The Persecution of the Wolves Now Available in Print! #SSRTG #LPRTG #ASMSG

Hi everyone,

First of all – Happy New Year! I’m back in the office today after nine days off, so it’s taking me quite a while to get caught up on emails, admin and the like, but I’m getting there! I spent some of those nine days decorating my home office, just a fresh lick of paint and a new carpet, and it’s looking pretty damn good, even if I do say so myself.

So, although 2016 left off with more crappy news (the sad demise of All Romance eBooks – just Google it if you don’t already know and are curious), 2017 has started off well, as the fab folks at Evernight Publishing dropped me a line to let me know that The Persecution of the Wolves is now available in print. How awesome is that?

Here’s a reminder of what it’s all about, followed by the paperback links:

Werewolf brothers Matthew and Isaac have lived in the peaceful village of Eyam, Derbyshire all their lives. The villagers know what happens every full moon, and have their reasons for keeping quiet. But this secrecy comes at a cost—the brothers can’t risk romantic entanglements.

Then, at the full moon, a sheep is slaughtered on Eyam Moor, by what could only be a large animal. Even the brothers’ staunchest supporters begin to have their doubts about who—or what—could have done it.

As the brothers fight to clear their names, things are complicated by unexpected opportunities to indulge their lust. Isaac is intrigued by a handsome newcomer to the village, and a vivacious visitor is happy to offer Matthew her all.

Can the men prove their innocence, or is their centuries-old secret about to be revealed to the outside world, bringing their carefully-crafted existence crashing down around their ears?

Please note: This book has been previously published under the title Pack of Lies. The content remains the same.

EXCERPT

Copyright 2015 Kai Tyler


At the bar, I ordered brandy, swallowed a sip, and then took the curved stairs up to the VIP area. Men sat on dark leather sofas arranged so they overlooked the main jam-packed club area below. I found a single-seater armchair in the corner of the lounge to perch on, my back to the wall.

I never liked sitting in a room with my back exposed. I preferred to see trouble before it found me. Problems were never far away, vacation or not.

From here, I watched male dancers in nothing but jockstraps on raised, caged platforms dotted around the club, sweat and glitter making their toned bodies glisten.

After tossing back the shot, I caught the eye of a young waiter who sauntered over and took my refill order. Waiting for the drink, I took my time to survey the other people in the lounge. A group of three thirty-something-year-old men sat in the section next to mine. Two of them looked like a couple by the way they touched each other.
The third met my gaze and flashed a set of white teeth as he smiled. Arching his brow and lifting his hand, he enquired if he could come over. He was good-looking with dark- brown hair and a well-built body under the t-shirt. Even his trousers seemed to hide a reasonably-sized shaft.

I tried to picture holding the man down, kicking out his legs and taking him over the table. My cock gave an unenthusiastic twitch. I was still too tense to entertain company. With an almost imperceptible shake of my head, I dissuaded him from getting up. The man shrugged and tipped his drink in salute.

The waiter brought my refill. I took a sip and relaxed into the leather chair, welcoming the gentle alcoholic haze in my mind that stripped away my agitation. My gaze trawled, exploring every male form in sight.

Another group of men sat a few sofas away. These were younger than me, too fresh-faced to be nothing more than just barely legal. Boisterous, they talked and laughed in loud voices, drawing attention.

I spotted him and my world skewed.

The boy—he appeared more boy than man—was whispering something to the person sitting next to him, when his blond lashes lifted in a slow, teasing manner.

My heart stopped and my skin prickled. If I wasn’t usually cool under duress, I would’ve been drooling.

The lad was what? Twenty? Twenty-one? Cute as hell in a smart mint-green polo shirt and navy trousers made of expensive shiny fabric that clung to a lean body. He came across as prep-school material and looked young enough to still be in college. Face like a fucking angel, dirty blond hair that flopped over his face, and pink lips that pouted in the way fashion models did.

I had no problem picturing the gioventù on his knees, that mouth stretched around my girth.

As he rose from the sofa, his dark and huge eyes shone with mischief. One of his friends laughed and lowered his head toward the low table, a rolled note in his right hand.

Columns of white powder lined the glass-topped surface and the man leaned over, sniffing half of the line before he straightened and repeated the action with the other nostril. Finally, he tilted his head back, pinching his nose.
My lip curled down, my jaw tightened, and I averted my gaze. The drug remained illegal, but just like homosexuality, it was freely available in Exilado for the right price.

