#BOC Presents! Alpha Males with Violetta Rand, Michele De Winton, Katana Collins & Michele Mannon

Interview with an Alpha Male

Ever imagine what it might be like to have a hot as sin Alpha male whispering in your ear? Well, four authors who write dark, gritty romances cordially invite you to listen in on some titillating conversations they’ve had with one of their heroes. Things are about to get hot. Fans and wine advised!

EAGLE ~ One Taste of Angel (Book One, Iron Norsemen MC) by VIOLETTA RAND

Eagle: (Looks me up and down, grins, and lights a cigarette)

Violetta: Thought we were going for a ride.

Eagle: Only if you agree to hop on the back of my bike.

Violetta: Sorry, I know the rules. Angel wouldn’t like it if I took her place.

Eagle: (Points at my Ducati) Not a Harley.

Violetta: Nope. It’s not. Bet I can go faster.

Eagle: (Laughs) Real women ride men with Harleys.

Violetta: Real women ride, Eagle.

Eagle: We’ll see. (Finishes his smoke, then climbs on his bike.) Coming?

Violetta: (Straps her helmet on and starts her Ducati) Last one to Holly Beach is a loser. (Screeches out of the parking lot, Eagle in her wake).

Meet Eagle and his brothers from the Iron Norsemen MC!



Violetta’s Bio:

Raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, Violetta Rand spent her childhood reading, writing, and playing soccer. After meeting her husband in New England, they moved to Alaska where she studied environmental science and policy before attending graduate school. Violetta then spent nearly a decade working as a scientist, specializing in soil and water contamination and environmental assessments.

Violetta still lives in Alaska and spends her days writing romance. When she's not reading, writing, or editing, she enjoys time with her husband, pets, and friends. In her free time, she loves to hike, fish, and ride motorcycles and 4-wheelers.

Jake Slade ~ Right me Right #2 Raising Hellfire MC Series by Michele de Winton

Jake: You look good in blue, anyone ever tell you that? Makes me want to lay you down under a summer sky and...

Michele: know I wrote that line for you right? So it’s not going to work on me.

Jake: Shit. This isn’t going to go well for me is it? Should I be worried about sitting too close? You going to smack me with a wrench or a fire or any of you other “plot” ideas?

Michele: You’re safe here. We’re among friends. Tell us about Lucy.

Jake: Having us meet in that pool for the first time, I have to give it to you, that was good. She was all slick from the water and with the moon reflecting over her skin, hell, I’m amazed I managed to hold off for, what, four pages?

Michele: I couldn’t have you fall together too quickly.

Jake: I read that other book. Burned by Lust, now that is getting together quick. And that chick, Lee? Man, if I hadn’t met Lucy, I’d be ripping up the pages to get into her. Hell’s boys wouldn’t have liked it but fuck em. Girl needed someone to hold her down and...but anyway, I’ve got Lucy. She’s like rumbling motor underneath you, I tell you. Better than riding a bike without a helmet.

Michele: You’re a poet.

Jake: Touche lady.

Michele’s Bio:
Words are my drug. There, I said it and now I can't take it back. I've tried doing other things. Heck I was even a dancer in Bosnia (true story), but I keep coming back to the page and getting stuck there. Hooray for words! But hooray for characters too because that's what I love. I like to twist them up in knots, take away their toys, get them drunk and throw them at each other. I try to be mostly polite in real life (I did say mostly) so it's a joy to unleash sassy, mouthy, smart women on the romance men of my worlds and let them at it. I know the saying goes, girls are made of sugar and spice and all things nice, but with me you can expect less sugar and more spice. Heck, these girls are made of adventure, great beer and no fear. Despite training in law (or perhaps because of it) I have been a dancer, choreographer, producer, and all round arty type in various countries for most of my life. I've also travelled extensively, working on projects in Bosnia, India, Scotland, England, Brazil and New Zealand. I love to hear from readers so do come stalk me online – you can check out what’s happening on Facebook and Twitter, grab a free story and join my newsletter for freebies all from my website

Shane McGill ~ Ex-Con: Harrison Street Crew #1 by Katana Collins

Katana: Shane, welcome to freedom. How does it feel to be out of State Penitentiary for the first time in four years?

Shane: [Takes a drag from his cigarette] I’m not free. Not while the club owns my ass. That’s how they trap you. Give you favors you don’t ask for and then force you to pay up.

Katana: Well, that’s pretty dang ‘glass half empty’ talk if I’ve ever heard it. What about that new girl you’re working for at the garage? That redheaded mechanic? She seems cute.

Shane: [Smirks] Cute isn’t exactly the phrase I’d use.

Katana: I can imagine.

Shane: Oh, I know you can. I’ve experienced first hand all the things you can imagine.

Katana: How is it working for her?

Shane: A job’s a job. Working for her is about the same as working for any other boss. Except the view’s a hell of a lot better.

Katana: Just you wait. The work day’s gonna get a hell of a lot better, too...

Hear more from Shane over on Amazon!

Katana’s bio:
When Katana Collins was younger and stole her mother’s Harlequins to read beneath the covers with a flashlight, she wanted to read about the tough as nails heroine. The perfectly imperfect girl with quirks and attitude and sass. And the anti-heroes who were anything but “Prince Charming.” Forget the knight on a white horse… she wanted the bad boy on a motorcycle.
So, now, she writes those romance novels she craved to see on the shelves all those years ago—the sassy heroines. The badass heroes. She penned her first romance novel back in 2012 and now, a few years later, she is an international author with 15 published books, in a wide range of contemporary romance genres (Paranormal, New Adult, Small town, Erotic Suspense… you name it!).
She lives in Portland, Maine, with an ever-growing brood of rescue animals: a kind of mean cat, a very mellow chihuahua, and a very not mellow lab puppy... oh yeah, there's a husband somewhere in that mix, too. She can usually be found hunched over her laptop in a cafe, guzzling gallons of coffee, and wearing fabulous (albeit sometimes impractical) shoes.

DIEGO:  Like what you see, chava?

MICHELE: [Blinking, then flushing red.] I mean, he’s gorgeous. Jet black hair, wicked eyes, a fighter’s muscled body.

You’re called “The Big Boom” guy. Why is that?

It’s also rumored that he’s a hit man, but I wisely refrain from asking him about that.

DIEGO: Explosive...orgasms.

MICHELE: [Coughing]  Excuse me?

DIEGO: You heard me, Shelly baby. If you’re the type of woman who likes to get off know...BOOM! [He makes an exploding sound and gesture with his hands.]

MICHELE:  My imagination goes wild. I mean, whose wouldn’t?

DIEGO: [Leaning back in the chair across from me.] Next question.

Meet Diego on Amazon !

Michele’s Bio:

Michele Mannon has been a romantic ever since she held that boy’s hand behind the old tool shed. An avid reader, her go-to genre has always been romance; the darker and grittier the better. Michele began writing her own brand of sexy in 2011 and is finishing her eighth book for publication. Her work has received high praise, including Romantic Times Magazine’s TOP PICKS. Most days, Michele can be found tormenting her characters high up on a mountaintop overlooking the Delaware River, with her computer in her lap and a glass of Riesling in her hand. Visit
