Series: Werewolves in Manhattan #5
Published by MLR Press


 

Barely a teenager Donal Berne left what looked like a safe, wealthy existence.  No one suspected that behind closed doors his step father was abusing him and his mother looked the other way.  Running away Donal arrives at the NYC Port Authority.  He is promptly scooped up by Vittorio Apuso, a cruel and vicious pimp who gets the victim hooked on drugs and then forces the boy into prostitution.

 

The Russian wolf pack hierarchy is run with money and power.  Ideas of honor and respect aren’t followed.  Alpha Alexi Davidoff, the pack’s second, does believe in decent values.   When male members of his household are murdered for holding hands in public Alexi joins a peaceful protest march in their honor.  He’s arrested and spends the next three years in prison, abused and tortured on a daily basis.

 

After his people finally are able to obtain his release Alexi flies to Colorado to take the reins of his mother’s inheritance as the pack leader.  From there he flies to NYC to join the Loup Garou Council of North America as their 5th and take a position at Garou Industries. Jogging late at night in the park he follows an incredible scent and comes across his mate – dying from a self-inflicted drug overdose. With all he’s been through surely the gods won’t let his little mouse die.  Alexi has searched for more than a century.  He can’t lose his mate now.

 

Alexi’s Mouse is a charming tale mixing eroticism with heart and soul. Perhaps light in surprises, Alexi’s Mouse is nonetheless bursting with love.  A clever blend of tenderness and devotion balanced with heartbreak and terror.  Donal and Alexi have led parallel lives, suffered and survived.  The intense wealth is like a fantasy come true. The scars they carry internally will never be completely erased but together they endure.  A lovely dream come true, Donal gets the fairy tale with his Alpha in Alexi’s Mouse.

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.
