Bad decisions make for the best stories…and hopefully, lead to a little love where we least expect it.

My writing career started one Fourth of July after a night full of hair metal and too many blueberry drinks. I had a dream about a girl trying to find her way in Las Vegas that was so vivid, I moved there so I could write her story. Later, I realized that Showgirls was probably on in the background when I’d fallen asleep that night, but Because the Night was born.

I love mythical creatures like shifters, vampires, and musicians. Now back in the Boston area, I work as a makeup artist for film and television. When I’m not working, I’m watching football, trying to make my house look like a Pinterest board, or planning my next adventure.

The Alaska Bloodhounds are the newest team in the Continental Football Association. These wild shifters are rough and ready for the season.

They only need one thing: women.

Do you have what it takes to be a Real Werewife?

In this episode--

Sebastian Connall spent the last seven years running—from his twin brother, who kicked him out of his pack, from his wolf, and toward his chance to play football at the professional level. He thought his chance at having a destined mate disappeared when he lost his pack until a quirky travel blogger awakens his wolf.

Naomi Hart has her own agenda, and it’s not hooking up with a football player on a reality show. An all-expenses-paid trip to Alaska is a golden opportunity for her travel blog. But when a smokin’ hot werewolf with amber eyes and a chequered past approaches her at the Real Werewife party, she’ll reconsider her commitment-phobe ways.

Love is the one game Sebastian doesn't know how to play. And his brother won't play by pack rules. He already gave Sebastian one chance to leave Alaska alive. But this time, win or lose, Sebastian is done running.

Sex, blood, and rock n’ roll.

Immortal Dilemma is the hottest show on the Las Vegas Strip, and Tristan Trevosier is their biggest star. But to me, he’s the guy who broke my heart and then showed up on stage claiming to be a vampire.

Now I fear it might be true.

The true darkness of Tristan’s world terrifies me, but when I end up chasing after a vampire, dating his enemy, and getting hunted by his creator, I realize the only person who will get me into trouble—is me.

Note from Kristen:


Because the Night has undergone a total revamp! The original story was published in 2014. This reedited version still contains all Callie’s bad decisions. They make for the best stories, after all.

Sex, Blood And Rock n' Roll

Immortal Dilemma is the hottest band in the Las Vegas vampire rock scene. They draw insatiable fans from around the globe, thanks to a supernatural attraction called Bloodlust. Tristan craved such an opportunity to fill his empty mortal life, and now he has eternity to earn his place along the legends of rock n roll debauchery.

Callie always feared that Tristan’s excesses would get him into trouble, but she never thought they’d lead him to immortality. To reconnect with him, she must weave her way through a world not only she had no idea existed, but does not welcome her.

Blade turned down a spot in Immortal Dilemma after learning what he must sacrifice for that lifestyle. He finds Callie a refreshing change from the girls in the vampire rock scene. When Callie drags Blade back into the world of Immortal Dilemma, his resistance drives her into the waiting arms of Tristan, who shows her the true meaning of Bloodlust.

But the very things that Callie fights so hard to save are the very things that fight to destroy her.
