Wake Up Call

I love my characters, what author doesn’t? The Omegas, my very own pack of geeky werewolves, didn’t have an alpha to follow. They lived together as a happy unit until challenged by a larger local pack. How they survived this conflict is in book one of The Vanguards series so I won’t give away too many details. I’m here today to answer the question I’ve heard repeatedly since The Omegas released. “What about Eric? You can’t leave him alone.”

They’re right, I couldn’t. For months I tried to find him a potential mate. Wracked my brain, introduced him to a few girls I created but NO. He’d cross his arms and deny each candidate. Come on! I cried there’s got to be someone you at least like. I almost gave up.

Then one night, during a long hot bath, I pondered writing a book about Sugar’s twin, Spice, instead since Eric wouldn’t cooperate. I went to bed and dreamed. A women’s voice spoke to me and told me how hard life had been since she deserted her younger twin. I awoke at two AM to bolt from my bed, trip over my sleeping fat hound dog, and write the first chapter of The Alpha.

My husband came to check on me about three AM, called me crazy, but didn’t drag me back to bed.

Eric approved of Spice and finally admitted to me he’d been crushing on her since high school but never had the courage to do anything about it…until now.

Someone is about to get some Spice in his life.

Spice has nothing but the clothes on her back when she returns to Chicago. She’s looking for a better life, and that means reuniting with her estranged twin sister, Sugar. She isn’t thrilled to find out Sugar’s boyfriend is a vampire. But then she meets Eric, once the bottle-cap-glasses wearing nerd next door – now grown into the kind of man she’d love to snuggle with on this cold winter night…and he’s offered her his room in Sugar’s house.

Eric can’t believe Spice has returned. He’d given up hope of ever seeing her again, let alone having her stare at him as if he’s sex on a stick. But now that all of his fantasies for them are coming true, reality rears her ugly head and Eric must tell Spice his intimate secret; he’s actually an Alpha werewolf looking for his mate and he thinks he’s found her.
