Teaser Tuesday - 2 Weeks and Counting!

It's #TeaserTuesday - and only two short weeks until Unbearable Desire, my new Lone Pine Pride novella releases!  Meet Moira and Hugo.  When an immovable object meets and irresistible force...


He sprawled in a wooden booth in the back of the bar, isolated from the locals with a battered duffle occupying the bench opposite him and a partially drained pitcher of beer at his elbow. He didn’t look up from the beer he was contemplating with an impressively dour expression.
Grouchy old bear.

Moira almost smiled. He was massive, bearded and giving off don’t-fuck-with-me vibes that kept the entire population of the bar from coming within five feet of him as effectively as a force field.
Moira marched right through the crowd, looking neither left nor right, shoved his duffle to the side and plopped onto the seat opposite him.


He lifted his head slowly, as if giving her time to retreat before his gaze made it all the way up to hers. Moira didn’t even flinch. His eyes—a lovely chocolaty brown, she observed—showed no reaction whatsoever to a tiny woman with the scent of a bear shifter dropping into the other seat at his table and saying hello. His barrel-like chest lifted on a prolonged sigh and his gaze skidded away, behind her. “Look…”

“Oh, I know,” she cut him off before he could brush her off. “You’re depressed and tragic and wallowing in self-pity and that sort of thing is really better done in solitude so you’d like me to take myself off to the bar to be hit on by the little men and leave you to your misery.” She smiled brightly. “I’m just not going to do that.”

An Unbearable Teaser

It's T-minus three weeks until UNBEARABLE DESIRE, a novella of the Lone Pine Pride, hits ereaders. So how's about a first little peek inside?  Moira is about to meet the big bad bear...

The scent of shifter hit her as soon as she opened the door to the bar. And not just any shifter. Bear.
Moira suppressed a shiver of delight, scanning the rugged and only occasionally unwashed collection of men and women in the bar, trying to trace that scent. It wasn’t one she knew.
She’d been up here by herself. Nothing quite like summer in the northern wilds. For weeks on end the sun would forget to set and days would stretch into one another in an uninterrupted sprawl of light. Moira had tramped through the scrubby trees on four paws, wary of hunters but without the constraints of any sort of regular schedule. It was heaven being unfettered up here after the months apprenticing with the healer of the Black Lake wolf pack.
But even freedom got lonely. She’d been with the pack long enough to get used to the company of other sentient beings. So today Moira had taken her human form, pulled on clothes only slightly musty from being stashed in a cave, and headed down into the one-horse town that passed for civilization out here in the back of beyond.
Who was he?
Where was he?
It was distinctly a he. If she could have done it without being obvious, she would have tipped her face back and inhaled that rich, spicy scent, trailing it through the room until she found its owner.
Then the crowd shifted and she didn’t have to bother with a search.

Hello Again

Howdy, boys and girls! 

If you're wondering if I've fallen off the edge of the world, the answer is yes, but not in the way I've sometimes done in the past.  No trips to Cambodia without internet access.  Nope.  This time my distraction is of the domestic variety.  I came down with a mild form of plague and then recently I've taken a temporary day job in order to fill in my financial blanks.  Sadly, chatting here at the blog has fallen by the wayside for a bit, but I'm still writing away.  The Lone Pine Pride lives on!  And the next release is less than a month away!

by Vivi Andrews

Their history? Complicated. Their chemistry? Incendiary.
Ten years ago, Moira shared one hot night with the bear-shifter of her dreams, but when she took him up on his offer to join him at the Lone Pine Pride, reality landed with a thud. She quickly realized that he was only looking for a momentary distraction, not a happily ever after.
She’s been trying to get over him ever since, but no other shifter has measured up to the big bad bear. 

When Hugo met Moira in a Yukon bar, he poured out his unrequited love for his alpha’s mate as he pounded down drinks. While Hugo remembers telling Moira he was emotionally unavailable, apparently she only heard his need for sexual healing.

He’s always felt guilty for unintentionally leading her on. But now that the woman he thought he wanted is finally available, he’s beginning to wonder if the one he really needs is the woman with whom he shared one incendiary night—then let slip through his fingers.
Warning: This book contains a stubborn old bear, mixed messages, mixed-up emotions, and lots of mixed drinks. Before reading, remember that the best cure for a hangover is NOT “hair of the bear”.


This one is a little novella to tide you over until the release of the next full length Lone Pine Pride book in August (more on that later this week!).  What do you say?  Do you like a novella in between the full length books of a series?
