The royal houses of Lionne and Ankar of Arden have long held duel kingship on their planet.  The princes, Pax of Lionne and Lier of Ankar are next in line to rule.  Growing up side by side they fell in love which they knew was forbidden.  Adding to the difficulties Lier’s magical abilities were far stronger than they should’ve been and he knew that the people would fear him rather than embrace him if his secret came out.  Lier renounced his crown and fled the planet, leaving Pax to pick up the pieces of his broken heart.

 

Years later peaceful Arden is conquered by Sardius, Emperor of Atros, a warrior race that lives on blood.  Ruthlessly killing or converting the entire population into blood drinkers Sardius realizes his mistake too late.  He needs the blood of a native of Arden untainted by conversion to conquer and control other star systems.

 

The race is on to locate and retrieve Lier, the last of the Ankar.  Sardius sends his son, Commander Raze to find the lost prince before the freedom fighters can hide him.  The ultimate prize has spent years learning how to survive alone.  He won’t be easy to catch and hold onto.  Unless he’s willing…

 

Author Harper Moon pens a fascinating adventure in Letting Lier and Finding Pax.  The twists and turns are everywhere in this wild journey through the stars.  Lier and Pax are incredibly complex characters, sometimes not even likeable, yet always unforgettable.  Every new chapter brings new perils and clues which keep the reader thoroughly engaged.  Letting Lier and Finding Pax is an intense and complicated tale that doesn’t end with the last chapter.  Sometimes brutal, Letting Lier and Finding Pax will keep you riveted and guessing.  Beware this is not a typical romance, far from it.

Mike Carlson loves his life in Chicago, he loves raising his nephew Jack, and most importantly he loves his husband Joe.  The fact that his husband hails from a distant solar system filled with inhabited planets doesn’t negate Mike’s feelings for Joe in the least.

 

A detective from the planet Hrrrm, Joe was sent to capture a rogue scientist experimenting on Terrans, using brain implants everyone on their solar system has.  Though the scientist Vov is killed Joe manages to save Vov’s implants and transfers them to his lover’s brain.  Neither expected the implants to change and become stronger than anything Joe’s ever seen.  Maybe it’ because he’s a Terran or because Vov did something unknown, but bottom line Mike has something unique in his head.

 

Deciding they’d figure it out over time Mike and Joe get back to their lives.  While cheering the high school student on at a state wrestling tournament they are appalled to find out that Jack’s father has been released from prison.  The man turns up at the conference threatening Jack for putting him in prison.  A wild chase through a snow storm is only the start.  Then, no sooner do the men get that situation resolved Joe realizes that someone from his home planet is after him, and Mike as well.  Their love is pure and simple, it’s everything else that’s so complicated.

 

Fans of the science fiction genre will love all the twists and turns in Alien Home, a truly compelling out of this world love story.  By their actions there’s no question Mike and Joe adore each other though actual sex isn’t part of the book.  Mike is subject to an incredibly unique and detailed government, rules, and officials.  For the most part the official rulings are fascinating though once in a while the storyline loses strength.  Also, Mike never freaks out which isn’t totally realistic.  There is a weak moment or two, but Alien Home certainly entertains and engages the reader’s interest.

One little moment in time, a mistake that wasn’t even his fault cost Kavan Griffiths his position on the Intersectoral Police force.  Working as a bounty hunter Kavan has more leeway these days, but he wants back in the ISP, so everything is on the right side of the law regardless of which sector he’s working in.

 

Kavan’s latest collar is wanted by two different sectors and so far nobody else has figured out where he fled to.  One Elliot Grayson is wanted for manufacturing illegal bacteria and he’s rumored to be the boyfriend of a drug kingpin, Rabid.

 

The man Kavan catches vehemently denies that he’s the criminal everyone is looking for.  So good at denial that Kavan begins to doubt he’s got the right guy.  Elliot may be wanted, yet Kavan begins to wonder if he’s truly guilty or is something deeper going on.  Getting involved with a collar is the last thing the bounty hunter needs if he wants his old career back.  There’s definitely more to Elliot’s criminal entanglement than meets the eye. But taking Elliot’s side may cost Kavan everything.

 

Dizzying twists and turns make Evasive Love a wild and crazy ride.  The story and characters are multi-layered, tiptoeing the line between honest and guilty.  A complex plotline with vibrant dialogue that’s sometimes snarky, other times humorous. Trying to follow Elliot’s thoughts at times is something else.  Excellent characters in a busy tale that never stops moving.  Enjoy Evasive Love.

No one can tattoo better than Inigo, a two hundred year old vampire, who works on human and supernatural skins. But he's never tattooed a faerie and when a bunch of them insist he comes with them to tattoo one of their kind, saying no proves not to be an option. His skin is Oberon, the faerie king, and Inigo fears this will be the last tattoo he'll ever do. The moment the faerie Micah lands in the faerie king's bed chamber, he knows the guy is trouble. But if he's to save his sister and his family, let alone the job he's paid to do, he has to stay in Faerieland and endure Oberon's sadism. When he's thrown into a starving vampire's cell, covered in blood, he fears this day will be his last. But Inigo finds Micah's blood too delicious to give it up by killing him. Pretty soon, he's feeling that way about Micah himself.

JoyfullyRecommended

Over the centuries vampire Inigo McIntosh re-invented himself in order to blend in and then, move on to a new life.  His latest incarnation as a tattoo artist will need to end soon because he’s gotten too well known, too much notoriety for his skills in the human world.

 

Ironically, just as Inigo is considering his future four tall, blonde faeries accost him in his shop and insist on taking him across the Divide to tattoo their king, Oberon the Seventh.  It doesn’t take the vampire more than a couple of minutes to realize their king is a dangerous sadist with a chained and collared faerie slave at his feet.

 

Fearing for his life and that of the unfortunate faerie Micah Norwood who’s expected to be Inigo’s next meal the two hatch a plan to escape.  Chances of success are slim to nil.

 

Laugh out loud dialogue, incredibly alive characters, and a wild plotline, Bloodline rocks!  Snarky heroes find love, engage in hot, hot sex and face a sadist head on.  Bloodline is a thrill ride from beginning to end and takes readers on an action packed journey.  Inigo will steal your heart, Micah your soul.  I Joyfully recommend Bloodline.  Strap in and hold on tight.
