New Release: Forbidden Moon

[Be-Were 2]

http://www.bookstrand.com/forbidden-moon

Adam Anderson must put aside his broken heart for his Pack. Taking on a dangerous mission deep within the mountains is a step in the right direction. When Adam is severely injured, he is rescued by a lone shifter with a past as troubled as his own. What evolves from there is a romance that awakens feelings he hasn’t had since the death of his mate.

After his pack’s betrayal, Cersin Everett swore never to trust again. He resigned himself to a solitary life far away from both pack and past. However, a hunting trip turned rescue mission brings him a man who can teach him what it means to hope again.

As Sin shows Adam his world, it becomes harder for them to deny their growing feelings. But theirs is a forbidden match, an unmated pairing. They will have to either surrender their newfound love or be torn apart by the world outside the sanctuary of Sin’s home.

The Biz:

How many books do you currently have published?  I currently have two books out for purchase. Mating Moon [Be-Were 1] and Forbidden Moon [Be-Were 2].

What is the next book you have releasing? The next book I have releasing is Moon Resonance [Be-Were 3] and will be available in July.

What book are you writing right now? I’m working on a few different manuscripts right now. Currently in the MM genre, I’m working on a new series called The Southlands and the fifth book in the Be-Were series.

What is your favorite type of Hero/Heroine to write about? Why? I don’t really have a favorite type. I like exploring different characters, especially ones that are the complete opposite of myself. It’s more of a challenge.

What is the hardest part of writing for you? Starting a new book/series. Brainstorming always takes me forever, especially when the characters are being difficult.

Advice for aspiring and new writers? Don’t let the industry intimidate you. From rejection letters to bad reviews, it can be very discouraging to a new writer, but don’t let it get you down. Even though it’s hard not to let it affect your writing, just remember that everyone has an opinion and sometimes they might express it in a not so nice way. Try not to take it personally. Even J.K Rowling has critics. As long as you like what you write, that’s all that matters. Don’t let other people’s opinions stifle your creativity.

Who did you dedicate your first book to? Someone very close to me who has stood by my side and helped me with my writing. They have been my best friend for almost eleven years now and to be honest, I wouldn’t even be writing now if it hadn’t been for them.

Do you have any rituals for Book Release Day? Other than check sales religiously and make half a dozen posts? No. I’ve pretty much resigned myself to the fact that it is impossible to write or do anything productive on release day!

What author are you dying to meet? OR What author have you met that you had a fan girl/guy moment? Um, that would probably have to be the lovely, Ms. Jana Downs. I’ve been a fan of her work for a really long time. I love the creativity in her stories and the fact that no two books are the same. She’s constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to creative story writing. My favorite series by her is Deadzone and I can’t wait for more.

Great series! I haven’t met her yet either, but maybe someday!

 

The Random:

How would your spouse or best friend describe you in three words? Eccentric. I get that one a lot! My best friend is always saying how I remind her of Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. I don’t know how I should feel about that.

Artistic. I love to draw, paint, and write. I especially love to write poetry and of course romance.

Caring. Although most people perceive me as very distant and not a social butterfly, my best friend knows just how big of a heart I truly have. I can’t stand to see someone hurt or upset. It just breaks my heart.

What was the last movie you went to see? Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters in 3D. It was awesome. I really want to see the new Great Gatsby movie though!

If you were an animal what kind of animal would you be and why? Hmm. This is a hard question. I would have to go with a phoenix though. The whole idea of being reborn from the ashes reminds of someone who can take all the crap life can throw at them and then rise above it to become something better and it has always inspired me. I even have a phoenix tattoo on my right shoulder, that’s how much I love them.

What is your favorite quote ever? It’s a tie between a few so no judgments here!

Marilyn Manson: “I’m a confession that is waiting to be heard.”

Shinedown: “Sometimes the curiosity can kill the soul but leave the pain.”

Peter Pan: “To die would be an awfully big adventure.”

Those are all three fantastic choices!

If you could be a superhero, what would you want your super powers to be? Telekinesis. Who wouldn’t want to be able to move stuff with their mind?

What song is on your iPod/Mp3/Stereo right now? Um… I have about a million. I’m a huge music fan. I love everything. Right now I’m going through a Breaking Benjamin kick with my favorite song being Had Enough.

Favorite place to curl up with a good book? My bath tub. I love reading and taking a nice relaxing bath with a glass of wine.

The Good Stuff:

 

What feature on the opposite sex attracts you the most? The eyes. I’m a sucker for pretty eyes.

Lovemaking, Wham Bam, Kinky Fuckery? Kinky. I love trying new things and new toys. Whether it is a new flogger or crop or just a new position, I’m totally game.

