Review - Bound by Love by M.A. Church

My rating:

Prince Hamza and Neo have been mated for many years. They have been peaceful years, as the Tah’Narians have successfully recovered from the attacks which lead them to initiate the harvest. That peace is broken when their planet is attacked by the Ne Reyn, who kill Hamza’s father, King Duran. Struck by grief, Hamza vows vengeance, but will he take it too far and commit the same sins as those that nearly wiped out Tah’Nar?

Review - Something Human by A.J. Demas

My rating:

Adares, the young archon of Tios, seems doomed to die of thirst and starvation on the battlefield outside of the city he only recently was elected ruler of. He’s not seriously hurt but he’s trapped under his horse and the ruins of a seige cart. Just as he is pretty much resigned to his fate, he’s pulled out of his predicament by Rus, a young priest-warrior from the attacking Luth tribe.

Review - Daddy by Nora Phoenix and K.M. Neuhold

My rating:

Joey may be “just” a cameraman for a porn studio, but he’s very good at it and his skills have propelled Ballsy Boys productions to the top spot. Perhaps it’s because as a straight man he doesn’t get distracted and can focus on capturing the scene at its best. Unfortunately, he needs to leave the studio so he can take care of his parents in Las Vegas. Luckily for him, a friend of the studio owner is opening up a new production company in Vegas, and could use a good cameraman.

Review - Dominic's Star by Michael Mandrake

My rating:

This book is part of a multi-author series featuring shifters, gargoyles and male pregnancy. Aside from the theme(s), there’s no connection between the books so it’s not necessary to read them all or read them in order. Dominic is a man on a war-like planet of bear shifters. He wants to advance his military career, but his father’s mistakes are constantly held against him. In what he thinks is a bold move to show he’s not his father’s son, Dominic comes up with the idea to undertake a spy mission to a nearby planet his military is considering trying to take over.
