First of all, a big thank you to Bitten by Books for hosting my release party for my e-novella, Shadow Touch. Today I’m giving away a $100 gift card to either Amazon or B&N (winner’s choice), signed copies of Shadow Bound, Shadow Fall, AND an ARC of my upcoming release, Shadowman (out Sept 6). And to an additional five winners, I’ll give signed copies of Shadow Bound and Shadow Fall. Yeah!
Shadow Touch (Kensington Zebra) is a stand-alone story set in my Shadow series world. Its heroine is Ellie Russo, who has a big problem—her shadow. It ought to be attached to her; instead it has a life of its own. And her dark mirror image is a wild thing, acting only on instinct, passion, and whims.
Ellie journeys to the Segue Institute, a paranormal research center, to ask for help. Her shadow is getting stronger, even dangerous. Something needs to be done, and soon. Maybe it’s already too late.
Dr. Cameron Kalamos has devoted himself to the study of Shadow, but nothing could prepare him for the mischief and mayhem of a soul split in two. He admires brave and enduring Ellie, just as he fights his attraction to her primal shadow.
Who will give in first: the man struggling to unite two halves of one fascinating female; the shadow fighting for freedom to experience the thrill of every emotion; or the woman who is about to discover her own deepest desires?
So here are my questions for you:
What are your favorite heroes or heroines that struggle with a dark side of their own? How do you feel
that aspect adds/detracts from them as a character or from the story as a whole?
Shadow Touch is available online June 1 (that’s today!):
