Synopsis:

Kori suffered a great loss, one that left her feeling so desolate and alone, that she believed nothing would ever fill the void…
The only thing that kept her going was the one little piece of joy she still had in her life, her baby boy, Rhett.
She had no choice but to move forward and give her son the best life she could. Which meant moving back home.
Except there was one problem
Home was where Reed would be…
The man who once held her heart, then shattered it into a million pieces.
Grieving the loss of Rhett’s dad, and learning to forgive those who have betrayed her, Kori was battling it all.
But will she ever have the strength to forgive Reed?

Stephanie: ★★★★

C.A. Harms took a tragic moment and turned it into a beautiful love story. I adored this book from the very beginning. There was not a moment in this book that I wasn’t moved. From the struggle and loss to the birth of something new and wonderful. I was touched and in awe of a love that was made to last a lifetime and the love that was a second chance.

Kori was on her way to the final chapter in her story. She was getting her happily every after. But tragedy struck in an instant and she was left with a brand new baby and no one to help her love him. Kori moved back to her hometown and after starting to live again, she runs into her first love. The man that betrayed her. The man that did the unthinkable and ruined everything the two of them had at one point, Reed. Kori was lucky enough to move on and begin again once.

But coming back home and seeing him was not something she was ready for. But everything changes when you leave home and then return. Reed wasn’t the same guy that he had been back then and he would give nearly anything for a second chance with the only woman he ever loved. But one drunken night so many years ago and everything changed and he lost the one woman that was his future. There is no way she is going to let him back into her heart and give him a second chance. She has been through enough already. But he wants that more than everything.

Kori needs to learn to live again and maybe event to love again and she admits that, but is Reed the one that can help her do that? Can she find a way to leave the past in the past and be able to move forward with the first great love of her life or will she continue to be haunted by the love she lost?

As I said, this book had my emotions all wrapped up within one or two pages in the beginning. It was touching and heartwarming. It was strength and hope. It was beautiful. I will say, that I was expecting so much more drama when I began this book. It started out with such a tragic moment, I was expecting it to just be so full of angst. Now, just because that is what I was expecting, does not mean I was disappointed when it wasn’t all full of the drama! This book played on my emotional side and that was pretty powerful to me and though it wasn’t what I expected, it worked so well.

I love the story, I loved the characters and I loved every tear I shed and every smile I smiled. This book was well written and full of love, passion and forgiveness. It was a truly touching look at survival and life.

Excerpt

I did my best to clean us up. Placing a stack of pancakes onto a warming plate I took them to the table and set up everything else. When everything was ready it was time for the fun.

“Hey buddy, you wanna help mommy wake up Reed?” He didn’t answer me, instead he darted off toward the bedroom. I hurried after him as he struggled to climb up onto the bed. Once he got his footing he crawled up beside him and began bouncing on his stomach.

“Up…up.” He chanted as he continued to use Reed as a human trampoline. I laughed from the foot of the bed. Reed grunted each time Rhett’s butt connected with his ribs.

He grabbed him around his little waist and rolled to the side, pinning him down. “Well look what I have here.” Reed held up his opened hand above Rhett. Making it appear as if it were a claw. “It’s the cowboy tamer and it found a tiny cowboy that needs to be whipped into shape.”

Reed began tickling Rhett’s ribs and stomach. His giggles filled the room and he wiggled from side to side. Reed’s laughter followed and I was in awe of them. They were both beautiful in that moment. Smiling, completely lost in the happiness of one another. Sometimes it was so hard to accept that this was my life. I got to experience these amazing moments and I was so blessed.

Their laughter finally slowed down as Reed crawled from bed, lifting Rhett in to his arms. “I smell pancakes.” His eyes got big and he began bouncing up and down still holding Rhett close. “Did you and mommy make me pancakes?” He asked Rhett and in return my little man smiled proudly. He nodded his head and looked my way.

“Rhett made them, I just observed.”

Reed walked toward me, kissing my forehead. “Good morning beautiful.”

STsmashwordsCoverA Summoner’s Tale by Victoria Danann

Named BEST PARANORMAL ROMANCE NOVEL of 2013, REVIEWERS’ CHOICE AWARDS, the Paranormal Romance Guild.

