Snarkology Halloween Hop 2016

Welcome to the Snarkology 2016 Halloween Hop!

A Mate's Forgiving Touch -  A Black Hills Wolves Story

A Mate's Forgiving Touch is my fourth contribution to the Black Hills Wolves multi-author series and features the long awaited story of Connor, the third Burrows siblings. We first met Connor in December 2015 when he played a key role in his brother Caleb's story - A Mate's Healing Touch and readers have been begging me for Connor's story since then. He also played a small but significant role in his twin sister Caitlyn's story - A Mate's Redeeming Touch . The Burrows family also feature in Mating Dance - this story focuses on the siblings uncle Sander and readers love it because the couple featured are in their fifties.

Here's the blurb for A Mate's Forgiving Touch

A wolf on the run
Tired of running from the past, Connor Burrows is working his way home to Los Lobos. He knows he needs to face his family and finally come to terms with the horrors of their shared past. When he stops in the small town of Franklin, the last thing he expects to find is a lone wolf who smells like perfection and takes no prisoners. 

Trapped by the beast inside
Bailey Clarke is a freak of nature, her father has told her so since she was a little girl. Hiding the beast inside grows harder every day. When a handsome, charming, infuriating stranger rides into town, he threatens to destroy the carefully constructed walls she uses to protect herself, and everyone else around her.

A man on a mission
Connor is determined to claim Bailey as his mate. His dominant nature loves the challenge this sparky little wolf presents both in and out of bed. He won’t let anything stand between them – not her father, and certainly not Bailey’s own fears and doubts. 

Tamed by the wolf within
Bailey sees what her life could be, if she can only learn to trust for the first time in her life. Before she can accept Connor as her mate, she will have to repair the broken bond between herself and her wolf. Will her secrets destroy their chance at happiness?

A race against time
Newly mated, Connor and Bailey find themselves in a fight for their lives. Family ties will prove their deadliest threat and their greatest salvation.

Are you ready to meet Nikolas and Quinn?

A Handful of Ashes


Nikolas Lansing jabbed the button on the passenger door handle and stuck his head out of the window the moment it lowered far enough. The cool night air rushed over his face and he took the first deep breath he’d managed in hours. Closing his eyes, he willed the bite of the wind to cleanse his senses. An exercise in futility, but he had to try and wash the scent of Quinn from his nose before he did something stupid. Like kiss her.

They’d been stuck in her flash little sports car for hours. He ground his teeth. They’d left his SUV in the driveway at home which made no sense to him at all. Mind you, nothing about Quinn made sense to him these days. From the day she’d walked into his life as a tear-stained and nervous five-year-old, Nikolas’ heart had beat only for the new princess of the Brighton pack. His lips twisted in a bitter smile. Quinn was Beauty to his Beast, but their life together had been more nightmare than fairy tale. The tension between them now stretched so tight, he feared what would happen when it finally broke. Nothing good, for sure. They might share the last name, but of the four children claimed by Clark Lansing, the recently deceased alpha of the Brighton pack, only Quinn and Troy shared a blood connection.

Recently deceased. Nik winced. Hell of a pretty way to describe mutiny and fratricide. They’d each had their own reasons for doing it, but all four of them had Clark’s blood on their hands. Troy to save his new mate and her pack; Quinn for Troy’s sake; Dutton, well who knew why Dut did anything? Whatever his reasons, he carried the burden of alpha now, and good luck to the poor bastard. As for Nik, he carried the weight of so many sins on his soul, another death meant nothing. Even that of the only man he’d called father.

Tears stung the corners of his closed eyes. It’s the cold wind, that’s all. He wasn’t crying over the man who’d twisted him into a personal weapon. The alpha’s hammer. A tool wielded indiscriminately by Clark to punish whichever unfortunate wolf drew his wrath. Nikolas had threatened, maimed, and killed, at his father’s whim, bound by a blood oath sworn before he’d been old enough to understand the implications. Clark had told him the oath would make him proud, and the foolish boy he’d once been leapt at the chance. 

“There’s a motel not far ahead, we can stop there for the night.” Quinn’s sultry voice curled around him like a cat seeking affection and his efforts to mentally distance himself from her shattered into pieces. Clark had noted his connection to the sandy-haired little cub and made him pay for it every day. “Unnatural,” the alpha’s voice whispered in his head any time his thoughts strayed in her direction. “She’s your sister.”

“Whatever. You’re the boss.” Dutton had put Quinn in charge of their mission to Nantahala, and Nik had no problem with that. They’d been working together for months, helping their new alpha reach out to the disparate packs who fell under the control of Brighton. Who took the lead depended on the nature of the pack, and that of their incumbent leadership. Some responded to a show of strength, others to diplomacy and negotiation. Nik wasn’t a man of words and delicate persuasion.

