Sensuous Promotions: HIS TO PROTECT (Black Hills Wolves Book 63) by @Pa...: A resentful pack, a suspicious alpha and a looming threat… After ten long years, desperation has forced Luna Sinclair back to Los Lob...
A resentful pack, a suspicious alpha and a looming threat…
After ten long years, desperation has forced Luna Sinclair back to Los Lobos, but nothing in her experience has prepared her for the heat that Pack Protector Gunnar Redmond unleashes. Her wolf is clawing to break free and run straight for the hulking beast; but what wolf in his right mind would want to be tied to her family tree?
Not everyone is happy about welcoming the daughter of one of the old alpha’s henchmen home.
Old wounds and secrets are exposed and, to make matters worse, Drew Tao, the new alpha, has reason to suspect she might have revealed the pack’s most closely guarded secret when she escaped the crazed survivalist who had been keeping her prisoner.
None of that matters to Gunnar.
He’s known Luna was his mate since finding her naked and shivering on pack land, and he’ll do anything to keep her. With their wolves clawing to mate and danger closing in, anyone who wants to hurt her will have to go through him first.
A member of Romance Writers of America and published since 2009, Paris writes contemporary, paranormal, erotic and historical romance, throwing a little mystery and suspense in for good measure. She considers herself a hybrid author. Currently published with Decadent Publishing and self-publishing her own titles, she likes nothing better than a story that contains a little mystery and a lot of romance.
When not dreaming up stories featuring heroes who aren’t intimidated by strong heroines, she can be found haunting antique and thrift stores for unique finds, or searching for heirloom seeds for yet another new flower garden.
Excerpt PG 13:
“What are you afraid of?”
“I’m not afraid.” Doubt clouded her gaze. “I’m not afraid.” Her second attempt came out a whisper, as if repeating it again would make it true.
His wolf wanted to comfort her. His alpha, Drew Tao, wouldn’t appreciate him putting his own needs first. He’d been tasked to be a pack protector, and at the moment, he didn’t like it much. “You were running as if you were being chased.” He softened his voice. “I need to know who or what has you so scared.”
“Who are you?” Suspicion tinged her question.
“Gunnar Redmond, and it’s my job to know, so you might as well tell me.”
“I’ll tell the alpha. No sense in repeating it twice.”
“It is if the pack is in imminent danger,” he snapped.
“I had a pack of dogs chasing me. I didn’t remember the exact location of our border, but, apparently, they did. I wanted to make sure I was on Tao land before I stopped.”
She’s lying. Dogs giving chase barked like mad, and he hadn’t heard anything. Interrogation was a tricky thing. Sometimes he learned more by listening. “The dogs around here aren’t usually that stupid. What did you do to piss them off?”
“I’m female, you work it out.”
No wonder his wolf had been rippling under his skin. “C’mon, then, I’d best get you someplace safe before I need to fight off anything stupid enough to follow you.”
He had enough trouble ignoring the panting beast trying to claw its way out of him. In a few minutes, he’d need to ask for his shirt back so he could hide the evidence.
Her scent beckoned the wildness inside, and one glance at her bare feet as she picked her way over the rough path stirred another desire. He scooped her up and tried to ignore her trembling. Tried to ignore the bones stretching her flesh too thin. She held herself stiffly and as far away as his arms would allow as he carried her, clearly intimidated.
“I’m not going to hurt you.” He spoke in a gruff manner because if he tried to be kind, he’d end up doing something to appease the beast clawing at him and demanding more.
“Unless I’m a threat,” she whispered. Any returning wolf had to be vetted. This could go either way. He’d never known Drew to be vindictive, but her father had a nasty reputation and his actions had harmed more than one family.
He hadn’t known Ed Sinclair personally. He’d heard the were-bear, Gee, and some of the older wolves mention the bad old days and the men who’d followed Magnum into the kind of depravity no one liked to talk about.
Ed Sinclair had been a mean-spirited bully whose temper worsened with each drink. Man, woman, or child had been fair game as long as Magnum issued the orders and supplied the booze.
Try as he might, he couldn’t remember ever hearing anything about Sinclair’s family.
