Alpha Showdown 2014 Round 2: Curran vs. Kate Daniels

Alpha Showdown 2014 Round 2: Curran vs. Kate Daniels Update: Kate handed a serious ass-kicking to Curran. She advances in the Alpha Showdown. We seed the Alpha Showdown bracket. That means the battles in the first rounds are determined by the number of votes each character receives. It makes sure the top two vote-getters don’t end up facing each other in the first round.

Alpha Showdown 2014 Round 1: Reyes vs. Zsadist

Alpha Showdown 2014 Round 1: Reyes vs. Zsadist Update: This round’s winner is Reyes Farrow! It was a close one. Final results: Reyes – 51%, Zsadist 49%. Both Reyes and Zsadist have made appearances in the Alpha Showdown before. Reyes almost took the top title last year. The slates have been wiped clean, though, and it’s time to begin the battle for the 2014 title. Both characters know a thing or two about Hell, but who will come out...

Vampires, Shifters, Fae—Who Makes the Best Boyfriends?

Vampires, Shifters, Fae—Who Makes the Best Boyfriends? I need your help, readers. You see my good friend Megan S. from Stellar Four thinks supernatural types would not make good boyfriends. I’m not saying there aren’t issues to overcome in having a relationship with a vampire or werewolf or faerie (that whole can’t lie thing is a double-edged sword). However, I think the good outweighs the bad. When I look to my list of book boyfriends—when...
