Hello readers, I’m Liam Gray. I’m the hero in Lori King’s newest book Reflections of the Wolf, as well as the best looking Werewolf in The Gray Pack…just don’t mention that to my Alpha’s Devin and Damon Gray, thanks.
Lori volunteered to write a post for Silken Sheets to share her characters with you, and I told her that there was no better way to get to know me, then to let me write the post myself. So I guess I’ll share a little bit about myself. Like I said, I’m a werewolf and I live with the rest of my pack at our den just outside of Kansas City. I work in the human world as a firefighter for the KCFD, and I spent four years in the Marines. I have two younger brothers, and a younger sister, and I just met my mate Tina this fall.
Well it’s about time you got to me.
Shit. Readers, let me introduce my mate, Tina Jameson. The sweetest, sexiest, most understand…
Cut it out Hotshot. I don’t need butter on my ass. I only came by to make sure that you didn’t screw these poor readers up with some crazy misinformation.
Nah, Sweet Tina. I was just telling them my stats.
Did you tell them the good ones?
What do you mean the good ones?
Okay ladies, here’s what you really want to know. He’s 6ft tall, dark hair, ice blue eyes, muscles that ooze out from under his shirt, and twitch when I run my hands over them. His skin is a golden brown color that makes him look like a Native American Warrior, and to top it off he has a tattoo on one bicep, and piercings. Eyebrow, and ear to be precise. And as far as his package goes…
Hell no. We are not broadcasting my package to all of the readers out there.
Why not? That’s what they want to know.
*growling*Tina I’m not playing with you. Why don’t you tell them about yourself, if you’re so determined to share information.
Fine. I will. You already know my name, but what you don’t know is that I’m human, or I was, until I met Hotshot over here. Liam took one whiff of me and swears he fell for me. I’m sure it was actually my winning personality. *wink* Anywho, my best friend Caroline is marrying Liam’s cousins the pack Alpha’s, and somehow she managed to get the two of us kidnapped in her book, Fire of the Wolf. Once we got out of that pickle, I managed to get into a pickle of my own in my book, Reflections of the Wolf.
Okay okay, our book.
I seem to recall playing Knight in Shining Armor twice for you.
Aww, is someone feeling left out? Okay, so you tell them what I look like then.
She’s absolutely gorgeous, and she’s mine.
*laughing* Possessive much?
Well I don’t want the male readers knowing what you look like. They might imagine you and think things that I would have to rip their throats out for.
You’re cute when you’re jealous, but you need to calm down. We have a post to write.
We can write it later, why don’t you come over here and help me calm down.
*Rustling of paper, kissing sounds, and then the door creaks closed*
Sorry about that readers, when I told Liam he could write this post I never imagined Tina would join him. I can’t leave them alone without them going at it like rabbits. Tina and Liam are great people who have faced traumatic personal tragedies in their pasts. I have to admit, telling their story was a roller coaster ride of emotions, but it was a fantastic one.
Here’s a quick excerpt from Reflections of the Wolf, The Gray Pack 2.
“She’s okay, Liam. She’s just exhausted and overwhelmed. Give her some breathing room.” Tina could hear another man’s voice talking to Liam, but she couldn’t seem to make her eyes open to see who it was.
“Why did she pass out then?” Liam’s voice was annoyed, and she thought she heard him growl a bit. Damn that was sexy.
“Who knows why women faint? What were you guys talking about?” A third masculine voice spoke.
“Shit.” Liam muttered. “I told her she was my mate. I didn’t mean to scare her.”
Tina could just imagine the look on Liam’s face right now. She understood that Caroline believed in this whole mating thing, and that was fine for her life, but Tina wasn’t interested in a serious relationship. She had lived through her share of heartache when it came to men, and the pain just wasn’t worth it anymore.
She took a deep breath and forced her eyes open a crack. Instantly Liam and two other men were leaning over her. What the hell did they feed these men? They were enormous and gorgeous!
“Oh my God, I’ve died and gone to single women’s heaven,” she said, moaning and then blushing when the two new men laughed, and Liam frowned. “Who are you guys?”
