Charlee Allden on Pets and STEALING MERCURY

Hi everyone! I’m so happy to be here today! I met the fabulous Lexi Post last year and when she mentioned the Happily Ever After Thoughts blog, I knew I wanted to visit. Thanks, Lexi, for inviting me over.

Have you noticed that authors love to talk about and share pictures of their pets? Me too! My 17 year old cat is one of my oldest friends! But, at 17, wanting to lie between me and my laptop is about the most interesting thing he does.

I grew up with dogs, lots and lots of them. I don’t have any pictures to share. Sadly, it was before digital photography and we didn’t “waste” a lot of film on the dogs. :-(

Today, I want to talk about my NEW Dogs…, 

but they’re not pets. I’m not even sure how tame they are! But I DO have pictures. 

I’m talking about my Arena Dogs Series.  Think sexy, gladiator style fighters then add in the fierceness, loyalty, and irresistible beauty of wolves.  Those are my Arena Dogs. Here is where it gets a little dark. My Dogs are part of a genetically engineered race and just like most gladiators of old Rome, they’re slaves with no choice but to fight. 
In Stealing Mercury, the first Arena Dogs novel, Samantha Devlin is hired to pilot a courier ship,when she discovers her cargo is actually three Arena Dogs condemned to death for daring to fight for their freedom. Mercury, their leader, and Lo, his emotionally broken arena-brother, challenge all her notions of honor, loyalty, and love as she discovers just how much she will risk to keep them… and herself alive.

This series is full of adventure, space ships, uninhabited and alien planets, and big-hearted characters. 

The second book, Tempting Jupiter, will be out this spring. That makes this a good time to try Stealing Mercury and to sign up for my new release announcements at the link below.

Because my books have a darker edge (always with a HEA), I also like to put a little positive energy into the world with my Prompt-A-Day facebook page:

  1. Your books sound interesting... thanks for sharing! :)

  2. Love your introduction to your books! Dark and edgy sounds great to me. I'm getting the idea that Stealing Mercury is a ménage because of all the wolf/men (sexy as hell!) and one female??

    1. Yes, that's right. I could,'the resist giving Samantha two amazing men to cope with. LOL

    2. Couldn't! Dang you auto correct.
