It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Emiel wants to be the dutiful son and make his parents proud. But at what cost to himself? He needs help, and all of his friends are so wrapped up in their own new matings he’s lost. Yet like the selfless man he is, he puts that all to the side when he finds there’s someone else that needs a friend more than he does and helps Aldis’s breathtaking younger brother.

After being tricked by a coven leader, Sealey’s given up the idea of being anything other than a chew toy for a bunch of vampires. But hope just might come in the form of a gorgeous, massive elephant shifter. Will he be able to let Emiel heal his heart, or is his ability to trust anyone destroyed? And how is Emiel going to make Sealey his when he’s still engaged and risks losing everything if he breaks it off?

There comes a point when "being a dutiful child" is wrong. Maybe it's just me but marrying someone your parents approve of (not an arranged marriage) that you don't love...in fact, is of the wrong sex... is wrong. So for much of the book I just wanted to slap Emiel upside the head.

That is a sign of a great character isn't it? The reader's strong reaction?

Then there was the frustration because of the lack of action by those who were supposed to care. I was very happy with the way things ended and glad to see there was another book.

When the vampires come after Lachlan, his father sends him to America, but that still puts Lachlan in a precarious situation… One that he doesn’t want his family dying over to try to save him from. So when the stunning rhino shifter makes him an offer that would keep everyone safe, he has to take it.

Even if it means using himself as the bargaining chip and being mated to an elder.

Percival was already trying to help, but when he sees the youngest McMurray, he figures out how to get the authority he needs over the vampires and snag the most gorgeous man he’s ever met. Now if he could just figure out what Lachlan wants before driving them both crazy.

But when Lachlan realizes it’s not a partner that Percival wants, but an uncomplicated, permanent boy toy, can he deal with that and be what his mate desires?

Oh man. This was the perfect example of what happens when you don't communicate! We've already got the vamps being bad guys (okay, one clan) but there were times I was thinking the Elder that was supposed to be the hero of the story was one of the bad guys!

Love the fight scenes, the meeting with the werewolf Alpha and the happy-ever-after. Please Ms. Flynn? Write another!
