The morning looked promising. Keagen was on the road, traveling to a small town he’d never heard of. Filled with elation, thoughts of catching his prey made him smile. There was no need to rush. Despite his need to snag the escapee, he took a leisurely drive. Intel he received advised of a stranger who’d set up house in DeALTERNATECOVER with FWP logo FBwburn Falls, and was deemed a ‘badass.’

Keagen smirked. There’s a new player coming to town. Move over badass.

Relaxing into the soft leather seat of the BMW 328i, one of Keagen’s favorite rides, he took in the scenery and thought about his plan of action. Meticulously organized, he always had a fallback plan. He wasn’t at home being Mr. Cock-up, and hated if someone fucked up, which wasn’t too often as he mostly worked alone. Forced to team up on one occasion, it didn’t go well, resulting in a few deaths. Kicking off, Keagen said it was either his way, or he was retiring, which was funny considering they owned him; despite his reluctance to admit it. While he was comfortable, he’d put up with their shit and continued along his merry way. Doing their dirty work. With access to fast cars, the best weaponry, some not even on the market officially, and recreation time to fuck, life was good. He wanted it to continue.

His mind took him back to when it wasn’t so pleasurable, and his hands tightened around the steering wheel as he growled. While he didn’t have many memories remaining, he knew it wasn’t good. Faded scars on his body were the only reminders of his childhood, since Solgen wiped his memory. It was the standard protocol to start with a clean mind, and easier. Still perfecting the procedure, the scientists had made a few errors, but Keagen was their most successful guinea pig. Receiving top marks in all the tests, he confirmed loyalty to the company and, therefore, was allowed to leave the compound. At first, he was under supervision, but that had soon changed. After excelling in each mission within a few months, his reputation soared. Managing a hundred percent retrieval rate, with a required eighty percent coming in alive, he was the top dog. The twenty percent died because they resisted captureAVATAR FOR AUTHOR PAGE and return back to the labs. Keagen was strong. At the start of his hunting career, he didn’t know his own strength. Rarely bringing home a dead one these days, he’d learned to master his body and the enhancements.

See what the readers think.

OMG! I simply can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in this series! Ms.Nicholls characters are always smoking hot men with brains, brawn and a slightly twisted sense of humor. Along with a tiny vulnerability that makes you love them, even with their faults. The women in this book kicks ass. I love the plot and am so EXCITED for the next one. This series is COMPLETELY different from her Demon series, both are 5 stars. One of the best authors, especially if your looking for hot sex, luscious men, strong kick ass ladies and a fast paced read! You will not regret a book by Julie Nicholls, EVER! EITHER series.

Julie Nicholls is a magician when it comes to the written word because Blood Ties is ABRACA…DAYUM! I love Keagan’s “I’ve forgotten more dirty tricks than you’ll ever know” attitude and how he and Gabriel bring balance to each other’s lives. I identify with the square peg in a round hole life that Keagan, Gabriel, Alyssa and Ghost lead either by experiment or birth. She has erotica down to an art form. Julie’s books are roller coaster rides. Your emotions and imagination pushed to the limits! She literally puts you in the middle of the action. I wanted to be in the passenger seat of Keagen’s car, speeding down the highway. Driving straight into the unknown at the side of a smoking hot badass to the core alpha male! I didn’t want this on the edge of my seat book to end!
I’ve followed Ms. Nicholls writing career from the beginning and she never disappoints. Her stories are exciting and captivating. Julie’s instincts for knowing exactly what a reader is looking for are always on point.
Forget pins and needles…I’ll be on a bed on nails waiting for the next installment of this trilogy!

This book is a wee bit different than what many paranormal shifter books offer.

You get to follow Lyssa and Gabriel as they are put in danger because of Gabe’s past. A world of trouble is headed their way as a hunter who has Gabes DNA is on his way to bring him back to the labs he was held captive in. You also get to meet the ever so sexy (and cocky) Keagen and fascinating Ghost. The action is packed in with twists and turns through the story too keep your mind guessing who exactly is the bad guy and who is truly good.

You’ll find yourself hoping a certain character is killed off then wondering why you would ever think that the next chapter. My emotions have been on an up and down train ride and then you get left with a slight cliff hanger that makes you wanna ask….

Soooo…about that second book in their series? Is it ready yet?

Blood ties is currently in production for an audio book…narrated by the fabulously talented actor, Scott Richard Ehredt.

Blood Ties is a paranormal/shifter/romance story.

Meet K 3 4 G E N – He’s not quite human.

