Amazon Kindle: Nature of the Beast (Tangled Bonds #1) by Aimee Brissay
Synopsis: After sorceress Alexandra tries to kill her insane father, her fae uncle expels her from the Otherworld in an attempt to keep her safe. Living among humans, she keeps her connection with the supernatural by working for vampires and werewolves.
When she stumbles upon a hurt werewolf pup her efforts to heal him inadvertently break the bonds tying the young lycan to the pack, making her his new alpha.
This is the least of Alexandra’s worries though, for back in the Otherworld her father has not forgotten her. He dispatches an assassin to kill her. But just who is this mysterious foe, and what will their arrival mean not only to Alexandra but to the delicate balance of the world?
An anxious, pain-filled sound erupted from Nicolae. The glow grew dark, and I could feel pain radiating from him. His breath changed, becoming more laboured. Fear turned to panic, its acid taste burning my stomach. This was nothing like what I had been doing before. This was meant to hurt, not to make a point. And whatever magic was being used to hurt Nic, it stunk to the skies.
My mind rebelled against the assault to my senses and fought to break loose. I locked my jaw and struggled to remain focused. Sean’s power brushed me, anchoring me.
The whimpers became less and less coherent, and I knew I had to intervene.
Nicolae’s sounds became strangled, his breath almost non-existent. Without thinking, I reached out and grabbed the cords. They burned my skin, but I held tight. Power boiled inside of me, fighting the pain I was experiencing and threatening my self-control. I let it rip, exploding in a protective barrier of energy. I pushed it out, moving down my arms to the point where the strings touched my skin. Coolness spread in its wake: a welcome numbness.
“Whatever you’re doing, you better hurry.”
I understood the need for haste. Behind the wall of power, my energy formed into a solid mass in the shape of a blade. I built up layer after layer of strength. When it felt as strong and as solid as a real blade, I shoved it through the wall. It ripped the strings. They disintegrated at the contact, falling through my fingers.
Nicolae cried out—a high, earpiercing shriek. The wards protecting the house vibrated like the taut leather of a drum under the stick, the reverberating tremors dancing over my skin. My eyes snapped open. The power receded, settling back inside me, and I fought to return to reality.

About the author: Born in Romania, land of the Iele and Vlad the Impaler, AIMEE BRISSAY has spent all her life surrounded by books. She has ridden side by side with d’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers to retrieve the Queen’s diamonds, set sail on the Erasmus in search of the Japans, fell in love with Rhett Butler and roamed the Wild West along Old Shatterhand. She has walked on the footsteps of the Olympian Gods and searched for Zalmoxis’ sanctuary in the Carpathians. In her mind, she’s never been the damsel in distress but rather the knight in shiny armor fighting for a cause.
With a background like this, turning to writing was no surprise.
Aimee discovered erotica early on in life and has never looked back. Now she can write anywhere, even in a crowded room or a busy subway station, but she loves solitude.
When she’s not at her evil day job, she can be found writing or playing with her cat. She welcomes messages from readers and promises to answer all of them as soon as possible.
