Character Interview: Blind Beast Mate - Milana Jacks - The Alpha Beast.
Hello! Thank you for having me on your blog. The following interview with the Alpha Beast was conducted before I wrote the Blind Beast Mate.
The Alpha Beasts sits across my desk and taps his foot, clearly impatient and ready to get going. I clear my throat and press the record button on my phone. “Alpha Beast, welcome. I’ll get started with questions. What would make you happy?”
“Right this minute?” he counters. “I want some tchai.”
Tchai is a drink made from a plant from his planet, and I don’t have any at my office. “I meant in life. What would make you feel like you are the happiest male on Earth?
The Beast rolls his shoulders. “I wanna settle down with my pair. Find a woman for me. She’d make me happy.”
“I hear your people buy pairs from the communities.”
“Your hearing is great.”
“Thank you,” I say. “Buying women is wrong.”
“You’ll get used to it.”
Unlikely, so I press on. “I mean, there are beast females and willing women all over your City, so I don’t understand why—”
The color of his eyes brightens, and I clamp my mouth shut, resolving to change the questions. “What happens after you find a suitable pair?” Cramped in a room with a Beast rumored to eat his bedmates isn’t exactly cozy. I try not to sound intimidated.
He smirks, probably sensing my growing discomfort. “Start a family. Make beast babies. That’s my purpose in life, everything else is secondary.”
I like babies. We could talk family. “I have three kids. How many beast babies do you want?”
“At least six.”
My eyes grow wide.
“What?” he says. “Not enough?”
“It’s plenty.” You’ll change your mind after one or two. “Anyway, why six?
“I like to get even.”
“So I hear. What’s your idea of a perfect pair? When you think about your pair, what does she look like?”
“I’m not too picky as long as she’s a feisty little thing I have to discipline.”
Okaaaaay. “What if you get a sweet pair who doesn’t need discipline?”
“Sweet. Not sure I follow. How can a woman be sweet? Fruit is sweet.”
“Yes, like fruit.”
“Which fruit cuz you natives can be some sour ass fruits.”
“Ha, ha. A peach.”
The Alpha Beast shows me his big teeth, and I flinch. “I love peaches,” he says. “Grow some in my back yard. When you bite into a peach, the juice flows in your mouth. Mmmm.” He licks his sharp teeth. “You a peach, little girl?”
“Um what? Mind?”
“No. What? Um…let’s move onto the last question. What’s the one thing you hate?
“Lies. I don’t like when people lie to me, that’s why I get even. Are we done yet? Got shit to do, people to see.”
“Sure. Where are you going?
“Got a community to check out. Maybe I’ll get lucky. Wish me luck.”
“Thanks. I’ll remember the sweet fruit. My pair gonna be peaches and fucking cream.”

About the Book:
When life deals a wild card, play it no matter the cost.
Since the day Rey’s defiance earned her a blinding blow to the head, fear has hovered as close as the guide dog that clings to her side. But the terror that grips her now is almost beyond description.
Like her sister before her, Rey has been sold to satisfy the lusts of one of the alien Beasts that now rule the Earth. If the towering, leather-clad Alpha discovers his prize can’t see, he could kill her with a flick of his claw. Or worse, send her home—where the only mercy she’ll get is a bullet.
From the moment the Alpha Beast spotted Rey smiling tenderly at her flowers, his desire to own her, body and soul, roared louder than his bike’s throaty engine. But the only smiles his new pair aims his way are forced—and oddly off target. She is liquid heat in his arms, yet ignores the notes and gifts he leaves for her.
If he can’t win her over, he can’t trust her with his own truth. And the combined weight of their secrets could destroy everything.

Read an Excerpt:
The Alpha Beast grunted. A large hand framed one side of my face, and his mouth slammed down on mine, his tongue demanding entrance. Whistling and hooting followed his assault—he considered it a kiss, I was sure. His hand wound around my hair, and I could do nothing but let him invade. I pretended it was a romantic wedding kiss, a press of lips, subtle and gentle for the sake of an audience, but the Alpha clearly didn’t know what gentle meant. My back nearly snapped when he leaned forward and I leaned back. He deepened the kiss. For a second, I thought, he might swallow me whole. When his tongue swirled with mine and a low growl rumbled in the back of his throat, I stopped thinking altogether.
The Alpha Beast tasted fresh, a hint of mint and lemon on his expert tongue, not a trace of stale beer or someone else’s night-before lipstick. Growing up with a community whore had thought me to appreciate the small things and rejoice in those small things even at the most terrifying moments. I didn’t know what would happen to me with this man, but at least he didn’t taste bad on my sensitive palate.
After a minute, his kissing slowed and his tongue stopped moving. Not knowing what else to do, I stroked it with mine. With the tip of my tongue, I flicked his. The Alpha Beast groaned into my mouth and pressed me closer. He was so hard, I thought he might burst out of his pants and take me right over his bike. He could do what he wanted with me. I was his pair.
His lips left mine. My mouth still gaped, and my lips tingled from rubbing on his stubble. I’d never been taken like this before. The Alpha Beast chuckled, probably at my gaping mouth, and his rough, two-day-unshaven cheek brushed my soft one as his sharp teeth nibbled my ear. He whispered, “Your uncle swore to me you are a virgin. Swore up and down nobody’s spoiled you, and charged me an arm and a leg for your virginal pussy. Let’s be clear in case you aren’t. Tell me now so I don’t gotta drive back to collect his arm and a leg.”
I wasn’t a virgin, but I’d protected myself from abuse. In fact, I was so good at protecting myself that I traded rape trauma for a life of blindness. A trade no woman should have to make. I swiped away those memories and focused on the now.
The silence in the yard never sounded louder. I estimated that between his beasts and the community’s humans, about three hundred people watched and listened. Even Dark had stopped barking. “Can we talk about this later?” I whispered.
“No. Answer me.”
My body was still bent back, and he appeared a dark mass against the lit sky. I gripped the back of his head and tried to pull him down so I could whisper in his ear. I tugged, but he didn’t budge. Okay, then. “Maybe,” I said.
“Twenty says there be bloody sheets!” someone shouted.
I would’ve liked to keep our business private.
The Alpha Beast straightened, and three hard thumps sounded. He might’ve thumped his chest, but I wasn’t sure. It sounded suspiciously like something a gorilla did. He picked me up and plopped my ass on the back of his bike. The way he manhandled me suited me fine. He could move me from one place to the next all he wanted. Next, he removed my sunglasses and paused.
