For the crime of being gay omega Dire Wolf Clark is condemned to a slow, painful death by his own Alpha Bern.  The prison he inhabits is a shallow hole in the ground covered by bars.  Starving, covered in open sores and bruises, as well as given a shot to stop his ability to shift and heal, Clark is dying, hour by hour.

 

Barely alive Clark is rescued by his cousin Lillian, the one family member with a shred of kindness.   She heads for the pack lands of Alpha Bishop.  There are rumors of tolerance within his pack so it’s their best chance for sanctuary.

 

Granted asylum, Alpha Bishop feels an immediate wash of protectiveness as he gazes at the battered body on the gurney.  Bishop’s main worry is whether his little omega will survive the night.   Next is concern for the violent Bern who’s sure to come looking for his missing prisoner.  Christmas Eve is approaching and suddenly everything has changed for a lonely Alpha and a young omega who’d given up hope.

 

The holiday season has fresh meaning for a newly formed pack in Deck the Dire Wolves.  Focusing on a horrific situation the story evolves into one of promise and hope.  This fast paced, ultimately cheery romance charms with the spirit of the coming holiday.  By the time the story is done Deck the Dire Wolves will leave the reader with a heartwarming feeling.

SONG OF SOULS by S. J. FrostSong of Souls by S. J. Frost
Series: Terra #3
Published by MLR Press Genres: Fantasy, MM

It may not be the most lucrative career, yet Lark wouldn’t trade his gift of song and lute playing for anything in the world.  The same couldn’t be said of his gift for seeing and communicating with the souls of the dead.  Lark’s special talent most definitely causes problems with the love of his life.

 

Master thief Zain, also known as the assassin Black Fox, has never failed on a mission.  Falling in love with a minstrel who can see the souls of the dead is causing all kinds of difficulties between them, though if asked Zain would as soon cut off his talented arm as stop loving Lark.

 

Things have been quiet lately in Forest’s End, maybe too quiet.  At least it seemed so until bodies began turning up.  An evil permeates the poor sections of town.  An attempt on Lark’s life one late evening adds to the feeling of danger.  Someone is stalking the minstrel and it’s not for his beautiful voice, at least not completely.  Lark and Zain may be forced to call upon their friends to help them rid Forest’s End of an ancient enemy.  Their love will certainly be put to the test.  As long as Zain doesn’t break Lark’s heart everything else can be worked out.  Including catching a monster.

 

Tumble into the third spellbinding Terra tale Song of Souls.  A rich blend of fantasy, romance, and drama takes readers on an incredibly lush, addictive ride.  This well written masterful plotline opens the door to tell Lark and Zain’s difficult love story.   Song of Souls focuses on the lovers, but characters from previous books return to help save the day.  Fans will love hearing from everyone in the large cast in this standalone tale.  Author S.J. Frost has boundless imagination where the world of Terra is concerned, Song of Souls is the latest magical offering.  And accepted with great pleasure.

MARKING KANE by A. C. KattMarking Kane by A. C. Katt
Series: Werewolves of Manhattan #4
Published by MLR Press Genres: MM, Paranormal

Kane Brady left the rural Midwest for the big city hoping to be able to openly explore his sexuality.  The death of his beloved father meant a chance at a new life.  With a degree in teaching Kane chose McClellan High School in New York.  What he didn’t expect was continual confrontations with the basketball coach and two of his students who played on the team and refused to do assigned work.  Kane’s refusal to bow to their threats had horrific repercussions.

 

Alpha Gabriel Martin is thrilled that three of the other Alphas have found their mates in a relatively short period of time.  Repeated prayers to their goddesses have Gabriel hoping for the best.

 

Barely surviving the brutal attack Kane literally falls into Gabriel’s arms on a snow packed street.  He doesn’t understand why a complete stranger is willing to take him home and treat him like spun gold while helping him heal.  Kane is too badly traumatized at the moment to figure out the mystery that is Gabriel.  To accept that they are destined mates and that the Alpha will do whatever it takes to help Kane recover.

