Title: Not a Line of Bull (A Loving Nip: Book Six)

Author: Charlie Richards

Pages/Word Count: 89 Pages

At a Glance: An interesting tale of a shifter that has been sequestered by an alpha who has very strange ideas about how to lead – and his rescue by his beloved.

Blurb: Just a little love bite: The instinct to please your peers should never be stronger than your conscience.

Cassium Jones is closing in on his fourth century mark and over the years has held many roles, from farmer to soldier to vampire enforcer. Now, he’s ready to settle down in moderate relaxation…if working a cattle ranch can be considered relaxing. He loves the wide open spaces, the fresh clean air, and even tending the animals. Handling the maintenance and care for the Angus cows in the northern pastures offers plenty of solitude, and he should have been left pretty much alone. Instead, Cassium stumbles upon an injured Angus bull amongst the livestock, and realizes the bull is not only a shifter, but his beloved, his soul mate. Cassium learns Garth has been driven from his herd for disobeying a controlling alpha, leaving behind two young children. While Cassium is happy to help reunite the bull shifter with his kids, is he ready to take on the role of parent when all he wanted was to retire?

Dividers

Review: Note: Not a Line of Bull is book six in the A Loving Nip series, and while it’s helpful to have read the other stories in the series, this novella can easily be read as a standalone.

We met Cassium Jones in a previous installment of this series, when he becomes the unlikely hero in A Rose for Paul’s Protector and rescues the beloved of his cover master as he is going into “retirement” so that the humans don’t notice how he doesn’t seem to age.

As he’s repairing the fences in the pasture near his cabin, he sees and smells blood and recognizes it as not fully animal. He’s convinced it’s a shifter, and he locates the seriously wounded animal hiding in the herd. But, he knows he’s not a bull only, and he convinces the guy to shift, though he’s so injured that he can’t even remain conscious for the short trip back to Cassium’s cabin.

Cassium is somewhat adept at first aid, so he bandages up his guest as best he can. During bouts of consciousness, Cassium manages to get out of the bull shifter that his name is Garth, and he’s from a herd that is close by, but he’s obviously not in any shape to do much more than talk. It’s pretty apparent, really quickly, that Garth has been injured by his own herd’s enforcers, on orders from the alpha. Also, as Cassium gets to know Garth, he determines that he’s been very isolated from his herd and has some pretty farfetched ideas about not only shifters but other paranormals as well. He’s also very, very young compared to Cassium.

But the real surprise is that Garth has children, and he is extremely worried for them. Cassium explains to Garth a good deal about paranormals and the mate bond, and also confesses that he’s much older that Garth. Cassium decides he definitely needs backup, and contacts the head enforcer for his coven, and also their doctor since he’s still concerned about Garth’s injuries.

Of course, Garth’s herd is not content to just let him go, and once Cassium and his coven know children are involved, there is a concerted effort to make things right for Cassium and Garth.

These two are very sweet, and it was nice to see Cassium change as he realized what his life could be after all his years without his beloved. Garth is a sweet and naïve character who is a good man and a good father, and who knows a good thing when he sees it. :) Another enjoyable addition to this series.

Review: Driving Borscht Batty by Charlie Richards

Title: Driving Borscht Batty

Author: Charlie Richards

Publisher: eXtasy Books

Pages/Word Count: 103 Pages

At a Glance: A cute story of a vampire and a bat (I see what you did there, Charlie ::heh heh::) discovering they are mates, and another adventure rescuing more captive shifters.

Reviewed By: Sadonna

Blurb: 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?

Dividers

Review: We first met Borscht Kustenov in The Vampire’s Geek, number twenty-six in the Wolves of Stone Ridge series. Borscht’s younger brother Tullion is the protagonist in that story, but we meet the whole Kustenov clan when Tullion turns to them for help. We know that Borscht is a good guy who is happy that Tullion has found his beloved – despite him being a human male. Not all of the family is so understanding, however.

In this story, Borscht goes out to confront a disturbance on his property, and he discovers men hunting. He finds a small bat is their intended quarry. He’s overwhelmed with wanting to protect the little guy, and as he returns to his home, he realizes that the bat is a shifter and that he is most likely his mate – his beloved. But Borscht doesn’t even know what kind of a bat he’s found, and his little bat won’t shift.

