In the year 2050 Earth was invaded by creatures people called Outwarders.  Tall, ugly aliens, they were difficult to destroy and would kill several humans before they were taken down.

 

The city of Detroit was in ruins.  Jared is well aware he’s in charge because his superiors have died.  Humanity is hanging by a thread.  They are losing the fight and as if that wasn’t bad enough a small group of humans have gone completely crazy, doing hideous things to their own people on the fringes of the city.

 

Injured are being treated by Avis who doesn’t even hold a degree, yet he’s better than the veterinarian they’ve got to rely on.  If they can’t come up with some way to fight the enemy, the Outwarders will own the planet and humanity will simply be a memory.

 

A chilling look at the world’s end begins in Opposites Assent.  This first installment sets the scene for a population on the brink.  Their harsh, bleak existence comes across, as does Jared and Avis’s feelings for each other.  Disaster and triumph Opposites Assent is not a world for romance, yet Jared and Avis find a way.

Published by MLR Press Genres: MM, Paranormal

Odin James would be willing to do just about anything to turn back time and change the outcome of one horrific night seven months ago.  He and his best friend Sebastian Norris were walking home from a bar when Bas was gunned down in front of Odin.  Barely managing to escape it’s been a nightmare ever since as first police and then the FBI were unable to protect Odin.  All because Bas was murdered by Warren Mortimer, the all powerful, influential Alpha of the dingo shifters.

 

Smoked again, Odin’s FBI handler Patric Charles hands his witness off to Tom Wylie.  Taciturn and withdrawn the former solider lives off the grid since he left his career behind.  Tom is also a wolf shifter beta in line to eventually lead the wolves.

 

What should have been a safe house where they could lay low is proven a dangerous trap.  Someone wants Odin badly and they’re willing to go to any lengths to capture him.  There must be more going on than the trial against Mortimer.  As far as Tom is concerned the moment he touched Odin ensured he’d give his life for him.  At long last the wolf has found his mate.  Whatever it takes Odin will survive and they will figure out what’s going on.  Whatever it takes.

 

A strong balance of tension, engaging characters, and action culminates in Lay Your Body Down.  Marked for death the shy witness isn’t sure who to trust until he lands in Tom’s capable hands.  Twists and turns are meagerly doled out as this story unfolds.  A multi layered tale, Lay Your Body Down works especially well because of the chemistry between the main characters.  Sit down, put your feet up, and enjoy the wild adventure of Lay Your Body Down.

Published by MLR Press Genres: MM, Paranormal

Alpha Etienne Daurensbourg is a centuries old wolf shifter who sits on the Loup Garou Council of North America, works for Garou Industries, and controls a large pack headquartered in Chicago.  Certainly a full life, yet he’d trade it all away if it meant finding his mate.

 

Apparently the gods were listening and took pity on Etienne as he meets former prostitute Julio Reyes visiting the mate of a Council member.  Julio has been saving his earnings as an independent prostitute so that he can go to college and someday start a hair salon and day spa.  With the help of Alpha Davidoff and his mate Donal, a former prostitute, Julio is about to have his dream come true. Needless to say, Julio believes he doesn’t have time for a relationship though the sexy Etienne does interest him.

 

When a vicious attack almost kills Julio everything he’d planned takes a step back.  This isn’t the way Etienne wanted to woo his mate especially, when he keeps having setbacks.  All that matters now is healing Julio.  The next step will take some serious discussions.

 

Truly a nail biter at times, Julio’s Wolf grabs the reader with engaging, intriguing characters and a pulse pounding direct plotline.  Julio and Etienne’s compelling romance is more emotional than others in this popular series.  The fast paced, consistently intense storyline works well within the frame work laid out.  A riveting drama, Julio’s Wolf is the real deal – Julio has met his match.

As the ship heads for Titan the unimaginable happens.  Someone is murdered.  Commander Zero offers his help to Cal who’s unaware that Zero was momentarily trapped in the killer’s mind.  As the body count rises so does Cal’s suspicions.  Zero knows too much, so either he’s the killer or his mind cannot be blocked.  Cal wishes he didn’t need to find the answer to his question.

DEMON DUKE by S. J. FrostDemon Duke by S. J. Frost
Series: Paranormal Nobles #2
Published by MLR Press Genres: MM, Paranormal

Calvin Blackwood is a powerful natural witch with the potential for more.  None of his gifts make a difference however in saving his big brother Nathan who’s slowly dying.  The young witch decides to ask the demon he met last month during a deadly battle with vampires to grant him a request.  He will offer himself as payment for curing Nathan.

 

It’s been weeks since the vampire fight, yet Calvin can’t get the sexy, red haired demon duke out of his head.  He wasn’t even frightened by the demon’s true form, which normally scares the bejeezus out of humans.  Regardless, Calvin has to set aside his lust for the demon and get him to heal his brother.

 

Duke Sallos or Sal is finding it hard to understand why he can’t forget the cute human witch.  Usually it’s easy come, easy go with humans, but for some reason he’s fixated on Calvin.

 

Summoning Sal one night proves disastrous on so many levels.  It also unfortunately leaves the brothers vulnerable to the machinations of another.  Nothing good comes of dealing with demons they say.  Maybe something great happens instead.

 

Steamy hot and engaging Demon Duke satisfies on every level.  Complex, interesting characters come alive in the second Paranormal Nobles tale.  Sexy encounters within a riveting plotline ensure enjoyment in reading Demon Duke.  Calvin and Sal are spirited, complicated characters, and potent lovers who make Demon Duke an absolute page turner.
