Celebrating Independance Day Blog Hop!

Welcome to my blog! I am helping my friends across the water celebrate Independance Day!


There are loads of great authors in this hop, so make sure you click HERE you never know you may find a new author who becomes one of your favourites!

In the sprit of independance I want to introduce to one of my heroines, Laney St Clar. She is the youngest of 4, with three older brothers.

You would think that she was a pampered and protected woman, exactly what everyone else thinks.....but you would be so very wrong........

Blurb:

Mechanic Laney St. Clair doesn’t want much in life. All she wants is to run her father’s garage as she sees fit, her brothers to stop treating her like she is still their baby sister, and for Heath Marsterson to realise that under all the grease and overalls she is a grown woman, ready, willing, and able to show him just how talented her hands can be.
Heath’s an alpha shifter who knows he needs a mate to help him rule. A strong woman who can stand with him and up to him when needed, a woman who can help keep his pack safe. What he doesn’t need is a fragile human whose family protects her as if she’s made of spun glass. No matter how persuasive little Laney-girl tries to be or how much he wants her, Heath knows she’ll never be strong enough to handle his true self no matter what she says, moans, screams…

Excerpt from Leashed by a Wolf:


Laney watched as he stretched his legs out in front of himself, seeming to get more comfortable. There wasn’t much space between them, less than five feet total.
“Let me list them for you.” Laney raised a hand and started ticking off on her fingers. “You just took me from what can only be described as a large group of human sniffer dogs.” She casually glanced around the small clearing he had taken her to. She couldn’t see any landmarks so she wasn’t sure how far they were, but from the unhinged look on his face she didn’t think they had gone far.
“That is something I’m counting on. Marsterson is a pretentious upstart not worthy of the Alpha title. He stole it from me and I aim to get it back.” Christophe ended his words with a sneer.
“Two. I heard he kicked your ass from here to the town border.” Laney shrugged. She gave herself a silent cheer as the smile faltered on his face.
“I assume you have more on your list?” he asked with a dismissive wave of his hand.
“You seem to have forgotten that I come from a family who really doesn’t like their baby sister messed with.” She pulled down another finger.
“You seem to think I should give a damn about some pointless humans who will be dead long before they realise you are missing.” Christophe sighed.
He threatened everyone she loved. She prayed Heath and his pack would get to her before Christophe could make good on his promise.
Laney narrowed her eyes as she looked at him. He may be a wolf shifter who could kill her with a swipe of his claws, but he had made one fatal mistake. She felt a dangerous calm settle over her.
“Do you want to know the biggest mistake you made?” Laney asked as she gave him the sweetest smile she could muster, the smile Duke called her “viper look.”
“Please share with the class.” Christophe smiled back at her. Laney sat forward, pulling her knees up so she could wrap her arms around them.
“You took me,” Laney growled before she launched herself at the shifter. Part of her mind was frozen in shock at the action, clearly screaming and asking her what the hell she thought she was doing? He was going to kill her! The other part of her mind—the part that had grown up with older brothers—calmly reminded her that she only had one chance at this and if she got it wrong she would be dead.

Until next time..Remember: tipping a glass of red wine over your Dom/me's shirt and then pouring a whole bottle of white wine over their head in an attempt to "get the stain out" is just asking to be punished.....don't say I didn't warn you.
