In the Spotlight: Parker Williams

Welcome, Parker, to my blog. We got to chat a bit about his new release, Scent of the Heart.

Any particular experience with scents?
All kinds of them. Working in a kitchen for 25 years, I got to experience sweet, savory, mouthwatering, and a few things that I had to plug my nose, because I couldn’t understand why anyone would want to put that in their mouth. (Example: Gruyere cheese, which when cooked on onion soup smells distinctly of feet.)

What is your most favorite scent?
I love lilacs. Not the smell of candles that are lilac scented, but the trees that bear the flowers. There’s just something about them that I could rest beneath a tree of them forever.

What is your least favorite scent?
Having four dogs who have had a run-in with a skunk, I’m going with that smell. (Sorry, Sev, it just doesn’t do anything for me.)

What is the most memorable scent?
A soap we used to buy. It was a vanilla brown sugar, and I absolutely loved the smell of it on Paul’s body.

What do you associate the following scents with?
– sweet: Lilacs
– tangy: Mustard
– sharp: Ammonia
Thank you, Parker!

Blurb:

Casey Scott grew up being told he’d never amount to anything, and despite the unwavering love and support from his best friend, Jake, the idea sticks in the back of Casey’s mind. When he discovers he has a unique destiny in an enclave where shifters and humans live together, he seizes the chance, wanting for once in his life to be someone special.

Tsvetok Yerokhin lost his parents to the evil ruler of the enclave when he was a boy. The responsibilities of raising his two younger brothers nearly overwhelmed him and self-doubt took over. When the new Alpha and his Protector arrive in time to save his life, Sev is grateful, but he’s even more shocked when he scents his mate with them.

Casey isn’t prepared for the feelings that sweep over him when he meets Sev, but he refuses to act on them because he’s straight. Still, there is something so alluring about Sev that Casey can’t help being drawn to him.

As the two explore the edges of their new discovery, an evil returns, determined to control the enclave or destroy it. The Alpha and Protector are powerless to stop it, but Casey holds the key to victory. If he can discover what it is, he has a chance to save them all. To be the hero. Unfortunately, the hero has to be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice, and for Casey that means losing his heart.

Excerpt:

“This night is shot,” Casey mumbled. “Hakii, if you’re there, I’m sorry. I need to find him. I’ll try to be back as soon as I can. Oh, and if you’re not there, I hope you’re getting a damn good laugh at me talking to myself.”

The night air had chilled considerably. Casey threw on a sweater and hurried to the Alpha’s house. Before he could pound on the door, it swung open. Jake stood there wearing nothing at all.

“Oh god, my eyes.”

Jake sighed. “You’ve seen me before. A lot, if I recall correctly.”

“And every time I do, I remember that I need to create eye bleach.”

Jake faked a laugh. “Yeah, you’re hilarious. What do you want?”

“A guy came to my house tonight. His name is Sev, and I think he’s in trouble.”

All humor fled from Jake’s face. “What happened?”

Casey told him about the visit. “He…called me his mate. What the hell is that about?”

“Later. We’ve got to find him.”

In an instant, Jake transformed into a beautiful black jaguar. Zak came rushing to the door. “What is wrong?”

Before Casey could answer, Zak grabbed a heavy coat and squirmed into it. “Jake will track him. You will come with us.”

“Zak, he called me his mate. Why would he do that?”

“You worry about this now? I do not see where this matters. If you prefer, you may stay behind.”

Casey sobered immediately. “No, you’re right. I’m sorry.”

They tracked Jake as he hurried to the woods. When they heard him roar, Zak and Casey ran to the edge of the forest. Jake had transformed back to his human form and, man, was he pissed.

“Come out here, now,” he demanded.

There was no movement, but Casey heard a clicking noise, followed by the familiar stamping of feet.

“You spray me and I swear to the gods I will neuter you. Put your damn tail down and face us as a man, Sev.”
