Thanks so much to Jennifer for letting me guest blog with her today!
During my younger years, my parents were pretty strict about what my sister and I watched. So it’s no wonder that I ‘rebelled’, wanting to get my hands on anything I knew would be deemed inappropriate by my parents. This included anything to do with ‘monsters’ like vampires or werewolves. Thus began my love affair with all things ‘different’. I always felt bad that just because a being was different, they were deemed monsters. It just didn’t seem fair.
And werewolves or wolves have often gotten a bad rap. Look at Little Red Riding Hood or The Three Little Pigs. Bad wolves! Luckily the attitude toward paranormal beings, werewolves included, has changed over the years. There’s something so sexy about a man in touch with his more primal, animal side. With shifters, it’s easy to capitalize on that sexiness. If I had to choose my favorite werewolf (or lycan) from the big screen I’d go with Lucian (played by Michael Sheen) from the Underworld series. If you haven’t seen the movies, please don’t read on because I’m about to give some spoilers. Poor guy was a slave to vampires from the day he was born and then when his affair with Sonja, a vampire of royal blood was discovered, he had to watch her die knowing she carried his unborn child. So cruel! But he loved his ‘people’ and looked at the big picture when it came to them. He was a great leader. And for all the centuries he was alive after Sonja’s death, he never forgot her. Sexy. Lycan.
In my upcoming Moon Shifter series from Signet, the majority of my characters are lupine shifters (wolf) and all the males are pretty damn sexy. Connor, the hero and Alpha of his pack, knows what he wants in life (or maybe I should say who) and he’s not afraid to after her. Writing this series has been so much fun and I’m very excited that Alpha Instinct is finally here (it releases in a couple days!).
So what about you? What do you like about shifters? Two readers who comment on the blog will be randomly selected to win a print copy of Alpha Instinct (US & Canada eligible only). Good luck and thanks so much for stopping by!
Alpha Instinct official blurb:
Fear has a scent. So does desire…Ana Cordona has been a strong leader for the lupine shifters who survived after all the males and most of the females in her pack were mysteriously poisoned. As tough as she is, with no Alpha male, the pack is vulnerable to the devious shifter Taggart, who wants to claim both their ranch and Ana as his own. When Connor Armstrong comes back into her life, promising protection, it’s almost enough to make Ana forget how he walked out on her before—and reluctantly accept his offer to mate.The minute Connor sees Ana again, it reawakens a raw hunger. He must have her for his bondmate—his wolf cries out for it. But his human side knows he must proceed with caution because of their complicated past. If he is to truly have her body and soul, he must go beyond his burning desire and win back her heart. Whatever it takes, he is determined not to leave her side again.But Taggart and his rival pack are not their only enemies. A human element in town is targeting shifters. Their plan not only threatens Ana and Connor’s future, but the lives of the entire pack…
A little about me: I’ve been reading romance since a young age—ever since I discovered my mom’s hidden stash. Luckily the addiction stayed with me into adulthood. I write paranormal romance and sexy romantic suspense for Carina Press, Harlequin Nocturne, and NAL/Signet Eclipse.
