Spotlight: Laird Wolf - Vivian Arend (Extract + 2 Giveaways!)

As a huge fan of Vivian Arend's I'm excited to be taking part in the blog tour to celebrate the release of Laird Wolf, the latest novella in her Takhini Shifters series. This story can be read as a stand alone but people who are familiar with the series will recognise the main couple from their previous appearances. I always love reading Viv's books, she's great at writing light hearted, sexy romances and Laird Wolf is such a fun story. I'll be posting my full review later today so make sure you check back to read it. In the meantime I have a bit more information about the book, a fab excerpt and a couple of brilliant giveaways for you to enter.

He’s a wolf in a kilt. That pretty much says it all…

Pulling off a rescue mission at a remote castle in Scotland should be an easy task for lone wolf Damon Black. He’ll flash some muscle, show a little Alpha power, and do whatever it takes to ease Addie MacShay’s fears. But the woman who throws herself into his arms and cries boyfriend is more intriguing than anticipated. The sexy she-wolf’s got more curves, more tantalizing scent, more of everything he desires.

Addie’s job cataloguing an estate at the Sterling-Wylde Manor is complicated by the ongoing discovery of new wills and the two creepy heirs who won’t leave her alone. But her fake boyfriend turns out to be a far greater threat—not only is he fun and flirtatious, he looks delicious in a kilt. She craves his touch, but with her empathic skills on overdrive, touch is the last thing she needs.

Damon’s fighting his unruly inner beast. Addie’s fighting their incredible sexual pull. They’ll both have to lower their guard to make this more than a Highland fling.

About the Author:
Vivian Arend in one word: Adventurous. In a sentence: Willing to try just about anything once. That wide-eyed attitude has taken her around North America, through parts of Europe, and into Central and South America, often with no running water.

Her optimistic outlook also meant that when challenged to write a book, she gave it a shot, and discovered creating worlds to play in was nearly as addictive as traveling the real one. Now a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of both contemporary and paranormal stories, Vivian continues to explore, write and otherwise keep herself well entertained.



He laid a hand on her shoulder, tugging her to face him. “You interested in an experiment?”

Heat radiated from where his hand rested, but nothing untoward happened on an emotional level.

“Does it involve wandering the halls searching for cold spots where the damned still cling to the earthly place of their untimely demises?”

Damon grinned. “That’s on tomorrow’s agenda. Tonight I thought maybe…”

He slid his thumb back and forth, stroking over her shirt. He might as well have used a Taser on her; the electric response of her nerve endings was off the charts.

“You’re…touching me.”

“Over your clothes.” Concern and restrained passion slipped around her like a protective cocoon.

“Any negative reactions?”

“Other than my mouth has gone dry and my heart is pumping fast enough to drive a motorboat, no reactions at all,” she offered drolly.

He hummed in approval, his gaze following his hand as he trailed his fingers down the front of her T-shirt. Caressing the curve of her breast, slowing as his fingertips slipped over the tight tip of her nipple. “You said there was a connection between us. There’s one hell of an attraction, for sure.”

Addie groaned as he pinched, arching into his touch as he opened his palm and cupped her. “That feels amazing, but we can’t… I mean, I feel guilty.”

Damon chuckled as he leaned down and pressed his lips to the upper slope of her breast. “Guilty because we’re going to fool around?”

“I can’t touch you,” she complained. “Except over your clothes.”

“Maybe, maybe not, but why are you rushing?” Damon slipped off the couch and between her legs, pushing them apart so he could kneel in front of her. “Focus on the experiment. Put your hands on my shoulders and keep them there.”
