Ringing in the New Year with Jess Buffett!

Jess Buffett was born and raised in New South Wales, Australia. She married her high school sweetheart and they live on the Central Coast with their two children. Jess is a hopeless romantic who loves stories about true love with a happy ending—which is probably a good thing given what she writes. She is a huge fan of M/M and M/F romance—anything with hunky men in all their glory, whether they be shifters, vampires, cowboys, or the boy next door. Jess is a firm believer in soul mates, happily-ever-afters, and love at first sight, but that sometimes people need a second or a third meeting for the brain to catch up.

Jordan’s Purrfect Mate
Hunter Clan 5

Colton River’s was born in captivity. Living within the walls of Potestas, he has lived with a terrible guilt for years, and after what is left of his family turns against him, he turns to the only safe harbour he knows - technology.

Jordan Foster has watched the people he cares most about find their mates, wondering when it would be his chance. So you can imagine his shock when he discovers his mate is none other than the arrogant little smartarse who has been causing him a world of trouble in their online war against Potestas.

Now, two opposing sides with the same goal - to take down Potestas once and for all - must come together, not just for their sake, but for the paranormal community. Can Jordan see past the attitude and snark, to the vulnerable mate beneath? And can Colton trust that Jordan won’t abandon him like everyone else has?

Out in the bedroom, he found Jordan standing in the doorway, a deep frown on his face.

Apparently not long. Jeez, I haven’t even said anything yet.

When Jordan didn’t say anything, Colton hesitantly asked, “What? Did something happen?”

Jordan shook his head as he continued to stare at him. “Why did you put those back on?”

Huh? Colton looked down at the borrowed clothes he was wearing, then back up at his mate.

“Um, because I didn’t want to walk around naked?” It came out as more of a question than an answer, but he really wasn’t sure what the problem was, or what the right answer would be.

His mate mumbled something that even with his advanced hearing he had trouble hearing. “What was that?”

“I said, I would have given you some of my things to wear,” Jordan huffed out, folding his arms over his chest.

Colton wanted to laugh, but knew it wouldn’t be wise. Lord save him from alpha men!

Jordan was clearly disgruntled with him wearing another man’s clothes, especially one he had just gone head-to-head with. Colton hadn’t thought of that when he had slipped back into the clothing. Though it did wonders for his ego. After weeks of thinking not even his mate wanted him, it did his heart good to know the Wolf was jealous.

Walking over to his mate, with a little extra sway in his step, Colton grinned. “You have no need to worry. Micah and I aren’t like that, never have been.”

Now directly in front of his mate, Colton shored up his courage and placed his hands on Jordan’s chest. Sliding them up until he was able to link them around Jordan’s neck, he gave a little tug, bringing their lips together. His breath hitched, and his heart sped up in anticipation. Apart from their kiss when they met face-to-face, they hadn’t shared another.

The feel of Jordan’s plush, full lips against his made him sigh. His Wolf didn’t hesitate to move in, his tongue delving into the hot crevices of his mouth. Colton moaned when Jordan clutched him to his chest. As Jordan continued to devour him, Colton shivered at the feel of his mate’s cock pressing into his stomach.

Unfortunately breathing became necessary and Colton whimpered at the loss of his mate’s lips, only to rejoice when they returned, trailing down his throat. Colton tilted his head to the side, giving his mate more room to work. It was also a sign of submission, letting Jordan know he wanted anything Jordan would give.

Fuck, he wanted his mate!

Jordan lifted his head and something fierce and primal flashed in his eyes. The next thing Colton knew he was on his back covered by his mate’s hard, hot body. Colton drew in a shaky breath when Jordan pushed at his thighs, spreading them wide. Jordan settled in between them and he groaned as their cocks rubbed together.

Colton scraped his nails down Jordan’s back, loving the feel of his mate’s body arching against his. Rutting together, he held tighter, enjoying the feel of his mate’s body against his.

Suddenly Jordan sat back and began tearing at Colton’s clothing. Well, actually it was Micah’s, and his friend was going to be pissed. When Jordan’s teeth clamped down on his nipple Colton cried out, no longer caring as he allowed Jordan to finish stripping him.

