Dakota's Taking Over

Before we get started here, I’ll like to thank the lovely but quirky TL Reeves for being brave enough to let my muse and characters run amok on her blog.  With Livvy one never knows what one will get and she’s been known to be a little…brass shall we say? 

Agiggle catches my attention and in saunters my muse, clad in a dark leather micro skirt and neon orange corset.  I’m so used to her outlandish colors, I don’t even blink.  “I have to be to keep you motivated, Slave.” 

*Groans* “Again with the slave.  I swear I’m going to lock you away.”

“Now, behave, and don’t be such a stick in the mud.  I have on good authority that we have a lot of fun planned and even a bit of a mystery.” 

*cocks hand on hip* “So let’s get this party started.  We have a Scottish wolf pack to explore and a missing torque to find.” 

*sigh* “Dear lord help us all.” 


Light dies and Livvy giggles, now standing in a lavish great hall.  “Welcome to Taghte Keep, situated on the sunny shores...” glances out the window at the darkening sky “…well maybe not so sunny shores of the Western Scotland and home of the Taghte Pack. We’re here today to not only meet our spunky heroine, Colleen, but also look for her missing torque…” 

An arguing couple enters the hall. The female with white almost translucent hair and the male a huge towering man with long shaggy hair.  

“Damnit, sis, how many times do I have to tell you, I didn’t take the damned thing.” 

Woman places hands on hips. “That’s what you said the last time it mysteriously disappeared. And where did I find it?  In your office at the restaurant.  So don’t give me that malarkey.” 

*Muse sighs longingly* “And the hunky Carrick…which slave won’t let me write about for at least another year – evil witch she is.”  
The arguing couple comes to a stop, staring at the unexpected company. 

“Livvy.”  The woman looked about a comfortable as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. 

“Hey, chica!  You’d think you’d be happy to see me.  Didn’t I bring you to your mates?”

“Get out!”  Colleen crosses her arms over her chest.  “You’ve caused enough havoc already.”

“Moi?”  *places hand over chest* “All I did…”

“Was told ‘Dumbo’ here that I was in danger.  Then the little ratfink went and told Dad, and Daddy…” 

Carrick protested and held up his hands.  “Come on, I told you that I couldn’t just let you die. Give a guy a break…”

Carrick’s response of course broke out another round of arguing.

*places fingers between lips and whistles* “Enough!”  Sister and brother
both stop to stare.

“You’re not going to ruin Slave’s party-thing-a-jig!”  *glares at both of them*

“So we’re here to find your missing torque…enough of the ‘tude or I’ll throw a monkey wrench in so big that slave’s editors will be pulling their hair out.”

“You wouldn’t do that to Larke…she’s great…”  Colleen protested.

“I will if you don’t knock it off.  Now where was the last place you saw your torque?”

“I was in my room. Gretchen had just brought me dinner. She wanted to get a better look at it, so I took it off to show it to her…” 

“Now we have a start.”  *muse nods* “Let’s go find your friend,” *turns toward readers* “Which to you fine folks, means you need to head over to Matthias Williamson’s blog tomorrow.  But before you go, don’t forget to enter Carrick’s name below in the form for a chance to be entered to win the grand prize slave is giving away at her Wrap Up Party on the 25th. A gift basket complete with your own Seer’s Torque necklace and several other goodies, that slave is keeping a secret from me.” 

*turns back to couple, then spins back around* “And crap, slave will string me up if I forget to mention the daily giveaway.   Comment on today’s post for a chance to win a cool key chain with the seer’s torque on it.  See ya tomorrow.”   *joins Carrick and Colleen* “Now let’s go find that friend of yours.”


The Council of Elders has charged Matthias Galloway with bringing the once prosperous Taghte Pack back into the Council's fold. In exchange for his services, Matthias names his terms: he wants to claim his longtime lover and friend, Andrew, as his mate.
Nephew of a powerful alpha, Andrew Gilchrist has long been a coveted commodity because of his services as a healer. Neither expects the Council to agree to Mathias’s terms, leaving him free, finally, to claim his chosen mate. Even more unexpected is the presence of a third-bond to appear during their mating ritual.

The grandchildren of the slain alpha of the Taghte pack, Colleen Donghall and her twin brother, were whisked away at birth. They're still kept hidden from those who would harm them. Raised in seclusion, Colleen's never experienced lust, let alone the bond between mates. On the night of lunar eclipse, she's drawn into Matthias and Andrew's passionate claiming, and her dormant libido is powerfully awoken.

But it’s nothing compared to the lust and danger that will stalk her and her mates, when she arrives in Scotland.
