Eleanor

When my boss sends me to Siberia to write a story about bad boy billionaire Alexei Vasiliev’s crusade to help endangered tigers, the last thing I expect is to end up in his bed. Once I’m there, I never want to leave but, with both of us harboring secrets, can our blossoming relationship ever work?

Alexei.

The moment Eleanor Hughes appears at my home, looking like a frumpy schoolteacher, I know I have to have her. Though she doesn’t seem my type, I’m drawn to her in a way I’ve never experienced before. But, behind my public persona, lies a dark secret. I come from a long line of tiger shifters. I’ve never trusted a woman enough to share my life with her. But, perhaps, Eleanor just might be the one.

Eleanor is sent, ostensibly to write a story about bad boy billionaire Alexei’s tiger conservation project. However, she’s realty there to get the scoop on why his mother, a famous socialite, suddenly left Moscow. When Eleanor and Alexei meet, he feels an instant attraction to her. She rebuffs him at first but, soon, his charms start to work on her. After spending a day together, they finally give in to their mutual desire. But then Alexei catches Eleanor snooping around the house where his mother is staying and gets mad. When his secret is revealed, Eleanor has to decide whether she likes him enough to take a chance on this cocky tiger shifter.

Excerpt

As soon as I’m ready, I creep out of the room, and sneak downstairs. Pavel’s warning against snooping chimes in my ears, but I ignore it. By now, he and everyone else in the house, is sure to be asleep. The front doors are locked, when I try them, and I’ve no idea how else to get out of the house. I walk along one corridor, after another, looking for an alternative exit. This place really is huge. I might not be able to find my way back to my room.

As I peer into what seems to be a smaller, more intimate dining room than the one where I ate with Alexei, a voice from behind makes me jump out of my skin. “Going somewhere, kotonyok?”

I spin around and my jaw drops. Alexei is standing behind me, stark naked. He’s intimidating in clothes, but like this, he’s downright scary. His body is more muscular than I realized. For a billionaire playboy investment guru, he’s pretty bulky. In the half-light of the corridor, it doesn’t look as if he’s got any ink, but there’s an interesting scar just above his hip bone. Now that my eyes have reached his hips, I can’t prevent them from glancing a little lower. I almost whistle in appreciation at what I find between his legs. The man is big all over. Realizing that I’m staring, I shake my head to clear away the libidinous thoughts that are floating through it.

“I…eh…I was looking for the kitchen.” I wave a hand in front of my throat. “Thirsty. I…What are you doing up?”

“I went for a run.”

“A run? In the nude?” His response is an indolent shrug. “In Siberia?”

“I was born here. I’m used to it.”

Interview:

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

All the old Hammer Horror movies got me hooked on vampire stories, but the one that got me into romance was Bran Stoker’s Dracula. I hated that he didn’t get the girl in the end.

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

I love shifters. I feel like they can be really dominant and a little bit asshole-ish and get away with it. That said I do love vampires, witches and ghosts, too.

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

I liked that I went in a different direction than I usually do. Most of my books are quite heavy on spanking. This story was lighter. There was more banter between the main characters.

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

When you were a child, did you pull little girls’ hair in the playground?

Alexei (smirking). Yes, I did, and they loved it.

If you could change one thing about Alexei, what would it be?

Eleanor – Not a thing, he’s perfect as he is (waits until he’s out of earshot) – actually, I’d make him a bit more humble. The man is insufferably sure of himself.

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

I like that you can read them in one sitting and get a glimpse into another world for a little while. I also love that they can introduce you to writers you’ve never come across before.

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

I don’t have preferred music or a soundtrack for the story but, if Alexei had a theme tune, it would be Sexy and I Know it by LMFAO

Q: What’s coming next for your readers?

Well, I’ll have a short story in another Shifters Unleashed Anthology, Shift Happens, coming out later in the year. I’m also working on completing my Claimed Mates series of wolf-shifter stories.

Cocky Alpha Shifters: Meet Madison Granger, author of An Unexpected Legacy

 

Cocky Alpha Shifters: A Shapeshifter Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Anthology is coming April 12th!

