Caught in the fallout of a rare disease, and members of opposing packs, Zander and Marrok’s future as fated mates hangs in the balance.

Blurb

Alexander Kingston wasn’t destined to lead the East Territory pack, but fate had other ideas. Becoming the next Alpha in his dead brother’s place and managing his father’s expectations is a challenge, one that’s only getting harder with time. When his father, the Alpha is reluctant to accept outside assistance when one of their own is afflicted with a deadly blood disorder, Zander must take a stand against his father or lose another pack member to The Slow Death.

Marrok Blain is part of the North Territory pack. With his unique knowledge of The Slow Death, the debilitating progressive disorder that slowly kills with every shift, he offers help, knowing he’ll be met with resistance from his friend’s pack. What he doesn’t expect is the overwhelming pull to the stubborn yet undeniably gorgeous son of the East Territory Alpha.

Four packs coexisting with rising tensions, and a genetic disorder that reminds them of the common thread that connects them all. Zander and Marrok are the key to an uneasy alliance, or all the packs will suffer. Especially Zander, who discovers he’s got one more deadly fight to face.

Excerpt 

“I need to speak to the alpha!” Marrok tried to move past the other man who stood slightly taller than his own six foot two.

“Sorry, he’s busy. Can I help you?” He stepped right in front of Marrok again.

“I want to speak to the alpha!” he gritted out, his patience gone.

“What’s going on out here?”

The power of the alpha was immediately felt and Marrok fought and lost as he tried not to bow his head in submission and respect.

“I want to know why you’re not doing more to find Grady a donor.”

The guy who’d tried to stop Marrok stayed close, his eyes focused on him. Marrok shot him a look, and when their eyes locked a force more powerful than even the command of the alpha rippled across his senses. It was there and gone so fast he didn’t have time to put a name to it, so ignoring the shocked expression that crossed the other man’s face, he forced his eyes back to the alpha.

“I want some answers, and if I can help, I want to be involved. Grady’s important to me, and if you’re not willing to help him I will. There’s no chance in hell I’ll let him die without a fight.”

Marrok glanced again at the man who still had his eyes locked on him and now had his arms crossed in obvious annoyance, before looking back to the alpha.

“You must be Marrok. I’m Andreas, Alpha of East Territory. This is my son Alexander.”

Marrok looked between the two men and saw the resemblance but didn’t care who the guy was. Whatever had passed between them didn’t matter. His friend came first, and the fact that they had let him decline so much before seeking help pissed him off.

“Why didn’t you reach out sooner? You know we’re close to finding a cure, but even without a cure our registry might help him find a donor.”

The alpha looked to his son and Alexander looked away, out of frustration or shame, Marrok wasn’t sure. He turned to Marrok again. “We’ve done all we can. Don’t you dare storm in here and talk to me this way. I spoke to your grandfather and agreed to see you as a courtesy, but I will not listen to you imply that I don’t care about our pack members. Now if you’ll kindly make an appointment—”

“Great.” The word dripped with sarcasm. He didn’t try to hide his frustration, and he wouldn’t play nice to appease the feelings of a stranger, no matter who they were. Both of them were responsible for Grady’s situation as far as he was concerned, and both of them would pay if Grady succumbed to TSD. Marrok knew he couldn’t hurt them physically, but he could withhold any information and data that would help them and their pack in the future. “How about you let me know when you’re finally ready to save your pack member?”

He realized he’d been staring at Alexander since the alpha had spoken, and he also realized he hated whatever was between them. Alexander narrowed his eyes, and Marrok knew he felt the same. He took one more look at the most beautiful blue eyes he’d ever seen, before turning on his heel and storming from the building.

Mother Blues

 

Mystery / Literary Fiction

Date Published: September 30, 2021

Publisher: OTF Literary



What if your childhood harbored a dire warning about your future? What if your life and the lives of dozens of others, including your future child, depended on you deciphering that warning before it is too late?

Mother Blues is about the maternal relationships we never knew existed, the evil we never expect, and the redemption we never think possible. Subversively feminist and environmental, this is a novel about mothers: those we have loved and lost, those we have never known, and those who have always been there for us whether we have realized it or not. And while this is not a novel about blues music, the blues is everywhere in this story, both grounding it in history and pushing it forward in a slow, rhythmic ache.

