Many thanks to Devon Rhodes for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming paranormal m/m romance, Locke, Stock and Barrel (Vampires and Mages and Weres, Oh My! #3), for a lucky commenter to win!Â Locke, Stock and Barrel will be released on November 5 by Total-E-Bound.
Faint heart never won fair…mage? What’s a werewolf to do when his mate runs away? Chase him, of course.
Aspen, a master mage, has loved his foster sister Brie for years, but now that she’s been forced to become an acolyte, the only way to ever win her is to find another source of the power their faction needs before the new moon. Seeking information about the were, Aspen walks into Locke’s cafe and finds what could be the solution to everything. He could finally have Brie…but sometimes what you think you want and what you get are two very different things.
Locke is shocked when Aspen walks into his life. He’d always been told that as an omega, he would never have a mate. But the joyous occasion is marred by his banishment from the only life heâ€™s ever known, and even worse, Aspen has disappeared. Now, with nothing more to lose, he must track down his wayward mage. But trouble has beaten him there and unless he acts quickly, Aspen could be killed. And thatâ€™s not even the worst possible outcome…
Reader Advisory: This book is part of a series, but can be read as a standalone.
Excerpt (scroll down and expand)
Devon started reading and writing at a young age and never looked back. After a creatively sapping career in the business world, she gratefully took some time off to be at home.
At 39 and holding, Devon finally figured out the best way to channel her midlife crisis was to morph from mild-mannered stay-at-home mom into erotic romance writer.
She lives in Oregon with her husband and two children, who are (mostly) understanding of all the time she spends on her laptop, aka the black hole.
