Sparks fly when sassy firefighter Jilli meets her match in Amy K. McClung’s enemies-to-lovers romance. 

When Sam and Jillian meet, the snark and sparks start to fly. Despite their intense attraction, words and actions are misunderstood, and miscommunication is rife. Will their stubbornness be their downfall or the start of something extraordinary?

“Dance with me again?”
“Why?” No doubt she’s a tough one.
“Because I’d like to dance with you. No ulterior motives.”
After finishing off the fourth beer, she sighs and reaches out. The song changes to a slow romantic tune.
She eyes me curiously, her finger pointing upward as though the music floats above us. “Did you plan this?”
“I’ve been on the dance floor for the past four songs. How would I have planned it?” Pulling her against my body, I breathe in the sweet smell of vanilla on her skin. Long arms drape over my shoulders, and her hands press against my back. Each breath she takes draws my attention to her breasts. The temperature in the room heightens as our bodies sway together. Allowing my hands to travel down her naked back, I stop just above her ass. Her skin is so soft, so smooth. “You smell amazing,” I whisper against her ear.
“Thanks.” One word said in a way that might have given me pause if I couldn’t feel her body shiver. Her involuntary body language can’t be faked as easily as her tone. She wants me as much as I want her, that’s plain to see, but she’s fighting the attraction. “I need to go,” she says, pulling away from me just before the song ends. She hustles through the crowd and out the door.
“You can run, but I’m going to chase you,” I say to myself as I watch her go. There’s something special about her, and I’m not giving up so easily on finding out what it is.

New Release & Giveaway: Wolves' Gambit by P.J. MacLayne

Title: Wolves' Gambit 
Author: P.J. MacLayne
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: 15/04/2018
Series: The Free Wolves, Book 3 (stand-alone)
Cover Designer: K.M. Guth
Wolf-shifter Lori Grenville was rescued from near-slavery and a brutal pack leader by the Free Wolves. To pay back the favor, she's dedicated her life to helping others in the same situation, leading shifters to safety and a new start, risking her life in the process. She's faced down alphas and has no qualms in undermining pack structure. 

Now she's challenged with the task of restoring an alpha to his rightful place. If she gets it right, she can stop a war from ripping apart two packs and spreading across an entire state. If she fails, she'll be among the first to die.

There's still the option of walking away and letting the Jaeger and Destin packs destroy each other. That means she'll fail in her original mission of rescuing the daughter of the Jaeger alpha before the girl is forced into marriage for political gain.

Lori hasn't failed in a mission yet. This one may be the exception.
She didn't have time to shift. Instead, Lori threw herself to the ground and rolled. The wolf missed, but swiveled on its back paws, bunched its muscles, and prepared for a second attack. Without a weapon, she could only hold it off for a few seconds.
            So she did what any human would do. She screamed. Only she dropped the pretense and screamed with her mental voice. The sound of a rabbit's dying scream. The shrill, high-pitched cry for help didn't need to be aimed at only one person. It would wake everyone within range. There'd be a lot of headaches in a very short time.
            The wolf stopped in its tracks and shook its head. That was all the time Lori needed. A metal snow shovel had been left leaning against the building after the last snow months ago, and she grabbed it. She gripped it in both hands and swung.
            Her aim was true. The shovel thudded against the side of the wolf's head and it staggered. But Lori knew of a more vulnerable spot. She adjusted the direction of the next swing. The awkward angle resulted in a less forceful blow, but still, she hit the tender nose.
The wolf snarled, its teeth glistening, and leaped.
            She whirled out the way and swung the shovel at the same time. The blade met the wolf's front haunches. A cracking sound sent a chill down Lori's spine. The wooden handle was breaking. She'd only get one more hit. It had to be a good one.
            The wolf heard it too. Out of reach of her makeshift weapon, it paced, tongue hanging from its mouth. Left to right, right to left. Only Lori's eyes followed it. She watched for the telltale signs. The tightening of muscles, the focusing of the eyes, a lowering of the head. The wolf was toying with her. Her heartbeat kept pace with the wolf's steps. Too fast.
            But where was the guard? He'd had time to come to her rescue. Was this one of Carlson's men? She'd been a fool to trust him. He was just another pack leader. Take advantage of those less powerful and discard them when they are no longer useful.
            She wondered how sharp the edge of the blade was. Sharp enough to rip through flesh? There was no time to check. She needed to stay alert for every twitch.
            The charge happened in the blink of an eye. One second he was on the ground, the next flying towards her. She didn't wait. With a loud cry, she held the shovel straight in front of her like a lance and ran to meet the attack.

by P.J. MacLayne
Lori Grenville, the main character of Wolves' Gambit, sprang from a very minor character in Wolves' Pawn, the first book of the Free Wolves series. In fact, she existed for only about two pages. But those two pages were enough for me to see that she had potential for so much more. Turns out, she gets a whole book. 
At first I'd envisioned her as some sort of super spy. While that was a fun idea, it was wrong. Turns out she's a woman with a mission, and she'll do what it takes to get the job done. She sees herself as being on the side of good even if sometimes she needs to resort to actions that might be considered unethical. Or downright illegal. 
She's run rescues successfully many times. But this time she may be in over her head.

