Re-release: Twin Flames (Sumeria's Sons, 1) #gaypnr #gayuf #shifters #mpreg #friendstolovers #matebetrayal

I'm a bit behind on my announcements for the re-release of Twin Flames. Yikes! The series has been rebranded and the given new covers, which I LOVE. Natasha Snow did an excellent job of corralling my ideas into sometime more cohesive and she was fantastic to work with. 

As of last Friday, the re-release of Sumeria's Sons has started. Every Friday to October 30th each book in the series will release. For the first time ever, the series will be available on Kindle Unlimited. I'm working getting the paperbacks uploaded so those will be coming soon.

🔥 Gay Romance 🔥 Best Friends to Lovers 🔥 Mate Betrayal 🔥 Paranormal / Urban Fantasy 🔥 Lycan Shifters 🔥 Sumerian Gods/Goddesses

Buy Link: Amazon (and KU)

Betrayed and broken, Tristan never thought he would find love again.

A Lycan descendant of Gilgamesh and Enkidu, Tristan is not as extraordinary as his ancestors. He is an average warrior, unremarkable throughout. But this fact does not trouble him because he has found his Twin Flame, the one person destined to be his, who will love him unconditionally, life after life.

Then his Flame betrays him, leaving him shattered and dying. Brokenhearted, Tristan dissolves the sacred bond and leaves. His best friend, Ushna, accompanies him, vowing to guard and protect him, and Tristan slowly comes to realize that love does not require a sacred bond.

But if he hopes to keep the love he chooses, he will have to face the magical force that swirls deep inside him. Together, Tristan and Ushna will confront ancient secrets, lies, mythical creatures, and the return of absent gods…

Author's Note: Sumeria's Sons is a paranormal urban fantasy that slowly unveils the lost myths and legends of the modern day Lycan people. This series does eventually feature an mpreg relationship, but it is not the sole focus of the plot. This book was previously released by another publisher. Only light editing changes have been made to this book.

Thank you for stopping by and reading!

Title: How to Lure a Hunter

Series(VRC: Vampire Related Crimes Book 3)

Author(s): Alice Winters

Length: 377 pages

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Vampires / Grumpy vs Sunny trope / Gay

Notes: Confession. I read the first book in the series, skipped the second book because my anxiety over the big bad was OTTP. So I jumped to this one because I loved grumpy Alexei. Great book with some funny moments.


When Marcus Church brings his brother Claude in to help solve an unusual murder, I’m positive he did it just to disrupt my monotonous life. None of my coworkers in the Vampire Related Crimes unit seem to understand that I want to keep a wall between me and everyone else—especially Claude, who does everything he can to break through it with an annoying smile. After more vampires begin to die, Claude pinpoints the actions of the killers to a group of vampire hunters, leaving us in a race to stop them. When I discover that I have a target on my back, I’m surprised that Claude insists on staying by my side, even when things go from bad to worse. I’m determined to keep him out—I’ve lost enough people in my life—but I can’t stop feeling something every time he breaks through.

When I reunited with my brother, I never imagined it’d throw me right into Alexei Karsynov’s path. He’s short-tempered, stubborn, and dangerously adorable whenever he smiles—he just doesn’t realize it yet. When Marcus asks me to help with a case, it gives me the excuse I need to get closer to Alexei, but what I discover threatens to change everything. Suddenly, I find myself wanting to do anything to protect Alexei and to see him smile, despite his efforts to keep his distance from others. I’m determined to show him that he can’t live in the past when his future is so much brighter.

How to Lure a Hunter is a 107k word book that contains: Clothes so bright they could cause retina damage, a ridiculous amount of gifts showered on a reluctant recipient, a cranky Russian with a soft spot he tries to hide, a library full of books that need to be treated with the proper respect, some possibly unhealthy sibling teasing, and a sunshiny 300-year-old vampire with an unexpected protective streak.

