Honor of the Wolf by Lori King - Excerpt/Giveaway

Honor of the Wolf
(The Gray Pack Book 6)



Being a Beta wolf in the Gray Pack is one of the highest honors Luke Gray has ever attained, but he wants so much more for himself and his pack. The recent shift in mating habits, has disturbed his idyllic view of their way of life, and worse yet, no one else seems to understand his point of view.

Tavi Reid is a woman full of grit, and determination. She’s come too far, and worked too hard to let an arrogant man with a chip on his shoulder throw her off track. Even if he’s sexy as hell and makes her weak in the knees, she has to stay focused on her daughter and their future.

They are both tested with traumatic new changes to their lives, but will they lean on each other to get them through, or will these two independent individuals end up with disaster on their hands? Honor is not a right, it’s earned…

Excerpt:

Hearing Tavi ask him for the thing he desired most made his balls draw up tight, and his cock twitch painfully behind the zipper of his jeans. With a gentle push, she sat on the edge of the bed with him between her knees. It put her pert breasts at the perfect level for him to devour. Licking the tip of one while he teased the tip of the other, he began to seduce her body with his.

Every stroke was matched with a moan, or a pleasure-filled sigh, and his cock grew harder and hotter. She smelled of jasmine and raw woman. The sexually potent fragrance made his wolf mindlessly happy and wild with the primal desire to sink both his cock and his canine teeth into her, marking her as his own.

He set about worshiping her body with his tongue and his fingers. Falling back on the bed, she murmured words of pleasure and need, sometimes making sense, and other times incomprehensible.
With her pussy spread open to him, he slid his fingers into her pale pink opening, and had to bite his lip at the velvet heat that surrounded them. She was going to be tight. He was larger than most human men, and she was much smaller than he’d expected. Then again, he’d never been with a woman who’d had a child, so he hadn’t truly known what to expect.

What he got was a sexual goddess. She was beautiful, right down to the teeny tiny white lines that dotted her lower abdomen. She bore the scars of her pregnancy, but it wasn’t a turn-off. It actually fulfilled some primal need inside of him to find a woman that could bear his children. A strong mate.
Before he allowed himself to drift too far down that road, he focused his tongue on her sweet cunt, and began teasing her toward her first orgasm of the night. Her flavor was a deliciously salty-sweet blend and the more he got, the more he wanted. The folds of her pussy were soft against his tongue, and moisture dripped from her opening as her hips thrust up against his mouth seeking more from him. He didn’t make her wait for it, instead he focused all of his energy on bringing her to a fast, hard climax. She didn’t disappoint, jerking underneath him as her cunt spasmed around his thick fingers.
To his surprise she was almost completely silent in her orgasm. Her face twisted and her mouth dropped open with a sharp exhale, but no other noise left her throat. If it weren’t for the obvious reaction under his fingers and tongue he would have doubted how good it was for her.

After a few breaths she caught him staring up at her from between her thighs and she blushed. It stroked his ego to see her cheeks stained with pink and her body trembling underneath him.
Bending, he nipped her inner thigh, and she protested. “Ouch! Hey!”

“You taste good.”

Her cheeks grew even redder, but she returned his grin. “I’ll return the favor if you let me up.”
Luke bit back a growl of need, and shook his head. “As much as I’d love to watch you suck my cock, I’m on the edge of my control already. That will have to wait for later.”

Rising above her, he pressed forward and her thighs spread around his hips in welcome. He kissed his way back up her torso to her sweet tits, pleasuring each one with his tongue, and teeth, before continuing to her collarbone. The moment he reached that thick tendon that connected her shoulder to her neck, his teeth sharpened instinctively. His wolf wanted to mate her, and it was going to take everything he had to resist it.

Burying his face in her hair, he could hear her murmuring words of encouragement as her hands began roaming over his bare chest and shoulders. His jeans felt like they were strangling his cock, and he groaned when her fingers made their way down to his zipper.

“Take them off, Luke, please?”

Her pretty plea was music to his ears, and he rushed to release his erection from confinement. It throbbed against her thigh as he shoved his pants to his knees, and she froze.

