Fierce Northern teleports onto the front entrance of the Wolff Dynasty Estate, in front of the massive stained wooden doors.

He looks at his side as Prince Connor Dracostar teleports right next to him. He frowns at him and he waves his hand around to insulate them from the world in a clear shield.
“Connor, I don’t know if it’s going to work. I don’t want you to force Princess Josephine Draco. Don’t expect her to fall into your arms.” Fierce raises one eyebrow, glaring at him.

Connor slides his right-hand fingers through his black hair, closing his beautiful turquoise eyes.

Hell, this is my only opportunity to make her fall in love with me. I had to beg Fierce to convince the Draco Royal Council to give me a few cycle segments to court Princess Josephine here on earth realm.

Fierce moves and crosses his arms waiting for him. “Are you ready?”

Prince Connor opens his beautiful turquoise eyes nodding. “Yes Sir, I’m ready. I would like to ask you to please introduce me as Dominic, my second name. I don’t want her to be on the defense. I would like to have the opportunity to court Princess Josephine because I need to claim my dragonette.”

Fierce nods, grins at him. “Wow, that’s a great idea and it might work. So, Dominic is your second name?”

Connor grins nodding. “Yeah, Dominic, but nobody really uses it, but it’s engraved on my birth stone at the palace.”

Fierce nods, he turns to look out into the woods. He rubs his chin with his right hand. He turns to look at Connor.

“I would suggest that you don’t address her so formally. She’s called Blush on the team and maybe it would give you the opportunity to talk to her.”
‘DAMNED BY DESIRE:THE SEVENTH SON’ by bestselling author P. Mattern!


Every 7th generation the 7th son of Lucifer has a chance at redemption. Jagger Luis Banes is that 7th son, but he has no intention of renouncing his devilish ways until he sets eyes on young Neon Kravitz in the Paradise Club one night.

Jagger will find that he might have control over his band, but not his heart;

Neon will discover that you can’t outrun the DEVIL once you’re in his sights!

Chapter One: Flasher
Copyright by p.mattern 2018 all Rights Reserved
It was a slow night in Paradise, but Jagger didn’t care. He loved making music, and whether there was a large audience on hand to appreciate it or not was beside the point. He loved being onstage with his eclectic band which included two fallen angels and a human.

He was the lead singer, and he was insanely good at it. His range stupefied even the most discerning and hard core rockers, and he composed nearly all the songs.

Having the name he had didn’t hurt either. He had been named after a client that his own father had bequeathed an extra long life and a mega helping of luck to that happened to be the lead singer for Diabolus’ favorite all time rock band.

In truth the band had been around for centuries and was still going strong in their 50th year, more popular than ever.

The first time he noticed Neon he was on stage, in the middle of a set. There were quite a few couples doing their thing on the dance floor, alternately jumping wildly or grinding against each other in an attempt to mimic a horizontal act in a vertical manner, and suddenly time seemed to slow down a fraction of a second, and the sea of bodies parted, and he saw her.

SHIFTERS FUREVER by bestselling author C.D. Gorri!

Snow Angel
Dr. Rayne Davis is dedicated to her patients and Packmates, the only thing missing from this Wolf's life is someone to share it with. That’s all about to change when she takes off for a weekend getaway and finds herself at the door of the one man who'd caught her attention, but managed to get away, Cael Evangelos.

His Winter Mate

Claire Freemont finds herself stuck with the one man she’d rather avoid, Mike Bellamy. He lost his wife and unborn child years ago, but his heart still bears the scar. If only she could stop her attraction to the taciturn bar owner! When a severe winter storm shuts down the local roads and highways Claire is left stranded!
Will Mike turn her out into the cold or will things heat up? 

Home For The Howlidays 

Cassie DeMarco is headed back home after failing to hit it big in the city. Her humiliation triples when her well-meaning stepmom signs her up to attend the “Singles in Maccon City Annual Holiday Ball” to find that special someone to share the season with.
Dr. David Evangelos made ER Chief at just thirty-four years old. He has money, a house on the beach, a sports car that he loves, and a promising future in Maccon City. But there is one thing he’s missing, a mate to share it with!
Mistletoe and magic conspire to bring these two together in this steamy holiday short!

“What do you mean, engaged? To who?”

“I didn’t say we were engaged, I said we were thinking about it! And I met him online. A new dating app,” Claire answered her friend, Winifred Falk, formerly Castillo, between bites of her salmon avocado roll.

She loved sushi. The friends had agreed to meet at the new Asian fusion restaurant on Main Street in Maccon City, NJ. Roll Over, was small and clean, and the food was great.

