Teaser Tuesday--Wolf of her Own



Teaser Tuesday--Wolf of her Own
 
“You have beautiful hair.” His big body shuddered as he feathered a hank of it across his chest. She’d never thought of her hair as being sensual. Yet having Mikhail touch it was bringing her pleasure, and it was obvious how much he was enjoying himself.
 
“I like it when you touch it.” She licked her lips and tried to find the right words to explain. “The bad memories are still there. But I want to replace them with good ones. Will you do that for me?”
 
“Anything.” Mikhail kissed her forehead and her lips before sliding his fingers across her scalp in a sensual caress. “Whatever you want. Whatever you need.”

Read Lights Out in The Expanding Universe #SpaceOpera #NewRelease by @KayelleAllen

What if today was "lights out?"

Read Lights Out in The Expanding Universe #SpaceOpera #NewRelease by @KayelleAllen



If you knew this was your last day to live, what would you do?

Would you face the end with a clear conscience? Would you fight for one more day?

Look for that person you wronged and make it right? Run away? Turn and fight? What would you do?

In Lights Out by Kayelle Allen, the hero knows his end is near. Instead of running, Tornahdo makes a choice. He will face death with a clear conscience and the knowledge that his death will serve mankind. He will join... GHOST CORPS


He can save mankind. After he does one important thing. Die.

Join the Ghost Corps, they said. You'll live forever, they said. You'll save mankind, they said. They didn't say that to do it, first he had to die.

When Tornahdo signs on the dotted line, he puts his life into the steady hands of the mighty Ghost Corps. Three grisly deaths and three agonizing resurrections later, he's assigned duty on Enderium Six.

He's facing his most dangerous mission yet, the very reason the corps exists. Do they expect him to win? Fat chance. Tornahdo and his team are already dead and this mission is codenamed "Lights Out."

No, there's more to this than he can see. To discover the truth, he must face an unbeatable, unkillable enemy, and this time--somehow--find a way to keep himself alive...

Excerpt, Lights Out by Kayelle Allen

 
The air reeked of antiseptic and starch stiffened the pillowcase. If only the mind-numbing jabbering would stop. Tornahdo pried open his eyes. The flattened blood bag above him, stenciled equipment and gray walls screamed military hospital.

He'd died. Again.

Spanish curses slipped out. His abuela would've taken a switch to him. He made the sign of the cross and kissed his fingertips. After yanking the tube out of his arm, he pressed a thumb over the entry point.

Thankfully, this time, he wasn't writhing on the floor in agony. Well, not yet.

A faceless android in a Ghost Corps uniform loomed over a bank of equipment displaying Tornahdo's name and vitals. First impression was right. Military hospital.

The weapons-grade yapping continued.

"Did you hear?" a youthful voice bragged. "He killed six of 'em last night."

"Yeah, but they don't stay dead. They never do."

"If Ultras didn't come back to life, their plasma wouldn't bring our own people back."

The transfusion of enemy blood healed the hole in Tornahdo's arm in seconds. He thumbed off the red smear and rolled over on the gurney.

An open door led to a sink and toilet built to let gravity do its work. Which meant this was a planet. You hadn't lived until you were in space, floating in zero gravity while your body's final twitches sent your corpse spinning.

Notices on the wall confirmed this was San Xavier in the Colonies of Man. Same place he'd bought it the first time.

This was getting old.

Weekend Book Club--In Darkness Transformed and Atone in Darkness by Alexis Morgan

Somehow I managed to miss the fact that Alexis Morgan had released two new Paladin book. So this past week, I read IN DARKNESS TRANSFORMED, The Paladin Strike Team Book 1 and ATONE IN DARKNESS, The Paladin Strike Team Book 2.

This is a unique series packed with plenty of action. Her Paladins are larger than life and ready to die to protect the world. The women who love them are just as strong and unique as they are. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

IN DARKNESS TRANSFORMED

Dying hurts…but not as much as living.

Eli is lucky to survive the helicopter crash that killed the rest of the passengers. But when he notices his wounds healing before his eyes, it seems like his survival may have come from more than luck.

Safara knows what Eli does not—Eli is a paladin, a mortal enemy of someone like Safara, someone from Kalithia.

Still, after Eli saves Safara’s life, and Safara introduces Eli to a whole new world, they just can’t seem to treat each as enemies.


ATONE IN DARKNESS

Brilliant doctor Marisol knows nothing about the mysterious man whose vitals she monitors and whose every move she's paid to track—other than the fact that he is brought to death's door each night by a squad of military grade thugs. She certainly can't ask the people who hired her. After all, they run this shady, hi-tech compound where she is now stranded, the only woman among huge, uniform-clad brutes.

Chase Mosely, Marisol's sole charge, knows nothing about who was behind his kidnapping, other than the fact that they want to know about his Paladin's ability to heal. Nor does he know anything about his pretty keeper, who seems to be working for the enemy, but still looks at him with compassion in her eyes.

