ABOUT THE BOOK


What a Wolf Desires 
by Amy Pennza 
(Lux Catena Series, #1) 
Publication date: November 21st 2018
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

 


Synopsis:

 

Lizette Butler has the only thing she ever wanted—freedom from her pack Alpha, Maxime Simard, and the ability to decide her own fate. She and Max have a turbulent history and a powerful—if unwilling—attraction. Unfortunately, mere distance can’t stop the past from crashing back in to disrupt her life. Nor can it stop the rush of desire that overwhelms her the minute she sees him again. Her body may crave his physical seductions, but her heart will never let her love him.

 

As leader of the New York territory, Max has everything—wealth, power, and an army of wolves ready to jump at his command. But a mistake he made five years ago may have cost him the only thing worth living for: Lizette. He also knows something Lizette doesn’t—she possesses a rare ability that makes her a target and a prize.

 

Max can command Lizette to return to the pack, but he can’t command her trust…or her love. And if he can’t heal the rift between them, he may lose her forever.

The inside of the Lodge was brighter than Lizette remembered, the foyer spiraling up a dizzying sixty feet. Twin staircases graced either side, each one leading to a catwalk that appeared to float across the impressive space.

 

The foyer opened onto a massive great room dominated by a huge stone fireplace. She’d spent many an evening lying in front of it, chin propped on her hand, studying the flames.

 

She longed to sink into one of the big leather couches in front of the fireplace, but she had her instructions. Her orders. She was to report directly to the Alpha as soon as she set foot in the building. Disobeying wouldn’t be a good way to start her visit.

 

And a visit is exactly what it’s going to be. As she walked the familiar path to Max’s study, his presence was like a beating heart in the huge Lodge. Each pulse dragged her closer to him, even though every nerve screamed for her to run back out the door and never stop.

 

“Lizette?” a young, feminine voice called behind her.

She stopped and pivoted toward it. “Haley?”

A dark blur shot from the other end of the hallway. Before she could say anything else, Haley threw itself into Lizette’s arms, wrapping her in a tight, perfumed hug with surprising strength.

 

She patted her friend’s springy, light brown curls. “Have you been working out?”

 

Haley laughed and pulled back so they were face-to-face. “It’s the wolf,” she said, her white, even teeth bisected by the thin metal wire of her retainer. “I can’t believe how much it’s changed me in such a short time.”

 

Six weeks earlier, Haley had convinced her guardians to let her spend a weekend with Lizette. Haley turned seventeen that past Christmas with no sign of her wolf emerging. The Turn happened at different ages for everyone, but it usually happened by puberty—and because girls tended to mature faster than boys, females usually Turned earlier. But Haley hadn’t made the change, and her guardians worried she never would. Among werewolves, such wolves were called latents.

 

Latents had a wolf counterpart, but they couldn’t Turn. They felt the pull of the wolf’s instincts but had no outlet for them. Lizette had heard it described as being a pianist with your hands permanently tied behind your back.

 

It was a sad, frustrating existence for wolves, cursed to live trapped inside their human bodies, unable to transform into their other selves. The hope of finding a mate was slim, since they lacked the ability to form the lifelong bonds so treasured by the wolves, and many couldn’t bear to be around normal werewolves.

 

The problem had even spilled over from werewolf society and trickled down into the human world. Every now and then news headlines told of a madman or killer who’d committed some unspeakable crime. In some cases, it was just a random crazy human. But in others it was a latent who’d lost his or her grip on reality, and the local Alpha would dispatch a group of wolves to quietly take care of the problem.

 

In the morning the human police would find the defendant hanged in his cell. Was it murder? Yes, but it was too risky to allow those wolves to live.

 

The human word lunatic was a lot closer to the truth than most people realized.

 

At first Haley’s guardians thought she might simply be a late bloomer. But when puberty came and went and she still hadn’t Turned, they were desperate. So they sent her to Lizette, hoping some time with another female around her own age might relieve some of the Haley’s anxieties. What if she never Turned? Latents often lived a sort of half-life. Cut off from the werewolf community, many committed suicide.

