Saving Margaret by Krystal Shannan

Today I’m hosting author extraordinaire Krystal Shannan as she tours to promote her new book Saving Margaret. Krystal has a fantastic excerpt below. Read on for more info!


Vegas Mates, Book 2


Krystal Shannan


Successful, but lonely, Margaret Taylor finds her mate in the body of a man she least expects it in. A bear! Her human half tries to reason her way out of the match, but her wolf is through with her excuses. Crossing the species line isn’t unheard of, but it’s not often done.


Try as she might to avoid him, fate makes sure the big grizzly bear is nearby at all times. But, will his presence be enough to protect her from the evil stalking her?


The power of the magick between them can’t be avoided. But, Scott O’Hearn thinks the beautiful Taylor wolf is doing a fine job of just that —avoiding him. He can’t help he’s a bear shifter and he’s determined to convince her it doesn’t matter. She is his mate and he’s waited over a century to find her.


Will he convince Margaret she’s his true match before it’s too late?


Excerpt #16




She pressed the bathroom door closed and leaned against it. Her breathing was short, sporadic. Everything had been going smoothly until he had moved in and kissed her neck. His scent had overwhelmed her senses. Her wolf was screaming mate and he was whispering about taking her off to the forests of Utah.

Holy crap!

The urge to plaster her body against his was frightening. How could the magick pull so strongly in such a short time? Human’s joked about love at first sight, but the saying had probably been started by a couple of shifters. There was no way humans ever had to deal with emotions or hormones this powerful.

“Why are you in the bathroom?”

I needed a minute.

“We need to go back to our mate.”

No! He’s acting like I’m his for the taking already. Like I get no say in how this plays out, simply because we are good matches for a mating bond.

“Good? Sweetie, he is our perfect match. Those only come around once…if they come around at all.”

I have a life. A job. A career. What about that? Am I supposed to just drop everything because the hottest guy I’ve ever met walked through the door and said, ‘hey babe, your mine’?