 

Marking Kane is simply the beginning for an Alpha and his fated mate.  Book four in the Werewolves of Manhattan series is the latest excellent addition.  Considering the difficult subject matter Marking Kane is a sensitive, emotional story that manages to keep the reader firmly involved in Kane and Gabriel’s complicated romance.  Goddess given intervention aside, Marking Kane is a compelling book that works.  This series keeps getting better and better.

SCARRED MATE by A. C. KattScarred Mate by A. C. Katt
Series: Werewolves of Manhattan #3
Published by MLR Press Genres: MM, Paranormal

A freak accident badly scars eleven year old Colin Callahan’s face.  Between his father’s feelings of guilt and his mother’s unwillingness to forgive their little family is fractured forever.  By the time Colin is an adult his parents are both gone, leaving him with nothing more than sad memories and a permanent scar.

 

Third on the North American loup garou Council, Alpha Marc Thierry would rather be back home in the wilds of the Great Lakes states or parts of Canada than the brownstones of NYC any day.  Duty calls however and Marc is ever obedient to the needs of his people and his Alpha.

 

Fate gives Marc the best reason of all for being in the city after he orders Chinese for dinner on the cook’s night off.  The young man delivering his meal is none other than his mate.

 

Internally Marc is frantic to keep Colin at his side now that he’s found his mate while externally he’s forced to take things slowly so as not to spook his human.  Desperately insecure because of the scar Colin can’t understand why the suave, sexy Marc is interested in him.  It’s difficult enough to accept a loup garou lover. But, bottom line – does Marc want him because they are supposed to mate or because he loves him?

 

The perfect balance of action, fascinating characters, and taut tension, Scarred Mate absolutely delivers a wonderful story.  Colin is a walking, talking ball of emotional angst living in a bubble of his own making, while Marc desperately yearns for a mate.  The addition of characters from the first two books in the series brings another delightful layer to this tale.  Scarred Mate is a riveting, emotionally challenging romance definitely worth reading.  Hopefully there’s a fourth book somewhere on the horizon.

Series: Werewolves of Manhattan #2
Published by MLR Press Genres: MM, Paranormal

Chief Alpha for all of the North American werewolves Armand Le Marche has honored Remy Clavier by naming him as second in command to the North American Council of werewolves.  It is a valued position and one that Remy would love – to refuse.  Remy never lobbied for the job, the responsibility, and the headaches aren’t worth the power he’s receiving.

 

A huge house in Brooklyn has been chosen as Remy’s home base.  The property is large enough for him, his two Betas, and the rest of the staff.  Other homes in the area are also being purchased.  The only work left to complete in Remy’s home is the paint work.

 

Two weeks ago Ian Sullivan lost his father and older brother Billy in a car accident.  On the one hand they were the only family Ian had left, on the other his father’s life long verbal abuse and Billy’s lack of backbone weren’t going to be missed.  They had all worked together in a family painting business and now Ian is alone.

 

With their accidental death and paperwork a mess their wills are in probate forcing Ian to use all his own savings to bury them.  At their funerals he is blindsided by Sal Ferrara, a loan shark demanding Ian pay Billy’s sizeable debts or else he will become the thug’s next bed warmer.

 

Ian’s only hope of a reprieve is to win the bid on a new paint contract.  His world’s been turned upside down already.  Wait till he meets his new client. A werewolf and his mate.

 

The Werewolves of Manhattan series returns to entertain readers with another pulse pounding tale in Remy’s Painter.  Single minded Remy takes one look at Ian and all bets are off.  Skillfully blending a riveting romance with a dark drama Remy’s Painter is a definite page turner.  A realistic vibe within a werewolf framework there’s something for everyone to enjoy.  Remy’s Painter will leave readers hungry for the next book.