While the devastatingly seductive ex-vampire, Istvan Baka, is forced to relive his tragic life as human and confront his past as vampire, a very pregnant Elora Laiken faces an ultimate test of survival when she’s attacked by assassins from her dimension of origin. While their friends and mates mount respective searches and epic rescue efforts, these two friends and almost lovers, joined by a mystical bond, separated by distance, must simultaneously struggle alone through their own personal tortures in pain and darkness.

This is the story of Heaven McBride, a Black Swan demonologist who was temporarily assigned as Baka’s assistant. When he turns up missing, Heaven agrees to submit to hypnosis to help the rescue effort with possible clues about his disappearance buried in her subconscious mind. During those sessions, she proves that love can wait patiently through lifetimes for the chance to blossom and be fulfilled. She also inadvertently reveals that she’s been hiding a unique musical talent. She’s the once-in-a- generation summoner, who can call any creature with her flute. Even vampires.

 

About the Author

Victoria120x180My first book was published May of 2012.

I write cross-genre with uniquely fresh perspectives on paranormal creatures, characters, and themes. Add a dash of scifi and a flourish of fantasy to enough humor to make you laugh out loud and enough steam to make you squirm in your chair. My heroines are independent femmes with flaws and minds of their own whether they are aliens, witches, demonologists, psychics, or past life therapists. My heroes are hot and hunky, but they also have brains, character, and good manners – usually – whether they be elves, demons, berserkers, werewolves, or vampires.

My first book, My Familiar Stranger, was nominated for Best Paranormal Romance of 2012 by both Reviewers’ Choice and Readers’ Choice Awards. All of my books have opened on the Amazon Best Sellers list and earned Night Owl Reviews TOP PICK awards.

For books published in 2013, Black Swan won three awards. 1. Best Paranormal Romance Series 2. Best Paranormal Romance Novel – A SUMMONER’S TALE 3. Best Vampire~Shifter Novel – MOONLIGHT.

22232612The Nightlife San Antonio by Travis Luedke

Vampires, Mafia & Mayhem: The Nightlife San Antonio is violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy.

All she wanted was to escape the police. All he wanted was to get laid. They both got more than they bargained for.

EMT on call, Adrian Faulkner resuscitates a beautiful woman after a Mexican mafia shootout. He can’t explain why he picks her up in the hospital parking lot three days later and then ducks the San Antonio police and the Feds. Well, the hot sex might have something to do with it.

She needed to hide. With no memory of even her name, she didn’t know from who. She only knew she wasn’t safe.

Adrian soon learns she is much more than a damsel in distress, and he’s stuck with her. It isn’t long before the past she cannot remember begins to catch up with them both…

THE BOYFRIEND BOOKMARK & STEPHANIE REVIEWED THIS BOOK!WE GAVE IT ★★★★★! HERE’S STEPHANIE’S REVIEW:

Travis Luedke has managed to break every literary boundary I have set up in my life. Pushing me to read things that would have never interested me. Over a year and a half ago, I picked up my first Travis Luedke novel and it never ceases to amaze me that his books can take something I have no desire to read and turn them into must reads time and time again. I have spent more time with The Nightlife Series than any other series in my collection and this book is the perfect example of why.

Adrian is just trying to get through the motions of being a normal guy. He is an EMT, he is good at it because he doesn’t have the emotional attachment to the people he is saving. But there is something about this one that just screws with his head a little. She is beautiful… and full of holes. There is no way she could possibly survive this. But if she were to live, there are about twenty different ways Adrian would like to work that body. Whatever, she is barely alive. He just needs to get her to a hospital and get on with his day.

She wakes up in a hospital bed; she doesn’t know who she is. She has no idea what happened to her or why. There are things she knows and she has no idea why or what they mean. But she knows one thing, if they keep pumping all of this liquid into her she is never going to survive. She needs liquid, but not the clear kind they serve through tubes in the hospital. She knows she needs to eat. There is only one thing that can quench her thirst and at the first opportunity, she is going to.

Escaping from the hospital and the guards was the easy part… but now what? That’s when she sees him in the parking lot. And let it begin. Adrian wants to do the right thing. But Adrian is dark and twisted all by himself. With an extreme profile left behind from his days in the military, Adrian knows that he is not normal and forming emotional attachments is not his thing. But here she is… she needs his help. So he does what any guy would do… wait, what? Ok, so I don’t know anyone that would take her home and offer her assistance without knowing more than her name. But as it turns out he doesn’t know that either because, she doesn’t know her own name.

But it’s not just her name Adrian doesn’t know. He has no idea what is about to happen in his world. Everything is going to shift and spin out of control. Completely.

