Tuesday Teaser for Brave!!

Tuesday Teaser!!


Today's teaser is from Brave, Book 4 in The Onyx Wolves Series. This bit is after Parker meets Jake's brothers Kane, Max, Flynn, Dane, Larik, and Gavin, who are also shape-shifting bears. Parker already met Kane briefly in Book 3 but Kane has more of a presence in this book. I'm nearly finished writing this book so watch closely for more teasers and a release date. Enjoy!!

We need to go, now.” Kane stresses as he runs into my room with me and Jake.
I shove the remaining clothes into my bag before turning towards Kane as Jake grabs my other bag from the bed.
“We’re ready.” I reply.
“Good, the rest of your pack are in the truck with my brothers.” Kane replies.
“Lucas…?” I whisper.
“He’s with your silver wolf. He hasn’t let go of him.” Kane replies.
I nod and then glance around at my room before moving forward. Together Kane, Jake, and I run downstairs before we exit the house.
I run towards the garage and grab the keys to my bike and then to my jeep.
“You can take the jeep, Kane.” I state while tossing him the keys. “Jake and I will take my bike.”
Without saying a word Kane grabs my bags from me and Jake before jumping into the jeep while Jake climbs onto my bike. I slip on behind him and then hand him the keys.
The engine roars to life before Jake backs us out of the garage.
Kane stops the jeep near his truck where the others were. Dane, Gavin, and Larik jump out of the truck before getting into the jeep.
Seconds later we take off down the driveway.
The gate opens at an agonizingly slow pace but once it’s open we ride through.
My heart beats wildly in my chest as I tighten my grasp around Jake’s waist as he speeds down the roads, following the jeep and truck.
We don’t make it far before two bikes join us.
They had hunters in full gear riding them.
“Jake…” I stress nervously as they gain ground on us.
“Do you trust me?” Jake asks.
“Yes.” I reply quickly.
He grunts and then revs the bike to go faster. He pulls next to the truck and then glances over to Flynn and Max in the back of the truck.
“I want you to jump, Parker.” Jake states loudly.
Without hesitating I move on the back of the bike. I stand up and then wait for Flynn to hold his hands out towards me.
“Now, Parker…” Jake commands as he moves closer to the truck.
I leap and grab for Flynn.
He manages to grab me before pulling me into the back of the truck. He holds onto me tightly as Jake slows down. Once he’s next to the jeep he moves to stand up on the bike.
Dane reaches out for him and Jake leaps towards the jeep.
My heart nearly skips a beat as he grabs hold of the jeep’s side. He slips and nearly falls but Dane manages to pull him inside.
The bike wobbles for a brief moment before rolling. The hunters behind it don’t get the chance to swerve out of the way as my bike comes their way.
In seconds they hit the road causing pieces of twisted metal and shattered plastic to skid across the road along with the four bodies of the hunters.
“Damn…” Flynn whispers as I bury my face against his chest.
Even though they had been hell-bent on killing us I still didn’t like the thought of taking a life.
There was no way they could have survived a wreck like that and if they had then they were in one hell of a world of hurt.
After a few moments Flynn pushes me to sit down between him and Max.
“You’ve got guts, Wolf.” Flynn states. “I’ll give you that.”
I remain quiet as I watch Jake now sitting in the passenger seat of the jeep behind us.
He gives me a reassuring smile while Flynn wraps his arm around my shoulders.
“Jake is tougher than you think, Sweetheart. That little jump was nothing for him.” Flynn states before snorting. “I imagine that you taking that leap scared him more than anything.”
“His jump scared me.” I reply.
“You really care about him, don’t you?” Flynn replies.
“I do.” I answer honestly.
Even though everything between me and Jake wasn’t real we had become close. I cared about him and the way that he was looking at me now said that he cared about me too.

Happy Reading!!