 

To everyone’s delight, Haley Turned for the first time during her stay at Lizette’s place. She and Lizette had danced around the apartment blasting OneDirection and Taylor Swift until Lizette got a migraine and the downstairs neighbor pounded on the ceiling to shut them up.

 

Lizette squeezed Haley’s bicep. “I’m impressed. You have Madonna arms.”

 

Haley laughed, her pretty face lit up with joy. It made Lizette’s heart happy to see her like this. In a way she felt protective of her, and not just because Lizette was there the first time Haley Turned. Like Lizette, Haley lost her parents as a child.

Although Haley was raised in a werewolf community, they’d both been foster kids of a sort. Haley knew what it felt like to be an outsider.

 

Haley’s expression grew abruptly serious. “Have you seen him yet?”

 

Lizette swallowed. Of course Haley knew why Lizette was here.


There was only one thing—or rather one person—who could have compelled her to return. “Not yet. Soon.”

 

“Oh.”

 

They stared at each other. Even at seventeen, Haley understood that being summoned to appear before the Alpha was serious business. Everyone did. In Lizette’s case, however, it held a special significance.

 

“I should go.”

 

“You should go.”

 

They both laughed.


Lizette took a reluctant step toward the foyer. “I’m sure I’ll see you later. We have a ton of things to catch up on.” She dropped her voice to a whisper. “Like boys.”

Although goodness knew Lizette had little advice to offer in that area. Aside from one brief—and that was generous—relationship as a teen, her love life was DOA.

 

“Definitely,” Haley said. “And I want to run together before you go.”

 

Lizette gave Haley a little wave and tried to ignore the way her stomach lurched as she headed back the way she’d come. She stopped in front of a set of big double doors and wiped her palms on her jeans. She angled her chin downand took in her sweater and mint green Chucks. Was Aiden right? Maybe she should have changed.

 

This is ridiculous. She was twenty-four years old, not fifteen…so why did she feel like a teenager reporting to the principal’s office?

 

Or a woman on a first date.

 

Not going there. She’d see what he wanted and then go home. Simple as that. She took a deep breath and knocked.

 

“Come,” said a low voice from behind the door.

 

The sound ripped through her like a thunderclap, and her knees almost gave out. She clenched her fists and pressed her fingernails into her palms—a trick she learned from Dom. The pain steadied her. She pushed the door open…

 

…and locked gazes with the Alpha. Her Alpha. Maxime Alexandre Simard.

He sat behind his desk, his posture relaxed. A lord in command of his domain.

And in the werewolf world, that’s exactly what he was.

 

The first time she saw him was in the back of a Los Angeles County courtroom.

Her caseworker had called her foster parents the day before, breathless, saying a relative had come forward—a distant cousin of Lizette’s mother. He was flying in from New York and would be there the next day to file the paperwork.

 

In court he wore a charcoal gray suit and a dark blue tie. His jacket sleeves rode up when he shook her foster father’s hand, exposing his shirt cuffs and the strange metal jewelry he wore there instead of buttons. When she slid past him to climb into the limo, she accidentally brushed his sleeve, and the fabric felt like a cloud against her skin. He’d smelled of pine and soap and something…darker...a rich spice she couldn’t identify.

 

Lizette knew right away that he wasn’t human. There was something other about him. At fifteen, she’d been old enough to see through a disguise, even a convincing one. As soon as the door closed, she’d blurted, “Are you human?”

 

“Not entirely.”

 

Her heart had pounded so hard her chest had hurt. “Will you hurt me?”

 

“Never. I promise you.”

 

“Are you…” She thought back to the stash of vampire novels she kept hidden under her bed at her foster parents’ house. “Are you immortal?”

 

“I’m afraid not.”

 

Disappointment washed over her...followed by renewed curiosity.


“How old are you, then?”

 

“Twenty-seven.” She must have looked surprised, because he smiled.


“You expected me to be older?”

