Blog Tour: Acceptance by Grace R. Duncan

Hello! And welcome back to the Acceptance blog tour. First off, thanks so much to Tempeste for letting me post today. It’s much appreciated!

Back at my stop on Drops of Ink, I talk about the time between the Patience epilogue, when Quincy and Miles first talk, and the beginning of Acceptance. Well, there’s roughly two months between the two and during that time, Miles and Quincy exchange a few emails, texts, etc. with each other in an attempt to get to know each other. At the aforementioned Drops of Ink, you can find a text conversation between them. Today, I’m sharing an email chain I thought you might enjoy.

I hate subject lines.

These will have to be limited. I’m still…not home. Text is the best for now, but I can send a few. Where were we?

Re: I hate subject lines.

I understand. Replies may be delayed, if I have an emergency. So, you were telling me something I didn’t know about you. Favorite food? Mine’s pot roast.

Sleep. Occasionally put on a fur coat and run around the forest. You?

LOL! (That’s happening a lot with you. It’s weird.) I draw and collect info for people. You have to do something else.

Why don’t you want to say? Not as much as I might like. Been to a few places with my father when I was young but not much since.

Re: Re: Re: Re: I hate subject lines.

I won’t laugh. Half the manga I read has romance in it. I do graphic design for my job. But I like to draw characters and people. Did the wolves have a lot of destined mates?

Sorry that took so long.

No. Well, it’s getting more common now that we know there are human mates. Still unusual, though. What brought you to Pittsburgh?

My original pack thought it best if I got a fresh start. Somewhere – anywhere – else. Denver recommended here since they’re accepting.

Blurb:

Dr. Miles Grant acknowledges that his destined mate could be either gender even though his bisexuality cost him his family and his pack. Luckily he found the Forbes Pack, who happily accept him just as he is. What he never counted on was finding his mate in Pittsburgh or for his mate to be another species entirely—a cat!

Quincy Archer isn’t just any jaguar shifter. He is the heir to the leadership of his pride. Destined mates are nothing but legend to the nearly extinct and generally solitary jaguars, and Quincy certainly never expected to find one for himself, much less a male… or a wolf.

However, finding each other and coming to terms with their species is the least of their worries. Quincy is expected to select a proper female mate, father a cub, and take his place as heir to the pride. Except Quincy refuses, having no interest in women or leadership and knowing he isn’t right for it. But his father will stop at nothing—not even attempting to kill Miles—to get his way. Quincy and Miles must overcome many obstacles to stay together as the destined mates they’re meant to be.

About Grace

Grace Duncan grew up with a wild imagination. She told stories from an early age – many grace_nohateof which got her into trouble. Eventually, she learned to channel that imagination into less troublesome areas, including fanfiction, which is what has led her to writing male/male erotica.

A gypsy in her own right, Grace has lived all over the United States. She has currently set up camp in East Texas with her husband and children – both the human and furry kind.

As one of those rare creatures who loves research, Grace can get lost for hours on the internet, reading up on any number of strange and different topics. She can also be found writing fanfiction, reading fantasy, crime, suspense, romance and other erotica or even dabbling in art.
