Mystic Wolves, Book 3
A WILD WOLF, A SEXY AS SIN SHIFTER, AND A BOND THEY
COULDN’T DENY. Will Jett and Taryn be able to get their happily
ever after, or will it be destroyed by their enemy?
A WILD WOLF…Taryn yearned for the freedom to find a place where she belonged. A
place where she was loved and could love without fear. The first time she saw Jett, her heart and
mind knew he was the one for her.
A SEXY AS SIN SHIFTER…Jett nearly lost his place in the Mystic Wolves because
of one wild wolf. Now, she’s saved his life, and his wolf wants her for their own. Can he trust
her not to betray them all?
A BOND THEY COULDN’T DENY…Taryn and Jett fight the attraction they’ve
felt simmering between them, until danger almost takes what is most precious away… an
unyielding love they’d never thought they deserved to have.
Q and A with Elle Boon
Welcome Elle and thanks for being here today. Let’s get started.
Please tell us a bit about your current book…
My latest book is Jett’s Wild Wolf, Mystic Wolves 3. This book is not for the faint of heart. It starts off with a bang. The heroine is the daughter of the bad guy, and he is evil incarnate. Taryn has lusted after Jett for a long time, but knew he’d never want her because of who and what she was. But, circumstances throws them together, and it’s only because of her that he is attacked, and then because she has the ability to heal him, they form a bond.
Jett doesn’t trust Taryn, but he wants her more than he’s ever wanted anyone in his life. He plans to work her out of his system, and then find out what he can to destroy her father, even if it means destroying her.
Will these two be able to work through their trust issues, or will the evil from both their pasts rip them apart before they can find their happily ever after?
Who was your favorite character to write and why?
I love my character Zeus from my Ravens of War. He is such an alpha, yet he’s funny, charming, and loves his mate. I truly love him. I also love Nolan from my Mystic Wolves. He’s a little boy and will steal your heart
What’s your favorite genre to write?
Hands down paranormal. I think it’s because I like making shit up.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
I really want to go to Italy. I love Italian food, so I know I won’t starve. It’s beautiful and I would love to soak in all things Italian… yes, the men are pretty awesome, too.
Taryn made her way through the throng of people. Bike week in full swing at Sturgis made
it easy for her to blend into the crowd at the largest biker’s bar in town. She loved the anonymity
that came with the thousands of people who flooded the small town each year.
The music throbbed a sexy beat, reminding her of the last time she’d been in Chaps, surely a
stupid move, but a girl was allowed to be stupid every once in a while. As she got closer to the
stage where the band was playing, women were more than half naked, screaming like a bunch of
banshees. Taryn looked over her shoulder at the ladies she’d come with, making sure they were
keeping up with her.
“We are so not taking our tops off, Taryn,” Darian yelled in her ear.
A snort escaped Taryn. She’d met Darian and her motley group of friends a few weeks back
at the library studying for exams. When they’d noticed Taryn sitting alone on a nightly basis, the
women had decided she needed rescuing. Now, she led them to the front, knowing if they needed
rescuing she’d be the one to save their asses.
She looked at the outfits each woman had on, then at her own daring ensemble. Yeah, none
of them had much to take off, yet they all had on more than the women at the front of the stage.
“Get your asses up here ladies, and don’t puss out on me,” Taryn yelled, dragging Jenna and
Kylie along. The band ended one song, only to start another.
Unable to get to the front, she and her friends moved to the side where a dance floor
afforded them a view, but also allowed them the chance to get their groove on as Kylie loved to
say. When she saw the way the girl started bopping to the music without a care, she joined her. A
raucous round of giggling ensued, and then all four were dancing.
Taryn didn’t notice they were drawing attention as they danced to song after song, letting
the beat carry her away. She loved music, could lose herself in the rhythm for hours. Looking up
toward the stage, her eyes met the dark orbs of the one man sure to set her body aflame. He
stared at her while he twirled the drumsticks in both hands, never missing a beat. His lips moved,
singing along to the song, every now and again she could see the piercing on his extremely long
She licked her lips, his eyes seemed to follow the movement, narrowing as a guy bumped
into her back. His black eyes flared, the eyes of his wolf apparent.
Panic made her stumble into Darian. “Excuse me ladies. I need a drink. Be right back.”
She didn’t wait around for them to say anything. Her fight or flight instinct kicking in like
prey caught in a predator’s sight. Not that she thought Jett of the Mystic Pack even knew who
she was. With all the people crowding the bar, there was no way her scent could reach him, she
assured herself. Standing in line to get a drink she got her nerves under control.
After ordering four bottles of beer she made her way back to the dance floor. A DJ had
started playing, giving the band a short break. Taryn handed each lady their drink, accepting their
thanks with a smile. Not seeing the band, or the wolf, she decided she would not think of by
name, Taryn sat her empty bottle of beer on the closest table.
