Blacksmith Abner Johnson is one of the small number of humans who are well aware of the paranormal world.  The recent death of his sister and the unwanted attentions of a vampire have made Abner reassess his life.  A fresh start at a new coven out West is the answer.

 

Rescued after years and years of abuse by the pack Alpha and his cronies, the dingo shifter Pascal has ironically settled in at a vampire coven.  Of course, it helps that his two brothers are mated to coven members.  If only his brothers would understand and accept that Pascal has certain sexual needs for submission.

 

The very last thing Abner is looking for is a relationship with a shifter.  What he doesn’t understand and Pascal is too shy to articulate is the incredible force behind true mates.  Fighting fate is pointless.  Try telling that to the stubborn human.

 

A truly difficult relationship unfolds in The Strike of Hot Iron.  Hard headed Abner is the epitome of trouble for a sweet natured submissive shifter.  Miscommunication is the problem, as usual.  Between Abner’s refusal to unbend and Pascal’s inability to tell his mate the truth major headaches insure.  The cold human and tenderhearted shifter doesn’t seem like a good pairing, but The Strike of Hot Iron is able to give readers a ‘feel good’ worthwhile ending.

Abandoned as a child Adisa Derringer was found and raised by the Horseman of War. When Adisa grew up he chose a career as an Enforcer for the Shifter Council.  At the moment he’s in the doghouse for not following the orders of a narrow minded, arrogant council member.  Lucky for Adisa that council member Grandis is willing to request his services.

 

Reports have reached the Shifter Council which must be looked into involving the Stone Ridge pack.  An anonymous source is saying that Alpha Declan McIntire and his pack is getting power hungry.  Councilman Grandis must investigate the claim.

 

Adisa and Grandis aren’t there long before a problem arises, a big problem in the form of a feral shifter recently rescued after years of captivity.  The huge wolf is so messed up and so aggressive he’s unable to shift to human.  And he’s Adisa’s mate who’s now torn between protecting his charge or getting through to his mate.  The timing certainly sucks.

 

A multi-layered plotline showcases a wild and bumpy ride titled Succumbing to His Nature.  The incredibly popular Wolves of Stone Ridge series celebrates book 41 with special shifter mates involved in a tangled adventure.  Satisfying from start to finish.  Succumbing to His Nature adds another winner to a very long list.

Giles Corsair joined a secretive group known as the Priests to rid the world of demons.  It was also a way to get out from under his controlling mother’s rigid rule.  Believing he’s come across a nest of demons Giles becomes the one captured.  He refuses to accept that he’s found an innocent coven of vampires rather than the evil demons he’s expected to destroy.

 

It is coming upon the thousandth year of life for Thanach.  On this very special anniversary the demon will be rewarded for his service to the Horseman of War.  Thanach will be given an amina to bond with, someone meant for him alone.

 

The Horseman of War sends Thanach on a mission to Earth, to the home of Master Dante’s coven.   Following an unexpected, intoxicating scent the demon is led to the basement cell of the Priest Giles.  The duty of a Priest is to destroy demons.  Nobody ever told Giles about vampires or the true purpose of demons, let alone what fate has in store for the human…

 

The Priest’s Perspective is completely upended in the latest drama from the popular series.  Snatching at wisps of hope and lots of patience Thanach has his hands full with the stubborn human in this unlikely romance.  As usual, with this series the characters are what keep the plotlines fresh and entertaining.  Enjoy The Priest’s Perspective for all the right reasons, the story completely satisfies.
