 End Street Vol 2

Cover Design: Meredith Russell


The Case of the Dragon's Dilemma

Dragons, battles, a Siren attack and a deal Sam may come to regret leave Sam and Bob in danger...and result in Mikhail finding a mate.

Bob and Sam take their kind-of-adopted-now vampire daughter Mal to look at new schools. Mikhail is left to babysit the last of the remaining rescued children whilst they are away.

When Sirens appear to steal her away, he is left facing the attack alone until a mysterious hero comes to his aid. Ryujin, or Jin to his friends, is a dragon shifter and his role as Captain of the Dragon Guards puts him in direct conflict with Mikhail.

The minute he sees Mikhail he knows what he wants. Now if he can only get Mikhail to see the same.

The Case of the Sinful Santa

Zephariel, the Angel of Vengeance, Nick Klauson, nephew to Santa, Christmas magic, zombies in the school and a necromancer causing chaos...and at the centre of it all-Mal.

Zephariel is the Angel of Vengeance and is tracking down his cousin Danjal for misuse of brimstone. When he walks into a bar and finds Nick Klauson drowning his sorrows, he is instantly drawn to him. Could this be his fated mate?

When Nick and Zeph join forces to deal with zombies in Mal's school, sparks fly. Add in a demon, a wolf and a necromancer, and Sam and Bob have a hunt on their hands.

"...With stories that are written by more than one author, there are sometimes gaps in the flow of the writing. There are none here. The writing flows smoothly and seamlessly I wouldn't be able to tell you who wrote what. The world describe within the story was easily imagined as where the characters...."

Carra's Review

One of the things I like best about this series is the wide range of paranormals featured.  Where else can you find vampires, werewolves, ghosts, gargoyles, dragons, the Fae, angels, demons, sirens, and oh yes-the elves of Santa's family all in one series?  Heck, even in a single story?  It makes for some highly entertaining reading that makes you laugh along the way.

In The Case of the Dragon's Dilemma, we get to see Mikhail-a half vampire, half siren-get his chance at a mate when Jin comes along.  There's dark things afoot amongst the dragons, and Mikhail, Jin, Sam and Bob head out to figure out what's going on.  There's the usual witty banter between the characters, along with a bit of mystery and action as they work together to go after a necromancer who's trying to cause havoc. 

Yes, there's a bit of insta-love going on with Mikhail and Jin, but for me it's perfectly acceptable in the guise of soul mates (one of my favorites in paranormal stories).  The two of them together are sexy and hot, but the intimate scenes don't take over the story--the mystery is always central in the End Street stories.

The necromancer story arc continues in The Case of the Sinful Santa.  Nick-Santa's nephew-is a bit down, and meets Zephariel while attempting to drown his sorrows at a bar.  The meeting between them sets off a spark, and we get another fated mate pair story set among zombies and the continuing necromancer problem.

For me, Nick and Zeph didn't have quite the connection that Mikhail and Jin did, but they did grow on me, especially when facing the angel court toward the end of the story and the scenes following that.

Both stories are fast-paced and quick reads.  I liked reading them together in the one volume since the two stories had the connecting element of the necromancer, which made it feel more like one big story.  And even though each story gives us a new couple to focus on, we still get Sam and Bob (along with Sam's ever-evolving non-humanness) and their constant love story as well.  

This all makes for some fun stories with mystery, action, drama and of course love.  End Street Volume 2 was a 4.5-star read for me, and I would highly recommend this book and series to M/M paranormal romance fans, especially those who like a lot of different kinds of paranormals all interacting together in the same story.  This book is meant for readers 18+, mostly for the M/M sexual content.  I hope Amber Kell and RJ Scott are planning a lot more stories in the series, I'm really loving this crazy mix of creatures and the maybe-kinda-or-not-so-human Sam!

Author Bios

Amber Kell has made a career out of daydreaming. It has been a lifelong habit she practices diligently as shown by her complete lack of focus on anything not related to her fantasy world building.

When she told her husband what she wanted to do with her life, he told her to go have fun.

During those seconds she isn't writing, she remembers she has children who humor her with games of "what if" and let her drag them to foreign lands to gather inspiration. Her youngest confided in her that he wants to write because he longs for a website and an author name-two things apparently necessary to be a proper writer.

Despite her husband's insistence she doesn't drink enough to be a true literary genius, she continues to spin stories of people falling happily in love and staying that way.

She is thwarted during the day by a traffic jam of cats on the stairway and a puppy who insists on walks, but she bravely perseveres.

RJ Scott is the bestselling gay romance author of over ninety MM romance books. She writes emotional stories of complicated characters, cowboys, millionaire, princes, and the men who get mixed up in their lives. RJ is known for writing books that always end with a happy ever after. She lives just outside London and spends every waking minute she isn't with family either reading or writing. 

RJ also writes MF romance under the name Rozenn Scott.

The last time she had a week's break from writing she didn't like it one little bit, and she has yet to meet a bottle of wine she couldn't defeat.
