Lion Her Ass Off

Blue Valley Shifters, Book 2

By Sarah Marsh

 

Blurb:

Just like any other shifter, Julie always imagined meeting her mate and living happily ever after with the charming male of her dreams. Nothing could have prepared her for the shitstorm that was about to become her love life. With her luck though, shouldn’t she have expected it?

Hector has lived his life knowing that he’d become Alpha of Blue Valley one day. Turns out, acting like you always have it together and living it? Well, those are two very different things. He panicked when he first realized that his sister’s best friend was his mate, now he must rise to the occasion in hopes that he can salvage the rest of his life—but no pressure.

Deacon had no idea what fate had in store for him with a new start in Blue Valley, meeting his mate and her ‘plus one’ wasn’t it. These two are so mixed up in the past it seems almost impossible to make things right and move forward. Good thing he’s a professional.

Excerpt:

Julie was very proud of herself for waiting until seven the next morning before she climbed the trellis to Heidi’s bedroom window and snuck in just like she’d done a million times since they were children—well, maybe not exactly the same. This time, she had the forethought to listen at the window to make sure all occupants were still sleeping. The last thing she needed was to interrupt her bestie getting ‘serviced’ by her new beaus. But given the fact that the current bane of her existence was most likely sleeping in a room down the hall, she simply couldn’t risk the front door.
She had just eased the window shut and turned around to a rather large mound of bodies in Heidi’s double bed, thankfully still covered by a quilt. Her legs were bent, preparing to launch as a devious smile crept over her lips…
“Wak—ahh!” She squeaked and jumped back as a low growl split the previous silence and two sets of golden feline eyes popped open in the dim light of dawn.
“No, Julie,” Mason growled. “No eggs and no damned bakey! We’re taking back that spare key unless you agree to never come through our door before 8:00 AM again.”
“She came in through the window,” Wade muttered before pulling a pillow over his head.
“What’s happening?” Heidi groaned before her eyes opened slowly. “Hey, babe, what’s going on? Why do you look like hammered shit?”
“No.” Mason placed a huge paw over Heidi’s face, and Julie struggled not to laugh, as her twenty minutes of sleep last night threatened to snap her mind. “You can have a key to our new place if you agree not to barge into our bedroom at ungodly times in the morning.”
“Okay … unless it’s an emergency.” She reluctantly agreed with the giant, naked tiger in her best friend’s bed.
“Great, now can I please get back to cuddling my mate—”
“It’s an emergency!” Her voice bellowed to the ceiling as she interrupted him, causing giggles to erupt from Heidi and curses from the men on each side of her.
You are an emergency.” Mason groaned and followed Wade’s lead to pull a pillow over his head as Heidi tried to climb out from in between the two of them.
“Awww, you’re so sweet, thank you.” She knew he hadn’t meant it as a compliment, but she was a wolf and was therefore genetically predisposed to only hear things she wanted to.
“Is there a reason you’re using the window instead of the door?” Heidi asked as she pulled on a robe. “Oh Goddess, did Derek get drunk and pass out in his lion form on the porch again?”
“No…”
Wow, this confession was going to be tougher than she thought it would be. Julie didn’t think Heidi would be mad that Hector was her mate, but there was a very good chance that she was going to be furious that Julie had known all these years and didn’t say a Goddess-damned thing about it to her best friend in the entire world.
There was really only one way to deal with this, Julie knew that. So, she’d do what she’d always done when it came to delivering bad news to a lion shifter female—she’d Band-Aid that bitch off quickly and then dive for cover.
“I’ve known for the last six years that your asshole brother, Hector, is my mate, but he pretended like it wasn’t happening and he obviously doesn’t want me, so I don’t want him either and last night he lost his mind and said it out loud in front of your brothers and your dad and now I don’t know what’s going to happen!”
It all came out in one overly loud, long, run-on sentence and when it was done, Julie covered her face with her hands and waited for the worst.
Huh. I wasn’t expecting the worst to be a bunch of heavy breathing…
She moved two fingers aside so she could see what was happening, and in case Heidi tried to maul her, she would still only lose one eye. To her surprise, Heidi, as well as both of her mates were just staring at her with their mouths hanging open.
The seconds ticked by and Julie watched closely as her friend’s expression moved from shock to realization, then a murderous look clouded over and Julie waited to get yelled at for betraying the one person she loved most in the world.
“That … arrogant, selfish, know-it-all, big-haired son of a bitch!” Heidi screamed, her hands clenching as her claws slid from her fingertips. “I’ll kill him!”
Now it was Julie’s turn to stand there in shock, but lucky for them all, Heidi’s mates recovered quickly as they both grabbed her before she could yank the bedroom door open and go find her big brother.
“So … you don’t hate me?” Julie’s words were quiet, but they stopped Heidi in her tracks like she’d used a bullhorn. “For not telling you all these years?”
“Oh, babe.” Heidi pulled her in for a big, lion-sized hug, and for once, Julie didn’t struggle. She just took the comfort her friend offered. “I don’t hate you. I wish you had told me, though. I can’t imagine how awful this must have been, going through it all alone. But don’t worry, we’ll fix it.”
Julie sighed. “I don’t need you to fix anything, Heidi. There’s nothing left between me and your brother. He made his choice, and I made peace with that years ago.”
Liar. The worst thing that cat-bastard ever did was make me have to lie to my best friend, and now he’s doing it all over again.
From the look on Heidi’s face, she suspected Julie wasn’t being honest, but she was thankful Mason interrupted.
“Well,” he announced, looking at his phone. “I think the first thing we should do is get both of you out of here and away from that asshole lion. My assistant just texted the house is ready. Let’s go.”
“Good plan,” Julie agreed and walked to the exit, ready to get away from the slight scent of Hector that was lingering in the hallway.
When the room went silent, she looked behind her.
“We’re not climbing out the damned window.” Wade rolled his eyes at her.
Tigers. So danged bossy.

