Today it is my great pleasure to welcome a wonderful writer and very good friend - Ashlyn Chase. Flirting Under a Full Moon, Book 1 in her new "Flirting with Fangs" series is released this week and we have an exclusive SNEAK PEEK!
Here is the BLURB:
Brandee has been dumped in every way possible, but by text is the last straw. That's it—she's officially done with men. Unfortunately, she's just been told her "soul mate" is the drool-worthy hottie all her friends call One-Night Nick
Nick has been searching for true love for one hundred years. After all, werewolves mate for life, and he does not want to mess this up. As soon as he kisses Brandee, he knows she's the one. But how will he convince a woman who knows nothing of paranormals that she's about to be bound to a werewolf forever?
And now for the exclusive SNEAK PEEK from Flirting Under a Full Moon:
“Red or white wine?”
"Do you like it dry?”
“I prefer it wet.”
He laughed, then opened a wine fridge. “How about Sauvignon Blanc?”
“Not usually. But you swept me off my feet.”
He chuckled again. “I’m glad you seem to be in a better mood.” He poured two glasses, then handed her one. She followed him to the living area and sat next to him on the sofa.
“Is it okay if I kick off my shoes?”
“Make yourself comfortable.”
She did. With her stocking feet curled up under her thighs, she faced him and lifted her glass.
“Cheers,” he said.
“You know that’s the name of a rival bar, right?”
“Oh, right. Well then, Boston Uncommon! Where everybody knows you’re strange.”
She giggled and they clinked glasses.
After each of them took a sip, he asked, “So, how do we start this?”
She knew what he meant. She had asked for this conversation, but knowing where to begin was daunting. Might as well jump in anywhere.
“I think we need to talk about what we expect from each other.”
He nodded. “Okay. You go first.”
Lovely. Now she had to figure out how to put her feelings into words. “I guess I just want a normal boyfriend.”
He let out a loud guffaw. “Boy, did you come to the wrong place. No wonder you’re disappointed.”
“I never said I was disappointed. I just think we went a little too far too fast. Maybe because we’ve known each other for a while, we thought we knew-knew each other better than we do.”
“Hmmm…Okay. I think I get it. You missed the old fashioned courting thing?”
“Huh? No. I don’t need that. I just think we should have gone on a few dates, talked about ourselves, our pasts, our present, and maybe the future.”
“Oh, is that what dating is for?” he asked, with a teasing smile.
She rolled her eyes. “Sheesh, I forgot. How would a player like you know that, especially if you’ve never done it?”
“I’ve done it…superficially. I just never got wrapped up in anyone’s life before.”
“Yeah. I think that’s the problem. You got too wrapped up in mine, instantly.”
“Hey, when it’s right, it’s right. Why waste time?” He gave her another teasing grin.
“Stop being charming for five minutes, will you?”
Instead of listening to her, he leaned in for a kiss. And instead of meeting his lips, she raised her glass of wine and took a big sip.
He sighed and leaned back into the loose pillows. “Cock blocked by my own crystal.”
Early reviews for Flirting Under a Full Moon:
4.50/5—Reviewer Top Pick
"This is the first installment of Ms. Chase's new Flirting series. This was a wonderful start to a very lighthearted series. I can't wait for the next installment in this series to come out! I know other readers will enjoy getting swept away as much as I did."
—Robin, Night Owl Romance
Ashlyn Chase describes herself as an Almond Joy bar. A little nutty, a little flaky, but basically sweet, wanting only to give her readers a scrumptious, satisfying, reading experience. She holds a degree in behavioral sciences, worked as a psychiatric RN for several years and spent a few more years working for the American Red Cross where she still volunteers as an instructor. She credits her sense of humor to her former careers since comedy helped preserve whatever was left of her sanity. She is a multi-published, award-winning author of humorous erotic romances.
