Jason's scared out of his mind when he's met by not only Brian but two large men as well, he does the only thing he can think to do. He tries to run. One of the men, though, turns out to be his mate. A mate he is in no condition to have or want, a mate that won't allow him to flee.

"I live in Darwin, the smallest of Australia's capital cities. I hated english with a passion at school and found my strength lay with numbers.

Now, I love escaping to the worlds I create and hope to continue to do so for many years to come. I'm a single mother of one and I work full time at a Casino. When I'm not writing or spending time with my daughter you can just about guarantee that I'll be reading one of the many MM authors I love.

Determined Mate is the second book in my Holland Brothers series, and stars Jason Matthews and Alex Holland. I'm here to celebrate its recent release in Audio.

1) Tell us something about your character’s friends.
Alex has a number of very close friend, the closest of which is his Beta, Jake Hammond. Who Alex had no idea was actually his youngest brother's mate. Let's just say there was a fair amount of tension between the two friends when that was revealed.

2) What is your character’s favorite meal? Favorite dessert? Favorite snack food?
Anything with meat in it. Really. Alex isn't picky, he can't really cook so he's just grateful that Marcus's mate, Brian and Jason do most of the cooking. He does love Brian's lasagna with garlic bread.

3) What activity does your character absolutely hate?
Cleaning – Without a doubt. Alex is not one to pick up a toilet brush and give the lou a scrub.

4) What other author’s book do you think your character would be good in?
I don't really know that they'd fit in well in any other author's works, but if I had to choose one, I would probably have to go with either Amber Kell or Stormy Glenn. They both write amazing paranormal.

5) What’s your favorite decade and why?
Now. What's not to love? Technology is forever evolving, and people are slowly, becoming more tolerant of each other's differences. I hope one day we will get to live in a world without discrimination because of race, sexual preference or religious beliefs.

But when he loses his wife, Dane finally confronts his attraction to men. And a new teacher, Seth Wolcott, immediately catches his eye.
