Today we're thrilled to reveal a brand-new series from Megan Erickson. Megan has become one of our favorite authors—whether it's her work with Santino Hassell in the Cyberlove series, or her In Focus or Mechanics of Love series (and so much more). Megan's new male/male series will be coming to us in November with the release of the first book, Daring Fate. Today, Megan is here to give us the scoop on the series—and give us the taste of book 1!
Thank you so much for having me on Heroes and Heartbreakers to announce my new series! Reese and Dare hit me as characters quickly, and wouldn’t leave me alone until I wrote down their story. This series is set in a world where humans are extinct and undead nine-foot werewolves roam the earth in packs. So it’s kind of like The Walking Dead but with shifters. And no Carl! (Ha! Sorry, just a Walking Dead joke…)

We all have tragic backstories in today’s world…
I wake up chained to the wall of a dark cell aware of two things: I failed my sister, and I smell my enemy.
When I’m taken to meet Dare, the alpha of the Silver Tip pack, I’m sure I’m about to lose my throat. The last thing I expect is for the Alpha to recognize me as his fated mate. No way is he going to let me go now, and I still have to find a way to rescue my sister.
As I plot my escape to save her, I find that if I leave, Dare could be killed by power-hungry members of his pack. And now he’s more to me than my fated mate—my heart is involved. With time ticking by on my sister’s life, I have to make a choice I never thought I’d face—my sister’s life or my mate’s? That’s if I can survive the undead shifters intent on killing me first...
Get your first sneak peek at Megan Erickson's Daring Fate (available November 14, 2016) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene!
The sound of footsteps had me taking a step back, and Jude crowded against my back. With every thump of a footfall, my anxiety ratcheted up a notch, because whoever was making that sound walked with purpose. With authority.
The footsteps stopped, and I held my breath until a movement caught my eye. In one moment, the space in front of me was empty, and in the next, a Were was there, landing with a shuddering thud from out of nowhere, the dust swirling up around his black boots and legs clad in leather pants. My gaze rose. And rose. And rose. Up past thighs the size of my torso, a bare stomach rippling with muscle beneath tanned skin, twitching pecs glistening with sweat, over shoulders that could bench press three of me, and finally up to meet the green-eyed gaze of Dare.
Alpha of the Silver Tip.
I knew with every beat of my heart that he was alpha. If I had any hydration left in my body, I would have pissed myself.
He was by far the largest Were in the room. When he opened his mouth and bared elongated canines—even in his human form—Jude clutched my shoulders and muffled a small scream into my back.
“Hey Dare, we can put ’em to work,” one of the Weres said. “Or you could give the little one to me.”
I’d kill myself and Jude before that fucking Were touched him.
Dare opened his mouth, his throat working like he was about to speak when he paused and sniffed the air.
My nose was half-clogged with blood, and I could barely breathe. But a whiff of a scent caught my attention. I inhaled as much as I could, and as soon as the sweet aroma hit my nostrils, my knees buckled.
That scent was nothing I’d ever experienced before…like the pine of the Were mixed with honeysuckle…
This couldn’t be happening. Not here. Not now. But that scent was overwhelming me, setting my blood on fire. My skin tingled, and my heart pounded like a drum beat in my chest. When Dare locked eyes on me, I knew it.
He was my True Mate.
I’d finally escaped my former prison, and now I’d be stuck in another one. My life as I knew it was fucking over.
