Champions…………THANK YOU! Pack of Dawn and Destiny is turning out to be my best selling series so far, and you guys have rallied behind Pip and Greyson in a jaw-dropping way! I thought I had two or three days to get the short ready for you. HAH! You showed me!
Friday night I went to sleep, happy that you Champions said you enjoyed Fated and the end of the Pack of Dawn and Destiny trilogy, thinking I had plenty of time to finish editing the extra short story. I woke up Saturday morning to the beautiful and shocking surprise of 200 reviews! Suddenly I had a whole lot of panic because the short story wasn’t corrected, and my typo hunter’s computer was broken.
I figured you all wouldn’t mind if I let it slip until today while I my typo hunter and I texted back and forth trying to figure out an alternative way for her to read it, and then I woke up to THIS. 812 reviews/ratings, on a book that launched Friday. Champions! I don’t even know what to say! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’m so humbled, so happy, and so appreciative. Thank you for your loyalty, I’m so happy you enjoyed Pip and Greyson’s story, and I really hope it made you laugh.
To celebrate the launch, I have a short story! But, first, a bit of background! Typically I like to do more light-hearted/100% fluff extras, but I’d noticed a lot of people were curious about Greyson’s family, so I decided to do a short about that. Unfortunately, that meant it wouldn’t be as sweet as I typically like.
However…I was going to keep this under wraps because I won’t be able to work on it for about two weeks (I’ve got a few top priority things I NEED to take care of this week, like taxes) so I wasn’t going to tell you all, but, hey, you Champions got Fated over 800 reviews in less than three days so I think you deserve it. I’m going to write a second short story about Chase and Chrysanthe, and this one will be 100% pure sugary fluff.
I’ve been planning to write it since I was about halfway through Fated and I wanted to show you all what happens between the two of them, so I’m pretty excited about it! (Although, if you haven’t read Court of Midnight and Deception yet, this is your hint to read it so you’ll be ready for the short!) But yes, keep an eye out, and in a little over two weeks, you should get to see their story.
Finally, what you’ve all been waiting for, here’s the short story!

I hope you enjoy it even if it isn’t pure fluff, and thanks again for all of your support and love, Champions. You’re the best readers an author could ask for! 😉
Can’t wait for the new short story! Sounds fun!
And the whole charmed tea thing is hilarious, I loved it.
I am dying for Chase and Chrysanthe’s story!!!
I really need to know what happened, and what’s going to happen.
Please get it done fast, I’m begging you!
The Paragon strikes again!! Killian, Leila and Greyson should probably team up and make charmed tea illegal with how much it has affected them! I am really excited for the Chase and Chrysanthe short. And I have to confess something.
I truly wasn’t that thaaat excited for pack of Dawn and Destiny. I mean sure, I wanted to read it, but there wasn’t that level of jumping in your seat excitement that I had for the other books. That was because I knew Greyson would be the hero, and the only time we saw him was when he came to Leilas party with Pip. He seemed a photocopy of Chase, all obsessed with duty and work and things. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Chase, but reading three books full of werewolves like him? That was not really something I was excited for. Buuuuuut, then I got to know the true trickster personality of Greyson and that all of the pack wasn’t that much of a workaholic. I was SO relieved. Also I think that Pip and Hazel meeting each other will probably be Killian and Greyson’s worst nightmare! They are really similar, and both have zero sense of self preservation when it comes to the people they love. They could probably stir up a good bit of trouble( especially if our favorite fae queen joins them as well…)
This short story was great! I’m glad the tea came back! Too bad Pip doesn’t know Hazel well yet or she would have been warned. I’m also excited for the Chase and Chrysanthe story. I do wonder though…will we get a short with Killian and Hazel’s wedding or Leila helping Killian pick the pony ever?
OMG so excited for the Chase short story. I love that couple. I honestly think that this trilogy is the best yet and that reflected in the reviews, thanks for an awesome journey and excited for the next one in this world. Now off I go to read the short story.
I inhaled this book and this short story. You hit it out of the park once again. I seriously love your books. To the point that I will reread pretty much all of them while I (impatiently lol) wait for the next one. If you ever need another early reader, or a proofreader… I volunteer.
I loved the tea party! The Paragon is probably my favourite character. He is so sneaky. You get the feeling he pretty much knows what’s going on and is playing a long game.
I have a question about Teresa (sorry if it already got answered – I haven’t been online for a while due to Covid.) I understand Teresa can’t be a wolf but can she become another type of shifter? I am assuming the bite is like a virus – just because you become immune to one virus doesn’t make you immune to them all. If so will she go down that route? Thank you for a fantastic story. Looking forward to Chrys and Chase’s story.
I loved the short! So much fun, but also enough reality to hint at why Greyson became the person he is. I loved it!
Thank you for letting us know more about Graysons back story. I think it makes sense his family would be concerned for Greyson since this was such an unusual mate bond. Glad to see the Paragon’s tea came to the rescue again!
Fantastic story. Loved how the Paragon’s tea showed up again. Wish the switch from nasty to nice had taken longer – but loved that they were so snarky.

Love this series and usually I am not a werewolf fan but this changed my mind. So excited for the Chrys and Chase story I was hoping we would get one plus Greyson’s family it’s like Christmas! Thank you for sharing your gift for stories with all of us.
God Bless you and I am praying for you and your health issues.
I didn’t realize the tea was from the Paragon until Pip mentioned it had a floral scent!
Then I started chuckling until the end of the story!!!
Hahahaha!! The TEA!!!
That was awesome!
And it was good to meet Greyson’s family👍💕
Hallelujah the tea got used. I was wondering if it would ever be used.
Oh yes, I had plans! If I can plot it correctly, most of my Magiford heroines will be subjected to the Paragon’s tea at one point or another, muwahahaha!
Paragon will become quite infamous for his charmed tea then.
