Emma Lee-Johnson lives in England. She is an Indie Author who began writing on Dreame and is now publishing her books as they are completed. She is a hopeless romantic with a gutter mind and a potty mouth. She loves all kinds of romance and I like stories with a bit of a bite and edge and a strong female.

Question 1 If you could pick one thing to remove/change from any of your books or book what would it be?
I probably cuss too much, especially in the more aggressive or passionate chapters.
Question 2 What part of the book was the most fun to write?
I loved the small conflicts between each couple, like with Aiden and Eva her not understanding some of his wolf references in particular calling Summer a pup and Eva being offended. One of my favorite parts to write has to be Aiden’s vivid daydream while Eva is showering, having his wolf laugh at him still tickles me even after reading it dozens of times.
Question 3 What is the significance of the title?
Without giving too much of the plot away the title is double-edged, which Alpha does Eva belong to? Ultimately it doesn’t matter, she is a strong independent woman who belongs to no one, no matter what these men think she isn’t a possession. She is there by choice.
Question 4 If you’re planning a series, can you share a tiny bit about your plans for it
The sequel ‘The Alpha’s Heir’ should be available on Amazon around April (all being well in these unpredictable times). This is the work-in-progress blurb: Eva and Aiden are now mated and marked and he starts to make plans for Eva’s Luna training however, her recently revealed father asks them to stall because he has a proposition. Instead of being Aiden’s Luna, he wants her to become the next Alpha of the Moon Stone Pack because she is his rightful heir. How will Xavier Junior take this news? Salma continues to search for the people responsible for poisoning her papa and gets shocked when she finally tracks down her secret half-brother. She and Alejandro continue to successfully lead as a power couple but will revelations tear them apart? Amber is facing an uncertain future with charges being brought against her for killing a member of the Moon Stone by using Unnecessary force. She is on the verge of an emotional crisis as she and Aiden try to uncover the truth about their mother and why she wasn’t part of their lives. She needs Preston more than ever but he has other things on his mind too. At this present time that will conclude this story, however, I haven’t ruled out a mafia spin-off in the future.
Question 5 What’s your favorite spot to visit in your own country? And what makes it so special to you?
My favorite place in my country is a place called Grasmere in the Lake District (which is an area of natural, outstanding beauty and a National Park in The North of England.) It is home to the famous William Wordsworth and the inspiration behind Beatrix Potters Peter Rabbit. The village is picturesque and every time I visit I am so inspired and fall more in love with the place. The jewel in the crown is the Gingerbread Shop which sells THE BEST GINGERBREAD IN THE WORLD™.
Question 6 What’s your favorite writing snack or drink?
As I am English I love a cup of tea and a biscuit when I’m writing.
Question 7 If your book were made into a movie, which actors would play your characters?
I’m so sad… I don’t know any current actors 🤣 I’d like to think that my book would use relatively unknown actors and this would be the role to catapult their careers. (Oh I’m a dreamer 🙈🤣)
Question 8 What was your favorite song while writing this book? Do you have a playlist I can share?
I do have a playlist, it’s detailed in the book but I will send it to you.
Question 9 Describe your writing space?
My children call it ‘Mega Desk’ I have my PC, a desk calendar with inspirational quotes, my corkboard has photos of my books on as well as my HP time-turner. I have a coaster for my cups of tea and a biscuit tin. I have my Alexa Show so I can play music on demand, ask for data or information, and time myself/set reminders and alarms.
Question 10 What advice do you have for writers/authors?
Don’t compare yourself to other writers, everyone’s journey is unique. Enjoy the journey 💕
Question 11 If you had to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, but all your human needs—such as food and water—were taken care of, what two items would you want to have with you?
My Kindle Paperwhite so I would never be without entertainment and pen and paper so I could write down all my cool experiences on the deserted island and when I get rescued I would have a best-seller waiting to be read 💕
Question 12 If you could compare yourself with any animal, which would it be and why?
There was a trend for unicorns and mermaids recently but I have always seen myself more like a narwhal. I buck the trend and no one could accuse me of being like everyone else.

The Alpha’s Heir – Coming soon to Amazon
*** Preston ***
I’ve never felt so shitty in all my life. Even when I thought I was going to lose Amber when she struggled to commit, there had been hope that everything would work out. But now I feel like I have fallen into a black hole. Everything seems bleak and hopeless.
I have dreams that turn into nightmares. Amber is running in front of me but no matter how fast I run or how hard I try I can’t reach her. I can feel the ends of her hair when I stretch out, but she remains elusive to me.
I would wake covered in sweat with a scream stuck in my throat and my heart beating like an overactive drummer. Once or twice, I woke up crying and I was powerless to stop my tears from falling. What am I going to do? What can I do?
I start to feel like there is a large hole in my chest and Zack has even stopped howling all night long. When he was loud, I prayed for his silence but now I am frightened I may never hear him again.
I didn’t make a conscious decision to get drunk but once I started to drink the whiskey, I found it easier to block everything out. At one point everything seemed hilarious, I had laughed maniacally at the most boring and unextraordinary of things.
And then I passed the happy phase and started to puke up, in the toilet, all down my front and even in the lounge we had just finished decorating, I crashed out on the floor and the next day I couldn’t bring myself to get up. I just wanted to curl up in a ball and die.
When the rest of the pack tried to mindlink me I blocked all attempts. I cannot deal with my own thoughts and feelings, never mind theirs too.
I even ignored the attempts my future Luna made to try and link. I just wanted Amber, but I couldn’t have her. Not now and it was looking more certain that she wouldn’t be mine in the future either. My heart ached with loneliness and sadness.
