Bookworms & Alphas Book 2


The man they call the beast, sworn off love, meets the bookish beauty who thinks that love exists only in books.

When Bronte Beltran finds out that her next assignment is cataloging the famous Aubyn Hall library, she’s ecstatic. But when she finds out they call the owner the Beast of Aubyn Hall, not so much. A week in a dusty library should be right up her alley. But a wrong word at the wrong time and she might just find out what exactly is beastly about the Beast of Aubyn Hall.

Bookworms & Alphas Book 2


“Welcome to Aubyn Hall,” the butler said, “please, wait here.”

He turned to the right and walked down the hallway as we looked at each other in disbelief.

“Oh … my … God,” Rachel whispered, staring at us wide-eyed, “this is—”

“Unbelievable!” Devlin finished instead of her.

“I’m never going back,” Vanessa said, looking around in awe.

“Look at those curtains,” Rachel said and stepped over to the window, then rubbed the lavish, dark blue fabric between her fingers, “they must be priceless.”

“So this is the beast’s lair,” I said, “I only wonder … is it the face that is beastly or the manners?”

“Maybe it’s both!”

At the sound of a deep, smooth baritone, I froze. Razor-sharp and low, the voice sent chills down my spine and I immediately realized that I just blurted out the worst possible thing at the worst possible moment. Me! In my entire life, I have never said anything to anyone before thinking about it twice. Not a word, not a syllable. Never!

I looked up, only to see Rachel, Vanessa, and Devlin staring at me, wide-eyed and silent. I slowly turned around and felt the color draining from my face.

At that moment, I received an answer to my question.

It wasn’t the face.

The face wasn’t the beastly part.

    Good morning, Alex, and welcome back to Karen’s Killer Book Bench. I love this period and the alpha male and librarian trope. The sparks fly! Love it. Thanks for sharing your book with us today!

    • Alex says:

      Hi, Karen, and thank you for the warm welcome! I’m very excited about this book and glad to share it with all of you. This whole series is great fun for me to write because it’s all about my favorite heroines and heroes: bookworms who believe that love exists only in books and alphas who prove them wrong. Thank you for letting me be a part of your great blog!

    Hi Alex, thank you for joining us and sharing your excerpt. Your book sounds interesting. A fun trope – alpha male/librarian.
