Music Monday- Forged Alliances

Getting my Music Monday on with the release of Forged Alliances tomorrow!

1. I Don’t Wanna Live Forever- ZAYN/Taylor Swift

This song had a kinda sexy vibe to it which worked for the scorching chemistry between Dax and Sierra. Even though Sierra’s all blunt edges, stubbornness, and flames, Dax was lazy seduction with a cocky confidence that worked so well with her.

2. Friction- Imagine Dragons

This book had a lot of shifter fights involved, and this was my favorite song to play when I was working on the challenger fights. It has an intense beat and a pulse-pounding intensity that got me in the right mindset.

3. Begging for Thread- Banks

Another sensual song, this one worked perfectly for the sex scenes later on. As Dax and Sierra get to know each other more and more, their chemistry becomes explosive and undeniable, which the inexorable seduction of this melody highlighted.

4. Wolves- Selena Gomez

How could I not have this song on the playlist? Since this was the kick-off of my shifter series, I had to include this one, for the energetic beat and the lyrics.

5. Revolution- The Score

I especially loved the line ‘all my wolves begin to howl’ because within seconds of starting this series, they were ‘my wolves’ and ‘my mountain lions’. I fell hard for the Red Rock and Silver Spring packs, and the energy in this song made it perfect for big scenes between the packs.

What’s your next project on the horizon: The fourth book in the Tribal Spirits series! Book two, Forged Decisions is coming out January 1st, and book three, Forged Contracts, is coming out May 21st!

Dive into the first book of the Tribal Spirits series now: Forged Alliances!

Sierra and Dax’s alliance is already rocky. He’s a cocky wiseass, and she doesn’t put up with bullshit. So, when a mating bond appears between them, it threatens to send them both running.

Sierra Kanoska fought hard for her position as wolf alpha of the Red Rock pack, and intruders in her territory receive the full brunt of what her claws, fangs and smarts can accomplish. So, when Dax Williams, de facto alpha of the Silver Springs pack, pays an unwelcome visit, Sierra’s ready to toss him out. However, the pack elders sabotaged Dax’s fight for alpha against his brother, driving him from his lands. Sierra hates underhanded crap like that, so she agrees on an alliance.

As they work together, she witnesses an alpha who wants to do right by his pack, not just a cocky wiseass. Their growing attraction blazes hot, but the moment she and Dax lock lips, a mating bond emerges. Sierra sure as hell isn’t ready to share that intimate connection with a stranger and the thought of forever sends Dax running.

Before they can talk, the Tribe commanding the East Coast shifters arrives to settle the dispute. Dax and his brother’s punishment for their pack’s civil war is a free-for-all on their lands. Not only does he have to defeat his brother, but any challenger in the region. Despite Dax and Sierra’s initial resistance, his wily charm relaxes her control-freak tendencies while her steadfast support bolsters his strength. Yet every new opponent places their newfound relationship under siege—one misstep, one wrong blow in the ring, and Dax could leave in a bodybag.


I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.
