Jungle Salvation, The Jaguar Queens Book II by MA Jewell

Genre: Paranormal romantic suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Jaguar shifter males lost in their cats are all animal, feral. Execution is the only course. Enforcer Matteo D’Cruz has terminated two and doesn’t care that he’s next–until Dakota.

Dragged back into the human world by well-meaning friends, jaguar shifter Matteo D’Cruz realizes he’s been in cat form for over seventy years. With another transformation, he could lose his tenuous hold on his humanity. In their world, the only end for a feral is execution. Damaged by grief and guilt, he doesn’t care overmuch. However, when he discovers an unmated latent female, he can’t resist her scintillating allure or his instinct to protect her at all costs.

Carefree Dakota Gorman travels to Brazil to rescue her sister. Determined to expose the drug lords who have manipulated her sibling into a hurried wedding, she’s certain the baffling hottie Matteo is one of them. After Dakota’s sister turns into a giant jaguar before her eyes, she must confront a new reality, one including latent family traits.

Matteo helps her trigger her first exhilarating metamorphosis into a jaguar, leaving no doubt about her genetics, but unknown shifter enemies cut short her joy.

A blackmailer sends Matteo a video of her transformation, demanding DNA samples. The extortionist threatens to post the recording to the internet and expose the shifters to the world. Dredging up courage that she didn’t know she possessed, Dakota joins Matteo and the other jag shifters to save her family–and her new species–from scientific experimentation.

Stressing Matteo D’Cruz

Every hero has a story. He has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a hero and get to know him better, by focusing on how he handles being relaxed, as well as how he handles stress.

Please tell me about your hero.

Age: 133
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Brazilian Amazon Jungle,
Profession: Enforcer (Shifter code enforcement), Coffee
Ethnicity: Brazilian Culture; Mixed indigenous tribal and European appearance
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Jaguar Shifter

What does your hero look like?

After living as a jaguar in the Amazon for a few decades too long, Matteo has a unique appearance. Natural, tawny dreadlocks followed him into his six-foot plus human form, along with rich copper eyes and a V-shaped pattern of ochre rosettes down his back. When he’s enraged, he snarls, ensuring his adversary gets a glimpse of a great-cat canine.

Who is the significant other in his life?

Brilliant adrenalin junkie Dakota Gorman is bold, courageous, and protective of the weak and family, yet others see her as a carefree fashionista with an irresponsible streak. With two partially completed bachelors, and an abandoned medical degree to her credit, some even call her flighty. Discovering her true inner strength rocks Matteo to his core.

The Hero’s Relaxed Side

This hero is at a party. Considering his story, describe the party.

Any shifter party is a danger zone. Jag males are solitary and territorial, and since the females died out over seventy years ago, most have never even seen an unmated queen. The discovery of the latent females in the United States invigorates the all-male clan with hope for the future. Now, however, their mixed gatherings are powder kegs with a flame licking at the fuse.

Matteo has two roles. As a guest, he would travel from table to table, exchanging arm clasps and man hugs with the older males and fist bumps with the young ones. However, no one at the party would mistake his congenial manner for relaxed.

How does the hero feel about being this particular party, and what body language is he displaying that gives it away?

Matteo had thought a gathering of mixed company a thing of the past. So when viewing a room filled with male and female jag shifters flirting and getting to know one another, a sense of awe and hope for the future often strikes him. Enough to make him clear his throat to cover the emotion.

Since he retains a keen jaguar sense of smell while in his human form, scents have an impact on him. Dakota’s alluring fragrance tortures him. Cat instinct to claim the formidable female often sends a shift’s heat racing over his skin. Seeking relief, he’ll rub at his nose, though it’s a wasted motion.

Is he more likely to mingle or remain aloof?

Matteo always resists a desire to find a solitary table. Because he must keep the peace, he makes frequent stops to greet young males flirting with the fair-skinned latents.

 

If he drinks, what is his drink of choice at this party?

With a high need for carbs in human form, Matteo prefers fruit juice, specifically acai juice. Few drugs have any effect on shifters, and alcohol’s taste doesn’t appeal, but he’d thought he might enjoy the fun buzz reported by humans.

How much drink is his usual?

After shifting from cat to human, a need for carbs is impossible to ignore. A pitcher of fruity juice is not out of the question. However, if pastry is near, he prefers coffee.

The hero figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?

As the Enforcer, Matteo will search any secluded areas regularly. In this particular party, the females don’t yet know they are cats and are uninformed about the risks of an accidental mating. Any male who takes advantage of a naïve queen will answer to the Enforcer.

Is he likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is he the friend that others latch onto?

Matteo has few close friends, and he values those males as brothers. These older males, the ancients, will coordinate security between them, following Matteo’s lead. No one “latches on” to him. He’s too intimidating to most jag males.

