Bonnie Bliss Blog Tour and Giveaway

Bonnie Bliss tells you the story of how I met Lilly...



Dawn slipped into the crowded coffee bistro. The tip of her tongue toyed with the corner of her mouth as she scanned the bistro in search of Lilly Cummings, the woman she was interviewing today. Lifting her arm she glanced down at her watch and realized she was about twenty minutes early. She was told what Lilly looked like, deceptively petite, long dark brown hair, big brown eyes, a body that most women would kill for, and she was generally accompanied by a chosen hulking male that could also pass as a male model. With a sigh she headed over to the counter to order a drink, she didn’t see anyone that could fit that description. Licking her lips she smiled at the attendant and placed her order. Handing over her cash, she smiled toward the woman after leaving her name. Looking down as she turned to shove her change back in her wallet, she slammed into what felt like a brick wall.
Slightly jarred, and blinking rapidly to get back her vision that appeared to be compromised after running into something she had been under the impression wasn’t there before. As the stars started to fade, and a mumbled curse escaped her, she realized that she wasn’t just staring at a very large torso, but she had run smack into a man. Her throat contracted, the saliva seemed to get stuck half way down and she was holding her breath. Slowly, her gaze traveled up till she was looking into the eyes of the most handsome man she had ever seen. Her mouth opened and shut, an apology lost somewhere in the shock that had seemed to envelop her being.
The man arched a brow, an amused smirk on his lips as she leaned down. He seemed to be nuzzling her cheek, his lips caressed her ear, a low rumbled growl. Dawn found herself pressing in against the man, his body heat like a warm blanket that soothed her tattered nerves.
“Breath, Dawn, Lilly is over in the far corner waiting for you.” He took a step back and winked.
He reached around her and grabbed her coffee drink that had been waiting at the counter. She didn’t even hear the woman call her name. Watching the handsome beast of a man she smiled and giggled awkwardly at him.
“Sorry, I—“
“No need to apologize. Just head on over, Lilly has to meet with another pack Alpha before the day is out.”
Resting his hand on her lower back, he gently nudged her in the direction of the Lilly Cummings. When her gaze found the woman in the corner table she felt like she was being consumed by unearthly beauty.
God, to be a werewolf….
The woman was stunning. Her eyes were the color of cinnamon, her skin was sun kissed and it covered a body that was built for sinning, her long hair spilled over her shoulders. She was simply dressed in a pair of skinny jeans and a white blouse, the red bra she wore under it was in view. Dawn cleared her throat and walked on knees that had turned to jelly, toward the woman. Lilly stood up as she approached.
“It is wonderful to meet you, Dawn.” She reached out a hand and took Dawn’s shivering limb in her hand.
Lilly leaned in close, mimicking the movement that the man before her had done, almost nuzzling her neck.
Did they both just sniff me? 
Shaking off the absurd thought she smiled back.
“Thank you for meeting with me.” She gestured towards the man,  who was now leaning against the wall next to them.
Lilly looked up at him.
“Oh! Sorry, that was rude. This is Wallace Kirk, the hired muscle.” A growl sounded and Dawn’s heart started to race and she swore she was getting aroused by the very idea of him in such close proximity.
Lilly laughed and turned her attention back to Dawn.
“Readers have questions?” Lilly leaned an elbow on the table and rested her chin in her palm.
Dawn, flustered, pulled out her note pad and pen and set it on the table.
“Yes, they do, just a few things. I was curious myself.”
“Well, let us get started then.” Lilly gave her a warm smile and it eased her nerves.
“Yes, right, ok.” She shifted on the chair, her own jeans were comfortable and well worn, her sweater was warm and cozy and she was starting to ease considering she had two of the most deadly creatures on either side of her.
“Lilly. Did you have an idea growing up that you had a wolf growing inside you?”
Licking her lips, Lilly leaned back, her hand came up, and she brushed her thumb over her bottom lip.
“That is a good question, because when I think back on it now, I would have to say yes. However, at that time, the things I felt, the impulse to be outside, to stay up late. To generally hand myself over to animal instincts during the full moon growing up, I had no clue what that was. I just assumed I was an odd bird, different. And I spent a lot of time trying to be as normal as possible. So yes and no.”
Dawn finished scrawling the answer down and cleared her throat before her next answer.
“The second mark, the one that is implied about in multiple books, the one on your breast.” Dawn blushed, and she swore it reached to toes. “Do you remember that mark, now, after you became your wolf.”
Lilly smiled at Dawn and looked down at her own drink, took a sip and then met her gaze.
“I remember it like it was yesterday. It was a dream, a dream I always knew had happened. I was supposed to suppress everything after that day, yet that dream stuck with me. It would tease me as a woman. It would let me know that I was being watched, protected, and that I was something more, something bigger than I could have ever dreamed.”
Dawn couldn’t help but sigh. To have that kind of connection and link, it was simply magic. She rubbed her right palm on her pants leg and looked down at her other questions. She’d got five today so she skimmed through them and picked out her next one. Her eyes moved over to Wallace and he just stared back. His expression was cold, frozen. Turning her attention back to Lilly she half whispered the next question.
“Were you in love with Wallace?”
A warning growl rumbled through the whole bistro. No one seemed to notice but Dawn and Lilly. Dawn shivered and thought about retracting the question. Lilly just looked amused and batted her lashes at Wallace before answering.
“Honestly, yes. He was my best friend, my confidant, and everything for so long. I could trust no one like I trusted Wallace. He was mine, for the years I had him, he was the love of my life.” Lilly’s gaze swept over to Wallace and there was a lingering silence that stretched. They just looked at each other, emotions and lost moments reflected in their gaze. They both said so much, without saying nothing at all.

