Excerpt:

“Good to know now you’re not a man of your word, before I start to trust you in any way,” Lydo said, face tight.
Aiden feigned ignorance. “What’s that supposed to mean?”
“We had a deal.”
Aiden crossed his arms over his chest, still a little surprised at the feel of the taut, muscular pectorals rather than the soft breasts he’d lived with for so long. “You never believed me in the first place.”
Lydo bent close to Aiden’s face, and Aiden straightened his spine, refusing to be cowed. Tilting his head back, he looked at the big man face-to-face, heart rocketing into overdrive on multiple levels. Lydo was threatening, sexy, and unreadable, and if Aiden wasn’t careful, he was going to do something incredibly stupid like allow his crush to deepen into something much more dangerous.
“Are you able to get me out of here?” Lydo’s warm breath brushed Aiden’s face. “Or was it all a lie to get into my pants?”
At the appearance of Lydo’s reliable arrogance, Aiden’s spirits lifted. His lips turned up in amusement. “You really are ridiculous.”
“Answer me.”
Aiden sighed. “I could do it. The question is, is leaving what you really should do?” He put his hand on Lydo’s arm and touched the corded muscle of bulging bicep before snatching his fingers away again.
“There’s so much you could do here if you ruled as king. You saw those people, Lydo. The Konnics. They live a miserable existence on a barren wasteland because they have no other choice. If you were king, you could fix all that.”
Lydo’s eyes burned into Aiden’s for a long moment before the prince stepped away, putting some space between them. Inwardly, Aiden sagged with relief.
“You don’t know what you’re talking about,” Lydo grumbled.
Aiden considered that perhaps Lydo didn’t have it in him to be a good ruler. Remembering the sharp disappointment not an hour earlier when he’d realized it wasn’t Lydo giving him pleasure, followed by the twist of the knife when the Pusari female reported Lydo had been the one to send her, Aiden reminded himself only an acute sense of self-preservation had gotten him this far in life, and right then that sense was flashing a red light of warning.
Aiden’s desire for Lydo was blooming into something that threatened to throw him off course. The demanding, arrogant man who had come into the brothel had turned out to be more complicated than Aiden had at first thought. After managing to crawl beneath Aiden’s defenses, Lydo continually ran hot and cold. He seemed perfectly willing to give his body in payment for the favor he desired, yet he obviously had a problem with the concept of sleeping with a man.
Aiden knew he should leave Lydo and get the hell off Teresias, but he owed the guy. Still, Aiden had to think of himself. Drawing himself to his full height, Aiden hardened his heart. “If I get you off the planet, we’re even.”
Lydo’s dark brows dipped low. “What about—the other thing?”
“That’s off the table.”
Lydo’s mouth turned down. “Why?”
Aiden threw his hands up in exasperation. “Are you saying you want to have sex with me?”
“No!” Lydo looked around the room and lowered his voice. “Those were your terms.”
“And I’ve changed my mind,” Aiden said. “I owe you anyway for all you’ve done for me.    This is your last chance—do you want to stay and accept your birthright, or do you want to go?” He waited, heart thumping.
Lydo straightened his back. “I want to go.”
“All right, then.”

A New Beginning: Cascade City Pack

A_New_Beginning_400

When tragedy strikes his small band of werewolves who’d been roaming the countryside in search of a new home after River had been ousted as pack alpha of his old pack, River reluctantly concludes life in Cascade city might be safer.

However, tensions within the pack soon escalate when they’re forced to all live in the apartment rented by Jax, the human lover of David, the pack’s second in command. Knowing he needs money to buy better and bigger accommodation for his pack, River disappears for a few days and returns with a bag of gold chips he’s sniffed out from the Cascade River near his old pack grounds.

Coyote shifter Foster’s true mate has made his presence known, but when the coyote alpha finally shows himself, Foster is faced with a difficult decision. Stay with the werewolves and risk his mate’s unhappiness, or leave those he’s come to love as family?

Meanwhile, David continues to want to submit to Jax while being alpha to his beta mate, Brooks. Tension in the threesome grows as Jax’s reluctance to take the bite turns into flat-out refusal. Can their relationship survive this as well as Brooks pregnancy and David’s hyper-protectiveness of his werewolf mate?

When Josiah suggests the pack admit rogue werewolves, River’s desire to please his omega mate wars with his responsibilities to his pack as he questions past decisions and Josiah’s influence on them. Will history repeat itself, leading to the downfall of the newly-formed Cascade City Pack?

EXCERPT:
Note: may contain sexually explicit scenes of a homoerotic nature.

