“Just wait there while I come around to help you down,” Diarmid ordered. Miki bristled at the tone of command in his voice.
 
“I am perfectly capable of getting out of a vehicle myself.”

“Indulge me.” Diarmid grabbed his garbage, shoving the SUV door open.

He stalked around the vehicle where Miki waited for him. She didn’t know why she waited, but she did. He opened her door and lifted her to the ground. He grabbed her garbage along with his and she moved out of the way so he could close the door. He stopped at the back of the SUV to grab his kit then headed for the front entrance. Miki ran to keep up as he crossed the street. He slowed to accommodate her shorter legs and from that moment on, she didn’t have to run anymore.

“Sorry,” he muttered.

“No problem.” She glanced at his kit. “You weren’t kidding about keeping it stocked were you?”

“No, Mikaela, I wasn’t.” Diarmid raised a red-gold brow at her as his lips twisted into a wicked smile. “I keep my weapon clean and ready for use whenever it’s needed too. You’re welcome to inspect it at length if you’d like.”

Miki blushed a fiery red from his suggestive banter, almost tripping up the stairs as they climbed the steps to the entrance.

“Yeah. Um… Right. I’ll take your word for it, Diarmid.” Miki could almost visualize his weapon ready for use and had to look away when he chuckled at her as he pulled open the entry door to allow her to precede him.

“Too bad. I was looking forward to showing it to you.”

His gravelly voice sent chills down her spine making her clit throb in response. Damn him, he was enjoying this. She stopped to slug him in the shoulder before breezing past him through the doors. His laughter echoed behind her.

Half a dozen cops stared at her as if she had two heads when Diarmid followed her inside. He tossed the garbage into a trash can, motioning her toward the elevators. Miki sucked down the last of her shake and threw it away. She glanced around the lobby. Miki had the impression the cops in view wondered how she was still alive after whacking him. She raised her brows at one or two of them. They looked away, pretending they had other business to conduct. She shook her head.

“Do they think you’re a god or something?” Miki asked curiously after the elevator doors closed behind them.

“No, but I do outrank them.”

“Your rank wasn’t the reason they looked at me like I’d just taken my life in my hands by smacking you, though I think you will admit you deserved it.”

Miki turned to him. Diarmid pressed the stop button, set his kit on the floor and stalked her into the corner of the elevator.

“All I did was offer to let you inspect my weapon.”

RIP Carrie Fisher

Man, 2016 is vicious. Another great has left us.

Author & iconic actress Carrie Fisher died as a result of the heart attack she suffered last Friday. My sympathies go to her family, friends and her legions of fans - of which I am one.

Princess Leia proved that a princess in distress may need to be rescued, but she'll grab that blaster right out of your hand and rescue herself if you screw up. She was badass before badass was cool. She was smart, sarcastic and even though she was small - she had a huge presence. And I really think George Lucas gave her all the best lines!


"Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope."
"When you came in here didn't you have a plan for getting out?"
"Somebody has to save our skins. Into the garbage chute, fly-boy"
"You needn't worry about your reward. If money is all that you love, then that's what you'll receive." 
"Somebody get this walking carpet out of my way."

Among many others - and Carrie delivered the lines with snark and a dry humor we all loved.

RIP George Michael

I've always loved George Michael and his music made me smile. His voice was pretty amazing! I'm so sorry he's gone. You'll be missed by your many fans!

Here's one of my favorite George Michael songs - a duet with his friend and mentor, Elton John.
Don't let the sun go down on me...

True Mated Romance - My shapeshifter world!


Do you enjoy books about shapeshifting wolves? I do. I also love writing about them. Finally, all my books are mine again and they I'm making them available to readers.

I created a fictitious town in Colorado that is the home to my shapeshifters. Whitewolf, Colorado is a community/pack of slightly over 1000 people, however it is the nexus for the Feldspar (witch) family, the Drew Goldwolf and Kincaid Redwolf packs, and the Whitehawk and Goldowl aeries.

          The Feldspar family is a group of 100-200 interrelated humans who have settled together. The Feldspars are part of a long line of magic users descending from the druids. The wolf packs house mini-towns of approximately 500 each and each of the aeries also numbers approximately 500. The Whitehawks and Goldowls jointly operate a ski resort in the mountains above Whitewolf within the county.

        That makes about 3200 individuals living in and around Whitewolf, Colorado. Each of the individual groups operates autonomously, but all participate in life in the town of Whitewolf. All live within the county limits of Whitewolf. All children from the various communities attend Whitewolf schools.




            Whitewolf is located in a mountain valley in the upper foothills of the front range of the Rockies, slightly north of Denver. The valley is surrounded by four distinct foothills or low mountains, one in each direction. Exactly 4 roads lead in and out of the valley and run between each of the mountains which border the valley. The Whitehawk and Goldowl aeries are located on the mount the furthest to the west and at the highest elevation to accommodate the ski resort. The Redwolf clan is on the south mount, the Goldwolf clan on the north mount, and the Feldspar family live on the east mount.



