Dragon’s Hoard by M.A. Church

Warwick is a dragon shifter who lent out a loan with a century long payback period to an alpha werewolf. When the time came to be re-paid the Alpha avoided Warwick so the dragon shifter decided to make his presence known.

Alpha Montgomery was celebrating his son Avery’s 100th birthday. The year Avery becomes a man. When Warwick barges into the festivities unannounced. The moment Avery sees Warwick he knows that’s his mate. Warwick, upon smelling the most delightful scent ever finds Avery’s eyes, locks on, and knows the same truth.

So when it comes time to talk about the defaulted loan Warwick comes up with a different plan; not seize all of Alpha Montgomery’s assets, some yes, but not all, and include Avery in the new deal.

Rome And Jules
by Tara Lain
 
Blurb:
Two werewolf households, both alike in dignity….
Rome Siracusa, youngest son of the alpha of the nouveau-riche Siracusa pack, wants to be a faithful son and pack member, but he’s got two big secrets. One, he’s blessed with enhanced hearing, vision, strength, and the ability to shift at will. Second, he’s gay, a fact he can’t admit to his deadly homophobic father.
Rome crashes a party at the mansion of his pack’s greatest enemy, the ancient, pure-blooded Havillands. Jules, the gay son of the drunkard alpha, is being married off to a rich entrepreneur. Smitten and moved by the beautiful male’s plight, Rome tries to find a way to save Jules—while digging himself deeper into pack politics and navigating his own arranged marriage. Secrets climb out of the caves as the werewolf gods speak through the mouths of their children, and the two great families clash, suffocating the hopes of star-crossed lovers.

Excerpt

 

Excerpt 1– Rome and Jules by Tara Lain

Holy shit! Rome controlled his face and swooped Yolanda into a big twirl to cover his surprise. As he came out of the spin, he leaned in and sang, “Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf? The big bad wolf.”

Yolanda gave him a gutsy laugh. “Whoever you are, cutie, you’ve got balls. Not many guys want to take on my brother.”

“Surely he can’t object to you dancing?”

She shrugged. “I guess the problem is that no one knows what Ty will object to.”

“Must limit your social life.”

A crease popped between her arched brows. “Tell me about it.”

“Uh, where is your brother?”

She shrugged. “I guess he got kind of beat up on the tennis courts today and decided to go drown his sorrows with some of his cronies rather than attending this command performance.”

“But then that means he’s not performing on command.”

She spoke softly. “Ty doesn’t give a fuck. Not like old man Havilland can do much, or at least will do anything. Too busy with his friends Jack Daniels and Jim Beam.”

Rome quirked a half smile. The music stopped, and he hid his sigh of relief. He gave Yolanda a small bow. “Thank you for the dance.”

“Thank you for the courage.” She chuckled again. Shame she was a blatant enemy. He kind of liked her.

A tapping against a glass brought the whole crowd around to face the center of the dance floor.

All the guests who were sitting stood and placed a hand over their heart. Rome didn’t even have to ask. He turned to find Gerard Havilland weaving drunkenly between his sister, a pale, delicate-for-a-wolf female, and some male named Alphonse who Rome had heard was Havilland’s second. Nobody spoke about Havilland’s wife, who’d apparently walked out on him years before. Rome sighed quietly and crossed his heart. Yeah, and his fingers.

Someone started the pledge.

“I pledge my life to the alpha, who is the conduit to the wolfgods and giver of wolfen energy. Hail the alpha, source of strength and unity. Praise the alpha, defender of the pack and wellspring of all that is good. I lay myself at the alpha’s feet without need for request, cause, or reason. The alpha rules us all.”

As the voices died down, Rome felt all his hair standing on end. Regardless of how unworthy the alpha, the pledge rang with the truth of ages and united every were.

Havilland waved his hand impatiently toward the crowd. Rome turned his head—felt his mouth fall open—and let his body follow the turn.

Oh my god of wolves.