A thread of irritation teased his nose. “Whatever’s crawled up your ass, Niko, you’d better get your head on straight before we reach Nantahala. Dutton needs Tyler McKay onside.”

She was right. Brighton’s territory stretched across an impressive number of the Southern states and McKay’s pack sat slap-bang in the middle of it. The repercussions of their mission would ripple out, affecting the decisions of others in the surrounding states. They’d made a point of waiting to approach him, targeting those packs deemed most likely to disintegrate following Clark’s death. He’d held his territory in an iron fist for decades and his demise risked creating a vacuum. Dutton had pulled together his network of spies and sent out the word—he wanted Brighton to hold, but no one would be forced to stay. The new alpha wanted allies, not subordinates.

Leaving McKay and his pack had been a clear message from Dutton that he trusted Tyler could hold his people together without assistance. They might have left him alone for longer had the Nantahala leader not reached out himself. Nikolas ground his teeth at the audacity of the man. “I would like to propose an alliance,” he’d written in his letter to Dutton.

Nik wanted to propose his own alliance between the end of his boot and the cocky bastard’s ass.

He pulled his head back inside the car, but left the window open. Turning to study Quinn’s profile, he addressed her in the lazy, Southern drawl she hated. “You’re lookin’ tired, sweets. Restin’ up before you meet your new beau might be a wise idea.”

Her head snapped around, and she bared her teeth in a snarl. “I can do a lot worse than Tyler McKay.”

She had a point there. The Nantahala alpha hadn’t been alone in making overtures toward Quinn. Any wolf with an ounce of ambition and a pair of eyes in his head would relish the opportunity to claim the pack princess as mate. They both knew she wasn’t referring to the other approaches she’d received though.

Not going to happen, sweets.

His wolf raked its claws through his guts. As far as the beast inside was concerned, Quinn belonged to them. He ignored the pain. He’d sworn another oath—a private one—to protect her against anything; including him. Especially him. She needed a decent man at her side, not someone who shared the same fucked-up history.

“He certainly thinks highly of himself.” Nik knew he should keep his mouth shut, but doing the right thing was proving a damn sight harder than he’d bargained for. Stopping at the motel would be a good idea. He needed to get out of the confines of the car and put some space between them.

“I know it doesn’t come easy to you, but try not to be an asshole for once in your life,” she snapped.
Nikolas rested his head back against the seat and closed his eyes again. “I am what I am, sweets.”

She growled low in her throat, and the rough sound sent blood rushing to his cock. “I fucking hate you when you get like this,” she hissed.

No you don’t.

And that was the goddamn problem. 


The rage pulsing in her veins almost caused Quinn to miss the turnoff for the motel. Cursing Niko under her breath, she wrenched the wheel, sending the sports car bouncing down the approach road in a shower of gravel. Ping! Ping! She clenched her jaw at the sound of stones hitting the bodywork of her beloved Corvette and eased her foot on the gas. It wouldn’t be Nikolas’ fault if the paintwork got damaged, but she blamed him anyway.

One way or another, everything was his fault. If he’d just stop watching her with those big, soulful gray eyes; stop putting that powerful body of his between her and any potential danger; stop smelling so damn good she wanted to strip them both naked and rub all over him like a bitch in heat.

She steered the car to a halt in front of the squat looking office in the center of the horse-shoe of buildings, and pushed open her door. He was there before she could blink, holding out his hand to help her, using his bulk as a shield. Their palms slid together, sending a jolt through her, just like every time they touched. This has to stop. For her own sanity, if nothing else, she had to stop letting him crawl beneath her skin.

“You should wait in the car, while I check us in,” he said, blocking her attempts to step around him.

“You should stop treating me like I’m helpless. Unless you’re angling for the edge of my claws, Niko.” The look he gave her said he wouldn’t be averse to the idea, but he merely grunted and strode toward the office, leaving her trailing in his wake.

A couple of the other buildings had vehicles in front of them, but a pair of adjoining chalets were free at the far left of the row. The proprietor barely glanced up from the small television showing a lively Hispanic soap opera as Nikolas handed over enough cash to cover both rooms for the night.

Quinn prowled around the small reception area, focusing on the plastic pot plants, the generic prints hanging lopsided on the walls, the tired pair of chairs and the out of date magazines scattered across a chipped table. Focused on anything other the burning desire to plant her fist in his kidneys. Or rip the shirt from his back and rake the thick muscle she knew lay beneath it.