Out of nowhere I felt a kick in my side and sensed someone was in my room. Nikki! So, I jumped up with every intention of hurting her until I met the eyes of my future Luna who by this point, I had pinned by the throat.
“Eva! What are you doing scaring me like that?” I shouted out both relieved and infuriated that she wasn’t Nikki.
Finally, the dam burst, and I could feel my worries start to pour out to Eva. Before I told her everything I needed to freshen up and get changed. I felt rotten.
I had a shower and Eva cleaned up the apartment a bit and made a pot of tea when suddenly we were both overcome with sadness and pain. Eva is confused by what that means but I automatically know what has caused it; Amber is in pain, and Aiden too. We were feeling their emotions through our bonds, so I frantically tried to call my mate. I need to know she is okay.
“It’s just going straight to voicemail. For fucks sake. I need to know if she is okay. I can’t take it anymore!” I say and the desperation and futility in my own voice claws at my heart. I am hurting more than ever now.
“Preston. Sit down. Please. Just sit down and talk to me. None of this is helpful to you or Amber. Tell me what is troubling you while we wait for Aiden to return your call.”
“It’s all such a mess. I don’t even know where to start Eva. It all began the day I gave evidence at Ellis’ trial. The man Amber cut down from the Moon Stone pack… his widow has been onto our lands and made me a proposition. She wants me to reject Amber and take her as my chosen mate.
She told me she has the influence to have Amber imprisoned for the rest of her life or even executed. In exchange for rejecting Amber and accepting Nikki as my chosen mate, Nikki will drop all charges against Amber. Amber would be safe and free.”
From the look on her face, I can see she is at a loss of what to say in response to that. “Why didn’t you tell us? Does Amber or Aiden know?” Eva is in a state of shock at what I have told her. I can see the worry and concern in her eyes, and it forces tears to fall from my own.
“No-one knows, you’re the only one I’ve told. But Eva there is an even bigger issue to contend with too, I think she might be part witch or something because she was able to get onto our lands undetected. She was even able to locate me deep in the forest when I was patrolling.
I don’t know how I can keep Amber safe anymore. I don’t want anyone else, only her, it’s always been her. And it always will be. But if I don’t do as Nikki says, then she’ll make sure Amber never sees the light of day again.”
She pats my shoulder in an attempt at comforting me, while she contemplates the information I have given her and what our next move should be.
She stands up. My tiny Luna and she has a look of determination in her eyes now. “I am going to be Luna of this pack and I need to start making decisions and working through problems.
Therefore, Beta Preston, I think I need to pay my beloved Alpha father a visit. I have some important matters to discuss with him. Can you arrange that for me please and then we will have a better idea of what we are facing?
But look, don’t worry so much. You are not alone and as soon as Aiden and Amber return, we can all work on this together.” I smiled back at her, and even though she is much smaller than me and a few years younger than me in a way, I feel like she is helping me like she is the big sister and I’m her little brother.
I miss Amber. The nights are unbearable. I can feel her heartache, her sorrow and her pain and the silence between us just increases my worries about where she is and if she is safe.
Then I torment myself some more by wondering and worrying about how long she would be safe for once she returns home. I refuse to face a future with her, my mate, MINE. I have waited so long for her; I am not prepared to just give up on us.
I’d rather die than live the rest of my life without her.
With renewed purpose I do my Luna’s bidding and contact her father, Alpha Xavier, and arrange for Eva to visit him today. Alpha Xavier sounds elated that his daughter has requested to see him and offers to send an escort for her, but I explained that Eva wanted to keep it low key and would be escorted by myself and her Gamma.
“I look forward to seeing her.” He replied enthusiastically, I felt a smidge bad that the visit was not to get to know him but to address his pack members threats against me. Not bad enough to correct his misunderstanding though.
Within an hour, Eva has settled her little girl, Summer, with her Omega and Max has left the rest of the Gamma Guard to protect her. Max asks Eva if she would like to drive but she refuses, and I get a member of my Beta team to drive instead.
On the surface, Eva looks calm and poised but both Max and I detect her nervousness. “Preston. Remember as soon as you spot that bloody woman you must mindlink me straight away.” She reminds me for the third time.
“I will Luna, I promise.” I assure her as I link Max and ask him to help her calm down. Max starts to talk to us both about little Summer and her chasing a squirrel yesterday.
“She was so cute, wasn’t she Eva, she would run all the way up to it and then squeal and giggle when it ran away again. She kept shouting ‘look mummy a squiggle’ it was the cutest thing I have ever seen”.
Eva smiles in recollection and I quickly thank Max for distracting her. I think Max being Eva’s Gamma Wolf is a perfect combination. They seem to get along very well together, and I feel assured in Max’s ability to not only keep her safe but to tune into her feelings and support her when she needs it.
We are waved through border security; Alpha Xavier has prepared them for our visit.
The packhouse is around five minutes from the border and when we stop outside Alpha Xavier is already there ready to greet us.
“Eva, you look beautiful, welcome back to the Moon Stone Territory.” He walks over to his daughter and Eva’s nervousness is unmistakable, she blushes and bites her lip.
“Thank you for allowing us to visit at short notice, father. There is a matter I need to discuss with you immediately”.
As we walk into the packhouse my eyes meet Nikki’s LUNA THERE NOW.
Eva swoops like an avenging archangel and collars Nikki.
“And this is the topic of our discussion. Get in there now.” Eva tells Nikki and we all listen to her. I realise for the first time Eva isn’t just a werewolf, or a future Luna.
She is The Alpha’s Heir
