Sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone to find happiness.

Kin always knew his job as an enforcer wouldn’t last forever. His mother is planning his marriage, to a woman she’ll choose to help advance their family name and fortune. The only way he has out of it is finding his mate, but there’s no quick or easy way to do that.
Saul has thought himself crazy for most of the past ten years. He sees half-transparent animal faces layered on some people’s human faces, and he voluntarily walked into a psychiatric hospital when he was twenty-three. Now he’s thirty-four, and he feels like he missed out on life. When his sister pushes him into leaving the hospital, he hesitates, but she won’t take no for an answer, no matter how much their parents pay Saul’s doctor to keep him there.
When Kin and his team are sent to make sure Saul gets out without any problems, Kin expects the mission to be routine. Instead, he knows Saul is his mate as soon as they meet. Will Saul finally manage to walk out of the hospital? And is Saul really crazy, or is there an explanation for what he can see?

Sometimes you have to let the fear go to welcome happiness.

Calvin was assaulted when he arrived in Gillham two months ago, after living on the streets for two years, but it wasn’t enough to dissuade him to leave the town and his new life. He never expected to be assaulted again, though, especially not by the same man.
Alex has been envious ever since both his brothers found their mates, but at only twenty-one, he never expected to find his own. He especially didn’t expect the man he rescues from a beating to be it.
Calvin and Alex have to learn to navigate their new relationship. Calvin is shy and hesitant, and Alex does his best to give him enough time to get used to his presence. They move in together—as housemates—but their fragile relationship is threatened by the appearance of a teenage brother Calvin didn’t know he had. What will this mean for Calvin and Alex’s relationship? Will Calvin finally believe Alex is in it for life, or will he let his insecurity win?

#releaseday Aeron and #giveaway

As you all know, Aeron, the last Whitedell book, came out yesterday. It was weird to write that book knowing it was the last one, which is probably why I’m writing a short Christmas story set in the mansion and also why Nysys has already made an appearance in the first book of the Council Enforcers Series. There’s just no way to keep him away 🙂

I wanted to do something special for the release, but I’ve been having personal problems. You know that saying when it rains, it pours? Exactly. I swear that if I was reading about all this in a book, I’d think it was overly dramatic. So instead of whatever I thought to do, I’ll just give away two copies of Aeron, one for the direct comments on this post, and one for the comments on Facebook. Just tell me how you feel about the end of Whitedell and a new series in the same universe, and I’ll choose the winners next Saturday, and if you already have the book,  then you’ll win a copy of the first Council Enforcers Series book 🙂

If you don’t want to wait and see if you won, you can buy Aeron here http://www.extasybooks.com/Aeron/

Everyone deserves a second chance, even enemies.

Aeron first saw his mate on the battlefield. Jericho is a hunter, and after he was wounded, Dominic decided to keep him close inside the mansion’s infirmary. Aeron has been visiting him during the night because he’s not ready to talk to him just yet, but he knows things need to change, and fast.

Jericho thought he was going to be tortured and killed when he woke up in the shifters’ infirmary, but instead, they healed him and talked to him as if he hadn’t tried to kill them. Dominic Nash wants answers, and Jericho knows he can’t keep quiet forever, especially after finding out he’s the mate of one of the mansion’s inhabitants.

Most pride members don’t trust Jericho. He understands it, but he still wants to help since they were able to change his mind about shifters. He knows going back to Brad and the hunters might get him killed, but he needs to do it, both for Brad and for Aeron. Will he be able to stop Brad from attacking the pride again? And if he doesn’t, what will happen to the pride, and to him and Aeron as a couple?

#ReleaseDay Dallas

Dallas  is now out on Extasy Books 🙂 http://www.extasybooks.com/dallas/ You can also preorder it on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Dallas-Gillham-Pack-Book-16-ebook/dp/B01LZL0VZY where it’ll be available on September 30.

Not all things that look too good to be true are wrong.

Dallas is back in Gillham. He left the town and the pack after he was rescued from the lab, but he hasn’t been able to go back to fully living his life, and he hopes changing will help. He’s eager to work for Kameron and to be the pack’s doctor, even with the new problems the pack has.