Claire took a sip from her mango-passion bubble tea and sighed. She knew she’d have to answer more questions, but she shook her head before Fred could start in on her. Her happily married friend was also a Werewolf, and she could almost hear her questions before she voiced them.

“The app was designed by Graves Enterprises. You have heard of our very own Wolf Guard, Randall Graves, and his software development company?”

“Of course!” Fred agreed. The Macconwood Pack was the most powerful Wolf Pack in the Western hemisphere and the most technologically advanced. The thanks for that went mostly to one of the Alpha’s Wolf Guard, Randall Graves. He was an absolute genius.

“He’s married now, right?” Fred asked.

“Yes, his wife is a very nice woman, Tulla is her name. I met them at an event for Lane Liquors a few months ago.”

“How is your job by the way?”

“Well, we’ve got the next product in our Seasons line, Winter Bite, all ready for its debut. Thank God, I am not the liasion between Lane Liquors and The Thirsty Dog anymore. I happily relinquished that job to David, Mr. Lane’s assistant.”

“Oh yeah, how’s he working out.”

“He’s still new, but getting there.”

“Alright Claire, spill, who is this guy?”

“He’s a Wolf too, new to the Pack. He comes from Russia. His name is Igor. Anyway, he’s looking for a wife to-”

“You are not marrying someone for a green card are you?”

ABSOLUTE ALPHAS by bestselling author Amanda Kimberley!

Fallon kept life easy because all that mattered was to protect her family as pack leader. Love for a mate only creates heartache, something she’s had to live with since Gavin left the pack.
Gavin knew his life was complicated being an alpha and didn’t want to make things worse by claiming a mate of his own. As far as he was concerned only one woman had his heart and his pack left hers long ago.
When a civil war ensues between the packs Fallon comes face to face with Gavin and has to decide between her love for him and the love of her pack.

Sample of 


She tried to focus her mind on breathing in and out. It was the only thing that kept her from falling apart since Gavin left the pack. She shouldn’t miss him this much since it’s the one-year anniversary of his leaving. Fallon thought she could avoid the pain today of all days since her father, Rogan was performing the ceremony for her to become pack leader.

This sort of thing was an honor bestowed to the first-born male of the family but she was his only pup. And since Rogan was nearing 250 years of age he wanted the pack to be lead by her, the younger generation. They had fresh eyes when it came to dealing with the apposing packs and this would prove beneficial in the civil war. Many werewolves found it hard to play nicely with the other packs. Being an alpha lead to certain airs and sometimes those airs were tested.

Rogan, who was one of the more timid alpha elders was finding his age to be detrimental towards the new thoughts of these younger wolves and decided that his daughter should take the lead now that she had just turned 20.

Fallon looked into her bathroom mirror and mouthed the words you can do this before she put on her bones. It was a simple gesture and an heirloom from her great grandmother who took the trek from Ireland to the US long ago.

The heirloom had power and Fallon often tapped into it when she needed the strength that only her ancestors could provide but she wished she didn’t have to rely so much on the power that exuded from them.

It’s now or never Fallon. You’ve got this.

Down by the arches, underneath the fly over I handed out sandwiches. “Here you are, here you go,” I repeated to bundles of blankets.

“Thanks,” muffled replies responded. 

The noise of traffic from above didn’t matter to those sleeping rough. As I held my hand out with another, ‘Here you go,’ an arm shot out and a hand locked around my wrist. I squealed and tried to pull back but the grip was firm. 

A shadowy figure rose in front of me.

“Hello little girl,” said a voice as I tried to wrench my arm back again. He was wearing a tatty black woolen coat with sleeves that were too short revealing grimy hands. His hair was thick and matted, sticking up like a perm gone wrong. His beard was also matted and his wild eyes told me he was on something. I gasped, my heart racing, my mouth suddenly dry.

“I eat little girls,” he said stepping out of the darkness as I stepped backwards.

“Let go, please let go,” I whimpered, knowing he wasn’t going to.

“Come with me, little precious.” He pulled me to the black shadows of an old building.

“No, please. Stop! Let go! Let go!” My pleading fell on deaf ears.

Out of the darkness came a voice. “Let her go.”

Pivoting round, my captor growled, “Says who?” 

“Let her go,” the voice said again.

There was a movement, and another voice joined him. “Leave her alone, we said.”

“Oh yeah, two of you now. Wanna take me on, do you?” The man’s eyes lit up. “I’m up for a good fight.”

