Author Override is the place where authors take the reins and take you on a journey into their world. Some may allow you into their private writing dens. Others may take you along with them on research trips or interviews. Whatever the case may be, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride because here you’ll get an in-depth look into an author’s musings.


Hi there! Thank you so much for stopping by. Since you’re here, I thought I’d share an exclusive excerpt from An Unlucky Moon. If you’ve been reading the Dante’s Circle series, you know that at its core, its about seven friends who are finding their way in their new paranormal world. I thought I’d share just a snippet of their interactions because I love these girls so much. (Plus I love the hero, but you’ll see him in the book. Promise!)


Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?

He’s spent the last few years in hell fighting in the demon games and doing things that would haunt even the fiercest of men’s nightmares. But now Hunter Brooks is back in the human realm, ready to take on the Pack that left him behind…and take the mate he’s just met.

Becca Quinn is one of the seven lightning-struck women—a human who isn’t so human and only needs to find her true half to unlock all that she could be. Hunter, the dangerous, sexy wolf, has saved her life twice, and yet she knows nothing about him—only that she wants to know everything she can.

Between the Pack’s council and strangers who could take everything away from them, Becca and Hunter have more to fight and everything to fight for. Hunter’s dark past takes over their courtship, and just when he thinks all his lost, he’ll find that Becca’s more than he—or she—ever thought.

Warning: Contains a sexy wolf who broods with the best of them, a woman who defines the term unlucky, and a chemistry that’s sure to make the wolf howl in all of us.

Exclusive Excerpt

“So how was it?”

Becca rolled her eyes at Faith’s words since she knew her friend couldn’t see her over the phone. She wouldn’t have been in the mood to deal with her friend’s attitude if the other woman could see her.

“How was what?” she asked.

“The kiss! Damn, Becca, stop stringing me along. I saw how hot that wolf boy was. Did you see the way he smoldered? Yes, smoldered. Who knew that happened outside of movies or books? Hell, if you don’t want him, I’ll take him for a ride.”

“Back off, Faith. He’s not for you,” Becca snapped.

Faith cackled over the line. Cackled. She knew her friend, like the rest of the girls, would one day turn into another supernatural creature, and Becca was pretty sure Faith would be a witch, considering she already had the laugh down.

“Touchy, aren’t we?” Faith teased. “So I guess the dude can kiss. Good for him. I hope you didn’t sleep with him right away though.”

“Fuck off, Faith.”

“You’re making me cranky over here, but I love you. Plus, if you’d slept with him, we’d all be hearing about your new powers. I can’t wait to see what you turn into.”

Becca wasn’t sure she wanted to know and told Faith as much.

“Becs, you’re in pain, and it’s because you found Hunter and aren’t mated. We’ve seen Jamie and Lily go through this, and we’re watching Nadie go through it.”

“I know that, hon. I know that the gods and fate and whatever want me and Hunter together, but I don’t like not having a choice.”

“I know what you mean. I see Lily and Jamie happy and loopy in love, but that doesn’t mean it will be the same for us.”

Becca rolled her eyes. “Thanks for that confidence.”

“Anything you need, babe.”

“You suck.”

“No, not at the moment. I’ve been single for too long.”

Becca chuckled and gagged into the phone. “I totally don’t need to know that.”

“What? You started it.”

“You’re a dork, but I love you anyway. Really, though, I don’t know what to do.”

Faith sighed. “Do what you want, Becs, but know that sometimes you just have to work with what fate deals you. Don’t run away from something that could be good because you’re fighting the system.”

“I’m going to remind you of this conversation when you find your mate.”

Her friend snorted. “Gods, that’s gonna suck. Everyone is going to come at me with my own words.”

“Hurts, don’t it?”