 

“If you’re not human, then what are you?” He spoke perfect English, but he had an accent…something refined and Old World. It curled around her brain like a lazy cat. She caught herself leaning toward him, hoping he’d speak again.

 

“Ah.” He looked thoughtful for a minute. “What do you think I am, petite?”

 

“I…don’t know.”

 

He tapped on the glass dividing the back seat from the front, and the car rumbled to life and slid into traffic. When he turned back to her, his light blue eyes were different. Sharper. “What if I told you that you and I are the same…”

 

Sitting behind his desk now, Max looked exactly as he had in the courtroom nine years ago. Knowing what she did today, Lizette knew he’d look more or less the same for the rest of his long life.

 

His face was aristocratic and refined—his patrician nose set between straight black eyebrows. He wore his thick black hair brushed back from a broad, unlined forehead, and his jaw was shadowed by what looked like several days’growth of beard. But his light blue eyes were his most arresting feature. Pale as a spring sky, they focused on her as if she was the only creature on earth.

 

He was the only wolf she knew whose eyes changed very little between forms. To notice any difference, a person had to be standing toe-to-toe with him.

 

Or kissing him.

 

Her breath hitched. She realized she was staring and dropped her gaze to the thick patterned carpet. Shit. First she challenged Dom. Now she just challenged Max.

With Dom, she’d breached protocol because she was angry. This time she hadn’t even realized she was doing it.

 

“Sit,” Max said, his voice curt. He remained seated as she approached the leather chairs in front of his desk. That didn’t surprise her. Alphas stood for no one—especially this Alpha.

 

She perched on the edge of one of the chairs, her gaze on the space near his right shoulder. He sat with his elbows on the desk, studying her.

 

He’d rolled back the long sleeves of his starched white button-down, revealing muscled forearms sprinkled with black hairs. The casual style should have made him look less intimidating, but it did the opposite.

 

She felt his gaze wander across her body, its heat like a spotlight against her skin. All thoughts of controlling her heart rate fled—the meditation she practiced during the drive scattering like a flock of birds.

 

As if drawn by a magnet, she locked gazes with him again. The back of her neck tingled as they stared at each other. If he felt anything in the soft skin of his right thumb, he gave no indication.

 

After a few seconds of uncomfortable silence, he let his wolf creep into his eyes. “You think to challenge me?” he asked softly, sounding merely curious.

 

She lowered her gaze to his collarbone. “No.”


His chair creaked as he leaned back. “You’ve been too long in the human world. You forget our ways.”


“So I’ve heard,” she muttered. The thing was, it was true when Dom said it. This time, though, she hadn’t forgotten. Normally the wolf’s instinct kicked inand compelled her to drop her gaze whenever a more dominant wolf was around. Max was the most dominant wolf in any room, which meant her instinct should have been firing on all cylinders. But it had deserted her just now.


For a brief moment she’d forgotten to avoid staring directly into his eyes. She was surprised she was able to maintain eye contact as long as she had. Apparently the usual rules didn’t apply to them.


“Well,” he continued, “we shall remedy that now that you’re here.”


She cleared her throat. “Since you brought it up, I’d actually like to know why I’m here.”


He rose and walked to the floor-to-ceiling windows facing the gorge a hundred feet below. The windows took up the entire wall—a feature that repeated across most of the rear of the Lodge, which had been built to take advantage of the area’s natural beauty. The wall behind his desk displayed a large map of the United States and Canada. Instead of showing the usual boundary lines, however, it was sectioned into sixty territories—each marked with a capital no human would have recognized. They sat in the New York Territory which, predictably, included all of New York. Unlike the human version, Max’s domain extended all the way north to Quebec.

 

She tore her gaze away from the map. She didn’t need another reminder of his power. It was literally in the room with her, almost like an aura shining around him. She’d never felt it so strongly before. All high-ranking wolves oozed power, but most wielded incredible control over it. If they chose, they could also mute their power so it wasn’t so obnoxious.

 

Was he displaying his on purpose to intimidate her? But no, displays weren’t really Max’s style. He was far too subtle for that.

