COVER REVEAL! Cookie Cutter by Jo Richardson

coverfinalcovercookiecutter copy
Author: Jo Richardson
Publisher: Little Bird Publishing
Genre: Contemporary RomCom
Release date: March 23, 2015

Blurb:
Iris Alden and Carter Blackwood couldn’t be more different. Change-averse Iris likes her life neat and organized, while Carter’s itchy feet mean he doesn’t plan to stay in the same place for long.

When Carter moves into the house across the street from Iris, to renovate it, she fights the disruption it causes in her life. Before long, though, it’s not simply the house Carter’s rebuilding, but Iris’s heart, too.

Teaser:
“What are you doing here?”

It’s Carter freaking Blackwood. Of course.

He smiles that ridiculously bright, white smile of his and lets out a soft snicker. “I’m fixing a floor for a friend, what are you doing here?”

It’s completely obvious what I’m doing here, seeing as I’m carrying two huge trays of sugar cookies in my arms.

“A friend? You just moved in. How do you have friends already?” I say it a bit harsher than I probably should but honestly, how does he have friends already? James and I were here a good six months before people started really talking to me. It was a year before I could call any of them friends. The edges of Carter’s mouth turn down and his head dips to one side as his shoulders hunch then settle.

“People like me, I guess.”

The smug look on his face is enough to make me want to slap it. Or kiss it.

Wait. Not kiss it. I didn’t mean kiss it. Why am I staring at his lips?

“People who don’t want to kill me that is. Are you okay?”

I blink, and search my brain, but I’m still not quite sure what to say to him, so I extend my arms. “I brought cookies.” As soon as I say the words, I hear them. I sound ridiculous and Carter’s bright eyes crinkle with amusement.

He closes his lids and he breathes the baked goods in. Then hums. The sound of his voice sends a vibration through me and I shiver. I am eternally grateful that he doesn’t see it happen.

His eyes open slowly. When they reach mine, I’m glued to his stare like a deer in headlights.

“Those cookies smell really fucking good, Iris.”

The bedroom eyes catch me off guard and my mouth falls open so I snap it shut. I’m a buffoon with no ability to speak.

“Can I have one?” He reaches out and I balance the platter with one hand, then slap his fingers with the other while I find words. A word that is.

“No.”

“Ow.” He pulls his hand away, like a child getting reprimanded, only when we make eye contact again, he doesn’t seem child like to me.

I wouldn’t say he’s angry. He doesn’t exactly laugh, either. And his eyes gleam as he stares at me. I hate his eyes almost as much as I hate his teeth. Maybe more. Dammit, I’m staring, again.

“They’re for Ally’s class,” I tell him. “Fundraiser, I mean bake sale.” I fumble my words. He’s so frustrating.

The Dragon’s Heart (Dragon Lore Book One) DELETED SCENE (NSFW)

Hi!

If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you probably know that Micah Dragan, of the Dragon Lore series, is one of the most complicated males in my head. He’s greedy, moody, demanding, down-right asshole-ish, and a general pain in my backside.

Oh, and he happens to be soulless at the moment, as well. So, I can forgive a lot from him. And believe me, this info is important, because when he meets his female…

Holy. Shitballs.

One of the hardest parts in editing The Dragon’s Heart, was cutting a scene featuring Micah’s point-of-view. My editor won, because she was right: The scene didn’t add anything to Daniel and Shelby’s story. But, to understand Micah completely for future books, I think the scene is important.

So, I’m putting the scene out there. I originally added it to February’s newsletter, but I’m posting it here for those who haven’t signed up.

And I should warn you now, before you read: Micah is not a nice guy. But, oh man, I love him. Out of all my heroes, he’s the one with the biggest journey to get to his HEA. He has the biggest fight ahead of him. There are still days *I* doubt whether or not he will make it that long. And most days, I wouldn’t blame him if he didn’t.

Without further ado…Meet Micah Dragan. (One last word of warning, this is completely unedited.)

***

Micah Dragon liked knives. He liked playing with them, and he liked using them. They were much more personal, and more satisfying, than any other weapon he’d found. They allowed him to get up close, to get his hands dirty as he made the kill.

“Hey, where’d you go?” The woman on his lap pouted as she dragged her mouth up his throat, her hand busy freeing him from his jeans as music pulsed in the air around them. “You don’t like me?”

As Micah absently flipped the ancient dagger in his hand, his gaze flicked over her, reminding himself what she looked like. Dark hair, exotic eyes, full mouth. Fuckable, and completely forgettable. Ignoring the club full of people, he leaned his head back against the booth while she shifted herself in his lap, hiking her skirt up enough to take him in. Her head dropped back on a satisfied hiss, her hips rocking over him at a slow, deliberate pace.

He stifled a yawn, and let his gaze wander around the club. Something wasn’t right. The air was always thick with tension and danger in a Dragan-run club, it was what drew so many people. But tonight was different, and the thrill-seekers may get what they hoped for if he stuck around long enough.

