O for Two by Holley Trent

Olivia Patterson is a rolling stone...or maybe a flying one. As a flight attendant, she lives in the air. She's never put down roots, and liked it that way...until now. When she touches down on the ground, she wants there to be someone waiting for her. For now, she'd settle for a bit of no-strings-attached company. She accepts an invitation to the Hotel Beaudelaire's exclusive Den of Sin expecting to have her kinks indulged, not her heart battered.

Clint Morstad and Ken Brook have been in a committed, monogamous relationship for eleven years and are a mostly perfect match. However, after a decade together both admit their relationship needs a feminine influence. They visit the Den to search for their perfect woman, and believe easy-going Olivia could be their ideal match.

As much as she adores them, Olivia doesn't want to get attached to men she can't keep. When she slips away before they can invite her home, Clint and Ken left with a dilemma. Should they give chase to the only woman they've wanted to share, or let her fly?

Copyright (c) Ambrielle Kirk 2014
"You do know what I'm about to ask you, right?" Blake removed a hand from the steering wheel and lightly stroked her face with the soft side of his thumb.

Naomi turned her attention from the vivid lights of the truss bridge and the smell of fresh river water. Blake was driving a little slower than usual. He was usually the speed demon out of the two of them, but that was when they were together without worries and not a care in the world. When they were both members of the Arnou Pack, they had fewer problems, but then he decided to leave and she decided to stay.


"You always have a dozen questions, Blake," she said with a slow smile. "Why don't you start with the easy questions first? Let's get those out of the way."


"Why are you so beautiful?"


A heated blush warmed her face, and she pretended to be preoccupied with the AC dial on the dashboard. "That's not an easy question."


"Okay, next question. What happened to the shy girl next door I met twelve years ago at Arnou's fireworks show?"


"I grew up."


"Into a beautiful woman." His hands were planted on the steering wheel. He stared straight ahead at the road. "You were just fifteen when I met you. So young yet so vibrant and free spirited. I remember the night of Arnou's first fireworks show as though it was yesterday. Not only was it the day I returned to town after my uncle sent Aiden and me off to spend two years at a human Ivy League school, but it also was the day I imagined a purposeful life. I had no clear direction until I saw you."


She swallowed. This conversation always made her nervous. At fifteen years old, she received the shock of her life when she discovered Blake DeLuca was her mate. How many times as a young adolescent did she hear her counterparts and friends talking about how much they wanted to find their true mates, bond and have 5.2 kids, which was the average family size in the Arnou community? Finding her mate was never a priority for her like it was for so many other women, but to her surprise, she'd caught scent of Blake when she least expected to.


Back then, all she wanted to do was to find a way to please her father and find her independence in the process.


"You had a direction. You told me how Aiden and you wanted to go in business together and own your own security agency."


"Yeah, things haven't quite happened that way. Sometimes you make plans but then better ones develop."


Naomi bit the inside corner of her mouth. "I screwed up your plans, didn't I? If you'd never met me, you would've left the Arnou Pack long before you did. You wouldn't have made it past the Elite recruitment stage if you'd have left when you said you would."
Blake turned a corner, leading them into the metropolitan area where she'd booked a hotel for a week. The hotel was in the unmarked territories, but it was better than staying on Arnou lands where anyone might notice her and report to her superiors.


"I knew I had choices back then--both inside and outside of the Arnou Pack."


"But you had far better opportunities outside of the Arnou Pack. Look at you now. You're on the Caedmon Council. You're living a life you're proud of and one in which you believe."


He stopped under a red light and turned to face her. "I never wanted to leave without you. You backed out at the last minute and it was too late. Aiden and I refused the Belt. Do you know how many wolves we crippled to break from the Arnou prison cells?"


She shook her head. "They are not prison cells."

"Close enough. He wants all of you housed right outside his backdoor in that compound."


"It was to protect us. To keep us near."


Blake frowned. "To make sure that no one strayed away from him. It's why I refused. We're not dogs and we don't wear anyone's collar let alone a belt."


