Shifter and Vampire True Mates story.

Alek’s older brother, Justice—the Alpha Zenith—was the first shifter to mate with a vampire in many generations, and it was believed the rare, fated pairing would stop at him. But, it hadn’t. Aleksei ‘Alek’ Volkov was second beta, next in succession to the most powerful shifter in the world. He was proud of his title and he took his duties seriously. It was all he had. Until his true mate literally showed up on his doorstep.

While his brother—the overachiever—excelled at having a vampire as a mate, Alek wasn’t that optimistic he would. He wasn’t averse to love, and he’d often thought of how different his life could’ve turned out if he’d ever experienced the emotion. His life was a mess and he’d worn a mask of stability for a majority of that time, only showing his siblings and pack what they needed to see—a strong Volkov alpha. Not the damaged man he was, with a tortured soul and a rogue wolf.

Alek dropped his heavy head in his hands. Now, for some reason, I’ve been granted a true vampire mate. And not just any vampire. The intimidating Belleron Liatos. Lord High to the King and the leader of his army.

Belleron ‘Bell’ Liatos had come to the states for one reason—his best friend and Vampire King, Chadwick Bentley. He certainly didn’t come to be pounced on by a wolf that could act independently of its master. Not only was his destined cherished a complicated and confused man; but he was also unaware of the powerful presence that lurked in the shadows of his soul. Bell didn’t know he’d be the key to unlocking an exceptional triad that would play a critical role in fulfilling the prophesy.

This story DOES NOT contain or even mention MPREG.

No multiple pairings. No cliffhangers. Ends with a very HFN.

Warning: This book is M/M paranormal: If you DO NOT like alpha men shifting into large wolves, or vampires feeding from their destined beloveds, than this may not be the novel for you.

Carra's Review

One of the things this author is known for is the incredible alpha male characters she writes in her books.  They’re powerful, protective, intelligent, insanely hot—and all that without going overboard with their masculinity.  Now imagine three of those alphas in a single, formidable shifter…and that’s Alek.  But those three are not united, and the severely divided trichotomy is a major hurdle for Alek and Belleron to overcome.  Let the wild ride commence…

We were first introduced to Alek and Bell in the first book of this series—and yes, I do strongly advise you read that one first for the world background, character introductions, and most importantly Alek and Bell’s unconventional introduction to each other.  While after that first meeting you might think things would progress quickly for them that is not what you’ll find…so things do slow down in terms of them pursuing their fated mate bond.  That does NOT mean things ease off between them—it actually dials up the tension, sexual and otherwise.  And though Bell might seem like he comes across as stubborn and maybe even uncaring of shifter mating ways, it’s really all about respect for him, and supporting one’s partner.

Alek is unique in the shifter world, disconnected from his wolf and from the “other one” that inhabits him.  But he is the way he is for a reason, connected to the prophecy.  Alek is the heart and emotion, while Wolf is the protector—especially when it comes to Bell, and Wrath…well, Wrath is complicated and misunderstood.  Though his initial purpose in the world may have been what we’d consider negative, there’s much greater depth to him than even he realizes.  If the three of them can ever figure things out between them, oh the power they’d wield.

There are quite a few returning supporting characters from the first book, and I love that Farica (Alek’s sister) continues to be shown as a strong and compassionate female character.  Alek’s brother Mac has an interesting storyline that seems to begin its development towards the end of this story, and I’m still itching to get his brother Taleb’s story after the teasing from the first book.

There is also the introduction of some new characters.  There’s of course the baddie of the story who figures prominently for a shorter time than you might expect—but that actually fits well with Alek and Bell’s story since the more important issue is the division within Alek himself that needs to be healed.  We are also introduced to a new vampire near the end—one that contributes to that interesting storyline I mentioned regarding Mac.

You’re going to find suspense.  You’re going to find action.  And once Alek and Bell start to figure things out?  Cue the heat and passion.  If you’re like me, you’re going to LOVE Wrath.  I love the way this series is going, and can’t wait for more.  That’s 5 stars for Prophesy II: The Bringer of Wrath, an absolute must for M/M paranormal/shifter/vampire romance fans!  And yes, this one’s definitely for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content.

