Title:  Tell Me the Truth

Book 5

Stockton Wolves Series

Author: Lisa Oliver

 

BLURB

Special Agent Niclas Draig was on a mission…well, he was supposed to be. But when sent to Stockton with his partner Jack, to investigate what looked like the work of a serial killer, he walked into the Captain’s office and found himself looking at his mate. A mate, who’s delicious scent was tinged with deceit as the man looked him in the eye and lied to his face.

Captain Anthony Reynolds was getting tired of the way paranormals played fast and loose with the law and his life. Eighteen months from retirement, the last thing he expected when the FBI came in was to have such a physical reaction to one of the agents. When the same agent blasts him two weeks later for lying, Tony knew his life was going to change. He’d been around paranormals enough to know exactly what the word mate meant. But that didn’t mean he had to accept it.

An unguarded moment, a flash of teeth and both men’s lives change. Their mating causes problems from every angle and…an unexpected bonus. An abduction, a bomb and Nico’s interfering family – will Nico and Tony ever get their HEA?

EXCERPT

 

Tony hesitated as he got out of his car. The sight of Special Agent Schubert running down the driveway like the hounds of hell were after him was bad enough. The roaring coming from inside the house was another thing entirely. It was an unearthly sound – pure rage and frustration, loud enough to send a shiver down his spine. No wonder Jack was running; Tony was inclined to follow suit.

A mate will never hurt you. Melissa, Grant, Shane, Dimitri, they all said the same thing. Even Alexi lived by the same code, and he couldn’t run on four legs. At least, Tony didn’t think he could but then what he knew about vampires wouldn’t cover a pinhead. Should I? Shouldn’t I? Fuck this. I’m a damn police captain and I’ve dealt with paranormals before. Determined to show no fear, Tony strode towards the open door.

“Hello?” He called out sharply, not seeing anyone in the opulent hallway. Either his mate had deep pockets or was squatting in a high-end vacant house. The roaring seemed to come from the living room and squaring his shoulders, Tony stepped inside, his shoes loud on the marble floor. Peering around the closest door, he was faced with another huge room. But it wasn’t the plush velvet curtains, another chandelier or even the plastic on the furniture that caught Tony’s attention. It was Nico, shirtless, his neck muscles straining as he cursed the ceiling in a guttural language Tony didn’t understand.

Every muscle on Nico’s torso was deeply defined; his face red, his black curls glistening with sweat as they kissed the top of broad shoulders. This was a man deeply tormented; a beautiful man fighting a shift into something decidedly not human. Jet black scales covered Nico’s arms and chest, receding one minute and reappearing the next. Tony had never known his other shifter friends to have so much trouble with their animal half; with the exception of Sin and he’d only heard about that second hand. But this, watching Nico…The man needs help.

“Special Agent Draig!” Tony stepped into the room, his heart threatening to break his ribcage. “Nico, calm down; deep breaths.” Huh, who am I kidding? I’m the one who can’t breathe. An indescribable power surged around the room; something that crackled the air and sucked the life right out of it. Despite his fears, Tony moved forward. Never let it be said the mating pull didn’t work both ways; Tony could feel his own inner battle raging – get the fuck out of the room or help the man some power decided he should be bound to for life.

“Nico.” Tony touched Nico’s back, his fingertips burning. “Tell me what’s wrong. Maybe I can help.”

Thank you all so much for jumping in and casting your votes for the Ra and Seth competition. I had 59 comments in total and a couple off the blog who wanted to be noted too. The competition for Ra’s picture was really amazing and ended up in a tie – it seemed you were torn between Ra holding the baby or Ra on his bike. The competition for Seth was just as heated but picture number 5 took it by one vote.

Time To Vote – Seth and Ra Competition

I was blown away by the wonderful responses I got to the Seth and Ra competition – there were so many amazing entries, I was so glad I’d decided to put this to a vote.  Some people sent me pictures of both, some just of Ra or Seth, but I have divided them up so you can see the offerings for both. There are three galleries for Ra and two for Seth, so take your time.

Please use the number under the picture and let me know your votes in the comments below. I know it’s hard but please try and keep it to one pick of each…or definitely no more than three lol.  All votes will be tallied on Monday and the winners announced then 🙂 And yes, one random commenter will be in to win too.

Ra – gallery one (1-9)

Ra – gallery two (10 – 18)

Ra – gallery three (19-26)

Seth – gallery one (1-9)

Seth- gallery two (10-15)

Personally, I don’t think I’ve seen so many good looking men all on one page – have fun voting 🙂

Competition Time – A Tiger’s Tale picture contest


Hi everyone, I was so overwhelmed by the wonderful support my first ever MPREG story received from my lovely readers. You all seemed to love the sweet Seth and the clumsy, but well-meaning Ra. So now I need your help. As you know, I try and keep a picture gallery on this site, of the inspirational photos I use for my characters.  Usually finding those pictures is the first thing I do when I start a new book. But I didn’t do that for this book.

I had a rough idea of what I thought my characters looked like of course, especially in animal form, but I never found pictures of these two wonderful men, which means I can’t include them in my gallery.

So I am having a competition. I want my lovely readers to find me a picture that best describes Ra or Seth. I will post all of the pictures in a blog post on Friday April 7th and allow you all to vote. The person who supplies the winning picture of Ra and/or Seth will win either print copies of any of my back list, OR an advanced e-copy of Tell Me The Truth, book five of Stockton Wolves which will be out the middle of April.

