Wolf, in League by AF Henley: Blog Tour and Giveaway

The greatest gift of doing a blog tour is being able to touch base with old friends, and Cinderella Stories and I go back a long way. That’s one of the great things about the Internet, isn’t it? Being half a world away doesn’t really mean a thing when it comes to associates and acquaintances, and that is truly a blessing. So it’s an honour to be back as a guest and a friend, and I’m looking forward to sharing with you all the newest release in my Wolf series: Wolf, in League. For those that are joining the tour for the first time, welcome! And for those who have been here before, it’s amazing to see you again.

As I’ve done with the rest of the tours for these Wolf releases, this blog tour and giveaway is all about teasers. Tiny teasers, to be most accurate, which I like to think of as nothing more than a “bite” to whet your “appetite” for the rest. But before I let you get to it, I want to let you know about the giveaway that comes along with the tour. Follow through to the end of the post to learn how you could win your very own signed, print copy of Wolf in League, a “crystal and silver” diamante Howling Wolf Pendant, and a $20 gift certificate to the Less Than Three Press book market.

And now, the teaser, and an inside—or should I say outside—look at the GDBCG…

Tiny Teaser: Post 2

It wasn’t the stars that drew him here in the wee hours of the morning, though. It was the bats. There was something about the construction of the Center that drew a bucket load of bats, not that Matthew could have said what it was. The thing he found most interesting about the phenomena was that one could find them swooping and swaying around the building’s concrete block walls and its flat, thermoplastic roof at times other than the hour or so between dusk and darkness. Common sense told Matthew it had to do with insect population, reflective lighting, and a lack of predators, but the owls and hawks that were common to the area made that last reason somewhat unlikely.

Who really knew, though? Maybe the same things that kept the doctors peeking covertly at dark shadows kept the smarter birds of prey away as well. Regardless, Matthew found himself staring at the tiny, black, soundless beasts for stretches of time that surprised him when he finally thought to check his watch. For creatures of the night with all kinds of Hollywood superstitions behind them, they were surprisingly peaceful to watch.

He’d just told himself that he’d better be heading back in when a sound seemed to brush past his ear. He cocked his head, paused, and listened. He almost thought it could have been one of the bats, drawn by the light or maybe the scent of his cologne, but if it had been a bat, then it was one of the most talented bats in history. Because there’d been something awfully weird in the way it had sounded. If he’d been asked to say what that oddness was, he would have had no choice but to admit—foolishly, really—that he’d heard someone speak. His name, even. Which was more ridiculous than imagining someone had spoken in the first place. He was six stories off the ground. He could see every inch of the otherwise empty balcony. Besides, there was no one else on the level Matthew occupied but for a security guard who had been half-asleep, if not completely asleep, when Matthew had walked past him twenty minutes ago; Matthew had checked the sign-in roster just to make sure because he’d wanted to have a chat with one of his colleagues regarding a certain finding Matthew had stumbled across the night before. And there were no after-hours visitors allowed, without exception. Even during the day, not even an expected guest would get past the security gate without a badge—a badge which automatically added their name, picture, and personal details to the roster so that anyone who was anyone would know where they were allowed to be and where they were not. If there was someone out in the darkness whispering his name at barely audible levels, it had to be one of the bats. Or a very talented deer with the ability to fly.

Matthew flipped up his collar, shook his head and turned back to the door that he’d left propped open behind him. The doors were all glass. The windows were glass. Glass, glass, everywhere glass. He’d often figured it was there for security more than just an effort to soften the rest of the cold concrete building. After all, it was easy to see through; nothing could hide behind a glass door. It was also reflective.

So when he saw a face—a smirk, bright eyes, sharp cheekbones—shining back at him, Matthew startled. He whirled back to face the balcony.

There was no one there. Just the stars and bats above him, and the trees, manicured lawn, and fading gardens below him.

Wolf, in League

It’s been months since anyone at the Committee has had any contact from the O’Connell family or their pack members, and they are not happy. Suspicious of the activities that took place in D.C. and determined to find out what the wolves are up to, the Committee recruits one of their newest residents, Doctor Matthew Dietrich, to play the part of neighbor and infiltrate the family.

