Editorial Reviews

Review

• “This book has a lot going for it: two likeable main characters with a deep emotional bond in Adam and Nate, an interesting premise, good secondaries in the other band members, blistering hot sex, and an unexpected villain willing to kill to get what he wants. There’s even a satisfying ending. What more could a reader ask for? Give this M/M a chance. You won’t be sorry you did.” ~ Literary Nymphs
• “Seeking Kokopelli” by Shelley Munro is an enjoyable paranormal story. The writing is strong, the characters are fun, and the sex is hot.” ~ Rainbow Reviews
• “Seeking Kokopelli is a romantic, heartfelt and emotional story about two men healing the pain from their pasts in order to embrace the promise of love in their futures. They are both strong and compliment each other’s personalities. It’s a wonderful book with believable dialogue and secondary characters that make the tale come alive. When Adam and Nate finally come together, the man love is sensual, satisfying and totally hot. It has meaning when they express their physical affections and that really does it for me. Ms. Munro consistently finds the perfect balance and gives readers a story they can connect with. If a reader is looking for quality content, and a satisfying happily ever after then I highly recommend this book.” ~ Whipped Cream Reviews

More About the Author

Shelley lives in Auckland, the City of Sails, with her husband and a cheeky Jack Russell/mystery breed puppy.

Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE soon after they married (translation of New Zealand speak - big overseas experience). A year long adventure lengthened to six years of roaming the world. Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub.

While travel is still a big attraction, these days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer following another love - that of writing stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby (strictly for research purposes), cycling, baking bread and curling up with a good book.

This was a particular novel that played with many themes without pushing too much any of them. First of all there is the contraposition between contemporary and paranormal romance: the story of recent widower Nate who falls in love for the young and hot musician he works for is a good hint for a contemporary romance, but the Adam is not exactly who appears at first; he descends from a long generation of Kokopelli men, basically semi-gods of fertility.

Then there is the little hint of gay for you theme, that was not quite fully developed; Nate was happily married with a woman, Rosa, but she died an year before of cancer; Nate still misses and mourns her, but he is also a man with his urges and he is deeply attracted by Adam. He admits to himself that, even if he was really in love with Rosa, it's not the first time he is attracted by a man, only that, while he was with Rosa he didn't need to search outside his marriage. But now that Rosa is gone, his body is ready to play again, even if his heart and mind are still a little scared. To Nate basically sex and love have no gender, you can love who your body, heart and mind make you love.

There is then the character of Adam's brother, the villain of the story, the one who desperately wanted the Kokopelli's power; from the beginning he is a bad guy without the core to be one; he commits a bad action and he feels guilty, even if most of the time they seemed crocodile's tears. I'm not sure he fully played his role of villain, he didn't seem so dangerous, and I felt like the author changed his mind with him and stopped his action in the momentum.

True love knows no boundaries despite society's penchant for labeling and pigeonholing. Legends and myths are not constrained by perception and their reality brings richness and rightness to a fledgling but beautiful romance.

This story is about the growth of love between two very different types of men. Adam comes from a family with traditions and expectations. He didn't fit the status quo so he was shunned and tossed out. What I liked about Adam was his determination and zest for life. He is talented and is loyal to his friends. He respects them yet remains insecure in himself. However, he's strong enough to not fall into a blubbering mass of self pity. He is a survivor and it shows. He never really shares his personal life with his friends in the band because he has convinced himself it doesn't matter. It's over. Thing is, he's not reconciled with his past and it affects his new path in life. He's sort of happy, but not completely. It takes courage to take that first step towards grabbing total happiness and he does.

Nate recently lost his wife; a woman he loved very much. I found it fascinating that Nate is a man who's more into the feeling of love than the definition of it. What I mean is he's not averse to being in a relationship with a man instead of a woman. It's the respect, profound feelings for that person and the emotional connection that holds more importance for him. I found it endearing that his internal struggle was more about being unfaithful to his wife's memory than loving a man.

The legend of Kokopelli is more than a story, it's Adam's legacy. It was torn from him and yet he found a way to survive without it. The question is- how is he going to deal when Kokopelli is back in his life?

Seeking Kokopelli is an interesting story centering on a man turned out by his family because of his homosexuality and a man trying to recover from the loss of his wife. To make their situation even more difficult, there's a bit of paranormal influence that might drive them apart just when they find each other.

Adam James is the hot lead singer for an up and coming band who's adored by women but prefers men. Out of fear for his band's future he keeps his true feelings to himself. Afterall, the last time he admitted to being homosexual it got him kicked out of his home. But keeping his feelings hidden is getting harder the more time he spends with his band's roadie Nate McKenzie. Nate's not ready for a relationship though since he's still grieving for his wife, nor is he ready to admit he's gay. But the more time they spend together, the more their attraction starts heating up. And as Adam is continually targeted for death by an unknown person, Nate realizes he can't live without him and gives into his true feelings. Will this be the end of the band once their relationship is discovered or the start to a long lasting love affair? And once Adam reveals to Nate his birthright of being Kokopelli to his people and his obligation to them to ensure their fertility, will he be willing to share him with others?

This was a sexy story that was an enjoyable read. The relationship between Adam and Nate was very passionate and believable. I could understand why they were drawn to each other and was rooting for them to come together. Adam's bandmates were another wonderful part of the story. They were the family he never had and their brotherly humor brought them even closer together. There were a few things that didn't work quite as well for me.
