Love Bytes says hello and welcome to author A F Henley returning to our blog to talk about their new release “Wolf in League”, Book 3 in the succesful Wolf Series.
Welcome A F 🙂
Hello! And welcome back to the Wolf, in League blog tour and giveaway. It’s an honour and a pleasure to have you here, on Love Bytes Reviews celebrating the release day of this new novel! As the third novel in the Wolf series, I can honestly say that there are few things in life I am as proud of as I am for sticking with writing this series. Who would have ever known that when I first sat down to write Thicker Than Water that one of the characters was going to make the impact on me that he has? He is just SUCH a spoiled, bitter, thing. And I have SUCH big plans for him.
But enough about what’s happening in the future, and let’s focus on what’s happening now. For those that have been following along with the Wolf series and each novel’s blog tour, you already know this process. I’m “teasing” everyone will tiny excerpts from the story, and at the same time offering up a tour-wide giveaway that (I hope) goes well with the tour. This time around the giveaway consists of a signed, print copy of Wolf in League, a “crystal and silver” diamante Howling Wolf Pendant, and a $20 gift certificate to the Less Than Three Press book market. One winner takes home the whole lot. Follow the post to the end to find out how to play along.
And now, the teaser, and a quick peek at Wolf’s villain this time around…
The sun was rising. He could smell it in the air—crossed wires, blown fuses, burning ozone—and it left a bitter taste in his throat. At that point there wasn’t a single beam of light in the sky, not even a brightening of the horizon, but it was most definitely coming; he could feel it worming into his pores, lifting hair, rolling alongside every thump of his sluggish blood. Above him the bats entertained as they always did, circling like performers on soundless wings with their ‘fingers’ extended to ply the wind into workable currents. Below him sat a fat rat, gorging appreciatively on the leftovers of the dinner he had left for it. Bones crunched and splintered beneath its furiously working teeth, but although it ate with fervor it never took its beady black eyes off its provider. It knew that in a moment the tall, slim man could decide he was still hungry and there would be no reprieve for the rat if that was his choice. While quick, the rat could never be quick enough to outrun the man. Not this one.
The man had no interest in the rat, though. His hunger, for food anyway, had been satiated. Now he stood and watched the dark skies for the shine of what he could smell approaching, musing on another hunger entirely: the one for justice. For vengeance. For it too was coming, as sure as the sunlight. That he could control; would control. And maybe, someday, he’d find a way to control the sun as well. Because by all rights and dues he hated the sun the second-most of all the things in life. He hated the way it burned his eyes, the way it bubbled his skin, the way it forced him to see everything in blacks and grays—he hated the way it had stolen the very color from his life.
The greedy bitch. The choosy, picky, human-loving bitch. The brilliant, burning, vampire-hating bitch.
He hated it. Except… as much as the hate… he missed it. He missed feeling it, seeing it, closing his eyes and warming his skin with it…
But that was a truth he would not speak of, even to himself.
Wolf, in League Excerpt

Wolf, in League
It’s been months since anyone at the Committee has had any contact from the O’Connell family or their pack members, and they are not happy. Suspicious of the activities that took place in D.C. and determined to find out what the wolves are up to, the Committee recruits one of their newest residents, Doctor Matthew Dietrich, to play the part of neighbor and infiltrate the family.
Matthew has always been a keep-to-himself kind of person. Though idealistic and optimistic, he prefers to work in solitude, at night, while he researches the findings that he hopes will one day change the world. When he’s approached by the executives of the Center, he has no idea why they’d choose him. And to say he is skeptical over the concept of men that can shift into wolves would be an understatement. Until he meets his new partner, the man that will play the part of his “husband” in the Committee’s scheme, Doctor Gavin Strauss.
Genre: Gay, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy
Notes: Wolf, in League contains some explicit and violent content

A self-professed Google genius, Henley lives for the hours spent digging through the Internet for ‘research purposes’ which, more often than not, lead seven thousand miles away from first intentions but bring Henley to new discoveries and ideas that, once seeded, tend to flourish.
