At last, I’m so thrilled to be able to share with you the cover for Merla’s story…

Merla Cover

Hope you like it 😀

The story itself is going through final formatting at the moment, and I’m aiming to have it up for pre-order next week.

But in the meantime, here’s the next chapter, and things are really heating up in Fairfall forest 😉

Published now and available from:


Merla Cover

He’s ready to kill her on sight, yet her heart craves him. How can their two worlds ever meet?

Hunted for being born female. Merla Fleetfoot is a werewolf on the run.

All the pack alphas covet her. And the most blood-thirsty of them all—the alpha of the Howler clan—will stop at nothing to have her, including killing her father and brothers. Desperate to keep her family safe, Merla is forced to hide with them in Fairfall forest. But the daemon lord of Fairfall, Renzo Barone, hasn’t taken too kindly to that. His magic is lethal, and if he catches her, he’ll destroy her.

He’s dangerous, but he still fills her dreams, and Merla’s innocent heart is hopelessly lost. Renzo will never want her though. She’s a werewolf, and hence, vermin to him.

Broken-hearted and with the Howlers closing in, Merla’s only choices are to sacrifice herself to the alpha or watch her family die—unless she can somehow convince Renzo she’s more than just a werewolf.

    Alyssia..The book cover for Merle is so incredibly beautiful! The model is stunning and perfect. I love this book so much and can’t wait to read it. I’m dying to read Luca’s book also.
    You are an amazing author and I have all your other books too. I’m working on reading them now.
    I love that you share chapters with us and I look forward to your getting your email every week.
    Thank you so much 😊💕

    The cover for Merla is exquisite! In all of the years I’ve been reading never has a cover fit a character so well. The sultry eyes and the vulnerable mouth tell a story you want to hear. In leaving Lucas mid story I thought Merla wouldn’t be as interesting or exciting. Now I realize, should’ve known, this is Alyssia Leon and that will never happen. I’m so glad I found you…dj
    P.S. Now I want to see Renzo. Will there be a Pinterest board for both books?

      Aww, thank you so much ❤️ It took me ages to find an image that fit the character in my head, but as soon as I saw this model I just knew she embodied the story perfectly. Unfortunately, I haven’t come across a perfect photo for Renzo yet, but maybe that’s a good thing because a little mystery is always nice. I’ll leave him to all of your imaginations 🙂
      Also, I’ll be getting back to Luca’s story once I’ve published Merla’s. I ended up being a little scattered about these two books because Merla’s was actually unplanned (I wrote it on a whim). But don’t worry I won’t leave Luca’s story untold.

      So happy to hear you like the stories 😀
      You haven’t missed Luca’s book at all. I’m actually writing the final chapters now. Once Merla’s book is published, I’ll come back to posting more chapters from Luca’s story until that book too is ready for publishing (early 2019 if all goes to plan).
