I think in some form or fashion, ALL women have the capacity bad-asses. We get up every day and show up, looking that fickle witch called Life straight in the eyes, unblinking. We wear our hearts on our sleeves, even after it’s been shattered time and time again. But that doesn’t stop us – we love and nurture and wear everyone else’s hurts and sorrows upon our own souls like a cloak.
We’re fiercely loyal, to a fault, not caring about the toll on ourselves. We’ll give and give every part of ourselves, often pouring from an empty cup. And we won’t stop. Ever. No matter what.
We relinquish control over our own bodies for nine months to an alien invader, then enjoy the feeling of a tiny T-rex rip outwards to freedom. A few hours later, we’d do it all again. Why? Because we are tough, we are brave, we are resilient. We’re all bad-asses, don’t you see?
USA Today bestselling author Alex Owens lives in coastal Virginia with her family, a cranky horse, seven cats and a bull-headed chocolate Lab. She exists solely on caffeine, books and cuss words– but not always in that order. Find out more at authoralexowens.com.

When I was eleven, I killed my nanny with one blast of magic to the chest. I’d been trying to save her, not that it matters. She’s still dead and I still did it.
That guilt drives me to eliminate wicked wizards, track werewolves through snowstorms (while freezing my coconuts off) and stomping through graveyards, blessed sword in one hand and a fifth of Fireball in the other, doing my own version of zombie whack-a-mole. It’s why I’ll hunt the monsters and why they’ll fear the hell out of me, because I’ve got nothing to lose and everything to atone for.
But a girl’s got to start somewhere and my first job isn’t exactly off to a blazing start. I’ve already lost the thing I was sent to retrieve, there’s a nerdy-hot guy who’s all up in my business, and my fanged employer is threatening to call my vampire Mother if I don’t get my act together and finish the job. Atonement sucks harder than my Mom.
