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.”

Q & A with author Lisa Oliver
Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Lisa Oliver author of Watching Out For Fangs, Book 7 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 today. So excited about this new book. Josh hasn’t been in the Cloverleah pack for very long – he used to be part of the San Antonio pack though, so we have met him a few times. Josh is amazing, a beta wolf in a pack full of Alphas, and he has the caring gene in spades. In this book he is going to need them because Vadim is mean, ancient and a vampire who definitely doesn’t want a mate for reasons of his own. Between that, and the pack being in trouble, Josh has a lot to handle.
1) What book do you wish you could have written?
Gone With The Wind – the phrase, “I’ll worry about it tomorrow,” or words to that effect have stayed with me since I was a teenager and that was many, many years ago.
2) How important are names to you (in your books)? Do you choose names based on liking the way it sounds or meaning? How do you choose your names?
I think we all have an association with names. I use a baby naming site for ideas, but I think we all have this idea in our heads about how a name reflects on a person. For example I wouldn’t write about a Bruce, or a Stephen unless they were the bad guys (I have a Stephen in this book) because they are not positive names from my early years.
3) Were you already a great writer? Have you always enjoyed writing? How long have you been writing?
Wow. Okay, I am blushing now, because I don’t think I am a great writer. I am a writer who loves what I do with a passion. I could also be called an improving writer, because hopefully my books get better with each one. I have been writing for over ten years, but I didn’t write my first fiction book until November 2013.
4) Which character, from any of your books, do you consider your greatest work?
I love them all, for totally different reasons. The men at Cloverleah are such a good bunch of guys, but I also love the twinky/Alpha combinations in the Alpha and Omega series. My favorite character has always been Griff from The Runaway Cat, but that is because I have a warm spot for bad boys with tattoos and a gentle heart.
5) What hobbies do you enjoy?
Reading is my greatest passion, but I also enjoy art. I paint, draw and love photography, especially rural nature scenes.
