Alphas are trouble

So poor Monster Girl (who is definitely NOT an alpha) survived the fireworks last night. I had a plate of angel food cake on my desk and, rather than go hide in the basement, she decided it was worth risking a flaming phosphorescent demise if there was a chance she might get a piece of cake.

I think most of us feel that way, no?

Today, I’m at Books Make Me Happy, talking about how alpha males take control if you let them. Come leave a comment for a chance to win a pair of “Alpha’s Heart” Swarovski dangle earrings.


I’m gearing up for some guest posts and giveaways with the release of MATED BY MOONLIGHT next week. If you don’t want to miss any of the fun, be sure to subscribe to my newsletter where I’ll be doing an extra giveaway of my Swarovski dangle “Alpha’s Heart” earrings.

The red bi-cone dangles are almost the exact same color as my raspberries! I’d give away some of my berries too, but I’m thinking they wouldn’t like being stuck in an envelope. So here’s a pretty picture instead:

A Little Night Muse by Jessa Slade

Jessa Slade

Convicted of treason, Adelyn has been banished to the sunlit realm of humans—a fate worse than death for a musetta who exists only to inspire other phae. To reverse her exile, she must find a pair of lovers who have fled the court and return them to face the Queen’s wrath. But once in the mortal realm, she meets a man who unveils her hidden desires…

When Josh Reimer discovers an ethereal beauty at a cabin near his ranch, he decides the neighborly thing to do is take her in. Adelyn inspires a passion unlike anything he’s ever known and he vows not to lose the magic they’ve found together—even if that means she must choose between her home and their love.

Author’s Note: Although this is the second book of the Steel Born series, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSE can be read alone. You can find the first adventure of the steel-born phae in DARK HUNTER’S TOUCH.

Hannah Jamenson has babies on the brain. It seems that her sisters-in-law are expanding their family in the blink of an eye, but Hannah  feels left behind. Every time that little test reads negative a little part of her dies and she feels like her Healing powers are failing her. Her mates, Josh and Reed, are doing everything they can to help her deal with their trials and losses, but they too feel like there is nothing they can do.

Just when the lines of what they mean to each other go out of focus, an enemy from Josh’s past is back to prove the things that go bump in the night are real and everything they had held dear is now in jeopardy. In order to fight back and find their way, they’ll need to put everything on the line before they lose it all.

Author’s Note: This is a novella set between books 4 and 5 to give you a taste of Reed, Josh, and Hannah. It is best that you have already immersed yourselves in the Redwood Pack world, however even new readers will enjoy a glimpse of the Redwood’s favorite triad.
