I had no family, no friends. I was utterly alone and always had been. And once I aged out of the system that raised me, I decided to find out exactly who I was.
Where did I come from? Who were my parents? What made me… me?
It became the fire in my veins.
My journey led me to Scotland, the Highlands, and for the first time in my life, I had this feeling of… belonging.
What should have been a simple hike through the Scottish countryside led me to things far more mysterious than trying to find out who I was.
There were other things—creatures—lurking in this world, ones who were stronger, fiercer. Ones who were not human.
Everything I’d ever known seemed like a fable now. And what was once a fable was now true.
It was one of those otherworldly creatures who stalked me—chased me. I knew I couldn’t outrun him. I couldn’t escape.
He was bigger than any man I’d ever seen, stronger than anyone should be. His growls were feral, his fangs animalistic, and when he watched me, it was with glowing eyes.
I found myself at his mercy, chained to a bed and alone with this man who wasn’t really a man at all. I asked him why I was there, why he took me, held me against my will.
And all he said was… I was his mate.
I wasn’t human, not completely.
A Lycan—a centuries-old wolf-like creature that was feared by all, stronger than anything on the planet, and who was only ever after one thing. My mate.
For over three hundred years, I had one purpose in life. Find her, the one female born to be mine. My female who’d cause the Linking Instinct—that supernatural connection that told me she was mine and I hers—to finally take root and make me whole.
And for hundreds of years, I’d been alone, saving myself for my mate, never stopping the search.
Until I scented her, saw her, finally felt my heart beat and the blood rush through my veins with hope and anticipation.
She didn’t see me, but she sensed me.
And she ran. She couldn’t possibly know how much the chase turned me on.
I didn’t know how I’d make her understand I could never let her go, that nothing and no one would stop me from making her mine.
Because once a Lycan found his mate… nothing in this world, nothing supernatural or human, could keep him from her.

Luca I'd lost my mind, was more animal than man. More crazed than sane. And all because I hadn't found my mate, that one female born to be mine and mine alone.
As an over four-hundred-year-old Lycan, a supernatural being who was able to shift from human to my inner wolf, my kind was known as fearsome beasts with unimaginable power. All feared us, and rightfully so.
I had given up hope of ever finding my mate and because of that had let my inner beast reign supreme, control me. I was far more rabid than anything else.
But then it happened. I saw her, my halfling mate. Part Lycan. Part vampire. She was perfect and made just for me.
I craved her like no other, and I'd have her as mine no matter what.
For there was nothing more dangerous than a male of the Otherworld finding his mate and keeping her close.
But she had protectors, brothers and a father who saw me for the beast I was, and were ready to go to war with me... to keep her from me.
I'd been waiting my entire life for her, and they'd soon realize I'd level anything and anyone who thought to stand in the way of claiming my prize, no matter the consequences or repercussions.
I’d felt arousal for the first time in my life when I spotted him across the room.
Logan Marsh was a big, burly man, towering over everyone and everything, his size almost inhuman, his masculinity having me keenly aware I was very much female.
And he watched me… God, he watched me like there was nothing else in the world that fascinated him but me.
We’d been thrown together for the holidays, him playing Santa and me Mrs. Claus. It was a professional relationship that turned out to be anything but. And my inexperience should have had me frightened by the way he looked at me… like he imagined me naked and spread eagle just for him.
But instead of running, which would have been the smart move, I found myself wanting all of it. With him.
The world tilted under my feet the moment I saw her. This tiny little thing who was half my size but called out to every protective, possessive instinct in my body.
She was the woman I'd been waiting for, and there was no deviating from my path to claim her.
Blythe was so very female to everything in me that was male, and I wanted to memorize every inch of her body with my hands, lips, and tongue.
Whatever primal need rode me, it did it hard and without apology. I’d probably frighten Blythe with my need for her, but better she found out now what kind of man I was when it concerned something I wanted.
And I’d never wanted anything as much as her.
**A complete standalone story in the Mistletoe, Montana series!**
But she was the Alpha’s daughter.
Off-limits to everyone, especially me, the Beta of the pack. The Alpha’s second-in-command.
Mia was the one female who had been born to be mine and mine alone. There would never be another for me. There never had been anyone for me. And when I finally gave myself over to a woman, when I kissed a female for the first time, touched her, I’d give that honor to my mate only.
And the way Mia looked at me, the innocence that poured off of her but mingled with her bone-deep desire told me my mate was ready to take things to the next level. She was ready to let me claim her… mark her.
But there was one massive obstacle stopping me from making my dreams a reality, from making my fated mate mine. And that was her father finding out and trying to stop me.