Title: Blood Oath

Series: Legacy of the Assassins, 1

Author(s): AT Brennan

Length: 279 pages

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Urban Fantasy / Vampire / Shifter / Mage / Poly /

What's on the Reading Radar? #TBR #WishList

 What am I doing? Sanding, staining, and painting. I'm sooooo tired of not having an office with a real desk. Props to all the writers who enjoy writing anywhere. Been there, done that, have the T-shirt for the last several months. I'm done. I want my own space again. Reading has been weird. I cannot settling on one story for long and have been jumping from book to book. It's kinda frustrating because I'm leaving a ton of unfinished books in my wake.


Series: DEADKREST, 1

Author: Quirah Casey


Genre: Romance / Fantasy / Royalty / Revenge / RH

Notes: The release date for this isn't until October 6th.

Blurb: They thought they broke me, but in the end they only freed me… and now I’m going to kill them all.

My crown has always been nothing more than a pretty shackle and I was a willing prisoner, until my brother killed the love of my life. Now that the illusion of happiness has been shattered, the storm inside of me has been awoken and I’m going to get my revenge.

Being banished to Ezowel was the first step in my plan and now I have to find the DEADKREST. The exiled group of royals are the only people who ever got close to ending the way of the six kingdoms, and I know they’re my only chance at toppling my brother off of his throne and taking it as mine.

But the DEADKREST prove to be nothing that I expect.

I don’t expect the men to be cold, blood-thirtsy monsters instead of the rumored good-hearted royals I believed them to be.

I don’t expect them to hate each other.

I don’t expect them to ignite feelings that I haven’t felt since my husband was killed.

And I certainly don’t expect for them to fight over me.

How will we ever get us off this godforsaken island so I can get my revenge if they can’t stop trying to kill each other?


This is the first book in a fantasy reverse harem trilogy.

Title: Duster: Grimdark Novel of Dead Gods, Old Heroes, and a World at War


Author: Adam Stemple

Length: 360 pages

Genre: Dark Fantasy / Hero Quest?


Blurb: Invaders from the north. A missing son. A conspiracy that spans centuries. And the man at the center of it all has only a murderous pimp and a treacherous half-breed to help him.

The Dusters, a race of cat people from the north, have invaded and now former soldier Mika must make a grim choice: take up the sword again or watch everything he loves burn.

With his old friend from the military, Gair, and a mysterious, half-breed Duster, Mika makes his way from his Northern border home to the southern capital, across the frozen wastes of the Duster homelands, and deep underground where the legendary Gallochs dwell, desperate to unravel the mystery of the invasion and how it's connected to his origin. Hunted by his own kind and unable to trust his companions, he finds that to save his family, he may have to defeat not only the Duster army but the very Gods themselves.

Penned by award-winning author, Adam Stemple, Duster is an epic, page-turning fantasy that is dark, funny, and violent by turns and keeps the reader on edge till the very last sword stroke.

Title: Fathers' Honor


Author: MCA Hogarth

Length: 252 pages

Genre: Romance / Sci-Fi / Poly / 

Notes: I have not read any of the books from the Dreamhealers series, though one of them (like #4) is on by Wish List. But this says that it is a standalone.


When his favorite student invites him to immigrate to the world of the fabled Eldritch, Armin Palland brings his wife and mother-in-law and all the unresolved issues he's been avoiding. That he arrives to a planet without a university to employ him leaves him stranded with nothing to do but what he does best: turn his psychology degree and analytical powers on the plight of the natives... and one native in particular.

But it was never his intention to get involved with an Eldritch father, much less an Eldritch father AND a middle-aged intransigent Glaseah, neither of whom will let him crawl back into his comfortable shell. There's a road between Armin and his life-altering epiphany, and it's going to take him straight through a hospital ward, several weeks of language lessons, and his first attempt at... wargaming?

And they say old dogs can't learn new tricks....

Familiar friends from the Dreamhealers series take center stage for this standalone Peltedverse novel, set during the Fallowtide period after the end of the Chatcaavan War.

