An Enemies to Lovers
Shifter, Vampire True Mates story.

Justice Volkov is the youngest Alpha Zenith to ever lead the wolf shifters. Following in his father’s large paw prints was a responsibility he met head on. Now at age thirty-three, he is alpha of the alphas. As a direct descendant of the original Siberian pack, his wolf is bigger and stronger than Justice, himself is sometimes able to control.

“His wolf howled long and hard but Justice kept it inside. It felt like a bass drum beating against his rib cage. The harsh breaths, angry snarls and the determined pacing inside him was overtaking him. All the while… his mate kept calling.”

Justice takes his role of leadership and his legacy very seriously. He has little time for romance, not to mention a true mate. His packs are his priority. With a human government trying to regulate them, an uprising of rogue shifters, and a violent team of scientists trying to experiment on them, Justice has his hands way too full.

Chadwick ‘Wick’ Bentley is not enthusiastic when the captain of his escort tells him he has to leave his comfortable London home and go back to the States. As the Vampire King, he has no choice but to get his species back in line before they cause anymore chaos. At over two-hundred years old, Wick is no one to trifle with, but his smooth, charismatic manner makes him quite unique, despite the negative reputation vampires have. Wick has had nothing but time up to this point. He doesn’t feel the need to make issues pressing. Nothing is urgent in his life. Until he meets Justice. His beloved.

“Natural enemies can’t be mates.” Or so Justice thought. He knows his skepticism and rejection is hurting his mate, so while he fights their connection, Wick gets help from a source very close to Justice to help him win his beloved’s heart. Wick is a force all on his own, but when he’s blessed with a special gift from the Mother herself, not even Justice’s powerful wolf can prevent the prophesy from being fulfilled.

This story DOES NOT contain/mention MPREG.
No multiple pairings. It does not end on a cliffhanger and has an HEA.

Warning: This book is MM paranormal: If you DO NOT like hot, alpha men shifting into large wolves, or vampires feeding from their mates, this may not be your read.


Kara's Review

Prophesy is book one in a new series, The King & Alpha #1, by the talented AE Via. I just recently discovered her and now I’m going to read everything she writes! This new series is a paranormal, m/m. Two of my favorite things in one. This is more than just a shifter/vampire story. It’s a true mates romance between an Alpha werewolf and a Vampire King. This isn’t a sweet, cuddly romance. It’s hard, dominating, fierce and hot. These two men are sworn enemies, but when you find your True Mate, you can’t deny it. But not everyone is happy about this pairing, especially Justice, the Alpha Zenith, wolf shifter. He isn’t prepared for the attraction and to Wick, a vampire of all things. He can’t walk away from his mate especially after they first bond. It’s emotional, sexy and hot! I loved the push and pull. The dominating and submitting of both men. Justice’s brothers and sisters are hilarious and Wick’s vampire court and a great addition to the secondary characters. Justice is strong, big and very alpha. Wick is refined, sexy as sin and British. Hello, sexy vampire with an accent! Swoon. Overall, I really enjoyed this True Mates story. I laughed, teared up, got angry and had to fan myself! It has the perfect mix of lust, family, loyalty, sexiness, and intrigue. I can’t wait for the next one!


“I didn’t say anything about having sex. I just wanted to see you dripping wet.”

“Then watch me shower.”

“You’re asking for it. Smart mouths lead to sore asses.”


Very few people knew those intimate details about him. That he was different than most vampires. Not only because he was born and not made, but he felt and sensed differently.


A.E. Via has been a best-selling author in the beautiful gay romance genre for four years now, but she’s no stranger to MM. She’s been an avid reader of LGBTQ Romance for over fifteen years before she picked up her laptop to place her own kiss on this genre. She’s also the founder and owner of Via Star Wings Books, having published a couple great new up and coming MM authors.

A.E. has a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Virginia Wesleyan College that she used to start her own paralegal firm after she graduated in 2008. She spent five years preparing and filing bankruptcy petitions for struggling blue collar workers who couldn’t afford to file with a lawyer. It was a rewarding and satisfying career… but another path called to her. Writing.

A.E.’s writing embodies everything from hopelessly romantic to adventure, to scandalous. Stories that often include intriguing edges and twists that take readers to new, thought-provoking depths.

Now that she’s gotten over her 10 books published hump, she’s kind of known now for her hardcore, play rough and love hard, bad boy, alphas. However, she does like to push herself to step out of her comfort zone, exploring with different tropes, but she won’t push herself into a whole other genre. She’s head over heels for MM romance and has tons of more hot stories to tell.

Among the Flames

Kisses and Crimes #3
by Natalie Wrye
Publication Date: July 31, 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon

I thought I left Giovanni DeSalt in the ashes of my old life.
But now he’s back—darker and more desirable. And he’s making me an offer I can’t possibly refuse.


Broke and ousted from her secretary job, Sienna Santiago is in need of a new gig. And fast.

Her biggest issue?

Her new boss is a liar, a possible murderer… and the most mysterious political fixer in the District of Columbia.

Known for his many faces and undisclosed places, Giovanni DeSalt is the dirtiest golden boy of D.C… and Sienna is under his mercy, wrangled in as his new employee.

But when the reemergence of a powerful political corruption rocks their little district, Sienna and Giovanni both need something to believe in amidst their hotbed of lies.

They never guessed it would be each other.

But will their newfound trust be enough to keep their forbidden flame–and, more importantly, themselves–alive?

Among the Flames is the third book in the Kisses and Crimes series. This is a romantic suspense series full of twists and turns, along with kisses and sexiness. You must read the two previous books to fully understand the story. If you have, then you have already met Giovanni and Sienna. Well…welcome to their story! It’s one sexy and wild ride from New York to D.C.
It’s been almost a year since Sienna has laid eyes on Giovanni. And now he was back. Back to turn her world upside down with one proposal he knew she couldn’t resist. That is what he hoped anyway. But Gio is a man that always gets what he wants. Until now. He wants her. In his bed. Between his sheets. He is not one to keep a woman there past sunrise but he knows that once he had one taste of this feisty woman, he wouldn’t want her to leave. That is why she is untouchable. She has to be. He can’t go there. Not with what is on the line. And definitely not in his line of work. International imposter and con.
Why is he here? Yes. She has thought about those crystal blue eyes since he walked away but why now? Is he here to screw with her? Like losing her job at the FBI and working as a waitress in a rundown bar isn’t enough. Now the one man that could bring her to her knees is back. Back with a twisted plan. Sienna didn’t have time for this. She needs to concentrate on her life. One with an FBI badge. But, maybe just maybe this will be her way in. She was so fucked.
Ok. That’s all I can really give you of the story. I will say that you need to pay attention. It’s a crazy ride. One with many masks and twists. And adding in the sexual tension between these two and it’s a party.
I love suspense. I love love. So combining the two is addicting. I enjoy putting the pieces of the puzzle together. Just when I think I have the right pieces, Natalie blows them up. My investigation skills are usually pretty good but she gets me every time. There is always that what the fuck moment while reading one of her books. Especially with this series!
Overall…it’s a suspenseful, sexy, and fun ride! The characters are strong and lovable. The storyline is addicting. She got me good with this one! I am excited about book four. I read the sneak peek and I want it now. So hot.
“No, not shitty drunks. More like shitty people. I’m not blaming this on tequila. Don Julio deserves better than this fuckery.”
He centered me while the world felt as if it were spinning.
“I’m not going to make you say my name, Sienna.” I stroked hard. “I’m going to make you scream it.
