Get Ready for Magic, Shifters, and the Coolest Cat Ever! #CataclysmicShift

Hi — 

I’m so excited to tell you that the re-release of Cataclysmic Shift is only 3 days away. This is a book in my paranormal series called The Aloysius Tales, and the first time it released, some mix ups in categorization meant a lot of people missed the book. If you’ve read either of the other Aloysius Tales — Spell Cat or Brush with Catastrophe — and enjoyed them then you’re not going to want to miss Cataclysmic Shift. But you don’t have to have read those books to enjoy this one.

This story includes not only witches like the other books, but also a shifter, and the coolest cat ever, Aloysius.

Here is the blurb —

Aloysius, the magical black cat and powerful witch’s familiar, isn’t afraid to go into battle to protect his master, but the outcome of the fight turns his feline world upside down. A direct hit of magic steals not only his memories and power, but even the body he’s lived in for several centuries. When he wakes up naked on the floor of a veterinarian’s office, it isn’t as the cat Aloysius, but as the sixteenth-century French gentleman Alain Bellarose. And when Alain sees sexy and enigmatic veterinarian Luke Elliott, he decides he’ll make the best of his time as a human.

Luke is a man with secrets who generally prefers the company of animals—though the flamboyant boy who washes his face with the side of his hand and tries to lick his own privates might prove an exception.

Meanwhile, Witch Master Killian Barth and his secret weapon, Sammy, struggle without Aloysius’s power to draw on. Two evil females are circling, and seeing the coven’s weakness, they’re about to move in for the kill. When Alain’s memories return, he’s faced with the ultimate dilemma: protect his community or stay with the man he loves.

Fool of Main Beach –– This book has been a Bestseller since before it released and is still #3 on the Dreamspinner Bestseller List — https://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/books/fool-of-main-beach-by-tara-lain-8782-b

Merle Justice wants to reach for the stars, but it’s tough to get respect when playing a teenybopper vampire on TV. Then he meets a famous director anxious to give him all he thinks he wants—and maybe a bit more. Everything’s looking up until a life-threatening encounter with some homophobes on Main Beach puts Merle face-to-face with a Sasquatch-sized hero in a pink puffer coat.

Tom Henry defies description. As unsophisticated and simple as an angel, he walks through life content with who he is and asking for very little except to care for his sister, Lily, and the dogs he loves. Then he meets Merle, the embodiment of dreams he barely knows he has. Merle knows the people who hold his future in their hands might love Tom—but they’ll never understand Merle and Tom together. Tom knows it too. With lives this far apart, who’s really the fool of Main Beach?

TL_AT#3_cataclysmicshift_coverinExcerpt R: CATACLYSMIC SHIFT by Tara Lain; A Cat Falls in Love with His Vet

Available at Loose Id     Amazon     ARe

Super cat, Aloysius, may be the most powerful witch’s familiar in the world, but when he takes a blast at the hand of an evil witch he loses it all — power, memory, and his feline form — to become the ethereal human beauty, Alain Bellarose. When Alain wakes up naked on the floor surrounded by dogs and cats, his eyes first set upon Luke Elliott, the handsome and mysterious veterinarian.  Suddenly, the prospect of being human doesn’t seem so bad. Luke has a lot to hide and he likes animals way more than people, but he can’t resist the flamboyant boy who washes his face with the side of his hand and tries to lick his own privates!  The loss of Aloysius depletes the power of the Witch Master, Killian Barth, and that of his “secret weapon” Sammy and leaves their coven sitting ducks for two very nasty females. When Alain discovers that he’s really a powerful cat, he’s faced with the ultimate choice. To protect his community, or stay with the man he loves.

Alain sat cross-legged on the bed. These pajama pants Luke bought him were pretty comfortable. What a strange night. Who were those men to him? Killian and Blaine? They seemed very important. The urge to protect Killian had wiped out every thought and feeling he had. Still, they hadn’t recognized him. That was disappointing, but he didn’t know why.