Sweat ran down Keagen’s muscular back as he pressed the female against the wall. His rock-hard body, with perfect proportions and stamina that would outlast a stable of thoroughbred racehorses, was nowhere near to flagging. He’d pounded the woman for the last hour, nonstop. The female on the receiving end of his attention cried herself hoarse more than twenty minutes earlier. She needed to rest, but large hands cupped her ass, supporting her weight, and only when he’d had enough would he let her down.

With the air-con turned up high the smell of fresh sweat and sex hung in the air. Keagen loved to fuck; he had some catching up to do after his sex-starved existence for the first part of his adult life. Puffing out a few quick breaths, he built up his pace. He was ready for a beer and wanted the woman out of his room.

Keagen was tall, muscular, and stronger than most men were, although he wasn’t exactly a man. His genes were human DNA with a hint of animal, courtesy of Solgen Laboratories. It wasn’t common knowledge what the company did, and their labs were all in secret locations. Only their financial backers knew where they were. Who supported them was unclear. Possibly the government, private military organizations, or even wealthy dictators; no one knew. You would not find any documentation about it. It wasn’t legal what they were doing, that’s for sure.

Keagen tracked and hunted escapees and always caught his prey, but just one eluded him, and it pissed him off. Nevertheless, he was closing in, and soon he’d return to base with his prize in tow. Given free reign to come and go as he pleased, Keagen enjoyed the freedom, and as long as he brought in the bounty, all was well. Sometimes out in the field for days or weeks at a time, he upheld contact by phone; a check-in, but he wasn’t worried. Sometimes he needed ‘Keagen’ time. Holed up at his secret hideaway, or a motel, where a steady stream of females frequented his room, he could easily fob off his supervisor. The geneticists made the mistake of giving him just a little too much intelligence. Consequently, his IQ already rivaled some of the top minds in the world, and he was smart enough to hide that fact from his testers.

Grunting and hissing through gritted teeth, Keagen screamed his orgasm as he fucked the flagging woman; those last deep thrusts into her satisfied pussy filling the room with a guttural cry. Throwing his head back, his wet hair slapped against his shoulders. The muscles in his thighs held the female firmly against the wall for a few moments until his hips finally stilled and finished jerking. Catching his breath, he rested his head against the cool plaster before releasing the sighing woman. As she tried to stand her knees buckled, but he quickly scooped her up and laid her on the bed.

Meet Gabriel – Lycan

It was quiet in the smoke-filled bar. Just the gentle humming from the waitress broke the silence. Drew’s was a rundown place where the locals piled in after work. Mostly hanging out for just a few drinks to wind down before heading home, they used it as a stopgap, preparing for more stress from either home life, or a second job. There were the regulars who propped up the bar day and night. Jack, one of the old-timers, spent all his time drooling over the young women as they tended bar. Occasional delivery trucks would hole up in the parking lot and the drivers would drop in for coffee, just to keep from falling asleep on long hauls. Smokey and dark, subdued lighting with wood paneling covering the walls and an unvarnished wooden floor, it was a place to relax and ponder.

Gabriel was a regular and sat at the end of the bar in his usual place. From his vantage point, he could view the entire room. He didn’t have children or work to unwind from, but still enjoyed a cool beer. Without turning his head, the washroom and entrance were all visible. He could see everyone come and go with ease. Sitting quietly, he’d listen. Unless someone started the conversation first, he’d barely speak, but take in everything.

The quiet town appealed to Gabriel. Moving here just over a year ago, he settled in easily and found a place to stay. After renovating a cabin just on the edge of town, it gave him the seclusion he desired. He could take a short drive into suburbia and have everything he needed before returning to the solace he preferred. He kept to himself and avoided confrontations. Causing trouble wasn’t in his nature. However, he came over as someone who didn’t take crap, and he would let small annoyances slide until he reached a breaking point, then you didn’t want to be around to see the fall out. On a few occasions, Gabriel let people know he wasn’t someone they should fuck with, earning him respect shortly afterward. In sleepy town bars, there’s always someone dropping by to stir up the calm. Stepping in to deal with troublemakers made him the resident bouncer. There was never any exchange of cash; he didn’t need a regular job. He just did it. Drew made sure he never went thirsty and all drinks were on the house for keeping the place brawl-free, which suited Gabriel. The more beer, the better, and he didn’t like having his peace and quiet disturbed; it was a win-win situation.

Watching Lyssa brought out his more human characteristics; he’d not always had those. A year ago, he was nothing more than a caged animal. He tried not to think about the past, but occasionally something would trigger his thoughts.

