The Gathering is called. The spell is cast. There is no escaping the Midnight Matings.
Milo's spent the majority of his life parading one man after another through his bedroom. He doesn't do relationships, and he definitely doesn't do commitment. While trying to escape the chaos of the gathering, the sweetest sound in the world catches his interest and threatens his playboy lifestyle.
When Milo Gavari loses control and claims him in the middle of the ballroom, Lark thinks he's finally found his missing half. The hellhound has a body to die for, but Lark quickly realizes the total package is far from perfect.
Milo's reputation for being cold and evasive isn't going to deter him, though. There's a sweet center to that rough exterior, and Lark intends to bring it to the surface. With his meddlesome aunts and Milo's overbearing father in the mix, finding his happy ending isn't going to be easy. But, the best things in life never are.

HOWL AND HARMONY, the 11th in the Midnight Matings series, is all about meddling families. Milo's family put the "D" in dysfunctional and Lark's the "N" in nosey. But they also are the reason for some of the funnier parts of the book.
Milo is a hellhound and a playboy, so when the Elders make their announcement, he is not happy. He just wants to go back to Dallas and his job as an EMT alone. On his way to the front of the room to tell the Elders just that, he hears a voice that makes his dick go rock hard.
Lark is the only male siren ever born. His mother is dead but he has 27 aunts who think they can control his life. When Milo rescues Lark from an over-aggressive wolf, Lark knows that Milo is the One. But Milo doesn't want a mate and when he walks away from Lark's offer of some no strings attached sex, Lark does what he always does when he is sad….he sings. As soon as Lark opens his mouth, Milo knows there is no walking away.
Claiming Lark is the easy part; it's everything that comes after that, that's the problem.
This is a sweet, funny story. The protagonists are quirky, cute and hot all rolled into one fabulous couple. Milo is hesitant at first but once he makes the commitment, he is loyal and puts up with a lot to be with Lark. If Lark wasn't so cute, he would come off as kind of stalkerish, he just "happens" to live across the street from Milo?? It's entertaining and had several laugh out loud moments, mostly because of Lark's aunts and their inappropriate timing for their pop-ins.
There is some interesting mythology introduced in this story and it just adds more layers to the Elders' argument that the species need to interact. The Hades twist is a nice addition. If you want something light-hearted and funny with a little heat added in, then this would be a good choice.
