The NØ Frat Clause - Naughty Office Romance by HK Carlton

Hello!  Thank you so much for visiting Written Butterfly with me today! 

Thank you so much for inviting me, Beth! Excited to be here.

Q) Can you give a fun or interesting fact about your book?

An interesting fact about this story is that it has had several different tellings and titles.
Considering it is not that old of an idea, this story has gone in many different directions.
The first title I dubbed this one was, Say My Name, since our sexy hero Roger, often says that to his new personal assistant Lexi, during some very intimate moments. The next incarnation of this story was entitled, The Moment of Truth, but I tried something a little different and it was not well received, it just didn’t work out. Live and learn. So back to the drawing board, I reworked the original Say My Name manuscript, but I no longer felt like that was the right title for the new and improved story. I finally decided on The NØ Frat Clause, because it is the crux of our hero and heroine’s conflict.

Q) What gave you the inspiration for your book?

The idea for this story actually spawned from an image prompt in one of the weekly blog hops I participate in, Masturbation Monday. The explicit picture was of a man fully dressed in a business suit, sitting on a cream leather couch, playing with a naked woman. It immediately took me to an office setting and I wrote a short erotic flash fiction to go along with it. A couple of weeks later, with Lexi and Roger still on my mind and a second erotic image prompt for M-Monday, another part of their story materialized. By then I realized Lex and Rog had a story to tell.

Q) Do you have any habits that get you in the writing frame of mind?

Coffee, coffee and more coffee, along with my Chihuahua by my side.

Q) Do you plan all your characters out before you start a story or do they develop as you write?

They absolutely develop for me on the fly. I might have a vague direction when I start, but the characters show me the way and often it isn’t where I expect to end up. They’re a pushy lot.

Q) How much real life do you put into or influences your books?

When I first started writing a lot of real life went into my stories but sooner or later you run out of things to share or that you can relate to. Often the day to day, is not that interesting. LOL. Not to say I don’t throw some of my own experiences or of those around me into it, I do, but  some of my more recent projects, I have zero experience in, so we’ll see how that goes. J I’ve been known to use snippets of conversation I’ve overheard, while I’m out and about, between absolute strangers, into my stories. So word to the wise, be careful what you share in public. You never know who might be sitting within earshot at the coffee shop, at the grocery store or on a plane. Author fodder is everywhere.

Q) What are your upcoming projects?

I have several manuscripts on the go but nothing complete at the moment. So stay tuned.

Temptation... It's all around us... the flesh is weak.

Haven't we all been tempted, at one time or another? Sometimes it's just too hard to be good.

Whether it's that rich chocolaty slab of cake alongside a cold glass of white milk while you're on a diet, or that drool-worthy muscle bound guy at the gym who you can't seem to keep your greedy gaze from, or the gorgeous young intern, new to the firm, who just needs some good training.

Temptation doesn't obey the rules and though they try their best to fight it, Roger and Lexi, don't either, The NØ Frat Clause.


Fresh out of college, Lexi Wideman lands an entry level job at a lucrative recruiting firm. Only six months into her tenure, she’s offered a major promotion—executive assistant to Roger Kent, the company’s coveted corporate headhunter. Older, irresistible, and ruggedly handsome, Roger Kent turns her into a liquid pool of need with just one smoldering glance. But the opportunity is just too good to pass up this early in her career. Lexi must find a way to remain professional while panting after her boss.

Roger Kent is thrown off guard when the company execs all of a sudden decide he needs an assistant. Perhaps he does, but Lexi Wideman is not the girl for him. She's smart, young, and gorgeous. It's hard enough trying to keep his eyes off her. Working in such close proximity, day after day, it would only be a matter of time before his hands followed.

So much for the No Frat Policy.

I hope you enjoy this naughty tease. A little Love in an Elevator...
(sorry, I just got that song stuck in your head for the rest of the day).


All of a sudden the lights flickered once again, and the lift jerked.

Lexi grabbed my thigh in panic. “Oh God!”

Oh God was right. Any higher and she was going to get a rock-hard handful.

I wound my arms around her, and we held on as the elevator came to shuddering halt. The lights went out entirely, plunging us into complete darkness. The hydraulic hum of the mechanics powering down droned. Then there was silence except for the clicking of the cables.

“Ohhh …” Lexi said in alarm.

“It’s okay. Take it easy,” I reassured her. “The auxiliary lights should come on in a second when the generators kick in.” But seconds ticked by and nothing happened.

