The Wolf’s Mate 4…Cover Reveal & Teaser Treat!

I am incredibly excited to share news about the fourth book in The Wolf’s Mate series, Michael & Shyne!  I always knew I’d write a story for Michael, ever since the scene in Book 1, when he wore a French Maid outfit to serve breakfast to Cades, Jason, Linus and Bo.  But he needed just the right kind of woman to be his mate, and it was from many conversations with friends and fans that Shyne Jackson was created.

First…the cover.  Once more, Ramona of Covers By Ramona, worked her magic and came through with an incredibly sexy cover!  If you’re in need of a cover, she’s your girl!  Below is the drool-worthy cover and blurb for Michael’s story, debuting on Smashwords and Amazon on….

The Wolf’s Mate Book 4:  Michael & Shyne

Michael Gerrick was beginning to wonder if he would ever find his truemate.  Fate seemed to smile on him, when he fell hard for the delectable fitness instructor, Shyne.  The only problem:  three were-hyenas want her for their clan and are willing to do anything to get him out of the way.

Shyne Jackson was smitten with Michael from the moment they met.  Swept up by his devastating good looks and sense of humor, she’s unaware of the plotting of her were-hyena bosses behind the scenes as they attempt to keep her and Michael apart.  When they cross the line, will a showdown of fur and claws destroy everything she holds dear?

This book is for mature readers only and contains a wolf looking for his mate, a woman with a dark past, neck biting, plenty of teasing, wisecracks galore, and creative use of a pool table.

The fourth installment of The Wolf’s Mate series will debut at 1.99 on both Smashwords and Amazon, but watch for the blog post on October 12th for a coupon for $1 off the book on Smashwords, good for the entire weekend!

To whet your appetite for a little Michael-goodness, here’s one of my favorite scenes from the story:

Michael folded his arms across his chest, and his arms bulged with the motion.  She was unable to maintain eye contact with him, as her whole body heated and her heart began to beat faster.  He tipped her chin up with one finger.  “You want me to tell you the truth?”

“I want…” she managed to get out but was entirely unable to concentrate while he was touching her.

He seized her in his arms, the air whooshing out of her lungs, and she gasped a deep breath in surprise.  His mouth landed on hers, and his tongue demanded entrance.  She opened willingly, burying her fingers in his soft hair.  “Tell me you’re mine,” he growled against her mouth, his voice deeper than normal, the sound of pure pleasure.

“Yes, Michael,” she moaned as he lifted her, and she wrapped her legs around his waist as he carried her to the bed.  Her back met the sheets, and he followed her down, standing on the floor as he leaned over her, still holding her body tight to his.

His lush mouth nipped across her jaw and down her neck, and he sucked her flesh into his mouth and bit down on her pulse, hard enough to bruise and make her nerve endings go haywire.  She arched up against him, grinding the apex of her thighs against the zipper of his jeans.

She ripped the shirt up his body and nicked his back with her nails as she went.  He shuddered and released her flesh, licking across the bruise and nuzzling under her ear.

I couldn’t have done Michael’s story without the influence of Kameko Gay, my longtime friend and reader.  I’d also like to thank Jacq for her advice and support and Alex G. for running my Facebook page and being so incredible.  And to my fans and friends on Twitter & Facebook…thank you for everything.

And finally, I’d like to thank Lisa at Editor’s Cove, who willingly dove head-first into Michael’s story and took her virtual red pen to my words.  She provided a thorough edit of the story for me and helped me to bring this final, amazing work to you.  She’s great to work with!  If you’re in need of an editor, you can find her here or click the permanent link to the right on my main blog page.

Michael’s book will be out in twelve short days!  All the best, R
