A fascinating intro to this new omegaverse world and I have questions!

57608316._SY475_Black Moon by Sam Burns & W.M. Fawkes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So good. This book is the introduction to Sam and Fawkes’ new shifter series and I’m already intrigued by their take on an ABO omegaverse.

Here the setting is urban fantasy, with humans aware of werewolves but not much in the way of knowledge.

Most packs are left to themselves and the wolves are dealing with a mystery ailment which is killing or weakening omegas.

The plot for this book is an interesting one, given it involves an alpha who doesn’t want to be pack leader and an omega who refuses to be subservient.

I loved Linden, he’s as solid as the tree he’s named after. Colby was a delight too, feisty but not obnoxious, he knows his own mind and is willing to stick up for himself.

I’m not going into the plot, it worked perfectly for me, fitting with both men’s characters and for the world building which had gone on.

I’m intrigued and have SO MANY QUESTIONS so I’ll be bugging the authors now until the next one is out 😁

Georgie's Eggcellent Adventure

Blurb

Georgie Peppermint

What’s an elf gotta do to get respect?

When I’m called to Administration, I’m skeptical that the summons is related to any appreciation the Claus’ feel about how hard I work in the Porcelain Department as a detail painter. I believe it’s somehow in retaliation for my misunderstood relationship with Jingle Bell. Much to my surprise—and concern—I’m given a new assignment to become the Ambassador to the Mystical Convention… I’m being sent to the South Pacific to assist the Easter Bunny.

What awaits me isn’t clear, but I’m determined to shine at my task and show all the nay-sayers that Georgie Peppermint is destined for greatness.

Spring. A symbol of rebirth with blooming flowers, trees, and the arrival of babies in every species. It was always my favorite time of the year, but this year it’s bittersweet. I have a lovely life that’s idyllic to everyone who sees it, but all I see when I look around is loss.

For years, I’ve provided the eggs for Peter Cotton, a local import/exporter on Rapa Nui—Easter Island to outsiders—who holds a worldwide food drive every Spring to celebrate the rebirth on the planet. Sadly, I lost my partner last year, and unless I can find some help, I won’t be able to produce nearly enough eggs to help feed the masses.

Enter the oddly beautiful man wearing tourist clothes and a strange little straw hat. He’s nice and hard-working, a friend of Mr. Cotton’s, and has been sent to the island to assist me. I’m not sure how he can help, but with the sweetly cynical man around, I’m a lot less lonely.

People say there’s magic on Easter Island, thanks to the gods and goddesses who watch over its inhabitants, but never did I believe I’d come face-to-face with the manifestation of the mystical forces. And it all starts with the arrival of Georgie Pepper.

This work of fiction is approximately 32,000 words in length and doesn’t end in a cliffhanger. It is part of the Easter series, “Elves After Dawn.”

Excerpt

“Down here,” I heard. I glanced down and saw a furry little bunny, its pink nose wiggling as it took me in. It was a rusty orange-red with large ears that stood at attention, unlike the lop ears I was used to seeing in pictures.

“You… Did you say something?” I asked the rabbit, wondering if I’d had a brain injury. The reindeers could understand us, but they only spoke to Santa when they were alone. I didn’t realize other creatures could converse.

“I could tell you were struggling with the garments, and I was trying to give you a suggestion so you don’t look like an idiot. Are you Georgie Peppermint?” the long-eared rabbit asked.

I was so dumbstruck, I could only nod, still standing there naked as the day I’d been born. Nobody or nothing had mentioned to me that rabbits had the ability of speech. I’d have remembered something like that, I was sure.

“What’s wrong? Rabbit got your tongue?” The rabbit then began to cackle, and I heard a lot of other high-pitched giggles echoing through the forest.

I swallowed. “Would you mind turning your back? I’m a little naked here.”

My rabbit companion hopped around until it was facing another direction, and I pulled on the white briefs that replaced my long johns. They were a bit snug, along with the other clothes being a bit more tailored than I was accustomed to wearing. By that logic, maybe it was necessary to wear the tight undergarments to keep things in their proper place?

I slipped on the tan shorts and then looked at the white shirt, hearing whispers among the bushes. “What is that?” I asked the rabbit.

“Hmm? Oh, put on the white shirt and put the colorful one over the top. She said you’re not good at remembering things,” my companion instructed.

I did as I was told and stepped into the shoes, which were quite comfortable after I’d removed the stockings. “Okay, you can turn around. Who is she?” I asked, referring to his comment about the white shirt.

The rabbit actually rolled his eyes at me. “Come out everyone.”

I leaned forward to pick up my clothes because I’d need them eventually, and when I stood to shake them, I was surrounded by more rabbits than I could count. They were various colors and sizes, but they all had the tall ears like my host, who was the biggest of them all.

“Damn!” I squeaked out in shock.

“Easy there. Some of these are quite young, and if they repeat that in front of Mom and Dad, then I’ll be in trouble. They’re all supposed to be in school, but Holly Claus called and told me you’d been dropped off, so I wanted to personally thank you for agreeing to come, and they wanted to come along.

