Werewolf Mate 101 -Snippet Sunday NaNo Week 2

~~It's a special Snippet Sunday!~~

On Sundays, I share tidbits of my works in progress as part of Weekend Warrior’s 8-Sentence Sunday. And since I'm currently participating in NaNoWriMo, I'll be posting a little weekend wrap-up at the conclusion of today’s snippet.

My NaNoWriMo project is a paranormal (erotic) romance titled DISARMING COWBOYS, book 7 of my Lone Wolves of Shay Falls series. Currently, the heroine is tied up in a bunkhouse along with Jerrod Flint, the annoyingly gorgeous werewolf she thinks betrayed her. He's teaching a little werewolf mate 101 to the last woman on earth who wants it.

“You’ve had werewolf dreams for years, Jerrod said, his eyes glittering with supernatural highlights.

“What does that matter?” Jayel blurted out, hoping to God she hadn't been talking in her sleep while she'd been  unconscious.

“Dreamin' of us is one of the signs, you know. So is keepin' yourself a virgin until your mates find you.” His lips curved in a slow grin. “Then you won’t be able to give it up fast enough.”

My virginity is not up for discussion, she snapped, “but if it was, I’d be pointing out I’ve simply been too busy hunting werewolves to do anything about it. It certainly isn’t because I’ve been saving myself for one.”

So what do you think?

End of Week 1 -NaNo wrap up
The family immediately dropped off the NaNo radar, bummer, but I'm still plugging along. My poor heroine has been put through the wringer.  She's had her life threatened, been captured and chained in a barn, nearly went over a cliff, got thrown from a horse, and as I mentioned in the above snippet's setup, she's currently tied up in a bunkhouse with a werewolf she thinks betrayed her. All this and it's only chapter four!  

End of Week 1 progress:

I'm J. Rose Allister, wife, working mom, and the author of over twenty-five books. Somewhere in between one and the next, I love hanging out here on my blog and over on Twitter. Give me a comment or follow-I love chatting with people!


  1. I think she's had a really, really bad day and could use a bubble bath and a bottle (or two) of wine. Great snippet!

    1. More like she's had a really bad few chapters! And it ain't over yet, LOL.

  2. This made me smile. He is so smug, and most likely spot on.

    1. I'm so glad! And yep, he's right on the money, darn him.

  3. Loved the dialog between them and I think he's right, although I certainly understand her not wanting to admit it just right this moment. Excellent excerpt!

    1. Thanks so much! And yeah, she's got all sorts of reasons why this isn't something she wants to admit.

  4. Lol, does he have any idea how much trouble he is in?;)

  5. "you won't be able to give it up fast enough."

    Oh, dear. That was *hot!* That might be all I needed to give into a sexy werewolf.

  6. Ooooh, you set this story up nicely with this snippet, Rose! Awesome! The tension is great! :-)