Adrian is good at the detachment, but there is something about her that he cannot separate himself from. And for her, she knows she needs him as much as he needs her. Then there’s the sex… oh the sex… Her bite, the hot sex, whew… Together these two seem to be invincible.

When pieces of her past finally become clear to the both of them, things only get more intense. Bring in the drugs, the Mexican mafia and all the power encapsulated in those two things and you just have no idea how things are going to pan out. Power, control, sex, greed, guns, violence and crime…what could possible go wrong?

I can’t relate to a single thing about these characters and for most books this would be a huge issue for me. But with The Nightlife San Antonio, all of my expectations are laid out on the table and then pushed off the edge one by one. This book is thrilling, dangerous and hot. What it is not is a book that would fall into a standardized category.

Travis Luedke takes so many genres and melds them all together into an exciting thrill ride that you can’t escape from. Just when you think things are going to calm down and finally head in one direction, the platform is swept out from under you and you find yourself free-falling into an unknown world where vampires, mafia and sex collide. What you are left with is an amazing read that cannot be put down.

This book is just another example of a novel taking the road less traveled and coming in strong at the finish. This is not a simple story line and it is not a simple romance. The Nightlife San Antonio is dark and dangerous and holy crap, what is going to happen next? It is powerful and gripping and I am pretty sure the sex couldn’t be more intense. I don’t think I will ever tire of reading books by Travis Luedke. He is on my short list of go-to authors. When he hits publish, I devour.

This is a standalone novel and does not have to be read with the other books in the Nightlife Series. But the entire set of Nightlife books is amazing… These books will pull you from everything you thought you liked in a book and set you right down in the middle of everything you didn’t know you liked, but you love!

About the Author

15781629Blood and Snow: volumes 1-8 by RaShelle Workman

Every thousand years the Vampire Queen selects a new body, always the fairest in the land, and this time she’s chosen Snow White.

Snow isn’t an ordinary girl. She doesn’t know that yet.

When Snow gets bitten by a Hunter, her life is thrown into a whirlwind of change where instead of worrying about what to eat, she has to fight not to drink the blood of fellow high school students. She becomes a revenant – not quite human, not quite vampire.

With the help of an eccentric old Professor, his seven adoptive sons, and her best friend, Snow learns to control her blood craving. Sort of. She drinks a bloodlust tea, but she’d rather drink from her Hunter.

Or, a human.

She also discovers a whole other realm, one filled with fairies, dragons, and magic. And not only does the Vampire Queen want her, but there’s a pendant called the Seal of Gabriel created for Snow by the Vampire Queen’s twin sister.And Snow’s supposed to use it to restore balance to all magical creatures. Including vampires.

Synopsis

All she needed was a job…
The last thing twenty-four year old grad student Angie Roberts needs is to worry about her new boss’s father. After all, she’s never even seen him. He remains sequestered upstairs in a house that looks like it should be the main feature in an episode of Hoarders. She had no idea the house was such a dump when she took the job. But she’s concerned about the safety and health of the old man living under such horrid conditions.

What she got was a mystery…
Despite warnings not to venture upstairs, she wanders up to the second floor. What she sees is shocking. The man she finds is a gorgeous, sexy, middle-aged man– and he’s stepping out of the shower. But something is definitely not right. Why would this wealthy, handsome man live in a house in such disrepair while his nine-teen year old son resides in a lavish penthouse? Why does he hide away from society? Why does he come to her rescue and then run away?

What she discovered was heartbreaking…
Angie learns that forty-four year old Grayson Whitmore suffers from schizophrenia. Paranoid, he retreats into his own world.

What she ended up with was a treasure…
Angie is determined to get through to him. They form a friendship that blazes into an inconceivable love fired with erotic passion. Angie must now come to Grayson’s rescue because the wicked that has been perpetrated on him is unconscionable. First, though, she must gain the trust of a man whose mind does not allow for such a thing.

Excerpt

Early Sunday morning, I crawled out of bed in search of Grayson. I discovered him upstairs in the room with the books. They were piled all around him as he scratched at something on the floor with an old shovel. The room was saturated with an early morning chill, so thick I could feel it seeping through my skin. I hugged my torso, scrubbing my palms up and down my arms. I approached him hesitantly and asked what he was doing. My heart was in my throat because I never knew what to expect with Grayson. He stopped and leaned against the handle, his cloudy gaze finding my face. He was fully dressed. He must have gotten dressed again after we’d made love earlier.

