Myths and Magic Spotlight – Anne Renwick

Introducing Anne Renwick, author of A Trace of Copper

Though Anne Renwick holds a Ph.D. in biology and greatly enjoyed tormenting the overburdened undergraduates who were her students, fiction has always been her first love. Today, she writes steampunk romance, placing a new kind of biotech in the hands of mad scientists, proper young ladies and determined villains. Anne is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. She lives in Maryland with her family, but makes her online home at: www.AnneRenwick.com

A small Welsh village. An interrupted romance. A rogue frog on the loose threatening their future.

New recruit to the Queen’s agents, Dr. Piyali Mukherji is given a simple first assignment. Travel to the small Welsh village of Aberwyn and solve the mystery of a young woman’s blue skin lesion. A challenging task, for the alarming infection is unlike anything she’s seen before—and it’s spreading.

Evan Tredegar, the town’s pharmacist and the only man to ever capture her heart, knows more than he’s telling. Despite his efforts to push her away, her touch reawakens old desires. As more villagers fall victim to the strange disease, he’ll have no choice but to reveal his secrets, even if it means sacrificing his freedom.

Together they must move past broken promises, capture a rogue frog, and stop the infection before it spreads out of control.

Major Announcement!

Major Announcement!

You may have noticed a change in the number of titles in the books menu.

In addition to the forthcoming Shifter’s Claim series I’ve decided to list all of my paranormal titles on the site.

Some of you may know I also write books under my married name Lucy Leroux. The reason for two pen names is so that my readers always know what they are getting. I don’t distinguish by genre, instead I separate by sexual content. My Lucy Leroux titles include explicit (and satisfying) sex scenes.

For a long time I’d intended on keeping these worlds separate, but life happens and the line quickly blurred. My list of paranormal titles is expanding and I want to give my readers a chance to keep up with those steamier books. My Lucy Leroux heroines are not of the kick butt variety but they are strong confident women (or witches) that more often than not rescue themselves when necessary.  If hot sex scenes don’t bother you I highly recommend you check them out!

There’s another reason for this change. After long thought I’ve decided to share certain book worlds. Once the Elementals is wrapped I will start writing about the seven witch families like the Delavordo’s and Burgess clans. It’s an incredibly ambitious plan—I plan to highlight a critical moment in time for each family. Their stories will span the world, different centuries, and possibly cross dimensions.

Some of the stories I envision wouldn’t work without steamy sex. As an author I’m a big believer in letting the story tell itself. So I’ve decided not to fight my natural inclination. The Seven Families books will alternate between clean and steamy and will consequently be published under both pen names. The same is true for the Shifter’s Claim series. I have a very clear picture of how Dmitri’s story begins but he’s too sexy to work as an L.B. Gilbert hero. So he gets to be a Lucy Leroux one instead.

I know there are some diehard readers out there who appreciate that my Elemental stories don’t include explicit sex. I am not forgetting about you! There will always be stories for you. It’s just taking me a little longer to finish everything I want to write now that I’m a mom—FYI I wrote this post with a toddler lying on top of me :p. It’s one of the reasons I need to try and be as productive as possible. For me that means letting my characters do what they need to do, including having rich sex lives when appropriate.

I hope everyone understands!

Kin Selection is coming – the Myths and Magic Box Set.

Yogi, a wolf shifter, is bound by honor to keep their existence a secret. He kidnaps Deena and takes her to the cub’s family.  Knowing a hellion with curves likes hers is the ultimate temptation for the other males in his pack, Yogi stays close to Deena, fighting to keep his desire for her under control. But she just might ignite the animal within him.

Air is finally here!

It’s action-packed, funny, loving, surprisingly family-oriented & deeply engrossing.

This is a book that I couldn’t put down and read in one sitting.

LB Gilbert does a great job with descriptions, presenting the heroine and main character as a bad ass chick that I want to be.

Woman empowerment! This is a great read in that it includes all things needed…action, romance (without sex), badassery, and great writing.

Some suspense, action of course, loads of humour, spunk and sass. Definitely looking forward to finding out more about this unique world and these fantastic characters.

To me, it was even better than the first one. The dynamic between the two main characters was great and a lot more sexually charged compared to the first one.

