Book Spotlight: Alpha’s Truth by Rebecca Royce

I’m thrilled to feature this new release by my friend Rebecca Royce today! Alpha’s Truth is the second book in the Fallen Alpha’s series. I loved the first one, but I have to tell you, the teaser for Alpha’s Truth at the end of Alpha’s Strength really spoke to me. This book on my e-reader now, and I think I’m going to like it even better than the first. No matter what else happens, Rebecca always manages to surprise me with her plots. Digging in….!


 

Alpha's Truth by Rebecca RoyceAlpha’s Truth

Montana Alpha Beaux Nelson believes in living his life the way werewolves were meant to—as naturally and free as possible. He honors the moon with every hunt and breath in his body. When he discovers his true mate is the healer of another pack, he’s determined nothing will come between them—not even her kidnapping. Pursuing her across the continent, Beaux will take any risk to claim the woman meant for him…but surviving her rejection is another matter.

 

Lake Fennell has never thrived as a healer should, her gift acts out, she changes others without their permission and has failed to save those precious to her. When she discovers Beaux may very well be her true mate, she flees rather than face the possibility. In her haste, she falls into the arms of the True Believers. Months of torture later, she can barely believe it when she wakes to find herself with the one man she shouldn’t want and can never have. In order to save them both, she must leave her true mate, knowing she might not leave his heart in tact. But if she doesn’t do what she was born to do everything will be lost…including the world she’s fought the hardest for.

ExcerptAlpha's Truth - Paranormal Romance Book by Rebecca Royce

The moon shone over the land, illuminating the night-drenched terrain before him as though it were daylight instead of minutes past midnight. Beaux Nelson padded forward on four feet, his nose lifted to sample the winter air. In his wolf form, he tasted all the flavors on the breeze. The snow on the ground possessed a gentle sweetness, winter’s kiss not yet disrupted by the pollution of humans. Undoubtedly, they would soon spoil the purity of the season’s white blanket.

What to Read – Fantasy and Paranormal

told you I missed a lot of releases.  I’ve got three books vying for attention on my fantasy/sci-fi/paranormal stack. The first is actually an anthology (5 novellas!) of awesome paranormal romance from Fated Desires.  The second two are two very different, very special offerings from one of my very favorite authors, Skyler White.

Ever After - Paranormal Romance Anthology by Carrie Ann Ryan, Rebecca Royce, Lia Davis, Marie Harte, Leia Shaw

EVER AFTER

by Rebecca RoyceCarrie Ann RyanMarie HarteLia Davis and Leia Shaw

If you love paranormal romance – this bundle is for you!  Five sexy novellas from five bestselling authors.  Need I say more?

Most of the stories in this bundle are from series you may already know and love (like Dante’s Circle by Carrie Ann Ryan).  But you also have a chance to get a  jump start on a sexy new werewolf series by Rebecca Royce.  Do you love werewolves? I do!

BLURB

From five bestselling authors comes five brand new novellas sure to heat up the night.

From Carrie Ann Ryan‘s Dante’s Circle series, a demon from the fiery depths of hell must make his choice to follow in the footsteps of his father or love the submissive wolf who lays claim to his heart in His Choice.

From Marie Harte‘s Beasts of Burden, Eira, a fierce valkyrie, has spent fifty years trying to get a rise out of her goddess’s guardians. But when the battle-cat shifters give her what she wants, can she handle the heat–and the danger–that comes from loving them?

From Rebecca Royce’s brand new series, the Alphas of each werewolf Pack are on the brink of war. Travis Michaels will use all in his power to keep innocent Lilliana out of danger and into his arms…away from rival Alpha Cyrus Fennell.

From Lia Davis‘s Ashwood Falls series, buried pain, old lies, and dangerous secrets aren’t enough to keep the sparks from flying as Sarah Mathews and rebel leader, Damian Palmer, try to survive a new threat against their race.

