Call of Home series Box Set

Now available for the first time in one book, the Call of Home series is three books with gay MCs. There are MCs with age gaps and some with disabilities. Many are trying to escape their pasts but find they cannot escape themselves. The stories are all set on the North East coast of Scotland and have a host of secondary characters from interfering family and friends to a cat eager to be adopted. At this bargain price, why not give them a try and meet Zac and Seth, Brice and Darach and Sam and Tosh? 
Choosing Home
You can never escape from yourself.
Zac McKenzie is an ex-professional footballer with a secret he gave up his career to protect. Several years ago, he fled to his home in the North East of Scotland to avoid being outed as gay. Now, he owns a successful hotel and restaurant, but is it time to finally come out into the open?
Seth Pritchard feels he’s damaged goods. He comes to Scotland to escape memories of the accident that left him injured, his bullying stepbrothers and a life of lies.
For their whole lives, Zac and Seth have denied who they truly are to themselves as well as others. When they meet, each man is forced to confront his fears and tear them down one by one.

Goodreads Review

Healing, accepting, loving.
What a perfect tale. Seth is such a broken man. From a young age, his step family has beat him down emotionally and physically. To the point he can’t and won’t do or look at certain things. He just can’t. Then the horrific accident happens and now it’s time to heal.
Zac, an ex-footie, is also a broken man, hiding who he really is from most everyone in his life. Both have ran away to Scotland, one for months of healing and one started a fresh life.
Together and with outside help maybe they can heal each other.
I love these two, and that cat.
Zac is so patient, Seth, so broken, but it’s not a sad cry ever page book, it’s all about healing, finding joy, love, laughter. Everyone, has such a perfect role to play, the brother, the best-friend, the cook, even the ex-BF.
The ending was more beautiful and when the step family got the ‘just deserts’ at the end!
And we got our HEA, swoon!
Returning Home
You can never escape from yourself.
When Darach McNaughton returns to his home town, the one thing he isn’t looking for is love. But when he meets the mysterious Brice Drummond, his investigative instinct isn’t the only thing aroused.
After a gang beats Brice Drummond, leaves him for dead, and needing to use a wheelchair, he ends up in a witness protection program. His only company is a beautiful cat aptly named Princess. He creates beautiful pieces of art, but allows no one into his life—until a handsome policeman appears out of nowhere.
On a snowy night, Darach McNaughton returns a crying cat to its owner and is immediately curious about the beautiful man with the tattoos. Bit by bit, Darach uncovers the shocking truth about Brice’s history. Can he get past what he discovers? Can Brice let someone into his life? Or will the past catch up with them both and tear their fledgling love apart?

Amazon Review

Emotional and sexy!
Brice gets brutally beaten and left for dead one night, which leaves him wheelchair bound and then shuffled off to the witness protection program. Not wanting anyone in his life, he becomes close to his cat named Princess. One night Princess gets out and is returned by handsome police officer Darach. Brice lets him into his home and slowly into his heart. As these two forge on in their relationship Brice starts to fill Darach in on his past, but is Brice willing to let someone in his life? Can he trust again?
Emotional roller coaster!!! That’s all I can say, I was bawling while reading Brice’s trauma and the way Darach tries to mend this broken man back together!! Their relationship is genuine and pure and you can’t help but fall for these two and their journey together!! Great story!!

Staying Home
You can never escape yourself.
It has been a year since the death of Brodie ‘Tosh’ Mackintosh’s husband, Harry. Unable to face all the memories of their life together, he moves into the house of his best friend, Darach McNaughton, and is comforted by the local Church of Scotland minister, Sam Carmichael, the middle of the five Carmichael brothers.
Sam Carmichael has always been a bit different from his siblings. He’s the only blond in a family of redheads, and the only one with religious beliefs. He also has more than one secret.
Can these two men overcome the events of their pasts and find truth and comfort with each other? And, when all their secrets are revealed, will they be forced apart or be able to plan on staying home together?

Goodreads Review

Of the three, perhaps my favourite - we have had a build up of stories and characters to get to this point through the previous books. Also, the issues were real - acceptance in the church, dealing with the shock revelation, dealing with grief
Tosh and Sam have had a support relationship since the tragic death of Tosh’s husband. Sam has been a counsel for Tosh more than a man of the cloth.
So their relationship moved from support to more quite quickly being as how Sam was firmly in the closet - and for many more reasons than his being a member of the clergy.
It isn’t easy for him to admit to others all his secrets but gradually they come out.
Lots more stories also - Mal, Cameron, Hamish all left us with intriguing hooks.