Bestselling author Shannon Eckrich’s FORBIDDEN is the twelfth novel in the dystopian paranormal romance collective, The Othala Witch Collection.

Falling in love isn’t supposed to be deadly.

In Sector Twelve, being a Natural isn’t only dangerous, it’s a death sentence. And Layna just happens to be one. If the council were to find out, they would surely kill her, regardless whether her sister is the Regent or not. She had sworn to her mother she would keep her abilities a secret, and she has no intentions of breaking that promise. Then Seth came along.

Seth is also a Natural, and Layna not only finds herself drawn to him and his powers, but the harder she falls for him, the more her past begins to emerge. Memories which were erased to keep her safe. To keep her hidden. And to keep her away from Seth.

According to a prophecy, Layna has the ability to stop her sister and the council from destroying the sector. And only Seth can help her. But there’s one problem. Seth isn’t only her true soul mate, but according to the prophecy, he’s destined to kill her. Unless, she can change the future.

Finalist Award in the 2015 National Indie Excellence Book Awards, Young Adult Fiction Category.

Thanks to her offbeat mother, Shade’s full name is Galactic Shade Griffin. Having a name like that while being the new girl in school is pretty much catnip for bullies. The summer before Shade’s junior year of high school, her mother breaks up with yet another boyfriend and moves them once again to a new town.

This time, they move into a dilapidated old house where Shade has an entire attic bedroom to herself—at least until she discovers it’s haunted by the ghost of a teenaged boy named Brandon Yates. When Shade’s best friend goes missing, her life becomes even more complicated. With the help of Brandon who’s struggling with his own issues in the world beyond, Shade faces the question of whether or not she has what it takes to become a true hero.

Although this novel deals with a number of serious issues—drug and alcohol abuse, cutting, and disturbing world events—it’s primarily a novel about a teenaged girl finding out who she really is and that she’s capable of so much more than she ever thought possible.

Part of the Fated & Forbidden Collection. Each book stands alone.

Last of your kind? Check. Being hunted by everyone? Check. Waking up magically bound to the world’s most cocky and annoying assassin? Wait, what?

Survival has always been on the top of Fallen’s To Do List as being the last Dragon shifter in Tapestry had painted a target on her long ago. But after being captured and magically tethered to an assassin who could kill her in an instant, time is running out. With the fate of an entire world at stake, Fallen has to find a way to get out alive, with or without her unwanted companion…her incredibly sexy unwanted companion.

Exiled from the Kingdom and on a mission to save his stepfather from the Collector, Saber’s life is already a mess. But he never could imagine that he’d be hexed into a mindless shadow assassin or worse, being kidnapped and mystically-bound to a hot blonde vixen that has a crazy obsession with fire. Sexy/strange/fire-chick aside, he has got to find a way to get out of there but Fallen isn’t in the least being helpful with their escape plan. Seriously, can things get any worse?

Magically-bound, determined, and both fighting an undeniable attraction, can Saber and Fallen work together to free themselves and save their world by defeating the Collector? Or will time slip out of their grasp and all will be lost?

There’s only one problem, she believes he can never be hers for loyalty is calling him back home, back to the 19th century.

Everything changes on the evening someone tries to murder him. Albert narrowly escapes death and travels through time, crossing paths with a beautiful brunette who saves him.

As Friend of the Pack, Aria Naveed should be untouchable, protected by the most influential group in the Pacific Northwest. But someone is unleashing rogue vampires to hunt her down, and she is determined to find out why…

BOOK THREE: BURNED BY FIRE

[Amazon]

Becoming a vampire is easy. Living with the condition…that’s the hard part.

Newbie vampire Alyssa never asked for this life, but now it’s all she has. Rescued from death by Lysander, the aloof and sexy leader of the Peregrinus vampire clan, she’s barely cut her teeth before she becomes a target.

Kallisto, an ancient and vindictive vampire queen – and Lysander’s old mate – wants nothing less than final death for her former lover and his new toy. She’s not above letting the Acta Sanctorum, and its greatest vampire hunter, Santino, know exactly where the clan can be found.

With no time to mourn her old life, Alyssa’s survival depends on her new family. She will have to stand alongside Lysander and fight against two enemies who will stop at nothing to destroy them.

