Okay folks, last post for the day featuring those furry, fanged, sometimes feathery and oh,so sexy creatures we call shifters! I'd like to welcome the lovely Katie Reus back to RBtWBC, fellow Floridian and author of several fabulous romantic suspense novels, erotic romantic suspense and paranormal romances!
October quite possibly might be my favorite month (it’s a tie with December because come on, presents rock). There’s so much Halloween awesomeness and spookiness that abounds right now and I’m totally soaking it all in. The supernatural and paranormal are celebrated and since I love both those things, this is the perfect month to talk about supernatural creatures of myth and legend… Vampires, witches, and shifters, oh my! How to choose a favorite?
While it’s hard to pick a favorite supernatural creature when it comes down to it shifters totally own me. There’s something so sexy about a shifter hero, whether it’s a wolf or panther or jaguar, doesn’t matter much to me. I think it’s because they’re more in touch with their animal side. And there’s nothing hotter than a (fictional) guy who’s all possessive and protective of his woman and doesn’t care if the world knows it. Because seriously, women want a guy who’s not afraid to protect her or let everyone else know she’s taken. And the ability to change into an animal is pretty freaking cool to me. So it’s probably no surprise the hero in Destined Mate, my recent release from Harlequin Nocturne Cravings is an Alpha shifter who knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to go after it.
So what’s Destined Mate about?
Almost a century ago Angela was turned into a vampire against her will so she ran from her werewolf lover rather than face his disdain for her kind. After her best friend turns up missing, she has no choice but to follow the trail straight into a den of wolves and the arms of the man she fears most.
The last person Knox expected to invade his land was Angela. For so many years he’s thought about what he’d do to her when he finally got her where he wanted. When her tribe leader comes searching for her, determined to drag her home, Knox risks everything to finally claim her.
Warning: You can expect a red-hot shower scene, a smartass heroine who isn’t afraid to use her teeth and an alpha wolf who’s willing to fight anyone and anything to keep his vampire lover by his side.
A little about me: I’ve been reading romance since I discovered my mom’s hidden stash at a young age and the addiction stayed with me into adulthood. I write dark paranormal romance and sexy romantic suspense. I write for Carina Press, Harlequin Nocturne, and in early 2012 the first book in my paranormal series will release from NAL/Signet Eclipse.