Bad boys are good…cocky alphas are even better…


Meet Madison Granger, author of An Unexpected Legacy,
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.

Excerpt

“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.

Interview:

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.

Immortal Legacies: Author Interview with Silvana Sanchez

Immortal Legacies
A Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Vampire Anthology

The Prince of Twilight by Silvana G. Sánchez

How I went from slaughtering chickens to beheading vampires 
and ruling them all.

I’m a vampire, but no ordinary one. After all, the Prince of Twilight is a title not easily earned.
No one is who they seem, at least not in my hometown, Mexico City. We have witches and monsters galore walking among us.
Who was to say I’d become one of them?
The Prince of Twilight is a fun fast-paced action-packed adventure that takes place in the heart of Mexico City. When vampires break into the lives of Beatriz and Demián, orphan siblings who live in La Condesa, a world of magic opens before their eyes. Before they even realize it, they’re trapped in a whirlwind of dark magic, curses, and monsters.
Will they survive to the most horrible weekend of their lives?

Interview with Silvana Sanchez

USA TODAY bestselling author, Silvana G. Sánchez writes monsters with a heart of gold, villains who are the heroes of their own stories. 

She lives in Mexico City with her husband Eric, twins Iker (†)  and David, and two Shih-Tzu puppies she lovingly calls her dragons, Wookie and Padme. When not cutting eyes open in her practice as an Ophthalmologist, she’s known to write dark fantasy novels in her writing den. You can find her lurking on her Facebook page and the Reader’s Den, her reader’s group, and on TikTok. Stop by to say hello. She doesn’t bite—not always, anyway.

Q: How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I started taking writing seriously when I was 9. I submitted a short story to a state contest and won first prize. That got me published for the first time, and I was swept in a blur of TV interviews and such. My passion for writing only grew since then.

Q: What currently compels you to write?
I have so many stories to tell. That, and my readers. They’re the absolute best!

Q: Where do your characters come from?
They come from the world that lives and breathes in my head. Sometimes, I’m inspired by specific people who’ve made an impact in my life.

Q: Who is a favorite character that you’ve written?
Demián from The Prince of Twilight is a little heartbreaker, definitely! And I’ll always have a special place in my heart for Ivan Lockhart, my first antihero. My favorite villains are Gavriil Alexeev and Alisa Lockhart from the Unnatural Brethren series.

Q: What’s coming next for your readers?
My dark fairytale retelling series Cursed Kingdoms comes out 2022. The first book Ash and Snow goes up on preorder starting January!

Excerpt from Prince of Twilight

I give her a stern look. “One ring to rule them all,” I mock in a low-pitched voice, but I crack a smile as my impression of Gandalf the Grey is far from polished.
Melissa bursts into laughter. She leans against me, and I wrap her with an arm in a warm embrace. The fact that I’m able to get that much joy out of her in a moment like this pulls a broader smile out of me.
The metro makes the last stop at Bellas Artes. As soon as the metal doors slide open, the metal monster spits us out into a sea of people. We find each other near the exit, making the climb upstairs on our way out of the station.
It’s a ten-minute walk across La Alameda, then a few more blocks down Independencia avenue until we arrive at the old theatre.
Doves sprint into flight as we reach street level. The symphony of murmurs, laughter, and singing mingles with the sweetness of an organillo playing Las Golondrinas. It’s a cloudy day, and even though it’s noon, the light is dim. It might rain at any moment. But one can hardly expect different weather in the middle of April.
“Let’s stop for a while over there.” I point at a spot in the Alameda, where vendors and demonstrators tangle in a colorful landscape of plants, artesanías, and bright planks of cardboard and fabrics inked with peaceful claims of protest.
We gather under the shade of a jacaranda tree. The kids drop their backpacks to the floor. “Let’s check out our weaponry,” I say, half cynical, half in dread. “Miguel, what did you bring?”
The boy opens his backpack, exposing a pair of holy crucifixes, two flasks of holy water, and a bag of salt. It’s Xóchitl’s stuff. “Is that the exorcised salt?” I ask. Miguel nods swiftly. “Do you guys know how to use these things?”

