Taking a Bite Out of Romance

by Nancy Gideon

From late night “Creature Feature” to Thursday’s Must Watch “Supernatural,” I’m a sucker for creatures you can sink your teeth into. There’s nothing like a toothsome hero. Dark, tormented, powerful, and yet vulnerable in ways only the heroine (and the reader) can understand. No wonder my two long-running paranormal Touched by Midnight and By Moonlight series are built upon the mystique of my two favorites – vampires and shapeshifters. There’s something irresistible about a being so dangerous humbled by the one thing it can’t control – love.

My new release (as of yesterday!) celebrates the ultimate deadly, damaged and bad boy deliciousness of the shapeshifter House of Terriot, first introduced in the By Moonlight series and now featured in a four book spin-off starting with PRINCE OF HONOR. Enjoy a taste . . .



The hunter becomes the prey, a prisoner to his own desire . . .

Turow . . .

Strong, silent man of integrity content to serve his new king as a prince in the turbulent shape-shifter House of Terriot. A tracker and relentless hunter, he’s used to running trails alone until charged with returning a traitor to their mountain top home to face the unforgiving judgment of their clan. On the run with the bad girl he’s loved forever, the choice between duty and desire has never been more difficult . . . or deadly.

Could the bargain made to save their lives become reality?

Sylvia . . .

Manipulative schemer or victim caught between a mother’s ambition and a rogue prince’s lust for power? Trust is almost as foreign as the idea of love, but to save herself from certain death, she must risk both on the good man who deserves them . . . from someone worthy. Trapped by the only one who believes in her goodness, will she betray him and run for her life . . . or stay and destroy him with a long hidden truth?

Deadly, Damaged, and Delicious!
Brothers too H.o.T. to Handle!

While you’re sampling this non-caloric holiday treat, I’m busy finishing the final chapters of PRINCE OF POWER so it can howl before the end of the year.

Have a hauntingly wonderful Halloween!!

Excerpt

“Syl.”

Turow was the only one, other than Cale, who shortened her name that way. Before, it had always annoyed her, his familiarity stripping away the distance she preferred to keep between herself and others. Now, that rumbled intimacy did the opposite, drawing her closer, where outside influence held no sway.

“Syl, let me protect you. I swear, on my life, no one will ever harm you.”

She touched his face, his bold, beast face, reveling in the strength she’d always known dwelt within him. She touched his mouth, first with her fingertips, feeling the fierce cut of his teeth beneath the yielding softness of his lips, then with her own, slowly, prudently, until his tongue touched and mated with hers. A fierce vibration shook through him, harsh, hungry. Oh, he was exciting, barely restrained, dangerous and hers to control . . . if she could . . . but of course she could.
