ARC Review: Teach Me (Lightning Tales 1) by K.C. Wells

Nick Tremantle has had a rough ten months. His professional life took a nosedive, and then his mom's health took a turn for the worse. In a short space of time, everything changed. So when he spies the young man hitchhiking, Nick pulls over - he needs all the Karma he can lay his hands on. But when the identity of the young man is revealed, it sets in motion a chain of events that unfold quickly, changing Nick's life completely.

Alex Nordmann's life has definitely not gone the way he'd planned. Gone are his dreams of an education and living his life 'his' way. He'd thought the worst was over, until the morning he decided to come out to his parents. It just goes to show, people will surprise you every time. For instance, who could have foreseen that the man who gives him a ride - and an unexpected lifeline - would have been Alex's first crush all those years ago?

Alex has no idea what's coming at him.

Dani's rating:

This story is short and sweet with a bit of smexy stirred in.

Nick used to be Alex's high school teacher. Alex awakened the part of Nick that yearned for another man's touch, but Nick wasn't ready to admit to himself, much less the world, that he was gay, and he was certainly not going to cross that line and hit on a student.

Seven years later, Nick, still very much in the back of the closet with the scarves and umbrellas, picks up Alex on the side of the road.

Alex, who's has had a rough few years and had to drop out of college following a cancer diagnosis, has just been unceremoniously dumped by his parents.

Nick offers Alex (who is in remission) a place to stay, and the two fall into a very domestic routine. As FRIENDS. Even though each of them lusts after the other.

Mr. Nick Tremantle was, after all, the star of Alex's teenage fantasies.

Blood And Ghosts

Straddling the Genres: The Blood Series by Shira Anthony

I love contemporary romance. I love fantasy. I love supernatural. I love historical. I love sci fi. Depending on my mood, I’ll read any subgenre of gay romance. So when I envisioned my vampires, it wasn’t a huge surprise to me that their universe encompassed more than just the supernatural genre. The Blood Series blends supernatural elements with fantasy, and is set in both the present and the past (19th Century France).

Fantasy and supernatural always seemed a natural pairing to me, especially since vampires possess superhuman abilities. The vampires and hunters in the Blood books manipulate elemental energy through their swords. Those swords are the focal point of their powers and are a physical manifestation of their souls. Their swords appear and disappear when they will them to, and they take on traits connected to their wielders.

For the hunters who keep the vampires in check, their abilities mirror the vampires’. Vampires manipulate water and ice, while hunters favor fire. It’s a natural balance. So what happens when vampire and hunter combine?

Meet Adrien Gilbert, the eldest son of the Gilbert hunter clan. When Adrien is mortally wounded trying to rescue his brother from prison, vampire Nicolas Lambert saves his life by giving him the gift of immortality. The gift doesn’t turn Adrien into a vampire, but it imparts Adrien with vampiric abilities. Adrien finds he can manipulate both fire and ice. He also develops a power not seen in more than a thousand years: he can travel through time.

Although Adrien’s time travel ability isn’t a true sci fi ability (think more “wibbly wobbly timey wimey” rather than time machines), it does draw on that subgenre. And Adrien’s immortality allowed me to explore present and past. When Nicolas is kidnapped by another immortal hunter who threatens to destroy the truce between vampires and hunters, Adrien finds himself in the past in his own, teenaged body. It gets even more interesting when Adrien mistakenly changes the past and creates an altered future for himself and Nicolas.

At its heart, the Blood Series is a romance adventure. But I had a lot of fun skirting the various subgenres of romance and letting my imagination lead me and my characters. I’ll leave you with an excerpt from the first book in the series, Blood and Rain, the first chapter where a 100+ year old immortal Adrien is looking back with longing at the past. Don’t forget to read down to the bottom of the post to see how to enter the Blood and Ghosts Blog Tour giveaway contest to win your own Dr. Who “Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey” pendant!



Sequel to Blood and Rain/Blood: Book Two

With vampire Nicolas Lambert’s marriage to a rival clanswoman only weeks away, Adrien Gilbert struggles to come to terms with his defeat at the hands of Verel Pelletier, a vampire hunter and an immortal like himself. Adrien and his former teacher, Roland G√ľnter, begin to explore his newly acquired abilities. But without his soul’s sword, Adrien flounders.
On Nicolas’s wedding day, a two-hundred-year old secret is revealed, sending the wedding party into a blazing battle between hunters and vampires. Once again Adrien finds himself facing Pelletier’s superior strength. Just as Adrien believes all hope of a future with Nicolas is lost, he finally learns his true gift—he can turn back time. But time travel comes with a high cost. To save Nicolas, Adrien must become strong enough to use his power without descending into madness.


SUNSET WOVE fingers of purple and red through bands of clouds and vapor trails that crisscrossed the sky. The scent of exhaust from trucks and cars mingled with the tang of salt from the ocean. People scurried about as they returned from work, trying to finish last-minute errands before dinnertime, all oblivious to the lone figure perched atop the high-rise at the edge of the Miami River.

Adrien Gilbert gazed down at the tiny figures below, vaguely aware of their presence. For more than a century, he had seen generations of humans be born, reach adulthood, start families, grow old, and die as their loved ones watched, helpless to slow time. He had grown numb to the cycle of life—a cycle to which he was immune. He was an immortal, a hunter who had shared the soul of an ancient vampire. His beloved soul.

Bookblast: A Hard Man Is Good To Find by Kiernan Kelly

A Hard Man Is Good To Find


When RJ meets Chaos, a private party stripper, it's gloves (and everything else) off as they butt heads and other body parts on their way to becoming more than just a one-night stand.


The doorbell rang, nearly unheard over the music and laughter in the living room. RJ knew who it was; his gift to his sister had arrived. He made his way to the door to let the stripper inside.

Over six feet of brawny muscle straining at the seams of a tight pseudo-cop uniform waited on the other side of the screen door. Mirrored sunglasses hid his eyes, but not the sharp line of his jaw or the sexy scruff dusting his cheeks.

For the first time in his life, RJ was struck dumb. He stared at the man, letting his eyes travel slowly over the wide chest, narrow waist, and long, long legs. There was a bulge just below the buckle of the black leather belt that was worthy of some very deep contemplation.

The man's voice was as sensuous as liquid velvet. "I'm from Strip-O-Grams. I'm here for Paula's bachelorette party. Is this the right address?" The man cocked one sleek eyebrow, then used one finger to slide his sunglasses down a bit. He peered at RJ from over the rims. Dark brown. His eyes were dark brown, deep and liquid.
