Eighteen months without a fix.  Simeon ‘Si’ Helms is clean for the first time in a long, long time.  After jail Si had to join Narcotics Anonymous.  It was one of the best things he’d done for his recovery and he’d lucked out with a sponsor who cared when Si was struggling.  It really helped to have someone like Kip in his corner, a guy who only wanted Si to stay sober and clean.

 

The last thing he expected to see was a picture of Kip plastered on a billboard advertizing the newest action star, Kipper James.  Friends get tickets to the premiere and Si is humbled when Kip spots him in the crowd.  According to Kip he never forgot Si and now that they aren’t in NA maybe they can get together.  It could be dangerous for two ex-junkies to fall in love or the best thing in the world.

 

Between Love and Hate lays the emotional journey of a lifetime.  The main characters have been to hell and back, dealing with critical addictions.  A story of the human spirit and the chance at redemption is simply told by Si and Kip.  Gentle souls triumph in an easy, entertaining plotline.  Cheer for a pair of characters in Between Love and Hate.

Crescent Bay is home to a thriving human and paranormal community.  The leading werewolf family are the Marchands with Raoul Marchand considered the uncrowned prince.  From grade school onward Raoul and human Jamie McKenna were inseparable.  Everyone watched their childhood friendship develop into a love affair.  On the night Raoul intended to propose to Jamie an unthinkable tragedy happened and the young werewolf was never the same again.

 

Twenty years later, Raoul runs Crescent Bay’s hottest nightclub, Charisma.  He drinks too much, indulges in meaningless one night stands and never gets attached to anyone.

 

The very last thing the werewolf expected is to feel an instant connection to Alexx Jameson, a small red-haired human reporter new to town.  Thrown together at first by a physical threat, the danger escalates at the same time passion and heat turns to love.  Disturbing similarities with the past add further tension to the mix.  Raoul’s past may destroy their future.

 

When Will I See You Again hauntingly explores history repeating itself in this heartfelt tale.  The werewolf’s young love for one human and later his adult love for another shines in this eerie romance.  Emotions ring true between the characters and after such a long dry spell Raoul falls fast for Alexx.  It is somewhat disconcerting that the initial threat to Alexx isn’t handled more responsibly, such as calling the police.  Regardless of forgotten procedure, it is enjoyable to watch Raoul survive hell and find happiness with another human.  Some interesting twists and a sexy love story nicely ties together into When Will I See You Again.

Tasked in making contact with tiger shifters unaware of their heritage, Headquarters sends Grio to a college campus to locate one Phoenix Lamoure.

 

It takes some smooth talking and then some fancy footwork for Grio to get the teacher’s assistant into his SUV after Phoenix digs in his heels and refuses to listen.  The T.A. grew up in the foster system because his mother was repeatedly institutionalized and later committed suicide.  She too spouted nonsense about tigers so the last thing Phoenix wants to hear is more crazy talk about shifters.

 

The thing is, Grio isn’t kidding and he can prove it.

 

One man’s seemingly normal life is turned upside down in this unbelievable story.  Phoenix will rise from the ashes of a tragic past in Royal Line.  A potent brew of intense drama and sizzling passion, Royal Line is an absolute treat.  This is one sexy page turner.

Buried under studies at an Ivy League college then straight to a fast paced career as a Hong Kong businessman, Basho Loy barely has time to take a breath let alone have a personal life.

 

Surprised and honored to be singled out and put in charge of an entire department at such a young age, Basho is completely intimidated by his boss Kanji Chang.  Strange hallucinations involving Kanji begin to make Basho question his own sanity.

 

Becoming intimate with his boss is definitely unwise for Basho’s career and his mental stability, but the thought of ending their relationship nearly destroys him.  What is it about the exotic Kanji that draws Basho back again and again?  How can something feel so wrong when his heart says it’s so right?

 

A straightforward tale twists and turns into something mystical in Stranger Rice.  Burdened by long hours and little personal time the main character begins to suspect something’s off and the reader can feel Basho’s growing concerns.  The magical aspect creeps in slowly and then takes complete control of the story.  Stranger Rice is an adventure of quiet romance and wicked fantasy coming true.

Nicknamed ‘Cowboy’ for the boots and hat he favors Hugh MacPherson has worked at UNLV as an assistant track coach for the past five years. An itch that couldn’t be scratched has grabbed hold, so during a semester break in school Hugh books a tour to the land of his ancestors in Scotland.

 

A small time forgotten castle is home to Laird Graeme Guthrie.  The significance of his home are the Pictish standing stones within the castle grounds.  Periodically Graeme allows a group of tourist to invade his home and gaze at the stones as a way to keep the taxman at bay.

 

Coming to Scotland, exploring his roots Hugh is looking for something he isn’t sure of.  As for Graeme he has a long standing responsibility to his home and a legend taught down the ages to each laird of the Guthrie stones.  Fate brings them together at the winter solstice to fulfill a destiny kept waiting long enough.

 

Kindred spirits are joined in mystery.  An American greenhorn lends a hand to a Scottish laird in need in Cowboys and Kilts.  A dangerous puzzle unfolds for the fated lovers to explore and ultimately find answers.  Each piece of the mystery slowly comes to light, but unfortunately the answer is somewhat anti-climatic.  Cowboys and Kilts features engaging characters, smoldering passions, and a mystery that isn’t as great as Hugh and Graeme’s romance.
