Tucker didn’t know how long he’d been gone, but he tracked the scent of fear from that low-life piece of shit until the trail went dead. He tailed him into the industrial area of Blackford where it came to a dead end. The bastard had hitched a ride, and that made it damn near impossible to find him.

Caleb had texted him to ask for an update and let him know they had taken Kelsey back to the farm. He started making his way there. He needed to see Kelsey and make sure she was okay. The urge to shift as he remembered how she struggled against her ex’s tight grip was damn near impossible to fight. He was finding it harder to control his emotions when it came to Kelsey. He was bonding with her, and there was no way to control a bonded male from protecting his mate.

He let that thought wash over him for a moment. Kelsey was his mate. He really hoped she wouldn’t freak out when he told her. It was easier to explain to a shifter about being bonded, but trying to tell a human about a primal urge to claim wasn’t an easy task. They would cross that bridge when they got to it.

When he returned to the tux shop, he searched the area again for clues but found nothing. He decided to cut his losses and head out to the farm to pick up Kelsey. There was no way he would allow her to be by herself tonight or any other night for that matter. She was staying close to him.

The drive to the farm was second nature, and before he realized it, he was pulling in front of the barn. Throwing the truck in park, he raced up the steps to the loft above the barn.

There, surrounded by shifters, was Kelsey. She was pale and looked exhausted. His concern negated his manners, causing him to rush to her without giving anyone else a second thought.

He stalked across the room, closing the distance between them with five long strides. She gasped and jumped from her chair, causing it to crash to the floor with a clunk. She wrapped her arms around him tightly as she murmured something against his chest. He wasn’t quite sure what she was saying, but worry laced through her voice, so she wasn’t mad this time.

“Shhh,” he whispered against the top of her head as he rubbed his hands up and down her back. Once she stopped trembling, he moved so he could see her face. “Are you okay?” She nodded slowly and never took her eyes off him.

“I think you guys should get out of here for the night.” Caleb had joined them in the middle of the loft. “We can talk tomorrow.” He slapped Tuck on the back and went back to Jess, who looked just as tired as the rest of them. Tucker shouted a goodbye to everyone and led Kelsey outside.

He guided her to the truck and opened the door for her, lifting her easily to the plush seat.

“Are you sure you’re okay?” he prodded gently. She nodded and smiled weakly at him. It did nothing to reassure him.

“I want to go home,” she said quietly. Without another word, he shut her door and got into the driver’s seat. The truck roared to life and they set off toward town.

Before long, Kels shimmied over to the middle of the bench seat and rested her head on his shoulder. The sounds of her soft, deep breaths told him she was sound asleep. He wrapped his arm around her and pulled her closer.

Ten minutes later, they were in front of her house. He didn’t want to tell her earlier that there was no way he would allow her to stay at her place until they caught that scumbag Will. It would have upset her, and he would try to avoid doing that as much as possible.

“Kels.” He nudged her until she grunted in displeasure. “We’re here.” She groaned as she sat up and stretched. “I know you’re tired, but I need you to grab a few things. I’m taking you back to my place.” She stared at him in a stupor, still groggy from sleep. “Do you understand?” He opened his door and stepped out, bringing her with him.

“Yeah,” she finally said. “I’ll just grab the essentials tonight. Can we come back tomorrow for the rest?”

“Of course.” He held her hand as they made their way up the sidewalk. His senses were in overdrive, making sure everything was in order. The closer they got to the house, the more his instinct told him something was wrong.

He pulled her to a stop and put her behind him. An unfamiliar scent surrounded the door. He dragged in a deeper breath and caught a hint of something he recognized. Will.

“I need you to stay behind me, okay?” He made sure she agreed before venturing in. The door was unlocked, and that struck him as strange because Kelsey locked her door consistently.

They slowly checked each room in hopes to find an intruder or a clue as to what they wanted. The entire house was in immaculate order, which confused him. Why would they break in and not take anything? They had one last room to investigate. Her bedroom.

He eased the door open and found the room had been tossed. Not a single thing had been left untouched. Clothes were torn, her bed had been flipped, and her windows broken.

Kelsey gasped as she took in the scene. Tears pooled in her eyes as she surveyed the damage. She raced to her bed, searching under the bedding and pillows frantically.

“No, no, no…” she cried. “It’s not here!” Her hands patted every possible area of floor under the bed. When she couldn’t find what she looked for she finally broke down and cried. She covered her face with her hands and sobbed.