****


Just when everything seems to be falling apart, it suddenly comes back together leaving James and the clan in a state of shock. One second Ivan was gone and the next he’s living and breathing as if nothing had ever happened. It’s a joyous moment but one that doesn’t feel real.
Once the shock wears off James is left with some unresolved feelings that had been bothering him even before Ivan’s death. They need to be dealt with, but first, he has a detour to take.
That detour takes him to Jack’s hotel along with Drake.
Staying at Jack’s are a small group of hunters; hunters who have ties to the ones who had nearly destroyed the clan. To defeat the threat that they pose James is more than ready to kill. He’s prepared to do whatever it takes to ensure Harper’s safety, but he’s also determined to handle the situation without Erik.
Of course, when Erik finds out about James's secret, he rushes in to take over. His presence alone annoys James. He’s had enough of taking orders and lately Erik has been more overbearing than usual.
They clash, and Erik does something drastic to put James back into his place. It’s a move that ends up nearly costing James his life when they attack the hunters.
After the hunters are destroyed James and Erik are left figuring out how to repair their relationship. They find their way but not before their lives become even more complicated.
Will this new complication destroy their clan entirely or will it bring them closer? Only time will tell.

“James, you can come with me and, Drake, you can go with Jack,” Erik announces.
Drake grunts in agreement while Jack nods his head.
I, on the other hand, sigh while scrubbing my hand over my face. I hated that Erik was going to be right next to me the entire time. He would more than likely keep me from ever having the chance to take down one of the hunters.
“Do you have a problem, James?” Erik questions me.
“As a matter of fact, I do.” I blurt before I can stop myself.
“Jack, do you mind if we have a moment alone?” Erik sighs as he turns his attention towards Jack and Drake.
Jack nods and then pats Drake’s arm. “Come on; I’ll show you which room we’ll be going in.”
Without another word Jack and Drake exit the office.
Once they’re gone, Erik releases a low growl. “I’m getting really sick of this, James. We’ve never had issues like this before, so what’s changed?”
“Like I said before, you’ve changed.” I snap.
Before he can say a word, I continue. “You’ve become a controlling asshole, Erik. Everything we do, every move we make, has to be approved by you. It was never that way before.”
“That’s because we didn’t have Harper,” Erik replies. “Did you not see what she went through when we lost Ivan? I’d rather avoid that at any cost. If I’m being controlling it’s because I don’t want anyone going off on a suicide mission like you’re doing right now.”
He takes a moment before speaking again. “You lied straight to my face, James. That’s something that you’ve never done before.”
“I didn’t have much of a choice. You would never have let me leave.” I reply.
“Damn right I wouldn’t have.” Erik breathes out.
Silence fills the room as Erik turns his back towards me while brushing his hand through his hair.
For a moment, images of attacking Erik run through my mind.
Without warning my anger builds while my fangs cut into my bottom lip. The vampire within me was more than willing to test Erik and his position as leader of our clan. It was an odd feeling but a powerful one that I honestly didn’t want to go away.
I take a step forward just before Erik turns back around to face me.
In an instant, his eyes turn red. “You don’t want to do this, James.”
“Yes, I do.” I bite out.
“James, if you attack me then Harper will never forgive you,” Erik warns.
“I can deal with that after I’m the leader. At least then I’ll be able to have her whenever I choose, and the rest of you will have to wait for your turns.” I reply.
There was a part of me screaming to stop, but I couldn’t seem to.
My vampire side was very much in control, and there was no reining it in now. It was too late for that especially after what I had just said.
Without warning, Erik rushes forward. He slams into me while wrapping his hand around my throat. As we fall to the floor, he squeezes his hand just enough to cut off my air.
My head hits the unforgiving concrete floor with a crack.
The world around me spins as sparks flicker in my eyes.
All fight leaves my body instantly.
“I didn’t want to do this, James. You forced my hand.” Erik bites out as he glares down at me with unbridled anger.
“You cracked my skull.” I choke out.
“And now you’ve learned that I will never take a threat lightly. I don’t care how long you’ve been a part of my clan; I won’t hold back when you threaten what’s mine.” Erik growls before he loosens his grasp.
“There it is; the truth. You don’t want the rest of us to have Harper.” I whisper while closing my eyes.
Erik stands and then walks away without saying another word.
I remain on the floor while my head aches from the trauma it had endured.
“James…?” Drake breathes out as he walks into the room suddenly. “What happened?”
“I challenged Erik and lost, that’s what happened,” I answer honestly.

Throw Back Thursday!!

I'm planning on doing this throw back thing with my books. I have quite a bit of books under my belt and some of them get looked over since they're older so I want to shine a light on them.

