Ringing in the New Year with Olivia Black!

I fell in love with romance novels years ago and read everything I could get my hands on, from alternative to ménage and everything in between. Thousands of books later, I'm still an avid reader on the lookout for a good book.

I started writing ménage romance with Siren Publishing under the name, Alicia White. Recently, I decided that I wanted to branch out and with the support of the Siren team, I started writing ManLove under, Olivia Black. Silver Bullet, is my first ManLove series and I’m looking forward to many more in the future.  

I love waking up in the morning, getting my iced coffee and sitting down in front of my laptop. Going on adventures with my characters, makes writing the best job on the planet. My hope is that readers will find something positive in every book I write and that they will enjoy the journey along the way.

Happy reading!

Tiger’s Choice 
Silver Bullet 3

Sam McMillian is a tiger shifter living with a wolf pack. He was kicked out of his own family streak, not only for being gay, but for being a submissive bottom as well. He’s supposed to be a strong, fierce predator. Hiding who he really is from the wolf pack that welcomes him, Sam starts his life over. Not being able to deny what he really wants, Sam sneaks out once a month and meets with Charles Montgomery. The man is not only his Master, but is also Sam’s mate.

Charles is an ancient vampire. He meets his True Match, a vampire’s perfect blood match, at the Silver Bullet. He hides the truth from his friends because Sam asks him too.  After a year of meeting once a month in secret, Charles decides that things need to change. To get Sam’s attention, Charles gives him an ultimatum, pushing the other man over the edge and provoking his tiger to rise.


“It’s almost been a year. When are you going to be honest?” Charles stared at him and Sam felt as if the man could see into his soul.

          “I’m not ready.” Sam told him, shaking his head.

          “You say that every month. You’re the only man I drink from. The only man I fuck. I’m the only man you fuck. I go to that damn club so that my friends don’t get suspicious. All of it is for you,” Charles told him and Sam felt guilty.

          It was all true. The pack doctor was the only other being that knew the complete truth. That they were mates and that Charles could only drink from him since Sam was his True Match. Sam went to see the doctor once a week and the man took a pint of his blood before he personally delivered the blood bag to Charles. Once a month, when Sam came to his home for their sessions, Charles would drink from Sam’s vein – an experience that Sam loved. 

          “I’m sorry. I’m just—I can’t tell them yet.” It was a lame excuse, he knew that. It was his past that he was afraid of.

          “Why? They won’t care,” Charles told him.

          “You don’t know that! I had to leave one home. I’m not ready to leave another.” He respected Gideon too much, just like he’d respected his father.

          “You think your friends will really give a shit that you bottom? Hell, tell them I bottom for you. I don’t care.” Sam could hear the pleading tone in Charles’s voice.

          “Nobody would believe that. Too many people know your reputation.” It was true. The man was a Dom, and he always would be. He’d earned his reputation as a Master long before Sam came into the picture.

          “So, for the rest of my existence, I only get to see my True Match once a month?” The man was getting angry, Sam could see it in the way his jaw clenched and his eyes narrowed.

          “I’m sorry.” It was true. He was sorry.

          “You always say that.” He waved away Sam’s apology.

          “It’s true,” He exhaled loudly. “I should probably go.”

          “Yeah, I’ll see you next month for my feeding and fuck,” Charles said harshly. He already felt so damn guilty and now it was as if Charles was the one feeling used in their sort of relationship.

          “I shouldn’t do this anymore,” he said under his breath as he walked toward the bedroom door.

          “You say that at the end of every night we’re together. I used to be scared that I wouldn’t see you again.” Sam saw a flash of pain in the other man’s eyes.

          “I don’t want to hurt you.”

          “You are, though. Every time you walk out that door my heart breaks. Maybe you need to decide if I’m your mate. You’ve never once tried to claim me. I’ve done everything you’ve asked. For an entire year, I’ve kept our relationship a secret from my friends. When is it going to be about me, Sam? It’s time you made a decision. Either claim me as your mate, or don’t come back.”

          Sam stared silently at Charles in shock, before turning and hurrying down the stairs. Sam grabbed his clothing off the bench in the entryway and peeked over his shoulder. He could see the marks that his Master had left behind, but by morning, all evidence of his night with Charles would be gone as if they’d never been there in the first place.

          He pulled the T-shirt over his head, put on his jeans, and sat down so that he could pull on his shoes. The slight pain that grew when his ass hit the bench felt amazing. Looking up, he came face-to-face with the man that meant the most to him.

          “Did you hear me, Sam? Either claim me, or leave forever. I won’t live like this anymore, having a True Match that is embarrassed to love openly.” Sam could see the sorrow on Charles face as he uttered those words with grim determination.

          Instead of answering Charles, he left, walking straight out the front door and directly to his car. He got in, started the engine, and drove away.


Behind the Scenes

Ø How did you come up with the title?

Tiger’s Choice, is about Sam McMillian, a tiger shifter in denial. He hides who he really is behind secrets. The man can’t come to terms with what he really craves and desires. The animal inside finally takes drastic measures and chooses for them both. You’ll have to read the book to find out what happens.

Ø What are your current projects?

I just finished book 7, Montana’s Man, in the Silver Bullet series and working on book 8, Kevin’s Savior. There is a lot more to come and hopefully a few twists and turns that readers won’t be expecting.

Ø Which actor/actress would you like to see playing the lead character from your most recent book?

These are the two main characters, Charles and Sam in Tiger’s Choice.

Ø How much research do you do?

This series takes place in New Orleans. I went on an amazing road trip over the summer and ended up in this magical city. I did a lot of research and mapped it out. I felt that it was important to list real restaurants, streets, and landmarks.  

Ø Have you written any other novels in collaboration with other writers?

I had the opportunity to write two amazing series with ménage everlasting authors for Siren when writing as Alicia White. I would really love to collaborate in a Man Love series with other M/M authors. Working with other writers is a wonderful experience and I look forward to having the opportunity in the future.

Ø What books are you reading at present?

If I’m not writing, I’m reading. I go through a couple of books a week and my ‘to be read’ list is growing. I have thousands of ebooks on my Nook.

  3. I am so addicted to the Silver Bullet series, that I am about to begin a support group for us addicts! I cannot say how much I love this series. The sex is great, but what really caught and kept me was the love that the characters feel for one another. It's a real, palpable thing. I fall in love with the guys as they do with each other. I'm a widower trying to find love again, and the series is a wonderful inspiration for that goal.
