Release Date: October 17, 2015
Josh moved from the huge San Antonio pack to join the men at Cloverleah looking for a bit more adventure, and the chance to meet his mate. He’s quick to adapt to the much smaller pack, and even his status as one of the few beta wolves in a group full of Alphas. A chance visit from the Atlanta coven has him meeting the man he was waiting for. It was just a damn shame he was unconscious at the time.
Vadim D’Arcy should be the Regent of the Atlanta coven, but he gave up his position years before when a personal tragedy had him hiding away in his huge mansion. Forced into a situation where he had to escort a cursed vampire to Cloverleah, he realizes pretty quickly that Josh is his true match. The only problem is, he doesn’t want one.
However threats on the pack, and two interfering Fae soon nudge the two men back together. Fighting other wolves, and even vampires is becoming commonplace for the Cloverleah pack. But a dark magic user just might have the last laugh. Can Vadim fight his personal demons long enough to keep his mate safe, and will Josh be there for him when he does? Or will a combined attack from the coven and the pack in Atlanta bring the entire Cloverleah pack to its knees?
Warnings: This is an m/m erotic romance featuring a sweet but staunch beta wolf, an old as sin vampire and all your other favorites from Cloverleah. HEA and no cliff hangers guaranteed.

“Everett was known as your favorite, yet you have set him free, compelled him to leave you and never return. You have met your true match, my son.” Not a question, but a statement of fact. Vadim opened his eyes, knowing he could never lie directly to his mother. He nodded instead, as his brain once again focused on Josh. What would the young wolf be feeling, knowing that Vadim had bonded with him without permission and then rejected him as a mate? Maybe some of the pain he was feeling was coming from his mate, even if they were separated by miles. That idea didn’t make him feel any better.
“The wolf you healed?” This time his persistent mother was asking a question so Vadim nodded again.
“And you didn’t think to stay and protect him?”
Letting out a deep breath in an effort to calm himself, Vadim said slowly, “I came here to protect him, from this coven and the Atlanta pack.”
“That didn’t work out too well for you now, did it?” Eloise had a small smile on her face as though a lot happier now she knew the reason behind the loss of Vadim’s fabled control. “What are you going to do?”
Vadim would have shrugged but that was a little hard to do with his arms strung up, so he was forced to speak instead. “Wait out my punishment. If I am released in time I will go home and sort out my affairs. Either way I anticipate it will all be over for me in six weeks as I haven’t fed for a while.”
In a strong flowing movement Eloise stood up, gliding over to where Vadim was chained, her gown settling around her feet in a soft mist. The finery of the pale blue looked incongruous against the dirty concrete floor.
“You would die rather than accept your true match? Why would you do such a cruel thing to your wolf? Is he that disfigured from the attack on him that you cannot look past it?” Vadim realized his mother was not only shocked, she was hurt as well, and damn it all, Vadim didn’t like it when the lovely woman was upset. So he answered as honestly as he knew how.
“Josh is beautiful, mother,” Vadim assured her softly, remembering all too well the lovely features of his mate’s face. They would be scorched in his brain until he took his last breath. “He is a loyal fighter, a beta wolf, with tanned skin and light hair that glows like a halo in the sun. There is nothing wrong with him at all.”
“Then why?” Easily asked, harder to answer.
“Because I made a promise, mother, surely you can understand.” Vadim’s voice hardened. “My true match, my mate, he’s a wolf and he deserves to be loved with an open heart. To be held and cared for, to be protected and cherished in the way of a wolf, not bonded forever to a vampire with no heart.”

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Lisa Oliver, author of Watching Out For Fangs, which is book seven of the Cloverleah Pack series.
Hi Lisa, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.
Hello, and thank you for hosting me here today. WOFF is a true mating story between a beta wolf shifter, Josh, and an ancient vampire, Vadim. As you can imagine they are both totally different. Vadim is cold-hearted, doesn’t believe love is for him and can’t imagine himself with a mate for a number of reasons. Josh is young, a bit idealistic, but he’s been looking after his mother and his sisters for a while, and he knows a bit about how matings are supposed to go. Underneath all this, are the threats to the Cloverleah pack which haven’t been sorted yet and which both Josh and Vadim have to help with. So there is action, love and for those of you who are fond of the men at Cloverleah, a chance to meet up with them all again. This one can be read as a standalone though.
1) Is there a certain type of scene that’s harder for you to write than any others? Love? Action? Romance? Tragedy?
I have trouble with action scenes. The love is fine, sex scenes are no problem, but as I visualize things as they happen in my head, I find it difficult sometimes to get all the impressions I want to express down on paper. When I was writing Uncaged with my son, Thomas, that helped a bit because I could ask him – is this move possible, can a person do this that or the other. I still struggle with them though and they tend to be short scenes in my books because of it.
2) What do you think makes a good story?
The characters. It doesn’t matter if you love them or hate them, I think you have to feel something for them, otherwise even the most cleverly crafted story line will fall flat.
3) Do you hear from readers much? What do they say?
My readers are amazing. They connect with me on FB, they email me either directly or through my blog and they are so supportive. I can be having a bad day, and wonder what the heck I am going to write next, and then someone gets in touch and lets me know something they loved about one of my books and it is such an uplifting feeling. I love my readers and hope they realize how important they are to me.
4) How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
I think WOFF is my 17th fiction book, or 16th. No, it’s the 17th if you include the one I wrote with Thomas (which I do). My favorite though? That is really hard because there is a piece of me in all of them and I love them all for different reasons. The Cloverleah pack is my favorite series, because I have got to know the men so well, and I love how close they all are as a pack. But if I had to pick a favorite then it would be Getting Close to the Omega (Bk 5). Dean was adorable and Matthew was so lovely and I really needed for Dean to have his HEA.
5) What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
I read, a lot, lol. I am also an art student and love photography, painting and drawing with charcoal. I am also currently studying to be a life coach which keeps me busy. I have a lot of grandchildren that I like to spend time with, although my favorite thing to do is to go out for lunch. I hate cooking.
Thank you Lisa! I loved the book and love the series!
