HIS TO PROTECT (Black Hills Wolves Book 63) by @ParisBrandon #Giveaway #Sweepstakes


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.

BOOK TOUR + GIVEAWAY: Unforseen Obsessions by Valerie J. Clarizio #Suspense #Romance @VClarizio



After Alex Polecheck's police officer husband, Sam, is stabbed in cold blood, she vows to see the murderer brought to justice. Peter, Sam’s best friend, and fellow police officer, seems to be the only member of the Police Department interested in catching the killer. 

Peter sets out on a perilous hunt for the killer, while trying to protect Alex, who appears to be next on the murderer’s list. 

The mystery begins to unravel when Peter finds a connection between the murder of Sam and two other law enforcement officers, who were all part of an internet crime taskforce. Peter and Alex find themselves alone in the battle for justice and truth when they discover members of the local police department cannot be trusted. Will Peter piece together the puzzle before Alex is silenced? While battling to protect Alex, will he be able to continue to conceal his love for her?

Alex leaned back and pressed her body to Peter’s. His chest was firm, and his flesh was hot. She tilted her head back and rested it on his shoulder. He skimmed his mouth down the side of her neck, and gently caressed her breasts with his hands.
Alex’s breathing intensified. It was exactly what she wanted. She turned to face Peter, placed her arms around his neck, and pressed her lips to his, parting them slightly to invite him in. Within seconds, his soft sweet kiss turned so passionate Alex nearly lost her mind. The taste of him seeped into her, stunning her, leaving her weak and breathless.
She removed her arms from around his neck and unbuttoned his shirt, displaying his broad chest and washboard abs. She kissed his chest and stomach as she exposed them. Under her roaming mouth and hands, his skin was hot and smooth, his muscles firm.
She looked up at him and his mouth swooped down and took hers, leading her into another mouthwatering kiss as invigorating as the first one. As they kissed, she undid the button and zipper to his slacks and gave them a little tug, dropping them to the floor.
Peter’s groping hands tugged her dress from her hips. He paused and stared at her body for a moment. His eyes darkened. He reached forward and slipped his fingers under the narrow side straps of her lacy, black panties and slid them off her before he led her over to the bed.
Alex pulled the covers back, climbed in, and lay on her back, ready and waiting for him. He yanked off his boxers, exposing his magnificent erection, and then slid in beside her. He leaned up on one elbow, gazing down at her with his dark, seductive brown eyes. From the intensity of his stare, she was sure he could see into her soul. She felt herself floating, drifting under his spell. He’d already awakened every pulse point in her body, and he’d yet to really touch her. But he’d already touched the most important part of her, her heart.
Peter stroked her stomach with his fingers. Long, soft, slow strokes. His penetrating gaze still locked on her eyes. He broke free from her stare and kissed her lightly on her neck. His hand moved to her breasts, caressing, kneading. With his thumb and forefinger, he teased her taut nipples. His kisses trailed down from her neck to her chest, and then to her breasts. His warm, moist tongue flicked over her nipples, giving each one their due attention as he skimmed his hand over her stomach, lowering it to her special place. His skilled fingers circled her swollen bead of arousal.
Shock, pleasure, and heat spread through her like wildfire. Her urgency grew. “Peter, I need you in me,” she whispered.
He stared into her eyes as he positioned his body on top of hers. She quivered as he gently slid himself into her and moved slowly as if savoring every moment. With each long, slow stroke, she felt her orgasm building, heightening. She clung to the edge, teetering, trying to hold on, waiting for him. But she was slipping, losing control. His thrusts grew quicker and deeper. Following his lead, she met his every thrust. She couldn’t hold on any longer. A tidal wave washed through her, her muscles pulsating inside her at the very moment Peter reached his climax. She floated down, breathing out his name.
Peter lay still for a moment, resting his head to the side of hers. “I love you Alex, I always have.”
Alex’s eyes swelled with tears. “I love you too, Peter,”
Alex lay still, overcome with emotion. His tenderness moved her. His love surrounded her. She nearly wept. She never thought in a million years that she would be lucky enough to find true love a second time.
