Teaser Tuesday--Wolf of her Own


“Baby, I want it more than I want my next breath,” he assured her. Her smile brightened the entire room, and he momentarily forgot when he meant to say. When she tried to pull her hand from his grip, he remembered. “I don’t want you to think you have to do this.”

She tugged again, and this time he released her. “I want to.”
Mikhail gave up the fight. Whether it was the right decision or not really didn’t matter. It was what Elise wanted. What she needed.
He almost snorted aloud. Yeah, he was a giver, all right. It wasn’t as though he thought he might die if she didn’t touch him soon. Not at all.

Happy Victoria Day Weekend!

It's the Victoria Day weekend here in Canada, more commonly known as the May 24th weekend (or May Two-four) even though it rarely falls on that date. It's the unofficial kickoff to summer here. I'm looking forward to some nice weather and some sunshine.

Enjoy your long weekend.

Happy Victoria Day to all my Canadian friends!

Weekend Book Club--Seal Camp by Suzanne Brockmann

I've been a huge fan of Suzanne Brockmann's Tall, Dark and Dangerous series for years. (The original paperbacks are on my "keeper" shelf.) Now she has a new book out in the series!

SEAL CAMP is the 12th book in the series and it was worth the wait.

All your favorite characters are back from Lucky, Joe Cat, Bobby Taylor and his wife Colleen, Thomas King, and Rio Rosetti. I hope this is a sign that there will be more TDD books in the future.


Navy SEAL Lieutenant Jim “Spaceman” Slade’s got a problem. A SEAL Team is only as fast as its slowest member—and right now, thanks to his battered knees—that’s Jim. He reluctantly takes medical leave, but he’s a SEAL, so he spends his “vacation” as an instructor, helping out a former Senior Chief who runs a camp for SEAL wannabes. But to Jim’s shock, he finds himself falling for the one woman attending the camp session—an obviously brilliant but seemingly timid lawyer who is determined to do everything her way, no matter how wrong.

Ashley DeWitt’s got a problem, too. She’s a kickass lawyer, but when it comes to her personal life, she’s a total pushover. When she finds herself hiding behind her condo Dumpster to avoid a confrontation with an ex, she decides enough is enough and signs up for a session at a camp called SEAL World, in hopes she’ll discover how to be more assertive outside of the courtroom. And then she’s assigned to Jim’s team...

When an alpha male—smart, funny, strong, but terrified of a future trapped behind a desk—collides with a smart, funny, and quietly strong woman with a troubled past, sparks fly hot and fast.

Tuesday Teaser and Pre-Order Links for Wolf of her Own

Wolf of her Own, book 9 in the Salvation Pack series is now up for pre-order at Amazon and other e-retailers.

Mikhail Matheson may be an outsider in Salvation, but he stays with the pack to be close to his sister. It has nothing to with the fact that Elise—the most fascinating woman he’s ever laid eyes on—is part of the pack. Mikhail has wanted Elise for years, but being with her could cost him his life. Soon he’ll have to decide if he’s going to leave the pack or risk it all to pursue a place at her side.

After escaping her abusive mate, Elise LaForge has made a home in Salvation with her sons. She never expected to have her emotions stirred up by the always serious and seriously handsome Mikhail. But can she finally put her past behind her and dare to move on?

When danger creeps into the pack, both she and Mikhail have to be willing to sacrifice everything to have a chance at love.


I’m sorry, Elise, but I think I deserve to know why it bothers you so much if your sons find out I’m interested in you.”

It seemed obvious to her. “Because it might cause upset in the pack.”

“You mean your grown sons might have to face the fact their mother is a beautiful, vibrant, and sexual woman.” Mikhail pushed out of his seat and came to kneel on the floor in front of her. He rested his hands on either side of her. The heat from his big body surrounded her. She felt both safe and threatened.

“Yes. No. I don’t know.” She buried her face in her hands. “I’ve never been a sexual woman before.” Brutal honesty seemed to be her only option. “I don’t know how I feel.”

