A decade spent in the human world and sometimes it’s very dull for half dragon/half sorcerer Lester Bucan.  But it’s still better than the abusive life he suffered growing up back home as a half-breed.

 

It appears the war between the dragons and sorcerers is escalating after his old buddy Mick shows up at the ER where Lester works and insists he come home.  According to the small dragon Lester’s brother, now the dragon leader, wants his little brother home for his safety. Supposedly the sorcerers fear the half-breed’s powers though he’s never shown an ounce of talent or been able to transform.

 

Too many years of abuse at the hands of his parents make Lester extremely leery that anything’s changed since they passed on.  Long ago Lester fell hard for Mick.  With Mick at his side maybe it is time to return, if he can trust him.  After all, trust is earned.

 

Dragon’s Heart nicely balances a sweet, sexy romance with a courageous adventure in the second Dragon’s Soul book.  Once a pariah, Lester returns home to hopefully find acceptance and love. Lester and his mate Mick make Dragon’s Heart a pleasurable treat to indulge in.

Surviving a near fatal accident Knight is finally well enough to return home to his family. Bishop, Rook, and Jason practically fall over each other in their eagerness to take care of their lover.

 

Slowly but surely Knight’s body is healing.  However, as the days drag on the artist is sinking into a deep depression.  His once volatile, passionate personality is disappearing.  Knight’s lovers feel helpless as they watch him continue to withdraw from life.  Their last ditch effort to shake Knight out of his lethargy better work because if it backfires their family will never be the same.

 

Author Sean Michael takes the hottest foursome in print on a hard won journey of commitment and love.  Picking up after Knight’s accident, Helpmate explores the fallout of almost losing a partner as well as the dichotomy of their unique relationship.  Of course the expected steamy encounters are present, but Helpmate primarily deals with a healing relationship.  A careful balance of emotional drama and healthy sensuality, Helpmate covers the board.

It has been a year since Paul Hardy was rescued from a human trafficking ring run by wolf shifters.  Since that time he’s been unable to cope, subject to panic attacks, falling into feelings of misery and shame at a moment’s notice.  After an unexpected run in with two of his abusers Paul moved in with his twin brother Preston and his leopard shifter mate, Nischal, at Grandma Marybeth’s home in the Colorado Mountains.

 

One of the many branches of the leopard shifter family resides in Phoenix.  Justice Chalmers spent a decade in the Marines before returning home to take up his dream job on the police force.  His sister Vivian recently completed her studies to become a therapist.  The siblings are summoned to Colorado so that Justice can visit with the family and Vivian can hopefully help a mate’s brother.

 

Stopping for a quick leg stretch Vivian checks out the local shops while Justice fills up with gas.  For some unknown reason the leopard is consumed with lustful feelings and engages in a bathroom cliché with a stranger. It is an awkward beginning for fated mates to say the least.  Paul can only hope that Justice has the patience to let the human heal in his own time.  And at the same time protect him from the wolf shifters who want him back.

 

Book ten in the Leopard’s Spot series plunges readers into a world of sympathetic characters and non-stop action.  Sincere, sexy leopards and humans come together in love.  The dangers of their world are also explored and battled.  Author Bailey Bradford continues to imagine new and exciting plotlines to woo readers to this enjoyable series.  Justice comes for Paul and there’s no turning back.  Delicious.

Outwardly Duke Hellbur is simply another useless royal living on the fringe, but behind the scenes he manages a spy network that locates and frees Thresls from slavery and pit fighting.

 

Recently however, someone close to Hellbur has framed him, making it look as though he is the one destroying the precious Thresl population.  Matters come to a head when the Duke is almost killed.  On waking his Thresl side scents his mate in his medic, Balaze who has absolutely no interest in bonding with Hellbur.  The stubborn duke won’t take no for an answer and ends up dragging Balaze across the universe to find the real culprit and prove his innocence.

 

Balaze and Hellbur were both previously mated.  This time it will be different.  This time the connection will be more than just a physical bond.  This time love will be what holds them together as they unmask the true villains.

 

Duke Betrayed rings with powerful emotion and suspense.  Tense drama and passion guide Hellbur and Balaze on their journey in the fifth story of the wildly popular Thresl Chronicles.  The primary plotline focuses on the duke and the medic’s unconventional romance while the secondary story centers on the plight of the Thresls.  Duke Betrayed amplifies a wonderful series with characters that rock.

Betrayed by his brother Saint was condemned to centuries of life trapped under the ruins of the old palace.  Unable to free himself he spent his time honing his magical gifts and plotting his revenge.  At last Saint is liberated when King Vohne and King Mate Kreslan literally unearth him from his prison.

 

It is Saint’s claim that he is the true King, but his first priority is finding his reincarnated mate.  To that end he uses his gifts to travel the galaxy, most unaware that an invisible Thresl is onboard their ship.  Saint is relentless in tracking down his mate which leads him to Captain Marsley Jacks, a man bent on rescuing his Thresl brethren.  Mars’ mission takes up his entire existence.  He has no time for the complication of bonding or mates.  Long ago he loved a man but walked away.

 

Too bad as far as Saint is concerned.  He’s waited centuries so he can be patient, to a point.  Saint will have Mars by his side and his kingdom back.  It’s all simply a matter of planning and time.

 

Saint Returns loud and unforgiving.  The sixth book in The Thresl Chronicles series takes up plotline threads dropped along each previous story. Fans are going to love this one and with enough back story offered new readers will be hooked too.  Dominance and passion within Saint Returns circles and weaves throughout the book.  Enjoy every moment as the ancient seduces the captain in the wild courtship in Saint Returns.
