The Alpha has landed! The Alpha’s Heart (Wilde Creek Two) is out now!
When I think that the series began last summer with the scene from the first book, when Luke is defending Eveny against the wolves, I can’t believe that now Acksel’s story is out! I had no idea that I would enjoy Wilde Creek and it’s characters so much. It’s exactly my favorite kind of place – a small town where everyone knows everyone.
I wouldn’t be anywhere with a lot of awesome help. From Alexis at Word Vagabond and Amanda at The Picky Bitch for editing, to Ramona at Romance Book Cover Designs, to Joyce who beta-read, to Carla at Book Monster Promotion who took the book on a fabulous tour, to the Shifter Babes Street Team who pimped the book until the cows came home…thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your support.
To celebrate the day, I wanted to share an excerpt that is one of my favorites, a scene where Brynn is making a few demands to Acksel. It has one of my hands-down favorite lines in the whole book…”how easy do you think I am?” I just love when heroines tell their heroes “how it’s going to be” and put them in their place.

“We need to talk,” she said, straightening and folding her arms across her chest. It made her lush breasts plump up and strain against the material of the t-shirt. She cleared her throat when he didn’t say anything.
“Sorry. Sure. Want to sit down?”
“No, I don’t think so. I’m a little pissed, Acksel.”
“Uh,” he started, but she raised a hand for silence and he closed his mouth.
“I realized what’s been bugging me. You never asked me to be your mate; you just talk about us as if we’re already a couple. I’m pretty sure that things don’t work that way in the forest, so I think you’re taking advantage of me being human and not knowing the score.”
“I am not taking advantage of you,” he huffed.
“Really? So when was it exactly that you asked me if I wanted to be your mate? Because I don’t remember you doing that.”
A low growl rumbled in his chest and she waved her hand and rolled her eyes. “Oh, please. You know I’m right.”
Damn it. She was right. He’d made an assumption and it hadn’t occurred to him to actually ask her. Maybe because he’d been afraid of what her answer would be.
He inhaled deeply and exhaled slowly. “Brynn, would you—”
“Hold it!” she shouted, putting both hands up. “Are you serious? You’re going to just ask me now? How easy do you think I am? Wait, wait. Don’t answer that. What I mean is that you have to earn me, buddy, and I don’t come cheap. You might have been able to get me into your bed six weeks ago without all the fuss, but that ship has sailed.”
