Shift into Romance with Wolf, in League (Wolf #3) by A.F. Henley (guest post, teaser, and giveaway)


Wolf, in League (Wolf #3) by A.F. Henley

It is such a huge pleasure to not only be back as a guest here on Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words, but to be able to introduce you to the third release in my Wolf series, Wolf, in League. This is such an exciting time for me and I am honoured to be able to share that moment with you. For those who might be joining the tour for the first time, welcome, and thank you very much for stopping in. For those who have been following along since the start, thank you, it’s awesome to have you back.

As I’ve no doubt already said along the line, I promised myself I was going to keep the intros short, get right to the excerpts, and try not to take up too much of everybody’s valuable time. But I beg you for just a quick moment so that I can let you know about the giveaway I’ve got coming along with me. To celebrate this new release, I’m offering up a signed, print copy of Wolf in League, a “crystal and silver” diamante Howling Wolf Pendant, and a $20 gift certificate to the Less Than Three Press book market, to one lucky tour-wide winner. Just follow through to the end of the post for all the details.

And now, the teaser, and another quick look at Wolf’s villain…

Tiny Teaser: Post 11

Brothers, hear me…

His fingers stilled. His expression darkened. Sweet fuck, he hated the formality. Despised it, even. “Brothers.” As if. As if in a hundred thousand decades that would ever be the feeling he’d have for the rest of them. But the dark old princes insisted on it, and for now it was wise to keep the illusion of servitude. There would come a time when he would make the rules. After all, didn’t they already lean in to listen? Didn’t they already ask him the how and the when and the where? Did they not cock their eyebrows and pretend to confer and consider while merely waiting for him to give them the answers? Was he not, in fact, already making the rules? Setting up the game pieces? Making the moves?

And was he not already making them very well?

Oh, yes. He was.

At least in this crazy world of Skype and emails, scanners and instant messaging, there was no need for mental connections or face-to-face meetings. A good thing, really. The time he would have had to take socializing, smiling, and convincing others with his sure expressions and stances was time well saved. And there was so fucking much to do.

… It is time. Time in Europe and Asia. Time in America, in Africa, Australia, and the Antarctic. Time in every corner of every continent, every county and city of every country.

It is time to rise.

Wolf, in League Excerpt

Wolf, in League

It’s been months since anyone at the Committee has had any contact from the O’Connell family or their pack members, and they are not happy. Suspicious of the activities that took place in D.C. and determined to find out what the wolves are up to, the Committee recruits one of their newest residents, Doctor Matthew Dietrich, to play the part of neighbor and infiltrate the family.

Matthew has always been a keep-to-himself kind of person. Though idealistic and optimistic, he prefers to work in solitude, at night, while he researches the findings that he hopes will one day change the world. When he’s approached by the executives of the Center, he has no idea why they’d choose him. And to say he is skeptical over the concept of men that can shift into wolves would be an understatement. Until he meets his new partner, the man that will play the part of his “husband” in the Committee’s scheme, Doctor Gavin Strauss.

Genre: Gay, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

Notes: Wolf, in League contains some explicit and violent content

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.


  1. I’m such a terrible person, by the end of this I was imagining the older Vampires on their laptops and “computer phones.” “Oh great it’s this guy again…now how do I answer…oh it’s an IM. How do people use this thing to type?” “Brothers, hear me….” “I hear you and….” “The time has come….” “Stop typing so fast” “Why does thing keep dinging with every response?” “You can turn that off in the settings.” “The what?” “Okay guys there are five thousand of us, this is getting irritating. You don’t have to reply to everything.” “These are the old ways *Pile of poo emoji”


    On the other hand, wow, gearing up for some throw down. As always, very intrigued.

  2. What Frosty said. 😆😆😆

    But now I am curious… does every vampire speak English or is there a translator app loaded? Yes, I am getting technical. 😜

    I can’t seem to come up with something as creative as Frosty without giving spoilers, so I’m going to have to just call it here. Thank you for sharing! 😄❤️

    1. Who really knows with vampires? I’d imagine if they’re that old they’ve learned a few languages along the way. XD

      I wonder what the original tongue of the vampire was? Do we go back to Vlad or do we believe it to be someone else? Interesting…

      Thank YOU for stopping to read and comment! ❤


  3. Ah social media app — on one hand, it made you able to communicate through distances, on the other hand, sometimes you’re face to face with a person, and all you want is checking the messages on your phone *been there done that*

    1. *highfives* That is literally me, every day. But in my defense, I communicate so much better electronically. XD

      Thank you again for taking part in the tour! Good luck with the giveaway. ❤


  4. You know, since the very first time you wrote about him, I am still trying to figure out your villain. Is he just that evil or has he gone crazy? From all he has said in the various scenes in various novels that he had, I know it sounds crazy but he does have a point. It is his argumentation, his conclusion that deeply worries me.

    I wonder how deeply he was hurt (if at all) in his past. Or is his being so bad solely a result of his…well…not being a human being anymore?

    That last paragraph in your awesome excerpt is true reason to be scared. It sounds so final. Something big, bad is coming over humanity.

    You, my friend, a master tease! 😀

  5. Congrats on your new book. It sounds great. I love gay urban fantasy and paranormal, and the book blurb and excerpt made it a tbr.

    1. I’m very sorry about that! I had so many posts that I didn’t want to give away *too* much. I was hoping that this teaser, be it tiny, would pack a lot of punch! 😀

      Thank you very much and good luck with the giveaway. ❤


    1. I like that concept, thank you! They are a creepy bunch, that’s for sure! 😀

      I’m so glad you’re still following the tour with me. Thank you, and good luck with the giveaway! ❤


  6. Great teaser someone is not happy with modern tech! As usual it’s another creepy teaser again! Not that I mind I’m getting more and more intrigued.

    1. Thank you! I swear that there is just as much romance in the novel as there is creepy. The blog tour excerpts just showed a lot more of the first than the second. LOL! 😀

      Good luck! ❤


  7. Holy Crap! Say what? Instead of the Martians coming to take over, it’s the Vamps? RUN I tell you, Run! I don’t think I have enough legs to get away from them. LOL Great excerpt!

    1. I’m glad I didn’t overload you with teasers so much that you don’t want anymore! 😀

      I hope you enjoy it if/when you get a chance to read the rest, and best of luck with the giveaway! ❤
