Release Blitz, Excerpt& Giveaway: Protecting His Pack By Morgan Elektra
North American Wolves, Book 1
It’s been less than a year since Lane Perkins left his controlling ex and the big city behind for a new job and a new life in small town Watson Hollow. When he meets enigmatic widower Jared Atherton, Lane can’t deny he feels a pull, but there’s no way he’s getting involved with another man so soon.
Jared has enough on his plate as a single father and Alpha of the smallest pack in North America. He’s not interested in a relationship, especially not with the aggravating human teacher who knows nothing of his world.
Fate has other plans however, and when a threat to Lane’s life leads him within the walls of Jared’s estate, they’ll be forced to face their attraction once and for all. But will it be enough to save them both from the wrath of a bitter rival?
Excerpt:Growing up the adopted child of an older couple, his parents strove to make every holiday a fantastic, Norman Rockwell-esque event. Not only were there decorations and music throughout the month of December, but both his mother and father would bake and spend days wrapping the presents they had taken months to choose. They gave the kind of gifts you had no idea how much you wanted until you pulled the paper open to reveal them. As an adult — though even now at twenty-eight, he alternated from moment to moment between feeling too ancient to live and too young to be trusted with so much responsibility— he had carried that tradition on. Even when he was living with Kurt and the preparations had been tasteful white twinkle lights, expensive wine, and fancy hors d’oeuvres rather than the light-up Santas, caroling, and hot chocolate drunk through candy cane straws that he actually preferred. Now that he was on his own again, Lane was planning on making this Christmas his best yet. He shook off the combination of sharp, piercing anger and the bruised, melancholic ache of hurt that always accompanied thoughts of Kurt and lifted his insulated cup of hot chocolate. Lane’s lips tipped upward as he sipped his warm, sweet drink. The rich scent of cinnamon and chocolate wafted up around him. His new colleagues at Lawrence F. Talbot Elementary thought he was crazy for coming to the mecca of consumerism just weeks before Christmas—they’d told him so, Meryl especially—but he loved the madness and the melee. Plus, the Queenstown Mall really did it up for the holiday. Built after the real heydey of American malls, Queenstown Central Mall was an enormous, beige, windowless box. The only nominal point of interest in its architecture was that it resembled a squat X when viewed from above. Inside, though, the the developers had somehow managed to capture the quaint charm of old city streets lined with shops. There weren’t many big name stores left in the building, but the ones that were there went full out for Christmas.
