Sneak Peak at Enticing Elliott

elliotcvr

This is an unedited proof:
Elliott looked at the big metal door with the wolf head knocker and almost balked. There was no sign on the outside or windows or sign that this was a nightclub just a big metal door. He almost ran.
Almost.
But Anthony asked him to come, ordered him really. He couldn’t say no to Anthony. He didn’t know anyone who could. There was something about the man that made you want to make him happy, want to do what he asked.
No matter how ridiculous.
Like wearing leather pants and a copper colored mesh shirt. Hell even the boots were an Anthony requirement. There was nothing so embarrassing as your new boss taking you shopping and then demanding your attendance at a bar…club…whatever.
He wasn’t even sure it was legal for Anthony to do this. Of course he wouldn’t be the one bringing that up.
He’d met the man’s mate.
Tentatively he took the wolf knocker and banged it.
The door opened to a tall lean man with massive shoulders. Cool grass green eyes looked him up and down. “Are you a member?”
Elliott shook his head back and forth more of a spasm than a voluntary movement. “A-Anthony invited me.”
“Name?”
“Elliott Samuels.”
Those green eyes eyed him intently. “Samuels?”
“I-I’m half-wolf.”
“Can you change?”
Elliott didn’t know why it mattered but he nodded. “Full independent change.”
Some half-wolves couldn’t. Couldn’t change or involuntarily changed under a full moon.”
“Excellent.” The man gave him a smile that could only be called…wolfish.
Elliott had the dizzying sensation that he was the prey.
The man pulled a walkie-talkie phone from a clip on his low riding black jeans. Elliott blinked at how low those jeans really rode. He could swear he could almost see the man’s pubic hair.
“I need a replacement.” The bouncer’s voice was low and pleasant.
“Coming.” A scratchy female voice said over the intercom.
“It will be just a moment. Do you like what you see?”
Elliott swallowed. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to stare.” He could feel his cheeks burning with embarrassment.
The bouncer chuckled. “If I didn’t want people looking I wouldn’t wear them so low.”
“I’m Parker.” He held out one massive paw to Elliott who cautiously took the man’s hand. He was surprised at how gentle the handshake was. The large man was careful of his massive strength.

Upcoming Book News

This is for those of you who have asked about upcoming books. The next one in the Moon Pack series is Enticing Elliot (Parker’s story) which will be approximately the same length as the others. But the book following is going to be Finding Farro. It will be a longer book and will come out mid-April.

Next week the first in the Hellbourne trilogy will be released.

There is talk of releasing a MoonPack print anthology but we are still discussing that. I would add an extra story (Maybe an Anthony and Silver story) for the print edition. If you’re interested please email the publisher at admin@literaryroad.com and let them know.

So Release Date Info So Far:

Hellbourne: Lost & Found (March 20th): This will consist of three books.

Enticing Elliott (March 27th)

Dragonmen: Mate Hunt (April 3rd) This is also a three book series but each book in this one will stand alone.

Finding Farro (April 17th – may change due to the longer nature of this book)

I’ll also be posting blurbs for each book. There will approximately be one to two Moon Pack books per month.

Thank you for your interest,

Sincerely

Hellbourne – Excerpt

This is the first in a 3 book series.hellbourne

When Luc Hellbourne, favored son of the devil,  is tossed aside by his werewolf boyfriend he falls in with the most powerful vampire in the world. But what happens when his old lover decides he wants him back and daddy dearest wants him to come home for a visit?

Unedited Excerpt:

Most people might be intimidated by the size of the man.
Nothing intimidated Luc. When you’re raised by the devil what else is evil enough to fear?
He used his most wheedling tone and tried for an innocent look. “But Nikko-baby said if I wasn’t there is ten minutes he was going to be very angry with me.”
Sometimes it was fun to make crap up. Luc added a little fear in his voice just for kicks.
“Master Nikkolai said that.” The guard’s voice trembled.
Wow you could really see the white’s of the guy’s eyes.
“Yep. But I could tell him that you didn’t want to break protocol.” Luc let that statement hang in the air for a moment. “I mean surely he’ll understand. He’s good that way.”
Now he was just messing with the guy to watch him sweat. He took another sip of beer waiting to see what the vamp guard would do.
The guard leapt to one side. “He’s in the lounge second door on your left.”
“Thank you.” Luc placed a soft kiss on the man’s cheek in way of apology, pleased when the guard’s heart skipped a beat.
It was nice to know that he still had it.
And if Luc’s path up the stairs was a little wobbly as he drunk his beer, well there wasn’t any audience. How many beers did that make, three, four, hmm, maybe six…whatever.
He stopped at the top of the stairs, the door the man had indicated pulsed lightly with power.
Taking a last sip of his beer, Luc opened the door and walked through to another world. A large room, almost as big as the dance floor below, littered with couches and people draped across them. Women, men, some vampires, some food, all dressed in fancy almost there wear.
“Anyone have another beer?” Luc asked waving his bottle in the air.
For a moment the room fell into absolute silence, all eyes on him. He suppressed a giggle but it was a challenge.
A low velvety purr came from the far corner. “Sheila, get the beautiful man a beer.”
Bingo.
Luc turned in the direction of the voice.
Mmmm.
He gave a cursory look at the two scantily clad women draped on either side of Nikkolai like matching accessories and felt a flash of fire burn in his belly.
“Go.” Luc snapped.
The women jumped up and ran for the door.

