Release Date: January 30, 2015

TITLES INCLUDE:

Wolf Next Door by Heather Long

When Claire Webster was five years old Tyler Buckley, the wolf next door, told her he was her mate and then ordered her not to play with one of her friends. Butting heads throughout their childhood, her choice to leave Willow Bend tore them apart. Eight years later, she sends a request to the new Alpha—she wants to come home, and when he grants it, she’s both relieved and terrified. The first person she runs into is the last one who ever wants to see her again.

Princess of the Pack by Saranna DeWylde

Marchessa de la Luna’s duty is to the marriage arranged to the enigmatic and powerful, but aging Alpha Antony Rommulus. Her passion is for the rogue Cassius who can give her nothing except pleasure. Marchessa must choose if it will be duty or desire that will decide her fate and that of her pack.

Eternal by Rebecca Royce

Dougal Owens has served on the front line of The Dragon Wars for sixteen years. The last thing this Alpha werewolf expects is his mate to drop in with a plan to end the war. Together, they will battle to save the Wolves or die trying.

Hell’s Playground by Cara Carnes

The Quadrant Alpha once thought Mira’s death was the worst thing that could have happened. Learning she lives, and worse, survived torture and purgatory gives Adrik a chance to save Redemption and his mate.

Odd Wolf by Virginia Nelson

Dara is Alpha and used to taking control of the situation when it goes swirly. A rogue on her turf means a fight, and she’s ready to take him on. A woman with no plans to be tamed and a rogue wolf with no plans to stick around shouldn’t have more than a brief meeting to establish boundaries and be done. However, when Dara meets Lynwood, the call to mate might drown out logic altogether.

~Excerpt~

The wind blew hard against him, and his body acted as a natural resistance to the onslaught of a Massachusetts winter. Three months into the school year, November had hit the northeastern part of the United States with a vengeance. Any sane person would be inside where it was warm. But she had come outside, and he’d followed—as though a length of invisible rope connected him to her.

He loved to watch her.

The way she moved. The way she sometimes didn’t move.

He rubbed the stubble on his chin. How long had it been since he’d shaved? A day? A week? A month? The longer he spent with the humans, the more his body adapted to their form, which was exactly what he’d planned and why he’d risked everything to come to Northern Tide University. The more time he spent in this dimension, the less he had to try to resemble them.

Not understanding total assimilation was exactly what he craved, his father had warned him this would happen as if blending would deter him from his plan. Only he hadn’t counted on her. Alexandra Morgan. She stood staring up at a white sorority house at the very top of the Greek hill the university was so proud of. Queen House—the one to rule them all—where dreams of young girls were crushed on a regular basis. All the female students desired to be Lambda Chi Sigma. The smartest, prettiest, strongest-willed women the university produced came from the sorority housed there. But first, they had to be accepted into the hallowed halls.

Unbeknownst to the human population of the school, LCS took only one type of student—female werewolves. No matter how many human girls threw their best smiles, hopes, dreams, and money at LCS, they would never be offered the opportunity to pledge. Unless they shifted under the full moon, they were no one.

If he wasn’t mistaken, Alexandra met that particular requirement.

So, why was she so nervous?






A Letter from Rebecca Royce

Dear Readers,

Thank you so much for buying this book. I was so excited to be able to write a Roar story for Decadent Publishing. It was fun to get to spend time thinking like a college student again. I hope you like Kieran and Alex.

Best to all of you,
Rebecca Royce

The Black Hills Wolves #decadentpublishing #opencall #newseries #multiauthored


 
I’ve been keeping a secret.  And no, I’m not pregnant, this secret has been going on a lot longer than 9 months and it involves way too many other people.  So, I guess I should back up and say that I’m not the only one keeping a secret but I’ve brought a ton of other authors into my conspiracy. 

Let me tell you about it.

Two plus years ago, I was at what was then called the Naughty Sleepover, now you have probably heard about it as the Wild Wicked Weekend. A writers/readers conference in San Antonio. Actually, I had been very hesitant to go. I hadn’t had a very positive time at other conferences up until then. But, one of my publishers, Decadent Publishing, had heard I had moved to Austin, Texas and encouraged me to attend the conference as it is in San Antonio. I went, fully prepared to leave if it wasn’t worthwhile.
 

Well, the conference was fantastic and by the end up of it, I was brainstorming with author Heather Long about a shared world wolf pack.  We got really excited and in the way only authors can do had developed an interesting, hot, developing world that allows authors to create stories and characters that I don’t think could be found anywhere else.  Decadent agreed to publish the books (and help me keep them private).  We’ve all been really excited and through invitation only (in order to help the world get developed without too many hands stirring the pot) we have fourteen authors (and more coming!) having written books.

The Black Hills Wolves will release in January of 2015 with the first book in the series, my book, Wolf Returns, which tells the story of Drew Tao who has returned home to oust his father and reclaim his mate. 


The good news? The Black Hills is now open for submission and we hope you’ll join us in all the creative mayhem and amazing fun.
 

Decadent Publishing invites you to join the Black Hills Wolves pack. Dawn has come to Los Lobos and a nearly decimated wolf pack has found its feet again. Drew Tao has ousted his father, the Alpha, reclaimed his mate, and is determined to make things better than they ever were before.

 Length—18,000-30,000 words

 Heat Level—3-5

 What we’re looking for:

 I. These are multi-authored shared world stories. All authors are invited, even encouraged to use already created characters from other stories as long as the characters stay true to the world and the characterizations given to the character by the original author.

