Guest Blogger: M.A. Ellis (with a giveaway)

Hello, all!

Am I the only one who finds it hard to believe the year is officially in ‘waning’ mode? Activities and events are ramping up for yours truly. Before you know it, October will be here and that means RomantiCon! I can’t wait to see my talented peers and all the readers who make are lives worth living—and you know who you are! Then it will be Halloween and rounds of events that have the ongoing ‘paranormal’ theme. Who doesn’t love that?

I’m thrilled to announce my new release from Ellora’s Cave has my first paranormal theme. Filigree and Fantasy is a panormal erotic romance set in Macedonia—the country. Not the town in Ohio. Although, I’ve been there many times and while I find it quite nice, I doubt there are any shape-shifting canines in the city environs. You will find those in the new book.

This is the first book I’ve written where key components of the story were actually based in fact. I was blessed to have first-hand knowledge of the wonderful art of filigree jewelry making from my daughter’s dear friend and former roommate who is an extremely talented artisan. She shared her knowledge and photos and tales from her Macedonian internship. Best of all, she graciously allowed me to name my heroine, Whitney, after her.

Here’s the blurb and a link for an excerpt. And I’m diggin’ the cover, people. May I please have a pair of arms like that in real life? Please!

Until next time, I hope you enjoy,

Filigree and Fantasy - Blurb

Whitney is ecstatic over her internship in Macedonia and the opportunity to hone her craft at the hands of a filigree master. Little does she know the old man has an ulterior motive for her presence—using her talent to save the dwindling numbers of his family’s canine shapeshifters, the Sharplanjat.

Jovan isn’t a shifter, but his sense of duty rivals that of the Sharplanjat—until his unbridled attraction to the woman who might very well hold his family’s future in her hands forces him to throw caution aside and hold her. Taste her. Drive her to the brink of exquisite passion and beyond.

Mesmerized by the virile, violet-eyed foreigner, Whitney is more than ready for a quick, steamy affair. But the extremely determined Jovan has more than several days of scorchingly wild sex in mind.

But when she finds out his family secret will she run screaming in fear or embrace the fantasy that can only be found in his protective arms?
