About A.C. Warneke

Like most writers, I spend most of my time telling myself stories and occasionally writing them down when they get too loud to remain in my head. The characters are also very demanding, wanting to go out into the world to be discovered by millions of adoring readers, though they are most satisfied with having only a few readers that truly love them. From the gargoyles that sit on top of the roofs to the Siren who lures her wolf astray to the Aradians and Apocritae to those who battle evil, the characters are everything.

Instead of going through the traditional gatekeepers of the publishing world I have leapt over the walls with the help of digital catapults (including smashwords) and messenger e-birds (goodreads, facebook, twitter, RNC, etc), going directly to the public. It has been a year and while my strong hold is small it grows larger every day as I connect with other rebels throughout the lands and the readers who support our work. It is a glorious day to be a writer.

When it comes to the actual writing I have discovered that every single one of my books likes to be created in a different way, which makes establishing an environment that is most conducive to my writing is not likely, though it occasionally involves chocolate covered raisins, music, minesweeper, occasionally Mahjong, lots of solitaire, notebooks and scraps of paper, doodling and day dreaming, and fruity, sugar-free bubble gum, not necessarily in that order and not always at the same time.

Of course, none of this would be possible without the love and support of my very loving and very tolerant family: my husband who encourages me to keep writing even when I act a little insane in regards to the worlds in my head, and my three kids who help out so much when I get lost in those same, darn worlds. They politely listen as I go on and on about my characters' motivations and back stories, their connections within the worlds created and how they fight to gain control of their destinies. But I am a cruel writer and make them earn their happy endings.

Since I am also a Romantic at heart, they are all happy endings.

Simply a hot, sexy, excellent read!!

Title: Siren Song
Author: AC Warneke
Format: 288 ebook pgs
Genre: Urban Science Fiction Fantasy Romance
Cover: Nice Cover


Duncan is a wolf, Lexi is the siren and this is the first book I’ve read that included these two creatures. I can’t remember ever reading about a siren, especially one that is not tied to water and I’m usually not into wolves stories. I’m glad I gave this one a try. The story was a nice brake from the world saving heroines novels that I’m usually reading. This was simply a hot, sexy, excellent read.
I loved the way Lexi was confidant and loved the way she displayed it through her dress style. She was sweet and nice and possessed the power some females have that attracted the males; she is a siren after all. Lexi only has two friends…. two male sexy friends that are also her roommates. They help her out of her shy shell in the beginning when she was a bit of a loner.
The story had me smiling and fanning myself through out the story. Lexi was a very good instigator I felt sorry for Duncan, he has so many blue Pelotas (balls). She knew what she wanted and poor Duncan didn’t have a chance. So many hot scenes in different locations (yes locations) that I lost count. They were hot unable to control their actions and then they remembered the rules (dam those rules). It’s can’t be easy to keep your hands off when your boss is so darn HOT!
Sirens Song is a stand alone book for mature audience at least older young adult.

Review by: KAthryn Redman on Oct. 18, 2012 :
Lexi has recently discovered that she is a Siren, a pure siren that only has one true love in her life and if that love is not felt in return she is destined to be alone and heart broken.

Lexi decides that Duncan is the one man she wants with ever fiber of her being but alas he is forever trying to deny their passion to protect her from his "animal side" (nudge nudge wonder what he is)

The chemistry and sexual tension is explosive in this book and I cannot help but love Lexi with her quirky personality and the fact that she loves to dress up and go against the norm.

When all the bickering and desperate sexual tension reaches a high, it is up to Duncan to decide to let her into his secret and heart and for Lexi to come to terms with her siren abilities.

This book has so many spelling and grammatical errors but frankly I did not care as I loved the storyline so much that I could easily overlook everyone of them. The main and sub characters are all fun with unique personalities and oodles of charm

I received this book at a R2R so thank you A.C. I really enjoyed this book, it was a paranormal romance that did not involve saving the world or any world changing events, but it was a sexy, hot romance with a paranormal twist.

I loved Lexi and how she pushed Duncan on a regular basis. She was so outspoken and blunt it was hilarious. We find out during the book that she was not always that way and only with the help of her two best friends and many outfits was she able to come out of her shell. Duncan is uptight except with Lexi and he isn't comfortable with his wild side.

