Unwritten Meme + Review + Giveaway: A Whisper On A Scream by Cree Walker

Cree Walker is over the moon in being able to announce that one of her bestselling books, Whisper On A Scream is now available in paperback format.

The werewolves are dying. Years of war between the Born werewolves and bitten, along with a lack of healthy bloodlines, has taken its toll on the race and if something isn’t done soon they will all be gone within the next fifty years. They are a strong breed, but have one major weakness that will probably end them all. 

Werewolves – like their natural counterpart the wolves – breed for life; and if there is no mate, there is no life. A prolonged separation between mates can kill them more efficiently than any bullet ever could.

The Council are playing with fire when they use this very weakness against Sugar Lubec, the Born daughter of two bitten parents, to carry the offspring of Alpha Jack Coon. He is the leader of the largest werewolf pack in North America.

Ending the war between the two groups is the only thing that can save the werewolves and bring Jack and Sugar together. Can they do it before they end up paying the ultimate price for their long separation? Or will that price be the only thing that can end the war?

Jack's Dream by Cree Walker

                Eventually I had to stop fighting sleep and my eyes slipped closed. Being alone, living without a pack, without distractions and without Jack my mind always seemed to wonder back to him but I knew if I gave in and found my way back, one or both of us would pay the price.
                A heavy weight dipped the corner of the bed and my tired eyes fought to open. I peered into the dimly lit room to see the shape of a man sitting on the corner of my bed and looking over at me. He smelled of leather and forest.
                “Hey, Sugar Baby.”
                An overwhelming need to have him surged through me and I sat up fully awake and more than a little naked.
                His eyes glittered as they took in every inch of the bare skin he could see. “Sugar,” His voice growled out a warning but when had I ever listened to him in the past? 
                I inched forward until I was on my hands and knees beside him, I reached up with one hand and touched his face, he leaned into my touch and closed his eyes.
                I took the opening to straddle his lap, twisting the fabric of his tee-shirt in my small fists before he gently tried to push me away.
                “Sugar…” His voice sounded pained as if he were begging me to be the stronger of the two of us but I was done being strong.
                I leaned into his throat and took a deep breath of his scent. The intensity of his trace made my mouth water and I sank my teeth into his neck and wiggled in his lap.
                In response he snarled and flipped me onto my back, ripping his shirt over his head with one hand and unbuckling his belt with the other. He pushed into me with an angry snarl pinning my hands over my head and covering my surprised gasp with a bruising kiss. I offered my throat to him, an ultimate show of trust between wolves and his pace quickened. The muscles in his neck strained as if he was torn between killing me or fucking me until I couldn’t walk.
                “Jack,” I begged and he slammed into me and buried his head in my throat. My hands twisted in the sheets above my head and my back arched with the power of the orgasm. He stayed there on top of me gasping for breath as our blood slowly cooled.
                My eyes opened to the dark room. I was alone but my body still pulsed with the memory of the dream. “Jack?”
                Jack Coon lay awake in his bed thousands of miles away. She’d called him in her dreams unknowingly before but this last one had his heart thundering in his chest, it had almost been enough to kill him but he couldn’t forget how she’d offered him her throat as well as her body.

There was a lot going on in this story and the occasional arbitrary scene would disrupt the overall flow. Those rough patches are the reason this didn’t receive 4 stars. I enjoyed the overall story – it has a great mix of paranormal elements, strong characters, vivid descriptions, and a fascinating concept. The author shows great promise and I am looking forward to the sequel, Willing Sacrifice.
