Why I read this book: I enjoyed The Prosper Woods Chronicles.
An old-fashioned britches-ripper with a tooth and claw twist.
Being the prince of all werewolves sucks.
Almost 10 years ago, I did my duty and married a female even though I was desperately in love with an older man. When she died giving birth to a child who could never take the throne, I ran. I left home, shirking my responsibilities, knowing eventually they’d catch up to me. Well, they have. My father now insists I marry a female half my age so I can father a proper heir and secure our rule over the First House for several more generations.
Being chosen to serve the king is a dream come true.
Even though I grew up poor, I worked hard to support my mother. When my mentor chose me to travel to America with the king, I was unbelievably honored to meet his son, the future ruler of all werewolves. I didn’t know how to react when I first laid eyes on Prince Caster, but he cast a spell over me with a single glance, and my life changed forever. I was not only looking at my future king, but the man made just for me. The moment his lips met mine, I knew this story would end horribly…in either heartache or death.
Denying destiny is a terrible idea.
As desperately as I want to ignore my attraction to the common brown wolf, I cannot. The moment I saw the warm glow of his amber eyes, the need to take him into my arms and drag him off to my bed was overwhelming. Alas, I have a duty to perform, and it doesn’t involve the man Mother Nature made only for me.
This story won’t end well…I just know it.
Night of the Blood Red Moon is a paranormal gay romance with an HEA ending.
I very much enjoyed the Prosper Woods Chronicles including the unicorn Sheriff and his Vampire mate. I wasn’t sure what to expect in this spin-off series, but I had high hopes and I wasn’t disappointed.
Caster is set to take the throne of the werewolves, but his father’s not gone yet. The prince married a woman, despite loving a man, and she bore him a son before she died. Caster was told his child was defective – would never shift, would never be normal, would never ascend to the throne. He believed those things and therefore left his son behind in the old country and moved to America where he was free to pursue more, uh, interesting diversions. Chickens come home to roost, though, and soon his father is demanding another marriage – this time to a woman half his age – so he can sire a proper heir. Caster has provided every advantage for his son, but has never visited the boy. This broke my heart. I hoped that might change when Caster brings to boy to America.
Emory is a brown wolf. A mere servant. When he’s tasked with caring for the old king on his trip to America, the younger wolf steps up. He’s worried about the older man’s failing health, and is unstintingly devoted. He’s also fascinated with Prosper Woods and when he goes out for a run – after a shift – he discovers a whole bevy of characters, including the Unicorn King, his Vampire mate, and his son Hannibal. When Emory returns to where the entourage is staying, he encounters Prince Casper. His life changes forever.
I loved how the story evolved. Especially how little Oliver and Hannibal found kindred spirits in each other. I despaired Casper would be forced to marry his child bride, but I knew I’d get my happy ending. So my stress was in vain. In the end, this was a lovely story with more to come.
Quick shout out to John Solo – I enjoy his work and this story was no exception. Great job.
Finally, I have to say how much I enjoyed the letters to the advice columnist Crabby. I looked forward to each new chapter because of it.
