About Viola Grace
Viola Grace (aka Zenina Masters) is a Canadian sci-fi/paranormal romance writer with ambitions to keep writing for the rest of her life. She specializes in short stories because the thrill of discovery, of all those firsts, is what keeps her writing.
An artist who enjoys a story that catches you up, whirls you around and sets you down with a smile on your face is all she endeavours to be. She prefers to leave the drama to those who are better suited to it, she always goes for the cheap laugh.
Listening to readers has gotten her this far, and with her 300th short story behind her and 400th looming before the end of 2017, she will continue to listen in the future.

Azzul won the manor house and all contents in a card game and dispatched drones to bring it to him. It was not supposed to be occupied. The living being in the house should be dead.

Born to blossom into an omega, something in Olivia’s life went wrong. Instead of having her heats and looking for her own alphas, she is defective. Her body gives her pain and she wants nothing to do with the thought of a sexual liaison with anyone.
Her sister follows her father’s footsteps and keeps her on their property and running the bed and breakfast which is a boring existence for Olivia until her heat is due and her rule against taking reservations during that time is broken by her greedy sibling. There is an emergency and they are going to be hosting a guest.
No one said the guest would be an alpha.
What follows is a meeting, a realization and a rescue that changes not only Olivia’s life, but that of her pride as well.
Argus is just going to a family wedding rehearsal when he begins hearing the phrase defective omega. He has researched a lot of omegas and there is no such thing as a defective one. When he realizes that these words are describing the dainty little woman who helped his panthers get settled, he has a quick discussion with his pridemates and they head off to rescue the omega in question. With any luck, she will choose them. If not, they will have to charm her. Either way, Olivia is theirs.
Lexa’s debut as an omega was traumatic and left her scarred. She has spent the five years since fighting to keep her adopted daughter and keep her sanity.
At the limit of her resources, there is a knock on her door and the love of her life from five years earlier is standing there and he finally asks her what happened after he left her. Her answers shake him and he leaves. There is a certain amount of peace to seeing him again and she gets on with her life.
Two weeks later, he returns with an offer of protection and safety with two other alphas of his ursa type who have agreed to form a unit for her benefit. Lexa thinks about the safety of her daughter and she agrees to meet the first of her prospective mates. His identity shocks her and his clever tongue makes her head spin.
The next prospect is terrifying, adorable, and enthusiastic. She gets lost in his arms and she agrees to his protection. Her original mate from years ago is willing to stand aside and act as guardian, but it doesn’t feel right to ignore him. Their connection feels like it was never broken and her heart aches for him.
Can she really start anew with the man from her past and two charming strangers?
Olivia has been rescued from years of torture and is working to settle into a life with her mates, and the omega next door, and another feline alpha who wants to join their group. She is gaining confidence, friends, and now there is one thing to do…go on dates with her mates. Oh, and she had to finish a very important memoir.
Putting her pain on the page is difficult, but the reaction is beyond what she could imagine. A bidding war for her memoir spurs legal action and before long she finds herself in court. Does she have the right to tell her story with all the documentation that the Omega Centre found, or does her sleepy home town get to remain oblivious to their part in the most heinous act of aggression on an omega in the last two decades. Is honesty the best policy or should she forget about the pain?
Life continues and she finds that getting surprised by another heat is uncomfortable while she is having dinner with the in-laws and her mates can’t get her home. She is really glad that Ford has been helping her make friends because she really needs one now.
Jennel is looking to settle down, and Redbird City is the place for it. She and her nephew, Corit, are looking for a place they can be safe from hostile orc clans and a decades-old vision.
She registers as an elemental with the local mayor’s office, and they connect her with the orc clan speaker. She can apply to him to gain protection for her nephew and, hopefully, entry into a clan.
Once she’s registered, she returns to her new house to meet the movers, and a parade of orcs moves stuff from the van to the house when she meets her new neighbour.
