Holiday Gifts of Love Blog Hop


First of all, thanks to Carrie Ann for holding such a fun blog hop! Be sure to stop by her site or check out the list below for more giveaways.

What do I love about December and holidays that come with it? To me, like my heroine Natalya, the holidays represent family. I have fond memories of traveling with my mother up to Iowa Falls, Iowa, to spend the holiday with extended family. I'd stay up late with my cousins and make Christmas sugar cookies--from scratch--with my aunt. Those were some good cookies too. I remember the layout of that house by heart. Where the tree always sat, what time we got up to open presents (too early), and even some of the presents I got. (I miss the My Little Pony I got the wings!)

To celebrate, I'd like for you to meet Natalya, my hoarding werewolf! I'm offering an eBook copy of my latest release (November 27th), Kept, from Ballantine Books to FIVE winners. If you haven't read Kept yet, I'll be more than happy the offer the winner a copy of the first book, Coveted.



About Kept

Fresh from defending her pack in battle, Natalya Stravinsky, a whip-smart werewolf with a lovable neurotic streak, wants a little rest and relaxation. Once an outcast, she’s now eager to rejoin the ranks of her New Jersey pack, and has even gotten a handle on her obsessive urge to hoard holiday ornaments. Yet Nat barely has time to revel in her progress before the next crisis comes howling at her door.

Nat’s father has suddenly gone missing, captured by the Russian werewolf mafia. And as Nat steps up to save her dad from a mob boss’s deadly game, two men step in to play another round for her heart: her gorgeous alpha ex-boyfriend, Thorn, and her new flame, the sweetly sensitive wizard Nick. With her life growing more harried by the minute, Nat must stay cool, calm, and collected...or else risk losing everything.

Order: Amazon · B & N · Book Depository · B-A-M · iBooks · Chapters · IndieBound · Powells

The Kept launch has gone fabulously and I wanted to participate in the Holiday Gifts of Love Blog Hop to offer another opportunity for readers to get their hands on Coveted or Kept.
