The Alpha's

The Blood Bar Chronicles, #1

The Alpha’s is a fun, entertaining read. The four authors are able to transition from one couple’s view to another quite seamlessly. I am looking forward to the next book in the series, which is due out in September 2012.

The Alpha’s is four short stories following four friends from the Wicked Ladies of Fiction monthly meeting, this time held at the Blood Bar. Little do the women realize that their lives are about to change forever and that the amazing romance they write in their stories really can come true.

Ana has finally broken away from her mothers stifling ways and has decided to let lose. When she finds herself faced with amazing possibilities she must decide what is worth standing for.

Dizzy is a very busy lady and as an unbelievable future opens up for her she must use her knowledge, and her new position as Beacon, in an upcoming battle that will pit the supernatural world against itself.

Josie is a historian and has to use her knowledge and abilities to keep her friends safe, fortunately her love of history leaves her open to the possibility of learning of the past in a more intimate fashion.

Noelle and her daughter, Hope, have been struggling with Hope’s health as is continues to decline. As the truth of Hope’s parentage comes to light Noelle must learn to lean on the one man she never thought she would see again. Hope’s wellbeing is instrumental in the coming days and Noelle and her friends, along with the men they find themselves drawn to will have to find a way to keep Hope alive.

Book Blurb for The Alpha's

When the Wicked Ladies of Fiction meet up in a Scottish bar they don’t expect a night filled with danger, lust and hot supernatural men…

Perfect Timing by Arya Grey

David Malm had given up on love, but on a trip through time he meets Josie. She reignites a lost fire in his soul.

Josie McNair may be all fire on the outside, but her lack of self-confidence has her insides twisted over meeting her writing group. She begins to realize there are more creatures in the world than she first suspected and finds herself thrown into a life where time has no meaning.

Time-traveling peace-keeper David Malm could never believe in love again. When Henri instructed him in 3042 to look in at the Blood Bar on this particular night in 2011, he didn't envision it turning into a supernatural disaster, let alone be in the throws of passion with a beautiful stranger. Josie reignited something in him he'd thought he'd lost forever, and he would do anything to keep her safe.

Alpha’s Vixen by Cherie Nicholls

From IT geek to Mystical Beacon in one night; not the usual WLF meeting it has to be said.

Dora "Dizzy" Williamson is a busy lady, but she finally makes time to meet some of her writing group in a new bar. Surely a couple of hours with the ladies wouldn't be too bad, right?

Xander de Rista is CEO and alpha to his pack, so being drawn to a new bar that prickled his fur doesn't sit too well with him. Tonight feels different; there are too many supernaturals in one place, but one human stands out to him. One he intends to claim and protect, because hell isn't just breaking loose, it is coming to town.

Saving Hope by Doris O’Connor

Fate cannot be denied. When an ancient vampire finds time catching up with him, can he protect the only woman capable of thawing his heart?

Noelle has only one thing on her mind: how to save her sick daughter from a mysterious illness. A night out with the girls ought to be a distraction, but it turns out to change her life forever.

Fate is not something Henri, a two-thousand-year-old vampire, takes lightly. When he steps into the bar teeming with supernaturals, there is only one scent he finds—Noelle, the one woman he’d never forgotten—and she holds a secret that could cause a war. With time finally ticking in his ear, there is only one decision he can make—he has to protect her or die trying.

In Her Element by Jorja Lovett

When quiet Ana Chapman meets Fire Elemental, Zanaan, at the Blood Bar, a night of hot sex makes her realize just what she's been missing.

For the first time in her life, Ana Chapman is ready for a little excitement. Escaping her mother's tyranny in Belfast for one weekend in Edinburgh to meet her online writers' group seems more than enough to cope with. But her visit to the Blood Bar changes everything. Spontaneous public orgasms, supernatural beings, and teleportation weren't on her agenda for the trip. Neither was losing her virginity.

Zanaan is a Fire Elemental, who most humans can't see. When the shy Irish lass locks eyes with him in the bar, he's drawn to her, and this time it isn't the Salamander legend spurring his chase to bed a mortal. After a night of passion with Ana, he feels the effects immediately—he's losing his powers and becoming human. It's what he always wanted. Isn't it?
