Blurb:

Being the Beta to the Panneath Alpha of Australia isn't an easy job, but Liam Anderson uses his position and constant travel to search for his mate. Unfortunately, he's yet to meet the person fated to be his.

Declan Morgan witnesses something he shouldn't and has no choice but to flee Cairns and hope he's not followed. Exhausted, naked, and starving, he ends up at a house in the small town of Atherton.

Imagine Liam's surprise when he discovers his mate standing in his backyard. Overjoyed at finding him, he's also concerned the reason Declan had to run will get in the way of their happily ever after.


Excerpt:



Liam Anderson pulled his beat up old truck into the driveway of his modest three bedroom home and shut off the engine. He couldn't quite shake the odd sensation he'd had for the past year. He felt restless, as if waiting for something to happen but he didn't know what.
As a Beta to Benjamin Taylor, the Panneath Alpha of Australia, Liam's life would never be described as dull. The Panneath Alpha didn't only have his own pack to run, he also oversaw all the other Alphas in the country. Ben made a great leader and the Australian packs had prospered since he'd come to the position. Liam felt privileged to count him as one of his closest friends. But Liam still felt as though a small part of him remained missing. He wanted, above all else, to find his mate.
The feeling started about a year ago when Jake Richmond, the Beta from the Leyburn pack and his mate, Patrick Holland, the pack Alpha's brother, came to stay for a while. Their visit had been interesting to say the least, and Liam really couldn't be more pleased Jake and Rick had finally sorted out all their problems and settled down into mated bliss. Liam wanted what they had so badly he could almost taste it. He wished he could be so lucky. Liam had been searching a long time for his mate. Being one of the Betas required a great deal of travel, visiting other packs on behalf of the Alpha. He enjoyed the travel as it made it easier for him to continue his search for his mate. Liam had also been born with a gift. Not many wolves that he knew of had additional abilities to the ones they all had of super strength, enhanced sight and hearing, immunity to disease, and a longer life span.
Liam could see mate threads. Every shifter he'd ever met had a distinctive strand that searched for its other half. As soon as Liam met the second half of a pair, a connection formed in his mind, letting him know who they were matched with. He would then let the person know where they could find their mate. He hadn't yet encountered anyone who hadn't been overjoyed at the prospect of finding their soul-mate.
But throughout all the travelling and visiting of different packs, and all the couples he had helped join together, he still hadn't met his own mate. Liam longed to have a soul deep connection with a man. He wanted to love, to wake up and see the same pair of emerald green eyes every day for the rest of his life. He had no idea how he knew what colour eyes his mate had, but something deep down inside told him he would be looking into deep green eyes.
Pushing his morose thoughts to the back of his mind, Liam removed the keys from the ignition, got out of his truck and headed for the mailbox out front by the curb. He had forgotten to check it on Friday. After he removed what looked like two bills, he turned towards his front door, feeling the hair on the back of his arms stand up. Liam looked around, but even with his enhanced sight, couldn't see anything in the gathering darkness. Lifting his head, Liam sniffed. He caught a slight, sweet scent on the air but before anything could register in his brain, the scent drifted away.
Not noticing anything else out of the ordinary, Liam unlocked his house and went inside. He dumped his wallet, keys, and mail on the small hallway table he had situated by the front door, kicked his work boots off, and flicked a light switch on. Liam flexed his toes. He didn't know if his wolf or his human half detested shoes more, but he always felt better when he could be barefoot.
Liam headed into the kitchen. Had a quick look in the fridge and not seeing anything that took his fancy, he opened the freezer. When in doubt, a nice juicy steak always did the trick. Pulling a pack of thick T-bones out of the freezer, Liam put them in the microwave to help the defrosting along.
Satisfied he had dinner under control for the time being, Liam grabbed a beer from the fridge. Bottle in hand, he headed down the hallway towards his bedroom, stripping his shirt as he went. The cool evening air hit his sweat-covered chest and caused his nipples to harden. He thought about lighting a fire to warm the place but decided to leave it until after he had checked his e-mails.
Even with the weather being cool during the day they were still doing hot sweaty work. Feeling better when the dirty material had been removed from his skin Liam threw the dirty clothes in his washing basket. He walked over to the small desk he'd set up in the corner of his room with his laptop.
Booting up the computer, Liam settled back and took a long swig of his ice cold beer. A wolf shifter's body always ran a little hotter than a human's and the cold beverage felt wonderful going down after a hard day at work. So much so that he didn't mind waiting for the computer to load all the start-up programs.

Shifters are my favorite.

I Just finished reading Dealing with the Dead it is a toss up between magic and shifting love em both.

Megan H. said...

Hm, I'd have to say Vampires. While I love shifters, nothing can beat old fashioned, scary, non-sparkling vampires.

SheriV said...

Sounds like a great story. I love any kind of shifter. :) I really love wolf shifters though.

Didn't we meet Liam in one of the Holland Bros. books? Glad to be getting back to that world and would love updates on the Hollands.

Crissy Morris said...

First, the Liam cover is stunning! Wow! He's gorgeous. And secondly, I love wolf shifters the most. It's something about the strength and ability, the alpha males and their mates, and the mate bond...ugh...it gets me every time :)

I can't possibly decide on a favorite, that wouldn't be fair!
I love shifters, especially unique one, like penguins or horses! lol
But Vamps and Mages have a definite draw too!
Oh, I just love paranormals of all kinds!

Vampires, well-written ones for grown-ups. I also like humans with special powers, mages, witches, psychics and stuff. And shifters!

I'd say my favourite paranormal is the fey :)

Hi Toni, I love your books and have read all of them. My favourite paranormal has to be wolf shifter's. The whole idea that they recognise their mate and mate for life really pushes my buttons. Can't wait to read the Atherton Pack series and I'm hoping we might see some cameo's from the Holland brothers in there.

D: oh no.. I missed the voucher...
but I hope I'm in time for this. :D

Heh, my favorite para being is... hmm... I think I'm gonna have to go with shifters in general. I've been reading a lot of them lately and am simply fascinated by each author's unique spin on each. Like Mary Calmes' and Andrea Speed... also, Lynn Hagen's and even Gabrielle Evans... they're all so awesome!

Heh, though, Vampires do lead the top as well... LOL....

Thank you for the giveaway!
