Sneak Peek Sunday!


I’m so excited to participate in my first Sneak Peek Sunday! I love sharing and I love meeting new authors and sampling their works.

I’ve attached a sniblet from my brand new (as in available tomorrow in the e-verse!) release, PRINCE OF SHADOWS, Book 8 in my “By Moonlight” dark paranormal Shape-shifter series with Pocket. After you read it, please continue on through the Sneak Peek link to savor more tidbits from other authors.

ENJOY!


She felt Cale recoil when she seized his hand. Before he could react, she dropped to her knees, pressing her cheek to his knuckles so he’d feel the heat of her tears.

“My prince, I beg you. Please don’t strip me of my family.” And then a softer, achingly personal petition. “Cale, please.”

Kendra’s anguished gaze lifted to take in the harshly magnetic features he shared with his clan: strong, scowling lines beneath short, spiky dark blond hair shot through with Terriot red. He took a quick breath. Anger infused his expression, not quite disguising a flicker of agitation. He pulled his hand away, warning, “Don’t ever do that again.”

She searched for some sign of sympathy in the stropped-steel-gray eyes, now so unmoved and pitiless. Yet he drew her to her feet with deference he hadn’t shown her cousin as he pronounced, “We’re your only family now,” and walked purposefully away.

She huddled in the doorway, panting wildly as the truth closed around her like a noose. She was on her own for the first time in her life, surrounded by a clan of ruthless preternatural beings determined to rip away the only thing of value she could still cling to.

Her virginity.

PRINCE OF SHADOWS by Nancy Gideon

Pocket Star / 5-27-13
“5 of 5 Stars! Grabbed me and wouldn’t let go. Darker, grittier, more dangerous, and had a plot rife with twists . . . and I simply loved it. This might be my favorite of the series.”Literal Addiction

Others Controlled Her Fate

A gentle female held hostage in a deadly play for power, Kendra Terriot’s only means of survival for herself and her family is to play to a careful courtship game. The one she chooses from her clan’s dangerous heirs will inherit the coveted crown, keeping her their prisoner forever . . . unless she can retain her virtue until rescue arrives.

The Past Destroyed His Dreams

Favored son of their brutal Shifter leader, the only calm in Cale Terriot’s violent world is a childhood love for his delicate distant cousin whom he’s pledged to make his queen. With Kendra at his side, he knows he can become the kind of ruler his clan needs, but first he must learn how to become the kind of mate she desires.

A Choice Would Determine Their Future

In a treacherous race for control, where weakness means death, Cale must prove he’s not the beast his beauty fears and still protect her, especially once her unrequited love returns to free her. The only way to win her respect could mean surrendering his throne. The only way to win her heart could mean letting her go . . . even if she no longer wants to be saved.

He-ll-oo sexy shifter romance—why haven’t I met you before?? Pure unadulterated romance with a sizzling Romeo and Juliet plotline. I mightily enjoyed this book. What a smorgasbord of shifter hotness!”The Urban Book Thief


“Told in Gideon’s unique manner, serving up tortured and spine tingling alpha male, PRINCE OF SHADOWS transcends the paranormal with a gripping love story. Another amazing addition to the Moonlight series. 5 Stars!” – Readaholics Anonymous

  1. You are a cruel, cruel woman, Nancy Gideon. Giving us a taste of this book when we can't dash over to Amazon to get it. Waiting a whole day is downright cruel. Oh, wait. It comes out at midnight??? Well, that's a little better.
