THIRDS Series

Action. Humor. Romance.

THIRDS exists to uphold the law for Humans and Therians without prejudice.

During the Vietnam War, biological warfare spread the Melanoe virus, infecting millions worldwide and changing the course of human history forever. The vaccine, Eppione.8, created using strains from animals immune to the virus, activated a dormant mutation within the virus that altered human DNA and gave birth to a new species: Therians.

In an attempt to restore social order, the US government put new regulations and laws into place, along with a Therian branch of government. In 1990, Human and Therian legislators launched the Therian Human Intelligence, Recon, Defense Squadron aka the THIRDS, an elite, military-funded agency comprised of an equal number of Human and Therian agents.

But THIRDS agents are more than a team—they’re a family through thick and thin, and along the way, some find true love. While every day brings dangers and challenges, one thing will never change: standing up for what you believe in and protecting the people you love is never optional.

ABOUT

THIRDS Team Leader Sebastian Hobbs and Chief Medical Examiner Hudson Colbourn are as much in love now as they were nearly seven years ago when a tragic event on the job destroyed their relationship. The two drift together only to be pulled apart time and time again. When Hudson draws the interest of dangerous enemies, both within and outside the organization, Seb wants nothing more than to protect the man who still means everything to him.

As life-and-death events, an uncertain future, and startling truths draw Hudson and Seb to each other yet again, they must make a choice: trust their love and take strength from what they share, or lose what matters most… for good this time.

THIRDS Thursday Special Event Giveaway - Have a character named after you!

Hello, THIRDS Nerds! Welcome back to THIRDS Thursday! Next week we start a special three part flash fiction story, but this week, we have a super special giveaway to kick things off. In honor of Cael throwing Dex's bachelor party, we have a fabulous giveaway. One lucky winner will have a character named after them in Dex's bachelor party novella! Your character will interact with Dex, Destructive Delta, and their friends during a night of Daley shenanigans.

What do you have to do to enter? Just answer the following question in the comments below: What stuffed toy scared Cael to tears when he was little? Hint: It was given to him by Tony one Christmas.

Giveaway is open internationally, and ends Friday, May 12th at 9 PM (Eastern US time). Winner will be chosen at random and announced on Saturday, May 13th here on the blog. Winner will be contacted, and I will ask you which name you would like me to name the character after. 

Teaser

Sloane turned to the only two who could possibly keep this evening progressing without incident. As soon as Cael had sent out the invites to Dex’s bachelor party, Sloane had contacted Seb and Ash, and asked them to prepare.

“All right. What contingency plans have you two put in place should any Threat Level Fuchsia scenarios arise?”

Seb and Ash glanced at each other before turning their gazes back to Sloane. Their expressions didn’t bode well. Seb spoke up first.

“When you said prepare for tonight, I thought you meant make sure your boyfriend doesn’t get so drunk he strips down to his underwear and starts dancing on the bar, or try to keep him out of jail. I didn’t realize you meant put together an emergency tactical strategy.”

Sloane pinched the bridge of his nose. “Okay.” He looked up at Ash. “What about you?”

“Relax, bro. We got this.”

Sloane narrowed his eyes and leaned into Ash, sniffing him. “Have you already started drinking?”

Seb snickered, his laugh turning into a cough when Ash arched an eyebrow at him.

“No, smartass. I can handle your dorky fiancé.”

Seb didn’t even attempt not laughing. “You are so delusional, Keeler. We’re toast.”


THIRDS Thursday Special Event Giveaway Winner! *UPDATED*

Hello, all! Thank you so much for joining in the THIRDS Thursday Special Event Giveaway for a chance to have a character named after you in the next THIRDS story! If you didn't win this time around, don't worry, we have plenty fun giveaways still to come.

The question was: What stuffed toy scared Cael to tears when he was little?

 **UPDATED**

The lovely Manuela informed me that the Hint to the question was misquoted, and she's absolutely right! Although the question was correct, and the My Pet Monster answers everyone gave were also correct, the Hint should have read: It was given by Tony to Dex on his sixth birthday. These boys and their toys. Thank you Manuela for finding that!

And the winner is:

Khadijah James!

Khadijah, I'll be in contact regarding your win!

Thank you again all so much for joining in the fun, and for all your awesome support of these fellas!

Shenanigans and Updates

Hello, all! I've been deep in my writing cave for the last few weeks finishing up the final book in the North Pole City Tales series, plus working on edits, writing, and several other things. I figured it was time for an update. At the moment I'm working on the last book in the main THIRDS series, book 10, which I'm super excited about. We're sending these fellas off into their new series with a bang! Plus I'm super excited about an awesome event we're cooking up for this book, so stay tuned for that.

Gummy Bears & Grenades (Dex's bachelor party novella) has been contracted by Dreamspinner Press, and it's just entered the editing stage. It's due for release in October in eBook, and that's when we plan to release the Thick & Thin | Gummy Bears & Grenades paperback combo, for all the folks who were waiting for Thick & Thin on paperback.

