THE ALPHA GLADIATOR by Beth D. Carter

THE ALPHA GLADIATOR
by Beth D. Carter

Ravage is the fierce Alpha of his people, the Lycans. During the mating celebration, while their guards are down, his people are attacked and twelve are captured for the gladiator games of Kappuah, including Aleirah, the woman Ravage wants above all others.

He tries to resist, but he’s unwilling to see his men and his female harmed by the ruthless tyrants of the games. He must make the ultimate sacrifice of taking lives if he’s to protect his people.

But there is one secret no one knows, and Ravage is more than willing to show how some myths are based in truth, by letting his inner wolf come out to destroy all those who enslaved them.

EXCERPT
He pulled her away from both bonfires, into the woods, letting the darkness shroud them. Sometimes it was easier to let go of secrets and fears when the other person was cloaked in shadow. The night had always been a friend of the Lycanis people, so Ravage used the moon to his advantage.

“I remember you from when we were children,” he murmured.

“I remember you too,” she said softly.

He grinned, pleased with her answer. She may deny that she wanted to be his mate, but the pheromones coming off her body indicated otherwise. Aleirah found him desirable. Whether or not she wanted to be his mate, her body had already begun changing to accept his claiming bite. Now, he just had to get her to admit it, and he wasn’t above using seduction on his part.

AN INTERVIEW WITH BETH
-What inspired you to become a writer?

I began reading my mom’s Harlequin Romance novels when I was around ten. I loved the beautiful covers and the happy-ever-afters. Then I got into reading the Zebra Historicals. I think my fate was pretty much sealed by them. The amazing stories pressed between the pages had me creating my own.

-What draws you to romance?

Sometimes the world can be an ugly place. I want to create a beautiful world for someone to escape to, if only for a moment, where love conquers all.

-Give us a fun or interesting fact you learned researching this book.

I used the Spartacus revolt as the influence of this story. I had to do a lot of research about the gladiators, what it was like for them, the politics behind the games, and how they were treated. I have one more book planned for this Warriors of the Arena line, and I’ll be writing more about the women/slave aspect of that time.

-Which of your characters would you go out for drinks with?

The heroine, Aleirah, is pretty bad ass and strong. I wouldn’t mind knocking back a beer or two with her as she told me about her hunky Alpha, Ravage!

-For aspiring writers, any tips?

Write something every day, even if it’s one line.

-Is there a genre you could never write? Which and why?

Horror, maybe. I don’t think my mind works in ways of dreaming up sadistic, frightening stuff. I don’t think I’d want to live inside Stephen King’s head.

ABOUT BETH
I like writing about the very ordinary girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances, so my heroines will probably never be lawyers, doctors or corporate highrollers. I try to write characters who aren't cookie cutters and push myself to write complicated situations that I have no idea how to resolve, forcing me to think outside the box. I love writing characters who are real, complex and full of flaws, heroes and heroines who find redemption through love. I love to hear from readers so I’ve made it really easy to find me on the web:
