During dinner, Logan kept an eye on Zane and David, wondering what was so special about the newest member of the Blackwood Pack that Jackson would ask for a picture of him. He hadn’t told his brother about what happened when Zane and David shook hands, but he’d get to that when he called him later, back in the privacy of his hotel suite.
“David, are you coming back to the hotel with us tonight?” asked Theo.
Zane spoke up, “We haven’t decided what we’re doing, Theo.”
“Where are you from?” asked Norm, then adding quickly, “Not that it matters but I was just wondering.”
“No problem,” David said, “I’m from a region in Italy called Tuscany.”
“I know all about it,” Kieran said, “It was one of the areas my Shaman made me study. I always wanted to go there to see the Church of the Four Gods. From the pictures my Shaman showed me, it’s magnificent, but he told me I couldn’t really appreciate it unless I stood exactly in the center of it, looked up and turned around in a circle and then I’d understand why so many paranormals chose to follow that religion. Have you ever been there?”
Unsure if Kieran was trying to expose him, David felt the urge to vanish again and it was only Zane’s hand holding his that kept him there giving him a sense of calmness. “Yes, I have,” he answered, “but I never did that. What happens when you do the circle thing?”
Shrugging his shoulders, Kieran said, “I don’t know. My Shaman never told me that, only that I would find understanding, but that doesn’t matter to me, I just want to see the architecture… Oh macushla, did you ever go there?”
“No, but I agree with you—it’s a stunning piece of workmanship,” answered Logan, “and it’s one of the finest examples of Ancient High Gothic Celestial architecture left on earth.”
“It’s a church for paranormals? I never heard of it. Can humans go there too?” asked Theo.
“Only if they’re mated to a paranormal,” Kieran said.
“You mean a shifter can have a human for a mate? Pooh bear, did you know that?” Theo asked.
“No, I don’t remember learning that in school,” Norman answered.
“My Shaman,” continued Kieran, “told me it was more common a long time ago, but after humans started to hunt shifters—and when shifters began to go underground, so to speak—the gods decreed it should stop. They also forbade any shifter from disclosing the existence of another.”
Dakota then joined in. “Slate told me the original owners of this pub were a wolf shifter and a human and that’s what saved it when the war against the Scottish wolf shifters occurred.”
“Very true,” Ian’s mother, Lili, joined in. “Your parents would bring you here, Ian, whenever they had to visit Edinburgh. Do you remember?”
“So that’s why I had a déjà vu moment downstairs,” Ian chuckled. “I was chalking it up to my pregnancy hormones.”
Smiling, Lili’s husband, Samuel, said, “Remember dear, we would come here every year for our anniversary.”
Lili ducked her head, giggling, as she remembered what they did afterwards, and said, “Of course I do…and I also recall how beautiful the nights were.”
Seeing Ian blush at his mother’s comment, Colton smirked at the thought his mate wasn’t comfortable about his parents reminiscing about their sex life, so he steered the conversation back to the original topic. “If I understand you, Kieran, the Church of the Four Gods is also a religion?” asked Colton.
“Uh-huh. My Shaman told me about it but I wasn’t too impressed at the time because my belief in our gods and the Fates was very strong, but seeing the Church of the Four Gods was always something I wanted to do. Hey, macushla, I have a great idea!”
“Oh, no, here we go again!” groaned Theo.
“What do you mean?” Zane asked.
“Anytime, Ki says he has a great idea, beware,” answered
“P-u-u-leeze, that is so not true,” Kieran said. “I was thinking Logan and I could stop there on our way to Mykonos.”
“Why are you going to Greece?” asked David.
“Oh. My. God. David, you and Zane must come with us since you are newly mated also.”
“What about Slate and me?” asked Dakota. “We’re newly mated too.”
“Absolutely!” cried Kieran. “The more the merrier I’ve always said.”
“Ki, why Greece?” Zane asked.
“It has the very best gay parties with lots of music and dancing, and fabulous theme parties where we can make our own costumes. And then, there are also pool parties with lots and lots of hot sexy men that are about 99% naked.”
“What are they wearing if they are 99% naked?” asked Theo.
“Speedos!” exclaimed Kieran. “Teeny, tiny swim suits that highlight everyone’s assets, if you crotch my drift!” he said, giggling at his play on words.
Theo’s eyes widened then, turning to Norman, he said, “Pooh bear, I want to go there too. Can we, please?”
Norman smirked, he knew exactly why his honeybunch wanted to go. “Sure, if Ki agrees.”
“Oui!” Kieran answered, clapping at the thought of the fun everyone would have.
“Babe, before you buy tickets, I’ll have to check in with Jackson about the work he wants done,” Logan said.
“Oh, I know, macushla,” Kieran said, “I’m just making plans.”
Groaning, Logan murmured, “That’s what concerns me.” Then he lifted his mate onto his lap, nuzzling Kieran’s neck and giving him soft kisses and gentle nips until he got to the mating scar, which he licked.
“Macushla!” Kieran exclaimed, shivering in excitement. “Oh, my gods, that’s what rim…”
Watching Logan place his hand over Kieran’s mouth confused David because, as far as he could tell, Kieran wasn’t doing anything other than talking. Bile rose in him—the sight of physical restraint brought back bad memories of his time with the High Priestess. If the Alpha allows this, I don’t want to be in the Blackwood Pack. Calling forth his ability again, David disappeared, taking Zane with him.
The first book I ever wrote was Dire Warning in 2017 and, much to my delight, it became an Amazon Best Seller. Readers loved it and I was on my way to chronicling the Blackwood Pack, seven brothers who are gay wolf shifters in search of their fated mates– stories about love at first sight with twists and turns, angst and humor, romance and adventure and, of course, happy endings.
