Virtual Book Tour, eARC Review, Excerpt & #Giveaway:Ryan's Wizard (Paws & Magic #2) by Beany Sparks


Beany lives in Western Australia. She first started reading romance novels in 2008, but it wasn't until January 2010 when her Kindle got delivered that the world of erotic romance opened its doors to her, and she hasn't looked back.
With suggestions and support from friends, her muse—“affectionately" known as PITA—was finally able to break free, and in January 2014 her first story was written. Since she can’t put PITA back in his box, Beany has decided to give in and team up with him. Together they’ve made plans to write both MF and MM stories.

He’s surprised to find that Aiden now has a mate—a male, shifter mate—named Lex. And it’s Lex’s pack mates that Olly is there to help save. What he hadn’t expected was Lex’s brother Ryan.Ryan Shepherd was happy to have found his brother Lex, and even happier to know that his brother was happily mated. But there is something about Aiden’s cousin Olly that Ryan doesn’t trust, especially when he also smells like the man currently holding his pack members captive. Yet that doesn’t stop Ryan from wanting to hold and comfort the man, and eventually he realizes why—Olly is his mate.Now the four of them need to plan a rescue mission, but what happens when they run into the two men that had held Lex captive and those same men come to the cabin in the middle of the night?


Excerpt

Aiden burst out laughing and moved one hand to ruffle Olly’s hair.
“Hey!” Olly exclaimed as he pulled back in order to glare at Aiden, who just smiled bigger and pulled him back into his arms.
“I couldn’t resist,” Aiden said, the laughter evident in his voice.

“Yeah, whatever. Anyway, back to what I was saying, but hopefully without interruptions this time.” Olly looked pointedly at Ryan when he said that. Ryan seemed to be studying him intently, but didn’t utter a word.
Olly looked away and started talking again. “I know where the pack is, or at least, I know where a bunch of canine shifters are being held.”
“How do you know that they’re part of our pack?” Lex asked, sounding like he was trying to restrain his eagerness.
Olly turned to him. “Because I heard a few of the guards talk about how they captured a bunch of them together.”
“And why didn’t you get caught?” Ryan asked, anger in his voice.
“Because,” Olly paused, then sighed. “The house they’re being held in belongs to Walter.”
Aiden gasped and when Olly looked at him, he saw the horror that was on his face.
“How long has Walter had shifters imprisoned on his property?” Aiden asked, outrage in his voice.
“I don’t know for sure, but it would be a number of years.” Olly couldn’t face any of them as he said that.
“Who is this Walter?” Ryan growled.
Olly looked up at him, then looked away as he replied, “My father.”

Review
My Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars
Ryan, or Lex's brother, is an alpha German Shepherd shifter. After getting separated from Lex, he had managed to survive being hunted. Hurt and alone for some time, he finally has enough trust to go to the location Lex had told him he and their kind would be safe. He knew that Lex's mate was a wizard but he had no idea that when he finally walks into the safe house, he would find another wizard there. 

Olly was just like Aiden, but less hated by their 'wonderful' family. Where Aiden had been kicked out after declaring he was gay, Olly had kept quiet and disappeared into the shadows. He did keep in touch with his grandmother but when she died, he almost lost hope. When her ghost instructed him to go to Aiden in a secure location, he ignored the call until she proved her might and power that he had no choice but to go and join his cousin. 

The short synopsis is where the first book, Aiden's Shepherd, ended and Ryan's Wizard, this second book, opens. In short, if you have not read book one, be sure to get lost. This is a complicated paranormal story where ghosts converse with the living and the powers of wizards are a mystery. What they now know about their magic are all based on speculation, thanks to their subjecting the most powerful of them all to their snobbery and hypocrisy. They had no idea that the very ones they subjected to bully and cruelty were the most powerful of them all. Thanks to grandmother Alayna, they were protected. Shielded. 

Now their time has come. Their powers are rising, her ghost is there to guide them, and their mates are there to protect them. One by one, those who had been lost are now found and the future is hopeful. Thing is, they may have to go through a little bit of a power struggle before they find their happily ever afters.

Book two ends, more mysteries to come and more characters with unknown powers will rise. 



We asked Beany: It is the last 25 hours of your life. What do you do?

First of all, I would make sure I dont have to go to work because that would suck!
Once I had that sorted I would book myself in for a nice massage in the afternoon. Then I'd grab my iPod/iPad, hop in the car and drive down the road to the marina. I'd get a comfy seat at the cafe, order a cup of tea and then read or write, depending on if PITA is feeling chatty. If it's cold I'd go to the place next door where they have food and a fireplace. 
Then I'd enjoy my day, have people bring me food and drinks before leaving to go and have my massage. After that I'd go home and continue reading/writing. 
It's not all that exciting, but an hour long massage would be ideal!
