Call Of The Beast

by

Love turns to blood when Shiloh, Alpha of the Catskill Wolf Pack, meets newcomer Austin Turner. Her beast wants the mouthwatering werewolf with a desire like she’s never known. And despite the tattoos running up and down his arms, he seems like the perfect mate. That is until mysterious things start happening in the pack. Then Shiloh finds herself in a race to find out where the violence is coming from, and all signs point to him. Can she stop the violence? Or will her hunger for Austin leave the blood of her own pack on her hands?

 

 

“I’ve been dying to kiss you
ever since I laid eyes on you.” He said his admission a siren’s call in the
quiet of the night. “May I?”
What would the pack think? Their
leader kissing a relative unknown. Uncertainty clouded my judgment for the
first time in forever. I looked back to the pack and realized we were alone in
the clearing. Shouts of laughter and howls could be heard deep in the woods.
They were off doing God knew what.
If there was ever a time to
taste those incredible lips, now was it. Every nerve stood on end as I
swallowed.
It felt very surreal to say,
“You may.”
My beast stood up and cocked her
head. He slid toward me in the night. She stalked closer to the surface. Was
this really happening?
I’m usually the aggressive one
in sexual situations, but this time I just waited. Waited to see what he would
do. The anticipation ratcheted as he brought his hand up to cup my jaw line.
The tips of his fingers reached my ear. I forgot to breathe as his finger
caressed my earlobe.
Then there were his lips. They
came ever closer, inch by inch. My lips ached for him. He stopped though and
just stared at me. I could almost see the stars reflected in his eyes.
“You’re breathtaking,” he
whispered against my lips.
Then he answered my prayers and
closed the space between us.
It was delicate at first. The
softness of his lips played against mine: touching, tasting. It was heaven. The
world fell away as my eyes closed.
Every fiber of my body was
focused on the way his lips slipped over mine. My mind spun as he pulled me
closer still. The heat of his body seared me. I nipped at his lips. He wasn’t
close enough. Urgency flooded through me. I pulled at him. Groaning, he molded
his lips to mine.
Desperate for more of him, I
opened my mouth. My breath hitched as our lips and tongues danced. Heat flooded
through me. My beast reached for him through our lips. She wasn’t the only one
either. I tasted the dusky earthiness of his own beast as he reached for mine.
 
 

 

Hi! My name is Erica Reeder. But you don’t want to know just
my name, do you? You want to know me. The REAL me. Not the veneered person from
the picture. Well, you’re in luck- this is your chance!! And if these questions
don’t satisfy you, my books certainly will. 😉 (If you know what I mean! *wink,
wink- nudge, nudge*)
How
long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
 
I have been writing for forever. Well, pretty close. I have
been writing for 24 years. I know that makes me seem like I’m 100 years old,
but it’s not quite that dramatic. I started writing in 6th grade. I won Young
Authors and it opened up a whole new world (cue the Aladdin music!) I was all,
“Wow, I REALLY enjoyed writing that! Wait…people LIKED it? Hold on, you’re
saying I can do this for a LIVING?! Sign me up!!!” And the rest, as they say, is
history.
How did
you come up with this storyline?
  
I’ve been knocking around the idea of a female alpha who
wears heels for quite some time. I love the idea of a strong woman leading the
pack and completely reversing gender roles. It’s so important to me that she be
feminine too. It gets so old this idea that only manly women can be strong.
Screw that- put on some heels and work it! Anyway, I had the chance to write that
character,
Shiloh, in my last book, Nevermore. She kept calling to me, so I
stopped what I was doing and gave her this story.
What
are the best and the worst aspects of writing?
 
The best aspect
of writing is when I’m writing I understand everything in the world I’m
creating. Good. Bad. Innocent. Evil. It all has a reason. It all has a place.
That is so attractive to me because I don’t always understand the world we are
in. Senseless things happen everyday. I like reason and logic.
You might
be asking what that has to do with Paranormal and Fantasy. That’s a damn good
question! And that’s where I get to be me! I crave the impossible and the
infinite possibilities that go along with the thought, “What if the impossible
WERE possible?” How much fun would that be?! Those are the best parts of
writing to me. The worst aspect of writing is trying to revise the story on the
page to match what’s in my head. There’s so much I want to put in, but as a
writer you can only include what moves the story forward with only a few
auxiliary pieces sprinkled in. That can make the process painful!!!
What
inspires you to write?
 
Sanity.
If I don’t write for awhile, I start to become bitey. I get irritated easily
and unhappy. It’s like my brain forgets why until I write again. Then it all
comes back like, “Oh, that’s right. I need to write to not be a jerk!” I can’t
be sane without it!
If you
were to write a book about yourself, what would you
name it?
 Do You
Want To Touch Me There? An Inspiring Tale of Freedom, Faith, and Glitter
What
are 3 of your favorite lines from Call of
the Beast: Head over Heels
?
 