New Release-Excerpt & Giveaway: ADAM ONLY by Roe Horvat (Those Other Books #2)

Length: 39,000 words
Cover Design: Roe Horvat
Publisher: Beaten Track Publishing

Those Other Books

The Other Book - Amazon US | Amazon UK | Universal Link


On stage, Adam lets his passion drive him. All his secret desires, everything nasty, dirty, and beautiful flows freely through him, for once in harmony. His soul thrives when his body moves, but only on stage. Adam’s passionate nature makes him a great dancer…and a failure at life. He’s a lonely, emotional mess. Going home with a man far out of his reach is the last thing Adam should do. Christoffer represents everything Adam isn’t: strong, independent, educated, and rich. His kind eyes, at odds with his brutish form, make Adam’s knees and restraint buckle.

Once Christoffer sees Adam dancing, he’s lost. The young man is mesmerizing, otherworldly, and unpredictable. Whatever might happen between them, it will be transient, and Christoffer will most likely get hurt. The temptation is too great, however, and the sex explosive. He might as well enjoy every moment he’s given, even if it’s just one day, maybe two. If Christoffer treads carefully, Adam might stay until Monday.


He didn’t have a clue what he was doing. Why was he still here? He should leave. Now.

The house was far away from any main roads, but he could walk for a bit and then get a taxi to the nearest train station back to the city. Maybe there was a bus stop somewhere close. His thoughts sharpened—the jerking off, swim, and caffeine had cleared his brain. Determined not to waste more time daydreaming about wealthy bears who never gave a damn, he finished his coffee. He’d need to sneak back to the bathroom to get his clothes. And his phone. He shouldn’t have lingered.

He found which cabinet door in the kitchen hid the built-in dishwasher and placed the cup inside. Then he climbed the stairs on tiptoes and peeked into the bedroom. Christoffer slept on his back, snoring softly.

Adam spotted his phone on the nightstand. Christoffer must have put it on charge after Adam had fallen asleep. He wouldn’t dwell on how considerate that was. He snatched up the phone and closed himself in the bathroom.

Eying the red thong with disgust, he threw it in the trash. What had he been thinking? He dragged the jeans up his naked body, pulled on his socks and slid into the T-shirt. His jacket was downstairs. He opened the door carefully, ready to bolt without looking at the sleeping man.

Except Christoffer was now sitting on the edge of the bed, naked, staring up at Adam with sleepy eyes.


“Hi,” Christoffer murmured. His eyes slid up and down Adam’s body, noticing the clothes. His smile turned cautious.

“Hi.” Adam shifted from foot to foot. What now?

The moment dragged on until Adam’s heart was pounding. He needed to say something, quick, and get out of there before it could get any more awkward.

“I…” he began but closed his mouth again. He couldn’t decipher Christoffer’s expression. And all that skin on display was distracting.

Christoffer braced his hands on his knees and inhaled deeply, his Goliathan shoulders lifting. “You like eggs?”


“For breakfast.”

“Yeah,” Adam blurted before he thought of the implications. He was staying for breakfast? He wanted to. Stupid! He absolutely shouldn’t! Seeing Christoffer now, those gentle gray eyes such a contrast to his brutish form, Adam ached to stay. You stupid, horny, clingy asshole. Get out of here!

He opened his mouth to say something else, to apologize and whisper goodbye, but Christoffer was faster.

“Good. Wait for me in the kitchen. I just need to…” He gestured to the bathroom door behind Adam’s back.

“Oh. Sure.”

Adam stepped aside, quivering, and the big man stood in all his naked glory. He bent down and kissed Adam’s cheek, lingering, his breath hot by Adam’s ear. Then he disappeared into the bathroom. “I’ll be just a minute,” he threw over his shoulder before the door snapped shut.

Adam stood there, stunned, and touched his tingling cheek.

