Now when she is not writing you can find her enjoying a new release e-book.Lavinia has lived all over the UK but currently resides in London, England.

Lavinia particularly loves supernatural fiction and her favourite authors in this genre include Kelly Armstrong, Keri Arthur and Charlaine Harris.Although Lavinia is a huge fan of the romance genre, she will admit to reading anything and everything. She loves horror, a good thriller and if a book has the capacity to make her cry, well, all the better. One thing she does insist on in a book however, regardless of genre is a happy ending, so you will always find one in the books she writes.

Read an Excerpt

Aaron pressed an ear to the door of his father’s bedroom and listened intently. Stefan would tan his hide if he knew Aaron was eavesdropping, but how else was he supposed to learn anything? In a few months’ time he’d be twenty, but his father still treated him like a child. Stefan and his mate, Cody, had been secretive around him lately-their conversations halting whenever he walked into the room. His father was keeping something from him-Aaron was certain of it. Tonight he intended to find out exactly what was going on. Aaron only hoped his father’s evasiveness had nothing to do with the pack. The last time his position as alpha had been challenged, Cody had nearly got killed. Aaron had been made to watch the challenge and there hadn’t been a damn thing he could do to stop it. He was a little older now and stronger. He wouldn’t let his father or Cody go through something like that again. Not if he could help it. The hushed voices in the room fell silent. Aaron pressed closer trying to hear more clearly. He yelped when the door was yanked open, and he fell forwards into the room, landing on his knees. "I knew he was listening!" Cody exclaimed, pointing his finger at Aaron. Stefan grabbed Aaron by the ear and dragged him along the floor further into the room. Aaron had gone through a growth spurt in the last six months. At six-foot-two, he now stood shoulder to shoulder with his father but Stefan pulled him along as though he was no heavier than a feather. "Do you want to explain yourself?" Stefan put his hands on his hips and frowned at his son. Stefan’s nostrils flared and Aaron was sure he saw the vein in his father’s temple pulse. "Well, if you won’t tell me what’s going on with the pack, I have to find out for myself, don’t I?" Stefan rolled his eyes. "How many times do we have to tell you there is nothing going on with the pack?" "I’m not a kid anymore, Dad. When you are gonna start treating me like an adult?" "When you start acting like one," Stefan boomed. "And stop listening at doors." Aaron narrowed his eyes. "Is someone challenging you again?" "Oh, for pity’s sake!" Stefan threw his arms up in exasperation. "Cody, can you help me out here?" "Aaron, come sit over here." Cody patted the bed next to him and smiled reassuringly. Aaron sighed, got up off the floor and walked across the room. He sat down next to Cody and waited to hear what he had to say. His father’s mate would be sure to tell him the truth. "No one has challenged your father’s position as alpha, I promise you." "Then what’s with all the secrets?" Aaron asked. "You’re keeping something from me. I know you are." Cody looked to his mate, as if for consent. Stefan’s shoulders slumped in resignation but he said nothing. Cody turned back to Aaron and nodded. "Yes. We have been."

    Even better than book one!

    I enjoyed this book even more than the first book Luke's Surprise. You get more of the relationship between the brothers in this book. It was good to see Cody interacting with Luke and Kelan. I loved the plot, it was exiting and full of suspense.

    A great addition to the series - Recommend!

    This was another great book in the series. I love that Kelan's mate wasn't a pushover. Kelan had to work hard to convince Jake they had a future together. Just like the other books I loved the plot, the suspense kept me guessing about who the bad guy was until the end.

    Highly Recommend - A must read!

    I loved this book! The characters were really great - Luke and Mark were so sweet together and I really loved Kelan! The story was suspensful and flowed smoothly and the twist at the end was great, I never saw it coming! Very promissing start to a series.