She wants to change the rules. He wants to play the role of protector. Together, Madison and Wyatt will gamble it all for love.

Despite her beauty and charm, Madison is single and a little lost in the bustle of Whiskey River. Declining a less-than-suitable offer from the town’s resident terror, Madison needs protection. Forget mail-order brides, she’s on a mission to discover a would-be husband.

Thousands of miles due east in New York City, debonair gambler Wyatt Nash is lucky in cards. He soon finds himself disenchanted by city life and those quick to accuse him of cheating. So, he decides to take off in search of happiness under the big open sky. What he finds will change his life forever.

Return to the wild frontier in the second installment of the ten-book series, Whiskey River Brides. Join Madison, Wyatt, and your favorite characters as they struggle to overcome loss, change, and discover the whispers of new love in this enchanting western world.

Poised, Samantha watched him for a moment. “There is a young lady in Whiskey River who is willing to pay for a mail-order husband.”
“Great.” Wyatt then asked, his brown eyes flaring, “So, why does she want a mail-order husband?”
She paused for a moment, taking him in. Wyatt felt as if she were studying him. “She’s being harassed by the owner of the saloon in town.”
Wyatt’s eyebrows pulled together in concern. “Why can’t someone arrest the man?”
Madame Chase shook her head. “I don’t think he’s done anything else that they could arrest him for, besides harassing her.”
Wyatt sat back. “So, she wants a husband to keep the guy at bay.”
She shrugged. “It’s probably not the wisest solution, but she feels it’s her only one.”
Wyatt stood up. “She needs someone to protect her.” He shook his head and headed toward the door. “I’m sorry, but I’m not your man.”
He was almost to the door.
“Wait!” Madame Chase yelled.
Wyatt froze, but didn’t turn to face her.
“Wouldn’t you like to see her picture?”
Wyatt moved his jacket to the side and placed his hand on his hip. “I’m not going to change my mind.” But a part of him already wanted to protect her, no matter what she looked like, and he wasn’t sure why. He shook his head as he forced a smile and walked back into the room. “You’re good.”
She shrugged. “It’s my business.” She picked up a photograph that Wyatt hadn’t noticed and handed it to him.
A part of him didn’t want to look, not wanting to be that superficial. But curiosity got the better of him. When he looked down at the black-and-white picture, bright eyes looked up at him and her hair was light. She was beautiful. He could imagine what she looked like in real life.
“Well, what do you think?” Madame Chase asked as a smile curled one side of her lips.
Wyatt lifted his eyes from the picture. “When do I leave?” He had never really thought of marrying anyone before, but he had said that he wanted a different life. An adventure. What better adventure than marriage?
Madame Chase handed him a file. “You will leave Saturday. It will take three days for you to arrive in Laramie, Wyoming. A man by the name of Colton Hill will meet you there and will take you to Whiskey River. Madison will pay for your expenses.”
“No,” Wyatt said as he looked at the file. “I am a gentleman, if nothing else, and I will not let a lady pay my expenses. I’ll even pay your fee, as well.”
Madame Chase smiled as she leaned her head to the side. “So be it. You have until Saturday to get your affairs in order. Will you be ready?”
He nodded once. “Yes. That will be fine. I’ll be ready.”
Madame Chase smiled. “I must ask you some questions.”
Wyatt sat back, waiting.
“For starters, what is your name?”
Wyatt smiled as he realized that he hadn’t properly introduced himself. “Forgive me. My name is Wyatt Nash.”
“And your profession?”
Wyatt sighed as he sat back. “I’m a gambler.”
Madame Chase nodded. “Sir, if I may be so bold, why are you doing this?”
Wyatt looked in her eyes. “As you heard in the saloon, I’m tired of this life; of people thinking I cheated them.”
Madame Chase’s eyes narrowed. “And do you? Cheat?”

He scoffed as his eyes narrowed. “I never cheated a man before in my life. I’m just the luckiest son of a bitch I know. Pardon the language.”
