ALPHA’S MATE
Book One of the Siberian Volkov Pack Romance Series

I have always loved this book and now after three years of writing and releasing eleven books since this one was published, I thought it was time to go back and bring Dmitry and Violet up to the standards of writing that I am capable of today. I also wanted to release this book in paperback and thought it needed some expansion to make the cost worthwhile for me as the author, as well as for you the reader. So here it is, with more sex scenes, more descriptions and more love.
I have also included two non-fiction articles. “Why Siberia?” and “Love at First Sight, Believe in the Possibility”. These explain why I set my world of Lycans up the way I did, as well as why I believe in “Love at First Sight” which I gave to my characters through the mating bond.
I hope you will love the changes I’ve made, including this new cover designed by Hot Damn Designs with some added parts by me, mainly the wolf and wording.

Love at First Sight – Believe in the Possibility

Book heart

Love at First Sight – Believe in the possibility

Caryn Moya Block

 

I’ve written about my personal experiences of “Love at First Sight” in previous articles, but as I prepare to release the Special Anniversary Extended Edition of Alpha’s Mate, I wanted to visit the topic again. Some people think love at first sight is a ridiculous fairy tale. So, I wanted to find some statistics and dive a little deeper to find the truth.

According to statisticbrain.com, 71% of Americans believe in love at first sight and on postyour.info/statistics, 34 % of people who responded believed. Wow, that is a huge number of people, but that is just those who believe in love at first sight. These statistic do not address if there really is such a thing.

Dr. Earl Naumann, author of Love at First Sight, interviewed and surveyed 1,500 individuals of all races, religions, and backgrounds all across America, and concluded that love at first sight is not a rare experience. What’s more, Dr. Naumann theorizes that if you believe in love at first sight, there’s roughly a 60 % chance it will happen to you. Here’s what led him to that conclusion:

  • Nearly two thirds of the population believes in love at first sight.
  • Of the believers, more than half have experienced it.
  • 55 % of those who experienced it married the object of their affection.
  • Three quarters of these married couples stayed married.

 

Okay, now we’re talking numbers. What about science?

According to an article on pychologytoday.com, after changing the wording to “love at first acquaintance”, Elliot D. Cohen, Ph.D concluded that yes, love at first sight does exist and there was no reason to suppose otherwise.

Then I found an article about the really interesting scientific study that published in the Nov. 7 issue of the Journal of Neuroscience. Jeffrey Cooper, a psychology researcher who conducted the study while he was a postdoctoral student at Trinity College was able to map the specific areas in the brain that were involved in our love at first sight decision processes.

In the first few milliseconds of seeing a new face, we’re evaluating physical attractiveness using one specific region of the medial prefrontal cortex, called the paracingulate cortex. But the rostromedial prefrontal cortex goes a bit deeper, very quickly asking, “Yeah, but are they compatible with me?”

“These really are separate processes,” Cooper said. “But they really are both happening in your head as you make those initial evaluations.”

It seems that the truth of “love at first sight” is that our brains are wired to make that evaluation in milliseconds and believing it’s possible is the beginning. So, I invite you to believe in love at first sight, it might happen to you or someone you know.

     He stopped, puzzled, and turned around. A bundle of warm woman, hit him squarely in the chest, and he fell backwards onto the bed. Brenda landed on top of him.

     She leaned down and licked his ear. “I think it’s my turn to make you crazy.”

    “Baby, I’m already crazy for you,” Granger said, smiling. He reached for the tie around her waist and then pushed the robe from her shoulders.

  “Do you feel the need to try on mates? Do you want to be human again? I’m sorry, Brenda. I don’t understand how you can turn away from a priceless gift. Granger is a good man, why don’t you want him?”

“He drives me crazy! Granger is gorgeous, and successful, and rich. He’s always helping people. He even helped me, a complete stranger through the change into a lycan. The pain was excruciating, but he was linked to me the whole time. Then he loves me, it doesn’t matter what I do, or what I say. He doesn’t criticize me or chastise me. How can such a perfect person love me? How can I measure up to someone so perfect?”

  “…I am going to kill her with kindness. Every time she turns around, I will arrange something nice for her. I just won’t be there to gloat or take credit.” (Granger said)

“Well, at least you have a plan. I don’t know if you’ll succeed or fail miserably, but you have a plan.” Jared rubbed at his chin thoughtfully.
