Today I would like to welcome to the blog author Annie Nicholas. Annie is currently on tour promoting the release of her newest book in her Vanguard series, Omegas in Love. Annie has stopped by today to share with us who she would cast in the roles of her Vanguard heroes and heroines but first lets get to know Annie a bit.
Annie Nicholas hibernates in the rural, green mountains of Vermont, where she dreams of different worlds, heroes, and heroines. When spring arrives the stories pour from her, in hopes to share them with the masses one day.
Mother, daughter, wife are some of the hats she happily wears while trudging after her cubs through the hills and dales. The four seasons an inspiration and muse.

A looooong time ago on a North bound trip to Canada far, far away my mind began to wander as I drove back to my home town to visit family. I’d grown up on the nerdy side. It doesn’t bother me to admit this. I have embraced my inner geek.
I’d been thinking about werewolves and how they are depicted as alphas in all the books I’d read. Don’t get me wrong. I’m all about the alphas too, but, where would I fit in if I was a shifter? This idea intrigued me. They can’t all be beating their chests and tossing women over their shoulders. There has to be a variant, just like in humans. How would a weak human male deal with suddenly being turned into a hot shifter?
Hence, this was how my small pack of omegas were born. I started with one story and it grew into a series. Each novella is about a different member of the pack and how they overcome their individual issues with poor self-esteem.
Casting of the Vanguards heros and heroines:
Book one, The Omegas, stars Daedalus and Sugar, they resemble Vin Diesel and Marilyn Monroe.
Book two, The Alpha, stars Eric and Spice, they could be played by Jake Gyllenhall and Marilyn Monroe. (Sugar and Spice are identical twins. LOL)
Book three, The Beta, stars Robert and Esther, they look like a young George Clooney and a young Sandra Bullock.
Book four, Omegas in Love, stars Tyler and Katrina, who could be Mat Damon with red, curly hair and Lucy Liu.
I love to write about both vampires and werewolves, which is why you will find a mix of creatures in all my books. Writing about the relationships between different species is very exciting and most of my future endeavors will contain a variety of monsters.
Thank you for hosting me at your blog.
Born in China of a pure shifter bloodline, Katrina was raised with only one purpose--to breed. Abused by her alpha, she runs away to America as soon as she can. With a new pack and her true mate, she thinks the nightmare is behind her, but when she is abducted on the streets of Chinatown, Katrina must face her past and fight for her freedom.
It took Tyler a year to earn Katrina's love, another to build her confidence and pride, and only a moment to lose her. Broken-hearted, Tyler won't give up his search for Katrina. But he never trained as a warrior like the other shifters. What chance does a real estate agent have in the fight for his mate?
WARNING: Explicit shifter sex, heartbroken torment, and an unstoppable shifter in love.

An antique red archway covered the entrance to the tourist trap to keep evil spirits away and good luck in. Sticking his hand in his jacket pocket, he rubbed the small, velvet jewelry box he’d placed there earlier today.
He could use all the luck he could get—just because Katrina was his mate, didn’t mean she’d agree to get married.
Raised in an all-wolf-shifter community in rural Mongolia, she didn’t think like American shifters. Like him. He took a deep, shaky breath. Marriage was a foreign ritual to her.
He’d chosen this location not just for his superstitions, but for its significance. Katrina worked in the area, a place where the old Asian world met the new, as an interpreter for some of the local companies.
She waited under the arch, facing him, her delicate eyebrows furrowed. An Asian man he didn’t recognize spoke with her.
Facing the stranger’s back, Tyler could only see his short black hair and long fall trench coat.
A sharp stab of jealousy drove him to quicken his pace. He couldn’t help it. As a shifter, possession was nine-tenths of the law, and Katrina belonged to him.
Passing half a dozen souvenir shops offering cheap trinkets, Tyler trotted along Wentworth Avenue. Katrina’s raised voice reached his ears, but he couldn’t understand Mandarin. He growled low in his chest. His mate didn’t yell often.
Three other men broke from the crowd and surrounded the arguing couple.
Tyler’s heart rate took off like a locomotive on a downhill slide. He smelled shifters. Non-Vasi shifters on their territory. Surrounding his mate.
