 Hello to all the participants of the Alpha Male Blog Hop, from Sheri in the golden state of California! 


Before I wrote Remedy Maker, my thoughts of mythic romance ran along the lines of Hercules and his many loves. Or the most notorious love affairs of Poseidon, when he pursued his sister, Demeter.

To tell the truth, I can’t name just one Mythic romance as a favorite of mine. There are levels of steamy emotions in the ancient fables, and obstacles the lovers had to overcome in order to be with one another.

But there was never a Happily Ever After!! And that’s the backbone of any romance!

I wanted – NO! Needed – a Mythic story with an HEA. And if I couldn’t find it in the eight century author Hesiod, or in the genius of Homer, then I’d have to create it myself.

Which I did, then I gave it my own little spin — I placed my mythic characters in our present day world — and created a story unlike anything I’ve ever read before.

View the book trailer!  YouTube

Remedy Maker is about Patience, a Boronda Forest Wood Nymph who is living on borrowed time. She’s sick, and knows she’s dying, but there is so much left unanswered in her life —like where's her missing sister.

Rhycious, an ex-military centaur medic whose battle scars are hidden beneath the surface. Moments of high stress trigger hallucinating flashbacks, a condition he continually fights to overcome.

When he meets Patience, a beautiful wood nymph and the race of the late enemy of his people, he learns about unconditional love…and the healing power of a single touch.

If you're looking for a book that will take you away to a mythic world that might exist…

If you love hot guys with insatiable appetites who have a dash of vulnerability…

If you're looking for a sensual read with the power to make you gasp…

This would be the book for you.

Available for purchase from Amazon here.

  10. LOVE the premise of your book, Sheri! And I agree - as much as I like the ancient myths, it always made me sad that (most) didn't end happily!

  11. Mythical world and hot guys, sounds good to me. Thanks for sharing

  12. I just HAD to add your book to my list !

    thanks for the hoppin fun :)


  13. I love Alpha men, because I need someone as confident and dominant as me to have an equal relationship - I hate the feeling that my partner is less powerful than me and cannot make it without me.

    And: my favourite Alpha male is Gabriel from Annette Curtis Klause's Blood and Chocolate.


  14. Thanks for the chance!

  15. Awesome post, Sheri! And an awesome book. :)

  16. Wow, Remedy Maker sounds like one exciting read. I love mythic stories, too, and you're right--the HEA just isn't there. Thanks for bringing the myth and legends to life in the romance genre. Now we can have the myths and the HEA too.


  17. I am a huge fan of myth's so this book sounds so awesome.


  18. Thanks for the hop and a new book to drool over!


  19. Great blog hop, Sheri! I gotta read this book!!!

  22. Love the concept - the cover - the book

  23. Why I love Alpha Males is no real surprise! The perfect Alpha Male for me could be a Vampire, a Scottish Laird, an English Rogue/Gentleman, a Werewolf or Shape-shifter, or a Knight. He’s the rogue who thinks he can’t be reformed into a gentleman. He’s the rough and scarred Scottish laird that has a heart of gold. He’s the werewolf or shape-shifter that needs to heal an aching heart because it took him years to find his true mate. He’s the vampire who has waited decades for that special someone’s blood to sing to him and wake him up. And he’s the knight who can defeat the enemy with a quick swing of his sword, but can’t see the love in front of his face. My Alpha Male has eyes that can see into your soul and are as blue as the sea, or as black as a storm. He’s tall and brooding. His heart can enfold you into its grasp and make you fall in love when he gives it to you freely and completely. He is protective and passionate. In the end he is the one that makes your heart jump and butterflies fly in your stomach, and still kiss you until your legs melt!


  24. Demanding while loving. xstitchdiva at att dot net

  25. Your book sounds phenomenal! :) A perfect alpha male for me would be strong, possessive, flawed... yet gentle :)

  27. An alpha hero has a sexy strong body, confident, a deep voice, and has a take charge personality.

  32. Remedy Maker sounds wonderful :)


  33. I like your website. Very hot. I haven't read any of the books but would like to.

  34. I don't think I've read a book with a centaur as the protagonist before - it sounds great.

    To me, an alpha is someone who can take charge and get the job done.

    Thanks for participating in the hop!

  35. Love the cover and can't wait to read this book!!


  36. What I look or in an alpha male (only in books and television for me though!) is self confident, strong, sexy, and sarcastic! Yep I am easy to please. The only alpha in my real life is my ferocious four pound Pomeranian, Cosmos. :)

    Thanks for participating in the blog hop. This is my first one and I am hooked!

  37. An Alpha Hero would have all the usual tributes one would expect from an Alpha.. Strong, Sexy, Tall, etc. etc. But he would also be intelligent, have a great sense of humor, hard working, definitely one who would go after what or who he wants. Very protective of what he considers his.. family, friends, the woman he wants... A no nonsense taker, confident, passionate and compassionate (even if the compassionate side of him is rather hidden inside him). Oh I could go on and on...
    Thanks for being part of the blog hop and for your giveaway. Remedy Maker sounds like a great book, a definite must for my tbr list.
    Best wishes and continued success

  49. I love an Alpha male who is stubborn and protective. Plus he has to have a senses of humor. Thanks for the giveaway.

  50. my definition of what one looks like changes every time I write a new book.

  51. I love alpha males because they are strong, confident, and will do anything for the woman he loves.


  52. What does an Alpha look like to me?
    So hard to answer - different Alpha heroes appeal to me in different books. In regards to physical appearance of the hero, I like muscles (not huge body-builder types though), strength, intelligent looking eyes, rugged (can be handsome, but not too pretty-boy handsome). In personality, I like him to be confident, take-charge, be protective, intelligent, and love his lady. I love me me some shifter guys too!

  53. That's easy for me.. I have my very own alpha hero.. and he's funny and sweet, fierce and passionate and very vulnerable at times. He's got nice big muscles and can give me a bear hug like none other. raynekitten@gmail.com

  54. I love my alpha male because I know he'll always love and protect me :)

  55. Alphas are strong, confident, sexy, protective and a bit controlling!
    verusbognar (at) gmail (dot) com

  56. How an Aplha looks? I guess there are as many versions of an Alpha as there are women :)
    Mine would be strong, muscular, piercing eyes that can see through you, husky voice. Let's not starting with the personality... otherwise I would keep writing ;)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  57. Alpha males are the best….strong, independent, fiercely protective, but on the inside they are nothing but a big ol’ teddy bear! I love the way their mouths talk filthy, but their eyes portray their sensitive sweet. They can be rough and tough in the bedroom, but still have the gentle caress of an attentive and protective lover. It's all in the heart.....alpha males are the best!

    Thanks for participating in the hop!

    Sounds like a great story.
