A Stella Review: Mending the Rift by Chris T. Kat

Standard

Rating:  4,5 out of 5 stars

Mending the RiftIn a future where man’s ability to reproduce is severely compromised, humanity has adapted to survive. Breeders—male and female—have become precious commodities, and they are strictly guarded and subject to limitations.

Luca Walker is a breeder. Though he knows what’s expected of him as the youngest son of the Northern Confederacy’s vice president, he’s held out against the pressures of an arranged marriage because he longs to marry for love, not duty. But he’s been promised to Colonel Liam Smith and there’s little he can do about it, no matter that Luca is secretly in love with his bodyguard, Marcus Gray.

When Luca finds himself pregnant with Marcus’s baby, Smith is furious and vows to take what is his—by force, if necessary. Now Luca must fight for his life and the life of his unborn child… as well as the love of Marcus and the happily ever after he’s always dreamed of.

I am a huge fan of Chris T Kat and when I saw Mending the Rift, a male preg story, a favorite theme of mine, I soon knew I was going to love it. I read it and it was a lovely surprise. I simply adored it. I put it among my favorite ones of this year.

The author did an amazing job at describing this new society where Luca is living in, where only few women and men can become pregnant, after the Earth and its population was almost destroyed  by the Third World War two centuries ago. Science was able to give men the right to be fertile and everyone who is a breeder is forced to procreate.

Luca is one of them, he is part of the official Northern Confederacy Breeding Program that searches for the best genetic match. He’s twenty three years old and needs to accept his fate like all breeders do. He has to marry colonel Liam Smith and give him offsprings. He can’t refuse and choose to marry whoever he wants. But Luca is not interested, he wants someone to love him for who he is and not what he can do, a breeder for a man he doesn’t love.

The most important problem is Luca is already in love with Marcus, his bodyguard. They fell in love with each other one year ago, it was love at first sight but  there really is nothing they can do to stop the union of Luca and Liam. Breeders have no choice and Marcus is just a bodyguard.

I like the author’s style, always clear and clean, easy to read and well done. Especially with a theme and setting like the one of Mending the Rift. I needed details to understand how things worked in this new society and I easily get them. The differences between the Southern Union and the Northern Confederacy. The relationship with Luca’s fathers. And more.

I found Luca to be a bit childish and more than once I wanted to slap him after one of too many useless outburst. Still these defects gave the character a realness necessary for a kind of book set in a (sadly thinkable) not so far future.

There isn’t only one story in this book, I  could know and learn to love not just Luca and Marcus, but Nicholas and Gregory too and another one I don’t want to spoil, the very surprise and unexpected couple.  Things happened till the end when I was already sure I could relax and finally have a baby.

I want to highly recommend Mending the Rift to all the mpreg lovers, you can’t miss it. To me it was a winner and one more proof of the talented Chris T Kat.

The cover art by AngstyG shows a particular scene in the book, it’s tender and well done.

A MelanieM Review: At Your Service by Ariel Tachna

Standard

Rating:  4 stars out of 5

AtYourServiceFSWhen Anthony Mercer walked into Au cœur du terroir, he was looking for good food and a pleasant evening spent with a friend. He never expected to meet—and sleep with—Paul Delescluse, a waiter at the restaurant. After spending a magical week together in Paris, Anthony must return to his life in North Carolina, while Paul remains in France.

Despite the distance and the lack of promises between them—Paul wants sex, not a relationship—Paul and Anthony forge a solid friendship. Then Anthony’s job takes him back to Paris, this time to stay. Paul is thrilled to have him back, but Anthony has a harder choice: be another of Paul’s conquests or fight for the relationship he knows they could have, if only Paul would believe it.

From the moment we enter the story of At Your Service, its immediately clear that France, and its culture is going to be on loving display as a major character in Ariel Tachna’s story.  From the language to the food to the vividly described local venues, the reader feels as connected to the settings as Anthony and Paul due to the deep affection that the author holds for the people and places she is writing about.  I cannot tell you how much that helps to elevate a story as it does here.

The characters are introduced quickly as it needs to be, given the time frame the author is working within.  A week to meed and fall in love.  Possible?  Yes and definitely while in Paris.  God, that city has its own magic.   And Paul and Anthony definitely click over  the food and wine of the restaurant Au cœur du terroir and other places Paul takes Anthony too.  Its a quiet joy watching the men connect with each other even knowing what’s coming and the fear of relationships that returns along with Paul’s ex.

