Loose Id Books: Where Are They Now?

One thing readers could always count on when they purchased a book from Loose Id was that they would get high-quality fiction. LI books were well edited and met a certain standard of storytelling. With the closure of Loose Id, my fellow authors and I wanted to let the readers know where they can now find some of those wonderful books. In most cases, these titles have been edited yet again before being re-released through other publishers or through indie publication, so you can be confident you’ll get a top-notch read. Without further ado, here is a catalog of former LI books and where to find them, organized by genre and then alphabetized by title.

Wanderer’s Heart by Thom Lane, available at Amazon

Norton is a wanderer, rejected by family and community, headed for the great city of Amaranth because he can think of nowhere else to go. He encounters a pretty slave boy struggling with a log too heavy to lift, and stops to help him. This earns him a welcome from the boy Kim’s nomad clan and an invitation to a funeral feast, for the log is destined for the pyre of Kim’s late master. Kim is given to Norton in an act of casual generosity, and a night of passion bonds the two more strongly than a collar and chains–but Norton’s eyes are still on the far horizons, and leaving the clan will break his slave boy’s heart. There seems to be no answer that can leave them both happy. And then raiders from another clan steal Kim away…

Charles Westerman, Victorian England’s most sought-after landscape painter, is finished with love affairs. Yet after a taste of forbidden passion at a private art exhibition, he knows he’s met his muse in Rosamund. Problem is she’s married. For the sake of his career, Charles simply cannot afford to be distracted by another disastrous entanglement, especially one with a married woman. Art curator Rosamund, Lady Threxton, needs a man to satisfy her predilection for spanking. Her husband, Jeremy, does not relish the role of chastiser and, besides, has his own mistress to please. Jeremy, however, is quite amenable to Rosamund seeking out another. Hired men from her favorite erotic club provide her with only a modicum of relief. The furtive fling with Charles, though, leaves Rosamund certain she’s found her perfect match. Rosamund and Jeremy’s marriage is curiously modern for stodgy Victorian society.

Kira Shayde visits with Desires at War

Please welcome Kira Shayde to my blog. Kira writes m/f erotic shifter romances. As readers can tell from my own shifter romance, Tribal Shift, I love animals, so I’m excited to see lion and hyena shifters in Desires at War. Take it away, Kira.

***

Today, I want to talk about species conservation in Africa and mention the Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary. Some of you may have heard of Kevin Richardson—the Lion Whisperer. If not, here’s a quick video introduction to his amazing, hands-on connection with African lions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAGC06VyJtc

Kevin doesn’t just work with African lions though. He’s also particular to saving the spotted hyena, a carnivore not as picturesque or renowned as the African lion. In fact, many folks think the spotted hyena is nothing more than an ugly scavenger, but these highly social animals are actually intelligent and capable hunters. Watch this longer video and I guarantee you will be loving hyenas too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ni6yu1OCgks

But the spotted hyena is a direct competitor of the African lion on the Serengeti plains and their fierce battles for territory and prey led me to imagine a world in which these animals were human…shape-shifting humans. And it is here in Africa, with the lions and hyenas at war, we find my erotic paranormal series, Primal Shifters, and my new release, Desires at War.

KS_DesiresatWar_coverinMonths as a POW leaves lion shifter Fix Ainran struggling to recover, but he can’t get the curvaceous Caryn Plumar out of his mind. Yet the beautiful daughter of the hyena Chairman only torments the disabled former soldier with heated trysts before pulling away.

No matter how much she desires Fix’s touch, Caryn’s obligations involve more than fighting for an independent hyena state in a land ruled by lions and fraught with war. She must sacrifice any chance of happiness and freedom by marrying within the clan to ensure her safety.

Unable to stay apart, Fix and Caryn defy societal rules and risk their lives as they battle enemies, search for the truth about his captivity…and fall in love.

Excerpt

Waiting for the others to leave the room, Fix gripped the conference table. His first official parliamentary assignment. Why did he feel so sullied? He should feel proud, not coated in the slime of tense deals and false friendship. When the last man had filed out, Fix wearily set his hands on his wheelchair’s push rims.

“Let me,” a familiar voice said.

He lifted his head as Caryn stepped behind him, her graciousness washing the slime and tension away.

“How about I show you the palace gardens?”

“I’d like that,” he replied with a smile, grateful for another chance to be with her.

She pushed his chair out of the conference room and down the hallway to a set of open French doors. A soft breeze carried in a floral scent, and they crossed the entryway into a sea of African violets. His wheels made a soft thump with each revolution on the brick walk.

Around the bend, bright yellow lilies framed a baobab tree. The straggly branches atop the thick trunk looked like tree roots. An old myth stated the gods gave the hyenas the job of planting the baobab trees, and the laughing hyenas planted the trees upside down.

Fix pointed to the tree. “Your family must have a sense of humor.”

Caryn chuckled. “My great-great-grandfather planted that tree in honor of his new bride, a woman who shared his sense of fun.” They turned another corner, and she inhaled deeply. “I love walking among the gardens. I know every flower species here. In fact, I probably spend more time weeding and pruning than the gardeners do.” She laughed again.

Damn, he loved the sound of her laughter. Rich, full. No delicate twitters like those of the simpering first-caste girls he’d known back in school.

He gestured to the flowers. “You should own a greenhouse or something.”

