Guest Post & Giveaway with author Leia Shaw

Today I would like to introduce the very sweet author of Destiny Divided, Leia Shaw.  You can find my review on her wonderful novel here. 
I'm very excited that she graciously agreed to visit PRA for a guest post and giveaway, so without further ado....

Remember in grammar school the teacher could write a little note under your grades on your report card about your performance in class? Well, my grades were decent but underneath it always said, "does not follow directions" and "a daydreamer." Twenty five years later - and a full grown adult (mostly) - not much has changed. Only I traded unicorns and rainbows for vampires and sorcerers (and werewolves and witches and oracles and fey and well, you get the point). 

Currently I'm a stay-at-home mom of two young children and I'm moonlighting as a writer. A year or so ago, after becoming so overwhelmed with the responsibility of caring for my special needs' son, I realized I'd forgotten how to have fun. Gasp! I'd always been the clown, the fun-loving free spirit, the prankster. But I'd turned into a stressed out, sleep deprived, mom zombie complete with snot stained sweats (which I've since retired.). 

In an attempt to escape my world of cartoons, sippy cups, and potty training, I started reading fiction. Only fiction. Stories with a strong fantasy element that took me as far away as possible from the truth of my real life. That's not to say that real life wasn't great. It was. But I just needed to get away now and then. Mostly between the hours of 8am and 5pm. 

Back in high school I had fallen in lust with vampires (and Brad Pitt) when a little movie called "Interview with a Vampire" came out. This was long before Twilight and Vampire Diaries and when it was cool to have a thing for fangs. I may have a dark twisted mind but, like most women, I'm a sucker for a good love story. And so, sticking with my fang fetish, I started reading paranormal romance novels. A LOT of them. Kresley Cole, Gena Showalter, Jeanine Frost, Larissa Ione, just to name a few. It was my first experience with any romance novels. Holy Mother and hello libido! Thus began my addiction to paranormal romance. 

Then it occurred to me one day (my very own Aha! moment) to put my writing talent, my crazy imagination, and what little time I did have, to good use. And I started writing my first book. Three months later I scrapped it, realizing it didn't fit well enough into any one genre. 

The story for Destiny Divided came to me in a dream. A sorceress raised in foster care with a serious anger problem and out of control powers meets the prim and proper, yet dangerous, sorcerer who tries to train her. They hate each other at first and then...well, I'll let you read it to find out. The Shadows of Destiny series takes place in modern times where the supernatural live among us. Some of them work hard to blend into human society. Many of them live in isolated communities within their own race where they have their own government, rules, and agendas. 

What I love in a book is a strong, alpha male with a loving, gentle side, and a kick-ass female who can keep him on his toes. Humor plays a big part in my books and characters as well. They say sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. But I firmly believe that humor doesn't have to be smart to be funny. Just look at The Simpsons. 

What might be different about my stories is that I'm not afraid to let my heroines get their asses kicked from time to time. The supernatural world is a bloody one so they have to toughen up to survive. And there's nothing sexier than a girl who can take a hit, get back up, then go all Chuck Norris on some ass. 

I chose to make the heroines in the first two books of the series having grown up in foster care. It's a passion of mine, since both my kids are adopted from foster care. I find that trauma can both strengthen and weaken a person, and it's the people around them that help shape what perseveres. That's why you'll see my characters morph from broken individuals into healing, thriving warriors. And it isn't the brave, tough men that "fix" them, it's the unconditional love. 

But mostly, if you're looking for a light, fun read with sexy, funny characters and a lot of bloody action...well...that's me. My second book is due out in June 2011 and I have at least five more planned in this series (my brain runs away without me sometimes). Each is the love story of at least one spin-off character from the previous book. A Destiny United is Marcelo's story (a vampire you'll meet at the end of the first book). You can read an excerpt from both books on my website. Destiny Divided is available for the Kindle on Amazon and on Smashwords for every other e-book format (you can also read it on your computer on Smashwords). Thanks for having me and I hope you enjoy my book!

