We’re starting a new segment at Fanged Press called “Friday Freebie” and it’s where we promote the Free ebook of an Indie Author.

A free sample of Comanche Haven by Catherine Wolffe is now live on Amazon. It contains the first 3 chapters of the full version which is the first book in the Loflin Legacy series.

Here’s a snippet from Comanche Haven.

“Lying very still, Seth tried to quiet his mind. The stars, the same ones they’d laid under so long ago gleamed like jewels in the ink black sky. Seth couldn’t help but brood. He could still remember their first kiss so long ago, and how Celia had raised her beautiful chin, gazing at him with such trust and innocence. Her face was in his hands before he’d realized it. Gently, he brushed his thumb across her lips. Lowering his head, he hesitated just a moment and then his lips took hers. They were so soft. She felt warm and pliant in his arms. He could feel the yielding of her young body, and the rush of blood to his loins. It was his intention to kiss her but the desire, which washed over him, was staggering. He felt as if he were drowning. She sighed, and he covered her mouth with his once more and breathed her in.”

About Comanche Haven

From the moment Celia, the emerald-eyed, Comanche half-breed, gets off the stage in Tyler, Texas, Seth Loflin realizes he is on a collision course with the past. She was his first love and now the Shooter Creek’s ranch boss can’t allow her to succumb to the danger that stalks her. Someone wants to kidnap her and sell her as a slave, but now that she’s in his protective arms, he intends to keep her safe. Celia can’t run back to the safety of her former life in South Carolina. And if she stays at Shooter Creek with Seth, she’ll be putting the man she has always loved and his ranch in danger of harboring a Comanche. But Seth refuses to leave her side, and his vow to protect her gives Celia the hope and courage she needs. Now she’ll fight for her new life with Seth…or die trying.

Catherine Wolffe Releases ‘Waking Up Dead’

Waking Up DeadFellow werewolf fan, Catherine Wolffe is on our blog today. I’d like to thank her for taking the time to stop by  to introduce her new book in The Western Werewolf Legend Series.  We sat down and she was gracious enough to give us a sneak peek into the book and answer a few questions. And yes, if you’re a Jimmy Thomas fan, that’s him on the cover 😀 Yummy!

Start the Western Werewolf Legend for Free

But first, I’d like to let you guys know that you can start Catherine’s series for Free at Smashwords. She has the first few chapters of Book 1 included. Click here to download from Smashwords. Click here to download from Amazon.

Also I’d like to thank Catherine for being on my blog and for letting ME select the excerpt for this article. She’s a talented and confident writer and I just love this series! I’m starting Book 2 this week and it’s just as good as Book 1. We thought it would be a fun idea to change things up a bit. I hope you like the excerpt from Chapter 1 of Waking Up Dead.

Your upcoming book is part of The Western Werewolf Legend series.  Can you tell us about Waking up Dead?

I’d love to, Victoria.  Waking up Dead is the second book in the Western Werewolf Legend.  The setting is 1864 and the civil war is dragging on.  Sonja Brooks, a Pennsylvania widow has fallen in love with Tyler Loflin, a Rebel soldier.  She embraces her wolf while he does his best to protect her from the vampires searching for her.  With a sharp-tongued witch and a werewolf god as mentors, Sonja and Ty set out to right injustices and save the innocent.

My main characters, Sonja Brooks and Tyler Loflin struggle with the ‘gift’ and the danger that faces them as werewolves with special powers.  Sonja’s blood is coveted by vampires because it allows them to walk in the daylight.  She’s shared her blood with Tyler in order to heal wounds he sustained in battle and so his blood is sought after as well.

How did you come up with the title?

The danger these two new werewolves face could mean their end at any time.  Then with a story twist, you find out the title has more teeth than at first assumed.

Will there be a third book in the series?

Yes, I have a third book planned.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers? 

I appreciate your patience and hope you enjoy Waking up Dead.  I’d love to hear what you think.

Do you have a favorite chapter or passage you’d like to share?

I have several scenes that I enjoyed writing, however, here’s one I think we can all relate to, even if we’re not werewolves in love.

Excerpts from Waking Up Dead:

Read a Bonus Excerpt from Chapter 1 – The Yankees on Victoria Embers’ blog.

The following excerpt is from Chapter 3 – For the Sake of Brothers in Arms

Suddenly, an almost discernible ripple in the water had Sonja’s eyes opening and a soft gasp leaving her lips.  Ty’s hands surrounded her waist in the water, pulling her close.  He stood beside her naked and aroused against her back and buttocks.  The delirious sensation of desire warmed her as he made sure their bodies came together making her aware of him all along her length.  His pride swelled with their combined heat and she moaned aloud with pleasure.  “You certainly know how to make an entrance, Lieutenant.”

She turned to him as he grinned that wolfish grin of his, which had every nerve in her body going on high alert.  Her attraction to this man could not be denied, nor could she deny how much she cared for him and wanted desperately to protect him.  Even if his male ego wouldn’t recognize her efforts.  After making love at night, Sonja would lie awake as her exhausted brain tried desperately to devise a way to keep him safe.  He may have feelings for her, but this mess wasn’t of his making.  He didn’t deserve to endure the hardships dumped upon him.

Ty lowered his head and captured her lips bringing her attentions back to focus on the man.

“My woman is thinking again, I see.”  He nipped her bottom lip before switching his attentions to her earlobe followed by the tender skin along her neck.

