NEW RELEASE!


SYNOPSIS:

An Enemies to Lovers Shifter, Vampire True Mates story.
Justice Volkov is the youngest Alpha Zenith to ever lead the wolf shifters. Following in his father’s large paw prints was a responsibility he met head on. Now at age thirty-three, he is alpha of the alphas. As a direct descendant of the original Siberian pack, his wolf is bigger and stronger than Justice, himself is sometimes able to control.
“His wolf howled long and hard but Justice kept it inside. It felt like a bass drum beating against his rib cage. The harsh breaths, angry snarls and the determined pacing inside him was overtaking him. All the while… his mate kept calling.”
Justice takes his role of leadership and his legacy very seriously. He has little time for romance, not to mention a true mate. His packs are his priority. With a human government trying to regulate them, an uprising of rogue shifters, and a violent team of scientists trying to experiment on them, Justice has his hands way too full.
Chadwick ‘Wick’ Bentley is not enthusiastic when the captain of his escort tells him he has to leave his comfortable London home and go back to the States. As the Vampire King, he has no choice but to get his species back in line before they cause anymore chaos. At over two-hundred years old, Wick is no one to trifle with, but his smooth, charismatic manner makes him quite unique, despite the negative reputation vampires have. Wick has had nothing but time up to this point. He doesn’t feel the need to make issues pressing. Nothing is urgent in his life. Until he meets Justice. His beloved.
“Natural enemies can’t be mates.” Or so Justice thought. He knows his skepticism and rejection is hurting his mate, so while he fights their connection, Wick gets help from a source very close to Justice to help him win his beloved’s heart. Wick is a force all on his own, but when he’s blessed with a special gift from the Mother herself, not even Justice’s powerful wolf can prevent the prophesy from being fulfilled.
This story DOES NOT contain/mention MPREG. No multiple pairings. It does not end on a cliffhanger and has an HEA.
Warning: This book is MM paranormal: If you DO NOT like hot, alpha men shifting into large wolves, or vampires feeding from their mates, this may not be your read.

SNEAK PEAK - EXCERPT

His animal growled and snarled inside him. Justice grunted and cursed while he fought to keep his wolf under control. What was wrong with him? What the hell was coming? He could feel it as sure as he could feel his beating heart, his racing pulse and his mighty wolf trying to get out and explore. He’d never had to reign in his animal so fiercely. Justice was finally able to open his eyes, not realizing they were squeezed shut in concentration.
“Justice! You’re forcing a lot of power, man.” Mac’s strong voice cut over the incessant presence trying to reach his mind.
Justice growled again. Something’s in my head. “Clear the room.” Justice’s voice was strained, spitting his words through clenched teeth. His wolf was clawing at him, ripping him apart, wanting out.
“Justice you’re scaring me. I can feel you fighting.”
He could hear his baby sister begging but he couldn’t focus on his siblings when he was barely keeping himself together. It had to be the Vampire King doing something to him. If Justice shifted and went crazy right here in a police headquarters, only the heavens knew what would happen to his people. “Get my family out of here.” Justice grabbed Alek’s arm in an authoritative grip. “Everyone. Out. Now.”
“We’re your betas. We won’t leave you, Justice,” Taleb snarled, looking in the same direction as Justice.
“Alek!” Justice thundered. He needed him to act for him.
“You heard your Alpha, Taleb. Warren, get them in the RV and back on the Humboldt pack lands now! Protect them with your lives,” Alek barked to the enforcers, who immediately began to shuffle Justice’s sister and his younger brothers out of the room and to the safety of their vehicle. Alek watched them down the hall until they turned out of view. His brother looked up and down the corridor before dipping back inside the room and locking the door.
“I think the Vampire King just turned the corner. Is it him doing this to you? I’ll kill him right now,” Alek growled.
“No!” Justice’s voice was sharper and stronger than he intended. He was still leaning hard against the wall farthest from the door for support, holding both clenched fists against his chest as if that alone could keep his wolf from bursting free. Justice closed his eyes and tried to center himself. He needed to breathe, relax. But with each second, the feelings intensified, an all-encompassing entity in his head.
“I can feel you too.”
“Oh shit. Was that you, Alek?” Justice grabbed his brother’s arm and yanked him to face him. “Did you just speak to me?”
“What? No? I am speaking to you now. Justice, goddamnit! You’re pushing too much energy.” Alek released a pained grunt. His brother looked like he wanted to break the window behind them and just get them the hell out of there. He’d never seen Justice behave this way, so out of control, and wasn’t sure what he was about to be faced with, but knew he may have to fight it alone because Justice was in a complete state of disorder.
It was an accented, smooth voice. “Something. Someone just said—” Then he smelled it. That faint, delicious scent that appeared last night was back, only it wasn’t diluted by nature’s elements. This time it was full strength, concentrated, and like nothing he’d ever smelled before. Impressive and so damn compelling. Justice’s thick cock pushed against his loose jeans and his wolf howled inside him, fighting to break free. His animal was so strong. Justice gritted his teeth together and hung on. Oh, Mother… please. Can’t… it just can’t. Justice heard footsteps right outside the door and his body began to shake from effort.
“Justice,” Alek warned. “You gotta tell me what’s going on, brother, so I can help you.”
How the hell was he supposed to explain this?
Justice saw the knob jiggle for a second before it was completely ripped from the door. Neither he nor Alek flinched at the show of strength. They had strength of their own. Justice thought dozens of vampires would storm the room, but only two walked in and Justice knew exactly which one was in his head. The Vampire King. The sexy, beautiful one. But how?

