Please welcome Sofia Grey to my blog!

A Welsh Wolf in Wellington blog tour


Since most of Sasha’s story takes place in Wellington, the compact and thriving capital city of New Zealand. I though it would be fun to feature a different part of the city – especially those mentioned in the book – on each tour ‘stop’. Come and join me on a truly unique virtual tour of Wellington J

Foxglove is a recent addition to the Waterfront area. A high end, but unpretentious bar & restaurant, it’s as popular during the day as it is at night. In the summer, it’s a great place to sit outside and watch the boats in the harbour. In winter, grab a seat upstairs and look at the city lights spread out in the distance.

Foxglove is one of those places that has a ‘vibe’. An undercurrent of something that most people outwardly ignore, while just accepting they like being there.
Megan enjoys drinking at Foxglove with her friends. The widely held reason is because it’s central for a lot of Wellington’s night life, but underneath, she feels the pull. It’s not a shifter bar, but it definitely has something going on. Maybe one day I’ll find out…


In this extract, Megan is waiting to meet her friends at Foxglove, when Sasha finds her:

Sasha braced himself for the explosion he knew was coming. Jake was going to be beyond angry. As he prepared to make the call, his phone buzzed with a new message: Jake requests FaceTime. Nu-huh. He declined and dialed Jake’s number instead.
“What’s going on, Sash?”

“I’m nearly there, Cuz, just got delayed.” He hastened his footsteps. “Can you ask them to hang on? Got to go, I’ll update you later.” He terminated the call and switched off the phone. With luck, Jake would pacify the Kiwi wolves, he'd make the meeting and recover from tonight's monster fuck-up.

He’d only gone a short distance when he scented her again. Megan. His wolf pricked up his ears and scratched at him. She was close and Sasha hesitated. If he delayed any further he’d only be compounding the level of trouble he’d be in. Fuck it. Two minutes wouldn’t hurt. Just to check she was okay.

He found her standing just inside the doorway to a sprawling trendy bar, with her back leaning against the doorframe, head bent and the evening sun casting fiery sparks through her hair. She spoke brightly into her phone, one finger absently playing with the hem of her shiny top while she chattered. The fabric draped softly over her gorgeous curves and Sasha couldn’t drag his eyes away. Leggy blondes were overrated. He now had a passion for curvy brunettes, and this one in particular.

A Handful Of Wolf  is available 25 November 2013, from Liquid Silver Books.

Sasha's not a looking-to-the-future kind of guy, but he's made an exception with his plans to travel and meet lots of pretty girls. Too bad his Pack Alpha, fate, and reality have other ideas about his trip abroad. He's pretty sure he didn't sign on to be a diplomat for the Snowdonia Wolf Pack. Or to find a Mate. Especially not a human Mate.

Megan knows better than to let a sweet-talking charmer get under her skin, but Sasha's sexy playfulness is making her forget all her rules. Except one: she's not willing to risk her heart by falling in love. The gorgeous boy from Wales can only be a fling, especially since her over-protective brothers hate him on sight. 

In the midst of a wolf uprising, a hesitant Mate, and Megan’s complicated family ties, Sasha learns that sometimes impulsiveness is dangerous and even lethal. Can he show Megan why they belong together before it all comes crashing down around him and he loses his Mate forever?

Please welcome Molly Ann Wishlade to the blog! 18+ excerpt!!!!

Blog Interview With Molly Ann Wishlade

Do you have a special place that you like to write in? A routine you need to go through - such as 6 chocolate chip biscuits before you start! Music on? Music off? Kids chained up?

I write anywhere and anytime I can get. As I currently work fulltime, it’s hard to write as much as I’d like but I do my best! So I write at the kitchen table, in bed, in a chair – any way I can! Unfortunately, that means I don’t have time for a routine as such but coffee really helps me get going! I’m very lucky that my husband and kids are understanding. They know how much this means to me and how hard I try to make sure that they’re all fed, clothed and happy, so they try to let me write when I get the chance.

Do you plot or write by the seat of your pants? How did you develop that technique?

I was a ‘pantser’ but I kept hitting that middle of the story sag because it meant that I wasn’t always sure where it was going. So now I plan. Carefully. The stories don’t always stick to the plan because, as you know, characters often take off in directions you hadn’t thought of, but that’s a great part of writing! It’s exciting when midway through a novel, the characters guide you where they want to go.

I do admire you for plotting. I wish I could but I agree whichever method you use, stories have a life of their own!

What made you want to be a writer?

I have always wanted to write. I grew up convinced I’d be a journalist or a poet. I wrote stories and read voraciously. I constantly had a book in my hand and when I discovered Jane Eyre…well, I fell in love with romance! I went to University at eighteen to study English, Media and Drama and I continued writing but I had a bit of a confidence crisis, thinking that I probably couldn’t do it as I didn’t have sufficient life experience. I allowed my life to drift for a while and kind of fell into teaching. Fast-forward some years (lol) and I finally thought it was worth trying again. And here I am. Still trying but much, much harder!
I have so many stories that I want to tell and I’m striving to get them out there! 2014 will be a busy year! Look out! ;)

I had the same crisis of confidence, Molly. Studying all the greats of English literature left me feeling I was a fraud for thinking I could write.

