In the last two weeks, you've met Silvia and you've met Daryl from my story, Dark Heart, in the Bad Alpha Anthology. Today, I'm sharing a snippet from this same story in which you get a little bit of back story...

She gasped when he stood in his chair, pinned his arms to either side of her and crowded her against the bar.
"You say you're in favor of those like me, but you're whispering the word as if it were a damn disease. Do you think I don't know what's happening at SOA, sweetheart?" He leaned closer to her. "SOA wants to help by actively looking for a cure to shifting. They pretend to be separate from the government, but in truth there are alliances in place. You both want to get rid of shifters and any other monsters, as you call them. We are a threat to the balance of the world." Daryl laughed humorlessly. "Did your people really think I didn't know?"

Bad Alpha: A Multi-Author Anthology
Bad Alpha features a select collection of stories with shifters so ruthless they will stop at nothing to protect their pack. These aren't sugar-and-spice heroes. Our alphas are feared, inked, and don’t ask questions first. They take what they want, never give in to their enemies, and think love is for the weak—until they meet their mate. Are you ready to learn how to tame a savage heart?
Dark Heart by Elyzabeth M. VaLey
The world is changing. Vampires are coming out and they’re not remotely similar to the sensual Hollywood portrait made of them. Little by little, Shifters are being unmasked and integration is waning. Panic is spreading. The government is losing control. Private agencies, such as SOA struggle to find a solution, but as the darkness grows, can one even exist?
Ten years ago, Daryl Jones lost his pack to a group of demon vampires. Since then, he not only lost his will to battle for good, his life has become a spiral of drinking, fighting and fucking anything in sight. In his opinion, a pretty perfect existence. Until, he meets the new SOA representative sent to convince him to go back to the lab. With mile long legs, a tight little ass and a smile to kill for, when she offers him a bargain, how can he possibly refuse?
Silvia Adams, has one mission: convince Daryl Jones to work for SOA again. The agency needs him to get back into the lab and help develop a serum to neutralize the growing number of vampires. She knew it wouldn’t be easy task, but with her job on the line, she’ll do anything it takes, including, bargaining with the shifter and surrendering to her deepest desires. Only problem is, she might have bartered for more than she can handle.
