Marcus inhaled appreciatively as he eventually made it to the top of the steps. He loved Aden’s pack house. The upstairs floor was Aden’s and his mates’ living quarters. He was incredibly lucky to be here, and one of the only humans who had been trusted to live with werewolves. Not just any werewolves, thought Marcus with a grin at his own joke. Blaze, Conner, and Darric were the Supreme Alpha triad who had been blessed by the goddess Sirius when they were born over seven hundred years ago. Marcus grinned to himself — didn’t that just roll off the tongue! It was one of those things that even when he’d seen it with his own eyes — first with his buddy in the army, and then here — it was still a truly fucking incredible thing. Werewolves. Thinking of every film in the movies, none of them came even close to how amazing it was, and how goddam lucky he was to be here.
It had only been because of his dad’s friend, Bud Mason, that he’d gotten this gig in the first place. Marcus was a newly washed up Marine with two bum legs. Career finished. Then Bud — Senator Mason — had called him. He knew Marcus was aware of werewolves. Marcus and his unit had been out on patrol, eyes on a swivel as always, but it had been quiet for days. Craig was scouting up front where he liked to be and a sniper had taken him out first.
Marcus had thought he was done for, until the most incredible thing Marcus had ever seen happened in front of his eyes. Craig shifted into a wolf as he lay on the ground.
Marcus had kept his cool, and even though the firefight grew up in earnest, and had pulled Craig to safety. Craig had later explained everything — how werewolves were known about by the government, but not in the main by the general public; that he had shifted because when injured it’s a natural thing for wolf shifters to heal themselves. Marcus had been enthralled. Unfortunately, Craig had been sent home by panicked generals who didn’t realize it wasn’t Craig’s training so much as his incredibly strong shifter sense of smell that was locating the landmines and keeping their asses safe.
The next day after Craig had gone, their Humvee rolled straight over one. Three Marines lost their lives and Marcus lost his legs. The left one above the knee and the right below.
A few of the wolves glanced up smiling as Marcus limped into the café area at the front of the pack house. Friendly guys, and girls. Lilly greeted him. “Morning, Alpha.”
Marcus had wanted to die of embarrassment when she’d first called him that. Apart from the obvious fact he was a human, he was pretty sure it was against some wolf protocol or something. In fact, Ricoh was standing with Aden one of the first times last year when Lilly had called him that, and he’d seen the shock on Ricoh’s face.
Aden though had explained Lilly meant it as a mark of respect as Marcus had ended up being one of their biggest supporters, and Blaze certainly didn’t mind. Marcus supposed if it didn’t offend their Supreme Alpha, he didn’t need to get all bent out of shape about it.

 Today we're very lucky to be interviewing Victoria Sue author of The Promise

Hi, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about your current book.
Hi, thank you for having me. The Promise is the fourth book in the Sirius Wolves series. This book is the first to feature a human, Marcus, who is a combat vet and a bilateral amputee. Marcus was one of the few humans that knew about werewolves before all the world found out about them in book two. He is now the official Human Liaison Officer to the pack, and is struggling to believe how lucky he is to have what he considers a dream job.
He is also struggling personally to understand how any werewolf with all their apparent physical perfection could be attracted to him. His last douche-bag of a boyfriend left him because he couldn’t cope with being with a “cripple.”
Marcus expects the werewolves to view their mates in the same narrow terms that humans do. He’s in for a surprise.

1) Do you use your real name or a pen name?
A pen name but only because I genuinely thought I was supposed to have one when I started writing! My pen name is just my two first names switched.

2) Tell us the story behind your cover.
The background to the covers for all this series are the same. My talented cover artist – 3 rusted spoons – actually copied a picture of Orion’s belt taken by the Hubble telescope. Obviously the wolf’s head you can just see wasn’t part of the original picture! The story behind the book was that the Egyptian goddess Sirius created werewolves in her own image to help the planet Earth. The other gods were angry at her interference and banished her to the night sky as a star (the Dog Star)
Legends also tell that the human race are the descendants of Sirius and Orion.
My series features the gods and goddesses and their purpose for the wolves.

3) Name your four most important food groups.
Coffee, wine, chocolate…there’s a fourth??

Meet the author:
Victoria Sue has loved books for as long as she can remember. Books were always what pocket money went on and what usually Father Christmas brought. When she ran out of her kids' adventure stories, she would go raid her mom's. By the age of eight she was devouring classics like Little Women, and fell in love with love stories.
She especially loves writing gay romance because as far as she’s concerned the only thing better than one hot guy, is two of them.