Hamilton is Morin Glass’ best friend, and he wants answers. He’s seen the news about the man who became an animal, and he knows Morin and his boyfriend have to somehow be involved. He travels to Whitedell to get an explanation, and once there, he finds more than he was expecting.

Hamilton doesn’t seem to have problems accepting shifters, and Dallas is glad even if hesitant, but it doesn’t mean their life is easy. Hamilton’s life is in New York and he has to make a decision. Being with a shifter could be dangerous for him. Humans might know about them now, but it doesn’t mean they accept them. What does the future hold for Dallas and Hamilton, and for the pack?

#ReleaseDay Benjamin

Hi everyone 🙂 As you probably know, Benjamin will be out tomorrow on Extasy Books! You can already order it http://www.extasybooks.com/benjamin/ and you’ll be able to download it a few hours early to read it before everyone else 🙂 The book will be available for preorder on Amazon probably on Friday and will be available for download on the 19th.

So here’s the blurb, the cover, and an excerpt 🙂

Sometimes good things come out of bad situations.

 Benjamin was hurt when the pride was attacked, and he’s had enough of the infirmary. He’s been stuck there for a week, and when he decides to make a run for it, the last thing he expects is to meet his mate in Dominic’s office.

Lucas knows about shifters. His best friend Heath is a bear shifter, and they’ve lived together for years. He’s surprised when Heath’s alpha, Dominic Nash, calls him and asks for his help, but before he can do anything, Benjamin stumbles into his life and tells him they belong together.

Both Benjamin and Lucas are happy about being mates, but not everyone is. Benjamin’s family suddenly arrives in Whitedell, and added to the hunter problems the pride is still facing, they’re not making life easy. Will Benjamin and Lucas be able to stay together even when the circumstances aren’t the best?

benjamin300.jpg

Benjamin scowled at Keenan, who was stopping him from leaving his room. “I’ve been cooped up in here for a week.”

Keenan crossed his arms on his chest. “You’re not going anywhere until Jared comes by and tells me I can let you go.”

Benjamin threw his hands in the air. “What the fuck is it with you guys?”

“We don’t want you to get hurt again.”

“I’m fine. I’ve spent a week in the infirmary and a week lazing around in my bed. Noem came by the other day and finished healing the last wound. I can take a walk in the hallway.”

“Of course you can. When Jared says so.”

“I hate you.”

Keenan beamed. “I love you too, Benji.”

“Don’t call me Benji. I hate it.”

“How about Ben, then?”

The only person who called Benjamin Ben to his face was Lucas, and Benjamin wanted to keep it that way, but maybe if he gave in Keenan would let him go. “Fine, you can call me Ben.”

Keenan’s smile grew and Benjamin tried to pass by him, but he didn’t budge. “Nope.”

“Oh, come on!”

“Still nope.”

Benjamin gave up and went to sit on his bed. He was starting to hate the thing as much as he’d hated his room in the infirmary. He’d been happy to escape the infirmary a week before, but he hadn’t realized he was only trading one cell for another. He hadn’t seen the outside of his room ever since Lucas had carried him there, and while he wasn’t one to go out much, an entire week sequestered in a room was weighing on him.

“Who named you guard dog anyway?”

Keenan seemed delighted by being called a guard dog, and Benjamin shook his head. Some people living in the mansion were weird, weirder than Benjamin was used to. “No one. I just happened to see Jared earlier and he told me he’d be coming by your room sometime today to check on you.”

“And you decided you needed to check on me too?”

“Well, if your attempted escape from the infirmary was any indication, I knew you’d try to leave your room before you’re ready.”

“But I am ready. Seriously. It doesn’t even hurt anymore.”

Keenan waved Benjamin’s words away. “Jared is the doctor, not you.”

“The body is mine, though. I think I know better than anyone if I feel pain or not.”

“Yeah, well, like last week showed us, you don’t really take pain into consideration when you decide to do something.”

Benjamin flopped on his back. There was obviously no way for him to leave. Where was Lucas when he needed him? He’d be able to swat Keenan aside like the annoying fly he was and free Benjamin.

Keenan’s phone rang and he answered, keeping his gaze on Benjamin as if he thought Benjamin was going to attempt something while he was on the phone. It was tempting, but Keenan was still standing in front of the door, cutting off the only way out Benjamin had.