I shouldn’t begrudge the young men their vices any more than I should condemn myself for having sex with other men. Still, I couldn’t help the weight of disappointment that settled on my shoulders. I’d seen the damage addictive drugs could wreck on perfectly normal lives. I’d taken an oath to keep the toxic substances out of Vincenzo territories. San Torino wasn’t my turf and there was nothing I could do other than ignore the young men snorting the white powder.

“Can I buy you a drink?” Blond boy had ambled over and stood only inches away, his lips curled in a ten kilo-watt smile.

My gaze held captivating eyes of dark green. For a moment, I forgot my disgust at what I’d just seen the gioventù’s friend do and simply admired the specimen before me. The flawless skin, the perfect nose, and the slender body of a person on the cusp of manhood made me increasingly aware of my own increasing heart beat.

Damn. He was beautiful. I didn’t think I’d ever described another man with such a word, which reminded me exactly why the lad wasn’t my type. I liked them tougher than he looked. Not delicate. Not someone I had to worry about breaking.

“I’ve got a drink.” I gave a gruff reply and lifted my glass to my lips but I might as well have been drinking water as all my senses honed in on the person in front of me.

Undeterred, the boy lowered his body in the chair opposite and extended his hand. “I’m Carl. It’s a pleasure to meet you.”

I stared at the manicured, slender fingers that didn’t look as if they’d seen a day’s labour, reinforcing the feeling Carl wasn’t for me. It didn’t stop me from picturing them stroking my skin as my cock sprang to life.

“I didn’t invite you to join me.” My tone remained cool, in contrast to the heat riding my blood.

“You didn’t.”

“I’m not interested.”

“I bet I could make you interested.” Carl leaned across and settled his hand on my thigh.

Book Review: Prince Lestat by Anne Rice

Prince LestatPrince Lestat, the latest book in Anne Rice’s epic The Vampire Chronicles series is one hell of a big read – especially in hardback format. But then, it’s telling one hell of a big story. Told from many, many points of view (so don’t rush reading it, or you risk getting lost or confused), Prince Lestat deals with a crisis in the vampire world. Young vampires are being slaughtered all over the world – nests being burned by ancient vampires. But why? It soon transpires that there is a bigger force at play, much bigger than the vampires that must come together and solve this problem before their race is completely wiped out.

I can’t say too much without giving the plot away, but this is a seriously ambitious book. It tells multiple stories from many different perspectives and time periods, then brings it all together in an epic climax. There were times when I did wonder where the narrative was going, what the relevance was to some of the chapters, but I shouldn’t have worried. Rice is a master (or should that be mistress?) storyteller, and she manages to lead the reader on a huge, huge journey, with many characters, twists and turns, yet still leave them having a light bulb moment at the end, where it all comes together. Really, I should have re-read the entire series of books again before coming to this one, but in a way, it didn’t matter. There were enough recaps of relevant parts that I didn’t feel I was missing too much. But it did make me want to refresh my memory, spend more time with characters that are only touched on in this book.

Another compelling addition to the series, I look forward to what comes next.

Character Interview with Isaac from Pack of Lies (@cw1985) #werewolf #paranormal #erotic #romance

Today, I’m interviewing Isaac Adams, and letting him share a little more about himself with you.

 

packoflies01Tell us a little bit about your background.

Yeah, okay. I’m Isaac Adams, and I’m a doctor. I’m from Eyam, in Derbyshire, where I’ve lived all my life. Which is how long, you say? *pauses* oh, okay, you know, do you? Well then, I was born in 1605, so I’ll let you do the maths. I also change into a huge wolf once a month. Besides that, I’m a pretty simple guy.

 

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

That I’m so trusting. Not that trusting people is a bad thing, necessarily, but a lot of things have happened just lately that made me realise that although you think you know a person well enough to trust them, it’s not necessarily true. I’m learning to be more cautious, more guarded.

 

What first attracted you to your love interest?

His eyes. The most amazing green I’ve ever seen. *awkward silence* I have nothing more to say on this subject.

 

What’s the best bit about the book your author wrote about you?

All the parts where I was having a wonderful time.

 

What’s the worst bit about the book your author wrote about you?

All the parts where I wasn’t having a wonderful time.

 

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?