If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the hero going to handle it?

Any male who picks a fight with Matteo is likely driven by cat instinct rather than any logical thought. He’d employ a submission hold and pin the impaired male with a dominant glare until the shifter came to his senses.

Is the hero the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?

See above.

Will he know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of himself?

If Matteo manages security at the party, he would not concern himself with sensitivities or perceptions. However, in a truly social setting, he will leave as early as politely possible.

The Hero’s Stressed Out Side

How does the hero handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls him aside when he was blameless in a situation?

Those few with authority over Matteo must earn his respect, and even then, if their logic is flawed, he will push back.

How does the hero react to hearing a scream?

Having a naturally protective nature, he’d investigate.

If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses his mind?

Likely due to his roots in the previous century, and assuming the attacker is male, his initial reaction will depend on the victim’s gender. If male, Matteo wonders if the man deserves the beating. If female, he calculates how to intervene.

If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing he does?

Regardless of the victim’s gender, he will stop the assault to determine the facts, and after he’s satisfied his curiosity, he’s not above allowing a deserved punishment to continue.

This hero attempts to rescue someone and realizes that he is in over his head. The odds are against him and there is no way out. He is going to get his butt handed to him. What does he do?

Having a military background, he views retreat as a strategy to win a war or to minimize casualties. That said if a shifter female is involved, all bets are off. No sacrifice is too high to save a single queen.

The hero runs into the one person from his past he wanted to avoid. He can’t get out of the situation and must interact in some way. What does he do?

He’d ignore the person with overt disdain, and if forced to interact, things will go poorly for any individual who has previously disappointed Matteo.

Someone younger than the hero is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the hero deal with it?

Despite his hardened nature, Matteo encourages young ones to challenge themselves, to become more than they are. He’d counsel the younger shifter in the moment, however, depending on the stakes; he’s also comfortable taking matters into his own hands.

The hero is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does he tell himself in order to get through the situation?

He focuses on his main objective, the endgame goal. And if an enemy caused this pain, he plots his revenge.

What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?

“If you’d thought of any but yourself these last seventy years…”

What lesson from his past gets him through a stressful situation?

Matteo endured decades of grief for a lost mate. He will spare Dakota that pain. (No more spoiler on that one lol)

What one thing would you like readers to know about your hero?

He’s an educated savage with a gentleman’s heart.

Mink Omega in Hiding by Jessica E Subject

Genre MPreg Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Roan is looking for a way out…
As a mink shifter omega, I never thought I’d escape the soul-crushing, gang-ruled world I lived in. But, one night on my way home from working at the strip club, the opportunity arose. I needed to find a place to hide, somewhere I could go where no one from this life would ever find me. Someplace I could start over. With my parents deceased, I only had one person from my past I could ask for help. But would he want to see me again?

Hansol has everything in his life, except his mate…
After two years of running a successful fitness center with celebrities as my personal clients and friends, one would think I had everything I’ve ever wanted. But I don’t. The one thing I still desire is to have my mate by my side. Something my sun bear keeps reminding me of every day. Sure, I’ve had plenty of omegas and other alphas in my bed, but no one I want to wake up with each morning. That person left my life years ago with no explanation and no goodbye.

Will they find their way back to each other?
Then Roan shows up on my doorstep, soaking wet, and with no belongings. Of course, I take him in. But I don’t know how long I have until he leaves again. Can I trust him this time? Can I finally claim him as my mate? Or am I holding onto false hope? Because I know there is something he is keeping from me.

Know the Hero from Mink Omega in Hiding

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

Sleep. He runs his own business. If he’s not at work or doing paperwork at home, he’s most likely sleeping to prepare for another early morning.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

He eats only clean, healthy foods, but when none of his clients are around, he will buy red bean cake from NJ Fresh Foods.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Moisture wiking or cotton clothes with running shoes for at the gym. And when he’s at home, he wears as little as possible.

Does he know how to fix things?

Yes, but he knows it’s faster to hire someone else.

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

He hired a new employee for his gym. Due to his high profile clients, he checked the employees social media and ran a background check before hiring them. Everything seemed okay. But, he didn’t know the person ran a fan account, and was stalking one of his celebrity clients. That person was fired as soon as the pictures were leaked online.

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

He tries to avoid them. But, he’s a big softy when it comes to children he knows.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

A bear. Literally and figuratively. After his protein shake, the drive into work, and a solo workout, he’s much more personable.

How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?

Pretty much everyone in Saramto is a shifter of some sort. So, he really doesn’t have to act any different.

Will he let a worker handle things or do it himself?

He’s too busy to do everything himself. He’s learned to delegate since he started his business. Though if someone is sick, he knows how to work every single position in his gym.

