Guest post with giveaway: Catching An Evil Tail by Mary Abshire

Catching an Evil Tail
You can probably guess from the title that the book involves some kind of shifter or werewolf, right? That was my goal when I came up with the title.
Catching an Evil Tail is the second book in the Soul Catcher series. When I started the series, I wanted to involve more creatures besides vampires and demons. My protagonist is half-demon and has the ability to send souls to Hell. Each book involves her sending some bad-ass soul to Hell where it should be, but she runs into problems.
I really like werewolves, so since the first one didn’t have any, I incorporated them into the second and fourth books. They’re sexy, strong, powerful, and very tempting. At least, the main one, the Alpha, Alan, is in my book. I wanted him to tempt her, and he does. The pool scene was a joy to write. And his tattoo… Come on, a werewolf has to have some kind of tribal tat, right? (Grinning)
Here’s a short excerpt from the book (my heroine and the werewolf she’s helping are in the pool):
I let go of the wall with one hand, and it slipped into the water. The temptation to touch his chest grew into an obsession. I wanted to trace my fingers along the dark edges of his tattoo and feel his warm flesh.
As if Alan could sense my desire, he grazed my shoulder with his hand. The soft touch spawned an increase in my pulse and drew my attention away from the artwork on his body.
“Demons can be troublesome. I hesitate to do business with any demon. But with you, I will make an exception.” His hungry gaze drifted and hovered over my chest.
My lips curved. I enjoyed his touch. It had been too long since a man had taken such a keen interest in me, not counting Jeremy. After six weeks without Drake, I yearned for a man to hold me, touch me, and love me.
“And is this business?” I asked, raising a brow. “You coming back here, knowing I was alone?”
His fingers glided down my arm and into the water. He grabbed my hand, lifted it, and placed it in the center of his chest. I stared at his hunky pecs and licked my lips. Beneath his warm skin, his heart thumped fast.
Brilliant green eyes stared at me. “No, this is not business. This is just the two of us getting to know each other without any distractions.”
His gaze strayed to my lips. My breath quickened; I sensed his arousal. He was so close to me. A few inches closer and I could kiss him. Struggling with the desire to touch his lips and taste him, I looked down at the artwork on his torso.
“This is an interesting tattoo.” I ran my palm over the smooth flesh. “Does it hold any special meaning for you?”
“Survival,” he said. “It started out on my arm and shoulder. Over the years, I have lengthened it.”
“Where does it end?” I asked.
“Right now, past my hip bone.” The corners of his lips curled. “Would you like to see the rest of it?”
Yes! Yes! Show me please, my inner demon screamed. “I, uh . . . .”
In one swift motion, he pressed his lips upon mine while his hard body flattened me against the wall. Desire flamed as his strength and energy flowed into me. I let go of the ledge, wrapped my arms around his neck, and curled my legs around his waist. His strong lips kept me glued to his while his delicious tongue—tasting of honey—explored mine. Under the water, his solid muscle pressed against me. Enjoying the feel of his hardness, I let a soft moan slip past my lips. His tongue delved deeper and with feverish strokes. God help me, I didn’t care about air. The demon part of me yearned for him and every bit of love he wanted to give.

    I love shifters of all kinds so I read a lot of werewolf books. I think my favorite werewolf is Charles Cornick from Patricia Brigg's Alpha/Omega series. He's strong and silent, yet so alpha and protective of Anna, his mate, and he's Native American and has a touch of shaman magic to go with his wolf. Just yummy all the way around (and I love Bran and Sam, his dad and brother, also).

    Max Savoire is my favorite werewolf from Nancy Gideon's Moonlight series. He is haunted by the death of his mother. He is also trying to figure out who he is when he met CeeCee. He was so good in following orders until he met her. He and CeeCee is on opposite side of the laws and they are trying to make their relationship work.

    He is also hunted by an unknown enemy(ies). Max is a very interesting characters.

    This is really hard as this is one of my favorite genres and to choose just one - mmmmmm. I am going to go with Sam Merlot from the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris and I do mean the Sam from the books not the TV show. In the books he is a tender caring guy that is strong and takes no guff. Thank you for sharing with us! I am looking forward to Catching an Evil Tail ;)