Like I said, Gummy Bears & Grenades is the bachelor party. It takes place between books 9 and 10. There's some interesting developments, but you do not need to read it in order to understand book 10. It's a fun little side story filled with shenanigans, romance, sexy-times, and a few new revealing truths. Also there's a giant bear costume and grenades involved.

The final book in the North Pole City Tales series, book 6, has been contracted by Dreamspinner Press. This is Dasher and the King of Frost. There's also a plan to release a paperback combo. More on that soon.

As some of you may know, I'll be attending GRL this year. I'm super excited to be seeing everyone again. More on my GRL plans soon.

Here's the tentative release schedule (subject to change). This is providing everything goes according to schedule and I can get the final THIRDS book completed by its deadline.

Aug - The Foxling Soldati (Soldati Hearts, Book 2) Sept - Finding Mr. Wrong (Dreamspun Desires) Oct - Gummy Bears & Grenades (Thick & Thin | Gummy Bears & Grenades paperback) Nov - THIRDS Book 10 Dec - North Pole City Tales Book 6

I think that'sit for now, but with all these upcoming releases there will be all kinds of fun events happening, so be sure to check back to find out what shenanigans we have in store!


THIRDS Thursday - 6/1/17 Gummy Bears & Grenades Excerpt

Hello, all! For today's THIRDS Thursday I'm sharing an excerpt from Gummy Bears & Grenades, which is Dex's bachelor party. This fun little novella has been contracted by Dreamspinner Press and is due for release in October, along with the paperback combo of Thick & Thin for those who've been waiting on Thick & Thin to be released in paperback. Enjoy!

EXCERPT

“Let’s go dance!” Hudson said, pulling Dex back toward the club. Everyone agreed and headed back toward the nightclub when Dex spotted something big, orange, and furry. He let out a huge gasp.

“Hudson, look!”

For some reason, Hudson looked up. With a snort, Dex took hold of his chin and moved his head down so he’d look straight ahead. Either Dex was so drunk he was seeing things, or what he was seeing was really there.

“Dude, is that…?”

Hudson’s eyes went huge. “Oh, no. Dexter, no.”

“Oh yes, Dexter, yes.” Dex clapped his hands gleefully before walking over to whoever it was dressed in a giant orange gummy bear suit handing out flyers. “Can I try on your bear?”

The bear turned to face him and shook its head.

“Please, man. It’s my bachelor party. I’m getting married soon. Please.”

Another shake. Somewhere behind Dex, Seb groaned. “Come on, Dex.”

Dex ignored Seb. “Fine. We’ll do this the hard way.” He pulled his badge out of his inner coat pocket and stuck it in the bear’s face. “Sir, I’m afraid I’m going to have to commandeer your bear.”

“What?” The guy growled.

“You heard me. I’m commandeering your bear. Let’s go.”

“Lobito, what are you doing?” Seb shook his head at Hudson who was running his hand over the bear’s arm.

“It’s so soft. Touch it.”

Seb stared at him. “I’m not doing that.”

“Come on, Sebastian. Touch it.”

“You all are fucking nuts, man.” The guy turned to Hudson. “Is he serious?”

Hudson laughed. “Him? Serious? Never.” His smile fell away. “Except now. He’s deadly serious now.” Hudson poked Dex’s cheek. “This is his serious face. May I touch your nose?”

“You all need to get lost,” bear-suit guy said. “Now.”

Hudson went to touch the bear-suit guy’s nose, and got his hand smacked away. Hudson blinked up at him, his sad puppy eyes all wide and hurt. “You hit me? Why? I just wanted to touch your nose.”

Dex cringed. He shook his head at bear-suit guy. “Ooh, you shouldn’t have done that.”

Seb got all up in the guy’s face. He was growly, scary, and bigger than bear-suit guy. “Did you just hit my husband?”

The guy threw his fuzzy paws up. “I’m sorry! Your friend can take the suit. I’m sorry.” He quickly popped the head off and handed it to Dex before patting his shoulder. “There’s a zipper back there.”

Dex gave the bear head to Hudson, and unzipped the suit. The guy quickly scrambled out.

“They’re not paying me enough for this bullshit. Bunch of crazies. I don’t know why everyone wants this stupid bear.” The second he was out, he took off, leaving a trail of bright orange flyers in his wake. Hudson frowned after him. He shook his head and tsked.

“What a litterbug.”

Dex laughed as he pulled on the bear suit. “I am going to scare the shit out of Ash. Someone zip me up.”

“I can’t believe we’re doing this,” Seb grumbled, taking the bear head Hudson handed to him so he could help Dex zipper up. Soon as he was, he nodded to Seb.

“Bear me, bro.”

“You’re out of your damn mind,” Seb said, plopping the head over Dex’s.

“Ouch. Why do you have to be so rough?”

“Because he likes it rough,” Hudson purred, running a finger down Seb’s arm. “Don’t you, darling? I love how naughty you are.”

Seb’s face looked like he was about to spontaneously combust, making Dex laugh.
