Wolf, In League
It’s been months since anyone at the Committee has had any contact from the O’Connell family or their pack members, and they are not happy. Suspicious of the activities that took place in D.C. and determined to find out what the wolves are up to, the Committee recruits one of their newest residents, Doctor Matthew Dietrich, to play the part of neighbor and infiltrate the family.
Matthew has always been a keep-to-himself kind of person. Though idealistic and optimistic, he prefers to work in solitude, at night, while he researches the findings that he hopes will one day change the world. When he’s approached by the executives of the Center, he has no idea why they’d choose him. And to say he is skeptical over the concept of men that can shift into wolves would be an understatement. Until he meets his new partner, the man that will play the part of his “husband” in the Committee’s scheme, Doctor Gavin Strauss.
Genre: Gay, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy
Notes: Wolf, in League contains some explicit and violent content
Book 3 in the Wolf series
Hello, and welcome to the tour! It’s an honour to be here on MM Good Book Reviews, and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to share the details of, and to celebrate with you over, the newest release in my Wolf series, Wolf, in League. For those that are joining the tour for the first time, welcome! And for those who have been here before, it’s amazing to see you again.
As I’ve done with the rest of the tours for these Wolf releases, this blog tour and giveaway is all about teasers – tiny teasers – or, just enough to get a taste and hopefully inspire a desire for the rest of the novel. But before we get there, however, I want to let you know about the giveaway that comes along with the tour. Follow through to the end of the post to learn how you could win your very own signed, print copy of Wolf in League, a “crystal and silver” diamante Howling Wolf Pendant, and a $20 gift certificate to the Less Than Three Press book market.
And now, the teaser, and a question: how would you feel if everything you knew about the truth of mankind was suddenly shown to be a lie…
Tiny Teaser: Post 5
“You have made it very clear that you want to be here, Doctor. That this is the place where you can fulfill the dreams and ideas that got you into genetics in the first place. And I agree with you—there is absolutely no place on this planet where you will be better served to do that. The things you will learn here will change everything you know. They will enlighten you on humankind in ways that you never even dreamed existed. These anomalies are the secret to understanding what the human body is capable of. You have no idea how far we’ve come, but you can know. You will know. If you choose to, that is. This is a research opportunity that very few of our kind even know about, let alone get the chance to work with. Isn’t that what you want? We’re offering you more knowledge than you ever knew was available. All you have to do is help us.”
Volos had been so smug. So completely confident with what he was saying. So careless. Like he hadn’t been trying to tell Matthew that the world as Matthew knew it was a lie.
Yet even there, with his forehead warming the glass beneath it and his nostrils huffing air into condensation butterflies, after he’d had to run out of the room like a child, he didn’t really believe any of it. For that he’d have to see it. He’d have to know it, sample it, study it, and even then Matthew wasn’t sure he’d draw the conclusion of what they were trying to tell him. Viruses, disorders, mutations: yes. Men who turned into wolves… men with fur—
“Ridiculous,” he hissed. It was definitely a joke. A prank on the new guy before they accepted him into their flock. That’s all it was. Volos and Dyball had been convincing, but of course they were. They were both senior members of the executive staff and had years of experience at making people believe what they wanted them to. They were joshing him and that was okay. He’d play their games. Sure he would. That was the whole point, probably—to see how he’d handle something so extraordinary. To see if he could be trusted, and make sure he really did have an open mind.
And okay, yes, he’d panicked and made a dash for the restroom to put his head back together, but that was all right too. It would make them think he was taking their words at face value and that he was giving them full consideration. So what now? How far would they take it? He could only wait and see, of course. Maybe the moment he walked out of the restroom they’d start laughing. They’d clap him on the back and they could all share in the joke. He could even make a sheepish comment about how excited he’d been starting to get over the idea of it all. If not, he’d play along until they did crack.
Sure. He could do that.
He took a breath. He let it out. He pushed away from the mirror and then used his sleeve to scrub off the marks he’d left. He stepped back, turned toward the door, and yanked it open.

A great big thank you to MM Good Book Reviews for having me as a guest today, and another one to you, for joining in on the fun. Best of luck with the giveaway and I hope you enjoyed the post!
Until next time,

Henley was born with a full-blown passion for run-on sentences, a zealous indulgence in all words descriptive, and the endearing tendency to overuse punctuation. Since the early years Henley has been an enthusiastic writer, from the first few I-love-my-dog stories to the current leap into erotica.
A self-professed Google genius, Henley lives for the hours spent digging through the Internet for ‘research purposes’ which, more often than not, lead seven thousand miles away from first intentions but bring Henley to new discoveries and ideas that, once seeded, tend to flourish.
Henley has been proudly publishing with Less Than Three Press since 2012.