 II. All authors are required to use, at some point, Gee the Were-Bear bartender in their story.

 III. This is a shifter series, so at least one of the main characters should shift at least once in the story.

 IV. All stories should have a HEA or HFN ending.

 V. While the primary story focus is the wolf-shifter genre, a mixed genre story is welcome, including but not limited to: contemporary, suspense, paranormal, time travel, thriller, military, and new adult.

 

 VI. Please email submissions@decadentpublishing.com to receive the official copy of the series bible. Since the bible is always changing, please check back more than once, especially if it takes you a long time to write your story.

 VII. Questions? Email submissions@decadentpublishing.com

An accounting major, Lia has always been a dreamer with a very active imagination. The wheels in her head never stop. She ventured into the world of writing and publishing in 2008 and loves it more than she imagined.

Afton Locke:

Heather Long:

National bestselling author, Heather Long, likes long walks in the park, science fiction, superheroes, Marines, and men who aren’t douche bags. Her books are filled with heroes and heroines tangled in romance as hot as Texas summertime. From paranormal historical westerns to contemporary military romance, Heather might switch genres, but one thing is true in all of her stories—her characters drive the books. When she’s not wrangling her menagerie of animals, she devotes her time to family and friends she considers family. She believes if you like your heroes so real you could lick the grit off their chest, and your heroines so likable, you’re sure you’ve been friends with women just like them, you’ll enjoy her worlds as much as she does.

Celia Breslin:

Celia lives in California with her husband, daughter, and two feisty cats. She writes urban fantasy and paranormal romance, and has a particular fondness for vampires, werewolves, and the Fae. When not writing, you’ll find her exercising, reading a good book or indulging her addiction to Joss Whedon’s TV shows and movies.

Cara Carnes:

Born in small-town Texas, Cara Carnes was a princess, a pirate, fashion model, actress, rock star and Jon Bon Jovi’s wife all before the age of 13.
In reality, her fascination for enthralling worlds took seed somewhere amidst a somewhat dull day job and a wonderful life filled with family and friends. When she’s not cemented to her chair, Cara loves travelling, photography and reading.

Cam Cassidy:

Cam Cassidy grew up in a small Ohio farming community.  The lack of neighbors and companionship of mostly cows, dogs and horses left plenty of time for her passion of reading to flourish.  It wasn't long before her imagination ran away and she was creating her own stories.

As an adult, Cam is married and the mother of three who loved keeping her on her toes.  The ever present cup of coffee in her hand and notebook in her purse has become a trademark.  While she works full time in the medical field, her spare time is filled reading and writing.  Watching her daughter ride horses, the boys dirt bikes, four wheelers, running around from one sports field to the next, she never missed jotting down that all important plot twist.

Her love romantic suspense and paranormal creatures, werewolves in particular, are showcased in her recent works.  Stay on the look out vampires, some alpha military men and cowboys that are all screaming in her head to get their stories done.

Somewhere between running kids and catching up on laundry, her hard work paid off with her first publication of Wolf's Heart by Fated Desires Publishing. 

And these are just the few who sent me their bios. Busy Authors! Please visit Decadent Publishing (www.decadentpublishing.com) for more information.  Can't wait to start sharing these books with you in January.

Cover Reveal -A Shadow's Embrace by Cara Carnes


On the run from evil, her only hope is the Shadows.

Devyn James escaped hell once. Kidnapped from foster care at seven and raised in a psychic genetics testing facility, she survived by hiding her ability. A rare technopath, she eventually broke out of the facility with the help of the Shadow Elites—General Conver’s super soldiers, who rebelled and now fought to protect psychically enhanced humans. Determined to help the cause, she formed Indigo Order—a foundation focused on providing food, shelter, medicine, training and support for the displaced lower level psychics, especially the children tossed to the streets by Conver years ago.

For the past few months Devyn, or Indy as she’s known on the street, has covertly passed intel to the SEO. Even though the street doesn’t trust the Shadows, she does. They rescued her once and she knows they’re the only ones who will be able to save her from Conver and figure out what she uncovered.

Dagan is determined to save the female being chased by Conver and his squadron. He soon discovers her identity and vows he’ll do anything to keep her protected—even if it’s from herself. But the sultry female proves to be a handful when her team is in the crosshairs. When one of them is captured, he must prove she can trust him and all he offers, even though he may not believe someone as good as her should be with a Shadow.

Together they discover everything is possible when you trust A Shadow’s Embrace.  

 
A Few of My Favorite Quotes from A Shadow’s Embrace

“I’m not a dog to pat on the head, you condescending ass.”—Devyn, A Shadow’s Embrace

“We don’t have time for a conversational fuck right now. We’re three against nearly a hundred. Those aren’t good numbers. Please tell me it isn’t just you two.”—Devyn,  A Shadow’s Embrace

“Because every boat, airplane, bus, vehicle, horse cart, and bicycle is under scrutiny, and unless you can sprout wings and fly our asses out of here, we don’t have much of a choice.”—Dagan,  A Shadow’s Embrace

“Ease off the pissed just a little, babe, because I’m hanging on by a thread. I’m having a real hard time remembering you aren’t mine to protect. The more you argue, the hotter I get to prove exactly why I have the right to handle you.”—Dagan,  A Shadow’s Embrace

“You are everything strong and true. You are our sword, our freedom, our justice. What you are not—can never be—is a freak. Because if a Shadow Elite like you, the best of our kind, is a freak, then what the hell does that make the rest of us?”—Devyn,  A Shadow’s Embrace

“Thinking I need to stake me claim and give you a reason not to crush so easily, little bit or not,”—Dagan, A Shadow’s Embrace