“Hey, Sweet Tina, nice and easy now. How are you feeling?” Liam’s eyes held compassion, concern, and a glimmer of apprehension. A gentle tug of desire shot through her body at his soft endearment. He helped her sit up, scooting to sit behind her to brace her back against his chest. She was now between his outstretched thighs with her head tucked just under his chin and his arms around her protectively.
“Like a werewolf beat the shit out of me,” she grumbled, and all three men laughed. She felt Liam relax against her a little bit. He rested his hands on her flat tummy, and his thumbs rubbed tiny circle patterns through the T-shirt she wore. She could feel sparks shoot across her skin, and she grimaced in her mind. Her body sure wanted a relationship with him.
“Good. I was afraid you were just going to say fine or something silly like that.” His amusement rippled through her, making her smile.
“Hi, Tina. I’m Rafe Whetstone. This is my brother Ryley.” He indicated the beautiful godlike creature standing next to him. “We were quite impressed with your show of bravery in there, but you better take it easy for a bit. If your back gets worse, Liam will get you to the doctor. You hit that wall really hard when he threw you. And now with you passing out on us like that, it makes me wonder about your head. Is it hurting?” Rafe looked like a Viking warrior with golden-blond hair that was a little shaggy and electric-blue eyes that seemed to assess her in one lazy sweep. She shivered at the look of interest heating his gaze and instinctively pressed backward into Liam. His arms tightened around her possessively.
“Yes, but I took a baseball bat to the back of it a few hours ago, so it’s to be expected. I think my head hurts more now because it’s trying to process all of this…umm…this werewolf love story my best friend is apparently living.” She rubbed her temples trying to ease the ache. Liam’s strong hand moved to the base of her neck and started massaging the tension away. She groaned softly, and Ryley laughed loudly.
“Yeah, well, if Liam has his way, you will be living your own shortly. We have to go talk with Dev and Damon. Take care of your girl, Liam. I wouldn’t want to have to sweep her away from you and make her fall in love with me.” Ryley winked at Tina, and Liam growled a threat.
“Oh, pumpkin, that’s sweet, but I’m just not sure there is a man alive that’s qualified for that job,” she said, smiling sweetly at Ryley as he and the others laughed.
“Oh brother, you’re going to have your hands full with this little spitfire. Good luck!” Ryley teased Liam, and Tina’s eyes narrowed at him.
“He won’t have to worry about me shortly,” she grumbled, but the pressure increased from Liam’s hands, and a low moan escaped her throat. All three men ignored her implied threat, and it grated her nerves.
Ryley really was very sexy. He matched his brother in golden looks, but he kept his hair much longer. It brushed the tops of his shoulders, and his eyes were just a touch lighter than Rafe’s with flecks of green in them. It seemed all of the firemen of Battalion One were flirts with bodies built on Olympus. She would have to see about spending more time with Caroline if this was the company she was keeping.
She watched the two Viking warriors walked away and had to swallow hard at the sight of their tight butts. Wow, maybe I hit my head harder than I thought. She chided herself for drooling over those two men when the one that really scared her was holding her in his arms. Worrying now about what Ryley had said, she fidgeted in Liam’s grip. Liam couldn’t really believe that she was his mate, could he? Goose bumps prickled over her skin when Liam’s kissed the nape of her neck where he had been gently massaging.
“Are they family, too?” she asked Liam curiously.
Liam tensed before replying. “Yes, they are my adopted brothers. You can trust them. Well, you can trust them with your life, but Ryley won’t ever stop trying to get into your pants.”
She laughed out loud and felt a surge of feminine confidence. “I’m sure I will enjoy his attempts.”
Liam growled behind her, and she stilled in his arms. That was definitely a possessive growl if she had ever heard one. Turning to look back over her shoulder with narrowed eyes, she took in his jealous frown and huffed with irritation. After a few moments of glaring at each other in silence, he sighed and relaxed, and she couldn’t help but smile at her victory. She wouldn’t tolerate being told who to spend time with, no matter who it was.