New Release-Excerpt & Giveaway: THE EARL NEXT DOOR by Amelia Grey (First Comes Love #1)

The Earl Next Door Tour Graphic
From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author
Amelia Grey
Series: First Comes Love # 1
Genre: Historical Romance
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Publication Date: May 28, 2019
One fiercely independent widow. One honest proposal. One unconventional game of love.
When Adeline, Dowager Countess of Wake, learns of her husband's sudden death, she realizes she's free. At last, she can do, go, and be as she pleases. Finally, she can have the life she has always dreamed of. She doesn't need, or want, to remarry. Especially not the supremely dashing Earl of Lyonwood, who makes Adeline yearn for his desire . . .
Lord Lyonwood, son of a philandering marquis, will not be like his father. He wants to run his estates and watch them flourish - and find a wife who brings love to his life. When he meets spirited and self-reliant Adeline in a case of near-scandalous mistaken identity, Lyon feels he's met his match. But Adeline isn't interested in a marriage proposal. She will only accept becoming his lover - and Lyon finds it hard to refuse. Unless the fire of his passion can melt Adeline's resolve . . .


"Youíre much younger than I assumed the owner of this establishment would be," Lyon confessed. "And as beautiful as you are in your crimson and gold, and in any other circumstances, or another location, I would be happy to pay whatever fee you charge to fulfill my needs. However, this is a respectable neighborhood and I cannot and will not sit by and allow a madam to move in and set up her business here." 

A trio of thumps resounded in Adeline's chest and then a few more. The pendulum on the clock must have ticked a half dozen times. Her brain seemed to freeze before the air swooshed out of her lungs. Shock roared through her. Her whole body stiffened before she felt her eyes narrow in outrage.

"Just where do you think you are, sir?"

"A house of pleasure, Madam."

Outrage quickly morphed to fury which flowed hot and fast, consuming her. Oh yes, she knew about such disgraceful, secret places. She'd overheard her late husband and his small group of gentlemen friends talk about visiting them. And this man thought her house was one of them

Adeline was skilled at holding in her emotions but this stranger had gone too far. With only one step she stood toe-to-toe with him. Lifting her face, she rose up on the ball of her feet and edged her nose closer to his. "You think this is one of the many private underground brothels hidden from all but Society's most elite gentlemen?"

"Isn't it?" he asked huskily.

There was no time to consider what her next move should be. Stiffening her spine and taking a step back, she proclaimed, "I am the Dowager Countess of Wake and you have trespassed too far. How dare you burst into my house and speak to me the way you have. You, sir, are an abomination to the term gentleman."

She fought to regain every ounce of her normal calm, her abiding restraint, her guiding sense of decorum in any unpleasant circumstance. But then she accidentally looked at his mouth, felt that long suppressed surge of yearning. Adeline didn't want this unusual mix of longing and angry dizziness to control her. She hated the truth of how womanly and desirable it made her feel to see hunger for her in his eyes. Hated the truth of how she was presented.

And then, in a moment of insanity, she thought of the very real possibility of those full lips on hers stirring with passion, and reason was gone.

Unable to do anything else before she lost herself completely, she drew back her hand and struck him soundly across the face. It was that, or kiss him.

Perhaps she chose the wrong one.

Review & Giveaway: BROKEN SILENCE by Felice Stevens (Rock Bottom #1)

Broken Silence (Rock Bottom #1)
by Felice Stevens

Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: May 15, 2019

Buy links:

Justin Molina has secrets. He’s served his time but remains a prisoner of his past, unable to  forgive himself for failing his family when they needed him most. Justin’s grief is overwhelming, but he keeps silent and focuses on his goals. About to graduate college, he tries to keep his head above water—no matter how many times life keeps knocking him down. When he’s forced to register for a poetry-writing class, Justin discovers putting words to his feelings might be exactly what his fractured heart needs to heal. Or is it the older professor with the bow ties and gentle smile who gives him a chance when no one else will? 

Professor Foster Faraday Harding is a broken man. His divorce is final, and he’s reverted back to the safety of his books. Even his poetry no longer brings him joy; he’s sleepwalking through life. The raw emotion of Justin’s poetry awakens Foster to desires he thought long buried in the ashes of his marriage. When he discovers Justin is struggling financially, Foster offers him a solution that benefits both of them. Soon it’s Foster who’s struggling with emotions he can’t understand: Justin is his student. And a man. One crazy night years earlier doesn’t mean anything. Foster is straight.

