Caly
Do you dream of ridiculously hot men? Okay, maybe you do. (And yes, I'm well aware I should lay off the romance books before bed.) But do you actually ever meet those men you dream about in real life? I didn't think so. That's probably a good thing though because I have... And these men from my dreams have done nothing but pull the rug of reality out from under me... which was how I fell and ended up in a world that I thought only existed in romance books.

My name is Caly (AKA Callie) and I'm just an ordinary single woman living the LA dream... paycheck to paycheck. Except whose dream is it? I'm not really sure... but it's not my dream. Especially because I have really weird dreams... like really weird. Then again, everyone has weird dreams, right?



Blake
I am an alpha wolf shifter and leader of Orion's Order, a pack of... well, not wolves. We're an unconventional pack of highly skilled specian hunters that do one thing: hunt the evil in our world. And we were hired by SILE (Species Investigative Law Enforcement) to hunt a bloodthirsty criminal who is infamously untraceable. That was until an irresistible female brought an unexpected twist to our hunt and set things in motion... a motion that has left my pack and our world forever changed.

Welcome to The Order and a secret world of magic and mystery, where a pack of unlikely friends find love and fight against an ancient evil force.

"It has the elements you need - love, pain, heartache, action, revenge, some light comedy, etc. I thought the sex scenes were SPOT ON! Like damn those were great. I really felt immersed in it at times and I felt transported into the story." ★★★★★

“The descriptions and imagery are on point. It’s easy to picture the characters and scenes. I like the multiple POV shifts to better understand and immerse myself in the character’s mind. The sex scenes are steamy and kept me turning the pages." ★★★★★

“...if you are looking for a book that punches you in your face, right out the gate, with unrealistic action, tasteless sex scenes, and emotional turmoil, this won't be it. Go watch Shameless instead. But if you are looking for something that unfolds at a pace that gives you time to decipher the characters, setting, and complexities of the story that is to come, then this is for you...” ★★★★★

“...at one point in the book, a group of characters are all introduced in a short amount of time. While this might not be standard protocol for fictional stories, it's realistic. Trust that it was done with purposeful intent. Without giving away too much about the story, you get to learn about a pack of males in their environment, doing what males do...” ★★★★★

Excerpt 4 First Encounter — Caly/Blake


“I had another dream about Mr. Mysterious. You know, with the gorgeous golden
eyes…” She exhaled out a dreamy sigh. “Except…” Her thoughts trailed off as she
recalled just how strange the dream ended up. She lazily reached her hand
toward the sound of Felix’s purrs, as if they were a homing beacon. Her hand
landed on what felt like jean fabric on something solid and warm. The instant
contact was made, it flexed.

Muscle? she silently
questioned and her brows furrowed slightly. She coaxed her heavy eyelids open
and she was met with a pair of impossibly golden eyes… the eyes belonging to
the handsome man in her dreams… who just happened to be sitting on her bed next
to her.

“Nevermind
Felix… I’m still dreaming," Caly said with a relaxed half-smile. God. This man is taking over my dreams… But
she wasn’t complaining.

“Mr.
Mysterious?” Blake teased with a slight curve of his lips.

She
sleepily laughed. You’re not
supposed to know your own nickname.” She looked down and saw that Felix was
curled up in his lap purring in utter bliss. Damn if that wasn’t cute. And damn
if he wasn’t even more gorgeous this close up. She scratched Felix behind the
ears in just the spot he loved. Even
if this is a dream, if Felix likes you, then you can’t be that bad,” she
admitted with another lazy chuckle. “He hissed at the last guy I brought home.
And it turned out Felix was right. That guy was an ass.”

Blake
steered his thoughts away from the sudden desire to go find whoever this guy
was and teach him a lesson. Jesus. Stay
focused.

“Caly,
this is not a dream.”

“Yes
it is. How else is the most handsome man with the gorgeous golden eyes from my
dreams here, in my bed?” Her body was reacting in a very feminine way to his
masculine presence. She wanted him and her body knew that.

There
was another curve of his lips and his chest puffed out a little more than
necessary. What was this female doing
to him? Focus, he repeated the silent
order.

“You
know that I’m Blake from Orion’s Order. But what I don’t know is how you know
that.”

Scenting
the slightest hint of her arousal in the air, his body began to react in
response. Jesus. Her scent is like a drug,
Blake thought on an internal groan.

Hell, this is a
dream, Caly
thought. So, who was she to deny herself? Besides, with all that eye gazing in
the other dreams, okay minus the kidnapping one, it felt like she knew him on
some level. Still utterly relaxed and now a little sinfully playful, she closed
the distance between them and curled up against his body—his very warm and
muscled body. With a graceful leap, Felix padded off the bed to his favorite
sun spot on the window sill, hidden behind the curtain where it trapped the
most heat.

Wow. He smells
so good.
It was a dark, musky, masculine scent. Natural though—not some artificial
store-bought scent. She sighed deeply. This was turning out to be a very good
dream. She curled up next to him. She fit perfectly as if her body was meant to
be at his side.

Blake
went to put his arm around her shoulder and stopped midway. What was he doing? Focus damn it. Since when had a female
had him reacting like this?


About the Author:

M.C. Solaris’s life took an unexpected turn during the super blood moon eclipse on January 20, 2019. She woke up and began writing bios for her imaginary friends that she met that day. As soon as the pen hit the paper (or fingertips to the iPhone), she couldn’t stop. It was kind of like one of those fire hydrants, spewing copious amounts of water all over the place. The characters and their stories just flowed out of her. She is honored to be the scribe, getting to share her friends’ stories. You can read all about her gifted friends in the Orion’s Order series (Book 1 is Calypso’s Heart).

On a personal note, M.C. Solaris is actually the pseudonym of Marina Schroeder, women’s health enthusiast and lover of all things paranormal romance (PNR) and happily ever after (HEA). When she is not curled up on the sofa with her partner’s oversized hoodie, a PNR novel, peppermint tea, and one of her three cats, you will find her either at the ocean with her toes in the sand or in a forest hugging a tree. Well truthfully? There is one more place you might find her: trolling the aisles of Whole Foods for a satisfying combination of salty and sweet while hiding in her partner’s hoodie… like any proper PNR-writing introvert.