Both held captive in a remote testing facility, their desperate stories intertwine. And, as they discover that they mean more to each other than they could ever have imagined, the two of them must find a way to escape, no matter the odds.

TEASER: DRAKON UNCHAINED

Victoria slid out from under his arm. “Do you have anything I can use? I’ve shot a handgun before, but not in a long time.” She nibbled on her bottom lip. “Maybe a knife too.”

Okay, was it wrong of him to get hard just thinking about her gearing up? It turned him on even as he wanted to howl at the fact she thought she needed to protect herself. He would protect her.

Bakra Bride is back!

Bakra Bride, the second book in the steamy Tapestries series, is available today! This book was published before but hasn't been available for a couple of years. I'm so glad it's back!

After witnessing a gruesome murder, Jane Smith has watched her life crumble around her. Her only solace is the stunning and mysterious tapestry she discovered at a thrift store. When the image stitched into the tapestry magically comes to life one night, Jane finds herself transported to a mystical Medieval world, where two massive warriors declare their intentions to cater to her every sensual desire.

Zaren and Bador are stunned to realize that the prophecy of the tapestry has come true and brought Jane to them. The brothers willingly accept their duty to indulge her in every possible form of passion. But Jane’s arrival has also attracted the attention of rival warriors, who will go to any lengths to steal her from the Bakra brothers and claim her as their own.

As Jane adjusts to this frightening but enthralling world, Zaren and Bador risk all to protect her—even as they use all their sexual skill, separately and together, to take her to unimagined sensual heights. Because the time for Jane to choose is drawing near, and the Bakra brothers must convince her to abandon her former life—and take one of them as her loving husband for all time . . .

Weekend Book Club--Hot and Badgered by Shelly Laurenston

I read HOT AND BADGERED by Shelly Laurenston when it was first released but forgot to post about it, but better late than never. I absolutely LOVE her writing. I've read all The Pride Series and the Call of Crows.

Hot and Badgered is the start of her Honey Bader Chronicles. If you haven't read any of her books, no worries. You can jump right in with this one. But if you've read her Pride series, you'll recognize many of the secondary characters.

If you love paranormal books that are quirky, funny, and smart with lots of action, you must read these books.

BLURB:

It’s not every day that a beautiful naked woman falls out of the sky and lands face-first on grizzly shifter Berg Dunn’s hotel balcony. Definitely they don’t usually hop up and demand his best gun. Berg gives the lady a grizzly-sized t-shirt and his cell phone, too, just on style points. And then she’s gone, taking his XXXL heart with her. By the time he figures out she’s a honey badger shifter, it’s too late.

Honey badgers are survivors. Brutal, vicious, ill-tempered survivors. Or maybe Charlie Taylor-MacKilligan is just pissed that her useless father is trying to get them all killed again, and won’t even tell her how. Protecting her little sisters has always been her job, and she’s not about to let some pesky giant grizzly protection specialist with a network of every shifter in Manhattan get in her way. Wait. He’s trying to help? Why would he want to do that? He’s cute enough that she just might let him tag along—that is, if he can keep up . . .

Throwback Thursday--Wolf on the Run

Wolf on the Run features one of my favorite heroes. I'm a sucker for the strong, silent type and Cole Blanchard certainly is that. He uses his great strength to protect his pack and those he loves. While he's a live and let live kind of guy, you don't want to get on his bad side. He's relentless when it comes to seeking justice and protecting those weaker than himself.



 
Wolf on the Run
Salvation Pack, Book 3

Cherise and her mother had to run from their pack when everyone realized Cherise couldn’t shift. Now her mother’s gone, murdered by the hunters after them, and Cherise is all alone and out of options. When the people she’s running from catch up to her in Salvation, North Carolina, she’s saved by the biggest, baddest werewolf she’s ever seen.

Disposing of the intruders on his pack’s land is easy for Cole, but convincing the skittish woman the trespassers were after that she’s safe is another story. He recognizes her as his mate right off, and he’ll protect her no matter what, even if it means risking everything to face her former pack.

Cherise never thought she’d find a wolf she could trust, but she’s never met a Salvation wolf before now, and her mate is not about to let anything come between them.

Weekend Book Club--Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean and An Affair with a Spare by Shana Galen

This past week was all about the historical romance and I read two wonderful books--Wicked and the Wallflower and An Affair with a Spare.

The first was Wicked and The Wallflower, the first book in the Bareknuckle Bastards series by Sarah Maclean. I love Sarah MacLean's books but I think she's outdone herself with this one--dark and dangerous with a heroine you will love. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

Next came An Affair with a Spare by Shana Galen. This book was delightful, complex, and a perfect addition to the series.


WICKED AND THE WALLFLOWER
Bareknuckle Bastards Book 1 by Sarah MacLean

BLURB:

When Wicked Comes Calling . . .
When a mysterious stranger finds his way into her bedchamber and offers his help in landing a duke, Lady Felicity Faircloth agrees—on one condition. She’s seen enough of the world to believe in passion, and won’t accept a marriage without it.
 
