#NewRelease by Sandra Cox: Mateo’s Blood Brother #pnr

Ciao, amici! Today I’m so excited to welcome Sandra Cox to the blog. It’s her first time here promoting a new release, and I couldn’t be happier that she’s stopped by. She’s going to share a bit about the book, a bit about a character, and a bit about herself. Please help me make her feel at home.

Behind the amicable façade is a man who’s tough and determined.
He’s Mateo’s Blood Brother.

Available at Amazon.


They were friends, close as brothers. Then they weren’t.

Mateo and Jesse are cautiously working their way back to friendship when Jesse discovers the unthinkable. Delilah, the sultry shifter who’d had affairs with both men, is still alive. The tumble she took over a mountain ridge—a fall that nearly killed Mateo—should have finished her.

Now, there’s no choice but for the two men to work together to take down a she-devil straight from hell.  As the stakes escalate and the hunt becomes more intense, another wolf appears on the scene. Always where Jesse’s at. Always when he’s in trouble.  Jesse is divided between ending Delilah, a new love interest, discovering the identity of a certain brown wolf and staying alive.


Kill her. Kill her. Kill her.

The words pounded in Jesse’s head, in time with the drums and electric guitar that reverberated through the pine-walled enclosure of the Blue Coyote where tribal memorabilia fought for space with local brewery signs and a large mirror gleamed behind a counter damp with beer rings.

He leaned back in a scarred wooden booth, took a gulp of the cold, gold brew sitting in front of him and briefly closed his eyes as it rolled down his throat, ignoring the thumping in his brain. Taking a life was abhorrent to him, especially if that life was a former lover. One he’d hoped to have a future with.

How had he not seen her true nature?

He shook his head. The answer simple. He’d been blinded by the sex. Layla, or Delilah as Mateo knew her by, was the most sensual creature he’d ever known. How much of it was truly her and how much was due to her supernatural powers, he had no idea.

And what difference did it make? Evil was evil.

Bottom line, he had to find a way to end her before she killed one of his people. She’d nearly taken out Mateo and tried to end Rose and Blair. Mateo was bad enough but Jesse took particular exception to Layla going after the two women. They’d done her no harm. Rose and Blair were just a way to get to Mateo, who’d had the temerity to break up with her, toss her out of the county and tell her never to come back. Well, she’d come back and she meant business.

He’d gone up against bad before but never a shapeshifter and never one who needed taken out by means the law wouldn’t countenance. He believed in the law and did his best to uphold it. But in this instance, his people were more important. He couldn’t, wouldn’t, let Layla hurt anyone else.

Blair—Mateo’s fiancée:

Jesse and Blair both like to catch the Full Moon Band, that plays hard rock with a native twist, on Wednesday nights at the Blue Coyote.

Blair loves to sing, but unfortunately can’t carry a tune. She sings anyway.

Blair loves her rusty truck Beulah, which most of her acquaintances consider a bucket of bolts.

About Sandra:

Sandra writes All Things Western, is a vegetarian, animal lover and avid gardener. She lives with her husband, their dog and cats in sunny North Carolina.

You can find her at:





She spent a number of years in the Midwest chasing down good Southern BBQ. By the time she moved to North Carolina where Southern BBQ is practically a staple, she’d become a vegetarian.

Pineapple is a must-have on pizza, along with black olives and onions.

She loves pumpkin waffles. Pumpkin cream cheese, not so much.

    • I’m having trouble with WP. It’s not notifying me of anything now. Not even of posts I write or comments I receive on them. Sorry if I missed something you said.

      The baby is growing like a weed. She’s not quite four months but is wearing 12, 18, and even 24 month clothes (probably depends on the manufacturer; there’s no consistency) and drinking 8 oz per feeding. She sleeps through the night and plays hard most of the day. LOVES the books I bought her. Her mom and I think the doctor might recommend food at her four-month checkup (as formula is so hard to come by and she’s clearly got the appetite). Long story short, she’s perfect. Healthy, happy… the light of my life. Thanks for asking!


    • Thanks so much, Miriam. I agree about the excerpt.

      You, Sandra, and my son-in-law should get together for pineapple pizza. He loves pineapple on pizza. Although he likes his with meat (pepperoni, surprisingly, not ham), and I know Sandra wouldn’t want that.


  1. How great to see Sandra here promoting her latest release. She always tells a good tale, and Mateo’s Blood Brother sounds like another winner. I did get a chuckle out of the BBQ reference and then becoming a vegetarian. Gotta love irony, LOL.

    Thanks for sharing, Staci and all the best to Sandra!
