Psst, if you’re reading this, don’t let Rhian (RC) know I posted it. She’s a little crazy strict. If she knew I were busy on my blog and not working on my current book, she’d beat get very angry with me. So don’t tell her. Okay?
She’s a funny one, that Rhian. She looks so sweet (Tall, slim, legs that won’t quit), then she opens her mouth, and you know she’s anything but. Read her books, and well, let’s just say sweet is about the last word you’d use to describe them.
Hawt, passionate, sexy, emotional… A million other words would go down better. Yep, RC may not be sweet, but she’s the kinda lady you want on your side, and her books are the kind you want on your eReader. They’re all keepers.

This woman is a wonder, and I’ve come to love her loads.I’ve come to love her books too, from her short, hot flings at Noble Romance, to her new, blockbusting Coyote Hunger Series at Ellora’s Cave.
I’m probably going to give her another reason to beat get angry with me, but it just so happens, I have a copy of her as yet, unpublished, brand new book, Coyote Wild (The second in the Coyote Hunger Series.) and I am about to post a leetle snippet for you. Just a very leetle one, but the most nb one – her opening page!
Oh, and if you’re wondering if the book’s worth reading, well, do me a favor – and judge it by it’s exquisite cover:
Coming From Ellora’s Cave on June the 18th
Book Two in the Coyote Hunger series.
Brogan Wilder knows all about animal urges. As a coyote shifter, he’s lived with them all his life but he’s never experienced the bone-deep hunger Eloise Crawford elicits. Claiming a mate is one thing. Claiming one who’s human and has no idea shifters exist is another matter altogether. In El, he’s found his destiny. Now he just has to convince her they are meant to be together.
A visit to help her best friend with wedding plans seems like just the kind of relaxation El is after. But once she arrives, there’s nothing relaxing about the reaction she has to her friend’s brother. Suddenly her senses are on high alert and she’s drawn to him in a way she finds nothing short of terrifying. But there’s more to this man than his golden eyes and magical touch. There’s something else. Something not exactly human.
Accepting her fate should have been the difficult part, but when El finds herself the target of an outraged pack member, the true struggle begins.
Need slammed into Brogan Wilder like a two-by-four to the gut. He knew lust, dealt with it when it rose, but this…
This was unlike anything he’d ever experienced. The beast inside chafed at the chains of restraint, snarled and snapped to be let free.
Brogan searched the room but nothing he could see should have him ready to shift. His sister, Rowan sat on the sofa, his best friend and her fiancé beside her. They were the only others in the room. The fine hairs on the back of his neck stood at attention and the blood in his veins heated and pumped harder. Whatever had his instincts screaming to take, to possess, had moved closer.
Skin grew tight and hot as he fought with his inner beast. Shifting wasn’t an option. Not yet. First he needed all his human skills to determine what had the power to do this to him. Then he’d have to decide if it was friend or foe. He sniffed the air, tried to place the feminine scent teasing his senses. It wasn’t Rowan or any other female he knew.
“For pity’s sake, Brogan, sit down. You’re making me nervous and I know you’re all bark and no bite. If you don’t relax you’ll scare El right back to Australia.” Rowan’s words broke into his agitated thoughts.
“What?” He tried to focus on his sister and what she was saying.
“Eloise. She’ll be coming down from her room any minute and I want you to be on your best behavior. It took months of nagging and pleading to get her to agree to come out for the wedding. I want her to enjoy herself and not regret saying yes.”
Rowan pushed off the lounge and came to stand beside him. Placing her hand on his arm she said, “Please, Brogan. She’s the best friend I’ve had since Gordie, the only friend. She likes me. Not Brogan’s sister.”
Brogan looked at her. She was all grown up, ready to face her destiny but not without scars. They all had them but Rowan would have more if it wasn’t for Eloise Crawford. He knew their friendship had been what kept his sister from going mad the few years she’d been forced to live away from home. He sucked in a deep breath and let it out slowly.
“Okay, I’ll try. But something’s got the beast’s hackles up and I can’t figure out what.” He’d never hidden any of the ugly side of who or what he was from Rowan and he wouldn’t do it now.
A musical voice with a strange sultry accent came at the instant his beast went on red alert and yanked at Brogan’s control.
He couldn’t keep the growl inside, or stop the change in his eyes that Rowan wouldn’t miss. If Brogan’s instincts were right, his mate had just stepped into the room.
