What happens when vampires invite werewolves over for Christmas? Anything...
After the war between vampires and werewolves, the two species live in peace. Eden, the Aluna werewolf, and Eve, the head vampire, have grown closer and closer. When the holiday season arrives, Eve invites Eden and her mate Liam to their house for Christmas. The only problem is that werewolves don't celebrate the holidays, so they have no idea what they're in for.
Join vampires and werewolves for the holidays this year and celebrate all of the holiday traditions with a twist of surprise!
YABC: What was your inspiration for this story?
Bethany: My Aluna series was so much fun to write, but there was always something going on. This time, I wanted to give my Aluna fans something special: an Aluna Christmas. Christmas time is usually one of the most uplifting seasons and I wanted this story to continue with that tradition.
YABC: Tell us about your other works or projects? Where can we find your books?
Bethany: I have ten published books but am best known for the Aluna Series. All of my books can be found on Amazon and all are enrolled in Kindle Unlimited: https://www.amazon.com/Bethany-Wicker/e/B0164MBKQ0. I also have a website where paperbacks can be purchased: www.bethanywicker.com.
YABC: When it's book haul time at YABC, how do you decide which books to request?
Bethany: I usually want them all so it's very difficult for me to pick. Since there are so many, I try to stick to the Fantasy and Paranormal genres, so it cuts the number down. Then, I just list them as I see them and make my final choices.
Bethany's Awards and Positions:
The Aluna Series have hit the Amazon Bestseller list with Unexpected Alpha remaining there the longest. I've hit the USA Today at number 89 with The Pirate's Siren while it was in the Sirens & Scales Box Set. At YABC, I've earned my positions as a Staff Reviewer and Listings Manager by hard work and through my love for all things books.
