Hi all! Today I have the pleasure of sharing one of the Forbes Mates books by Grace R. Duncan. Hope is the fifth story in the Forbes Mates series, which takes place in the good ol’ town of Pittsburgh and the surrounding area.
I’ve worked with Grace on many (all?) of her titles, and her writing continues to get stronger and more vivid. And yes, I did know her favorite author. 🙂

First, of course, is thanks to Tricia for giving me space today. I really appreciate it!
Which of your books is your favorite?
Eek! This is a hard one. There are so many different genres I write in that it’s hard to pick one. For the BDSM, I think Beautiful boy. That was one that just grabbed me and before I knew it, half of it was written. For the paranormal, I’m really torn between Patience and Acceptance. I love the humor I was able to write into Patience, but Quincy is probably my favorite of all my characters and I really want to write more with him.

#FuturisticRomance #Alien Contact
Magical stones, barley, unrequited love, and a young woman on an isolated Human colony lead to the unthinkable….
Corissa Danvins lives alone on Torben’s only Human colony that’s enclosed by an impenetrable force-field placed there by the planet’s mysterious nonhuman overlords. They’re the powerful, unseen First Dwellers. Corissa has survived family upsets, tragedy, and a broken heart. She has a rare talent and thinks it can keep the Alliance government from snatching her landholding.
She plans on using her ability to spark life in a mysterious gemstone found only on Torben—until the planet’s overlords, political events beyond her control, and a complex musician friend with a questionable mental condition—all interfere. She’ll need courage to face Torben’s secrets. Doing so might save colonists and help her find love again.

Liam Scott is sick. That’s not supposed to be possible. As a wolf shifter, he’s supposed to be able to heal. The omega gene he was born with means he’s capable of carrying shifter young and Liam is worried that whatever is wrong will mean his one-day hope of having pups will be dashed. But despite the fears keeping him away from the doctor until now, he knows he needs to go.
It turns out the sickness is temporary, but the treatment causes a whole other problem.
Mason’s alpha gene means he’s one of very few wolves who can impregnate an omega male. For two years, he’d been watching Liam, but things kept getting in the way. When Liam shows up in heat, Mason recognizes the opportunity he needs and doesn’t hesitate make to Liam his mate and the father of his pups.
But Liam has old wounds and fears to work through which the pregnancy is only making worse, and Mason isn’t sure how to get past them to show he’s serious about making a life together as loving mates. It’s not until a female wolf decides Mason should be hers that Liam makes his biggest worry known—and Mason can finally put the fears to rest.
