Alone in the Artist's Lounge. Read a snippet from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #romance #MPreg #PNR #MLM #shifter #omegaverse #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which will release through Decadent Publishing. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. I'll keep you posted when I know anything about a release date. I should be getting edits for the story soon.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Jun was on his way up to meet Ash, and ran into TK (from Bunny Omega on the Run), while exiting the elevator.

In this weekend's snippet, I'm skipping ahead a little bit. Jun meets a few more artists from Adan Records, and learns once again that Ash can't stop talking about him. Now, they're alone in the Artist's Lounge....


Sticking my thumb over my shoulder, I glanced at the now closed door. “They didn’t have to leave.”

Ash sighed before standing. “Naw. They wanted to leave earlier, but I convinced them to stay.”

“In case I didn’t show up?” I only asked based on what the others had said, though I didn’t understand why I mattered so much.

He chewed on the corner of his lip and nodded. “I wasn’t sure if you would. Anyway....” 

**That's ten, but I've included a little more for your reading pleasure.**

He clasped his hands in front of him. “Take a seat, and let me get you something to drink. Do you want coffee, tea, water, beer, wine, soda? I think there might be hot chocolate and some coolers, too.”

While he rustled through the pod cups, I took a seat at the end of the couch. “Just a water is good, thanks.” Any more caffeine, and my leopard cat would jump right out of me, while alcohol would give him complete control over my actions.

“Oh, okay.” He busied himself at the beverage and snack counter while I took in the rest of the room.

Everything was white, the walls, the ceiling, and all the furniture, including two full-body massage chairs. At the far end were two computer stations and a large table for eating or maybe meetings, with a large shelving unit dividing the space. The color in the room came from the framed albums released under Adan Records from their various artists. All in order of release, the newest being Stay from AI.

Ash returned with two glasses of water, and after handing me one, he plopped down on the couch. Right beside me. Maybe two inches between us when there were several feet of unoccupied space on the other side of him. I didn’t mind. I wasn’t repulsed by him or his sweet vanilla and brown sugar scent, but I worried I didn’t smell the freshest. Though I gather he didn’t mind since he stayed by my side. And at some point he had changed since I’d seen him in the morning, no longer in the button-down silver shirt and black leather pants. Instead, he wore sweat pants and an oversized hoodie. With only the two of us in the room, I actually felt overdressed.


HIS OMEGA ON STAGE
Shifter Towers book four

Jun
For leopard cat shifter, Jun, being the rogue alpha in high school hadn’t helped him as an adult. Though he sometimes believed he was ready to find a mate, past experiences taught him that those he loves eventually leave him. So, he protects his heart by seeing omegas looking for nothing more than a one-night stand. Until he runs into someone from his past.

Ash
As the first omega signed to Adan Records, AI is anxious for the release of his debut album. Being a leopard cat shifter instead of an actual leopard like the rest of his family has always made him feel small and insignificant. But now he’s about to shine bright in front of the world, all on his own, without an alpha by his side. He doesn’t need one, and definitely doesn’t have time for one. Though when he runs into someone from his past who knows him as Ash, he wants to give this alpha all of his attention.

On Stage
But with all the problems that fame brings, will Ash be able to make a relationship work? Will Jun fight for the omega he’s sure is his fated mate? Or will they just let each other slip away, believing what they have just isn’t enough?.

COMING SOON!

Encounter with a Global Pop Superstar! Read a snippet from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #romance #PNR #MLM #shifter #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which will release through Decadent Publishing. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. I'll keep you posted when I know anything about a release date. I should be getting edits for the story soon.

**Quick note: If any of my fellow authors need a blog spot for a new release, cover reveal, or anything else book related, just email me. I'd be happy to host you here.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Ash got the courage to ask Jun to come with him to get a thank you beverage, but Jun had to work. Jun agreed to go after he closed the store though.

