EXCERPT #1 FROM OBSESSION
(copyright 2015 by Bonnie Vanak) 

No one would miss her. They were too absorbed in the thrill of the run.
But something scuffled along the forest floor. Jessica tensed. She lacked the magick to properly clothe herself, and she was too exhausted to shift back to wolf.
A beam of silver moonlight spilled upon the forest floor, and hit the wolf standing there in the quiet glen.
Raphael. He’d turned around to find her.
Jessica shivered anew. He shifted back to Skin and stood before her, equally nude. Moonlight glinted on his dark hair, shadowing his face, silhouetting his strong, athletic body. Such a prime example of a fierce male Lupine. Desire flushed her body, chasing away the cold. Then she remembered what he was.
Pureblood.
Unlike her.
Her arousal faded. She stared into the forest, her chest hollow.
“Why are you sitting here?” He joined her, sitting on the ground, lacing his hands around his knees.
He was still naked, too. Jessica hugged herself, more from the cold than modesty. “I felt like a break. Just wanted to absorb the beauty of the night in Skin form.”
What a lie. He could easily see through it, she knew he could. But Raphael only leaned his head back against the tree. Then he waved his hand, conjuring a large flannel shirt and handed it to her.
“You look chilled,” he murmured.
Grateful, she slipped it on and thanked him. He regarded her with his steady gaze. This Lupine didn’t ask why she failed to conjure clothing, or make her feel awkward.
Jessica looked at him. “I’ve always been different from other Lupines. In my pack, my alpha doesn’t like me socializing much with the single males because he doesn’t want me choosing a mate from them. He likes keeping the bloodlines… pure.”
“Your alpha is narrow-minded. He cannot appreciate your true beauty. Simply because you can’t run as fast as the pack, or have the same magick as most Lupines doesn’t make you weak. Just different.”
A wry smile touched her mouth. “Funny. I just said the same thing to Daniel.”
“I know.”
“You overheard that?”
Smiling, he picked up a lock of her hair, and rubbed it. “You have a very kind heart. It’s one of your many unique qualities, Jessica. Compassion for others. A naughty sense of humor. And a most exquisite mouth. Small and ripe, as sweet-looking as a fresh cherry.”
No man in college ever told her that. They just wanted her to lie down and spread her legs. Jessica had wanted more. Needed more.
His gaze dropped lower, to her legs.
“You’re quite tempting. And very clever. And naughty.”
Her jaw dropped as he pulled her into his arms, and turned her over on his knee. Raphael pulled up the shirt and caressed her bottom.
“So plump and lovely. Such a sweet ass.”
A moan tore from her throat as his hand moved lower. Raphael traced the curve of her buttocks, then slid a finger down to her core. “So very sweet.”
Shock pummeled her as he brought his hand down firmly on her bare ass.
“That’s for screwing up my phone.”
As she shrieked out a protest at the stinging slap, he pressed his mouth upon the spot he’d just spanked. His mouth felt warm caressing her naked flesh where the sting of his palm still resonated. Raphael’s gentle kiss soothed away the brief pain. “And that is for being kind to Daniel.”
Jessica scrambled off his lap and sat on the ground, staring at him. “What do you want, Raphael? You’re an enigma, more than me.”
Moonlight revealed shadows in his dark eyes, tempered with a flicker of haunting loneliness. “The same thing you desire, little Red, though we both deny it. We both want a place to call home.”
Confused, she kept staring at him. “But you have a home here with J.J.’s pack.”
“I live here. But it is not home, and can never be a home. I’m a stranger here. So you see, Jessica, like you, I am also outcast and until I unite my former pack, it will always be so.”
Her heart turned over at his confession. She drew closer, slid a hand over his bearded chin. “I know what it’s like to be lonely among many.”
As she reached up to kiss him, he lowered his head. Jessica closed her eyes and sighed at the subtle pressure of his mouth. She parted her lips and he responded with a light touch, nibbling gently at her lower lip, his tongue slipping inside the moist cavern of her mouth. She slid her arms around his neck, inviting him closer.
Warmth spread through her, heating her blood, surging into her veins like fire. His scent wrapped around her like a blanket, warm male musk, spices and citrus. Jessica felt the hardness of his arousal against her belly as she pressed closer. She wanted that hardness inside her, pushing so deep that they’d become one, his seed filling her, making her pregnant with his baby…
Realization hit her. Gasping, she drew back. Raphael panted, his eyes darkening with desire.
“You’re coming into your heat,” he said, his voice deep.

Q & A with Bonnie Vanak, author of Obsession

Q:  Are you a plotter or pantzer when it comes to writing?

A:  I’m a “plantzer.” I do both. In addition to writing my self-published Werewolves of Montana series, I also write for Harlequin, so I have to turn in a synopsis. A synopsis is a terrific writing tool. With my Werewolves of Montana books, I’ll write a basic synopsis when I’m starting a new story. It helps me to gain a good idea of the characters’ motivations and emotional conflict.

Q:  Do you prefer an alpha, beta or gamma hero?

A:  Alpha, definitely. Love writing and reading about alpha males. In my new Werewolves of Montana Mating Mini, Obsession, the hero is an alpha werewolf who lost his pack.

Q:  Which would you rather read, historical or contemporary romance?

A:  Historical romance. My first books were Egyptian historicals. I had so much fun researching the Victorian time period of Egyptian history when archaeology was extremely popular. I included a real historical character, Flinders Petrie, in The Falcon and the Dove, my first book. There’s a fun scene in Obsession, where I include excerpts from The Falcon and the Dove, as the heroine is reading it. Jessica is a werewolf who adores reading romance novels!

Q:  Do you prefer print or ebooks?

A:  Both! I do a lot of travel for the day job (I work for a charity and travel to places like Haiti and Honduras) so I read a lot on the plane. I also have a stack of books on my nightstand. But I love reading on my phone. I have both a Kindle app and a Nook app.
 
Q:  What’s next in your Werewolves of Montana series?

A:  Passion, the third Mating Mini, will be released next month. And I’m working on Redemption, the fourth Mating Mini, and The Mating ChallengeThe Mating Challenge is Aiden’s book. He’s the leader of the Mitchell pack in Montana, a very sexy alpha wolf who has been pursuing Nikita Blakemore, alpha female of the rival Blakemore pack. I’m planning to release Aiden’s book this summer. I already have the cover and if you “like” my Facebook page, you’ll see it posted there.

Q:  How can readers keep up with your latest releases?

A:  My website is www.bonnievanak.com and that’s where readers can sign up for my newsletter to receive updates on releases, plus there’s a link to a special Members Only page where I have two free short reads.  I update my Facebook page more frequently.
