WELCOME T.F. WALSH AND CLOAKED IN FUR!!

Happy Saturday everyone!


Today, I'm so excited to introduce you one of my fellow Crimson Romance authors, T.F. Walsh. T.F. is here to talk about her paranormal romance---which I just love, CLOAKED IN FUR. So, before I ramble on forever, I'm going to turn this blog over to T.F. 




Hi Nancy,

I grew up listening to bedtime Romanian stories that could only be compared to the Brothers Grimm tales, and ever since then folklore and mythology has fascinated me. These influences have trickled into my stories, and in particular Cloaked in Fur, which is based in Transylvania—a place seeping with legends. Now, when it comes to love, I’m a sucker for stories about two people from different worlds falling madly in love and fighting against the odds to stay together. This is the story I wanted to tell in Cloaked in Fur, showing how far someone was willing to go to hold onto true love.

Today I’m sharing a saucy snippet from Cloaked in Fur between Daciana and Connel and how they deal with the pressures around them.

I leaned into him and placed a soft kiss on his lips. Rather than feeling hurt, I craved his touch and warmth. He trailed his fingers up my neck, cupping the side of my face and planted pecks on my nose and chin before finding my mouth again. I hungered for him and inhaled his breath as he pulled me into him. His roaming hands threaded underneath my shirt and guided me closer. I wasted no time climbing onto his lap. I stared into those chocolate eyes, which concealed no secrets, no uncertainty, just confidence of what he wanted: me. And that reassurance ignited my insatiable desire, leaving me breathless.
I lifted my arms and raised my shirt over my head to reveal a black sports bra.
His face froze. “What happened?”
I looked down at my bandaged wound, and thanked the moon the bleeding had stopped, along with the pain. “A small injury.”
“From the other night?”
I worked his shirt out of his pants. “It’s just a scratch.” I pressed up against him and seized his lower lip into my mouth.
His hands massaged my butt, and he greedily found my tongue.
I ripped the shirt off him in one motion, throwing it behind the sofa. My hands wandered over his firm pecs, snaking down his ribbed stomach, following the golden hair that vanished beneath his pants where his firm bulge waited to break out.
He whispered, “I promise to be gentle around your injury.”
I relaxed into him, unable to get close enough. “Maybe I don’t want you to be gentle.”
A smile curled on the side of his mouth with the promise of sex, and he gripped my hips harder, thrusting me against the hardness of his erection. I kissed him, and the heat drove me crazy. He unlatched my bra and tugged it off my shoulders.

If you want to keep reading, you’ll have to grab yourself a copy of Cloaked in Fur. I know, I’m such a tease. It’s on sale right now over at Amazon for only 99c.

Cloaked in Fur is Available Now
As a moonwulf, Daciana never expected to fall in love with a human. Hell, she never imagined that she’d abandon her pack, endanger everyone around her, and break the worst rule possible. But she did.
A rogue werewolf is killing Daciana’s friends, and she sets on capturing the creature.  She’ll do whatever it takes to stop the beast. The police and her boyfriend, Inspector Connell Lonescu, are starting to question her involvement in the murders, which is endangering the pack’s secret existence. But when the pack alpha kidnaps Connell, revealing the awful truth about the creature and its connection to the pack, Daciana must choose between saving the man she loves and saving her pack family from certain death.
Paranormal Suspense With Strong Romance

HAPPY RELEASE DAY IN THE SHADOW OF PRIDE

Good morning everyone!!!


Today is the DAY! In the Shadow of Pride releases to the world. It no longer just lives in my head and heart. I'm sharing it to you for all time. 


THIS IS ME RIGHT NOW--YIPPEEEEEE





Okay, I'm taking a breath, in through the nose---out through the mouth. Release days don't come often for an author and it's just so very exciting.








I know that I'm going to come down from this release high and things are going get back to normal. Until that moment happens, I want to share with you a few photos that I kept close while writing In the Shadow of Pride. Every author needs a little eye candy to look at now and then. 









So...with that said---I would love for you to meet my inspiration for my wonderful hero, Special-Agent-In-Charge, Luke 'Mac' McNeil.




This is actor, Josh Holloway from the famous series Lost and now he's starring as Gabriel Vaughn on the new CBS series, Intelligence. Josh makes a perfect Mac, doesn't he? The instant I saw this photo, I knew he had had to be Mac. 










Choosing my heroine always takes me a little longer. So for Lexie Trevena, I finally found this photo of actress, Jessica Alba. Jessica is almost exactly what I envisioned my heroine while I was writing Pride. I can see a loving single mother in Jessica. And just look at her eyes---good grief--- would she give Mac a run for his money or what? So...let me know what you think of Jessica Alba as Lexie once you have had a chance to read Pride. If not her, then who would you have chosen? I would love to know...





The next thing I needed to inspire my writing of In the Shadow of Pride was the setting. Austin Texas had to be the city. Did you know I'm a misplaced Austinite? I spent a year at the University of Texas before I married my hero and moved to Maryland. Austin will always be one of our homes.




Austin Texas is a very beautiful, unique city. I have never found another city quite like Austin. It was the perfect backdrop for In the Shadow of Pride.







This photo was very important to Pride. One glance and I headed off in a direction that change my story and made it so much stronger. Such an exciting suspenseful element. Maybe one day, I'll hold a contest question about this photo. What scene was inspired by this photo....hummmm?  














This scene of the walkway up to the Texas State Capitol build also inspired a very dramatic moment in Pride. I'm really bad about giving things away. You never want to tell me what you got someone for Christmas. I can't keep it to myself. Same goes here. Just know I'm having a real hard time not spilling the beans. You're going to have to read all the way to the end of Pride to see where I used this photo. You have to come back and tell me if I got the scene right.



The last inspiration photo is of Big Bend National Park. Part of the Pride takes place just northwest of here.




It's a rugged, beautiful country. I loved using it to help create a very exciting suspenseful element in the story. It's at this point in Pride that Mac and Lexie must begin to trust each other before something unthinkable happens.


Well, that's all for today.  I hope you enjoyed the photos I used to inspire In the Shadow of Pride. If you have any questions for me, you can hit the little pencil below. If you have a hard time reaching me there, please, please, please use the NEW Contact Me icon at the top of the page. Send me an email and I'll post your comment and my answer in the comment section for you. I really do love making a connection to readers. 

There will be more to come this week. In the meantime, I hope you all have a great Monday. As always, be nice to each other.

Hugs to all,

Nancy C. Weeks

START READING IN THE SHADOW OF PRIDE TODAY!

Hi everyone!


In the Shadow of Pride will be released to the world TOMORROW. You can start reading it TODAY by clicking the Google Preview button below. 


http://blogspot.nancycweeks.com/p/in-shadow-of-pride-preview.html


As I have said before, I had such a great time writing this book. Throwing my gorgeous Mac McNeil and spunky, Lexie Trevena into life altering situations, making them work through their animosity toward each other, and then watching them fall in love on the page is what makes being a romantic suspense author such a joy.


 Well, that's it until tomorrow. I'm so excited about In the Shadow of Pride. Don't be surprised if you hear a loud 'whoopeeeee' first thing in the morning. Enjoy the read.  And as always have a great day. Be nice to one another.  


((Hugs to all))
