Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing great!

Special thanks to Angelica Dawson for rallying authors together to share teases every week.

~~~~~~~

This week’s tease comes from FIGHTING FOR HONOR. The first in the Okanogan Valley Pride series, Dominic has returned to claim his rightful place as Alpha…and for the woman he’s left behind.

Here, he’s seeing his mother for the first time in a while, his girl for the first time in years, and his cousin who is his biggest obstacle…


Striding to the front of the hall, he grabbed the door handle and yanked it open. His vision adjusted from sunlight to near darkness and he blinked rapidly.

Hearing noise from the right, he moved in that direction, eagerness filling him to see his mother.

He smiled at hearing his mom’s favorite band, the Bee Gees, coming from the speakers. It reminded him of long-ago days when they’d dance in the living room, laughing and jiving to the disco inferno; of the times when his father was smiling and playful. Those moments when his father had been carefree, that stress hadn’t lined his face from the duties he had to the pride.

Not that his father ever regretted his role, yet there were times Dominic remembered his father being concerned about things that weren’t discussed with children. Now, Dominic knew the burdens their esteemed leader had been under.

As the last notes of Staying Alive ended, he caught sight of his mother across the room. Her long, dark hair was braided as usual, but he was surprised to see the weathered lines on her face. He hadn’t seen her in two years, and while she turned fifty today, the days had pushed her beyond her young years and stress wrinkled her face.

Guilt filled him. He should have returned sooner, but it had taken weeks to set things up as he had—to set his plan in motion.

He strode further into the room. The whispers and shocked gasps filled his ears as those of his pride realized who he was. Heading toward his mother, a cloud of white from off to his right side distracted him. His heart pitched to his gut. He couldn’t be sidetracked by the one woman in the valley whose hair reminded him of soft pillows and clouds in the sky.

His mother’s stare cut toward him, then away, only to return as recognition dawned. Tears filled her eyes as she broke free from the people she’d been conversing with, and met him halfway across the room.

The scent of spring breezes, of vanilla and strawberries, wrapped around him as she cuddled into his chest, her arms locking tight around his waist.

“Dominic,” she whispered, squeezing him hard.

“Ma, I’ve missed you,” he spoke into her ear, not wanting anyone around them to hear. He was Alpha of his pride, and though every man here would lay down arms for their mothers, he wouldn’t show weakness to anyone.

Not now. Not ever.

She pulled from his arms and tilted her head back to look at him. “Are you home for good?” He heard the fear and hope in her words.

“Yes. For always.”

“Dominic?” A quiet voice beside him drew his gaze from his mother’s smile.

Swallowing hard, he shoved aside all thoughts of the past and what this woman had once meant to him. He had to play his part in order for his plan to work. And had to hope his mother and once best friend would forgive him when all was said and done.

“Honor.”

Her smile faltered at his cool tone. He should be disgusted with her, yet couldn’t fault her for moving on with her life. However, the man she’d chosen to hook up with was not the type of man he’d ever believed she would want.

“It’s good to have you home.”

He nodded, and shrugged. “Good to be home, I guess.” He raked his gaze over her figure. “You haven’t changed much. Still the skinny tomboy you always were.”

She narrowed her eyes at him, her mouth falling to a flat line.

“Dominic, no need to be rude,” his mother scolded.

“Has being away so long turned you into a jackass?” Honor’s voice rolled with venom and revulsion. “I thought we were friends.”

A muffled commotion behind him had him turning away—and aching to tell her the truth—as he focused on his cousin and a few of his entourage making his way toward them.

Kenneth had changed, and the pictures he’d seen of him did little to show the cold ruthlessness behind his eyes. Dominic no longer recognized his own flesh and blood.

My Sexy Saturday Page Header #3

 

Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me for the 130th week of My Sexy Saturday.

Here are the details: every Saturday, published and unpublished authors will be sharing 7 words, sentences, or paragraphs from a work-in-progress or an already published story.


 

This week’s theme — My Sexy Paranormal Love

Today’s 7 comes from, Fighting for Honor, the first in my Okanogan Valley Pride series.

Here, Dominic & Honor (a black panther & a Siberian tiger) are trying to get through the pain of losing one another for so many years.  Dominic returned to Okanogan Valley to claim his rightful spot as Alpha, and he also want’s his mate back as well…

He was unable to resist her sitting beside him. Her long red skirt folded up in her lap and her white cotton top with a low neckline offered him a tease he wanted access to. He latched onto both her biceps and hauled her onto his lap.