 

“How are your headaches?” he asked without turning around.

 

She closed her eyes. “Fine.”

 

“I can smell your lie from here.”

 

It was impossible to reply without telling the truth—or getting caught in another lie—so she clamped her mouth shut. She had a feeling he was going to say whatever he wanted to say anyway.

 

“You’ve lost weight.”

 

She gritted her teeth. “In the human world, that’s generally considered a good thing. Women are always trying to lose weight.”

 

“You’re not a human.” He rolled his neck on his shoulders, the movement drawing her gaze. She’d forgotten how big he was. Even if he wasn’t an Alpha, he’d still command any room he entered, and not just because of his physical size. The fabric of his shirt stretched tight over powerful shoulders and a broad back that tapered to lean hips. Her stare sank lower…until she realized where it was headed and tore her eyes away.

 

What was she doing?

 

She must have made a sound, because he turned away from the window. She had his full attention now.

 

Crap, crap, crap.

 

She pressed her damp palms against her jeans as his denim-clad legs appeared before her. He stopped in front of his desk, his body inches from hers. A warm hand lifted her chin and kept lifting her, gently pulling her to her feet.

 

Her heart threatened to leap out of her chest. He tipped her chin up. He’d stuffed his wolf down so deep, he appeared as a normal man—or as normal as Maxime Simard would ever get. In a blink, his demeanor changed. The wolf bled from his eyes, and his gaze dipped to her mouth. They were no longer speaking Alpha-to-subject. This was something entirely different.

 

She knew this Max. He was more terrifying than the Alpha.

 

“You want to know why I called you back.” He made it a statement.

 

She swallowed. “Yes.”

 

His eyes glittered. “That’s easy. I wanted to speak with my wife.”

Q: Where did you get the inspiration to write What a Wolf Desires?

 

A: I’ve always loved urban fantasy that incorporates romance. I devoured Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series and Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series. They both write strong heroines who aren’t afraid to tell overbearing Alphas when to tone it down—or take a hike. That’s what I like about Maxime in What a Wolf Desires. If you pay close attention, you’ll notice how much he respects Lizette. He doesn’t want to control her. If anything, he revels in seeing her in control.

 


Q: Is What a Wolf Desires your first book?

 

A: It’s my second book. I published a book called Ivar’s Prize with a small but respected publisher in 2017. I’ve since republished it under my own publishing name, along with a third book—a contemporary romance called Never Say I Love You.

 


Q: After being traditionally published, what made you decide to go indie?

 

A: Time, lol. I’ve had three manuscripts go to an acquisition committee at well-known romance publishing houses, and it’s a very slow process. The wait to hear back has always been six months or more, and that’s on top of waiting for an editor to read your work and ask if you’re okay with them submitting it to the acquisition team. Once you get a contract, it can take another six months to publish your book. I decided I’d rather spend that time writing. Self-publishing has been so liberating. I love working directly with editors and cover designers. When you’re in control of everything, you feel very connected to each book.

 


Q: What’s your writing process like?

 

A: I try to write every day. Even if it’s just a couple hundred words. I’m usually good for about 2,000 words per writing session. I also avoid the temptation to edit as I go. That process probably doesn’t work for everyone, but it’s the best method for me. If I let myself go back and self-edit all the time, I’d never finish a book. It’s very true that everyone has their own style of writing.

 


Q: What advice do you have for aspiring authors?

 

A: Write every day. It also helps to have a way to organize your work. I love Scrivener, and I know many other writers do, too. It helps you focus on individual scenes, which means you don’t feel overwhelmed by the whole story at once. At the same time, you can get a visual of the big picture, because all of your scenes are visible along the left side of your program. You can drag and move them around. That’s something you can’t do very easily in a word processing program.

 

 

Q: Will Max and Lizette get a sequel?

 

A: I plan to write some scenes for them, which I’ll put in my monthly newsletter. But for now I’m focusing on finishing Remy’s book, What a Wolf Dares. I have a soft spot in my heart for Remy. I’m really excited to share his story. Then I’ll move on to Dom’s book. I can’t wait for Dom’s world to get turned upside down. He needs a little adventure in his life.