If you haven’t read the book yet, you can find A Tiger’s Tale here.  You can send me your pictures via email, as a comment below, or on my FB page. By the way, if you follow me on Facebook you may notice I now have a new group on there, Lisa’s Wolfpack, set up for me by one of my readers. It’s a place where my readers can post pictures of men they’d love me to write about, share stories about some lovely animals and generally chat about my books. I’d love to see you there.

I have been working lol – Excerpt

I know I’ve been a bit AWOL lately, but that’s because I have been working on two books this month.  Firstly, thank you so much for all the really lovely positive comments I got regarding A Tiger’s Tale. It seemed a lot of you loved the idea of a rabbit and tiger and I’ve been asked if Simon’s story will be next. It will be; he won’t shut up in my head, which makes writing the books I am working on really awkward 🙂

My main focus for this month has been the Captain and Nico’s story from Stockton Wolves. As it will be the last book in the series, I want to make sure I have all my lose ends tied up and the story got a wee bit more complicated than I thought it would. But we do see the rest of the pack/coven as well, and I hope you enjoy it. That will be out around the middle of April.

The second book I am working on wasn’t meant to be a book. I was writing a short story for Stormy Glenn’s Manlove competition that will be running in April and I decided to write about Bronson. I don’t know if you remember him, but he was Asaph’s friend and fellow wolf shifter in Harder in Heels.  I found him a mate, and oh my goodness, that mate came with a few issues. So my short story (two excerpts of which will be showcased in Stormy’s competition) will now be a book, released early May.

So you see, even though I’ve been quiet I have been busy. I have so much more coming up in the next few months. In the meantime, if you haven’t been on this site lately, then take a look around. My lovely PA, Terri Nova has been making some changes. My books are now all available not only on Amazon and through Smashwords, but also on Seattoskybooks and Payhip. Dear Terri has been updating all the links on the pages, trying to update my picture gallery (I owe her some pictures lol) and generally helping me get the word out about my books.  I truly appreciate it, as it gives me a lot more time to write.

But anyhow, I promised you an excerpt, and this is from Tell Me The Truth – Book 5 of the Stockton Wolves series. Have a wonderful weekend 🙂

Excerpt (unedited)

Nico growled as he noticed Jack’s car still sitting where it’d been parked hours before, clearly visible from his bedroom window. After a short nap, leaving both men refreshed and hungry, Nico decided to take Tony on a date. They were going to stop by Tony’s house for some additional clothes, then head to a quiet club Nico knew in Sacramento. It was unlikely anyone would know Tony there, especially when Nico told him he didn’t need to wear a suit. In casual clothes, his facial hair finally trimmed, his mate was a knockout, or he would be if they got that far.

“He still watching the house?” Tony peered around Nico’s shoulder. “Oops, yep. What are we going to do about him?”

“I’m not sure,” Nico confided. “I’d feel better if I knew if he’d spoken to anyone, or if this is personal undertaking.”

“Easy enough to find out,” Tony said, pulling his phone from his rumpled pants. Tapping his screen, Tony said, “Hi Carol, is there any chance you can patch me through to the FBI office?…yes, the one officers Draig and Schubert were from…what…no, nothing to do with my family situation. I just had a thought about their case and wanted to follow through before I forgot. You know what I’m like…yes…thank you….” Tony hummed as he waited.

“Hello Sara, how are you this afternoon…good…it’s Captain Reynolds from the Stockton Precinct, I was wondering if you could patch me through to Officer Schubert…hmmm…he’s not? They’ve both taken leave? Oh well, never mind…no, it wasn’t urgent. If you could send my secretary the details of whoever is handling their case now, I’ll get in touch with them later. Thank you…have a nice day.”

“There we go,” Tony said, tapping his screen and slipping his phone back in his pocket. “You’re both on leave. Rather strange, isn’t it? The both of you taking leave at the same time.”

“We’ve done it before,” Nico said without thinking. Then he added as he saw Tony frown, “people in the office know we’re friends. We’ve taken vacations together and no one thinks anything of it.”

“Keep talking, big guy,” Tony said, “your foot is getting further and further down your throat.”

“Can your friends help?” Nico asked, turning back to the window, wanting to distance himself from an awkward conversation. “Maybe pull him in for something. Loitering maybe?”

“I could get a couple of uniforms out here,” Tony agreed, “but if he decides to confide the reason he’s watching your house, the whole situation could turn awkward pretty quick. Isn’t there a back way out of this estate?”

“Not unless you want to climb a twelve-foot wall,” Nico said glumly. He dropped the curtain and pouted at his mate. “I wanted to take you out, just the two of us. Show you our relationship is more than sex.”

“I know it’s more than sex, big guy, and we’ve got a world of time to make that happen.” Tony stepped forward patting Nico’s chest. “Why don’t you call Jack in, I’ll go hide in a bedroom somewhere and try and keep these newfangled jealousy feelings under control.”

“I haven’t got a clue what I’m going to tell him,” Nico admitted.

“Can he handle knowing about the paranormal world? Is he the type to run off the media, or keep the secret? Is he going to demand proof or can you make him think he’s just eaten something that’s fucked with his brain and he was having apparitions?”

“I haven’t got a clue.”

“Then my advice is to let him lead the conversation, keep your answers short and deny, deny, deny.”

End Excerpt – have a lovely day 🙂
