I'm back from my super- awesome holidays. *grin* While I was away two of my stories in two different anthos got published. Today, I'm going to share a snippet from one of them, Bad Alpha Anthology. Though I didn't write much while I was away, this story has inspired what I hope will be a few more stories. Now, I just need to get writing!
ps: Creative editing has taken place to fulfill guidelines!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~Daryl downed the clear liquid in his shot-glass in a single gulp. He smacked his lips and swept the droplets of sweat gathering on his brow with the back of his hand before pouring himself another tequila shot. He preferred to drink directly from the bottle, but Andy had forbidden him to do so. He claimed that it gave his rundown club a bad image. Daryl snorted. How could taking swigs from a bottle be worse than the roaches, the holes in the wall, the limp chairs? He shook his head and poured himself some more. Fuck. He hated this place. The darkness.

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.
