TAKEN BY THE ALPHA KING debut week! Everything you need to know!

Posted in Uncategorized

How excited am I about the fact that my latest project, Taken by the Alpha King, debuts on the Radish fiction app THIS FRIDAY?!


The thing is, this has been kept under my hat, air-tight, no details, don’t give stuff away, Jenny, for so long now that I feel like I’m just gonna blorf out every single plot detail in my excitement. So, I’ve put together a primer. A “what you need to know about Taken by the Alpha King.

A cloudy gray sky and a full moon with a wolf howling in front of it. A blonde woman in a crown stands behind a dark-haired, shirtless man. The text reads: She will kneel before her king. Taken by the Alpha King, Abigail Barnette. On Radish exclusively April 29

What is Taken by the Alpha King?

So glad you asked. Taken by the Alpha King is a new series on the Radish Fiction app. It’s a high-heat Urban Fantasy/PNR with some tropes that are a little bit different than you’ve seen in my Abigail Barnette work.

What’s it about?

The story is told from the POV of Bailey Dixon, a werewolf who’s just returned to her pack after five years of living in the human world. She invoked an obscure pack law to delay her official transition into werewolf life and now she’s back to make that final decision, which also involves accepting an arranged marriage.

But while she was away, the formerly stable pack plunged into political turmoil that ended with their king in exile and a new king on the throne, the ruthless and power-hungry Nathan Frost. When he sets his sights on Bailey, he’ll stop at nothing to have her, even if it tears the pack apart.

Now, slather that with some Norse, Greek, and Roman lore, millennia-old ceremonies and laws, court intrigue, gruesome executions, hot sex, and a heroine who surprises herself with her ability to navigate tricky situations.

What kind of reader is going to like this?

Current readers of the monster romance genre, werewolf fans looking for a different spin on the creature and legends, and anyone who longs for the early 2000’s Urban Fantasy boom.

Gimme some tropes. I like things specific.

Werewolves, fated mates (sorta), enemies-to-lovers, alpha hero, breeding, and some light BDSM scenes.

What about content warnings?

Gore, cheating, and some readers might be uncomfortable with the slight cult vibe of the pack.

Can we read this on any other platforms?

Nope, this one is a Radish exclusive and I’m so psyched at their commitment to putting my vision for this world out there! So, download the app and hit those chapters Friday! And be sure to check out the sneak peek going on!

    Will the future books have pregnancy ? This sounds really good but I’m 1000% not into reading breeding that ends with actual pregnancy.

      I did, and it’s so good! Definitely not a classic AB romance — the hero is kinda the worst; at least where I am in the story — but the story and characters (and sex, duh) are incredible. I’m not sure anything can top the Sophie series in terms of emotional heft and drama, but I think this might be Jenny’s best writing ever. I know Abigail is going to be retired, but I definitely wouldn’t say no to more of this series! I definitely didn’t expect the “taken” part of the title to be so literal. 🙂

      The only warnings to share about radish: after the first 10 or so chapters, you have to either wait an hour or pay to access the rest. You can read the whole thing without paying, near as I can tell…though I just bought access because I had to know how what happens. But just know that going in, definitely. Also there are comments….not great comments, a lot of the time. (But then again I feel like a crazy stalker fan who’s been bothering Jenny for years, especially in this comment, so I might just be defensive of one of my favorite authors.)

    Will “Taken By The Alpha King” be available on any other novel apps than Raddish? Will it also be available on audible novel apps such a Pocket FM?

      I think Radish is starting to do audio stuff, though. Maybe they’ll start hiring people to do readings?