“What’s happening?” she asked, her voice warbling.

“Power outage from the storm I’d say. Guess you were right, we should have taken the stairs.”

“Oh boy.” I felt her take a deep shuddering breath. She shifted, centering her back to my chest, and relaxed into me. I tried to maintain some distance, but there was no help for it, with her perfect little ass snugged right up against my upper thighs. There was no way she missed the massive bulge in my pants. She tensed, but she didn’t pull away either.

I inhaled her familiar scent. Another bad idea. It was just as arousing as the rest of her. She smelled fanfuckingtastic.

Her breathing became erratic. I was afraid she was about to panic.

“We’re okay. Relax.” I ran my hands up and down her arms.

She melted into me.

“Do you have your cell phone?” I asked in a tight voice. “We could use it for light. And-or call for help. At least let someone know we’re in here.”

“No, I left mine at the office. You?”

“I think I tossed mine in the briefcase. It's down here by our feet somewhere.”

A ringing noise made us both jump.

I released her and groped in the dark until I found the little door containing the emergency phone. “Hello?” I answered in a clipped tone.

“What's your name, and how many are with you?” a gruff voice barked.

“Roger Kent. There are two of us. Myself and my assistant.”

“We're working on getting you down. Try not to panic.”

“All right, but can you do something about the auxiliary lighting?”

“The generators should engage anytime now. Sit tight.”

“Okay, we’ll sit tight. As if we have a choice,” I said as I hung up.

From the awkward way I'd been leaning, I straightened up slightly, rearranging my hips back into the corner. “We’re gonna be a while,” I said and reached for Lexi. It was pitch black. I couldn’t make out a goddamn thing. “Where'd ya go? Christ, it’s dark.”

“I'm searching for the cell.” Just then my palm made contact with a nicely rounded hip. Oh fuck, she was bent over in front of me. I followed the soft plump curve as she rooted through the briefcase. I closed my eyes and took long, slow inventory of her shapely backside. I stifled a groan, but it escaped as more of a grunt.

Slowly, she straightened and turned in my direction. The low light from my cell screen glowed, illuminating the space between us.

The tension between us was palpable. She stared at me. Her lips parted. I don’t know what she saw in my expression. One of us made a growling sound. I suspect it was me.

Simultaneously, she dropped the phone and reached for me as I grabbed for her. I sought her lips hungrily as the darkness enveloped us once more. She moaned something incoherent into my mouth.

In a wild frenzy, we nipped and sucked at each other’s mouths, our hands roamed free and greedily. My cock lengthened to painful proportions.

Lexi arched into me, her ample breasts pressing against my upper chest. She squirmed as I tried to gather her sweet backside in my greedy hands. Lifting her, I thrust my hips at her, leaving no doubt as to what I wanted.

In answer, she pressed her pelvis against me. The pressure felt amazing, but I wanted more.

“Yeah,” she cried softly. “Yeah …”

Fuck yeah!

Q & A with Amber Morgan!

Hello!  Thank you so much for visiting Written Butterfly with me today! 

Thanks for having me! :D

Q) How did you dream up the dynamics of your characters?

I'm a classic pantser – planning ahead when it comes to writing is just not in my nature. But I know with short stories that every word counts, and I didn't want to waste words introducing a new couple and have them fall in love in an extremely short time-frame. So I went with a reunited lovers theme instead – Lara and Zane broke up a year ago. In WAKING THE LIONESS, chance throws them back together. They already know each other and have a deep, complex history. Adding Tate to the mix (who has his own established relationship with Zane) gives Lara and Zane's relationship a new twist...which was lots of fun to write!

Q) Is this book part of a series?  If so, can you tell us about it?

It will hopefully be the first in a series of shorts set in and around the fictional town of Malkin Ridge, focusing on shapeshifters and their love lives! I have a vague idea for a sequel to Lara/Zane/Tate's story.

Q) Do you have any habits that get you in the writing frame of mind?

I make up playlists for the majority of my projects – songs that remind me of characters or scenes, and I listen to those when I can't write, to keep me in the right mood for when I can write!

Q) What are your upcoming projects?

As well as the sequel to WAKING THE LIONESS, I'm working on an MC romance called Wolf's Hunt, the second in my Wild Blood MC series. I've also got a couple more short stories in the works, both paranormal romances, but very different in tone. I'm hoping to finish Wolf's Hunt before anything else – the end is so very close!

