Trama Quando la testimonianza del detective della Omicidi Dexter J. Daley manda il suo partner in prigione per omicidio, le conseguenze – e la frenesia dei media – non si fanno attendere. Ben presto si ritrova senza fidanzato, senza amici e, dopo uno spiacevole incontro in un parcheggio al termine del processo, quasi senza denti.

Invece, suo padre adottivo, un sergente dello squadrone di Difesa, Ricognizione e Intelligence umano e teriano, meglio noto come THIRDS, fa in modo che Dex venga reclutato come agente della Difesa. Dex è determinato a rimettere in sesto la propria vita ed è ansioso di iniziare il nuovo lavoro.

Quando la squadra è chiamata a indagare sull’omicidio di tre attivisti UmanTeriani, diventa ben presto chiaro che Dex dovrà lottare duramente sia per essere accettato dal suo partner e dalla sua squadra, che per riuscire a prendere il killer.


Recent Reads - Whippersnapper by Michael Rupured


Hello all! Welcome to another Recent Reads. This weekend I had the pleasure of reading a pre-release copy of Whippersnapper by Michael Rupured. This story was a real treat for me. Aside the fact this was my first May-December romance, it's also not your typical gay romance. We follow the heartwarming story of three very different, very fascinating characters as they enter each other's lives, drawn to each other as if by fate. Yet despite their differences, they share one thing in common--wanting to find love.

This isn't your typical boy-meets-boy, boy-beds-boy, boy-falls-in-love-with-boy story. We get three POVs: Tellumo's, Oliver's, and Peggy's. Peggy was such a fun character to read. I hadn't expected to love her as much as I did. She made me laugh, pulled at my heart strings, made me teary eyed, and I found myself rooting for her. Her growth as a character was wonderful. Oliver is certainly crotchety, but his rants had me snickering and laughing out loud. The call to the cable company? Oh, that was just perfect. I felt Oliver's pain on that one. I loved getting to know the real Oliver, and there was more than one heartbreaking moment. Tellumo is smart, sweet, and just what Oliver needs.

This book is about love in many forms. The love we find in family, friends, and romantic relationships, along with the bonds we form. How no matter our age, or our differences, love feeds the soul. It's a realistic story of heartache, warm moments, and life's funny little coincidences. I really enjoyed Whippersnapper, even if it did have me craving yeast rolls, cinnamon buns, and a host of other delectable treats.

<3 Happy Reading! rosedivider

Whippersnapper by Michael Rupured eBookWhippersnapper

Tellumo Magnamater is a fresh-out-of-college, first-year English teacher at Salt Lick County High School in Kentucky. He rides the bus to and from work, and every day he walks to the gym behind his small efficiency apartment to exercise. Perhaps because of being raised by two lesbians, Tellumo is attracted to older men. He sets his sights on fifty-something available bachelor Oliver Crumbly. But Tellumo isn’t the only resident interested in Oliver.

Peggy Tucker, a widow approaching her sixtieth birthday, is determined to marry again, and she thinks Oliver is her perfect match. Despite Tellumo and Peggy striking up a friendship at the gym, neither realizes they are interested in the same man. But the joke might be on both of them. Oliver, a retired history teacher, is the original crotchety old man who hates everything and everybody—especially young people.

Last day of the Loving Blitz Blog Tour over at Joyfully Jay!

Loving-Blitz-BT-BannerHello all! The final stop of the Loving Blitz blog tour is over at Joyfully Jay where I'm chatting about what's heading your way in the North Pole City tales series. Who will get their story told next? Plus there's a giveaway!


LovingBlitz200Loving Blitz North Pole City Tales: Book 4 Genre: Gay Fantasy Romance, Holiday Length: Novella Published: Dec, 2015 Publisher: Dreamspinner Press ISBN: 9781623809492

From North Pole City to Winter Wonderland, preparations are underway after a royal announcement sweeps everyone into a frenzy of festivity. At the heart of the celebration are the city’s most beloved elf pilots, the Rein Dears. Once the Big Flight is behind them, the pilots prepare for the royal event. Assigned a special task of finding an Elska rose, Cupid and Blitzen are unaware of how their friendship is about to change forever.

Yet not all that glitters is gold. The sweet, angelic Cupid hides a dark secret, one that threatens to destroy his Rein Dear status, his friends, and the elf who’s captured his heart. It’s up to Blitzen to help Cupid see the light in the darkness and show him that together they can mend broken hearts.

Loving Blitz can be read on its own, but for maximum enjoyment, it's recommended the series be read in order as characters from previous books make appearances and previous events are mentioned.
