More About the Author

Hi. I'm Francesca Hawley and I'm a fat chick. A woman with dangerous curves just like my heroines.

Many people don't like the word, "fat" but I do because it's the truth and I've learned to own it. I am a fat chick and I always will be. Even if my fairy godmother popped in right at this moment and waved her wand to make me a size 2, I know that mentally and emotionally I'd still be a fat chick. So why is this relevant? Well, my size has had a major influence on how I see the world and how I write.

I first began to read romance when I was in my teens. I loved the genre, but the heroines were all thin. Their thighs didn't rub together...had never rubbed together...and frankly I had trouble relating to these ladies. The stories were great--full of emotion and well told, but the heroines weren't like me and that was a major disappointment. I kept wondering where were the fat heroines? I found some occasionally, but to have their Happily Ever After they usually had to lose weight and go from ugly duckling to swan.

Well, I wanted a fat heroine who loved herself--or at least learned to love herself--and a hot alpha hero who liked her jiggly bits just the way they were. Since I didn't find many big girls to read about, I decided to write about them myself. After all, I loved to write anyway and had been writing almost as long as I'd been reading, so Francesca Hawley - author of Romance with Dangerous Curves was born.

In a Francesca Hawley romance, my readers will find authentic, sensual, fat heroines who love and are loved by their intense, passionate, and seductive Alpha heroes. I hope you enjoy their dangerous curves just as much as their hunky heroes do.

First time I've read anything from this author. Overall, I enjoyed the book, but it could have been better. From the title and the partial pages you can sample from Amazon, you expect more of a challenge between the alpha female and male. That doesn't happen. I hoped for a more fiesty coming-together between the main characters. The female pretty much submitted from the beginning of the short story. Alpha takes a mate might have been a more fitting title.

I thoroughly enjoying the immediate chemistry and wordplay between the male Alpha and the female Alpha. The wordplay rightly so led to foreplay and you know what is next :-). If male dominance make you nervous, shapeshifters make you cringe, and wall-shaking lovin is a NO NO then do not select this story. For everyone else, GET READY TO ENJOY.

Serena is an accomplished, independent alpha in her own right. She shudders at the thought of letting a man dictate to her, which is part of the reason she's surrounded herself with betas and omegas, both in business and in the bedroom. After a scarring experience earlier in her young life, Serena harbors deep insecurities, the likes of which have shaped the woman she is today. She likes control too much to give it up to anyone, but she underestimated the power of a True Mate's need to submit. Especially to a conceited, arrogant Alpha who's intent on owning her.

Damien is Alpha with a capital "A" and he's looking to Mate with one woman forever. In order to narrow down his search he employs a matchmaking agency, never thinking that the company's owner would be his True Mate. Claiming her should be easy enough since she's in heat, but the infuriating vixen is determined to make him work for her submission and admission to what he knew to be true since he laid eyes on her. Damien knows it's a "now or never situation" with Serena's heat condition, but he wants forever and will use any means necessary to get it.

Serena and Damien are the epitome of Alpha characters. Both are shrewd in business, but when it comes to matters of the heart they show their vulnerabilities. Serena is also very insecure about being voluptuous. The push and pull of their relationship is evenly paced throughout the story and makes this quick read that much faster, as the does the intense and arousing sex scenes found throughout. There is a slight scene of public exhibitionism that doesn't go all the way, but it's enough to make you think they just might have if not for an interruption.

My only complaint is with the ending -- I think that needed to be extended.

Take a dating service, and angry werewolf, who happens to be an Alpha and the co-owner of the dating service who is also Alpha and you get combustion.

Serena Goldwolf is part owner of Started this dating service; hoping to provide shape shifters with the help in finding their perfect mate. Serena is not in the market for a mate. She likes her independence and the fact that she is an Alpha and is not going to bow down to any male. That is until...

Damien Blackwolf walks into the offices. Damien is not a happy client of her dating service walks in and things change. He was set up with a stalking psycho bitch.

Causing a scene Damien is yelling in the reception area, hearing the commotion in the outer office Serena walks out to settle the issue when she finds probably one of the hottest males on the planet. As things start to heat up he almost takes her there in the office with a crowd. Not realizing she is in heat, she would have let him.

The chemistry between Damien and Serena is so intense you can feel it coming off the pages. Things heat up so much he takes her upstairs to his law offices to prove to her that she is his mate. Still not wanting to give up her independence, she keeps fighting him. No release in sight she finally gives in and they bind themselves to each other.

Running scared Serena heads for her families compound. She needs to talk to her mother. Where she finds out that thinking her mother was submissive all these years just wasn't the case. Serena finds that she can still be a very strong yet independent woman and have Damien too.

This is a wonderful short story that makes you want more.

Serena Goldwolf runs a successful matchmaking service for shifters. She is an alpha, answerable only to her father, the pack leader. When an irate alpha wolf comes into her office to complain about his match, Serena goes toe to toe with him. Damien Blackwolf is used to getting his way. As an alpha and pack leader, few dare to challenge him and he likes it that way. However, when it comes to picking a Mate, he wants a woman that won't be so easily cowed but is willing to be submissive in the bedroom. Not many people can stand up to him when he is angry, displaying full alpha male tendencies. But when Serena steps right up to him and challenges him, he decides that he wants her.

I enjoyed watching Serena and Damien face off with each other. They are both alphas and as such neither of them are willing to back down. But while Serena doesn't want to submit to a Mate for the long term, she finds herself wanting to submit to Damien in the bedroom (or office, just wherever they are). I wish there was a longer `mating dance' for the couple. Within minutes of meeting Damien is carrying Serena off. Because of this, there is a communication breakdown in what they each want in a relationship which causes Serena to get scared and run.

Overall the conflict was minimal and only took about half a page to clear up but I still enjoyed this novella. It was very hot with a sexy shifter that likes his women to have curves and a woman that doesn't back down and isn't afraid to tell a man what she wants. I have enjoyed the other books by this author that are set in this world. Hawley did set up another book at the end of this one so I am going to be on the lookout for that one.
