Rights Back!

I got the rights back from Harlequin for most of the books in my Unbound series based on Norse mythology! (Nocturnes/Paranormal Romances) To celebrate, I’m posting the prologue from Guardian’s Keep. :) Guardian’s Keep by Lori Devoti (coming soon in ebook) The wind howled and leaves slapped against branches. The smell of damp earth and animals panicked by what was roaming the forest tonight was everywhere. Fenrir, the cause of their fear, strode on. What was his had been taken, and he would stop at nothing to save it. “Garm,” a voice boomed. Fenrir ground to a halt, the length of chain he held knocking against his knee at his sudden stop. He gripped the links more firmly in his fist, readied himself to use the makeshift weapon when his hidden opponent decided to show himself. “Let him go,” he called out, the chain heavy and hot in his hand, his heartbeat slowing as he let his senses travel over the surrounding woods, searching for those who had stolen what was his. “Will you come?” the voice asked again. “Let me see him.” A demand this time. Fenrir didn’t believe in playing meek, didn’t know how. “If we do, and he’s safe, you’ll come with us?” Fenrir hesitated, his mind going back to Aesa, her face pale, drawn, worried. If he went with them, would he see her again? But.. .his fist tightened around the chain.. .if he didn’t, if they went through with their threats? That would kill her…kill him, too. Lifting his chin, he replied, “I’ll come.” A second chain was looped around his neck, pulled tight—not cruelly, just enough to remind him that it was there, that he was no longer free. His captor stepped in front of him—Tyr, one of the lesser gods, sent to do the bidding of those more powerful but also more...

Full Moon of Werewolves: The wrap up!

Full Moon of Werewolves Schedule This is it, the last day of a Full Moon of Werewolves. Big thanks to all the bloggers and all the blog visitors! It has been tons of fun and very educational. This is your last post to comment on for an entry for the $100 worth of fab werewolf books. To make it interesting, let’s talk werewolf books a bit. What was your first? Do you remember? The one that stands out in my mind is Eileen Wilks’ Tempting Danger. This is when werewolves were still pretty new in romance and I loved it. The next werewolf book I remember really finding fresh and reminding me of all that wolfy goodness was Kelley Armstrong’s Bitten. Seriously, a great read. What is about werewolves we love? Is it the primal animal thing? The pack mentality…the alpha aspect? What attracts you to them? And, now five years after Eileen’s book came out, do you still love werewolves? Are you feeling the itch to move to new paranormal creatures, away from paranormals all together, or is your love still as strong? If you could describe your perfect werewolf book, what would it be? What would the hero be like? Would it be contemporary or historical? Would the heroine be a shifter too, would it be a “destined mate” book or just good old fashioned hormones helping along lasting love? What? Tell all you want and love for one last chance to win! Last day to enter Saturday, April 25th at midnight central U.S. time. Buy Lori’s books: Shop Indie Bookstores Or...

Full Moon of Werewolves: There’s a werewolf born every minute by Lori Handeland

Full Moon of Werewolves Schedule About today’s guest: Lori Handeland Lori Handeland has written over forty novels, novellas and short stories in several genres–historical, contemporary, series and paranormal romance, as well as urban fantasy–for such publishers as: Dorchester, Kensington, Harlequin, St. Martin’s Press, Harper-Collins and Simon and Schuster. She is a New York Times, USA Today, Waldenbooks and Bookscan Bestselling Author and the recipient of many industry awards, including two RITA Awards from Romance Writers of America. Or at least one in every culture. Did you know that every culture has a shapeshifter legend, which is what makes it so fun and fascinating for me to mine them all for my books? I like to twist and turn actual legends, combine them with others, and add a little of my own imagination to come up with a villain, or sometimes a hero or heroine. For instance, in Hunter’s Moon, the second book in my Nightcreature series, I used the Ojibwe legend of the Weendigo–a shapeshifter with an insatiable hunger for human flesh. The more it eats, the larger it becomes and the more it needs to eat. In Dark Moon I borrowed the Ojibwe legend of the Witchie Wolves. The legend states that a spirit animal–half wolf/half man protects the graves of Ojibwe warriors from desecration. When I moved the series to New Orleans I studied the legends of the people there–the French, the Spanish, the Cajun and the Africans. In Crescent Moon, I made use of the French legend of the loup-garou, twisting it a bit to fit into the Cajun tradition found all over New Orleans. In my legend a loup-garou is cursed not bitten, which creates some interesting issues. In the next book, Midnight Moon, due to the devastation in New Orleans after Katrina, I moved the setting to Haiti and made use of the rich...

Kate Douglas, here…I’ve been traveling for the past few weeks and haven’t really had time to prepare anything, so I’ve asked Anton Cheval, the Chanku wizard and uber-alpha of my Kensington Aphrodisia Wolf Tales series, to appear in my place. Many of you know Anton—he’s in almost all of the fourteen Wolf Tales and Sexy Beast books released so far, including a role in the Wild Nights anthology from September 2006, so he’s been around since the beginning and can answer any questions you might have. Without further adieu, please welcome Anton Cheval~~ Thank you, Ms. Douglas, for your introduction. Now please get back to work on Wolf Tales X…or is that going to be 10? I heard they might change the numbering…no matter—¬just write it. Hello. I’m not exactly certain why Ms. Devoti thought to include us in her blog event. It is, after all, dedicated to werewolves. While I am more than capable of shifting from human to wolf, I am a shapeshifter, not a werewolf, dependant upon the phases of the moon...