After months of denying the growing attraction between them, an unexpected kiss changes everything. Justin and Foster are no longer only professor and student—they’ve become lovers, but the strain of hiding their relationship increases with each passing day. Words have the power not only to hurt but to heal the greatest pain. If Foster and Justin listen to what their hearts are saying, they might break through their silence and live their own love poems—together. 

Carra's Review

Broken Silence has so many of the things I love to read about in contemporary romance—age gap, teacher/student, reformed ex-con who’s actually brilliant, and let’s also not forget class difference/opposites attract.  Felice Stevens brings all of these together with a touch of angst (though less than I would have expected given all of those in one story) and just the right dose of heat, and made this my second-favorite book of hers to date (it’s going to be almost impossible to knock The Arrangement out of that top spot for me).  All that and I’m not always so patient when it comes to slow burn romances.

I can’t imagine anyone not respecting how Justin has turned his life around, and just how hard he’s had to work to get to the point he’s at when the story begins.  As for the poetry he writes for Foster’s class, it’s incredibly emotional and moving—not just when he first starts writing (where it’s heartbreaking), but all throughout the story.  

Foster seemed so lonely, and didn’t appear to have much self-worth at the start of the story.  As Justin’s professor, he tries to firmly put a wall between them to keep things from developing into more than a professional relationship.  Tries.  And it lasts long enough to draw things out (at times a bit too much for me), though we all know how these things eventually go.

There are some great secondary characters that are of course crying out for their own stories (Justin’s friend Benny and Foster’s friend Ross), and I also liked Foster’s department head Carolyn, who adds a bit of spirit to things.  Justin’s mother and his mother’s friend are great additions as well.  There’s some buildup to Justin and Foster being found out, and while the resolution and subsequent denouement of the story felt just a touch anti-climactic, it definitely still had that happy ending the author is known for, still with the emotion and smiles.

4.5 stars for Broken Silence, and a definite recommendation to any M/M romance fan.  This story is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content.

Exclusive to Amazon and Available to Borrow with Kindle Unlimited.

Length: 90,000 words approx.
Cover Design: Natasha Snow


--- Taken. Prized. Possessed. Loved. ---

Clover is an orphan and has led a tough and chaotic life. No stability. No money. No friends. He trusts no one.

His already miserable life takes a nosedive when he ends up in the hands of a human trafficking gang. Someone has placed a request for a young albino man, and Clover is to become the property of a mysterious buyer who will stop at nothing to satisfy their depraved desire. Clover’s fate seems sealed until four bounty hunters appear to take out his captors and accidentally save him.

The four mercenaries want to move on, but when Clover pleads for protection, they offer it to him at a price. In the beginning, the arrangement is all kinds of shady, but as he gets to know the four men who’ve taken him on a wild ride, his developing feelings might become as dangerous as the elusive buyer.

But can a relationship with four such different men even work? Men who kill for a living? Men so full of contradictions?

Tank. The massive ex-soldier eager to be Clover’s Daddy.

Pyro. Wild, tattooed, with a filthy mouth and an itch for violence.

Boar. Ginger, bearded, a big teddy bear who can turn into a grizzly.

Drake. Dark and dangerous, with a tongue as sharp as his knives.

Can these men provide him with the love and security he craves? Or has Clover made the worst mistake of his life?

Carra's Review

Though this author duo is known for their darker, grittier stories, so far I’ve read two of their “sweeter” ones; therefore, I wasn’t sure what to expect with Their Bounty being labeled “dark” other than the themes it would touch on listed in the synopsis.  What I found was something decidedly unconventional, yet still compelling enough for me to enjoy the overall story.

When it comes to the four mercenaries—Tank, Drake, Boar, and Pyro—it’s pretty much a case of what-you-see-is-what-you-get…maybe with a slight exception for Boar who may seem a softie at times, but can be fierce when the need arises.  They’re tough, hardened, and skilled in what they do.  It’s easy too to see Tank as a Daddy, Pyro as the wild one, Boar as considerate and loving, and Drake as the aloof, intense loner.