Teaser Tuesday: Stefan's Salvation

Here's a teaser from Stefan's Salvation, book 3 of the Dalakis Passion vampire series. Stefan is one of those characters who was nothing like I thought he'd be. The youngest of the Dalakis brothers, I'd planned for him to be the lighthearted one. Yeah, that didn't work out at all. Stefan is the most intense, most brooding one of the bunch. 

A vampire walked into a bar.

Stefan Dalakis smiled inwardly as he pulled open the weathered wooden door and walked into the dimly lit bar, leaving the dark of night behind him. It amused him to wonder what the patrons would think if they only knew what walked among them.

But there was no joke to follow the opening line.

The door banged solidly shut behind him and every head in the place turned his way. They all eyed him suspiciously. His gaze swept the room, cataloguing each patron in turn. Even though the room was poorly lit and he was wearing mirrored sunglasses, he saw everything. His vision was many times greater than any human’s and there was no place on Earth where it was so dark that he could not see.

He knew very well what they saw as they stared at him. At six-foot-six, he was a tall man, but he was heavily muscled as well, which gave the illusion that he was even bigger. The long black leather duster he wore was open, revealing a black linen shirt and a pair of black jeans. He pushed his long black hair back over his shoulders and ignored the barely veiled looks of mistrust aimed in his direction as he ambled toward the bar. His boot heels scuffed across a scarred plank floor that had obviously seen better days.
The bartender eyed him uncertainly as Stefan came to a halt in front of him.

Tuesday Teaser: Past Promises

Here's a teaser from Past Promises, part of my Jamesville contemporary romance series.

He stood just behind her. Watching. Waiting.

She had no idea how long he’d been there. It should have been impossible for a man his size to sneak up on her. At six-and-a-half feet tall, Levi Mann took up a lot of space. His body was massive, but it was all solid muscle. There wasn’t an ounce of fat on the man.

He was wearing his usual uniform of jeans and a T-shirt. The faded denim clung to his thick thighs like a second skin. The soft cotton of the shirt molded to his biceps and chest, leaving little to the imagination.

And she had imagined him. A lot.

Lying in bed late at night, Linda had wondered more than once what it would feel like to touch all that sculpted muscle. She knew what it looked like. Levi had helped her with much of the renovation work on the building, as well as the painting, often removing his shirt while he worked. She’d lost count of the number of times she’d stopped painting just to stare at him while he was working. Levi gave new meaning to the phrase abs of steel. His tanned flesh looked as though it was pulled tight over slabs of muscle.

And the man was just as potent from behind. He had wide shoulders that tapered down to his thick waist, the muscles making a perfect V. His butt was first class all the way.

“Linda?” The way he said her name gave her shivers. “Are you okay?”
Oh, God. She was standing here like a ninny, staring at him again. “I’m fine.”

Weekend Book Club--The Thief by J.R. Ward

THE THIEF by J.R. Ward is the latest installment in her Black Dagger Brotherhood (BDB) series.

Honestly, she's one of the few authors I'll pay the hardcover price for an ebook when it's released. I just can't wait.

THE THIEF delivers everything you want from a BDB book. Sola and Assail's story finally has a conclusion, but in typical Ward fashion, there are more surprises and hints about the stories to come.


Sola Morte, former cat burglar and safecracker, has given up her old life on the wrong side of the law. On the run from a drug lord’s family, she is lying low far from Caldwell, keeping her nose clean and her beloved grandmother safe. Her heart, though, is back up north, with the only man who has ever gotten through her defenses: Assail, son of Assail, who never meant to fall in love—and certainly not with a human woman. But they have no future, and not just because she doesn’t know he is a vampire, but because he is not about to stop dealing arms to the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Fate, however, has other plans for them. When Assail falls into a coma and lingers on the verge of death, his cousins seek out Sola and beg her to give him a reason to live. The last thing she wants is a return to her past, but how can she leave him to die?

