Tossed on the street at the tender age of fifteen after his parents die and relatives take charge, his life is destroyed because he’s gay. Robbie believes he has nowhere to turn and spends the next six years barely surviving, yet when another throwaway boy ends up in the same state Robbie shows the boy how to stay alive.  That boy is Danny, now safe and happy with his Dom Gary, who realizes the young man huddled in a box in the freezing weather is his long lost savior.

 

Hospitalized with pneumonia and severe malnutrition the submissive club from BDSM club Indiscreet rally around Robbie.  Even when he denies being a submissive the boys insist on helping Robbie get on his feet.  They already have a place for him to stay and a job once he’s well.  The subs even plan to figure out a way to legally get Robbie’s inheritance from his greedy aunt and uncle.

 

Recently hired as the Director of Security at Indiscreet, Tom Martino was a ten year veteran with the Trenton police dept before accepting his new position.  The job fits his personality nicely and he’s a big enough dreamer to wish he’d find his own submissive partner.

 

Tom learned patience as a cop which comes in handy after meeting Robbie.  No matter how hard the redhead denies it, the Dom sees his match in the naïve sub.  Robbie is having so much thrown at him at the moment.  Tom knows to quietly wait, letting the sub know he’s got his back.  When, not if, Robbie is ready to accept the truth Tom is right there.

 

The whole gang from the Indiscreet series is back to meddle and love again.  Binding Robbie sensitively entertains with an uplifting story about a homeless young man and a lonely adult.  The character driven tale zeroes in on a difficult subject matter.  Robbie is lucky in a kind of pay it forward once in a blue moon situation.  The BDSM aspect is clearly explained though physical actions are very light.  Each new drama is well laid out except perhaps Robbie’s mental issues.  For the most part his problems are understandable, yet suddenly at the end it’s much worse?  Regardless, Binding Robbie is a feel good, entertaining story and makes much of the camaraderie from the gang at Indiscreet.

Gage Chapman excelled on the NRHA circuit with the help of his Paint stallion The Shaman.  Being openly gay was a determent to his popularity, especially with the other riders in the circuit.

 

Once he retires it’s a huge decision, a risky one for Gage to transfer everything he owns from Utah to a new facility for his horses in North Carolina, but it’s the right one for him.  Gage pours his life savings into upgrading the barns and all the rest to make a permanent home at Fresh Paint Ranch.  With hard work and time the ranch is thriving.  Gage’s relationship with Deputy Collin Maddox was also going strong until the trainer realized that his lover has no intention of openly dating in their community.

 

Word of Hurricane Lauris’s imminent arrival sends the townspeople scurrying for cover.  Gage doesn’t have that option however with too many horses and too little time to move them.  As Lauris begins to blow in Collin arrives at the ranch.  Even though it’s been months since Gage broke things off the flames still burn bright between them.  If only Collin wasn’t so concerned with everyone knowing about him they’d have a real chance at a relationship.  The power of the hurricane is nothing compared to the strength of their passions.

 

Charming characters and high drama.  Authentic issues play out against a backdrop of Mother Nature’s wrath in Gage and Collin.  The first book in an exciting new series focuses on the complexities of relationships and the emotional ties that test love.  Believable characters and an engaging plotline make Gage and Collin an excellent beginning.  Their story feels real which makes it all the more enjoyable.

Michigan Sevion has a high stress career as a diagnostician at Gelreen Memorial Hospital.  Working alongside his vampire family at the hospital and living near each other can have its downside, but the Sevion family sticks together.

 

Recently one of Michigan’s brothers found his mate.  The trouble Dakota went through enforced the diagnostician’s desire to steer clear of any entanglements with his own future mate.  To find one’s mate, their sufletul pereche is supposed to be every vampire’s goal.  Michigan doesn’t want the drama, there’s enough of that with his loving family on any given day.

 

Apparently Michigan’s wishes don’t count because he’s introduced to his mate, talented chef Lucas Jaxson and now the clock is ticking. The human and the vampire have two weeks to bond otherwise Michigan will suffer the thirst and die.  If their rushed relationship wasn’t difficult enough an enemy of the family makes everything so much worse.  Michigan’s bonding just went from troubled to almost impossible.  Meanwhile, the clock never stops counting down.

 

The second installment in The Sevion Brotherhood series ramps up the drama to full throttle.  In Michigan the vampire and his chef face major hurdles head on with dignity and tense honesty.  Michigan offers a fresh breath of air to a tried and true plotline using engaging characters and an enemy worth hating.  The rocky romance satisfies on every level and whet’s the appetite for the next brother’s story.