However, Paul’s has far darker issues than a simple fear of relationships and Tachna does a wonderful job  of not glossing over the real pain involved for both parties in the sexual issues here.   It took a story I was expected to be merely a pleasant romance into one with with emotional heft and characters that showed real growth by the end of the story.

If you love your stories with some angst, travel and struggles towards romance, then At Your Service by Ariel Tachna is the story for you.  I absolutely recommend it.

Cover art by L.C. Chase is a delight and speaks towards the location.

A Barb the Zany Old Lady Review: Bound (Guards of Folsom, Book Five) by S.J.D. Peterson

Standard

Rating: 3 stars out of 5

BoundThe story of Tek Cain and Jamie Ryan that began with Roped continues in Bound as their past catches up to them. Tek and Jamie both work at the Guards of Folsom BDSM club in New York City. A few years earlier, they ran from the motorcycle club they had been involved with from birth. Both their fathers were among the founders, and when Tek was born, it was decided he’d someday be the leader. Born on the same day in the same year, the two men grew up together, and in Roped, they discovered what they felt for each other was much more than friendship.

After escaping from the motorcycle club, and the feds that were after them and other members of the club, they started to forge a new life with a new set of friends—the host of characters from the Guards of Folsom series. As this last installment of the series opens, Tek has just found out that Jamie has been kidnapped by Rocco, the leader of their club, and Rocco wants revenge—on both of them.

From the blurb, I assumed that Jamie’s kidnapping would occupy most of the story, however, Tek got help from Tackett, Blake, and Max and was able to free Jamie within the first third of the story. The balance of the story centers on the men getting back to where they were before. They do not live a BDSM lifestyle; they just occasionally do rope scenes, but neither man is able to go back to playing after the traumatic events surrounding the kidnapping. They are also concerned that others may know their new location and come after them—others that include the feds or some former club members—and they worry whether or not they should stay in New York. The problem is that they don’t want to leave their friends—good friends like Blake and Max and others who provide friendship and support throughout the story.

I liked this story, but like Roped, I didn’t highly enjoy it. I think the bottom line is that I couldn’t warm to these characters, even after two books. I do, however, love the other characters in the series, and they all appeared at various times throughout this book, giving readers an opportunity to experience their emotional growth and changes as well. One issue that bugged me was the lack of follow-up to a scene that occurs early in the story between one of the other couples. Without naming names <spoiler>

I’m saddened that the series has ended since it really marks the end of two series: both Whispering Pines Ranch and the Guards of Folsom series. I had no idea when I read Lorcan’s Desire four years ago that I would grow so close to a group of characters, including Ty, the one who was originally cast as a villain. Both are great series, rich in characters that give a wonderful perspective on various forms of the BDSM lifestyle. I recommend it to anyone interested in learning more. This book is a must read for those who have enjoyed this series as it brings closure not only to Tek and Jamie, but to several other couples as well.

Cover art by Paul Richmond is just as beautiful as others in the series with a gray and white photo of the upper torso of a lone man, head bowed and wrists chained. Very poignant and emotional.

Guards of Folsom: Book Five

Tek Cain & Jamie Ryan work at the Guards of Folsom BDSM club. After two years on the run from their old motorcycle club and the Feds, Tek & Jamie are finally able to relax and enjoy their new life in New York City. But the past won’t stay buried, and when the MC resurfaces, it’s Jamie who pays the price. Tek and the rest of the members at the Guards of Folsom must work together to get back one of their own.

In this, the final installment in the Guards of Folsom series, everyone must come together, bound as one in their quest to find Jamie and bring him home once and for all.

From the Author…

Wow, what a wild ride this series has been. It all began with the Whispering Pines series and Ty’s lack of a Happily Ever After. I couldn’t have known when I decided to write Riveted (a free read for Ty & Blake) that it would lead to yet another series, but I’m so glad it did. I fell in love with the scatter brained Micah, wept for Mason, and cheered for Aiden. Tek & Jamie? What can I say, other than, I lurve them so hard. Thank you to all those who took this journey with me. I hope it was as rewarding to read as it was for me to write.

~Hugs~

Exclusive Excerpt

A man Tek didn’t recognize rushed into the club dressed all in black, but it wasn’t the black attire that normally was seen within the walls of the Guards of Folsom. This guy was medium in stature, head shaved, and he looked more like a member of a tactical unit, right down to the weapons on his belt, than any kind of player. He spotted Blake standing near the bar talking to Ty and made a beeline for him. So did Tek.