After trying to communicate with him in English rather than Russian, it appears that the bat is finally understanding him, and he shifts. Turns out he’s an Egyptian fruit bat named Sekani, who has basically spent his whole life in a cage and been the subject of the scientist’s experiments that entire time. His only friends are other shifters who were also captives. Even though he’s obviously a mature bat and human male, he has no concept of many things – like eating with utensils, a refrigerator, a bed, many foods, etc. He doesn’t like many clothes, and he is very nervous around people and Borscht’s family at first. Borscht’s brother and sisters are kind to him, offering to teach him about all the things he missed out on, but mostly he just wants to be with Borscht. He doesn’t understand his desire or his reaction to Borscht either, and has to have sex explained to him.

Borscht is so kind to Sekani, and he doesn’t want to push him in any way. He adores his little bat, and he desperately wants to protect him. Sekani is worried about his friends, who were being moved at the same time he escaped, and so Borscht calls in the Stone Ridge team and we get to see Jared (YAY!) and company come to the rescue. We also get cameos by some of the other Stone Ridge pack, including Raul, Lyle (the monitor lizard shifting human), and Dr. Carmichael. There are some really intense moments as the scientists and hunters try to get to Sekani, but you know if Jared’s on the case, they’ll never win.

Borscht and Sekani are cute together, and there is a lovely little surprise with Sekani’s taste in clothing. Borscht also puts up with no crap from his homophobic brother, and determines that he’ll do whatever is best for his mate. All in all an enjoyable, quick, cute and quirky read about our paranormals; and any story that has any Jared in it is full of win for me!

For fans of this series, this is a fun one.

Review: An Unforgettable Bite by Charlie Richards

Title: An Unforgettable Bite (A Loving Nip: Book Three)

Author: Charlie Richards

Publisher: eXtasy Books

Pages/Word Count: 83 Pages

At a Glance: An Unforgettable Bite is a vampire story that left me underwhelmed and a bit disappointed.

Reviewed By: Lana

Blurb: Nathan Hanson is still working through the recent changes to his life. When he walks away from Diana, his long-time girlfriend, he comes out to his father, Owen. To his surprise, he learns that Owen is gay, too. Unfortunately, Diana doesn’t want to move on. When she continues to call him, Nathan changes his phone number. Next, she starts dropping by his work, so he gives her description to his work’s lot security, asking them to keep her out. Nathan even moves into an apartment on the far side of town, near to where his father now lives, but sometimes he still feels like he’s being watched.

When Nathan finally gets up the courage and accompanies a few friends to a gay bar, he just wants to have a little mindless fun to take his mind off his problems…and maybe, finally act on his desires for another man. There, he meets Lexington Paistro, who is handsome, sexy, and into Nathan. He’s also a vampire. Having learned of paranormals when his father bonded with one, it’s not the biting that Nathan fears. It’s the possessiveness. He’s still trying to extricate himself from a woman who thinks she owns him. Will Lexington behave the same way?

Dividers

Review: An Unforgettable Bite is a vampire story that left me underwhelmed and a bit disappointed. This wasn’t a horrible story, but it could have been much better.

The plot was the usual vampire storyline: A vampire finds his true mate in a club and proceeds to bite him, thus binding them. His human mate knows about the existence of vamps because he’s part of the paranormal clique. He just got out of a controlling relationship with a woman, and is gun shy, but wants to explore his feelings for men. They meet in the club, sparks fly, pants come off, and the vamp can’t help but bite him. This formula should produce a pretty hot read, but here it never takes off. The characters were a bit one dimensional, and though Nathan, the human, was likeable, he wasn’t fully developed. We got very little of his backstory, and some of his interactions with the secondary characters, and Lex, the vamp, were just awkward.

Lex is an enforcer for the vampire council, and the storyline about why he was in town was just hard to understand. I found it to be amateurishly written. As a couple they could have worked, and they did in some scenes, but their dialogue at times was just cheesy, and I was turned off.

Then the crazy girlfriend plotline was just that—crazy—and the resolution was ridiculous, not believable at all. Yes, this is a fantasy, but I wanted to be engrossed in that fantasy and I wasn’t.

An Unforgettable Bite was a subpar effort that could have done more with its characters, storyline, and in the writing department. It could have been more memorable, but it wasn’t.

Review: Tempting the Bear by Charlie Richards

Title: Tempting the Bear (A Paranormal’s Love: Book Twelve)

Author: Charlie Richards

Publisher: eXtasy Books

Pages/Word Count: 108 Pages

At a Glance: Anther gargoyle finds his mate – and we also get to hear about my favorite thing in this series – gargoyle babies!

Reviewed By: Sadonna

Blurb: Into the Paranormal World: Sometimes falling down the rabbit hole involves a rather painful and embarrassing face-plant.