Now, six books later, Ghost Walker, another Best Seller, has just been released to critical acclaim. I love the M/M paranormal genre because it gives my imagination a lot of territory in which to roam. My mind can really run wild and come up with some amazing stuff when it doesn’t have to stay inside the box.
My readers tell me they feel like they’re a member of the pack as the stories unfold. As if they’re right there in the middle of the action. Others tell me it’s like watching a fast-paced movie. My writing style pulls no punches– readers love it and are always clamoring for the next book.
Stories come to me as if they were being channeled by my characters, all of whom I love (except for a few villains). They are eager to recount their lives, loves and adventures and are not inhibited when it comes to revealing steamy details.
I currently live in the Northeast and love the beautiful change of seasons, my husband, and our quirky calico cat, though not necessarily in that order. I’m always happy to hear from my readers and can be reached through Facebook, Twitter, MeWe, or my website.

Thank you so much for hosting me on your blog today. Below I have an exciting and exclusive excerpt from Ghost Walker,
Book 6 in the Blackwood Pack series. In this story, Zane unexpectedly
finds his Fated Mate, David, while on vacation but their journey to a
HEA is filled with danger from the past. Luckily, the entire Blackwood
Pack steps in to help save the day.
David entered their bedroom, stopping short when he saw what was on their bed. “Love, I think someone made a mistake.”
at the delectably cute ass of his mate as they walked into their
bedroom, Zane almost bumped into his mate. Looking over
David’s shoulder, Zane chuckled at the number of boxes and shopping bags
piled on their bed. “Ki must have been shopping again and didn’t know
we moved in.”
“He bought all of this?” asked David.
probably stuff for their pup,” Zane said, then turning his head,
called, “Hey Ki, what do you want me to do with your loot?”
“Just a minute,” Kieran yelled from his bedroom. “I’ll be right there.”
“C’mon, babe, let’s gather it up,” Zane said, guiding his mate over to the bed. “Jeez, that man can shop.”
into the room, Kieran grinned at David, “I hope everything is the right
size. I kind of guessed, well not really guessed
because there was a guy shopping who was your exact size so I asked him
if he would help me and he was so nice about it, even finding some stuff
that I missed, if you can believe that, well, I would have, if I had
more time, because everyone else wanted to
get back, but they agreed to help me once they found out I was shopping
for you. Have you looked at anything yet? Do you like it? It was really
fun because Theo, Norm, and Fionn kept offering their opinion about
everything. If you don’t like something, it can
be returned ‘cause I kept all my receipts.”
Blinking his eyes several times, David was stunned when he finally understood what Kieran said. He
bought me clothes? Why?
Oh, this is terrible! I don’t have enough money to pay him back. What
will he think? Maybe I can return everything because he has the
receipts. I hope he won’t be offended if I do that. David glanced at his mate, seeking his help.
was smiling at the mountain of stuff on their bed, mentally pleased
Kieran had done it, especially after helping his mate
pack up his clothes at Morgan’s. It had broken his heart to see his
meager possessions—a few old shirts that someone had mended, a couple
pairs of worn and faded blue jeans and the two black hoodies his mate
had bought to hide his marks. Zane had already decided
a shopping trip was in their near future, but it appeared Kieran had
beaten him to it. Not that he minded because shopping wasn’t something
he enjoyed—at least in person—but online shopping was a whole different
noticing the dismay on David’s face, Zane’s smile faded, wondering what
was causing it. Hoping their mind link was working,
Zane asked, Babe, what’s the problem? You don’t have to keep anything you don’t like.
Startled, his eyes rounded at Zane’s voice in his head, unsure what to do next. Then he heard his mate telling him just to say
what he wanted to but do it in his mind. I can’t pay Kieran back. I
have some money saved but I’m sure it won’t be enough. Do you think he
would be offended if I return everything?
Babe, you know as Fated Mates whatever is mine is also yours, right? And that includes my bank accounts. I—we have more than
enough money to cover all this.
Shaking his head, David said, “Zane, that’s money you earned. I can’t use it.”
between the two of them, Kieran suddenly realized the problem. “All
this,” Kieran said, waving his arm, “Are my gifts
to you, David. I don’t want you to pay me back. It’s the ‘Welcome to the
Blackwood Pack’ shopping trip we all got when we joined the pack.
Actually, I didn’t get you nearly enough but, as I said, the guys were
eager to get back because they wanted to watch
the new Aquaman movie after spending the day with the Loch Ness
Monster. Theo has a real thing for the star, or so I’m told. You don’t
have to worry about money anymore because you’re a Fated Mate and
besides, as a member of the Blackwood Pack, you now
will have a monthly allowance to spend any way you want.” Turning to
Logan, who had joined them, he added, “Right, macushla?”
“Monthly allowance?” David echoed.
Looking at Logan, Zane asked, sarcastically, “Is that right, bro?”
Damn, I should have sorted this out with Cody when he was here but too late for that now.
“That’s right, bro,” said Logan, “according to Cody. I’ll explain it to
you later,” he said, quickly changing the subject. “I see you went
shopping, babe. Show me what you bought.”
Grinning, Kieran began opening up the shopping bags and boxes as he explained. “Well, David has these gorgeous, light, sky blue
eyes so everything I bought will compliment them and his fair complexion.”
tugged David close to him and whispered, “Remember, anything you don’t
like can be returned. I promise you, Ki won’t be offended.”
David’s eyes grew bigger as each piece of clothing was revealed. Never
in his entire life had he seen such gorgeous outfits.
Reaching down, he couldn’t help but rub one of the soft t-shirts between