Author Info:

Sarah Marsh was born in British Columbia, she’s only recently began her writing career finding it the perfect outlet for taking the edge off a nine to five job. She’s a science fiction and romance junkie and when her imagination started to take the characters she’d read about even further in their adventures she decided to try writing something of her own.

Her biggest weaknesses are animals of any kind … she even loves the ones that wake you up at four in the morning because they can almost see the bottom of their food dish.

When it comes to life in general she’s a big believer that laughter is the best medicine and that there’s no such thing as too much love, which is why she’s such a sucker for a happy ending.

A look into…

~ Blurb ~

* Emmett owns an occult store. He firmly believes in magic. His boyfriend, Jackson, does not.
* Yet none of that matters because they are devoted to each other—until the night Emmett becomes the unexpected target of a sexual demon … an Incubus. Suddenly Emmett can’t remember their passionate nights. He’s slowly being taken over. And Jackson struggles with the realization that magic might just be real after all.
* Now Jackson has to step in to fight for his love before the demon completely consumes Emmett.
Be Warned: m/m sex

~ Excerpt ~

* He touched the cast iron rim, and a bolt of electricity seized through his body. Shocked, he cradled his hand as he backed away. The thing had never conducted such a static charge before, and he’d bought the things years ago at an estate sale from a known practitioner of Wiccan magic. Suddenly, everything about it now creeped him out, so Emmett decided to leave it be and head home. Gathering his stuff, he headed toward the door when suddenly a fierce wind whipped out of nowhere to encircle him.
* Frightened, Emmett stumbled back and tried to bat at the air that sucked the oxygen from his lungs. He couldn’t breathe. The swirling winds tore through him, bringing him to his knees. And as quickly as it had started, it abruptly ended, leaving him gasping.
* “You are a good vessel.”
* The whispered words echoed all around, and Emmett looked up to see a shadow approaching. Slowly, it took shape, coalescing into a tall, thin creature with horns protruding from the sides of its head. Fear sliced through him, and Emmett tried crab-walking away from it.
* “I will keep you,” the thing seemed to hiss. Its bright yellow eyes blazed with the heat of the sun. The thing solidified even more, turning into a man, one with chiseled abs, a beautifully sculptured body with a large cock and balls.
* “W-what are you?” Emmett cried out.
* “You will feed me,” it taunted, not answering his question. In fact, Emmett couldn’t see its mouth moving. “I will be you and you will be me.”
* It stopped at Emmett’s feet, and the thin lips twisted into some semblance of a smile. In a flash, Emmett remembered all he’d forgotten in the night before, and he remembered seeing this … creature? … before. It had rushed at him, making him collapse and pass out. And through the night, all the sex with Jackson had been because of this demon.
* “Tell me what you are,” he whispered, horrified.
* “I am a nightmare, induced to lie upon the unknowing. I have existed as far back as Mesopotamia and Samaria, to beget with women a demon hybrid. I thrive upon the sex of humans, no matter if be male or female.”
* Emmett wracked his brain for such a creature, finally coming to one horrifying conclusion. “You’re an Incubus?”

a look at Beth D. Carter & ‘Untraceable’ @BethDCarter @evernightpub #Interview #Erotic #RomanticSuspense

Today we have author Beth D. Carter visiting. Welcome!

