Blurb:
Werewolf Sean Holloway treats the village marketplace like a sexual buffet, though his charm does little to win over his latest entrée of choice. Whether because of Jem Stonehouse’s unique scent, her headstrong nonchalance, or the fact he is forbidden to see her by his pack’s rules, Sean wants her.
When Jem is nothing but flippant toward his advances, he pursues her with vigour, stealing moments alone with her without a libido-driven agenda.
The new and heady experience for him drives their relationship beyond romantic interest, and straight toward love.
That is, until Jem learns the truth about Sean’s heritage. Knowledge of the existence of werewolves leads to only one outcome: death.
In this prequel to Darkness & Light*, we are taken back in time, to the very beginning of Jem and Sean’s love-across-the-centuries relationship.
Did it end there? Or did Sean defy his own pack to save the woman he loves?
*Can be read as a standalone.

Book Blast and giveaway: Darkness and Light by J.A. Belfield @JABelfield

Forest fog

Today marks the RE-release of J.A. Belfield’s Darkness & Light, first book in the Holloway Pack series.

And to celebrate it’s release, as well as her birthday (which is also TODAY) there’s a GREAT giveaway going on.

But first, let’s check out the book.

Darkness & Light

Jem Stonehouse, a housewife with a neurotic husband bent on keeping her in line, dreams about werewolves in, what she believes, is a bid to escape boredom.

Sean Holloway is a werewolf, living a charade within the human race, whose mind drifts to a bond he shares with a woman he hasn’t met — at least, not in this lifetime.

Apart, the two are safe but live unfulfilled lives.

Together, they’ll become prey to rival packs just as they have been for hundreds of years.

When their worlds collide, and not for the first time, instinct takes over. Dreams become reality. Futures are uncertain. To keep history from repeating itself, Sean must teach Jem about his heritage, convince her of her role, and win her love.

Can Jem accept her destiny before it’s too late, or is her inner wolf buried too deep to save her future with Sean?

You can add it to your Goodreads by clicking on the cover art above.

Unnatural (Holloway Pack, #4)

Good Reads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/21398526-unnatural?from_search=true

Whoo hoo! The book is out of it’s cage, ya’ll!

I love this cover. So powerful! 

Blurb:

Unnatural. One word to sum up werewolf Kyle Larsen—his mood swings, abnormal body, and choice of female.

The first two, he blames on the vampire venom.
The third, though? No, feline shifter Brook Nicholls was all his doing—a female of whom the pack will never approve.

As part of the Coalition, an organisation with even stricter rules than the pack and a rigidly warped sense of responsibility, Brook comes with a whole lot of opposition of her own.

No wonder the two of them keep their relationship secret for as long as they can.

Now, distanced from his family by his own indiscretions, Kyle’s left to fight battles he’s unsure how to win—some of them even against his own pack.

Is one woman really so important that he’s willing to defy his Alpha for her?

If his heart has any say in the matter, the answer will be yes.

by Danielle E. Shipley

Release Date: March 17, 2014

Target Reader: Adult

Keywords: Fiction

Blurb:

For a muse like Lucianíel, one story’s end is another’s beginning.  In the wake of his author’s sudden death, Luc takes ownership of her surviving creations—four fantastical characters with tales yet to be told—saving them from unwritten lives crumbling around them and giving them a second chance at a literary future.  Luc finds that chance in the unsuspecting mind of Annabelle Iole Gray, a quirky teen with her head in the clouds, nose in a book, and imagination ripe for a brilliant muse’s inspiration.  Or so he hopes.  Neither Luc nor Annabelle, however, realize all they’ve undertaken. Even with a to-write list including accounts of a shape-shifting cat creature, gentle knight-in-training, vigilante skater girl, and a mystery boy smothering in unspoken fear, the most remarkable saga created between author and muse just may turn out to be one stranger than fiction.  Their own.

INSPIRED Guest Post for Julie Reece: My favorite type of hero and why

By Danielle E. Shipley

 

When asked about my favorite type of hero, my first instinct is to answer, “Good heroes! Through-and-through good. Heart-of-gold good.” My reflexive desire is for a black-and-white world where heroes are heroes, villains are villains, what you see is what you get, and everyone takes sides accordingly.

 

But that’s only what part of me wants. Meanwhile, on the other side of my brain, there exists a craving for complexity and bothersome shades of gray. And I think that must be the side in charge of picking my favorite heroes, because just look at the favorites of my childhood:

 

Disney’s Aladdin, a thief and a liar. Sherlock Holmes, never averse to breaking and entering, or to compromising his health with substance abuse. Bugs Bunny, who rains Acme dynamite and grand pianos upon any poor fool who dares to cross him. Perfect role models? Yeah, no, not quite.

 

What is it, then, that draws me to a hero? That makes me love and embrace them, despite any glaring shortcomings? I value a clever hero. A daring hero. My apologies to the black-and-white ethical side of my brain, but I really love a thief. But not just any kind of petty crook will do. My top choice is a Robin Hood of a hero – the kind who bends the rules when he views them as too broken to follow. Someone who would rather do wrong for the right reasons than right for the wrong ones. Someone who cares enough about people – even strangers – to take risks to make their lives better, and who maybe even has a bit of fun with the danger while he’s at it.