From the side of the big room walked a young male who could only be the much-heralded son. What was his name? Who cares? The guy was tall—taller even than Rome—reed slender, with dark blond hair that likely fell to his shoulders if released from the queue gathered at his neck in a ribbon. But the face. Like someone translated poetry into a person. Large eyes, so blue Rome could see their color from where he stood, dominated his face above high cheekbones that would have been gaunt if they weren’t a soft, glowing pink. His neck was long, his hands graceful. Gods, what is he? Wolf males might be tall like Rome, but they were nearly always powerfully built. This guy looked very little like Gerard Havilland.

Rome’s whole body vibrated with electricity and shook as if the male were a magnet and Rome was iron filings trying to organize around him.

Guest Post

Two great werewolf houses, both alike in dignity –

 

Hi. Welcome. I’m Tara Lain and I’m delighted to be here to celebrate the release of my newest paranormal romance, Rome and Jules. As the titles implies, the book incorporates the Romeo and Juliet trope – and the decision to do that all started with the line you see above – the first line of Shakespeare’s play – with a little addition. LOL. Somehow, I thought the line had a great ring.

 

Turning one of the great love stories into a werewolf gay romance may not seem obvious, but after that line inspired me, it was. What if one family was old, established, respected – but mismanaged and getting poor, while the other was rough, superalpha, wealthy, and looked down up by the other family? But as my character, Rome Siracusa says, “We may be nouveau, but we’re very, very riche.”

 

Of course, my Romeo has to go to a masquerade party chasing someone else and sees the beautiful Jules who’s about to be married off for money by his drunken father. Rome desperately wants to help Jules – and desperately wants Jules. The plot definitely thickens.

 

Since I get to write romance instead of tragedy, I had the pleasure of creating a happy ending for my lovers, star-crossed through they be. I hope you enjoy Rome and Jules. I man, who could resist my sexy Rome on the cover? Thank you for coming by. : )

Off the Beaten Path by Cari Z.

Off the Beaten Path by Cari Z.

The military once upon a time created werewolves. Generations later, even if the gene has been silent since inoculation, people are still turning. When they do, the person, and only them, are transported to a secure reservation dedicated only to pack land.

This is how we meet Ward and Ava. Ava is Ward’s four year old daughter and on her first day of school she turned. Ward received the call and before he could arrive she was already taken. All the government would give him was a check and some advice to forget she existed. Ward refused, called in favors, and almost died getting to his the fence that separated himself and his daughter. Now he had to find a way inside.

Henry was the the pack’s alpha. All alpha’s were obligated to join the military and perform special ops missions. He was on said mission when Ward shows up at the compound. His second in command has to make a last minute decision.

When the two men meet it’s definitely not love at first site but while the story is a darker take than many paranormals Ward brings a light to Henry’s life but it might be too late for the military leader in charge of all the alpha’s. He’s had enough and Ava’s time might be at an end if she won’t change back to a human.

Stray Pup by Elliot Cooper

Stray Pup by Elliot Cooper

*Written-not filmed review*

Stray Pup is approx 10,000 words; an incredibly short story.  Yet, it’s also paranormally delicious.  (Because it’s so short I’ve been able to read it multiple times and love it more with each read.)

 

Shifters are known to the world.  They’re not in hiding, but they’re not 100% accepted by the populous either.  There are humans though that seem to find themselves with a were fetish and that’s how Jamie Finch finds himself in his current predicament.

Jamie’s currently in the middle of his transition from human to were.  He’s decided to leave the human world behind him and go in search of a pack.  Once he arrives at his destination to begin “pack hunting” he’s assaulted by a smell.  Oh, the smell.  It’s everything to Jamie.  After being escorted to the correct pack he can’t get past the smell.

 

Elliot does a wonderful job of creating this world, having us immediately placed in this world, and attaching ourselves to Jamie and his adventure.  From the moment Jamie arrives at his new pack and finds the source of the incredible smell Elliot has us getting sexually frustrated along side Jamie until we can find release, and what a release it is.