    • Josiah ran his hand through his curls. “Would you quit repeating everything I say? I never would have stopped working there, except I suddenly found myself mated to a werewolf.”
    • River narrowed his eyes. “I assume this has been going on since we got to the city. Why is this the first I’m hearing about it? Yes, things have been busy, but you’ve had plenty of chances to mention it.”
    • Josiah reminded himself he was in the wrong. “I’ve been meaning to tell you, but … I guess I thought you’d disapprove.”
    • “You knew I’d disapprove,” River corrected. “I specifically told you to stay away from humans. What wolves are you trying to help?”
    • Josiah pushed down the resentment he felt as Mark’s words came back to him about River being domineering. “Some who needed a place to stay.”
    • “Rogues.”
    • Josiah nodded.
    • “Knowing how I feel about them.”
    • Josiah couldn’t keep the snap out of his tone. “If I’m going to help at the Congress, I’m either going to be dealing with humans or werewolves, and those werewolves are going to be rogues.”
    • “And you’re telling me now because …”
    • This wasn’t going at all the way Josiah had planned. He rubbed his eyes, trying to get rid of the red tinge that kept trying to creep in. Maybe he should have waited until after his heat to bring this up, but no — putting it off longer would only make things worse. “I’m sorry for keeping this from you. It’s been eating away at me because I knew I needed to tell you. I wanted to. I just didn’t want to lay something else on your plate.” The frown lines between Rivers eyes relaxed a little, and Josiah continued. “I know you disliked taking the rogues into the pack, although both Sam and Foster turned out to be wonderful assets. As did Patrick, Kane, and Matthew.”
    • River took a step closer to the omega. “The decision to take rogues into our pack is part of the reason we’re no longer on the compound. The pack didn’t like it, no matter how much of an asset they were. And I’m disappointed to learn my mate has been sneaking around behind my back doing something he knows full well I wouldn’t like. Just the fact that you’ve been doing it landed it on my plate. Keeping it from me has only made it worse.”
    • Josiah made a frustrated sound. “It wasn’t like that, River. I wasn’t trying to be sneaky. You knew I’ve been with Mark a lot.”
    • “And I’m not so stupid I didn’t realize you’d be at the Congress some of that time. What I didn’t know was that you were actively working there in spite of the fact you knew I didn’t approve.”
    • Josiah stood his ground. “I have every right to be there if I want.” He glared at River, daring the alpha to say otherwise. “Mark told me they were building housing for rogue wolves. Housing that would keep the weres from wandering around trying to find food in the humans’ trash. That alone will make a huge impact.”
    • River growled. “You’ve been meeting with these rogues?”
    • “No, not them. Mark just showed me the housing. He introduced me to an omega shifter who’d been adopted as a baby by humans here in the city. His name is Jaime, and before your hackles go up, I repeat, he’s an omega. He told me he’d discovered a group of rogue omegas living in the sewer system, and he’s set up an old farm building for them as a shelter where they’re safe from the rogue alphas as well as the humans. I’ve visited them a few times and talked to them about their options. I was hoping you might write to Grey at Angel Hills and ask if they’d like any more omegas.”
    • River’s eyes darkened to a mossy green. “So, that’s why you’re finally telling me.”
    • “I was going to tell you anyway,” Josiah said on a huff.
    • “When?”
    • “As soon as I could convince myself it wouldn’t come between us. Anyway, it’s the omegas I’ve visited with Mark, and I don’t regret it.”
    • River looked away. “I’ve known for a few days you’ve been lying to me. I forgot my keys last Monday and came back to find you gone.”
    • Josiah put things together. “You wanted to see if I’d lie.”
    • Guilt flashed in River’s eyes. “And you didn’t.”
    • Josiah let out a breath. “Yes, I did. I let you think I was on my way to the Congress when we were really going to the omega refuge. I felt so guilty. I would have talked to you that night if the girls hadn’t gotten sick.” Josiah took River’s hand. “I’m sorry. I just want to help. I know you’ve been wrestling with things since we left the compound, but I still believe improving relations is important.”
    • River’s jaw tightened. “I don’t like you putting yourself out there when I’m not around to protect you, Josiah.”
    • “I can understand why you wouldn’t want me to be around rogue alphas or even betas, but omegas? You know we have an affinity. These shifters are just like the rest of us, only down on their luck. People need help sometimes. We did.”
    • River’s lips thinned. “Thanks for the reminder I was unable to take care of my pack and had to rely on Jax for a place to live.”
    • “River, that’s not –”
    • “Some rogues are desperate, and I don’t want my mate near them.”
    • “The omegas are desperate. For our help. You don’t know them, River. You haven’t met any of them.”
    • “And why is that? Because you didn’t bother to tell me about them.” The alpha took a step back. “Come to think of it, the subject of rogues came up at the meeting at the Congress. You conveniently didn’t mention you knew all about them.”
    • Josiah sighed. “Can you blame me when you’re acting exactly like I was afraid you would?”

