Patience by Grace R. Duncan - Blog Tour with Author Guest Post and Giveaway

Follow tour here.

Jamie Ryan was almost ready to accept he’d never find his destined mate. They’re uncommon to begin with and same-sex versions downright rare. Since his gay best friend found a destined mate, Jamie figured he was out of luck. Until end of semester stress forces him to go through the full-moon shift early. Stuck in wolf form, he runs into none other than his destined mate. Who’s human.

Chad Sutton has always had good instincts. They served him well as a detective and continued on when he went private. Those instincts tell him there’s something about the dog that comes up to him while running away from animal control that isn’t quite right. He works to put the pieces together, but is unsuccessful until his dog turns into a human before his eyes.

Jamie has no idea what a shifter’s mate bite will do to a human. He’s terrified to try—and possibly kill his mate. They hunt together for answers while working together on a case for Chad. It’s easy to see they belong together, but Jamie fears the gods gave him someone he can’t keep.

This is the tenth stop on the Music Clues part of the blog tour. Links to all the stops can be found on my website at the blog tour page:

I’m a huge music fan and when I sat down to write Patience, I’d figured out pretty quickly that Chad was, as well. He absolutely loves 80s music and has a tendency to quote (or, rather, refer to them since I didn’t want to get into copyright trouble) the songs. Twelve of those 80s songs were referenced by Chad throughout Patience.

For twelve of the stops on the tour, there will be a clue (the reference) to one of the songs and an answer with excerpt for one of the other songs. You can see which blogs are participating on the blog tour page above.

For today, the answer song is Stray Cat Strut by Stray Cats.

The clue was: “As he walked away, Chad started singing under his breath about strutting with a tail in the air.”

You can see the video here:

And the excerpt from Patience:

“Hey, uh, the guy who was here? The redhead?” Jamie asked.

Quincy turned and raised an eyebrow. “Yes?”

“Miles Grant. He lives just in Shadyside.” Jamie grinned at the slight scowl on Quincy’s face.

“Why would I care?”

Jamie’s grin widened. “He can also be found through Presby’s ER. And I think you know why.”

Quincy sniffed, and Chad would have sworn that if his tail had been visible, he’d have twitched it. “I’ll look forward to your answer.”

As he walked away, Chad started singing under his breath about strutting with a tail in the air.

Quincy groaned and slammed the door before Chad could close it for him.

Jamie grinned at Chad.

“What was all that about with Miles?” Chad asked as they went back into the kitchen.

“Oh, Quincy is Miles’s mate.”

And the next clue is:
“Maybe Golden Earring had it right. Maybe I really have stepped into the—”

Each tour stop will have an individual prize as well as an entry into the grand prize.  Good luck! And thanks for participating!
