Spank Bank

And now for another installment of...drumroll please...Saturday Spankings! My excerpt is from my paranormal shifter book, Hair of the Dog. I took some liberties with the 7-8 sentences allowed because I had some shorties.
.
Excerpt:
The word "stop" stuck in his throat, right behind "don’t" and "no". When the words bubbled from his mouth, they spilled out in a jumble. "No. Don’t. Stop," he said between heaving breaths.

"No," she purred. "I won’t." Her nails raked the length of his torso.

Grant recoiled from the painful pleasure. Ivy’s body writhed against him, her taut nipples pressing into his flesh, her leg twining with his like she might climb him. He fought the impulse to dig his fingers into the softness of her hips and breasts, same as he fought the prickly head-to-toe heat. His hair and nails itched and ached from the urge to shift.

  

 
Blurb:

When Grant, mayor of Mystic Springs, asks Ivy to run the Mystic Springs resort, she’s so thrilled, she accepts the job without so much as visiting the town first. Then she arrives and meets Grant—and her goals change. She got her dream job, and now she wants Grant…preferably at her mercy in the bedroom. 

Grant’s inner animal is desperate to take Ivy. And he’s not joking about the “animal” part—Grant and most of the Mystic Springs residents are shifters. The spring is more than a landmark, it’s the touchstone that grounds their powers and keeps them on the human side of the shifter spectrum. But the spring is running dry… 

The townspeople are convinced Ivy is the woman who was prophesied to rejuvenate the spring. Local legend is rife with rumors of sex rites that might help, and Grant’s only too happy to give them a go. He just has to convince Ivy that he’s the man—er, wolf?—for her.


 
I'm excited to announce that Hair of the Dog is a National Excellence in Romance Fiction Awards finalist. Wish me luck!

  1. Okay, I will admit, werewolves aren't my favorite creatures, but this sounds REALLY good. Especially the part about the whole town being shifters. Adding it to my TBR list:)

    1. It's not your typical werewolf story.

  2. As corny as it probably sounds, this made me think of the song "Stop! In the name of love". Congratulations on your book's success! I hope more will follow.

    1. It's funny how one little snippet can trigger memories. But that would be weird if Grant broke out into song like they do on Glee.

  3. I love shapeshifters, and the premise of your book sounds like something I would really enjoy. Like Thianna, I'm adding it to me TBR list right now. Thanks for sharing, Kelli.
