GIVEAWAY: The Perfect Book Setting by Paige Tyler

From the very first time hubby and I visited New Orleans and met a man wearing a set of permanently attached vampire fangs, we knew the city was a little different…in the best possible way. You spend any time at all in NOLA and you can’t help but pick up one simple fact—New Orleans is special. There’s an ambience there that’s hard to find anywhere else we’ve ever been.

Walking around the city, you can feel the age and history of the place, see all the unique people and cultures coming together to create an amazing melting pot where you can imagine nearly anything being possible. And if by some chance you’re looking for a place to base a paranormal story, you’d be hard pressed to do better than New Orleans where you can practically feel the magic in the air the second you walk down the street.   

So, when we started writing the Special Wolf Alpha Team (SWAT) Series about a pack of sexy alpha werewolves working as SWAT officers in the Dallas Police Department, we knew we had to give one of those characters a New Orleans backstory. A werewolf from New Orleans? There should probably be a law requiring it!

When we began writing WOLF HUNT, the newest book in the Special Wolf Alpha Team (SWAT) Series, it was amazing how quickly the city itself sucks you in. Typically, you have to dedicate a couple pages to setting up the city environment a story takes place in, but with New Orleans, all you have to do is toss in a few words like Bourbon Street, jazz and blues, Mississippi River, beignet and chicory coffee, and BAM (see what I did there all you Emeril Lagasse fans!) the reader is instantly transported there with the hero and heroine.

In WOLF HUNT, werewolf hero Remy Boudreaux goes back home to face his past, and reunites with his high school crush, Triana Bellamy. The city quickly becomes a supporting character in their romance as a hurricane slowly moves toward the city, tossing their hearts around much the same way it does the muddy waters of the Mississippi.

You could never get that kind of background feeling in another city. New Orleans made WOLF HUNT a book you’ll have a hard time putting down, and an even harder one forgetting.

Guest Post: Paige Tyler’s Favorite Character From HER TRUE MATCH

Her True Match Paige Tyler

That’s easy. It’s Trevor Maxwell, the snarky, occasionally inappropriate coyote shifter whose been showing up in the X-OPS Series here and there.

Trevor was originally only going to have a bit part in Her True Match, even though his book is coming up next in the series. But then he got involved in checking out a possible hybrid research facility in Maine, and from there, things got a little bit out of hand.

Much of this had to do with the fact that the Department of Covert Operation (DCO) needed to get one of their agents into a psychiatric facility to see if there were some evil people up there trying to cook up a new batch of hybrids. The critical issue at hand here is that the DCO thought the best way to get someone deep inside the facility was if that person needed to be committed. When it came to finding someone who could pull off that role easily, it was Trevor.

Not too sure what that says about him.

Guest Post: “10 Ways Lacey and Alex Celebrate the Holidays!” by Paige Tyler

Wolf Unleashed Paige Tyler

In my newest release Wolf Unleashed (SWAT Series), we get to see how Lacey Barton, veterinarian by occupation, heroine by nature, becomes The One true love for Dallas Police Department SWAT Officer—and werewolf—Alex Trevino. Their story will make you laugh, cry, sigh, and completely fall in love with them.

Now that Lacey and Alex are together, and she’s officially part of The Pack, here are ten things on their holiday to-do list!

  1. This will be Lacey and Alex’s first Christmas together, so they’ll spend the morning lazing around the apartment treating themselves to breakfast in bed, then exchange gifts.
  1. Later, they’ll head over to spend the day with the extended Pack family at the SWAT compound, along with their two dogs, Tuffie and Leo, for Christmas dinner. That means lots of food on the grill with some smokers and deep-fryers to boot. Werewolves eat a lot, so there are going to be enough turkey, burgers, hot dogs, and barbecue to feed an army.
  1. A party at the SWAT compound wouldn’t be a party without playing some volleyball. Alex and the other guys are going to need some exercise to burn off all those extra calories, right? Since it’s Christmas, it’s probably going to be cold outside, but something tells me the SWAT hunks will be taking their shirts off anyway.
  1. After the game, they’ll head inside to exchange presents with family and friends, which now includes the entire extended SWAT family. Because there are so many people, the gifts are typically small, but meaningful.
  1. While Lacey isn’t off from work and the veterinary clinic is closed for the holiday, after the party, she and Alex stop by to check on the animals to make sure they’re all doing okay.
