Join Author Taylor Rylan for a Party Takeover May 12th, 2018
8-9 PM EST
After several years of daydreaming about sexy men in her head, Taylor decided to finally start writing about them! That's where the Men of Crooked Bend come in. Although at the time, she had no idea as to what she would name the town, nor what state they would be even be in! She quickly learned that even though she had ideas in her head, it was her characters that ultimately decided what would happen in each story. She goes into each story with a set plan but already knows that in the end, things will change and that her characters are going to get their way.
When she’s not writing about sexy men, she loves to read about them. Although, her reading time has become less frequent since she started writing.
She is a busy mom of three and hopes to one day add a fur kid to the bunch. If she’s not writing or reading about sexy men, she’s either running to some band function or another or is busy cheering from the stands at basketball games or marital arts functions.
Her debut book, My Forever, My Always is only the first of several books in the Men of Crooked Bend Series and she already has a spin-off series planned!
This month we're reading Omega Boys by Ruby Nox. Join in on the fun and discussion.
Omega wolf Simon Malone never thought he'd wake up in the back of a car, bonded to an alpha. And certainly not one as strong-willed and carefree. Now, Simon must find a way to break the bond before he loses what little life he has. If he can't, who knows what lengths this rich alpha will go to. But Simon can't quite tear his eyes—and heart—away from sinfully sexy Cody Adams.
All alpha wolf Cody Adams wanted was one glorious week of freedom before his official bonding to a high class omega. A last hurrah before taking on the responsibilities on his status and resigning himself to a mundane life of perfunctory sex and duties. Now, with one week to rid himself of this low bred wolf, Cody must reign in his temper and his heart before he does something else he regrets—like falling in love. It doesn't help that Cody's never seen an omega as captivating as Simon. And when Simon turns out to be pregnant, things get even more complicated.
The Lion's Roar
Over a year has passed since omega Dallas Holland separated from his abusive mate. While there have been challenges, he feels like he's finally starting to heal and move on. But his quiet life takes an abrupt turn when a new alpha drives into town with a young and hurting omega in tow. Things get even more interesting when his mother invites the alpha and his ward to stay at their home. Despite his resolution to stay away from shifters, he can't help but be drawn to the alpha's kind nature.
Haunted by a past failure, Gabriel Walker has devoted his life to helping omegas find better lives. His latest rescue, Leo, takes him to the small community of Frog Lake. While Gabriel's first and foremost priority is to take care of his charge, he can't seem to fight the growing attraction to the shy and awkward omega with a love for art, and the determination to make a better life.
When coincidence and circumstance keep pushing these two together, will Dallas learn to trust again? Will Gabriel let himself be happy?
Leo has everything he could have hoped for. A budding career. Wonderful friends. A loving home with his adoptive mother. What else could he possibly want? When he takes on the job as camp cook on Mount Benjamin, he looks forward to a peaceful winter working side by side with his friend. But when a mysterious and quiet alpha joins Gabriel’s crew of foresters, Leo somehow finds himself drawn into a past even more tangled than his own.
Asher needs a fresh start. Somewhere far away where no one knows his name. When he ends up in Frog Lake, he thinks he’s found the perfect place to hide from his past and keep to himself. Except now there’s this bright and friendly little omega that seems to find every crack in his walls. Though he tries not to get too close, he can’t quite stop himself. As the two grow closer, he starts to relax into his new life. Unfortunately the past has a way of finding him, no matter how far he flies.
The Raven's Song
Recently widowed Liam is chased from his home by his abusive mother-in-law. Alone with his baby, he ends up at a motel in the peaceful village of Mill Town. His hands are full with his son, but he can't help noticing the attractive alpha staying in the room next to his. Though he tells himself he's not ready to love again, he can't seem to resist the rebellious yet kind shifter who seems to go out of his way to help Liam at every turn.
Toby just wanted to make a point. He didn't think his family would stoop low enough to kick him out. While he's not exactly thrilled with his new life in a motel room, it does come with a perk: the lovely little omega next door—even if a baby is a part of the package. While Toby's never given much thought to parenthood, he finds himself drawn to the father and son more and more each day.
Sometimes as a writer it's hard to decide which scene won't turn the reader off when it comes to this particular scene. Authors try to mix it up in their books and also try to follow their muse but it does worry them sometimes that it might be off putting or be a trigger for the readers. So we would love to hear what you guys think.
This is for both readers and writers.
What do you prefer reading of writing when it comes to the birth scenes? #Natural, #Magical, or #C-Section?