Title: For Honor

Series: (Tales of Akkaria Book 1)

Author: Simon Strange


Genre: Romance / Fantasy / Gay

Notes: Straight off, this cover made me think parody or satire, but the the blurb sounds like it might be on the dark side. I have not read Simon Strange before so I cannot guess at style or how dark. This doesn't release until Decemeber 1st

Blurb: An Epic Fantasy Romance from Simon Strange

This is the story of Orin and Mardjuuk; a human academic who only wanted to find his brother, and an orikhan chieftan's son who only wanted to restore his honor and reclaim the land of his ancestors.

This is a story of cruelty, of danger, of magic, and of love that can stop a war and save two empires.

Title: Grave Mistakes

Series: (Hellgate Guardians Book 1)

Authors: Ivy Asher, Raven Kennedy

Length: 312 pages

Genre: Romance / Urban Fantasy / Demon Gate Protector / RH

Notes: This was recommended to me but I cannot remember why (I forgot to make a note). But I'm game and it sounds fun. :)

Blurb: It’s never a good combo to be broke and desperate. You do stupid things. Like accidentally sign your soul over to Hell.

When I interviewed for a new security job, I didn’t bat an eye that it was for a literal graveyard shift...headstones and all. I mean, at the hourly rate they were offering, who cares? I got this.

Turns out, I’m not guarding a graveyard like I thought. It seems I’ve just walked my broke ass into protecting a Gate to Hell. Yeah…I don’t got this.

Now I’m stuck in a terrifying new reality: a group of hot demons who act like I can solve all their problems, and a battle between good, evil, and balance.

This will seriously teach me to read the fine print on Help Wanted ads. Good thing this job comes with a scythe. Maybe I can use it to stop them from dragging my ass into Hell.

Title: Love Never Dies


Author: Pelaam

Length: 220 pages

Genre: Romance / Steampunk / Fantasy / Gay


Blurb: Brother and sister team Midnight and Aurora Pendragon have a successful airship business taking clients on trips to be photographed with their pet pterodactyl. The last thing they expect is to have one such trip hijacked by the dashing adventurer Voltaire Crevin and his right-hand man Trevilian Hawke.

While his sister and Voltaire repeatedly lock horns, Midnight finds himself increasingly drawn to Trevilian. Finally, Voltaire explains they are trying to prevent a weapon of mass destruction from falling into the hands of a ruthless, secret organization, the S.O.R.

With Midnight's help, they take the airship down into an extinct volcano to find that not only does Atlantis still exist, but the weapon is in the hands of the few remaining Atlanteans. But if Voltaire had believed the S.O.R. were ruthless, it's nothing compared to that of the Atlanteans who seek to return to the surface and rule the world using their ultimate weapon: The Leviathan.

Midnight's feelings for Trevilian deepen as they seek a way to stop the Atlanteans and escape from Atlantis. Danger comes in many ways and takes many forms, each more deadly than the last. Can Midnight and Trevilian survive long enough to know whether love never dies?

What is on the Reading Radar? #TBR #WishList #read

 What am I up to? Busy bee over here. The week buzzed by and before I knew it, yesterday was Friday. LOL!

Title: Acsquidentally in Love

Series: (Sucker For Love Mysteries Book 1)

Author: KL Hiers

Length: 192 pages

Genre: Romance / Urban Fantasy? / Paranormal / Deities / Tricksters / Mystery /  Gay


Blurb: Nothing brings two men—or one man and an ancient god—together like revenge.

Private investigator Sloane sacrificed his career in law enforcement in pursuit of his parents’ murderer. Like them, he is a follower of long-forgotten gods, practicing their magic and offering them his prayers… not that he’s ever gotten a response.

Until now.

Azaethoth the Lesser might be the patron of thieves and tricksters, but he takes care of his followers. He’s come to earth to avenge the killing of one of his favorites, and maybe charm the pants off the cute detective Fate has placed in his path. If he has his way, they’ll do much more than bring a killer to justice. In fact, he’s sure he’s found the man he’ll spend his immortal life with.

