Divine Promotions was sad to hear of the passing of Mary Lynn Hansel aka A.C. Katt. As both a friend and a wonderful author, she will be sadly missed. We decided we wanted to do one last tribute to her memory so we are doing this tour to honor her and the stories she wrote.

Remy’s Painter – Werewolves of Manhattan, #2

Scarred Mate – Werewolves of Manhattan #3
Colin Callahan, scarred as a child in a fire, delivers Chinese to supplement his income until one day he delivers to the loup garou who is his mate.

To his delight and surprise the boy on the phone delivers his food and is his destined mate.

Pack problems arise that may force Etienne into the pit. Will Julio be able to love Etienne despite the fact he is a loup garou?
Wolf Whistle – Werewolves of Manhattan #7
Werewolves of Manhattan
Richard Kerrigan is on the verge of losing hope. Fired from his job for blowing the whistle on a defect that would harm service members if used as designed, he is now blacklisted in the Chicago area. A local Serbian mobster wants Richard and won’t take no for an answer.
Garou Industries, the loup garou privately owned company, has been searching for Richard to offer him a position in the company as they value having someone with his integrity on staff. Richard relocates to Manhattan to begin his new job and stays with Julien Bellaire, his mentor, who is also Richard’s Mate.
Before they can settle in, the Serbian mobster turns up dead and a corrupt cop who secretly works for the Serbians comes to New York with trumped up charges to pin the murder on Julio. With over eighty witnesses to Julio being on an airplane at the time of the murder, the cop abandons trying to frame Julio and instead plots to murder Richard. The loup garou request assistance from the Italian mob to protect Richard which comes with some interesting consequences.
Richard slowly opened his eyes. He reached for Julien but grasped only air. After sitting up in bed, he spotted Julien in the breakfast nook off the master suite reading on his phone. He turned just as Richard was about to speak.
“You’re awake!” Julien sauntered over to the bed.
“What time is it?” Richard asked, rubbing his eyes.
“Just after ten, mon ange, are you hungry?”
“I’m starving. Julio told me about the hungries, but I thought he was exaggerating. It seems he wasn’t.”
Julien pointed to the table. “Isabel left you some sandwiches and pastries to hold you until breakfast.”
“I’ll have to thank her. As I’ve heard them say, my stomach feels like my throat’s been cut.” Richard put on his new robe and slippers and walked over to the table to sit with Julien.
After finishing his snack, Richard strode to stand at the window and parted the curtain to observe the street below. He was disappointed that he would be unable to explore his new home city right away. Basically, because of that damned cop, Stawski, he was housebound. Although, being confined with Julien was an interesting way to pass the time.
Richard pivoted to speak to Julien. Simultaneously, there was the sound of shattering glass and something whizzed by his ear.
Julien tackled him from behind.
“What was that?” Although he was pretty sure he knew the answer.
“A bullet.” Two more shattered the other panes of the window in quick succession. The terrible sound of splintering wood made him jump.
Julien kept his body over Richard’s. “Stay down, mon ange.”
The Enforcers came hurtling up the stairs. Charles and Denis ran out to the street. Three more bullets came through the window. Julien, with Richard beneath him, crawled across the room.
“Are you all right, mon ange?” Julien asked as soon as they were out of the line of sight. He picked Richard up and brought him to the loveseat in the sitting room away from the window. “I never knew I could feel such fear.”
“A little shaken up but fine.” Richard shivered. “If I hadn’t turned my head… Just when it seemed everything was going right.”
Julien’s voice lowered with emotion, “It will be all right, nothing is going to happen to you, I promise.”
“I don’t want to lose you, my wolf.”
Denis and Charles came back upstairs. “By the time we got out there, he was gone, Alpha.”
Julien hugged Richard and kissed his hair. “Isabel,” Julien shouted down the stairs, “get Richard something strong to drink. Charles, get The Alpha on the phone for me, and Denis, you call Murphy and tell him if he knows what’s good for him his ass will be at my door in fifteen minutes.”
The elevator pinged and Isabel hurried into the room with a thick afghan and a hot toddy. Charles handed the phone to Julien who put it on speaker.