“Of late, I think a lot.  Still, I can’t find the answers.”  She dropped her head back as his tongue lingered near her collarbone.  His teeth found the taste of her enticing.  Before she could object, he’d taken her mouth again in a kiss more forceful than the first.  Scorching her with its intensity, branding her with its fire, the kiss drove Sonja to do no more than stand, unable to move in the sizzling heat of his embrace.

“You needn’t worry about answers.  They will come.”  Ty’s breath, warm and moist on her skin shoved rational thoughts to the back of the line as he traced the swell of one wet breast to the taut peak.  The sensation of his mouth on her flesh, nursing her nipple tugged at her coherency.  Soon the pull on her womb from his attentions brought a creamy warmth to pool between her legs.  Lax with desire, Sonja held on with everything she had left.  “Have you finished your bath, my lady?”

The question seemed rhetorical to Sonja.  “If I wasn’t, would it matter?” she chided.  Wanting to prick his conscience, she ran a slim, damp finger along the bridge of his perfectly straight Choctaw nose.  “You sir aren’t behaving like a gentleman.  What’s a poor defenseless girl to do?”

“Well, since you ask, I can think of a thing or two she could do.”  Without another word, he scooped her up and sloshed out of the water.  Sonja considered he would deposit her on the bank and allow her to get dressed.

She was wrong.  Instead, Ty carried her further from the water’s edge before gently laying her back on a blanket she hadn’t realized was there.  Under the cover of a great old oak tree, he stretched out beside her and used his shirt to dry her limbs before throwing the voluminous dress she had taken off over them both as protection from anyone who should happen upon them.

Her body hummed with anticipation as he ran his long, lean hand slowly down her slight curves to the crisp hair of her mound.  Unable to take her eyes off his profile, Sonja’s breath caught in a surge of yearning so abrupt and intense it felt like pain.

“Ah, my woman wants me, I wager.  You’ve missed me while I was gone?”  His voice had gone low with desire.  Slipping two fingers inside the heat of her need, Ty stroked steadily.

Sonja could have floated on such a whisper-thin cloud of sensation forever.  No one had ever made her feel like this man did.  Certainly not her first husband, Robert, rest his dead soul.  Sex had been merely a means to an end with him, nothing to compare to this dissent into paradise with Ty.

“Tell me, Sonja, did you miss me?  I want to hear the words.”  The thinly veiled passion in his eyes stirred her longing to new heights as he worked a third finger inside her.  Sonja felt her muscles tighten as desire warmed her to the core.

“Yes, I missed you so much.”  Reaching up, she sank her hand into his long dark hair, which was still damp from the stream.  “Please, Ty.  I want you inside me.”

“Soon, Sonja, soon.  But first, I want to taste you.  I want to capture your need and drink you in like wine.”  His mouth grazed her nipple as his fingers continued their onslaught.

Sonja arched with the contact of his mouth on her breast.  The tug of his mouth sent her spiraling down into a world where only need and desire reigned supreme.  Any other thoughts vanished into oblivion.

Grazing his jaw against her stomach as he traveled lower, he growled low in his throat.  “Um, this is what a man wants to come home to.”

EXCERPT from Redemption (The following excerpt is for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY)

He smiled at me smugly and focused his attention on my hips. I followed his gaze. He wrapped both of his hands around mine as I held his cock against my naked belly. He stroked my hands, and then opening up the palms of his large hands, he quietly encouraged me to assume the task. When I took charge, he mumbled, “You’re stronger than you think.”

A fever of blushes covered my face. “Oh my goodness, did I hurt you?” I wanted to blush again, but his declaration, that he felt something quite literally when he had met me surfaced in my mind and sent me into oblivion. True love. I gazed up at him, marveling at the look of pleasure on his face. True love.

He moaned and rocked his hips gently into my hands.

I rubbed the head of his cock with my thumb, feeling a sweet stickiness at the tip.

Raphael moved his hand between my thighs and rubbed my clit, his fingers pumping inside me a few times.

My hips met his movements and I groaned, feeling the warmth of his manhood slide between my legs.

“I don’t want to control these feelings I have for you.” He gathered me up in his arms. “I don’t know where they came from. Maybe it was the wolf chant that did it. I don’t know for sure, but I know I feel this.”

A slight smile crossed his lips. He embraced me tightly and then picked me up in his arms.

I placed my hand over his heart. “True love,” I whispered as the words expelled out of my mouth in the form of a few short breaths. Could it be?

“This can’t be wrong, Caroline. I don’t want to deny the possibility of the love we can have. Say you agree?”

“I think I already love you, Raphael. I’ve never known anyone like you. You’re a glorious, magnificent vampire.”

When I felt his easing himself into me, my body melted. “Oh my god, yes,” I cried out. “Yes! Yes!” Wanting to increase our pace, I started to ride him with a newborn intensity. The warmth of his blood raced through my veins. “I’m yours,” I cried out. “I’m yours!”

“Shh,” he said. “Don’t listen to my blood. I don’t want you to be my servant or blood source. Equal.” With his muscular arms, he brought me up and down a time or two, shifting the rhythm of lovemaking to a slower urgency. “I want us to be equals. I want to cherish this moment forever. I want to look in your eyes as I’m inside you and know if we are never to be together again we had this one moment, out here in this wasteland.”
