Kurzbeschreibung

Diagnosis: Wolf by Poppy Dennison

Thanks to his good-for-nothing brother, Andrew Hughes is up to his eyeballs in debt and needs a job fast. When a nursing position opens up in Myerson, Arizona, Andrew has no choice but to take it, despite a warning about how difficult a patient Caleb DiMartino can be. Andrew can deal with a little trouble—but Caleb’s strange family, the armed guards, and the unknown cause of Caleb’s mysterious illness may be beyond his skill set.

Landslide by Mary Calmes

For three years, paranormal courier Frank Corrigan has been working for incubus demon Cael Berith. Cael knows Frank is his mate, but Frank is pretty sure Cael doesn’t even like him, never mind want to spend the rest of his life with him, so their personal relationship is at an impasse. When Frank’s sister, Lindsey, gets bitten by a werewolf she's sleeping with—and possibly witnesses a murder—Frank rides to her rescue. If he’s lucky, he might just save his love life too.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Zwei Romanzen mit Übernatürlichen 10. April 2013
Von Gelegenheitsleser TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Dieses Buch enthält zwei Geschichten, in denen übernatürliche Wesen die Protagonisten sind.
In der ersten, "Diagnosis: Wolf", von Poppy Dennison, tritt der Krankenpfleger Andrew eine Stelle an, bei der er einen jungen Mann pflegen soll, ohne ausreichende Information über seine Krankheit zu bekommen. Dumm nur, dass er auf das Geld dringend angwiesen ist und sich langsam aber sicher ein Gefühl einschleicht, dass ein Pfleger für seinen Patienten nicht haben sollte.
Und nun ergibt sich eine turbulente Handlung, die auch einen Krimianteil enthält, der aber - wie meist in diesen Romanzen - recht unprofessionell ist.
Sei's drum! Dafür ist der romantische Teil umso routinierter. Man gewinnt die beiden Protagonisten lieb und hofft, dass sich alles zum Guten wenden wird. 4 Sterne.
Die zweite, "Landslide", von Mary Calmes, wimmelt vor übernatürlichen Wesen, die alle irgenwas machen: kratzen, beißen, zaubern und womit sie sonst noch aufwarten können.
Die Geschichte beginnt so zäh, dass ich beinahe nach den ersten 20 Seiten aufgegeben habe. Man wird über alle möglichen Formen und Spielarten von übernatürlichen Wesen aufgeklärt, dass ich mir wie in einem Seminar vorkam. Anstatt Handlung zu gestalten, doziert die Autorin. Das ist langweilig!
Irgenwann kommt die Handlung dann doch noch in Gang, sie ist aber so abgedroschen, dass ich mich weiter langweilte. Nichts weiter als die bekannten Klischees der schrecklich intoleranten Eltern und gemeinen Mitschüler. Ich habe über diese Problematik schon Bücher gelesen, die mich noch eine Weile später verfolgten und stinksauer machten.

Diagnosis Wolf by Poppy Dennison

Rating: 4 stars

Andrew Hughes life sucks and its all due to his twin brother. For as long as Andrew can remember his twin has caused problems for everyone, especially Andrew. His brother has gambled, lied, then stolen Andrew's identity and savings. This has left Andrew miles deep in debt, with an unsalvagable credit rating, and scrambling to rebuild his life and move forward. Andrew can't afford to be choosy, so when his temp agency offers him a job with a client that has run off all other nurses, he takes it for the money he can't afford to turn down.

His client is Caleb DiMartino and no one will let him see his chart or tell Andrew what illness his new client has. Caleb comes with armed body guards, a mansion and an intimidating father. But the pale unconscious patient pulls Andrew in and Andrew wants to help him despite the mystery that surrounds him. But the truth behind Caleb's illness will bring Andrew's brother back into his life and pose a threat to Andrew and Caleb that neither expects.

Diagnosis Wolf spells out the problem in the title and wolf shifters is something that Poppy Dennison is very familiar with. She has her own take on wolf shifters and does a great job in creating a universe for them and Andrew. Andrew is a lovely, sympathetic character whose twin brother has made his life miserable their entire lives. I liked that Andrew had reached a point with his twin where he no longer enabled his twin's problems (that his brother stole his identity and savings helped push Andrew over the edge). I loved that Andrew was a nurse and his empathic caring nature made it plausible that he would stay with Caleb, even as the situation escalated past complicated and into scary.