In this weekend's snippet, I'm skipping ahead quite a bit again. Jun has finished his shift, and although he went back and forth as to whether he was going to meet Ash after, he is now on his way there. He already had an interesting encounter with the guy at the front desk, but he made it to the elevator and is about to have another interesting encounter. (*Hint: I'm bringing back a main character from the first book in the series.)


As soon as I stepped out of the elevator, I came face-to-face with TK. The TK. Global pop superstar. With perfect tan skin, dyed purple hair, and lose clothing he made look fashionable rather than frumpy. The ultimate alpha.

I jumped back, sure he would object to me being there. To even lay my eyes on him.

“Oh, hi.” He reached for my ID card. “So you’re Jun.”

**That's ten, but I've included a little more for your reading pleasure.**

I tilted my head. “What do you mean?” What had he heard about me? And from whom? Had I done something wrong?

He laughed, causing wrinkles to form in the corners of his eyes. “Ash. He hasn’t stopped talking about you today.”

“Really?” Why? He’d just released his debut album. Why was he even thinking about me?

“Yep.” He stuck out his hand. “I’m TK by the way. It’s good to meet you, put a face to the name.”

“I know who you are.” I wiped my palm across my pants before shaking his hand. “And um, thank you. It’s good to meet you, too.”

“I’ve got to get home to my family, but I’m sure I’ll see you again. Ash is in the artist’s lounge.” He pointed down the hall. “Last door on the right hand side.”

I nodded while my leopard cat gloated. “Thank you so much. Have a good night.”

“You, too.” He patted my shoulder as he passed me.

The stakes have never been higher! Check out RISE BY MOONLIGHT, the explosive conclusion to @NancyGideon's BY MOONLIGHT series #romance #PNR #newrelease


RISE BY MOONLIGHT

By Moonlight Series

by Nancy Gideon

Max and Charlotte return for the explosive conclusion of the “By Moonlight” series . . . 

and the stakes have never been higher!

He’s the Promised One

A Mobster’s attack dog turned legitimate business powerhouse, Max Savoie is the reluctant leader of New Orleans’ shapeshifter clan. They’ve kept to anonymous shadows, working and living unnoticed by the human world until their new Shifter King’s past draws dangerous outsiders who threaten all.

She’s the Protector

A fiercely determined NOPD detective, Charlotte Caissie has sworn to defend her beloved city and her unborn child from both criminals and otherworldly factions at war. While standing boldly at the side of her mate/husband, secrets from the past return to shake the foundation of her beliefs.

They have a Problem

Walking a marital tight rope between opposite worlds, Max and Cee Cee’s paths place truth and trust at odds when outside threats force enemies to become allies. The time to take a stand for their family and their future is at hand. Time to rise together for the survival of all they love!


“Every delicious word on the page exhilarates with a sensuous ferocity. Hopelessly addicted.” 

– NYT bestselling author, Darynda Jones

FIND ON GOODREADS




Genevieve Savorie couldn’t be underestimated. She had resources and money and motivation. And she had what they did not. Time. Time to plot and plan and discover their vulnerabilities. Charlotte was his strength, but also his weakness, his Queen to be protected at all costs if the match of skill and strategy was to be won. In allowing her to return to the streets, he was exposing his flank as well as his heart.  

But they didn’t know his mate. And that would be their downfall. 

That, and being foolish enough to touch what was his. 

“Tomorrow,” he began, voice soft and threaded dangerously with steel, “we go back to work and find out who betrayed our trust. I put Silas on our mysterious Mr. Maitlin from Chicago. Perhaps we’ll get lucky and intercept him and the information he stole.” Genetic information on his wife and unborn child. “And perhaps discover who his accomplice is here in New Orleans.” 

Cee Cee’s jaw turned concrete. “Brady. We both know it.” 

“Yes, we do.” Quietly, determinedly said. 

“Someone put our child in danger, Max. We’ll find out who. And we’ll make them very, very sorry.”
