There's Going to be a Fourth Phoenix Pack Book!

I'm delighted to announce that there will in fact be another addition to the series. The book will center around Roni and Marcus, which I'm sure won't be a surprise to those who have read 'Carnal Secrets'. I've already got started on the book, which I'm having so much fun writing. I can't reveal much about the story, but suffice it to say that smooth-talking Marcus is finding charming Roni - who's much like a solitary wild animal in nature - a challenge, but one he's totally enjoying.

I know many are interested in reading Dominic's story, but he's just not ready for his mate yet. His time will come, and we will laugh as the mated males give him shit in retaliation.

I don't have a release date for the fourth book just yet, but I will post it when I do. I'd imagine it will be sometime in late Spring 2015, but that's a guess on my part. Yes, I know it seems like a long wait; the publishing process is a lengthy one.

I just want to say thank you to all those who have been so supportive of the series! It means a great deal to me, and I truly appreciate it.

Take care,

Suzanne

Short Christmas Story

Hey everyone, I wrote a short story that gives a quick glimpse of the Phoenix Pack on Christmas Eve. It centers around Dante and Jaime, but it features the rest of the pack. If you'd like to take a look, read on.

Two steps into the bedroom, Dante stumbled over something and almost fell flat on his face. Glancing down, he wasn’t surprised to find a stray shoe. “Jaime!” From her spot on the floor amidst rolls of wrapping paper, tags, ribbons, and a pile of gift-wrapped boxes, she lifted her head and presented him with a bright smile that always hit him straight in the gut. Ignoring the sensation, he glowered. “Do you want me to fall and break my neck, is that it?”

Cocking her head at her mate – and inwardly laughing her ass off – Jaime replied, “I’ve thought about it.” When he picked up her shoe and pointed it at her, she sensed a lecture coming. “Lay off, Popeye. I’ve been using the shoe rack.”

“Yeah, to put CDs on.” He gestured at the sporadically placed shoes. In honesty, the mess bothered him more than repeatedly tripping over. “Why do you have to scatter them everywhere?”

“Think of it as a test of your coordination and balance.”

Jaime!

“Stop obsessing over it.” Smiling again, she jumped to her feet. “That’s everything wrapped. You’re just in time to help me move it all.”

Fully intending to spank her ass later, Dante helped her carry the gifts through the network of tunnels. In the living area, most of the pack was seated on the large sectional sofa, watching The Grinch. Taryn was playing on the floor with baby Kye while Trey was stood frowning at the tree, telling Ryan, “I just don’t understand the purpose of it.” He had been whining about the decorations for weeks.

Having positioned the gifts under the tree, Jaime stood upright to find that Dominic had come to her side, wearing a flirtatious grin and holding mistletoe over her head. “Oh for God’s sake.”

Dominic just laughed when Dante snatched it. “All I want for Christmas is you, Jaime.”

Dante sighed. “Dom, don’t make me hurt you. Again.” 

Dominic ignored him. “Come on, Jaime, would you really deprive me – your favorite person ever – of the thing I want most?”

“Yes, yes, I would.”

“How could you be so selfish and¾? Ow!” Rubbing the back of his head, he scowled at Dante. “Now that was uncalled for.”

Rolling her eyes, Jaime turned away from them and noticed that Kye had crawled to Ryan and was tugging on the leg of his jeans. The little guy had taken an extreme liking to the enforcer. Looking awkward, Ryan reached down, gripped the back of Kye’s sweater, and lifted him. Blowing bubbles, Kye grabbed Ryan’s nose. Wincing, Ryan tried handing the baby to Trey, but Kye wasn’t prepared to release his new toy.

Taryn laughed. “He has a soft spot for you, Ryan.”

Greta huffed at Taryn and gestured at the fairy lights decorating the room. “Is all this really necessary? I’m starting to get a migraine from all the twinkling.”

Taryn smiled sweetly. “I suppose if you’ve lived to see over three hundred Christmas days come and go, it’s hard to get excited anymore. On another note, did you remember to put wrinkle cream on your list?”

“Why does it have to be me?” Tao’s whine had everyone’s head swiveling. Dressed as Santa, he was shoved into the room by Trick and Marcus.

Trick looked at him impatiently. “Stop moaning! It’s for Kye. It’s his first Christmas.”

Marcus nodded, chewing on a cookie. “Yeah, now go and do…whatever Santas do.”

With a long suffering sigh, Tao made his way to Kye. But no matter how much Tao fussed over him, the kid just frowned a very Alpha-like frown at him, totally unimpressed. Then he grabbed Tao’s nose and pinched hard.

Tao jerked backwards. “Ow! I’ll swear he just grunted.”