“I’d love to, but…”

Something about the unexpected melancholy in her voice made him want to stop in his tracks. He took control of the wheelchair so he could turn around to face her. “Then why don’t you?”

A bitter smile crossed her face. “My father wouldn’t view ‘small business owner’ as a suitable occupation for his eldest daughter.”

“Why not?”

She raised her face to the skies. “I live a sheltered life, Fix. Privileged compared to most hyenas, but sheltered. My father tries to protect me from the harsh realities of a society controlled by lions. A society where all others are not even considered fourth caste, but untouchables, forbidden to live or even work on lion-owned lands.”

His jaw clenched. F***ing caste hierarchy. He angled his chair and wheeled toward a small private alcove surrounded by vines. “Come with me.”

Nestled in the vegetation, blocked from the outside world, he took her hand in his and drew her onto his lap. He inhaled her sweet lavender scent, more intoxicating than the flowers around them. “You are not untouchable,” he whispered, gently stroking her cheek.

He skimmed her long hair with the back of his hand and exposed the seductive curve of her neck. When he brushed a kiss along her pulse point, her body trembled.

“No, Fix,” she protested weakly.

But this time he didn’t let her go. Lush, sheltered Caryn Plumar needed to be shown just how touchable she was. Wrapping his hand behind her head, he slanted his mouth over hers and caressed her full lips. Lightning raced up his spine. How he’d longed for this. To hold her, to kiss her. To breathe in her essence. To feel her shudder in his arms.

Her mouth parted with a sharp intake of breath, and he darted his tongue in and found hers, his heart thudding against his rib cage. He eased back and licked her lips with slow swirls. Her sweet taste made him dizzy.

She arched into him, her breaths shallow and fast.

“Oh gods,” she murmured.

Her low, husky voice hit him deep in the groin.

***

Kira enjoys studying love, sex, and relationships, and has a weakness for shifters.

As a romance writer, Kira explores somewhat atypical pairings and settings and can’t help adding a twinge of societal awareness to her works, but the focus is always on the developing romance, passion, and happy endings. In her erotic romances, you won’t find any hard-core BDSM. Kira prefers her hero and heroine to share the power and share the love.

A former university research associate and wildlife rehabilitator, Kira is addicted to the Instagram accounts of conservation groups and sanctuaries and spends far too much time online looking at pictures of birds, big cats, wolves, chocolate desserts, and Jamie Dornan.

The Purrfect Read

 

“I’m Rasik of Tribe Gahiji. My people turn into caracals and make up a large tribe of shifters on the Middle Continent of planet A’ata. I’m an excellent hunter and use my skills to help my brother, Taj, who is leader of our tribe. We are allies with Tribe Fahari — a mixed group of shifters that includes my beautiful, stubborn Kalya. I’ve known Kalya since childhood and have come to love her with an adult male’s passion. She can’t resist mating with me forever.

I’d like to welcome my fellow cats…at least those of you who haven’t come to make trouble in Allie’s domain. Why don’t you introduce yourself and tell us your story?”

(Tribal Shift by Allie Ritch)

“Hello. I’m Alain. Alain Bellarose. I was last a human in the 16th century in France where a powerful witch saw me dying and gave me the gift of change. I became a witch’s familiar in the form of a black cat, and since that time I have served the witch’s community by magnifying their powers. I’m Aloysius, the greatest familiar in the world! But now — ah, a huge blast of power has transformed me back to a human and I have met Luke, the beautiful and mysterious. In his arms, I know how wonderful it can be to live as a man. But Luke doesn’t know my secret. And without Aloysius, the witches are vulnerable to attack. As a human I have no power. As a cat, I can’t know love. I must choose. Witch or man? Cat or human? Power or love.”

(Cataclysmic Shift by Tara Lain)

 

Rasik: “A difficult choice, Alain. Sometimes we need power to protect those we love.”

“Power is everything. I am Mashaka. With my fellow leopard shifters, I will build Tribe Nemera into the strongest tribe ever seen. No one will stand in my way.”

(Tribal Shift by Allie Ritch)

Rasik: (ignores the larger cat and turns to the twins)

“My name is Evan and I’m a painter. I’m also a tiger. How is that possible? (Grins.) I’m a tiger shifter. At will, I can change my shape and allow the animal within to take over. I’ve got a twin brother, Ian. We do just about everything together. He’s a surveillance tech and good with gadgets. Me? I have a hard time using my smart phone. It’s all good. We balance each other out.

There are some things even twins have a hard time sharing—women. Or rather, one woman in particular. I’m a tiger and I’ve got a voracious sexual appetite, but there is one woman I want to claim. Her name is Kaia. I’ve loved her since the moment I met her. Thankfully, Ian does, too. I did mention we do everything together? To be complete, we need to mate with the same woman at the same time. Tall order, don’t you think? But I’m convinced Kaia can handle not only the both of us, but our tigers, too.

Tigers get what they want.”

(Dual Threat by Wendi Zwaduk)

“Did someone mention women? My name is Asad, and I enjoy my pride of female lion shifters, especially when they come into season. Children are to be protected. I will hunt down anyone who harms our young ones to the ends of A’ata. Mashaka, I am coming for you and your leopards.”

(Tribal Shift by Allie Ritch)

 

Rasik: “Perhaps having so many strong male shifters in one place isn’t the best idea. I suggest we go back to our own territories. Those who wish to learn more about us can visit us there.”