Convinced she could never give her fiance what he truly wanted, cat-shifter Lara Carey walked away from her home and her engagement, and started fresh in New Orleans. One year on, she's never stopped missing Zane Walker...but it's too late to do anything about it, isn't it?

Zane Walker hasn't come to New Orleans to find Lara, but when chance throws them together, his passion for her is reignited. There's just one problem. Zane's new lover is missing somewhere in New Orleans, and even if Zane and Lara find him, can Lara accept him and Zane?

Congrats to Jessica Coulter Smith on her New Release!

Kicked off his home world after losing his mate, Reyvor has made a place for himself on Earth, spending his afternoons drinking and his nights cruising the streets on his Harley. But all of that is about to change. A commotion outside of his motel room just may turn out to be his saving grace.

Hazel has lost everything, but she'd do it all again if it meant escaping the abusive boyfriend who liked to beat on her three girls and herself. Dumpster diving has never been her favorite thing to do, but she doesn't have a penny to her name and her girls are starving. But when she's caught, something miraculous happens.

Reyvor knows right away that the petite woman with the large blue eyes needs him. When he hears that this little ragtag family hasn't eaten in days, he convinces Hazel to accept a warm meal and a place to stay for the night. The girls warm his heart and remind him of what he once wanted out of life. Is it too late to start over?

Hazel is hesitant to trust anyone again with her heart, but Reyvor is determined to make her his. What's an alien to do when all he wants is a loving family to call his own? He'll break down her defenses one by one, until she melts against him and begs for his kiss. But can he claim the feisty Hazel without completely losing his heart to her?

Character Interview

Nikki, you’re the big sister. I would imagine you feel protective when it comes to your siblings. Did you have any reservations about Reyvor when you met?

No. I could tell by looking in his eyes that he was kind. Not many men would offer to let a woman and her three kids stay in his hotel suite, feed them, and clothe them. He didn’t hesitate when he saw we needed help; he just stepped in and gave us whatever we needed.

So you were okay with your mom dating him?

Reyvor is wonderful. I only wish Mom had found him sooner. Maybe if she’d had a chance to meet someone like Reyvor, she never would have stayed with Dad, and we wouldn’t have ended up on the streets.

What’s it like living on the streets?

Scary. You never know where your next meal will come from, or if there will even be one. Unless you have money to spend at a truck stop, there’s not really a chance for a hot shower, and you can forget about clean clothes because money is too scarce to spend it at a laundromat. I think the scariest thing was the night Abby was almost abducted from the homeless shelter while we slept. If she hadn’t managed to scream, I doubt we would have ever seen her again.

You’re a very brave little girl to go through all that.

I’m not little. And you have to be strong to make it on the streets. There isn’t really a choice if you want to survive.

But things are good now, right? You’re happy?

Very! Reyvor bought us this amazing house where we all have our own room. And I’m kind of hope for another sister or maybe a brother before too long. Mom told Reyvor she would be okay with having more children and I think it would be great to have a bigger family.

Well, thank you for visiting with me, Nikki. I’m glad you got your happy ending.