Sloane’s resolve is crumbling under Azaethoth’s surprising sweetness, and the tentacles he sometimes glimpses escaping the god’s mortal form set his imagination alight. But their investigation gets stranger and deadlier with every turn. To survive, they’ll need a little faith… and a lot of mystical firepower.

Title: All In

Series: (Brantley Walker: Off the Books Book 1)

Author: Nicole Edwards

Length: 287

Genre: Romance / Contemporary / Former Military / Action / Suspense / Gay


Blurb: Brantley Walker has dedicated his life to fighting for his country. Having given seventeen years to the US Navy, the last ten as a SEAL, the mission was the only thing he knew, the only thing that mattered. He never even considered what life would look like after the mission was over.

Until he’s forced to.

After spending months recovering from career-ending injuries, Brantley finds himself back in his hometown of Coyote Ridge, Texas. Now a permanent resident once again, with the full support of his family and friends, he sets forth to start over, forced to figure out what to do with the rest of his life, which, as it turns out, is far easier said than done.

Then the unthinkable happens.

When his cousin Travis’s daughter goes missing, Brantley puts himself right back in the action, partnering up with Reese Tavoularis to find the little girl and bring her back home where she belongs.

Along the way, Brantley and Reese end up immersed in another mission. Only this one results in a journey that takes them in a direction neither of them expected to go.

Title: Blood Faith

Series: (Carmine Court Book 1)

Author: Kara Sharpe

Length: 127

Genre: Dark Romance / Paranormal / Vampire / Gay

Notes: The blurb contains content warnings


When I stopped to get pizza on my way home, the last thing I expected was to cross paths with a vampire. Now I’m trapped in his home like a bird caught in a beautiful cage.
He’s got a dark magnetism I can’t ignore. I thought I was free of that world forever, but being with him is dragging me right back in.

I know I shouldn’t want him. I need to be stronger than this, but every time he’s near all I can think about is touching him again…


My world is no place for a creature of the daylight like him. Every time I sink my teeth into his vulnerable neck, I drink away a little more of that light.

Our physical connection is intense, but allowing anything else to develop would be the ruin of us both. So why can’t I get him out of my head? He’s my prisoner. How is it that I feel like I’m the one being held captive to his innocence?

I need to stop this before anyone else ends up dead.

BLOOD FAITH is a stand-alone HEA novella of 30,000 words, the first in the forthcoming Carmine Court series. It contains explicit m/m dark romance scenes including vampire content, kidnapping, captivity, and handcuffs.

Title: Monster Song

Series: (My Beautiful Monsters Book 2)

Author: JB Trepagnier

Length: 202 pages

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Greek Monsters / RH / 

Notes: This is labeled as a dark romance by the author and I think she did that because of the slight gore factor. They are monsters who are forced to fight in an arena to the death. There is no dub-con/noncon or other such forced themes that are usually in 'dark romances'. There is death and fighting, but no torture. The relationships are pretty angst free and almost light hearted.

Blurb: Just when I think things can’t get any crazier…

I found out why I can talk to animals and monsters. I met my father and I wasn’t quite expecting his answers. But he does command several legions of demons and he’s working on getting more to help us overthrow Demeter. We’re going to need all the help we can get because I don’t have enough of Hephaestus’s powder to free every single monster in the pits from being trapped in their monster form by those collars.

My monsters, the ones I’ve gotten to know, can change back to their human form now and they want their revenge on Demeter. They want to save their queen, Persephone. I wasn’t expecting to be brought in on this, but I’m involved now. Even Hephaestus has snuck into the Underworld to help us.

I guess all the unloved Gods and monsters are going to have to go up against a deranged Goddess with Olympus on her side. I’m not a monster or a God. I’m only half demon. But now that my father knows about me, we may have the help of Hell on our side.

I didn’t ask for this, but there’s just something about these monsters that makes me want to help them. It doesn’t hurt that they are all drop dead gorgeous and horrible flirts. I can even overlook that Pavlina and Tryphon like to eat people.

