When Ellie moved to the SpiralStone retreat center to figure out her life, she expected peace, quiet, and spiritual practice. She had no idea that the two sexy men running the kitchen would seduce her…much less at the same time. Kyle and Jake turn out to be wilder than they seem and Ellie finds herself wrapped up in devastating magic. She must choose: stay with Jake and Kyle and risk who she has been, accepting the dangerous world of shapeshifters? Or leave them and risk madness, or worse?

Jake turned the shower on while Kyle kissed her senseless. Ellie threaded her fingers into Kyle’s short blond curls, and suddenly Jake was behind her, untying her shorts. Kyle drew her top up, and she could feel Jake’s bare chest against her back.
She was just in her bra and panties when Kyle released her to pop the button on his jeans. Then he kissed her again, nipping his way down her body.
Jake made an appreciative noise from behind her, and she turned her head. He kissed her, grinding his hips against her buttocks. Distracted by Jake kissing her, she gasped when Kyle brushed his fingers over her mound, rubbing her through her panties. He nipped at her hip, and she felt him dragging her underwear down. She tugged him up and kissed him.
“Shower first,” she murmured.
Kyle grinned, placing her hands on the waistband of his jeans to tug them off. Her jaw dropped just a little as his length sprung out. “Oh my,” she whispered.
He drew her to him and into the steaming shower, kissing her. Jake closed the glass shower door behind him; it was just big enough for three. She took them both in before they drew closer.
Jake tipped her head back into the water to wet it before he began lathering up her hair, his fingers massaging her scalp as she blissed out.
Kyle grabbed a washcloth and washed her from shoulders to feet until she shivered. Ellie blushed and protested when his fingers slipped between her folds until she moaned. Jake claimed her lips as Kyle began to circle her pearl where she was slick with arousal. “So wet, baby.”
Jake slid his hands over her body, down to her buttocks, lathering up her back with body wash. Then he was splitting her buttocks to wash her there as Kyle drove two fingers into her pussy.
She cried out into Jake’s mouth at the sensation. She’d never been kissed like this before—the hot water falling on them, Jake’s tongue lapping at her lips even as Kyle was pleasuring her where she’d been swollen and hot for them for so long.
Ellie moaned, thrusting down onto Kyle’s fingers. How many times had she blushed, fantasizing about them doing this to her? She was already on the edge of orgasm from the thrill of having them both totally focused on her pleasure and so many days without release.
Kyle circling her pearl had her gasping for breath against Jake’s lips. “That’s it,” he murmured, stroking in and out.
Their touches finally drove her over the edge. Ellie cried out, bucking, and they had to hold her up as her knees gave. Jake kissed her, and then Kyle kissed her, and she threaded her fingers through both their hair while they murmured sweet things, petting her.
“Feel a little better?” Kyle asked, and she blushed.
“I’ll take that as a yes,” Jake grinned.
She panted, knowing the two of them were not done with her yet.

A Winter Knight’s Vigil
Interview with Holly Hewson
HH: Shauna, thank you so much for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is Werewolves in the Kitchen. Where did you get the idea for this sizzling romance?
SAK: Thanks very much for having me! The idea for Werewolves in the Kitchen came to me while I was living at a retreat center similar to the place described in the book. It was lonely, monastic work—six of us lived on site, and everyone was almost 30 years older than me. Zero romantic prospects. One day while I was doing my laundry in the catering kitchen, I started to wonder, what would happen if there were two sexy guys and one pent up woman here….And the scene where Ellie, Kyle, and Jake pounce on each other just fell into my mind. By the time I’d written the end of that scene, I knew that Jake and Kyle were werewolves. The rest of the story came together after that.
HH: What can you tell us about Ellie and why will readers identify with her?
SAK: Ellie has a lot of the same fears and concerns that most people do. She’s just been through a big upheaval in her life, and she’s also in the unenviable position of having a crush on a guy (or in this case, guys) that she thinks would never be attracted to her. She’s embarrassed to ask for what she wants—both of them—because it’s such a taboo. When Jake and Kyle both drag her into their bed Ellie starts out a bit unsure about the whole thing, but all that primal tension they’ve built up works its own magic to inspire Ellie’s confidence.