Arnou-kind had talked about Blake and Aiden's refusal for months. No one had ever refused the Elite Belt. No one had gone through a full training cycle, passed with high honors, and escaped without serving.


Naomi shook her head and diverted her eyes. "I couldn't...I couldn't put my father's health on the line and my brother--"


"I know. Your brother dreamed of climbing the ranks within the Arnou Pack. Your father would've been ashamed of you. You already told me this."


Blake hit the gas as soon as the light changed to green.


"Then why bring it up? I can't wave a magic wand and change any of the past." She raised her palm, signaling the conversation was over. "We're behind this now. We've found a way to work around it."


"Work around it?" He must have lifted his foot off the gas pedal because the sports car slowed in pace. "I don't want to work around being with you. Call me selfish, but I want you in the center of my world. I want to wake in bed next to you. I want to enjoy breakfast with you every day at sunrise. When I go to bed, I not only want you as the last thing on my mind, but I also want your taste to be the last one on my lips when I drift off to sleep. I know I told you I could wait, Naomi, that I'd wait until we're old and gray, but I'm miserable trying to keep that promise. I don't like being miserable."


She sighed deeply, trying to calm her racing heart. The truth was every time Blake talked about them being together as he suggested, she became overjoyed, thinking of the possibilities. In the Elite training program, they were taught never to dream and fantasize about happily ever afters because the moment one let their emotions take over, their guards fell. Letting your guard fall meant challenging your enemies in a weak state of mind.


It was too late for her. When she escaped her short-term lock-down and walked out on her father and brother a couple days ago, she let her heart make the decision for her.


This time it was Naomi who rested her palm on his thigh. "I'm glad you think I'm beautiful, but a dose of real life and targeted training turned this shy girl next door into a bold, brave, action-oriented woman. At fifteen I met you, and you showed me I didn't have to shadow my brother to gain recognition. Like you, I had choices but mine affected the people around me directly. The only family I have left in this world are my father and brother. If I grew up knowing my mother, maybe things would've been different. She died bringing my twin brother and me into this world."


Blake's leg grew tense under her palm, and he placed a hand over hers. "I'm sorry."


"I'm being selfish too. Sometimes I have to remind myself both of your parents perished in an accident. You're so well-rounded, like the other people I know who grew up in homes with two parents."

"I had my uncle, who did right by Aiden and me. He punished us if we showed the slightest rivalry toward one another." Blake chuckled. "He told us if we wanted to fight, we should do it professionally. We both picked professions that involved the complete opposite."


Naomi smiled. "You own the shooting range and teach self-defense classes, and Aiden's the bodyguard. Funny how things turned out." She pointed to a green street sign up ahead. "North Main Street, this is it. Turn right up ahead."


"Pretty fancy for a night on the town after partying at a nightclub," Blake commented as he pulled into the parking lot. "This has got to be at least five stars."


"Good guess," she replied. "But it's for more than just a night on the town, and I didn't go to that nightclub to party."


"Your avid curiosity seems to be one trait you'll never lose." Blake grinned, put the car in park, and turned off the engine. "Which leads me to my other question..."


Enter the grand prize!

Just this month something crazy happened. We all know computers, hard drives, and such don't last forever and eventually become obsolete and out of date. And sometimes they even do rage- inducing things like crash and display error messages that look like ancient cryptic code.

Yep, it happened to me.
I lost count of the number of times that thing crashed while I was in the middle of doing something. I decided to put that PC to bed. Of course, I trouble-shooted, googled, and yelled bloody murder and even gave it to my IT guy to look at, but all arrows pointed to a hard drive that would eventually fail.

I wasn't taking any chances. Nope, not losing my work, reports, and important documents. Not if I can do something about it.



I'm already getting cozy using the new machine, but all this took quite a bit of time from writing and business related side of publishing.

