Book Blitz: Spellbound



Book Blitz:
Spellbound
by
Laura Greenwood

Apr 24th - May 1st









Eliza leaving broke both of their hearts, can they now fix them both?

Ethan was left heartbroken when his childhood sweetheart, Eliza, moved away at seventeen. Now, fate has brought them back together, and Ethan is determined to make her work for his forgiveness.

Eliza has always regretted leaving Ethan, even if she'd have had to hide her true nature from him if she'd stayed. But once they come together again, they learn things about one another that they'd never known before.

A standalone witch romance. This is a spin-off of the Paranormal Council series, which starts with The Dryad's Pawprint, available in the box set, In the Shadows.













I like to write whichever weird and wonderful tale comes into my head, which makes identifying the genre difficult even for me! My first series, Alventia, are novellas centred around Keira, aka Sleeping Beauty, and her Prince Philip, along with their allies Hansel and Gretel. It's a tale that very much told itself as I started to write it!

While I'm not writing, I work in Catering and am also an Assistant Brownie Guide Leader in the Midlands (UK). I like to bake and I love to read, and like with my writing, I read an eclectic mix of genres, and love every minute of it!

Release Day: The Necromancer's Prey


I can't believe the day is finally here! The Necromancer's Prey is now live on amazon, and hopefully Alden and Rory can make their way into your hearts! 

He's investigating her people - so why can't she resist him?

Rory's been an outcast her whole life, never feeling like she fit in with the other necromancers. With the Shifter Council investigating a rogue, her loyalties are torn between the people she doesn't belong to, and the shifter she can't seem to stop thinking about. 

When Alden saves Rory one night, the attraction between them becomes too difficult to ignore, and he finally starts to accept that she could be his mate.

COVER REVEAL: The Vampire's Bite

As you may have guessed by now...I'm not always the most patient of people...and as the pre-order is processing on Amazon as we speak, I have no problem sharing the amazing cover created by Ammonia Book Covers!


I'm super excited about this (despite the fact that book 3 isn't quite out yet!) But the main characters of The Vampire's Bite, Tony and Eden, will both have appeared in my books before! Tony, had one tiny paragraph at the beginning of The Dryad's Pawprint (bet you just thought he was there for the hell of it!) And Eden appears in the spin-off Spellbound, which releases a week today! 

In fact...I love hiding characters! And because I'm feeling like sharing, here are a few characters you've met before (or will meet soon in a couple of cases!) that will get their own romance...

  1. Nathalie - she's a member of the Shifter Council, and first appeared in The Dryad's Pawprint (but wasn't named until The Vixen's Bark).
  2. Drayce - read above, but substitute "she" for "he"
      
  3. Dana - a Shifter first mentioned in The Necromancer's Prey, but she'll be appearing in book 5 (Nathalie's book)
  4. Luke -  a witch, and best friend of Ethan, the male protagonist of Spellbound, Luke's around for a bit of the later action!
  5. Rhianna - a not quite human (but I can't reveal what yet!) who interacts with Alden in the opening chapters of The Necromancer's Prey. Her love interest was also alluded to in this book, but that one will probably make more sense in retrospect!
  6. Aella - a storm nymph, and Lia's (female protagonist in The Dryad's Pawprint) sister. Fun fact is that, despite not being on the Shifter Council (for obvious reasons) Aella is seen or mentioned in all of the books so far, including the spin-off. She'll also appear in The Vampire's Bite. Her love interest appears in a bonus chapter that I'll be sending exclusively to my mailing list (for now!)
Which means that actually...if you've read the four books that are currently/nearly out, then you've met a good portion of my characters! And...just in case you missed them...here are when my other characters were first introduced and mentioned! 

  1. Ari - a member of the Shifter Council (fox shifter), she was first seen in The Dryad's Pawprint, but became a main character in The Vixen's Bark.
  2. Bjorn - see above, but change "she" for "he"! And "fox shifter" for "bear shifter"
  3. Vic - a panther shifter, and Kem's brother. He's mentioned in The Dryad's Pawprint, but is getting his own story, His Lost Bear, which is currently an ongoing newsletter serial.
  4. Alden - a member of the Shifter Council, he was first seen in the Dryad's Pawprint, named in The Vixen's Bark, and became a main character in The Necromancer's Prey.
  5. Rory - a necromancer. She was first mentioned in The Vixen's Bark, and became a main character in The Necromancer's Prey.
  6. Eden - a vampire...or is she? First seen in Spellbound, becomes a main character in The Vampire's Bite.
  7. Tony - species depends on when and where in the series he is...First seen in The Dryad's Pawprint (briefly), then seen in Spellbound (briefly) and then becomes a main character in The Vampire's Bite.
Poor Kem (panther shifter) and Lia (dryad) from The Dryad's Pawprint, don't actually make the list because theirs is the first book! But they do appear in later stories. Kem makes an appearance in The Vixen's Bark, and they both appear in The Vampire's Bite. Same goes for Eliza and Ethan, the witches from Spellbound. They first appear in their own books, but they will appear in later books, most notably in Luke's story.

Honourable mentions go to Nita (His Lost Bear) and the love interests not mentioned (those of Nathalie & Drayce), as well as the characters in the book released in November...they will be introduced in advance, but just not yet! 

There may also be another spin off featuring Eliza's sister, Camille, and one of Ari's younger brothers! 


It's all super exciting to me! Though maybe not for everyone else!

Mythical Creatures with Monica La Porta

Dragons are my favorite mythical creatures. When I was a kid, I spent long hours imagining what it would be like to own a pet dragon and fly over the clouds, looking at the world from above. I’ve read countless books about dragons, and I never seem to have enough of those stories. From fantasy to steamy paranormal, if there is a dragon, I will read it. There is a sense of freedom I experience any time I find a good dragon novel that leaves me at peace with the world. The sheer power, and at the same time grace and elegance, of such creature when combined with a shifter is an explosive union, and it gives an author plenty of opportunities to write an epic story. When I introduced Dragon Sol in the Fifth Moon’s Tales, all I wanted was a badass sidekick for my werewolf, but Dragon’s character grew sentence by sentence, acquiring all the traits typical of its namesake: loyalty, strength, charm, wittiness. Soon, I couldn’t deny him the story he demanded any longer, and I finally gave in and started writing The Fifth Moon’s Dragon. In the process, I realized that I’ve never truly forgotten my dream as a child. I still want a pet dragon, especially if he comes in the shape of a hunk shape shifter. Monica La Porta is the Author of The Fifth Moon’s Dragon. You can find out more about Monica here!

Image Four (Blurb)

The High Lord of Solaria, Dragon Sol has recently returned to his planet to marry his two promised brides, but instead of savoring the pleasures of his wedding night, he finds himself fighting an enigmatic assassin sent to kill him. A skilled mercenary, Jade belongs to the Assassin Academy and lives for the thrill of the chase, but her latest mission goes awry since the moment she throws that first arrow at her intended target. Dragon proves to be Jade’s worthiest opponent yet, and what starts as any other mission becomes so much more, reversing the roles of hunter and prey. Before either of them can stop the inevitable, a deep connection take roots until their hearts and not their lives are at stakes.