“Okay, I’ll bring him.”

Benjamin looked at Keenan, wondering who he was talking to. Keenan hung up and grinned. “Jared asked if you were able to go down to the infirmary.”

Benjamin was up before Keenan could finish the sentence. “Let’s go.”

Kir #releaseday

Kir, book 14 in the Gillham Pack series, will be out tomorrow. You can still preorder it and get it a few hours earlier 🙂 http://www.extasybooks.com/kir/

Letting people in is never easy, but sometimes you have to in order to be happy.

Kir is one of the exotic shifters rescued by Craig. He never went home, choosing to stay with the Gillham pack, but he never really integrated himself into the pack. He wanted to make sure the pack wouldn’t betray him like his skulk had. He took his time to observe, and he finally decided it was time to make friends.

Quinn knows he’s a prickly bastard. He’s had to hide behind that façade for most of his life, and now he can’t step out from behind it, not that he wants to. It feels safer to keep most people at arm’s length. He didn’t expect to find his mate when Kameron called him and Malik to help with the rival council, though, and he knows Kir is probably the only one who can wiggle his way into his heart if he lets his guard down.

Kir does his best to get under Quinn’s shell, but when the man punches him and tells him to stay away, he gets the message, even though he still hopes he’ll be able to change Quinn’s mind. He knows he has a great opportunity when Kameron assigns him as a bodyguard for Quinn, but will he be able to protect Quinn and make him fall in love with him? Will Quinn finally let someone in, or will he stay safely ensconced in his hard shell?

kir300

The crowd in the living room shifted, and Kir noticed someone walking toward him. He didn’t have to see the guy’s face to know it was Corbin. His costume made it obvious.

Kir chuckled. Corbin was wearing a dark gray costume with a hood and fur bits on his arms and his left shoulder. His right shoulder was covered with a metal piece, its ties running around Corbin’s torso and holding a blade behind his back. Red fabric was wrapped around his waist, along with a belt.

Corbin stopped in front of Kir and peered at him from under the hood.

“Assassin’s Creed? Really?” Kir asked.

Corbin shrugged with his fur-covered shoulder. “Jago thought it was fitting.”

“It is. I wouldn’t be surprised if no one but me wants to talk to you tonight, though. The costume isn’t helping your harmless image.”

Corbin crossed his arms on his chest. “That’s because I’m not harmless, not because I’m dressed like this.”

“Oh, did I offend you? I didn’t mean to.”

Corbin punched Kir’s shoulder. He didn’t put much force in it, but it stung anyway, and Kir made a mental note to wait until Corbin was too far away to hit him before making fun of him next time.

“Where is he?” Corbin asked.

“Where’s who?”

“Your mate.”

Kir arched a brow. He hadn’t been aware people knew about him and Quinn. “What do you mean?”

Corbin pushed his hood down and mirrored Kir’s expression. It was something he did quite often, almost like he wasn’t sure what expressions went with the feelings he had. He was trying, but sometimes the results were funny, and sometimes they were just plain creepy.

“I’m talking about the small council member.”

Kir groaned and looked around to make sure Quinn wasn’t anywhere where he could have heard Corbin. Kir hadn’t seen him since he’d run off, but he wanted to be sure before Quinn decided to stomp all over Corbin. Kir wasn’t sure who would win.

“Quinn,” he said, hoping Corbin would never again use the word small to describe Quinn.

“That’s his name?”

“Yes.”

“So where is he?”

“Eh. Around, I think.”

“Why isn’t he with you?”

“Probably because he hates my guts.”

Corbin narrowed his eyes. “He does? Because I can—”

“Kill him for me, I know. Thanks, but no.”

“Why does he hate you?”

Kir sighed. “I’m not sure if it’s hate or something milder, but yeah, he doesn’t seem to like me much.”

“But why? You’re nice, and you’re hot. I mean, I’d have sex with you if I wasn’t already mated to Jago.”

Kir closed his eyes, took a deep breath, and opened them again. “Thanks, Corbin. I’m going to take that as a compliment.”

Corbin nodded. “It was.”

“Great. So, I don’t know why he doesn’t like me, but it’s not going to stop me from trying to break through, don’t worry.”