Destiny Divided
Amazon / Smashwords

After fleeing her native city — and nightmares of a traumatic childhood — Sage Peterson meets the overbearing, pretentious, yet haunted Professor Elias. He’s the only one who knows about her mysterious powers, which seem to be spiraling out of control. When he convinces her to train with him, she finds herself thrust into a five hundred year war and on the run from vampires, werewolves, and even worse — her budding feelings for James Elias.
James had been living a dull and empty existence for the past century and a half. When a fiery half-sorceress, half-witch with a stubborn streak and sharp wit enters his life, he sees her only as a potential weapon to use against his greatest enemy. But when he discovers the vulnerable woman beneath the angry mask, instinct screams to keep her safe. To protect and provide. And to claim her as his.
But will it be too late? As passion and lust ignite between them, vengeance is slipping away. And when Sage is confronted with fulfilling an unexpected destiny, will she choose to trust James with her heart?

A Destiny United 
(June 2011)
Erin Bolton knew all about the supernatural world that existed in the shadows of modern society. But she wanted no part of it. Fear and anxiety ruled her life and kept her in hiding. The only thing able to draw her out was alcohol. But seemingly overnight she finds herself in danger from a powerful group of sorcerers wanting to use her against her foster sister, the Queen of the Underworld. When her sister sends a dangerous vampire with a wicked seductive streak to keep her safe, Erin begins to wonder, who will keep her safe from him?
Marcelo has postponed the eight hundred year search for his wife to perform a small favor for his Queen. When the errand turns into a week long journey across the country toting a fragile female with anxiety and a budding alcohol problem, his life takes a turn for the unexpected. Especially when, on Erin’s twenty first birthday, he discovers there is much more to this girl than meets the eye. And now instinct claims she’s his. His mate. Meant to be with him, and only him, forever.
Can Marcelo give up his dream of reuniting with his lost wife to be with the girl his body cries out for? As war breaks out in the supernatural world, Erin is confronted with a destiny only she can fulfill. Can she conquer her deep-rooted fears and reconcile with the new identity fate has given her?

4 1/2 Loveys

I loved every single moment of Destiny Divided!
The author did an excellent job with world building, keeping it believable and exciting while her characters were sexy and interesting. Sage is a kick ass heroine with a snarky sense of humor I adored and James a yummy and protective sorcerer with a few secrets of his own. I loved watching both of them develop and grow as individuals and a couple. There is a great balance of action and romance in this captivating. Also, mucho sexual tension that leaves you hanging by a thread for quite some time but is well worth the wait. Some funny Twilight and Harry Potter references as well; there was even a ‘Luke, I am your father’ Star Wars moment.

This was such a fun and addicting read, I couldn’t put it down and held a serious grudge against my family when I actually had to take a break to fix them dinner!
The end had me salivating for more and I can’t wait to get my hands on A Destiny United, the next book in the series set to release this June.

So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valley’s pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt.

  • The clerk at the local bookstore asks you what he/she should read next
  • It’s Tuesday morning and you are loading your tot up with cookies, juice boxes and Dora so you can catch a quick nap on the couch because you were up all night reading the latest PNR release since it became available at 12:01am
  • You think zombies are sexy, as long as certain body parts remain intact!
  • When a new release comes out from your favorite series you have a series re-read
  • Your top five book boyfriends are either; winged, fanged or furred
  • You’re saving up your money for a Fever tattoo
  • Your main vocabulary includes words like “True?” and “What’s doing?”
  • Despite the popular belief of demons being evil and scary you know they are just like the rest of us; sensitive souls with big hearts that need to be loved
  • You’ve asked your significant other to read CH32, and if he refused you printed it out and snuck it in his briefcase

If any of the above applies to you, then you may be a paranormal romance addict!

