Taming The Wolf

Picture


Attacked by a wolf while hiking, Anna Avery's life just got a little hairier. Living in the Big Horn mountains in Wyoming, with a group of werewolves who are more animal than human, Anna must try to hold onto her human side. It's not easy when the alpha continues to persuade her into his bed, while another wolf is chomping at the bit to become her mate. To top it all off, dead bodies are showing up and it just so happens that Anna was the last to see them alive. She'll have to work to prove her innocence and taming the wolf who bites first and asks questions never.

JoAnna's Review:

As some of you know, I'm a huge fan of were-anything. Wolves, Bear, Felines, it doesn't matter. SO I've read a lot of werewolf books. I have to say, I *LOVED* this story. From the moment you meet Anna you connect with her. There were a few places where I assumed one thing would happen, but Stephanie threw me a  twist. And Adam, YUMMY! Can you say sexy alpha male? When it looks like the odds are stacked against them, Nelson still delivers an ending that will make you smile-and buy the next book. Buy Love Potion No.11 for this story alone. It's worth that whole 99cents!

Wednesday, October 29th is our Mummy-Wrap-Up Party! Join us and see Halloween pictures from the LPN11 authors. I'll be giving away a FREE digital copy of Love Potion No.11!

 Autumn is a professional writer and stay at home mom with three kids, a dog and an active imagination. She’s married to her high school sweetheart, John, who is known to bring her flowers "just because.” After 34 years in Alaska, she moved to Washington with her family to enjoy a state with actual seasons. She started self-publishing in 2010 after a string of rejections that read, “We love your writing, but we’re not sure how to market it.” She published on Smashwords, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble, which lead to a number of bestsellers. After The Charmer hit #1 on Barnes & Noble for fantasy romance, she threw herself into editing and uploading her backlist.

Her income for 2011 was $100,000, far exceeding her best year with traditional publishing. In 2012, Amazon acquired Dorchester Books, which had picked up two of her books, and Autumn gave Amazon the rights to publish When Sparks Fly and No Words Alone (from the Sparks Series), believing that diversification is good business. While Autumn Dawn is grateful for the opportunities traditional publishing provided, she remains passionate about self-publishing. Keep an eye on her blog for news about upcoming books!



Iron & Hemlock


Life can change in the blink of an eye.

It was just an ordinary day when lightning struck and sent Jordan spinning back in time. Trapped in Victorian England, practical Jordan will have to abandon her disbelief in magic. Pursued by a sexy golden griffin and a dark fae who wants her blood, she just might rediscover the thrill of falling in love.

Meet Melissa Lummis!

Melissa Lummis considers herself a truth seeker, a peaceful warrior, a paranormal and fantasy writer, an avid reader, a thru-hiker, a Penn Stater, a wife, a mother, and a free thinker.  She believes the universe conspires to help an adventurer.  And if we live our lives as if it is a daring adventure (and it is!), then everything we need will find its way to us.

Her books have been described as new age suspense in a fantasy setting, but they are also straight up, steamy Paranormal Romance.  The Love and Light Series is currently available at most ebook retailers, as well as the Little Flame Series, a spin off focusing on the character Fiamette from the Love and Light world.

Recently, she’s ventured into contemporary and erotic romance. Her first short story in this genre, Exquisite Folly, appeared in the anthology Just a Night, and a full-length novel is in the works. It’s a spin off of Exquisite Folly and will feature all of its characters. Keep an eye out next spring or subscribe to her newsletter to find out exactly when it will arrive.

She lives in rural Virginia with her husband, two children, an Alaskan Malamute, and a myriad of forest creatures.  The nature of her mind dictates that she write to stay sane.  Otherwise, her fertile imagination takes off on tangents of its own accord, creating scenarios and worlds that confuse the space-time continuum. Namaste, dear friends.


 
Enlightened

Loti Dupree is about to learn that karma’s a nightmare.  After her husband’s sudden illness and mysterious death, ominous nightmares and psychic attacks have her running for her life—and straight into the arms of a dark and broody vampire.



In his world of closely guarded secrets, every answer she uncovers leads to more questions. Sexy distractions teeter between dangerous and too good to quit, while Loti struggles with losing and finding herself in the arms of this mysterious creature. When the attacks intensify and friends become casualties, she must face the truth whether she wants to or not.