He sighed. And Luke. The man wanted to get rid of him. Couldn’t blame him. Alain had come in and interfered with his privacy. He should leave. But that felt so wrong. And he wanted to be friends with Luke. He could feel the man’s loneliness like a well of darkness. But when he tried to be friends, his big penis kept getting in the way. Like last night. He just wanted to have Luke’s company in that bed, but he kept waking up with his member hard and hurting. It didn’t feel all that relaxed right now.

He looked over at Amelia, who stuck her leg in the air, leaned down, and licked her female parts. Hmm. He listened. Dishes still rattled in the kitchen. Luke had said he’d clean up since Alain had set everything out. He would have liked to help, but it felt like Luke wanted to be alone.

Amelia seemed to be enjoying her bath. He should be able to do it. He stretched out a leg and bent down. His head easily rested on his thigh. If he tucked his head, it might work.

He slipped off his pajama pants and dropped them on the bed beside him. There it was. He had no idea how he came to have such an impressive penis. And he must have a basis for comparison, because he knew it was big. Whose penis had he seen? What did Luke’s penis look like?

He reached down and pulled back his foreskin. That felt very good indeed.

Okay. Could he do it? He leaned until his head passed his thigh and rested on the sheet beneath. So close. With one hand, he grabbed his penis and stretched it toward his mouth. He curled his neck. Damn, it seemed like it would feel so good if he could clean it like Amelia was doing. Why didn’t it work?

He stuck out his tongue.

Yes. The tip of his tongue contacted the foreskin. Oh my goodness. He gave two licks. With his other hand, he pulled back the skin and exposed the gleaming head of his member. Oh yes. His tongue made contact again. Warm, wet, heavenly. He stretched his tongue until the root burned, but he couldn’t get much more of the penis wet. Still, this was wonderful. What would it be like if someone else did it for him?

His rumbles tickled his chest. “Hmmpurrrrr.” He licked all around the head, then tried to push into that tiny hole. “Purrrrrrrrr.”

“Alain?” Luke’s voice came from behind the door that stood ajar.

He froze. Luke seemed to find him unusual. This felt like a perfectly normal activity to him, but Luke might not think so.

“Is anything wrong?” Luke sounded concerned.

Alain grabbed his pajama pants and pulled them across his lap as he sat up. His penis was quite stiff from his ministrations. “No, I’m fine. Come in.”

Luke pushed open the door, glanced at Alain’s lap, and blushed. “I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to intrude. You should have closed your door, and I wouldn’t have bothered you.”

What did he mean, exactly?

Luke grinned. “But hey, we all do it, right?”

Oh. “You do? Because I found it quite difficult.”

“You did?”

Alain pulled his eyebrows together. “Amelia does it with such ease, but I found I couldn’t get as far as she does. How do you do it?”

Luke frowned and sat on the edge of the bed. “Amelia? What are we talking about, Alain?”

“Trying to lick one’s balls and member. Isn’t that what you meant?”

Luke’s mouth opened, then closed again. Then he started to laugh. “Not exactly, but I was correct that there’s hardly a guy on the planet who hasn’t tried it. Never with much success, though. If we could do it, the race would probably vanish, since no man would look for a partner to do it for him.” He laughed some more.

The contest will be on Thursday and Friday. Leave one or two comments to entered one or both drawings. Thank you for coming by!  : )

In case you’ve never read any excerpts from my recent release, here’s a little nibble.

Excerpt : CATACLYSMIC SHIFT by Tara Lain; A Cat Falls in Love with His Vet

Available at Loose Id     Amazon     ARe

Super cat, Aloysius, may be the most powerful witch’s familiar in the world, but when he takes a blast at the hand of an evil witch he loses it all — power, memory, and his feline form — to become the ethereal human beauty, Alain Bellarose. When Alain wakes up naked on the floor surrounded by dogs and cats, his eyes first set upon Luke Elliott, the handsome and mysterious veterinarian.  Suddenly, the prospect of being human doesn’t seem so bad. Luke has a lot to hide and he likes animals way more than people, but he can’t resist the flamboyant boy who washes his face with the side of his hand and tries to lick his own privates!  The loss of Aloysius depletes the power of the Witch Master, Killian Barth, and that of his “secret weapon” Sammy and leaves their coven sitting ducks for two very nasty females. When Alain discovers that he’s really a powerful cat, he’s faced with the ultimate choice. To protect his community, or stay with the man he loves.

