Blurb:

Stealing a unicorn, the most potent source of magic in the world, was not part of Dante’s plan. But neither was falling in love.

As a poor farmer, Dante can’t afford the cures that would bring his brother back from the death-like sleep that has claimed him, but when his sister finds a healer in town, one who promises to help, his family is overjoyed. Naturally cautious, Dante hopes they don’t put too much faith in a stranger, but he is unwilling to turn his back on the chance for his brother to be well again either.
The healer requires very little from them, a family heirloom and as much nightshade as Dante can carry. Though he questions why a healer would need such a poisonous plant, he is far more concerned with saving his brother. When he brings them to the healer’s home, he finds a black unicorn that has been enslaved by the healer.
Aleon is distrustful of people, and with good reason. As the dark mage’s captive, he has endured only torture and pain since he was a child. The mage uses shavings of his horn to heal others, and it is a brutal experience for Aleon. When Dante offers him a way of escape, Aleon is wary, but trusting someone new, or staying a slave until he is killed, isn’t a choice he can afford to let slip away.
With Dante, Aleon begins to understand that he is safe, and possibly even loved, but when the dark mage realizes his unicorn has been stolen, their lives are ripped apart in his rage to get Aleon back. Staying together, and keeping his family safe, is all Dante wants, but it might be a hopeless dream when a world of magic and darkness rises up against him and he’s forced to make a choice between the man he loves and the family he wants to save.

Description: Werewolves are real. Marius enjoys the irony that everyone calls him a dog whisperer, not just because he’s a werewolf, but for his work at the local animal shelter. He has a unique talent for pairing families with their perfect pets upon first meeting them. But he’s still looking for acceptance and a forever family of his own. Then Jack comes into the rescue looking for a big, mean dog. To prevent Jack from making the wrong choice, Marius convinces him to adopt a needy spaniel mix instead. But when Marius learns Jack is tormented by horrible memories while at his apartment, he opens his home to the sweet, scared man. As their relationship grows, Jack feels comfortable telling Marius about the horrors he suffered. Marius hopes his steady presence, protection, and love can help Jack reclaim the pieces of himself broken on that terrible night.

Review: Marius is a werewolf who co-owns a pet rescue shelter with tough-as-nails Clare. Jack is a shell of a man who is trying to get his life back together. They meet when Jack comes in to the rescue shelter in hopes of finding a guard dog for his apartment. Jack ends up adopting a shy and frightened dog named Missy. Not the guard dog he was looking for but one that will aid him in mending. I loved reading the parallel story of Missy getting better with Jack while Jack is recovering with Marius. Each needing hope, gaining strength, and deserving of love.

From the beginning of the story I knew that this book was going to be dark. This book looks at a very tough subject and one of the hardest topics to write about, rape. This story is about a man who can’t find support in a small town and still raw from a recent attack. I could tell that the author reached into forbidden places to come up with such a broken character like Jack. But that is why I really liked this book, the characters are not afraid to look into the worst parts of themselves.

Caitlin Ricci isn’t afraid to take her characters into the shadows and face their fears. She writes not only amazing main characters but builds up side characters that don’t fall into typical stereotypes. My favorite was Seth, but I always have a place in my heart for talkative, geeky characters like him. I also loved Clare with her stubborn nature and big heart. Caitlin Ricci’s writing improves with every book I read and I cannot wait to see what story she comes out with next.

I found the ending came too fast, I wanted to spend more time in the world of Marius and Jack, watch them grow even more. This is why I can’t wait to read the rest of the series not only in hopes to see if Seth, Peter, or Jeremy end up finding the loves of their lives but also to see how Jack is growing and healing with the help of his loving werewolf.

If you like darker stories with two men working to become stronger with healing and a little revenge, I recommend this book for you.


Rainbow Reward Submission!

Lost & Found AnthologyI can’t believe that the Lost & Found Anthology I participated in is actually got accepted as a submission for the Rainbow Rewards! This was such an amazing cause and I’m so proud of how the Anthology has taken off! For more information visit Reviews & Ramblings. Thank you everyone for your support! If you haven’t heard of the anthology before, here is the premise:

Some statistics say that 40% of all homeless teens are GLBT. They’re on the streets after their families have thrown them away, told them that they don’t matter, that they’re not normal. Well, guess what? Those families are wrong. This collection of stories by ten talented authors spans the spectrum (historical, paranormal, transgender, cutter, gay) to show that – it’s okay, there are people out there that care, and these teens are perfect just the way they are.

All royalties from this anthology are being donated to Lost-n-Found Youth in Atlanta, Georgia. A wonderful charity working with these teens, helping them find their new place and get on their feet.