“Sir, we’ve got the intel you requested.”

Definitely military or law enforcement, but the realization didn’t cause Tek a shred of nervousness. “Where are they?” he demanded.

Lawman raked his eyes up and down Tek, sizing him up, no doubt.

“It’s okay, Nick,” Blake said and pointed toward Tek. “This is Tek Cain. It’s his partner that’s gone missing.”

“Sorry to hear that,” Nick acknowledged with a nod. He then pulled out a small notebook from his pocket. “They’re on the fourth floor, apartment 4012. I got a positive ID on one Rocco Lundy. There is one other male subject with—”

“Was it Cole?” Tek asked, the surge of anticipation tingling down his spine.

“The subject was not identified. Caucasian male, five feet eleven inches, approximately one hundred eighty pounds, dark hair and beard, and has sleeve tattoos, which include a skull and crossbones, dice, and the Tasmanian Devil.”

“That’s Cole,” Tek responded with complete assuredness. He’d been about eight, maybe nine, when Cole had gotten Taz on his arm. It was the first time he’d watched someone get inked. Fuck, Jamie had been there too. Tek spun and headed for the door.

“Hey, where the hell you going?” Blake called out.

“I’m going to get Jamie,” he responded without turning around or slowing down.

At the door, his arm was grabbed, halting his movements. “What the hell, man?” he asked when he turned to face Blake. Tek jerked his arm free. “This isn’t open for discussion.”

“I’m not asking you not to go, I’m asking you to wait one second and think about the plan.”

“I know about the fucking plan, I came up with it,” Tek snapped in irritation.

“You came up with a new one you didn’t share with the rest of us? Because the last time we talked, there was no mention of you rushing over there alone with guns blazing.”

“Yeah, plans change. I’m not leaving him there a second longer.”

“I agree with Tek,” Ty offered. “I know I wouldn’t be able to wait. Plus there is more of us than there are of them.”

“Not helping, Ty,” Blake huffed.

“Sir, if I can interrupt here,” Nick interjected. “You won’t be going through the front door without announcing yourself. There is a security guard on duty. I suggest taking the service elevator they’re using to take building supplies to the apartments being renovated. It’s how I obtained access.”

“See there, Tek, those are the kind of details we need first.” Blake nodded to the bar. “Let’s go work out the minute details, find out what else Nick discovered, and then we will go get Jamie, okay?”

Tek once again found himself hesitating when everything in his body screamed to run out that fucking door, consequences be damned, and get Jamie the hell away from Rocco. It nearly overwhelmed him, his body shaking with the need to act.

Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words is happy to have Ariel Tachna here today to talk about her latest novel and talk a bit about her writing. Welcome, Ariel.  Congratulations on  At Your Service!

******

Thank you, Melanie, for hosting me today, and thanks to all your followers for taking the time to read this. In appreciation, I’ll be giving away one copy of At Your Service to someone who comments.

1. Where do you normally draw your inspiration for a book from?  A memory, a myth, a place or journey, or something far more personal?

Book ideas can come from anywhere. Sometimes it’s a dream (Partnership in Blood). Sometimes it’s an overheard snippet of Dance Off coverAllianceinBloodFSconversation (Dance Off). Sometimes it’s a situation I see or read about (Fallout). It might be a line from a book (The Matelot) or a movie (Under the Skin) or a song (The Inventor’s Companion), or a relationship dynamic I want to explore outside the context of that book or movie. I’ve had book ideas come from comments friends (Inherit the Sky) or readers (Cherish the Land) have made. They’ve come from places I’ve visited (Seducing C.C.), journeys I’ve taken (The Path), and people I’ve met (At Your Service). Sometimes it’s a personal experience (Home for Chirappu). In short, the inspiration comes from life. It’s up to me to be open to the world around me and to see everything as a potential source of creativity.HomeforChirappuFS

2.  Are you a planner or a pantzer when writing a story? And why?

Definitely a pantzer. The only time I’ve successfully planned books prior to writing them is when I’m working with Nicki, and even then, those plans are open for discussion as we write. I go into a story with a set of characters, a conflict (although sometimes I discover as I’m writing that the conflict I envisioned is not the real one), and an ending (happily ever after). I used to try to make more detailed outlines, but I discovered that when I do that, my stories either feel flat or I can’t finish them because the characters rebel against my preconceived notions of who they are and refuse to cooperate until I let them tell their own stories. Ultimately everyone is happier if I just let them have their way.

