To Claim a Mate by Jennifer Denys
About the Book:
Cole Linley is a gay wolf-shifter. In order to appease the Alpha within, he has taken up the BDSM lifestyle and become very experienced. This placates his wolf to a certain extent, but his dearest wish is to find a mate—male, of course. Except, the question is, how to find one in a city surrounded by humans where other wolf-shifters are rare.
Then, one night, he enters Balls & Chains, a BDSM club he frequents, and immediately senses another of his kind. And not only that, it is the scent of a potential mate, Jared Gray. There is only one problem—Jared is collared by another Master.
Jared’s relationship shows all the signs of an abusive relationship. Can Cole get him away from the other Dom and show Jared the delights of BDSM when done properly and what it means to be a beta wolf to Cole’s Alpha?
Reader Advisory: The submissive in this Gay Paranormal Romance doesn’t realize he is in an abusive relationship until he meets his true Master.
Moving on, Cole was drawn into a room which had a cross in each corner of the room with plenty of space to wield the equipment. The walls were covered with floggers of varying types, although nothing stopped a Dominant using an implement from another section.
Cole halted. He’s here.
The scent was at its strongest, practically dragging him toward a slender man in his late twenties, with brown hair the color of hazelnuts. The sub was in the process of being tied face up against a cross on the far side. His chest was bare and sleek, and he wore skin-tight jeans.
The Dom wanted to rip the man’s clothes off and devour him on the spot. So intent was he on reaching his prey, he nearly missed the Master who had finished tying the submissive and came around to inspect the restraints, standing directly between Cole and the object of his hunt.
Stopping in his tracks, Cole’s hackles began to rise. A possessive instinct rose in him to fight off his rival. Except there were rules in BDSM and it didn’t include tearing out the throat of another Master.
Andy caught up with him and saw him staring. “Who have you found? Oh, this is Master Dirk. Jared is the sub he is playing with.”
Cole took a moment to calm his inner wolf, unclenching his fists before he triggered his claws. His voice was raspy as he asked, “Are they new? I don’t recall seeing either of them here before.” Actually, he couldn’t care less about this new Master. He only had eyes for Jared.
He didn’t hear Andy’s answer, because, at that moment, he caught the gaze of the bound man. Tangible electricity crossed the room and hit Cole like a silver bullet, slamming into his heart, nearly causing him to change into his wolf in front of everyone. It took everything he knew about Dominance to keep hold of his human side and push down his animal half.
Meanwhile, the submissive’s eyes opened wide in shock, and he bit his lip. Cole’s keen wolf eyesight could detect Jared’s fierce trembling, as he tightly gripped the ropes that held him. Cole willed him to hold on and not transform in front of everyone as the two shared a look of instant attraction, desperate need, and the desire to have sex.
And yet it was more than that. So much more—an inner knowledge, assurance one has finally found one’s other half, and didn’t even know one was looking.
Taking a deep breath, Cole narrowed his eyes as he gazed on Jared, drinking in the beautiful sight before him.

I was more than ready to go at the 24-hour point. The Blushing Books RT pre-conference was happening in Atlanta and I'd moved a lot of pieces to make sure I was in the mix. Friends I only knew from online, fellow authors I admired, and author friends I haven't seen in months were all going to be in the same place and for the same purpose, and I had zero intention on missing out.
Many of us have day jobs, alternate egos that adult in a different way and on a different level, but for a creative spirit like me that persona is often drained at this point in the year. This journey was a renewal of energy, and spirit. It was my time to learn, instead of teach.
We started with the Blushing Authors meet and greet:
Followed by a late night dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe!
The next day was all about the craft of writing books, selling books, and promoting books. Everything was geared toward making us all better. An added bonus was the stimulating conversation about grammar, which took on a whole new meaning when the sample sentences had words like "spanking" and "orgasm" in it!
Day 2 brought guest speaker, Kathryn Falk, who was a delight, full of charming stories and advice for the next direction in romance writing. We enjoyed dinner at a local southern restaurant where we stuffed our selves with catfish, fried chicken, peach cobbler, and sweet tea.
Some of us even managed a game night sleepover, where a Mulan sing along took place. Yup, that happened. It was a whirlwind four days, with almost the same number of days spent in the air, but worth every hour.
Enjoy the pictures, loves!

About the Novel:
Married to Jason Lucas, Gemma is handling how to be the wife of a millionaire. In a moment of foolishness, she makes an error of judgement; an act she regrets and she must face the consequences that tumble on afterwards.
Jason married for love, but will he be able to give his wife the romance she desires? His passion to be her Dominant remains strong but can he find a way to meld romance and dominance? After an event leaves him worried for Gemma's safety, he has the idea to take her to New York City. He asks her to submit to a week of escapism involving domination and submission, bondage and kinky sex. Will she agree to trust him and will she survive his style of domination for the duration?
Most importantly - will their love survive the retribution that awaits them upon their return?
Both characters are sexy and know what they want. Neither are novices. One takes control and the other yields. In the bedroom, there are the erotic scenes of BDSM, discipline and romance. The dynamic can be intoxicating—and dangerous.
Jason returned, carrying what he needed. Seeing his wife kneeling, eyes closed and patiently waiting, he paused to admire her demureness. The pose was like a beacon—she was mindful of his intentions, his expectations. His thumping heartbeats reminded him of her trust in him—she could have refused to submit and gone to bed. However, that wasn’t the case, she’d prepared herself for him, and for that he was grateful.
“Stand up,” he commanded.
She rose as gracefully as possible and lifting her head, she focused on the scissors in his hand.
“I suspect,” he said quietly, but with pronounced articulation, “that this is a ridiculously expensive dress. I don’t want you to wear it again. I want to keep a memory of it; a memory of tonight.” The way she looked, everything was a snapshot in time, one of many he hoped to create, but this one needed a conclusion, something befitting the occasion—he chose to strip the glamour away.
He gently pushed her backwards onto a table, letting her rest her shoulders on the surface. With slow precision, he began to cut the dress away, starting with the bottom hem, aiming the blades for her cleavage, carefully.
“Keep still I don’t want to cut you,” he whispered when she shivered.
If Gemma was anxious—she didn’t like blades—her trust in him remained solid. She tempered her breathing so that her breasts rose and fell in a shallow pattern, aiding the passage of the scissors. Slowly the fabric split apart to reveal her skimpy underwear and strapless bra.
Jason then snipped through the shoulder straps just above each breast. Once he had completed his dissection, he threw the scissors away to one side, took the two dress halves and peeled them away from her shoulders and arms. Standing back he drank in the splendour of his Gemma’s salacious body.
But only briefly. He ached to be inside her and the urgency was nearly unbearable. He grasped her wrists, pinned them to either side of her head and bent so he could look upon her wide eyes and flushed face, the rise of pink about her cheeks and neck. If things got too much for her, she would show him in her eyes and he would stop—it would be difficult, but he knew he could if he had to.
“Beautiful,” he murmured. “I have to admit to being a little jealous this afternoon. All those men coveting you with their eyes. Most displeasing for me. So I’m going to fuck you here, in this marquee, where all those licentious men roved their eyes over you. Because you are mine.”