4 STAR Release Week Review! Entry Shock (Rogue Rescue #3) Mia West!

 

Hello Reader! Thank for joining me! Today I have for you, a review of a m/m paranormal shifter romance with some surprising but sexy shifter types!

 

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 


An unexpected entry…

 

Shark shifter Ian Mackey works alone.

His job is important: to protect the guys in his covert rescue swimmer unit—from predators, from the press, from each other.

 

So what if he lives alone, too? And eats alone? And sleeps alone?

Solitude works for him. Lets him focus on the job and a few favorite extracurriculars.

 

The last thing he needs is a rescue partner.

Especially one who’s prickly and stubborn and distractingly hot.

And who intends to evade Mackey in the water and out.

 

A shock to the system…

 

Trick Harper doesn’t need a damned babysitter.

He’s a veteran rescue shifter. He embraces the mission, he gets the job done, and his deafness is an asset.

 

So what if he does things his own way? Goes a little off-plan? Gets creative?Autonomy works for him. Or it did, until the one time it didn’t.

 

Now he’s chained to another shark, a hulking bruiser who pushes every button Trick’s got.

 

Especially the ones that haven’t been touched in a while.

If Mackey takes matters into his big, scarred hands, ignoring him is going to be impossible.

 

ENTRY SHOCK is the 3rd novel in the ROGUE RESCUE series, steamy paranormal romances featuring marine-shifter heroes:


1. COURSE CORRECTION
2. CRUSH DEPTH
3. ENTRY SHOCK

 

ROGUE RESCUE Series
Saving lives is their mission.
Saving each other will be far more dangerous.

 

ROGUE RESCUE is a companion series to GRIZZLY RIM.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

The newest Rogue Rescue romance shocks readers with gripping emotions and thrilling suspense. Ian and Trick are two strong, captivating males that easily draw readers into their story. The relationship starts off with a hurdle to be overcome but then both move on the sizzling heat that burns between them while trying to adjust to the changes in their lives and on the team. The romance is sweet but with lots of emotional turmoil that adds depth and makes it easy for the readers to understand where these characters are coming from. Ian’s past plays a major part of the emotional turmoil and Trick is fundamental in adding a positive influence in Ian’s emotional issues, which surprises readers as well as the characters. There is a bit of a lopsided view of this couple as readers are given more detail about Ian and less about Trick, which readers may feel would make the romance a bit better, but doesn’t stop them from enjoying it.

 

The story is fast paced and flows smoothly from the pages with their searing romance but with added excitement of death defying rescue missions and an unexpected twists that answers some questions regarding Ian but adds more in relation to the team. The unique shifters and their roles in this fascinating world makes for a really great change in shifter romances and the author brings it all to vivid life with great detailing that makes it easy for the readers to imagine each and every scene. This romance can be read as a standalone story, but readers may find that reading the previous books gives them a better understanding of this fascinating world as the conclusion definitely lets readers know that there is more going on.

5 STAR New Release Review! Renee's Mates (Churchill Polar Bears) Shelley Munro!

 

Hello Readers! Today I am going to share my 5 star review of Renee's Mates - A paranormal revere harem romance by Shelley Munro!

 


Four brothers seek one woman. Mission: revenge.

 

Soldier Renee Paulson and her best friend witnessed a murder. When her friend dies in suspicious circumstances, Renee flees to a secluded town. A helicopter pilot, she flies tourists over the tundra and delivers supplies while keeping a low profile.

 

Like most werewolves, the Taktuq brothers are family oriented. Their younger sister is adamant Renee had an affair with her soldier husband, and they promise to investigate. Exhaustive research leads them to the Arctic town of Churchill. Renee Paulson or Renee James, the name she goes by now, is a sexy surprise.

