Dark Alpha's Embrace by Donna Grant

Death, here…We’re in the second month of the year, February, and on the 14th day of the month, many may have celebrated Valentine’s Day. While some will say this is a ‘marketing holiday’ made only to profit on LOVE, others may proclaim that one should not just wait until this day to show affection or declare their love for one another. I will say this… the life of a human is short… if you’re with the one you love now, show them every day that you love and adore them. Not with material things but with how you treat them! Then there of those of you that may say that I am Death, what do I know of love? I’ve been around long enough to learn a lot. Let’s leave it at that, shall we?

What were we chatting about? Reapers? Relationships? Love? Oh yeah… Valentine’s Day… This got me thinking about the different aspect of romance or romantic gestures… I remember a time where I’d observed individuals making mix tapes of songs that represented their love or relationship… now it would be known as a playlist. This got me thinking of music and how it plays such a big role in romance… how people remember certain events in their lives and how a song can bring back memories.

I found this article recently that had listed the “50 best love songs for Valentine’s Day” as the title, but upon further reading of the article, they said that they “arrived at what we believe to be the 50 best love songs ever recorded.” Uhm…. THIS I had to see… I mean, I’ve been around for ‘ever’ so this had me curious…. I’m going to share with you the top 10 only but you are more than welcome to visit them and check out the entire list of fifty songs.

#10 “At Last” by Etta James

#9 “My Girl” by the Temptations

#8 “Your Song” by Elton John

#7 “Love” by Mica Levi

#6 “Something” by The Beatles

#5 “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green

#4 “I Say a Little Prayer” by Aretha Franklin

#3 “I Only Have Eyes for You” by The Flamingos

#2 “Wonderful World” by Sam Cooke

#1 “God Only Knows” by the Beach Boys

These songs have truly standed the test of time as does love. What do you think of the top 10 songs they put together? What would be your top 3 songs on YOUR playlist?

Oh before I go… you have been following the tour, right? I think I’m going to pay a visit to Wicked Faerie’s Tales and Reviews on 2/23. I have a feeling you’re going to want to be there.


               Kyran stretched his legs out and crossed them at the ankles. “You’re needed, River. It’s not by accident that you know what you do about the Fae and were put in our path. You’re destined to aid us in this.”

               When she didn’t respond, he tried again. “Think of all the innocents, like your family and Jordyn’s, who were killed. You have a chance to help us put an end to such things for everyone. The half-Fae will no longer need to fear for their lives. And I promise you I’ll figure out who has hunted your family and end it.”

               Her resigned look cut through him. “You can’t do that. You work for Death. I doubt you’ll be given leave to help me.”

               “Let me deal with that. Whether you help me or not, I’m going to find out why the Dark are hunting your family. And then I’m going to make sure it never happens again.”

               River swung her gaze to him. She tucked a long length of hair behind her ear. “Do I have your word you’ll stop whoever is after me?”

               “Aye.” Kyran held out his hand.

               River stared at it a moment before she leaned up and took it. They shook, her small hand in his. “Then I’ll help you.”

About The Book

Dark Alpha's Embrace

An exclusive new series from New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant!

There’s no escaping a Reaper. I’m an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I’m coming for you…

I’m a warrior. My unbreakable determination, my backbone of steel define me. As a Reaper who does Death’s bidding, weakness is a word I don’t understand. Until a stunning librarian stirs emotions deep within me I’ve never felt before. Her soft curves blunt the sharp edges of my soul, crushing my defenses – yet make me stronger. But underneath those wide eyes and fierce femininity, she has a weapon, one she won’t hesitate to use. And when the Dark begin their deadly descent, we’ll need each other’s love and protection…or risk fracturing apart.
