Out of the Cage: Sometimes dealing with unexpected events can drive you crazy…but that isn’t always a bad thing.
Borscht Kuznetsov is the master of his vampire coven. He likes his donors silent, his people obedient, and his life orderly. When an alarm on the northern outskirts of his property alert him to intruders, he leads the charge to drive the humans from his land. To his surprise, Borscht discovers they were chasing an Egyptian fruit bat. Confused by his sudden onslaught of protectiveness, he realizes the little creature is a shifter…who refuses to shift.
With his only memories that of his time spent in captivity, Sekani doesn’t know much. He can’t even understand the words of the people around him after he escapes from his prison. Still, one of them smells really good…and the man saved him from the hunters. When the man finally says a few words in halting English, Sekani learns that his world is so much larger than he could ever have imagined.
Can Borscht handle his beloved’s overabundance of excitement, especially when he learns that Sekani has friends that need rescuing?
I’ve read many books by Charlie Richards and I’ve enjoyed them all. I have to admit that Driving Borscht Batty is one of my favorites in the Wolves of Stone Ridge series and it’s made me excited to see what the author has in store for us next!
It’s easy to become captivated by the paranormal world Ms. Richard’s creates. It’s an interesting mix of shifters, vampires, humans and both bad and good guys that easily keep this reader guessing as to what is going to happen next. Ms. Richard’s does a great job at allowing her story to flow quite smoothly without bogging it down with too much information, instead she focuses on the romance between the two men, so it is very easy to totally fall in love and root for her heroes to have the happy ending they deserve.
One of the reasons why I loved this book so much is that I fell in love with one of the main heroes, Sekani. His childlike innocence and sweet and loving disposition really pulled at my heartstrings. Who knew I would love a bat-shifter so much? I could easily understand why the vampire, Borscht was immediately drawn to him and loved watching him love, guide and be so patient and wonderful with his bat-shifter mate. These two heroes really connected on an emotional level and I loved every minute I spent watching their bond strengthen between them.
Between the strong romance these two men had and the fast-paced, action filled story, Driving Borscht Batty was a start to finish read for me without any interruptions or stopping for me whatsoever. I’m anxious to see what else Ms. Richard’s has in store for us in her next installment in the series and hope Sekani’s friends will have their own story too.
Driving Borscht Batty is a captivating romance that will leave a smile on your face. It’s a perfect choice for a quick summer read and I highly recommend it to anyone who craves a sexy paranormal romance with some unique and provocative heroes that will live with you long after you finish their story.
Driving Borscht Batty is the 29th book in the Wolves of Stone Ridge series. Although it could easily be read as a stand-alone book, I highly recommend reading her other books in the series because all of them bring something special to each and every story.
