Miller Fenwick is delighted that his best friend Alexx has found love with gorgeous werewolf Raoul. Now that the two are engaged, Miller is looking for his own man and finds no one. He fears he may never be the groom but always the groomsman or is that bridesmaid?

Holt Wynne saw Miller and knew immediately he is for him. While he is very influential as head of Helios, the largest vampire organization in the country, Holt cannot rely on that to win his man. Unable to wait, Holt meets Miller at Charisma and goes home with him. Letting his emotions get the better of him, Holt has created a situation that may cause a few problems. Miller will not be happy to learn he is virtually married to Holt, a man who hates werewolves. Miller’s best friend is engaged to a werewolf. Sparks are going to fly both in an out of the bedroom.

Finding the man of your dreams does not always mean the road to happiness is without bumps. Miller enjoyed Holt but was not sure about the steps Holt took without his consent. His actions put Miller in danger and Holt will need to work hard if he wants that happily ever after.

The action never stops in When Will I Be Loved. Julie Lynn Hayes certainly makes Holt and Miller earn their happy ending. The plot is multilayered and quite suspenseful, keeping us turning pages to see what will happen next. Friends mean everything in When Will I Be Loved as Holt soon finds out. As an added bonus, it was nice to visit with Raoul and Alexx. Raoul has not changed with his act first attitude. Hot and suspenseful, this is one story that is good to the last drop – just like an excellent cup of coffee.

cover

When the Clock Strikes, it is time for action and Collin makes his move.

Collin is a Neko, a feline/human hybrid. He has spent his whole life on Aloria Island and wants to see more. But the only way he can see the human world is as the pet of a demon. He has been in love with Prince Adrian for years but Adrian does not even seem to notice him. So when Adrian’s cousin, Porter, asks Collin if he wants to be his pet for the Annual Reaping of Souls Ball, Collin quickly accepts. Little does Collin know but Adrian has wanted Collin for some now but knows such a relationship is banned. A rebel army threatens Adrian and the ruling council and Collin knows he may be forced to choose sides. No matter what, Adrian is lost to him.

In the pages of Ana Raine’s Clock Strikes, each of the main players had an ulterior motive. None were doing exactly what they wanted, but were hoping the current action would help them get closer to their long term goal. The world that Ana Raine built for this series is intriguing and will keep readers captivated for some time. Looking for something different? Something with an exciting new world? Try Clock Strikes by Ana Raine and what result the heroe’s actions yield.

Review: When Will I See You Again by Julie Lynn Hayes

cover

Alexx finds himself entranced and wonders When Will I See You Again.

If werewolves had royalty, Raoul Marchand would be the Crown Prince. He is in charge of Charisma, a nightclub where supernaturals are known to frequent and tourists go to see what they can. Raoul is known for taking lovers and throwing them away. He does not plan on keeping any of them around as a result of a tragic loss twenty years ago.

Alexx Jameson wants nothing more than to become a reporter for the Crescent Bay Chronicle. When given the opportunity to write an article on the Marchands, Alexx jumps at the chance. His friend, Miller Fenwick, Chronicle receptionist, knows just the way to start. He suggests a visit to Charisma. Alexx is not so sure. He is after all only twenty. Miller has the perfect solution.

Their first meeting does not go quite as planned but when Alexx and Raoul continue to be thrown together, the two find themselves attracted to each other. But Raoul has to deal with his past while Alexx still wants to become a reporter. Can the two find common ground before it is too late?

Raoul was not all that likeable in the beginning. He seemed to be one that took what he wanted and then discarded it when done, just like an old toy. Alexx was attracted to him and hoped there was more to him. It was amazing how well they complimented each other. Raoul became so much more when he was with Alexx. The plot was intriguing and kept us guessing. Although there were a few hints throughout, we had to wait until the end to be sure. Exciting and suspenseful, When Will I see You Again by Julie Lynn Hayes is one book that will stay with you long after your reader is off.

Review: His To Claim by Opal Carew

When Melanie walked away from her boss Rafe Ranier it was because of the feelings she had kept under wraps for two years. Melanie had always carried a torch for Rafe, but he seemed oblivious and at one point more interested in her best friend. However now that she has moved on with her life in a new job and exploring what her next step will be he reenters her life.

