Today we have guest blogger Lori King, a fellow Siren author who has written two erotic paranormal romances. Find out about her latest romance Reflections of the Wolf, which was only released yesterday!
Hi Jan! Thank you so much, for letting me borrow your blog for a day! I’m Lori King, a newly published author with Siren-Bookstrand, as well as a full-time mom of 3 boys, a wife, PTO secretary, and I work a full-time job in the financial industry. I’m an everyday woman, with a lot of things to juggle, and I use my writing as a way of stepping out of my shoes for a little while.
I write stories about Dominant men with a teddybear middle. I want them tough on the outside maybe even a little bossy, and gooey like melted chocolate inside, when it comes to their women. I write about women who are softies when it comes to their men, but stand on their own two feet the majority of the time. No wishy-washy whiners for me. I like to say put on your big girl panties and deal!
As for why I write erotic romance, well that’s pretty easy for me. I write to bring fantasies to life for regular women like myself. I want them to read my stories, and escape reality long enough to enjoy a moment in their own private world. I like to think that each story helps readers to see their own relationships and sexuality in a new way. Whether that’s by turning them on, or just by giving the hope that true love does exist.
My second book Reflections of the Wolf, just released yesterday! It is the second in a series of Paranormal-Erotic Romance stories. The series follows the members of a werewolf pack, The Gray Pack, as they struggle to keep their true nature a secret, and find their predestined mates. Here’s a previously unreleased snippet of both books!

“How can you want me? You don’t even know me. And why are you so determined to protect me?” She sounded heartbreakingly confused, but Devin knew that now wasn’t the time for explanations. It would only succeed in making this situation harder.
He stood up and moved to her side, taking her hand and placing it on his chest, holding it against his heart firmly.
“I told you I can’t explain it all right now, but just know that I can feel my need for you deep inside of me.” As he said it he searched her eyes for some recognition of his soul. The mating bond was undeniable, and he could see her shiver at the unexpected intensity of his emotions. He knew this woman was meant for him, and he would not give her up, even if it meant sharing her with his brother. “Do you feel something when you look at me?”
“Sure, I’m attracted to you. I mean look at you. But I’m well past the age of letting lust rule my life, Devin. Sex doesn’t equal stability, and that’s what I want in my life. I need some logical answers and a plan for tomorrow.”
“I don’t mean lust, Caroline, but it’s good to know you want me as much as I want you.” He paused and watched the flush of heat rise in her cheeks and her breathing pick up. “I mean deep down, can you honestly tell me that you don’t feel a connection?”

“Damn it, Tina. I wanted you, and I don’t regret making love to you. I regret not giving you more time. More time to get to know me and understand the process you are facing becoming my mate. Stop, Sweet Tina, please don’t cry.” His rambling calmed her sobs and soothed her bruised ego just a bit. Sniffling, she lifted her eyes to his.
“Stop saying that! I’m not going to become your mate, so get it out of your head!” she said gruffly. Even she could hear the petulant frustration in her statement.
“You already are my mate, sweetheart. I can’t change it any more than you can. All that’s left is the claiming. I will give you some time to get used to the idea and get to know me, but I won’t let you go. I want to protect you, and to do that I need to keep you close.” He rested his chin on top of her head. She could hear in his tone that he had resigned himself to being with her, whether he liked her or not. She wasn’t sure why, but that bothered her immensely.