Looking round wildly, I couldn’t see anything. I was so terrified, I sobbed.
I clutched my red shoulder bag and glanced down at my matching shoes. I felt good in my outfit. With this handsome guy by my side, what could go wrong? 

The minute the door opened, I knew I’d made a mistake. The other women were all casually dressed. Tailored jeans and cut off pants with smart casual shoes. 

Kelly did the introductions, and I shook hands with them all. I knew they were judging me, I could see it in their eyes; this stupid overly dressed girl 

Their dazzling false smiles told me they’d had their teeth done. A row of false eyelashes, molded brows, and painted nails stood in front of me with blouses and tops that were made of silk and cashmere. My stomach dropped.

#NEWRELEASE from #USAToday #bestselling authors @LilyLuchesi & @FaithMarlow!


A soul is a heavy burden to bear.

There’s a gala celebrating the city and many notable celebrities are attending, including a rock star, a socialite, a baseball player, and an entertainment reporter. Each of them is notable in their own right, and each one holding a secret.
When they all get stuck in an elevator together after the gala is over, they think that that is the worst thing that could happen to them...until the doors finally open.
It’s a battle for the ultimate prize: their souls and the souls of everyone else on Earth. Can they save the world, or will these disparate individuals kill each other first?
The world as they knew it has gone, now they have poppies attached to their chests and are facing down soulless friends, family, and strangers, including a crotchety old woman and a former drag queen.


Jake and Xander came up behind the women, and Jake then saw what the others were seeing. Or rather, what the others didn’t see. It was the middle of the day on Saturday, just a week from Thanksgiving in downtown Chicago. And yet the street was empty of people.

“Guys? Why do I feel like I’m about to be in an episode of The Twilight Zone?” he asked, gazing around at the empty street and shops. It didn't seem like any of them had even opened that morning, closed signs hung in every window.
“Is there a holiday we forgot about?” Xander asked.
Rachael scoffed. “Places stay open on Christmas these days. Trust me; there’s no holiday. But should we check the news? Perhaps something's going on that we missed in the elevator.” She looked at Lianne. “I’m going to guess you don’t have any news apps on your phone, do you?”
Without waiting for an answer, she rummaged in her purse for her smartphone, clicking on the local news’ app. Jake looked over her shoulder as she flicked down, refreshing it. Nothing changed. It stayed with the same report from eleven the previous night, about the gala.
“Maybe it’s broken,” Jake said. “Check Twitter.”
“Thank you, peanut gallery,” Rachael said, clicking on the other app. Jake saw that she followed about eight thousand people. Yet there were no updates from anyone since eleven the previous night, central time. “Is it my connection?” She typed out a quick tweet, “Hello, is this thing on?” and it posted immediately. And why was Wifi working but not landlines or text messages?
She showed the phone’s screen to the other three who just stared.
“What could this mean?” Xander asked. “An empty street, no one online except for us, doesn’t make sense.”
Lianne shook her head. “I don’t get it. Let me call someone. See if anyone’s got an answer.” She took out her phone and pressed a few buttons, holding it to her ear. After a few minutes, she hung up. “It went to voicemail. But it’s my mom; she doesn’t always answer.”
Jake then recalled that he was supposed to be back home last night. His wife must have been worried sick about him. Taking out his phone, he was dismayed to see that there wasn’t a single text or missed call from her. Wasn’t she worried? Or even upset that he pulled an all-nighter while she was home alone with their son? And what about his band? Didn’t they wonder why he hadn’t shown up for rehearsal?
“Anybody hear from anyone?” he asked. “I mean, we’ve all got to have at least one person who would have text messaged us.”
Rachael nodded. “My editor. I was supposed to turn in my report by noon, which means he would have been hounding me by nine. But nothing.”
“Do you know how many notifications I get in an hour?” Lianne asked, preening a bit. “There’s not a single one on here.”
Xander grinned ruefully as he said, “In the off-season, she’s the only one who nags me.”
“Why you little—”
“Cool it with the antagonization,” Rachael said. “Something’s wrong here. Seriously wrong. And we need to figure out what.”
Lianne scoffed. “We’re not the police. Let them figure it out. I mean, isn’t that what we pay taxes for?”
Jake watched as Rachael cocked her head, a lock of dark hair falling across her forehead. “Huh. And here I never would have expected you to know what your taxes went for or how to pay them.”
Lianne’s mouth dropped and she was about to retort when Jake gasped. A sudden pain hit him in the center of his chest, like there was a little knife inside stabbing its way out. Everyone turned toward him, but he couldn’t be bothered with their quizzical glances.
He unbuttoned his shirt partway, the pain making his hands shake. He gasped as the stabbing sensation increased. Looking down, he saw that there was a spot on his chest, over his heart, that was bulging out, the skin stretched taut around something. Fear mingled with the pain, and he felt his heart begin to beat erratically.
“What the Hell is that?” Xander asked.
Something green poked through the skin on Jake’s chest and he screamed as the pain became nearly unbearable. Blood trickled down off of the green stem, staining his skin. But the pain was receding as he watched as the green stem began to...blossom? Like a nature film on fast-forward, a red flower began to grow, budding and blooming until it was a small red poppy, the color matching that of the blood that had been spilled.