“Digging,” he acknowledged casually. “Digging a trap.”

I swallowed hard, emotion stacking like bricks in my chest. I shook my head, my mind grasping for purchase, trying to understand. “A trap for what, Grayson?”

“Danger. I have to be prepared. I have to protect us.”

I reached out a hand, trying to keep it steady. “You’re safe, Grayson.”

His gaze shifted to my proffered hand, but he didn’t move. He didn’t believe me. Fear and skepticism drew a roadmap of worry on his face. His jaw squared and he tightened his lips into a brittle line. I watched his body uncurl as he grabbed the shovel and silently started scraping at the floor again. That’s when I saw it. There was a large, jagged crater in the dusty wood that must have been covered up by the scattered books. It was directly over the small cracks I’d seen in the ceiling downstairs, the network of spider veins I’d noticed soon after starting here. I wondered how long he’d been working at this trap. I could already see exposed beams and fluffy insulation. If he kept this up, eventually he’d put a hole right through the wood floor.

“Go back to bed, Angie.”

“I’m not going anywhere. I’m staying with you, Grayson,” I said sternly, plopping myself down on the floor next to him.

He stopped again and stared at me, his blue eyes almost cobalt in the gray dawn. His hair was a loose mane framing his face, giving him an unruly look. “You’ll be tired. You haven’t gotten much sleep.”
I squeezed my eyes shut, hurting, thinking of the reason I’d been up most of the night. We’d held each other, made exquisite love, bathed in a temporary utopia where I could pretend he was okay.

But Grayson wasn’t okay, and as I spent more time with him, I realized the extent of his fractured thoughts. My Grayson was funny and brilliant. My Grayson was tender and passionate. My Grayson could melt my heart with the tiniest smile. But this man, too, was my Grayson, a man who was sometimes out of touch with reality, who lived in the distorted world concocted by his brain. It was a world of doubt, fear, and distrust.

Excerpt

I’d never given much thought to falling in love. For someone like me, it seemed an impossibility. Why dwell on something that would never happen? I had no interest in chicks for more than what they could give me in one night. Fuck ‘em and then show ‘em the door. There were always clinger groupies, who claimed to love me. But they loved what I could offer them. Sex. A one-night stand. A story to tell their friends about how they slept with a rocker. With Grant McDermott. I was a name. A symbol.

About Underneath it All:

If I had known I’d have a hot architect balls deep inside of me before the end of the weekend, I’d have made time for a pedicure.

Lauren

It’s all the little things—the action plans, the long-kept promises—that started falling apart when my life slipped into controlled chaos.

After I met Matthew Walsh.

I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to run screaming or rip his pants off, and most days I wanted a little of both. If I was being honest with myself, it was rip his pants off, ride him like a workhorse, and then run screaming.

Matthew

A rebellious streak ran through Lauren Halsted. It was fierce and unrelentingly beautiful, and woven through too many good girl layers to count, and she wasn’t letting anyone tell her what to do.

Unless, of course, she was naked.

She wasn’t looking for me and I sure as shit wasn’t looking for her, but we found each other anyway and now we were locked in a battle of wills, waiting for the other to blink.

Sometimes the universe conspires to bring people together. Other times, it throws people down a flight of stairs and leaves them in a bruised and bloodied heap.

 Stephanie: ★★★★★

I loved this book! The storyline had me giggling and falling in love. The characters were unique and adventurous. I wasn’t expecting to give this book a lot of thought when I started it, but the more I read the more I adored it. The characters, their story, their family and their lives were all right on the mark with a great read.

She was a teacher looking to start a new school. She had everything going on her side. She worked countless hours trying to fit all of the pieces together and she didn’t give up. She was determined and relentless. But when Lauren meets with an architect to help her through the process, something shifts inside her. She has no idea what she is doing. She needs to focus on this school and walk away. But there is just something about Matthew that she is drawn to. She knows it can be nothing more than one-night of amazing sex. It seems though each time she is near him, she wants him more and more. Pushing him away is her only option…

Matthew has other plans. He doesn’t want her to push away. From the moment he set eyes on her at that mess of a church that she was not the norm. She was the exception to all of his dating rules. She wasn’t athletic, she wasn’t built like all of the women he dated. She was this cute little thing that he just wanted to touch. Yes, he saw her game plan when it came to him, but he was going to be relentless in his pursuit. He knew what he wanted, though he too tried to talk himself out of it. He knew there was something about this teacher that was just a bit on the wild side and once he had a taste, he was hooked.