Immortal Legacies: Author Interview with Lulu M. Sylvian

Immortal Legacies
A Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Vampire Anthology

Mist Chances by Lulu M. Sylvian

It all started with a party. It uncovered a secret. It ended a curse.

Willa doesn’t like driving through the fog, even if there is promise of an epic party at the end of it. What she finds is a mysterious castle and a gut feeling that things just aren’t right.

She’s in the wrong place at the wrong time, and ends up as the igniting spark of a battle between vampires. With the help of the Red Knight and the angel in white she escapes with her life and her memories.

But she’s the only person who remembers anything. Even the castle is gone. That doesn’t stop Willa. She is determined to uncover the secret she knows is lurking on the other side of the mist, and find the two men she cannot live without.

This tale is the bastard love child of the Lotus Eaters and Brigadoon blended with true crime-cold cases and vampires.

Interview with Lulu M. Sylvian

Bio-engineered to be the only redhead in a generation of blonds, Lulu feels that “aliens” may actually be the best answer for a lifetime of being asked, “Where did you get that red hair from?”
Lulu cannot ride a horse, hula hoop, or play roller derby, but she can make pictures. Encouraged to make those pictures out of words Lulu began writing just to see what would happen, and words happened, so many words. She writes sexy hot paranormal and ridiculous contemporary romances. She embraces the crazy that comes with that one little genetic mutation, and attempts to live up to the reputation of being a redhead.

Q: How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I’ve had movies in my head my entire life. I never thought I would find a way to get them out. During a lull in my employment, I decided to see if I could get the movie out of my head and onto paper. That was in 2014. I honestly never expected to be a writer.

Q: What currently compels you to write?
Sometimes I think it’s just to get my characters to be happy. They can become quite distracting. Other times it’s my creative outlet. I’m always creating, be it crafty time, or sewing, or writing.

Q: Where do your characters come from?
They burst into the scene, demand my attention, and then make themselves comfortable until I tell their story.

Q: Who is a favorite character that you’ve written?
My two favorites are Dante and Gage. They are from different series Legaum and Wolves of Wet Waterfalls. Both are wolves. Dante is a wolf-shifter (can change at will), Gage is a werewolf (he has to change with the moon), but they are different as can be. Dante is a bit of a wild child, libertine, while Gage is Mr. Responcibility, man-in-a-uniform. It could be that they both have curly dark hair.

Q: What’s the one question you always like when people ask authors? 
I’m a sucker for the character questions. Mine sometimes feel real enough to be tangible. or at least a very good version of an imaginary friend.

Q: What’s coming next for your readers?
It’s the winter holiday season, and for my readers that means Christmas Strippers! This year I’ve collected all the shorts from the past few years and packed them into a new collection along with the older release, Unwrapped, and a never before published short. This year’s collection is called 10 Things I Hate About Yule.

Excerpt from Mist Chances

“You’re kidding me?” she laughed. “You want to run away because two hotties are interested in you? You should be throwing yourself at them. Come on Willa. This is ridiculous. It’s a party, relax.” 

Relax? Relax? She needed to look around this place. Something was seriously off, in a human trafficking kind of way, in a ‘we will never see our parents again’ kind of way, off. We did not belong at exclusive parties. I did not get hit on by the walking gorgeous. I cast my gaze around nervously trying to find an example I could show her that couldn’t be possibly right. 

I wanted to show her the bartender, with their ethereal beauty, and I wanted to show her all the people around us dancing and having a good time. And maybe she was right. Maybe I was overreacting. But I couldn’t relax. I couldn’t enjoy myself. 

I turned around and I saw my Red Knight and Angel stalking toward me. I should have been thrilled but I was relatively terrified. Why were these two men so interested in me? 

“My little lamb? I thought we had lost you,” the Red Knight purred. How could he be so seductive while all he did was stand there and look and smell good? And his voice, what was that accent? 

Ellie grabbed my arm. “Is this what you were so afraid of? Oh my God. Go get it girl.” She shoved me in the back and pushed me straight into the Red Knight’s arms. 

“Now this is more like it,” he said. “I appreciate your, what you call it, wingman’s enthusiasm.”

