It’s release week for me and two of the other LL&L ladies! Cherie, Lynn, and I, along with our friend Lea Griffith, are all celebrating the release of Under a Moonlit Night, a collection of sexy short stories about shifters.
When Liquid Silver Books first put out their call for submissions for this collection, I didn’t think I’d be subbing anything. But Becca Jameson, the lovely bad influence that she is, said “But you have to!”
Thinking I had a comeback for that, I told her if my muse showed up to the party, I would write something.
So, imagine my surprise when a plot bunny came hopping into my brain, dressed in a bear suit and waving a flag saying “I’m from 1912, write me.”
What happened next eventually became “Ripped Awake,” my story in the Under a Moonlit Night collection. That’s what happens when you’re friends with Becca Jameson: She and your Muse do a sneak attack and ain’t nobody getting out until that story is written.
McCallan’s Secret by Lynn Lorenz
When Carrie McCallan, matriarch of the lumber company McCallans, finally decides to remarry, she’s faced with not only letting a man into her life for the first time since her husband’s death, but telling this man about her family’s secret. Not so hard, unless the secret is your family is a pack of werewolves. Carrie will have to take a chance on Leon Wong and discover if he loves her enough not to turn and run.
Ripped Awake by Vanessa North
Lacey Evans is tired of waiting for something to happen. She always expected more from life. Then a mysterious stranger comes into her diner, confused and needing help, and finally she catches a glimpse of a passion exceeding expectation. Rip went into hibernation in 1911. When he opens his eyes to a changed world in 2012, Lacey is the only part of it that makes sense. What can a one hundred thirty-year-old bear shifter offer a modern woman?
Tracing His Heart by Cherie Nicholls
Carter Jones, known as Jones to his friends, lost part of his soul a long time ago. He had to make a choice between his pack and his heart, a choice that has haunted him and his wolf for years. Rhea Gracefield, Domme, business woman, and lone wolf, was forced out of her pack when the wolf she loved told their secret. What happens when Jones finds his way in to the Domme’s Domain?
Bear With Me by Lea Griffith
Tyee Clark screwed up bad and he’s been hiding to lick his wounds. The last thing he expects is to find the woman he craves more than anything else taunting him. She should know better than mess with a sullen grizzly. Unless she means it. Lily Baskins has been hurt bad and she’s been waiting for the right time to institute a whole lot of payback. She’s not about to let sleeping bears lie. Not when she knows what she wants and is willing to face down a beast to get it. Lily’s had the man. Now she wants the bear.
