Shift Happens, but can they keep it professional? #Giveaway #Excerpt


     SHE NEEDS TO CLEAR HER NAME. HE NEEDS TO CHAPERONE. CAN THEY KEEP IT PROFESSIONAL?

·     

Andrea McNelly's job as a government agent is not asking questions, but then a routine assignment turns into a botched assassination of a Master Vampire's human servant. Answers become a priority. Her search to discover the truth is riddled with obstacles, the largest being an oversized Werewolf who resembles a Norse god. Andy can't afford the distraction he offers, because if she fails, she faces eternal enslavement.

Wick's job is to monitor Andy, but he prefers more intimate activities, none of them G-Rated. His choices, however, are often not his own. His ability to help Andy is limited by his bond to the Master Vampire.

Facing many trials and challenges along her path to redemption, Andy learns the value of her freedom might be set too high.









Excerpt:

A large black wolf trotted into the clearing to confront me. He had a white-tipped snout, white boots and mitts and would have looked cute had he not been the most intimidating Werewolf I’d ever seen. Standing tall and solid, power rolled off of his body. His eyes bore into mine. I sniffed the air. The strong Werewolf scent of rosemary swirled around me, strong and seductive, laced with sugar. A weird fuzzy sensation spread out from my chest. Whoa.

Alpha.

My other form growled low, demanding release, straining against my skin. The energy of the wolves built—layers upon layers of excitement and impatience. The air pulsated with anticipation. They could sense the imminent kill.

Let me out! My other form repeated, throwing her power against my built up walls, howling in defiance.

When the energy of the Werewolves surged, I finally released her. My wolf form flowed out fast, wiping out the feline in little more than a heartbeat. Smaller, weaker and the size of a natural wolf, a Shifter in this form was no match for a Werewolf, especially a dominant one. I had time to meet the eyes of the Alpha for only an instant before the pack leapt forward. My limbs shook. It went against every instinct ingrained within me, but I rolled onto my back—submissive.

  1. Sounds like a great book! I love paranormal especially wolf shifters. To be able to step out of reality and read something so out of this world.

  3. One of my favorite things about this genre is that the writing makes it so easy to disappear into a new world where the impossible is possible. It makes me realize that perhaps some of the things that may feel impossible, really are possible.

  4. The feeling of excitement I get from reading these books. I love crawling into books and not coming out until they are finished, I have this with every genre I read, but paranormal fantasy books give a little bit of an edge, sometimes it's that I wish I was in that world myself and for that short period I am and it feels amazing! :)

    1. I often wish I lived in the worlds created by authors. I'd love to be in Kim Harrison's The Hollows! Or Patricia Briggs' Mercedes Thompson's! My husband sometimes has to wave food in front of my face to get me to take a break from reading to eat! lol

  8. The very best thing for me is it truly is an escape for me. When I'm reading this genre it doesn't spark that 'oh that reminds me I need to do..." I can actually get lost in the story, the characters, the surrounding.