Day-ek just got off a shift and noticed the fae woman sitting on the deck and a set of three orcs moving furniture into the house. He comes over to introduce himself, and he takes in her curves and the very frank assessment she gives him and offers to give her a hand.
Jennel introduces Day-ek to Corit, and when her mention of having to meet the speaker inspires a grin, she gets a funny feeling about her neighbour.
When she meets the speaker and he gives her that cheeky grin while he demands a night with him for each of the three clans he speaks for, she knows that Corit is safe, and she’s got a date. And then... things get complicated.
After a planet-killing asteroid, humanity has to huddle under shelters and live in the dimmest of places. A year of brutal survival and the breakdown of society leave Hannah less than hopeful of her prospects in the new world.
A message in the darkness offers a lifeline to those who wish to leave Earth to be bonded servants to alien masters. For most, the price of their bond will be labour, but for Hannah, it turns into something else.
With a stunningly high sensuality rating, she is a prime sexual bondservant and the bidding for her services ends with an amount that breaks records.
Her patron is a male with wings who belongs to a species that does more than need sex; they consume it.
Mero only needs to look at her, and he is hungrier than he has ever been.
“Hannah, you are being rehoused.”
Hannah looked at him, but he was motioning to one of the guards. She was hauled away before she had the chance to see if any of the other women were being treated the same way.
The guard had a grip on her left wrist, and she walked Hanna away from the training centre toward the centre of the station. The light slippers that went with the smock let her record every sensation under her feet and the change in the rough decking to the smoother metalwork of the guest area.
Asking where they were going wasn’t going to do any good, so she absorbed the details of where the guard was taking her.
The arrivals’ hall was on her left, and it had a large number of beings milling around in it. A few looked at her with curiosity, but she quickly lowered her gaze. Don’t stare was one of the primary lessons.
She was so busy not staring that she didn’t notice when a shadow crossed in front of her. The guard noticed. She jerked to a halt.
Hannah looked down at large, booted feet that led up to snug black trousers and a floor-length, open vest hung from his shoulders.
She didn’t look at his face. His collarbone was as far up as she was able to see comfortably.
“What are you leading, guardswoman?” The low rumble was in Heniahk.
“A bondservant is being sent for grooming, sir.”
“She is for the purchasing fare tomorrow?”
Hannah held still as he circled her before coming to a halt in front of her.
“Is she in heat?”
“No, sir. She just completed her sensuality assessment.”
She could hear him breathing deeply.
“What was her score?”
“That is for the sellers to disclose, sir.”
The dark chuckle ran through the open area, and several of the closest folk must have taken one look at what was detaining them and scuttled away. She could see their feet walking, pausing and then moving quickly away.
The skin of his belly was blue, and there were a few markings peeping from the richly embroidered vest. Whatever he was, he was scaring the hell out of her guard. The hand on her wrist was icy.
“You are dismissed, guardswoman. And you, miss, I will see you tomorrow.”
She nodded. “Yes, sir.”
He chuckled and turned, his vest swirling wide. That is when she noticed what appeared to be the lower portion of huge wings.
Hmrain. How had the instructor known that there would be one at the bond auction?
Trapped in her body, she is given a chance at a new life as a caretaker, but guarding horny superheroes loses its appeal quickly.
Beatrix’s world has been shrinking as her body slowly locks up into immobility and constant pain. A strange woman arrives at her door and offers her a chance for a body without pain and the form she had in her early twenties. The price of this miracle? Just her life and moving to an alien world as caretaker for a group of superheroes.
The charm of the men wore thin fast, and she put her foot down after she overheard some hurtful remarks. She activated her one caveat from the contract, her right of refusal. Bea quit.
She ends up with the avatar, pregnant, friendless, and alone on a world where everyone but her has scales and a forked tongue. The one refrain in her mind is simple... she should have read the contract.
Resetting a life twice is hard enough, but doing it as the only one of her kind on an entire world is definitely trickier than she had imagined. At least she could dance now.
