I love this series and I recently had a stop for the first book CADE, but now I get to show you Simon, book two, in this magnificent series of Werewolf Brothers from NOLA. Now, there’s only a few days left for the giveaway of a signed copy of Simon, so let me show you the goodies so you can hurry and go try to win 🙂
NOTE: Complete novel. No cliffhanger. Dual POV. Rated 18+ for language and strong sexual content.
Four years of honorably serving his country has left Simon, Cade’s younger brother, damaged and trapped in wolf form. Little did he know the only person with the ability to heal him completely would be found at home. Literally. Now that he’s found her, he is desperate to claim her.
Rose is a beautiful, voluptuous woman with limited experience with men. Although she’s confident, she still has reservations. Never having a family of her own, her fear of abandonment has her fleeing romantic relationships, and doubting herself.
Travis is insane. A deadly loose cannon that a secret organization hired to destroy the Le Beau family by denying them their mates. Permanently.
Simon’s dream will be lost forever unless he is able to maintain human form.
Rose needs unconditional love and a mate to create the family she’s always wanted.
Travis’s all-consuming drive is to take Rose for himself.
Will Simon ever be whole again, able to claim his mate, giving Rose the love and family she so desperately craves? Or will Travis destroy them both?
She looked at him over her shoulder. His blue eyes seared her with heat and the intensity of his stare made her shiver. Lifting one hand, he laid his fingers against the blush of her cheek. Then he wrapped his arms around her from behind burying his nose in her hair and letting his wolf rumble in satisfaction. “I’m ready to show you off at Julia’s whenever you are.”
“Let me check my face and hair. It’ll only take a minute.” She returned a few minutes later looking amazing.
Her hair was pulled back in a fashionable messy bun. A single strand was left loose to fall down the side of her face to the tip of her breast. He longed to follow that strand to its destination, scrape his teeth against her nipple and inhale her precious scent.
She was without a doubt the most beautiful creature he’d ever seen in his life. As Rose placed her arms around his neck he relished how her warmth seeped into his body.
“I may have to change my mind, you look too good, and I’ll be forced to kill some idiot who tries to dance with you.”
She rolled her eyes at him and grabbed her purse. “Come on, Romeo, I’m ready for a boat ride and a turn around the dance floor.”
Simon held her hand as she got into the boat then jumped in and revved the motor. “I’ll go slow so I don’t mess up your gorgeous hair.” He winked.
She blew him a kiss and fluffed her hair dramatically.
Even going slow it only took twenty minutes to reach the pier serving the bar. He already heard the music and boisterous patrons. He cut the motor and helped her exit safely; boats weren’t designed for high heels.
Rose looked up and down the line of boat slips and shoreline. “Where’s her sign?”
“She doesn’t have one. We’d rather random humans didn’t wander in. Mates are more than welcome, but the occasional human to happen upon the bar isn’t very well received.”
He led her to an open table. “I’ll get us drinks, would you like wine or a whiskey Coke?”
“A whiskey Coke sounds great.” Her eyes were bright with excitement as she checked out the crowd.
Squeezing into an open spot at the bar, he waved over his cousin. “Julia! How are you, cher?”
“Oh, my god! Simon, it’s so good to see you. I heard you found your mate.”
“I did.” He gestured to their table. “Rose is seated right there, stop over if you get a break.”
“She’s a beauty. You’re a lucky man, cuz.”
“Don’t I know it.” he grinned. “Can I get a Whiskey Coke and a beer?”
He turned his back to the bar to check on Rose. Simon’s breath caught as she unconsciously moistened her lip with the tip of her pink tongue. That mouth was made for sin, with its plush lower lip. He imagined her mouth doing wicked things to a certain part of his anatomy. The blood thrummed in his veins. Simon turned to inconspicuously adjust himself, his faded jeans were suddenly way too tight. Her intoxicating scent of coffee and cinnamon rolls licked at his groin even from across the room. He wanted to rub himself all over her, saturating her with his scent whenever they were in public. His wolf wouldn’t be satisfied until they were mated.
