Book Name: Strike of the Diamondback
Book 4 in the Venomous Mate series
Release Date: February 1, 2015
Author Name: Jackie Nacht
Short, sexy and sweet— where a little love goes a long way.
That’s the best way to describe Jackie Nacht’s stories. She was introduced to M/M Romance through her sister, Stephani, and read it for years. Then, she thought it was time to put her own stories on paper. Jackie began writing short and sweet stories that ended with a happily ever after.
Thinking back to her own book addiction, where there were many nights Jackie stayed up way too late so she could read just one more chapter— yeah, right— Jackie decided to write short romances for young adults as well as adults. Hopefully, they will give high school and college students, or working men and women something they can read during their lunch hour, in between classes or just when they want to briefly get away from the daily stresses of everyday life.

Two years ago, TL came across his fire ant mate, Rio. Duty kept them apart, and they were only able to love each other from afar.
When Striker escapes the tortures of the anti-venom pack, running into the wild, he didn’t expect to encounter his mate. However, he is a shell of his former self, broken from the abuse done to him.
Rio saved TL once, and when his TL comes to ask for help, Rio finds himself shocked that the venom he’s always loved is holding their mate, a mate they’ll have to heal together.
Authors Note: The first half of this book overlaps in timeline to Pursued by the Wandering Spider. For better reading enjoyment, it is best the series be read in order. Thank you.
Two years ago
TL was in a fucking load of trouble. This nasty bitch of a viper was giving him one hell of a fight. He swung his arm and landed a punch to her horned nose. She hissed and came back at him with a wicked-looking blade. The viper was completely bald, her entire body covered in snakeskin. She was lean and sleek, but TL knew firsthand, she was very fucking lethal. He jumped back as she swung, and he went for his hunting knife.
The snake had already gotten a piece of one of his wings, making it completely impossible for him to fly his way out of this situation.
The viper female She was strong, and he was in her territory. Why the hell hadn’t he waited for Boone? TL sliced the knife through the air, causing a deep gash to her chest but not enough to bring her down. She charged him, crazed, fangs leaking the venom TL wanted nothing to do with. He kicked out and missed. She tackled him to the ground, sinking her blade deep in his side.
“Ahhh!” TL screamed out in utter agony. The white-hot pain caused him to fall back, completely defenseless as his enemy straddled him.
With the last of his strength, he pushed up, slicing the viper under the arm. She screamed, hissed, wriggling around, more snake than human, much like the venom she presented right on top of him. TL attempted to get out from underneath, still bleeding like crazy. He managed to break free, and try to gain as much distance as he could while unable to get off his damn hands and knees.
She came back, maddened and enraged, and TL held up his arms, waiting for his end. She slithered toward him at a speed only venom of superior strength could match.
A boot shot out in front of him, connecting with her face, just a mere feet from his own body. He glanced up to see a man standing above him with a ball mace in his hand and enough other weapons on his body for a small army. The muscular man pulled a machete and went after the female. TL’s head fell back. He didn’t even have enough strength in him to see who won. Closing his eyes, he let the darkness take him.
Thank you for coming by!

The boy nodded. “I-yes. I’m Jonah. Cole?”
Cole nodded, unable to make his voice work. Soulful chocolate brown eyes. The smell of newly mown hay, orange groves, and clean young man. No wonder Demon seemed familiar.
“You were Demon.” Cole said, finally able to speak.
Cole couldn’t verbalize his racing thoughts. He was shaking, sick at the thought of what Jonah had suffered, stunned, thankful. His knees threatened to give, and he grabbed the stall door to keep himself upright.
Jonah trembled. “My brother… he locked me in horse form. I forgot who I was. Forgot how… how to be h-human.”
Rage, fear, and a fierce need to protect had Cole ready to rip Nathan Marks apart.
Jonah looked lost and confused.
Cole wanted to pull Jonah into his arms and take his fear away, but he was afraid to move. “Tell me what happened.”
“C-can’t, not now. I… need… hold me.”