The good thing is that because of my auto-sync with OneDrive (SkyDrive) and a quick back up to Dropbox, I salvaged almost everything of importance. With the exception of a few *clears throat* inspirational pics of handsome men in all stages of dress and undress. But those come a dime a dozen right? I'll eventually find some more.

So, I said all that to say this: Delays abound.

Not too bad since the whole scenario happened over a span of a few weeks.

I'm currently working on Taken by Temptation and the 3rd book in the Rugged Riders series. Some of the events happen simultaneously and these brothers are so closely connected that I figured keeping the writing of books 2 and 3 together would be my best bet. That also means that the releases will likely be closer together too.



I have a title for the 3rd book, which is about Marcus's brother, Sean: Seduced by Sin.


I'm working to get Taken by Temptation up at retailers by July.


Seduced by Sin will follow next.
Next on my radar are Donor Reloaded, which is the follow up to Dresdan Coven #1, and another bad boy outlaw book. That means Elaina is back and itching to take down District 5 and Dane Magnus isn't the only outlaw about to meet his match.
The next set of Den of Sin novellas will release in June. My contribution this season is Illicit Passions.
I also have a few surprises this month regarding the Caedmon Wolves. I'm still working out the details, but won't leave you waiting too much longer. If you haven't already, please like the Caedmon/Arnou Wolf Pack Facebook Page and signup to receive my newsletter.

Paige Houston has always been known by her friends for having her nose stuck in a book. Reading is her escape and the hotter the plot, the better. Unlike the heroines in her sexy stories, she hasn’t had much luck in the romance department. Her sorority sister dares her to indulge in a one night stand at a secret club where strings are never attached and holds are rarely barred. Paige’s adventurous side won’t allow her to pass up the opportunity.

Corey Shelton has his hands full these days. After inheriting a car repair shop from his late grandfather, he’s been working day in and day out on a business re-launch. He has no time for needy women and he’d encountered a string of them in this town lately. When one of his most respected client’s convinces him to fill out a matchmaking profile to attend a secret den of sin, he blindly agrees.

When Corey gets the invite to the Hotel Beaudelaire along with a note from Paige about her erotic fantasies, his libido goes into overdrive and he just has to have her.

It's been a long time since I've rambled on the blog about what I'm writing, what I'm going to write, etc. etc. So here I am...


I imagine that this Spring and Summer will be just like any other. The weather is beautiful outside and naturally that is where I want to be. I also want to be shopping and lounging around watching back to back action movies too, but we'll save that discussion for another time. While I can't avoid these temptations, I can create aversions by immersing myself with books, both reading and writing.


But there's this thing called writer's block. I don't even know if I want to call it that. For me, I can define it as a short (or long) period of time where I know I should be writing (books of course) but hesitate because the idea hasn't fully developed yet. And when an idea hasn't developed, there is this period of stalling. And thinking. And researching. And pondering. And...you get the idea. Well, stalling on one project does none of my works in progress any justice. So I've been fighting to deal with that and my solution right now is to write the story that has fully developed and calls to me. In some cases, it is the story that is first on my priority list and in other cases it is a story that is so far down on the priority line, I sometimes wonder how it emerged again so quickly. Characters are pesky when they want to be and not when you force them to be.


Which leads me to my next two upcoming releases:


Shifter Untamed

Illicit Passions (Den of Sin)



Shifter Untamed

In a world where humans and shifters live side-by-side, two lives come together...


Dane Magnus fought for and won the position of Pack Alpha, but to legally inherit the land left by his late human mother, the outlaw shifter needs to marry a human.


Trina Daniels needs six figures to pay for her dad's surgery. Money she doesn't have. She's willing to do whatever it takes, even if it means pursuing drastic measures, such as the ruthless womanizing Dane.


But when outside sources begin to threaten their chances as well as their lives, they only have each other to rely on.