  1. “Austin Turner had lips that screamed of ecstasy.
    They called to me: taste me, touch me.”
  2. “He broke our kiss only long enough to toss my shirt
    and lace bra to the ground. I took the same amount of time to grab his
    shirt by each side and rip. Buttons popped and fell onto the wood floor
    like rain.
  3. “My beast bumped against me when she noticed it was
    just him and I alone in the woods. She thought she was going to get what
    she wanted. Get what she’d been begging for since she’d smelled him. She whispered to me, Take him.”
What
would your friends say is your best quality?
My sense
of humor.
Are reader reviews important to you? Why? 
Reader
Reviews couldn’t be more important. First it’s direct feedback. If a reader
doesn’t like something, I need to know so I can change it. I write to
entertain, so if I’m not succeeding, there is a big problem! If there are too
many poor reviews, I’ll actually revise an entire book!! It’s also important on
the business side of things. Reviews can sway a reader’s opinion on whether to
buy a book or not. And being able to continue to do what I love means the world
to me.
Name
one funny trait your have that you would like others to know.
 
I have
the uncanny ability to turn almost anything into a sexual innuendo. It’s my
super power.
Favorite
place to eat?
In bed
If you
were one piece of clothing, what would you be?
A skort,
because I’m the cute of a skirt but can’t restrain myself enough from fun to be
anything other than shorts beneath it all.
Tell us
about your other books?
My main
series is about a faerie princess who doesn’t want to be a faerie princess.
She’s been living away from faeries for some time and is a kick-butt bounty
hunter now. The series starts out with her taking the case of a murdered
faerie. During the case, unbeknownst to her she falls for her mortal enemy. I
love the series because her wit and attitude leave me rolling.
Or if
you’ve already read that one, you can pick up Nevermore, the second, here:
If you
could share one thing about yourself that you would like readers to know what
would it be?
 
I love
glitter. Ok, love doesn’t quite cut it. Obsessed. Yeah, that’s closer. Nothing
makes me happier than seeing my glitter all over everything: my kid, my
husband, my yoga mat, my keyboard- you name it. It makes me happy every time.
And that isn’t an exaggeration!
Other
things you never wanted to know about the REAL me: I don’t think anyone ever
sat down and explained the word “Boundaries” to me because I don’t have any. The
ones I do have are just ones that I have to force myself to acknowledge to be a
decent person. I always joke that I need to establish more boundaries because
the ones I have are like lines in the sand. Someone keeps rubbing them out!
(See- I told you. I can’t help it!)
And
because this is my interview, here is a random list of things I love:
Glitter
Cats
Family
Vampires
Hair
Pulling
Jeeps
Laughing
Friends
Faeries
Handcuffs
A Man’s
Chest
Whispering
Music –
which music fluctuates based on my mood. I’m this loving right now.
It makes me laugh and is catchy as hell. Besides, Joan Jett, come on she’s
awesome!
 
That’s all for now. Come on over and see me at
http://www.facebook.com/authorericareeder. We’ll have more fun there!

Erica Reeder spends her free time…wait- what free time?! In her mind, she’d spend it taking trips and playing on the beach with her son and husband. In reality, her time is filled with cooking up kooky characters and scheming plot twists, sprinkled in with playing The Sims and a healthy dose of family time.

The Jaguar’s Consort by Aliyah Burke

USA Today Bestselling and Award Winning Author

Sometimes you’re more than just a mate…



 The Jaguar’s Consort

by

Aliyah Burke

USA Today Bestselling and Award Winning Author
@AliyahBurke96

Lando Vargas has known since he was a boy who his mate is to be and he waited for her to grow up. While Selena Rowe remembers the boy he was, she’s unsure about what he’s telling her in regards to their future together. In fact, what he’s talking about has just been fairytales in her mind.
He convinces her to come for a visit in Brazil, with her friends, to give him a chance to prove it all. She won’t deny the intense physical attraction between them, however, she doesn’t want to give up her own life. What will it take for her to accept her role as the jaguar’s consort?

 

 