Hazel looked at her children and wondered what she was going to do next. It had been weeks since they’d had a bath, even longer since they’d had clean clothes. All of their belongings had been stolen at a shelter downtown, and poor Abby had almost been abducted. Hazel had steered clear of the place since then, deciding it was safer on the streets. They’d slept in the park on nights when it was nice, and huddled in shop doorways on rainy ones. It had been so long since they’d felt the comfort of a bed or had the luxury of a roof. But living on the streets was better than the alternative.
“Momma,” Winnie said. “Are we going to sleep here with the nice purple man?”
“He’s a Terran, honey, and no. We’ll stay long enough to eat and then we should move along. It was nice of him to offer food for us, but we mustn’t take advantage of him.” Even though she had to admit staying with him wouldn’t be a hardship. When she’d crashed into him, she’d felt the strength in his arms and her gaze had clashed with his dark pansy colored one. She’d felt her heart race in her chest and had hoped he couldn’t feel it too.
Abby curled into the corner of the sofa. “But it’s nice here. I don’t want to leave.”
“I’m sorry, sweet angel. I know you miss things like TV…”
“And hot water,” Nikki mumbled.
“But we just can’t afford a place right now,” Hazel continued as if her eldest daughter hadn’t just smarted off.
“Since you don’t work, we’re never going to afford a place,” Nikki said. “Are we going to live on the streets forever? Because right now, I’d rather be home with Dad.”
Hazel sucked in a sharp breath. “You don’t mean that! Your father is the reason we’re living the way we do. Did you really want to stay and see if he became angry enough to kill one of us? Or all of us? Weren’t you tired of the beatings and screaming?”
“Daddy’s a mean man,” Winnie said. “But the purple man seems nice. Maybe he wants a family.”
“Honey, you can’t just pick a man and decide to live with him.” Well, technically you could, but she didn’t want to get into that with her middle child. At seven, Winnie was too smart for her own good. And Hazel wouldn’t lie to herself… she kind of liked the idea of staying with the Terran. Their meeting had been brief, but she’d seen kindness in his eyes and there was a gentleness to his touch. Two things that had been missing from her life for a long time.
“Why did you stay with Dad so long if he’s so horrible?” Nikki asked.
“Your father was nice when we first met, and he treated me right. It wasn’t until Winnie was born that he began to change. Something twisted in his mind and suddenly everyone was out to get him and nothing was ever good enough. $We weren’t good enough. I’d rather live on the streets than take a chance on your father harming one of you again.”
The sound of a motorcycle alerted Hazel to the alien’s return. She shushed the girls and hoped they wouldn’t say anything embarrassing in front of him. He really did seem like a nice man, but they would accept their meal and be on their way. If they hurried, they might still get a good spot at the park to sleep for the night. Not that Hazel did much sleeping. She dozed off here and there, but she tried hard to stay awake and watch over the children. Her body was exhausted and she couldn’t remember the last time she’d slept through the night.
Unbidden, an image of her wrapped in Reyvor’s arms rippled through her mind. What would it be like to be held all night by someone like him? She doubted she would ever find out.

Male Pregnancy (MPreg) Erotica...A Unique Twist on M/M Sci-Fi

WELCOME JACEY HOLBRAND & ELIZABETH MONVEY! I'm extremely thrilled to have both of these Evernight authors on my blog today, who write a very unique twist in M/M erotica sci-fi romance. Their stories are of male pregnancy, or Mpreg, which is a hot trend right now that not many authors are delving into.  First up is Elizabeth, who was kind enough to answer some questions, and then Jacey talks about how she and Elizabeth collaborated on ideas.

 Q) How did you dream up the dynamics of writing Mpreg?

Actually, the senior editor at Evernight suggested it me, and then one day at coffee, I brought it up with Jacey, who had similar ideas about the concept.  From there, my first Mpreg story, My Pregnant Boyfriend, grew.

Q) Is it part of a series?  If so, can you tell us about it?

Yes!  My Pregnant Boyfriend was part of the My Boyfriend Is…series, and the current books I’m writing now are called the Divergent Species series.  The first book, The Bear’s True Mate, leads us into a world were genetic manipulation between shifters are possible. 

Q) Do you plan all your characters out before you start a story or do they develop as you write?

I’ve had to plan out the Divergent Species books because the last book ties into my short story, Outlaw Wolf, in the Bad Alpha: Manlove anthology edition.    

Q) What drew you to this unusual genre?

I like that it’s a subject that hasn’t really been explored yet.  There aren’t that many authors writing it, so it was a challange.  For me, though, I have to make it believable so I had to come up with a logical, scientific explanation on how a man might become pregnant.  With the first book, I simply used the “nature finds a way” method.  With The Bear’s True Mate and Declawed, I wanted to explore how in nature, some males can give birth, or some genders can switch when needed.  The research was fascinating.

Jacey and I might write the same genre, but we use completely different concepts on how to achieve the male pregnancy.  If you’ve not read The Agency books, I highly suggest you do so.  They are spooky, and scary, and whisk you into that place where the boogeyman hides.  I LOVE her books! 


Hi everyone! Big thanks to Beth D. Carter for having me on her blog today to talk about my male pregnancy stories and how they came about. :)
In the fall of 2014, my friend, Elizabeth Monvey, and I had been talking about the stories we planned on writing and trying to figure out what the “next big thing” would be and what readers would find different and interesting to read. As the conversation ensued, the subject of male pregnancy came up. We both thought the topic had possibilities, but how would we make men get pregnant in our stories?

