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.

Sexy Paranormal Love ~ @MySexySaturday #Shifters #MySexySaturday #MySexyAuthors #Saturday7 #MSS130

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 #MSSAuthors #MSS106 @MySexySaturday

LynnSexySaturday_bannerHello everyone! Thank you for joining me for the 106th week of My Sexy Saturday. And it is my first time participating in this fun blog hop.

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.

Today’s theme is…

That Sexy Time of Day

 

Here’s seven paragraphs from the first of my Okanagan Valley Pride Series, Fighting For Honor

Here, Dominic & Honor are getting closer for the first time after so many years apart…

 

“What if I never returned?” he questioned softly. Pleasure sifted through to his soul knowing she’d never been intimate with his cousin. She’d pined for him all these years.
“I would still be waiting. I knew you’d come back one day even if it was difficult and I had fightingforhonor1mdoubts sometimes. I still knew you’d return. Not just for your mother, but for yourself. For the legacy your father left behind.”
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.

Mid Week Tease ~ “I hate this man you’ve become.” #MWTease

MWTease15Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing great!

Special thanks to Sandra Bunino for rallying authors together to share teases every week.

This week’s tease comes from Fighting For Honor, a shifter story, which is my first! I had so much fun writing it. Dominic left his pride when his father died, and has now returned to make things write — with the pride and the woman he left behind.

Honor stood swiftly. Her left paw dug in the grass as her blue eyes turned icy. I loved your father as much as you did, Dominic. How dare you be so cruel? You’re not the same man who left here. I hate this man you’ve become.
Turning, she leapt on to the ledge above their heads and gazed back at him. If he were a compassionate man he’d trot after her. But he had a job to do and had no time to console her. He believed she had no clue what Kenneth was up to, and he needed to keep her as
fightingforhonor1mfar away from him and Kenneth. She was his weakness, he knew it, but she wouldn’t deter him from his mission.
In a flurry of movement, Honor sped through the grassy knolls until she disappeared from sight. He heard her ragged breaths and muttered expletives as she rushed through the trees and hills, probably hating him.
Rising, he rushed through the woods, pushing away the guilt and anger pulsing through him. No one could understand what he was going through. He was on his own as far as having anyone to rely on. A great Alpha protected his people. Here was his chance to show everyone that he did deserve to follow in his father’s huge footsteps.
Coming to a halt at the edge of the winery, he lifted his head and spotted the clothes his contact had promised would be there. Shifting, his body realigned swiftly, his skin stretching and extracting him back into his human form.
He slid into the black sweats and t-shirt, pushed into a pair of running shoes, and pulled on the baseball cap. If anyone was keeping an eye out, he hoped that from a distance the clandestine clothing would keep them unaware of his presence.
Leaning against the tree, he waited patiently, brooding over Honor and the pain he’d left her in. She had loved his father as much as she’d loved her own, and he understood that. He was every kind of bastard for hurting her.

Mid Week Tease and Cover Reveal!! ~ “The Alpha and his mate were to always be purebred.” #MWTease

Dominic drew in deep breaths and tried to clear his mind. He’d been trained in one of the most lethal professions out there. Adding his panther to the mix, his anger was boiling heavily. But he couldn’t go into the hall guns blazing. Not when there was so much at stake. The element of surprise was on his side.
Unzipping his leather jacket, he stood and lifted his right leg over the bike, stomping his feet on the cement and getting the circulation moving again. Glancing around the quiet, deserted streets, he breathed in the sweet scent of the lands around him. Dust, wheat from the neighboring fields a mile away, the burned coffee that no doubt came from the Lap It Up Diner down the street, and the sugary richness from the Dairy Barn Ice Cream Parlor on the other side.
Cocking his head, two additional scents caught him unaware. One wrapped him with joy and protection, his heart filling with happiness with the knowledge that his mother was nearby. He had only communicated with her through e-mail and when he’d asked her to come out West to see him for a few days. Today was her special day. He hoped she’d be as pleased to see him back home as he was to be here.
The other scent, however, set his nerves on edge and his breathing ragged. The only other woman who filled his heart with both happiness and uneasiness. She was out of his league, had always been, even though there were few places they’d gone over the years where they weren’t together.
She was his childhood friend, confidante, and also the woman he’d wanted to someday spend forever with. They’d kept their relationship under wraps in the past, but Dominic planned to change that as soon as he could.
His father had told him that under no uncertain terms was he ever to take a bride who was not of similar Panther blood. The Alpha and his mate were to always be purebred.
As it stood, until his father’s dying day, Dominic had battled many of the new laws, since they went against his very nature. In fact, many in their solidified faction disputed the founding principles of the Okanogan Valley Pride.

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.comingsoon
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.
How she’d fallen into his cousin’s hands… well, he had himself to blame.
Stopping at the clearing, breathing hard, he trotted to the edge of the falls and stuck his snout in. Replenishing himself with the cold water, his ears twitched as he listened for anyone nearby.
Gulping down a last swallow, he strode to a clear spot in the cool grass, lay flat on his belly and let the quiet of the night draw him into its solitude. He couldn’t believe he hadn’t returned just for this. Too many years had flown by.
