The FBI Enhanced team has the public on their side.  For the first time humans are having a positive response to the feared Enhanced.  All because the team was able to foil a robbery and save human lives.

 

A rash of missing Enhanced children and teens hits the team hard.  They determine the kids are being taken from several foster homes.  Finn Mayer, their human team mate is the only one capable of pretending to be a teen and he’s also going to have to act like a believable Enhanced.

 

The danger to Finn is certainly real which is hard for team leader Talon Valdez to deal with.  For the first time in Talon’s life he cares for someone and his possessive attitude isn’t going down well with Finn.  Everything hinges on the hope that Finn is snatched so that the team can figure out what’s going on.  Finding the body of one of the missing Enhanced teens isn’t the best way to calm Talon’s fears for his lover’s safety.  Definitely not the best way to start an undercover operation.

 

The unique Enhanced series introduces another intense story in Who We Truly Are.  Fascinating, flawed characters work through difficult personal issues while at the same time do their best to save lives.  Who We Truly Are has an emotionally charged plotline involving the most vulnerable, Enhanced kids.  Talon and Finn’s relationship is both steamy and complicated, as well as rich in detail.  Author Victoria Sue has written an exceptional multi-layered original story in Who We Truly Are.

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.

High school senior Drake Carpenter has learned the hard way that life isn’t always fair.  The loss of his parents and leaving his Texas home was difficult.  At least his Aunt Millie was there for him.  And he held his own against a snotty senior called Mason Blackmoor.

 

Everything changed once more when Drake discovered the world of magic through Mason, the boy he fell in love with.  Tragedy struck again when evil beings murdered his beloved Aunt Milly.  It seems as though every time Drake turns around something awful or fantastic is going on.  If someone had told Drake a year ago that he’d be surrounded by warlocks and other beings who care for him, never mind Mason who loves Drake with his entire heart, the teen wouldn’t have believed it.

 

At the moment the Blackmoor family and their lovers, including Drake, are searching for an evil stronger than anything they’ve come across so far.  Oh, and there’s a new boy at school, Will Hopkins who Drake feels kind of sorry for and Mason doesn’t trust.  The one certainty is knowing that together they are stronger and able to face any evil.  Before long new revelations are going to strain their love to the nth degree. Seems it’s time to prove their bond yet again.

 

Deliciously dark and incredibly loving Spell Fall is finally here.  Book four in the highly absorbing series The Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge returns readers to their action packed magical world once more.  The newly revealed secrets are unbelievable.  Totally addictive, Spell Fall keeps readers on the edge of their seats.  And the series never disappoints with great characters and always imaginative storylines.  Drake and Mason are impossible to resist.  Curl up and relax with Spell Fall.