It seems that a lot of romance books use a love triangle (which I hate). This one did not the main characters were enough problems unto themselves. Lexi is just now finding out that she is a siren and what that means and I liked the siren explanations and implications. Duncan is a wolf but he is not bonded with his wolf and is fighting to keep control all the time. His internal struggles made him a more likable character. The relationship questions that arise from these two can be applied to every day people because the paranormal problems that they are dealing with are more like personality traits.

I liked all the side characters and enjoyed the fact that one of the roommates found a mate before Lexi..just because his chosen mate wasn't as stubborn as Duncan.

Thank you again A.C. for a hot sexy enjoyable read that went way to fast! This tasty treat made me want to go and read more from A.C.

I LOVED this book! Duncan and Lexi were fantastic! I truly enjoyed the sexual tension in the book; it gripped me in the first chapter, and kept going, all throughout the book. Excellent storyline!

Initially, I thought the book would have a more mythological, paranormal feel to it, since Duncan is a wolf, and Lexi (Alexandra) is a Siren. One usually doesn't find that type of a match-up in books, but the author made this one work. The book is set in a modern-day setting, similar to 50 Shades or Bared to You. And, like those books, Duncan is a millionaire businessman, set on getting the woman of his dreams, but is so afraid of letting his wolf hurt her.

Lexi works at his magazine enterprise as a writer, and the immediate attraction they both feel for each other really gets to you. They initially meet in a bar, where her roommate and best friend owns it and works as a bartender. The story just kicks off from there: Lexi tries her damnedest to get Duncan, while he keeps saying "No, no, no," while his body is saying, "Yes, yes, yes." In this case, Lexi is the chaser, Duncan is the chasee. :-) The secondary characters also enhance the storyline, and play key parts in their relationship, and it really fills out the story.

I had a blast reading this book. Again, the tension just grabbed me and didn't let go. My only nitpick is that there were a few spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors that could've been eliminated with one more pass-through from a proofreader. But even that couldn't take away from the fun of reading "Siren Song."

Just ignore them and enjoy the ride; this book is definitely worth it! Loved it, loved it, LOVED it!!!

Review by: DeLeetra Staley on Oct. 16, 2012 :
** spoiler alert ** I have to say that I enjoyed this story. It is not everyday that an author uses the Siren's as a character. As a matter of fact, I have never read a book that involved a Siren (yes there is always that reference to them in they way a women speaks), but never Greek Mythology Sirens. With the gift to seduce and enslave with their voice. I did enjoy the twist that the author put on the Siren lore. Instead, of them luring men to their death, the men only wanted to please the women. The sirens in this story only wanted to be loved. I thought it was genius to make it so that love was a main focus of the strongest siren.
Now, with that being said I did have one problem a virgin who was already to sleep with a man she had just met. Well, I did not believe that part, but given that this is a paranormal and he was a shifter (wolf, alpha of the pack) I can see how it would be possible. Another thing that kinda bothered me was their first time, he didn't realize she was a virgin. Plus, it was just I don't know odd.
I absolutely loved the fact that the author chose to give the wolf a voice and made it so that Duncan had a choice. It reminds us that we can chose to live half a life or we can accept all things about ourselves (good, bad, dark, light) and live a full life. I did feel connected to the characters and I felt like I understood Lexi. Trying to be something you are not, trying to find a place to fit in the world and trying to be happy. I liked Lexi and her awesome sense of style I also liked when she realized that she was not putting on an act that she was in fact being herself.
I found myself wanting more and I hope the author decides to write a story for the artist.(

Review by: Shirley Frances on Oct. 07, 2012 :
Yes, I admit that what first drew my attention to this book was the cover. It was after I read the blurb that I was curious to see how this all played out and I’m happy to say that it was a very enjoyable read.

This is the story of Lexi Darling and her pursuit to satisfy her hunger for wolf Duncan Tremain. Lexi was very determined in her mission and her story of lust and love was very interesting and hot. From the moment their eyes met they were both doomed and try as they might their lust could not be appeased. They fought, they flirted and in the end they ‘loved’ as fiercely as they fought their attraction.

I really liked Lexi. She was a contradiction of sorts. A virgin with a very sensual side, fun, sarcastic and totally comfortable in her own skin, but with a heart so big and a vulnerability so great that my heart went out to her immediately. I have to say, I admired her tenacity – she knew what she wanted and she was going after it, dammed the cost.

Duncan was everything a hero should be – strong, sexy, funny and tender when it was needed. I especially enjoyed his conversations with his wolf. It was great to see such a strong, capable guy fighting what was going to be inevitable and accept his destiny and his bond with his wolf.

