Werewolves and Vampires and Hairstylists... Oh, My!

by Ava Cuvay

Today is a "Two-fer" New Release Announcement: Not-your-average werewolves and vampires… Just in time for Halloween!

The first New Release is by my writer pal Melanie Jayne (writing as M. Jayne).  With “See Me,” she’s stepped away from Mature Contemporary to finally realize a paranormal werewolf story that had been bubbling in her brain for several years. The result is hot and fierce! Trust me, these aren’t your Grandma’s werewolves! They’re more alpha, more ruthless, and more swoon-worthy than any you’ve read before, with enough vulnerability to keep you rooting for their Happily Ever After (well, at least Happily for Now, since they’re immortal and “ever” is a bit much to ask where human/werewolf relationships are concerned ;-)


Throughout history, The Lady, Goddess of the Lycan world, has gifted werewolf packs with humans who carry her mark. Theodora Morrissey’s plans to return to college for her graduate degree are ended when she is awakened by an otherworldly voice on a rarely used airstrip in Nebraska. Injured and disoriented, she has no idea the discoloration on her back has marked her as a Seer, and that she is now a possession—and the prisoner—of the Novus Pack of Lycans.  

To the Novus pack, the word of their leader, their Laird, is the law. With compelling gray eyes and long dark hair, Raider Black rules his pack with intelligence and ruthlessness. To cement the security of his pack, Black has committed to mate another Packleader's daughter. But he’s finding it impossible to fight his attraction to the pack’s alluring new Seer, claiming her as his own.

Sweet, fearless, and unintentionally funny, Theo upends Black’s world and pushes the boundaries of his rules. How far is Raider willing to go, and what will he sacrifice, to save both his pack and the human Seer who’s found a way not only into his bed, but his heart?


Next release is my own! Finally, after all this time blogging about it numerous times, I am thrilled to announce that “Blood King: Revamping the Monarchy” is published!  Forget everything you thought you knew about vampires and sink your teeth into this steamy story filled with thrills, chills, and a healthy swallow of sass!

Dracula was an upstart nobody from an alien race of bloodsuckers… Kaz just met the planet’s King.

Kazandra Lyon’s failed life sucks. But her vacation to a popular destination-planet sucks on a whole new level when she’s abducted and whisked off to a dark castle mired in twilight. She struggles against the attacks of a bloodthirsty monster and her growing attraction to the sexy and mysterious vampire king. Amidst murdered palace staff, political power struggles, and the king’s blood-searing seduction, has Kaz bitten off too much? Will she return to the unhappy safety of her failed life or stick her neck out and embrace a future with the lusty king who thirsts for her?

Away from his homeworld for far too long, King Rune Lahdunae’s political influence has weakened and his vision for his people is now a relic from a bygone era. He struggles to regain his royal standing as monarch, resurrect his race’s proud heritage, and keep his randy fangs off his beautiful guest. Yet Kazandra’s spirit and humor arouses a hunger in him more primal than the need for her life-giving blood. Can he entice her to remain as his honored guest… and possibly his wife? And can he thwart the relentless killer who is drinking his people dry before Kazandra becomes the next victim?
