Finnshifters 3: Howl Sweet Howl by Tia FieldingLife at the Jarvela farm hobbles on when the new year rolls in. Losing his wife and co-alpha in the storm of the decade emotionally paralyzed Sean, though he tries to cope and attempts to pick up the pieces with their children. Rider, another alpha, could give him the love and comfort he needs, but Sean is too depressed to recognize the possibility of having a male partner, and he goes into mental tailspin. Rider makes the hard decision to leave for a while, and Sean turns his energy and sadness into working on the neighboring Metsala farm with the other members of their farm family. But Sean isn’t really getting better, and that won’t change until he can let his wolf out again. If he doesn’t, he might lose his sanity too.

An Excerpt from Howl Sweet Howl:Rider worked most of the morning and day, so Sean carried firewood inside from the shed and started the cleaning. It wasn’t until Zoya was gone when he really understood how much his wife had done on daily basis. He’d always laughed at the same jokes everyone did—how if a woman wasn’t at home for a day, the house looked like a warzone and the husband was frazzled beyond belief. It was funny. He knew Zoya did a hell of a lot around the house to keep it and the children tidy, food on the table, and the kids homeschooled. When he was trying to reach under the kids’ bed with the vacuum cleaner, he wondered how she’d done it all. “Need help?” Rider’s asked from the doorway. “Nah, I’m okay.” Sean was kneeling on the floor, reaching into the back corner. “You sure about that?” Something about Rider’s tone made Sean look at him over his shoulder. Rider was staring at his ass. Pointedly. With an expression of raw need on his face. “I…. Uh….” Sean swallowed. Rider tilted his head and raised a brow at him, challenging him to say something. Just as Sean opened his mouth—to say what, he didn’t know—the front door of the house opened and a babbling horde of kids poured in. “Later.” Rider’s tone was firm, like a caress, and then he was gone to greet the kids.
Positive by Tia FieldingEven after a decade, the life that journalist Brent Walsh and Milwaukee homicide detective Shawn Mackey have made together is far from boring. But when a new case cuts a weekend getaway short, they aren’t quite prepared for how it will impact their personal lives. Suddenly there’s too much to juggle: Shawn will be working the case of the sharpshooter who is trying to infect random people with HIV, Brent needs to cover the story but fears a conflict of interest, one of Shawn’s colleagues is attracted to him, and Brent sincerely needs to mend the painful break with his childhood best friend, Ollie, and heal their broken hearts. Though the case comes to a close, it’s not the end of their troubles. Shawn and Brent still face a past of old white lies, a present possibility of inviting another man to their bed, and a future with children, not to mention health issues and national fallout from the case. It’s enough to make them want to run away—until they realize they have to face those challenges head-on so they can get on with the life of love they’re hoping for.

Tia started writing stories early on, almost as soon as she learned how to write. The early stories about horses and ghosts have changed into romantic tales about people in love. She stopped writing at some point in her late teens and early twenties, but began again half a decade ago after finding fan fiction. Tia is not ashamed of her past of borrowing other people’s characters, but has found creating her own much more satisfying.
