Book Blurb

They know a thousand ways to kill...and zero ways to love.

With the scientist's evil slowly killing him, Barclay knows he has a limited amount of time to complete his plans. Only his sweet duck keeps Barclay sane and in control of the Battle Bunnies. When he discovers his third mate, the world as Barclay knows it turns on its axis. But is it too late?

Elliot stayed in duck form to please Barclay. Now Barclay is on death’s door and their mate, Tavarus, is demanding Elliot help bring him back to the land of the living. But is it too late?

Tavarus knows that trying to deny a mating is futile. It’s time to show Barclay and Elliot the error of their ways. In this mating, Tavarus is the one in charge, and he is more than ready to handle a feisty duck and show his bunny how indestructible a true mating can be. For Tavarus, it’s never too late to find love.

Note: This book contains double anal penetration.


Book Review

The mystery of what is going on with the somewhat brusque oldest bunny brother, Barclay, and the enigmatic duck has been brewing for quite a while. I was excited to find out that this book is about Barclay, that the duck has a name –Elliot – and is, as I suspected, Barclay’s mate. There are also some surprises: Barclay and Elliot find out they have a third mate named Tavarus, the scientists are even more evil than previously shown, and Barclay can’t be in charge of everything. This story is suspenseful, filled with a few twists and turns, and contains some very hot three-way action once the guys find the time to work on claiming each other.

Barclay has known for a while that he is dying due to one of the scientists doing a particularly devious experiment with him as the subject. This fact explains some of his earlier gruffness (which I had a real problem with) and why he has been so focused on his brothers finding their mates. Now Barclay thinks he has reached the end of his road, but Elliot doesn’t want him to give up. Neither does Tavarus, once they rescue him, but Barclay has a hard time accepting anyone else’s opinion. He is as stubborn as they come, and it takes quite a bit of doing before he even begins to see the error of his ways.

It was good to see Elliot take human form at last and to get to know him a little. He‘s very dedicated, desperate to save Barclay’s life, and more than a little stubborn himself. He and Tavarus make a great team that focuses on protecting Barclay. His feelings of superiority over geese were hilarious.

Tavarus is big, strong and very dominant. He will not let Barclay run the mating, but he is also flexible when need be and can let Elliot or Barclay take the lead – on occasion. He is as possessive as they come and will do anything to save Barclay’s life. The fact that Barclay leads the Battle Bunnies does not sit easy with Tavarus, but he is smart enough not to interfere too much in that part of his mate’s life.

As with all triads, it takes a while for these three men to find their balance; They make a good start here, but I have a feeling there is more to come. That, and the fact that there is a hint about who Basil’s mate may be, and it doesn’t look like a natural fit at all!

If you like the ‘Battle Bunnies’ series, if you want to see Barclay fight for his life and see him accept a second mate, and if you’re looking for a read that is action-packed, suspenseful, and full of revelations, then you will probably like this novella.
