Like all Chanku, Adam Wolf is a loving and sensual creature, and the only thing he values more than his connection to the pack is the deep and eternal bond he shares with his life mate. When she’s taken from him in a tragic accident, Adam is wracked by despair—a despair that quickly turns to rage when he realizes her death was caused by the incompetence of the selfish goddess Liana, who was meant to watch over them.

Liana reveled in the power and freedom that came with being a goddess, but her desires led to her abusing her newfound powers of sensuality and seduction and ignoring the needs of the pack. When her carelessness leads to a loss of life she should have prevented, the punishment is swift and severe—she’s demoted to life as a mortal, and sent to live among the very pack the dead woman came from.

With no choice but to adjust to her new role, Liana surrenders to an onslaught of exquisite sexual indulgence, a test to see if she can she fit in and learn to give as good as she gets. And Adam, torn between his grief for his lost mate and his Chanku duty to Liana, will be forced to reexamine his ideas of belonging and love, even as Liana will have to discover whether, when faced with the ultimate sacrifice, she will make the right choice . . .

If you’re looking for a hot page turner, in the genre of paranormal romance. Then look no further than Wolf Tales 10: Adam penned by Kate Douglas. If you never read one of Kate Douglas books, then you’re in for a big treat.
Wolf Tales 10: Adams was a scorching page turner. You won’t be complaining that this book didn’t have enough sex.
Adam Wolf had it all a job he loves doing and a lasting bond he shares with his life mate. Until one day he lost everything in a matter of seconds. But where to lay the blame!
It seems that for the Chanku they have a goddess to make sure that nothing bad befalls them before their time. However, Liana the goddess who was supposed to be looking out for Adam Wolf and his life mate was otherwise engaged and failed her charges. For that penalty, Liana was relegated to live her life out as a human.
To me, Liana didn’t have it so bad. I think she had more action as a human than if she would have stayed as a goddess.
I don’t how I really feel about this book. I can’t decide if her coming to terms as a human was the plot-line or Liana realizing that being a goddess was so overrated.

Biography

I’ve been married for over forty years to a terrific man who puts up with the idiosyncrasies of life with an author. We raised two really great kids who are now wonderful adults who’ve produced six grandchildren for us. ALL perfect, of course!

I’ve concluded my long-running Kensington Aphrodisia erotic paranormal romance series, Wolf Tales (which includes the Sexy Beast anthologies I-VIII) and the erotic Dream Catchers series, as well as The DemonSlayers series from Kensington Zebra. The latest Chanku series, which began under the Aphrodisia imprint, is called Spirit Wild. It picks up on the lives of the second generation of Chanku shapeshifters, beginning with Lily Cheval’s story in DARK WOLF.

Kensington chose not to continue with the stories, so I am publishing the stories independently with Beyond The Page Publishing, an assisted self-publishing company. My first book, Dark Spirit, released in early January 2014. The final Kensington title, Dark Moon, released January 28, and my latest indie offering, Dark Refuge, released May 12, 2014. I fully intend to write more of the stories–keep up with my progress via my website updates page at http://www.katedouglas.com/updates–projects.html

I’ve signed with St. Martin’s Press to write a sexy contemporary romance series with just a bit of suspense. The first of these stories–the novella TANGLED in the HOT ALPHAS anthology with Lora Leigh, released in May 2015. The first two novels are INTIMATE, scheduled for a December 1, 2015 release, and REDEMPTION, coming out December 29. The third book, AWAKENED, should be out in summer 2016.

I am also writing an erotic paranormal werewolf series of shorter category length books for SMP. That series, FERAL PASSIONS, is set around the Feral Passions Resort, built and managed by a group of male werewolves trying to find mates. It’s hard to choose a woman out there in the real world, so they sort of import them as guests of the resort. This one does have some humor, but there are also serious undertones dealing with self-esteem and exactly what makes a woman feel beautiful. The first story released in September 2015 in the CLAIMED BY THE MATE duet with AC Arthur. It will be out in print January 6, 2016, in an anthology called GROWL, with AC Arthur and Eve Langlais.

Sparks fly when a journalist and a Navy SEAL cross paths in Thailand in this third entry in the thrilling and sexy Alpha Crew series from New York Times bestselling author Laura Griffin.

Journalist Karly Bonham is on her first overseas mission, covering the new United States ambassador to Thailand, when she is taken hostage by terrorists, with only her wits and courage to keep her alive–until help arrives in the form of Navy SEAL Ethan Dunn.