Thanks Tara for having us on your blog! Today is the second installment of the interviews. Today it is Dov and Kane—Jambrea’s boys. If you want to see Simon and Josiah – Cherie’s boys, you need to go to Tempe’s blog. http://tempesteoriley.com/big-bone-lick-pack-anthology-interview-and-giveaway/
Dov and Kane walked into the coffee shop where they were scheduled to meet Jambrea. All the others were supposed to be there as well. He was hoping to see Simon. He wanted to get to know the fox shifter better, but Simon was still a bit afraid of him. Dov hated that. He wanted to be friends with the man because it was hard being the new guy in such a big pack.
They followed Ms. Noel and Jambrea into the café. Ms. Noel went towards Simon and Josiah while Dov held out his hand for Kane. He gripped his mates hand as they settled into a table at the back of the café. He didn’t know why he was nervous, but he could feel the fear coming from Simon. It made him sad because he’d tried to be as nice as possible.
“It’s okay, babe.” Kane kissed Dov’s palm and put their joined hands on his thigh.
“I know. I just hate that he fears me.” Dov shrugged.
“Don’t worry, Dov, he’ll come around. Remember, he is new to the whole shifting thing and you’re a big bear. He is an itty bitty fox.” Jambrea soothed.
“I guess. So why are we doing this again? Didn’t we already do an interview?” Dov really wanted to go home.
“Well—we did. Kind of. But this is just some fun stuff. You have fans you know. They want to know more about you so we thought we’d ask a few questions. That okay with you? No cookies this time, but the tea here is great. We can relax. I promise this will be painless and hopefully fun. These questions are thanks to Kendall. She does them on her blog and agreed to let me use them. ” Jambrea smiled at him.
It was almost as if she was a shifter and could feel his unease. She was pretty spooky that way. Somehow she had the uncanny knack of knowing things before they happened.
“It’ll be fine Dov. We’ll do this for the stories and go home. Maybe have a run.” Kane squeezed his hand and didn’t let go.
Dov needed that connection. He was off kilter today and needed to shake it off.
“Now these questions might seem a bit off the wall, but I will tell you at some point I will be answering these as well. I wouldn’t put you through something I wasn’t willing to do myself. Well—most of the time.” Jambrea winked.
“Okay. I’m ready.” Dov nodded.
The sooner they got this over with the better. The waitress showed up and took their order. Kane got coffee, not that Dov was surprised, but he got tea and so did Jambrea.
After the waitress left, Jambrea began the interview.
“First question. You can both answer or just one of you. Remember to have fun and relax. I’ll start easy with a music question. Madonna or Cyndi? Katie or GaGa?
“Really? Man—does none of the above count? How about some Hank Williams or Alabama. Garth or Reba. Those are some singers.” Kane answered first.
“I have to agree with Kane, but I do happen to like all the four ladies you listed.”
“Well—I’ll listen to them, but I’d rather have on the country station. I have expanded some of my music since Dov moved in. He likes pop. I’m more of a country or classic rock kind of guy.”
“Both great answers. Let’s keep this going. Next question. Anakin and Luck are classic archetypes (The Hero & The Christ Figure), or just a couple of whiney brats.
“Whiney brats.” Kane and Dov spoke at the same time.
Dov looked at Kane and smiled. Kane grinned right back and Dov couldn’t help himself, he leaned over and brushed their lips together. He loved this man and he was happy just to be sitting next to him. It made the anxiety he felt about Simon disappear. They would fix thing so Simon wasn’t afraid.
“Aww.” Jambrea let out a little sigh. “You two are just so darn cute. I’m so happy I got to work with you.” She clapped her hands together.
Dov shook his head and backed away from Kane. If he wasn’t careful, Dov would give a show to the whole café. He knew Jambrea wouldn’t mind because she liked that kind of thing, but he really wanted that kept private. They’d given away too much already as it was.
The waitress came back with their drink order. Dov finally let go of Kane’s hand. Dov wrapped both his hands around the tea and took a deep breath. It smelled heavenly.
“Next?” Kane asked. He was still grinning and Dov didn’t blame him.
The situation could have been uncomfortable, but Jambrea always put them at ease.
Jambrea cleared her throat. “Right. Next question. Star Wars or Star Trek?”
“Do we have to pick? I like them both.” Dov shrugged.
“I do like them both, but I’m more of a Star Trek fan. Especially the reboot. They cast those new movies so perfectly and I can’t wait for the next one. Dov and I watch them all the time. And they have that guy from Sherlock in the second one. Sherlock is one of my new favorite shows.”
“I do like Sherlock, but I’m more of a Dr. Who fan myself. Or Torchwood. I still get upset over Ianto. He was my favorite character.”
“You two are going to make me cry. Ianto was my favorite too. He was so perfect for Jack. I know some didn’t like the American Torchwood, but I really enjoyed it. Probably because I watched it a while after the first series. Dr. Who is a new favorite for me too. We have so much in common. Maybe I could come over some time and we can do a marathon. I love movies and tv almost as much as reading.” Jambrea grinned and took a sip of her tea.
“That would be fun. But not grilling.” Kane pointed a finger at Jambrea.
“Well—unless we’re having steaks.” Dov winked.
Jambrea just shook her head. “Okay you two, we’re done for now, but I reserve the right to call you back for more questions if I need to.”
Dov was happy with the first part, but then Jambrea had to ruin it with the talk of more questions. If he could keep her out of their sex life, he’d be happy.
“I can deal with that and we need to make plans for you to come over. Maybe we could throw a small party with the other guys and authors in the anthology. Watch some movie or something. Maybe we can get Simon to calm down enough to enjoy it too!” Kane sounded all excited.
“That could be fun. I have a new recipe I could try out.” Dov loved it when Kane was excited.
“Oh! I love having someone cook for me. I’m in!” Jambrea grinned.
She wasn’t too bad as long as she was just there as a friend. Now if she came to them talking about a sequel, all bets were off.
For today’s prize Jambrea is giving away a stuffed Dov and Kane.
You’ll hear from Asa and Seth when we visit the Love of Bookends blog on Sunday the 9th. http://www.loveofbookends.blogspot.com/?zx=e3b8f37a4b905a84
The wolves are coming! Did you know i’ve written my first werewolf books? Yep. They are coming in 2014 from Dreamspinner. The first book is called The Pack or the Panther and it releases in January–
Cole Harker, son of an alpha werewolf, is bigger and more powerful than most wolves, tongue-tied in groups, and gay. For twenty-four years, he’s lived to please his family and pack—even letting them promise him in marriage to female werewolf Analiese to secure a pack alliance and help save them from a powerful gangster who wants their land. Then Cole meets Analiese’s half-brother, panther shifter Paris Marketo, and for the first time, Cole wants something for himself.
When Analiese runs off to marry a human, Cole finally has a chance with Paris, but the solitary cat rejects him, the pack, and everything it represents. Then Cole discovers the gangster wants Paris too and won’t rest until he has him. What started as a land dispute turns into World War Wolf! But the bigger fight is the battle between cats and dogs.
The second book in the series is called Wolf in Gucci Loafers and it releases in April. At that same time, the two books will be printed together in one paperback volume.
I’ve had a blast writing these two books and hope you’ll enjoy them! Of course, i’ll be keeping you up to date on the releases as we approach them.
Tomorrow, Sascha Illyvich, Beverly Ovalle, and Carolyn Wren will be here talking about three great new releases. Stop by! : )