This time of day, Drew was probably having lunch at The Den, which meant Gunnar would have to parade Luna through Gee’s bar, half-naked and filthy. He could have taken her to his cabin, let her at least clean up and gotten something to cover her, though he doubted she would have trusted him to have her best interest at heart.
“I appreciate the lift, but I’d rather not be carried through town,” she growled, and he almost smiled. It had been a tiny growl.
If he’d been Ed Sinclair’s offspring, he’d be trying to retain a speck of pride, too. He lowered her to the ground and winced when one of her heels left a bloody print in the dirt. She defiantly lifted her chin, and he knew he’d have a fight on his hands if he suggested she return to his arms.
He needed to pick his battles with this one, or he’d surely lose a war she didn’t have any idea he was fighting.

At what point did you first consider yourself a writer?
I considered myself a writer even when I was jotting down poetry, bad songs, and some of my first attempts at fiction in my teens. It was the author tag that I never considered until I had something actually published
Do you have a specific writing style? In other words, are you a plotter or a pantser?
I’m a plotter now, but occasionally, I’ll still try to pants a book as long as it’s something I’m working on to the side of my other WIP. I like the freedom of pantsing, just letting the story flow. I don’t like the dead ends and restarts that I usually have with it though. That’s why I stick with plotting things out with the projects I consider important or urgent.
How did you come up with the titles to your book(s)?
Usually, the titles come while writing the book. Sometimes a specific phrase or concept will spark it. Occasionally, I come up with a title at the start during a the brainstorming before I begin drafting.
What books have most influenced your life most? (This can be professional or personal life influence)
Professionally, there have been two that have been more influential than others.
Stephen King’s On Writing and Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way.
What are you currently working on? Can you give us a sneak peek?
I’m working on two things right now. One is the second in the Stone Passions Series and the other is Penny’s Mates (working title), the third book related to the Georgia Whyr (not the actual series name. I haven’t settled on that yet.) Here’s a snippet of Stone Passions II.
Dante stared at the woman sitting at the table with the Agali Callista Vincente and Callista’s brother, William Vincente. He’d heard that introduce themselves to their woman, Moriah. The name suited her, exotic and beautiful.
Moriah looked young. By appearance, he thought she was about twenty three. Golden hair hung just past her shoulders. Although an apron covered her from chest to mid-thigh, the swell of her breasts and a curve of her hips provided ample evidence of her sweet figure. She was theirs.
“You know I should slam your head right into this wall. This is all because you had to go and say that the Fates loved you. After a remark like that, the tricky witches had to do something to you.” Cael turned to glare at him.
Dante shook his head. Cael had a point. He should have known better than to play around with fate. On the other hand, he never thought there was a chance in hell that their mate would be a Branal. Relationships between gargoyles and the Branal were very rare. With two female Branal known to be mates to other groups within their community, he had thought that he was safe making that claim.
“Yeah, I’d rather you not do that right now. She’s already looking at us as if we’re alien creatures. Who knows what she and think of us if you slam into my head into the wall.” Dante returned his attention to the woman at the table.
She glanced up at him. He stared into the brilliant emerald green of her eyes. He hadn’t expected to be so drawn to her. He’d known he would want her physically, but he hadn’t thought he’d want to know everything about her.
“I don’t think that it’s us necessarily. So many things are being thrown at her right now. I’m surprised she’s not screaming. And she doesn’t know the important part, yet.” Cael leaned back against the wall.
“I’m close to screaming. You know what this means.” Dante stared at the group of people over at the table.
“And that’s why I want to slam your head into something.” Cael elbowed him.
They had to leave her here. They had to court her. Her business was in neutral territory. They couldn’t pick her up and take her back to the community. Those fates had really screwed them over.
Do you see writing as a career? Do you write full time? Or in addition to another job?
I see writing as a career and yes, right now, it’s full time.
Do you have any advice to offer other writers?
Keep going. Whether you’re a plotter or a pantser, keep pushing through the restarts and dead ends. Push through to the end. I haven’t ever written a book where I didn’t have at least one part of it that gave me trouble. A crappy first draft can be fixed, but blank pages can’t be.