“Holy shit.”

“What’s wrong, baby?” Luke frowned in confusion and then realized that she was staring at his cock.

“You’re massive!”

He felt ten feet tall with her staring at him in wonder and appreciation, and he let out a loud laugh. “That’s the sweetest thing anyone’s ever said to me.”

“Well don’t let it go to your head, big guy. You haven’t proved you can use it yet.”

Pressing the head of his cock against her labia, he rubbed it up and down her slit, coating it in her juices. “Open up for me, love.”

She pulled her knees up and back, giving him complete access to her sweet honeypot, and he eased it home. It took several gentle thrusts, but before he knew it he was buried balls deep inside of her hot passage and instinct took over.

The Penthouse Prince by Virginia Nelson - Guest Post



Hey, thanks so much for having me today!

I gave a lot of thought to how to explain a day in the writing life of me because I think I’d like to pretend it is super organized and I know what I’m doing. Sadly, like a lot of people, I spend my days putting out fires, rushing from one minor emergency to the next, doing my job, being with family, and sometimes I even catch my favorite shows…but I’ll try.

I get up around six the first time, which is when the alarm clock plays the Dr. Who theme song. My youngest is up around this time and he’s not a big morning person—which means he is cranky and snarly and I either try to joke him out of it before the bus driver has to deal with his morning mood or I steer clear of him and wish the driver the best. I’m no saint…but some days I manage to have him giggling when he goes out the door.

About then, the cats are going bonkers and stalking back and forth across my desk because they are starving to death and, dear god, does no one in this house understand the importance of their food? Our dog, a black lab, generally alternates between tripping me—we’re still pre-coffee—and knocking stuff over. There has been serious discussion about entering his tail in some kind of professional fighting organization…that thing is a lethal weapon.

By eight, I’m poking my older two kids (eighteen and sixteen in May) and reminding them to get up and eat breakfast so they can be logged into their online school by nine. More grumbling and two more zombies rise to stumble around our house knocking stuff over. I own a lot of plastic—a lot a lot. We’re not graceful creatures, but we own it. By nine, I like to be at my desk, preferably with noise canceling headphones on and whatever soundtrack has captured my fancy that week playing, and I work until noonish. Depending on the day, ‘work’ means answering emails, checking kids school stuff online, taking phone calls, paying bills, crying over student loan debt, writing blogs, editing, plotting, revisiting the schedule, creating files…whatever.

At noonish, I break and panic because I have a class in about an hour. I quickly dig out my syllabus, see if anything was due, do whatever it was, and then get in the car and head to campus. While on campus, I sometimes remember to eat a granola bar. I’m usually home from school in the early afternoon, barring society meetings, and then back to work until about four or five.

Around then, I stare at the crock pot and wonder how serious the recipe is about six hours of cooking time and if maybe two hours on high will work…one way or another, dinner happens. I talk to my kids for a bit before heading back to the office around sevenish. I work until nine—bedtime for the school kids—when I remind everyone about showers, teeth, give them kisses and realize, nope…I never did get around to a shower myself.

But, wait…the house is quiet! So, after ensuring the dog has a rawhide and the cats are fed, it is my writing time (barring other deadlines) so I crack open the laptop with the plan to write just a few thousand words while singing along to show tunes—

Then the clock says four am and I fall into my bed, lost to other worlds, and sleep for a couple hours. Before I know it, the alarm is playing Dr. Who…

Each novella offers a look into a different series and world, but each features the power of the wolf. Whether you like your wolves from small town, as billionaires, fighting wars they have to win or wrestling with ancient powers, Under a Wolf Moon has something for you.

Discover never seen before stories!

The wolf moon fills the sky and it’s time to howl!

Warning: Contains alpha heroes and heroines, scorching passion, tough love, family ties, and pack dynamics which bind them together. Sometimes a wolf’s greatest challenge is finding their way home…

Wolf Next Door by Heather Long

When Claire Webster was five years old Tyler Buckley, the wolf next door, told her he was her mate and then ordered her not to play with one of her friends. Butting heads throughout their childhood, her choice to leave Willow Bend tore them apart. Eight years later, she sends a request to the new Alpha—she wants to come home, and when he grants it, she’s both relieved and terrified. The first person she runs into is the last one who ever wants to see her again.

