You’d think that if your family was actually a giant pack of mixed prey and predators, that would be something you’d mention, right? You’d also think that if your dad was a freaking lion, and your other dad a mythical phoenix, that would also be something you’d mention. And that of all your adopted siblings, your big brother bear was too hot for description? That doesn't deserve a mention? Apparently not. Following His Omega is a short story that takes place about fifteen years after Reaching For His Omega ends. A lot has happened as magic has seeped back into the world, as a result of freeing the Ancients, and our favorite pack is about to discover one of the consequences... 18+ readers only, please, as this story is lightly mpreg, features a giant bear with a giant... heart, a British hedgehog, and a lot of surprised squeaking.This short story was released as an exclusive freebie for a short period of time and is no longer published.

The Rise of the Iliri: Books 1-3
Auryn Hadley - 2016
In an exotic and dangerous post-apocalyptic world, a nation of terrorists under the thumb of an evil Emperor sets out to systematically destroy every race but their own. And they’re just about to succeed. Author Auryn Hadley deftly blends heart-stopping epic adventure with the age-old struggle between good and evil, hatred and love—all through the lens of an intriguing female lead, the likes of which the fantasy genre hasn’t yet seen. BLOODLUST, Book 1Private Salryc Luxx is iliri, a species bred by humans long ago for protection...and entertainment. Enslaved until being conscripted into the army for biting a military officer, Sal's only goal is to fight her way into the Black Blades, an elite army unit. The Blades instantly recognize her as the perfection of exactly what she was designed to be: an unequaled killing machine, yet irresistible to every man. Each of the Black Blades will die to protect her. Some of them will submit to the bloodlust that overtakes her in battle and can be quenched only by roughly passionate mating. Eventually, all of them will submit to her command. After months of training, she becomes the most lethal member of the unit. It will take much longer for them to teach her who she is: their destiny. INSTINCTUAL, Book 2Now that Sal has won her place in the Black Blades, she's struggling to find answers about how to fit in with her new family.
