Blog Tour & Giveaway ~ Wet Heat by R.D. Hero





Hello! I'm R.D. Hero, the author of Wet Heat, a book about werewolf menopause, nefarious alphas, and party-boy omegas. I'd like to thank the blogs hosting this tour. Follow along to read more about the world and characters of Wet Heat!  


About Wet Heat

Most omega werewolves want a mate and pups, but Lee Aung prefers an unconventional party-boy lifestyle. Yet at forty-two, he’s stopped going into heat, which means he’s expired goods—no longer a fertile, young omega that alpha wolves drool over. So Lee uses Wet Heat, a synthetic pheromone, to reel in the alpha hookups.

After losing his job at the bank, Lee can’t afford to keep up his Wet Heat habit. His solution: scam free samples by pretending to be a happily mated test subject at Wet Heat headquarters. There, Lee spends two years being interviewed by the reserved alpha scientist, Cain, who at thirty-two is unmated and—up until this point—content with that.

Cain never really felt his alpha instincts, nor took part in the usual alpha/beta/omega social dynamics. But after discovering that Lee has been lying about his unmated status for two years, Cain finally admits that for the first time, he wants to court an omega. Unfortunately, he’s picked the one omega who doesn’t want to be courted.

I thought this was a short, cute read.
I really liked the idea behind wet heat, a werewolf pheromone enhancement for wolves who no longer go into heat. It is supposed to be used to spice of mated pairs love life. But, for our hero, it is used to help him score at clubs.

Lee is in his 40's and unmated. He doesn't want that life, to settle down, so he finds a way to score what is called Wet Heat. One of the many ways he receives Wet Heat is by doing a clinical study. He has been doing this study for a few years now and has the same scientist study him.

Having just lost a job and it seems that all these alphas look down upon him for not being mated or wanting to, makes it very hard for him to find a new job. I really like how the author used a lot of pack mentality or politics in the story. The way Lee has been studying alphas and omegas for so long, he knows how to play into their needs. He observes their moods andactions and plays them all to his advantage. Until he figures out who his blind date is ((that his mother MADE him go on)).
It is none other than Cain, the scientist who does the clinical trials over at Wet Heat. Lee isn't sure what to do with him at first as he seems like a reluctant alpha. This was really Cain's saving grace with Lee. Lee kind of thought it was a breath of fresh air, and it was a little ego boost that he was the one to bring out these instincts in Cain.

Unfortunately for Cain, you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but thankfully he seems to be a pretty patient man in breaking down Lee into courting him, seeing as he's waited two years for him, what's a little game of cat and mouse. Since Lee likes to dance to his own beat, it also warrants some aggression from someone, thinking that he is a bad influence on his nephew. It gives the story a good plot twist and some drama, making you wonder who is really the bad guy.


I thought that it was cute at the end when Cain would show up to break up whatever Lee was about to get into, it's only a matter of time before he finally drops his fears and gives in to Cain.

What i didn't like was, the story was a bit unfinished as to what happens with Lee and his job and apartment. Where is he now staying, that kind of thing.  It also seemed kind of fast ((even thought its really been two years)) that Cain would want to step in and take total care of him, but I guess that's just his Alpha coming out for once.


All in all I give it a 3.5*

Synopsis A bounty hunter’s partners to lovers’ story. The hunt is on… and he’s the prey.

Bradford (Ford) King was sure he had the rest of his life mapped out. Though he was no longer a SEAL Lieutenant, his brother was home safe and he had a job that still allowed him to satisfy his hunger for hunting bad guys. Life was simple, no distractions or complications – at age forty-six – that’s all Ford wanted. What hedidn’twant was his work partner, sniper/watchman, Dana, giving him s**t all the time.
