Naming His Mate, an #LGBTRomance Novelette

Mmmm! Those who know me well know I can’t resist a good M/M storyline (especially with the added heat factor of shifters)… So, of course, I joined in the opportunity to pimp a book. There’s also a contest to participate in, so read all the way through to qualify as a win!

Small-town sheriff, Mike Hadley, would love to experience a headache-free day for once in his life. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen anytime soon. While investigating a rash of disappearances and dealing with his ornery lover, he’s thrown into a whole new world he never imagined existed.

Damien Marks has finally found a place to call home in Los Lobos, South Dakota, with the Black Hills Pack. He also stumbles across something he never thought he would—his mate. Falling hard, he decides he needs to come clean and tell the truth. But will his sexy lover accept what he is?

Embroiled in a potentially dangerous situation, both men have to decide where their loyalties lie—with duty or love?


Mike Hadley adjusted his gun holstered on the belt at his waist and tugged his jacket over the weapon, concealing it from clear view. There wasn’t any doubt he’d incite a riot if he walked inside with his piece visible.

Coming here, to this place in the middle of nowhere, shouldn’t have troubled him. He’d stepped into shittier, more unstable situations than this hole-in-the-wall bar, but damn if a thread of apprehension didn’t prickle the length of his spine as he stood outside of the entrance. One small detail kept him from strolling into the establishment like he owned the place, and he sincerely hoped that minor detail stayed home tonight.

He rolled his neck from side to side in a bid to loosen the tension in his shoulders. With an air of confidence he didn’t quite feel, he pulled open the heavy steel door and strode inside the Den.

Thirty seconds was all it took for activity to grind to a screeching halt. The drawl of a country ballad playing on the music box in the far corner thumped through the stifling air. Weighted stare after weighted stare met his gaze head on as he scanned the bar’s occupants. Their open hostility battered at his senses.

He wasn’t welcome. That much was apparent, but he would deal with it. Despite a bar full of unfriendly locals, the absence of one in particular shaved off a degree of his unease.

Of course, his anxiety hardly mattered. As sheriff of the small town of Collins, South Dakota, it was his job to investigate a rash of disappearances over the last several weeks. Unfortunately, the trail had led him to the neighboring, inhospitable town and people of Los Lobos.

    I SO enjoy your open-minded unconventional neglect of American social norms, especially being in the South! This post makes that point, and yet it really shouldn’t be a big deal at all. Make sense? 🙂

    I realize I’m about to go off on a tangent — apologies — but I always feel this is important for me to share for the sake of equal rights, same-sex marriage, etc, etc. Please bear with me as I rattle on. 😉 Regarding M/M intimacy…

    To be honest and certainly being very imperfect, as a heterosexual male raised in Texas, many years ago I struggled with public affection between two boys/men; I kept it to myself however. My parents didn’t raise me to hate. Nevertheless, when I saw two men sharing their love, lust, or affection for each other it would make me twinge inside — being honest. BUT here’s the good news, the good finale, if you will…

    After my own personal experience with a very close dear family friend (house mother of 3 different Halfway Houses & Battered Womens Shelters in Kerrville) whose immeasurable support for my Mom and us dealing with my sister’s 35 years of addiction & relapses, passed away of cancer… deeply effecting my Mom and sister, Mom shared with me that she was an intersexed baby/adult, who had always felt her parents and the delivering OBGYN made the wrong sex-choice for her. Then I spent about 2-years researching intersexed births, which lead to further research into embryology and hormonal developement throughout the prenatal weeks, and Kitt… I was utterly blown away by what I learned! And then worse, I was completely ASHAMED of how I reacted in the past with M/M love and affection! I felt like shit to be honest. 😦

    Today, I have several dear male friends, very dear, that are gay. We have the most fun together often much more fun than I typically do with hetero men. HAH! And that old, shameful twinging of the past about M/M displays… it is 99% gone and I’m TRYING to rid myself of the remaining 1% — I want it ALL GONE! ❤ My living mantra today? …

    Love is love. It knows no ethnicity, no national borders, no amount of money, no time, no genders, no animal genders either. It is the reason to exist.

    Please continue to post topics like this Kitt! Ignorance is one of mankind’s most horrendous qualities! Much love to you woman; you ROCK! 😉

      Sorry it’s taken me so long to respond. Things have been more than a little hectic.

      I’m so glad that friends and circumstances have opened your mind and allowed you to be more tolerant of things that have brought you discomfort in the past.

      Love at it’s purest, regardless of what form it takes, will always be beautiful to me.
