Celebrating The Release of Book Two In Annie Nicholas' The Vanguards Series

Today we're celebrating the release of THE ALPHA, book two in Annie Nicholas' The Vanguards Series.

Annie Nicholas hibernates in the rural, green mountains of Vermont, where she dreams of different worlds, heroes, and heroines. When spring arrives the stories pour from her, in hopes to share them with the masses one day.

Mother, daughter, wife are some of the hats she happily wears while trudging after her cubs through the hills and dales. The four seasons an inspiration and muse.

You can also find Annie at Paranormal Romantics every Monday.


Annie Nicholas Gives Us A Paranormal With A Twist In Her New Release THE ALPHA - Book Two in Annie Nicholas' The Vanguards Series.

Someone is about to get some Spice in his life. Spice has nothing but the clothes on her back when she returns to Chicago. She's looking for a better life, and that means reuniting with her estranged twin sister, Sugar. She isn't thrilled to find out Sugar's boyfriend is a vampire. But then she meets Eric, once the bottle-cap-glasses wearing nerd next door - now grown into the kind of man she'd love to snuggle with on this cold winter night...and he's offered her his room in Sugar's house.

Eric can't believe Spice has returned. He'd given up hope of ever seeing her again, let alone having her stare at him as if he's sex on a stick. But now that all of his fantasies for them are coming true, reality rears her ugly head and Eric must tell Spice his intimate secret; he's actually an Alpha werewolf looking for his mate and he thinks he's found her.

  4. Happy Release Day

    this sounds like a great book. Can you read these books as stand alones or do you need to read the series in order?

    thanks for the chance to win the first in the series.

  5. Thanks everyone!

    This series is about a pack of geeky werewolves, The Omegas, and their friends. Each book is about their journey from omega position to alphas.

    I did write them chronological but each one has enough info in them to follow the story without reading the previous. By the time this series is finished it should be six novellas long.

  6. I like to read about shifters especially werewolves.


  7. congrats on the new release i lookforward to reading it ! sounds awesome i havent read the first one in this series but they all sound awesome


  8. Congrats on your release. I always enjoy a good shifter story. Definitely be looking for your books.

  14. Congrats on the release. It sounds like a great book.


  15. Joder, in all my books I try not to get to mystical. My werewolves are all made. When a female gets pregnant the children are human because the infection can't cross the placenta. So each werewolf has gone through the trauma of being scratched or biten at one point by a beast. My werewolves are big and scary. Their human counter parts have to struggle with the beast for control. The less control they have the more animalistic their behavior.

  16. I love the excerpt and trailer for this book they're great. I can't wait to see what happens.


  17. Congrats on the release of THE ALPHA! I enjoyed watching the trailer and really liked it and the music. I visited your site and read the excerpts for both books, and they both sound awesome! Vampires and werewolves are two of my favorite paranormals. :)


  18. Still prefer werewolves and vampires to a pure contemporary story. Even if the books are stand alone prefer to read in order and see the porgression of the series. Looking forward to reading these books.
