Weed and Feed by Julia Talbot and BA Tortuga - 4 Nymphs (Light BDSM)
Vampire Cian is ready to cut short his stay at Cereus resort until he saw rowdy gardener werewolves Terry and Boone sharing the benefits of their friendship. Wolf Alpha Jackson had an interest in Terry and Boone. Together in Cian’s room, the four men spent a most pleasurable evening teaching Terry and Boone about control. 

Jonny’s Epilogue
Jonny is an ancient vampire, business owner as well as a matchmaker. Jonny considers his employees and close friends as family, always willing to help them anyway he can. When Jonny receives a phone call from Cereus manager Duke, Jonny is happy with the positive updates. Business is going so well that Jonny is opening another resort in the south of France. 

Overall, the stories are impressive as well as enjoyable. The Cereus series, beginning with Cereus: Building, is a spin-off from Julia Talbot’s Bloodrose series.
