Stomp VS Romp: Stompin’ with the Wolves by Cynthia Garner

Stomp VS Romp hosted by Rabid Reads & The Book Nympho

Werewolves, that is. In a world where paranormal creatures live side by side with humans, it’s always a good idea to know what you’re getting into if you decide to date someone outside your species. Vampires, shapeshifters, demons, fey. They all have their pros and cons, right? Today I’d like to discuss what dating a werewolf would be like.

Now I think we can all figure out the horrific downside. What if you’re out on a date with a werewolf and he gets hungry? You could end up not only being treated to dinner but get eaten as dinner. (Or… just eaten, which is something for a Romp post, I suppose!)

I have werewolves sprinkled throughout my Warriors of the Rift series, including Tori Joseph, the heroine of SECRET OF THE WOLF. Werewolves are primal, passionate, and ready for action in the bedroom just about any time. But, since this is the Stomp side of Stomp vs. Romp, let’s talk about exactly what you could expect, if you dated a werewolf, when it comes to action outside the bedroom.

First of all, werewolves are fast, strong, and have a sense of smell that can act as an advanced warning system. So you’ll have plenty of time to either get prepared or get out of the way. If fight is chosen over flight (and with a werewolf, let’s face it, fight usually wins out), you have pure muscle and wild instinct on your team.

Second, if there’s a concern about hiding a body… well, let’s just say that dead men in wolves’ bellies tell no tales and leave it at that.

Werewolves don’t cat around—they mate for life. A werewolf will protect his mate with his life. “Until death do us part” means exactly that to them. And after your werewolf is triumphant in battle, there’s a little stompin’ to be done in the bedroom.

What’s not to love about a werewolf in action?

Author Bio

My interest in writing got an early start when my sixth grade teacher told us to complete the following sentence: “It was a dark and stormy night…” With that my love of all things paranormal was born.

I didn’t start writing with an eye toward publication until 1999. I had a few short stories win some contests and get published in now defunct publications. A move to Arizona in 2000 and a new job put my writing on hold. In early 2005 I couldn’t keep the stories inside any longer, and made the decision to focus on a writing career, beginning with electronic publishers. Under the pen name Sherrill Quinn, I signed my first contract in September 2005, and my first novella was published in March 2006. In 2009 the first of three Kensington Brava books was released.

Kiss of the Vampire

Once a generation, the rift between the paranormal world and the human world opens, allowing supernatural entities to cross. Vampire, demon, or shapeshifter, they can save the world-or send it spiraling into chaos.

Half-demon, half-human, Nix de la Fuente is accepted by neither and mistrusted by both. Determined to prove she’s more human than not, she devotes herself to solving crimes between the world’s mortals and its most unsavory undead. But her latest case brings her face to face with the one vampire she could never resist…

Called in to investigate a string of violent murders, special agent Tobias Caine isn’t interested in rekindling his relationship with Nix. Yet one look and the vampire knows his need for her is as strong as ever. Once, their all-consuming passion nearly cost Nix her fragile hold on her humanity. Now, as their hunger for one another intensifies, exposing them to an unimaginable danger, it could cost them both their lives.

Once a generation, the rift between the paranormal world and the human world opens, allowing supernatural entities to cross. Vampire, demon, or shapeshifter, they can save the world-or send it spiraling into chaos.

As a werewolf liaison to the Council of Preternaturals, Tori Joseph is used to straddling the world between humans and immortals. She plays by the rules and always delivers justice, no matter the cost. But after a string of increasingly brutal attacks results in humans turning into werewolves, Tori doesn’t reveal her horrifying suspicion: Someone very close to her might be responsible.

Investigating the paranormal violence, no-nonsense detective Dante MacMillan believes Tori is hiding something. His search for the truth draws him into greater danger as he gets closer to the dark realm of the immortals-and to the sexy werewolf who stirs his primal lust. Now with evil closing in around them, Dante must convince Tori to trust him . . . before her deadly secret destroys them both.