A Mermaid’s Wish by Lyncee Shillard

Genre paranormal romance suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Aislynn is a mermaid who has watched humans from afar for thousands of years. A negotiator for Neptune, she wonders, what it would be like to feel anything but especially passion the way humans do when they have sex. The truth is mermaids can’t feel emotions of any kind and hot sex is one of those experiences she wishes for. When the opportunity to become a human – temporarily – presents itself, she takes it.
Finley McCormock is a hard-core, tough as nails divorce attorney who represents rich women leaving their husbands. He has no time to do pro-bono environmental work like his colleagues or to fall in love himself. Why bother? He knows how marriages end. But, his new housekeeper, as odd as she is, gives him a hard on he has to take care of. The good news is Aislynn seems more than happy to oblige. She is his sexual fantasy come true, from the mid-day office visit that includes a spanking session to the trip to Trinker’s Sex Toys. Aislynn is willing to try anything.
But, when Aislynn’s past catches up with her, Finley will have to decide if his attraction for Aislynn goes further than the surface of the water. Does he really want to get in deep with his mermaid?

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Watch TV – in Atlantis there is no television. She’s sort of addicted to Chopped ;-)
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Doughnuts.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Actually, the one thing she doesn’t like about being human is wearing clothes
Does she know how to fix things?
Nope. She’s not even sure what some things are :-D
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Her goal is to experience all human emotions – mermaids are void of emotions – so she kisses a random stranger. It doesn’t go well. She tells him he isn’t good at kissing because wanted to moan and no moaning happened but thanks him for sharing the emotion of disappointment with her.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Goes for a swim.
Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?
She’s about trying various kinds. While, Atlantis has coffee but just plain. She loves flavors especially hazelnut.

Meet Yann from A Merman's Choice by Alice Renaud @alicerauthor #RLFblog #paranormalromanceWelcome Yann from A Merman’s Choice, the new Fantasy Romance novella by Alice Renaud.

Meet Yann Benetynn

Age: 23
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Benetynn, one of the Morvann Islands, off the coast of West Wales (UK)
Profession: Nature warden. Sometimes also ferries tourists to and from the islands, on his boat Gwilan.
Ethnicity: In human shape, white
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Shape-shifting merman.
Please provide a physical description of the character.
In his merman, or aquatic, shape, Yann has dark grey skin and webbed hands and feet. Oh, and a foot-long, flexible tail. But not a fish tail! Mermen are one hundred per cent hot-blooded mammals. In human shape he’s a big, muscular guy. He has a young, handsome face, with a straight nose and square chin, crowned by a mop of glossy chestnut curls. He also has striking emerald-green eyes.
Please tell us a little about your character.
Yann is caring, kind, loyal and brave. He defies the laws of his Clan to save humans from drowning. His love for Alex brings him in conflict with his people, but he risks all to protect her. In the end he realizes that his own happiness matters, and he sacrifices his right to lead his Clan in order to marry Alex. A big guy, with a big heart!
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
His human love interest, Alex. She’s the light of his life.
What special skills does your character rely on?
Yann is a shape shifting merman, he can move between the human world and the sea world. In aquatic shape, he can talk to sea mammals, taste every current through the membranes of his nose, and hear the song of a humpback whale from a hundred miles away. He can swim as well as any dolphin, and stay underwater for as long as a pilot whale. Like them he uses echolocation to orientate himself, and communicate at a distance with other mermen. He can also compose songs, in the mermen language of musical clicks and whistles. In human shape he’s a great sailor, and a fantastic swimmer.
What does he have a knack for doing?
He has a knack for annoying other mermen by spending too much time with humans, and in human shape. Also he keeps rescuing humans – even when doing so risks revealing his true nature. The mermen live incognito alongside humans and won’t allow any human to know the truth about them.
What is your character’s family like?
Yann lost his mother when he was young. He was brought up by his father, Bryn. Bryn is caring, but stern. He expects Yann to follow in his footsteps and become leader after him. That means he has to behave like a proper merman, and marry a nice mermaid who can help him lead the Benetynn Clan.
What past event causes your character the most fear?
Yann’s mum died whilst rescuing a human swimmer who had got into difficulty. When Yann was 12, another swimmer got into trouble near his island. He wanted to save her, but his father wouldn’t let him, for fear Yann would die too – or reveal his true nature to a human. Yann had to watch the woman die, knowing he could have saved her. After that, he promised himself that he would never again let a human drown. His biggest fear is breaking that promise. He will risk his own life, and his Clan’s anger, to rescue humans.
If your character could make any one thing happen, what would it be?
Yann would love mermen to live openly among humans, so he’d no longer have to hide his true self. In the distant past, mermen and humans lived side by side and intermarried, but centuries ago mermen decided to stay away from humans as much as possible and keep themselves to themselves. It’s a source of regret for Yann. He thinks that his people’s secrecy comes at a heavy price.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.
Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?
I guess I have a pretty unusual story. I’m the first merman in centuries to marry a human. My writer loves Wales and Brittany, and their legends, so she’s always been drawn to the stories of us mermen and our world.
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
I think she loves to escape from her everyday life and spend time with us. We have exciting tales to tell, and it’s more fun for her than working in an office, I guess.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
I know she’s already written about my mate Rob, and his spunky girlfriend Charlie, so I’d like her to write a book about my best friend, Caltha. She’s been really helpful to me and Alex, so it would be great if she too could find love. Though I’m not sure what kind of man would be man enough for Caltha. She’s one feisty mermaid, and she’s devoted to the Clans. It would take magic to convince her to let her hair down a little, and allow herself to be loved and cared for.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?
Thanks for giving me such a lovely wife. I wish you hadn’t made it so hard! But hey, it’s all good now.

