SERIES:  Chained in Darkness #1

AUTHOR:  Nicholas Bella

PUBLISHER: Self Published

LENGTH: 45 Pages

BLURB:

I’ve been betrayed by someone I trusted. Because of him, I was captured by my loathed enemy: The vampires. Right now, the sun is still high in the sky, but I know when it sets, I’m as good as dead. They can’t wait to get their fangs into me. I guess some would say I have it coming. I did raise a lot of hell with my Resistance crew, and I was planning on raising a hell of a lot more at dawn before I was sold out by Jonah. The vampires, werewolves and dragons, have been trying to track me down for months and I’d always been two steps ahead of them.
*Laughs* I guess my number is up. I just hope they make it quick. You see, the vampires in my reality aren’t the romantic lot you read about in books. They don’t sparkle or hang out at high schools with their teenage girlfriends. Hell no, vampires are brutal, calculating, sadistic and bloodthirsty. As a matter of fact, all of the monsters are! That’s how they were able to take over the world so easily and change an entire civilization to suit their needs. Whatever happens, I know it’s not going to be pretty, so I’m preparing myself for the worst. May God help me.

Warning: This novelette series contains hardcore sexual situations between men, not meant for sensitive eyes. I’m talking crude, lewd and full of attitude. This series will most likely either offend you or get ya revved up. This series isn’t going to be pulling any punches whatsoever, so you’ve been warned. Mature Adult Content meant for readers looking for something dark, taboo, sexy, and unapologetic in their paranormal erotica. This is NOT a romance. This novelette is approximately 13300 words.

REVIEW:

The main character, Noel, is taken prisoner by a vampire named Theoden. Though Noel is straight and somewhat homophobic, Theoden turns him into a vampire, making him come and crave a male’s touch in the process. Noel is still put off by the idea of having sex with men, but his vampire captor lets him know, in somewhat violent terms, that Noel will be his play thing whether he likes it or not.

This was a small glimpse into Noel and Theoden’s world of vampires and other shifters. Though nothing much has happened so far, the author sets the stage for what seems like a lot of hurt and humiliation for Noel. I want to sympathize for Noel and his situation, but so far I am not too fond of him due to his homophobic statements and lack of emotion after the death of his friend. He is a fighter, which should be sexy, but at this point neither character seems particularly appealing to me. This might be because Noel hasn’t displayed any attraction toward Theoden. If anything, Theoden may be displaying lust toward Noel, but it mostly feels like cruelty. Since this book is just one episode, I imagine there will be some kind of attraction that builds between them in episodes to come. Overall, this was a dark and twisted tale, and I am curious to see what happens next in this series.

RATING: I enjoyed it

Review: Prince’s Gambit: Captive Prince Book Two by C.S. Pacat #DarkFantasy #MM

TITLE: Prince’s Gambit: Captive Prince Book Two Prince's Gambit (Captive Prince, #2)

LENGTH:  216 Pages

BLURB:

“This was Vere’s most powerful lords unfurling their banners for war.”

With their countries on the brink of war, Damen and his new master Prince Laurent must exchange the intrigues of the palace for the sweeping might of the battlefield as they travel to the border to avert a lethal plot.

Forced to hide his identity, Damen finds himself drawn to the dangerous, charismatic Laurent. But as the fledgeling trust between the two men deepens, the truth of secrets from both their pasts is poised to deal them the crowning death blow…

Goodreads Link

REVIEW:

Oh my god, this book is truly amazing! My heart is so intertwined with this series. When I read book one I was so frustrated; dying for just one touch, but by the end of this book I was crying. I’m still crying with happiness. Prince’s Gambit picks up where Captive Prince drops off, with Damen accompanying Laurent into battle. Everywhere they turn they are dodging swords and they don’t know exactly who to trust.

I can’t say much without spoilers, so I’ll just say that the ending is breathtaking and spectacular. One note; I think that Laurent is just too smart to not know Damen’s true identity. It just does not seem possible that he doesn’t know. I hope so much that I’m right.  I can’t wait to read book three. It is eating a hole in my Kindle as I type.

RATING: Absolutely crazy about it!

BLURB:

Leo has been sent on a mission to find a missing doxie. And after weeks at Leo’s side, Kaleb is suddenly alone. Free of the cruelty the Chimera, he should be rejoicing. But instead, he becomes aware of a void in his heart, he never knew was there until Leo wasn’t there to fill it. When Leo returns Kaleb is faced with the choice of disobeying Leo—forcing him to take ambrosia—or risk losing him forever.