Immortal Legacies: Author Interview with Ariel Dawn

Immortal Legacies
A Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Vampire Anthology

Blood and Bones by Ariel Dawn

Some bonds are stronger than blood.

When eighteen-year-old Ava and her boyfriend attend a party on campus, things turn from fun to deadly rather quickly. As Ava bleeds out on the concrete floor, the angel of death comes…only he’s not an angel. And he isn’t quite dead either.

Cassius Aurelia finds a young college student fighting for her life on the floor of a frat house basement, and he can’t turn away. His bite will save her life, but it will also bring forth a litany of consequences for the both of them that neither may be ready for.

Blood & Bones is actually a prequel to In The Blood, which part of the Forevermore Series. It is the first book in the spinoff series, Ava Crowley, Vampire Slayer.

Interview with Ariel Dawn

I grew up an avid reader and daydreamer. As a creative soul, I enjoy many forms of expression aside from writing. I am a photographer, an artist, a cosplayer, a gamer, a foodie and a self-professed geek. When I’m not at a convention in cosplay, writing love stories, or editing photos; I can often be found reading with a cup of tea, running my Instagram Wrong Turn Romance, entertaining friends and family with great food, and playing video games or board games with my retro gamer husband.

Q: How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I started writing last year during the pandemic. I released my first short story in April of 2020, and then signed up for an anthology and wrote my first book, and it has been a wild roller coaster ride ever since… I initially wrote my first short story with the intent that if it was the only thing I ever published, I’d be happy. Then I wrote In The Cards, and In The Blood, and a year later I have six published titles and at least 3 series, plus a co-written series and there’s so much more to come.

Q: What currently compels you to write?
My characters probably. They don’t shut up until I write their story, honestly. But mostly, I think a lot of my writing is propelled by the fact that I’ve always been a creative person, and I’ve ALWAYS written stories; I just never shared those stories with anyone until last year. The support and success I have had definitely fuels me to keep going. Readers who love my stories definitely helps keep me going, and the support from them, my family, friends and author friends I’ve met help too.

Q: Where do your characters come from?
I have no idea. They just sort of emerge, and I feel like I know them. Their inner desires, their quirks, their flaws. I’m definitely inspired by the stories I’ve loved, the media I grew up with, and the stories I want to read. I grew up with heroines like Buffy and Xena, and that definitely influences my writing and characters as well. I also like to flip tropes and character expectations, so a lot of times I think about a character and how I can flip the trope.

Q: Who is a favorite character that you’ve written?
Ava Crowley & Cassius Aurelia from the Forevermore Series/ Ava Crowley, Vampire Slayer Seriesare my top favorites, because they are both so genuine in who they are, and their relationship is so much fun to write. Cas is not this typical vampire, and I just love him and all his flaws, his personality. Ava is such a badass, tough and resilient with a great sense of humor, but she isn’t perfect. She messes up constantly, is headstrong, and has flaws of her own- and she owns that.

After Ava & Cas, I’d have to say Jade Hollow & Ranger Woods from the Shifters Of Starfall Creek Series with Quell T. Fox are favorites as far as attachment. Jade is similar to Ava, but she’s more…aggressive and feisty than Ava. She knows what she wants, and she doesn’t let anyone or anything stand in her way, and even in the face of adversity she stands her ground. She’s also not perfect, and sometimes she causes fires when she shouldn’t, but she grows from that throughout the series, and I LOVE writing that journey. Seeing where she started and where she ends up. Ranger is the first male I’ve written who *spoiler alert* isn’t straight, and his attitude and personality are so much fun. He’s a reader favorite, and one of my favorite characters I’ve ever written.

Eden Boracelli from the Forevermore Series is also a favorite of mine I’ve written because she’s an amazing villain who you hate, but also understand.

Q: What’s the one question you always like when people ask authors? And please answer.
I don’t have an answer for that! I love all the questions!!

Immortal Legacies
A Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Vampire Anthology

Shade Games Francis by McKayla Schutt

Francis Schacter craves one thing more than blood…a cure for his curse.