“What’s been taken?” he asked as he rushed to her side. “Kelsey, talk to me.” He kneeled beside her on the cluttered floor and waited for her to answer.

The sobs began to wane, and she swiped hard at the tears that streaked her cheeks. “He took my gun,” she stated anxiously. “I’ve had it for years. Just in case.” Desperation furrowed her brow. “I never knew if he’d show back up and take the revenge he always promised. My gun was the only thing that made me feel like I had the power to protect myself.” She glanced around the entire mess of her room. “He didn’t touch any other room because he knew this would affect me more than anything. This is my safe place.” A sniffle escaped as she returned her gaze to him.

“Listen, if you want another gun, I’ll get you one. Tonight.” He cupped her face and brushed his thumbs over her now red cheeks. “But I want you to remember you have me now. As long as I’m breathing, he won’t be able to hurt you. I promise you.” He leaned in and kissed her softly.

She broke the contact and wrapped her arms around his neck and squeezed. The comfort was what she needed, and he would give her anything. Even if it meant the fucker’s head on a platter.

Guest Post: A Whole New Life by Sheri Velarde

Title: A Whole New Life

Genre: Sweet m/f romance

Release Date: February 24, 2018

A Whole New Life Cover

Guest Post:

The idea for A Whole New Life probably started with me watching some mob documentaries on tv, but the theme of the story runs so much deeper than organized crime. The title represents something that I think many people long for at some point in time, A Whole New Life where you can start over and leave your past behind. At the time that I wrote this story I may not have wanted to start over completely, but I was indeed struggling with some health issues which caused financial issues and needed an escape from my reality. A Whole New Life was that escape and I hope those who read it can escape into the story as well for a short time. And isn’t that the whole point of writing and reading, to escape into different worlds and different characters so that you have new ideas and tools to help you deal when you return to your everyday life?

 

Blurb:

A handsome deputy who’s not looking to settle down.

A mysterious woman who’s on the run.

When Deputy Henri Gunther realizes there’s so much more to waitress Jenna Trippleton, his simple small-town life explodes right open. With her safety and freedom at stake, Jenna must decide whether she can put her trust in the one man who’s promised to protect her.

Excerpt:

As two o’clock approached, the officers started throwing cash on the table and getting ready to leave. Of course, it was Deputy Hotstuff who brought everything up to Jenna at the cash register. “It was nice to meet you, Jenna. Welcome to Pella. I’m sure I’ll be seeing you around. Anna send you up to the Bakker place?”

Jenna made change and nodded, trying not to look at those pretty blue eyes that were clearly checking her out. “Yes, she and Adam have been so welcoming, giving me a job and helping me find a place to stay.” She handed his change back. “Have a great day, Deputy.” She tried to smile professionally, but felt like she was grinning like a schoolgirl with a crush, heat rushing to her cheeks.

“You have a great day as well. And watch out for those ghosts up at the bed-and-breakfast.” He winked at her.

“What ghosts?” she asked, confused.

“Didn’t anyone tell you? The Bakker place is supposed to be haunted. Stories have been circulating about that for over a hundred years.” Henri smiled at her.

“You don’t really believe such things, do you?” Jenna scoffed. She’d lived through real hell; ghost stories weren’t going to scare her.

Deputy Hotty kept smiling and handed her his card. “My cell number is on there. You never know when you might want a deputy to come save you from the big bad ghosts. Of course, you can feel free to call me for anything else you might need as well.”

Oh my God, he really is flirting with me, Jenna thought to herself. Outwardly she tried to remain cool as she took his card. “Thank you, Deputy, but I stopped believing in ghosts a long time ago.”

“Why is that?” he asked.

“The living people around me turned out to be scarier,” Jenna answered before thinking. Damn her too-honest mouth sometimes, it always had gotten her into trouble.

Henri’s eyes seemed to focus a little more after her response. “I’m sorry. Still, keep my card and give me a call sometime. I’m good at all sorts of things, not just protecting people from ghosts.” With one final smile and wink, he walked out to join his fellow officers.

ABOUT BELLA
BELLA.jpg

Bella Jeanisse lives for rock music. Addicted to concerts, Avenged Sevenfold, fictional rockers, and blasting music in the car, she can’t get enough. After her father turned her on to Queen, there was no going back. Of course, it didn’t stop there. Playing guitar became a pastime, which didn’t turn into a career… until she started to pen her fantasies and publish them.