With a single flower, Leo is back under the control of the Association. And what kind of punishment is suitable for a doxie who disobeys his Master, even though it saves his life? Leo has a list of ideas, starting with Kaleb’s first visit to a Gathering.

At the Gathering of the gods, doxies, and mortal men, Kaleb first lays eyes on Aaron. The beautiful doxie is presented by the god Sol. There he will be fed the ambrosia, Awakened to his journey of immortality, and then serve his god, Sol, for all to see. Only the horror of Aaron’s treatment by Sol makes Kaleb realize monsters come in many forms.

And not all of them hunt doxies.

Goodreads Link

REVIEW:

This book begins when Leo returns from a mission to find a missing doxie. Though Leo kills many of the people responsible for taking him, Leo is injured multiple times. Before he stopped taking ambrosia, he would have healed almost instantly from any wound, but since the drug is out of his system, his immortality is at risk. The other gods fear they may lose Leo and convince Kaleb to feed him the flower with a kiss. Kaleb knows Leo doesn’t want the drug, but he can’t stand the thought of losing Leo. After Kaleb feeds him the flower, Leo is healed, but he is once again hooked on the substance he wanted so badly to escape. Leo wants to punish Kaleb by taking him to a gathering where he would be free for others to touch, but when they arrive Leo guards him jealously. Though the other gods imagine they will have a go at Kaleb, Leo is willing to face the worst punishment to keep that from happening.

Chained was just as erotic and extreme as the first book. Kaleb’s punishments are excruciating, but at the same time amazingly hot. The chemistry between Kaleb and Leo is off the charts, and burning hotter as the effect of the ambrosia that Kaleb emits becomes so strong that it leaves them both passed out for days after they are together. In addition to the unbelievable erotica, we learn more about the world of the gods and doxies. There’s a monster on the loose hunting doxies, and there is so much tension between the gods over Leo’s desire to keep Kaleb that I can imagine some kind of war on the horizon. I was so sad about what happens to Aaron. I don’t know if it’s possible, but I’m hoping that Kaleb has the gift of healing. I look forward to seeing what happens next. I recommend this book to anyone who loves m/m dark erotica, dub-con, and m/m dark fantasy.

RATING: Absolutely loved it!

The Artist and His Alpha Tour: Interview + Giveaway ~ Lisa Oliver

 Banner300x250

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Lisa Oliver, author of The Artist and His Alpha, book 3 in the Alpha and Omega series.

Hi Lisa, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.

Hi and thank you for having me here today. If I had to describe myself in one sentence it would be to say “I am a character driven writer with a love for all things paranormal.” All of my books are classified as M/M paranormal erotic romances, which is a bit of a mouthful, but those types of books are important to me for many reasons.

This book is another example of my belief in the power of love. Caden, the omega of the story, hides himself away, not in an attic as such, but pretty close, working as a successful artist but shunning the world because of past abuse.  His fear of living is almost tangible. Sean, his Alpha mate is arrogant, self-absorbed and has done enough living for both of them. Their meeting was by chance, but because this is a true mate trope, it changed them both, and it is those changes that are explored in this story.

  • What book do you wish you could have written?

I have read thousands of books over the years – thousands of them, and when I first started writing I wanted to emulate this author, or that one. But I quickly learned it was far better to speak with my own style. I respect all authors for the words they have shared.

  • How important are names to you (in your books)? Do you choose names based on liking the way it sounds or meaning? How do you choose your names?

I am one of those people who believe names have power, so naming my character is an important element of my stories. I always check the meaning of names before I use them, and I often use Celtic or Latin sources to find the more unusual names I use.

  • Were you already a great writer? Have you always enjoyed writing? How long have you been writing?

I have been writing for a living for twenty years, but I have only been writing my fictional stories for the past two and a half years. I have always been an avid reader, since I was four years old, and I think that is important for any writer.

  • Which character, from any of your books, do you consider your greatest work?

All of my characters have traits that are special to me but my most recent character, Luke, from Tangling with Bears, was the most challenging because of his unique personality. I was thrilled when readers told me they got it – they got the type of personality I was trying to portray and they loved him.

  • What hobbies do you enjoy?

I love reading and I make a point of reading at least one book a day. But when I am not at my computer I love photography, painting and drawing in charcoal.  I am also a fan of online shopping and real world arts and craft markets.

Blurb:

Caden Wolfe lives his life hiding from the world. As an Omega with a brute of an Alpha looking for him, he can’t afford to take any chances.  He is happy enough with his art, his one good friend Felix and his agent who adores his paintings. It’s a far cry from life on the streets and Caden is determined to keep working hard, and stay out of the spotlight. Staying away from all things wolf is easy enough in the city, until he meets the one man with the potential to blow his cover and his way of life, out of the water.