Lilly blushed and looked down. Dawn couldn’t believe that of all people Wallace was the one that made this woman almost appear vulnerable.
“Well, yes, ok, um—“ Lilly’s attention focused again as she looked at Dawn, the next question coming out quickly.
“Is it hard to be away from Bryn during the Yearning.”
“I think that question answers itself.” Lilly took a sip and continued. “The Yearning is something I can’t explain off. No creature can know what I experience unless they are like me. It is simply the most painful experience. My body is screaming to breed, mother nature is taking it into her own hands and wielding my body to her command. She wants our race to flourish. So, she creates pain and need, two things that the animal in me can neither refuse nor deny in that moment. With Bryn gone it simply takes a more emotional toll on me. But I need the release or I will suffer. To not have Bryn ease the release is like a thousand knifes stabbing me in the heart.” She looked down, guilty and sadness marring her pretty face. “But the animal gets what that animal wants.” Shame was in that sentence and Dawn, feeling bad for the woman moved on.
“You might get a bad rep from some people. Your mate and yet you slept with others in the pack to ease the yearning. Are you proud of your choices?”
Lilly reflected on this a moment, her lips pressed together as she allowed a single finger to glide over the open rim of her coffee cup.
“I don’t think it is a matter of being proud of my choice or not. I am not a human. My choices are cut and dry when the beast needs something. On top of that, I am a woman, and my choices are never easy. For the pack, for me, I have to take the steps to keep everyone safe. I didn’t fuck any beta willy nilly. Once Wallace was aware of the situation he took control. It was something that there was no out clause. It was happening, and we either made rational choices or irrational, like my choice with Ethan.” She spat out the name like it was a disgusting piece of meat.
Dawn nodded in somewhat understanding. She looked at her watch and started to stand.
“Thank you so much for meeting with my Lilly, I think readers will like hearing about what you have to say. And maybe understand you a little better.”
Lilly took her hand and smiled, giving it a tight squeeze. “We can hope right?” She released the woman’s hand and took her seat again.
“Wallace will see you to your car. We have many enemies Dawn, we will make sure you are safely to your car.”
Dawn gulped and nodded as Wallace came to tower over her again. The heat that radiated off his body was arousing all on its own, without the chiseled features, huge chest, broad shoulders, and deep, penetrating eyes. Wallace pushed her forward with a hand at the small of her back. Walking her out of the bistro and to her car they were silent. As she got to her car door, she turned and Wallace pressed his body against hers. Pinning her against her car, she gave off a little squeak and sucked in a breath. Wallace leaned in till he was nuzzling her again, his hot breath spilled over her neck and shoulder. She felt his lips before she felt a slight nip at her flesh. Letting off a moan, Dawn’s legs turned to putty when Wallace stepped back. With a wink and a cheeky grin he turned and walked away from her.
Wow….
 When Lilly Met Bryn

Blurb:

Lilly Foster was just like every woman her age. She longed for independence, freedom, and a chance at real love, unimpeded by the clich├ęs that marred society. She was a woman that took control. If you didn’t take a chance, you could miss a great opportunity. That was, until she met Bryn Cummings, and he took over, commanding her lust and love. He collided into her life like a landslide, sucking her into his Alpha male arms. Totally lost, and suddenly submitting to this powerful man, she found that there was nothing that could stop her from experiencing all he had to offer.

Bryn Cummings has been biding his time for twenty four years, waiting in the wings for his mate to come into maturity. Having marked her at birth and on her sixteenth birthday as his, he sent his most trusted guard to stay by her side as she grew into the woman he more than lusted for. He wanted to love, dominate, and bring her to his side to rule his pack. Without shame, or fear, he swept into Lilly’s life, when she least expected it, and pulled her into a blanket of need that overwhelmed the very ground she would walk on.

In this short story, you learn about the woman that seems to lust for every wolf in the pack. Come behind the scenes to when Lilly and Bryn first met, and how the power of love, lust, and connection, create one of the most powerful Alpha mates in Europe.

**Author Note** This is a short story. It only tells of the first meeting of Lilly and Bryn and how they mated for the first time. It is not a full length story and more books will be following in the Lilly and her Wolves Series completing the story that began with Double Trouble.
