Do You Believe In Magic?
By: Poppy Dennison

There are so many types of magic in the entertainment industry these days—heck, just check the TV Guide for the paranormal show du jour. Have you ever wondered what it is about the witches, demons, and vampires that draw us in, make us beg for more?

I know I have. Other than the oh-so-obvious lust that the Winchester brothers inspire, there’s something else that pulls me into paranormal worlds and keeps me so invested in this genre.

For me, it’s the mystery of the unknown—the what ifs of the universe that make me wonder: is it real? Are there really vampires with souls a la Angel or bad boy werewolves like the mysterious Derek Hale? (insert Poppy whimpering here…please, please can there be Angels and Dereks in the world? And don’t get me started on the Alcide Herveauxs…Pretty please with sugar on top may I have my own Alcide? I would so do bad things to him.)

There’s something so romantic about these fantastic men (and women) with that little bit extra. When I sat down to write the Triad series, I wanted to capture some of that extra spice and romance in my works.

Enter my very own Alpha werewolf, Gray Townsend. Gray’s not your typical alpha—oh he’s powerful and handsome, but he’s a family man raising his young son and trying to hold his pack together. He meets his mate in Mind Magic, the bumbling apprentice mage Simon Osbourne, and the two have to fight there way through a world in which different types of magic aren’t allowed to mix.

In Body Magic, the second book in the Triad series, Gray’s best friend Cade Montgomery takes center stage. Gray has brought in a security specialist to help protect the pack, and something about Rocky Harris rubs Cade the wrong way.

With three types of conflicting magic in their world, things are going to be rocky for sure. (Pardon the pun.) Maybe if these two werewolves can figure out the secret of body magic, they’ll find a happy ending of their own.


A pack is only as strong as its weakest member. Rocky Harris knows how the system works. He’s been on the bottom rung his whole life. But when his alpha consigns him to the High Moon Pack to help them improve security, he finds his beliefs not just challenged but outright assaulted.

Cade Montgomery’s confidence took a hit when the pack’s cubs were kidnapped on his watch. He’s prepared to do anything to protect his family, even if it means working with Rocky. Maybe Cade doesn’t trust Rocky, but with the turmoil surrounding pack Alpha Gray’s unpopular decision to break tradition and mate with a mage named Simon, Cade knows more threats are coming.

Then someone declares war on shifters and puts the entire pack in danger. Cade and Rocky will need each other’s strengths to survive the impending battle—and the power of their growing attraction.

A sassy southern lady, Poppy Dennison developed an obsession with things that go bump in the night in her early years after a barn door flew off its hinges and nearly squashed her. Convinced it was a ghost trying to get her attention, she started looking for other strange and mysterious happenings around her. Not satisfied with what she found, Poppy has traveled to Greece, Malaysia and England to find inspiration for the burly bears and silver foxes that melt her butter. Her love of paranormal continues to flourish nearly thirty years later, and she writes steamy love stories about the very things that used to keep her up all night. If her childhood ghost is lucky, maybe one day she’ll give him his own happily ever after.
