Lindy Zart's UNREMARKABLE Cover Reveal!




Unremarkable (Anything But #2)

SYNOPSIS: 
Thrust into a reality that should be myth, Honor does what she has to do to survive. Some things are easy to say goodbye to. Others things, like her very being, are not so easy to let go of. And when she does, what then? What will she become?

As Honor fights to survive and to remain unaltered when everything around her, including her, has been, she is met with adversaries and champions. Ryder, Christian, Nealon—they all have a goal. Only Honor doesn’t know if their goals coincide with hers, or Superior August’s and the UDK society.

One thing she does know: the world isn’t big enough for all of them.





AUTHOR BIO: 
I've been writing since I was a wee lass. I was reading before that; possibly while still in the womb. Don't think about that too much.

I started out with short horror stories and poetry. I was terrible at it. The poems not so much, but the stories were awful.

I decided to finish a book (and I DO mean finish--I'd started plenty throughout the years) when I was in my mid-twenties (so not that long ago because I'm young and will forever stay that way). Again, not my best work.

But that's the thing about writing; it improves with time. (It's also a good thing to know your work can't possibly be any worse than it was when you first started.)


What I love most about writing is having people tell me how much they enjoy my work; how my writing touches them; makes them feel intensely.

Bringing a reader to laughter or tears is a wonderful feeling for a writer, and no, I'm not sadistic. *insert evil laugh HERE* It means I got them to feel, to respond to something I created.

Also, I just like to make stuff up and put it down on paper. I have an endless supply of stories in my head; lots of stuff to share with the world.

Happy Reading!

Samantha doesn't want to be a witch, yet that's exactly what she is. After failing to elicit her magic, she escapes to the mountains in an attempt to resume a semblance of her previous human life. When an arsonist torches her cabin, Samantha's worst fears are realized. Aware that her life is on the line, she reluctantly agrees to return to New Orleans with Luca.

Determined to mete out justice, he rescues a beautiful witness who may be the key to helping him find the perpetrators.

Dr. Kalli Williams, dedicated veterinarian, is hiding a secret that endangers not only her own life but the lives of wolves across the country. After being tortured by a savage vampire, she's reluctantly agrees to help the sexy Alpha in his quest to identify suspects; ones who'd kill her on the spot if they knew she existed. As Kalli places herself in the hands of the dominant wolf, she soon finds she wants nothing more than to submit.

Tristan, committed to ruling his pack as a lone wolf, is inexplicably drawn to the mysterious and enticing woman, who seems more than human, but not quite supernatural. As he discovers her secret, he teaches her the meaning of trust, helping her learn how to be true to her nature. After living a lifetime alone, will he succumb to the visceral need to claim her, acknowledging the soul binding connection between an Alpha and his mate? And will he prevail against the menacing enemy who threatens to destroy Lyceum Wolves?

Guess what the lovely Kym sent? EXCERPTS!!!! SQUEEEEEEE!!!

Excerpt 1



Wynter barely saw him coming. Logan leapt across the room, and as his body touched hers, she gasped. His hands pressed hard against the glass on either side of her head. The masculine scent of him wafted into her nose and she fought the instinct to rub her face against his chest. Oh God, what had she done? How could she be so stupid as to challenge an Alpha? She really must be sick. Unable to speak, she held still. Initially charged with fear,

she realized very quickly that he wasn’t hurting her. The tension

between them escalated with every minute of silence that passed.

And then she felt him, his nose grazing along the side of her neck.

A small moan escaped her lips.



At the challenge, Logan strode across the room, pinning her against the wall. He had to smell her, taste her. Why would she deny her wolf? Why play games? Logan didn’t want to hurt her. Oh no. If anything, he’d like to give her pleasure like she’d never known. But she kept insisting she was human. If she wanted to play, play he would. She was wolf, and he’d prove it to her. But as her sweet scent engulfed his senses, he began to lose control. His wolf clawed at his psyche, begging to take the woman. Like freshly cut roses, the heavenly aroma was familiar yet altogether unique and desirable, although her wolf lingered on the edge; she was there, he could scent her.

In an effort to prevent himself from ravishing her right there in his office, Logan plastered his hands so hard against the window, he thought it’d crack. At the sound of her moan, he darted his tongue out against her silky skin. He had to taste her. Just once. Ah fuck, no; his wolf wanted more. Eyes feral, he locked them with hers, taking her arm. He placed a small kiss to her palm before dragging his tongue along her wrist all the way to the crook of her elbow, releasing a growl of satisfaction.

Wynter’s heart pounded as he gently took her arm into his hands. She shivered as he pushed up her sleeve and brought her delicate wrist to his lips. Wet with arousal, she couldn’t break their connection as she stared deep into his mesmerizing eyes. Oh my God. Wolf. Human. I’ll be whatever you want me to be…just please, just take me. Wynter thought her knees would give out, except he had her pressed up against the window. Lost in his spell, she responded by nudging her own hips against his hard arousal as he tasted her skin.

Logan groaned as the territorial need to take her consumed him. He needed to get things under control. Jax. Fucking, goddamned Jax. His name alone should have killed his raging hard on, but it wasn’t helping one damn bit. No, he needed to separate himself from her before he tore her clothes off. He closed his eyes and blew out a breath, but didn’t release her.