What is the best thing about being published?

This is a difficult one because it’s just amazing being published. Seeing a book that you created on sale with a beautiful cover created especially to fit your story is AMAZING! From acceptance, to contract, to edits to release day to first sale, I love the experience. I’ve had a tough few years for a variety of reasons but when I’m writing I can escape and to know that the product of my imagination is providing others with their own form of escapism is incredibly satisfying. I just want to keep on going!

What sort of books do you like to read? Why!

I read all sorts – from gothic romances to Stephen King – but I’m definitely a romance junkie! I find so much enjoyment in the stories but also in admiring the craft itself and studying how other romance authors create the conflicts and the intensity between their characters. It fascinates me. Also, I’m addicted to books about the Tudors. I went to Hever Castle in the summer for my birthday and it was fabulous! I have lots of photographs which I’ll post soon on my blog. I also have a plot for a novel featuring Anne Boleyn prepared and I can’t wait to get writing it. I’m currently researching for it and enjoying reading some biographies. It’s amazing how different the portrayals of that fascinating woman are but it will hopefully make for a great read!

Favourite TV shows? Why!

At the moment, having signed up to Netflix, we’ve become addicted to The IT Crowd. It’s just so funny! We’re watching several episodes at a time but the humour is just daft and my kids love it! It’s a battle at breakfast times to see who can quote the funniest line! I also enjoy more serious shows though such as Braquo and Hannibal. And whenever I’m a bit blue, re-runs of Friends are brilliant for lifting my spirits.

If you could give your younger self a few words of advice - what would they be?

Wow! This is a BIG question. I spent a lot of time wishing that I’d dealt with things differently when I was a teenager – like when my parents divorced. I won’t bore you with details but I guess it’s always easier to think about what you would have done or could have done, with hindsight. I am a worrier and I’ve wasted a lot of time worrying when it changed nothing at all. So I would say Don’t worry so much and grab every day and live it to the full because we spend a lot of time wishing for the time when things will be easier, or less stressful, and those times either don’t come or you find that when they do, you’re missing someone you lost along the way. It’s easy to regret things but regret is a waste of time because you can’t change yesterday but you can have an effect upon today and tomorrow.

Good advice!!

Describe what you'd like to be doing 10 years from now.

Hopefully, writing fulltime and no longer teaching. It’s sad but much as I enjoy the teaching part of the job, the bureaucracy in the profession in Britain has gone mad and you can’t simply enjoy seeing the pupils make progress. Plus writing is what I’ve always wanted to do. So writing whilst being a loving wife and mother with a happy and healthy family around me. And maybe a few chickens and that rescue greyhound I keep asking for. Not much, just simple things and peace of mind.

Thanks for answering my questions, Molly!

Wanton in the Wild West by Molly Ann Wishlade

Sometimes a train journey can take you in an unexpected direction.
It is 1890, and the Chicago and North-Western Railroad now runs into Deadwood. After a year in Chicago, Amber Carpenter is homeward bound via steam train, escorted by two gorgeous cowboys. Amber swore a long time ago that she would never let a man hurt her, but that doesn’t mean that she’s not open to the idea of some fun.
Harry Delaney and Gideon Swain have their sights set on a bright future … if only their tragic past wasn’t holding them back. But from the moment they laid eyes on Amber Carpenter, they knew that there was something different about her.

Can the three of them turn their lives around within the space of a train journey?