I had some issues with the villain of the piece because I kept wondering how it was that the rest of the pack had not figured it out. And maybe a little more exposition would have been nice with respect to Andrew's brother, Danny and his future at the end. But those issues aside, I loved Poppy's wolf shifter culture, especially when it came down to the mate bite and the politics surrounding it. So nicely done and the complexities surrounding the status of the bite made the "aha" moment more angst and adrenaline filled. It also made the slow build to a permanent relationship between Caleb and Andrew extremely satisfying at the end. All in all, a really lovely story.

Landslide by Mary Calmes

Rating 4.5 stars

Courier Frank Corrigan is injured again and while he is waiting for his wounds to heal, he gets a call from his sister, Lindsey. Lindsey is in trouble as usual, but this time her impetuousness has lead her to get bitten by a werewolf who just so happens NOT to be her fiance. And the wedding is this week and she doesn't know what to do and needs her big brother now. Frank feels certain that his boss, the demon Cael Berith has the solution to his sister's problems. But Frank is also certain that there will be a price to be paid for Cael's assistance. Cael told Frank that Frank was Cael's mate. That was three years ago and Cael's patience is running out. With a love hungry demon on one side and a werewolf sister to be on the other, what will Frank do to save the situation and perhaps his love life in the bargain?

I will admit this was my favorite story of the two. It was perfect Mary Calmes in every way from the characters involved to the plot. First let's take a look at the characters. Paranormal courier Frank Corrigan is tall, a former Marine who just so happens to be a mihr. A mihr is a mutant human who has all the typical human frailties except that he cannot be influenced by any otherworldly magic or glamour or tricks. And in the universe Mary Calmes has created for Landslide, this makes Frank the perfect go between the paranormal beings. It seems that wolf shifters, vampires, ghouls, demons and what have you exist openly in human society. All must register with Homeland Security and various rules and regulations apply to their movement and existence within human societies. Take everything currently going on with border regulations and green cards, illegal aliens and extrapolate that times ten and you begin to get the picture that Calmes is so vividly painting for us.

Into this world, we meet Frank, a bundle of complexities. A former Marine with excellent combat skills, he also has huge self image issues and an abusive family in the background that has made him doubt his worth and attractiveness. His friends are a odd group of non humans, and his sister is his one family member who loves and supports him. Frank also has a secret that is helping to keep the one person he wants at a distance. And that would be his current boss who also claims Frank is his mate.

Incubus demon Cael Berith is 1,000 years old and only now has he found his mate in Frank Corrigan. But misunderstandings and Frank's insecurities have kept them apart for three years and a demon can only take so much frustration. Cael is such a mouthwatering character. He has so many facets to his personality. Scary demon, check. Romantic suitor? Check. Patience personified? Check and check. Mary Calmes makes us see Cael in all of his dimensions and still gives us a character to fall in love with. And when you add him to the soft, insecure and honorable Frank Corrigan, well then, just sit back and watch the sparks fly.

Typical of a Mary Calmes story we also are given memorable secondary characters too from the werewolf called Charming to Sheriff Gordy Roller. All perfectly drawn with interesting layers of their own. As the ending neared, I found myself wanting to know more about Lindsey's future and other peripheral characters. And I wanted more of what life had in store for Frank and Cael.

And that is almost always the issue with these anthologies or collections. If the plots are well done and the characters engaging, then when I reach the end I find myself wishing for more. But Creature Feature has plenty to offer from Poppy Dennison and Mary Calmes in terms of great stories and characters that will stay with you. Pick up some popcorn and settle in for an afternoon double feature. You are going to love it.

Cover Art by Paul Richmond just takes you back to the theatre and the Saturday matinees with the double features and creatures galore. Just perfect.

Wow...Poppy and Mary what could be better. Both stories are complete and flowed brilliantly. Isn't it great when you buy a book and get distracted all day with thoughts about rushing home and just re reading both novellas.

I am a fan of both Poppy's and Mary's so this was just the best pre Easter treat and yes I did nibble on a hot cross bun reading it...enjoy fellow readers.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining 21. März 2013
Von Sirius - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book to feed my Mary Calmes' addiction and it did the trick :). In essense it is the same story she always writes - warm and fuzzy connection forever, but I liked that she made the narrator not the epithome of physical perfection this time (do not remember her guys ever having love handles :)) and I have read almost anything she wrote) and everybody does not fall in love with him right away.

Bottom line it entertained me.

But I was so pleasantly surprised by Poppy Dennison's story - very exciting paranormal, even if the mating connection is also at the center of the story. I do not even know why I enjoyed it so much.

