Sale! Lower book price

Hi everyone, I'm lowering the price on both Amazon and iBooks for The Mating Seduction. This is the third book in my Werewolves of Montana series. 

Lexie Walters knows she’s in big trouble. Caught trying to steal her champion horse from the sexy werewolf cowboy who purchased the mare, she’s offered a devil’s bargain. Jackson Palmer will let her ride Diamond in an upcoming barrel race if Lexie spends seven nights in his bed. Desperate to win the rodeo prize money that can save her pack’s ranch, Lexie agrees. But there’s no way she’ll become his mate, no matter how much Jackson ’s touch arouses her.

Ever since Lexie left for college Jackson Palmer has waited to capture the curvy Lupine werewolf’s heart. Now she’s back in his life and he’s determined to claim her. Only Lexie can tame his wild wolf side. If Jackson doesn’t find a mate in two weeks, he’ll get kicked out of the Mitchell pack.

Lexie will do everything to resist Jackson ’s seductive charms. But she doesn’t realize there’s a far more serious threat than losing her virginity to this powerful and determined Lupine. Someone wants to prevent her from racing, only this someone will not stop until she’s off the rodeo circuit for good…

Obsession is now available!

Raphael is an obsessed alpha werewolf with one thing on his mind - to claim Jessica, the one who threatens his pack's safety. 

Excerpt from Obsession
copyright 2015 by Bonnie Vanak

All of these males wanted one thing only. Her. And it wouldn’t turn out nicely. Most of the time, males treated a female with utter deference and gentleness, but in a bar filled with lusty Lupines …
Jessica hugged her purse to her chest. “Maybe next century, cowboy.”

“Maybe now,” he said loudly. “Maybe right now, against the wall, hard and fast.” He ran his gaze over her, appraising and appreciative.
A cold shiver snaked down her spine. Low growls rippled through the room. They eyed her as if she were steak, and were very hungry. Jessica lifted her chin. “Back off,” she told him.
But he did not move, only kept staring at her. And then she caught Raphael’s spicy, fragrant scent. He came from the direction of the kitchen, his manner aggressive.
“Jessica,” he said in a deep voice. “Stay there.”
Raphael vaulted over the bar and got close to the aggressive male. “She’s mine.” He growled deep and pinned a hard stare on the other male.
Finally the guy dropped his gaze submissively.
“Go back to your seat.”
The cowboy did.
The power of a natural alpha. Raphael flexed his fingers and his claws unsheathed. “If anyone takes a step closer to her,” he thundered, “you deal with me. There’s some females arriving shortly from another pack. They’re all looking for a good time. I suggest you wait…”
He ran a clawed hand across the closest table, gouging the wood. “Unless you’d like me to carve my name on your a**.”
Murmurs threaded through the room, but everyone dropped their gazes, suddenly interested in their drinks.
Jessica’s heart beat faster as Raphael slid into the stool beside her. “Thanks,” she whispered.

Available NOW!

Happy BDSM Day

Happy Valentine's Day! Fifty Shades of Grey releases today and I'm not going to see it.  I'm staying home with the dogs and working on Redemption, a new Werewolves of Montana Mating Mini, while DH works on the trains at the local park. Yeah, our lives are soooo fifty shades of exciting, LOL. 

And tonight to celebrate VD day (that sounds terrible, VD day. Veneral Disease day?) we are grilling steaks instead of paying too much for eating dinner out. A bottle of white wine is chilling in the fridge and we are going to have a fire in the fire pit. And relax, toast each other and our marriage (20 years this year!). No whips, bondage or floggers for us. But he DID purchase a VD gift for tonight... drum roll...

A toasting fork. For marshmallows! It's pictured above. Yeah, I love that man of mine. He knows what I need. LOL! Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Obsession, now available for pre-order!

OBSESSION, Werewolves of Montana Mating Mini #2

He comes to her in a dark dream promising sensual pleasure - sexy, tempting and dangerous. Raphael is an obsessed wolf with one thing on his mind. He wants Jessica naked beneath him, and nothing will stop him until he has her in his bed.

Jessica Tyrell is a Lupine with a mission – find her missing brother, her only living blood relative. Now, with the help of magick crystals, her dream can come true. All she needs is to hack into restricted records at her friend Alexa’s ranch. The only thing standing in her way is Raphael Amador, head of pack security. The wolf wants her with the same ruthless intent he displays in protecting the pack. Jessica knows if she surrenders to his sensual allure, she could lose her soul to Raphael.

Haunted by his tortured past and determined to never love again, Raphael finds his passion awakened by the lovely redhead who threatens his control. He has vowed to seek revenge against the man who killed his intended mate and scattered his pack. Can he experience a night of pleasure with the lovely redhead and pursue his goal of revenge, or will Jessica capture his broken heart?