Title: Huntsman

Series: Fox Hollow Zodiac, 1

Author: Morgan Brice

Length: 205

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Gay


Blurb: A grieving wolf. A hunted fox. Fated mates, thrown together by chance, and the looming threat of a fabled Huntsman who might tear them apart forever.

Fox shifter Liam Reynard is running from a killer. He uproots his life to find sanctuary in Fox Hollow, deep in the Adirondack Forest in New York.

When his car breaks down, sexy wolf shifter Russ Lowe comes to the rescue, and one touch makes it clear they’re fated mates. Neither man was looking for love, and both are still mending from past heartbreak. When mysterious fires and disappearances threaten Fox Hollow, Liam fears the killer is hot on his trail. Can he protect the town and his fated mate from the evil hunting him, or will an ex-lover’s betrayal cost Liam everything he loves?

Huntsman is full of sexy shifters, hurt/comfort, second chance love, sincere psychics, hot first responders, found family, and fated mates. Intended for readers 18 years of age or older.

What's on the Reading Radar? #read #TBR #WishList

 This week I went to a group and asked for something specific for a recommendation. The request went something like this: 

"Give me your Alpha Vampire recommendations. I’d rather not have relationship drama. But if he’s growly or grumpy but protective or something like that would be awesome. I’d love a good plot. I’m good with gore but not dubcom. Fantasy, sci-fi, urban fantasy, poly or mpreg all welcome."

I received a lot of great recommendations that I thought I'd share here. :)

Title: A Thousand Lifetimes


Author: Kate Hawthorne

Length: 192

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Vampire / Gay


Blurb: My name is Ezra Clarke, and I’m twenty-three.

If you’re counting in vampire years, I’m actually two-hundred and eight, and if living that long has taught me anything, it’s that nothing lasts forever. And that’s been fine. It’s… whatever. I’ve never wanted anything that long, anyway, which is why I’ve never taken a mate, but that all changed when I met Declan Byrne.

He’s young, handsome, and he doesn’t do what I tell him to. He smells like cinnamon and has eyes that remind me of the daytime sky. Every kiss we share feels like home, and no touch lasts long enough.

I need him to be mine.

And for the briefest moment he is, and life is perfect… and then it isn’t. Rogue vampires threaten to pull us apart, and complicated politics are painful reminders that a world exists beyond our privacy of our bedroom.

But if anyone thinks they can keep me away from Declan, they have another thing coming. My mate and I have a thousand lifetimes to live, and we’re just getting started.

Title: Claiming Marcus

Series: (Lords of Discord Book 1)

Author: Jocelynn Drake

Length: 352

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Vampire / Gay / 


Blurb: Ethan wants revenge.

Vampires slaughtered his family.

When a job opening comes up for suspected vampire Marcus Varik, Ethan is sure fate is finally smiling on him.

Except his new boss is nothing like he expected.

Shy, awkward, incredibly protective, and so perfectly sexy.

Ethan was definitely wrong about Marcus and the Variks, but is it too late to stop the deadly events he has set into motion? Will he lose the love shining in Marcus’s eyes?

Claiming Marcus is the first book in an MM paranormal romance series that has vampires, betrayal, annoying brothers, a two-hundred-year-old virgin, music, heartbreak, hope, sexy times, and a raven named Ozzie.

Title: Cronin's Key 

Series: Cronin's Key Series, Book 1

Author: NR Walker


Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Vampire / Gay /

Notes: I have read all but the last book in this series. It's really good and I really need to get to that last book.

Blurb: NYPD Detective Alec MacAidan has always been good with weird. After all, his life has been a string of the unexplainable. But when an injured man gives him cryptic clues, then turns to dust in front of him, Alec's view on weird is changed forever.

Cronin, a vampire Elder, has spent the last 1,000 years waiting for Alec. He'd been told his fated one would be a man wielding a shield, but he didn't expect him to be human, and he certainly didn't expect that shield to be a police badge.