            Whitewolf has become a draw to shapeshifters living in the area because they don’t have to hide who and what they are from people in their community.  The land in and around the valley is owned by the Whitewolf clan. Members of the clan own their own homes and property, but any undeveloped space is held by the pack leader. If anyone sells their property to move out of the area, it has to first be offered to the Whitewolf pack leader for purchase or approval of buyer. No land changes hands in the city limits of Whitewolf without the pack leader’s approval.
The only humans in the area are the Feldspar family who are practicing witches and are fully magical (spell-casting, etc.) Despite its small size the town aspires to be independent so that they don’t need to worry about humans becoming frightened of them.  

 
Town structure

Mayor/City Administrator (Pack leader) – Yohana Whitewolf (formerly her sire, Jeremiah)
The City Council is made up of four city folk and one representative of each of the neighboring groups for a total of 8. The council can recommend, but may not override a mayoral veto, since the mayor is the Whitewolf pack leader. The Mayor has the full power of both the position of Mayor and that of City Administrator. County business is handled by City Council as the county is small and is the area of the valley, the four mounts and about five miles in each direction.

An Excerpt From: Rockin’ Little Christmas
Copyright © FRANCESCA HAWLEY, 2013, 2016
All Rights Reserved, Francesca Hawley Romance

“Am I dead, angel? Cause you look like you’re straight from heaven.”

“That has to be the worst line I’ve ever heard,” Mandy laughed, looking up into warm brown eyes. She shivered as he settled into the chair beside her.

“Maybe, but it made you laugh.” He took her hand. “Can I buy you a drink?”

Joe waved over a waiter and ordered for them without once releasing her hand. She could feel the rough calluses guitar playing had created on his fingers, but they turned her on. He turned her on.
This was Joe? “Good ole Joe” as Eddie called him. He was neither good nor old. No. He was gorgeous…and talented. Zach wasn’t kidding when he’d said this Blackwolf was a great guitarist and singer. For the first time since Carly bugged her, she wished with all her might she hadn’t lied about Zach being her mate. Zach might be handsome, but Joe made her throb in places that hadn’t throbbed in all of her thirty-five years.

“So what’s with the camera, angel? Fan or reporter?”

Mandy looked down at her fingers clenched around her camera strap. If she told him who she was, he’d back off so fast she’d see skid marks on the floor. Just this once she wanted to pretend she was someone else. Just tonight. She leaned forward, pressing her lips against his ear.

“I’m more than a fan. I’m a groupie. Can’t you tell?”

He shuddered, turning his head he met her gaze. The fire glowing in his eyes set her boiling. Yes. She had to have him. Now.

“A groupie? For just any rock musician?”

“No, Joe. I want you.”

“Fuck, yeah,” he growled, standing so abruptly his chair toppled over. No one nearby noticed as he dragged her to her feet. “Where?”

Mandy looked over toward the hallway leading to Zach’s office. They had a clear path. She pulled him after her and they ducked into the shadowy space. He pressed her to the wall and took her mouth in a deep kiss. Their mouths meshed together. Joe pulled back to nip at her lips, then ran his tongue along the inside edge of her lower lip. She caught his long dark hair in her fingers, holding his mouth to hers.

Fire. Heat. She’d never felt anything like this in her entire life. She moaned as his mouth slid to nuzzle her neck. Mandy wrapped her free arm around him, clutching his leather jacket. She lifted her right leg along his hip. He stepped into the opening she’d created, thrusting his hips against hers.
She shivered as his rough fingers slid under her skirt to cup her ass. He pulled her more firmly against his hard cock then reached up to her peasant top, untying the drawstring to bare her bra covered breast. His hot breath teased her neck and then his warm tongue licked along the curves of her neck and breasts.

“Hey. Anyone seen Joe?” Mandy and Joe froze as she heard Eddie’s voice. He was close. Too close.
She looked in the direction of the entrance to the hallway. She didn’t see him, but he was right there. She knew it. Mandy closed her eyes, fighting to keep her panting excitement from giving them away.

“I think I saw him with a hot chick earlier. I didn’t get a good look at her though. Just noticed she was his type,” Tom responded with a laugh.

Joe groaned in her ear and kissed her cheek. She turned to look up at him. He was still on fire—she could see it—but there was a definite question in his dark eyes. Stop or go?

She lowered her leg and he sighed, then she smiled and grabbed his hand. “This way,” she whispered.
Mandy knew there was an empty unlocked office back here and she wanted this wolf and she wanted him now. He chuckled as they moved into the darkness. She found the door on the right and turned the knob. Hearing the click, she pushed, wincing at the creak when the door stuck. He pushed her through and they shut and locked the door behind them. Mandy flipped the light switch, blinking a bit to adjust to the table lamps that came on. She’d been expecting an overhead.

Joe pulled her over to the empty desk and she climbed up onto it. He stroked her cheek. “You’re sure?”

“Yes. I don’t want to stop. Not now.”

Extraction by Lex Valentine - Available Nov. 18

Two soldiers, former lovers, each think they are saving the other from a South American drug cartel, all the while rehashing their broken relationship.

