Meet Ryan Rose, My latest Hero who demanded his own story!

In Revelations From the Past we are introduced to Ryan, the heroin’s brother. He has a small part in the book but kept demanding his own story. Well his story is finished and submitted to my Editor 🙂
Thought you might like an unedited preview.

Watching the black F-350 pull up behind her battered Toyota, Emily frowned. Of course the owner of a construction company would drive a big truck. But his looked like it just drove out of the show room, not a construction site.
She watched him get out and her stomach jittered. He really was something to look at. The thick brown hair being blown by the wind from the passing cars was so sexy. And the tall, well-toned body striding toward her made her…a fool. What had she been thinking calling Lisa for help? True she’d been secretly hoping Lisa’d send Ryan, but what the hell’d she expect him to do for her? She had no tire for him to change, two dollars and some cents in her wallet, and all her credit cards were maxed-out. She was pathetic and soon her boss would know it.
She’d ask him take her home. She’d just leave her dying ride on the side of the road to be hauled off like the garbage it was. The city would call her to come get it. They’d expect her to pay the towing and storage fee but she’d just ignore them and hope they didn’t throw her in jail…
“Give me your keys,” Ryan held out his hand.
Emily blinked. “Why?”
“So I can open the trunk and get the spare. You have a jack, right?” Emily only stared at him. “If you don’t trust me, you can open it yourself.”
Uh Oh. He seemed cranky. “Look,” Emily began. “I shouldn’t have called your sister. I…I don’t know what I was thinking. I don’t have a jack…or a spare tire either. I…I just…” She threw her hands up. “I’m sorry I bothered you.”
“Do you have road side assistance?” Emily shook her head. “Okay, without a spare we’ll need to call a tow truck. They can take it to your mechanic, or a tire shop. I’ll take you home after the party then take you to get it fixed in the morning.”
When he pulled out his phone, Emily shook her head again. “No.”
“No?” He echoed. “You have a better idea?”
“I can’t pay for a tow truck,” she admitted. “If I could I wouldn’t have panicked and called your sister.”
Emily watched him inspect the remaining bald tires. From the way he frowned, she bet he’d figured out she couldn’t afford a new tire either.

You can meet Ryan now in Revelations From the Past

At the knock on her door, Lisa’s heart skipped a beat. Leaping off the bed, she smoothed her black dress and ran her fingers through her hair. Disappointment hit hard when she saw her brother’s face through the peephole. She wasn’t in the mood for another lecture on what their mother needed from her.
She should’ve known better than to expect Colby. Not after the way she’d hurt his feelings. He’d felt used and she’d done nothing to make him feel otherwise. It turned out for the best. If she wanted to get over him, and the amazing things he made her feel, she needed to end things cold turkey. To do that she must go home and get back to her life.
“Ryan,” Lisa warily stepped aside to let her brother enter.
“Fancy digs,” Ryan noted. “You’ve re-made yourself quite nicely, sis.”
Tears filled her eyes. “Not tonight, Ryan. Please.”
Ryan put his hands on her shoulders. “Ah God, Lisa, I didn’t mean that badly. I’m proud of how strong you’ve become. Losing Dad reminded me of how close we came to losing you. When you left it felt like I did lose you. Every day, I wish I’d tried harder to convince you to stay. You needed me and I wasn’t there for you.”
Lisa shook her head. “You did try. I’m the one who shut everybody out. I just needed to distance myself from everything that reminded me of Rob.” Lisa couldn’t meet her brother’s eyes when she added, “You were his best friend.”
“That’s why I avoided the subject. He was my friend so I felt responsible for not seeing that coming.”
“No.” Lisa hugged Ryan. “It wasn’t your fault, or mine. I just couldn’t stay. I needed to start over. But I missed you, all of you, every day.”
“Dad didn’t blame you, you know that. I think he understood better than Mom and I did.”
“I wish I’d spent more time with him. I wish…” Another knock interrupted her. Lisa threw he hands up in frustration. “That’s probably Kari checking up on me again.”
Without looking through the peephole, Ryan opened the door.
Colby checked the number on the door, right before slamming his fist into Ryan’s face.
Ryan stumbled back inside. “What the…”
“Ryan!” Lisa ran to his side. Turning to Colby, she screamed, “You bastard. You…”Catching the look in his eyes she swallowed the rest of her words.
Colby jerked a thumb toward Ryan sitting on the bed with a towel held against his bloody nose. “Is he the reason we can’t be? Or just tonight’s distraction?”
Lisa’s slap had him instinctively cuffing her wrist to avoid the second one from making contact.
Blood still dripping, Ryan jumped between them. “You’re going to want to let go of her,” he ordered. “We buried our father today. Whatever’s going on between you two will have to wait.”
Colby shoved Lisa into Ryan. “Fuck it, she’s all yours.”

Book Spotlight: A Genie’s Fortune (Reluctant Mates) by Jane Wakely

A Genie's Fortune Cover

Hi Everyone!

I’m really excited to be back here on Lori’s blog, talking about my latest release, A GENIE’S FORTUNE! A GENIE’S FORTUNE is book two in the Reluctant Mates series (Paranormal/Fantasy Romance), but each book is a stand-alone story with a new couple!

I’m thrilled to have you meet Ben and Dani! Here’s the blurb to their story:

Danica Weston enjoys her quiet, single life, content with being alone and making her own decisions. The horrors of the past have made her immune toward men, and her dreams of a family and a fairy tale ending disappeared a long time ago. When a man appears in her home, sent to protect her by the Council, she makes it clear they will never be anything more than friends.

Benjamin Darcy can’t believe the Council is forcing him to mate again. After the last episode, he’s through with mates, determined to live out the rest of his life alone. When he’s thrust into the petite human’s home, the sight of her melts his heart and all his plans go out the window. He offers her friendship and vows to protect her at all costs.

In order to sustain the numbers of all mythical beings, the Council, the governing body of the Mythical Realm, intervened and found prosperous matches for several of their subjects. Rather than create an act of treason punishable by death, Ben accepts his fate and embarks on his new life. Ben is unlike any man Dani has ever known, but fear from the past keeps her from taking a chance at happiness until she can no longer resist. When a mistake forces them apart, Dani must decide whether to live in the past, or embrace her strength and start living the life she always wanted.

Here’s an excerpt from A GENIE’S FORTUNE:

“You can’t be serious. A human?” Benjamin Darcy swept his gaze across the dais and shook his head. Every Council member met his questioning gaze with a look that let him know they weren’t joking. They wanted him to mate with a human.

“How am I going to pull that off? They aren’t even supposed to know about us.” Ben couldn’t believe their demands. Not only did he have to mate, but he had to mate with a human. He’d never told a human about his power. Part of the survival of the Mythical Realm meant keeping their secrets hidden from humans.

“She is different than the others. We are confident she will keep any information she learns about us to herself,” said Lord Nicholas, the High Council shifter.

The Council consisted of eight members, and they served as the guardians, or governing body, of the Mythical Realm. They enforced laws, guarded the history and provided protection and guidance to all of their subjects. One representative from each species sat on the Council, and the two groups with the highest population made up the High Council. As far back as he could remember, those chairs had always been held by a shifter and a vampire. In recent years, nothing had changed.

All of the Council members sat in high-backed thrones across the dais, but the High Council’s chairs were at least a foot higher than the others. The distinction was mostly for show because the group operated as one unit and each member carried the same weight as the others. If a stalemate decision had to be made, then one of the High Council members would step in and make the deciding vote, but it rarely happened. The eight worked well together and usually came to an agreement fairly quickly.