Both men, strong-willed and stubborn, are still learning how to cope with the push and pull of being fated, when fate throws them another curveball.

Rumors have spread quickly of turmoil in Egypt. Covens are fleeing with news of a vampire who has a talent like no other, hell-bent on unleashing the wrath of Death.

Alec and Cronin are thrown into a world of weird Alec cannot imagine. What he learned in school of ancient pharaohs and Egyptian gods was far from the truth. Instead, he finds out firsthand that history isn't always what it seems.

Title: Handsome Death


Author: Sara Dobie Bauer

Length: 257

Genre: Dark Romance / Paranormal / Vampires / Gay

Notes: At the bottom of the blurb is a content warning. 

Blurb: I'm not hunting him; I'm protecting him.

At least, that's what I tell myself.
In New York City, a beautiful creature like Tristan Clement should not be walking the streets alone, and I'm the perfect vampire to watch his back.
But what if keeping him safe isn't enough anymore? What if I want to touch? And taste?
I need him. But I've never needed anyone.

In a world where paranormal creatures live amongst us and must follow certain laws, living life as a dangerous loner works for vampire Ethan. Inhabiting his gleaming apartment, wearing his designer suits, jetting around the world as a fanged killer-for-hire, Ethan does it all alone.

That is, until he literally runs into Tristan. Tristan, who is clearly trouble wrapped in skinny jeans and an oversized sweater. Tristan, with his shock of angelic blond curls. Tristan, who plays piano more beautifully than the old masters-- and Ethan would know; he saw Beethoven.

Tristan is gorgeous, a little sassy, and irresistible. Also, Ethan is horrified to note, Tristan has no idea how incredibly tempting he is to things that go bump in the night.

Overcome by the urge to keep Tristan safe, Ethan begins to... well, stalk is such a strong word. What starts as an obsession quickly becomes something more, something that Ethan needs. And to his surprise, Tristan seems to need him, too...

This darkly romantic tale delivers steamy passion and a happily ever after. Be advised that Handsome Death includes explicit m/m content, stalking, mentions of past abuse, and graphic violence. 

Title: His Consort 

Series: (House of Maedoc Book 1)

Author: Mary Calmes

Length: 286

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Vampire / Gay / 

Notes: I have read this one and really enjoyed it. When I was looking at this, I was reminded that the 2nd book has released.

Blurb: A new life in New Orleans is all Jason Thorpe had hoped: his quaint little store attracts a devoted staff and his warm, loving heart grants him a loyal circle of friends. He's perfectly content, having left behind the chill of a confusing and danger-filled night in Washington, until he discovers something unbelievable lurking in the steamy darkness of the shadowy streets of the Vieux Carré, something that turns out to be terrifying... and utterly mesmerizing.
The prince of the vampyrs, Varic Maedoc, is visiting New Orleans when he finds out the man who once helped his counselor is there in the Quarter. He thinks to simply meet and thank Jason—until he lays eyes on him. Varic’s devoted himself to protect the honor of his race, and he's never wanted a mate before... but he immediately knows he must have this man, and no one else will do.

Varic may want to bring Jason safely into his world, but someone who doesn’t like the human's soothing influence on vampyrs has deadly plans that would disrupt Varic's dreams. Now, unable to tell friend from foe, Jason finds himself wondering how to hold on to the prince’s heart when he’s fighting for his life.

Title: How to Vex a Vampire 

Series: (VRC: Vampire Related Crimes Book 1)

Author: Alice Winters

Length: 342

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Vampires / Gay / Paranormal Police Force / Humor / 

Notes: I have already read this one and enjoyed it. I need to read the other two in the series. 

Blurb: Finn

Getting into the vampire-only detective unit was the easy part; what’s going to be more difficult is dealing with my new partner, an ancient vampire who keeps threatening to eat me. The unit has never had a human in it, and Marcus—or as I like to call him, Fangy McFangface—would really prefer to keep it that way. He’s grumpy, short-tempered, and broody, but I have a way with words and I know he’s starting to like me, even if he swears he’s not. But what he doesn’t know is that I didn’t join the unit because I was tired of being a homicide detective, I joined because there is someone after me. They’ve already taken enough from me and I’m afraid they’re going to take all of me if I don’t find someone to help. That’s all Marcus was supposed to be, but now, he’s so much more and I can’t imagine my life without him.


