Gay Book Reviews is proud to welcome AF Henley to the blog to give us a sneak-peek at the sequel to : Wolf, en Garde.
The days are flying by on this blog tour and I can’t even begin to express how much fun I’m having with it. Thank you joining me; I hope you’ve been having as much fun as I am. ?
However, not to disclude those that might be joining for the first time—hello! Welcome! I’ve been introducing, and in some cases re-introducing, the characters that make up Wolf’s stories through tiny teasers from the novel. Glad to have you here! There are a lot more posts on the way and I hope I can interest you enough to join us for the rest of them.
So, it’s been a few months since I’ve had a chance to sit down (figuratively) with these characters but for those moments when I’ve be reliving them through edits. The characters are much less fun in edits than they are during writing, let me tell you. That’s when you start doing the… Why in the hell would you say that?!.. kind of thing. Or… You really are a whiny little brat; did you know that?! Oddly enough, there’s one character in the Wolf series that I’ve never had a harsh word to say on. She is Wolf’s little light, although I doubt the rest of the characters know that yet, and as I’ve been writing the series I’ve come to understand that there’s a lot more to her than her Beauty and the Beast pyjamas.
However, before I jump to the teaser, I want to take this chance to remind you to read through to the end of the post to find out how you could win your very own signed, print copy of Wolf en Garde, a sterling silver (nickel and lead-free) Howling Wolf Bangle, and a $20 gift certificate to the Less Than Three Press book market! My way to say thank you for your time, your comments, but most of all, your company.
And now to Hannah…
Tiny Teaser: Introducing – Hannah O’Connell
They finished their adventures with a visit to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. It was there that Hannah and Isaac perked up and took off their this-feels-like-a-school-trip expressions. But the burst of energy everyone experienced at that point was short-lived and the last of its kind for the day. As they drove back to the townhouse, they were promised future visits to the National Gallery of Art, the Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Museum of National History, as well as the Center for the Performing Arts. The thought made Lyle’s head spin. In the week they would be in D.C., Lyle was going to see more of the world by way of museum and memorial than he’d seen in his entire life. They really had led a very narrow, uneventful existence, if one conveniently ignored the part of their lives that had intimate contact with the things most people only saw in horror movies.
“And don’t think this is all going to be nothing but boring old statues,” Henry said, casting a quick glance at the seats behind him through his rearview mirror. “I haven’t forgotten that our Hannah has an affinity for gardening. I have a special place picked out for you, Hannah. The Botanic Gardens. That place is going to blow your flower-loving mind!”
The look on Isaac’s face after he realized he’d groaned aloud was too hilarious. Lyle was unable to contain a snort of laughter but, surprisingly, Henry laughed right along with Lyle.
“Don’t you worry, Isaac. I have something in mind for you,” Henry promised. “Something no boy would be able to pass up in a hundred years!”
Isaac cast a confused but interested glance at Lyle and then turned his gaze to the rearview. “Oh? What’s that, Mr. Connor?”
“Henry,” Henry corrected, his mouth set in a wide grin. “And it’s only the bestest thing in the whole world.” His eyes flicked left, right, left, right, gauging his passenger’s expressions. “A ghost and vampire tour!”
Randy and Lyle both choked at the same time, and Vaughn slipped an arm around Randy’s shoulders. “Oh, now, I don’t know about that,” Vaughn said slowly. “That might be a little much for these guys—”
“No, it won’t!” Isaac straightened in his seat, shaking his head. “That sounds awesome!”
“The sparkle kind?” Hannah asked. “Because Daddy says that—”
“Hannah,” Vaughn warned.
Hannah’s bright-eyed expression faltered. “What? I’m just asking because—”
“Yes, we know,” Vaughn said. “That was just a story, Hannah.” He eyed Henry’s reflected gaze. “I swear, the things these kids read these days.”

Three years ago Lyle made a mistake that cost him his freedom, and almost his life. Now, sick to death of watching his father love the man that Lyle wanted, Lyle accepts an offer to leave Wolf, WY behind and see what life in Washington, D.C. can do for him instead.
When Lyle comes across a seductive, attractive stranger with a fascinating yet terrifying view of humanity, he’s more than intrigued. It doesn’t take Lyle long to realize that Arius isn’t just playing games, though, and when Lyle runs across a secret in Arius’ lair he has no choice but to flee, even knowing his actions will enrage Arius.
On the run, with only a psychic’s second sight and his own instinct to help him, Lyle has nowhere to go but home. The only question is, will they have him when he shows up.

About the Author
Henley was born with a full-blown passion for run-on sentences, a zealous indulgence in all words descriptive, and the endearing tendency to overuse punctuation. Since the early years Henley has been an enthusiastic writer, from the first few I-love-my-dog stories to the current leap into erotica.
A self-professed Google genius, Henley lives for the hours spent digging through the Internet for ‘research purposes’ which, more often than not, lead seven thousand miles away from first intentions but bring Henley to new discoveries and ideas that, once seeded, tend to flourish.
Henley has been proudly publishing with Less Than Three Press since 2012.