The woman riding him snagged his free hand and pressed it to her breast as her body arched back, a low moan he assumed was supposed to be seductive escaping her as he did what she silently commanded and palmed her small breast. He knew it was her attempt to bring his focus back to her, but she was just a willing body. And he’d had centuries of women throwing themselves at him for the thrill of being with him. She was just one more out of thousands, and he was too distracted to participate. As long as she was willing to do the work to get them both off, he was content to let her.

“Dragan.” Diego, a Dragan underling who was proving to have the stomach to claw his way to the top, tossed a file onto the table as he slid into the booth across from him. One brow winged up as he watched the woman fuck Dragan. “Should I come back?”

“No. What did you find?”

Diego shrugged and leaned forward, bracing his forearms on the table. “Ashborne’s sister. It took some digging, Ashborne hid her well, but I found her. She’s living in Chicago.”

“She’s here?”

“Yeah.” Diego’s eyes flicked to the woman as she sank her teeth into Micah’s shoulder as she climaxed, causing the elder dragon to groan. He waited until the woman stopped trembling with aftershocks before he cleared his throat and continued. “She owns a loft downtown. The address and her picture are in the file.”
Realizing she wasn’t going to get any more of Micah’s attention than she already had, the woman leaned up to kiss him, but Micah’s attention was already shifted. He lifted her off his lap as he leaned forward and flipped open the file. He didn’t bother to so much as glance at the photograph as he hunted down the notes Diego was methodical about. It didn’t matter what she looked like. She was ammo, leverage to use against Ashborne. That was it.
“The apartment across from her is empty?”

“Yeah.” Diego leaned back in the booth and crossed his arms over his chest. “You want me to call and let them know you’ll be renting it?”

“Yeah.” The woman and Diego forgotten, Micah put his cock away and zipped his jeans before he stood and grabbed the file. “I’m going now.”

“And if Alexi asks where you are?”

“Tell him I said to fuck himself.”

Diego winced, before he shrugged. “Do I tell him about the girl?”

“No. I don’t trust his decisions. I’ll take care of the girl, and decide later how much to tell him.”

“Alright.” Diego slid out of the booth and straightened. At six-foot-four, he was still a good three inches and twenty pounds of muscle smaller than Micah. And if the size difference wasn’t enough to keep everyone under him where they belonged, the madness in Dragan’s eyes sure as hell was. No one crossed Micah Dragan and survived. Ever.

**

Meet Dragan, along with the rest of the Dragon Lore males in Daniel and Shelby’s story, The Dragon’s Heart.

CONTENT WARNING: Graphic fight scenes, lots of great sex, and hot, hot, hot dragon men.

Cover (FINAL)

The dragon-shifter king will do anything to keep his mate alive…even if it means war.

After millennia as king of the dragon-shifters, Daniel Ashborne wants a little peace and quiet, especially from the beautiful Hollywood starlet who haunts his memories. His escape tactics end abruptly when he is called to the ER to save the one woman he wants to forget, but who now bears his mark.

Shelby Kincade’s life and movie career were nearly destroyed when Daniel vanished a year ago. Now he’s back, claiming they have been accidentally mated. Getting over him once was hard enough, but now she must choose either the life of her dreams or the man she can’t live without.

With peace finally on the horizon between the dragon-shifters and the Hunters, an assassination attempt on the dragon king and his mate shatters everything. Tensions rebuild as Daniel and his loyal team of shifters try to discover who put out the hit. Enemy and ally lines are crossed, but in the end–after the battle ash has settled–no one could have foreseen who has plotted for their own gain.

Ten years ago, visions of death and the babble of lupine voices in his head, drove lone wolf Brick Northridge to challenge his cruel and greedy pack alpha. Beaten by the alpha’s thugs and banished from the pack, Brick lives a life of seclusion in a mountain cabin in the Black Hills.

Born into a rival clan of feline shifters, skinwalker Summer McCoy, in her guise as a raven, watches Brick from afar, giving him back a reason to live through her sweet songs and special gifts.

But when her clan attempts to tear them apart and threatens the pack that banished Brick so many years before, will their love be strong enough to withstand the forces bent on their destruction?

Excerpt:

Summer McCoy perched in the uppermost branches of her special Ponderosa pine, in raven guise, engaging in her favorite pastime, spying on the lone wolf chopping wood below. Two days’ worth of whiskers shadowed his rigid jaw. She loved when he forgot—or didn’t bother—to shave. Scruffy stubble suited him.

The sun beat down on the back of his bronzed neck and shone on his hair, the color of roasted coffee, a shade lighter than the dark shadow that charcoaled his face.

She fluffed her feathers in anticipation. Take your shirt off, Brick.

She’d heard the giant werebear, Gee, call him that name a decade ago. He’d made some joke about a wall and the hardness of the male’s head. But Brick hadn’t laughed back then. Not ever.

He’d fascinated her from the moment he’d arrived in the glade, bruised and battered. Once she’d learned his name, she’d treasured it, taking pleasure from repeating it often. Secretly, of course. Unwrapping the syllable frequently to admire its radiance in the privacy of her tree house, the way a woman wearing pearls against her warm skin enhanced their luminosity and iridescence.