Where to buy A Merman’s Choice by Alice Renaud

For centuries the shape-shifting mermen of the Morvann Islands have lived incognito among humans. But one of them, Yann, has developed some bad habits. Like rescuing humans, even when doing so risks revealing his true nature. When he fishes Alex out of the sea, he doesn’t expect her to reappear eight months later, and turn his life upside down by asking him to be her guide.
Alex is determined to fulfil a promise to her dying grandmother, by gathering pictures and stories of the Morvanns. But she soon discovers that, on these remote Welsh islands, legends have a habit of becoming true!
Over the course of a few days, Yann and Alex grow close. But some mermen hate humans. Their hostility, and Yann’s secret, threaten to tear the couple apart just as they are discovering that they are soul mates. Can Yann overcome the obstacles in his path and make the right choice?

Alice was born and brought up in Brittany, Western France, her father was French and her mother British (from Wales). She moved to London, UK, in 1997, where she now lives with her husband and son. She works full time as a compliance specialist in a pharmaceutical company. She has been writing in her free time since she was 14. She got quite a few short stories published in UK magazines, before moving to longer fiction. She wrote three contemporary romance books, but didn’t find a publisher for them. She then realized that mermen, sea witches, and time travelling warlocks were a lot more fun than sheikhs and billionaires! Her first two paranormal romances did not find a publisher either, then she wrote A Merman’s Choice, which was published in January this year by Black Velvet Seductions. It is the first book in the Sea of Love series, a fantasy romance trilogy inspired by the landscapes and legends of Brittany and Wales. The second book in the series, Music for a Merman, will be out later this year. She loves reading and writing stories, and sharing them with anyone who’s interested!

Know the Heroine from Bear of the Midnight Sun

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Miranda prefers a quiet kind of life, so she picks up a book and reads. Or takes a nap. Naps are good.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Ice cream. Who doesn’t like ice cream?
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Comfortable, tailored clothing, like jeans and a button-down shirt or soft sweater.
Does she know how to fix things?
Miranda’s mother prizes independence above all things, and insisted she learn how to perform basic household repairs. As a woman living alone, she sees the sense in having that kind of practical knowledge. She mows her own yard, too, although gardening doesn’t float her boat.
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Miranda would love to be a gourmet cook, but hasn’t got the knack. For a small dinner party, she once attempted a soufflé from a venerable French recipe. She followed the instructions to the letter, but it somehow managed explode. Soufflés collapse, but they don’t explode. Except hers did. She ordered pizza delivery instead, and, after the party, spent three hours cleaning out the burned splatter from her oven. She vowed never to attempt anything like that again.
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
Miranda is uncomfortable about children, having never really interacted with them since she was a child herself. In fear of saying the wrong thing, she holds herself aloof to observe them.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Miranda’s ambivalent about mornings, although her cat Gonzo ensures she rises at the proper hour to ensure he receives his breakfast. She prefers to take her mornings with a cup or two of her favorite caffeinated beverage.
How does she act around people who don’t know what she is?
Like many authors, Miranda’s an introvert and reserved. Definitely not the life of the party, she’ll join the other wallflowers to watch and listen to the other guests.
Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?
Having grown up the daughter of a fiercely independent mother, Miranda learned to handle her own problems. In Bear of the Midnight Sun, she learns that she can’t necessarily handle her own problems and that needing help doesn’t necessarily imply weakness.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
She has no tattoos or body piercings, although she does have pierced ears and prefers more delicate earrings that enhance rather than make a bold statement. With her mother, a lawyer who chews razor wire for breakfast, Miranda’s tastes toward bodily embellishment tend to be conservative.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
Personal vehicle, definitely. In small town and rural America, public transport often doesn’t exist. A privately owned car or truck is necessary.
Recycle or toss?
Miranda will recycle, as long as it’s not too inconvenient or costly. Having had an irregular income for most of her adult life, she measures cost against environmental responsibility carefully before making a purchase. Convenience is definitely a factor in her decisions to recycle, repurpose, or reuse.
