My story, The Talented Mr. MacGregor, takes place in Tarker’s Hollow BEFORE the events of Curse of the Alpha, and during J.D. MacGregor’s brief time as stand-in alpha of the Tarker’s Hollow pack. You’ll see a few familiar faces in this tale, as well as meeting a few more Tarker’s Hollow residents.
Because these sets are erotic romance, this novella has a higher heat level and a lower romance level than what you might have come to expect from me! I hope you’ll enjoy it!
Here is an excerpt. The story takes place at a Wild West Murder Mystery Dinner Party taking place at Thayer mansion...
From The Talented Mr. MacGregor: A Steamy Tarker's Hollow Mystery
Once he settled into a nice corner of the sitting room with a glass of wine in his hand, Mac felt right at home. Mac felt right at home just about anywhere these days – a welcome side effect of taking over as alpha.
The Thayer mansion was certainly grand, but it wasn’t without coziness. The beamed ceiling and big stone fireplace anchored the room in spite of a positively majestic view over the darkening hillside. Mac stood alone, perusing the titles on the built-in bookshelf, when he sensed her eyes on him.
Even her name sounded like a desperate cry of lust.
The young woman was Dr. Thayer’s assistant. Rumor had it that her widowed mother had died while she was in undergrad, and that Dr. Thayer had taken her under her wing at that time.
The story sounded too much like a fairy tale to be believable. But Ava was almost like a fairytale princess. As shy as she was smart. As kind as she was beautiful.
She smiled sweetly at one of the other party guests, her dark, thick hair sliding over her shoulder as she leaned forward, her lush breasts straining the material of her costume.
She was fully dressed, in a prim velvet dress with a collar that buttoned up to her chin, but that full bosom always looked exposed. She was a curvy little thing, but her comparatively delicate shoulders seemed almost overwhelmed at the responsibility of carrying those gorgeous breasts.
Mac had a sudden image of what it would be like to nuzzle them, bite them, and then blister her naturally pouting lips with kisses, while he defiled her.
Mac had managed to hold his alpha in check with the females of the pack, despite their shameless advances. But Ava didn’t feel the pull the way they did. He wished Ava were a wolf so that she would long for him, too. He would slake his lust with her, no matter the cost.
But she was a human. A sweet, delicate, off-limits human.
And he was a beast.
“Hello, Professor MacGregor,” she said softly. He almost expected birds and woodland creatures to land on her shoulders.
“Hello, Ava,” he said, more stiffly than he would have liked.
“Are you a cowboy?” she asked, taking in his carefully chosen attire.
“Yes,” he replied, “and you must be…” His imagination took over and he guessed wildly in his own head. An angel? A whore? A tasty little snack?
“A school teacher,” she replied with a self-deprecating smile.
“Very nice,” he commended her. The costume was actually quite good.
She scurried away before he could say any more. Which was probably for the best. His heart was already pounding. That was more attention than she’d ever paid him before.