He made the mistake of crossing a new witch and has been dealing with the clumsiness of a human. Keeping the secret from everyone hasn’t been easy, especially from his King, who can read minds with ease. During one of his night walks in the mountain, he causes a car to go off the edge. When he rescues Amber from her crushed car, something in his soul awakes. The curse says it will end when he completes the bond of mates, but convincing Amber they are meant to be isn’t easy.

Stability is all Amber Howard wants, and so far, she’s found it as the Mermaid’s human assistant. Finding her job wasn’t easy, and she’ll fight like hell to make sure she doesn’t have to go to bed hungry ever again. The night Francis makes her crash her car, she’s pulled into a new world of darkness and shadows. Part of her wants him, but the way he avoids certain topics makes her suspicious. Her choices will determine the future for vampires all over the world.

Excerpt from Shade Games Francis

Amber leaned over and hit the button on her phone to end the call quickly as another turn raced up to meet her. Her phone beeped three times, and she glanced over at the screen for a second. When her eyes returned to the road, her heart leapt into her throat and her foot slammed on the brakes. A person in all black stood in the middle of the fucking road!

Her back end kicked out to the right, and before she could correct her car, she was falling down a cliff. Her grip tightened on the steering wheel as the rush of adrenaline raced through her blood and a scream burst past her lips. The seatbelt bit into her flesh as the airbags popped all around her when the roof hit the ground hard. But it wasn’t over as it flipped again, going down the cliff backward. Another flip shattered her front window, the glass cutting up the airbags. Panic surged through Amber’s blood as she continued down the side of the mountain.

The back end slammed into the side of a tree and glass shattered all around her, cutting at her face and arms. I’m going to die! She wanted to scurry away, but her muscles were all seized up. The car slowly shifted against the huge tree. Metal groaned, and she turned to see the same man in all black at her door.
“How?” she asked as he yanked off the car door, tossing it down the rest of the way to the ground. He broke her seatbelt and yanked her out with ease as the car tried to snatch her away. She wrapped her arms around the male’s neck and clung to him. “Thank you.”

Immortal Legacies: Author Interview with Gemma Cates

Immortal Legacies
A Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Vampire Anthology

Dare the Devilish Vampire by Gemma Cates

A monster hunter who’d rather be a mom.

Maddie

Hunting, capturing, and killing the creatures of the night. As a Van Helsing, that should be my calling. But my deepest desire is to have a child of my own.
I can’t leave the life, because I don’t know any other way to exist. And if I gathered my courage and tried? My family would never let me leave.
I can’t raise a child in the midst of all this violence.
It’s a vicious cycle, and I see no way out.
I’m trapped by the blood that runs through my veins and the training I can’t ever forget. I can never have what my heart yearns for.

A vampire who’s turned his back on humanity.

Luke

For centuries, humans have provided me with blood and sex, no more.
Until I’m mated with a human.
A Van Helsing.
My one chance to build a family, and Fate paired me with the offspring of a genocidal clan.
Not so long ago, the Van Helsings hunted my kind, murdering all in their path whether we sipped or gorged on our prey.
The Van Helsing clan staked my maker. Not so great a loss as the friends who also fell to their blades.
And I was expected to mate with the spawn of these murderers or have my line die out.
An almost impossible choice.

A reluctant monster-hunting human and a human-hating vampire are matched by Fate. Their only shared desire a child. Can they overcome the past to discover a deeper bond?

Interview with Gemma Cates

Gemma Cates writes flirty vampire and shifter romances with plenty of the steamy stuff and a solid dash of humor. If you’re looking for hot paranormal fun and laughter, she’s happy to oblige.

When Gemma’s not cooking up new happily-ever-afters for her fanged and clawed heroes and heroines, she might be writing books in other, sweeter genres. (She’ll never tell.)

Check out her Almost Human Vampire Romances, Dragon Shifters Do It, and Van Helsing Sisters Adventures.

Q: How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I’ve been writing fiction professionally for about seven years and as Gemma Cates for about a year. I’ve always been an avid reader, but writing my own stories is even better than reading! (Most of the time…)

Q: What currently compels you to write?
So many stories waiting in the queue! So, so many!

Q: Where do your characters come from?
I take a slice of a person’s character (fictional or real) and then I expand on that using research and personal experience to create a completely fictional character. Building people from the ground up is definitely one of the fun parts of writing.