Wren Cleaver only wants to keep his goddaughter safe. Having looked after Penelope since her parents died when she was sixteen, Wren is used to keeping tabs on her. It’s hard for him to remember that she’s an adult. It’s also hard for him to accept that she’s dating a man twice her age, GolrenRabenau. When Wren drops by her home one evening to talk to Penelope about her involvement with Golren—who he discovers is not who he says he is—Wren arrives just in time to see her climb into the man’s SUV. Wanting to know where Golren is taking his goddaughter, Wren follows them to the grounds of the massive Falias Estate, a place, according to town gossip, has been shrouded in mystery for decades. Sneaking onto the grounds, Wren thinks the arboretum will be a safe place to sneak inside so he can learn a bit more about the place’s occupants. Unfortunately, he’s faced with the shock of his life…massive snakes. Watching them transform into humans would cause anyone to faint from shock. Right?

Dividers

Review: Tempting the Bear is book 12.0 in this series, and they are probably best read in order since a lot about gargoyles is explained in previous books. I found this to be one of the most enjoyable books in this series so far. There was humor and drama and my favorite – gargoyle babies !

Wren is the human owner of the local restaurant where a lot of action has taken place in previous books in this series. His goddaughter has taken up with one of the residents of the mysterious Falias estate outside of town. He’s worried about her, so he follows one day when she leaves her house with her boyfriend. Somehow he manages to sneak onto the property and into the arboretum – where he sees two huge snakes transform into humans. Needless to say, this causes quite a shock – so much so that he faints and hits his head. The shifters take him to see Dr. Perseus, the head doctor at the compound, and it turns out that Wren is his mate.

So, if it isn’t enough that now Wren has seen shifters, he also then is exposed to the whole paranormal world, including his gargoyle mate. Perseus only has one form (gargoyle) since he hasn’t mated yet, and his imposing presentation both stuns and arouses Wren. However, at some point he becomes convinced that none of this is real and he’s in some sort of dream or fugue state from being hit on the head.

While Perseus is trying to figure out a way to help his mate to get to know him, Wren is dealing with some annoying stuff at his place of business. He’s being continually harassed by a crooked inspector who wants a payoff in sexual favors. Wren is no prude, but this awful guy is married, and he’s basically conducting a shakedown to get sex in exchange for a clean health code inspection. Definitely not something Wren wants any part of.

Perseus decides to try to woo Wren through food. :) He’s a restaurateur, so probably nobody ever cooks for him. Given how much Perseus likes to eat, he decides the way to the man’s heart might be through his stomach. His surprise is definitely effective, not only for Wren, but there are some unintended surprises from this visit as well.

Wren takes a little while to come around, but frankly, the mate pull is fierce, and he won’t be able to resist for long. He’s been alone for some time and really wants to have a connection with Perseus. He’s impressed with Perseus’s compassion as a doctor, his loyalty and his dedication to his community, and his fierce possessiveness of Wren. They are also very sexually compatible as it turns out!

Besides Perseus’s pursuit of Wren, we also see him taking care of his practice and checking in with parents of a sick young gargoyle baby (my favorite Vaclar- YAY!) and confirming the expectation of another gargoyle baby. :) Honestly, I just love this mPreg storyline with these gargoyles and their mates. So adorable these babies!

All in all, a really fun and quick story that left a smile on my face and has me looking forward to the next installment of this series, to see who will find their mate and who is the next to be having a gargoyle baby.

Review: Paws for Change by Charlie Richards

Title: Paws for Change

Author: Charlie Richards

At a Glance: A rather predictable but enjoyable addition to the Wolves of Stone Ridge series that would have benefitted from some tied up loose ends and a more satisfying finish.

Reviewed By: Sadonna

Blurb: Out of the Cage: Pause…a temporary stop or rest, a cessation of activity because of doubt or uncertainty.

Derek Sommers is fleeing a bad situation, made worse by foolish decisions from years before. He’d given into his father’s demands once and it had cost him a relationship with his brother, Deke. When Derek’s father demands he marry a certain woman, Derek has had enough. He decides to find out if Deke’s partner was telling the truth and travels to Stone Ridge in hopes of repairing ties with his brother. Except, even from states away, Derek’s father doesn’t want to let him go.

Dillan Shoreman travels to Stone Ridge to visit his godson, Edwin. When he nearly takes out a man jay-walking, he discovers the battered human is his mate. Having been alone a long time, Dillan thanks Fate’s oddly timed blessing. Unfortunately, he discovers that convincing his mate they have a future together will be harder than he thinks. Between a manipulative father, a guilt-tripping mother, and a conniving wannabe bride, Dillan’s mate already has plenty on his mind. Can Dillan convince Derek that he can give him the peace, healing, and strength that his heart so desperately needs?

