College student Kai Sudderson and his friends are enjoying the summer before school starts up again.  A large pond system nearby is the perfect place for Kai to relax and swim in his platypus shifter form.  His human friends have known for years that he can transform into a platypus, his aunt and uncle who raised him are unaware of what their nephew can do.  It was hard enough for them to accept that he was gay, never mind tell them he’s a shifter.

 

Taking a dip in the pond Kai becomes snagged in a beaver trap.  He’s all alone and unable to shift without causing further damage and tiring quickly.  Just when Kai becomes desperate for help he is saved by a small penguin shifter.

 

After the rescue he’s excited to meet a whole group of shifters.  Kai has never met anyone like him before and even though his human friends are the best it’s great to find other shifters.  One in particular fascinates the college senior, Dorian Yaris.  Kai doesn’t understand the significance of mates, yet he feels a strong pull towards the older shifter.

Life is about experiencing new things, Kai and Dorian have only begun.

 

Leave it to author Charlie Richards to come up with another enjoyable Kontra’s Menagerie storyline filled with interesting, flawed characters.  Kai is an unusual shifter type yet he’s got human friends who love him and a brand new life with his mate Dorian.  His human family offers additional tension and issues to work through.  Educating the Platypus features intriguing challenges and a great deal of fun.

He should have died during the fight with the Horde.  The hellhound should have torn him apart, but he didn’t.  Oren survived, never expecting that his fight with the hellhound Daegal would change them both in ways no one saw coming.

 

Maybe their exchange was meant to be.  If not for Daegal’s assistance Oren’s friends wouldn’t have been able to escape captivity after being kidnapped.  Only with the hellhound’s aid did they survive and get home, bringing their savior with them.

 

What do they do now with a hellhound at the compound?  Their sworn enemy in their midst?  Oren hates the bond they share from biting each other.  Daegal hates feeling emotions for the first time in his life.  He doesn’t know how to deal with them.  Both in pain, neither giving ground.  Their suffering cannot continue.  Taking the first step to forgiveness is up to Oren.  One step at a time.

 

Tense, gut wrenching emotion is a constant in the high octane tale Full Moon Hellhound.  Deep sorrow and angst flavor this edgy drama from start to finish.  The mental battle between Oren and Daegal is all encompassing, only when the sometimes insurmountable issues are resolved does their sexual battle begin.  Full Moon Hellhound concentrates on two damaged souls who shouldn’t stand a chance.

Surviving captivity at the hands of humans for over twenty five years Iberian lynx Roland is rescued along with several others   At one time Roland was caged with Vane, a gargoyle.  The lynx was sold to another owner and soon after Vane was freed vowing to one day locate and release Roland.  Vane never expected it to take so long.

 

The clutch of gargoyles in Durango immediately offers Roland sanctuary.  Before he has time to settle into a life of freedom Tobias, the clutch second announces that they are mates.  At four hundred years of age Tobias is overjoyed to find his mate at last and then devastated when Roland rejects him.

 

Roland refuses to saddle the gargoyle with a defective mate.  Tobias however insists they can work through any problems.  As far as Roland is concerned nothing can be done.  Nothing.  He can’t be a mate, ever.

 

Sexual intimacy takes center stage in this sensitive drama.  Roland and Tobias have a major hurdle to deal with in Coaxing His Skittish Lynx, the seventh book in A Paranormal’s Love series.  Triumphing over or solving Roland’s problems is delicately dealt with and proves that intimacy comes in many forms.  Love is of the heart and soul.  Bravo for a tender, light touch.

With time on his side because of a shifter’s longer life span, European Eagle Owl Luc Laurent has joined Kontra’s traveling motorcycle gang.  In part to spend time with his son Tim who’s mated to the big bear shifter and also to see where his own future is headed.

 

A pit stop in Kansas gives Luc the shock of his life when he finds his mate in the human cousin of a newly discovered platypus shifter.  Though the Owl had once loved a woman and fathered a son she hadn’t been his true mate. Dylan Sudderson is.

 

Dylan survived a horrific accident in childhood.  He relies on arm crutches to get around and suffers from periodic weakness and illness.  Recently Dylan learned that his cousin is a shifter and can’t believe that Kai kept something so important from him.

 

The Owl shifter and the injured human feel the pull of mates, yet there is so much against them ever getting together.  Their age difference is an issue for Luc while Dylan hasn’t told anyone he’s gay.  And his parents are rightfully protective after he almost died, his mother excessively.  Nothing will go smoothly for these mates, except their love.

 

Inflexible humans put a damper on romance in Love On an Owl’s Wing. Dylan certainly deserves happiness after all he’s gone through, and for a shifter, finding a mate is all important to Luc’s peace of mind.  The tension levels rise when Dylan pulls away from his parents and towards his mate.  This series is primarily ‘lite’ yet always manages to offer compelling storylines that entertain and make readers think.  Love On an Owl’s Wing is a winner.
