Blacksmith Abner Johnson is one of the small number of humans who are well aware of the paranormal world.  The recent death of his sister and the unwanted attentions of a vampire have made Abner reassess his life.  A fresh start at a new coven out West is the answer.


Rescued after years and years of abuse by the pack Alpha and his cronies, the dingo shifter Pascal has ironically settled in at a vampire coven.  Of course, it helps that his two brothers are mated to coven members.  If only his brothers would understand and accept that Pascal has certain sexual needs for submission.


The very last thing Abner is looking for is a relationship with a shifter.  What he doesn’t understand and Pascal is too shy to articulate is the incredible force behind true mates.  Fighting fate is pointless.  Try telling that to the stubborn human.


A truly difficult relationship unfolds in The Strike of Hot Iron.  Hard headed Abner is the epitome of trouble for a sweet natured submissive shifter.  Miscommunication is the problem, as usual.  Between Abner’s refusal to unbend and Pascal’s inability to tell his mate the truth major headaches insure.  The cold human and tenderhearted shifter doesn’t seem like a good pairing, but The Strike of Hot Iron is able to give readers a ‘feel good’ worthwhile ending.

Giles Corsair joined a secretive group known as the Priests to rid the world of demons.  It was also a way to get out from under his controlling mother’s rigid rule.  Believing he’s come across a nest of demons Giles becomes the one captured.  He refuses to accept that he’s found an innocent coven of vampires rather than the evil demons he’s expected to destroy.


It is coming upon the thousandth year of life for Thanach.  On this very special anniversary the demon will be rewarded for his service to the Horseman of War.  Thanach will be given an amina to bond with, someone meant for him alone.


The Horseman of War sends Thanach on a mission to Earth, to the home of Master Dante’s coven.   Following an unexpected, intoxicating scent the demon is led to the basement cell of the Priest Giles.  The duty of a Priest is to destroy demons.  Nobody ever told Giles about vampires or the true purpose of demons, let alone what fate has in store for the human…


The Priest’s Perspective is completely upended in the latest drama from the popular series.  Snatching at wisps of hope and lots of patience Thanach has his hands full with the stubborn human in this unlikely romance.  As usual, with this series the characters are what keep the plotlines fresh and entertaining.  Enjoy The Priest’s Perspective for all the right reasons, the story completely satisfies.

Each demon assigned to a Horseman is required to serve his Master for a thousand years before being rewarded with an amina, a mate.  In service to the Horseman of War, the demon Belial was kept from finding his amina the first time by the demons of another Horseman.  At two thousand years of age Belial is long past due his chance at happiness on the mortal plane with his amina.


The Horseman of War gives Belial one last assignment before his search begins.  He is to fan the flames of war between a group of humans and a coven of vampires.  Intent on his job, Belial figures out that his amina is nearby and involved in some way in the war to come.


As a demon Belial isn’t supposed to take sides, especially in any war he starts, but all bets are off when he discovers his amina belongs to the coven.  Gabriel Metrinan was tortured and starved to the point of madness by the very same humans Belial is assigned to.  Healing Gabriel comes first.  Destroying the humans a close second.


Angst and love battle for dominance in the eleventh offering from the A Loving Nip series titled Vampires, Demons, and Priests, oh my!  After two millennium Belial certainly deserves happiness.  Gabriel is a sorrowful, dangerous mess, pure and simple.  Their love story is a positive, delightful tale.  The twist Belial deals to the humans a guilty pleasure.  This title alone tells of what fun the reader finds in Vampires, Demons, Priests, oh my!