Sean Black has it all – a brother for pack, a home pack that is still supportive but far enough away not to interfere with his daily life, a good business, and men who clamor for his attention every night of the week. The last thing he wants or needs is a mate, but after a brief meeting with a gorgeous artist, he realizes his life will change, and not necessarily in a good way.

A misunderstanding leads to danger for Caden and Sean has to make a choice.  Can he give his Omega what he needs, or should he make sure he’s protected and then walk away? A rogue Alpha with an agenda of his own, a trap, and trouble from the council are just a few of the things this couple will have to contend with if they are ever to have their HEA.

BadgeEXCERPT:

“Holy shit, he has a gun. Caden, for fuck’s sake don’t shoot!”

Sean heard Felix yell and he damn near pushed Liam off the fire escape, leaping up the last of the stairs. He could understand how Felix would want to talk quickly, especially if a gun was involved, but he had to see Caden for himself. As he stood on a rickety ledge he was momentarily stunned by the vision in front of him. A huge lit space littered with canvases spoke of hard work, dedication, passion for art and an apparent disregard for mess. And in front of it all stood Caden – locked, loaded and ready for bear.

The young man looked even better than Sean remembered. His slim, pale torso gleamed under the light, his unruly mop of straight blond hair falling just over the top of one eye. All Caden appeared to be wearing was a pair of jeans that hung low on his hips – a truly sexy picture. But it was the confident way Caden held the gun in his hands, and the unflinching glare in his eyes, that touched Sean’s heart. Felix had been right about one thing. Caden was determined to defend his home, and he looked more than capable of doing it. Damn, if that idea didn’t slam Sean in the groin and hang on.

“What are you doing here, Felix?” Caden’s voice held traces of nervousness that wouldn’t be noticed by human ears, but Sean noticed that the hands holding the gun didn’t waver.

“I was worried about you,” Felix called out, stepping closer to the glass, his hands spread to show he was unarmed. “We all were. You wouldn’t answer your door; you weren’t taking my calls. I had to know you were all right. We’re friends, Caden, I thought you trusted me. Now please, let us in. This damn ledge is fucking unsafe and you know I’m scared of heights.”

Caden held his glare for a long minute, and Sean wasn’t sure the young man would ever move. But then he carefully raised his weapon, removed the magazine, which he tucked in his back pocket, and then walked over to rest the gun against the wall.  Only then did he come towards the large panes of glass, releasing a latch, which Sean realized was actually a door latch. What he had mistaken for windows doubled as large sliding doors.

Once all three men were inside of what was a huge space, Caden seemed unsure of himself. “I know we’re friends,” he said to Felix hesitantly – scared, but apparently determined to defend his actions. “I’m not doing anything wrong.” His eyes seemed to catch Sean’s automatically and Sean was shocked to see they were full of fear again. “I’m an adult. This is my place, my territory. I’m not intruding on anyone’s space. I have a right to be here.”

Sean realized in that instant that Caden’s immediate fear had a name – the Black Brothers – and damn, if that didn’t make him feel sick. He and Liam were full-blown Alpha wolves, and his little Omega must have thought that they had a pack, or at least a right to the territory he lived in. No wonder the poor guy had locked himself in and refused to talk to anyone. He was terrified of losing his home and possibly his life.

Felix looked confused. “No one said you didn’t have any right to be here. This is your home, bought and paid for. No one can take it away from you so long as you pay your taxes, and your trust does that for you.”

“Then why did you bring them?” Caden hadn’t stopped looking at Sean, but clearly Liam was included in the ‘them’ comment as well. “They know what I’m talking about. Why are they here, if not to beat me, torture me, rape me and then kick me out of my home? That’s what men like them do. What are they doing here?”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Kendall McKenna is an author of M/M erotic romance novels featuring well-developed characters, complex stories, and realistic action sequences.

Kendall McKenna is the MLR Press 2013 Author of the Year. Her first work of fiction was written at the worldly age of nine, and was a transformative work that expanded on the story told in a popular song of the time.

She tried her hand at vampire and cowboy fiction, winning high school poetry and short story contests along the way. It wasn’t until she discovered the world of m/m erotic fiction and found her stride with cops, Marines and muscle cars, that she felt inspired to share her stories with readers who enjoy the same things.

Putting herself through college by working in a newly-created HIV testing clinic in her local Department of Health, introduced Kendall to the gay and lesbian community. Understanding and empathy has made her a lifetime advocate of GLBT issues.