Gazing at her across the room his blood surged, he imagined her naked on his bed, her thighs parted in invitation. If he concentrated he could actually recall the taste of her passion. There was nothing greater than loving her long into the night, her excited cries entwining with his hoarse groans as they made the bed shudder and shake. He shook his head. He really needed to get control of his randy thoughts. This was date night and he would show her a good time away from his bed for once. Down boy, he snarled at his wolf. When he glanced at her again she was snickering and shaking her head at him. He must be imagining loudly.
“Here you go, no charge, and congratulations, Simon.” Julia rapped her knuckles on the bar top before she turned her attention to making another customer’s drink. She was very busy, so he left her to it. He’d barely taken his seat when the band took the stage for another set. Standing, he held his hand out to Rose. “May I have this dance?”
“Why, yes, you may,” she said playing along.
Simon held her close enough to see the sparkles in her blue eyes. He loved the way her gaze lit up when she was happy. But his wolf itched to see her eyes dazed with passion as he made love to her, and then sated and sleepy afterwards. For now holding her on the dance floor would do. Rose’s intoxicating fragrance surrounded him, teasing his senses. He was in heaven.
Simon cupped her cheek with a large, warm palm. “I’m so happy you moved into our house, Rose. Having you in my arms makes me the luckiest man in the world.” The moment she agreed to move to his house he’d called it their home. His glowing blue eyes regarded her with a tenderness that made her breath hitch.
She tightened her arms around his neck, urging his face closer to hers. “I didn’t want to go back to Anna’s, to an empty bed anymore,” she told him. “If you really plan to have me as your mate, it only made sense.
“Just say the word and I’m yours completely. Forever.” He smiled, then dipped his head, kissed her deeply and nuzzled her.
This is the second of the series, though it could be read as a stand alone, I say you’d be missing out terribly if you didn’t read Cade 🙂 But anyways, you meet Simon for a moment in Cade’s book, and you get to see that he’s a little broken, or a lot broken. Being a shifter, when he joined the military, he lost contact with not just his pack, but also with other people. No one hugs or touches in the military, so his wolf caused him some major problems. Plus he couldn’t shift so staying human for so long has made him more than just withdrawn. It’s going to be a long while before he can pull all of his pieces back into the puzzle. 🙂
So, Anna is Cade’s mate, and she tries to help Simon heal a little of himself everyday, but it isn’t until Anna gets her friend Rose to come over for Thanksgiving with the family that Simon literally wakes up. In an amazing moment, Simon realizes that Rose is his mate and he’s not stuck between making her officially his mate, and staying far away from her because his wolf is a little out of control. He wants to be the man she needs, not the broken shifter he is. But he is eventually going to realize that Rose doesn’t care that he’s got a past, or is broken, because she has her own issues and her own past.
Rose is quite amazing. When you learn her past, you’ll want to hug her, and be so proud that she has even made it this far. She’s got a few insecurities, but Simon is going to help her get over those, all she has to do is let him in to help her. She’s not quite the kick ass heroine that most people would think, but I am so happy that she learned how to be kick ass. You see, there’s these were people who have been stalking her, and when they finally catch up with her, she is very not so gently introduced to the world of supernaturals. Like werewolves and vampires, and she’s a little freaked out. But, she’s a champ about it, and she’s a great match for Simon.
The plot was well done. It’s not just taking Rose, but it’s now opening up the larger plot scheme that will affect all the Le Beau family, and this is changing things. I know we’ve met Stefan and Marcus, but now, we need to meet a few more of those other brothers LOL. I absolutely cannot wait for book three 🙂 And in the meantime, I think you should all check out the first two. Ms Dold has a wonderful way of writing, and thank goodness that she doesn’t make the people from Louisiana, like myself, sound like ignorant idiots. So, what are you waiting for, go get your now! 5 Extra HAWT Wolfy PAWS!!
