WIP Wednesday – Scarlett and the Big Bad
Now that Saving Suki has been released, and I’ve re-released Rock You Like a Hurricane and put out a box set for the first three Horse Mountain Shifters stories I wrote, I’m able to concentrate on one of the fractured fairytales I’ve started. The first book in the series, Scarlett and the Big Bad, is two parts Little Red Riding Hood, one part Three Little Pigs, and one part intro to the bigger story which will play on Beauty and the Beast. There will be magic, shifters, spanking, and sex, but who’s the villain and who’s the hero?
All of her life, Scarlett has dreamed of improving her dire circumstances by being selected to join the prestigious Order of the Phoenix. She’s worked hard, studied, and remained pure well into her twenties in hopeful preparation. Just when she’s about to realize her dream, the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen ruins her first meeting with the women of the order, claiming he’s rescuing her. Confused and overwhelmed, Scarlett finds herself unable to resist the man who claims to be her fated mate.
Orphaned at an early age, Monty’s done his best to take care of his younger sister, Katina, and just when he’s nearly gotten her all grown up, Scarlett, who might as well be as helpless as a newborn kitten, rushes in to blow a huge hole in his life. He didn’t ask for a mate, and he hadn’t wanted one, but his werewolf’s heightened sense of smell makes her tantalizing even from miles away. The worst part about the sticky situation is her connection to the magical terrorist group responsible for his parents’ and older brother’s murder. Scarlett’s stubborn refusal to believe the truth about the Order doesn’t help either.
Monty’s determined to protect Scarlett from the Order’s evil plans for her and from her own deeply ingrained indoctrination even if he has to spank her bottom until it’s the same color as her beautiful crimson hair. Compounding his difficulties, he’s afflicted with a unique, third shifter-form he doesn’t fully understand and isn’t totally able to control. Will Monty be able to save Scarlett or will he prove to be more of a danger to her than anyone else?
She caught the primal look in his eyes as he crawled over her, tugging at her clothing. Tiny beads of sweat misted her forehead as he yanked her pants off. She tightened her stomach muscles as his lips grazed her naval. Moaning, she urged him onward, stroking his hair. He roughly pulled at her sweater and undergarments until he’d stripped her to the skin. Stark naked and vulnerable, she quivered, awaiting him.
His calloused hands roamed her flesh, exploring without reservation. Her nipples tightened into hard nubs, protruding out like an invitation. He accepted, grabbing one breast as he captured her lips with his. She lifted her head, pushing into the kiss, her mouth open, hungry. Their tongues darted and twirled, dancing an arousing samba. As he pinched her nipple, she moaned into his mouth, arching her back.
