Nice to be at Literary Lagniappe today, to introduce my wolf shifters from Diamond Moon, part of Decadent Pub’s multi-author series, Black Hills Wolves.
Darci: “Hi, I’m Darci Diamond. When I was little, my dad used to call me DeeDee. Ross calls me Moonbeam. He says my pale skin reminds him of moonlight.
Ross: ::levels a heated stare at Darci:: Indeed it does, baby. Ross Luparell here. No nickname. Well, Darci calls me some interesting names when we’re intimate. ::grins::
Hair and eye color?
Darci: “My hair is black and short and a bit curly on the ends, styled in a pixie cut. I have green eyes, like my dad.”
Ross: I have brown hair with a lot of red in it. Shoulder length with some layers. My eyes are brown. Darci likens them to milk chocolate.”
Age and occupation?
Darci: “I’m 25 and fresh out of grad school, with a degree in Computer Science.”
Ross: “I love a girl with brains. I’m 29. I own a software company, though I’m currently overseeing some construction projects in Los Lobos. Building homes for the pack members who need them.”
Darci: “He’s being modest. He’s a freaking computer genius. And those homes? They’re gorgeous and he’s paying for all of them.”
Where is home?
Darci: “I was born and raised in Ashland, Oregon. I came to Los Lobos to get some help with my shifting problem.”
Ross: “I’m from Southern Indiana. I returned to Los Lobos to help families in need and make a home here with the Tao pack.”
Darci: “Cheese! I’m a vegetarian shifter.”
Ross: “I’m a carnivore, of course.” ::arches a brow at Darci:: “As it should be. Red meat all the way.”
Darci: ::smiles:: “Well, I have no idea what I say, but Ross definitely goes overboard with the whole Moonbeam deal.”
Ross: “Hey! I resemble that statement. So there you have it: Moonbeam. That’s not likely to change…” ::a sexy growl escapes his throat:: “…Ever.”
Book Blurb – DIAMOND MOON, Black Hills Wolves, a paranormal romance, standalone read:
Human-wolf hybrid Darci Diamond spends every full moon locked in auntie’s basement in Southern Oregon. Her excruciating shifts terrify her, the last one causing her heart to stop beating. Seeking a cure, she journeys to Los Lobos.
Ross Luparell returns to the struggling Tao pack, using his millions made in the tech industry to build homes for pack families in need. He never imagined he would also find his one true mate. But when a hybrid with the biggest green eyes he’s ever seen lands on his doorstep in the middle of a wicked summer storm, there’s no denying it. She’s the one.
She wants a normal human life, free from pain-filled shifts. He won’t give up on her Wolf, and will do whatever it takes to help her accept her true nature. But can he convince her to trust him with her heart?
He reached out with his Wolf senses. The feedback froze his fingers on the doorknob. Female. Damn, she smelled good. Human. Wolf. Wait…both? The copper tang of blood hit his nose. And injured.
He flung open the door. […] The woman startled and fell forward. Catching her, he pulled her inside, kicking the door shut with his foot.
She sagged against him, a shivering bundle of wet woman. Underneath the dampness, her scent drop-kicked his gut. Apples and cinnamon. Roses and honey. His body perked up, taking extreme notice. He fought the growl of possession threatening to tear out of his throat. Holy hell, had his potential mate just walked into his home in the middle of a storm?
