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!

Savage Redemption, Coming Soon

Advance review copies have gone out and now I’m waiting…waiting…waiting. Savage Redemption releases on November 6th, so if you live in the US, you will hopefully go vote, and then buy your very own copy to read! (Or buy your copy first, and then vote. Either way–I won’t be picky about your process.)

While we wait, here’s a little excerpt from the book!

She reached for him again, caressed his biceps and tugged him toward her. He lowered himself onto the mattress. All his dreams were coming true in this moment. Now that he had her in his bed, what would he do with her first?

Please her. Make her want more. Make her want to stay.

Stuff I Love: Lost Girl

lost girlIn the Facebook reader group I run with Keira Blackwood and Tori Knightwood, Paranormal Paramours, a bunch of us started talking about Lost Girl. I can’t remember how or why–it probably started with a gif that I was clueless about, which is how I often discover television shows and movies I’ve missed!

At any rate, the “hook” of the series got me right away–the heroine of the show is a succubus named Bo and she fights fae crime. Heck yes! I had to check it out.

What I love about this show is the mystery, the magic, and Kenzi. All the characters, really, but Kenzi just makes me smile.

Right now I’m nearing the end of Season 2. I’m pacing myself and watching an episode a day while I eat my lunch. It’s a lot of fun and I’m totally shipping Kenzi and Hale, and if nothing comes of that, I’ll be searching for fanfic because I reallllly want to see them together!

It’s kind of bizarre coming late to a show that everyone has already watched, when spoilers abound on the internet (yeah, I accidentally found out how the end of Season 4 goes), but it’s also a chill and stress-free way to watch a series.

How about you? Have you seen it? Is the best still yet to come for me in this series?

Halloween Between the Sheets – A Reverse Harem Anthology

Keira Blackwood and I are so thrilled to have a scene included in this anthology! The subtitle says it all: “A reverse harem anthology of scenes that get to the point.” This anthology is full of steamy pages to keep your October nice and hot. 🙂

Below is a little teaser from Keira’s and my scene:

“Everything okay?” Taylor asked, moving from my lips to my jaw and down to my neck. He licked and kissed the spot that always drove me crazy, and I tightened my legs around his waist.

Slade’s arms came around from the back, cupping my breasts underneath the loose fabric of my gown.

“Mm-hmm,” I replied, half to the question, half to the sensation. And everything was all right. We were safe, Slade, Taylor, Quentin, me, and the little lima bean in my belly. It was still hard to believe the pregnancy was real. There was a tiny dragon shifter in there. Growing, thriving.

I slid down Taylor’s body, ready to get undressed. While Taylor pulled down the sleeves of my gown, Slade pressed kisses to my bare back. The fabric of my dress pooled at my feet and I stood before them in my lacy blue thong and iridescent white heels.

Reaching down, I started inching my fingers toward the front of Slade’s kilt. His eyes fluttered shut as I tugged at the fabric. “Off,” I said.

His hands were a blur as he unfastened the kilt and let it fall to the floor.

I’d seen him naked every day for a year, but I still stared in awe each time he stripped as if it were the first glimpse. I allowed my gaze to linger, taking in every inch of muscular, tan skin, before looking over to Taylor.

His green eyes were dark with anticipation.

Their scents surrounded me, and I gladly breathed them in–hazelnut, metal, and fire.

I reached for the white faux-fur of Taylor’s red suit and unfastened the buttons, slowly starting from the top.

Slade kissed my neck as I worked to undress Taylor. His lips left a burning trail of desire on my skin, and my hands shook as I fumbled with Taylor’s buttons.

“Next year,” I murmured, breathing heavily, “next year you have to wear less clothes for your costume.”
