Bonus Scene for Savage Redemption, “What He Left Behind”

Honestly, I don’t know exactly which book this is from–whether goes best with Savage Redemption, or whether it goes with whatever Doug’s book will be called. The point-of-view character is Doug, Ben’s brother, and it’s a little heart-wrenching and I wasn’t even sure what was going to happen until I wrote it. Some might also view it as a cliffhanger, which wasn’t my intent. So be warned! Doug’s book is likely months away, as I’m working on another series right now.

Bonus Scene!

Okay, now that I’ve done everything in my power to convince you not to download the scene “What He Left Behind,” here it is! ❤

Savage Redemption, starring:

Ben Channing

  • Hates: vampires, surprises
  • Likes: his truck, burritos

Delilah Jones

  • Hates: negativity, lies
  • Loves: her baby girl, tacos

I had the absolute best time writing about a brooding, regretful hero and a optimistic, down-on-her-luck heroine who come together and make things work. I hope you enjoy it! (Psst: Get it soon, because the price will go up.)

Soundtrack for Savage Redemption

This soundtrack is a little different from soundtracks from my other books, because the hero in Savage Redemption, Ben, loves punk music. Because I used to listen to a little bit of punk (shout out to my high school BFF, Brian, who introduced me to it), I thought it might be fun to put together a list of punk songs that would work with Ben and Delilah’s story.

You can find the soundtrack on YouTube, except for the original version of “Past Mistakes.” There wasn’t a good recording of it, so I found an acoustic tribute which doesn’t have quite the same energy. Maybe you can hunt down the original 88 Fingers Louie recording on whatever music apps the kids are using these days. 🙂

CP6 soundtrack

  • The Offspring, “Gone Away”
  • The Bouncing Souls, “Cracked”
  • Five across the eyes, “Past Mistakes” (a tribute to 88 Fingers Louie)
  • Lagwagon, “Violins”
  • The Vandals, “Don’t Stop Me Now” (funny video)

B.A.D. Authors Share their Favorite Heroes

As you may or may not know, my upcoming book, Savage Redemption, is a part of the multi-author Bad Alpha Dads series. With all of these fantastic BAD books in the line-up, I wanted to learn a little more about them, so a few of the authors shared their favorite heroes with me. Now you can get a jump on this fantastic grouping of BAD books while you wait for Savage Redemption to come out!

Bad Alpha Dad paranormal romance shapeshifter book covers

Tonya Brooks – Pussy Whipped

When jaguar shifter Jerrett ‘Jett’ Black puts his cub in the deep freezer to contain him, you know he’s a really bad dad. He may be clueless when it comes to taking care of a baby, but his genuine desire to be a good father shines through. Once the cub worms his way into Jett’s heart, he realizes that raising Justis to be a good man, father and alpha might be the most important thing he’ll ever do. Though at the moment he’s more interested in teaching him not to pee on the priceless oriental rug!

Tami Lund – Dragon His Heels

Gabriel Wilde – he’s a reluctant leader, a reluctant dad, and he’s *really* reluctant to find his mate. And yet, despite all this, he does what he needs to, and when the going gets tough, he’s a real standup hero. The perfect leader, an awesome dad, and a heart-melting mate.

McKayla Schutt – Maple’s Strong Alpha

Raymand would put it best: “I’m great because I’m a strong alpha wolf who protects my pack no matter what. *Shrugs* What can I say, I’m a freaking badass.”

Kristen Strassel – Silver Fox

Landon Fox is the quarterback of the Alaska Bloodhounds. This fox shifter built his legendary career by leading his teammates to victory . He’s got no interest in being involved in the reality show The Real Werewives of Alaska, until his first love crashes the show. Landon shows Jenna he can still play as hard in the bedroom as he does on the field.

C.E. Black – Makeshift Mate

Locke Winfield is a great hero because even though he can be a little clueless and a total ALPHA male sometimes, deep down he’s kind and respectful. I love him for that.

Bad Alpha Dads – More to Come!

I hope you enjoyed this peek into the Bad Alpha Dad world! I’ll be back next week with the glimpse at the Savage Redemption playlist and a little more about the book. In case you haven’t seen it yet, I wrote a free prequel story called “Irredeemable,” and it’s available right now on Apple Books!
