He finds a hustler named Corey who reminds him of a previous lover. Will wants a piece of Corey, and won’t let his badge get in the way of hooking up.

Luckily De’Andre seems just as interested.

New relationships form and existing ones continue to evolve for the wolves of Angel Hills.

Vincent struggles with his beta mate Craig’s rejection, while alpha mate Kale considers a dramatic resolution to the matter. Gabriel’s second pregnancy is even more difficult than the first, and an outsider begins to consider a connection to another omega’s recent troubles. Meanwhile, his and Ian’s secret eats away at the ill omega.

Christopher turns eighteen and, losing hope Xavier might never think of Christopher as anything but a little brother, he accepts another werewolf’s attention. X’s eventual interest proves the beginning of the young beta’s problems rather than the end.

Accustomed to gaining enemies when pursuing what he wants, Canaan learns something new about himself from über-alpha, Duncan, who, long-convinced his extreme needs will never be met in Angel Hills, becomes unwillingly caught up with the bratty beta.

Will the threats to the werewolves’ way of life from both within and outside the compound bring the pack closer together or pull them further apart?

The lovers subsist on a handful of stolen encounters even as Warin plans to free Benedict. As the king lies near death, a rebellion against the heir is plotted.

But when the chance to escape during an attack on the castle presents itself, Benedict and Warin stay behind to fight. Will they be forced to sacrifice their chance for love and happiness for honor?

Gabbi Reviews: The Sorcerer’s Lover by Shawn Lane

Title: Sorcerer’s Lover

Author: Shawn Lane

Publisher: JMS Books

Pages: 43

Characters: Warin, Benedict

POV:  3rd

Sub-Genre: Historical, Romance

Kisses: 5

Blurb:

When Warin, a sorcerer, needs a large amount of coins to rescue his sister from her abductor, he chooses to abduct someone himself. And he selects the man he has been lusting after ever since sharing a secret, sensual moment at court months earlier — Benedict, the beautiful and illegitimate son of the king.

At first, Benedict is reluctant to give into forbidden desires, but he cannot resist the enigmatic sorcerer’s pull. Yet when he surrenders to his lust, he’s also not sure whether it’s of his own free will or because of a spell Warin cast on him.

As the men grow closer, however, they realize that when the ransom is paid, Benedict must be released and Warin must flee from punishment. Will they be able to end their passionate affair and separate, or will they fight to stay together, even if it means facing the king’s wrath?

Review:

I admit that I’ve read this book before when it was first released years ago. I’ve read so many books since then, I kind of forgot about it so when I noticed it was re-released by JMS books, I knew I wanted to read it again and see if I enjoyed it as much as I once did.

For one thing, Ms. Lane does a good job writing historical romances. I quickly found myself wrapped up into her characters’ lives and enjoyed the story they had to tell. One of the tricky things about gay historical romances can be the ‘taboo’ of homosexuality back in the both recent and dark ages. Ms. Lane does an excellent job tackling this while still allowing her heroes work toward a happy ending.

Who doesn’t love reading about a sorcerer who falls in love with a young prince? I was and I still am intrigued by the interesting dynamics of this couple and truly loved the sizzling chemistry they had together. I liked reading about their forbidden love and truly rallied behind this couple as they strive to work together to rescue Warin’s sister. Though this book ends with a positive note, it is definitely open-ended and I hope that Ms. Lane writes more about Warin and Benedict in the future.

If you are in the mood for a well-written historical romance with plenty of intrigue and erotic moments between two fascinating heroes then Sorcerer’s Lover is definitely an excellent choice for you!

Highly Recommended!

Gabbi Reviews: Hate to Love You by J.D. Walker

Title: Hate to Love You
Author: J.D. Walker
Publisher: JMS Books
Pages: 28
Characters: Sybron Adell, Rio Jachetta
POV: 1st
Sub-Genre: Contemporary Romance
Kisses: 4

Blurb:

Sybron Adell is forty-one and comfortable with his life, mostly. He has eye candy in the luscious form of his neighbor Finn and a job that is stable. Of course, there’s always a thorn to be found, and that’s Rio Jachetta, Sybron’s boss. They’re good friends, but sometimes, Rio pushes the limits. Just for fun.

And then Rio goes too far, with a merger and lost jobs being the least of Sybron’s worries. Rio’s cavalier attitude is not appreciated by Sybron, who is adept at pouring coffee on thousand-dollar suits, when necessary.

If Rio wants to fix things, he may have to overcome his natural arrogance and think of others for a change, in order to save his friendship with Sybron. Heaven alone knows if it will work, especially if he wants more.

Review:

Hate to Love You is a short and entertaining story that quickly captured my interest from start to finish. J.D. Walker writes fast-paced and interesting short stories that I easily enjoy.

Sybron is a forty-something man whose life has been on pause for some time. Sybron has a routine he lives by and pretty much doesn’t enjoy the company of others. Because he is a tad bit grumpy most of the time, he doesn’t have many friends and his life is working full time and then going home alone.

For years, Sybron’s boss and sometimes friend, Rio, has been driving him crazy. Rio’s love ‘em and leave ‘em lifestyle and his smooth disposition keeps Sybron on edge. Rio’s constructive criticism and teasing banter he shares with Sybron keeps Sybron on his toes in more ways than one. But as Rio continues to chip away the frozen wall Sybron has around his heart and life, Sybron begins to realize that maybe there really is more to both Rio and himself than meets the eye.

Hate to Love You is a story of Sybron’s journey of self-awareness that I highly enjoyed. Though he is a likeable man, his pessimism often overtook any kind of good things or happiness he might have achieved. I liked how he became aware of some of his unhappy faults as he began to work at making his life a more optimistic one to have. He and Rio will be a good match and though this was a satisfying short read, I hated to see it come to an end.

Recommended.

They tell Richie some home truths — that he pushes himself too much, and must learn to share and trust his life with others. With them, specifically. And then, when Richie’s still unconvinced, they decide to let actions speak for their love instead. They’ll help him relax and dish up a caring, sexy, and far more intimate menu.

These creatures are the reason humans build burrows, to hibernate in during the rainy season. But the Grim have begun to detect these underground burrows and root out their inhabitants.

When Adama meets Graf, a traveller from the north, they share a quick sexual encounter before Graf continues on his way. However, the rains have come early this year, and with the threat of the Grim, Graf turns back. They share Adama’s burrow, but even securely tucked away, there are dangers.

Beau, thirty-five, is a gangland enforcer who has gone into hiding rather than following the orders of his boss, Mercer, to harm a rival’s kid. Now, all Beau wants to do is eliminate Mercer before getting out of town.

When Rick, an eighteen-year-old denizen of the streets, witnesses Beau killing one of Mercer’s men who has found him, Beau takes Rick under his wing instead of killing him, as well. He offers Rick a place to stay while he figures out how to put his plan to take Mercer out into action — without ending up dead himself.

Befriending Rick is an act Beau may come to regret. Rick convinces Beau to take him along when he leaves town — thus working his way into Beau’s dangerous life on the run — and perhaps, into his heart, if Beau can come to grips with the fact that Rick is half his age.