About the Book

Blurb


Robin returns to England after four years fighting in the holy land. On arriving at Locksley, he discovers that Guy of Gisborne, his most hated enemy, has been made Sheriff of Nottingham. Forced to flee into Sherwood, Robin sets himself up as champion of the poor. But Robin has a secret. His feelings for his friend Will Scathelock have deepened, but to acknowledge the truth would mean facing up to his past. Meanwhile Lady Marian Fitzwalter, heiress to the vast Huntingdon estate is determined to claim Robin for her own.


Excerpt

Two hours after his initial request, Robin was shown into the king’s tent. Richard was enjoying a cup of wine. Though thin from lack of food, he was still as vital as on the day Robin had first met him four years earlier.

A golden-haired minstrel was quietly plucking at his lute as Robin entered. At a nod from Richard, he bowed and withdrew. Robin knew the man by reputation: he was said to be Richard’s lover.

There was no smile on Richard’s face as he greeted Robin. “Well, Locksley, I understand someone broke into your tent and tried to kill you in your sleep.”

The king spoke in Norman French, the language of the aristocracy since the days of William the Conqueror.

Robin bowed and answered in the same tongue. “Yes, Sire. The assassin is dead. I believe he was sent personally to kill me.”

“Where is your proof? The man could have been anyone. Some knight you managed to get on the wrong side of. Why bring this to my attention?”

Robin kept his temper with difficulty. Things had been strained between him and Richard for some time. Robin knew he was fortunate to be alive after he had openly defied Richard. He had spoken out against the king’s desire to kill nearly three thousand Saracen prisoners after the fall of Acre. His public disobedience should have resulted in a death sentence, but for reasons best known to himself, the king had decided on a public flogging instead. It had been brutal. The wounds had become infected, leading to a fever Robin was lucky to have recovered from. Without Will’s care, things would have ended differently.

“The man entered the camp disguised as a messenger. He carried several rolls of parchment, though all were blank. One bore my insignia as a token to offer if he were challenged. It was carefully planned.”

“I see. I shall have the sentries questioned. We will get to the bottom of this.”

Robin felt an inward twinge of sympathy for whichever unfortunate man paid the price for the assassin’s infiltration.

“There is more, Sire. I believe the man was sent by Guy of Gisborne.”

Richard raised an eyebrow. “What makes you think so?”

“I found this ring on his body.” Robin held it up for inspection.

Richard gave it a cursory glance. “And this concerns me how?”

“If Gisborne is able to hire an assassin, it suggests he has powerful backing. He was in exile with not a penny nor land to his name. I think it likely that your brother may once more be up to no good and has rallied some of his old supporters who survived the rebellion.”

Robin saw that, at last, he had the king’s full attention.

Richard poured himself a fresh cup of wine. “I wouldn’t put it past my little brother to have grown restless in my absence. I will be returning to England soon enough, I suspect. We are almost within sight of Jerusalem. A few weeks’ delay to your journey will make little difference.”

Robin bit back the response that sprang to his tongue. The king was watching him closely.

“You have something to say, Locksley?”

“No, Sire. I am yours to command.”

Richard’s eyes took on a steely glint. “Humility does not suit you. I know what you would say. Jerusalem is close, but the army’s heart has gone out of the Crusade. You think I don’t know what my so-called allies whisper behind my back? Morale is low.”

The king lapsed into a brooding silence. Robin waited him out. He was on shaky ground and he knew it. Better to keep quiet than say the wrong thing and risk sparking off Richard’s legendary temper.

“Very well, Locksley. You have proved yourself loyal in the past despite your recent transgressions. You have my leave to return home. If rebellion is fermenting again, let my chancellor know it.”

Robin bowed. “As you wish, Sire.”

THE BUTTERFLY PROJECT by Emma Scott Review




"Where you are is home..."

At age fourteen, Zelda Rossi witnessed the unthinkable, and has spent the last ten years hardening her heart against the guilt and grief. She channels her pain into her art: a dystopian graphic novel where vigilantes travel back in time to stop heinous crimes—like child abduction—before they happen. Zelda pitches her graphic novel to several big-time comic book publishers in New York City, only to have her hopes crash and burn. Circumstances leave her stranded in an unfamiliar city, and in an embarrassing moment of weakness, she meets a guarded young man with a past he’d do anything to change...

Beckett Copeland spent two years in prison for armed robbery, and is now struggling to keep his head above water. A bike messenger by day, he speeds around New York City, riding fast and hard but going nowhere, his criminal record holding him back almost as much as the guilt of his crime. 

Zelda and Beckett form a grudging alliance of survival, and in between their stubborn clash of wills, they slowly begin to provide each other with the warmth of forgiveness, healing, and maybe even love. But when Zelda and Beckett come face to face with their pasts, they must choose to hold on to the guilt and regret that bind them, or let go and open their hearts for a shot at happiness. 

The Butterfly Project is a novel that reveals the power of forgiveness, and how even the smallest decisions of the heart can—like the flutter of a butterfly’s wings—create currents that strengthen into gale winds, altering the course of a life forever.

Review

The Butterfly ProjectThe Butterfly Project by Emma Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Zelda and Beckett have painful pasts. Both are struggling every moment with the emotional baggage. The author does an excellent job of putting the reader in their shoes. I easily understood their actions and feelings. I love these characters and how they don't play romance games. I suppose because they have seen firsthand how real consequences can be, they take life seriously. Both characters are sort of stuck and having trouble moving forward. They help to bring each other around to a better place. I definitely recommend The Butterfly Project. It's entertaining, but it also leaves you thinking. It's not a book that you can just finish and forget. The occasional drawings are a bonus that really adds to the storyline.