The moment the pesky human walked through that door, I knew I had to get rid of him. He’s charming and almost everyone else instantly loves him, but he doesn’t understand how risky it is being part of this unit as a human. But as I get to know the stubborn man, I learn that perhaps he’s not as naive as I once thought. And maybe he’s what I needed to realize there is more to life than just work and my dog. A group arises who is threatening to disrupt the alliance between the humans and the vampires, but Finn is the one who shows me how strong that alliance can be and reminds me why it’s worth protecting. When threats hit closer to home, I realize I would do anything for Finn because he’s brought so much joy to my life—and because he’s mine.

This 105k word book contains: A creative use for undergarments, unintentional splits, a wolfhound who just wants to be a part of things, a vertically challenged human who still manages to wrap every vampire he meets around his little finger, the best date ever, possessiveness, really awkward dancing, some workplace revenge, and just a bite or two. Or three.

While the plot of the first book is tied up and completed, there's a minor cliffhanger that will be tied up in the second book.

Notes: I picked up the audiobook for this. It's read by John Solo.

Blurb: Other parents give their children toys and party games for their birthday. My dad gave me and my siblings wooden stakes and flash grenades. To protect us from vampires.

From the moment he adopted us, he warned us about the dangers that lurk in the dark. Obviously, I thought he was crazy. Vampires aren’t real, and I was already enduring enough panic attacks without buying into Dad’s insane ideas.

But then I met Talon.

Talon has fascinating scars and a mouth I want to kiss and a body I want to feel--and fangs.

Vampire fangs.

Suddenly, the weapons Dad gave me start looking real useful.

Only I don't want to fight Talon. I want to feel his teeth on my neck. I can't explain it. He makes my knees goes weak. I know it's wrong, but it feels right.

It feels like destiny.

When Talon bites me, I forget everything, even that he is a monster. Even that I shouldn't be falling for him.

Even that his coven wants me dead.

Accompanying his older brother to the Tower is the handsome young fire mage once wounded by Constantine's arrogance, and their encounter reignites an attraction that burns within both Constantine and Isaac.

Isaac finds himself saddled with a painful insight into the evil cutting a swath through the supernatural population of Boston. While his brother, Angel, takes over the hunt to find and stop the threat to the city, Isaac struggles to find a balance between helping his brother and finding his own purpose and place in the world, free from his brother's shadow.

Blurb: An Enemies to Lovers

Shifter, Vampire True Mates story.

Justice Volkov is the youngest Alpha Zenith to ever lead the wolf shifters. Following in his father’s large paw prints was a responsibility he met head on. Now at age thirty-three, he is alpha of the alphas. As a direct descendant of the original Siberian pack, his wolf is bigger and stronger than Justice, himself is sometimes able to control.

His wolf howled long and hard but Justice kept it inside. It felt like a bass drum beating against his rib cage. The harsh breaths, angry snarls and the determined pacing inside him was overtaking him.

Justice takes his role of leadership and his legacy very seriously. He has little time for romance, not to mention a true mate. His packs are his priority. With a human government trying to regulate them, an uprising of rogue shifters, and a violent team of scientists trying to experiment on them, Justice has his hands way too full.

Chadwick ‘Wick’ Bentley is not enthusiastic when the captain of his escort tells him he has to leave his comfortable London home and go back to the States. As the Vampire King, he has no choice but to get his species back in line before they cause anymore chaos. At over one-hundred years old, Wick is no one to trifle with, but his smooth, charismatic manner makes him quite unique, despite the negative reputation vampires have. Wick has had nothing but time up to this point. He doesn’t feel the need to make issues pressing. Nothing is urgent in his life. Until he meets Justice. His beloved.