As part of an elite SEAL team called Alpha Crew, Ethan has been on countless harrowing missions, but he knows this one is different the instant he meets Karly—the sexy young reporter who somehow managed to escape the terrorists’ clutches. Ethan is impressed by her, especially when he learns she has intel that could be the key to a successful rescue op. Ethan knows working with a civilian raises the stakes on an already dangerous mission. But with the clock ticking down, he enlists Karly’s help to thwart a vicious plot and bring a terrorist mastermind to justice.

Featuring Laura Griffin’s signature “heart pounding, nerve-jangling suspense, combined with sizzling sex” (Fresh Fiction), Cover of Night is a fast-paced, romantic thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) called shell shock or battle fatigue syndrome, is a serious condition that can develop after a person has experienced or witnessed a traumatic or terrifying event in which serious physical harm occurred or was threatened. Goldberg, J., MD. (2016, February 27). Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. Retrieved September 12, 2017, from http://www.webmd.com/mental-health/post-traumatic-stress-disorder#1

In Laura Griffin latest book in her Alpha Crew book #3, Karly Bonham a journalist who’s covering the new United States ambassador to Thailand has witnessed the after math of a terrorist attack. With only her wits and courage would keep her from being the next casualty.
When help arrives in the form of Navy SEAL Ethan Dunn, it has become Ethan duty to keep Karly safe.
Cover of Night hits on a topic that few of us has experienced. But our men in Blue, or military knows all too well. Even though this book talks about PTSD it isn’t the main theme of the book. Cover of Night is a military adventure story full of intrigue and romance.
I love the adventure, I just hated the way the story ended. When I finally got into the story I turned the page just to find that I was at the end.
All in all Cover of Night (Alpha Crew) was fun and well written. I started this series from the beginning and each book can be read as a stand-alone title.
I would recommend this title or series for any reader into military romantic suspense

Owen Hadley needs a wife. Preferably a wealthy one. Alas, there aren’t a great number of heiresses willing to marry a rogue of no particular fortune—luckily, if there is ever a gentleman capable of melting a lady’s chilly heart, it’s Owen.

Milly has had enough of the marriage mart. If matrimony means giving up her freedom for a foppish husband, then society can take their idea of marital bliss and toss it. But when the ton’s most notorious rogue mistakenly makes his way into her bedchambers, Milly finds herself unexpectedly and unwillingly at the altar . . .

Yet the more time she spends with her new husband, the more Milly starts to wonder if the marriage she never wanted may be the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Now it’s up to Owen to convince Milly that what started as a mistake is anything but—and that every night with him will be more wonderfully scandalous than the last.

A GENTLEMAN NEVER SURRENDERS

by

Lauren Smith


Milly climbed onto the bed and pulled the bedclothes up around her chest and sighed. The bed was so large, and rather lonely. Usually she didn’t let such a melancholy thought bother her, but tonight for some reason, it did. There was a dull ache in her chest and she rubbed the spot with her hand. Somewhere tonight, Mr. Hadley was likely climbing into bed, dreaming of all the young ladies’ hearts he would steal and break. A treacherous little flutter in her chest made Milly wince. She ought not to think of Hadley, certainly not while she was in bed…yet thinking of him, as frustrating and maddeningly irritating as he was, flushed her with a welcome heat in the chilly room.

The oil lamp beside her bed was the only light left in the room and it burned steadily. Often she read late into the night and forgot to turn it off, but tonight she was too tired to read. She reached over and gently twisted the brass knob to kill the little flame. Darkness absorbed the dying light and Milly flipped onto her back. The cold of the sheets almost stung her bare toes and legs when her nightdress rode up to her knees. A cold bed, an empty bed. It shouldn’t have upset her, but after Mr. Hadley’s talk of heat and summer, she was off balance and bothered.

The mere thought of him and the way his eyes had darkened and seemed to shimmer with inner flames brought on another rush of warmth. His eyes, like honeyed fire, and his lips, the way he’d smiled sardonically, almost mockingly, in a way she rather liked, irritated her, yet fascinated her. There was no reason to like a man’s mouth or to imagine what it might be like to have that mouth pressed to hers in a kiss that caused the heat he was so fond of discussing. She knew his kiss would be hot, because when she thought of it, her body blossomed with a swelling of heat in her belly. His mouth is wicked…sinful…and I hate that I wish to know how he tastes. It was a forbidden thought, but one she couldn’t deny. She rolled over onto her stomach, fluffed her pillow, and squeezed her eyes shut, attempting to will herself to sleep. It was going to be a long night.
