Summary

The co-authors of the bestselling House of Night series reunite with a haunting, romantic, suspense-filled, original novella in The Escaped series.Eons ago, Sirens were exiled from the Mortal Realm, held captive in a cove at the edge of Tartarus. They are beautiful beyond imagination, but deadly beyond compare. And they have set their sights on breaking free.They risk everything to sneak out of Tartarus and ascend to the forbidden Mortal Realm with one mission—mate with human men to dilute their cursed bloodline and form a new race of Sirens, free from their prison in the Underworld. But for a Siren to become pregnant, she must revert to her True Form, a horrifying sight that drives men to madness, and makes killing them a mercy. In modern San Francisco, the Sirens blend in; each woman has a singular goal, and each man she meets is her prey…Melody Seirina has always been different. She doesn’t believe that she’ll be able to bring herself to take a human life, even when the fate of her people rests on her willingness to do so. She’s even more convinced when she meets Dean, a charming cop who sees a loving future with her. Their romance threatens two worlds, the one the Sirens fled from, and the one that will destroy them if they can’t complete their mission as soon as possible.  Melody will have to make a decision—risk the future of her people or follow her heart.

    Dark Alpha is the second, full length novel, in USA Today Bestselling author Carole Mortimer’s HOT new ALPHA series. Sizzling contemporary romance with an added dash of danger.
    
     
    Stories of dark and compelling ALPHA men, who are used to taking what they want when they want it, and the strong and determined women who have no intention of being taken. Unless it’s on their own terms...
    
     
    Lucien Wynter made a decision 15 years ago to distance himself from his violent past. He has spent those intervening years quietly and ruthlessly building his own business empire and amassing his own private fortune, while at the same time remaining aloof from all emotional entanglements. If he physically wants a woman, then he takes one. Beautiful sensuous women, who never mean anything more to him than that fleeting physical release.
    
     
    Until Nicky McKenzie...
    
     
    Beautiful. Fiery. Elusive Nicky McKenzie.
    
     
    Lucien had never calculated on meeting, let alone desiring, a woman like Nicky McKenzie. The woman he now wants in his bed, no holds barred. The woman he can’t seem to forget. But also, he discovers too late, the one woman capable of bringing his violent past crashing down about his ears...
    
     
    Nicky McKenzie just wants to live her life in quiet obscurity. Unnoticed. Invisible. And for five years she had succeeded in doing exactly that.
    
     
    Until Lucien Wynter...
    
     
    Cold. Compelling. Ruthless Lucien Wynter.
    
     
    Was it chance the two of them had met, or just the cruelty of fate? Whichever it was, the desire between Lucien and Nicky is instant. Explosive. Unforgettable. A desire that becomes as necessary to both of them as breathing, as they indulge and lose themselves in each and every one of their desires for each other.            
    
     
    But both of them are hiding secrets.  Secrets that, once told, could destroy them both.
    
     
    Author’s Note: The novellas and full-length novels in the ALPHA series have sexier situations and stronger language than my other books.