Right here, exactly where you left me. Oh, you want more detail? Can’t a guy have his privacy? Apparently not. Well, I’d like to see myself happy. I don’t think that’s too much to ask.

*****

Pack of LiesBlurb:

Werewolf brothers Matthew and Isaac have lived in the peaceful village of Eyam all their lives. The villagers know what happens every full moon, and are happy to keep their secret. But their privacy comes at a cost—neither brother has taken a lover in almost four hundred years.

Then at the full moon, a sheep is slaughtered on Eyam Moor, by what could only be an animal. A large, vicious animal. Even the brothers’ staunchest supporters begin to have their doubts. Meanwhile Isaac is smitten by a handsome newcomer to the village, while a vivacious visitor is happy to offer Matthew her all.

As they indulge their lust, they must clear their names and convince their neighbours that they aren’t also letting their baser instincts out to play.

Inside Scoop:  This book contains sizzling scenes of both M/M and M/F sex.

Character Interview with Matthew from Pack of Lies (@cw1985) #werewolf #paranormal #erotic #romance

Today, I’m interviewing Matthew Adams, and letting him share a little more about himself with you.

 

Tell us a little bit about your background.

Given I’m over four hundred years old, I’ll have to keep it brief, otherwise we could be here a very long time. I trust this is all in complete confidence, yes? If not, then please ignore the part about my age. Okay, well, as long you’re sure.

My name is Matthew Adams and I’m a werewolf. I was born in 1600, and have lived in Eyam for all of my very long life. I love it, and can’t imagine living anywhere else. I’ve had a variety of jobs, including as a policeman, which I did for a very long time. I’ve also fought in more wars than I care to remember. I’m quite happy now working in the local pub and doing odd jobs in the village—sort of a semi-retirement.

 

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

Don’t tell Isaac I said this, because he’ll laugh and won’t believe me. But I’d probably change my quick temper. It’s silly for someone who’s been around as long as me, but I do anger quite quickly, especially if someone I care about is involved.

 

What first attracted you to your love interest?

I know this is going to sound really shallow, but to start with it was her looks. I first saw her in the local pub and thought she was gorgeous. As soon as I started speaking to her, though, I quickly realised that there was a lot more to her than being pretty.

 

What’s the best bit about the book your author wrote about you?

Would it be really bad if I said my sex scenes? It would? Oh, okay. Well then, I’d have to say the way she’s portrayed the village I’ve lived all my life.

 

What’s the worst bit about the book your author wrote about you?

I can’t really say, because it’ll give away a major part of the plot, and Lucy will throttle me. She may be a lot smaller than me, but she can be scary!

 

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?

Still living in the village, of course, but hopefully settled down with a wonderful woman and an interesting future to look forward to.

Casting My Characters for Pack of Lies (@cw1985) #werewolf #paranormal #erotic #romance

packoflies02Hi everyone,

Casting my characters in my own mind isn’t something I always do. As well as novels, I write a lot of short stories and novellas, so it’s not always necessary. Sometimes I don’t spend enough time with characters to build up an image of what they look like—it’s more about what they do.

However, for Pack of Lies, I knew all along it was going to be a book with a large word count, so I needed to keep a good grasp on my characters to make sure I didn’t end up with any inconsistencies. Also, I feel if I have a really good feel for what my characters look like and behave like, then my readers will too, and it’ll hopefully make the story so much more real.

It didn’t take long for me to work out who I’d have playing my sexy werewolf boys if the novel ever got made into a film (ahh, a girl can dream!). The delectable Hugh Jackman would be perfect for Matthew Adams, the older werewolf brother. He’s big, can look menacing, and yet is gorgeous and women would certainly enjoy looking at him.

Taylor Kitsch would be ideal for the younger werewolf brother, Isaac Adams. He’s handsome and has a more playful vibe about him. I’ve since seen him play a gay character in The Normal Heart so that’s just perfect—he can definitely “act” gay, if you see what I mean!

Strangely, I didn’t have an actress in mind for Matthew’s love interest, Sally. Perhaps it’s because I like my male eye candy better!

Isaac’s love interest, Nathaniel, is a character I also cast in my mind. Aussie actor Daniel Feurriegel would play Nathaniel. He played a gay character in Spartacus, so I know he can also “act” gay very successfully, and damn, I think they’d look good together 😉

I haven’t mentally cast any of the more minor characters, so I’ll leave that up to the film studio 😉
