#NewRelease - A Mate's Redeeming Touch #shifters #BlackHillsWolves #PNR #EroticRomance

I can't believe we're finally here! What a roller-coaster ride it has been since we first met the Burrows family in December 2015. I'm thrilled to say that A Mate's Healing Touch is riding high in the All Romance Best Sellers Chart at #28 and you can still grab a copy for 99c/99p. Be quick because you've only got until April 1st to take advantage of this bargain offer.

What I'm really here to talk to you about today is the release of A Mate's Redeeming Touch. For those of you who have read my first book, this is Caitlyn's story and if there was ever anyone who was in need of a happy ending it was my darling omega wolf. I hope you think Ven is the mate she deserves. Even though their path is more than a little rocky, I promise you there is a Happy Ever After!


Ven Thorne is a lone wolf with a bad attitude caused by his difficult childhood. Forced to return to pack life, he is tasked with rebuilding the gas station on the outskirts of Los Lobos. Ven works for Ryker, the pack enforcer, and will act as sentinel and lookout when the station reopens.

Caitlyn Burrows has recently returned to Los Lobos with her family. A victim of Magnum Tao, the pack’s evil ex-Alpha, she is terrified of men and her natural omega nature is making it hard for her to make friends. Her family is determined to see Caitlyn happy.

A chance encounter between Ven and Caitlyn reveals they are mates, something that neither of them is happy about! He’s mean and angry; she’s timid and shy. Can two such opposites find common ground?

Caitlyn decides it is past time to take control of her life and is determined to prove to Ven that she is the mate that he needs. Can she make him see that the Fates are right and that their only chance of happiness is together or will the ghosts from the past keep them apart forever?

“I said, what do you want?” Ven sounded furious as he took a step towards her and Caitlyn shrank back, dropping the cooler as she raised her hands as though trying to ward him off. The box tipped over, spilling its contents across the scruffy lot and the man swore again. He stepped around the mess of food and drinks, advancing rapidly and she caught his scent, amber and dark wood beneath a layer of fresh sweat. Her wolf, normally so quiet, surged forward and she realized in terror that she was practically toe-to-toe with her mate. And he was mean and angry.

Knowing what it was to suffer at the hands of a cruel man, she turned tail and ran as fast as she could. She plunged towards the relatively safety of the trees, kicking off her shoes and dragging her clothes free as she fled. 

Her wolf was whining at her to stop, but she pushed on into the heavy brush. Pausing to shed her jeans, she crouched, letting the shift take her over but making sure she retained enough control to force the wolf to keep running. The wolf howled, desperate to turn back, to catch again the glorious scent of her mate and offer her throat in submission to his dominant presence. 

A heavy crash behind had her doubling her efforts and her paws scrabbled over the soft ground, seeking purchase as she ran as though the hounds of hell were on her heels. She risked a glance over her shoulder and an involuntary yip of fright loosed from her throat. An enormous gray wolf was gaining on her with every stride, the snarl on his face more terrifying than the scowl he’d worn in his human form.

She put on another burst of speed, her wolf suddenly in accordance that escape rather than submission was the best idea. Dodging around a massive pine tree, trunk broader than her back, she pulled up short at the remains of another fallen trunk that suddenly blocked her path. A snarl set her in motion again and her claws scratched at the bark as she desperately tried to clamber over the downed tree. The wood was soft, rotten in places and her front legs slid from under her as a huge set of jaws clamped around the thick fur at the back of her neck.

Author Spotlight with @Clare_Dargin #Shifter #Erotic #Romance #Giveaway

My #Werewolf's Character Was Inspired By An Angel by Clare Dargin #Shifter #Erotic #Romance 

Before I sat down to write Wolf's Blade, I had only one thing in mind, I wanted to write a werewolf romance novel.  My first in fact.  But who the character was, the events that made up the main hero's and heroine's life or the story's main conflict I had yet to figure out.

So I did what I always do in these situations, I stressed myself by worrying.  Yes sometimes I can be very neurotic. After pacing a deep groove into my carpet from pacing, I came to the realization that worrying was getting me nowhere. So I reluctantly set the project aside and began working on other things.

Then one day while I was watching my favorite paranormal show, I saw him.  There he was in all of his six foot something glory, the inspiration for my werewolf shifter character- who I'd later name Callum Blake.

The show in question was Supernatural.  I've been a fan for years and love the exploits character who are brothers-- Sam and Dean Winchester.  This particular season, season nine had a new character that added a sweet pathos to the story line, which in my opinion, had never been on the show before.

The character, known as Gadreel, was an angel who was charged with guarding the Garden of Eden.  But for some reason, either through carelessness or falling for the devil's trickery, he allowed Lucifer to enter the Garden which caused the fall of creation.  As a result, he was placed in heaven's jail and was released when a fellow angel, Castiel released him because Castiel became an unwitting pawn of another angel named Metatron dubious plans.

Anyways, Gadreel's storyline though brief, was powerful.  Not only because of the writing (which is always good on the show in my opinion) but through the acting of Tahmoh Penikett.  I must admit, I had never seen him before – though later on I found out he was a major character on the revamped Battlestar Galactica among other shows- he made me cry as well as cheer for his tortured and damaged character.