Illicit Passions

Paige Houston has always been known by her friends for having her nose stuck in a book. Reading is her escape and the hotter the plot, the better. Unlike the heroines in her sexy stories, she hasn't had much luck in the romance department. Her sorority sister dares her to indulge in a one night stand at a secret club where strings are never attached and holds are rarely barred. Paige's adventurous side won't allow her to pass up the opportunity.


Corey Shelton has his hands full these days. After inheriting a car repair shop from his late grandfather, he's been working day in and day out on a business re-launch. He has no time for needy women and he'd encountered a string of them in this town lately. When one of his most respected client's convinces him to fill out a matchmaking profile to attend a secret den of sin, he blindly agrees.


When Corey gets the invite to the Hotel Beaudelaire along with a note from Paige about her erotic fantasies, his libido goes into overdrive and he just has to have her.


Series Snapshot

I've also recently been asked if I had any other ongoing series besides the Caedmon Wolves (wolf shifter) one. On each of the series pages, I've added a brief introduction about the theme and paranormal creature (if any). Hopefully, those that come across my website, will find it easier to make their choice.



Rugged Riders is a name for a contemporary romance theme centered around a group of brothers connected by blood, bond, or both. Rugged Riders is not a motorcycle club (MC) romance, but rather focuses on the lives of the brothers whose interests may involve motorcycles, hot cars, smart beautiful woman, and successful business ventures (basically any or all of the above). The men are Alpha bad boys. Each book in the Rugged Riders collection can be read as a stand alone as each story is centered around a hero, heroine, and their own goals and inner battles.



Blood Legends is a series set in an urban fantasy world on Middle Earth. Additional installments are meant to be read in series order. The main and secondary characters are vampires, werewolves, demons, and witches/wizards. The protagonist, Mona, is constantly put into situations where she must choose between her life and the lives of others. She must choose between love and friendship. She must choose between honor and duty. The hero (or rather heroes) must stand by the woman deemed to be their savior even when they disagree with her. The heroes also have a vested duty to secure the continuity of their own race.



Caedmon Wolves is a paranormal romance series set in the United States. The Pack Council is headquartered out of Virginia near the Mountains and is led by Alpha Devin Caedmon. In this world there are werewolves, humans, and Others. The main series arc revolves around the warring between two factions—the werewolves and Others. There is also conflict between the various Packs as they fight to gain the dominate foothold in North America. The installments have been written to compliment the series arc but with just enough information for readers to follow through should they start mid-series. However, it is recommended that the installments be read in order. Each installment features a new couple which satisfies the romance aspect of this paranormal romance series. Readers should be aware that the CW series and MAIN plot arc are heavy on paranormal world building.


Arnou Wolves is a spin-off paranormal romance series set in the same world as Caedmon Wolves. Like CW, Each installment features a new couple which satisfies the romance aspect of this paranormal romance series. Readers should be aware that the CW series and MAIN plot arc are heavy on paranormal world building.



The first book, Shifter Untamed, in this collection is part of the Bad Boy series at AllRomance.com. The Aspen Valley outlaws is a paranormal world in a contemporary setting. The Pack is headquartered in a fictional town, Aspen Valley. In these books, humans are well aware that wolf shifters exists. Some are opposed to the idea of having shape-shifting humans dangerous and roaming free and do whatever it takes to restrict their rights. Others do not care one way or the other. This is not a series where each book has to be read one after the other, but a collection. The brothers are connected to a group known as the Aspen Valley Outlaws. Future installments in the AVO collection can be read as a stand alone as each story is centered on a hero, heroine, and their own goals and inner battles.



Dresdan Coven is a paranormal romance series whose otherworldly entities involve vampires and hybrids. There are humans too. In this world, the vampires are called Dresdan, which is an ancient race whose origins date back to 2 BC. They are most deadly and ruthless of all vampire species and most all the other species have either died out or have been annihilated. The main series arc revolves around bringing down District 5, whose mission involves the inhuman treatment of humans as they aim to create a hybrid between human and Dresdan. The books will focus on one couple, Elaina and Vicq, through their struggles and victories. Additional installments of DC are meant to be read in series order.