“Oh, who knows how to do this line dance?” she asked. The song playing was an old one
that was sure to get everyone up and dancing. Jenna jumped up and down, grabbing her hand as
they shoved their way to the middle of the sawdust dance floor right in front of the stage.
They whooped and hollered along with the crowd, shaking their asses in miniscule denim
skirts and cowgirl boots. Where Jenna was a little more covered with her boyish figure, Taryn
drew more stares with her voluptuous curves, purple hair and tattoos. She color coordinated her
black and purple tank to match her hair and topped it off with her favorite black boots with
purple snakeskins. She didn’t have a lot of money, but she knew how to buy things on sale.
Shimmying to the beat, they took it down low, slapping the floor with the palm of her hand,
she laughed at the look on Darian’s face as she made sure her knees were held together. No way
in hell was she going to flash her panties to the crowd of onlookers.
“Why didn’t you beotchs join us?” Jenna asked.
Kylie began doing what was known as the peepee dance. “Who’s going to the bathroom
Taryn didn’t like the thought of being left alone, and just the mention of the bathroom had
her bladder waking up. “Let’s go. You know what they say though. Once you break the seal.”
They laughed as they weaved their way toward the ladies room.
About the Author:
I’m a wife and mother who is a retired stay at home mom of 2. I say retired because my youngest
is 14 and my oldest is 20. When my baby went to school, reading saved my sanity, and then the same
year he started school, I was diagnosed with Cancer, again reading saved my sanity. When I
recovered and realized how quickly life could change, I made a bucket list. The number one thing was to live.
Check. On top of that list was to become a published author. Check. Eight years later I have accomplished
that goal and several others.
I live in the Midwest, but I”m a southern girl with only a slight twang who says y’all quite frequently, and am
known to say “Bless Your Heart” A LOT. If you know what that means, you do not want to be the one I say
that to, lol. I cuss worse than if a trucker and a sailor were put together, but I do it with class.
I write what I love to read, erotic romance. My books are definitely full of lots of story, but I leave nothing to the
imagination in or out of the bedroom. My hope is that after readers have read one of my stories, they fall in love with the
characters as much as I have. The best part of my new journey is that I get to create new worlds, and have all kinds of stories in my head just waiting to be written. I truly love to hear from readers. You can find me on Twitter, Facebook or my webside, but I’m on Facebook ALL the
time, so find me. I’d love to hear from you!!!
From the author of the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Hard Ink Series, comes a special announcement sure to excite readers everywhere! Don’t miss what Laura Kaye has to say…
A Hard Ink Special Announcement from Laura Kaye!
As I celebrate the release last week of Hard to Let Go, the finale in my Hard Ink romantic suspense series, I’m super excited to share some more news about Hard Ink! I’m going to do another book in this series. And not just any book. I’m going to write a wedding novella for one of the couples in the series!! And I’m so flippin’ excited!!!
This is how this idea came about: I happened to see another author celebrating the release of a follow-up wedding book, and I’ve never written any follow-up stories about any of my characters—once they’ve gotten their happily ever afters in their original story, I just moved right on to the next couple. But that author’s book got me thinking about who I would even do a follow-up story on. Who is it that would get married? My initial thoughts went right to the Hard Ink series, of course, because I’ve been immersed in this world for the past two years and absolutely adore these characters. Seriously – I know many of us have joked about the title of the last book being apropos, and trust me when I say I’m feeling that, too. I want more Hard Ink myself.
And then I had to ask – which couple? My gut instinct was to say Nick and Becca. They started the series, have been together the longest, and the personal issues they each have and struggles they each face are less than some of the other characters. BUT…
But then my brain started to think about all the other couples. And as I thought through all of them, I could make a case why any of the Hard Ink couples might be the first to get married.
And that’s where YOU come in.
I can’t decide which couple to write.
I could make the argument for Nick and Becca for all the reasons above. I could make the argument that Shane would be eager to take care of Sara in every way he can. I could make the argument that Easy and Jenna’s bond would be so tight because of the hell Easy’s come through and him having saved Jenna’s life. Marz has never wanted anything more than a family, so I could see him being eager to make Emilie his forever. Jeremy and Charlie had the bond of best friends before becoming lovers, and I could see the two of them wanting to prove the depth of their love by committing to forever. And Kat so knocked Beckett on his ass that I could see him wanting to hold her tight and, well, never let go – and finally have a family that valued him.
So, yeah, I can’t decide!
Which means you guys get to.
I’m letting you pick.
Have you read and met all the Hard Ink couples yet? If not, now’s the time!
Because between now and July 31, you get to vote on which couple gets the bonus wedding novella.
