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.

When they faced an incoming invading force, the Myvik turned to the Kek—mercenaries who travelled the stars and fought your enemy... for a price. The arrival date was ten days after the invaders were due to arrive, so they needed to buy themselves time.
Thirty years earlier, the Myvik had hired the Kek, and the defenders had left something behind. Children.
Haru-vel was named for the father she had never met, and her mother was the planet’s greatest biologist, and she made sure that her daughter was trained and ready to defend her world, along with nineteen others who were treated to a genetic cocktail of unknown origin, except it wasn’t. Her mother knew very well where the material had come from. It had been left after a memorable night thirty years earlier.

Ylara was being cornered by three alphas who didn’t mind sharing, and that was not something she was interested in. With three ladies gathered to distract the guys, they split off to deal with their individual alpha. Shaking them off was another matter.

Zera has grown up on a world where actives develop superpowers and are less than fifteen percent of the population. It is expected that actives serve society but some of them have other ideas.
Zera is a master of weapons design, but her active nature is that of a hopper. She can literally jump into someone else’s body and hide inside. Her sister, Susara, is suit bait. She projects vulnerability which attracts the right and wrong type of interest.
When Susara’s soul is shattered and she is left to die, Zera sets a series of actions in motion that involve a superhero escort service, patrons who pay extensively for the pleasure of a superhuman partner, and clients with very specific needs.
The Blind Date Corporation arranges dates between patrons and the escorts while the escorts wear a mask that covers their eyes and blurs the memories of the patrons so that no stalker issues arise. The company is flourishing until one of the original patrons from the days before the masks outs Zera as an escort and the entire plan of revenge for Susa’s death ramps up a notch. Super.
Vallu spent over five years as an escort with the Blind Date Corporation. On her last date, she used her activation to provide her with something she needed... a child. She just didn’t tell him. How likely was it that he would run into her in the real world? He was from an island in the bay; she was from a suburb. If she hadn’t stopped downtown for a hotdog, nothing would have happened.
Etgar has been searching for Five for four months, and while the management of BDC has been no help, he holds out hope that she will be in his arms again... off contract. When he catches her scent near a hotdog vendor, he follows the scent to the source. She denies her identity as Five, but her scent doesn’t lie. The bright green eyes are a surprise, as is getting shot in the back by a drive-by assassin.
Vallu heals him in the vehicle as his bodyguards recover him, and he refuses to leave without her. She focuses on stopping the bleeding and repairing him as the men drive them to safety. Well, safety for Etgar. The island he lives on is his family home, and they own it all. She has just been dropped into his own little kingdom, but she has some conditions to remain with him. It isn’t like she has had four months to plan or anything.
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?
Ejected from her home, Nyna is forced to run across the city to her grandmother’s house. If she had known it was the night of her first heat, she might have jumped into the sewers instead of trying to outrun the huntsmen of the Overlord of Y’tel.
Trapped in a colony city, she runs as fast as she can wearing her red cloak. The canine heads of the Lyron hunters focus on her, but they are waiting for the bell that lets them hunt. She hates that damned bell.
Sornoth sees the flicker of red, catches her scent, and waits impatiently, quickly beating the fellow huntsmen who would have pursued her before he chases after her himself.
When he catches her, the taste of her burns itself into his brain, and after he marks her, he sends her on to her destination.
It will be two and a half years before they meet again, and when he meets his son for the first time, things change.
Jess has been a faithful ward of the minotaur herd until the day she is out of her mind with heat, and her dream man walks up to her door and brings her flowers. She grabs him, throws him to the floor, and has her way with him until he calls a halt and tells her he’s only willing to go all the way if he can show her the rest of him. Intriguing. Things get complicated, but she gets to home base with her centaur and is interrupted again by friends and family.
Time passes, and they reunite under stressful circumstances but eventually agree on a union, another partner, and a future.
Stihl has been pretending that everything will be fine, but with no job prospects, she is drifting from couch to couch until an urgent request from the book club puts her back in action as a chef. The wedding leads to her meeting up with her one-night stand, and he still is waiting for an omega.
She has no choice but to run home, beg for help, and submit to her grandmother’s plans for her. It is the last thing she wants, but the only thing she can think of to save herself and her children. If their father doesn’t want them, she will find a path of her own, back through high society with an arranged marriage, just like her grandmother wanted.
Nora was an excellent administrative assistant until the day a business associate of her boss made an aggressive pass. She tells her boss, and he tells her to thicken her skin, having heard the other male’s version of the event. She can toughen up or quit. She chooses the option that will stop the pain of the dismissal.
Sabin is shocked when he finds out she is leaving, and he’s devastated when he learns that it is her last day. He had enjoyed having her next to him, breathing in her scent all day every day and spent many hours trying to find a way around the whole employee-employer thing, but now, it was solved for him. A frantic kiss tells him what she tastes like at long last, and now, he has to find a way to get her back to his side.
Nora ends up in a situation where she smells like a hot omega and is at a party full of alphas. Sabin is there and offers his help for the bargain price of one night.
That night spins into events that will echo through their lives, and defying families, a curse, and stalkers, they make their way to a family future.
Khytten Danforth has spent her adult life getting by. She spends her days at work and her spare time volunteering at the hospital as a wetnurse. It sounds generous, but since her lactating talent activated after puberty, she’s been stuck with the effects.
Joining the Blind Date Corporation led her to her patron whose need for her is a matter of biochemistry and driven by desire.
After a strange week of kidnapping and torture, the disasters have come to a halt, and she is able to start thinking of what happens next, but Salat has been doing his own thinking, and he wants her nearby and safe at all times. It is a fun wish, but she attracts danger like he attracts admirers and her time with the Demon Cat of Aksalla tells her that she wants more from life than just subsisting. She actually wants to live.
Salat knew that he wanted to keep his kitten near him, but how to manage that feat eluded him until he saw her in action destroying the nest of henchmen. She had all the makings of a superhero or an amazing villain. It was a good thing that he knew how to straddle the divide.
