He wrapped his other hand around my neck and caressed my jaw with his thumb. The warm of his touch spread through me. I was right where I’d always wanted to be. His smile was slow, spreading across his face like dripping honey. “You’re the destiny I’ve been chasing all my life, Nash.”
Megan Erickson introduced us to her world composed of werewolves, shifters, and zombie werewolves in Daring Fate, the opening salvo in her Silver Tip Pack series. What wasn't to like in this newly opened realm of this author's imagination? It had an air of familiarity courtesy of wolf shifters, but goodness, how Erickson took it up a notch with her Weres and Noweres! While waiting for the release of the second full-length novel in the series, she treated her loyal readers to an exclusive look at the relationship of two other supporting characters in that series starter, and we gobbled that stuff up like, well, bacon (becau…

Peepshow (London Lads #4) by Clare London Release Date: July 26, 2017 Dreamspinner Press
About Peepshow Ever wanted to spy secretly on other people’s lives?
Ken doesn’t have a choice: his student summer job is manning the CCTV screens for the new central London shopping mall. But instead of spotting criminals or vandals, he becomes fascinated by a cute waiter from the local bistro who sneaks out to the backyard for his break—and plays sexy to the camera.
Is he an old friend, or just an anonymous exhibitionist? Should Ken be excited by this naughty peepshow, or will people think he’s a voyeuristic pervert? Poor Ken’s confused and thrilled in turn. It’s like living in one of the movies he’s studying at university. He knows the man can’t see him, yet Ken feels a connection of some kind. It all encourages Ken to continue with his guilt-ridden Waiter Watch.
Ken bears the suspense as long as he can, until a chance meeting and an abortive blind date provide the explanation to the secret assignatio…

Peepshow is the fourth addition to the ongoing London Lads series from Clare London, originally published a few years ago with another publisher and now re-published by way of Dreamspinner Press. This quickie read is about Ken Cooper who spends many of his waking hours keeping an eye on the monitors that are fed by closed-circuit television cameras the security company he works for. It isn't exactly the most stimulating of activities, but Ken is about to get an unexpected shock when he glimpses a waiter for a nearby restaurant giving the camera--him--a wink, later followed by an act of a more...intimate...nature. But Ken can't get a clear look at the waiter, leaving him with no idea who it could be. Is it someone he knows or could it be a complete stranger? Either way, when he does find out who his exhibitionist is, will it mean the end to his regular peepshow or will he g…

Treading Water (Forgotten Soldier #2) by Jessie G. Date Released: July 18, 2017
About Treading Water After devoting eighteen years of his life to the US Navy, Petty Officer First Class Shane Parker is struggling with the very real possibility of becoming unnecessary. If he doesn’t make Chief Petty Officer before his twenty—and it doesn’t seem likely that he will—he’ll be retired from active service and placed on the Fleet Reserve list until his mooring lines are officially cut forever. While it would all be very honorable and ceremonial, he simply wasn’t civilian material.
Before even swearing-in, Julian Brand knew he wasn’t cut out to be a soldier, but refusing wasn’t an option. Generations of Brand man made careers in the military and the expectation of every Brand son was to follow in those prestigious footsteps. Though the prospect of being rolled back dodged his every step, somehow he made it through boot camp and did his time. Six years after not reenlisting, Julian still struggles …

Short but poignant, this quickie read is about Gunnery Sergeant Garrison Douglas and Micah Stills, both twenty-eight. Returning home from his final tour, Garrison takes in the civilian contingent greeting other veterans arriving in the airport. Many have families and friends welcoming them back, but Garrison has no one, having lost members of his family through the years and having ended his relationship with his boyfriend five years ago, knowing all too well that he would come back changed and not wanting Micah to have to live with the waiting and then having a war-ravaged man return instead of the one he saw off to enlistment eight years prior. He told Micah to leave him be, so why does Garrison wish he were there to wel…
