Review - Thrown to the Lions: The Complete Series by Kim Dare
In a modern English town, there's a pride of werelions, all men and all gay. Human men from the town can volunteer to be literally thrown to the lions for a night sexual escapades. Some do it for money, some for the thrill, others are just curious about what goes on. Most of the men will return from their encounter and resume their lives, but for just a few their lives will be changed forever.
Review - Hard at Work
Jake and his partner Danny both work at the same company, where Jake is having a hard day, literally as well as figuratively. It seems that his generally shy submissive Danny is sending him increasingly pornographic pictures of himself. When Jake manages to corner Danny and pull him into a storeroom to demand an explanation, he gets that and a whole lot more. “Hard at Work” is a well-crafted erotic short story.
Review - Virgin Territory
The blurb for this short novelette sets it up rather nicely: Danny may be a virgin, but that’s not all he is… When a fellow dom points Aaron in the direction of the new guy visiting in their local leather bar, there are a lot of things that draw him to Danny. One of those things is the rumor that Danny is a virgin in terms of leather, guy-on-guy action, and even in so far as his experience with girls.
Review - Magpie
Everet (a raven) is the security chief for the nest of avians introduced in Duck. As this sequel opens, he has been called to collect Kane, a magpie, from the human nightclub where he’s fallen fowl (if you’ll pardon the expression) of the management. Magpies are know for their inability to resist the allure of shiny objects, and it seems that despite his talent for seducing and pleasuring men, Kane has stolen too much, too often, from the wrong people.
Review - The Mark of an Alpha
Bennett enjoys pleasing his master, Marsdon, although he doesn’t know that’s his name. He doesn’t even know what the man looks like. They’ve been playing together, exclusively, in the BDSM club for months, and the one thing Bennett won’t do is reveal his full face. He has always been blindfolded or hooded before meeting Marsdon. He also wears cologne to mask his wolf scent. “The Mark of an Alpha” opens on their last night together in the club.
Review - All the Gear, No Idea
Theo is a young man looking for a little fantasy fulfillment on Valentines Day. He’s had dreams about the BDSM scene, but this is the first time he’s entered the club to act on them. He has all the gear, and no idea what he’s getting into. McCormack is an experienced dom who apparently has been without his own sub for quite some time. On Valentine’s Day, McCormack receives a message from the club owner’s sub, Bret, that the owner wants McCormack to ‘break in’ a new sub - Theo.

I probably wouldn’t have picked this book up on my own, but it was so highly recommended by several people I follow on Twitter that I decided to give it a try, and I’m very happy I did. It’s a lovely story, told in full. So many books I’ve read lately have been under-developed, but “Duck!” is very well fleshed out, and written in a very easy to read style that makes it a real page-turned (although, since I no longer read dead trees, I guess that makes it a “thumb-tapper”).
