The Advantages and Disadvantages of Sharp Teeth
As a writer, I think about odd subjects on a regular basis. It’s part of the job description. Since I enjoy both reading and writing paranormal romances I find myself considering things like teeth and fangs, what happens to nail polish when a shapeshifter transforms to their animal form and how the actual shift works.
Werewolves, vampires, feline shifters—they all come equipped with sharp teeth. Here are my thoughts about sharp teeth:
1. Sharper is much better for eating meat.
2. They make good weapons.
3. Fang teeth are great for biting necks and obtaining life sustaining blood.
4. They can pop out at inconvenient times.
5. They have the potential to scare unsuspecting humans.
6. They can get in the way while kissing.
7. Require more toothpaste and dental floss than a human.
8. It’s hard to keep them from being seen by humans.
9. Once seen, humans will ask nosy questions.
What do you think about specialized teeth? Would you like them or would you rather stick with the teeth you have? Answer this question, complete the rafflecopter and go into a draw to win an Amazon gift certificate.
Here’s the blurb:
When you fall out of step, that’s when everything falls into place.
R.J. Blake begins a new session tutoring young werewolves in the old ways—before the introduction of the shift-suppressing drugs that allow their kind to live secretly among humans. He expects nothing out of the ordinary. Until sexy, smart, aggravating-as-hell Corey Wilson arrives. Older than the others, son of a powerful Los Angeles pack leader, Corey is an instant temptation he cannot afford.
The last thing Corey wants is three months stuck in the Yellowstone wilderness, followed by the stifling life his father has all mapped out for him. One glimpse of R.J., though, sparks a determination to seduce the older man before he leaves. Yet as R.J. guides him through the sometimes terrifying process of rediscovering his heritage, a deepening respect calls to his artistic soul and fuels a burst of creativity.
When their time comes to an end, Corey senses hesitation behind R.J.’s insistence that theirs was simply a summer fling. Inspiring him to take a leap of faith with consequences neither of them saw coming. A dangerous plot that reaches from the heart of their love to the highest office in the land…
This book contains a young werewolf intent on seduction, an older werewolf determined to resist said seduction, werewolf politics and brutality, a little spilled blood, and hot, naked manlove in the great outdoors.