Ebook, 46 pages
Published January 2011 by Red Sage
Elyn Castel spent 50 years as the slave of a vampire sociopath. Now, thanks to cyborg bodyguard Jarl “Blade” Bladin, Kruz is dead. But Blade is after Elyn now, and she has to do everything she can to get away from Blade. But that’s easier said than done…

3 Loveys

A touch of sci-fi, a dash of the paranormal and a good dose of erotic romance makes Blood and Steel a great quickie.
Elyn has finally escaped her tormentor of 50 years who raped, tortured and controlled her in every way. But now she is running from the cyborg that made that happen, who also happens to be the man she had to seduce for Kruz and lost his team because of.
Knight takes you on a fast ride into the future where cyber technology and the supernatural collide. Full of action, suspense, and blistering love scenes.
There was a good balance between plot and sex. I enjoyed the main characters, Elyn and Blade, the only problem I had was I couldn’t picture them in my head.
A fun, quick read!

Cover of the Week - March 21st, 2011

Sometimes I like to see a face on the cover of books but often times I enjoy imagining it myself, because the models on the front rarely are what I pictured a character as in my mind. I do so enjoy the covers with the bare-chested men and the drool worthy bodies though. They give good inspiration when imagining the character, LOL

Winter, a hybrid, has spent her life at war. A group of humans who are part demon, the hybrids, along with the lupines and nightwalkers, have dedicated their lives to defeating demons and protecting humanity. Yet, despite their united cause, the three groups share an uneasy alliance.
When hybrid military compounds come under attack from demon insurgents, Winter has no choice but to turn to the lupines and nightwalkers for assistance. It's a partnership based on necessity and she has no intention of letting down her guard with either group.
Marcus, the nightwalker Lord, has other plans. The immediate attraction between him and Winter promises a passion he can't ignore. To claim her as his own, he'll not only have to fight the demons who seem hell-bent on destroying her, but her own misconceptions about him and the nightwalker race. It's a battle he refuses to lose.

4 Loveys

An exciting adventure and romance that grabs you on the first page and never lets go. Winter joins the Order after her husband is killed by Demons, now a Hybrid, she uses her demon strength and abilities to dish out violence and revenge on all demon kind. But she faces more then just the demons outside her, she struggles with the one inside as well. The only way to stop the demons total ownership is to take a mate, but Winter is unwilling to risk her heart again. When Marcus comes to her rescue she doesn’t want nor need his help but this arrogant Nightwalker Lord refuses to back down until he possesses her; body, heart and soul. When the Demons start to organize though and it seems that a Hybrid rogue is behind the attacks Winter must accept help where she can get it. Can she resist the instant connection and intense heat between her and the Nightwalker? The sensual dance between these two is irresistible and full of passion. Not to mention incredibly hot! Kiss of Darkness is non-stop action with sub-plots involving two other couples masterfully woven into the main plot centering on Winter & Marcus. Several twist and turns will capture your attention and distract you from a few foreseen plot points.  I highly enjoyed this read from new-to-me author Loribelle Hunt, and look forward to the next installment in this series.

ISBN 1439170371 (ISBN13: 9781439170373)
Who is working the demon arts . . .                                                                     Was it her murdered father? Her fugitive brother? It has been seven years since Lady Sabrina Douglas cloistered herself with the Sisters of High Danu, but the questions remain. She is Other—a mixture of Fey and mortal—quietly using her powers to heal. That is, until she saves a half-drowned man, his soldier’s body a roadmap of scars, his fathomless eyes filled with heartbreaking loneliness. The inexplicable connection overwhelms her defenses, touching her heart, mind . . . and body. 
                                                                                                                   . . . and to what end?                                                                                                                                  A man with no memory, Daigh MacLir seeks his past, even as unknown threats fill him with monstrous rage and inhuman abilities. But as a desperate game of hunter and hunted is played out from ballrooms to bedrooms, what Daigh discovers is more chilling than anyone could possibly imagine. Defying death was only the first step in the task he has been set, and Sabrina his last hope. But dare he risk involving her? Daigh has been summoned to find an ancient king, and even the powers of love may not be enough to win the battle against the powers of darkness.

Cover of the Week - March 14th, 2011

Cover of the week is JR Ward's Lover Mine

This of course is John Matthew's story that was released in April of last year. And I have to say that I am loving the new cover styles. There is not that much of a difference to make you hate it if you have the whole series sitting on your shelf and you want them to match. But they are definitely more yummy! 

Two more weeks until Lover Unleashed is released!