Luke lay huddled on the couch. The couch Alain had moved, decorated, and made reviewertoppick2comfortable in the apartment that screamed of his special power and sweetness in every corner. Alain, who couldn’t stay hidden, couldn’t stop protecting, couldn’t keep his pretty nose out of others’ business. The little superhero.

No. The fucking cat.

He pulled a pillow over his face. This was ridiculous. Such things didn’t happen. His crazy mother’s wild-eyed face came into his mind. Maybe that was it. He’d followed his mother over the edge. If they gave him meds, all this would go away.

The witches. The cat.

Alain.

A sob exploded from his lips. What the hell?

Alain had already gone away.

And he felt… How? God-awful.

Witchcraft or abandonment. It all ended up the same. No Alain. No companion. No friend. No…love.

That couldn’t be right. Could it? Love? Had he ever loved anyone in his life?

Anyone?

A drip fell on his hand. Another.

No! He couldn’t love someone who had screwed up the life he’d worked so hard for. He couldn’t love someone who messed around with crazy people. People who claimed to be things that didn’t exist.

He threw the pillow across the room and sat up. Okay, quit this shit. What the hell did he really think about all this?

And there was the truth, laid out across his heart like a fucking tattoo.

A-L-A-I-N.

He wiped a hand over his eyes. He would believe in witches. Hell, he would believe in Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster if he could have Alain back.

This could not be happening. He threw his hands over his head. This could not be happening!

A sound.

He looked over his shoulder. What the fuck? He stared at the window.

Slowly the sash rose. Inch by inch. No hand on it.

The silky feline jumped up onto the sill. “Merwaorwr.”

God, he was so beautiful. Funny that Luke hadn’t known Alain was a cat from the first moment. The boy moved like this feline, all sinuous grace. They shared the big balls. And the eyes. They looked straight into your soul. Aloysius was clearly more than a cat, just as Alain had been more than a man.

The cat jumped down from the window and moved gracefully to the couch. He leaped up beside Luke, sat, and crossed his paws.

Luke shook his head. “I don’t get how this all works, Aloysius. They say you’re a familiar. You don’t have power of your own, but you can open doors and windows.”

The cat sighed. The silky sides clearly expanded and contracted.

“I know. I have to be nuts to be talking to a cat. Of course, I’ve always believed cats were smarter than people, so I guess it’s not such a leap. But believing you’re the man I held in my arms, the man I kissed and made love to…” His voice broke. “That’s a one-way ticket to insanity.”

“Mewoow.”

Luke wiped a hand across his eyes. “Why me? Why did you have to come to my clinic? Couldn’t you have found somebody else to rope into your fucking life?”

“Merwaowr. Waor.”

The cat looked at him with those blue eyes, and he cried. No, tears didn’t fall, but as certainly as Luke continued to breathe, the cat was crying.

A crack lined its way through Luke’s heart.

Aloysius wiped a paw over his face, just as Luke had, then took a deep breath. He backed off the couch and crossed to the window with his head hanging. He jumped up. “Merwaorwr.” He’d given up.

Leap. Gone.

Free Read, Amazon Rants, and Cool Reviews!

LoveYouSoHard_432Hi–

You’ve probably seen the posts about my new Free Read MM contemporary novella, Love You So Hard. Until today, that book was only available through the MM Romance Goodreads Group. I know lots of you joined the group to be able to participate in the Love Has No Boundaries event. But if you haven’t read the book yet, here’s good news. You can now download Love You So Hard from All romance eBooks. It’s free so go on over and get it. If you’ll leave me a review or rating on ARe and/or Goodreads I’ll be most appreciative.

