Hello Morticia! Thank you so much for visiting Written Butterfly with me today! It’s such a pleasure to chat with you. So tell me…
Q) How did you dream up the dynamics of your characters?
Since the MCs are both human and alien, I had to give the aliens (called Alasharians) specific characteristics that would inform the dynamic between them and their human soul match. Not just the way they look—but their customs, habits, beliefs—everything. I had a lot of fun with their human match using slang expressions. Since they understand and speak English on a basic level, remarks such as ‘I’m trying to wrap my brain around that’, can cause quite a bit of confusion!
Q) Is this book part of a series? If so, can you tell us about it?
This is the third book in the Soul Match series, with two more to follow. It is one of those series that does need to be read in order to follow along with the intrigues and battles after the initial Earth invasion. Of course, the romance plays a big part as well, and three humans will find their soul match bonds throughout the course of the series.
Q) What gave you the inspiration for your book?
I love dystopian stories. I tend more toward the ‘alien invasion’ ones ala Independence Day, but without the all-star cast lol. With this story, I wanted to add additional elements to it that aren’t typically seen. So, there’s a multitude of genres going on here! It’s M/M/M, but BDSM is also an important aspect, since it’s how all couples work on the planet Alashar. They don’t call it that, for them it’s the balance in their relationship, but what throws them into turmoil is that they’ve never matched as three. The idea is shocking. Whereas same sex and kink relationships are the norm, a menage is considered taboo, and a match with a human is considered an abomination. I also added paranormal elements that include the ‘fated mates’ aspect of the soul match. There’s a lot going on!
Q) What are your upcoming projects?
More Soul Match, of course. But I’m also working on a gargoyle shifter series, and more installments of my bestselling Kiss of Leather BDSM series.
Hiding From Two (Soul Match 3)
Embracing destiny was never meant to be easy…
Morgan can’t figure out where he belongs anymore now that a new world has emerged in the aftermath of the Alasharian invasion of Earth. Everything is too strange and frightening and all he wants to do is hide from it all. It doesn’t help to ease his confusion when he finds himself being drawn to not one, but two aliens. He thought his cousin Chris was insane to fall in love with the muscled warriors who bonded with him as his mates, but his own heart might be in danger when it comes to the warrior Rama, and Hallosh, an advisor to the Alasharian’s Supreme Commander, the Nall.
Chris experiences a terrifying vision from the Soul Healer and it becomes clear that both Alasharian and humans are running out of time to save the Earth from the insidious spread of the Void. A battle is imminent and it becomes imperative to protect those who are allied against the evil that has corrupted the Nall.
Everything on Earth is about to change once again and Morgan finds himself at the brink of discovering his own destiny—and how the two aliens he can’t get out of his mind will be a part of it. A disturbing event triggers the beginning of the fight against the Void. Chris and Morgan must separate for the first time since the invasion, with each of them going with their soul matches. For Morgan, he hopes the goodbye he says to Chris isn’t forever.

Slave For Two (Soul Match 1)
What is destined cannot be changed…
Chris has had a monumentally bad month. First, an aggressive band of aliens invaded the Earth, conquered the world, and now he’s fighting for survival in the mountains with his family and the neighborhood bigot. Just because he’s barely out of his teens and a bit on the scrawny side, doesn’t mean he can’t watch out for his Mom, sisters and younger cousin. Chris keeps searching for the brighter side of things, but his humor is wearing thin. Fear can do that to a guy.
Lasar and Nary are a soul matched pair of warriors from Alashar. Lasar is Nary’s Ahna, the one who dominates him and Nary is the Nasha, or submissive to Lasar. Every Alasharian, regardless of orientation, needs the balance of the power exchange to exist peacefully within their lifelong, soul match bond. When Lasar is awarded a war prize, he sends Nary to look over the recent arrivals.
Chris and his cousin Morgan are captured and sent to the slave cages where they discover from the other imprisoned young men that they are destined to be sex toys for alien pairs. When one of those aliens saves Chris and his cousin from being abused by the slave master, Chris hopes that the seemingly kind alien won’t be too horrible of a master.
Lasar and Nary are finally alone together with their new sex slave, ready to enjoy their reward. But in the middle of their playtime a shocking event occurs that not only disrupts Chris’ world even more than it already was, it challenges everything that Lasar and Nary have always held dear. As Lasar searches for answers, he begins to question the reasons behind the Earth invasion and where his loyalties should really lie. As their Ahna, he must be the one who decides whether they will all be safer together, or apart.

Cherished by Two (Soul Match 2)
Destiny rewards those who embrace it.
Chris and his alien soul matches, Lasar and Nary, are ready to deepen their new bond as mates. It’s also time for Chris to begin his training as a Nasha, or sub, and for Nary to embrace his new role as Ahna, or Dom, to Chris. As three in the soul match they are unique. Not only have Alasharians never matched with a human, they’ve never matched as three.
What makes them special also puts them in danger. The Supreme Soul Healer warned Chris that many changes were ahead, ones even more startling than the original invasion. They must keep their bond a secret until they know who they can trust.
Lasar and Nary are invited to a pleasure party by the Alasharian’s leader, the Nall, and are forced to bring Chris and his cousin, Morgan. But a terrifying turn of events sets in motion what might be the beginning of the end for them all, unless they can resist the void.