Each and every encounter between Lexi and Duncan were off the charts HOT. I enjoyed them so much that I found myself smirking throughout the book, wondering what was going to happen next. The author, A.C. Warneke, kept me intrigued all throughout waiting for when they were finally going to get together and when they did I was not disappointed at all. It was sexy as hell and very, very good. Totally lived up to its hype!

As you can see, I enjoyed the characters and their chemistry. I also enjoyed the interactions between Lexi and her best friends, Dima and Cole. The dialog was great too, which added to the enjoyment of the book. In the sense of developing the characters, the pace and overall plot and resolution, the writing was very good. However, there were many grammatical errors, at least on my Smashwords version of the book, which sometimes confused me. That is the only reason why I didn’t give it five stars.

All in all, a funny, sexy read with lovable characters and great dialog.

HOLY HOT HELL BATMAN! This is one HOT story!

Lexi is an enigmatic character that lives life to the fullest and takes a no hold barred attitude. She wear outlandish outfits and doesn’t take crap from anybody. I want to be her when I grow up! Of course, Lexi is a Siren, she just doesn’t know it…..YET!

Duncan is the typical Alpha Wolf that has to control everything around him. Then he meets Lexi and all bets are off!

From the moment I started reading this story I was HOOKED! Right off the bat Lexi is doing body shots with her roommate and bar owner. Duncan decides to do a body shot off her and it was GAME ON! Unfortunately for him, Lexi passed out before they could do the deed.

Over the next several weeks, the attraction between them grew astronomically. They were a combustible item looking for a place to explode. Every time they got in the same room with each other the sparks flew!

This is a very straightforward story without much suspense or suffering. The sexual tension was phenomenal I would have liked to have had more suspense in the story. I’m really hoping there will be more in this series. There are some wonderful periphery characters that should get their own stories.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this book! Duncan and Lexi were awesome! I loved the characters all of them, you could even imagine them being your friends and part of your life . Duncan a hot steamy wolf and Lexi a outspoken siren who would have thought! But Warneke makes it work, and the scenes where hot and steamy! I had a blast reading this book! The book is beautifully written both from Lexi and Duncans perspective. Looking forward to reading more from A.C. Warneke!

I received this copy free in exchange for an honest review. (2.75stars actually)

Make no mistake this is a very sexy book from character descriptions to situations to scenery descriptions. That is not to say there is sex on every page – it is not but there is a great deal of flirting and sensuality. Those items are detailed enough that you know much time was spent getting them just right. What I felt was lacking was character development. The leads (Lexi Darling & Duncan/D Tremain were little more than caricatures of what their fully developed selves would be. Lexi felt and read as if she was there for shock value and D came across as sex candy. I never connected with either of them because IMHO they were drawn as secondary characters. The secondary characters however were serviceable and kept the pages going between the heavy flirtation sessions of Lexi & D. Also this was presented to me as a Paranormal Romance (no fault of the author) while there are paranormal romance elements present it is insignificant to the overall storyline. There were also language errors (i.e.there instead of their or they’re; hear instead of here, etc.) which were distracting.

The synopsis intrigued me, I’m sorry I didn’t like this more.

OMG This book was completely amazing! A MUST READ!!!!!!!

I loved it and read it with in 24hr as i couldn't put it down and i will have to read it again and again.

The sexual tension between Lexi and Duncan are steamy and hot!

Lexi, a column writer for a magazine, meets Duncan and is instanly attracted to him and has sexual desires for him. Still a virgin, her sexual desires are stirred when she looks in his eyes, she knows there is something about him that she craves, needs and feels addicted to him, she wants him and won't stop till she's got him.

Duncan feels the same when he meets Lex. Just the though of her gives him an erection. He feels possessive over her and wants her, but he is also aware that he is a wolf and doesn't want to let the beast take over and claim her and hurt her. As one bite to a human could kill, as his kind have never been able to change a human without heartache and pain from the loss of loosing a loved one! At war with himself and the wolf, he trie,s to fight his desire for Lexi.

Lexi later finds out that she is a Siren and is learning what that mean. She is also worried that it's because of this gift that she feels she put a spell on Duncan and that's why he wants her too and knows that she is also at risk of heartache and pain.

The book is beautifully written, both from Lexi and Duncans perspective. A.C. Warneke has a new fan and look forward to more stories like this!
