About Brenda Cothern

Brenda is unlike most authors since she only began writing 2010. She never wrote fan-fic but has been an avid D&D player for over 35 years. Painting pictures and telling stories for gamers to see in their imaginations came naturally and now she does the same in her novels.

She is an International best-selling author and her love for reading fantasy, paranormal, and contemporary erotic romance has allowed her to apply her Bachelor’s degrees in management and marketing to her new career.
Her first best-seller in 2012, Coming Home, was Brenda's first attempt at a short story and admittedly ‘shorts’ are not her forte. Brenda’s Shadows universe has been compared to True Blood or Anita Blake by fans and her Mad Dogs series have received rave reviews for its uniqueness. Brenda utilizes her 20+ years in the leather & kink lifestyle to make her BDSM books (Undercover Love, Fire & Ice, & Barely Restrained) realistic. They are also what Brenda considers her best work.

Brenda travels the country appearing at leather events and conventions. She frequently is asked to speak on panels about writing and BDSM/kink related topics or teach classes on Negotiation, Flogging, or Rope Bondage. When Brenda is not writing; she lives and breathes in the Tampa Bay gay leather community. She was a member of the Tampa Leather Club for 5 years before they disbanded and the only associate member to receive an award (2011) for her dedication toward making the club events all they can be. In 2014, Brenda also received the award for Ms. Community Service 2015 from the Florida Puppy Contest organizers. In 2015, Brenda was again honored for her service to the community when she was pinned ‘Mama’s Tampa Wench’ by Sandy ‘Mama’ Reinhardt who has been an activist for over forty years. Less than 2000 leather community members worldwide have received this honor. Brenda was also member of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for 5 years. In Nov., she became (the first) Ms. Florida Leather n' Fetish Pride (2016) and in Jan. 2017, she purchased the weekend event that is held in Florida annually.

Brenda resides in Tampa with her husband of 20+ years, 5 cats, a rabbit named Alice, and a turtle named Tammy (the rabbit & turtle aren't hers). She is the mother of three beautiful daughters and a grandmother of two gorgeous granddaughters, a grandson, and another grandchild on the way!

Brenda loves to hear from her fans so don’t hesitate to contact her online!

I would like to first thank the author for allow me to be a beta reader for this book. I absolutely love the Mad Dogs series.

Here is what I felt about the book.

Characters: 4
As each book progresses we learn more about the Mad Dogs and how they function, not only as a unit, but as individuals and as couples. Watching the layers around Brian being peeled aways as more of his personality, emotions and beliefs emerge has been a rewarding experience so far and one I want to continue to enjoy throughout however many more books Mrs. Cothern decides to put in this series.

Plot: 4
I hate to use a cliche here but the "plot thickens" in this book. We finally get to see and learn more about the two main powerhouses in the supernatural community as some of their motives get revealed and it does not all look like roses for the Mad Dogs.

Flow: 4
Cothern's flow is good as always and there is not much more I can say that I have not already said before about it.

Believability: 4
This is always a big one for me and one that Cothern does effortlessly. The moment that this fails (which I doubt she ever will) shall be the moment I stop reading this series.

Sexual Tension: 5
This was taken up another level and I liked it but I did have a couple of times when it drove me bonkers. I mean, I feel like we have been stuck in one long foreplay moment and I would like something to finally give.

Romance: 3
Because of the nature of the storyline and what was actually happening in this book, there was not as much "romance" as the first two but the romantic love between Brian and Markus is still going strong.

I really enjoyed this book and the character development. The sex was just enough to keep it hot and steamy and the action played out like an awesome movie. I have read Ms. Cothern's books before and like the ones I've read in the past, this book leaves you looking forward to the next one. If you still have any doubts about ready this book, I leave you with this final thought... this is a book about gay werewolves in special forces that are eager to fight and have raw animal sex.

As a fan of not just the Mad Dog series, but also Brenda Cothern's books, I love this story. We meet some members of the Council, get more of my favorite non-Mad Dog Duke, and find them on another adventure. However, the difference is they need to rescue some of their own. Follow all of the Mad Dogs on their latest adventure, and fall in love with them more.