Tall Dark and Handsome or Playful Funny and Sexy? Both? Is that an option? Lol. I like my men to look tall, dark, and handsome, but to be playful, funny, and sexy in bed.

What actor/actress would you be willing to run away from your life for? A few months ago I would’ve definitely said it had to be Johnny Dep. Now it’s a tie between him and Jensen Ackles. Thank you, Supernatural for introducing me to that fine man!

If you had a warning label, what would it say? Warning: May cause adverse reactions when used incorrectly.

 

Thank you Lexi for sharing some intimate details, not lets get to the book! How about a couple of excerpts….

 

STORY EXCERPT

 Adam Christian Anderson stared out over his troops. They were a strong bunch of Enforcers, and he felt a sense of pride when he watched them train. It was what he lived for.

“Push him harder, Charlie. He can take more,” Adam called over the balcony. He liked observing them from up here. He could see all their imperfections and keep an eye on every pair as they battled until submission.

“Yes, sir,” Charlie called over his shoulder. He was one of the best, and he would make a good Head Enforcer one day should the Pack ever need to find Adam’s replacement. The clicking sound of the door behind him let him know that he was no longer alone, even before he turned to greet the intruder.

“They’re improving,” the familiar voice called from behind. Adam turned and met the Beta’s penetrating stare as he entered the overlook. Leon Marcus was a man few had crossed paths with and lived to speak about it. It was because of this reputation that many avoided him, but that had only made Adam like him more. Leon knew what it meant to be an outcast. They shared that.

“There’s always room for improvements,” Adam stated. The corners of his lips turned upward into a semblance of a smile. He watched as the larger man crossed the distance between them. There was a presence about him. Adam couldn’t help but notice Leon when he walked into a room. He was breathtakingly beautiful. Adam had often wondered what it would feel like to be his lover but never dreamed of pursuing the attraction he felt.

Leon’s long black hair fell in front of his deep-blue eyes as he leaned over the edge of the balcony and stared down at the Enforcers. “Alpha has summoned us.”

Adam’s heart pounded loudly inside his chest. He was sure the other man could sense the change in him. “Do you know what he wants?”

Leon tossed the stray strands over his shoulder and turned to look at him. Adam’s breath caught as their eyes met. “I’m not sure. Shall we go find out?” His voice was like velvet, and it took every ounce of concentration inside Adam to focus on what the other man was saying.

Adam nodded, too afraid his voice would give him away. Leon turned and headed toward the door.

“Charlie, take charge of the class until I get back,” Adam called down below to the Enforcer.

“Will do, Captain.”

Adam smiled at the nickname his men had given him. They noticed him, and that was all the respect Adam needed. He followed close behind Leon until they reached the Alpha’s chambers. Leon didn’t wait for an invitation. He pushed open the double doors and walked into the large room.

“What is it you need, my Alpha?” Leon asked as he fell to his knees upon entering the Alpha’s chambers. Adam did the same. He stared down at the marble floor, waiting for their Alpha to address them.

“I have a mission for you.” Jared stood from his seated position and grabbed the papers Daniel was holding out for him. Adam had always wondered about the two men. He’d never seen another Pack where the Alpha showed the Omega such favoritism, but he didn’t dare question his Alpha’s ways.

“There has been a rumor that one of the neighboring Packs is going to challenge us at the next full moon. If this is true, then we need to be prepared to defend our territories.”

“My lord, I don’t mean to question you, but isn’t this a job for the Protector?” Leon’s question was the same one Adam had wanted to ask, but he knew better than to speak against his Alpha. Adam was not one of the favored ones that were shown mercy for such disrespect.

Jared’s eyes narrowed on Leon. “It is, but since Terri’s death, many of the neighboring Packs have not yet been informed of his replacement. You know I have ordered an oath of silence.” The Alpha’s lips twitched in irritation. Adam knew Jared had wanted to keep Night’s position a secret a little while longer, or at least until he could be sure the other Hunters wouldn’t target their Pack in order to assassinate the ex-Hunter, Night. Their Alpha was waiting for the Stragorri to declare a new heir, and in the meantime, Night was building up their armies in preparation for the day his family found out he had joined the Pack. The ideal situation would be that in naming a new heir, Night would no longer be of any interest to them.

Jared cleared his throat. “Besides, I don’t want to send the wrong message by sending out the Protector first. They might view it as a challenge and attack prematurely.”

The corner of Leon’s lips curved upward in an almost cruel fashion. “And so what if they do. We can take them, my Alpha.” His eyes looked upward and met the Alpha’s hard stare. “We’ve been preparing for this for years. Our Pack may be small, but our trained warriors outnumber most other Packs’.”

