206 pages3 hours


The Alastor Chronicles is a series around the lives of The Alastor King, Slade Gruber and his two princes—Wade and Jax Wagner.

In Slade: The First Touch, book 1 in this tetralogy, we meet the king's intended mate, Chiara Silas.

She said . . .

My name is Chiara Silas and I am a vamp-were slayer. My only goal in life is to hunt these grotesque, undead creatures; to avenge the killing of my innocent siblings.

So, there I was, on the run, minding my own business while I hid in his truck. I honestly thought he was a harmless trucker, until he had me naked and kissing in the back of his truck. Things went south from there. He turned out to be a bloody king and I turned out to be Dracula's relative (ye Gods!). Then he started talking about mating for eternity. I mean, don't get me wrong. He's delicious to look at and has that Master-of-the-Universe thing going for him. But I prefer my men humbler and with fewer teeth. Did I mention he's part vampire, among other things? Also, he looks at me like he wants to eat me whole. Much as I'd like to end up as his dinner, I have a job to do. The Red Moon marriage is right around the corner and I have some serious ass to kick.

He said . . .

My name is Slade Gruber and I am the King of Alastor Protectors. I am here to protect humans and preserve the balance of humanity.

So, there I was, minding my own business, when this red-haired hellion trespassed on my truck, held a gun to my balls and 'silently' begged me to make love to her. Things got interesting from there. She's gorgeous and funny. She also turned out to be my mate, preordained by a long-standing legend. Sigh. Don't get me wrong. I am hungry and she looks good enough to eat, but I have more pressing problems right now. Like the upcoming Red Moon marriage and the mutiny in various vampire covens. All hell is about to break loose and my spitfire mate is in the middle of it.

Curious about what happens next? Why don't you take a ring side seat and join Slade and Chiara on this thrilling ride?

Because, if you think you know how this ends . . . think again!
