Thank you for all your well-wishes last week. You guys always make me smile.
Today, I'm changing stories! I'm sharing a snippet from my upcoming story, Alpha's Sunshine, in the Evernight Publishing anthology, Owned by the Alpha.
Allow me to introduce, Sisu and his gritty bar, Moon Point...
Enjoy and have a lovely day!

Sisu wiped the counter with the worn rag. He made a mental note to check the inventory for some new ones, for although Moon Point was not the best bar in the city, it still belonged to him.
He took in the rowdy environment. A group of men played darts in the corner. Others debated enthusiastically with a mug of mediocre beer in their hands and a tray of greasy, half-eaten food on the table. Scattered in dark, secluded corners, couples made out. Red Hot Chili Pepper’s California started to play and drunken voices joined in singing the chorus.
Sisu took a deep breath: Alcohol, fritters, heavy perfume, sweat, smoke, wet dog. The place stunk, yet, even though he only came once a month, it still smelled like home. He owned three other businesses now, all of them of better quality, but Moon Point would always be his favorite joint, because his roots were here, in this place, within this gritty neighborhood.

He has never been this challenged.
Sisu doesn’t play games. When he desires something, he goes after it. This time he wants the woman named May. The moment she entered the bar and his wolf got a whiff of her scent, he knew she belonged to him. The problem is she’s scared and holding back secrets. But Sisu never gives up, and this won’t be the exception.
She doesn’t trust anyone, especially shifters.
May is forced to ask shifters for help, but everything goes wrong when Alpha wolf, Sisu, interferes. He claims to be her mate, but she knows that’s impossible. Soulmates don’t exist. Besides, every time he comes near, a strong keening ache grows within her. Surely it is a warning sign for her to step away, not closer. Right?
Coming April 25th!
