Settled in yet another small home Austin’s Owl Parliament continues to survive and stand strong against all the homophobic Owl Parliaments who kicked out each member of their little group.

 

Their newest outcast, Gene who they rescued from prison is still surprised that they went to the trouble of saving him.  He’d been in the owl prison for about five years and before that he’d bounced from one Parliament to another because of his smart mouth and attitude.  The final straw was finding out that he’s gay.

 

In an attempt to bring needed income to the group Gene accepts a job as a go-go dancer at a gay bar.  Without any real skills it’s the only job he can find. Plus it will get Gene out of the house and away from the object of his nightly naughty dreams, Leon, another member of Austin’s Owl Parliament.

 

Gene’s first day as a go-go dancer is a debacle.  Leon does have feelings for their newest member and watching strangers pawing him doesn’t go down well.  With emotions running high it doesn’t help to learn that a group of praying mantis shifters are after Gene because of his family name.  Dodging homophobe owls and now a bunch of crazy bugs, what’s next to stop Gene and Leon from bonding?

 

Take a wild ride with snarky birds in Taming an Owl.  A fast paced story with engaging characters whose whirlwind adventure never ends.  In book two of the Flushing Owl series Gene’s unknown secrets are revealed as Leon comes to the rescue.  Spoiler alert: Gene and Leon work things out, but nothing else is resolved.  Spicy and passionate Taming an Owl cements the mates’ relationship but leaves everything else hanging until the next story.

Lee doesn’t know how long he’s been imprisoned. At this point he’s lost track of time.  He’s been sealed in a room with a hatch at the floor that allows a sandwich and water once a day.  A glimpse of a hand is his only contact with the outside world. His last memory of being free was the day of the car accident that killed his mother and put Lee in a wheelchair permanently.

 

Deciding that it’s past time to give up Lee stopped eating several days ago.  The voice in his head is further proof that Lee’s lost it as far as he’s concerned.  Unfortunately this little voice is persistently insisting that Lee hold on, that he will be rescued soon.

 

Humoring the voice in his head Lee starts eating again even though he’s certain nothing will change.  When a break in the wall of his prison begins to appear and two gorgeous men step through Lee’s first thought is that his sanity finally snapped.  It’s not possible that twin fey guardians are there to rescue Lee.  Not possible at all.

 

A poignant, heartbreaking tale of acceptance and redemption Beyond the Scars warms the soul.  Lee’s situation is so emotionally disturbing and demands satisfaction for everything he’s gone through.  The fey twins, Arra and Cruz also carry heavy baggage from their past.  Beyond the Scars features a strong plotline with a nicely done twist that elevates Lee beautifully.  The Preternatural Rescue Centre series continues to excel with each successive story.  Heat, adventure, and camaraderie win the day again.

For more than a year omega wolf shifter Grant has taken care of his 13 year old sister Kaylie.  Barely out of his teens Grant was forced to take charge after their small farm was attacked by shadowkin.  Their parents died while giving Grant and Kaylie the time to escape.  On the run the siblings came across Peter, the survivor of another farm attack.  The threesome has protected each other since that fateful night.

 

They’ve managed to live cheaply at a rundown motel in town on Grant’s low paying job.  Their biggest difficulty is acquiring blood on a weekly basis for Kaylie who suffers from diabetes.  Grant made a deal with a vampire trading sex for blood.  The vampire believes he’s having sex with Grant when in reality the omega wolf is able to manufacture the illusion of a sexual encounter.  It takes a lot out of Grant each week but he’d do anything for his sister.  When the vampire brings an elf along for some ‘fun’ Grant is forced to push himself to the limit.

 

Nico, a guardian warlock, spent the day checking out rumors at the dock and comes up empty.  Stopping in a bar for a quick drink Nico overhears a pair of elves making disgusting plans for some unsuspecting stranger.  Charging to the rescue Nico is unaware of Grant’s gift and inadvertently makes things worse when the omega wolf loses control.  The warlock and the omega wolf mates will never forget their first meeting.

 

Irresistible characters and their high energy romance hit the bull’s eye.  Book four in the Preternatural Rescue Centre series satisfies on every level in Controlling His Illusion.  Their story has warmth, passion, and chaos in all the right places.  Grant and Nico sizzle with sexual tension and desire as their romance unfolds.  Controlling His Illusion features well drawn characters with realistic emotional drama readers are sure to embrace.  Enjoy.

The guardians are doing everything possible to chip away at dark elf Denzel’s powerbase.  To that end when they get the opportunity to do some damage guardian vampire Dante volunteers for the job.  Unfortunately the enemy is alerted to Dante’s arrival and flees.

 

Dante may be too late to stop the entire structure from blowing since the whole place is set to explode, but he is able to save Sonny, a mute servant chained to Denzel’s bedroom floor and used as a blood donor.  With only moments to spare Dante is forced to make a life altering decision in order to save Sonny.  Hopefully someday the young fey will forgive the vampire because Dante knows they are mates and meant to be together, forever.  Whatever it takes.

 

Another bumpy guardian courtship leads to love in Silent Secrets, the sixth book in the exciting Preternatural Rescue Centre series.  Dante and Sonny’s romance is front and center in this plotline though the guardians have an important secondary role too.  Sonny gathers his courage and shines staking his claim as a valuable member of the guardian team and a worthy mate for Dante.  The series has sympathetic characters with emotional issues, interesting plotlines, and addicting mysteries to engage readers. Another winner!

Five years ago Adam lost the love of his life to an aneurysm.  It was so senseless. Declan went to sleep and never woke.  They may not have been mates in the truest sense but their love was real.  With the holidays approaching Adam knows it’s past time to get rid of the old Christmas decorations Declan kept stored in the attic.  Taking the dusty old boxes of stuff to the dumpster behind his apartment actually lightens Adam’s heart once he’s finished.  Even letting go of a few pieces of Declan’s forgotten, moth eaten clothing wasn’t as painful as he thought it would be.   It’s time to make new memories, maybe even help decorate at the Delta Rehabilitation Centre.

 

Spending his free time at the Centre gives Adam a sense of purpose.  A unique hybrid Adam is a wolf shifter and human with some Wiccan thrown in.  Though not a natural healer he seems to have an uncanny skill picking out the right herbs or concoction to help someone ill or injured.

 

An elderly neighbor’s cat has become Adam’s night time companion these days.  This particular evening the cat is acting weird.  Humoring the cat’s behavior becomes a blessing in disguise when he discovers a vampire dying in his dumpster.  Cole Gantry, a newly turned vampire and Adam’s true mate. Surrounded by dusty boxes from the past is the wolf hybrid’s future, but only if he can save Cole.

 

Cole in his Stocking is absolutely addicting.  Readers are treated to an entertaining blend of romance, suspense and before the end there are clever twists for additional storyline pleasure.  Adam and Cole bring heavy baggage to their relationship and work through their issues together as the story evolves.  Between an exciting plotline, likeable characters, and the temptation of more Cole in his Stocking is a clear cut winner.