The Wallflower Makes a Dangerous Bargain . . .
Bastard son of a duke and king of London’s dark streets, Devil has spent a lifetime wielding power and seizing opportunity, and the spinster wallflower is everything he needs to exact a revenge years in the making. All he must do is turn the plain little mouse into an irresistible temptress, set his trap, and destroy his enemy.
 
For the Promise of Passion . . .
But there’s nothing plain about Felicity Faircloth, who quickly decides she’d rather have Devil than another. Soon, Devil’s carefully laid plans are in chaos and he must choose between everything he's ever wanted . . . and the only thing he's ever desired.


AN AFFAIR WITH A SPARE (The Survivors) by Shana Galen

BLURB:

He’s turned seduction into an art form…

Rafe Beaumont, fifth son of an earl, uses his irresistible charm with the ladies to glean dangerous war secrets. Now he’s putting those skills to the ultimate test: capturing an elusive assassin by seducing his daughter. The problem? She’s entirely immune to Rafe’s flattery.
 
Never before has Collette Fortier met a man as attractive as Rafe. But her father’s life is at stake, and succumbing to Rafe would be disastrous. But when Rafe turns the tables on her, offering support and friendship instead of a fleeting affair, Collette finds herself tempted in ways she never could have imagined…

Throwback Thursday--Wolf from the Past

While I love all my books--I wrote them after all--there are some that are special. One of those books is Wolf from the Past, book 4 of the Salvation Pack series. There is just something extra special about Gator Rollins. He's laidback for the most part, but make no mistake, he is one dangerous werewolf, especially when those he loves are threatened. And he can cook. He surprised me with that tidbit when I was writing the series. :-)


Wolf from the Past
Salvation Pack, Book 4

For years, everyone believed Sylvie LaForge Dubois was dead, and she worked hard to keep it that way. Now that her abusive, dangerous mate is dead, she’s come back to face everyone. But it’s harder than she thought it would be, especially when Gator Rollins watches her every move, making her uneasy and excited all at once. She never imagined she’d want another man, but her attraction to Gator is too strong to fight.
 
Before Gator had the chance to tell Sylvie how he felt about her, she was mated to someone else and then killed. Now she’s back, and there’s nothing he won’t do to protect her and get that second chance he never thought he’d have.

But Sylvie is in more danger than ever when her old pack learns she’s still alive And if they get to her, there’s no coming back from the dead twice.

Weekend Book Club--Coti's Unclaimed Mate by Elle Boon and Dark Warlord by Cynthia Sax

This week I'm featuring TWO books--COTI'S UNCLAIMED MATE by Elle Boon and DARK WARLORD by Cynthia Sax.


COTI'S UNCLAIMED MATE, the 8th book in Elle Boon’s Iron Wolves MC, has everything you expect from an Elle Boon book—sexy, dangerous heroes, sassy heroines, originality, action, and plenty of heat!

BLURB:

Will they find beauty in the ashes as the fire settles, or will they go up in flames?

Shifters and humans don’t mix, at least not in Coti’s opinion. He’s more than just a wolf though, but his pack and fellow MC brothers don’t know everything there is to know about him, and he likes to keep it that way…until one human female comes along and changes everything.

Renee, or NeNe to her friends hates her life. Well, she didn’t hate it so much when she could count on her friends, but one-by-one they began finding boyfriends, leaving her alone. Suddenly, she finds herself on the outside looking in. A girl from the wrong side of the tracks, she knows she needs to make a change or she’ll end up like her mother, dead.

A connection between two of the most unlikely people seemed written in the stars, but Coti isn’t ready to accept his fate, while NeNe doesn’t want a man who’s a brawler like her father. No, these two will fight their attraction, even if it kills them.

When a new group moves into town just outside of the Iron Wolves territory giving NeNe the opportunity to make extra cash in order to escape, she latches on with both hands. Only is the saying something’s too good to be true going to bite her in the rear, or will her savior come to the rescue? For Coti he can’t seem to shake off the need to keep one tiny human safe, even if it puts him in a perilous position of claiming the female for his own.

 


DARK WARLORD by Cynthia Sax is the fifth book in her Refuge series. It was originally part of a boxed set, but I bought it again because I like to be able to read it again as a stand-alone novella. I LOVE Cynthia Sax's aliens and can't wait for the next book in this series.

BLURB:

Battling the Barbarian...

All Chamele Warlords have a destined mate, a gerel they are fated to spend their lifespans with. Batu, being genetically enhanced, believes he's the sole exception. He devotes himself to battle, is resigned to living a solitary life, dying with swords in both of his hands.

Then he sees her.

Genine is a warrior female intent on protecting her loved ones. To keep them safe, she must face Fighter Batu in the ring. If she loses to the barbarian, she becomes his to do with as he wishes. And he wishes her to submit to his deep voice, rough touch, passionate kisses. If she defeats Batu, she will have to kill the one male she was destined to love.

This story was previously part of a box set.


Dark Warlord is a short companion story in the Refuge series and is meant to be read after Dark Flight.

It is a SciFi Romance set in a gritty, dark world.
