Giveaway: All 5 Jessica McClain books by Amanda Carlson We’ve been on board with Amanda Carlson’s Jessica McClain series since the beginning.

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 14: Kaleb vs. Curran

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 14: Kaleb vs. Curran Today’s match will determine the second alpha to enter the final round. These characters are just a fight away from the championship match.

The Beast Lord Curran from Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series easily beat Simon in the first round, but...

Can he beat the lion? You decide. We’ve lined up...