Dividers

Review: This is the latest episode in Charlie Richards’ The Wolves of Stone Ridge series – #28 for anybody who is playing along at home. ;) In this installment, we get to see more of Deke (the mate from #25 ) Sommers’ brother Dillan, and Edwin (the mate from #22) Aldridge’s godfather Derek Shoreman, who also happens to be a puma shifter.

When we last saw Dillan, he had interrupted some of the Stone Ridge pack as they were moving Deke’s things to Colorado, so he at least knows where his brother has relocated. He has had it with his controlling father and decides to try to make amends with Deke, so he takes off. He’s exhausted and not really paying attention by the time he arrives in Stone Ridge, and nearly is run over by a motorcycle. The driver just happens to be Derek, in town visiting his godson. Derek immediately recognizes that Dillan is exhausted and that, more importantly, he is his mate!

Dillan lets Derek take him to the cabin he is renting, and he gets some much needed rest. He can’t figure out why he is so attracted to Derek since he’s never let himself act on any desire for a man before. He used the excuse of studying in law school and working to keep from developing any relationships, and that way he has kept his mind off what he might really desire. He definitely learned his lesson after his parents disowned and threw out Deke when he came out.

Of course, breaking away from his family isn’t easy, and they really pull out all the stops to try to get him to return. Derek, of course, is supportive and tries not to pressure Dillan. There are a few surprises, but disappointingly we are missing the answers to several questions at the end of the story, and I’m hoping a character who was introduced in a rather offhanded way is going to make some sort of an appearance down the road since we’re left hanging about his role, his past and his skills.

We do get to see Jared Templeton (my favorite human mate in the series), but no Carson, :( so it’s a rather boring cameo. We also see Declan (the pack Alpha) but there’s no interaction. Finally, it just felt like the ending was a bit like missing the last step as you descend a staircase. I was thrown a little bit off balance. I hope the next story ties up some of the loose ends and gives us a more satisfying ending.

At a Glance: One of the stronger episodes of this long running series, although I would have liked a more cohesive ending.

Reviewed By: Sadonna

Blurb: Tristan has never been what someone would call a social guy. Like the alligator he shares his spirit with, he prefers being alone. Now, after enduring decades of forced isolation as an animal attraction in a curiosity show, Tristan is even more reclusive than ever. He lives mainly in animal form, swimming in the large pond on the gargoyle’s estate. When he helps kidnap his abuser, Bud Wallice, Tristan decides interrogating the bastard is a great reason to finally interact with others.

Eventually, Bud is reported missing by his wife, and the trail leads to the gargoyle’s estate. Tristan meets Detective Collin DeSoto, who is looking into the disappearance. Tristan immediately recognizes the man as his mate, and while the sex between them is explosive, that’s the only easy thing between them. Collin isn’t out to his incredibly large family, and he doesn’t approve of how Tristan handles Bud. Can the pair resolve their differences, or will Tristan end up returning to his pond…alone?

Dividers

Review: Full disclosure: Charlie Richards’ shifter/paranormal series are my crack. I HAVE to read all of them. This is my 64th book by Charlie. :)

In this installment, one of the recently rescued shifters from the travelling exotic animal show finally gets his hands on the man who was mostly responsible for his captivity. Tristan is an albino alligator who was not only rejected and kicked out by his family, but was for years caged as an animal attraction. Bud Wallice, the owner of the carnival, is now in captivity at the Gargoyle estate where Tristan is staying, and Tristan has been entrusted to interrogate Bud. The Gargoyle clutch and the other paranormals need to find out exactly what it is he knows about the them, and who has been helping him.

In the meantime, it seems Bud’s wife and his smarmy lawyer have shown up in town, claiming Bud is a missing person and the victim of foul play. Local, deeply closeted detective Collin DeSoto catches the case and visits the Gargoyle estate after determining they might have something to do with Bud’s disappearance. He meets Tristan and doesn’t understand his attraction until he hears the word mate.

While the story follows along in a similar vein as many of the stories in this series, I really liked that the author threw in some surprising twists. Collin’s family and his relationship with them were attention-grabbing and fascinating to watch. There is definitely a reason Collin is so far in the closet. Also, the mystery with Bud and his cohorts was a bit more complex than some of the other plot devices that keep the mates separated in some of these books.

I really liked Collin and Tristan’s interplay. My only disappointment was in the ending, which seemed a little bit rushed and abrupt. For fans of this series, I think you’ll enjoy seeing these two characters and their road to happiness, and I hope we get to see more of some of Collin’s family.

