What happens when a brand new Fairy Godmother, a witch, and a troll, are caught up in a twist of Beauty and the Beast…Magic!

Ever since the day a bedraggled fairy walked into his casino and turned him into a troll, Tanner Scott has been in a bad mood. Now, the casino is losing money, the dwarves in the family mine are on strike, and he can’t keep a housekeeper to save his life. When one of their clients nearly drains the casino’s bank, Tanner loses it and decrees the man must pay the consequences.

Bonita can’t help wanting to rescue her dad from his downward spiral so she heads to the casino to face the man who owns her father’s debt—Tanner Scott.  What she doesn’t expect is how desperate being a troll has made Tanner. Or that behind the scenes is a magical fairy with a mission. Or that love might finally conquer all—trolls, kidnappings…and her own disbelief.

Thank you to the wonderful Janice Shaw for this Kindle World download hack for those in the U.K. and other locations.

For those who live in the UK: THIS has been PROVEN to work…so if the above doesn’t work…try this!!
1. Sign into your UK Amazon account and go to “manage devices” and “content” then “settings.” Scroll down to country settings.
2. Where it says “Click here to learn about other Amazon sites you are eligible to shop on based on your county of residence.” Click the blue word HERE in that sentence. It will say what Amazon store you can shop at.
3. Then click on learn about (again, it’s in blue font).
4. Then click the yellow bar near the bottom that says “Transfer your kindle account to US Amazon.” It will transfer your account over to the US site and you can buy as normal.
5. To change it back, just do the reverse of the instructions so change from US Amazon back to the UK.

Tortured Hero Blog Hop!!!!

Thursdays Bite

a seat of your pants blog!

Today was supposed to be the kick off for the Tortured Hero Blog Hop, but it’s sadly been canceled. So sit back and enjoy my post anyway!

Betrayal, by ml guidaUnlike my Critique Partner ML Guida‘s heroesSeth (my hero from Snow and the Seventh Wolf, and my most tortured hero to date) doesn’t undergo the tortures of demons, the devil, or hell. No, his torture comes from his own stubborn insistence that humans are a lesser species than werewolves. Seth first appeared as the angry brother in Little Red Riding Wolf, and he tortured not only himself, but his sister with his prejudices, but once he reaches his own book, I turned the heat up in the form of his own sexy human lover, Snow Electra Jazzman.

But there are so many other tortured heroes! Paranormal books are full of them? Why do we love the angst of an alpah male? Why do we love to cause them pain, or find them already wounded, and salve their wounds? What is it about the damaged man that is so appealing to the female psyche? Are we sick? Twisted? Perverted?

No, we’re just in search of love.

And we want to be the one who heals the men. We want the heroine to be the only one who heals her lover, or the only one he’ll let close enough to heal his wounds. I’ve been working on a Beauty and the Beast Twist for my other series, Tales from the Black Court (book one out in fall 2014) and in my research all the beasts have inner wounds to match their outer ugliness. Look at Disney’s famous film and you can see that not only is the prince in need of learning how to help others love themselves, he doesn’t understand how he lost other people’s love. He’s wounded, and Belle can see it. She can see his inner pain.

So can Belle on one of my favorite shows, Once Upon a Time, see into Rumpelstiltskin/Mr. Gold’s heart. And we see with her. He’s bad, he’s got flaky gold skin, and a funny weird laugh, but she sees that inside he just wants love. And why does he? Because women have wounded him over and over again and now he’s defensive and angry. A true beast.

In the end I believe all romances with tortured heros are versions of the Beauty and the Beast story. A man who was wounded and is now as ugly on the outside as we think he must be on the inside. A woman who sees the wounded man underneath. And a magic that will triumph over evil queens, magic spells, and plain old ornery stubbornness, true love!

Think about other tortured alpha males. Who is your favorite? Is he too a  Beast?