“Alpha, that dirty cop just emptied his gun trying to shoot my Richard. He was outside my home! I had Denis call Murphy. I don’t know if he’s still out there.” Julien’s voice shook.
“I’ll call the others and Henri. We’re on our way.” Armand shouted before he got off the phone, “Rene, call Booker, I want him aware of everything that transpires.” The phone clicked, and Armand was gone.
“We have to get dressed, mon ange. Armand and the others are coming here. Charles, close the curtains and the shutters. Call in all of the Enforcers and set up a perimeter around the house. I want to know how this happened. We knew he was coming and should have been more prepared.”
Richard went into the bathroom and dressed quickly, staying well away from the windows.
Charles and Denis came back upstairs. “Alpha, we couldn’t find him. He had too much time to get away.” Charles cringed.
“You’ll have to do better than that. I want to know where Stawski is staying and with whom. I want to know when he takes a piss in the morning. He shot at the Alpha Mate. I will not tolerate this. The eight of you were supposed to protect him. You didn’t do your job,” Julien roared.
Richard came out of the bathroom and stood in front of his wolf with his hands on his hips. “Stop yelling at them. The guy could have been on a rooftop, and they were told to watch the street. That bullet came from a high-powered rifle. He probably had a scope. You have no idea if he was close to the house or on top of a building a block away. Give them a break.”
Richard glared at Julien. His wolf’s gaze lowered to the floor. “I suppose you’re right. But I can’t let anything happen to you. You’re my life. They have to be more vigilant and if that means I have to bring in more Enforcers from Washington and Oregon, I will.”
The doorbell rang, and Marcel came up. “Detective Murphy is downstairs waiting for you along with a CSI team. He says they need to find the bullet and that we have to leave the area while their team is gathering evidence.”
“Send him up.”
Julien’s eyes dimmed with worry.
Richard had never seen anyone that strong, look so vulnerable. “I’ll call Julio and Etienne and see if we can stay there with our household until the detective and his team finish.” He addressed Murphy, “How long will you be?”
Julien interrupted, “Armand is on his way. Can’t we stay in the formal dining room?”
Murphy shook his head. “I need you to give us a couple of hours to examine the evidence and for crime scene clean-up to board up the window. We won’t be able to prosecute without evidence. Will that be acceptable, Alpha Bellaire?”
Julien gave Murphy a withering stare. “It has to be acceptable, does it not? However, I haven’t forgotten that it was you who brought that scum to my home in the first place. If you had used your brain and directed him to Kellerman, he would have no idea where Richard lived.”
Murphy turned purple. “He had a subpoena. I had no idea it was illegally obtained and unenforceable in New York.”
“Maybe you should have made inquiries. I’m going to have words with The Alpha over this lack of discretion on your part. You put Richard in danger and there is no law against my damaging you,” Julien replied with some force.
“Come with me.” Richard rubbed soothing circles on his back. “Let the detective do his job. The sooner we leave, the sooner we can come home.”
Murphy’s face showed pure relief.
“Murphy, I will still have words with Armand about this.” Julien and Richard walked out of their suite, across the gallery, toward the office.
“Easy, Julien. I’m fine. Let’s go call Etienne. We can have drinks, something to eat, conversation, and come home when Detective Murphy is done.” Richard followed Julien into his office as he called Etienne and Armand.
A half hour later, Richard and Julien arrived at Etienne and Julio’s home. Armand came in just after they did.
“As Henri is our Director of Security, I asked him to come with us,” Armand told Julien and Etienne as Rémy, Ian, and Henri followed him in the door.
“This is totally unacceptable. Murphy brought this man to your home instead of directing him to Edward? I’m going to have Murphy’s balls. The Mates are to be protected. Murphy should know that the gods would never pick a murderer for a Mate.” Rémy, whose temper was always uncertain, growled. “I’m calling him to get his ass over here and explain himself.”
“Doesn’t Detective Murphy—” Richard started.
“Detective Sergeant Murphy,” Ian said with a straight face.
Julien sent Ian a frosty gaze. Richard kicked Julien under the table.
“Doesn’t Detective Sergeant Murphy have to stay at the crime scene?” Richard asked.
“Murphy can let one of his minions handle that. I want his ass quivering in front of me while I singe his hide,” Rémy shouted.
