Release Week Review! Denied (Sazi of Luna Lake #3) Cathy Clamp!
Denied - Cathy Clamp



A Novel of the Sazi


The thrilling stand-alone conclusion to the paranormal fantasy Luna Lake series, packed with action and romance


Cathy Clamp's landmark, USA Today bestselling Sazi series concludes with Denied, a thrilling paranormal love story.


Anica Petrovic was once human. Now she's Sazi, a bear-shifter and a hero for destroying a European kidnapping ring that was turning human children into shifters. Anica has embraced her Sazi self; and is settling into Luna Lake with her father and brother, happy to live in a shifter community where all are welcome. Love is in the air between Anica and a mysterious newcomer, Tristin, and between Anica's brother and Scott, an owl-shifter who worries about his family's reaction when they scent his attraction to another man.


A series of violent murders rocks the town. The killings appear to have been done by a bear. Anica's super-sensitive nose tells her Tristin, also a bear-shifter, is innocent of the murders...but that he's hiding something dangerous.


The conclusion to the “Sazi of Luna Lake” trilogy is a thrilling and energetic read that keeps readers on the edge.


Anica and Tristin are two strong, vibrant characters that easily draw the readers in and hold them hostage throughout their story. The relationship between these two is full of suspense, emotional turmoil and undeniable sizzling chemistry and two characters that aren’t sure about this mating be in anyway something that they want. Tristin is a mysterious and sexy shifter that sparks the readers’ imagination as much as he sends sparks flying in every direction while Anica is new bear shifter that is curious and readers can’t help but get caught up in her enthusiasm and sparkling energy.


The smooth flowing plot is fast paced and full of thrills, suspense and magic that keeps readers hanging on to every last world in anticipation of what will happen next while surprising twists keep them guessing whether the good guys will come out on top. The author makes the story come alive with well written words that paints vivid imagery and makes it easy for the reader to picture each and every scene.


The world of the Sazi is creative, well developed and full of fascinating and unique shifters that makes each book an adventurous and romantic read that has readers wanting more. Having read the Tales of the Sazi series is not necessary in order to enjoy the Sazi of Luna Lake trilogy but reading will enhance your enjoyment as some of the events that take place are the result of previous events and readers get to know the previous characters that do make appearances in this series. I for one hope that there are future books in the Sazi world like maybe the children of the Sazi…

Hi, I’m USA TODAY and Nielsen Bookscan bestselling author Cathy Clamp. I write urban fantasy/paranormal romance for Tor Books, including the Tales of the Sazi (shapeshifter urban fantasy romance) series, The Thrall (vampire) trilogy, the Blood Singer (urban fantasy, as Cat Adams) series—through book 6, and the new Novels of the Sazi series, beginning in August, 2015.


I’ve won a bunch of awards for my books over the years. My favorite was the Career Achievement Award for Paranormal Romance in May, 2008 from RT Bookreviews Magazine. I also shared the win for several co-authored books with C.T. Adams of the Book Buyer’s Best Award, the RT Bookreviews Reviewer’s Choice Award, the Reviewers International Award of Excellence, the Texas Gold Romance Award, the Write Touch Readers Award, and several others. It’s gratifying and humbling to win awards for books that you put your heart into, and I hope you enjoy them as much as other readers have!


I’ve also written several stand-alone novels, not in series, including my very first novel, The Road To Riches, an historical fiction about a railroad race in Colorado’s Silver Boom period, and Magic’s Design, the first urban fantasy published as Cat Adams.


I also write short stories, which is a whole different kind of writing.. I like writing in a lot of different genres, and it’s in short stories where I let my wings spread. I have published short stories in horror, science fiction, mystery, literary, Young Adult, romance, thriller, fantasy and western.


I’m represented by Merrilee Heifetz of Writers House, who is the best agent a writer could ask for! If you are interested in rights purchases, you can reach her at:

I live in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, which actually looks like mountain range that runs across the center of Texas. In geologic terms, a “mountain” is generally considered to be a minimum of 2,000 feet elevation. Anything below that is a “hill”. So, Texas has hills, instead of mountains. (But you’d barely notice the difference!)

Hunter's Moon
Hunter's Moon (Tales of the Sazi, Book 1) - 'C. T. Adams', 'Cathy Clamp'

Interesting concept. Sue wants to die, so she hires Tony, an assassin to off her. Told in first person, Tony's POV, also different. What came next was also interesting.
At first I wondered why Sue was a well known face, didn't have to wait long, it's found out in chapter 2. I was a little disappointed in both Sue and Tony. Neither are that sympathetic or likeable. Sue was such a pushover and doormat. Instead of contemplating suicide, there were so many other ways to get away from her dreadful family! Tony is unapologetic for what he does for a living.
What worked for me is the support each gave the other and acceptance for who they were, without changing. I liked that Sue went into therapy. For 2 characters that I didn't like at first, I liked them both by the end and was entertained by their journey.
The "Sazi" are brought up in the last part of the book, could have used more info about them. Good start to a new series. (That's been out for awhile now, but new to me).

