Latest Event Updates
These three upcoming titles are a must read for any Lycan fan.
"A Certain Wolfish Charm"- April 2010
Lilly has had it! She has been seeking the help of her nephew’s guardian and all he does is send some bloody money! She’s worried about the drastic changes in her nephew and is desperate for some help. Duke of Blackmoor, Simon Westfield, has little time to deal with his guardian’s aunt. He has sent her money, time and time again! What more does she want? With every moon waxing, Simon becomes more unpredictable as does every Lycan and he has little time to deal with the nuisance!
"Tall, Dark, and Wolfish"- May 2010
Ben Westfield is torn from events that have recently left him without the ability to change. While most may think this would be a blessing, to lycans it is pure torture. Ben runs to Scotland in search of a witch who can heal him and put him to rights. What he finds is a little more than he can handle. Not one witch but five and each willing to do battle to keep him from the one person who can make him whole again.
"The Wolf Next Door" June 2010
Prisca has lived next to the Westfields her whole life. Her brothers and the Westfield boys were as close as family. Now grown, Prisca, knows all too well how someone could have a broken heart. She loved William and thought William loved her. But as they grew closer William suddenly changed and threw himself into a lifestyle of debauchery and scandal, leaving Prisca to mend her own heart. Her brothers, however, had different plans for the couple. It’s high time for Prisca to marry, and who better to be her husband than their close friend William? Can Prisca forgive Will for breaking her heart or will she accept the advances of a visiting stranger who is more dangerous than anyone could have imagined?
These three novels delve into the lives of three brothers who are Lycans just outside of London. What I love about these stories, is the fact that the males are strong alpha males and the women are strong and independent. No simpering women looking for a man to rescue them from a fate worse than death (like marrying someone they find horribly ill suited for them.) In each story a brother fights for control over his baser instincts. As the moon waxes, those instincts become harder and harder to control.
My only criticism is toward the end of the 2nd and 3rd novels I found myself thinking that the story should have ended a few chapters before. I also found that the males some times fell out of there alpha character to suit the story. But overall the books were enjoyable.
I quickly read them in a week and if you like historical novels and lycans, give these a try! You won’t be disappointed!
Since I have written that review another thing has come up. I had mentioned that I can read PDF’s on my Kindle and most likely will do so, but the way the Kindle is set up; you cannot change the font size on a PDF document on the Kindle. This means, if the font size of the PDF is small it will be small on the Kindle. There is a way to get around this and it is to read the book/document in landscape format instead of portrait. I don’t think this will hender me from using the Kindle to read these books, I like having the big screen to read on. I think I stated on my blog that the price of both readers is no walk in the park (the Kindle DX is around $480 and the Sony is $299.99 (or rounded off to an even $300), but if you are an avid reader you will pay for this each after buying a few hardback new releases. They are soooooo worth it and once you start reading in electronic ink, it becomes really difficult to go back to paper; it’s addicting (in a good way).
Now, about this new book. It is definitely different than her previous hunter novels. While most of her hunter novels in the past have focused on shifting, relationships and romance(cause duh, these are romances!) this novel has a definite focus on the suspense/mystery aspect of it.
Here is a small rundown on the plot:
Duke is a hunter betrayed by the woman he loves. Ana is a psychic who is need of the hunter she betrayed. Ana has no choice but to seek help when she finds herself being haunted by a local murder victim. Unfortunately, the desperate spirit is not the only victim….as sparks fly between psychic and hunter, neither can shake the spirit that demands their help. As clues pour in, no one could have guessed the evil that was living nearby.
I absolutely love serial killers, thrillers, and a good naughty romance (not in that order, of course!). I found this title to be a great combination of all three! I think Shiloh did an excellent job of suspending the reader to the very end.
