McKay's Werewolf Ways (Gay Werewolf Romance) -- and a Big Box Set of Highland Shifters on the Way

First, I'd like to express my appreciation for the well wishes from so many of you. In June I was walking to the grocery store when a young driver pulled out a parking lot without looking and hit me. I'm told my body shattered his windshield when I was flipped over his hood. I spent a week in our regional trauma hospital with a fractured spine and a torn meniscus (kneecap). I was in extreme denial of how severely I was injured. I was relieved that for the second month anniversary of my accident, my new orthopedic surgeon allowed me to toss my hated back brace. He told me I should have no long term effects from the spinal fracture and that there's now no evidence I had a torn meniscus. I will say I'm aware that it was torn with every step. I need to go in for a new set of spine
x-rays in mid-September for (hopefully) my final exam on my third month anniversary and then I should get an "all clear."

I've tried to keep writing but the experience has been a very painful one and I lost a lot of time I had sorted out. I've regretted not being able to give my website the attention it needs. I'm hoping now that I'm definitely feeling better things can start getting back to normal.

Here's one of my latest works--McKay's Werewolf Ways (Gay Werewolf Romance). This is intended as a "prequel" to introduce my character McKay to the Supernatural Community. His story continues in my shared contribution to an upcoming Scottish Shifter Romance.

McKay’s world and heart shrank when his grandfather died. While settling his estate a chance meeting with Mahihkan, a hot and sexy Metis artist, is about to teach the red-headed professional model that the world is much larger—and more magical-- than he ever imagined. It’s also more dangerous as he discovers his new companion is really a Loup-Garou--what the Metis call a werewolf. In the U.S. to install a new art piece, Mahihkan is considered a “lone wolf” without a pack to depend on for protection. The arrangements he made with the local packs have just fallen apart when a werewolf has been left for dead in the Turtle Island Maze Mahihkan created. Now he fears not only for his own life but McKay’s as well. What happens when a human discovers the Supernatural is real? The policy is elimination of humans who know The Secret. 


(This gay werewolf romance introduces McKay in his first encounter with paranormal romance. His story will continue with Roots and Fangs: Scottish Shifter Romance, as he retraces the route his grandfather took from Scotland to arrive in America. This story is intended for an adult audience. It expresses a graphic same-sex loving relationship. All characters are over eighteen years old) 

Excerpt 

Mahihkan sat silent for a moment and poured himself a second shot. In for a penny, in for a pound. You go from not telling humans anything to then just handing them the store when they finally find out The Secret. God, no wonder The Enforcers felt it was easiest to just kill everybody. “The average Garou needs the full moon to change shape. But there are members of the community who are, well, I guess you could say they’re more gifted than the others. These are the natural leaders. We call them Alphas. Technically an Alpha is someone who can change at any time—they don’t need the moon. I’m what’s called a potential Alpha. That means I have all the strength and abilities of an Alpha, but I’m not in a formal leadership position. I don’t need the moon to change. Obviously my guest can do it on his own as well.” 

Mahihkan looked up from his glass. As he stared into McKay’s eyes, his own eyes shifted into the strange golden color the other man—the other Garou-- had shown. “I thought I saw a flash of yellow in your eyes the first time I met you, but I had managed to convince myself I was just seeing things.”

“Unless we work hard to control it, our eyes change color if we’re aroused, excited, or scared. We slip up more than we should, but our greatest ally is an enduring belief by humans we don’t exist in the first place. Even when we do show our true eye color, most people will manage to instantly convince themselves they didn’t see what they thought they saw.” 

“What do we do now?” McKay was feeling the edge of the alcohol. He almost laughed when he thought about upgrading his Facebook status: Met this hot Garou who was helping a friend recover from attempted murder. Note to self: buy a bottle of Tito’s Vodka. It’s just the thing to have when your world goes bat-shit crazy. Who would even believe him? His only regular involvement with anything unusual was the modeling industry where all magic was done with Photoshop.

Here's a cover reveal of the further adventures of McKay: 


Roots & Fangs (Scottish Shifter Romance)


McKay enters into the dangerous world of the Supernatural once more as he searches for the steps his grandfather took from Scotland to the States. Little did he know Logan McKay had really escaped to the New World to avoid the wrath of the Daoine Sith, the Fair Folk of the Highlands. As generations repeat themselves, McKay takes Niall as his Sith lover, which triggers the deadly jealousy of the Pooka shape-shifter the Sith abandons. Legend says a Pooka will kill at a whim. It’s up to McKay not only to tame the wild magic of the Pooka, but to return what his grandfather took from the Sith forty years ago. Unfortunately he needs the power of the Pooka to do so. Can Love conquer all when only one of you is human? (A supernatural same-sex triangle calls to life Celtic legends and the Drawing Down the Moon Rite that will change the lives of those involved forever. This steamy paranormal romance is intended for adults only.)

When McKay takes a Sith lover it triggers the deadly jealousy of the Pooka shape-shifter the Sith abandons. Can love conquer all when only one of you is human?

New Paranormal Mega-Bundle: Shifters, Beasts, and Monsters!

Native American Teachings have always emphasized how everything is connected. For many of our Southwestern Native Nations, this is symbolized by the Web of Life—the symbol of Spider Woman. Spider Woman is the “Creatrix” of the World. Isn’t that a lovely word? It means the Female Creator. Native peoples know from long observation it doesn’t matter where you touch on a spider’s web—it sends a ripple throughout the entire web. Just so, whatever we do impacts everything and everyone around us. It also shows us that everything has a place on the Web of Life, and what may be seen as “evil” (or “good”) from one perspective, may be understood in a different way when you can see the behavior in a larger context.

