A wizard couple bent on revenge unwisely kidnaps the dragon king’s brother, Prince Ember Coruscate.  As their nephews Valda and Mykles quietly free the prince a gargoyle and another dragon hurry to save their friend.

 

For as long as he can remember Roar Sliger has loved Ember.  Unfortunately the dragon prince has lusted after the muscle bound, clueless dragon Flame since they were introduced.  If only Ember would see Roar as more than a friend.  The journey home may be Roar’s best chance of convincing Ember that together they can be something special, something more.  It’s time for the gargoyle to take that risk.  All or nothing the time is now.

 

An enthusiastic plotline, witty dialogue, and a zany cast of characters meld into Once Upon a Prince.  Drama and humor vie for attention in this screwy kidnap/rescue story.  One note of caution however, the romance is the focus, the back story is lite and the cast large.  Avoid confusion and read this series in order.  Once Upon a Prince is a quick, thoroughly mad ride.

Flame the dragon is set on rescuing dragon prince Ember from cutthroat wizards.  Instead, he discovers the prince has been set free by the two nephew wizards of the bad ones.  Complicating matters one of the good wizards turns out to be Flame’s mate.

 

As much as Flame is certain that Valda Rollins is his mate the wizard insists that he is not.  Long ago Valda lost his lover to rogue dragons and he has never forgiven them, all of them.  He spends his life on the high seas as a pirate.  Valda definitely does not have time for a muscle bound, sexy dragon.

 

When Marabell, the fairy godmother, and Glenda the wand tell the pair that they must go to the cloud plain, which is found in the middle of the ocean, to bring Frick and Frack back to the dragon kingdom the pair have no choice except obey.  They are well aware that ignoring Marabell and Glenda would not be wise.  Flame is hoping that he can get Valda to change his mind.  Valda is hoping the dragon will drop the subject.  Should be an interesting voyage.

 

Readers are treated to another wild and crazy tale in Book 4 of the Ever After series titled Once Upon a Pirate.  Humor, snappy dialogue, and a healthy dose of emotional angst bring Flame and Valda together.  Such a happy couple.  Well, eventually.  Once Upon a Pirate promises a good laugh and delivers.

As goalie for the state champion OceanTownship soccer team Jason Monroe was able to receive a full scholarship for college out of state.  A part-time job didn’t take away from excellent grades, only gave him extra money to send home to his cash-strapped father, step-mom, and little sister Kitty.  His parents’ tragic car accident destroyed Jason’s academic future.  With so little money left Jason was forced to return home so that he could raise three year old Kitty.  The only other option was for Kitty to end up in foster care.

 

A year later Jason is barely surviving the financial burden.  Two jobs are only just keeping them afloat and Jason is exhausted all the time.  With no other family to help they wouldn’t have made it this far if not for the help of good friends and fellow team mates.

 

Last year Jason missed his twenty-first birthday because the accident happened a week prior to his big day.  This year his team mates are determined to make up for the loss and take Jason out.  Though his friends are all straight they happily take their team mate to a gay club to celebrate.

 

All night long Jason’s been eyeing a guy at the other end of the bar. And the stranger’s been watching him just as often.  When he doesn’t make a move his best friend Bobby takes matters into his own hands and introduces Jason to Zach Montgomery, who happens to co-own the bar along with many other properties.

 

Zach’s always had a firm policy of avoiding relationships at all costs.  He’s strictly a no strings, one night stand kind of guy.  The rules worked well until Zach meets the twenty-two year old virgin with the weight of the world on his shoulders.  Wanting to share the burden is a foreign concept.  At least it used to be until Jason stole his heart and he fell in love with Kitty.  Now he simply has to make Jason believe it’s true.

 

You In My Arms tells a lovely, tender romantic tale.  The characters handle the joys and sorrows of everyday life with dignity.  Jason is buried under responsibility, his pure heart shines while Zach’s past tempers his feelings.  At Jason’s lowest point their feelings finally bring their romance into the light.  It may take awhile to become immersed in You In My Arms because the empathy doesn’t quite come across as soon as expected, but it does eventually and then You In My Arms does shine.  The wait is worth it.  By the last page readers will cheer these lovers on.

The one great thing in his life is Shunichi ‘Shun’ Miyamoto, a black belt master with a successful Dojo in town.  He met Shun when he signed up to take a few lessons and the rest is history.  Years of one night stands are in the past and recently they shared a first anniversary celebration.

 

Out of the blue an incredible opportunity comes along for Brandon to play the Phantom again on Broadway.  Unfortunately, New York isn’t around the corner.  It’s been a dream of Brandon’s to act there, but what will that mean for his relationship with Shun?  Broadway’s always been a nebulous dream.  Shun is his soul mate.  How can he choose?

 

Torn between his soul and his heart Brandon is Acting on Love and willing to pay the price for the right answer.  The Conquest series returns with an emotional outpouring from a major character introduced in the early books.  Their love is unquestionable, Brandon’s burning ambition for the big lights just as important, or is it?  A dilemma or an unsolvable heartache is explored in Acting on Love.  Engaging dialogue, great characters, and a smart romance sets Acting on Love firmly on the keeper shelf. Oh, and the sex is out of this world. Hot.

Adrian is the youngest of the princes of Merish.  There are three elder brothers more physically powerful and skilled with weapons, but when all is said and done they love each other as equals.  Though Adrian may not be battle worthy he does have other talents they deem worthy.  Their kingdom is a peaceful one with a major trade route cutting through their borders.

 

While the King and Queen are away visiting a neighboring ruler the palace of Merish is attacked and overthrown by soldiers from the kingdom of Kitar.  Their general leaves the other princes behind as leverage and forces Adrian to return to Kitar as a slave for the prince who planned the Merish takeover.

 

The virginal prince is now the property of Prince Magnus, the middle and despised son of Kitar’s king.  Adrian witnesses the disgusting depravity and debauchery of the King and his sycophant royals.  All but Prince Magnus, toady to the sadistic, vicious king.

 

Prince Magnus has secretly devised a strategy to free himself and his soldiers from Kitar.  And Adrian is the key.  Under normal circumstances slaves are broken by their new masters within the palace.  The prince however needs Adrian to fulfill his goals.  To that end Magnus begins to seduce Adrian.  His feelings will not be involved or so Magnus thought.

 

Author Meg Harding doesn’t pull any punches, doesn’t hold back from realistic savagery here.  A Prince for a Kingdom is difficult and yet addicting at the same time.  Prepare yourself for an edgy intensity unlike most other fantasy romances.  What sets A Prince for a Kingdom apart is the skillful way the story twists. Adrian’s dark days are barely survivable.  His relationship with Magnus evolves into something entirely different, something both characters can accept and live with.  Witness the bad and the good in the riveting A Prince for a Kingdom.