The first book I want to shine a light on this week is dear to my heart. I absolutely love this story. I go back and read it often. It's a bit on the sad side but it has a wonderfully happy ending. It's about losing someone and learning how to survive the heartbreak and depression that follow. It's about family and finding love. When I first started writing this book screamed to be written and I honestly believe that there is a large part of me in this story. 

Anyway, if you haven't given a read I hope you'll take a moment to check it out.

If you're on Booksprout it's on there if you'd like to read it for free in exchange for a review. (There are only 7 copies to request left.) Just click on this link to check it out there. https://booksprout.co/arc/3710/losing-levi

Ava has everything that she could ever want; great supportive parents, an amazing boyfriend, and a job that’s actually not so bad. She lives in a small town where even though the world around them has been plunged into chaos it’s remained relatively untouched.
Why the chaos, well because vampires and werewolves, along with every other supernatural creature, have come out of hiding. Most just want to live normal lives with humans, but others don’t.
Those creatures that don’t want a peaceful existence are what Ava and the rest of the human population fear. They’ve caused more than their fair share of nightly mayhem.
Luckily, the small town where Ava lives hasn’t had any issues, but that’s only because they run those creatures out of town before they ever have a chance to become a problem.
Of course, that doesn’t entirely keep them from running into danger, but they can certainly try.
Even with precautions accidents happen and cars break down, which is something Ava learns real quickly when her car breaks down in the middle of the night on the side of a secluded road.
In an instant, Ava’s life is flipped upside down.
All it takes is one vampire bite and a mouthful of blood to seal Ava’s fate. She only has two options. Either she dies, or she transforms.
When things don’t exactly go as planned, Ava finds herself all alone. Her parents believe she’s a monster and her boyfriend Jake, well the last look that Jake gave her wasn’t one of love but of disgust.
Ava thankfully finds an unlikely friend, a werewolf. He takes her to a town that’s a safe haven for vampires and shapeshifters of all kinds.
That’s where she meets Loki, a vampire who instantly connects with her. He takes it upon himself to teach her how to live like a vampire and how to control her urges. Of course being a vampire comes with some new and unexpected lifestyle changes.
One thing that she has to get used to is the fact that vampires aren’t monogamous. They create harems to satisfy their needs. Even though she’s hesitant to jump into a new relationship she quickly finds herself in more than just one.
Ava finds real love but it also comes in a few different forms.
Her heart may get broken in the process of finding her way, but she’ll survive. She’ll survive thanks to those around her and the love that they share.

My eyes lock with his while he lifts the second bag to his lips. I watch him as his eyes turn red while his fangs descend and then pierce the plastic.
Seconds later my fangs cut into my bottom lip as I try and fail to stay in control of my overwhelming emotions.
The sight had my hormones on overdrive.
I needed him in the worst way.
Loki raises his brow while pulling the bag away from his lips. A small bit of blood trickles from the side of his mouth, and I completely lose all control.
I rush forward and press my lips against his.
At first, he stands frozen in place before he wraps his arms around me while taking the kiss deeper. He groans as I nip his bottom lip with my fangs just enough to draw blood.
Closing my eyes, I taste him. I allow his blood to flow over my tongue.
The moment comes to a halt when Loki pushes me back. “We can’t do this. You’re not ready, and I’m not about to take advantage of you.”
Instead of allowing him to push me away I step forward. “Shut up and kiss me, Loki.”
He snorts while shaking his head. “You’re not making this easy for me.”
“I need this,” I argue as I move even closer to him.
“Are you sure?” He questions while placing his hands on either side of my face.
“Yes.” I answer easily.
Before he can say another word, I push my lips against his again. This time he doesn’t hesitate to match my intensity.
Within a few minutes, Loki lifts me into his arms without breaking our kiss before he carries me over to the bed. He gently lays me down while hovering over my body.
“Are you absolutely sure that I’m who you want?” He pushes while searching my eyes.
“Yes, Loki, you are exactly what I want and need,” I reply breathlessly.
“If we do this I’m not going to let you go.” He warns. “I’m not going to just be a one night stand or a way for you to escape your emotions.”
“I know.” I breathe out.
“I’ll be yours if that’s what you want.” He insists.
I smile and place my hands on his face. “Just kiss me.”
He snorts and then becomes serious before leaning down to kiss me sweetly. “In all my years I have never met someone quite like you.”