“Good.”

André #Excerpt

Book 22 in the Whitedell Pride Series, André, will be out tomorrow. You might want to reread Ani before you get to this one, because that’s where Nicky makes his first appearance 🙂

You can still preorder André on the Extasy Books website. If you do, you’ll be able to download it a few hours early!  http://www.extasybooks.com/André/

Sometimes we punish ourselves more heavily than anyone else could.

 André is used to shifters. He considers Dominic Nash, the Whitedell pride alpha, like an older brother, and loves spending time with the pride. He’s not looking for a mate, even though he hopes he has one somewhere.

Nicky was abandoned by his pride when he lost the challenge for Dominic’s council seat the year before. He refused Dominic’s offer to stay with the pride and become a member, and instead fled to the human world, where he works in a bar. The last thing he expects is for his mate to be the pretty man who walks into the bar and gets drunk.

When André isn’t able to go back to the mansion on his own, Nicky decides to drive him there. He doesn’t know how the pride will greet him, and once André is safe, he flees. André is his mate, though, and he feels drawn to the mansion. He needs to keep André safe, and if that means making the pride’s battles his own, Nicky will do it eagerly, even if it means going against human hunters when they attack.

Andre300

“Can you all shut up? I’m trying to watch a movie,” Nysys grumbled.

André looked at him. “Really? And here I thought you were trying to suck Morin’s tonsils out.”

Nysys scowled. “I wasn’t. He doesn’t have them anymore, so I can’t suck them out.”

“You seemed to enjoy trying, though.”

“Yeah, okay, but now I want to look at the sexy men on TV.”

“You don’t need to hear them to do that.”

“Shut up and make out with your mate.”

André snorted, but he did stop talking to Nysys. He could still talk to Nicky without disturbing Nysys too much, though. “See?” he said, leaning closer to Nicky. “I told you no one cared.”

Nicky slowly nodded. “It’s hard to believe, but yeah, I see.”

“No one holds anything against you.” André hoped seeing Delevan and the others welcome him so openly would help Nicky get over his guilt and his self-hatred. André understood where it came from, and he knew it would take more than a dinner for Nicky to let it go, but Nicky couldn’t continue spending his life like a hermit.

“I’m beginning to believe that.”

“Jeesh, guys,” Nysys said. “Get a grip, will you? You’re starting to sound mushy.”

André wasn’t sure whether he was talking to him and Nicky or to the guys on TV, but before he could ask, Nicky leaned forward and asked, “Around your neck?”

He paused, his eyes widening as he realized what he’d said. Nysys blinked at him, then started laughing, and Nicky relaxed next to André.

“You’re funny,” Nysys said. “I wouldn’t have thought, but you are. Nice one.”

Morin leaned close to Nysys. “Weren’t you the one who wanted to watch the movie and told them to shut up?”

“Yeah, but he made a joke. Did you hear that?”

“I did.”

“Right. You’re no fun, mister.”

Morin grinned. “I don’t think you really think that. You didn’t last night anyway.”

“That’s because you had your dick in my—”

Morin slapped a hand on Nysys’ mouth and smiled at André and Nicky. “Sorry. I’ll make sure he stops talking from now on.” He moved his hand away and Nysys opened his mouth, but before he could say anything, Morin kissed him. Nysys moaned, and André inched close to Nicky, because damn if that didn’t give him ideas.

“Do you think they’ll go farther than kissing?” he asked in a whisper.

#releaseday Simon

Hi everyone 🙂

I’ve been away for a few days, first because I was at the Euro Pride Con in Berlin, then Orlando happened and I wasn’t up for social media, so I just spent a few days with my son and reading fluffy hockey fanfiction (fitting since my team won the Stanley Cup). Anyway, I’m back, as much as I can be anyway.

Today is release day at Extasy Books, and that means you can get your little hands on Simon! Some of you (those who preordered it) already have it, and I’m pretty sure some of you are already reading it. For those who aren’t, you can find it here http://www.extasybooks.com/simon/

There will be a change in release days from next month. Extasy will release books every Friday instead of every 1st and 15th. That means the Whitedell Pride Series will release on the 2nd Friday of the month and the Gillham Pack on the 4th.