She
yawned. “I swear I just went to bed. So, what is it that has you here at my
door three times in less than a day. It can’t be my parents they’re…” She
cleared her throat. “…Not on this continent.”
Her
pulse kicked up and he couldn’t miss the tinge of anger lining her tone.
Interesting. A mystery to solve later on for sure. “I told you. I came here for
you.”
“And
I’m pretty sure I told you that makes you sound stalkerish. So since I’m
exhausted and have a busy day today, you tell me and move along, so I can start
my day way earlier than I had intended.”
“Sarcasm
is sexy on you.”
She
blinked twice and rolled her eyes. “You have sixty seconds to start talking.”
“What
happened to the happy woman who was here last night?” His palms itched to touch
her again. Appease that hunger within him.
“She
has a hangover and is exhausted. But hey, let’s expect me to be cheerful.”
“Perhaps
you should eat something.”
“I had
planned on it. You know, when I woke up hours from now.”
“I’ll
make you something.” He moved to her kitchen, shrugging out of his jacket and
laying it over the back of a chair. “Give me a few minutes.” Lando had no
problem cooking for her. Hell, he’d be fine taking care of her for the rest of
their lives. She just had to come with him back to Brazil.
“Of
course,” she stated drily. “I’m so used to hot men walking into my place and
offering to cook me breakfast.”
He
paused in his search of her fridge. Angling his head, so he could meet her
eyes, he cocked an eyebrow. “Hot? Glad you think so.”
“Of
course, that’s what you would pick out of that statement.”
“It’s
the most important.”
She
smiled, eliciting another purr from his beast. And himself.
Selena
tugged up the shoulder on her shirt, covering the bared skin as she made her
way to one of the chairs around the kitchen table. “What is it I can do for
you, Mr. Vargas?”
“You
have nothing in here,” he said, not answering her question. “Why don’t you have
food in your fridge?”
“I
just got back from a trip and haven’t been shopping.”
Okay,
she had a valid point.
The
scrape of her chair was his only warning she’d moved close. When he turned, she
was there. Right up against him. Tempting him. Daring him.
Gods
help him, he wanted nothing more than to sink his hands in her curls, haul her
close and kiss her. When she was putty in his arms, he wanted to strip her
clothing, and lick her from top to bottom. For starters.
“I’ve
not seen you in years. Why are you here?”
“I
came to bring you home.”
“I am
home. This is where I live. This is where I work.”

 

“But
not where you belong.” He cupped the back of her neck, the connection of their
skin awaking everything within him. The electricity flowed from her to him and
back again. “You know I’m right. You feel it, with nothing more than a simple
touch to your neck. The urge, the need for more. To take off your clothes and
rub against me.” He lowered his head, so it nearly touched hers.
 

 

How long have you
been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I’ve been writing for over ten years now. For me it began
in college when the voices wouldn’t shut up in my head. They were driving me to
distraction and it was hard to focus on my major until I gave them their own
attention. Now they just demand all the time *grin*
How did you come
up with this storyline?
Not really sure, the story took me on the journey. I’m
a pantzer for sure. I don’t plot out my stories, they take me where they want
to go. Since it was a short (at least for me) it was a bit harder and I had to
do a bit more reining in however, when I was first thinking about it, they were
going to end up in the States. That didn’t happen.
What are the best
and the worst aspects of writing?
For me the worst would be my nerves on release day. I’ve done a
bunch of releases and I’m still horribly nervous as I was for my first one. I’m
back to that “Oh this is nothing but crap” feeling and it doesn’t go away for a
while.
The best, easy, I
get to play in worlds that are far from reality as I want them to be. I’m
surrounded by happily every afters. And to me, especially now in this day and
age, it’s much more pleasant for me to be there.
What inspires you
to write?
I guess I
don’t think of it as being inspired, the world is full of storylines if you
take the time to look around you. It’s a need for me, if that makes sense, it
calms me down, putting words to paper, and yes, I still use a notebook and pen.
Happily. Some I put directly into the computer but most of my books I hand
write first. It’s soothing, to create.
How did you conduct your research for **The Jaguar’s
Consort**?
For The
Jaguar’s Consort
, I spent some time researching extinct big cats, jaguars
and leopards more precisely. Found the region I wanted my book around, given I
knew how the hero and heroine met, then branched out from there.
What are 3 of
your favorite quotes from **
The Jaguar’s Consort**?
“One…by your answer just now and
two, you seem a bit too untamed to be from Miami.”
***
Lando licked his lips and counted down the seconds until he could lick
hers.
*** 
Do people call the men in the little ‘I love myself’ coats when you
tell them this line?
*** 
Yes, these would be three of my faves. I had a lot of fun writing this
book.
 
What would your
friends say is your best quality?
Can’t speak for my friends, but
I would hope it was that I’m there for them whenever they need me.
Are reader reviews important to you? Why?
Of course,
reviews (constructive ones) can provide us with insight on how people are
taking our creations. I appreciate each and every person who leaves one for my
stories.
What do you do
when you don’t write? Like in “Real Life”
Real life? I work about 60hrs a week outside the house as well. We have
dogs that I race, course, and show. We also do therapy work so typically once a
week or so I have a dog at a hospital, school, hospice, or something of the
sort. We’ve also done private visits to homebound people. Oh, and I try to
read. Like this year, I took the Goodreads challenge and said I could do 100
books this year. Gonna be interesting but I’m determined.
Tell us about
your other books?
I write across
genres, historical, paranormal, and contemporary. Most of my books are
interracial/multicultural and tend to have some aspect of military in them.
They all don’t but it is one of my favorite things to write about, military.
If you could
share one thing about yourself that you would like readers to know what would
it be?
While I am
horribly shy I love talking/emailing with readers. I will answer each email
personally, and it may take me a bit longer than those who have PA’s but I feel
it’s important for that to be a personal touch that doesn’t go away.
 
Thank you
so much for hanging out with me today! I had a lovely time. Thank you for the
support of my writing.
Happy reading y’all!
