What’s ten million to a multi-billionaire, when he wants someone worth much more?
When Dylan Howell is handed over to a ruthless tiger to pay his father’s business debt, he’s sure his life is over. He won’t be used and abused as a sexual slave to the shifter, no matter how much he craves Jameson Ravensworth’s touch.
Jameson knows the omega lion is his from the minute the man walks into his office. The money means nothing to him, not when something he desires more is offered up to him.
Dylan struggles to fend off Jameson and his wicked lusts. The lion soon learns the depths of Jameson’s dark delights as well as senses his own depravity. As his body is tormented, he grows closer to the tiger, but how can he fall in love when he’s owned body and soul?
I was writing this very boring, very blah post where I skipped about, talking about how much I love Halloween… which led me to how much I love all the creatures who go bump in the night… and then on to my love of the Immortals After Dark series… and on to how I met Kresley Cole at RT in New Orleans…
And then, I realized it was a total snoozefest, deleted the lot of it (you’re welcome), and then focused on the part that really interested me—New Orleans. (Sorry, KC is absolutely amazing, but if we’re talking Halloween, then it’s NOLA all the way!)
Show of hands—who’s been to the French Quarter?
It’s one of my absolute favorite places on earth and when you’re there, you can feel the thick, rich past comingling with the paranormal hovering on the other side of the veil. No doubt about it, the place is creepy in the best kind of way.
Past and present merge in the Crescent City. From the amazing architecture, the jazz music you can hear from just about every corner, to the hundreds of dead resting under the boiling sun and tempting you for a visit—the city’s rich supernatural history is just waiting to be undug.
One of my favorite spots in town are the city of the dead. NOLA’s cemeteries are a wonderfully eerie places to visit, no matter the time of year, but on All Hallow’s Eve, the dead seem to grow impatient with the living. You can sense their desire to reach through and touch life once more.
And perhaps some do.
Voodoo, Hoodoo, and Catholicism blend together to create the city’s own allegory. There is no place like it in the world. No wonder so many paranormal authors use it as a backdrop for their stories. The wild and the weird are the norm in NOLA, and what better place for an alpha werewolf or a tiger shifter to hide amongst humans?
The city has found its way into several of my books and after writing this post, I just might have to write another.
I’m kicking myself in the arse at the moment, because Chained to the Tiger’s Bed might have been more fun if it had taken place in New Orleans instead of New York. What was I thinking?
