Spotlight On: Unveiling the alpha werewolf! Meet Hugh from Robin Bielman’s Veiled Target…
Please help me welcome author Robin Bielman as she introduces us to the hero of her latest novel, Veiled Target!
PS – for any readers who are already familiar with Robin’s New Adult and sweet romances in the Entangled Secret Wishes (see our reviews for #1 and #2 in that series here!) and Indulgence lines, her new Veilers series is definitely high-octane adult-content romance with open-door love scenes! I really enjoyed Veiled Target and am looking forward to seeing what happens next in this new series…
Hello GraveTells readers! I’m so excited to be back here to celebrate my paranormal debut, Veiled Target. Huge thanks to DaVinciKittie for always making me feel welcome!
Today I thought I’d share the scoop on my hero, Hugh Langston. I had so much fun writing the total alpha male. He’s a warrior, a leader, the man every woman wants and the guy always in control. Well, until he meets a certain kick-ass eliminator named Tess whose assignment is to kill him.
- Height: 6’2’’
- Hair: Brown and usually tousled since he only runs his fingers through it
- Eyes: Blue and commanding
- Home: Los Angeles
- Profession: Rescue helicopter pilot and leader of the Night Runners, a rare breed of wolfen half-shifters.
- Car: A Range Rover, but he prefers his Ducati 248 Superbike
- Favorite Food: Pot roast with potatoes and carrots, but he’s just as happy to grab a burger. Add whatever’s on tap and he’s good to go.
- Beach or mountains? Mountains
- Distinguishing feature: He’s got a tattoo of the Zodiac sign for Cancer over is heart in honor of his deceased brother.
- Special Skills: Hugh is half wolfen, half Sentient, so he’s got super-human strength, a keen sense of hearing – yes he can hear that whisper of breath you just took – and the unique ability to sense and perceive human feelings, particularly fear.
- Hobby: Fly his LSA—light sport aircraft—over the Pacific Ocean and snow capped mountains in the same day.
- Favorite body part on the opposite sex: Hugh’s a leg man, but he’s pretty much a goner with all of Tess’s parts.
- Favorite position: The one that makes Tess scream his name the loudest.
About Veiled Target
Tracking down Veilers—non humans—is only a sideline for Tess Damon. Vengeance for her fiancé’s murder is her reason for living. But with two botched jobs on her record, if she fails to eliminate her next mark, she’s dead. She’s not afraid to die, but not before she gets even. Too bad fate has a really bad sense of humor.
Hugh Langston, a wolfen half shifter, lives to keep both humans and his pack safe. But when rogue humans kidnap his apprentice, his rescue mission is compromised by a hot-as-hell, kick-ass woman who makes him think only one thing: mine.
Tess tries to ignore her feelings, but temptation trips her up. Especially when Hugh figures out he’s her next target and forces her into an inconvenient alliance that tests all the laws against their attraction.
Now, with the line between good and evil getting blurrier by the minute, it becomes clear Tess’s only hope of living to see another day—and finding a murderer—lies with the one man she’s supposed to kill.
Read an excerpt
“Cut the crap, Tess. Why were you following me?”
“How do you know I was following you?” Oops. She meant to say, “What makes you think I was following you?”
He gave a knowing smile—that looked ridiculously sexy rather than irritating. “I know you don’t want to insult my intelligence so let’s just say for argument’s sake, if you were following me, why would that be?”
At least she’d gotten him to change his tone.
“Truthfully?” She leaned a little closer to him. She couldn’t help it.
“That would be nice.”
“I’m really not a very nice person,” she announced.
“Neither am I.” He reached out and moved a strand of hair behind her ear.
Was he trying to confuse her? Because it was working. She’d nearly fallen into his hand before he pulled it away. He was indeed a very bad man.
“That’s good. I hate nice guys. So where does that leave us?”
“I haven’t got all night, Tess.” He lowered his chin, indicating—she presumed—he was growing tired of their banter.
She lifted an eyebrow. “No? That’s too bad. I’m a night owl. I can—”
“Answer my question before I haul you to your car over my shoulder.” His tone sent a little zing of pleasure right to the tips of her breasts.
“As if you could—” She was over his shoulder in one second flat. He moved swiftly, quietly and with superhuman strength. Uh oh.
