and read more about An Unexpected Legacy

Rafe Martin, Alpha of Crossroads wolves, tries to live a peaceful existence with his pack near the state forest in Central Louisiana. Most of the time, he succeeds. It’s only when others try to drag him into their problems, he has to remind them of his dominance and strength.

Lyric Taylor was born an Omega, the lowest of the low in pack standings. Abused and passed around freely to males in the pack, she has no hope of change or escape. Death would be a blessing, but her Alpha is too cruel to allow it.

When Rafe meets Lyric, he makes a startling discovery, forever changing his life.

An Unexpected Legacy delves into the dynamics of one Alpha and an Omega. Finding out, despite tradition, they are instead, Fated Mates. The story covers Rafe, the Alpha, dealing with this startling discovery, and how Lyric, the Omega, with Rafe’s encouragement, comes into her own, defying custom, culture, and her own birthright.


“You always worry about everyone else. When do you take time for yourself?” Daphne eased forward, wrapping an arm around Lyric’s waist.

Lyric shrugged, looking at the neat picnic area surrounded by large, shady trees. The pack’s land was much like the people she’d met—full of life, healthy, and vital. She thought about the Plantation pack with their crowded, dingy homes and dirt roads, and the comparison was ludicrous.

“I can’t change who I am or my situation,” she told Daphne. “If I’m helping others, I don’t dwell on me.”

“But you have that chance now,” Daphne exclaimed. “You’re already in a better situation—don’t think I’m the only one who’s noticed the way the Alpha watches you.”

“What do you mean?” Lyric shot her a panicked look.

“Lyric, he watches every move you make. Everyone’s noticed. There’s talk of Rafe finally taking a mate.”

“A mate! Well, that’s certainly not going to be me.” Lyric fought hard to calm her wolf. The beast wanted Rafe for her mate and would settle for nothing less. “Alphas don’t take omegas for mates. They need someone strong, to help lead the pack.” She turned sorrowful eyes on Daphne. “That doesn’t begin to describe me.”

Daphne was deep in thought before she finally responded. “I think it’s more between our wolves than our pack rank. If his wolf wants to claim you, it’s pretty much a done deal.” She eyed her knowingly. “What does your wolf tell you? I would be shocked if she’s been quiet all this time.”

“She’s noticed him,” Lyric admitted.

About Madison Granger

Convinced by friends to put a story to paper, Madison Granger started writing in 2015. Her beginning as an author was with a hybrid publishing house. Two years later, she became self-published and is now an Indie best-selling author of Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy.

Born and raised in Louisiana, living just south of New Orleans, she’s no stranger to the magical and different.

Madison shares her home with her daughter, granddaughter, and psycho cat, Mochii. If she doesn’t pay attention, her girls will let in the outside cats too.

Madison loves to read, listen to music (mostly country, with a little alternative thrown in), coffee, and horses. She collects dragons, gargoyles, and angels… and anything else that catches her fancy.

Q: Everyone has a secret party trick. What’s yours?

Not sure if it’s a party trick, but I have an uncanny knack for spotting typos, which is an immense help when I proofread or edit. I’m also an admitted Grammar Nazi.

Q: What book/movie was your “gateway drug” into paranormal romance?

Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice

Q: Which do you prefer, and why? Vampires, shifters, witches, or ghosts?

Shifters, hands down. Being strong-willed and a hopeless romantic myself, I’m drawn to the Alpha mentality and the idea of Fated Mates. With shifters, those two things go hand-in-hand.

Q: What was your favorite part about writing this story for Cocky Alpha Shifters?

Exploring the Alpha-Omega relationship and adding a twist of my own.

Q: If you could interview your main character from this story, what would you ask them, and how do you think they would answer? 

To Rafe: In learning about the Omega Legacy, and that a Legacy is only mated to an Alpha of worth, how does that make you feel?

A: Humbled. I don’t know about this worthy stuff; all I know is that I’m grateful to be blessed with a Fated Mate. Lyric is everything I ever wanted, and then some.

To Lyric: As a Legacy, do you have any words or plans for other Omegas?

A: I think there should be changes within the packs as to how Omegas are treated. Just because they aren’t born leaders doesn’t make them any less of a shifter.

Q: What’s your favorite thing about short stories as a reader?

To be honest, I prefer novels or a series.

Q: What was your preferred music/sound track for this story (assuming you have one).

If I tell you, you can’t judge me… LOL I listen to Pandora and the Nickelback station.
