Exclusive Excerpt

He knew he was skirting dangerous territory, the haunt of a beast far worse than himself, but his hunger and single-minded purpose drove him onward. His hot breath made white clouds in the clear air as he began to run, his quarry nearly in sight.

When he broke the tree line, the bright moonlight glinting off the white snow momentarily blinded him. A moment later, he picked out the sight of her tattered pink dress, the only spot of color in the monochromatic landscape. Her pale limbs and hair were bleached colorless where they sprawled against the snow by the silver light of the full moon.

The hunter’s mouth cramped with pleasure at the proximity of such a tasty morsel, saliva dripping from the corners of his lips. He was so intent on his prey, he failed to notice the shadow racing across the smooth, white field toward him.

Its growl froze him in his tracks, one foot lifted to take another step nearer the prone girl. At the sight of the huge, looming black shape, the fire in his blood turned to wintery fear.

Still, he moved closer, unable to relinquish her. To fail.

One massive obsidian paw flashed, the claws shredding his cheek and leaving his lips a tattered red ruin. He fell back with a whimper.

The beast stood over her, iron eyes and ivory teeth glinting, its wide-legged stance both a claim and a warning. Its fur, black as the deepest shadows of the forest, stood out around its massive shoulders and down its long back, making it seem impossibly big. Four times the size of the girl. Twice the size of him. The muscles of his legs turned to water. Hot, anxious urine pattered uncontrollably to the snow between his feet, filling the air with sharp, acrid steam.

He lowered his eyes and dropped to his belly, tail tucked, snow caking his own damp dun fur. He crawled closer, tongue lolling, oily and obsequious and hating every second of his debasement.

The beast’s low, ripping growl echoed through the still night, locking his muscles. He stilled, unable to stifle a small whimper, torn between the nearness of his prey and the danger between him and her. His paws twitched, digging into the snow. The monster lowered its head, his death in its glittering gaze if he continued forward.


protecting his pack coverNorth American Wolves, Book 1

It’s been less than a year since Lane Perkins left his controlling ex and the big city behind for a new job and a new life in small town Watson Hollow. When he meets enigmatic widower Jared Atherton, Lane can’t deny he feels a pull, but there’s no way he’s getting involved with another man so soon.

Jared has enough on his plate as a single father and Alpha of the smallest pack in North America. He’s not interested in a relationship, especially not with the aggravating human teacher who knows nothing of his world.

Fate has other plans however, and when a threat to Lane’s life leads him within the walls of Jared’s estate, they’ll be forced to face their attraction once and for all. But will it be enough to save them both from the wrath of a bitter rival?


morgan elektra bio imageBorn in the artists’ community of Woodstock, NY, Morgan Elektra discovered her passion for writing at a young age, penning stories of monsters at the dining room table. After years working day jobs and moonlighting as a reviewer for popular genre website Dread Central, Morgan left the comfort of an office to follow her dreams of writing fiction. She spent the early twenty-teens as a freelance ghostwriter of erotica, but has now put aside the masks to write under her own name. Morgan recently obtained her MFA in Creative Writing from Southern New Hampshire University.

She writes dark fiction, paranormal romance, and erotica for those who, like her, are in love with the dark.

When not writing she can be found reading, or advocating for her local LGBTQ+ community. She currently lives near Savannah, GA with her husband, their cat Harlequin, and—if the rumors are to be believed (and she sincerely hopes they are)—an awful lot of ghosts.