Originally from Brooklyn, New York City, she grew up with access to clubs like L’Amour and CBGBs, hung out in Greenwich Village, as well as had plenty of friends in bands. No wonder rockers stayed on her mind. Bringing her ideas to life was a long time coming.

She is now living near Tampa, FL with 3 kids and 2 grandkids, as a single mom. Her family supports her writing even when it seems to take up more time than they feel is necessary. Can’t stop the muse, ya know!

Besides erotic rock star romances, Bella also writes about wild bikers, hot college men and more.

Over the next month I’ll be sending it out to my beta’s for their once over and then off to my editor! The end is in sight and I can’t wait for you all to read Tucker and Kelsey’s story! (To be honest, Tucker is my favourite by far!)

Summer tends to be one of the more spontaneous times in the Michelau household. Mr. Michelau works shift so he gets random weekdays off so that’s when we make our trips to the city, go to the movies, and generally hangout. Camping is also one of our favourite summertime activities and we were lucky enough to get out for a few trips. It’s a great time for us to catch up with some close friends and get some much needed relaxation in.  Not to mention, reading. Lots and lots of reading.

IMG_0155

I’ve been doing accountability posts on Facebook with a couple of my author friends and it’s been really helping me keep up with my writing schedule. (If you are looking for some new reading material then be sure to check out Sheri Velarde and Leona Bushman.)

So, I wil promise to not only share new releases from some amazing authors, but I will also keep you updated on my progress on a regular basis.

So, I will call it a night for now. Hope you all have a good one.

His life is awash with women, fame and fortune—but all he can think about is the sensual woman who walked away from him that night in Vegas.

Guest Post: Pride (The Abcynians, Book 2) by Frances Stockton

Blurb

They have lived for centuries. An ancient, secretive race of were-panthers faced with near extinction. To assure their survival they must conceal their identities and abilities, while protecting mankind from an unimaginable, primordial evil.

Pride: The Abcynians, Book II

Plagued by headaches and memory loss after a life-threatening injury, Rhiannon has spent years confined behind the walls of a decrepit castle. When a loathsome earl attempts to earn her favor with an extravagant painting, she is inexplicably drawn to its depiction of an ancient, mythical race. Believing the Florentine artist could be the key to unlocking her past, she and her maid escape, hoping to enlist his aid. Upon reaching the Piazza della Signoria months later, she is unaware that the handsomest man amongst the lavish merchants is the one she seeks.

Dante Luciano is considered the most renowned artist of his time. His patrons are wealthy and powerful. His charm and prowess with women legendary. Yet, as the adopted son of the king of his kind, he must guard his secrets. For he possesses the heart and soul of a panthera prince, therefore, able to shift into a lion. Taken by the discovery of a rare Abcynian female nearby, he recognizes her as his destined mate. Discovering Rhiannon is stricken with debilitating pain, he takes her home, providing the remedies, protection, and knowledge she needs to survive.

While she heals, they fall in love, beginning to plan a future together. However, when her memory returns, imminent danger looms. It’ll take all of Dante’s abilities and the Abcynians to save Rhiannon from a vicious, beastly foe.

About The Author

frances stockton photo

My love for storytelling began in kindergarten when I created my first fictional characters. Though I’d given them simple nicknames, I’d convinced my family that Red Henry and Green Henry were identical twin brothers in my elementary school.

They were mischievous, rarely did their homework, had trouble with math and spelling, experienced heartbreaking losses, and yes, they even had girlfriends!

It wasn’t until the Henry twins mysteriously moved to a different state that my family realized that they were entirely fictitious and my mother suggested I write the stories down.

A few years later, I began to write, completing my first manuscript at age thirteen. I confess the heroine was a cross between Nancy Drew and a contemporary Laura Ingalls Wilder, who happened to be dating one of the Hardy Boys. But when I’d written ‘the end’ on the very last page, I’d known I had more stories to tell. Of course life intervened, but whether I was in high school, becoming part of a local theater and dance company, working as a Veterinary Technician, earning a degree in History and Secondary Education, or teaching, I was always writing and reading romances.

Finally, I met and married the love of my life and moved from Maryland to Massachusetts in 2001. Shortly after, I proudly joined Romance Writers of America and the New England Chapter, and I’ve been writing faithfully ever since. I love to hear from readers, connect with me through Facebook, Twitter or by email.
