Donna Grant Wild Dream Cover Reveal - repost

Wild Dream Cover Reveal

On sale May 12, 2014


In this second rousing story in the Chiasson series, New York Times bestselling author, Donna Grant delivers a scorching tale about a woman running from her past and the only man who can save her.

Ava Ledet has had a hard time forgiving her father for walking out on her to hunt the supernatural. When Ava returns to the bayous to visit a friend and attempt to gain some closure, she’s confronted by the ghosts of her past. Unfortunately, that’s not the only darkness descending upon her. An evil unlike anything she’s ever encountered has focused on her, and she’s forced to put her life in the hands of a handsome hunter if she’s to live another day.
Gorgeous, loyal Lincoln Chiasson always has his brothers’ backs, and when his cousin from New Orleans needs his help after being cursed by a Voodoo priestess, he’s among the first to offer assistance. Until he sets eyes on Ava. After that, protecting her becomes more important than anything. Or anyone. But can he win her trust – and her love – while keeping her safe from his family?

The excerpt:

Lincoln wanted to forget the haunting beauty that was Ava Ledet, with her long, wavy auburn hair and unusual amber eyes. She walked fluidly, almost as if she glided upon air.

She had the look of a city girl, but there was something in the way that she gazed longingly at the bayou. Then there was her creamy skin, only accentuated by the black shirt that molded to her pert breasts. And, of course, her tight white pants.

Lincoln watched her help Olivia clear the table, and bit back a moan as she bent over and he got a view of her breasts when her collar dipped.

“She’s very pretty,” Beau said as he walked up and handed Lincoln a beer.


Pretty was like calling the Grand Canyon a hole in the ground. Ava was...enthralling, spellbinding. Captivating.

She was calm and easy-going now, but he would wager his best knives that she had a temper to go with that hair of hers. Her face was that of an angel, with her high cheekbones and wide, expressive eyes. But her sensual mouth and tempting curves hinted at a sexier side that Lincoln itched to bring out of her.

“Are you laying claim, because I’m definitely interested,” Beau said.

Lincoln paused with his beer half way to his lips, and slanted a glare at his youngest brother.

Beau chuckled and shook his head. “I get the point, Linc. Stop with the look. By the way, who called earlier? You looked upset.”

Shit. How could he have forgotten about Solomon’s call? As his gaze once more snagged on Ava, he knew exactly why he had forgotten.

“Is it bad?” Beau asked.

“Bad enough. I can’t exactly tell the family with Ava here.”

Beau rubbed his jaw. “Christian brought her bag into the house. Is she staying?”

“I hope to hell not.” For several reasons. The main one being that Lincoln didn’t think he could keep his distance from her.

Anita Clenney ANGUS Release Party May 27th

Come celebrate the release of Anita Clenney's new novella, ANGUS: A HIGHLAND WARRIOR BRIEF on Tuesday, May 27 6-8 pm EST. There will be lots of fun and giveaways


Anna brushed her hand against Angus’s back as she said goodnight. She felt the crinkle of paper. What was he hiding from her? At her door, she glanced back and saw him watching her with a worried frown.

Once in her room, she undressed and showered, all the while puzzling over the hidden paper. She was still thinking about it when she got in bed. She couldn’t sleep. Not just because of the paper Angus had hidden. She kept thinking about the Mighty Faelan locked away in his time vault and the warnings from the Watcher. Why had he dreamed about her? And could Druan have been the demon in her dream? Most warriors had vivid dreams, sometimes even visions. But this dream had felt different. More personal.

When she finally fell asleep, she dreamed of the demon again. She was running for her life, and someone was with her. He was wounded. She knew he would die if he didn’t get help. Angus? She couldn’t see him clearly, but the demon wanted her and the man dead. The demon came closer, and just as his face started to come into focus, she woke.

Anna leapt from the bed. The dagger she kept underneath her pillow was in her hand. She was shaking all over. Bloody hell. She’d never had a dream like this before. The demon could have been real, or he could have symbolized the demons of her past. Would she ever be free?

She didn’t want to go back to sleep and risk dreaming again, so she went to find Angus. If she knew him, he’d be up all night reading those papers. She used the special knock on his door, but he didn’t answer. Maybe he was asleep. She could do some snooping on her own and find what he was hiding.

He wasn’t sleeping. He wasn’t there. The box of papers was sitting on a table. Anna opened the lid and saw a death certificate. Her mother’s. What she read broke her heart.

Brenda Novak's A SWEET LIFE + Diabetes Research Auction

Have your cake and eat it too--your purchase of A SWEET LIFE (at only $2.99) helps fight against diabetes! Not only does all proceeds from the sale of A SWEET LIFE get donated to the Diabetes Research Institute via Brenda Novak's Online Auction for Diabetes Research, but the online auction is also celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year! Almost everything will start at just $3--and all the proceeds will go to benefit the Diabetes Research Institute. To date, the auction has raised over $2 million dollars! Register today and join the fun!

A Note From Brenda Novak:

Dear Reader:

I can't tell you how excited I am to bring you this boxed set. I have long admired so many of the authors who are partnering with me on this project, and have been excited to get to know those who are new to me. Every one of them was so generous when I emailed to see if they'd be willing to take part. They all got back to me almost immediately with an enthusiastic YES!

I'm grateful to you, too, for purchasing this set because it is enabling me to raise even more money for diabetes research. For those of you who might not be aware, my youngest son has this disease. He was diagnosed when he was just five years old. Shortly after that, I started Brenda Novak's Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research, which is running now at So far, thanks to the support of both my shoppers and my donors, I've been able to raise more than $2 million--and this is our big 10-year anniversary, so we are hoping to raise those totals a lot higher. You are now part of that endeavor! If you would like to be more involved, please register for the auction and jump into the fun. We have nearly 2,000 fabulous items up for grabs (all starting at just $3).  Those who support the auction are a community of warm, giving people who are dedicated to making the world a better place, and we'd love to have you join us. "Many hands make light work," as the saying goes....

I'd like to give a special shout out to Lauren Hawkeye, who also has a book in this collection. She helped me with the auction for many years before her own son was diagnosed, at just two years old. For obvious reasons, this is a cause near and dear to both our hearts. I'd also like to extend a special thank you to my publisher, Harlequin Enterprises, who generously licensed three works to me in order to make this collection become a reality (the book by me and the novellas by Susan Wiggs and Susan Mallery).

I recently heard a frightening statistic--that one in three Americans will have diabetes by 2050. That's crazy, right? I hope the Diabetes Research Institute, which is the recipient of the money we raise, will be able to find a cure soon. I think they are well on their way and pray that what we are doing will help them a great deal.

Here's to making a difference!