HH: What do you like best about Kyle and Jake and why will readers love them?
SAK: Aside from being sexy hot, Jake and Kyle are hilarious together. When I started writing the scenes where they banter about how exactly to court Ellie, I actually started laughing out loud because they are both so incredibly sweet, but completely clueless about how to seduce a human. Their primal nature is at war with their desire to not scare Ellie off…of course, the primal gets pretty spicy.
Here’s my favorite funny little interchange between the two:
“Was she running away from us?”
Jake folded his arms. “You scared her off.”
“Me? I’m not the one who was all, ‘Would you like some lemonade?’ No, that didn’t spook her.”
“You were about to force feed her pie.”
“I was just offering.” Kyle tugged his apron off.
HH: What makes this story different from your other works?
SAK: I typically write a lot of Paranormal Romance, but I actually tend to write more vampires and psychic/mage stories. This is only the second shifter story I’ve ever come up with. It’s also the only ménage a trios I’ve ever written. At least, so far. Most of my writing is M/F, but I’m definitely inspired to write M/F/M again.
HH: What do you think about its reception so far?
SAK: I’ve had a lot of positive feedback, including a lot of really lovely personal notes from people who’ve read the book and enjoyed it. Now I just need to talk some of them into leaving public reviews. J Given that this is my first piece of published fiction, I’m really glad to hear how many people love the story.
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
SAK: I have two novellas coming out in the next months. A Fading Amaranth is a Paranormal/Vampire Romance; at least part of the book will be available as a free download. Alexandra’s psychic abilities make it impossible for her to be in a relationship until she meets Nathaniel, a vampire who has lost his muse. They accidentally end up helping some local mages stalk a Faerie monster so there’s a mixture of spice and adventure.
Another is an Urban Fantasy The White Dress, the Autumn Leaves. Jack and Meredith fall in love at a festival, but Meredith has dreamed her own death.
Other longer works that I’m finishing up include two Paranormal Romances. In A Golden Heart of Glass, Angel begins working with the goddess Aphrodite and is then surprised when that magic begins to fill her with desire, as well as attract the monsters that hide in the alleys. In Twelve Drops of Blood, a young woman and a 4,000 year old vampire work to solve one of the riddles of the Grail Quest before a Cabal of half-human monsters can capture them.
HH: What can you tell us about day-to-day life for you as an author?
SAK: This probably won’t surprise anyone, but it’s a very solitary life. I’m a writer, artist, graphic designer, and event planner, so most of my days are me and my computer trying to get various projects done. I also run the occasional concert or other event in Chicago, as well as travel and teach, so I will sometimes go for weeks without seeing anyone, and then suddenly I’ll be presenting workshops at a festival or running an event and I’ll be dealing with hundreds of people.
HH: What are you reading now?
SAK: I have a huge TBR pile of books that I’ve been working through, but I haven’t had much time to read. I almost always enjoy an Emma Holly book and have a few of those in my wishlist. I just read Inked Magic and Inked Destiny by Jory Strong and absolutely loved them.
HH: What appearances do you have coming up in 2014?
SAK: At the moment, all of my appearances are for my nonfiction writing and teaching work, however, I’m looking to work out some additional appearances for my fiction books while I’m already traveling. I teach public speaking, workshop facilitation, leadership and community building, as well as personal growth and transformation work. Primarily this is within the metaphysical/alternative spirituality community, however, I also teach public speaking for grassroots groups like writers and artists. In February I’ll be out at San Jose at Pantheacon, and a week later I’ll be in Detroit at ConVocation. I might be in Minneapolis in March, and then in early May I will be in Texarkana. I’m definitely looking to break up the drive down with some stops perhaps in Central Illinois, St. Louis, and a few other places if I can arrange for it. Later in May I’ll be in Burns, Tennessee at a festival. I’m hoping to work out another trip to New York like I did last year, as well as some potential stops at a few Science Fiction/Fantasy conventions, but we’ll see how that goes.
HH: Where can readers find you online?
SAK: Mostly you can find me interacting on Facebook and folks are welcome to contact me there.