A brief bout of unemployment gave Kendall the time and focus she needed to finally produce a novel worth submitting for publication. Her first novel, Brothers In Arms , introduced the world to her authentic military stories and characters. Kendall’s second novel, Strength of the Pack, was nominated for a 2013 Bookie Award, by Author’s After Dark.

Kendall was born and raised in Southern California, where she still lives and works. A non-conventional relationship has kept her happy for the last decade. Her four dogs enjoy it when she writes, as she sits still long enough for them to curl up around her.

 

Review: Ezekiah by Lisa Henry #DarkErotica #Fantasy #MM @LisaHenryOnline

TITLE: Ezekiah 

AUTHOR:  Lisa Henry

PUBLISHER: Goodreads BDSM Group’s “Bound by Ink” 

LENGTH: 98 Pages

BLURB:

In the shifter world, submission means something different than it does to humans.
Ezekiah Sadler is an omega who doesn’t want to be claimed.
Parker Ellis is an alpha who needs to make the omega his.
Ezekiah’s wolf might submit to the first alpha who claims him, but Ezekiah wants more than that. If Parker can see past old prejudices, he might find his omega is more than he expected, and exactly what he needs.

Goodreads Link 

REVIEW:

This book was both thrilling and hot. The story begins when Ezekiah is out in the world on his own and not bound to any pack. Since he’s an omega, things are a little dangerous for him, but he keeps out of trouble by avoiding wolf territory.  However, when circumstances lead him into danger, Ezekiah must run for his life or be claimed against his will by an alpha. Ezekiah is rescued by another alpha named Parker, but Parker’s reputation would be on the line if he let a stray omega go without marking and claiming him.

I really loved this book. I’ve read some other wolf shifter books, but this was by far the best. I loved how Ezekiah struggles to be independent even though his wolf wants to be dominated and knotted by an alpha. The struggle makes the relationship between Parker and Ezekiah extremely tense and erotic. When Ezekiah’s desires finally agrees with his wolf’s, the union between him and his alpha is amazing. I recommend this book to anyone who loves m/m dark erotica, m/m shifter fantasy, and m/m romance.

RATING: Loved it!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

My life is a flurry of writing, art and creativity. You can usually find me reading a book, scribbling notes in a notebook for future creations, typing on a laptop with music blaring in my ears or buried in my basement watching documentaries and sitting behind a sewing machine.

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember and have boxes of old notebooks in horrible handwriting to prove it. Only recently have I stumbled back into writing and finishing my ideas.

Seeking the Storyteller is the first novel I’ve published; with my partner in crime and life, Briana Lawrence. I also write horror, fantasy, supernatural and occasionally romance pieces which I am currently shopping around through contests and publishers.

(My opinions and views are my own – and may not necessarily represent companies or publishers I work for.)

SERIES: The Invisible Chains #3

AUTHOR: Andrew Ashling

PUBLISHER: Omidon Publishing

LENGTH: 515 Pages

BLURB:

Anaxantis, prince of Ximerion.

Not certain who he can trust, Anaxantis keeps recruiting and training troops, with dogged tenacity, to face the barbarian invasion.

Who is the spy, leaking information to his father, the high king? What to do about the new arrival who tries to free his brother? Was the barbarian prince really captured or does he have a hidden agenda?

Amid all the preparations for war, Lorcko of Iramid is looking for love. True love, this time. However, his reputation is working against him.

Anaxantis has his own troubles in the love department.

Soon he will be forced to make some hard decisions. Is he up to it, or will he finally buckle down under the strain?

REVIEW:

Oh, my god, this book is so good. There are so many twists and turns. Although I can’t say much without spoilers, everything was orchestrated perfectly. I was crying at the end and I’m still so happy about how this trilogy concluded. As a side note, Anaxantis reminds me of Alexander the Great in many ways. Anaxanis is a leader who is young and cunning, but also flawed who knows how to make his troops love him. It will be interesting to see how his character progresses. I’ll certainly be reading on because I have to know what comes next. The wrap up was awesome, and the intrigue for the books to come are set. I recommend this series to anyone who loves M/M dark erotica and M/M fantasy with a Middle Ages feel to it. I’m truly in love with this series.

RATING: Absolutely crazy about it! I will read it again someday!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Thirty years ago, I started writing m/m romance. My writing remained a secret lest my friends thought me a freak. Writing about men inserting tab A into slot B didn’t seem the norm for a female teenager. Reading Gordon Merrick, John Rechy and Larry Kramer helped me fill in informational gaps. Yes, I read these books in my bedroom.

As the years progressed and I discovered my sexual path, I still wrote m/m romance, although the stories progressed from lurking in notebooks to hiding on the computer.

