Two thousand year old Lochlann Doran wanders the human world after being cut off from the Realm, his fae home.  His worst moment happened over six hundred years ago when the last of Lochlann’s magick faded from the once powerful healer.

 

In order to survive Garrett Templar turned tricks and paid the price by contracting HIV at the tender age of eighteen.  He’s managed the disease with medication, however at his latest checkup the news wasn’t good.  For some unknown reason his illness has turned into full blown AIDS.

 

Visiting the popular bar Purgatory one night, Lochlann encounters a gorgeous dancer on a pole who captivates him.  The fae recognizes his other half in the human Garrett.  Trying to explain the Soulshare to Garrett is complicated.  Telling him that when Lochlann left the Realm his soul was torn in two, half he kept and half was thrown into the human world.  They are meant to bond and love if Garrett can believe.

 

Neither is aware that they are being manipulated by the fae versions of good and evil.  Others will become involved as well, some to help and another to ensure evil is triumphant.  Good and evil will battle for the power their bond will create.  Dare they risk it when the balance of the Realm and the human world is at stake?

 

A light shines pure in Deep Plunge for destined lovers.  The multi-layered plotline features a tentative beginning, a unity of fae and humans, and a fight between incredibly powerful forces.  Lochlann is overjoyed to find Garrett for many reasons.  As for Garrett, he’s a man who’s given up on hope and dares the fae to make him think he can begin to believe in someone else.  Deep Plunge is a love story on the surface with many murky and intriguing layers underneath.  Can be read as a standalone, but knowing secondary characters from reading the previous books is a bonus.  Enthralling and original Deep Plunge satisfies on every level.

Profits from the lovemetender.com site turned Shannon Winn into an overnight, self made billionaire.  Coming up with the chat site on his own Shannon is reaping the benefits with a gorgeous home, clothes, cars and when he snaps his fingers his assistant Justin Blake is ready and willing to scratch any itch.

Shannon periodically checks out the site with an alias to improve or catch any glitches.  He’s hooked up on line with Terry Hughes and decides to make a date.  Terry proves to be a hot, muscular stud for a night’s pleasure.  By the next day however he’s nothing more than an agreeable memory.  Unfortunately, his one night stand wants more and Terry’s persistence is beginning to get bothersome just when he’s realizing who matters most in Shannon’s world. 

Silicon Valley Sex Scandal is the latest offering in the popular Bad Boy Billionaire series.  While the premise for the storyline is interesting, Shannon is not a character anyone will cheer for.  Granted he had a rough start in life which is covered in the book, but even with some leeway he never endears himself to readers. Justin barely charms and Terry is purposefully creepy.  Lots of sex without any emotional ties, and long narratives leave something lacking in Silicon Valley Sex Scandal.  Somehow the heart is missing in this story.

It is the third strike for cabaret singer/pianist Rory Daniels in the relationship game with the end of his latest so called marriage.  A true romantic, Rory always believes that it will last forever until it falls apart.  It seems the only relationship Rory is good at is the one with his ten year old adopted son, Dane.

On the brink of scrambling for a new home the singer’s agent has a place for them that offers a year’s lease. The only catch is that they have to babysit a parrot for the apartment owner who will be out of the country for the next twelve months. 

What seems to be too good to be true, a great apartment for a year, becomes a nightmare when the owner comes home.  Award winning singer/actor Drew Steiger is back because he says the acting gig fell through.  Rory and Dane have nowhere else to live, Drew insists they stay so what could go wrong?  Maybe the fact that Drew drives Rory nuts?  There’s something about Drew that rubs Rory the wrong way or maybe it’s because there is no rubbing going on?  It’s so complicated.

Hold onto your hats the Bad Boy Billionaires are back.  The Actor Learning to Love offers no apologies for this raw, raunchy, and funny romance between such rude opposites as Rory and Drew.  And Dane brings a nice normalcy to the plotline which ties everything together.  The Actor Learning to Love is a unique, offbeat love story that works.  One minute steamy and the next funny.  You never know what will happen next with these two!