Bryn Halbrook had always seen the glow on the people around her. And she knows all too well what psychiatrists do to people who claim impossible powers. She’s always stayed below the radar, but when she discovers the meaning of the beautiful auras, she’s not sure why she was cursed with the ability to see the soon-to-be-dead and be unable to do anything about it.

But Bryn is on the brink of the unbelievable truth – she is a creature from myth. Valkyrie- a warrior maiden of the God Odin. And a Collector of Souls.

Aidan Lee just can’t do what he’s told. Visiting Craven was not supposed to be a time to fall in love. He’s just helpless when faced with the beautiful Brynhildr, but there is more to the biker dude that either Bryn or Aidan himself knows.

Can their fledgling love survive the secrets and intrigue, the reality of Odin’s realm of Asgard, the pressures of being a warrior of the gods,

But Bryn lucks out when the Trickster god Loki sets his sights on her. Can Bryn hold her own against the charmingly manipulative god long enough to discover what Loki is really planning?

Dead Radiance is a fantasy filled with passion and intrigue, betrayal and broken hearts, that will keep you turning the page.

Zoe Delarey has been hiding her entire life.

She’s not a normal girl, even by witch standards. Created by her father with forbidden experimental magic, Zoe is an alchemical child.

When the Regent suspects her father has broken sector laws, he hides her away in a secret stasis chamber protected by powerful magic.

But it isn’t her father who wakes her. Instead, Bastian, a handsome stranger after her father’s secrets, releases her from the chamber. With her father arrested, Zoe finds herself on the run from the Witches Council. She has no choice but to accept Bastian’s help, even though she doesn’t trust him. He might be rescuing her; he might be using her… Zoe is not sure.

Thrust into the real world for the first time in her life, she needs to learn to control her magic and, at the same time, get a handle on her feelings for Bastian. Neither of which is going to be easy. Especially when Zoe turns out to be the key to saving the sector from the savage beasts that prey on the lives of the people.

Will she fulfill the secret destiny that runs through her blood?

From USA Today Bestselling Author Noree Cosper, Alchemy is the thrilling 9th part of the Othala Witch Collection. This is a paranormal romance that you won’t be able to put down

She drugged him!

Damien had never before been as outraged until he awoke in his apartment—alone. His head sore and his ego deeply bruised, his body ached for the release her enticing body had promised when they walked up those stairs a few hours earlier. The whole situation would’ve been laughable except for the fact that his wolf imprinted on her. Damien knew that from now until the day he died, she will be the only one for him—and she had drugged him. After a quick search of the bar, he decided that nothing notable was missing, leaving Damien hoping that whatever she was looking for—she didn’t find. Maybe, his delectable thief would try again, at his home next time.

Kassandra is the only Dragon Guard who has the ability to hide her scent. So, when the wayward Dragon Prince Dmitri is spotted in the same town as the wolf shifter Damien, it becomes her responsibility to see what he is up to. Not finding what she is looking for at his bar, she makes a plan to sneak into his house—imagine her surprise when he is there waiting for her. When he mistakes her for a common thief, Damien offers an ultimatum: spend two days with him or he will turn her in and plaster her picture everywhere.

Damien has two days to convince her to stay and give in to the attraction.

Kassandra has two days to get the information she came for and make her escape. But, with trouble circling them and her growing desire for him—will she be able to walk away? Will it even matter once he finds out who she really is?

As she seeks her identity, SB realizes she’s unlike any other creature in the world, making her the most valuable person on the planet. And the most wanted.

It’s all fun and games until someone ends up undead.

Layla Petrovich has spent her whole life running away from her hometown of Hamletville. Raised by the town’s medium, and dubbed the “weird” girl for her fascination with swords, the last thing Layla wants is to go home.

But when she receives a desperate call to return just as a mysterious outbreak sweeps the country, Layla’s instincts urge her to go. Good thing, because the dead are rising.

Layla, however, isn’t entirely on her own. With her psychic powers growing, surely everything will turn out okay, right?

Not so fast. Just when Layla believes she might survive the apocalypse, a sinister and ancient force rises from the shadows to finish mankind for good.

Because the truth is, we were never alone in this world.