I’d already started a series called The Agency with the male-male, sci-fi story, ‘The Encounter’.
I’d planned on doing a mix of paranormal and science fiction stories for this particular series, but after talking with Elizabeth, I decided The Agency would lean more toward sci-fi. My muse came up with the idea of alien scientific experimentation in which the aliens make men pregnant.
With each story, I’m trying to create different ways the aliens impregnate the men to keep things interesting. Also, in changing up how the series would be, another alien race came into the picture along with a conspiracy theory one of the characters is trying to solve. So far the books are as follows: ‘The Encounter’ where readers are introduced to the alien race through Evan’s abduction; ‘Breeding Seth’ where we discover how Seth is taken and impregnated; and ‘Cooper’s Condition’ in which Cooper is snatched and winds up pregnant. I’ve had a rough year writing wise with a lot of personal stuff that’d cropped up, but I’ve been pecking away at the fourth story in The Agency when I can. Hopefully I’ll be wrapping up ‘Mason’s Mijos’ and submitting it soon. It’s a male ménage with a few paranormal aspects on top of the science fiction stuff. ‘Mason’s Mijos’ will reveal the other alien race and delve more into the conspiracy aspect as well as have some more mpreg goodness. Then it’ll be onto the last book in The Agency where everything will be wrapped up. After that, I’m thinking of doing a spin-off series involving the alien races and the earth/star children, but we’ll see how time tells. ;)
And, to think, all this came about from having a cup of coffee with a good friend. Thanks, Elizabeth! :)
Big thanks to you too, dear readers, for taking time to read our stories and wanting more.
Love & blessings to all, Jacey

Welcome Lynn Burke! Risso Family Returns...

Hello!  Thank you so much for visiting Written Butterfly with me today! 

Q) How did you dream up the dynamics of your characters?

Zane had made appearances in earlier Risso Family novellas, and Raquel was born out of knowing what he needed to be tamed. A Dom and an innocent with a secretive kinky mind = fireworks galore.

Q) Is this book part of a series?  If so, can you tell us about it?

This is book four in my Risso Family series which follows four siblings from the Boston area. I’ve branched out with a cousin who we meet in Tempered by Her, Theo. I just signed a contract with Evernight for his story, Chasing after Him.

Q) Can you give a fun or interesting fact about your book?

I grew up in an uber conservative family, and even at a young age, my mind tended toward the ‘bad’ if you know what I mean. Took me awhile to find the guts to explore that part of my mind and the characters screaming for attention.

Q) What gave you the inspiration for your book?

The entire series actually began as a short story for an anthology call. Susceptible to Him morphed into a story beyond that call when Lia’s brothers began whispering in my brain telling me they wanted their own stories as well.

Q) Do you have any habits that get you in the writing frame of mind?

No habits, but I’ve been known to jot down notes on anything handy as they come to mind. A lot of my plot lines come into focus as I’m cleaning. Go figure!

Q) Do you plan all your characters out before you start a story or do they develop as you write?

I’m a major planner, and I’ve been known to fill out a few personality tests in order to solidify a character, their thoughts, ticks, and favorite sayings in my brain.

Q) How much real life do you put into or influences your books?

A little from not just my own life, but friends, families, & even people I see in passing. The news is always loaded with good stuff to glean from, as is my Facebook stream.

Q) What are your upcoming projects?

My 5th Risso Family novella will be releasing within the next 2 months, and the second in my Found by Fate series, Finding Freedom releases Feb 1st with Roane Publishing.

An author I admire BIG TIME contacted me a few days ago about co-writing a novel with her. We’re in planning stages, but I am STOKED to say the least!

Tempered by Her
Risso Family #4
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
Release Date: November 17, 2015


Zane Risso, a Dominant unyielding in his desires, is haunted by the one woman he wants and can’t have, vanilla goodie-two-shoes Raquel Hawkins. He knows the only way to flush her from his system is to seduce her and move on, because surrendering the kink club addiction he enjoys is not a demand he'll accept. From any woman.
Raquel Hawkins has never known temptation like the blue-eyed Italian god who seems fond of whispering naughty things in her ear during office hours. He’s bad news—sin personified—and although she continues to deny him, her body’s responses to his sensual words just might buy her a one-way ticket to hell.
From their first kiss, Zane’s determination to overcome her Pollyanna principles threatens his lifestyle. For Raquel, giving into temptation would doubtless leave her heart a shredded mess—and unlock sordid secrets best left in the dark.


I found Raquel kneeling in the center of my bed, hands on her lap, head bowed, her high heels placed side by side on the floor at the bed’s foot. She hadn’t obeyed my first command, but fuck me, I didn’t give a shit.

I’d planned on taking her over my knee and reddening every inch of her ass and thighs, but seeing her in such a submissive pose in the middle of my bed had me drooling for a taste. “Take off your blouse.”

