where he will spend the next few years as a twenty-four/seven submissive to an unknown Master.

 

Arriving at his destination Brand deduces he’s in New Orleans.  Taken inside a dark mansion he undergoes an intense sexual game with four unknown strangers at the command of his mysterious Master. Lucky for Brand the stranger he enjoys most is the man who has bound them together as Servant and Master, action adventure big screen star Zane Wooding.

 

The Dominant actor has particular sexual tastes and wants someone who can’t ruin him in the press.  Zane is also looking for a real D/s relationship rather than a fawning fan pretending.   Master and Servant begin to explore and enjoy what they have between them.   Certainly there will be some bumps along the way, but neither expects another to pervert their relationship.  The stakes have been raised.  Winner takes all.

 

Celluloid Cage is a down and dirty in your face carnal story.  The third installment in the Master and Servant series takes a look at the relationship between a submissive college student and a well known popular Dominant actor.  A plausible storyline links from one heavily erotic scene to the next.  Looking for a hot and heavy story? Celluloid Cage is the answer.  The downside is that the whole Master and Servant plot point is never really explained, no helpful back story either.  Never gross – definitely raw.

Eleanor Meyers is an undercover cop who might have must worked her last case when she is busted by an ex-con that she helped put away.  She has been working on a black marketing case involving illegal aphrodisiacs rung by rung and while Eleanor is still close to the bottom of the pile, she knows that just walking away is not an option.  Expecting her last breath to be at any moment, everyone in the room is surprised when a android enforcer breaks in and rescues her.

 

Proteus is a pleasure drone and has then refitted into a Viper Series enforcer.  His job simply put is to find and kill the bad guys and to protect the police officers.  Proteus saved Eleanor and for the first time in a long time felt something – lust for a woman.  When a cut up android is found, Proteus asks to be assigned to the case.

 

On mandatory time off and despairing of ever being given a chance to show that she was not harmed, Eleanor is given the case of a crazed serial killer of androids. The only catch is that she has to team up with a partner – the sexy viper that rescued her on her last mission.  Eleanor will do anything to prove that she has not lost it to her superiors – even work with Proteus.  Their initial heat smolders and flames up quite quickly; Eleanor discovers that some of Proteus’ best parts remain from his time as a pleasure drone.  All her adult life has been spent as a cop and working within the book, however when Proteus is taken will Eleanor stay within the book or break out on her own to save him?

 

The Android’s Kiss combines science fiction and eroticism in a very pleasing manner.  Proteus does not think much of sex after spending his prior time as a pleasure drone.  He is a viper series enforcer who mostly fulfills warrants and carries out the sentence right then and there.  Eleanor sees herself as undercover cop first and a woman second.  Together Proteus and Eleanor discover an erotic love that makes itself known, even as they risk their lives.  Lovers of science fiction and eroticism will want to have The Android’s Kiss on their shelf.

Now that Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran Lennart, have totally split from the pack, they are on their final 30-day countdown to shift all their assets from the pack and to bring over anyone who wants to leave the pack and be with them in their new lives.  That would be enough to keep them busy, but it seems that a member of the pack, Eduardo, who they now discover is a mate to a really good friend, has disappeared.  To top it off, it appears that the Mercenary Guild is involved.  Kate hasn’t really been involved with the Guild while dealing with the other things that had taken over her life.  But she is still a senior member of the Guild and will pull every string she can to find out just what he was doing when he disappeared.

 

Curran and Kate begin this hunt, which becomes even more involved as they discover that the Guild is involved with the pack. If that doesn’t top it off, it appears that Kate’s father dearest has decided that he wants to be closer to Kate.  Kate and Curran are now in a multi-angled race against time.  They have to find out what is behind Eduardo’s disappearance and save him before they find evidence of his passing; they have to lay down the law to Kate’s father; and they have to complete their untangling with the pack all while complying with the rules that are part this untangling from the pack.  Talk about dealing with a tightrope walk.  As the clues on what happened to Eduardo come clear, it appears his disappearance was brought on by something he never knew about and saving him will involve dealing with an action done many years before. To round things out, drastic changes will happen to the Guild and the pack before it’s all over.  Just another week in the normal life of Kate and Curran.

 

Kate and Curran were hoping that as they separate themselves from the pack that maybe, just maybe, their lives might settle down a wee bit.  However, they discover just how wrong they are in Magic Shifts.  I wondered just how things would go now that Curran was no longer the Beast Lord and Kate had adopted her city. I also wondered if Kate would get back to doing more with the Guild.  I found these answers and so much more as I began turning the pages in this latest chapter of their lives.  I loved how they immediately took up the search for Eduardo when they discovered he was missing.  Watching as both Kate and Curran worked together in finding the answers to Eduardo’s disappearance and trying to get through these last 30 days of separation from the pack told me that, even now, the pack would be always around them.  I really loved how Curran turned a bad faith act into something that will probably be a plus for him and Kate in time.  There is a whole lot more going on that I can’t tell you without spilling the beans on too much.  All I can say is that you really need to read this book if you have followed Kate and Curran at all.  Magic Shifts is an outstanding new adventure with Kate and Curran full of love, danger and, of course, the action-packed suspense that we expect from Ms. Andrews with this couple.
