Please welcome Tempeste O'Riley with
Fangs With A Heart
Chain Of Fate #2
Lynx shifter Trace Wilson’s fun-loving exterior hides a heart scarred by severe domestic violence—a heart that might not ever trust another male, fated mate or not. When Trace moves to Seattle to take his place as trainer and council representative to the Glacier Rim Tribe, he discovers his mate is the vampire prince Sasha Tolstoi, leader of the Konstantin Coven. It’s not something Trace is ready to accept. Not now, maybe not ever. But if there’s one thing Sasha knows how to do, it’s how to be patient, especially when his fated heart is also his perfect sub.
When an outside force threatens the fragile bond slowly forming between them—and nearly kills Trace—Trace’s instincts shift into high gear. Sasha is powerful, and that means he has enemies, among them several rival covens and an uncle determined to force Sasha into a marriage with a vampire princess. But why involve the lynx Trace in their maneuvering? Finding the culprit won’t be easy, and it will mean building trust—a slow and difficult prospect for someone who’s suffered as much as Trace. Finding a way to move beyond the past, and to love, before those out to finish Sasha can destroy either, is a race the two fated hearts have to win.

Good morning and thank you for visiting as I celebrate book two in the Chain of Fate series release! Today I have a little about our favorite vampire brat for you. Below you will see Sasha’s bio sheet, but I wanted to spend a moment as talk about writing Sasha in this novel. You see, Sasha is usually a very fun loving and light hearted guy, even if he is a powerful prince known for being ruthless when needed. When it comes to those he is close to, he’s usually playful and fun. Writing Fangs with a Heart was a challenge at times because I wanted to write that Sasha. Sadly, for Trace and Sasha to find their HEA, they had a lot of serious issues to deal with so I got to deal with broody Sasha, and depressed Sasha, and downright viscous Sasha at times. (Hint: do not come between a vampire and his fated heart. It’s not fun. Just sayin’.)
But don’t let that scare you. Their story is one that all too real, even if it one that happens to a lynx shifter and a vampire, lol. Domestic abuse happens all too often and the long-term damage can linger and damage possible new relationships. Sasha isn’t so easily deterred, thankfully. I will be writing more with Sasha and Trace and yes, you will get to see Sasha return to his happy, light self. But there is more to come in this series… as the end of this book shows you. There is more going on than just a couple of lynx finding their fated mates. 😉 But what is it that the Gods and Fate are up to? And why? And why do our little lynx have to do with it all?
