Confronting the Wolf #8Sunday #WeWriWa #PNR

The Weekend Writing Warriors hosts a group of writers who share excerpts of their published works or works-in-progress every Sunday for reader's enjoyment. Please, be sure to check out the other writers in this group. You might find your next great read!

I'm joining again for some Weekend Writing Warrior fun! This week's snippet comes from an upcoming new release called, The Wolf's Bride. This is a paranormal romance set in Regency England. In this scene, the heroine has broken into the hero's rooms and has a pistol pointed at him while he's reclining in a bathtub. A very vulnerable moment!


"I have it on good authority that a woman was killed here last night and you are the man responsible." 

His head lifted.

"How did she die?"

"She was torn to pieces. They say she was ravaged by a wild animal."

He turned his head to the side as if to see her better, but she stood directly behind him. Madeline suspected he might see her silhouette, but he couldn't view her completely. Even if he could, he'd have difficulty identifying her with the hood of her cloak pulled low over her face.

"Why would you think I am responsible if they're saying it was an animal attack?"

"Because I know what you are."

If you'd like to read more of The Wolf's Bride as well as more than a dozen other werewolf stories, you can pre-order Guardian, A Limited Edition Collection of Wolf Shifters.

Two New Releases from @AshKrafton #pnr #urbanfantasy

There are two new reasons to check out Ash Krafton's books today!

Straitjackets and Holy Water is the newest installment of The Demon Whisperer Series. This one is a prequel and takes place before we are introduced to Simon Alliant in Charm City. It gives readers a glimpse of Simon's backstory and how he became the tragic and haunted man he is today. A must read for any urban fantasy reader who enjoys amazing world building and those special readers who have soft spots in their hearts for tortured heroes.

Teenagers make mistakes, but those mistakes rarely involve magic - and they should never result in murder...

Eighteen-year-old mage wanna-be Simon Alliant thought his problems would be over when he used a spell to rid the world of his long-time bully. He figured one little demonic scare and Ritchie would back off. He didn't think the demon would actually kill him. Or steal an innocent child as payment. But the price keeps climbing. This time, the price is what he treasures most in the world - his mother. 

Her mind shredded by the horror of what she'd witnessed, Norma's been marked by the demon who will soon take her, as well. His faith in God stumbling, Simon finds an unexpected source of support: the mysterious owner of a New Age shop who offers him the magical training he so desperately seeks. 

But time is running out. The evil grip on his mom grows stronger each day. Will Simon learn enough mage craft to stop the demon before it claims his mother's life? Or will she become another victim of Simon's greatest mistake?

Also out is Words That Bind with a brand new cover! This book is a paranormal romance featuring an immortal djinn and a woman who is more than a simple therapist. 

Never fall in love with a client...especially when he is an immortal djinn and you are the talisman to which he is bound. 

Social worker Tam Kerish can't keep her cool professionalism when steamy client Mr. Burns kindles a desire for more than a client-therapist relationship--so she drops him. However, they discover she's the talisman to which Burns, an immortal djinn, has been bound since the days of King Solomon...and that makes it difficult.

Ethical guidelines are unequivocal when it comes to personal relationships with clients. However, the djinn has a thawing effect on the usually non-emotive Tam, who begins to feel true emotion whenever he is near. Tam has to make a difficult choice: to stay on the outside, forever looking in...or to turn her back on her entire world, just for the chance to finally experience what it means to fall in love.