Jared’s eyes didn’t leave Leon’s challenging gaze. The man had more balls than Adam did, that was for damn sure.

ADULT EXCERPT

“Give me your hand,” Sin said as he tapped Adam on the right arm. Adam did as he commanded.

“I’m going to tie you to the headboard now.” Sin wasn’t asking permission, merely letting Adam know what he was doing.

This was their first session together, and Sin didn’t know how Adam would react to being restrained. After he finished binding the Were by his hands, he moved to his ankles.

“Bend your knees,” Sin instructed as he helped the shaking Were lift each leg. Sin pulled out the spreader bar he’d retrieved earlier and spread Adam’s thighs apart until he could attached the leather clasps around each ankle.

When he was finished, Sin stood back to admire his work. Adam lay there with his legs separated by the metal bar, displaying his tight ass and hard cock for Sin’s viewing pleasure. He licked his lips at the treat laid out before him.

“Such a beautiful Slave,” Sin spoke as he picked up the lubrication he’d retrieved earlier. He poured a dab into his hand and walked over the bed. He rubbed the slick oil along the rim of Adam’s hole.

“Master,” Adam breathed as Sin touched him for the first time. Sin slid a finger inside the small crevasse, massaging every inch. Adam quickly acclimated to the intrusion, and Sin added a second finger.

Adam’s hips bucked against him as he thrashed from side to side. Sin knew that an overload of pleasurable sensation was racking his body. The pain from his beating had heightened his senses, making the gentlest of touches seem unbearable.

Adam’s cock had a steady stream of pre-cum dripping down the side of the hard shaft. The muscles of his ass tightened around Sin’s fingers as he pushed them in deeper. When Adam’s breathing came in sharp gasps, Sin removed his touch. He was ready.

Sin took the vibrating butt plug and lathered a good amount of lubrication onto the vessel. Turning it on full speed, he began inserting the vibrator into his Slave.

“Oh god!” Adam cried out as he pulled against the rope bindings. “I’m going to come.”

“No you’re not,” Sin ordered. “Not until I tell you to.”

Sin laid a hand on the Were’s chest. He could feel his pounding heart. “Take a deep breath,” he instructed, walking Adam through his emotions. When Adam did as he commanded, Sin shoved the rest of the vibrator until it was nestled deep inside Adam’s tight ass.

“Good pup,” Sin reassured his submissive. He leaned up and placed a rough kiss to his lips, invading Adam’s mouth with his tongue as he tasted the other Were. Adam’s scent filled his nostrils. The animal inside him growled aloud as he bit down on Adam’s bottom lip. He’d never wanted anyone as bad as he wanted Adam. Of all the other submissives Sin had ever had the pleasure of dominating, Adam was definitely the most responsive. He couldn’t believe this man had waited until now before experiencing the touch of a master.

Sin broke the kiss and reached in between Adam’s legs. He found the stiff member already erect and eager for him. Sin swirled his thumb around the mushroom-shaped head, gathering the pre-cum on his fingertip. He pressed the finger slathered in Adam’s stickiness to Adam’s lips.

“Suck it.” Sin watched as Adam lapped at the taste of his own desire, licking and sucking until every last drop was wiped clean. Sin withdrew his finger slowly from Adam’s mouth, trailing down the length of Adam’s body until he found the soft sac nestled beneath Adam’s cock. He moved his palm in a rhythmic motion.

“Sin—Master, I–I—” Adam’s head thrashed from side to side. Sin spread tender kisses on his abdomen until his mouth reached Adam’s nipple. He swirled his tongue around the erect protuberance. The wolf inside him yearned for a taste of the Were, but Sin knew it was taboo for an unmated pair to perform a blood exchange. He waivered over the idea only for a moment before his canines elongated.

What the hell. Sin mentally shrugged as he gave into his animalistic urges, reasoning that it wasn’t as though they were performing the blood rite ritual. That would require the exchange of the blood of both of them, not just one little taste. His teeth pierced Adam’s flesh, and the hot red liquid poured into Sin’s mouth. Adam cried out as Sin suckled on the wound.

Adam’s memories rushed into him all at once. It caught Sin off guard as most Weres held back during the feeding, protecting their innermost personal thoughts, but not Adam. Sin gasped as all the pain, sorrow, and love Adam had been holding inside suddenly flooded his senses. Memories of the mate he’d lost shot a pain through Sin’s own heart as he relived every moment in the blink of an eye. The memories continued until he reached the end, and all that was left was the pleasure and joy Adam was feeling now.
