After yet another interminable day at the office Jared is more than ready to step onto the elevator until his arch nemesis joins him.  It’s fairly simple to keep your mouth shut during office hours when everyone’s there, but when the power goes out and you’re stuck between floors… All bets are off.  Especially when Grant makes an outrageous proposition and Jared is intrigued.


Compromising Situations allow tensions to rise high in this office based D/s drama.  The showdown between the characters explodes with righteous indignation and sexual heat.  Jared and Grant take turns blowing off steam in most excellent ways.  Their give and take relationship is fascinating to witness.  Enjoy the sizzle in Compromising Situations.

Wolf shifter gamma Silas Donovan takes his responsibilities towards the pack’s security very seriously.  He’d rather not leave their safety in another’s hands, but when the Alpha asks for a personal favor Donovan reluctantly agrees to a bodyguard job.


The world’s top model is none other than Asian golden cat shifter Aran Aquino.  Plans have been made for a fantastic photo layout centered on Aran on Fregate Island in the Seychelles where the Banyon Hill Estate is the only sign of modern life on the entire island.


After long flights and hours of boat travel everyone finally arrives on the island.  Donovan is there to protect the model from possible threats though the only people there are Aran’s own entourage and the boat crew.


When Donovan is introduced to Aran the wolf shifter is pleasantly surprised to find his charge isn’t the stuck up brat he expects to meet.  He also realizes that he’s found his mate in the golden cat shifter.  Protecting Aran is going to prove easier than figuring out how the two will blend their lives.  Canine and feline mates should be interesting to say the least.


The Pariah Pack returns with another new tale.  Lone Wolf and His Cool Cat brings unlikely mates Donovan and Aran together in this sexy suspense story.  Watch the sexual sparks fly between the wolf and his cat.  All in all the storyline follows along as expected with tense moments from an unexpected foe at the climax.  Lone Wolf and His Cool Cat has a tropical locale, hot loving, and a pair of agreeable characters.

Alpha Max Wolfe is in charge of an unusual pack.  His people are cast offs, the misfits that other packs threw out or those who survived the decimation of their own pack. They have bonded together with the wolf shifter as their leader.  Now passing the century mark Wolfe is a successful bounty hunter who also dabbles in racing for extra income.


After a recent race Wolfe caught a scent in the crowd that had to have been his mate.  When he tried to chase the scent down he caught sight of a young man but somehow lost him.  Once he picked up the scent again Wolfe tracked down Peter Bennett, a rabbit shifter who saves abused animals when he’s not working at an animal shelter.


Of all the cosmic twists of fate – pairing a predator to prey as mates.  Wolfe’s inner animal is driving him to consummate their relationship, to bond forever.  As for Peter he’s skeptical that they can work things out.  He’s not sure they can ever find common ground and asks Wolfe to wait, to let them get to know each other before making the ultimate commitment.  After all they only get one mate in a lifetime. Patience, Wolfe, patience.  Surely it’s not too much to ask.


Wolfe and His Bunny charmingly questions what fate was thinking matching a wolf and a rabbit.  Time after time readers see Wolfe stumble during his attempts to court Peter who proves to have a great deal of patience.  Each makes mistakes, sometimes big mistakes.  What sets Wolfe and His Bunny above other books is that Wolfe and Peter are willing to keep trying.  Neither throws in the towel on love.  Through false starts and speed bumps Wolfe and His Bunny triumphs.

Actors Andrew ‘Mac’ McGuire and Dylan Keane began their careers on the night time soap show “The Lighthouse”.  Their friendship developed alongside their roles as teenagers and grew as their characters evolved on the popular soap.


In a meeting with the producer and the head writer Mac and Dylan are told of a major change in the show’s plot.  Their characters are going to develop a gay relationship as a way to pump up the ratings.  Speechless at first their initial rehearsal is awkward to say the least.


One evening when Mac agrees to practice an intense scene away from the set Dylan admits to being bisexual.  He also says that he’s had a thing for Mac though he never expected it to go anywhere.  The lines are beginning to blur between reality and the make believe world of television for two best friends.


Relationship issues are lightly explored in the drama Sweet and Sour Soap.  Mac and Dylan are pleasant characters whose lives and love take on a bizarre parallel with their soap characters.  Sometimes it’s difficult to decide which romance is realistically working since their motivation is sometimes questionable.  In the end Sweet and Sour Soap manages to succeed.  Mac and Dylan make the right choices for their future together.

Sweat, grit, and long days.  Hardworking Benson Stone made his dreams come true with the success of Silverstone Ranch.  Yet, for some reason Benson never feels satisfied, never feels happy with his accomplishments.   He hungers for what others receive, cheated out of his due.


An evening at Club Maverick is supposed to simply scratch an itch and nothing more.  That’s the plan until Benson runs into Zavist, a God of Chaos and unknowingly sets himself up for a lesson he won’t ever forget.  A lesson in humility and morality is about to be learned or flunked.  It’s up to Benson whether he takes everything to heart.  Pass or fail, Benson won’t likely forget what happens next.


Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes takes on poetic meaning for one mortal in the fifth Gods of Chaos story.  Speakin’ of the Devil lightly explores the ‘glass half empty’ morality.  Human vices, decency, and the character of a person comes to the fore as Benson has an eye opening experience.  A pleasurable romance weaves through Benson’s journey which adds the right amount of tenderness to this lesson in ethics.  Enjoy Speakin’ of the Devil as one man’s heart and soul is forever changed.