“Natural enemies can’t be mates.” Or so Justice thought. He knows his skepticism and rejection is hurting his mate, so while he fights their connection, Wick gets help from a source very close to Justice to help him win his beloved’s heart. Wick is a force all on his own, but when he’s blessed with a special gift from the Mother herself, not even Justice’s powerful wolf can prevent the prophesy from being fulfilled.

This story DOES NOT contain/mention MPREG.
No multiple pairings. No cliffhangers. It ends with a very HFN.

Warning: This book is MM paranormal: If you DO NOT like hot, alpha men shifting into large wolves, or vampires feeding from their mates, this may not be your read.

Title: Stranger: Vampires of Blood and Bones Vol. 5


Author: BA Strerke

Length: 76

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Vampires / Gay

Notes: The person who recommended this author did so as a whole, not pointing out one specific work. This is what came up when I searched.

Blurb: Ira had no idea that this stranger on a plane, would become his destiny.

Ira Shaw was on a plane back to his home Coven in Mt. Pleasant when a human caught his attention. The man had his head down and was seated between two cougar shifters and the entire scene, but Ira’s teeth on edge. Something wasn’t right, and something about this human was calling to him. What Ira didn’t yet know was that this human is his fate chosen forever love, and that match would set the DuCane Coven on a collision course with cougar shifters of the Mt. Pleasant Sheriff’s Department.

Sawyer Dawson has never had it easy. There was always a “but” at the end of every happy sentence. Nothing ever seemed to completely go his way. But now, here he was in cuffs, being brought back to Mt. Pleasant for a murder he didn’t commit. How could everything have gone so wrong? The only solace he felt was in the gaze of the dark stranger on the plane—the power of those eyes. What Sawyer doesn’t know is that those eyes are his forever and belong to the man who will do anything to save him.

Sex, murder, abusive shifter boyfriends, and a bubbling feud between the Vampires of Coven DuCane and the Cougars of the Mt. Pleasant Sheriff’s Department. In the world of Louis DuCane, nothing is ever as it seems.

In fact, so starts a long list of all things unusual for our unlikely hero, Jack, and his newfound and strange family, his werewolf boyfriend, the pack eager to help him, and the ancient clan that wants him dead at all costs. Know this, however, in the end, this misfit group of characters will leave you howling in the crypt aisles!

Title: Stay True to Me


Author: Lisa Oliver

Length: 320

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Vampire / Alpha Shifter / True Mates / Gay

Notes: Lisa Oliver as a whole was recommend with a comment of there are vampire romances in her Clover Leaf series. I know from experience that is a series has to be read in order so I didn't pull from that but found one she labels as a standalone. Specifically: An MM Vampire/Wolf Shifter Standalone Story

Blurb: Prince Venedict Semyonov (Ven to his friends) enjoyed running the town of Rockville. An ancient vampire, he had pretty much seen it all and done it all, if the stories told about him were all true. So when he was informed he was due to meet with an alpha wolf shifter, who was asking for sanctuary in his territory, he didn't think a lot about it. Besides, he always thought it was nice to do things for the less fortunate.

Alpha Conroy Donel (Con to all who knew him) was running on fumes and the very last inch of his patience. Since his twin brother's death six weeks before, he was doing his best to keep the remains of the small pack he'd inherited together - a job made a lot more difficult by his grief, and suspicions he had about the people he was supposedly leading. Moving the pack to Rockville was supposed to give them all time to grieve and carve out new lives for themselves, if only he could get his pack to agree.

The meeting between the two leaders caused fireworks, and not the kind wished for by either man. But as Con delved deeper into the mystery surrounding his brother's death he had to wonder who he could trust anymore. When the danger gets closer, Ven and Con have to work together, if they are ever to have the HEA promised to them by the Fates.

This is a standalone MM Vampire and Wolf Shifter true mates story. It contains some scenes of violence and other scenes intended for adults only. Please store your ebooks responsibly.