Now, as if he’d heard her silent urging, he complied with her plea, shrugging out of the plaid flannel and flinging it onto a tree stump. Her beak opened as she sucked in breath. Sweat glistened on his torso, glazing rippling pecs and abs, shoulders broad enough to span the Badlands. A huge, incredible specimen of masculinity. Thick biceps flexed as he wielded the ax. Her heart beat faster than a hummingbird’s wings. Heat licked her.

Wolf'sSong_300x450INTERVIEW:

Thank you for visiting The Dragon Lair! So tell me a little bit about WOLF’S SONG and the characters.
Thrilled to be here! WOLF’S SONG was a lot of fun for me to write. I’m no stranger to sexy paranormals (my of my books are!), but this is my first shifter story. I love reading others, but for some reason never felt the pull of the moon myself. Until…

Where did the story come from?
Back in the beginning of March 2013 (yes, that’s right, 2013!) I received a mysterious email with the subject line “Got a Minute?” from the series creator, Rebecca Royce, author of the first book in the series, WOLF’S RETURN, which came out a couple of weeks ago. Rebecca and Heather Long (author of the second book in the series, WHAT A WOLF WANTS, which also came out in January) were at a reader-writer conference and cooked up the idea of a multi-author series, set in the Black Hills of South Dakota, about a wolf pack in disarray, due to the neglect and worse of its evil alpha, Magnum Tao. The series was to start when Magnum’s son, Drew (Rebecca’s hero) returns to the pack to depose Magnum and set things right. Some of our editors (we were all published by Decadent Publishing) were also at the conference. Decadent loved the idea and set a launch date of January, 2015. After receiving such a mysterious invite, how could I say no? All the books are stand-alone, but the Black Hills Wolves world is originally set in Rebecca’s and Heather’s books.

Can you tell me a little about the characters?
My story actually begins 10 years before Drew returns, when Magnum is still alpha. My hero, Brick Northridge, was only a pup of 18 at the time. He hears the other wolves’ voices in his head and sees visions of their future deaths. He attacks Magnum, gets beaten down and banished, and lives out in a cabin in the woods in isolation for ten years. At first, he has no interest in living at all. But the heroine, Summer McCoy, has other ideas. When Brick first encounters her, she’s in the guise of a raven. She’s part skinwalker and part feline shifter and belongs to a clan of big cat shifters out to destroy Brick’s old pack. She helps bring Brick back to life through her songs and gifts and loves him from afar. And then he meets her in her woman form. Zing!

What about these characters fascinated you, and made you want to tell their story?
He’s a wolf with issues. She’s a cat who prefers to fly free as a raven. What’s not to love? 

Can I meet them?
Well, Brick’s a lone wolf kind of guy. But Summer will plonk him if he mumbles.

So, Brick. While remembering to keep this PG-13 in case my mother reads this, what’s your favorite thing about Summer?
Yeah, so PG-13? I’ll have to go with some other favorite things. Have you heard my baby sing? This is a bird who’s never afraid to drop black walnuts (or other things) on my head if I get too growly.

Summer, same question. What was it about Brick that drew you in, and made you decide HIM. I want HIM? Other than his manly bits, of course.
Hey, I wouldn’t discount those manly bits so quick. Have you seen him? He’s drop-dead gorgeous. I was fascinated by him from the second the giant werebear dropped him on the porch of the cabin, 18 and beaten to a pulp. I loved watching him, er, fill out and muscle up over the years. The way he began to build the rustic cabin into a home. Have I mentioned that he whittles? Works of art! And I love racing with him under the moon. This is a wolf who will protect and defend. No matter what.

What do you think is the best part of the story?
Brick: Yeah, so PG-13? Did you ever hear a wolf whistle?
Summer: Down, boy.

So, now that the book is over, how are you all behaving for Taryn?
[Brick pats Summer’s belly]. It’s not Taryn I behave for.
Summer: Down, boy.

How do you feel about your love story being out in the world, for everyone to read?
Brick: I’m not too thrilled.
Summer [plonks him with a black walnut]: Don’t mind him. He loves to frighten the humans by going all lone-wolf growly. But he’ll never be a lone wolf again.
Brick: [Big wolfy grin.] And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

You have been awesome. Thank you so much for visiting me. Is there anything else you’d like to add about WOLF’S SONG before I let you get back to your lives?
Summer: Awesome book. Awesome series. Hero that make me swoon.
Brick: Heroin that makes me drool.

Taryn, they are so much fun. Thank you so much for visiting me, and allowing me to drag these characters out to play! Is there anything else you want to add before I let you get back to your life?
So excited about WOLF’S SONG – and the entire series. Great things to come! Check out my web site or blog for things to come. Next up is IF YOU CAN’T STAND THE HEAT, my sizzling contemporary foodie romance for Fated Desires Publishing. It releases on 2/24, but it’s available for pre-order on Amazon, Kobo, Googleplay and iBooks now!
Thanks for having me in. It’s been a blast!