She started at my voice, but lifted shaking hands to do as told. With each button slipped free, my arousal returned, and the blue silk sliding off her bare shoulders and revealing a see-through white lace bra and puckered rosy nipples brought a groan to my lips.
“Lay back.” I strode forward as she straightened her legs and complied, the sounds of her quickened breaths heating my blood.

Fuckin’ Raquel Hawkins, sweet innocent, was on my bed, the darkness beneath her knee-length skirt sending my saliva glands into hyper-drive. I slipped leather ties around her wrists and tied her tight to my headboard. She chewed on her lower lip, chest rising and falling enough to make me think she might call out her safe word, but she kept silent.

I kicked off my shoes and climbed onto the bed, pushing up her pencil skirt with agonizing slowness over nylon-clad legs while settling on my haunches between them.

Thigh highs. I swallowed. Fuckin’A.

A sweep of my thumbs from inner to outer thighs, and she lifted her ass, allowing me to push the skirt to her waist. So much for my assumption about granny panties. White lace matching her bra and a scrap of silk hid her virgin curls from me. I leaned down, breathing in the sweet, musky scent of her arousal. “I’m going to taste you, Raquel.”

She gasped, her hands flexing in their restraints.

“You’re not allowed to come until I tell you to.”


I reached up and pinched her nipple, earning another gasp, a groan of pleasure on its heels as she writhed on the bed. “The proper response would be, yes, Sir.”

She licked her lips again and whispered, “Yes, Sir.”

“Yes, Sir, what?”

“I won’t come until you tell me to.”

Welcome Sara Anderson! Wild Mountain Shifters Series!

Thank you so much, Sara, for visiting Written Butterfly! 

Q) How did you dream up the dynamics of your characters?  

I think about the things my husband does for me that melts my heart, and he does a lot. I also pay attention to how women talk, what they want in a book boyfriend. I try to find a nice mix between the fantasy and reality, so the book isn’t too far out of the realm of possibility.

Q) Is this book part of a series?   


If so, can you tell us about it?  

My shifter series, Wild Mountain Shifters, is about a group of shifters living together in a mountain town in Colorado. I love a good story with mythical creatures so I added several. Some are cute like the fairies that play in pollen. Some are hideous like the morchain.  

Q) Can you give a fun or interesting fact about your book? 

When a male shifter mates with a human he shares a bit of the magic in him with her making it possible for her to see the magical creatures and get pregnant.

Q) What gave you the inspiration for your book? 

While bathing my toddler I started thinking about a woman camping in the mountains and she runs across shifters. The questions started then, what made her attract their attention? Millions of people visit the mountains and they don’t give them a second look. Why is my character special? The Guardian’s plot took shape that night.

Q) Do you have any habits that get you in the writing frame of mind? 

Brainstorming with others will get me writing.

Q) Do you plan all your characters out before you start a story or do they develop as you write?  

I start most stories with a vague idea. I start working on one character until the story starts coming to me. I tried planning but my characters rebelled.

Q) How much real life do you put into or influences your books? 

I try to add a lot. It is easier to write about things I know. It pulls me out of my imagination to have to look things up.

Q) What are your upcoming projects?  

I have a new science fiction series I would like to write. I thought about another paranormal as well. 


While vacationing in the Colorado mountains, Cassie is attacked by a wild animal. She manages to get to the local town in hopes of reporting the attack to the Sheriff. But she falls ill from the bite wounds and is found by the shifter guardian, Michael. 

Michael learns Cassie is half shifter, and the essence that had been dormant is now stirring due to the bites she received from a renegade shifter. The only way to save her life is to change her completely. 

They find themselves drawn to one another, and Michael uses the bond they have formed to teach Cassie about their ways, shifting, and submitting to his dominance in and out of the bedroom. 


I am Sara Anderson. I am an author published through Evernight Publishing. I also have a science fiction series. 

I am married to the man I met in high school and we have three children together. 

We live in rural southern Missouri. It is beautiful here with the gentle rolling hills and green acreage. There are cows everywhere since this area has two of the top beef producing counties in the state. Cowboys are easy to find here, and country music is the default music of every grocery store and gas station.

Cole and Blair planned to mate, until a tragic event caused Cole to call off their relationship. By the time Cole realized his awful mistake it was too late. Blair had gone, joining her parents overseas. 

For four years Blair lived abroad, but when her grandmother died, she returned to take over her grandmother’s café. She still tried to avoid Cole, but he never gave up over the year she has been back.