Soul Bond is a paranormal romance series whose otherworldly entities involve demons and witches (or humans). The theme centers on a family of witches with the power to voluntarily or involuntarily summon a demon from Otherworld to Earth through the Book and Ring of Power. These witches unknowingly start a chain of events that will thrust them into the unfamiliar realms of Otherworld and their power struggles. The installments have been written to compliment the series arc but with just enough information for readers to follow through should they start mid-series. However, it is recommended that the installments be read in order. Each installment features a new couple which satisfies the romance aspect of this paranormal romance series. Readers should be aware that the SB series and MAIN plot arc are heavy on paranormal world building.

 I'm participating in the My Writing Process (MWP) blog feature. The wonderful Lena Hart invited me to participate. Lena Hart writes sensual, interracial romances with a hint of mystery and danger.
Please check out her work at http://www.lenahartsite.com/my-books.html

1)      What am I working on?

Right now, I'm multi-tasking on several different projects. These are either in the idea generating, plotting or writing stage. My primary genres are paranormal and contemporary so my work in process binder usually includes a mixture of those genres. The cycle is sort of never-ending, but that is the job and the passion of a writer.

As far as specific project, I'm closing out my next contribution to the Den of Sin series. It's titled Illicit Passion. Librarian-type heroine meets mechanic-type bad boy. Opposites collide and flames combust. If you're not familiar with the Den of Sin books, please check out our website http://denofsinseries.com.

2)      How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I aim to create a world or setting that is unique and fresh. Whether that's by adding multi-dimensional layers or subplots or by putting a complicated twist on tried and true troupes, I'm up for the challenge.

3)      Why do I write what I do?

I don't know if I can write anything else but romance. Everyone should have a happy ending, even if some days it's through the eyes of their favorite characters.

4)      How does your writing process work?

That totally depends on which stage I am in the project. My ideas usually start off as a seed. It could take months to germinate and sometimes it only takes hours. It depends on how persistent the characters are and how effectively I can get the plot on paper. If the plot hasn't brewed enough, I store the idea until I can do it justice. I write from beginning to end, but I can plot stories starting at the beginning, middle, finale, or inciting incident. When the first draft is done, I revise by scene and make sure that I've covered all the bases and closed up any plot points that warrant closure. My writing ideas generally come from any and everywhere. As a writer, I observe and absorb everything around me, sometimes unconsciously.

Thank you for visiting and reading about my writing process.



Until next time, keep reading and writing.


Ambrielle Kirk

 
 
Alpha Male Madness Hop
Welcome to the next stop on the Seriously Shifter Giveaway Hop!

I have a seriously sexy alpha male down below to share. Aiden Price is the Hero in Wolf's Desire (Caedmon Wolves, 4).
"Tell me where it hurts." - Aiden to Keira (in Wolf's Desire)
If you aren't familiar with the Caedmon Wolves series, here's a quick trailer for your viewing pleasure:
As for the prize, I'm giving away an autographed print copy of Wolf's Desire to 2 lucky winners.
Wolf's Desire (Caedmon Wolves, 4)

When Keira becomes a widow, she realizes that the life she once had wasn't normal after all. After her husband is brutally murdered, she is more than just alone but vulnerable to threats and tangled in a web of greed. Her decisions lead her into a corner, and safety is jeopardized.

Aiden, Caedmon Council member, has never failed when it comes to fulfilling the terms of his employment contract. When he is hired to protect an heiress, he doesn't plan on her being the only woman to bring both challenge and purpose in his life. Without hesitation, he vows to keep the grieving Keira safe--even from himself.

Keira trusts Aiden unconditionally and finds joy whenever they are together, but can love transcend a tragedy? Aiden’s urge to protect her is just as great as his desire to claim her. Once the passion is unleashed and fueled by the need to have all of her, the wolf will accept nothing less than his mate.


Don't forget to hop on over to the next blog on the list.