Cupping her cheeks, he drew her face down to his and claimed her mouth. Hard and

unrelenting, his tongue worked its way into her mouth, familiarizing itself once again.

She lifted her arms, encircling his neck and gave herself over to him. The intoxicating sweetness that was all hers filled his mouth, tangy and delicious. It calmed his heart and wrapped around his soul.

Only Honor had the power to take over his body and make him forget his own name.

Lifting her head, she gazed down at him as she pushed him backward on the grass. “Tell me you’ve come back here for me too, Dominic. Tell me you love me if you do.”

“Always. All I ever wanted was to get back to you…. There was too much pain….” He sighed, unsure of how to explain himself. “Losing father nearly broke me. I’m ashamed I turned away from the pride as long as I did. That need inside me—my panther needed the solitude. I became angry and hungry for power. I found it in some dangerous ways, but I guess I did the best I could. I never stopped wanting you though. I’ve wanted to claim you as mine for years. It drove me to come back to you a better man. I’ll never leave you again. You’re mine, Honor. Forever.”

A purr-like rumble erupted from her throat, the sound reaching his dick and it jerked behind his jeans. Damn if that wasn’t the sexiest sound.

#MySexySaturday from Fighting for Honor #Shifter #MSSAuthors #MSS125 @MySexySaturday

My Sexy Saturday Page Header #3

 

Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me for the 125th week of My Sexy Saturday.

Here are the details: every Saturday, published and unpublished authors will be sharing 7 words, sentences, or paragraphs from a work-in-progress or an already published story.


 

This week’s theme  — My Sexy Shifter

 Since I currently have only one shifter in my list of titles, I’m sharing from FIGHTING FOR HONOR. I loved writing this story and can’t wait to return to Okanogan Valley soon!

(c) Kacey Hammell, 2016
Dominic closed the front door of his old cabin quietly behind him. The urge to run crowded him, tormenting him to let loose and give into the call of the wildness of being home. He needed some time to himself before he met up with his contact in an hour.

He was confident in the fact that he could bring down his cousin and those on his side and repair the damage to the pride before anything further was lost.

fightingforhonor1m

Shedding his sweats and t-shirt, he slipped out of his sandals and let the change overtake him. His muscles stretched and elongated, pulling his flesh taut and realigning his physique. On all fours, he lifted his nose to the air and darted his eyes across his surroundings. He’d always been grateful for his Panther ancestry. His vision alone was something he coveted. With silver eyes, he had the ability to see through the darkness in the dead of night, as if he held a lantern. His father told him many times that having that unique color was something only the most powerful of panthers possessed.

Taking off at a run, he re-familiarized himself with his favorite trail leading to the waterfall where he’d spent much of his childhood. The serenity and secluded area had always called to him, drawing him in and giving him the best place possible to contemplate his future.

If there was any one place in the valley he’d missed the most, it was the falls, and the memories there.

His awkward first kiss.
With Honor.
Clumsily losing his virginity.
With Honor.
Crying over the death of his father.
With Honor holding him.

Darting faster and harder, his paws barely touching the ground, he pushed away the memories. He’d missed so much over the last five years. And she was at the top of his list.

Evernight, Amazon, and ARe Gift Certificates

I’m so honored to be an Evernight Author! I have loved being a part of their family since 2012 when DARE was first published. My writing has evolved over the years, thanks to the support of everyone involved at EP. The authors are amazing, the whole staff is fantastic and I’m so proud to be a part of the family!

Happy birthday Evernight Publishing! Here’s to many more years of working together!!

My first release with Evernight as I said was DARE.

74940-darecover373Legal secretary, Olivia Warner enjoys being single and, aside from her closest gal pals, usually keeps to herself. But the night of her thirty-fourth birthday, she and her friends spend a fun-filled evening at a local bar where her friends dare her to approach a man, and spend the night with him. Olivia’s not one to turn down a dare, especially from her old college pals. She only hopes the man in question is in for some good conversation, because that is all she’ll give him.

Darren “Dare” Shalvis has given up on women. He’s tired of being chased for his money, good looks, and prowess in bed. He prefers to meet a woman who, for once, wants nothing more from him than mere conversation. If only the woman asking him to spend the night with her wasn’t his favorite legal secretary.

Accepting a dare has never been so tempting…

More about DARE

I’m super proud of DARE and the reader’s responses to it has been outstanding. Thank you to everyone who loves DARE as much as I do.

And thank you to everyone who has made my latest release, a paranormal shifter no less (I told you I evolved over the years and have now written a cat shifter!!!), FIGHTING FOR HONOR.