“Wolf,” he breathed into her hair.



Excerpt 2


Logan quietly padded out of the house.  While he prided himself on knowing how to move stealthily in the most dangerous of situations, he hoped she’d scent him right away.  Yet Wynter seemed oblivious to his movement.  It seemed strange that she didn’t even notice him.  Most wolves would have immediately reacted.  He slowly waded into the water, never taking his eyes off of her.  He could hear from her heartbeat that she wasn’t quite sleeping; day dreaming perhaps?  Time to wake his little wolf.  
Wynter startled at the sound of a splash.  She quickly pushed up onto her elbows and scanned the area but didn’t see anyone.  Just as she was about to recline, she caught sight of the most glorious vision she’d ever seen.  Oh. My. God.  Logan.  Before her eyes, his six foot five, tanned, muscular body rose from the water like a dripping hot Greek God.  Stunned and captivated, she watched as the beads of water rolled off his smooth skin.  Unable to control the impulse, her eyes roamed over his wet body from his broad muscular shoulders to the hard ridges of his abdomen.  The very smallest dusting of hair trailed down into the water, where she was quite certain she’d find him naked.
Logan laughed out loud at her reaction, snapping her attention back to his face.  He shook his shaggy hair and water sprayed all over her legs.  She flinched slightly but didn’t look away.  He was simply the most magnificent male she’d ever seen.  Immediately, she pulled her legs together, as desire rushed to her belly.  She didn’t need an expert to tell her the shark in the water was hungry.  She knew he was dangerous, ravenous for his next meal.  And oh how she wanted to be bitten. At a loss for words, she returned his smile, waiting for him to speak.
Logan watched her take in the sight of him and tried so very hard to ignore the signs of her arousal.  He found it amusing the way she tightened her thighs together in an effort to remain composed.  Ah yes, little wolf, the Alpha knows what you want, but will you give it to me?  Let’s see where this takes us.  Smiling, he approached slowly and smoothly, making her wonder what he’d do next.  
He enjoyed keeping her on her toes.  And now that she’d had time to relax, to be lulled into a false sense of security, he intended to take advantage.  As his cock jerked, he wondered, though, who was going to take advantage of who.   


 

Excerpt 3

“Odd vampire, isn’t he?” Wynter noted.
   “That he is.  My gut tells me he abides by some code of honor, but don’t ever mistake him for anything but what he is,” Logan warned.
“A monster?”
Logan smiled.  “Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster.”
She laughed. “Another quote?”
   “Friedrich Nietzsche,” Logan confirmed.  He took her hands in his. “We have a few hours before it’s time to leave.  I know I should be encouraging you to go relax, take a nap or something sensible like that.”
   “Relax, huh?  How ‘bout a bubble bath?  Or a massage?”  She winked and dragged her finger down his chest. 
   “A bath sounds good to me as long as I’m in there with you.”  Logan pulled her flush to him, burying his head in her neck and growled. “You drive me crazy, do you know that?  I can’t keep my hands off you.”
   Wynter giggled, growing aroused, loving the feel of his warm lips on her skin.  She looked over to the table and gave him a sexy smile.  “My Alpha,” she began seductively.  “You know, I just noticed that this is a really nice table.  Sturdy.  Long.  Hard.”
My Alpha?  Logan’s cock thickened at her words.  The table isn’t the only hard thing in this room, baby.  He glanced to its wooden top then back to her with a smile.  
“African mahogany.  A friend custom made it for me.  You like?”
   “Oh I like.  I mean, it looks very functional.  I bet we could get a lot of work done at this table,” she mused with a wink. Meeting his eyes, she gave him a suggestive smile and cocked her eyebrow. She slid her hand down between his legs and cupped his hard arousal.  “You know, I always wondered what it would be like to be a secretary.  I’ve been looking around here, and it seems you’re in need of some assistance.”
Logan hissed, closing his eyes.  Holy shit, that felt amazing.
“How about I fill in for your secretary today?” she asked. “I’m very good at dictation, sir.” Wynter had never in her life been so forward.  But after making love to Logan, she craved him more than ever.  As though she were addicted to a drug, she needed more.  The warmth between her legs grew painful.  Feeling flirtatious and horny, she didn’t think it would take very long to entice him into her fantasy. 
Logan eyed Wynter, hardly believing he could be so lucky.  His naughty little wolf wanted a romp in the office?  Seriously?  His brain said ‘no way’, but his burgeoning erection said, ‘hell yes’.  He’d have to be careful not to get carried away.  His wolf wanted this woman in the worst way, sought to claim her.
“Sweetheart, I don’t think you know what you’re askin’.  My wolf, he’s restless.”  He gently nipped at her collarbone, as if to give her fair warning.  If he took her, it was going to be rough and hard.  
“But I do…I know exactly what I’m agreeing to.”  Wynter leaned into Logan and placed a kiss to his chin then dragged her tongue along his bottom lip and kissed him.  
“Do you now?”  Logan grabbed a fistful of her hair, gently pulling her head backwards.  Revealing her neck, he licked at the hollow until she gasped.