 

I still prefer them to have that golden goodness at the core of them, too, but who knows? Maybe a little mischief or a “bad boy” streak mixed in just makes the golden bits shine all the brighter for me. What makes a hero shine brightest for you?

About this author:

Danielle E. Shipley’s first novelettes told the everyday misadventures of wacky kids like herself. …Or so she thought. Unbeknownst to them all, half of her characters were actually closeted elves, dwarves, fairies, or some combination thereof. When it all came to light, Danielle did the sensible thing: Packed up and moved to Fantasy Land, where daily rent is the low, low price of her heart, soul, blood, sweat, tears, firstborn child, sanity, and words; lots of them. She’s also been known to spend short bursts of time in the real-life Chicago area with the parents who home schooled her and the two little sisters who keep her humble. When she’s not living the highs and lows of writing young adult novels, she’s probably blogging about it.

Caged by J.A. Belfield Blog Tour and Giveaway!

Okay, wow on this cover!

Blurb:

If the meek can become deadly, the strongest can be weak.

For Ethan Holloway, his mission to find a missing werewolf should be simple. Crack a few heads, bust a few chops and the solution always reveals itself. Always.

Not this time.

Ethan’s reputation precedes him, and because it does, someone is ready. Waiting. Unbeknownst to Ethan, he’s about to go down. Hard. Against a foe he never suspected and in a world he never imagined could be real.

What awaits Ethan is a fight not only for his reputation, but also his pack, his female, and his life. If he survives, damage control will become priority number one.

If he survives.

Because even Ethan’s not sure he’s strong enough to take on an entire race all by himself.

Especially one hell bent on exposing who and what he is in the name of sport.

Excerpt:

“… from the Shropshire area. Following Carly McDowd’s disappearance on the fourth, and Andrew Doherty’s on the seventh, this is the third incident this month …”

I turned from the square-jawed newswoman on TV to Dad, where he sat in his corner armchair.

His attention remained on the screen, a frown across his brow.

“… the duo of friends were first reported missing late last night by their parents, after they discovered neither of the teenagers …” The newscaster’s voice infiltrated once more.

Images of a couple of lads flashed side by side on the screen. The one on the left had the appearance of any late teen, with shaggy overgrown hair and the twinkle of mischief in his expression.

From the other image, brilliant blue eyes stared out at me from beneath a shock of pale blond curls.

“Oh, shit!” I pushed to my feet, took a step forward. “That’s …”

Nineteen year old Gabriel Lewis was believed by his mother to be staying at Colum Delaney’s since Friday evening, whilst Colum’s parents …”

Dad stood, his fingers retracting his mobile from his jeans pocket as I worked my own out. He paused, nodded to me. “Go on. You make the call, Ethan.”

Shelley Lewis’s number had been saved in my phone book since the beginning of the year, right after we met for the first time. I hit dial and paced to the window. September sunshine, of the early morning variety, blinded me as my phone rang.

It took only a few trills for her to answer. “Ethan?” Her voice held hope, as well as a heavy weariness and the thickness of tears.

“Is it true?” I’d promised to support her—a lone parent, a female no less, raising a werewolf son with no guidance. So far, I’d delivered on that promise.

The sob hitting my ear gave confirmation enough. “Oh, Ethan.”

“Hold tight, Shelley. I’m on my way.”

“I’ll come with you,” Dad said, as I hung up and spun to him. “Shout Sean, too—in case we need to do any scouting. I think I heard him stir upstairs.”

“What about Connor’s lot?” The Larsen’s made up the other half of our eight-wolf pack, but lived separately to us on the south side of the forest.

Dad shook his head. “I’ll update Connor whilst you deal with Sean—”

“And Jem?” I asked with a lifted eyebrow.

Dad’s lips twitched, but he continued as though he hadn’t noticed my reference to his buck-passing. “Just the three of us will go. Connor and his boys can spend the morning here and stay close to Jem and your mother unless we need them.”

My Review:

In my opinion, each of Julie Belfield’s books has gotten stronger. That’s rare praise coming from me as often I find the second, and especially the third, book weaker in some series. Not so with Caged. I won’t say I liked it better than Blue Moon. I LOVED that story, but this one is so different it’s hard to compare. There is plenty of action and suspense in this third installment, but unlike its predecessor, told from Jem’s point of view, this one takes the POV of Ethan Holloway, and naturally reflects his intense (glorious) personality.

I love Belfield’s take on the world of werewolf shifters living among us. There’s never a dull moment. The pace flies as the author throws every obstacle she can at this poor hero. You’ll be flipping pages to see what happens to Ethan next. I was rooting for (and wondering if he could) save his own life, rescue other pack members and maybe even win the heart of a girl in the end.

Can any girl resist Ethan? I think not.

Read this one!!!