Paranormal Curves: Curvy Heroines of Paranormal Romance
Hunter's Moon (Tales of the Sazi, Book 1) - 'C. T. Adams', 'Cathy Clamp'
King of Clubs - Cheyenne McCray
Night Play - Sherrilyn Kenyon
The Marriage Spell - Mary Jo Putney
Heart Secret - Robin D. Owens
Stone and Earth - Cindy Spencer Pape
A Love Worth Biting For - Roxy Mews
The Last Hour of Gann - R. Lee Smith
Big Bad Wolf - Christine Warren
Bonds of Justice - Nalini Singh

Continuing my look at the Plus Sized Heroine in Romance, let us take a look into the world of shifters, vampires, aliens, and other magical beings. 


The prototype heroine in this sub genre is kick ass and therefore very toned. Also, nanos or immortality of some kind tend to correct all body issues and keep everyone in the tip top shape. 


So, other than a sub sub genre of BBW Erotic Paranormal Romance in which many of the books are not so good or simply decent, the more rounded heroine isn't so common. The big and tall heroine is though and that is awesome sauce but another post. 


Here are my recommendations for great love stories with Big and Beautiful Women in the lead for Paranormal, Science Fiction, Urban Fiction, and Fantasy Romance. 



In Science Fiction Romance, a sub genre I wish would blow up like New Adult so I would have more to read. 


The Last Hour of Gann by R. Lee Smith digs into the world of fat hatred with a heroine who is pushy and not accommodating and then her weight is used as weapon to attack her.  The weight issues in this book are painful as the writer really highlights the societal issues around body types.  It is a grand read all around and this is just one of the threads. 


Clearly, I need more good SFR BBW recs!  I think there are some Cyborg/Alien ones but they are more 3 stars to me and I try to rec 4 stars and higher unless it is just the bomb in terms of the theme. 


 In Paranormal Romance,


1. A Love Worth Biting For  by Roxy Mews 

2. Stone and Earth  by Cindy Spencer Pape 

3. Bonds of Justice by Nalini Singh 

4. Heart Secret by Robin Owens

5. The Marriage Spell: A Novel by Mary Jo Putney 

6. Night Play by Sherrilyn Kenyon 

7. Big Bad Wolf (The Others) by Christine Warren 


In Fantasy,


Wonderland: King of Clubs by Cheyenne McCray  This is good erotic romance with a Alice in Wonderland like world. 



In Urban Fantasy, 


Hunter's Moon (Tales of the Sazi) by CT Adams and Cathy Clamp. I think this is one of the most underrated Shifter Romance Series out there. The world building is beyond excellent. The love stories are compelling and its just plain cool.  This book kicks it all off. 


If you would like to vote for the best of the best, go to these Goodreads lists: Paranormal Curves: Curvy Heroines in PNR and Supernova: Luscious Heroines of Science Fiction Romance


If you would like recommendations for BBW heroines books from all the sub genres plus great body positive images of plus sized heroines, check out my Pinterest Board: Real Curves: Best Romance Heroines Who Have'em.

Gingers! Redheads in Romance
Live - Mary Ann Rivers
Outlander - Diana Gabaldon
The Unidentified Redhead - Alice Clayton
Never a Gentleman - Eileen Dreyer
Angels' Flight (Guild Hunter, #0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 3.5) - Nalini Singh
Devil in Winter - Lisa Kleypas
Timeless Moon - C.T. Adams,Cathy Clamp
Beast - Pepper Pace
The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie - Jennifer Ashley
The Chocolate Touch - Laura Florand

While we only make up only 1 to 2 percent of the world populations, were recently threatened with extinction, and South Park made us a very funny slur, we thrive in the pages of Romanceland. 


Jamie of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon fame being the most famous red headed gentleman and maybe Grace, The Unidentified Redhead  by Alice Clayton being the most notable leading lady. 


Redheads have plenty of stereotypes to contend with like all hair colors but I think what I like about Gingers in Romance (besides the self representation is the way, when done right, being redheaded builds the the character physically. We are easier to blush, tend to have freckles, for better or worse think a great deal about our hair as do other people, come in so many shades, and well then there is the more intimate of ginger touches.  


We will only show you if we really like you. 


I love the scene in Outlander where Claire gazes on Jamie while he is nude in the sun getting to see all those private bits of redheadedness.  This is my plea for please, please more ginger heroes in Romance. :) 


There is also a stunning scene in Eileen Dryer's Never a Gentleman (The Drake's Rakes series)  of discovery between the hero and the heroine. Wowza. 


I recently waxed poetic about Mary Ann River's Live (The Burnside Series): The Burnside Series and all the details of the heroine's gingerness through the hero's loving, lustblown (I stole this word from Charlotte Stein and I am keeping it) eyes. 


If you would like to see a great video on the Redheads, check this one out! 

All The Science Reasons Redheads Do That Redhead Thing They Do


And now for the lists! In particular order of favorites but my top ten none the less, skipping those already mentioned,

2. Timeless Moon (Tales of the Sazi, Book 6) by Adams and Clamp 

3. Frisco's Kid by Suzanne Brockmann

4. Wild Oats and Runabout by Pamela Morsi
