LGBTQ, Vamps & Shifters Romance
The Gathering is called. The spell is cast. There is no escaping the Midnight Matings.
Sterling Roane has a job to perform. He is the personal bodyguard of a vampire coven leader. When the council of elders decrees that everyone needs to find a mate, Sterling isn't interested, but he can't deny the mating heat sweeping through his body.
Still, he has a mission to complete and a coven leader to protect. When a wolf shifter interferes with that duty, the fight is on. Before Sterling knows it, he's accidentally mated to the Alpha of the Pacific Northwest Region. It's just too bad that his new mate swears he isn't gay. It gets even worse when Sterling finds out that Beau is engaged to be married.
Heartbroken, Sterling drops Beau off in the middle of nowhere and flees back to New York only to find out that the hell waiting for him there is worse than what he left in a Wyoming airport. Someone is trying to claim him, and it's not his mate.

FANG AND FUR is number six in the Midnight Matings series. Stormy Glenn brings us the story of Beau and Sterling, a wolf and vampire respectively. While this match-up might not seem as strange as some of the others, there might be a slight problem….Beau is engaged…to a woman!
Sterling was just standing around doing his job guarding the coven leader of New York City when the Elders made their little announcement. In the erupting chaos while trying to get his boss out of the hall, they are attacked from behind by a wolf. Sterling gets his boss out of the room and in the ensuing fight he gets bitten by the wolf and through a series of accidents, the two end up exchanging blood and are therefore mated. Sterling hits the man knocking him out and drags him to the dais to register their mating where he learns that the man he has just mated is the Alpha for the entire Pacific Northwest Region.
Beau wakes up to the sweetest smell in the world but with no idea where he is or how he got there. The mating heat hits both men and one things leads to another before Beau really knows what is happening he is having sex…..with a man…and it's the best sex ever! When the afterglow has worn off and Beau announces to Sterling that he doesn't remember how they mated, he isn't gay and he is engaged to be married, Sterling flips out and has his pilot land the plane at the nearest airport and leaves Beau standing on the tarmac with his mouth hanging open.
Sterling returns to New York thinking to never see Beau again and contacts his uncle Elder Lewis to find some way to get him out of the mating so he doesn't go feral. What Sterling doesn't know is that his mate isn't going to be left behind so easily. Now if they can learn to communicate with each other without jumping to conclusions and if they can survive a bat-shit crazy coven leader and a pyscho wolf shifter ex-fiancée, they just might have a chance.
I flipped back and forth on my thoughts about this book. While I really liked the relationship between Beau and Sterling, there were several things that happened that frustrated me as a reader. At one point Beau's crazy ex escapes and injures one guard while killing the other. When Sterling sees the body, he tells them a vampire killed the dead guy. They never ask the injured guy what happened?? Then they are wondering how she escaped, hello ask the injured guard, it's pretty obvious that she had an accomplice if one of the guards was killed by a vampire and she is a wolf. I also found myself more interested in some of the secondary characters like Micah than the main couple.
I did however enjoy Sterling and how protective he is of Beau. Sterling may be small in stature compared to Beau but he is a force to be reckoned with. I love that everyone underestimates him and how he proves them wrong. Beau isn't your typical alpha either, and once he accepts his feelings for Sterling, he is fully committed to sharing everything in their relationship from pack decisions to who's on top in the bedroom.
While I didn't connect as deeply with this couple as some of the others, it is still a strong addition to the series.
