Excerpt from Vordol’s Vow by Dena Garson:

“Vordol! H-How are you?” Pitannah pushed a tuft of hair behind her ear. Her heart hammered against her chest so hard she thought it would burst out at any second. Seeing the object of your fantasies come to life after almost six years tended to do that to a girl. Especially when that fantasy had grown bigger, darker, and if possible, sexier.

“Well. You look good. A lot more grown up than the last time I saw you.” He glanced at her name tag. “You work for Quantam now?”

“Yes.” She clung to her serving tray like a lifeline and tried to not stare at the way his jacket bulged from the muscle mass he’d gained since she’d last seen him. “I’ve been with them for almost a year. What brings you aboard?” she asked in a rush.

“Work.” His eyes darted about the room before landing on Ms. Ruby who was watching their exchange with interest now that the Maître de had seated her.

“You’re here for the talent search then?” Pitannah guessed.

“She is, so I am too.” He gestured to the table. “Are you assigned to Ruby’s table?”

“Oh, no. I was just helping one of the other girls finish setting up for dinner. I usually rotate through a couple of the other sections.”

“That’s too bad.”

The rumbling purr in his voice send goose bumps down her spine.

“Vordol, bring your little friend over and introduce her,” Ms. Ruby suggested.

Vordol’s lips twitched even as he waved her ahead of him. “Ruby, this is Pitannah Lorento. She’s Harec’s oldest daughter.” To Pitannah he added, “Pitannah, this is the incomparable, Ms. Ruby Rose.”

Ruby extended her hand to Pitannah. “It’s lovely to meet you my dear.”

Pitannah shook Ruby’s hand and tried to not gawk. “It’s wonderful to meet you, too. I’ve followed your career for years.”

“Oh, thank you, dear.” Ruby shot a questioning look at Vordol. “Harec is the Security Engineer who trained you, isn’t he?”

Vordol nodded then faced Pitannah. “How is Harec? I haven’t heard from him in quite a while.”

She grimaced. “Papa died about six months ago.”

Vordol’s expression fell. “Damn. I’m sorry. I didn’t know.”

“Oh, my dear. I’m so sorry we brought up a sad topic for you.” Ms. Ruby patted Pitannah’s hand. “Your father was a huge influence on Vordol and I, for one, am very grateful for it.”

“Thank you.” Pitannah bit her lip. “I don’t mean to be forward, but are you two related somehow? You seem quite close.”

Ms. Ruby smiled. “I like to think so. I’ve known this handsome young man since he and those other hoodlums he calls brothers were chasing each other with sticks and mud.”

Vordol crossed his arms over his chest. “Who are you kidding? We still chase each other with sticks and mud.”

“Yes, dear, but now you call it training,” Ruby teased.

“Ruby and my foster mother, Sela, were close friends.” Vordol chatted with them, seemingly at ease, but his stance and his frequent glances about the room told her he was on alert. Her father had been the same way.

“Sela made many of my costumes, back in the day. The most talented seamstress in the cosmos,” Ruby declared.

“But, Ruby attracts trouble like sugar attracts pests, so we keep a close eye on her.”

Ruby patted his arm. “You’re being modest. There’s no one I trust more to protect me at events like this.” She winked at Pitannah. “Besides, who doesn’t want a handsome devil escorting you to all the big parties?”

“Well, I don’t blame you there,” Pitannah grinned.

“Miss? Could we get a refill?” One of the nearby customers waved his glass in the air at her.

“I better get back to work.” She smiled apologetically. “It was lovely meeting you.” To Vordol she asked, “So, I’ll be seeing you around all weekend?”

“You most certainly will.”

Damn, that voice of his made her knees weak. The appreciate look in his eye make her think he was hungry for more than just dinner. Or was just wishful thinking on her part? Somewhat distracted, Pitannah went to assist the customer.

Throughout the rest of her shift, she could feel Vordol’s eyes on her as she delivered food and drinks to nearby tables. It took a little while, but eventually she regained her rhythm. With a skill long honed during years in the service industry, she sidestepped the rambunctious young men who had already consumed too much drink or some other substance and were making a bit of a scene. Then she navigated around the table of pudgy middle aged men who had given unwanted attention to every female who happened to pass too close.

And so her evening passed. Much like every evening. But at least for a few days she would have something pleasant to look at.

Vordol Silveira. She fanned her now warm face. So much for thinking she had outgrown her teenaged obsession with him. The younger Vordol had been something but this older version would likely haunt her dreams for years to come. The bad boy she had known had grown into a predator that oozed sex. Ms. Ruby would probably have to fight the bimbos off of him through the competition.

That thought both amused and annoyed her.

Kara James brings her new Werewolf series

Please welcome author Kara James

Werewolves and Rugby…can you handle their bite?

