Paranormal is back! Not that it ever really went away, but like everything else in romance-land, trends glut the market. For a while, vampires were everywhere. You couldn’t open a romance without bumping into a demon, a dragon, or a ghost. It became difficult to find regular contemporary romances, and only the historicals had just humans in the mix.
Then the tides changed. Contemporary began sweeping back in. Hello Fifty Shades of popularity! Erotic and mainstream contemporary were back. In 2014 in particular, this was good news to me as I had a brand new series I’d released. It was a lot of fun, but I had to adhere to rules. Just because my hero wanted to be right next to the heroine didn’t mean he could teleport there or dematerialize into a bat and fly there. But the challenges involved in sticking to the rules were exciting. So I’ve been writing contemporary a lot lately.
Then the opportunity to revisit a favorite group of shapeshifters came my way. Paranormal romance is once again building steam, and I couldn’t be happier. The Mark of Lycos series features shapeshifters who exist on the fringe of everyday society. I didn’t want them mingling with regular people in the city. They live in the Great Forest in Alaska. They deal with sorcery, demons who aren’t (as a species) evil, and other shapeshifters. The spirits in their world shape how the characters interact.
The books have added content now, and they’ve been re-edited and given some stand-out covers. Take a look…
Now for an insight into book one, ENEMY RED.
ENEMY RED releases March 15th 2016. With shows like Teen Wolf, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Ghost Hunters, and now Lucifer on television, I think it’s obvious that viewers are interested in things that go bump in the night. So what better time than to bring my shapeshifters and demons back out to play?
In Enemy Red, an alpha wolf and enemy wolf butt heads while trying to figure out how to confront an evil bent on destroying the alpha and all she holds dear. But the enemy wolf isn’t just any wolf—Fenris wears the Mark of Lycos, a symbol of great power. Fenris is unique, a creature of imbued power and the strength of spirit, mind and body only found in a werewolf. The Wolf in the Forest, the great spirit over all shapeshifting wolves, has granted Fenris the ability to do great things. But he must have the courage to take on the responsibility that is his destiny.
Gotta love that destiny stuff, hmm? *big grin* Enjoy your paranormal, and check out ENEMY RED, coming March 15th from Totally Bound Publishing.