Clover…well, let’s just say I’m on the fence regarding him.  Yes, he’s just nineteen—and this shows given his indecision in many instances, and the actual decisions he makes in others.  This is particularly evident in a scene with Boar, the sweetest of the team (as much as any of them can be considered “sweet”) and the one who becomes the most attached to Clover.  The way Clover reacts to the intimacy frankly pissed me off.  Does Clover learn and grow during the story?  Yes, though his trust issues make things very difficult, and for me it was a bit frustrating to read.

Are there plenty of hot scenes?  Of course—it’s to be expected in this duo’s books.  Remember though, this is a harem situation so with a couple of exceptions this is more about Clover’s relationship with each individual on the team.  Those relationships do play a part in how all five of them work together, but the overall story is not about a group romance—it’s more about how they make everything work as a unit.

This story is not going to be for everyone (obviously—even for me, I have to be in the right frame of mind to read the darker stuff).  But if you’re the type of reader who likes to go down the dark rabbit holes and are okay with blurred lines and sometimes questionable situations, you’ll enjoy Their Bounty and will want to continue on with the series.  For me, Clover’s attitude and the way the story felt longer than it needed to be has me giving it 3.5 stars.  I’ll be checking out the next book in the series to see where things go from here, even if it’s only to get my fill of Boar (yes, he was my clear favorite).  This book is strictly for readers 18+ for adult language, sexual content with multiple partners, adult situations and instances of human trafficking as well as a borderline dub-con scene.

Teasers & Excerpt: PRINCE OF KILLERS by Layla Reyne (Fog City #1)

Prince of Killers
by Layla Reyne

Cover Design: Cate Ashwood Designs
Cover Photography: Wander Aguiar Photography
Series: Fog City #1
Publisher: Self-Published
Release Date (Ebook & Print): June 10, 2019
Subgenre: M/M Romantic Suspense


No indiscriminate killing. No collateral damage. No unvetted targets.

These are the rules Hawes Madigan lives by. Rules that make being Fog City’s Prince of Killers bearable. Soon, he’ll be king—of an organization of assassins—and the crown has never felt heavier. Until the mysterious Dante Perry swaggers into his life.

Dante looks like a rock god and carries himself like one too, all loose-limbed and casually confident. He also carries a concealed weapon, a private investigator’s license, and a message for the prince. Someone inside Hawes’s organization is out to kill the future king.

In the chaos that follows the timely warning, Hawes comes to depend on Dante. On his skills as an investigator, on the steadiness he offers, and on their moments alone when Hawes lets Dante take control. As alliances are tested and traitors exposed, Hawes needs Dante at his back and in his bed. But if the PI ever learns Hawes’s darkest secret, Hawes is sure to get a knife to the heart—and a bullet to the brain—instead.

There’s no shortage of twists and turns in this new romantic suspense trilogy from Layla Reyne. Prince of Killers is book one of three. Fair warning: buckle up, cliffhangers ahead!


“How do I trust you won’t kill me in my sleep?” Hawes sniped, more out of sexual frustration than any real fear. He felt more like himself than he had all night. Steady again.

“Same way I’m going to have to trust you not to kill me. You are the Prince of Killers, aren’t you?”

Hawes bit his tongue, fighting the words that wanted to form. Twice in one night. Hawes’s hate for the title crested once more. Hate that he was the prince when it was actually the three of them—him, Holt, and Helena—running the organization. Hate that he’d been forced into the role because he was the oldest, technically, and hate that when someone had to make the tough decisions, it was always him. He’d been the prince since he was sixteen and had given the doctors permission to turn off his parents’ ventilators when neither his grandparents, who were absent at the time, nor his siblings could make the call.

Cold as ice, the stories went.

He hated the killer part just as much. It implied malice, evilness, and cruelty when Hawes had strived to take those variables out of the equation. He knew what he was, what his family did, but there was a place for them, a need for assassins in a world where people didn’t play by the rules and legal justice missed its mark. He’d felt like a killer only twice in his life—that morning in the hospital when he’d become the prince, and that night three years ago when he’d spilled an innocent woman’s blood. A day that had somehow brought into his life the man now stretched out on his couch. And Hawes needed him to think he was the Prince of Killers, for both their sakes.

For now.
