Review - Settling His Dette by Lilo Quie

My rating:

Gabriel seems unable to produce viable eggs, and to the drakes that effectively purchased him, that's all a dette is good for, producing pups. Sacha is the only one of the drakes that seems to care about Gabriel, but even he can't fight it if the current clutch he carries turns out to be blanks. When a doctor tells him that the two eggs are indeed blanks, Gabriel runs away, lays the eggs, disposes of them in a dumpster, and escapes into the wilderness to live among the wild dragons.

Review - The General's Hostage by A. C. Fox

My rating:

The Boa Visk are a race of reptilian warriors who have conquered and enslaved much of the human population of the continent. General Tav is one of the men leading the fight to free the human race. His current target is a walled city where the Boa Visk installed seneschal has refused to surrender. Seneschal Duric doesn't want to fight, but he knows that if he attempts to surrender the city, his Boa Visk minders will simply kill him and install someone else.

My rating:

Review - Wyrmwood by Sam Burns and W.M. Fawkes

My rating:

Declan is not your typical incubus. He lives a largely isolated life in the penthouse he shares with his siblings and doesn't go out to 'hunt' humans. When he can no longer resist the need to 'feed,' he orders a sex worker to satisfy his hunger. Never the same one twice to avoid the inevitable attachment a human would feel for his kind. The one thing that can lure Declan outside is the sea.

My rating:

Many years ago, Eer let the love of their life leave the village to find their calling as a truth-seeker. Eer understood why Kat had to go away but couldn't bring themselves to abandon the community they'd come to call home. It was a decision they'd often regretted.

Review - Inbetweeners by Barbara Elsborg

My rating:

Emmett feels like the only unhappy person in heaven. No amount of encouragement by the happy people is changing that. Down in Hell, Phoenix is also very unhappy, but then, he's supposed to be, and he thinks he knows why he's there. When the two men are selected for a task that will send them back to Earth, it seems like a lucky reprieve for both of them. But, working together may be difficult.

Review - Poisonwood by Sam Burns and W.M. Fawkes

My rating:

Jasper just wants to be loved for real, for who he is rather than what he is. For an incubus, that's a bad thing. The pheromones he produces make him irresistible to most humans, so it's impossible to tell if someone is attracted to him or just under the influence of his spell. Caleb is happy living alone in his somewhat isolated cabin in the woods, but that's not unusual for a bear.

Review - Oren's Right by Blaine D. Arden

My rating:

Forester Veld has been enamored of baker Oren for a long time. But Oren was bonded with Haram, and the healer didn't share, so Veld did his best to remain just friends with both of them. When Haram is killed in an apparent hunting accident, Veld wants to be there for Oren but also needs to respect the customary mourning period. However, that becomes quite difficult when it's clear that the villagers don't understand the unique nature of the relationship that Oren and Haram had.