Princess of the Pack by Saranna DeWylde

Marchessa de la Luna’s duty is to the marriage arranged to the enigmatic and powerful, but aging Alpha Antony Rommulus. Her passion is for the rogue Cassius who can give her nothing except pleasure. Marchessa must choose if it will be duty or desire that will decide her fate and that of her pack.

Eternal by Rebecca Royce

Dougal Owens has served on the front line of The Dragon Wars for sixteen years. The last thing this Alpha werewolf expects is his mate to drop in with a plan to end the war. Together, they will battle to save the Wolves or die trying.

Hell’s Playground by Cara Carnes

The Quadrant Alpha once thought Mira’s death was the worst thing that could have happened. Learning she lives, and worse, survived torture and purgatory gives Adrik a chance to save Redemption and his mate.

Odd Wolf by Virginia Nelson

Dara is Alpha and used to taking control of the situation when it goes swirly. A rogue on her turf means a fight, and she’s ready to take him on. A woman with no plans to be tamed and a rogue wolf with no plans to stick around shouldn’t have more than a brief meeting to establish boundaries and be done. However, when Dara meets Lynwood, the call to mate might drown out logic altogether.




This is a great introduction to these talented paranormal authors, I highly recommend every single one of these stories!

Wolf Next Door by Heather Long: Fantastic addition to the world of Willow Bend, I was already in love with the world and it’s premise, so I happily dived into this novella. It was a great story about second chances, and learning to love again. Tyler and Claire were meant to be, so seeing them get to know each other again, was great. It could easily be read by new readers and I would think that Ms. Long’s strong writing skills would hook a new reader.

Princess of the Pack by Saranna DeWylde: Damn, seriously damn. Ms. DeWylde, is a go to favorite of mine even more so now. She writes these amazingly real characters, and yes I know Marchessa is a wolf shifter and how can that be real, but her thoughts her actions, all scream real to me. She’s the kind of kick ass best friend I would love to have, because while she tell you what you might not want to hear, she’ll also gut anyone who f***s with you. Thrown in a very sexy Antony and well, Ms. DeWylde needs to hurry up and write more in this series, a great introduction into what is sure to be a new favorite series of mine.

Eternal by Rebecca Royce: Dragons, wolves, war, and some conspiracy thrown in, with a love story at the core, that survives against all odds. This isn’t a light and fluffy romance. It’s gritty and they’re at war so it’s not a lighthearted romance, but Ms. Royce handles and makes the world a place I want more of. I wasn’t sure how I felt about this story while reading, but I will definitely recommend this series to other readers.

Hell’s Playground by Cara Carnes: Dragons and wolves, and a war with succubi and humans who hate anyone with paranormal blood, and it’s a recipe for a fantastic series. I finished this book, and immediately went looking for more in the series, so it’s a fantastic start to a new series, and I will be anxiously awaiting more. Adrik and Mira have both been through so much, and they’re meant for each other, and they struggled to get their happily ever after. Mira has been through a lot, and I enjoyed the surprises that Ms. Carnes through into the series, and I cannot wait to see who’s book is next and what happens with the war.

Odd Wolf by Virginia Nelson: A female Alpha, sign me up. It’s a nice change, and I really loved that Ms. Nelson has no problem taking the status quo and mixing it up. Dara could be a very Alpha at times, and a bit snappy with Lynwood but she isn’t sure that she can trust his submissiveness. Then throw in a unique conflict and villain, and I will definitely be trying out more of her Odd series, since some great secondary characters almost stole the show. I definitely recommend this one.


Pick this one up, it’s a fantastic anthology and full of all very enjoyable series, and I will be following all of these authors and anxiously awaiting more. 




I received a copy for the purpose of review. I was not compensated for my review. (I also purchased a copy because I enjoyed this anthology that much)