Rafe has been dabbling with his band Savage Kiss. He quickly begins to realize that Melanie might like him more than a friend and acts on it. However Rafe is more interested in living in the moment and not looking for a relationship. When he realizes that with no strings that leaves Melanie to explore other options he reigns her in. Now that she is touring with the band though everything changes and Rafe has to decide if he wants to hold on or let go.

Highly entertaining. This is a quickly paced erotic romance. Melanie could easily just go with the flow with Rafe but she sticks by her decisions on what she wants. I liked Rafe he had a lot of depth to him and found his own inner battles fascinating. Another great book from Opal Carew.

Review: Day and Knight by Dirk Greyson

cover

Two men partnered can only be a problem if they are as different as Day and Knight.

After leaving NSA, Dayton “Day” Ingram works now for Scorpion as a technical analyst. He really wants to work in the field and his opportunity comes when he saves a young man from his attackers. The only problem is his new partner – Knighton. Knight is a real mystery. Using his considerable talents, Day can find nothing on Knight – not even his first name.

After losing his family, Knight buried himself in research at the job and the bottle at home. He is given this one last chance to continue as a field agent for Scorpion. The two men are to stop a terrorist threat that has originated in the Yucatan. To get in they are to pose as a couple on a gay cruise. Not exactly a cruise made in heaven. Both men are deeply closeted and Day takes exception to Knight’s need for control and his snide comments.

Drinking too much leads to a night together in bed. Trust becomes an issue and they must over come that and stop the threat which could have drastic consequences. They know the attack is on the US’s technological infrastructure and that could be devastating. With the deadline fast approaching, they must trust and rely on each other if they are to survive, succeed in their mission and maybe have a chance at life – together.

Knight never got over the loss of his family. Now he is on his last chance and a rookie partner is not what he wants. Day does not appreciate all the rookie comments he gets from Knight but he is determined to succeed with or without Knight‘s help. The lines are drawn and each want to cross it, but don‘t know how or when. The plot is fantastic and a little scary when you consider the possibilities. It was excellently done!

Dirk Greyson has penned a wonderful tale of two men finding each other at a inopportune time, or is it? They are also each unique in how they handle the job. In fact, they are as different as Day and Knight. An amazing plot and great heroes, conflict and resolution all make Day and Knight by Dirk Greyson a book to enjoy and savor. Enjoy suspense and perilous situations with your MM stories? Then Day and Knight is perfect for you.

cover

Alyn and Jarvez are back! Becky Black leads down a new road in Red Dragon 3: Tempting the Stars.

The newly married Captain Alyn Evans and Jarvez Kashari return to Earth on the Red Dragon. Jarvez knows he will have to face his grandfather’s wrath after promising to leave the Red Dragon. His confrontation never happens when, upon arrival at his family home, he learns that his grandfather died. Dealing with the shock and grief of his loss, Jarvez is dealt another blow when he learns of a long kept and terrible secret, a secret that changes how Jarvez views his family and the past.

Working on dealing with both the incident and his own guilty part in it, Jarvez longs for domination and punishment in the bedroom, something Alyn is not sure he can satisfy. The Red Dragon embarks on a new mission and Jarvez has one of his own. He wants to buy a ship and become independent traders. Alyn is more than willing to go along with the plan, but first they must find the money.

Then a consignment of diamonds is stolen and the Red Dragon is not allowed to proceed until they are found. This could jeopardize all of Alyn’s and Jarvez’s plans if they are delayed too long.

It is wonderful to visit with Alyn and Jarvez once again. Jarvez anticipated problems with his grandfather but finds him gone and a secret revealed that crushes him. Alyn is there for support but Jarvez needs more and Alyn is not sure he can provide that. The plot is multi-layered with each one unfolding masterfully. The stolen diamonds could be considered as the first domino. If it falls, the others do as well. Can Alyn and Jarvez keep that one domino from falling?  Suspense, family drama, danger and love combine to make Red Dragon 3: Tempting the Stars by Becky Black an irresistible temptation.
