Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: MM, Urban Fantasy

Destructive Delta team leaders Dexter J. Daley and jaguar Therian Sloane Brodie have managed so far to separate their professional partnership at work with their lives as lovers at home.  A lot of things have happened in the last few days, important, life altering things.  Surprisingly nothing scares them more than telling the family and the THIRDS team what’s going on.

 

In less than a week Dex has dealt with his father getting shot and single handedly killed a Therian murder suspect.  Oh, and Dex died and came back a human-Therian hybrid.  Even with all that, Dex and Sloane are worried about telling the people they love and respect what’s happening.  Bruising and blood may be involved.

 

Readers will truly enjoy the addition of Thick and Thin to the complex THIRDS series.  The tension, grief, and feelings of betrayal strongly come across as the book unfolds.  Dex and Sloane’s emotional journey continues to evolve as does the rest of the characters stories.  Steamy moments, poignant interludes, and testosterone charged arguments are all parts of the whole which is Thick and Thin.  But at this point new readers are advised to read this series in order.  Embrace this exceptionally diverse reality with great characters and their unique world.

THE STRENGTH OF THE RISING SUN by S. A. McAuleyStrength of the Rising Sun by S.A. McAuley
Series: Border Wars #5
Published by Pride Publishing Genres: MM, Urban Fantasy

The Revolution seems certain to finally end the war once and for all.  People throughout what is left of the world are war weary and ready to back the peace that the Revolution offers them.

 

Pivotal chess pieces of the war are Merq Grayson, Peacemaker, and Armise Darcan, Dark Ops who have fought against and together during the years of these never ending wars.

 

None of it matters now as Merq races to save Armise who’s lost his arm to their greatest enemy, a man who has held them prisoner.  Getting Armise the medical care he needs to survive is all that Merq can think about.

 

The battle to save his lover’s life is just the beginning.  Secrets are revealed.  Their worst enemy must be stopped.  When all is said and done can Merq and Armise come to the realization that forgiveness must be sought for their love to flame or will they crash and burn forever.  Walking away is the only way they can make it.  Too bad everyone will try to stop them.

 

The violent, gritty Borders War series comes to a gut wrenching finish in the emotionally challenging Strength of the Rising Sun.  Book 5 is an all or nothing chilling climax.  Merq and Armise have led a tempestuous journey where love and romance barely survived.  A skillful, harsh blend of dark drama and unflinching faith in each other has kept Strength of the Rising Sun from floundering.  Merq and Armise are one in a million characters who deserve this ending.  This was one wild, exhausting romance.

JERRICHO’S FREEDOM by Jake C. WallaceJerricho's Freedom by Jake C. Wallace
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: MM, Urban Fantasy

The Anzuni hide in plain sight among the humans with no one the wiser.  Their history tells them of a time when they were slaves to another demon race before they fled the dimension and settled on a safer home with humans.

 

Jerricho has spent his life rebelling against the future mapped out for him since birth. When he turns twenty-five in a mere ten months Jerricho will take his father’s place as the crown Prince of the Anzuni demon race, marry the demon picked by his parents, and begin producing heirs.

 

Defying tradition ‘Jerry’ has a tiny apartment, a job at the library, and a multitude of tattoos.  Refusing his parent’s financial support Jerry also has a construction job thanks to his best friend Keith who’s also an Anzuni.  Lusting after human site foreman Rex Callaghan is a terrible temptation as Jerry is expected to be a virgin on his wedding night.

 

Visiting his parents Jerry is introduced to the man they’ve picked out for him who’s overbearing, pompous, and possibly abusive.  Jerry panic’s and does the unthinkable. It seems Rex has hid his feelings as well.  Jerricho wouldn’t take back that precious night with Rex for any amount of gold, but consequences must be faced.  The future of the Anzuni depends on it.  Unforeseen events send Jerry and Rex on a course of action they are ill prepared for.  They will need every ounce of strength and love for the chance at a life together.

 

Jerricho’s Freedom leads readers on a challenging journey of brutal survival and love.  An intricately woven plotline takes the spirited characters from one dangerous situation to another.  Jerry and Rex battle one obstacle after another in this masterful story.  With everything that’s thrown at the pair, they still manage to keep their love intact.  Jerry and Rex’s spirit triumphs in Jerricho’s Freedom.  This is a very emotional, sometimes chilling ride.  Hold on tight. Jerricho’s Freedom is definitely worth it.

