Fate in Suspension (Horn & Haven #1) by Archer Kay Leah

Fate in Suspension is the first in an exciting new series, Horn and Haven. It features a fantastic cast of paranormals with a BDSM aspect! 

From the blurb:

Quiet. That's how he likes life, no drama to clean up...

Tai Xen-Vorsy leads a straightforward life: work, time at the local clubs where shapeshifters like him can play without fear, and the comforts of home with a cat that's more than half attitude. After breaking up with his last submissive, he's even taking a break from Dom duties.

Meeting Gates changes everything, and when Tai's childhood home is destroyed, his simple life goes up in flames.

The Callensdale haven was his refuge as an orphan, a hideaway that saved his life. Now it's time to return the favour. Bringing in the Fluff Brigade Brotherhood would make all the difference... if he could just get them back together. Tai won't give up—he's not that kind of unicorn. But can he reunite the brotherhood and keep his new relationship with Gates kindled at the same time?

The darkness is dragging him into the shadows, one case at a time...

Helping others is all Gates Colfaethe wants to do, being mostly unicorn shifter with a splash of Faerie. But years as an agent on trafficking cases leave him fearing just how far he'll lose himself in the job before he burns out completely.

A random hookup with Tai might be the very change he needs. A new Dom means new rules and the chance to create safe distance from work—until his worlds collide in a twist Gates should leave well enough alone. What he knows is bad enough, but running headlong into danger could kill him.

Horn & Haven is an MM+ romance series featuring a found family of unicorn shifters brought together by tragic circumstances. Friends out to save a magical world in trouble. Family fighting to protect those they love. Lovers falling for the kinkiest unicorns this side of their universe... Welcome to the Fluff Brigade Brotherhood.

Janet's Review:

Fate in Suspension is the first book in the Horn and Haven series. This was a new to me author. The world building and scenery is well descriptive. The story started a little slow for my taste, but moves rather swiftly after the first chapter. 

Tai attends the Shifting Sanctuary nightclub. He’s a paranormal Dom, wandering he goes into The Lare. There he meets Butterfly, Gates. Holy smokes that got hot fast. Gates is a unicorn/mage shifter. He tracks child traffickers. 

Loved, loved, all the paranormal! Loved the BDSM aspect, hot, hot, hot! Tai and Gates had insane chemistry, loved their banter and teasing. I’ve become invested in their story and all the members of the brotherhood. 

Overall, Fate in Suspension is a fantastic first book in a new series. Well written with nice pacing that will keep you engaged. Highly recommend.