“Why don’t you move the car and I’ll be there in a minute, sweets?” Nik drawled over his shoulder.

She hated that goddamn nickname. Hated. It. He only used it when he was trying to goad her. Her inability to ignore it added to the tangled mess of emotions knotting in her gut. Don’t respond, don’t respond, don’t… “Why don’t you get on your knees and kiss my ass?”

A sub-vocal growl reached her ears and a pair of bright-gold wolf’s eyes met her own. “The only part of me that’s going to touch your ass is the palm of my hand.”

Quinn took an involuntary step back. In all their years, Nikolas had never threatened to strike her. Clenching her fist so as not to raise her hand to the heat burning her cheeks, she bit her lip. A vivid image filled her head of being tumbled over his broad thighs while his big, calloused hand swatted the naked cheeks of her backside until they glowed red. Liquid pooled in her belly, a tug of arousal she shouldn’t feel, but couldn’t suppress. Nik growled again, the deep rumble adding to the shivers raising down her spine.

“You sure you two don’t want to share a room?” The proprietor didn’t look up from her television, but there was no missing the big grin on her face.

“No!” They snapped in unison, turning the air sour with the odor of their lies. She had to get out of there.

Quinn hurried out the door, if she moved fast enough she could get behind the wheel and hit the highway before he realized it. Solid heat walled her back, trapping her against the car and she melted into him. Sandalwood and sharp spice swirled around her and she breathed deep, dragging his essence into her lungs. “Niko—”

His lips brushed the column of her neck. “This is no good, Quinn. I’m no good,” he murmured, but the feather-light kisses didn’t stop.

She pressed her head back against his shoulder, giving him better access to the sensitive skin at the base of her throat. “Maybe I’m no good either, Niko. Did you ever consider that?”

“You’re everything good in this world, sweetheart. If I can’t save you then there’s no point to any of this.”

Wriggling around in the tight hold he had on her was a challenge, but Quinn was no delicate flower. Wolf as much as woman, she used her strength to turn in his arms and face him. “I don’t need you to save me, Niko, I can do that for myself.”

He brushed a stray curl from her cheek, continuing the movement until his hand clasped the nape of her neck. Such bright pain shone in his eyes, it was a relief when he drew her close until their foreheads rested together. “Don’t take that from me, Quinn. It’s all I have. I don’t deserve your pleasure.”

“Then give me your pain, Niko.”

#NewRelease - Fae Haven 1: A Year and a Day

First of all, a huge thank you to Merryn for hosting me today! I’m super excited to be here, talking about my newest release with my co-author, Jenny Urban. And this release is extra special, since it’s the first one in our brand new series. Jenny and I love this world—the magic, the romance, the drama and the comedy…all of it. Honestly, we just want to live there. Then again, if I told you that there was a world just like ours, only where magical beings like fae walked among us, you’d probably want to live there too.

Fae Haven is about the fictional town of Haven City, Utah, all the way up in the northeast corner of the state. It’s got a real small-town feel, despite the college campus, and seems to have a strangely high concentration of residents who are not what they seem. Somehow, they seem to operate under the radar, so when folklore graduate student Ben meets Niall, a fae who’s been counting down the days until he gets to go home again, he has no reason to suspect anything is wrong.

I’ve always wanted to write a story where wizardry and the modern world come together, and so has Jenny. We’ve always loved books, movies and TV shows that bring the supernatural a little closer to us, and we’ve always admired the creators of those worlds. Now that it’s our turn to bring a universe of magic to life, we’ve been having an absolute ball with it.

Fae Haven 1: A Year and a Day


Reserved, bookish Ben isn’t looking for a relationship. Then he meets Niall, a gorgeous stranger with a knack for avoiding direct questions, and tumbles headfirst into love. Niall is perfect in just about every way, right up until he leaves town for a short trip...and vanishes off the face of the earth.

A magical being trapped in his own realm, Niall has to fight to come back to this world for the chance to be with Ben. But by the time he gets back, more than a year has passed, and Ben refuses to believe Niall’s story of Fae and magic.

With only a month to woo Ben back and earn a chance at staying here permanently, Niall is willing to try anything to be with the man he loves. Then Niall’s world spills over into ours and puts Ben’s life in danger, forcing them to work together to save Ben before their stolen time comes to an end.

The more time Shadow spends with him, the more she's beginning to think that maybe she is the most terrifying thing hiding—and hunting—in the dark.

Wolf Torn by Marissa Farrar  

Ruby Callaghan might be the alpha’s niece, but that doesn’t mean she wants everyone else controlling her life. At twenty years old, she is young and free, though she’s been spending time with fellow pack-mate, Joel Golding.