Taking a mouthful of beer, he watched everyone and everything. Casually watching Jack eye up the sweet piece of ass, he grinned. He’d been close, and was still working on getting closer. Never short of female attention, Gabriel made up for lost time as soon as he broke free from his captors. There wasn’t a huge choice of pussy in Dewburn Falls, but quality, not quantity was the issue here. Lyssa would succumb to him, eventually. Women couldn’t resist him. He was astounded she’d lasted this long; he had a feeling she’d be worth the wait. Continuing his advances and hoping for a victory soon, Lyssa proved an interesting challenge.

He wasn’t sure if it was luck, or fate, that brought him here, but finding two female lycans was a surprise. Taking a drink, he smiled as his thoughts turned to Sally. He’d been in town only two weeks and gotten lucky with her.

Double Crossed is the 5th book in the Garrett Investigation Bureau Series though is in fact the 6th book due to the prequel ‘Hidden Agenda,” which is the third book I wrote.  Confused…Yeah I’m good like that.

Double Crossed is about Jones a man of mystery who has been around for a long time.  I would call him a Double Agent, others might call him a Slave serving a Master.  Who is he really and what does he have to do to get his life in order.

Following him and a team of security & agents though time, torture, paranormal and even a cult to see if his life is worth saving.  Can he be a hero after all.

SNEAKY PEEK FROM BLOOD TIES

Hey Peeps,

I know I keep saying Blood Ties is coming…and I promise it is! The first book in this new Paranormal-romance series is currently with the editor and I hope to have a release date in another week or so.

The chances are it will be a Jan 2016 release, so stay tuned because I’ll be putting it up on offer for the first few days. In the mean time, here’s a sneaky peek…just to wet your appetite.blood ties banner gabriel

(I still can’t show you the cover yet, but I will… soon!)

Gabriel squeezed her tighter; growling softly as her hand smoothed across his chest and lower. He made her happy, which in turn, made him happy, and so everything was right with the world. Not expecting to find a female like him when he left his family, he often thought about his past life. Leaving the pack when he was just 20 his life could have been different if he’d stayed. He thought he knew it all. How wrong he was.

Distracted by slender fingers unzipping his jeans, Gabriel quickly returned from the past, and groaned when Lyssa’s warm hand palmed his hardening cock. Despite wanting to hold onto her virginity for a little longer, Lyssa wasn’t stingy with other pleasures and loved to get Gabriel off with either her hand or mouth. Watching while he palmed his cock, she teased him with exploring fingers on herself, was a personal favorite for both. Often Gabriel had commented it drove him crazy. Shown something he couldn’t have, yet receiving something else to soothe the ache, was exciting. He knew one day she’d want more and each time they played, and that time grew closer.

Gabriel rolled Lyssa onto her back and smothered her mouth with his in a deep, branding kiss. He excelled at everything, and kissing with perfectly formed lips was his specialty. Of course, his tongue came a close second, and Lyssa wondered how she had resisted him for so long once he started licking her. This would be her undoing. When he worked on that one spot with his fingers and his tongue, she was close to submitting.

Gabriel’s kiss warmed her throughout, and she mewed against his open mouth as he drew nearer for another panty-wetting kiss, and it didn’t take long for her leg, draped over his hip, to start pulling against him.

 

 

ANOTHER SNEAKY PEEK …

Hey peeps,

I’m banging away at the first book in a new paranormal romance series, and I will reveal the title soon.

For now, I thought you’d like to meet the two main characters… both hot males… one is a lycan, the other is a genetically enhanced human.

You ready?

Keagen swaggered closer. “What? You don’t recognize me?” He paused a short distance away from Gabriel and smirked. “I’m hurt.”

There was a moment of silence as Gabriel studied his visitor. Narrowing his eyes, he still couldn’t put his finger on his scent, and yet, he felt he should know him. There was no recollection of this man’s face in his memory and he could only assume it was a ruse.

“I think you’re in the wrong place. I don’t know you, and if you call me bro, one more time, I’ll rip out your tongue.” Gabriel was deadly serious.

Keagen chuckled and shook his head. “Aw, you’re hurting my feelings. Where’s the happy family reunion?” He gave Lyssa a nod as she walked to Gabriel’s side. “Hey, princess.”

With a surprised glare, Gabriel turned slowly to look at Lyssa. “You know him?”

“Yeah, sort of, he came into the bar earlier.” She shrugged her shoulders as if it was no big deal. “So, Gabriel’s the family you came to visit?” She asked Keagen before  turning back to Gabriel and frowned. “You said you didn’t have any family.”

“I don’t.” He replied curtly.

Rarely would Lyssa question Gabriel, but he’d always maintained he had no living family. “So, why is he calling you bro?”

Cover reveal coming soon… and I will be giving half-price vouchers to peeps who subscribe to my email list on this days release… stay tuned.
