Publisher: Rising Sun Books
Release Date: September 18, 2012
Good girls don’t wear fur, or fight over men, and they certainly don’t run around naked, howling at the moon.
But then, no-one ever called Fallon a good girl.
As a human unofficially mated to an Alpha werewolf, Fallon is being pressured to “become”...or be gone.
Her mate Aiden, the interim leader of the Olde Town Pack, is in a position that demands he either choose a wolf mate...or leave the pack forever. No matter how hot the sex with Fallon is, he can’t ignore centuries of tradition.
Become a wolf or not. If only the choice were that simple. Fallon’s options are further clouded by the overt presence of other females desperate to be the Alpha’s mate. And when these bitches get serious, it’s not just claws that come out. If Fallon wants to keep her man and take the title she’ll have to exert a little dominance of her own.
I asked the lovely Katie to tell us Alyssa's feelings on her BFF decision to become a werewolf. So this is Alyssa's thoughts enjoy.
My friend and her new fur coat!
Alyssa here. I want to clear the air a little bit. I know a lot of you out there think that we vamps have issues with other supernaturals. Let me set the record straight. We’re cool! That’s right. Vampires, werewolves, witches, shifters; we’re all part of the same world-wide minority. It’s you humans who seem to have serious prejudice issues. And you guys love to place those same types of prejudices on us as well. Fiction is always full of vampire-werewolf wars or some other BS like that. It’s really quite silly. But anyway, I’m getting off topic here.
Now that that bit is all cleared up I can tell you how over the moon (pun intended) I am about my buddy Fallon becoming a werewolf!
You see, here’s the thing. When I became a vampire, I was supposed to give up everything in my “mortal” life. Vampire law and all that. I get it now. We are a danger to humans, especially the ones we love. We’re constantly hunted by the Acta Sanctorum. And those guys are no joke! So, that meant friends, family, you get the picture; I had to turn my back on them all.
Do you really think I could have given up my BFF? No Way. So naturally, I fought to keep her around. The sad fact is, even though I could hold back my vampiric urges for blood, (Don’t bother judging until you’ve spent a night in my fangs! ) I couldn’t escape the fact that she’d eventually die. I’m immortal, she’s not. I live a dangerous life, and since she’s part of it, she’s in constant danger. Eventually I’d have to watch her die and that was really not cool.
I’d tried to get her to become a vamp. I mean I really tried hard. At one point my fangs were inches from her neck, ready to strike the deadly blow, but I couldn’t do it. She didn’t want to be a vampire. She won’t say the words out loud, but she despises me for being one. I know it. Sometimes she looks at me like I’m a monster. It hurts, but I can’t say I blame her. Again I say, spend a night in my fangs before you judge. Even though she thinks of me as a bit of a monster, we’re still BFF’s. That bond has never broken. But, being a vampire ain’t for everyone. I was not all that happy about it either when I first turned, so I couldn’t do it to her. I have to honor her wishes.
Then came Aiden. And thank the gods for him! He’s a wolf. Wolves are not truly Immortal but they live for a really, really long time. Next best thing, right? Fallon was head over heels for that man from the moment she met him. I thought becoming a wolf to be his mate was a guarantee. Still though, she was resistant to the idea. I don’t know why that girl was so wishy washy. And again, I gave some serious thought to just turning her myself. I know, I know, I’m a little selfish. But if you look at it from my perspective: she’s a fragile human living around dangerous supernatural creatures. I was looking out for her wellbeing too. I wanted my best friend to stay around for a long time.
It took quite a bit of convincing, but eventually, Fallon became receptive to wearing a fur coat over drinking blood. And, like I said, we supernaturals are all pretty cool with each other. So she agreed to be turned into a werewolf! It was the perfect solution. I get my BFF and we really do get to be Best Friends Forever!