But her alpha has other ideas. To secure the future of the Dark Ridge wolves, he orders her mating to one of the Golding brothers.

The wrong brother.

At twenty-eight, with his massive build and long, dark hair, Ruby has only ever thought of beta wolf, Holton Golding, as a brute. The thought of being his mate horrifies her, but she loves her pack. Should she agree with her uncle’s plans, or will other events threaten the security of the Dark Ridge wolves?

Untamed Lord of Thessaly by Rachael Slate  

With one whisper, sultry nymph Ekho can compel anyone to her bidding. Except the wild and unbroken centaur Lord Petraeus, who makes a command of his own—the complete surrender of her body, soul, and heart.

Bear Faced Lies by Merryn Dexter

A roaming bear gathers no strings, and that’s just how Tobias Langstreet likes it. A chance meeting with beautiful, lonely Harriet Mills might just change his mind. Can he trust her with his secrets and unwrap the web of lies around her?

Tobias wrenched the wheel, returning them to the smooth tarmac surface. Harriet forced herself to look away, staring at her own reflection in the dark window beside her, the view beyond swallowed by the still night.

The truck jolted again, and she started around, shocked to see Tobias steering them onto the dusty verge. His hands flexed on the steering wheel a couple of times before he jabbed at the release mechanism of his seat belt. “This is a really bad idea,” he muttered, eyes still fixed on the blank windshield before him.

“What is?” She knew what he meant though. Even before he lunged across the cab to grab her in a fierce embrace that stole her breath. She knew, she might even agree with him, but it didn’t stop her opening her mouth to the demanding press of his tongue.

He swept inside her lips, sucking and feasting on her mouth, stealing her breath until she saw stars. She didn’t push him back though. The banked arousal simmering in her belly roared to life, and she threw her arms around his neck, pulling him closer, needing to feel the heavy weight of his body against hers. He cursed, fumbled at her side to release the belt constricting her, then lifted her up, dragging her across his lap as though she weighed nothing.

Harriet squirmed, tried to get closer to where she wanted to be, to get the thick length of him notched into the ache between her legs, but the tight skirt of her dress stopped her. “I hate this damn dress,” she snarled against his lips, and he laughed through their kiss. The pleasant rumble of his chest rubbed her nipples through their clothing and she gasped.

“I’m a big fan of your dress, sweetheart, but it does have some drawbacks.” Tobias grabbed the bottom hem and rent the fabric in two, splitting the seam to her waist.

Free at last, she scrambled into his lap, knocking her head on the roof of the truck in the process. “Damn!” The smile fell from his lips and he held her still. She could read the concern in his eyes and was having none of it. “I swear, Tobias. If you tell me not here, not now, I’m going to scream.”

A strange light glowed in his eyes, a flash of the eerie brightness she’d glimpsed earlier. It sent her heart pounding, part fear, part arousal at the hunger burning there.

Today, Dee is a best-selling, award-winning author of over thirty novels and novellas, including those penned by her erotica writing alter ego, Morgan Sierra.

Dee Tenorio is an award-winning author with a few reality issues. After much therapy for the problem—if one can call being awakened in the night by visions of hot able-bodied men a problem—she has proved incurable. It turns out she enjoys tormenting herself by writing sizzling, steamy romances of various genres spanning paranormal mystery dramas, contemporaries and romantic comedies. Preferably starring the sexy, somewhat grumpy heroes described above and smart-mouthed heroines who have much better hair than she does.

Later, she settled into a polar opposite lifestyle from the one she’d been living by moving abroad to further her education. Despite the frigid climate, the fast pace existence melded in, making her a person who is adaptable and enjoys experiencing the diversity surrounding her. While traveling, she researches and writes erotica and erotic romances. 

Jodi Redford ~ Imaginary superhero. Lover of waffles and bacon. Scribe of erotic romance novels. A few of her readers have officially nicknamed her the Mistress of Naughtiness.

When not writing or working the day job, she enjoys gardening and way too many reality television shows. Jodi loves to hear from readers! 

Quinn has perfected the art of procrastination. She has a “healthy” obsession with reading and writing Romance, and an unhealthy addiction to red wine, bourbon, and dark chocolate with sea salt.

Allie Cooke - Indie author and die-hard Southern girl, has been reading and writing romance since she was old enough to hold a crayon, so a future as a romance writer wasn’t very farfetched for her. From billionaires to blue collar, from CEO to sexy entrepreneur, whether they’re wearing jeans or suits, Allie’s always had a thing for hot, hunky Alphas who need to be saved from themselves…Usually with the help of the right woman. When she’s not writing, editing, or reading. Allie can be found cooking up mayhem in the kitchen or catching up on the latest and greatest TV shows with her favorite man.