I loved the title and the cover of this book. Yep. I'm just that shallow to read a book because of those things. Well, the fact that two of my favorite authors, Mary Calmes and Poppy Dennison, had each written a paranormal 'Creature Feature' probably played a bigger part.

Diagnosis: Wolf by Poppy Dennison

Andrew needs money, badly, since his brother decided to "borrow" all of his savings and max out his credit card. If he doesn't get some work soon he won't be able to pay his rent. When the manager of the job service he works for calls, he'll do just about anything, even heading to a house where they've requested a female nurse, and where the father is apparently "difficult". But it's at double his normal hourly wage so he'll certainly try. Once Andrew gets inside the house, it's obvious the father isn't the problem, but his two bodyguards could use some manners. What's really strange, though, is that no one will tell him what is wrong with Caleb, and with no chart around, Andrew is left in the dark. He reluctantly agrees to care for Caleb for three days and, after that time, if he's going to stay on as his caretaker, Caleb's dad agrees to tell him everything.

Andrew's second day of work has an explosive beginning and, all of a sudden, Andrew is hit with the knowledge that shifters, wolf to be exact, do exist. It appears that Caleb has been growing weaker over the past few weeks and has now lost his ability to shift. Huh. A medical mystery, albeit of the paranormal type, for Andrew to focus on. The fact that Caleb's wolf appears to be responding to Andrew is taken as a good sign. Now, if only Andrew and Caleb can try to ignore their attraction while Andrew is working for him.

This is an exciting, fast-paced and very well written story. The climax (grins) left me breathless (snort) as there was a whole lot of intrigue and an action-packed ending. The romance between Andrew and Caleb was super sweet and I thought it was wonderful that both men got their perfect person when everything was said and done. Great story, Poppy, thank you!

Landslide by Mary Calmes

Demons, werewolves, witches, and more. Oh my! I love a good demon story and the fact that the author created a world where fairly regular people work as couriers for the paranormal was fascinating. Turns out paranormals don't trust other supernaturals to come and go from their homes, places of business, etc. Huh. Who knew? So, that's where Frank comes in. After eight years in the Marines he was introduced to the paranormal world, and being a big, tough bear who also is a mihr, someone whose mind and body cannot be messed with by paranormal tricks or magic, he took on the job of courier and has never looked back. He's worked for Cael, incubus demon, for the last three years. Of course, Cael claims that Frank is his mate and he even marked Frank with tattoos from head to toe, but Frank isn't buying the whole mate thing. Frank figures it's just demon doublespeak. Unfortunately for Frank, everything about Cael, even his true form in hell, just does it for Frank.

I fell for Frank and, amazingly, I fell for Cael, too. Frank is just a big ol' bear who likes to take care of people and protect them. I mean, in the three years he's been working as a courier for Cael, he's become friends with the werewolf who is always hired to steal whatever Frank is transporting. Frank even nicknamed the werewolf, Charming. It was really easy to view Cael as a power hungry demon, but he isn't. He has his own vulnerabilities and the fact that Frank doesn't believe he is his mate and won't spend time with Cael really hurts him. So, when Frank asks for Cael's assistance to help his little sister who got herself into a world of stupid trouble, Cael is thrilled to spend time with Frank. Helping Frank's sister doesn't turn out to be that easy, though, and the intimacy that Frank has fought against for three long years can't help but come to the forefront during their "adventure".

Wow. These guys were intensely hot together. Watching Frank lust for Cael's dominance was intensely erotic and when Cael claimed him? Oh boy. Cold shower might have been required. I'm not admitting to anything, though. This was a great story and I loved every minute of it and really would like to see more of Cael, Frank, and this world. Thank you, Mary!

Diagnosis: Wolf by Poppy Dennison

This was the weaker of the 2 stories for me. I have not read anything by Poppy Dennison before, and this was too insta love for me - why a nurse would fall for a sickly weak man is hard to explain, and how quickly the supernatural was explained was also a little odd. This didn't quite work for me.

Landslide by Mary Calmes

I always love Mary Calmes and bought this book for her. Here Frank's interactions with the supernatural worked far better for me. He is a rare human, who can commune with monsters and freelances a courier. The demon Cael claims him for a mate, but Frank doesn't believe him. In Landslide we see the push and pull between them, before resolution comes. I liked the tension and the camaraderie, the world building was strong and I would like to visit with these characters again.