You may have heard me ranting on FB about the unfortunate fate of my new release, Cataclysmic Shift. After two days on Amazon, the categorization of the  book suddenly changed from gay paranormal romance to erotica and not even gay erotica. My publisher finally, after much back and forth, determined that the change was due to the cover which Amazon has declared erotica! I’ve posted the cover so you can draw your own conclusions! It’s very sad for the book because the category TL_AT#3_cataclysmicshift_coverindetermines who will see it. Sigh. Anyway, while Amazon is doing its thing, some reviewers have been raving about Cataclysmic Shift including the fantastic Lena Grey at Rainbow Book Reviews:

“Alain is so different from what I expected considering that he’s Al in human form. I didn’t expect him to be so sweet and innocent, since Al is a real sophistiCATed feline and definitely knows his way around town. Tara has created some wonderful characters in the past, but I think Alain is one of the most endearing. His gentleness and compassion are above reproach and he is wise, considerate, and contentious. His naiveté is so refreshing as is his pure joy and openness with all things, especially sexual, before mentioning that he’s drop-dead gorgeous and doesn’t even seem to notice it. I loved his compassion for the animals and their love for him. Working at a vet’s and being a liaison between them and the humans is an ideal job for him. If he’d been a selfish person, the choice of a life free of the responsibilities he’d had in the past would have been clear cut. He would have chosen to have a life of his own; but that’s not who Alain is. When he becomes aware of his position as protector, familiar to Killian and the the others, he is immediately thrown into a quandary which seems unsolvable without someone having to lose. Alain agonizes over this choice, not wanting to hurt anyone or see them hurt. I’m not sure whether it makes it easier or harder that everyone involved is so understanding about it…

I’d recommend this book, especially to fans of Al and the other witchy gang, and to new readers as well who enjoy a fast-paced, supernatural, exciting, thoughtful love story with a happy ending. Thank you, Tara, for giving us a charming tale of love and loyalty.”

If anyone can take a little of the sting out of Amazon’s category trials, it’s Lena’s lovely words. Thanks for coming by and don’t forget to get your copy of Love You So Hard. ; )

 

First Batch of CATACLYSMIC SHIFT Prize WINNERS!

TL_SpellCatHi —

Thank you all so much for participating in the CATACLYSMIC SHIFT Release Party! We have prize winners from the Rafflecopter. It will take me a couple days to post the winner of the Special Assignment Prize!

Winners!

Jean Reads  won the $10 GC

Judi won the signed copy of Spell Cat

Renee won her choice of ebook — Spell Cat or Brush with Catastrophe

Karin won the Volley Balls T-shirt

I’ll have the final winner coming soon! Thank you again. It’s been great fun.

Here is what Pixie at MM Good Book Reviews has to say about CATACLYSMICTL_AT#3_cataclysmicshift_coverin SHIFT:

“I loved this story as the threads were drawn together, weaving a tale that pulls us in different directions as we want Alain and Luke to get their happily ever after, but we also want Killian and the coven to win against the attacks. Luke is unaware of magic so his part in the story is of a very human aspect that Alain also gets dragged into, their relationship is pretty incredible and Aloysius as human is both sweet and funny and they make a delightful couple. We then have the magical aspect with Killian and Sammy being affected by the loss of Aloysius and being attacked by witch’s wanting power for themselves. This was beautifully done and you get pulled in from the very first page, we see their plight as Aloysius/Alain is torn in different directions and Luke’s heartbreak and devastation upon learning the truth. There are some very amusing scenes as Alain still has some very cat like traits.

I recommend this to those that love magical dilemma’s, falling in love, danger from both human and magical attacks, a great story and a brilliant surprising ending.”

Thanks so much for coming by!