But being the good romance writer that I am, I had to admire his incredible good looks.  Six-foot-four, with a lean muscular build, broad shoulders and a narrow waist line, Gadreel/Tahmoh was walking sex.  I mean the guy was hot!

That's when I knew I found Callum Blake or at least the placeholder/image I could use in my mind as I wrote the book.  When I write, I usually I like to have a person in mind when I create the character and the world he lives in because it inspires me when I'm trying to think of facial expressions or when I'm just to trying to find out what the man or woman is thinking. 

Though Callum is a lot younger than Tahmoh the actor and much younger than Gadreel the angel, I made sure or at least try to make sure that Callum possessed the magnetic charm and sexy charisma that Tahmoh portrayed as Gadreel. I hope you enjoy reading Callum's story as much as I did writing it.

Now from my latest release Wolf's Blade-


Samantha Dixon rescues a wounded wolf shifter in the woods near her home … and unwittingly gets drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a murderer. Callum Blake is on the trail of an evil man who would be king of all wolf kind, no matter the cost … it’s up to Callum to stop him. How can Callum fulfill his duty to protect his pack and save the woman who is destined to be his mate?


“Samantha Dixon. What’s yours?”
“Callum Blake.”
He concentrated on Samantha. He’d never seen a woman as gorgeous as she. Her howl stated she was in search of mate, but surely a woman as beautiful as she would have suitors falling over themselves to have her. No male wolf in his right mind would pass up someone like her.
“Have you been mated before?” he asked in a subtle attempt to find out about her past or present relationship. All he wanted to really know was if he had competition.
“I was but he died,” she said softly. “A casualty of the war between us and a neighboring pack.”
She bit her lip and wiped the corners of her eyes.
“I’m sorry for your loss.” His heart went out for her. Losing someone you love was rough and for it to be a mate made it even harder. Shifters when they mated were bound together by a special bond, and when it broke because of the other’s death it was like losing half of their soul. He never had that type of connection before, still, he could imagine the type of pain such a loss would inflict on the surviving mate.
She stood and began to straighten up the bed. “Not half as sorry as I am.”
“I don’t understand,” he said.
“If you don’t mind, I’d rather not talk about it.”
“Please forgive my intrusion. I’m just trying to express my gratitude.”
She smiled weakly. “I know. I’m sorry if I sounded snippy. It’s just that things have been rough lately and I’ve been stressed.” She waved her hand as she turned to leave. “That’s not important right now. You need to get well.”
“Please don’t go.” Just having her near soothed him. She was cute, feminine, and wore a timid expression that hinted at the suffering she had endured. Even though he had only known her for a short time, he already wanted to be her shield, protecting her from any harm that would come her way. He wanted to hold her in his arms and feel her body against his. Something in her challenged him to be more than just a warrior. Ever since her howl in the night, his soul had been on fire for her.

NEW RELEASE!! A Wolf's Contract by TL Reeve #BlackHillsWolves

A Wolf's Contract by TL Reeve (Black Hills Wolves #43)

A Contract gone wrong.

Kru Hawthorne left home years ago. Unable to watch the abuse his sister suffered at the hands of Magnum and his cronies, Kru hit the road. Chased by the demons of his past, he drifts for years before making a home in the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Gabby Salvador, sister to Craven Salvador, President of the Vipers motorcycle club, watched her brother take his last breath. When the devastatingly handsome Kru arrives moments later, she knows something isn't right. Sticking to the shadows, she follows him to Rapid City, South Dakota, and finds something she never expected.

One text that changes everything.

Kru and Gabby's lives collide through a text and an attempt on Gabby's life. Together they'll have to figure out who put the hit on Craven and why they want Gabby as well. But, with the full moon, Gabby will be faced with an even bigger decision. Trust the man who isn't what he claims to be and take the protection he offers, or hit the road and pray she's never found.

“Of all the people who could’ve been looking for me, it’s you.” His muscular frame settled into the chair next to the table where she’d been working. “If you’re thinking about killing me, it won’t happen, Gabby.”

Her heart lurched. Adrenaline kicked in along with her fight or flight instinct. The way he gazed at her like a predatory animal made a sliver of unease wiggle through her. “Well, at least we know where we stand, Kru,” she said, straightening her shoulders. “You must know the real reason I asked you here.”

“Explain it for me, beautiful? I’m having a hard time remembering,” he drawled, while giving her a smoldering look.

“You know damn well what I’m talking about,” she snarled, amazed at his relaxed posture. He eased the curtain open a little then glanced over at her, waiting for her to continue. “Do I have to spell it out?” Anger replaced her apprehension.

“No, but I’d like your assessment of what happened. I’m almost positive you were the one in Craven’s office. Tell me what you saw.” He folded his hands in his lap like he didn’t have a care in the world.

She curled her tongue against her cheek and nodded. “Okay, cabrón. We’ll play your game.” Gabby sat forward in her chair, her hands trembling with repressed anger. “I saw your ass storm into my brother’s office, gun drawn, like you were going to kill him. Which means only one or two thing—you were contracted or you had a beef with my brother.”
