THE SOLDATI PRINCE by Charlie CochetThe Soldati Prince by Charlie Cochet
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: Fantasy, MM

Closing up the coffee shop one late evening Riley Murrough is confronted by two men in black who morph into smelly, gooey globs.  As he’s screaming in his head and running for his life three men and a woman appear and morph into huge tigers that destroy the two gooey guys, as well as others who’d joined the nightmare party.

 

Next thing he knows tribal tattoos appear on his arm and the non smelly foursome are talking about Riley being the destined mate to their king.  Riley is introduced to King Khalon and his Soldati soldiers Rayner, Ezra, and Adira.  Unfortunately it’s the unfriendly, arrogant member of the group who is supposed to be Riley’s mate.

 

Obviously it’s a mistake of major proportions.  There’s no way an Immortal Soldati King could be mated to a human according to Khalon.  He insists on taking Riley to their home, which is in another magical dimension to straighten out this mess.  Their priestess will be able to release the human from a wrong destiny.  Otherwise the demons will continue going after him to weaken Khalon.

 

Remove the tattoo and Riley can go home – none the wiser.  That’s the plan.  Well, it’s a plan.  Getting to know each other along the way won’t change anything.  Right.

 

The Soldati Prince presents a seriously enjoyable opposites attract love story.  Sassy Riley and stick in the mud Khalon slowly warm up in this imaginative plotline.  Entertaining dialogue works well in the tense, well drawn tale.  Moments of high danger followed by witty humor briskly moves The Soldati Prince along.  Edge of your seat drama and a sneaky twist at the end will prove The Soldati Prince’s worth.

A millennium ago the five most powerful angels gave up their lives in order to save the three realms from their dreaded enemy Asagoroth, the great dragon demon who promised to destroy them all.  History records the destruction of Asagoroth.  However, they were only able to imprison the great dragon.

 

The angel Trystan is surrounded by his people day and night, yet lonely beyond words.  At birth he was called Unchosen.  With no chance of career or relationship few bother the shy angel.  In truth his parents pretend Trystan doesn’t exist and his older siblings ignore him.  Only his sister Annalise spends time with her little brother.

 

Bullied and forgotten Trystan loves to spend time in the Center Garden.  Harassed by others yet again, Trystan accidentally discovers a hidden well with an intricate dragon carving.  A mystery to be solved, Trystan inadvertently sets in motion a pre-ordained situation.

 

Lies and bigotry rush forth as the angel and the freed demon search for a safe home in the cosmos.  As they try to stop history from repeating itself their one chance may already be gone.

 

An excellent twisting tale of fate and destiny is revealed in On Wings of Thunder.  Author M.D. Grimm pens a story of acceptance, redemption, and love in equal measure.  Absolutely riveting, On Wings of Thunder is a timely tale of forgiveness absolution.  Trystan and Asagoroth battle racism of heavenly proportions.  Excellent visualizations, exciting storyline, and moral issues to ponder.  A great page turner.

The concept of destined mates is something that jaguar shifters don’t believe in.  Known to be loners for the most part jaguar shifters rarely interact with their own kind, let alone other types of shifters.

 

Jaguar Quincy Archer has been living on the outskirts of Pittsburgh trying to figure out what to do.  He’s come across a wolf shifter who calls to him in a way that shouldn’t be possible.  At the same time he’s trying to lie low and keep off his father’s radar.  His sire is relentless in his determination to bring Quincy to heel and return home to mate and sire cubs.

 

It seems however that some things can’t be ignored or dismissed.  Wolf shifter Miles Grant, an ER doctor working at a local hospital also feels the pull that Quincy is trying to pretend isn’t real.  Though considered rare Miles does believe in destined mates and yearns for his other half.

 

As Quincy and Miles attempt to come to grips with their personal destiny together there are others within the shifter community intent on destroying them both.  A deadly plot, a dangerous conspiracy.  Someone is orchestrating a coup and using the lovers as bait.  Caught in the crosshairs Quincy and Miles are forced to fight for their future or perish alone.

 

Bigotry of an altogether different kind comes to light in Acceptance.  The third book in the Forbes Mates series brings a jaguar and a wolf together in the most powerful way possible.  Opposites in every way Quincy and Miles wade through their issues and come out stronger.  The large cast includes mates from previous books, yet manages to keep the jaguar and wolf center stage throughout.  Their romance feels real, the whodunit is fun to explore and unravel.  Acceptance layers a solid love story with a dangerous drama.  The results are absolutely worth embracing.

Comic book artist Marty Valdez is caught between a loving, nosy family and the white lies he’s told to keep them off his back.  Dating Christian had been a disaster as the guy kept cheating until Marty finally had enough and ended their relationship.  To keep his family from nagging him about his single status Marty invented Tim Drake, underwear model.  With his sister’s impending wedding everyone expects Marty to bring Tim as his date.

 

FBI Special Agent Luke Myers has managed to infiltrate El Dragon’s cartel in San Antonio.  A meeting with one of the cartel’s henchmen however doesn’t go so well.  After barely escaping with his life Luke realizes that someone in the local FBI office has to be a mole.

 

Under less than ideal circumstances Luke and Marty meet and come to a wild agreement since both are desperate for help.  The agent needs a place to lie low until he can figure out who he can trust.  Marty needs someone to accompany him to his sister’s wedding.  Their unlikely introduction doesn’t begin to cover what happens next.

 

Undercover Boyfriend tells an irresistible and utterly charming tale of secrets, white lies, and love at first sight.  The main characters are refreshingly interesting and their chemistry is realistic.  A slightly ludicrous plotline and the obvious secrets don’t detract in any way from the enjoyment of this story.  A wacky love story perhaps, but Undercover Boyfriend is pure fun.

Lord Etan, the younger brother of Duke Cathal and cousin to the monarch of Tournai, spends his days assisting Prince Phillip and his consort, Prince Amory.  When he’s not working for them he uses his time researching in the Palace library.  Many subjects fascinate Etan, in particular the family bloodline’s special and secret Talent.  Etan has plenty of spare time since the man he gave his heart to will never be within reach.

 

Prince Amory has known Tristan since childhood and he became a regular fixture in the palace after Amory’s marriage to the Prince.  Introduced to Lord Etan they quickly became fast friends, but everything changed when Tristan’s father took ill.  Suddenly the young man was expected to run the family’s extensive businesses.  What was harder to bear was his father’s insistence on arranging a marriage for his son.

 

Reluctantly agreeing to the wedding Tristan lost his father soon after and then months later his young wife died in childbirth.  Through it all Tristan missed his friendship with Etan, never realizing why the young lord had backed out of his life.  Faced with a newborn daughter and a busy career Tristan is nonetheless incensed when his mother insists he remarry and father more heirs.

 

Trying to juggle everything Tristan made time to visit his old friend and began to see Etan in a new light.  He found that Etan gave him the strength to cope.  Dealing with his mother was becoming more and more difficult, but that was nothing compared to the discovery that his infant daughter has been kidnapped.  Together Tristan and Etan will find baby Bria and uncover a secret plot intent on destroying them all.

 

Author Antonia Aquilante takes readers back to the lands of Tournai, to the loves and the lives of some singularly special, Talented people.  Rich in detail and well developed characterizations, The Scholar’s Heart is an emotionally fraught romance true to the previous books.  Etan and Tristan allow others to carry them forward until finally, they take the reins and the responsibility.  Weaving several plotlines within the story everything ties together by the exciting climax.  Fans will love their return to Tournai. This series should be read in order to fully appreciate the characters dynamics.  Dive into The Scholar’s Heart where mysteries, engaging characters, and an excellent storyline can be embraced.
