The Top Ten Facts Readers Need To Know About The Alpha Pack By J.D. Tyler & Giveaway





The Top Ten Facts Readers Need To Know About The Alpha Pack

By J.D. Tyler

Are you new to the world of the Alpha Pack? When starting any series, especially one that contains a detailed paranormal world, there are certain facts it’s helpful to know beforehand in order to have an enjoyable reading experience. 

Without further ado, here’s some important insight into the Alpha Pack world, Letterman-style:

10. The original members of the Pack were Navy SEALs stationed in Afghanistan. While on assignment, they were attacked by rogue wolf shifters and turned. The government then helped them form the Alpha Pack—a black ops team of shifters that helps protect the world from lethal human and non-human predators.

9. Each shifter possesses at least one type of Psy gift, such as moving objects with the mind, starting fires, seeing the future or the past, speaking telepathically to another person, teleporting, speaking to ghosts, etc.  

8. Once a shifter meets his mate, he has a limited amount of time to claim her before he becomes sick. Remaining unmated after that will ultimately result in death.

7. Shifters do not need protection when they make love, as they do not naturally carry or pass STD’s.

6. Though sexually insatiable, a male shifter cannot impregnate a female who is not his true mate. He also cannot become aroused by another female once he has met his mate.

5. The Alpha Pack team was created by bites from rogue wolf shifters, but their commander, Nick Westfall, is a born shifter. The team has no idea that their leader is more than two hundred years old and carries the burden of a tragic past. 

4. The original team members (Navy SEALs that were turned) are: Jaxon Law (silver wolf, RetroCog), Aric Savage (red wolf, Firestarter/Telekinetic ), Zander Cole (black wolf, Healer), Ryon Hunter (silver wolf, Channeler/Telepath), Raven DeLuca (black wolf/TBD), Micah Chase (brown wolf, Dreamwalker), and Phoenix (TBD).

3. Newer Pack members: Commander Nick Westfall (rare white born wolf, former FBI Special Agent/PreCog), John “Hammer” Ryder (silver wolf/former FBI Special Agent/Tracer), Kalen Black (Sorcerer/Necromancer/black panther shifter), Rowan Chase (recently turned silver wolf/Dreamwalker, mated to Aric Savage, sister to Micah), and A.J. Stone (human, former SWAT sniper)

2. The compound where the Alpha Pack lives and works is technically called The Institute of Parapsychology. The Institute employs doctors and scientists who study the Pack team members and other paranormal creatures, striving to keep them healthy. A hospital is also housed in the compound, as well as a sanctuary for healing lost/injured paranormals.

And the Number One thing readers should know about the Alpha Pack is…
1.     Smoking. Hot. Navy SEAL. Shifters. Perhaps that’s all you really needed to know. 
 
SERIES SPOTLIGHT - ALPHA PACK
PRIMAL LAW
Alpha Pack #1

Founded by a group of former Navy SEALS, the Alpha Pack is a top-secret team of wolf shifters with Psy powers tasked with eliminating the most dangerous predators in the world. But the gift of their abilities comes at a price…

After a massacre decimates half his team and leaves him crippled, Jaxon Law must relearn how to fight—and battle the anger and guilt threatening to overwhelm him. But when he rescues a beautiful woman who reawakens his primal instincts, Jax is unprepared for the dangers that lie ahead.

On the run from her employer, brilliant lab assistant Kira Locke has evidence that leads the Alpha Pack on a hunt for someone targeting human civilians with Psy abilities. And as Jax and Kira circle both the killer and each other, Jax will have to decide if the deep connection he feels with Kira is worth breaking the ultimate shifter rule—because bonding with Kira means putting his abilities at risk, and they might be the only tools he has to keep his mate alive…

HUNTER'S HEART
Alpha Pack, #4
Publication Date:  September 3, 2013

A group of former Navy SEALS, the Alpha Pack is a top secret team of wolf shifters with Psy powers combating the greatest dangers in the world. And when the battle gets personal, their wild side is unleashed….

Ryon Hunter sees dead people—spirits that beg him for help in ways he can’t understand. He’d do anything to end the torment, until a beautiful spirit appears to him with a plea he can’t ignore: Help me…I’m alive. The woman is wildlife biologist Daria Bradford, mortally wounded after encountering a white wolf, calling to Ryon through a rare Psy gift.

When Ryon locates Daria in the Shoshone National Park, it is almost too late, but nursing her back to health at the Alpha Pack compound brings a new complication—Daria is his destined mate, and Ryon is afraid of what will happen when she discovers what he is, and what he had to do to save her life. But the biggest threat of all is still loose in the forest, leaving a merciless trail of death behind it. The Alpha Pack goes on the hunt for the mysterious white wolf, determined to stop the murderous rogue… only to find that the most lethal creature of all is the one they can’t see coming…

COLE'S REDEMPTION
Alpha Pack, #5
Coming:  March 4, 2014

Once, they were Navy SEALS. Now they are the Alpha Pack: a top secret team of wolf shifters with Psy powers who take on the darkest dangers on Earth. But sometimes the greatest danger lies within their own hearts....

Healer and black wolf shifter Zander Cole has survived horrors that would have broken a weaker man. But when a battle leaves him deaf and his powers dimmed, Zan is devastated. Believing himself to be a burden to his team, he sees only one option: leave the Pack forever.

White wolf shifter Selene Westfall knows pain—she is certain her father was responsible for her mother’s death. And she lives to exact revenge. So when she is challenged by a savage black wolf, she puts up a vicious fight—only to become the black wolf’s Bondmate as a result of his bite.

Two damaged souls—one filled with hatred and one who’s lost his reason for living—are forced together as they come to terms with their unlikely, turbulent bond. A love neither expected may be all that stands between them and a killer trying desperately to keep the past dead and buried....

J.D. Tyler is an award-winning, multi-published author who writes for New American Library under three pseudonyms. Whether this is due to an overdose of ambition or a multiple personality affliction, she’ll never tell.

J.D. writes dark, sexy paranormal romance and has a huge thing for shifters, vampires, the Fae, and just about everything else that goes bump and grind in the night. She can’t get enough of those dangerous supernatural heroes, and the fun of creating her own was just too much temptation to resist… so she didn’t. J.D. doesn’t do self-denial.

When she isn’t writing, J.D.’s idea of a good time certainly isn’t cleaning house (sniff), bungee jumping (not in this lifetime, or the next), or camping (her idea of “roughing it” is a slow bellboy).
