What Are AmberPax™ Collections?

Simply put, AmberPax™ Collections are groups of five stories centered around a specific theme. Each story within an AmberPax™ is released individually, on the same day as the others, and can be purchased separately, but these five stories can also be purchased as a single unit (the full AmberPax™) at a discount, currently 25%. Generally, an AmberPax™ is similar to an "anthology" of stories, but instead of the titles being released in only a single volume (file), they are also available individually. These AmberPax™ Collections are sold exclusively through our website and only in electronic format.

THIS BLOG is for news about the Pax Collections - follow it to keep up with releases, find early news of the upcoming collections, and share Pax fun and chat with the authors!

All Amber Paxes can be bought at Amber Quill HERE.

The Birth of the Bay Wolves by Vivien Dean

It's been a couple years since I've written a series, but that's because I hadn't found the right stories to tell that demanded starting another one. Oh, sure, I met secondary characters in some of my stories that begged me to give them their own romance--and they probably will get them at some point--but it wasn't until I started working on my story for the Growl Pax that I discovered a world that begged me to explore it further. That's how the Bay Wolves series was born.
Boundless began with the idea of reuniting high school lovers, one of which had since become a werewolf. As I was figuring out just why these two had been separated, the politics of the world they inhabited started to deepen and grow darker. It became a world where werewolves are known to all of society, but not being entirely human, they're devoid of any real rights. Questions started to arise almost immediately. How are werewolves treated if they're not seen as equal? What would be the repercussions of being a werewolf in this kind of society? How far would humans go in their treatment of werewolves?

These are the questions my two lovers face. Denny is a San Francisco cop, whose brother secretly fights for wolf rights. He's been separated from his high school boyfriend, Elijah, since the summer after they graduated, but he's never known why Elijah disappeared until the night he helps his brother rescue a group of captive wolves. Elijah is one of them, and together, they have to figure out how to go on from there.

While Boundless is Denny and Elijah's love story, it's just the first of more to come. The world they live in can be a dark and dangerous place, especially if you're a werewolf. Seeing how other couples learn to exist within its constraints, and maybe fight back like Denny does, is the whole point of the Bay Wolves stories to come.


Boundless by Vivien Dean is now available at Amber Allure.