If there is one maternal presence that binds together the characters of this novel, living and dead, it is the blues itself. Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Etta James, Big Mama Thornton, Mahalia Jackson, and all the timeless mothers to that quintessentially American genre are here, a soulful Greek chorus singing from the shadows, warning and imploring, offering hope, and bearing witness to lives adrift and in danger of capsizing.

I had two rules in life:

Never fall in love.
Never have sex with a student.

As a college preceptor, you’re not supposed to fraternize with your pupils, but what happens when you get a taste of the forbidden before you know it isn’t supposed to be yours?

That night at Brian’s bachelor party was epic. We danced, I dominated, and she left. One night, no further contact, no regrets, just how I liked it—until she walked into my algebra class the next week, and I knew the two rules I had in place had to change.

Never fall in love.
Never get caught having sex with a student.

EXCERPT

There were times when Raphael and I danced together, our bodies twisting and turning as more songs continued to play. I could feel Cas watching us, but I didn’t care. I was having a good time with him. At least he wasn’t an asshole. The DJ announced she was taking a few-minute break, so I walked back over to Anna.
“Anna, where’s the bathroom?”
“It’s back there,” she said, pointing toward the back of the room.
“Thanks. I’ll be right back, Raph.”
As I went inside the room and closed the door behind me, locking it, so no one else barged in, someone pounded on the door as soon as I finished.
“Sorry, occupied.”
“Taylin, open the door right now.” The familiar voice stopped me in my tracks.
“Go away, Cas,” I said, washing my hands and looking at myself in the mirror to buy me some time.
“Open the door before I break it down!” he yelled. Is this guy for real?
I unlocked the door, not wanting him to cause a huge scene.
“What do you want?” I huffed, shocked by the audacity he had.
He pushed his way in, locking the door behind us. He cornered me and placed his hands on the walls beside me. “What are you doing here?” His eyes narrowed at me.
Having him this close did something to my body. I wasn’t afraid, but slightly turned on.
“I don’t have to tell you shit.”
“Answer me!” he demanded.
I held my ground with him, looking him in his eyes. I wanted to give him such a hard time, and make him pay for everything he had done, but something inside of me obliged. “Your boy, Jay, is dating my best friend, Anna. He invited her, and she brought me. Not that it even matters.”
He went quiet and looked me up and down. “It fucking matters. I’ve missed you,” he admitted. His head hung low.
“I don’t care. Get out!” I said, tears blurring my vision.
“No.” He tilted my chin up, staring intensely into my eyes. “I won’t. You shouldn’t be here with him.”
“Then who should I be here with, Cas?” I pushed him back, trying to create some space between us.
“Me.” What a joke.
“Well, you’ve ignored me for how many months now?”
“I had to.”
“Who told you that you had to?”
“It’s complicated, Taylin. Fuck! I just—”
I cut him off, I didn’t even want to hear whatever excuse he was getting ready to say to me. “A simple text would have sufficed, but no, you couldn’t even do that!” I yelled, tears sliding down my cheek.
“I’m sorry, but I’m gonna take back what’s mine. Tell me to stop if you don’t want it.” His eyes darkened with desire.
I couldn’t tell if it was the alcohol or me craving his touch, but I choked out, “I want it.”
Our lips crashed together as his hands roamed freely all over my body. He clasped my hands together behind my back and propped my ass up on the sink, moving my dress out of the way for easy access.
“You will never dance with another man ever again. You got it?”
“Then don’t piss me off,” I sassed with a raised brow.
He tightened his grip on my wrists behind me. “Do you understand what I said, Ms. Bradford?”
“Yes.” I nodded, completely breathless.
“Good, girl.”

Two world’s collided, igniting forbidden passion like no other.

Can a marriage survive manipulation and lies?

She was hellbent on making her father disown her. Her rebellious attitude and the color that marred her snowflake skin was proof of that, so I used that knowledge to my benefit.

I promised her hate and blood. Instead, what she got was my heart and a weak man on his knees in front of her.

She was never supposed to be my bride or my anything. She was the daughter of a rival family, not even of Italian descent. She was from a completely different culture.

Sasha Nikolayev was my vice. I was an addict for her. I would have said and done anything to chain her to me—so that’s what I did.
