A new Black Hills Wolves story by Taryn Kincaid


WOLF’S SONG

A Black Hills Wolves story

By Taryn Kincaid


 

Ten years ago, visions of death and the babble of lupine voices in his head, drove lone wolf Brick Northridge to challenge his cruel and greedy pack alpha. Beaten by the alpha’s thugs and banished from the pack, Brick lives a life of seclusion in a mountain cabin in the Black Hills.

Born into a rival clan of feline shifters, skinwalker Summer McCoy, in her guise as a raven, watches Brick from afar, giving him back a reason to live through her sweet songs and special gifts.

But when her clan attempts to tear them apart and threatens the pack that banished Brick so many years before, will their love be strong enough to withstand the forces bent on their destruction?




 
 
 

She did not move, except to lower her raised arm from its frozen position. “Why do you call me that…? Annabel Lee?”

“I don’t have another name.”

“Summer,” she said. “I’m Summer.”

Yeah. Def. When the berries plumped sweetest. “Suits you.” His raging arousal made the words hoarse and jagged. Too harsh for this gentle female. “Turn,” he murmured. “I want to see your face.” A low growl escaped him before he could bite it back. “Your breasts.”

She turned then, slowly through the water, rounding to face him.

He sucked in his breath, his heart slamming against his chest. She was stunning and glorious. The beads of water rolling down her golden body sparkled in the sun. She glistened. All natural. No makeup. No artifice. Everything a female should be. And more. Much more.

Another pheromone cloud engulfed him. Her eyes went large and rounded, as if she guessed she’d zapped him with her hormonal lures, but couldn’t help emitting her sex juice any more than he could. Her nose twitched and she sighed, as if enveloped in a vat of melted chocolate, or whatever the fuck his own mating scent smelled like. He could only hope he gave off an aroma as rich and delicious as she did.

He struggled to control the raw savagery of his attraction and had to tear his eyes from her face. But her breasts…God, her breasts. Full and high, the exact size to fill his large hands, rose tips jutting toward him. He remembered how she’d touched herself, how much he’d wanted to replace her hands with his. Hell. He wanted to bury his face between those breasts, lapping at her, licking and sucking, take each one into his mouth, between his lips, grazing the pointed nipples with his teeth until he tore moans of delight from her.

His throat closed, his tongue swelling, filling his suddenly dry mouth, cutting off his ability to utter either animal sounds or inane words. After a beat or two of silence, she glanced away.

“What do you think?” Not shy exactly. Expectant. An undercurrent of doubt laced her question, as if she could not bear to disappoint him, and did not know what to make of his continued speechlessness.

“Perfect.” He rubbed his eyes. “Ah, Christ. You’re perfect.”

“No, I’m not.”

“You are to me.”

Author interview with Randi Everheart


Please welcome Author Randi Everheart
 
 
 

Thanks for having me on your blog!

 Tell my readers a little about yourself

I write steamy, contemporary romance but still have my day job as a software developer, where I create database-driven websites for federal government agencies, as a contractor.  I live in Maryland with my spouse, toddler, and cat.  I own and ride both a horse and motorcycle.  My degree was in classical guitar and I’ve released several CDs of my own rock music under my own name (Randi Everheart is a pseudonym).

 

***Tell us about your book.***

TRISTAN is about a sport bike racer, Tristan Kendall, who left home and the woman he loved to make a name for himself racing, but now he’s back after five years and wondering what became of Victoria.  When he finds her in an unexpected way, she has some surprises for him.

He’d broken up with her because her father died in a motorcycle accident and Tristan’s riding made her literally sick with worry.  He knew she couldn’t handle the stress, so he left her.  He’s since regretted it and wants her back.

But she’s moved on and doesn’t want to get attached to someone who just might leave again, so Tristan has his work cut out for him.  Can he convince her he’ll do anything to get her back, even it means quitting racing?

TRISTAN is volume one in my Kendall Family Series, which will be at least six books, one for each of the Kendall siblings.  The family owns a winery, stables, and bed-and-breakfast near the slopes of Sugarloaf Mountain in Maryland.


If you could only have one vice what would it be?

Hmm.  Maybe cockiness.  I say this because I don’t do well with self-promotion, being too modest for my own good, and maybe I’d be better at it if I was cocky about it.  I don’t like to talk about any aspirations with my writing, for example.  I don’t seek the limelight.  Most people I know don’t even know I write books, or if they do, they find out from someone else, not me.  Modesty (and not wanting to be the center of attention) is supposed to be a virtue but I find it more of a hindrance I guess.

What are you working on now?

More books in the Kendall Family Series!

 
What’s your favorite movie?

The Princess Bride.

 
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

New Zealand.  I’ve wanted to go there ever since watching Xena: Warrior Princess, in the 1990s, but it’s a long, expensive trip from Maryland and I never got around to it before having my son.  And now I can’t imagine that flight with a toddler!  Maybe when he’s older – and if I can make a living writing and can live anywhere without worrying about the job market. 

 
What genre do you write and why?

I write contemporary romance because I love exploring relationships and I can use what I know, such as my knowledge of motorcycles, music, programmers, wines, and horseback riding.

 

What was the first thing you wrote? Is it published?

A pretty bad fantasy book that will hopefully never see the light of day.  In my nightmares, I become a famous author and anger a hacker group like Anonymous and they find the old manuscript and release it to the public, to my unending humiliation.  I was 17-18 at the time, so that would be my excuse!  Being immature, my characters were, too.

 

Name 5 things that are on your desk right now?

I don’t actually have one!  I write on a laptop.

 
If you could add one famous Character from another book to your book who would it be?

Darth Vadar, though I guess that’s a movie (technically they were turned into books, so does that count?).  He’s stylish, cool, is crazy powerful and also just crazy, and he has a killer speaking voice.  He’d also be totally out of place in a contemporary romance and I think I could use him to great comedic effect.


What is your biggest distraction when it comes to writing?

My toddler, since I’m usually watching him while trying to write.  And now that he’s giving up his nap time, my productivity might drop!