As a lethal new enemy of the vampires shows its face, and the Brotherhood needs Assail back on his feet, Sola finds herself not only a target, but a mission-critical force in a war she doesn’t understand. And when Assail’s truth comes out, will she run from the horror . . . or follow her heart into the arms of the male who loves her more than life itself?

Wolf Wednesday--Featuring Anny and Armand from Wolf in her Bed.
She started to pull away, but he kept his hands tight against her back, imprisoning her in the circle of his brawny arms. “Stay. Please.”
It was the sincerity in his voice that made her stop trying to get away from him. “Dance with me, Anny.”
Common sense told her to thank him for the dance and walk away. It was time for her to go home. Like Cinderella at the ball, the clock was ticking away and this wasn’t real. But she was no Cinderella and he certainly wasn’t any Prince Charming. He looked more like he’d be the villain in any fairytale, yet she was drawn to him.
“Just one more,” he coaxed.
Wolf in her Bed
Salvation Pack, Book 2
Anny Conrad is a thirty-year-old single librarian, She knows she’s a bit of a cliché—she even has the two cats to prove it—so when Mr. Tall, Dark, and Dangerous asks her for a dance, she throws caution to the wind and indulges in what she’s sure will be one night of spectacular passion with a man as rugged and untamed as a hero in one of the books she loves she read.
Armand LaForge and his small pack are fighting for their lives against the vicious Louisiana pack they broke away from. If timing is everything, this is the worst possible time to meet his mate—especially a human mate. But now that he’s found her, he can’t let her go, even though dragging her into his world means she’s a target now, too.

Weekend Book Club--Arynn's Chosen Mate by Elle Boon

ARYNN'S CHOSEN MATE: BAD ALPHA DADS by Elle Boon is the 8th book in her Iron Wolves MC series.

Elle Boon creates a vivid world filled with dangerous, compelling men and smart, sassy women. There is plenty of heat between Arynn and Sheila, but there is so much heart. Another wonderful addition to her Iron Wolves MC series.


They say blood is thicker than water, but a bond that’s chosen is stronger than steel. Nothing and nobody can sever those that are forged between ones chosen family.

They say love hurts. For a shifter who thinks he’s lost it all, it’s more than just a saying, it’s a reality. When Arynn is finally reunited with his daughter and finds the one woman created just for him, he swears love does hurt, but it’s a feeling he would give his life to experience.

Family is supposed to love and cherish one another. Sheila never had that growing up. When she became a mother of not just her own child, but her twin sister’s as well, she vows to love them more than she’d ever experienced.

When you find love that’s worth fighting for, you grab it and hold on tight. Families don’t always have to be blood, sometimes ones that are chosen are even more special as they are forged in love, instead of duty.

Can Arynn and Sheila along with their two girls finally find peace as a family, or will the darkness from their past destroy the goodness they’re creating?

Warning: Contains a sexy hero who feels EVERYTHING and a heroine who loves him even more. Lots of growly men, a crazy Fey Queen and her wolpires. Oh and HELLBOY. #DONTLOOKDOWN

WOLF WEDNESDAY--Wolf in her Soul

It's WOLF WEDNESDAY--Meet Reece Gallagher from Wolf in her Soul.

Wolf in her Soul
Salvation Pack, Book 8

Detective Reece Gallagher has spent the last decade working as a cop in Chicago so he can search for her—the red-haired woman who haunts his dreams. He’s just about ready to give up and go home to Salvation, North Carolina, when he finally finds her. But she’s the assault victim on a case he’s working on, and there’s a full-blooded werewolf who wants her dead. He needs to keep her safe and convince her she’s his mate.

Hannah Burdette has a secret she’s never told anyone. But there is someone who knows who—or rather, what—she is. There’s a stalker after her who plans to rid the world of her “impure” blood. When the cop she meets turns out to be a werewolf and claims she doesn’t have to be alone anymore, she’s wary. But where better to hide from a bloodthirsty hunter than in the middle of North Carolina with the security of a pack surrounding her?

