Talon Versuthion doesn’t remember his past, the time before he was adopted by a kind couple who gave him a sister in Josie.  There’s no memory of his birth parents, his two younger brothers or the fact that his family has rare gifts.  They are special, envied by leaders of the Galaxy Peace Allegiance who want all the Versuthion’s dead.

On a business trip with Josie, the siblings encounter danger in space and are forced to land on a shifter planet run by Alpha King Blazell Roughshire.  Talon and Josie are separated during the crash landing, Josie goes missing and Talon comes face to face with the Alpha King, his mate.

Refusing Blaze is not an option.  The Alpha King will mate with Tal, break down his defenses and seduce him into submission.  Tal is beginning to feel overwhelmed.  Blaze mates him, Josie remains missing, and though his adoptive parents told him some aspects of his former life it is Blaze who holds the key to his past.  Life will never be the same for Talon, and Blaze couldn’t be happier.

A brand new series begins with clever word building, electrifying characters, and a plotline out of this world.  Tal and Blaze combust with sexual energy and sensual power in The Alpha King.  Carnal encounters, adventure, sabotage, deceit, and love, The Alpha King has it all.  In truth, the only downside is that the large cast with their titles and special skills needs a score card and proof reading was somewhat overlooked.  Regardless, The Alpha King totally rocks this world off it’s axis with mysteries, drama, and major testosterone.  Book 2 couldn’t come soon enough.

Shyanne is a widow and a mother of twin boys.  Since the death of her husband, Shyanne is now working on moving forward with her life as best she can and that includes taking college courses.  Her latest assignment involves a research project where she has to observe social interaction.  After thinking through several possibilities, Shyanne decides to go to a male strip club and do her paper from what she observes there.  This decision will start Shyanne on a crazy journey that involves shapeshifters, vampires, her unusual family, her job with a very secret agency, and the many impossible things that seem to happen to Shyanne daily.  What could possibly go wrong?

Meat is a shapeshifter who dances in male strip clubs because he enjoys it for right now.  For the most part, Meat enjoys the crazy human women who show up to his performances; yet, when he encounters a small blond who seems to have mishaps at the blink of an eye in two different clubs, he is intrigued.   As Meat learns more about Shyanne, the more intrigued he gets because she is nothing like any of the females Meat has known before.  As it turns out, Shyanne helps Meat with a job he isn’t so open about in her own unique way.

All Shyanne wanted to do was get the research in she needed for her college paper.  Instead, she becomes involved with one of the sexiest men she has met lately and even better, he makes her remember that she is more than just a mom, a student and a glorified gopher at work.  The odds were against Shyanne and Meat from the very beginning, but it seems that all the mishaps they get into only bring them closer together.  Heck, it appears that even her adopted father is willing to give Meat a chance and her boys love him.  If Meat and Shyanne can survive this initial phase of their courtship, they just may find the kind of love that will last a very long time.

A most unusual courtship begins when a mishap challenged blond meets a sexy stripper who can also become an animal at will in Human Interaction.  I have never laughed so hard as I did as I followed Shyanne and Meat through this first part of their hot courtship.  The attraction between them was fast and yet they took the time to learn about each other instead of just jumping into bed, even when the sexy innuendos kept coming.  I couldn’t believe some the situations that Shyanne and Meat found themselves in.  It seemed like any possible form of mayhem found a way to find Shyanne and affect those around her.  I loved Shyanne and her determination to pick up the pieces for her and her children and forge a new future for them.  I also love how Meat took a walk on the zany side and was able to take all that was Shyanne in stride and love her.  I seriously can’t wait until the next chapter in Shyanne and Meat’s journey to love appears on my reader.  Human Interaction is a fun courtship like no other which proves mayhem can be fun foreplay for two unusual lovers.

Six months ago police officer Lucas Ford was brutally attacked by a rogue vampire.  Either luck, fast reflexes, or both saved Luc that dark night though he will carry the vicious scars for the rest of his life.

A heated fight turns into a brawl at club Hot Encounters owned by coven leader Merrick Winters.  Meeting with Merrick’s manager after the fight, Luc gets the wrong impression from Bryce Denahli when the vampire’s fangs come out.  Luc believes he’s being threatened, but in actuality Bryce is simply reacting to the nearness of his mate. 

Understandably Luc wants nothing to do with the vampire, and he is not gay.  Knowing the cards are stacked against him Bryce is determined to claim the cop for his own.  One fights the pull as the other tries to seduce.  If that wasn’t enough a band of rogues is raising the death toll daily.  Not exactly a simple romance by anyone’s reckoning.

Seduction, romance, and love find a place to shine.  Bryce’s Cop features strong characters and an intense plotline where life and death comes into play.  Bryce and Luc’s love story delivers a complicated tale with killer rogues on the loose.  Intelligent dialogue and intense situations add to the storyline.  Bryce’s Cop delivers.

After years in New York, Seth Hall has returned to his hometown to raise his two children and start a bakery. The last thing he wants on his first day on the job is to run into the guy he loved in high school—the same guy who humiliated him and broke his heart. At first he’s angry and defensive, but then he really starts to listen to what Jared has to say. Realizing they’ve both been played, Seth and Jared are determined to make up for lost time, but someone doesn’t want them together…

Always Been You has a nice premise and setup, but I was really disappointed in how everything played out. The huge misunderstandings between Seth and Jared are cleared up almost immediately, leaving them free to fall into near insta-love. Unfortunately, that leaves only external conflict, which is created by one character. The woman starts out manipulative and cruel and morphs into an almost ridiculous figure by the end. I would have liked to see more internal conflict, or conflict regarding the children, as opposed to everything being caused by a few people and a whole lot of misunderstandings.

David Thornton has a lot on his plate, with a full load of classes to teach at the university and a young daughter to take care of. Shane, a neighbor who babysits his daughter, Jessica, is a great help. He doesn’t think of Shane any other way, until his teaching assistant mentions that Shane has a crush on David. Then suddenly Shane is all David can think about…

Academic Pleasures is a sweet, if too simple, tale of a man finding love again in the last place he expects to. David thinks he’s happy enough in his life. He’s frustrated with the classes he’s teaching, and still misses his wife, but he tries to convince himself he has all he needs. Once he starts seeing Shane in a different light, he can’t seem to stop. Unable to just jump into a relationship, he tries to convince himself, and Shane, that Shane is too young for him and better off with someone else.

I liked Academic Pleasures well enough, but little things threw me out of the story. For one, Jessica was said to be three years old, yet she was in kindergarten? Unless the educational system where the story is set is drastically different from the one I’m familiar with, a three-year-old would be in preschool, not kindergarten. A much bigger issue was the too-quick resolution of David and Shane’s conflict. While the story is sweet, in the end it was a bit too light to really stick with me.
