My blog tour stop with Vanessa Vaughn

Links to buy Miss Vaughn's book.


When Jack is attacked by a powerful werewolf one moonlit night, his world is forever changed.

Marcus is that wolf, the strong leader of his pack, who never imagined a mere mortal could ever escape him, much less ever become one of his kind. And yet, as time passes, he can't deny the handsome human is slowly beginning to change.

No longer the civilized architect he used to be, Jack feels a new power coalescing inside of him. He barely even recognizes himself as he becomes more sexual, more impulsive, more wild in every way.

But as the bite transforms him, it also binds he and his attacker together forever. The two share a powerful unbreakable link, no matter how forcefully they may each try to deny it.
Marcus is already hiding secrets from the other wolves, and his position as Alpha is threatened. Could Jack be the new ally Marcus needs to set things right, or will their desire for one another draw them away from all they know and alter the course of their lives forever?

Exerpt (Page 1):

     The moon.

     That soft sensual glow is always with me. Even when I can’t see the night sky, I feel its dark caress.
     As the moon’s phases change, it breathes a coy suggestive whisper in my ear. It presses close, and I feel its fingers brush my skin. That light sparks something inside of me. Something primal. It starts a fever somewhere deep and spreads like slow-burning fire through my limbs.
     I can always sense the Change starting. The full moon’s strong hand curls around my throat. I feel its grip tighten like a man’s thick fingers on my neck. When that grip makes me suddenly lightheaded, my pulse quickens, and I sink quietly to my knees. I know I have to give myself over, and I know how impossible it is to resist.
     Some humans dream about submission. They crave it, complete with soft tortures and the smooth caress of expensive leather. They want to be bound and made to feel wonderfully, blissfully helpless. They enjoy feeling compelled to give in.
     Humans like to play with their toys.
     But what do they know about pleasure and pain so naturally intertwined?
     When the animal in me takes over, I feel sensations more intense than any whip could offer. My teeth descend to sharp lethal points against my tongue, and I feel the lovely, horrifying ache as bones lengthen and skin is stretched.
     But that ache only makes me smile.
     In that instant of agony, my instincts wash over me like a hard drug flooding my veins.
Desire takes over—the desire for sex and for the hunt—obscuring all logical thought, all worries,absolutely all guilt. I feel ecstasy as I flex my teeth and claws. I feel a need building urgently and unstoppably between my legs with an intensity that few experience.

     So, you see, as the gut-wrenching agony of the Change grips me, so does the all-consuming pleasure.
     Perhaps that is why we wolves prefer our hunts so vicious.
     And our sex so rough.


Chocolate or vanilla?
Chocolate!!! Always chocolate!
Do you prefer long hair or short on men?
DVD's or cinema?
There is a beautiful old historic cinema in my town, complete with a balcony and scrollwork along the ceiling and big velvet curtains on either side of the screen. I love going there when they are showing an old black and white movie like Casablanca or Sunset Boulevard. That's how those films were meant to be seen.

George Clooney or Brad Pitt?
Brad Pitt! I love him because he's gorgeous but he doesn't always choose to play the handsome hero. A lot of the time he plays very evil twisted characters, and I love that. He isn't afraid to take a lot of risks with his acting with films like 12 Monkeys.
Team Edward or Team Jacob?
Team Jacob! Werewolves all the way! (But if I had to choose a vampire, it would be Eric from True Blood!)
Who was your favorite band when you were 17?
I've always been a loyal Madonna fan. At 17, my love of Madonna was probably combined with a little Spice Girls and a little Janet Jackson. Right now my obsession is Lady GaGa. I love larger than life female stars.
If you could be anyone throughout history for a day, who would you be and why?
Doesn't matter as long as she is famous and living in the lap of luxury. (laughs)