Reviewed By: Jennifer

Blurb:Two men. One will do anything for family. One will discover the true meaning of responsibility.

Ross McCord will do anything to fulfill his mother’s dying wish…protect family above all else. He does his best, keeping their sheep herd healthy and strong as he watches over his crippled father, Achaius, and his pretty but dim sister, Skena. When Chieftain Goth notices Skena’s beauty, he demands to use her as a bride-price to complete an alliance with a neighboring clan. Attempting to keep his sister from being heartbroken, Ross embarks on a dangerous mission to earn a boon from Chieftain Goth. He heads north in search of a secret way for his chieftain’s warriors to attack the clan who took in Goth’s son, Ian. Much to Ross’s distress, he’s captured by the brawny redhead, Ziethman. He expects to be killed for trespassing, but Ziethman offers a much more pleasurable form of…interrogation. Experiencing sensations he’s never imagined, Ross finds himself craving the other man’s touch. When Ross learns that Ziethman is more than a man, and is in fact a dragon, can he accept the male’s differences and the help he offers, or will it be too much, sending him running back to his clan to fulfill his mission?

Dividers

Review: Full disclosure: I did not read the first four books in this series. However, that did not impact my enjoyment or understanding of this book. Even though the books are part of the same world, they clearly follow other characters, who are only mentioned in this novel. It was not a hindrance to have no background of Ross and Ziethman’s world. Chieftain Goth is present, and his son Ian is mentioned, but the author does a good job of relating past events to the reader so it’s not necessary to read the books in order.

As for the story itself, I really did enjoy it. It’s not about shifters, per se, but dragons with the ability to turn into humans. Ross goes on a mission to protect his sister, Skena, from being married off for their clan’s benefit, and runs into the territory of the dragons. And, of course, he meets Ziethman right away.

The dialogue is heavily accented with a Scottish brogue, at least on Ross’s side, but I didn’t find it distracting. For me, the most distracting part was Ziethman’s penchant for calling Ross the “sexy human asda.” I’m not sure why, but the use of the word sexy just didn’t mesh well with the rest of the dialect chosen.

The book, I found, was also far too short. I would have enjoyed a lot more. I was expecting Chieftain Goth to show up at the very end, but he did not. If the book had been another thirty pages longer, it would have been that much stronger. I want to know how everything works out for Ross, Ziethman, and Ross’s family as they try to integrate into dragon lands.

That said, would I go back and read the first four book in the series? Yes. Would I read a sequel to this? Absolutely. My hope is that all of these smaller books are leading up to serious battle between the dragons and Goth.

At a Glance: A sweet, low angst story

Blurb: Detective Ryan Straton is known as the happy-go-lucky playboy of the precinct, the consummate bachelor of the department. At a Halloween party, he enjoys admiring the eye-candy, including a lovely lady–who he learns is Doctor Morgan Pruitt–dressed as Marilyn Monroe. When Ryan stumbles across Morgan getting backed into a corner by a trio of men, he plays hero and rescues her. He’s shocked to be offered a blowjob in thanks, but quickly gets on board when the woman proves just how adept she is with her hands…and her mouth.

When the deed is done, Ryan discovers that Morgan isn’t a woman, and he’s just received the best blowjob of his life from a man. As he’s done with every woman he’s bedded for almost a decade, he plans to move on and forget about Morgan

Dividers

Review: Ryan Straton comes off as a bit of a jerk when it comes to women, and I’m not sure I liked him. I didn’t really care he’d been hurt by a woman in the past. You just don’t treat women as throw-aways after you’ve had your fun. But that becomes an irony, then, when Ryan rescues Marilyn from a homophobic attack. Even after Ryan found out that Marilyn was a man named Morgan, he couldn’t stop obsessing over that blowjob! Oh, how the mighty do fall… Ryan’s love ‘em and leave ‘em strategy doesn’t quite work out when it comes to Morgan. In fact, it’s the one time that Ryan finds himself coming back for more, when he later seeks out Dr. Morgan Pruitt and proposes that he, Ryan, is bi-curious and would like to find out more about what it’s like to be with a man.

The romance part of Lifting Techniques is so sweet, and I loved how Ryan succumbed to Morgan’s charms as they got to know each other. I couldn’t help but fall a little in love with Morgan too. He was just so sweet! The only thing I would say against this book is the part with the serial killer was resolved too quickly and could have been better developed.

I would highly recommend Lifting Techniques to readers who love to watch two people dance to the tune of falling in love without a whole lot of angst to drive you nuts.