 

Reviews Omega Arrival

5 stars Vvacious:

This world never ceases to surprise me. Initially I was a little hesitant regarding this book given that it wasn’t about River and Josiah and taking into account the ending of Third Mate, I was really anxious to know about River and Josiah’s future. But this book has just given me another relationship I want to know more about and that is the threesome of Grey, Ian and Gabriel.

This book mainly follows Justin and Gabriel on their journey as mates in the Angel Hills Pack.

Gabriel was one person who caught my eye even in the previous books because of his reticence to mating and that made him stand-out as a character but this book puts him in the spotlight and it was amazing.

I loved Gabriel and Ian, they were such amazing characters and in their own ways they kind of challenged the stereotypes of omega and beta and it was very enjoyable meeting these two diverse characters. Ian was actually such a surprise, I mean he is kind of like an alpha in his mannerisms, just looking at him with Grey was amazing. I mean Ian understands Grey so well that even Grey doesn’t realise how well Ian knows him. Also even though Grey is the alpha in the relationship between Grey, Ian and Gabriel, it is Ian who holds them together, I mean its amazing how he can comfort both his mates while still never letting Grey’s ego take a hit. It was actually amazing and I really want to know where this relationship between Grey, Ian and Gabriel goes especially now, with the subterfuge that Gabriel and Ian have managed to pull off. (view spoiler) Oh! I really want to know what happens…

Gabriel is similarly an omega who would give anything to be a beta and be rid of his heats. I instantly liked Gabriel given how he was a little uneasy in his new life which was further compounded by the fact that he had never liked how needy he got while in heat. But I appreciated Gabriel’s sensibility given how he works out his options and acts quickly on having figured out that he is kind of getting swiftly pushed into a corner by his own decisions.

I am guessing we are going to get more books on the Angel Hills Pack, because I would love to now more about Gabriel, Ian and Grey.

Then we have Justin and Milo, personally for me in this book Justin and Milo were kind of overshadowed by Gabriel, Ian and Grey except in certain key moments. I loved Justin’s concern for his pups and how he realises that he should marry someone who could love his pups even half as much as he does and I loved the scene between Tim and Milo in the end. It was really sweet. Also Justin and Milo had some explosive chemistry reminiscent of Josiah and River. Also I loved the story arc that was centered around Justin and Milo.

There are also other plot elements which are worth mentioning. I loved Gabriel’s concern for his fellow omegas and I liked the little hints we get into Vince’s situation, Canaan’s destructive behaviour and Xavier’s plight. Also this book offers information regarding the fate of the people who left the River Wolf Pack, I guess the author wanted to skip the drudgery of River(& Co.)’s travels and get the entire group in a somewhat contained situation before beginning their story while at the same time giving us a very good idea about the fate of the River Wolf Pack and the perils of River’s Travels. Also we got a amazing new character in the form of Christopher but I am really hoping Canaan’s story can get a peaceful ending, I mean he is somewhat of a disaster but I have always felt bad for him since he lost his son. Here’s hoping that story gets a happy ending.

Well as is evident this story resolves a few story lines but opens a whole can of new ones, I am really hoping this means there will be a lot more books which will hopefully be as amazing as their predecessors because I for one can’t wait to get a hold of the next one.

Omega Arrival

omega_arrival_400x600BestsellerIcon100X100

Emotions run high when five omegas are traded to the Angel Hills Pack, which has suffered a decline in population after an illness killed a fourth of its wolves.

After a previous mating Justin would rather forget, he’s happy to leave his old compound and start afresh. A part of him hopes the gorgeous second-in-command alpha, Milo, will choose him for a mate. As memories of his life with Stone haunt his dreams, Justin struggles to make the right decision for himself as well as his four pups.

Gabriel doesn’t want to mate at all, but as one of the traded omegas, he knows he doesn’t have a choice. He just hopes he’ll end up with a beta and not an alpha. How does he feel when he’s mated to both? Grey is the pack alpha of Angel Hills and he and his baron beta, Ian, want to start a family to continue the dynasty. Is that all they want Gabriel for, a breeding machine?

When an intruder is detected in the compound, everyone is on high alert, especially as the new arrival proves remarkably adept at remaining hidden. Will the newly-created mating bonds be strong enough, or will rancor and bitterness win out?