Just so, I’m excited to announce a new Mega-Bundle that’s just gone live: Shifters, Beasts, and Monsters (The Alpha Paranormal Collection). My own contribution (Ravaged by the Rainbow) is based on traditional Navajo culture and the idea of how one’s belief system may cause misunderstandings when encountering a new life form from very far away. 

(This just in--the Collection has just received a "Best Seller" Award from one of the major bookselling vendors) 

You can order the stories from these sources: Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00L1MSLPM

Dark Passions--And the Origin of Strawberries

Native Americans have always known the importance of Personal Interactions and Social Media--
There are some great Native American legends that deal with love and romance. Many people don't know how many foods we enjoy in the 21st century were contributed by Native American cultures. Corn is a given, but are you aware strawberries are also a Native gift? 

There's a legend that says a young Cherokee man was attracted to a beautiful young woman of his Tribal Nation.  But she behaved very politely and ignored him. He followed her but she would not even slow down--let alone pay attention to him. He prayed to the Creator to help him.  The Creator took pity on him and created strawberries.  The young woman slowed down to pick the berries, which allowed her suitor to catch up with her and begin to court her appropriately.

My story, "How Bad Can A Cowboy Be" features two curvy cousins and their relationships with various cowboys. One is Bree Cunningham who also appears in her own book, Romancing the Wolf. I went back to explore her earlier life while she was still in college and yet to meet the werewolf of her dreams. At that point she was running the computer lab on her grandmother's reservation. You'll be able to read all about Bree and her cousin Kathy in this spicy mega-collection about all sorts of other "bad boys"-- Dark Passions
You can find Dark Passions on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/Dark-Passions-Romance-Boxed-Set-ebook/dp/B00K5I6RWC/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1402006267&sr=1-1&keywords=dark+passions, on B&N here:http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/dark-passions-cheri-verset/1119471915?ean=2940149437214

For a limited time only--$.99!
I so pleased to see this morning to see the current Amazon Top 100 Best Selling lists for Eye of Wolf:

Eye of Wolf (Alpha Gay Werewolf Romance)

Dallas had left his Werewolf Pack and former lover far behind in Phoenix to take a much needed break with his Seattle friend, Billy the Power Bottom. He meets another potential alpha--Jax. There is an immediate attraction on several levels that will lead Dallas back into the complexity of the Pack Politics he was trying to escape. Suddenly Dallas finds himself a witness as Jax is Challenged by his brother for the position of Pack Leader. Jax would prefer to walk away--will his homophobic Pack  accept the first openly gay alpha? Especially when Dallas is standing beside him? (An adults only gay erotic romance that includes Kindle melting graphically explicit sexual encounters between alpha werewolves. This over 14,000 word story includes the Tale of Dallas and Jax that first appeared in Supernatural Sex and the City, along with all new material.)

Excerpt:

"I'm Jeffery St. Claire," a deep voice said from behind me. If I hadn't been so focused on Jax, he couldn't have sneaked up on me. This was a potentially dangerous and very unknown place. I couldn't afford to get careless. He stepped in front of me and offered me his hand. When I shook it, I felt the unmistakable tingle of the evne, the supernatural energy that makes us who and what we are. I wondered if he were doing it on purpose, or if he were just so powerful it just constantly dripped out of him. He gave me that look I knew so well--"When can we do it?" Nice to know I still had it. 

"How long have you known Jax?" I asked. I wasn't going to run off and bang him at a funeral. That would be even more tacky than the best man fucking the bride right before the wedding. As Bette Midler once said, "I have my standards. They may be low, but I have them." 

I'll admit I was tempted. I knew from direct experience with my werebear, someone who was able to focus his evne could kick up sex into the stratosphere. But to my own surprise, I really wondered about Jax and what it would be like to actually be his formal mate. God, who do I think I am? Sadie, Sadie, married lady? Like I was ever known as Mr. Monogamous. I mean, I had once been called an incubus slamming Viagra.

"Since we were kids. Our fathers were allies, so you know how those things go. Your family is required to alternate an occasional weekend at your ally's home. If you have more than one child, then the kid is sent over as a potential hostage and then he gets returned to show how much of an ally you really are." He looked over at Jax who was still busy with his funeral duties. "But our fathers were close on all levels--just like Jax and I were." He looked back at me just to make sure I heard "with benefits" was the unspoken tag line. Sure, like father like sons. Jacob had probably been envious of Jeffery as well. He got to watch Jax go spend fun weekends with Jeffery. I bet I know who his first boyfriend was. How convenient.

Wait--what the hell? Instead of thinking about what it would be like to have a fun weekend of my own with Jefferey I was actually feeling a tickle of jealousy he was Jax's childhood cherry popper? What was wrong with me? Maybe I was suffering from PTSD after the ripping the head off thing.

It's been such a wild and amazing ride--I have contributions in two separate box sets that I've posted about on my blog. Both have done well, but one has been really exceptional. Fated Mates (Alpha Shifters) has gone as high as #22 in the entire Kindlestore. It placed at #12 on the New York Times Best Sellers List and at #55 on the USA Today Best Sellers List. While this was going on, my Amazon Author rank hit #83 out of the "Overall" top 100 authors so I was able to share that list with such authors as Stephen King, Danielle Steel and Dr. Seuss.

But check out its "little sister"--Love Charms!
