Author Guest Post: Mind Mates (Pull of the Moon #2) by Mary Hughes

Mind Mates by Mary Hughes
Release: August 23rd, 2016
Romance Subgenre: Paranormal Romance
Series: Pull of the Moon #2

Pretty little shifter, wizard prince—their taboo love could burn the barriers between worlds.

Shifter Emma Singer has more problems than she can shake her pretty little wolf tail at. Her heirloom journal is missing, her pack alpha wants her for his harem, and her family plans to sell her to him. Even her wicked little crush on her hot boss is doomed—why would six-and-a-half feet of handsome royal wizard want a boring, good-girl iota shifter like her? Not to mention her only power is going berserker—that's a real relation-shipwreck!

Gabriel Light is a wizard prince who turned his back on his exceptional powers after he was accused of causing his parents' death. Now he pours his intellect into his tech business, and hides his naughty, forbidden lust for his pretty shifter clerk. But when his sister is imprisoned, and Emma is kidnapped, it's time for this alpha geek-wizard to decloak with all laser cannons blazing. Only one problem—how can he be sure Emma won’t get caught in the crossfire?

Then Gabriel and Emma stumble on hidden magic, a key to power beyond imagining—if they can stay alive long enough to use it. But if Emma unleashes her berserker wolf on their enemies, can Gabriel draw her back from the brink before she destroys everyone in her path?

Warning: Contains a hot wizard prince panting to bring out a good-girl shifter's naughty side. Accidental voyeurism, deliberate orgasms, a jealous rival wizard, and fun with prophecy.

Author Guest Post

I'm excited to have author Mary Hughes on the blog today to discuss her novel, Mind Mates. Thanks for sharing, Mary!

Thanks to Romance Playlist for this chance to share music! Tunage plays a big part in my life—hubby and I met in high school music theory class and still make music together in our regional symphony. When I’m pounding the writerly keyboard, I don’t have anything playing externally, but there’s always music going in my head.

The songs below resonate with the characters in Mind Mates (Pull of the Moon book 2). In fact, I had such fun picking them out, I put together a video just for Romance Playlist. (http://www.maryhughesbooks.com\images\socialmedia\MindMatesCharacterForComputer.mp4) I love a variety of music, and here’s a sample of cello, Irish flute, power metal, country, and more. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!