Jordan brought their lips back together and Colton didn’t hesitate. He pressed his tongue at Jordan’s lips until he opened. He drank in his mate’s taste and felt light-headed. Never had a kiss been more perfect. Not that he had a lot of practice, but everything he had ever experienced felt like a dud compared to being with his mate.

With hands groping and fingers rushing, they got Jordan out of his clothes as well. Jordan pulled away, crawling over to the side of the bed. He reached into his side drawer and pulled a tube of lube from it. Colton watched as his mate crawled closer to him like a predator stalking its prey. Colton didn’t think it was possible for someone to look so animalistic, but at that moment Jordan was more animal than man. His cat perked up, purring inside, desperate to submit.

Jordan’s body had hard muscles corded around his torso that travelled up his nicely tanned arms and down his firm legs. He was everything Colton wasn’t but he didn’t mind. He liked the way his porcelain skin stood out against Jordan’s more tanned colouring.

Colton dropped his gaze to admire the smooth chest above him. Jordan’s nipples had hardened and Colton couldn’t help but reach out and run a fingernail over one pebbled peak. Jordan sucked in a sharp breath and he smiled, watching his mate’s body go taut.

Someone likes that.

He did it again to the other one. With a low growl Jordan knocked his hand away and settled back between Colton’s thighs. Bringing his feet up to rest on the bed, Colton let his knees fall open, exposing his hole more for his mate. The kissing and touching was great and all, but Colton wanted, no needed, more.

“Make me yours,” Colton said in between kisses.


Blog Post
2013 has been an unbelievable year for me. Becoming a published author, meeting new people and making a ton of friends, I hope 2014 has more of the same. 2014 is going to be the year that I know what I’m doing, what I want, and have the confidence to get it. My goals are to bring out even more books, finally be able to go on those family holidays…and maybe try to start early on my Christmas shopping. Lol. July should be a good time to start.

I know I should probably consider making a slightly more sensible resolution that involves less chocolate and/or caffeine intake…but I’m not into masochism. ;)

Today is my first release for the year, with plenty more to come, so I hope you all have a fabulous year ahead. Can’t wait to see what this year brings!

Behind the Scenes

Ø What inspired you to write your first book?
I love paranormal mm romance, so I knew the first book I wrote would be about two sexy men, falling in love…who also happened to shift into animals. Lol And after seeing a few pictures from artist D.W. Skinner with model MJ, I knew I had my twins Sawyer and Riley for my Hunter Clan series.

Ø How did you come up with the title?
The Kayan’s Mage acme from the term Kayan, an old Turkic title for leader, and Mage given one of the characters is a Mage.

Ø Is there a message in your novel that you hope readers walk away with?
Absolutely. Small isn’t weaker. That’s a big thing with me.

Ø What are your current projects?
I’m releasing Hunter Clan 5 today – Jordan’s Purrfect Mate, and I’m working steadily on a few new series, including the first book in the spin-off series The Vaucluse Coven.

Ø Which actor/actress would you like to see playing the lead character from your most recent book?
I’d love to see Matt Lanter (90210 & Star-Crossed) play Hunter Bailey in my An Archangel’s Promise. That would be awesome.

Ø What books are you reading at present?
As I’m writing this, I have just finished reading Zayne Michaels Ghostwriter.

Ø Do you think that the cover plays an important part in the buying process?
Absolutely. A cover can either draw a person in, or repel them instantly.
Ø What would you say are the main advantages and disadvantages of self-publishing against being published or the other way around?

Flash Round

What is your most cherished possession?
I have a pendant that was originally one of my dad’s cuff links. They were gold with a silver horse on them. He was given them on his twenty first and only wore them on special occasions. The last time he wore them was on my wedding day. After he passed, my mum had it made into a pendant for me to always carry with me.

How do you feel about being the center of attention?
Hate it. LOL I freeze up when everyone looks at me.

What makes you blush?
Just about anything actually. LOL. Which is hilarious given what I write.

Do you have any irrational fears or phobias?
Heights and inclosed spaces. I cannot handle them.

How deeply does your job / social role define you as a person?
I think I’m more defined as a mum than an author or cover artist. I’m always Brandon’s mum or Aliyah’s mum.