From Leia Shaw‘s Shadows of Destiny series, a war is brewing in the supernatural world. Rebel shifter Dalton’s only passion is protecting the colony, and flirtatious misfit, Eden, is a distraction he can’t afford. But as danger approaches, he learns that underestimating the sexy little wolf is a big mistake.

The next two books are from Skyler White.  Now, you would think I would have devoured these already because Skyler is one of my favorite authors and her books are an auto-buy for me.  I have a curious relationship with them though.  I horde them.  I usually buy as soon as they come out – frequently in hardcover. So I  have  them. Then I wait for the perfect moment to read them.  I anticipate the pleasure.  I draw out the moment when I will crack open the cover.  When I finally start reading, the going is frequently slower than with other books.  I need time to wallow around in the prose, the imagery, the layers.

Yeah, I know. I’m totally weird.  You should just buy them and read them.  You will love them.  Really.

 

Offerings:: Lands of Sex and Magic - Erotic fantasy novella by Skyler White

OFFERINGS:: LANDS OF SEX & MAGIC EPISODE 1

by Skyler White

I shamelessly stole the book cover from Julie Kenner’s blog. It is the original cover.  The new one is more discreet (because Amazon can’t distinguish between art and porn).  I prefer this one, however.   I was at a retreat with Julie and Skyler earlier this year.  In the same critique circle even (and how did that happen?).  Vivien Jackson was also there along with a few other people you haven’t heard of yet, but will. (And yep, now I’m just name-dropping.) I promise I breathed very deeply during the session to see if I could suck in a tiny bit of the talent that was floating around.  Anyway, the point I’m getting to is that we all loved (LOVED) the little glimpse we got of this striking bit of erotica. Like her cover, Skyler’s writing is art rather than porn.  So, this is on my TBR because I haven’t read the full, final novella yet – but I can highly recommend it just on the early draft of the first pages. Get it. Get it now!

BLURB:

In two lands, worlds apart, night offers two women the first whispers of their power. 
In the Arcai, where all religion and politics are rooted in sex, young Cessaire Oghan offers her body for initiation into ancient rituals of magic and desire.

In America, a powerful but secretive business magnate offers designer Maxine MacAllister work whose professional and emotional scope she does not know and may not want.

As night deepen, both women, the mythic and the modern, will need all the sacred power and erotic wisdom pleasure brings, and more.

THE INCREMENTALISTS

by Steven Brust and Skyler White

Skyler White, Steven Brust, a secret society of immortals – do you really need any more?  I am hooked, hooked, hooked.

This is another one I got just a tiny little peek at during the early stages.  At that time, I had no idea who Skye’s collaborator was.  After reading her bit, I believe my comment was along the lines of, “Your partner better up his game.”  (Sorry Mr. Brust – I’m sure I’ll like your bits just as well).  If you’re more of a traditional sci-fi fan, this might be your best pick from this post.

BLURB:

“Secret societies, immortality, murder mysteries and Las Vegas all in one book? Shut up and take my money.” —John Scalzi

The Incrementalists—a secret society of two hundred people with an unbroken lineage reaching back forty thousand years. They cheat death, share lives and memories, and communicate with one another across nations, races, and time. They have an epic history, an almost magical memory, and a very modest mission: to make the world better, just a little bit at a time. Their ongoing argument about how to do this is older than most of their individual memories.

Phil, whose personality has stayed stable through more incarnations than anyone else’s, has loved Celeste—and argued with her—for most of the last four hundred years. But now Celeste, recently dead, embittered, and very unstable, has changed the rules—not incrementally, and not for the better. Now the heart of the group must gather in Las Vegas to save the Incrementalists, and maybe the world.

“Watch Steven Brust. He’s good. He moves fast. He surprises you. Watching him untangle the diverse threads of intrigue, honor, character and mayhem from amid the gears of a world as intricately constructed as a Swiss watch is a rare pleasure.” —Roger Zelazny