Someone out there will stop at nothing to kill her and only the vampire named Wolf and a destiny she isn’t prepared to embrace stands between her and an early grave.

Fun Fact:



The ashram in Enlightened is inspired by a real ashram right here in my neck of the woods, the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. Yes, there really is an ashram in Virginia. It’s called Yogaville and it’s an amazing place. The Lotus shrine I write about really exists, too, and when I first saw it, I knew it would be the perfect addition to my novel.



It was founded by Sri Swami Satchidananda and is a vibrant yoga community focusing on the precepts of Integral Yoga and the teachings of Satchidananda.

While my Marksville Ashram is nothing like the Yogaville ashram, considering it was founded by vampires, I did picture this incredibly beautiful, peaceful place while I was writing my novels.







 Hope you enjoyed meeting Melissa!
Lovingly, 
Jo

Say hello to USA Today best seller, LP Dover!
 
L.P. Dover, is a southern belle residing in North Carolina along with her husband and two beautiful girls. Before she even began her literary journey she worked in Periodontics enjoying the wonderment of dental surgeries.
Not only does she love to write, but she loves to play tennis, go on mountain hikes, white water rafting, and you can’t forget the passion for singing. Her two number one fans expect a concert each and every night before bedtime and those songs usually consist of Christmas carols.
Aside from being a wife and mother, L.P. Dover has written over nine novels including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, and her standalone novel, Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read is romantic suspense and she also loves writing it. However, if she had to choose a setting to live in it would have to be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.
L.P. Dover is represented by Marisa Corvisiero of Corvisiero Literary Agency.

 Forever_Fae-LPDover_(bookone)
Forever Fea:
 He leans down, lips parted, and then our lips connect …We didn’t know that this one kiss has FOREVER changed the Land of the Fae.”
According to the Prophecy proclaimed many years ago, Princess Calista of the Summer Court is destined to change the Land of the Fae from the evil determined to destroy it. Her powers are phenomenal, and she secretly trains for battle with her handsome warrior friend, Merrick, who unbeknownst to her protects her heart as well, in hopes of keeping it for himself. At least, until the seductive Prince Ryder attends the Guardian Ceremony and instantly sends a fire burning through her veins and a connection so deep they both discover a love above anything imaginable.
No one knows how Calista is destined to change the kingdoms, but there is one that does. He not only craves Calista’s power, but her body as well, and his goal is to steal her power, make her his Dark Queen, and take over the Land of the Fae.
Will the evil succeed in claiming Calista’s soul? Or will the two men that fight for her heart save her from despair, and help her fulfill her destiny to become what she was meant to be.

 For Rafe Brooks, running from a broken heart means losing himself in alcohol and women. Lots of women, none of whom will remember him, since he has the ability to manipulate their minds and make them forget.
Numbing the pain works until he meets an irresistible redhead with secrets of her own. She offers him the opportunity to join forces with an organization that will use his powers for good rather than his own amusement.
Jocelyn rocks his world with her unapologetic passion and makes him believe for the first time he just might survive heartbreak.
When a mission takes the two of them undercover to infiltrate a commune with suspicious activity, they discover it's just the tip of a plot to cause world-wide anarchy. Hiding their extraordinary powers and real identities is crucial to staying alive. For Rafe and Jocelyn, when life is uncertain, love is undeniable.

Give a great big welcome to the elusive  LK Rigel!!! (I had to search for this picture, LOL! She's just beautiful, it should be front and center on her page.)

L.K. has been a newspaper reporter, a singing waitress, a public school teacher, and a court reporter. Her work has appeared in Literary Mama and Tattoo Highway. Her short story SLURP is included in DEADLY TREATS, Anne Frasier's Halloween anthology published by Nodin Press, and her dystopian novella SPACE JUNQUE has been optioned for an independent feature film.

 

Give Me: (seriously awesome cover!)

A Romance Reviews top pick.

All she wanted was a vacation ... but Dumnos offered a new life.

Lilith Evergreen has always lived in the California desert, but when she receives an antique ring as a gift, she dreams of a castle by the sea, a magnificent tree at cliff's edge, and a mysterious woman who calls her to Dumnos, a land of mist and rain.

Cade Bausiney is the future Earl of Dumnos, but at present he just wants to bolster the local economy with a scheme to increase tourism. When he meets Lilith, a tourist from the other side of the world, his attraction to her is overwhelming ~ but are the feelings real or magically induced?