Coming Soon Denying Dare

Sexy Steven is still looking for his wolf mate.  However, every pickup ends in disappointment and he’s frustrated by his attraction to Dare, the werecat bartender. Things change when Anthony gets impatient and douses his friend with catnip drawing the out the cat in the werecat.

Excerpt: (not necessarily a finalized version)

“So how long have you been in love with my best friend?”

Dare choked on the glass of water he was drinking. Water spewed across the bar as the weretiger tried to catch his breath.

“What are you talking about?” He gasped. “I’m going to tell Silver to cut back your alcohol limit.”

Anthony gave a graceful shrug as he sipped on his fruity alcoholic drink. “Silver’s not overly concerned about my alcohol limits. I don’t drink all that much.” He blinked his stunning amber eyes at Dare. “Now about Steven. If you’re not in love with him, why do you stare at him like you want to pounce and take him down like a squeaky mouse?”

Sighing he gazed across the room at the dark-haired wolf trolling for someone to take home. “Nothing’s going on with Steven and looking is as far as I’ll ever get. He won’t even talk to me for more than a drink order. He doesn’t want a cat.” And fuck if that didn’t break his heart.

“As much as I love him, my friend is an idiot. In over a year none of those pieces of ass he picked up touched a fraction of his heart. He’s just determined to have a wolf mate because his adoptive parents are human and he’s always yearned for a pack.”

Dare blinked back tears, dipping his head so the extremely empathetic alpha mate wouldn’t notice. “I can’t give him a pack, weretigers only meet to mate.”

“Shit, Dare. I can give him a pack if he fucking wants a pack. What he needs is a soul mate and it’s my job, or so Silver keeps telling me, to watch out for the packs best interests. Well the packs best interest is for its fabulous bartender to be happy.”

Shit. Small bolts of lightning flashed in the beautiful blond’s eyes; a sign of a storm of the worst sort. An Anthony storm. It took a lot to upset the sweet-natured alpha mate but he was an unstoppable force when he was crossed.

Before he could say anything more Anthony was marching across the busy dance floor. With a talent that was mystically the alpha mate’s he walked directly to his friend while everyone in his path moved out of his way in a smooth natural style as if they were never even there.

Standing on his tiptoes Dare watched the smaller man approach his friend. He briefly got a glimpse of Anthony pulling something out of his pocket. But by then it was too late.

Fury followed Anthony’s every step. How could Steven not see what was right in front of him? Every weekend he came to the club and picked up a different wolf. Every Monday he mourned to Anthony about how he ‘wasn’t the one’ and yet here was this sweet-souled man with sable hair and stunning green eyes who he completely ignored. Well no more he was done with this.

“Steven.” Anthony shouted over the crowd.

The familiar dark-haired head turned towards him away from the were-twink he was talking to. What Steven thought he’d have in common with a skinny submissive, who was growing something on his chin that should’ve been allowed to die gracefully, Anthony didn’t know.

“What?”

“I’ve got something for you.”

Steven looked Anthony up and down. “What?”

Anthony slipped the envelope out of his pocket. With deft fingers he popped open the flap and dumped the contents into his hand.

“This.” Taking a deep breath, Anthony blew the entire handful of green powder onto Steven’s blue silk top and brown leather pants.

“Shit.” Steven tried to brush the stuff off but it clung like mad to the silk. “What the fuck did you do?”

He glared at Anthony his blue eyes bristling with ire.

Anthony gave him a wide grin. “Enjoy your night.” Turning on one perfect booted heel he sauntered off letting the crowds swallow him up.

Stunned Steven watched his best friend ditch him after ruining his outfit. What the hell was Anthony up to? Members of Silver’s pack might consider his best friend sweet, but Steven knew the ruthless manipulator that lay elbow to elbow with the kind heart. If Anthony thought something was good for you, it was best to sit back and take it like a man.

“Shit man, what’s the alpha mate have against you?” The twink looked at him with suspicious eyes like he was marked for death and didn’t want to get involved.

A loud roar snapped his attention to the bar. Dare was watching him like he was prey.