Amber stirred and opened her eyes. She blinked rapidly trying to clear the disorientation she felt.
She was naked. Outside. Wrapped around a naked man.
She lifted her head and looked into his hazel eyes.
“Hey there, beautiful!” he whispered, then leant towards her and kissed her softly.
She enjoyed the warmth of his lips on hers, the feel of his strong, hard body and the growing erection, which pressed into her belly.
“Hello, Harry.” She smiled then realized that the day was cooler. The sun was lower in the sky. “Shouldn’t we be getting back? Before we’re missed?”
Doubt flooded into his gaze, and she wished that she could withdraw her words.
“If that’s what you want. We’ve not been gone all that long though, and they’ll call. Or Gideon will come looking once they’re ready to go.”
Amber placed her forefinger over his lips.
“Okay. Then what do we do while we’re waiting?”
Harry kissed her finger, and then his lips curved into a broad smile. “I can think of a few things.”
He rolled her onto her back and started to kiss her. Amber stretched out, savoring the exquisite sensations shooting through her limbs and flooding her body. She was amazed at the effect that this man had upon her. Just a touch or a kiss could set her skin on fire and her heart racing.
Was this just a physical reaction? Like the engine of the train, which was powered by coal or wood, were her feelings for Harry just powered by lust and desire? Or was there something else unfolding here? Something out of her control that could threaten her very resolve to remain single and independent.
His insistent mouth worked away her fears and her confusion, and she surrendered to him. His mouth on her breasts, his skilled fingers working her clitoris, and his erect cock as it pressed into her leg all took her further away from rational thought.
Then he moved his hand lower. Amber gasped as he tenderly probed between her folds and found the tight hole that led into her body.
He looked up from her breasts for a moment, seeking her approval, and she nodded at him. She wanted this. He returned to suckle her breasts, a feeling so delightful that she felt as if something inside her moved in time with his mouth. She gasped when she felt him inside her, touching her secret place tentatively with a finger. As he moved it in and out, Amber sighed and entwined her hands in his hair. She moved her hips in time with him, enjoying yet wanting more.
When he slid in another finger, she felt her opening stretching. A slight burning. Then nothing but incredible intense ecstasy. So many new and wonderful feelings! He plunged into her then withdrew before plunging again.
She moaned as he covered her clitoris with his mouth, cradling her bottom in his left hand whilst working inside her body with his right one. And she began to ascend again, her excitement winding up inside her like a coiled spring until suddenly it burst from her with a hot gush, and she throbbed into his mouth, time after time after time, riding wave after glorious wave of delight.
Harry continued to kiss her pussy for a while, running his tongue over her silken folds and sucking at the place where he had entered her, and she shivered with delightful little aftershocks. Then he climbed up her body and lay over her, resting on his elbows. His face was shiny with her juices, and his eyes shone with lust and something else, something so intense that it made her heart flip.
“Harry,” she whispered as she cupped his bristly chin between her palms. “Thank you.”
“My pleasure.” He grinned.
“No.” A deep voice emerging from the trees startled them both. “My pleasure!”
Harry pushed himself up to his knees, and Amber rolled onto her belly, trying to hide her nudity.
“Gideon.” Harry smiled. He jumped to his feet and hurried towards the other cowboy.

With or Without Him!

Well this has to be the sexiest cover I've had. Definitely one of my favourites though it isn't exactly how I'd imagined Tyler and Haris - but that doesn't matter. It would be a miracle if a cover artist could read my mind and work out exactly what I wanted when I never really know myself. I'm a bird of little brain. 
Anyhoo - the book is out today on general release. I've already had some lovely reviews and if you like it, I hope you'll consider reviewing it too or at least telling your friends. 


Everyone has at least one deep-seated fear. For Tyler, it’s being in debt. He’s so desperate to get out and stay out of it, he’ll do almost anything—including selling his body at Saturday night sex parties.

But he refuses to open his mind to anyone, especially the men paying to use him however they want. The only time he’s truly happy is during the week at college, when he can escape into his music.

The moment Haris sees Tyler playing piano at a concert, he falls hard, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make the guy his. Even if it means—for the first time in his life—opening his wallet as wide and desperate as his heart.

£20,000 to live with a good-looking guy for four months? How can Tyler resist the chance to ditch the sex party scene for good? But neither man realizes how much they’re risking. And when outside forces close in, ready to destroy them, the trickiest part about the next four months could be just surviving.

Product Warnings
Contains a “for hire” bad boy with a filthy mouth, an awkward guy with a penchant for BDSM, a hypochondriac butler who won’t shut up, a dog called Alcide, and a lot of hot and dirty M/M sex.

To be fair, this isn't a BDSM book - so if you like BDSM you might be disappointed. But BDSM does play a role in the story.

My first grandchild had his first birthday yesterday! My daughter held a cake-smash - a shop bought cake covered in butter cream and hundreds and thousands that he was encouraged to play with, destroy, eat - do whatever he wanted. What Jackson wanted was to pick off the hundreds and thousands! Then he got into the swing of things.

While I spent a couple of hours trying to order information into some sort of logical fashion in order to put a page about me on Wikipedia. I discovered I now have over 30 books published and several novellas and short stories. Since my first book only came out in 2008 - I think that calls for a celebration. Where's my cake? (Oh I should add, I didn't write all those after 2008 - many were written before!)

I had a book recently published called Perfect Trouble - it's a shortish paranormal, an MF, featuring Jinx the werewolf and Jonah the faerie. Did you read it? Did you like it? If you didn't, would you tell me why? It's difficult writing in a vacuum, I never know whether readers like that I mix and match genres or not. Most MM writers seem to stick to that in all their books but I've written everything, MF, MMF, MM but not FF. Similarly with settings - I'm as happy writing contemporary as I am paranormal but do readers like that?
My second ever Sci Fi romance is done. Awaiting judgement from a couple more beta readers before I launch it on the perilous trip to a publisher and no matter how many books I've had accepted, there is always that worry - is it good enough, funny enough, sexy enough?

And a piece of interesting trivia - Ostriches are impossible to train because they don't remember what happens from one day to the next - or maybe they just like being awkward!
