He dances for him only. Read a snippet from MINK OMEGA IN HIDING #WeWriWa #MPreg #romance #LGBTQ #PNR


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

I missed last weekend, but I'm back again to share from a new story. And I'm excited to say that this story was just contracted this past week to Decadent Publishing. It's the second book in my Shifter Towers series, MINK OMEGA IN HIDING.

Set-up: This is from the beginning of the story in Roan's point of view. (Punctuation changed from original version to fit ten sentence limit.)


As a child, I often believed standing on stage performing for enraptured spectators would be the best feeling in the world. I was so wrong. In the audience, drunk and horny wolf shifters fixated on me, waiting for me to sway my hips and peel off my clothing one piece at a time.

Even though I knew they were there, I couldn’t look at any one of them. If I did, I would freeze, be completely unable to perform. Instead, I imagined stripping for someone else, someone from long ago. Thoughts of my first love helped me through work, and every day at home when Tuan wanted me to perform sexual favors for him and several of his gang members, or decided he wanted to remind me of his dominance with his fists.

Memories of my first love helped me through it all. He’d never loved me back, not in the way I’d wanted him to. But he’d always treated me as an equal, even if he was an alpha and I was only an omega.


Mink Omega in Hiding 
Shifter Towers book two

Roan is looking for a way out...

As a mink shifter omega, I never thought I’d escape the soul-crushing gang-ruled world I lived in. But one night on my way home from working at the strip club, the opportunity arose. I just needed to find a place to hide, somewhere I could go where no one from this life would ever find me. Some place I could start over. With my parents deceased, I only had one other person from my past I could ask for help. But would he want to see me again?

Hansol has everything in his life, except his mate…

After two years of running a successful fitness center with celebrities as my personal clients and friends, one would think I had everything I’ve ever wanted. But I don’t. The one thing I still desire is to have my mate by my side. Something my sun bear keeps reminding me of every day. Sure, I’ve had plenty of omegas and other alphas in my bed, but no one I want to wake up with each morning. That person left my life years ago with no explanation and no goodbye.

Will they find their way back to each other?

Then he shows up on my doorstep, soaking wet, and with no belongings. Of course, I take him in. But I don’t know how long I have until he leaves again. Can I trust him this time? Can I finally claim him as my mate? Or am I holding onto false hope? Because I know there is something he is keeping from me.

Coming Soon!

  1. As a former dancer (non-professional and keeping the clothes on kind!) I understand not looking at the audience. Especially drunk, horny wolf shifters.

    1. Thank you, Ed! They weren't lovers before. Just good friends, but that didn't mean there wasn't some tension between them.

  8. Congratulations on the new contract, Jessica! This snippet is packed full of details that put us right in the character's head. I know better than to look at the audience--terrifying whether wolf shifters or normal humans.