Wolf Binding by Kara James extended bleed.jpgWolf Binding – Book 1

Ryan Taylor had everything going for him as Rugby half-back until a werewolf bite changed everything. Now he has to keep his secret hidden.

Jessica needs an exclusive story to lock-in her new role as a reporter. Traveling to New Zealand, she gets assigned finding out more about the elusive Ryan Taylor. Except, this bad boy would rather remain secretive.

Excerpt: 

Ryan removed the last two drink holders and nudged the car door closed with his hip as he balanced the teams grub. The late November sun warmed his skin, promising another hot Christmas this year. Maybe they’d chip in for a visit to Europe, or even the States, and take in a bit of snow and skiing.

For the bulk of this rugby season, they’d stayed to themselves. But with his bar fight two months ago, they needed to ramp up their good reputation.

Across the street, a tabloid camera clicked and Ryan waved.

He was a magnet for trouble and he didn’t know how long he could keep his team’s true existence under wraps with all the publicity hounds following them all the time. He juggled the drinks as he opened the front door. “Well, don’t anyone bother to let me in.”

“It’s your house.” Carman tossed an empty wrapper in the trash. “Figured you had a key.”

A few of the guys bounded forward, snatching the drinks out of Ryan’s hands.

With all the drinks gone, Ryan tossed the holders into the trash. “Wait, where’s my shake?”

“Sorry, mate.” Neal ran a hand over his face. “I got carried away and had two. Can I get you something else?”

“No. I’ll get a beer.” His muscles ached from his earlier encounter with the jaywalker. He wanted to get drunk and lay naked in his bed without worrying about anything. He and his team were too popular. And one day, one of them was going to slip. It was just a matter of time. But what could they do? If the entire squad retired, people would question. If they dispersed into different teams, the chance of discovery became even greater. Scientists would swoop down and experiment on them. Dissect them.

He’d volunteered to host this year’s Christmas fund for children in hopes of building the public’s trust, but it was all a ruse. If the people discovered the truth about their underdog, the Hellion Rugby Team, the women and children would scream in fright and the men would defend themselves, and lives would be lost. And it would be his fault for craving acceptance, normality – even if it was false.

He crushed the beer can in his hand, then threw it into the trash.

“Hey man, you okay?” Brady’s dark brows furrowed.

“Yeah. Just tired. I’m gonna hit the hay.”

“Whoa, what’s the matter with you?” Carmen asked. “Dropping out while the sun is still shining?”

He shrugged but gave a twisted smile. “Guess you guys aren’t exciting enough to keep me entertained.”

“Did he just insult us?” Carmen waved out a hand. “Maybe it’s time for a night run. Let’s see if this old man can keep up with the younger members of the pack.”

“Try it and see,” Ryan snarled, hunching his shoulders.

Carmen glared but took a more submissive posture.

Note to self, take this mutt down a notch, and soon.

The doorbell rang, and half the guys jerked to attention. Their fingers curled into fists. Everyone knew Ryan didn’t get visitors. Ever. He even had a Post Office Box at the mail station so no delivery drivers surprised him. Wouldn’t do any good to order a pizza then transform into a wolf while the delivery guy screamed like a girl and ran. Even if he wasn’t hungry, the instinct to chase and kill would be too strong in his animal form.

“I’ll get it. Probably someone lost.” And how had they gotten past his ten-foot-tall security gate? He swung open the door, wearing his best scowl. “What?”

Before him stood a buxom, auburn haired beauty. She straightened her shoulders, her pinstriped suit smeared with grass stains and mud. Twigs clung to one side of her hair and one of her heels was twisted so much it looked like it might snap off at any moment.

“Hi! I’m Jessica Martin from The Australian newspaper. We have an appointment.”

“We do?” He leaned against the doorframe and crossed his arms.

She lifted her chin, her mouth forming a thin line. “Yes, I’m here to interview you.”

Wolf Holding (1)Careful what you wish for…

Kevin Taylor awakes to his worst nightmare. His leg has been amputated from the knee down because of his motorcycle stunt accident. Thinking his life is over, he broods until a new physical therapist takes over his care and he finds himself falling for her.

Amber Carter loves her job helping people, but she lives with a secret. As a teen, she tried a spell from her family’s grimoire and her parents ended up dead. Now she’d rather just live a normal life. Except when Kevin finds her book and turns himself into a wolf, will she have enough power to fix him?

Wolf Holding – Book 2 in the Wolf Binding series, but written as a standalone.

Kara James Bio

Kara James has been fascinated with Rugby and werewolves. So what better way to bring her two passions together than with bad boy romance in the Binding series?

She also holds degree belts in Karate and Mauy Thai – and was excited to blend MMA and Shifters in her Shadow series.

Kara lives with her family and is a full-time mom and a writer (whenever all the kids are in bed).