I was tossed about in the tiny confines of Murashshahaan (Running Mate), Sheik Fahrib’s eleven meters’ sailboat. A month before the races the doctor had transported this top of the line vessel from its mooring facility in Musandam Dibba Al Hisn, the Sultanate of Oman to Acapulco; in readiness for the 1968 Summer Olympics yachting competition. Tad (his team-mate) and he had been out daily to acclimatize to the sailing conditions in this Mexican playground of the rich and famous. A week preceding the competition, my Valet and I left from Daltonbury Hall to join them. With our Assalamu Alaikum service behind us, Andy and I needed the repose, to revivify our love and friendship. Our summer vacation was spent traveling around the tranquil English countryside, soaking up the beauty of the Lake District and getting reacquainted with one another. We needed to necessitate our physical and mental bond before departing to Aldhdhib Dann ( ΩˆΩƒΨ± Ψ§Ω„Ψ°Ψ¦Ψ¨ Wolf Den) and Manarat Lilddaw’ ( Ω…Ω†Ψ§Ψ±Ψ© Ψ§Ω„ΨΆΩˆΨ‘ Beacon of Light); Tad Abdul Hafiz’s London and Riyadh residences. The both of us had a hunch that our services at our fifth household would not be as smooth sailing as compared to our previous assignments.
Much like Count Mario, Tad was a playboy at heart. His irrational and spur of the moment decisions often send those close to him into dramatic tailspins of immense proportions. It was under this circumstance I now found myself at the mercy of howling winds, roaring waves and pounding rain. Thrown repeatedly from the hull to the rear of this racing vessel. The vicious waves and torrential downpour lapped at my person. Not only did I puke up the gastronomical contents I had consumed not so long ago, but I also had to hold on for dear life in the unfortunate event I would be swept into the ocean. Seasickness had overtaken my person, and no help was available since every strong hand was working furiously to keep Murashshahaan afloat. Hard-pressed at the helm, the sheik steered his vessel away from colliding rocks while Tad and Andy held firm on either side of the riggings to steady the dinghy; in the unfortunate event that the mast should collapse under the onslaught of the ferocious winds. Within this treacherous weather condition, I was left to fend for myself. Not knowing how long this perilous dilemma would last, I rocked, slid and vomited while keeping myself from slipping into the abyss of this bottomless ocean. Suddenly, a hand reached for my collar to pull me away from the slippery taffrail. I was dragged into the boat’s cabin that was now filled with ankle-deep water. As if I had gone bonkers the sportsman glared at me transfixed. 
“What in the world were you doing on deck. You were repeatedly told to stay below. This is not a time to tamper with the forces of nature. You could have been swept into the ocean and drown!” he chastised sternly.
“You, Fahrib and Andy are above deck…,” I muttered meekly. 
He scowled at my defiance.
 “We are experienced seamen and you, boy, is not,” he admonished. “The last thing we want on our hands is your dead body floating in the water.” 
“Andy isn’t an experienced sailor,” I negated truculently.  
He raised his hand to land me a slap for being an insolent brat. Before his hand could touch my cheeks, the boat’s violent oscillations hurled us in opposite directions. I crushed against the bulkhead while the athlete pulverized onto a dividing panel. Before he left me to my own expedient, his grimace had sent chills across my trembling body. When we finally came ashore, search teams were already scouring the vicinity for distressed boats adrift at sea.  The Running Mate was indeed one resilient lady whose damage was next to none. Thanks to our two experienced yachtsmen, we were relatively unharmed. Besides some minor bruises and concussions, the four of us were up and running after a good night’s sleep. I did not relate to my Valet what transpired in the cabin. After all, I conceded I was in the wrong and shouldn’t have put myself and crew in harm’s way, causing further perturbation if I should indeed fall into the turbulent waves. That would have been an unforgivable disaster. 

Author's Bio
