Today, I’ve got another exclusive excerpt for you! I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
In only a few moments, Quincy got the keys, signed them in, and handed one of the keycards over to Miles. “We’ll find the other two, go up, and figure things out when we’re settled.”
Chad had finally found the garage apparently, and Jamie waited for them by the door. A couple of minutes later, Chad joined them. “I’m not exactly a fan of New York yet,” Chad said, shaking his head.
Quincy laughed. “There’s a reason I like Pittsburgh. New York’s too big. Here.” He handed keys over, then led them to the elevator. He noticed Jamie fidget a few times and wondered about it until he leaned in and whispered to Chad.
“I really don’t belong here.”
It just went to show how uncomfortable Jamie was, if he spoke out loud—even in a whisper—instead of communicating telepathically to his mate. Quincy turned around and sniffed, then answered before Chad could speak. “You absolutely do. Do you know why?”
Jamie blinked at him, cheeks red. “Uh… why?”
“Because anyone belongs at the Plaza who wants to be at the Plaza. People come from all over to see this place. You’re a registered guest just like anyone else. It doesn’t matter one bit who’s paying for it. I’d bet half my biggest bank account a large number of people who stay here don’t pay for it themselves either.”
Jamie stared at him for another moment. “Kind of hard to argue with that.”
Chad snickered. “I’m going to have to remember that.”
Jamie elbowed him, scowling.
Chad winced. “Sorry, baby.” He kissed Jamie’s temple.
“Uh-huh.” Jamie shook his head but took a breath and looked a bit better. “Thanks, Q.”
Quincy waved it off as they stepped out of the elevator. “Let’s just get settled. Six hours on the road drives me nuts.”
He couldn’t resist watching them walk around the suite, looking at everything. He’d stayed there a few times himself, so he’d already seen the classical furnishings and decor.
Once the bellhop had delivered their luggage, left, and they’d sorted it out, Quincy went straight for the wet bar. He started with the Chivas, then moved on to the Grey Goose. Miles watched in amusement, and Quincy sniffed, ignoring the expression on his mate’s face, then finished the Grey Goose and tossed the empty bottle in the garbage. “Six hours cooped up with three dogs.”
Miles threw his head back and laughed. “I can see that prompting a wet bar raid.” He chuckled and pulled Quincy close. “Sorry we’re so onerous.”
Quincy rolled his eyes. “Okay. Two dogs and a wolf.”
“I heard that!” Chad called from his and Jamie’s bedroom.
Quincy laughed, feeling a lot better all of a sudden. He had friends with him, friends who were more than capable of watching his back, helping him, and who wanted to be there because they liked him, not because they had to be. He was still getting used to the idea that he wasn’t alone.
Thanks so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed it. Thanks again to Charlie for giving me some time here.

Dr. Miles Grant acknowledges that his destined mate could be either gender even though his bisexuality cost him his family and his pack. Luckily he found the Forbes Pack, who happily accept him just as he is. What he never counted on was finding his mate in Pittsburgh or for his mate to be another species entirely—a cat!
Quincy Archer isn’t just any jaguar shifter. He is the heir to the leadership of his pride. Destined mates are nothing but legend to the nearly extinct and generally solitary jaguars, and Quincy certainly never expected to find one for himself, much less a male… or a wolf.
However, finding each other and coming to terms with their species is the least of their worries. Quincy is expected to select a proper female mate, father a cub, and take his place as heir to the pride. Except Quincy refuses, having no interest in women or leadership and knowing he isn’t right for it. But his father will stop at nothing—not even attempting to kill Miles—to get his way. Quincy and Miles must overcome many obstacles to stay together as the destined mates they’re meant to be.

A gypsy in her own right, Grace has lived all over the United States. She has currently set up camp in East Texas with her husband and children – both the human and furry kind.
As one of those rare creatures who loves research, Grace can get lost for hours on the internet, reading up on any number of strange and different topics. She can also be found writing fanfiction, reading fantasy, crime, suspense, romance and other erotica or even dabbling in art.