She can be a naughty school teacher if she lets herself enjoy the ride long enough and he can be the strength that she needs to get through the journey. But is Lauren sacrificing too much by getting involved?

And then moment together, and the pretty much do… but it is with the help of those siblings that Matthew finds balance between work and Lauren. He knows what he wants, but can he convince her of what she wants before she runs for good?

This book was full of life and spirit and a few crazy adventures, But Matthew and Lauren’s story is amazing! I loved the vibe in this book. It wasn’t over the top on the dramatics of love and it wasn’t too soft of the passion. I loved the characters and their story of turning a factory into an education. Both characters learned so much about themselves in the process too.

The secondary characters were amazing as well, except for the dad… he I could have done without. But the brothers and sisters were great fun to have about. They all knew where their strengths and weaknesses were and together they all thrived. This book is well written and a great story!there is his family. Siblings so close they seem to spend every waking moment together, and the pretty much do… but it is with the help of those siblings that Matthew finds balance between work and Lauren. He knows what he wants, but can he convince her of what she wants before she runs for good?

Excerpt

Tipsy. I was definitely tipsy.

Tequila was to blame for the current state of blissfully inebriated affairs, such as they were. His tie sat crisply folded beside his beer bottle, green with small pink shapes, and the collar of his white shirt gaped open. And I wanted to taste him right there.

It was late, the bar nearly empty, and far, far past the proper end for a normal business meeting, but this stopped being a business meeting when we walked through the door.

None of my other first dates—or fourths, for that matter—involved hole-in-the-wall bars or innuendo-laced discussions of architecture. They never involved Matthew Walsh either. This was all rather peculiar, much like that fun, buzzy feeling in my body. He smiled at me, a smug, knowing expression that told me he was watching my inhibitions evaporate by the minute.

“If you hadn’t come out with me? What would you be doing tonight?”

“I’m not winning at work-life balance these days,” I said with a grimace. “I’d probably be working on a few overdue projects.”

Matthew held up his palm and I stared at it for an embarrassingly long time before meeting his high five. His fingers laced with mine, and for a moment, I could only gape at the way they layered together. He was touching me and I liked it, and somewhere in my head I knew this was strange. I wasn’t into boys right now. I mean, I wasn’t into girls, either, but I wasn’t doing the whole boys and dates and worry about whether I shaved my legs thing.

“Balance is overrated.”

I laughed. “Yeah? And what would you be doing? If you didn’t maneuver me into drinking with you all night, that is.”

“Maneuver? That’s strong.”

He rubbed his thumb against my palm, and I bit down on my lip to prevent the tipsy giggles from leaking out.

It was just a thumb circling a palm, and it shouldn’t have been especially delightful, but if confronted with a choice between this and calorie-free cupcakes, I saw no contest. I liked this, and I didn’t want it to stop. 

About Kate Canterbary

Kate doesn’t have it all figured out, but this is what she knows for sure: spicy-ass salsa and tequila solve most problems, living on the ocean–Pacific or Atlantic–is the closest place to perfection, and writing smart, smutty stories is a better than any amount of chocolate. She started out reporting for an indie arts and entertainment newspaper back when people still read newspapers, and she has been writing and surreptitiously interviewing people—be careful sitting down next to her on an airplane—ever since. Kate lives on the water in Rhode Island with Mr. Canterbary and the Little Baby Canterbary, and when she isn’t writing sexy architects, she’s scheduling her days around the region’s best food trucks.

Q&A with Kate

What made you write this book?

The Walsh Series originated from a project I was consulting on last year. An educational organization was attempting to get the legislature to revise regulatory guidance around repurposing Industrial Revolution-era mills and factories for schools, and I met an incredible team of architects in the process. They were some of the most brilliant, complex individuals I’d ever encountered, and they were ridiculously adorable, too.

At the time, I was also running into brick walls with my work-in-progress. I took a vacation from that manuscript and started imagining a family of brilliant, adorable architects, and within a few days, Patrick, Matthew, Shannon, Riley, Sam, and Erin were born.

Do either of your characters relate you to or someone close to you?

One of my beta readers is also very close to me, and she suggests that touches of me and others in my world show up in my characters, but none of my characters are based on anyone else.

In fact, I’ve tried that and failed – my characters have a mind of their own, and pushing them to conform to preexisting models of speech, behavior, or motivation doesn’t work well for me.