Dawn Montgomery is a USA Today bestselling author. She loves to write almost as much as she loves to read. She has traveled the world twice over. While her days were filled with long hours and hard work, her nights were left for dark, lustful fantasies in and out of strange hotels and cities. Alaska and Texas are the places she calls home. She recently moved from the frigid North to Texas with her family and neurotic dog. It was tragic to leave behind the moose and bear for wide open plains and sexy cowboys.

Merryn Dexter is a military spouse who, after a varied employment career (from selling sandals to old ladies with bunions to being a health and safety coordinator for a construction company), is thrilled to be pursuing her dream career as a romance writer. She likes The Winchesters, Spike, Hotch, Loki and watching complicated European Noir. Her hobbies include crying at books, crying at movies, crying at t.v. series (there’s a theme!) and believes all stories should have a Happy Ending.

Kathryn Lively is an award-winning writer and editor, Whovian, and Rush (the band) fan. She loves chocolate and British crisps and is still searching for a good US dealer of Japanese Kit Kat bars. She is the author of FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED from Totally Bound Publishing.

Lexxie Couper started writing when she was six and hasn’t stopped since. She’s not a deviant, but she does have a deviant’s imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get romances that can make you laugh, cry, shake with fear, or tremble with desire. Sometimes all at once. When she’s not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie’s life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she’s insane, an indoor cat who likes to stalk shadows, and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever.

Two Weeks To Go! #Preorder A MATE'S FORGIVING TOUCH @MerrynDexter @DecadentPub

A Mate’s Forgiving Touch
Black Hills Wolves #57
By Merryn Dexter
Releasing October 28th 2016

A wolf on the run
Tired of running from the past, Connor Burrows is working his way home to Los Lobos. He knows he needs to face his family and finally come to terms with the horrors of their shared past. When he stops in the small town of Franklin, the last thing he expects to find is a lone wolf who smells like perfection and takes no prisoners.

Trapped by the beast inside

Bailey Clarke is a freak of nature, her father has told her so since she was a little girl. Hiding the beast inside grows harder every day. When a handsome, charming, infuriating stranger rides into town, he threatens to destroy the carefully constructed walls she uses to protect herself, and everyone else around her.

A man on a mission
Connor is determined to claim Bailey as his mate. His dominant nature loves the challenge this sparky little wolf presents both in and out of bed. He won’t let anything stand between them – not her father, and certainly not Bailey’s own fears and doubts.

Tamed by the wolf within
Bailey sees what her life could be, if she can only learn to trust for the first time in her life. Before she can accept Connor as her mate, she will have to repair the broken bond between herself and her wolf. Will her secrets destroy their chance at happiness?

A race against time
Newly mated, Connor and Bailey find themselves in a fight for their lives. Family ties will prove their deadliest threat and their greatest salvation.

“What’s your story, little wolf? You smell so delicious, I’m half out of my mind for you, and yet there’s no trace of pack on you. No scent of any male on your skin either, which is good because I’d hate to have to kill someone for touching what is mine.” Such dark, violent words should have disgusted her, but they didn’t. They spoke to the animal instincts she’d battled against her whole life.
He used the word so casually, as though shifting from human to beast was perfectly natural. Nothing to be ashamed of, not the dirty secret she’d been raised to see it as. “What are you?” She gasped, but, in her heart, she already knew.
He gripped her chin in a fierce hold, twisting her neck to the edge of pain so he could stare her in the eye. “I am a wolf, the same as you. A member of the Tao pack. We reside deep in the Black Hills.” His eyes narrowed, the cool gray darkening to charcoal. “You must recognize one of your own. My wolf knows yours, lover. Knows you are our mate.”
She wrenched her chin from his bruising hold, bracing her hands against the edge of her desk. She shoved hard until the huge antique piece scraped against the burnished wooden floor. The gap she created offered an escape route, and she leapt away from the decadent heat of his body. The scent, the feel of him scrambled her brains. She held out her hand to ward him off when he started to approach. “Stay back, just stay back and let me think, goddammit!” His eyes fixed on her heaving chest as she panted, and she snapped her fingers angrily. “Hey! My face is up here!”
A slow, lazy, grin curled his plump lips, drawing her attention to their softness. They were the only soft-looking thing about him. His big body looked carved of pure muscle, his thick arms and legs straining the seams of his clothing. He had a presence about him, too, a surety and confidence in the way he held himself. She found his arrogance equal parts annoying and delicious.