She’s solitary and wary, and it seems she is their mate. Perturbed, the brothers push on with wooing and romance while conflicted by their obligation to their sister. Peeling away Renee’s protective layers reveals a desirable, intelligent woman—one they wish to keep in their lives.

 

When an assassin catches up with Renee, the Taktuq brothers embrace their wolves to save her. They’ll do anything to guard their mate, even protect her from their sister.

 

Contains a strong, plain-Jane heroine, four werewolf heroes with attitude, lots of secret sexy times, a pissed younger sister and an assassin with a big gun.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 


The newest romance in the Churchill Polar Bear series is a red hot and amazing read. Renee and the Taktuq brothers are strong, captivating characters that easily pull readers into their story which starts off with the four brothers on a revenge mission. The heat between the four brothers and Renee burns brighter with every turn of the page and the romance is sweet but hey there is four of them and only one of her, so you get the usual questioning of the relationship by the heroine but Renee is made of stronger stuff than most, so the passion quickly becomes scorching hot.

 

The suspense in the story builds throughout this fast paced plot as the brothers have to decide between the revenge that their sister wants and their mate and to really get the adrenaline pumping, Renne’s past has caught up to her and is one step away from silencing her forever. Surprising twists add a bit more excitement to the story and readers never find a dull moment so they stay glued to the pages. Oh and readers are happy that the sexy polar bears put in appearance but this book is all for the wolves.

USA Today bestselling author Shelley Munro lives in Auckland, the City of Sails, with her husband and a cheeky Jack Russell/mystery breed puppy.

 

Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE soon after they married (translation of New Zealand speak – big overseas experience). A twelve month long adventure lengthened to six years of roaming the world.

Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub.

 

While travel is still a big attraction, these days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer following another love – that of writing stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby and rugby league (strictly for research purposes), and curling up with a good book.

Book Description:

 

For all the holly-jolly times, family gatherings are complex no matter who—or what—you are. When you’re hunting for the latest “it” toy to stuff a stocking, it doesn’t matter if you’re alive or Undead, fanged or furry—you’re just as desperate to be the cool dad. And then there are the family grumps who never send cards, the ones who eat all the good candy, and those who drool and dig up the neighbor’s yard.

 

No, the Yuletide Season isn’t for the faint of heart—and sometimes it’s downright demonic—but holiday miracles make it all worthwhile. Chance encounters and unexpected forgiveness remind us that joy doesn’t come in a gift-wrapped box.

This novella from the Dark Forgotten world catches up with favorite characters for a fresh take on the holidays. Those visiting the world for the first time will understand why Chicago Tribune called it “simply superb.”

 

Grab this book and return to the world of the Dark Forgotten. Santa Claws is waiting!

“Don’t you want to go see Santa Claws?” Errata Jones asked in her husky, teasing voice.

 

“Meh,” Perry Baker replied, still grumpy at the prospect of crowds and gift-giving decisions. Plus, it was cold, gray, and rainy—a typical December day in the Pacific Northwest.

 

“Where’s your boundless holiday spirit?” She turned into the parking lot outside the Fairview Sports and Recreation Center. It was the final day of the Yuletide Holiday Market, an arts and crafts event by and for the local supernatural community. “Counting today, there’s only three shopping days till Christmas.”

 

“I really hope you’re not going to make me sit on Santa’s knee.”

 

“I don’t think so, darling. That would be weird, even for us.”

 

Errata swung her Jaguar coupe into the last parking space, beating out a massive pickup by a whisker. The truck made a sound like a startled dinosaur as it lurched to a stop on the frosty pavement. Turning off the Jaguar’s ignition, Errata smoothed her chin-length, jet-black hair, then glanced in the rear-view mirror, looking pleased with herself. Perry twisted in his seat to see the pickup driver turn a Christmassy scarlet and lurch off.

 

 

Perry willed his heart to resume its normal rhythm. Errata was a werecougar, and there were reasons cats shouldn’t drive. Werewolves like him were another matter.

Wolves appreciated order, including stop signs. Cats did things because they could—like pester him into going to this stupid craft fair.

