Black Moon Cover

Blurb

An apple a day won’t keep this doctor away.

Linden Grove has always known that he’s not destined to be the next pack alpha. That position belonged to his brother Aspen—but then Aspen left the pack to join the military. When the unthinkable happens and the pack is left rudderless, someone has to step up and take care of it. Can a doctor go from “do no harm” to defending his own with his teeth and claws?

Colt Doherty is used to a certain kind of life. Glittering, picturesque, and . . . empty. As the youngest child of the country’s only werewolf senator, Colt has grown up in the spotlight, and he’s all too used to knot-headed alphas taking credit for the work of others, especially omegas like himself. When his editor sends him to write a story on the Grove pack, though, he finds something completely unexpected: Linden Grove in his unpolished perfection, as shiny and unexpectedly sweet as the apples his pack are known for.

A Grove pack omega has been kidnapped, and someone has to step up. The pack needs Linden to fill his father’s shoes, but no wolf can stand on his own. To save the day, sheltered Colt has to drop the politics and become the action hero he never thought an omega could be.

Black Moon is an 90k word standalone novel featuring one fiery journalist, one doctor with an obsession for hand-knit sweaters, and the sweetest apple pies on the whole eastern seaboard, all bundled up in a non-mPreg A/B/O universe.

Excerpt

“You like that it even works on humans?” I asked through my teeth as Chase led me away, a firm hand between my shoulder blades.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about, Colt.” He smiled at the people we passed, leading me toward a table where a server was ladling out crystal glasses of punch.

I groaned, downing the rest of my champagne and setting the flute aside on the tray of another server. If I was going to turn our direction, I needed the leverage of two free hands. “There’s an open bar. Let’s go to where the wine is.”

“You’ve had enough,” Chase practically growled.

With a roll of my eyes—of my entire head—I looked up at him. “There is no such thing as enough at a gala. Anyway, I meant you like imposing your big bad alpha will on unsuspecting humans, don’t you?”

“Doesn’t work like that.”

Maybe it didn’t. Maybe there was nothing innate about alphas that got them their way outside of a traditional pack setting. Of course, if you went around the world expecting to get everything you wanted, it often worked out that way. It’d been a process of almost three decades, but I was finally getting the hang of it.

And in that spirit, I jerked my head at another nearby waiter, catching his attention just in time to snatch another flute of champagne off his tray. Chase sent me a narrow-eyed glare.

“Don’t worry, big bro,” I said, raising the flute to him before lifting it to my lips. “I’ll take the town car home.”

We all would. There was a requisite Doherty-family post-mortem after any society event.

“I need you to keep your head on straight,” Chase warned once we got far enough away from the main crowd and the bright chandeliers overhead that he thought we were safe to talk. “Dad needs Walsh’s endorsement if he’s going to keep his Senate seat. You can’t go fucking it up.”

That deserved another eye roll if anything ever had. “Walsh is not interested in pissing Dad off. He’s interested in getting laid.”

It was a thing with some humans since werewolves had come out of hiding decades ago. You heard about a big, hot, muscly alpha who’d dominate you in the bedroom, and that sounded like an adventure worth trying.

Destined to be together.

Kay of Isca knows Charles St. John is his fated soul mate, but between battle, duty, and saving the world, staying in the same reality, never mind the same bed, is proving a bit more of a challenge than either stubborn man will admit.

The malicious armies of Morgan le Fay are gathering, and the chance that one of their friends has already been lost to evil is a real possibility too terrifying to contemplate.

Nothing is ever as it seems, but unless Kay can unravel the vile plans centuries in the making, they won’t just die before they get a chance to love.

They’ll die before they get a chance to live.

This Arthurian mythology with a twist is very clever

coverThe Darkest Knight by Victoria Sue

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As an Arthurian mythology nerd, this series from Victoria Sue has been an absolute delight as she’s taken the common legends and given them new twists.

In this latest entry of her Guardians of Camelot series, she gives us Kay’s story. No longer the foster brother of Arthur, instead he’s an unwanted son discarded by a cruel man.

His Tresor (fated mate and the other half of his soul) is Charles, the Knights Hospitaller we met in book two.

But all is not well as Charles has a calling he’s not willing to give up and Kay’s heart is broken just as the threat from Morgan intensifies.

I have much love for Charles as he is a character that I have a vested interest in (see the dedication in book two 😉) so I couldn’t wait to see how this played out.

I was not disappointed. In fact, I was surprised by the very clever twist in the narrative that I only worked out seconds before it happened.

This is a spoiler free review, so I’ll just say this book will take you on a heart-thumping journey into the past, into secrets and lies and right to the centre of evil.

It will have you almost crying with laughter while your heart is being torn in two.

Ultimately, it will give you all the thrills you’d ever want from an urban fantasy paranormal mix and it sets up the final battlefield to be fought over in book four beautifully.

There is one particular scene which I think most readers will miss, but I saw it and I just say “bravo Victoria Sue” because the mythos surrounding this thing is ripe for the reinvention that is the hallmark of the series.

I’m so excited for book four!
