Natural Evil Release Day Giveaway-Please RT

This month is the first time I have ever had two releases in one month!  Can you believe it?

I am celebrating the March 20th release of my e-novella Natural Evil (Samhain Publishing) by doing the same thing that I did on the release day of Oracle’s Moon.

I’m giving away 5 e-ARCs of Natural Evil on March 20th, and one of those 5 people will also receive a 15 minute phone visit with me (if they would like). This giveaway is international, and I am also willing for the phone call to be international, but only if you have the ability to Skype.

Comment here to enter this contest, and don’t forget to include your email address!!  I’ll announce the five winners–and the phone call winner!– on March 20th at 12 noon, Mountain Time Zone  Good luck, and happy reading!

Book Title: Natural Evil

Series Name: A Story of the Elder Races

Series Number: 2

Length: 30,000 (accurate word count to follow post edits)


Attempted Murder. Passion. Betrayal. It’s a dog-eat-dog world.


Claudia Hunter is on a road trip through the Nevada desert when she sees the body of a dog on the side of the highway. Pulling over to investigate, she quickly determines that the enormous animal is clinging to life. While working to save him with the help of the local vet, Claudia realizes there’s something about the creature that seems more. Other. Wyr. Which makes this case of animal cruelty attempted murder.

Too injured to shape shift, Luis Alvaraz is reluctant to tell Claudia what he knows about his attack, afraid it will only make her a target. But the sheriff is corrupt, and his attackers know Luis is alive and vulnerable. To make matters worse, a sandstorm is sweeping into town, and if they’re going to survive the night, Luis will have to place all his trust in Claudia.

Warning: Take a gorgeous man temporarily stuck in the dog house, add a strong, take-no-prisoners woman, mix in encroaching enemies and a raging sandstorm and stir to combine. Enjoy with a freshly opened can of whoop-ass.

    my email:

    (i’m a friend/fan at Goodreads)

  54. Hazel says:

    I’m looking forward to this short story. I am already on my second read through of Oracle’s Moon and I have read all of the other books in the series twice as well, whilst I was (not so) patiently waiting for Oracle’s Moon to arrive. I didn’t enter the give away for that one because I had already pre-ordered it but would be glad to win a copy of Natural Evil, it would save me some pennies. 🙂
    My email address is smile3090(at)hotmail(dot)com.
    P.S. I love that you check in on characters from previous books, it’s good to see that Pia and Dragos are doing alright, though poor Dragos seems to have a lot on his plate and if you are writing a book about Aryal perhaps even more so.
    P.P.S. I really enjoyed your guest appearance over at thank you.

  55. kerry sauer says:

  59. Robin Greene says:

    I’m already rereading Oracle’s Moon and can’t wait until the release of Natural Evil! My brother stole (borrowed) my pre-ordered copy of Oracle’s Moon the day that I received it and didn’t give it back until he finished it 2 days later. I was more than a little annoyed.

  80. SharonS says:

    what a great idea for a prize 🙂 your cover is delicious 😉 thanks for the chance

  81. Tadrith Rashkae says:

    I love your books. I have a very low tolerance for bad writing and a very voracious appetite for good writing so it is hard for me to find books. I picked up Dragon Bound because I like Dragons and I figured I’d give it a try and was floored by how consistent your portrayal of the nonhuman races was with emphases on the nonhuman. I now own all of your books and will be preordering both Natural Evil and Lord’s Fall as soon as I get paid. Thank you for writing these.

  82. Sandy says:

    Cannot wait…have all of your books…

  83. Sandy Lion says:

  88. Tina L. says:

    Have only been able to get my hands on Dragon Bound and LOVED it!!! Even as I’m reading other books, I find Dragos and Pia stealing into my thoughts. I keep wondering what happens next!!

  89. Jo Ann Roche says:

    Where can I buy natural evil? Amazon hasen’t got it listed yet. kindle……….

    I am very excited for the release of “Natural Evil.” I first found out about Dragon Bound through Eloisa James’ “Reading Romance” column at (always a big hit for me), and I swear in between the day I picked it up and the day Storm’s Heart was released, I must have read Dragon Bound 4 or 5 times! It gives me such pleasure that the Elder Races series is continuing, and has novellas as well. ^_^
