The day U.S. Marshall Trace Thatcher was forced to kill motorcycle gang leader Kenny Dellburn in self defense forever changed the life of his son, Marco Dellburn.  Raised by his abusive father Marco gratefully left the legacy of the Born Evil motorcycle gang for a normal life with Trace and his partner.  The only thing Marco would miss from his old life was fellow gang member Sam Channing.  His decision to become a Marshall was an easy one.

 

Eventually elected Born Evil’s new leader after Kenny’s death, Sam is horrified to find the gang embroiled with a drug cartel’s latest scheme.  They’ve always been gun runners and stayed away from drugs in the past.  This agreement with Austin Howard and the cartel could ruin everything they’ve built.  Coming face to face with an undercover Marco during a meeting with Howard jolts the gang leader who realizes that the Marshall services are onto the cartel.  Caught within a web not of his making Sam’s only hope is the deal Marco and his team can offer.  Marco will do everything he can to help, bu, they are still on opposite sides of the law and the danger is very real.

Rock god Channing Anderson and his band are about to go on a European tour.  There’s just one problem.  His devil spawn son has been expelled from the last school in Boston that would take him.  The boy’s mother bailed on them long before the divorce was finalized so there is no hope from that side.  Channing enlists his sister Virginia, who also manages the band, to find a tutor.

 

Their answer arrives on Channing’s doorstep in the form of a violet eye Brit.  Raised by his older brother after their parents’ tragic death, Broderick ‘Brodie’ Chapman lost his last position after the husband made inappropriate moves.  This time Brodie’s hoping the job will run on a strictly professional level.

 

Teaching his idol’s son is a dream come true.  The goal will be to help the boy learn to curb his willfulness though it’s easy to see the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.  And it’s a good thing Channing will be gone most of the time because the sparks flying between the rock star and the young tutor could light the city.  Good thing indeed.

 

A thoroughly delightful tale, A Gentleman’s Gentleman is enchanting from beginning to end.  Between a potent rocker and a British charmer lies a very engaging story.  Clever surprises are sprinkled throughout while realistic problems rise to add conflict.  Simply put A Gentleman’s Gentleman totally rocks.

Series: Pandemonia #1
Published by Allure, Amber Quill Genres: MM, Science Fiction

An intergalactic war turned the Earth into a veritable wasteland.  Survivors fled for a new life in the stars.  The ravaged planet was renamed Old Earth and became the Pandemonia Penal Colony.  It is a dumping ground for murderers, thieves, and political dissidents among others.

 

It is the year 4035.  Dr. Swane Fox, a behavioral scientist, is determined to study the population of Pandemonia.  The good doctor grew up on a planet devoid of conflict, a very peaceful people and he’s driven to learn what causes such violent tendencies.  Because a particular group of scientists have a stranglehold on the comings and goings of the penal colony Swane has forged papers to spend time as a convict on the planet.

 

Dropped planet side everything goes wrong from the start.  He wakes up in the hovel of a man called August whose temper runs hot or cold at the drop of a hat.  August is quick to point out how naïve Swane was to think he could study the people living there.  It is a war zone and everyone is out for themselves in Pandemonia.  Secrets are the currency and the doctor is certain that August is loaded.  Falling for the gruff prisoner is making the situation both worse and better to handle.  Too soon Swane will be forced to leave without the mysterious man he’s come to love.

 

Author Darcy Abriel pens an edgy, dark tale in Fortuity which explores the human will to survive.  Readers are plunged into a bleak reality where right and wrong sometimes count for little.  Swane and August are polar opposites.  They have a sensual, contentious relationship that somehow works in this story.  A unique setting, fascinating characters, and a chilling plotline is told in Fortuity, the first book in the Pandemonia series.

Series: Pandemonia #2
Published by Allure, Amber Quill Genres: MM, Science Fiction

Pandemonia Penal Colony of 4024 has evolved into a distinctive civilization where criminals and political prisoners alike are dumped and forgotten.  Over time families are formed, children are born and their ties are strengthened.   As no one seems to care what happens to those on Pandemonia a sect of scientists have free rein to run experiments that would otherwise be illegal or immoral.

 

Drace is in control of a large area of what was once Paris, France.  One of many survivors of experimental DNA splicing Drace is a dragogen, a human/reptile hybrid.  Wanting to discover what Dr. Beljon, the assistant director of Scientific Interrogation, is up to he has the doctor’s disciple kidnapped.  Crispin Wills, the disciple, is exactly the dragogen’s type which points to Drace being set up.  As days pass and nobody seems to want Crispin returned it appears the dragogen was correct.

 

Getting Crispin to divulge his secrets is more difficult than expected.  Using torture won’t work; using seduction however proves far more stimulating and effective for both Drace and Crispin.  When the disciple finally breaks the dragogen is forced to applaud the scientist’s devious methods.  Saving Crispin won’t be easy, but Drace is one stubborn dragogen.

 

Book two in the Pandemonia series comes out swinging with Combustible.  Intriguing characters are set within a compelling plotline, at first seductive then steamy and finally an explosive climax.  Drace is a taciturn, intelligent alpha.  Crispin is a survivor stuck between a rock and a hard place.  The gritty future in Combustible is a scary, dark place indeed.

ABOUT A DRAGON by A. J. LlewellynAbout a Dragon by A. J. Llewllyn
Published by Allure, Amber Quill Genres: MM, Paranormal

Television writer Teddy Greist has two things to be very thankful for these days.  Hired to write for Oahu P.D., the show is luckily a big hit and he’s found a man worth loving.  Even his mongrel dog Vic loves his boyfriend Song Smith.

 

The head writer is kind of a jerk and that’s to be expected in television land so Teddy can deal with it.  What he’s suddenly having a problem dealing with is Song acting weird and dumping him without warning.

 

Song didn’t expect to fall for Teddy and now that he has he’s got a dilemma.  How do you tell the man you love that a family curse is real?  If he doesn’t go through with the terms of the curse…well, it won’t be good.  Maybe it’s easier to simply end things.  Yet if Teddy is willing to accept the consequences of the curse they can be together.  What to do. What to do.

 

A genuinely delightful romance takes a turn into the bizarre when Teddy hears About a Dragon.  Teddy is a likeable, sincere guy and so is Song, except for the problem of a little family curse.  Their story has an engaging plotline and fast moving dialogue which culminates in a wild ending.  The surprise is definitely worth a chuckle or two.  About a Dragon is lighthearted Hawaiian fun with characters that make this tale enjoyable.