Matthew has always been a keep-to-himself kind of person. Though idealistic and optimistic, he prefers to work in solitude, at night, while he researches the findings that he hopes will one day change the world. When he’s approached by the executives of the Center, he has no idea why they’d choose him. And to say he is skeptical over the concept of men that can shift into wolves would be an understatement. Until he meets his new partner, the man that will play the part of his “husband” in the Committee’s scheme, Doctor Gavin Strauss.

Genre: Gay, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

Notes: Wolf, in League contains some explicit and violent content

    • Thank you! I hope you love it if/when you get a chance to read!

      It’s funny (funny strange, not funny ha-ha!) that I always, always forget about the time difference for Jho and I so I had to run back over to the Rafflecopter and update it for those of you who caught the post already! I hope you got your fair shot in on the giveaway.

      Always glad to see you on the tour! Thank you so much for your kind comment. ❤

  1. Good news is that the creepy is still there. The better news is that Matthew is no longer attached to said creepy, and that’s right good fine with me, I say.

    Excuse my language. I’ve been working with more than the usual one. =P

    So, being 12 hours ahead means we get two sets in one day and none tomorrow. 😄

    • Maybe just a wee bit of creepy. And I’m pretty sure he’ll stay away from the creepy for oh… I don’t know… another page or two? LOL

      Thank you for noticing the post going up and coming by to comment! ❤

  2. There is something about buildings like the GDBCG at least as I imagine them. Anonymous, totally cold in their utilitarian way, no one knowing what is going on inside. Scientists doing their god knows what kind of work. And yes, maybe beasts howling from the dark depths of the basement.

    And outside. Bats, hawks, owls. Something unknown, unseen whooshing by, names whispered. This novel must have been written for a month like October. 😀

    What a perfect way to introduce the GDBCG! 😀

    • Thank you! Buildings like this always creep me out as well. Although I do kind of like watching the bats swoop. 😄

      Thank you very much for commenting, my friend. I always enjoy them. ❤

  3. You know, the auditory hallucination of hearing your name in random sounds is quite common really. It’s woken me out of quite a few dreams. Or just back to wakefulness as I am just on the edge of sleep. Or when I’m listening to music and I could have sworn someone called me.

    The only time this worries me is when I’m having a sexy dream and I can swear I heard someone moan in pleasure inside my room. It’s either a horny ghost, or I made a very embarrassing sound that can be heard through the thin walls. xD

    Chills were received, sir. Reminds me of my office late at night. I can still hear those voices in my dreams. *shudder*

    • Now that sounds perfectly creepy-cool! It makes sense but I’ve never stopped to think about it. The one that always gets me is knocking while I’m drifting off to sleep. I could swear that I’ve heard it but nothing/no one is ever there.

      Always happy to hear I’ve passed on some chills. Thank you! ❤

    • Thank you! I’m glad it was able to inspire your interest! 😀

      I promise they won’t all be creepy. There is definitely some romance in here somewhere. 😄

      Thank you for reading and commenting! ❤

    • I never thought about that; you’re absolutely right. Those people at LT3 know what they’re doing. 😀

      Thanks for reading and commenting. Hope it wasn’t too spooky! ❤

    • Thank you! At the last place I lived there was a huge open area surrounded by trees. In the right season the bats would be out there every night. I also thought they were oddly romantic! *highfives you*

      Thanks so much for reading and commenting. ❤

  4. I absolutely loved the teaser and it really makes me want to keep reading! I have the other two but haven’t caught up yet. Thank you for sharing!

  5. Hohoho, late reader present herself. 😀 Currently laying in the bed (at 2am) while reading this post and I must say that if the teaser did catch my attention, that blurb made me want to rush and buy own copy. Too bad I desperately need a lot of sleep in the coming nights so this book have to wait in line because I suspect that it will keep me up at all night. Joining the giveaway for now.

    Congrats for the new release Henley!

    • Thank you very much! I’m glad you were inspired! 😀 I promise, it’s really not that scary. Maybe just in a couple of spots. But I’m happy to hear that you’re going to get some sleep instead of read anyway. 😄

      Thank you for joining the tour! ❤