Q: Who is a favorite character that you’ve written?
My favorite character is almost always the one I’m writing right now. That happens to be a nerdy hot dragon who’s fallen for a writer in my Dragons Do It Nerdier book.

Q: What’s the one question you always like when people ask authors? 
I always love to hear about other author’s writing processes, especially if they have tricks for gaming their motivation. I like to run writing sprints with friends, change up my writing location, and chart my progress on projects.

Excerpt from Dare the Devilish Vampire

I walked into the coffee shop and scanned the small number of patrons. No way Tyler-no-last-name was one of these normals. Most of them were like me, just here to work, except they were toiling away on a laptop instead of meeting a client.

The scent of baked goods lured me to the counter after I claimed my favorite table at the back. Carbs and caffeine with a healthy dose of fat and sugar added in would go a long way to righting my off-kilter mood.
As I waited in line behind a plain black coffee drinker, I heard the jangle of the shop door’s bells.
It was instinct to clock the comings and goings of those around me. To be cognizant of the dangers that lurked in every corner, under every bed, behind every door.

Life as a monster hunter was filled with knowledge that occasionally weighed a little too heavily, and the daylight hours were usually my reprieve. The monsters I hunted almost exclusively clung to the darkness, where they could prey out of sight from the mainstream view of humanity.
Almost exclusively.

Accompanying the sound of those bells was a distinct prickle of awareness. One that warned I’d been joined in this small coffee shop by something “other.”

I shifted slightly, just enough to catch the newest addition in my peripheral vision.
After a pause, he—because the creature who’d entered the shop was in all ways masculine—walked to the counter to stand in line behind me.

As I ordered and paid for my espresso with half-and-half and my iced sugar cookie, I could feel his eyes on me.

There was a monster in line behind me, and he was checking out my ass.
I was also pretty sure he was my client.

“Never mind what?” Saffi asked as she had to scramble after him to catch up. “What’s that supposed to mean?”

“You don’t strike me as the type.”

“And what type is that?”

“The meaningless hook-up type. There’s something about you that gives me the impression you would not be the one sitting in a club somewhere playing tonsil hockey with some guy you just met.”

It was a pretty slick way to turn her down before she could make any embarrassing forward plays. She hated getting discounted because of her size, and it was always her size that was the excuse. Saffron didn’t look her age, and even being older than most people assumed, she had never been rejected based on her age. It always came down to the size of her ass. Body positivity be damned. There seemed to be plenty of men claiming they liked thicc, with two Cs, thighs. But they did not exist in her dating circles, or on any of those apps Kelly had her create accounts on.

“So what’s giving you that impression? My ass?” She circled the area around her ample hip. “Sounds like you’re saying I’m not your meaningless hook-up type.” She stopped with a huff. Letting her smile dissipate, she shook her head. This was stupid. That invisible confidence bodysuit suddenly felt itchy. “Why’d you have to go there? I wasn’t hitting on you or anything.”

Any confidence, real or imaginary evaporated. She plastered a sarcastic smirk across her lips and waited.

“I did notice that, and your ass”— Oscar walked around her raking her form with his gaze. With a bite of his lower lip, he made sure she knew he was appreciating the view— “that’s not a hook-up kind of ass. That’s the kind of ass that demands a commitment.”

Saffi bit the inside of her cheek trying to stop the blush she could feel burning. So she had been wrong, she had been the one to lob it into the booty size court. His volley had been artful. He managed to make her feel like he thought she was attractive, and yet, he still dodged that hook-up possibility.

Excerpt…
I yanked at his shirt. Okay, these tie open front blouse style shirts, not only looked super hot, they were so much easier to get open than buttons. Buttons were stupid, and I never wanted to deal with another one again. My skin pressed against his chest. He ran a hand up my back. I redoubled my effort to crawl inside of him via my lips. My heart pounded in my ears. I sucked in air as hard as I sucked in him.
Sounds got muffled, all that existed was Mann’s mouth on mine. He lowered me back. No, I was falling.
F***.
blackness again.
“Janey.” Mann patted my face.
I blinked up at him. Well, that put a real damper on the moment.