3.  Contemporary, supernatural, fantasy, or science fiction narratives or something else?  Does any genre draw you more than another when writing it or reading it and why does it do so?

I’ve written in pretty much every genre out there at one time or another. Except humor. I don’t do humor. As a reader, I’m most drawn to fantasy because with fantasy (or science fiction), the writer can do away with a lot of the societal norms that irk me. In fantasy, you can have a matriarchal society or an egalitarian one or one where dragons partner with humans or one where interspace travel is a question of finding someone with enough psychic ability to teleport you across the universe. You can have magic and science and any combination of aliens and cultures and languages and races. The limits of the writer’s imagination are the only limits out there. That said, doing it well is not an easy thing. There’s a lot of mediocre fantasy out there. There’s a lot of knock-off fantasy as well. I remember taking my kids to see a children’s fantasy movie a few years ago and spending the entire movie thinking, “And that’s Aragorn. And those are the Orcs. And there you have the Rohirrim.” It was Lord of the Rings all over again with names and faces changed but no real originality. Now, we can’t all be Tolkien (don’t I wish I could be as brilliant as him), but it’s easy to fall into borrowing ideas here and there instead of starting truly from scratch.

4.  If you had a character you’ve written you would write differently now at this time in your writing career, who would it be and why?

I’m sure I have many characters who would be different if I started their story now rather than when I started them, but each book I’ve written is very much a product of who I was as a person and a writer at the time it was written. Even when I’ve had the opportunity to do second editions of books, I’ve chosen not to make a lot of changes in those characters, because whoever they might be if I started telling the same story now, that’s not who they are because I’m not telling that story now. I told it then in the best way I could and as true to those characters as I could. Have I progressed as a writer? Of course I have. Would the text have fewer POV changes or invalid simultaneous actions or epithets or other mistakes I’ve learned not to make if I wrote it now? Possibly. Would that make the characters in any way better? I don’t think so, because my growth as a writer is technical more than it is creative. I don’t create better characters now than I did ten years ago. Different characters, no doubt, but not better, and to try to change them is to deny who they were and who I was then.

5.  Can an author have favorites among their characters and do you have them?

It’s a bit like children or students, if you’re a teacher—you’re not supposed to have favorites, but you kind of do anyway. And yes, I have them. Caine and Macklin, Orlando and Alain, and Jean and Raymond are probably my three favorites, although then I start thinking, “what about Christian and Teo?” “But I love Leandre and Perrin.” “Oh, I can’t forget about Frank and Daniel.” So yes, I have my favorites, but I also love them all.

6.  If you were to be stranded on a small demi-planet, island, or god forbid LaGuardia in a snow storm, what books would you take to read or authors on your comfort list?

That’s sort of a loaded question because I have different books for different kinds of comfort, but they would have in include The Lord of the Rings, the Sunrunner series by Melanie Rawn, the first six (at least) of the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey, Cursed and Betrayed by Rhianne Aile, and Change of Heart by Mary Calmes. That would cover most eventualities. 😉

7.  How early in your life did you begin writing?

I was twelve when I started writing. By the time I finished high school, I had five completed novels written. I’m pretty sure no one would want to read them now. They were very clearly written by a middle or high school student, but they were good practice for the art of pacing, dialogue, character creation, and more.

8.  Were you an early reader or were you read to and what childhood books had an impact on you as a child that you remember to this day and why?

I can’t ever remember not reading. I know my mother read to me because I know my mother, but I can’t ever remember not reading along. I think the childhood book that had the most impact on me was the Boxcar Children series by Gertrude Chandler Warren. I read and reread those books so many times that in second grade, I have a vivid memory of recounting the entire first book to a classmate at the end of a field trip. And I don’t mean a two-sentence summary. A little bit later, more late elementary, early middle school, it was the Dark Is Rising series by Susan Cooper. Everyone talks about Harry Potter, but Will Stanton would totally take Harry to school. (Sorry to all the Potter fans out there, but read the books before you come after me. You’ll see I’m totally right.) Susan Cooper introduced me to two of my enduring loves with those books: King Arthur and fantasy.

9.  If you were writing your life as a romance novel, what would the title be?

I’m SO bad at titles. I’m not sure you want to ask me that question. I can honestly say I have come up with the titles for a total of four of my books. For all the others, I had to throw myself on the mercy of my friends and beta readers.

