As she started to read more, she started to noticed things she really enjoyedin a book and things she didn’t. She began to have ideas for writing one of her own. One day she literally woke up and started writing. She realized that if there was ever a time for her to write, it was now. She had a part time job to give her something to do. The hours at work were slow and she was bored with what she was doing, so while her son was off enjoying his friends over summer vacation she got started.

That is how the Learning to Love Series was born. Somewhere along the line, one of my Beta readers convinced me that Michael, a character from Finding Love, needed his own story. That is when Alison added the fourth and final book. Alison hopes you enjoy her books as much as she enjoyed writing them.

Crow
Alexa Kim
(Life Tree – Master Trooper #2)
Publication date: July 25th 2016
Genres: Adult, Romance, Science Fiction
Crow has a lot on his plate as the new head of Sector A. Young and inexperienced as he is in his leading role, he still has to prove himself as a capable Alpha. Especially Strike is challenging him for rank.
Yet Crow is adamant about asserting his position, because only as Alpha can he finally have what has been out of his reach for so long – Leslie, a doctor and former head of Life Tree’s INBREED program.
Unfortunately for him, Leslie herself doesn’t make it any easier. Three years his senior, she still regards him as the young Trooper who qualified for INBREED. In her book, that’s two reasons not to let him into her bed.
When Strike catches on to Crow’s weakness and abducts Leslie, both men are out for blood…
Leslie is traumatized. In the blink of an eye, her world was turned upside down. She has gone from being a self-confident woman and head of INBREED to being property ofa Trooper.
Although she likes Crow and feels drawn to him already, she simply cannot forgive him for trying to make her submit only so he can strengthen his position as Alpha and leader. Moreover, there is this secret she keeps… the reason she left Earth. If Crow were to find out, he would certainly cast her aside – a bitter experience Leslie has been through before. No, she’d rather ignore her feelings…

EXCERPT:
– Crow –
“You enjoyed tonight,” I start, trying to get back the comfortable mood, but it’s not really working.
“Yes. I’m glad Larona lives here now.” Leslie’s eyes shine vividly for the first time since I’ve laid claim to her.
“You feel comfortable in her presence.”
“I do,” Leslie admits guilelessly while we take the remnants of our dinner back to thekitchen. “Larona and I get along well. She’s my friend.”
I feel another stab of jealousy, and then I regrettably say something absolutely moronic, “You’d rather spend time with her than with me.” Leslie turns around and looksat me with a frown that makes me want to bite my tongue off. You idiot. You bloody idiot!
“Well, Larona isn’t smothering me with a compulsive need for control!”
Her words shatter my self-control. A haze of abstruse thoughts clouds my mind, courtesy of my eight percent non-human DNA. Leslie is still challenging my authority. She’s mine, and I know what’s best for her… but she doesn’t take me seriously. She doesn’t admit my claim on her! I have to get her under control! She has to submit! With those thoughts running riot in my mind, adrenaline gets pumped into my blood, putting me into a mood that’s a mixture of aggression and arousal.
Of course, Leslie notices – the ostentatious tent in my pants is hard to miss. However, this time, she’s not afraid. Instead, she seems rather peeved… and aroused, which I’m able to tell from her scent. A part of my heightened emotions is profoundly satisfied by that development – at least physically, there are no issues in our compatibility.
Still, Leslie tries being obstinate. She crosses her arms in front of her chest. Her eyes are ablaze, and her brown hair falls in loose waves down to her shoulders. I noticeevery detail about her… and her stubbornness only makes me want her even more! Right now!
Leslie is wearing one of her white bodysuits that hardly conceals any of her femininecurves… neither the dip of her waist, nor her long legs, nor her shapely behind. Every inch of her body is sending me a clear message, yet I doubt she’s even aware of it.
“You want to grab me and throw me onto the bed again so you can proof somethingto yourself?” Her voice is flippant and just a bit husky.
I decide to play along. “There’s no need for that.”
“Great,” she retorts, but now there’s a hint of uncertainty in her voice. “Good night, then.”
Leslie turns to leave, but I’m not letting her off that easy. She hasn’t gone two steps when I grab her from behind, wrapping her in my arms. “I don’t need a bed to show you who you belong to… the kitchen will suffice.”

EXCERPT 

Joe sat back in his seat, eyes on the door. Abella’s was a family owned restaurant, one of his favorites. They did awesome steak, and the place held a whole heap of good memories.
He spotted Darcey as soon as she walked in, standing at the door, a frown lowering her brows as she took the place in. He hadn’t told her what they were doing, just to meet him, and going by the dark jeans, black Converse, and leather jacket, she’d anticipated a night of boosting cars. He should’ve stood up and waved her over, but instead, he watched her dark eyes scan the room, waiting for them to land on him.
Jesus, why was his pulse racing?
Then her gaze slid to the back of the room and finally he had them. He swallowed, hard, gut tightening, body instantly reacting. Darcey tried to hide it, but he saw the way her lips parted slightly like the air had been forced from her lungs. The way her lashes fluttered then lowered. Her lips quirked up on one side, then she turned away, trying to hide that, as well. But he saw, he saw it all. And fuck, knowing that she was just as affected by him as he was by her? Yeah, he needed that more than he realized. Especially after the last time they were together. The way he’d acted, losing it like he had—he wasn’t sure what to expect.
She headed toward him, dark lashes still lowered as she moved though the tables on her way to him. Her hair was down, and the long, shiny strands made his fingers itch to wrap it around his fist, to hold her while he kissed her, while he swallowed her cries.
He was gone over her. There was no point denying or fighting it.
How it was possible when she’d given him nothing and had held nearly every part of herself back from him, he had no clue. But there it was. An undeniable truth.
She reached the table, eyes locking on him, brow raised in question. “Hey.”
“Hey.” Shit, was that his voice?
Her head tilted to the side, amusement lighting her eyes. “Um…what’s going on? Your message sounded urgent.”
“It was.”
“Okay, so why the restaurant?”
“Because I was super hungry.”
“That was the emergency?”
“Yep. I needed a steak and this place has the best.”
The amusement vanished and she scowled. She was getting pissed off, and it was wrong how much he enjoyed it. “You’re shitting me, right?”
“I would never shit you, Darce, ever.” Despite the current conversation, he put meaning behind those words. He wanted her to know it, believe it more than anything.