What can we expect from your book that’s so different from other authors out there?”

Architects are a rare breed, and the Walshes take it one step further by dedicating themselves the worlds of sustainability and historic preservation. They’re creative and instinctual, and know something about expertly tailored suits and husky growls, and the genre hasn’t introduced us to many of their kind.

Beyond the focus on architecture is my desire to write people that we think we know, but we have no idea. Andy and Lauren are great examples of characters we think we know – their types – but when we peel it all back, we realize we didn’t know them as well as we thought.

What is your writing process like?

My brain is a little funky. I’m quite talented with action plans and project management, but I hate forcing myself into those parameters.

I can outline a book, but I’ll start writing and promptly deviate from the outline. After fighting all of my instincts, I stopped with the structures and apps and rules, and just let the words flow. It exists in a chaotic ecosystem in my head, and I’m praying the dementia doesn’t set in too soon.

Craig

 

“You were up early,” the most beautifully sleepy voice exclaimed from behind me.

Turning on my stool at the island in the middle of the kitchen, I looked over into the seductive hazel eyes of my Pingu, my penguin, my soul mate. She looked sexy as hell. Her hair was all dishevelled from sleep, her short nightdress and robe were crumpled and she had that innocent, just woken up expression. She was so beautiful and I thanked my lucky stars every day that fate had pushed us together.

“I couldn’t sleep,” I murmured, shrugging like it was no big deal.

“Because of me,” she stated, and started nibbling on her bottom lip. “Craig, I’m sorry.”

“Baby, come here.” I opened my arms to invite her in.

As she stepped between my thighs, I placed my palms on either side of her face, and angled her head to look into my eyes. “You have nothing to be sorry for okay? I won’t pretend that what you told me last night doesn’t hurt like hell, because it does. But I understand why you feel that way. I am going to prove to you every day that I’m here for the long haul, though…as your husband.” Before she had a chance to retort I pulled her lips to mine, drawing her into mind obliterating passion so that all she could think of was us and how good we were together.

My hands strayed from her cheeks, and made their way down, across every glorious curve of her delectable body. I would never tire of this, of her. Fate had its hand in bringing us together to this point, and I sure as hell planned to continue along this path set for us. I just needed to help Amber over the little bump sitting in front of her. I hoped then it would all be smooth sailing.

Desired (True Alpha 1)

“I thought this wasn’t a good idea,” she said, breathless, hoping he wasn’t suddenly changing his mind.

“I’m tired of trying to resist you.”

 

Guarded (True Alpha 2)

”But no more sex?” she asked. His arms locked up again.

“No.”

“How about kissing?” she asked lightly.

He cocked his head to one side. “This isn’t a negotiation.”

“No kissing then,” she said. “What about fondling? Over or under clothes? How about straight-up groping?”

He gritted his teeth. “Mia,” he growled through them.

“I’m just saying…” She pushed in her chair. “If I accidentally brush up against you in the elevator, don’t be surprised if some part of your body gets squeezed.”

 

Hunted (True Alpha 3)

“I know your name, Mia.” His voice was commanding, yet smooth, like smoke curling over a steel blade. “It means MINE, and that’s exactly what I want to make you. Her entire body heated with those words. The snarling of her wolf reduced to a whimper. He’d barely spoken to her, but he was already claiming her with his words. Something Lucas had consistently refused to do, ever since he knew what she was. Colin, on the other hand, knew exactly what she was and wanted her badly enough to march in and demand it. It reached inside her and touched a deep need. One even her wolf couldn’t muster a complaint against.”

 

Captured (True Alpha 4)

“From the moment she came into his life, she’d had that effect: making him feel things that had been long dead. Challenging him to be a better wolf. A better man. Maybe, with her by his side, he could reclaim the other things he’d lost. The other parts of himself. Maybe he could actually be a true alpha again.”

 

Sacrificed (True Alpha 5)

“His heart was breaking, not only because Mace was claiming the girl he loved, but because of her incredible bravery in attempting to spare all their lives. He knew she was strong, but to selflessly try to save them… when by all rights, they should be saving her.”

 

Claimed (True Alpha 6)

“From the moment you came into my life, you challenged me to be better. A better man. A better wolf. A true alpha, not some broken excuse for…” He paused, his throat thick. She seemed distressed by what he was saying. “Lucas, you’re a good man.” “I’m a better man with you.”