Running B-Side, an indie music magazine, helped develop my dialogue and description skills. While traveling to interview bands, writing fiction percolated in the background. Traveling also offered me new backdrops and locations for my stories.

Now I am glad I kept the writing faith. Six published novellas and novels later, my life is a fun quandary of too many stories hindered by slow typing skills. I accept the silly challenge.

When not obsessing over unique ways to describe erotic encounters, I enjoy reading, gardening or more like trying not to kill everything, traveling, arguing politics and teaching my house bunnies tricks. Unfortunately, the furry furies refuse to answer e-mails or blog posts. They also refuse to clean their litter boxes. Brats. I enjoy cooking for my beloved partner because she endures the endless experiments with grace.

I hope my manic devotion to words and romance connects with my readers. Is that a sincere enough ending? Drat, the sentiment needs work. Blame my sloppy muse.

Title: The Necromancer’s Dance

Series: The Beacon Hill Sorcerer #1

Publisher: Self Published

Length: 212 pages

The Necromancer's Dance E-Book CoverBlurb:

In a world where magic is real and evil walks amongst humanity, a young sorcerer is beset upon by enemies, both old and new. Angelus Salvatore is the only necromancer in all of Boston, and his name is whispered warily by the undead and fellow sorcerers alike. He and his brother Isaac are the lone survivors of an attack by an army of the undead, in which Angel used a spell so powerful it forever marked his place in history. Now, years later, Angel struggles to balance his career as a teacher of the higher magical arts, his role as big brother, and a tenuous relationship with an Elder vampire from the local clan. When his brother’s boyfriend is used as a pawn in a mysterious plot to draw Angel out, Angel is once again drawn back into the old hostilities that fueled the Blood Wars and led to his family’s death.

Leaning on others for help is something Angel cannot do, and while he searches for clues into who may be targeting him and his brother, Angel finds his heart steadily growing occupied with Simeon, Elder and vampire. Dealing with death magic and vampires on a daily basis may leave Angel jaded when it comes to life and staying that way, but the more time he spends fending off the ancient vampire’s attention and affections, the more he realizes he wants to give in.

EXCERPT

He must have passed out, too damn tired from a long day at work, interrupted sleep, and a semi-major working that consumed a huge portion of his reserves. It took power to use power, and even though Angel fueled the spell with ambient magic, he still had to control and shape the working. It was a bitch, doing magic cold like that, and he would have been better off if he hadn’t gone into it stressed out and tired. Not to mention he couldn’t remember the last time he ate anything more substantial than tea and a muffin. Isaac moving out meant Angel forgot to eat more often than not.

Angel woke wrapped up in his favorite blanket, his bed warm and welcoming. Something was tickling his face, and he worked a hand free from under the blanket to swipe at his cheek. Feeling cool skin and soft lips, Angel opened his eyes.

He was in Simeon’s arms, laying half on his clothed chest, their faces so close together the vampire’s deep green eyes were all he could see.

Angel’s hand was caught up in Simeon’s, their fingers intertwining. Angel’s eyes drifted shut as Simeon closed the tiny distance between them, his soft and cool lips ghosting over Angel’s. He pulled in a deep breath of Simeon-flavored air, the vampire’s scent filling his mouth and nose.

The scent of fresh blood was in there too—Simeon must have fed before taking Angel home, the potent tang of hot metal impossible to miss. The sensation of Simeon’s lips barely touching Angel’s did unrepeatable things to his nervous system, setting him on fire with a cool flame.

His body jerked, just a little, freezing and alternately relaxing as Simeon’s lips settled over his in a full kiss, with a hint of tongue and the nip of sharp teeth.

MEET THE AUTHOR

I’m a thirty something woman with way too big an imagination, but that comes in handy when I’m writing. I have been writing since I was a child, when I took a four-page assignment on what I was going to do on summer vacation and turned it into a 100 page fantasy epic all written by hand…in crayons. No joke.

I work a day job, but I can’t share for who, since the Old Man isn’t as liberated as the people who read my books. I’m married, I have furbabies, and I live with loved ones. I adore a certain show about a British consulting detective and his grumpy army doctor, and that spawned an addiction to Johnlock fanfiction, which then evolved into me writing it. Gawd, that’s embarrassing. Put this down in the TMI section of my Bio, okay? I enjoy martial arts, movies where things blow up, and I wish I lived in a Marvel movie.

I live in the beautiful and lonely Berkshire County in Massachusetts, and I see way more wildlife than I care to on a daily basis (bears!). My perfect day is reading surrounded by friends and family who don’t think it’s odd I want to hang out but not talk, and my favorite scent of all time is a cool fall evening with leaves burning…. less a scent, and more of an experience.