 

That’s what he got for befriending a feline. He cast her a sidelong look, taking in her high cheekbones and smooth, golden skin. It was all he could do not to reach over and stroke her hair, but that would be crossing a boundary. She’d made it clear from the start that cats walked alone.

 

Errata finished preening and gave him an arch look. “Shouldn’t you be shopping for your human, what’s-her-name?”

 

Perry released his seatbelt. “Her name is Tiffani. With an i.”

 

“Tiffani. Of course it is.” Errata patted his cheek with a pitying look. “Come on. First fifty guests get a goodie bag.”

 

“She’s fun,” Perry said, sounding defensive even to himself.

 

“Humans generally are,” she said agreeably. “You should buy her something really nice.”

 

 

“Men don’t shop before December 23rd,” he protested as he got out of the car.

 

“Friends don’t let friends give their sweethearts, even ones named Tiffani with an i, gift cards.”

 

“But gift cards make sense.”

 

Errata flung the end of her scarf over her shoulder with a flick of one gloved hand. “Be grateful you have me to watch over you.” She clicked the locks and swept toward the entrance of the building, leaving Perry to catch up.

 

“Cats,” he grumbled. “What do you want for Yule?”

 

“Not a gift card.”

10 Holiday Gifts for Your Supernatural Friends

 

 

Christmas shopping can be challenging at the best of times, but the non-humans on the list can present special problems. Need ideas for what to get the vampire with centuries of clutter in his garage or the mermaid who needs everything waterproofed? Here are some suggestions from our retail experts:

 

1. Get that vampire a month’s rental on a storage locker big enough to house his spare coffin collection!


2. For the shifters we suggest many, many lint rollers or a rechargeable hand vacuum!


3. For the fussy feline shifters, how about modern art that doubles as a scratching post?


4. As a stocking stuffer, nothing beats fake human teeth for the vampires!


5. A definite must have: non-toxic chew toys for the werepuppies.


6. Environmentally friendly dry cleaning options for the mummies on your list.


7. Steaks


8. Stakes


9. A personal crossroad for that special demon. Top seller: something on Route 666.

 

10. High-strength spray adhesive is a thoughtful present for those zombies who just can’t keep it together.

 

Just remember, whatever you choose, it’s the thought that counts—or possibly the deliciously fresh brains that just manufactured that thought …

ABOUT THE BOOKS

 

 

Their Unexpected Mate
Paranormal Protection Unit Book 1
by April Zyon
Genre: Paranormal Romance


After the devastating loss of her father, Katherine Douglas picks up her entire life and moves to the wilds of Montana. She sets about making a home only to find the unexpected—three larger-than-life men that send her perfectly planned future into a dizzying tailspin.


In the middle of a sting, Treasach “Scythe” Campbell, Quinlan “Mac” McAllister, and Sullivan “Sully” McAllister, Alpha Team for the Paranormal Protection Unit, were more worried about getting out in one piece than what the future might hold. But then in she walked—their mate. Like a punch to the gut, instincts older than time kick in, and the three men know nothing, but the driving need to be with her.


They're not human, not by a long shot, but they will love her with a fierceness no other could. Will she run from what they are and what they are asking her for, or can they convince her to heed the primal call from within?


Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.

**********


The second book in the Paranormal Protection Unit gets down and gritty with some extreme emotional upheaval at the beginning and them proceeds to heat the pages with a scorching hot romance. Maya and Quincy both are strong, vivid characters that reach out and grab readers’ attention as they discover that they are mates. But that discovery has reactions that are in no way typical, but with surprises, manipulations and a burning attraction go a long way toward pushing this relationship in the direction it needs to go.

 

The plot is fast paced and keeps readers glued to the pages with thrilling suspense, a nasty brother with evil intentions and some unexpected twists. The story is also full of magic and while disturbing a fitting magical conclusion the conflict that the nasty brother puts in motion and the romance also provides readers with an enjoyable and passionate romance. The story is well rounded and the author creates vivid imagery with her words making it easy for readers to become caught up in the story.