Excerpt R: CATACLYSMIC SHIFT by Tara Lain; A Cat Falls in Love with His Vet

Available at Loose Id     Amazon     ARe

Super cat, Aloysius, may be the most powerful witch’s familiar in the world, but when he takes a blast at the hand of an evil witch he loses it all — power, memory, and his feline form — to become the ethereal human beauty, Alain Bellarose. When Alain wakes up naked on the floor surrounded by dogs and cats, his eyes first set upon Luke Elliott, the handsome and mysterious veterinarian.  Suddenly, the prospect of being human doesn’t seem so bad. Luke has a lot to hide and he likes animals way more than people, but he can’t resist the flamboyant boy who washes his face with the side of his hand and tries to lick his own privates!  The loss of Aloysius depletes the power of the Witch Master, Killian Barth, and that of his “secret weapon” Sammy and leaves their coven sitting ducks for two very nasty females. When Alain discovers that he’s really a powerful cat, he’s faced with the ultimate choice. To protect his community, or stay with the man he loves.

He walked around and got into the driver’s side, started up, and drove out onto the busy New York street.

“Luke?”

“Hmm?”

“How long does it take to get home?”

“Usually about ten minutes, but the traffic’s a bitch.”

“Yes. I’m feeling very, what is your word, horny?”

Luke grinned. “Oh, really?”

“Yes. See?”

Luke glanced over to the passenger seat. Alain’s big cock stood up through his open fly like a light pole. Yeah, like the light poles shining down on their car on this jammed street. “Shit, kitten. We’re not exactly alone.”

“Hmm. But I think no one can see.” He ran his hands up and down his cock like he was shining it. “Is it pretty?”

“Hell yes. You know it is.”

“It doesn’t look funny to you because I am not circumcised like American men?”

Luke swallowed hard. “No. I love that little turtleneck. I like sticking my tongue under it.” Oh crap, his cock throbbed.

Alain kept stroking. “I’m so glad. I love your member too. Especially when you put it in my back door. That was so wonderful.”

“You…you liked that?”

“Yes. I want to do it again and again when we get home.”

“You keep talking about it, and I might not make it home.”

Alain giggled. “I rather hoped that would be so.” One slender hand reached over and pulled down Luke’s fly, then, with a dive over the console, Alain swallowed his cock.

“Holy shitfire!” Don’t close your eyes. Don’t close your eyes. Watch the road. Thank God they were moving at a glacial pace. But Alain was making up for it. He sucked, swallowed, then ran his tongue all around the head. Rinse and repeat, baby. Holy crap, the kid was good. Luke had been famous in his former profession for the head he gave. He could literally tie a knot in a straw with his tongue. But man, Alain was so good. Maybe it was the sheer enthusiasm, but this kid could suck like a New York street sweeper.

Driving while shoving your cock into another man’s mouth should be a test for coordination. But he couldn’t keep his hips still. Inch three feet. Hump. Hump. Crawl half a block. Humpity-hump. Oh man, that truck driver in the delivery van was getting an eyeful, and he couldn’t care less. The guy whistled and gave a little honk, but when Luke looked over, he got a thumbs-up. He grinned. The guy probably thought Alain was a woman. The traffic in the truck’s lane moved faster, and the driver had to pull ahead, but he looked really disappointed.

Luke’s balls were tight as rocks, and he wanted desperately to get them off. “Bab—kitten, I’m going to come if you don’t quit. But shit, it feels so good.”

That spurred the kid on. Luke’s cock disappeared into a hot throat that squeezed until every nerve flamed. Then that seeking tongue pressed into his slit. Shitfire. That was it—

Today’s Special Assignment: Sadly, Cataclysmic Shift has been mis-categorized on Amazon. It’s some  kind of glitch in the system that happened last Thursday and, for five days, the book has been categorized as erotica — not even gay erotica! LOL This means no one is getting it recommended or seeing it associated with gay romance or paranormal romance.  So today, would you do something to let people know where to find Cataclysmic Shift on Amazon? Then leave me a comment or an email letting me know what you did. Here is the LINK on Amazon:

I know a lot of you enjoy Andrej Pejic. Here’s a video of the lovely model describing the fact that “some people are in the middle” of sexual identity and that should be okay too. Never did gender fluidity have a better spokesperson. (There’s one person in the video you’ll want to smack upside the head, but ignore her.)

Thank you for coming by! One more day to play in the Cataclysmic Shift Party! : )