Throwback Thursday--Mark of the Bear

Throwback Thursday--Mark of the Bear. I have to say that Marko is one of my favorite characters. I just love him to death.
Reason tried to intervene. This wasn’t real. Couldn’t be real. Men did not turn into bears, especially not giant bears, the kind that hadn’t existed since ancient times. Impossible. She had to be dreaming or possibly drugged. Yeah, she was hallucinating.

Unfortunately, that realization didn’t help her out at the moment. There was still a big-ass bear in front of her, his warm breath puffing like smoke from his nostrils when it hit the cool night air. Maybe she wasn’t dreaming after all. Maybe this was real.
Mark of the Bear
 Hades’ Carnival, Book 2

Kellsie Morris knows her career as a Hollywood scream queen won’t last forever. Luckily, she’s just landed a big role in a movie about an immortal, shape-shifting warrior trapped in a carnival run by the Devil’s minions. When the carousel bear on set shifts into a flesh and bone bear of a man, Kellsie starts to question reality.

When Marko is released from the curse that has kept him trapped in his animal form and lays eyes on Kellsie, he knows with every fiber of his being that his purpose is now to protect her no matter what.
But there’s no predicting the Devil’s next move in this game. Hades is determined to get his revenge on the escaped warrior, and going after Marko’s mate is seems like the perfect plan.

Weekend Book Club--What are you Afraid of? by Alexandra Ivy and Born of Darkness by Lara Adrian

What are you reading this week?

I read WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF? by Alexandra Ivy. Great plot and lots of suspense. Lots of twists and turns all the way to the end.


SHE’S LEARNED ALL ABOUT KILLERSThey aren’t the kind of women anyone misses. Truck-stop hookers, runaways . . . no one would even notice they’d disappeared if the killer didn’t photograph their lifeless bodies, posed in the back of a semi-trailer. Exactly like the infamous Trucker murders. But this isn’t just a copycat. It’s a vendetta.

NOW HE’LL TEACH HERCarmen Jacobs interviewed the world’s most terrifying serial killers for her bestselling book, The Heart of a Predator. The police might not believe her, but she knows there’s a monster out there, paying homage to other murderers. The only person who can predict where he’ll strike next is Griffin Archer—a reclusive software millionaire with ample reason not to help her.

HOW TO DIE . . .Carmen has charmed her way past Griffin’s defenses before. He didn’t intend to let it happen again. But with a psycho sending her trophies of his kills, he has no choice but to get involved. The clues point to a killer obsessed with Carmen—someone who knows her work, her past, her secrets. Someone who won’t be satisfied until he has made all her deepest fears come true . . .

I also read BORN OF DARKNESS by Lara Adrian. This is the first book in her Midnight Breed spinoff series--Midnight Breed Hunter Legacy. If you're a fan of her Midnight Breed series, this is a must read for you!


As a former assassin in the Hunter program, Asher is one of a small group of Gen One Breed vampires who survived the horrors of a madman's laboratory and the cruelty of the training that made him one of the most lethal beings in existence. Now, twenty years after his escape from those hellish origins, Asher is a loner whose heart is as cold as his skills are merciless. But when he thwarts a killing under way in the middle of the desert outside Las Vegas, Asher meets a beautiful woman who draws him into a deadly game against powerful enemies--one that will test both his skills and his tarnished honor.

Naomi Fallon is used to getting out of dicey situations. Orphaned as a child after her mother's murder, she didn't survive twenty-six years on the street without using up most of her nine lives. But when her latest caper lands her in the Mojave against a Vegas gangster's henchmen, she's certain her number is up. Then he appears--immense, brutal, and far from human. Naomi's never needed anyone's help, least of all one of the Breed. But after one risk too many, only a man with Asher's skills can keep her safe. Yet the solitary, seductively handsome vampire has enemies of his own, and a secret that will not only shatter her faith in him but her heart, proving what she's feared all along--that trust is only an illusion and love may be the sharpest weapon of all.
