Tamed by a Tiger by Felicity Heaton ~ Excerpt & Giveaway~


Tamed by a Tiger (Eternal Mates Paranormal Romance Series Book 13) by Felicity Heaton 
– Book Tour and Giveaway!

A snow leopard shifter in the prime of his life, the last thing on August’s mind is tying himself to one female. He welcomes a different one to his bed each night, or at least he had until five months ago when he became alpha. The duties and pressures of running his pride have his libido dead on arrival—until a trip to London to discuss business with the former alpha lands him in the path of a beautiful, bewitching tigress who awakens a passion in him that flares white hot and a need of her that consumes his every moment.

Promised at birth to a male she has never met, Maya has left her pride behind to go to the tiger alpha who is to be her mate, but she can’t leave without saying goodbye to her older brother, Talon. A stop in London at Underworld to see him one last time turns out far different, and far more dangerous, than how she had imagined it when she sets eyes on an alluring crimson-haired stranger who stirs new, unbidden feelings in her, desires that rouse her fiercest and most frightening instincts and demand she stake a claim on him—her fated mate.
Will Maya be strong enough to place her pride and her family’s safety before the desires of her own heart? And will August unravel his feelings for the black-haired beauty before it’s too late and he loses her forever?

Q & A

My writing process:

Involves a tremendous amount of wine, hand-wringing, and naps. I really love to nap. It's a cherished hobby. I can plot out an entire novel during a 45-minute nap if I let it simmer in my head before hopping into bed. I think my brain doesn't like to have me coming at it in full-frontal assault mode, but if I trick it by pretending I'm going to sleep for a while, my muse comes out to play and everyone gets along famously. I've been known to leap out of bed screaming, "That's it!" So far, I've convinced my husband not to commit me to a mental institution, but I have no guarantees for the future. (He's pretty sleepy, too, so I might be safe.)



My Top 5 all time favorite reads: 

Everything Matters, by Ron Currie, Jr.
Geek Love, by Katherine Dunn
The Road, by Cormac McCarthy (NOT THE MOVIE!)
The Bridges of Madison County, by Robert James Waller (NOT THE MOVIE!)
Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Lainie Taylor

All of these books have left a lasting impression on me, even after many years from my first reading. Everything Matters and Geek Love are outrageously unique, with interesting, quirky characters, insanely different plots, and a lot of moral ambiguity that forces the reader to question their own beliefs. The Road by Cormac McCarthy is a haunting, exquisite piece of literature with the kind of ambiguous ending that leaves you devastated. I sobbed my way through The Bridges of Madison County because at the time I read it--in my early twenties--I thought it was the most romantic thing I'd ever encountered. I love it when one of the main characters dies at the end because it's so REAL. I've never cried so much reading a book since. And Daughter of Smoke and Bone is gorgeously wrought, with an achingly beautiful central love story that's almost as important as the underlying message of the futility of hatred and the power of the individual (and love) to change the world. 

Favorite Movies/TV programs:

My top 3 fav movies are (in order) Moulin Rouge, The Princess Bride, and Pride & Prejudice, the Keira Knightley version. I can watch any of those over and over, and regularly do.

Close runners-up are anything Monty Python, anything Mel Brooks (Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein especially), Six Feet Under (TV) Deadwood (TV) and Game of Thrones (Go Khaleesi!)

Favorite Foods:

Cheese. (I was a mouse in a former life.)
Tortilla chips and spicy salsa. 
Meatballs. I've never met a meatball I didn't love.
Wine. (This counts as food in my house.)
Anything Mexican, Italian, or French. Also Chinese food is amazing, as is Thai and Indian and everything else. So basically food. All food is my favorite. My ideal dream job would be a food writer who travels the world and reports on different restaurants. And visits the local spas and reports on those, too. And takes many naps. *sigh*


When Did you know writing was what you wanted to do:

As a kid, I always hated the question, "What do you want to do when you grow up?" Like, seriously? I'M TEN. I think we put too much pressure on people to FIND THAT ONE THING, when a life might encompass many different paths and careers. I've always been an entrepreneur because I'm too stubborn and impatient to work for anyone else--and I don't work well in groups--but I've done things as diverse as being a headhunter to a florist. I've always been a voracious reader, however. I read anything and everything, and don't discriminate by genre. I grew up with parents who read everything, too. Our house was littered with books, newspapers, and magazines. My father's study was packed to the ceiling with books about WWII, and my mother read The New York Times every day from cover to cover, and did the crossword in pen

But I suppose I'm a late bloomer, because it wasn't until my 40th birthday that I realized I wanted to write a novel. So I did. Seven years and fifteen novels later, here we are.

