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.

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.

ONCE UPON A PRINCE by Jambrea Jo JonesOnce Upon A Prince by Jambrea Jo Jones
Series: Ever After #3
Published by MLR Press Genres: Fantasy, MM

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.

Series: Ever After #4
Published by MLR Press Genres: Fantasy, MM

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.

YOU IN MY ARMS by A. C. KattYou In My Arms by A. C. Katt
Series: The Sunset Club #1
Published by MLR Press Genres: Contemporary, MM

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.