What would you like to tell readers about yourself?

* I hate washing dishes but I love cooking. I hate washing clothes but I love wearing them. I try to write characters who aren’t cookie cutters, ones who are full of angst but where love redeems them. I push myself to write complicated situations that I have no idea how to resolve, forcing me to think outside the box. I hate people who don’t pick up their dog’s crap in public places and I really hate people who are rude and condescending. I especially hate discrimination in all and every form. The perfect birthday presents are gift certificates to bookstores. And I love to hear from readers. I’m really easy to find on Facebook or Twitter.

~ Behind the Book ~

What would you like to tell readers about yourself?
Originally from Missouri, I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. By day I’m a pharmacy tech and by night I try to tap out some words on a page.

What book are you going to tell us about today? Is it part of a series? If so, what’s the order the books should be read in?
My book, Untraceable, is the second book in the World of Danger series. The first is titled Invincible and I have a third planned for 2020.

How’d you/your muse come up with this story?
That’s a funny story. I had originally wrote the beginning of it for a different series, but that never really got off the ground. It was supposed to an A-Team storyline, with four mercenaries kicked out of the Army and now fight for the innocent. Only I never really connected with the characters I had in mind. Luckily, I never got rid of it, and shifted those characters into this series, and this time…it worked!

Describe the hero in five words.
JD Harlan the Second is: focused, hardheaded, secretive, born leader

Describe the heroine in five words.
Mae Sawyer is: bookworm, unexciting, ordinary, very adaptable

Who’s your favorite character in the book & why?
Mae, because she’s me. I hope to many readers she’s very relatable because she has no other special ability than the memory of the books she’s read.

What’s your favorite line in the story?
I have a few favorites in this story. Here’s one section I think is pretty funny:
* “Why don’t you stay here while I-”
* A second later she had latched onto his arm. “No way. Where you go I go.”
* He tried to extract his arm, but she held fast, like a boa constrictor strangling its prey. “Mae. Let me go.”
* “No way, Jose. Haven’t you ever watched horror movies? The girl left behind always dies.”

~ Blurb ~

* Mae Sawyer has a huge crush on her boss, JD Harlan, but he doesn’t even know she exists. She blends into the background of her data entry job, living for glimpses of him walking through the office. Then one night, everything changes. While working late, she’s caught up in a plot to kidnap him…and gets taken as well.
* They wake up in an underground bunker. No electricity. No way to be traced. Alone, they have to rely on each other to stay strong until their captor decides their fate. Danger lurks outside the bunker, waiting for a moment of vengeance.

~ Excerpt ~

* “Everything was well planned,” he muttered, coming to a stop in front of her. She lifted her head to look up at him. “Except it was set up for one person. You were unexpected, which makes me wonder why they took you instead of leaving you behind.”
* “Sympathy, of course,” she said immediately. “Collateral damage. You won’t do anything to escape if it means leaving me behind. Clearly I’m not made for hiking through a proverbial jungle so I’m your weakest link.”
* He looked her over, from head to toe. She wore comfortable business attire complete with sensible, low-heeled pumps. Definitely not made for a quick get-a-way if it came to that. But something earnest in her eyes caught his attention…a spark of fierceness that her drab clothing and persona tried to hide. A little voice in his head told him there was a lot more to Mae Sawyer.
* “I disagree with that,” he said thoughtfully. “You are not the weak link here.”
* She smiled and placed a hand on his arm, staring up at him with those remarkable eyes that managed punch him in his chest. Big. Brown. Absolutely guileless. When had he ever met a woman whose thoughts were reflected in her eyes? Unexpectedly, desire slammed into his gut and he had an urge to lean down and kiss her. He wanted to know if she tasted as sweet as she looked, which boggled his mind. He tended to date women who knew the score. Females who didn’t expect anything more than a good dinner and good sex. Long nights at the office, even longer nights on assignment, and a constant threat of danger hanging over his head tended to be isolating. His lifestyle and work commitments didn’t allow for relationships…or emotions, and he instinctively knew Mae wasn’t the love-em-and-leave-em type of woman.
* So instead of doing want he wanted, which was kissing her until they were both senseless, he took a few steps away from her and took a deep breath to get his hormones under control. He had to force his mind into thinking like a security analyst again.
