Awesome Day – Undesirable Mate is live

via GIPHY

Have you ever had one of those days when you think it’s all going to crap and then suddenly it all comes right?  Today was that day for me.

It started out innocently enough. I decided to go out for breakfast, but the cafe I like was full, so I grabbed a couple of snacks and headed to the beach with my laptop.  The thing was charged yesterday – but when I got to my chosen spot – it didn’t work.  But I wasn’t thwarted – I pulled out my brand new charger pack…and that didn’t work either. Never mind. It really wasn’t a bad day for sitting at the beach in the sun, watching the birds trying to steal my fries. But I was a bit miffed – I couldn’t write or read at the beach thanks to my technological woes, so I headed home.

And that’s when the good stuff happened.

  1.  The land agent rung and offered me the rental house I went to see last week – that earned a large squeal
  2. Will Parkinson, from Pride Promotions emailed me with the first stops on the Tangling With Bears blog tour – you should check that out if your keen on print book giveaways – just have a look on my Facebook Profile…and then…and then…yep!
  3. Undesirable Mate came live on Amazon.com – you can get that HERE.

So it’s definitely a happy dancing type of day. Hope the sun is shining wherever you are 🙂

Undesirable Mate is coming – Excerpt

It’s plodding it’s way through Amazon’s system – what you might ask? Book 6 in the Bound and Bonded series – Undesirable Mate. And for those of you who are interested – here’s a sneak peak.

Excerpt

There were times when Phillip wished the voice in his head had a mute button. As he was walking with Kellen down to the cells, he decided this was one of those times. They were headed down the long hallway in the basement; their footsteps were the only sound in the empty space – well that, and his inner voice.

He’s gonna want that ferret as soon as he sees him, you know that, don’t you?

That guy’s got everything going for him that you ain’t.

How could you tie a man like Kellen to you for life – you know you’re just gonna disappoint him.

When are you going to get it through your head that you ain’t worth anything. You should let Kellen go, let him have his ferret, let him…

“Phillip. Phillip!” Strong hands gripped his biceps and Phillip found himself with his back to the wall, a worried Kellen in front of him.

“Why are you stopping? Would you rather see your old fuck-buddy alone?” The wince on Kellen’s face made Phillip feel guilty and he wished he’d censored the words before they came out. His inner voice kept bitching.

Of course he would – he ain’t gonna get blown if you’re pathetic ass is there, is he.

“Knock it off! You’re thinking too hard. It’s not doing you a bit of good,” Kellen said firmly.

“Well what do you…” Okay. He got it. The conversation was apparently over, and joy of joys it turned out that Kellen’s mouth was a mute switch, at least for his addled brain. As soon as their lips touched, every thought Phillip had went right out of his head. The harsh way Kellen devoured his mouth, the force of the man’s tongue checking out his gums, the hardness and heat of his mate’s body all combined to render Phillip mindless, and so freaking horny it hurt.

“Don’t think I don’t know how hard this’ll be for you when we go in there. But not being there’ll fuck with your mind even more,” Kellen said when he finally finished his lip assault and seemed satisfied with what could only be a blissed-out expression on Phillip’s face. “You’re a fucking strong wolf shifter, with a possessive nature that rivals my own. But know this. No matter what I had with that little fuck, it was exactly that – a fuck-fest and nothing more. You, you are the best thing to ever happen to me and believe me, you’re worth far more to me than anyone I’ve ever been with.”

Phillip felt his brain come online again and he half-wished it hadn’t. His inner voice could be a nasty bitch. But he needed to be sensible about this. Neither one of them were virgins. Phillip had screwed more than a few of the subs in the club and Kellen would have to handle that if it ever came up in conversation.  And from what was said in Pearson’s office, Kellen had been played by the little shit, and he could imagine his mate wasn’t too happy about that.

“All I’ll ever want from now on is you,” Kellen said, his voice a lot softer this time. “You don’t know me well enough to trust me yet, and only time will take care of that, but know this. The moment I took one whiff of your scent, Tristan was dead to me, as was anyone else that I’ve had my cock in before.”

“Is that supposed to be romantic?” If so, Kellen could probably do with a few tips; although it was kinda sweet.

“Did it work?” It wasn’t so much the words but the hopeful expression on Kellen’s face that had Phillip smiling.

“We’ll work on it,” Phillip promised, giving Kellen’s chest a little push. It was like trying to shift a tank. “Let’s go sort out your little ferret friend, because Pearson is waiting on our report, and then I’ll show you the suite I use when I stay at the club.”

“And a meal?” Kellen said as he moved back, but he put his arm across Phillip’s shoulder as they headed for Tristan’s cell. “I plan on needing energy later.”

Undesirable Mate – Blurb and Cover

It’s done. After a long fight with the book, Undesirable Mate has been uploaded to Amazon and will hopefully be available in the next few days.

This book was hard to write. As my readers of the Bound and Bonded series will remember, Phillip mucked up badly with his pack and six months later he’s still depressed about it. It was his depression that made this book so hard to write. It’s something I have personal experience of, and it was hard not to get sucked into those feelings as I channeled Phillip’s experience. But don’t worry – this book is not all doom and gloom. Phillip redeems himself and gets a sexy mate in the bargain.

actual cover

Blurb

Phillip struggles to get through every day. Thanks to Pearson, he still has his job as an enforcer and life goes on around him much the same as it always did. But Phillip doesn’t feel a part of it. He can’t. His betrayal of his pack has left him with scars, both mentally and physically and the voice in his head won’t give him any peace. So when he meets his mate, he’s not surprised to see the man has someone else tucked under his arm. What else did he expect?

Kellen Waite is a troubleshooter for the Council. He loves his job, he has a couple of close friends, and he takes his sex where he can find it. Sent to the Washington Pack to take out a vampire, he makes the mistake of bringing along his sometime companion, Tristan. He realizes that was his first mistake when he scents his mate in Alpha Pearson’s office.

Issues caused from within the Paranormal Council is just one of the problems Kellen and Phillip have to face. A vengeful ferret, lies and misunderstandings, not to mention Phillip’s depression all conspire to prevent the one thing Kellen is determined to have – his mate in his arms.

Warning: Phillip has symptoms of depression. If this is a trigger for you, please don’t buy this book. Also contains a sneaky ferret shifter, a mad councilman and an often clueless Alpha. HEA, no cheating and no cliffhangers, guaranteed.

Written for adult audiences. Contains graphic scenes of intimate situations between men.

Will post a link when it’s available on Amazon 🙂 Keep an eye on the blog for an excerpt coming tomorrow.