JAEGER by Evelise ArcherJaeger by Evelise Archer
Series: Order of the Black Knights
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: MM, Urban Fantasy

Centuries ago Jaeger was nothing more than a starving peasant resentful of his lord and the heir.  A stranger came to him with an offer of revenge and a new life.  Jaeger accepted.  He didn’t know that he was condemning himself to a never ending life of death and rebirth, a curse with no memory of his folly each time he returned.  Jaeger has no way of knowing with each rebirth the curse strengthens.

 

U.S. Marshall Jaeger Tripp is becoming more disgusted with his job.  The Witness Protection Program is nothing more than an ‘out’ for criminals as far as he’s concerned.  As long as the criminal has something to squeal about they get a fresh life, never mind their own guilt.

 

The latest assignment involves a book keeper for the infamous Rincorn cartel based in Mexico.  Wren O’Riley is the nephew of the current leader and insists he deals solely with legitimate business.  He couldn’t look the other way however after witnessing the murder of the Chino cartel leader.

 

It’s up to Marshall Tripp to keep Wren alive long enough to testify against his uncle which will be easier said than done.  Criminals are coming out of the woodwork looking for Wren and Jaeger suspects there’s someone within the Program who’s turned traitor.  On the run, unable to trust anyone Jaeger and Wren must rely on each other to survive.  They certainly don’t have time to explore what’s happening between them.

 

An action packed, deadly adventure unfolds in Jaeger.  The gritty, dark story has a fierce plotline and complex characterizations.  Sexual tension and threats from all sides go hand in hand as Jaeger and Wren grow closer.  The Marshall’s long buried past adds another layer to the twisting tale too.  Jaeger is much more than a dangerous road trip romance, much more indeed

CRIMSON DEATH by Laurell K. HamiltonCrimson Death by Laurell K. Hamilton
Series: Anita Blake #25
Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

U.S. Marshall Anita Blake discovered her gift as a necromancer very early on in life.  As a young child she mourned the recent death of her pet dog, went to bed one night and woke the next morning to find the dead and buried animal curled up at the foot of her bed.  Anita is considered by many to be the most powerful necromancer of all.

 

The vampires call her The Executioner and recently added the title War to her reputation.  Complicating matters between the human and paranormal population is her relationship with Jean Claude, the vampire Master of the City of St. Louis and now the vampire King of America.  And Jean Claude isn’t the only man in her bed.  There is also Nathaniel a wereleopard, Micah the wereleopard leader or Nimir-Raj, and Nicky a werelion, and several others.  Lastly, there is Damian, her vampire Servant which is completely unheard of.  Anita is well aware that her working life and romantic relationships could fry the brain.  Literally her cup runneth over and her plate is way too full with men and monsters and more.

 

Anita and her lovers are trying to figure out an issue with Damian when she receives a call from the man vampires call Death, good ole boy Ted Forrester, aka Edward.  He needs Anita in Ireland right away, a country thought to be without vampires.  Apparently there’s one on the rampage indiscriminately killing and making newborn vampires every night.

 

Arguing with authorities who have a problem with her kill count while trying to figure out who is decimating the population in Dublin has Anita and her people stretched thin.  With no rhyme or reason behind the acts Anita is scrambling for answers.  Mysterious deaths, bureaucrats, and a bat sh*t crazy vampire called M’Lady are giving Anita a seriously bad day.

 

Author Laurell K. Hamilton’s deliciously dark and dangerous vampire hunter Anita Blake excels with a fresh bone chilling tale.  A potent brew of sensual exploration and pulse pounding drama results in Crimson Death.  As with previous books in this series Crimson Death has an edgy intensity that permeates the character driven storyline.  Anita Blake is hands down a force to be reckoned with.  Fans of the series have watched her stumble and grow into an exceptional character, her strengths and weaknesses fascinating to witness.  Crimson Death presents a riveting tale of Anita’s relationships with Jean Claude, Nathaniel, Damian, and the rest while at the same time a suspenseful mystery slowly unfolds before the kick ass finish.  I Joyfully recommend Crimson Death. Anita Blake is simply unable to disappoint readers.
