Today I want to talk about one of
the minor characters in my book Mated Forever.
Norah is the mother of Jorie. She is
a widow, whose husband was an abusive drunk. For Norah, her life with him was
as a consequence of her choices when she was younger. She has had to live with
the choices she made and the life that was thrust upon her. Only now, her daughter
Jorie faces difficult choices of her own that will have consequences. What does
this mother do? Does she advise her to tread along the safe, conservative road
or does she tell her to go for the more riskier route?
I will say nothing more but I'll leave
you with the blurb and a quick taste!
Forever by Michaela Rhua
The full moon is always
a time for danger and mating. This month it brings the scent of Louisa's mate.
Jorie is on the run and in grave danger. Being rescued by Louisa brings safety and
a new temptation. As the girls act on their feelings, and passion overtakes
them, they are unaware of the danger surrounding them both. When Jorie is
kidnapped, it's a race against time. Will Louisa be able to save her mate, or
will the past and all its secrets destroy them before they even have a chance
"I am so sorry to draw you into all this Lou, I …
I didn't mean for it to get this far." Jorie put down the hot mug on the
table next to the sofa.
"It's okay. I asked you to stay, you didn't force
this on me, so chill," Lou said. "Anyway, I'm going to take a
Lou got up from the sofa and disappeared into the
Damn it! Jorie kicked
herself mentally. Why did I not just do
what I wanted to, just touch her. She knew exactly how she felt about Lou.
She wanted her as a lover and mate. Things were so complicated now. Sleeping
with Malachi had been a colossal error. Every time she looked into Lou’s
beautiful brown eyes something melted inside.
The noise of the shower interrupted her thoughts.
Jorie fisted her hands and gritted her teeth. Then, with decisive steps, she
walked through the bedroom to the bathroom. The door was ajar, almost inviting
her in. Once inside, the hot steam fogged her vision. Her eyes adjusted
quickly, and she made out water cascading over golden brown skin. Rivulets
journeyed their way down the perfect body, which was all curves. Jorie wanted
to stroke Lou’s round ass, and kiss it all over. She stretched out her hands.
Her skin tightened, and heat radiated throughout her body. She knew exactly
what was happening. Her wolf begged to be let out to play with her mate.
Breathing deeply, Jorie stepped forward. The steam
cleared at little more and Lou turned around. Jorie stared at Lou's round
breasts topped off with dark chocolate nipples, and licked her lips. Lou
glanced up. Her eyes deepened then a ring of copper formed around her pupils.
Lou continued to soap her body. Jorie watched Lou's hand circle down to her
bare pussy with the sponge. Her own pussy ached with need. Lou dropped the
sponge and leaned her body into the water, washing the suds off her skin. Jorie
wanted to touch her so badly.
Lou turned off the water, and stepped out of the
shower. Jorie took a deep breath, trying to get her wolf under control. She
wanted Lou in human form, to delight in her body. In her wolf form it would be
fucking. Her animal instincts would take over like it had with Malachi. There
had been little tenderness. When he’d realized she was willing, it became all
about taking her quickly. The act had been painful and cold. Where she’d wanted
to take it slow, this would be about making love. She wanted to experience
love, an all-consuming love. Tender and soft, not hard and fast.
"You're so beautiful, Lou. I want you so much. I've
never felt this way before," Jorie whispered.
"I want you, too, Jorie. Only if you’re
sure?" Lou gave her a tentative smile.
"Yes, so sure, like never before," Jorie
Jorie unbuttoned her shirt. Lou came closer still,
helping Jorie to release her arms. Warm hands massaged her breasts. Jorie
untwisted Lou's hair and let those dark curls loose. They were silky smooth,
and Jorie massaged Lou's head then cupped her face.
Their lips met. Heat surged through Jorie, the air hot
and heavy. Lou pushed her toward the bedroom. Jorie delved deeply into Lou's
mouth with her tongue, tasting and licking. Her beast growled with delight.
This was good, this was right.
"You taste so good, Lou," she said.
Lou pushed her onto the bed then stood over her. A
flicker of hesitation registered in her eyes. Jorie undid her jeans, ridding
herself of any clothing to reassure Lou this was what she wanted. Words were
irrelevant. Lou seemed like watching her strip because intensity deepened her
gaze. Once bare, Jorie sat up and held out her hand. Nothing happened. Lou
looked at the offered hand. Afraid Lou would back away, Jorie slowly opened her
legs. She wasn’t fully bare as Lou, but she hoped Lou would understand.
"I can't wait, Jorie, I have to taste you."
Lou licked her lips.
She watched Lou lower her head and inhale the scent of
her arousal. Lou growled then pounced on her.
Michaela Rhua always dreamed of writing but
this never happened until she met the lovely group of ladies known as UCW.
Their passion for writing and encouragement inspired her to see if she could do
it too. Now she loves writing!
She has teenage children and a husband, who
also keep her busy. However, it is whilst travelling into work that she has
time to create her characters and imagine other places in which they exist as
her world skims by the window. Conversations overheard often lead to the birth
of new ideas that she scribbles down in her trusty notebook.