He had his own heartache in the past, and because of that, he held Mia very close, was very protective of her. He wouldn’t give her up without a fight.
And when the truth was finally revealed, there was only male who had the strength and power to challenge the Alpha… and that was me.
Rylan, Zarek, and Soran came from a planet of fire and stone.
One known as hell itself.
They were powerful warriors, feared by all in their galaxy, and born and trained to be killers.
But the time had come for them to settle down. To take a mate. Grow a family.
Share a woman between the three of them.
With no females on their planet, they must purchase one at the intergalactic auction—not something they were proud of, but necessary, nonetheless.
And once they had her, they’d be bound forever, dedicated only to her, and would protect her with their lives.
Tessa was a human—an almost extinct race.
After she was captured by slave traders, she was thrust upon an open market. A savage and barbaric auction.
And when she was purchased it wasn’t by just one buyer… but three.
She certainly isn’t on Earth anymore, not when she’s now claimed by three giants with fire-colored skin, eyes as black as the galaxy surrounding her, and massive onyx-tipped wings.
Can Tessa accept her fate and the fact that the three alien males are intent on not only making her theirs… but ensuring she gets pregnant with their babies?

He said I was his. He said he was coming for me
So there was only one thing for me to do.
He wouldn’t stop until he found me, until he put his mark on my neck.
Well... game on then.
He may catch me, maybe sooner than I wanted, but I wouldn't give in without a fight.
If a hunt was what he wanted, if it turned him on even more, then I'd make sure I didn't make it easy.
That's what I told myself anyway.
*Unedited. Official blurb and cover coming soon*
My name traveled far and wide, and those who heard it knew their place… accepted their fear above all else.
I had riches beyond measure, my followers countless and loyal. But I was missing the most crucial part of my reign, of my ruling.
A wife. My queen. A mother to my warrior sons and princess daughters.
But there’s only one female who tempted my eye and made me yearn for more. And for years I coveted her and her alone, waited until I could provide for her without fail.
She’d once been a young sapling barely reaching my thighs, but she’d grown into a mature woman full of curves that made me ache.
She was the female I knew would make my filthiest fantasies come true. Prima was so small, tiny compared to me, and every protective instinct I had rose up with a vengeance strong enough to level anything in its path. I’d always protect her without fail. She was mine, no matter what.
And when timid, inexperienced Prima was finally brought to me—my conquest after years of being alone—I was a selfish bastard and wouldn’t deny myself from claiming her.
In the end, she’d surrender. Because beneath her uncertainty and innocence was a wildfire I was ready to let burn me alive.
I didn’t know her, what she looked like, where she was, but I knew my mate was out there. And it was that truth that had me saving myself for her. Only her. If I couldn’t fully give myself over to my fated mate, what kind of worthy male was I?
But staying in town, hidden deep within the forest, wouldn’t bring my mate to me. I had to go and find her. I had to make her mine.
As a former foster child, I never had real family, no roots. I’d always felt like something was missing, so I worked hard on helping others. My mobile medical van was where my passion lay. It’s how I made sure no one else felt helpless.
But when my van was broken into, and my safety compromised, it was a big bear shifting male who came to the rescue.
Oli said I was his. He claimed I was his mate. He seemed certain of it just by looking at me. It was insanity, but I couldn’t deny the pull I felt for him, the way my body craved his.
Pushing him away wasn’t an option, not when he was always there, watching me, making sure I was protected. And it was that need inside of me, the one that grew and consumed me, that finally had me giving in. I soon realized being mated to a bear shifter meant he was grumpy, protective, possessive, and wanted only one thing.
Bethany hadn’t known what to do at first—being mated to a shifter—one who was grouchy and burly and made no apologies for how rugged he really was. But she wanted me, my sweet little human mate who could have brought a beast like me to my knees with just a look. I’d wanted nothing more than to throw her over my shoulder and take her back to my lair like a caveman.
But I let her take the lead, even if my bear wasn’t happy, even if the alpha in me wanted to have my way with her right then and there. And I would have my way with her. All the ways that counted, in fact.
I’d claim her, mark her, and before it was all said and done, there’d be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Bethany was owned by a grizzly.
I was instantly obsessed.
I had to have her. She let me touch her, dance with her, move with her. But that wasn’t enough.
I didn’t know her name, but I wasn’t letting her get away. And it seemed fate had plans for us.
A chance run-in the next day, a misunderstanding, has our paths crossing once more. She could act like she was indifferent toward me, but I saw the truth. I saw it in her eyes, in the way her pupils dilated, in her body language.
And when we came together it would be explosive, consuming. What she didn’t know but would soon find out was that I’d marked, claimed her.
And once I licked it… it was mine.