Dante turned to Jaime, only to find that she was bending over and adjusting the position of a bauble. And that was when he noticed it. His whole body tightened. The second she was upright, he cupped her elbow and whispered into her ear, “We need to be alone now.

Confused and curious, Jaime allowed him to lead her out of the living area. It was quickly apparent that he was leading her to their bedroom. Once they were inside, he slammed the door closed, pushed her up against it, and swerved her around. “What the¾

Lifting up her t-shirt and jerking her jeans down slightly, Dante released a low groan and ran his finger along the white fur that lined his mate’s panties. Ignoring her indignant huffs and slapping hands, he stripped her down to her underwear in seconds and then twisted her to face him. He raked his gaze over her, feeling his mouth dry up at the sight of her in the red lacy, fur-lined underwear. “Damn.”

“It was supposed to be a surprise for later,” she grumbled.

“I think you should reward me for being a good boy this year and let me unwrap you early.” He pulled her against him and nipped her neck.

She snorted. “A good boy? Considering the things you do to me in that bed, you must be constantly on the naughty list. But don’t worry – ‘nice’ bores me.”

“Glad to hear it, since you’re stuck with me. Even though I suspect you’re trying to break my neck, I’m keeping you.”

Jaime locked her arms around his neck. “And even though you’re a total neat freak who likes to control everything around him, I’m keeping you.”

He smiled against her mouth. “That’s good, because I intend to love you and irritate you for the rest of our lives.” He kissed her. “I say we don’t leave this room again until morning. After all, it’s important to celebrate our first Christmas as a mated couple in style.”

“In style, huh. I can go with that.”

“But first…” His expression turned pained. “Do you think you could put all your shoes on the rack?”

“Oh for the love of all that’s¾! Therapy, you need therapy!”

Carnal Secrets Cover Reveal

At last we have it!

Here is the cover for the third installment of The Phoenix Pack series! For anyone who hasn't already read the synopsis, I'll include it here. The release date February 11, 2014 still seems so far away, but it will most likely fly by.



A pack Alpha and his estranged, true mate wrestle with painful secrets, ruthless enemies, and their own irresistible attraction, in the sexy third book of the Phoenix Pack series.

Half-shifter Shaya Critchley may hold a submissive role in her pack, but she’s done taking orders. After her Alpha wolf mate refused to claim her—but committed to interfering in her life—she took off. Now she hides from him, posing as a human in a town full of anti-shifter extremist groups. She thinks he’ll never find her again, and that suits her just fine. But she’s wrong.

Nick Axton can barely control his feelings for Shaya, but he could never claim her—not if he truly cares for her. The degenerative brain condition he keeps secret would ultimately leave her with a burden rather than a mate. But when Shaya runs away, Nick can’t bear the thought of never seeing her again. After tracking her down, he discovers Shaya’s feisty and passionate side in the process…a side he’d never seen before.

Under the menacing gazes of territorial local packs and violent human extremists, Nick vows to finally claim the spirited Shaya…and despite her initial resistance, Shaya just might find his fiery determination to be the ultimate aphrodisiac.


The book is available now for pre-order on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Carnal-Secrets-Phoenix-Pack-ebook/dp/B00E8PUYEU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1380701857&sr=8-1&keywords=carnal+secrets


Now I need to get back to Sam and Jared - I'm currently working on the third in The Deep in Your Veins series.

Take care everyone!

Big News

Hi everyone!

I'm happy to tell you that book 3 of the Phoenix Pack series has been given an official release date: February 11, 2014. Although it was originally titled 'Tremors of Need', my Editor and I discussed changing it to a two-word title to match 'Feral Sins' and 'Wicked Cravings'. The new title is 'Carnal Secrets'...and I'm so bloody excited. For those of you who have expressed an interest in pre-ordering it, here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/Carnal-Secrets-Phoenix-Series-ebook/dp/B00E8PUYEU/ref=sr_1_2?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1375697379&sr=1-2&keywords=carnal+secrets. There is no book cover just yet, but it will be coming soon.

I'll continue putting teaser quotes from 'Carnal Secrets' on Twitter https://twitter.com/suz_wright and on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Suzanne-Wright/1392617144284756

Also, 'From Rags' has been officially updated on Amazon so that it is free of grammatical errors. It means that anyone who bought it prior to the update may be contacted by Amazon to ask if they would like to have their version updated. If you don't hear from Amazon, feel free to contact them about it. I've also edited the cover slightly to make the title clearer.

In addition, 'From Rags' will be available in paperback format very, very soon on both Createspace and Amazon. I currently have the sample in front of me to read through and proof. It's going to be a long but very fun day.
Take care everyone!