About the Author

ariel bio pic

When Ariel Tachna was twelve years old, she discovered two things: the French language and romance novels. Those two loves have defined her ever since. By the time she finished high school, she’d written four novels, none of which anyone would want to read now, featuring a young woman who was—you guessed it—bilingual. That girl was everything Ariel wanted to be at age twelve and wasn’t.

She now lives on the outskirts of Houston with her husband (who also speaks French), her kids (who understand French even when they’re too lazy to speak it back), and their two dogs (who steadfastly refuse to answer any French commands).

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Chris T. Kat, author of Mending the Rift. Hi Chris, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.

  • Was there a basis for your story? A previous experience or something else?

Hmm, a basis? Only in so far as I drew on the experiences of my own pregnancies and the difficulties that went along with them. There’s also the fact Luca wants something (Marcus and the freedom to be his own man) he doesn’t think he can have. I think most people can relate to that desire.

  • What skills do you think a writer needs?

For me, the most important skill is to evoke emotional reactions from the reader. Sometimes readers hate a book, but that still means they’ve had a pretty strong reaction to the story and emotional impact. I also strive to find a balance between realism, love, and humor.

  • What for you is the perfect book hero?

Someone who isn’t perfect, but is aware of that fact. Someone who goes through life with a positive attitude, even if not everything is sunshine and roses. That’s someone I can connect to, and a reason for me to dive deep into a story.

  • Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

My main challenge is to get better at writing in the sense of grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, etc. English is only my second language, so it’s sometimes a challenge to find the right words, or to get rid of repetitions.

  • Tell us about your favorite childhood book.

I’m not sure I had a single favorite childhood book. I’ve loved and re-read a lot of books during my childhood. We didn’t have much money, so I always cherished the books I had. My favorite books were written by Enid Blyton, and I’ve always enjoyed reading fairy tales, especially the Grimm fairy tales.

Excerpt

Excerpt from Chapter Two:

Marcus rappelled off and stepped onto the ground with a crunch of his boots. Pointing at the opening with the askew ladder, he asked, “Don’t tell me you seriously considered climbing down this way.”

Luca shrugged. “I’d have preferred spontaneous levitation, but it didn’t happen.”

He yelped when Marcus put an arm around his torso and lifted him to his feet, as if he weighed nothing. “Hey!”

Marcus silenced him with a glare, and Luca gritted his teeth while Marcus thumped dust off his clothes. “Your father is livid.”

Luca swallowed. He’d expected worried, maybe a bit mad, but livid? His father never got furious at him. Not for long, anyway. Being the baby of the family had its perks. “Why?”

Why? Seriously, Luca, you have to ask why?” Marcus patted Luca’s behind more firmly than was strictly necessary.

Luca shifted, trying to get away from Marcus’s arm. When that didn’t help, he slapped Marcus’s hands away and stepped aside. He couldn’t think when he was so close to Marcus—when the man touched him, he sent shivers up and down his spine. He ignored the glower Marcus directed at him. “Yes, seriously. He knows I don’t want to marry Smith. I don’t want anything to do with all that shit. I want to decide what I’m going to do with my life.”

Marcus shook his head. “Smith is a good man. My brother Kyle worked for him. He said he always treated his people well. If you want I could try to get Kyle on the phone so you can talk to him. That is, if I can get a hold on him. Trust me, you’ll be in good hands.”

“You don’t get it! I don’t want to be in good hands!”

“No?” Marcus raised an eyebrow.

Luca huffed, a small smile forming on his lips. “Well, yes, of course I want to be in good hands. But I want someone to love me, and not just for my ability to become pregnant. I want… you.”

Luca’s heart thundered in his rib cage. There, he’d said it. The ball was in Marcus’s court. Sure, it had only been one night, and Marcus’s reaction afterward hadn’t been promising, but maybe he’d just been scared? Maybe he feared to lose his job? Nonetheless, there was more going on between them, and they both knew it. That one night had just been the last logical step. Luca regretted nothing.

For a moment Marcus seemed startled, and there was a softness in his eyes that was solely reserved for Luca. The softness vanished too quickly for Luca’s liking.

Instead, Luca was greeted with Marcus’s usual, scrutinizing gaze. “You don’t want me, and you better never mention this again. It was a mistake. Now get it out of your head and be a good boy.”