“I’m Robin, and these are my brothers and sisters. Sound off!” Robin announced.

Blurb

A former king must learn to compromise or lose his mate forever.

Living in a grand castle is awesome. But after a while, Dustin, a guy accustomed to hard physical labor surrounded by co-workers he considers family, can’t handle staying home and nearly isolated without going absolutely insane. Dustin yearns for more freedom, but Casersis restricts him for his safety.

Casersis longs for a soulbond so badly his soul feels like an open wound. But he fears Dustin will refuse him, or worse, run away screaming when he learns what the soulbond entails. To avoid his worries, Casersis takes Dustin on dates. If Dustin is busy having fun, he can’t hound Casersis for why he’s always so sad. Or so Casersis thinks.

When Casersis and Dustin accidentally soulbond, neither of them are prepared. Dustin isn’t fully an elf yet. The soulbond’s ancient magic ravages Dustin’s body, sending him into random fits of excruciating pain. And if they don’t find a way to compromise about Dustin’s freedom, it may just be too late.

This 70,000-word non-shifter omegaverse novel is set in a world where mPreg (male pregnancy) is a fact of life. However, this series does not end with a baby or pregnancy.

Release Blitz Excerpt:

But when I neared the gym, I heard his heavy footfalls as he ran on one of the treadmills. When I entered, his scent surrounded me—clove, clean sweat, and musk. Gods, I wanted to get lost in his scent.

He glanced over and grinned at me. “See something you like?”

I chuckled and leaned against the wall next to the door. “I do. Should I show you how much I like what I see?”

Dustin winked at me as he stopped the treadmill. He wiped down his face with the towel hanging on one of the arms and sauntered toward me with a sure, confident stride. I loved the way he made me feel hunted. And I would always want him to capture me. He already had.

“What’s up?”

Grinning, I stepped closer and stole a sweet kiss that made Dustin sigh and made our bond sing between us. “I thought we might go on a date. Go get into something comfortable that you won’t mind getting dirty. And pack a bag with toiletries, towels, shorts and a t-shirt, and warm things you don’t mind getting filthy.”

“Are you taking me to another gym?” he asked, his eyes narrowed.

I chuckled. “No. But you will be showering after, and you’ll need a nice pair of slacks and a sweater for the last half of our date. You’ll also need very warm clothes that you don’t mind getting filthy. And layers. Add as many as you can while still allowing you to move freely. So, pack a bag, and I’ll meet you at your door in twenty minutes.”

He kissed me, licked into my mouth, and drank down my moan. Then he pulled back and kissed the side of my neck. “Showering there or not, I’d better take one here before we go doing anything. I stink.”

I leaned in and sniffed his neck. His scent wrapped around me like a comforting blanket, and I purred. “I quite like the way you smell after working out.”

He rolled his eyes and fought off a smile. “You’re weird.”

Grinning, I playfully pushed him toward the door. “Go on. Shower quickly.”

He kissed me again and left me feeling lightheaded from the love that flowed through our bond. It was a heady thing, one that made me feel lighter than air as I went to my room, following my trotting mate more sedately since I had already showered.

About the Author

devon-logo-main

If there’s one thing Devon likes most, it’s chaos. She has a chaotic mind, messy house, and throws her characters into every calamitous situation possible. When she isn’t writing, she’s editing or formatting other authors’ works, building websites, creating graphics, reading, playing video games, or watching Fortnite streams on Twitch. She likes to stay busy. So yes. Chaos.

Starting in 2003, Devon turned her writing bug away from poetry and online role play in chat rooms to write her first novel. Yes, it was trash, but the process of learning to edit that piece of garbage spurred her to learn more and more. By 2013, she read an author by the name of Raythe Reign, and somehow, Raythe’s stories finally made all that learning in Devon’s mind click. She wrote her first semi-salable book in two weeks. The next in ten days, and by the beginning of 2014, had seven books written.

Were they all trash? No, but she’s in the process of rewriting them, and has already written one, turning Duty and Sacrifice into three books of a nine-book series, The God Jars Saga. Those three books were followed by more, and the last two books in the series were published in the first quarter of 2019.

Born on a Navy base in Patuxent River, Maryland, Devon has traveled the world, living in Sigonella, Sicily for three years, and visiting many European countries before moving back to the states around the age of seven. She’s lived in Florida for sixteen years, Oklahoma for a year, and Pennsylvania for the rest. She graduated from surgical technology school near the top of her class in 2004, and uses her medical and worldly knowledge to enrich her books whenever possible. Being the worldly woman she is, and having spent most of her teens as a broody goth, Devon has four tattoos, nine piercings, loves techno, electronica, dubstep, and similar music genres, and has an incurable internet addiction.

She builds her own computers, can’t stand Mac-anything unless it’s to format books in Vellum, and purple and black are her favorite colors, though that can change to burgundy and gray depending on the day. Since she has bipolar disorder, PTSD, social anxiety disorder, general anxiety disorder, clinical depression, and has trouble leaving her house due to all that, Devon works full time as an author and editor, and spends as much time as she can talking to other authors and her readers.