What you’ve been waiting for usually happens when you stop hoping.

Simon has been watching all his friends find their mates and fall in love, but he’s still waiting for his. He knows he’s young and that he has time, but time doesn’t keep him warm at night and doesn’t make him feel loved. He yearns to have that, especially after growing up with his parents and his brother.

Malik is both the alpha of his school and a council member. When Kameron asks him and his best friend, Quincy, to help deal with Tom, the man who’s dead set on eliminating him, the last thing Malik expects is to meet his mate. He knows they’ll have to talk and to make decisions, but Simon makes what he wants very clear, and Malik doesn’t even think of saying no.

Simon and Malik don’t waste time and mate right away. However, Tom is still threatening, and Malik, along with Kameron and Quincy, need to find a solution, or they could lose everything.

“I have better things to do than to be here,” Quincy whined.

Malik rolled his eyes. Of course Quincy had better things to do. “You need to groom your wings?”

Quincy gave him a glare that would have scared most people, but Malik wasn’t most people. He knew Quincy well enough to know he might glare a lot, but he really was a softie at heart. You just had to look really deep to find that soft part of him.

“I don’t get why Kameron can’t deal with this on his own.”

“Why should he? This is exactly why the council was created.”

Quincy didn’t look at him as he answered. “I know that, but the rest of us don’t have problems dealing with whatever comes our way.”

“The worst thing that happened to your nest is when those rat shifters decided to dig their home just under your house. You just had to look at them with that glare of yours to make them scurry away.”

Quincy shrugged. “So? I still took care of them on my own.”

“We’re talking an entire other council here, Quincy.”

“Don’t call me Quincy,” Quincy snapped, and Malik smiled. He hid it by turning to look out the car window. Quincy might be a softie at heart, but Malik would gain nothing by antagonizing him too much.

He stayed silent until Quincy finally sighed. “Fine, you’re right.”

“I know I am.”

“And you’re a smug son of a bitch.”

Malik grinned and looked at Quincy. “I can’t deny that.”

Quincy glared again. “Anyway, Dominic is taking care of those hunters on his own.”

Malik rolled his eyes. “The mansion is easier to protect. They all live together. The pack members don’t.”

“I can’t believe a human was able to slip under pack security.”

“Someone made a mistake. It happens.”

“It shouldn’t. Kameron’s pack members have the right to feel safe in their homes.”

“True, but you know Kameron is doing everything he can.”

“Yeah, yeah. I know.”

“And that’s why we’re here to help.”

“You don’t have to remind me.”

“I thought I might have to, since you’ve been bitching about it ever since we left the nest.”

The glare didn’t completely disappear from Quincy’s face, but it softened. “Marla is supposed to give birth in a few weeks.”

That explained why he didn’t want to be there. “Your sister will be fine. You know these things take time, and you can call a Nix to get you there when she calls to tell you she’s in labor. You won’t miss the birth.”

Quincy turned into the road that led to the heart of the pack—Kameron’s house.

Malik watched him for a few moments. “If you really don’t want to be here, I can call someone else. I’m sure Celina won’t mind coming, or I could ask Neil.”

Quincy snorted. “Like he’s going to leave his mate. She’s pregnant again.”

“I can be here alone. Cole is here, and Dominic isn’t that far.”

Quincy waved Malik’s words away. “I’ll be fine. You’re right, I just need to call a Nix when I need to.”

“I didn’t think you’d be so reasonable. I expected you to bitch for at least a few more days.”

Quincy glared—again. “I will, just not to you. You don’t care when I bitch, so it’s no fun.”

Malik grinned. “I knew you did it because you have fun.”

“Oh, you found out my secret. Whatever will I do now,” Quincy deadpanned.

“You’ll find another way to annoy me.”

“I don’t think anything ever annoys you. You can even resist during an entire conversation with Nysys.”

“I don’t understand what you have against Nysys. Sure, he’s a bit over the top, but—”

“A bit? That guy’s so over the top he might as well live on the roof.”

“Did you just make a joke?”

Quincy swatted Malik’s thigh. “Shut up.”

“It wasn’t really a good joke, but it’s more than I’ve heard you say ever since I met you. Maybe you are a real human after all.”