Excerpt from Obsession copyright 2015 by Bonnie Vanak

He parked a lean hip against the tree’s trunk and folded his muscular arms. In his red flannel shirt, with the sleeves rolled up to display tanned forearms, and faded jeans with scuffed Western boots, he looked like an ordinary cowboy. But there was nothing ordinary about this Lupine.
            Curls the color of blackest night spilled down to his collar. His strong jaw was covered by a close-trimmed beard, and a crisp mustache framed a mouth far too sensual for a man. But there was nothing sensual about the sharp, angular features of his face nor the darkness of those brown eyes.
   Those eyes seemed ageless, and ancient pain lurked in their depths as he gazed down at her.
            Jessica studied the acres of green pasture, the gleaming buildings, and thought about the expensive motor cars parked in the garage. “It must be nice to be wealthy,” she mused.
            “There are worse things than having no money,” he said quietly.
            “Easy to say when you have plenty of it.”
            “I’d trade all the money in the world to regain what I’ve lost.”
            He looked dark and dangerous and yet he had an air of vulnerability.
            “What did you lose?”
            Raphael shook his head. “Another time, little one. Perhaps one night I will share that information.”
            “You don’t believe in sharing during the day?”
            His gaze became hooded. “With you, I would much rather share…things… at night.”
            Jessica felt her entire body flare with heat. Every time he gazed at her with those bedroom eyes, she felt a jolt of sensual awareness.
Her Lupine nature, with all its raging hormones and sexual need, howled for release.
But his seductive gaze wasn’t centered on her face now. He stared at her curls.
“What’s wrong? Never seen a redhead before?”
“Not of that color. I have met some red wolf Lupines, but their coloring is darker.” Raphael left the tree, approached her. Before she could squeak a protest, he wrapped a strand of her hair around his index finger.
   “It is like living flame that does not burn. But do you burn, Jessica? Burn with the desire all our kind possesses?”

Back from Haiti

I'm home from visiting Haiti for the day job. Grueling trip. This photo sums up the trip. This is a public street in Cap Haitien, but vendors set up their wares on the street, spilling over past the sidewalk. It's so narrow and claustrophobic, and yet our truck navigated down this street. No choice. We drove down this street... and made it...with much patience, yelling in Creole and having the vendors move their wares.

It was nerve wracking and exhausting, being in that kind of restrictive, tight space.

Haiti is a challenge for me. The country is very poor, but colorful. Loud, crowded and bustling. And there is the poverty that is my day job. Seeing that level of suffering, well, I've done this for 21 years, but each time, it gets to me until it's time to leave and then I am quite glad to return home.

They expanded the airport in Cap and it is wonderful to fly directly in and out, instead of having to fly into Port au Prince and take a small plane north. American Airlines upgraded the airport, and it's shiny and new. You land and then they have buses to shuttle you to the terminal, a short walk, but they insist on the buses.

Leaving was a real challenge. The system was down so they handwrote our boarding passes. And then the real fun started. As I put down my backpack to run it through Xray, my passport was handed over to a security guard.

I had to dump everything out of my backpack for investigation. Okay, I understand. Random check. No problem.

Then the female security agent patted me down. Thoroughly. I mean, she checked my butt twice. Twice.  When she finished, I felt violated. But what do you do? You laugh and move on and make jokes with your coworker about tipping the TSA agent a dollar. They punched my boarding pass with a little star and I waved it at my coworker and said, "Look! My butt gets a star!"

I'm glad to be home. Very glad. It's going to take another day or two to recover because I'm so exhausted. I'm getting back to work on final edits for Obsession, and losing myself in my books, and places where poverty and suffering do not exist.

In case you didn't know...

I have a series of 7 Egyptian historical romance novels I wrote. And one, The Lady and the Libertine, is only 99 cents on Kindle! It's also available on Kindle Unlimited, which means if you have Kindle Unlimited, you can read it for free!

Booklist said this about The Lady and the Libertine:

"Stealing the ruby proved to be much easier than Nigel Wallenford thought it would be. Masquerading as his twin brother, Thomas, Nigel traced the ruby, which was the key to a king’s ransom in ancient Egyptian gold, to the Khamsin camp, where Karida bint Ali Sharif had been charged with guarding the jewel. Once Karida discovers the ruby is gone, she sets out for England disguised as Anne Mitchell to find the duplicitous Englishman who not only stole her honor but also her love. Danger, desire, and a generous amount of deception combine with dazzlingly sexy results in the seventh action-packed addition to Vanak’s refreshingly different, late-Victorian-set Khamsin Warriors of the Wind series." --John Charles