The marriage is fake. But for a sassy chef and an arrogant billionaire, the sparks are real…
Jackson “The Beast” Boudreaux is rich, gorgeous, and unbelievably rude to the staff in Chef Bianca Hardwick’s New Orleans restaurant. Bianca would sooner douse herself in hot sauce than cook for Jackson again, but when he asks her to cater his fund-raiser, Bianca can’t refuse, knowing the cash will help pay her mother’s medical bills. Then Jackson makes another outrageous request: Marry me. Jackson’s unconventional offer includes an enormous sum, money Bianca desperately needs, even if it does come with a contract—and a stunning ring.
The heir to a family bourbon dynasty, Jackson knows the rumors swirling around him. The truth is even darker. Still, he needs a wife in order to secure his inheritance, and free-spirited, sassy Bianca would play the part beautifully. Soon, though, their simple business deal evolves into an emotional intimacy he’s built walls to avoid.
As the passion heats up between them, Bianca and Jackson struggle to define which feelings are real and which are for show. Is falling for your fake fiancĂ© the best happy ending…or a recipe for disaster?

Seeing Red by Sandra Brown

Kerra Bailey is a television journalist on the rise, and she’s hot on the trail of a story guaranteed to skyrocket her career to even greater heights: an interview with the legendary Major Trapper. Twenty-five years ago, the Major emerged a hero from the bombing of the Pegasus Hotel in downtown Dallas when he was photographed leading a handful of survivors out of the collapsing building. The iconic picture transformed him into a beloved national icon, in constant demand for speeches and interviews—until he suddenly dropped out of the public eye, shunning all members of the media. However, Kerra is willing to use any means necessary to get to the Major—even if she has to wrangle an introduction from his estranged son, former ATF agent John Trapper.

Still seething over his break with both the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and his father, John Trapper wants no association with the hotel bombing or his hero father, and spurns the meddling reporters determined to drag them back into the limelight. Yet Kerra’s sheer audacity and tantalizing hints that there’s more to the story rouse Trapper’s interest despite himself. And when her interview of a lifetime goes catastrophically awry—with unknown assailants targeting not only the Major, but also Kerra—Trapper realizes he needs her under wraps if he’s going to track down the gunmen before they strike again...as well as discover, finally, who was responsible for the Pegasus bombing.

Kerra is wary of a man so charming one moment and dangerous the next, and she knows Trapper is withholding evidence collected during his ATF investigation into the bombing. But having no one else to trust and enemies lurking closer than they know, Kerra and Trapper join forces and risk their lives to expose a sinuous network of lies and conspiracy running deep through Texas—and uncover who would want a national hero dead.

Love, betrayal, and sweet revenge--life in Cottonbloom is about to get a whole lot hotter . . .

Crown of Betrayal by Graceley Knox


Now that the threat to Ever is imprisoned and gone for good, she can focus on what really matters: getting rid of the goblins living in her house as “protection” and getting back to work capturing rogue Fae for the Magical Enforcement and Containment Agency. 
Too bad fate doesn’t agree with her plans. Ever’s mother is still missing, and Ever and her crew must find an ancient race long believed dead. As questions pile up and danger creeps closer, Ever can no longer deny the pull Dare has over her heart. And her body. As they forge a new bond, betrayal strikes, and it’s closer to home than either of them could have imagined. Trouble stirs. 

Alliances fall. The only thing that binds them together is the trust they’ve put in each other and the emotions Ever refuses to name. Everything starts to crumble, and those Ever protects are no longer free from danger. Will she keep those she holds dear safe? Or will she be left to pick up the pieces?