Green Beret Shane Cullen has been undercover for the DEA with a South American drug cartel. Eighteen months into his assignment, and unbeknownst to Shane, the cartel's number two man is captured by the U.S. Marshals and starts to talk. Shane's mission becomes endangered. His Special Forces commander calls in a favor and pulls in Shane's former lover and teammate Elliott Hutchens for an extraction.

Elliott hasn't seen Shane in almost two years, since his lover walked out on him. But Shane's in trouble and doesn't know it, so Elliott can't refuse the mission. Getting himself captured by the cartel in order to force Shane to rescue him is the easy part. The hard part comes when Shane discovers he's the real extraction, not Elliott. Shane's bad temper ended their relationship once before. Will it get in the way again or can these two soldiers work through their issues and find their way to a happy ever after?

I'm FREE!!!! Rights returned!!

Hi all. This is Francesca Hawley. I've been quiet for a while and part of the reason for that was that I've been waiting for the rights to my books to revert to me so I had control over my works again.

Some of you may have noticed that when I had Rae Monet redesign my web site, we left my EC titles off the Books page. There was a reason for that. The last royalties I was paid for by Ellora's Cave was for June 2015. It's not that I was making a lot of money anyway. I wasn't, but it is the principle of the thing. For years they had faithfully paid me SOMETHING every single month. But then the checks stopped and I had no recourse. That's well over a year of being paid no royalties.

This was especially upsetting to me because I'd always felt I had a good working relationship with the staff and owners of EC. I couldn't understand why this was happening.

Although, I received no money, I wasn't given the rights to my books back either because I was told that my books sold over the minimum amount so my rights weren't returned to me.

Please note - this is solely MY experience. I make no claims about EC's business dealings with any other author.  
 
I took those titles off my new web site because I wanted my sales to drop enough that my rights would revert to me. That was beginning to work, but they still had two of my books - Alpha vs. Alpha and Cupid Rocks - and there seemed to be no end in site.

AvA is the first book in a series and I wanted it back, so I contacted EC to arrange a buy back. I'm especially happy about this because Ellora's Cave recently announced they will be closing their doors at the end of the year. Because of the buy back, I'm out well ahead of that time. I admit, I'm not thrilled that I had to pay to get my stuff back, but I'm incredibly relieved that we were able to come to an agreement. I can't go into details about the deal itself, but I can live with what I agreed to.

As of October 10, 2016, Alpha vs. Alpha and Cupid Rocks officially reverted back to me. That's all of my books. Finally. I'm making my shapeshifter books available to my readers again. I'm editing the books, arranging to get new covers made (by the fabulous, multi-talented Dar Albert of Wicked Smart designs), and putting them online for sale again.

Alpha vs. Alpha has been released and Dar is already at work on additional covers. Cupid Rocks is returning to its original concept as a Christmas release. The title will be Rockin' Little Christmas and is currently on preorder. Leader of the Pack will be available in December 2016 and in January or February, I'll rerelease Protect and Defend.

Is it all just rereleases? Nope. I'm going to be working on new stories as well. I've had several stories that I started but didn't finish them because I didn't want them to drive sales to my back list. NOW - I'm ready to move forward again. I'm super excited.

Do you have a favorite character from my shapeshifter books who you think deserves his/her own story? If so, let me know. I want to write stories to make my readers happy!!


Happy Halloween!

Waxwork - the trailer

I really liked this campy movie. My favorite "scenes" were with the two girls. Interesting mix of sex and horror. The guy scenes were just blood and yuk. But keep in mind this film is from 1988.







Masque of the Red Death - trailer

One of the best horror films ever! I love Vincent Price!

Alpha vs. Alpha 
Copyright © 2005, 2011, 2016, 
Francesca Hawley


Serena Goldwolf’s head shot up at the irate shout coming from the outer office of her shapeshifter matchmaking business, Predator-Match.com. She brushed her bangs off her forehead with a sigh. Damn it, couldn’t anyone in this office take care of stuff without her intervention?
The male voice continued to roar out there, and she knew her secretary wouldn’t be able to handle him because Kara was such an omega even omega males dominated her. Serena sighed again, saved her database update and headed out to confront the wolf male jerk. Serena took in the male outrage with a shake of her head. Asshole. He shook his head as if he’d heard her. Yeah right. She wished.
“I’m sorry, sir. Really.” Kara huddled in her chair, her head dipped and her eyes on her desktop. Submission in her posture and her voice.
“You people set me up with some stalker bitch! I want to talk to one of the owners, now.” A tall black-haired man with dark-brown eyes leaned on the desk, his large hands flat on the wood.
Serena took him in, her body responding immediately. Damn it. She didn’t need this shit, but she couldn’t take her eyes off him. He wore a very expensive, black Italian suit, Italian black leather loafers, a crisp white shirt and red tie. The ultimate in power wear for the busy executive. And he was so good-looking he resembled an escapee from Fashion Week. She shook her head to remind herself that he wasn’t all that…he was just a wolf like any other.
