Bitten by the Alpha by KF Jones

Bitten by the Alpha follows William, a twenty-year-old biology student, who is bitten by a wolf whilst out sketching woodland flora for his degree course. This comes as something of a surprise as to his knowledge, wolves have long been extinct throughout the British Isles. He returns to the area weeks later, having become a laughing stock at his University, determined to find proof that the wolf is real.

He meets Brian, a handsome country gentleman who is the first person to treat his story with any seriousness. As the weather turns, William visits Brian’s home in search of shelter and is introduced to a whole new world he had never imagined existed.

Bitten by the Alpha is a first time M/m erotic romance novella with some elements of mild BDSM. This is the first book in the Consort of the Werewolf King series.

Targeted Audience: 30

Author Bio:
I was born in the late 70's and will hit the age at which life begins in 2017. Since my truncated time at university studying courses that I was deeply unsuited for in a city that did not appeal, I have been writing erotica. It is long since time that I published some of my efforts and the process has become substantially easier over the years so there's no better time to start than now. My first novella kicks off an erotic romance series about British werewolves.

Bitten by the Alpha is my first novella and the sequel, Claimed by the Alpha will be out soon. They will be the first two books in the Consort of the Werewolf King series. I am also working on another series in the same universe which will focus on different characters.

Whilst my current focus is on my M/m erotic romance series, Consort of the Werewolf King, I'm also worldbuilding a steampunk Victoriana setting. I'm planning two series set in this world, the first a series of steamy romps following the exploits of an earthy adventuress, thief-taker and detective called Dawn. The second will be full-length novels mixing espionage, steam engineering, adventure and a heroine the equal of Dawn in both bravery and passion.

You can find out about any upcoming books at my website. I do hope you enjoy the books and I promise to keep them coming as fast as I can.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I enjoy erotica and romance and wanted to write something that was set in the U.K. (my home country). I love to build worlds and settings so I've come up with a version of werewolves that I like and allows me to put them in all sorts of enjoyable situations.

Pursued: A Vampire Blood Courtesans Romance by Lisa Carlisle

It was only meant to be three nights…

After watching my mother die, becoming a Blood Courtesan is key to my future in medicine. With loans racking up, all I have to do is pretend I want the money for tuition, and I’m hired. No one can know the real reason for wanting this job.

But it isn’t as easy as it first seems. On my first night as a courtesan at a ball in Salem, I meet vampires for the first time—and flee.

Vampires are not easily dissuaded. And one in particular, Renato, offers me a proposal I find difficult to resist. He has a dark, smoldering appeal that lures me in. Plus, I might gain the insight I seek.

I’m supposed to provide a service and will be paid well for it. But my feelings complicate our arrangement—and endanger my life.

It was only meant to be three nights, but can I walk away now?

Welcome to the shadow world of Blood Courtesans…where vampires are real and blood is a commodity.

It’s not supposed to be about love…until it is.

Bjorn is willing to do anything for Ari, including giving up his Council seat. But the closer he gets to winning her, the more seems to be standing in his way…

Targeted Audience: Adult

Author Bio:
I like to write whichever weird and wonderful tale comes into my head, which makes identifying the genre difficult even for me! My first series, Alventia, are novellas centred around Keira, aka Sleeping Beauty, and her Prince Philip, along with their allies Hansel and Gretel. It's a tale that very much told itself as I started to write it!

While I'm not writing, I work in Catering and am also an Assistant Brownie Guide Leader in the Midlands (UK). I like to bake and I love to read, and like with my writing, I read an eclectic mix of genres, and love every minute of it!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Bjorn and Ari were minor characters in the previous book, The Dryad's Pawprint, and as soon as I wrote them, I knew that there was more to their story. Once I'd finished Dryad, the two of them just wouldn't leave me, and so I ended up sitting down and writing their story!

Masked Intentions by Aya DeAniege

Rachel grew up in a world ripped apart by civil war. Alphas, genetically superior humans, wrested control of the western nations from the governing body twelve years ago. In the wake of the war, the Alphas struggled to remember the old traditions which had bound them to society. There are cracks in the new foundations, places for bad men to rule and for innocents to fall through.
After trying to care for her unstable mother, Rachel is picked up as a lawbreaker and slated for claiming or execution by an Alpha. In walked a stranger named Morgan. Unwashed, unshaven, flip flop wearing, unrefined Morgan, who all but kidnapped Rachel to take her home to his Master to be his breeder.
Neither planned beyond that. Alphas tend to just let things happen, and Rachel didn’t really expect to live through the day. Maybe a plan would have made things run smoother.

Targeted Audience: 25-55

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This world had existed for several years. While dabbling about with the possibility of writing a book, in walked Rachel. She's not the typical companion for an Alpha, which was great because Morgan isn't a typical Alpha. And while she's told throughout about what Alphas do and do not do, Morgan just does what he does because he knows how far she can go.

Cera is one of the fallen, as in fallen angels. Only a few of her kind are left in the mortal world because they’ve been hunted to extinction. When the wickedly handsome Hale shows up at the bar where she works, she feels an instant attraction.
What begins as a simple flirtation soon turns into a seduction that leaves both angel and demon craving complete surrender. Cera has reawakened Hale’s black heart, but will it be enough to save her life?

Targeted Audience: Adult

Author Bio:
Even as a child, Michelle Clay wasn’t afraid of the things that went bump in the night. In fact, the thought of a world where werewolves roamed and Dracula reigned king may seem like an eldritch dream to most, but was exciting to Michelle. Instead of turning on a light for comfort, she reveled in the dark, imagining the lives of what was out there roaming the night and frightening those who didn’t truly appreciate how interesting the supernatural really were.

Nowadays, her visions continuously take shape as she brings life to the worlds she has imagined since childhood. The wild imaginings that often got Michelle out of, or more often into, trouble as a young girl have informed and enriched her storytelling as an adult, bringing a fresh new voice to the paranormal genre.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I've always loved the idea of good vs. evil. What if what we thought was evil and depraved was, well, evil and depraved, but also had a good heart?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was inspired to write Alpha Lover after researching Russia to deepen my understanding of Nicholai’s character. When I introduced him in the first book of the series, his kind ways and romantic nature captured me. I couldn't wait to give him his own story and get to know him better, but I knew it would be set in the country where he is from, Russia, and that was a problem. At the time, I knew very little about the county.
My research showed me amazing castles with gilded moldings and golden statues. I also discovered a rich landscape full of exotic wildlife and snowy weather that provided a perfect setting for a romantic sleigh ride.
Alpha Lover, like all my stories, can be read as a stand-alone novel. I purposely wrote it that way so everyone would have a chance to get to know and love Nicholai as much as I do, regardless of whether you've read the other books in the series.
