RELEASE DAY, AT LAST, with my Haunted Open House Blog Hop!

I’m SO excited to introduce (or re-introduce) my favorite book boyfriend, Cale Terriot. I fell hard for this dark-souled, strutty, tattooed, rowdy rock-and-roll prince-turned-king in the House of Terriot way back when he was just a sinister whisper in HUNTER OF SHADOWS. I just had to learn more about him. After digging for his secrets and exposing his vulnerability with the help of his childhood love-now queen-Kendra in PRINCE OF SHADOWS, I thought I’d gotten over him until he roared back into REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT to settle a debt, and almost took over the pages (it’s that Terriot arrogance!). I had to promise him another book of his own so I could finish the edits in peace.

UNLEASHED BY SHADOWS explores the darkness that provokes terrible deeds, the regrets that keep happiness at bay, and strength that can only be discovered through heartbreak. Enjoy this sample and then on to the treats . . .

“Complex characters, vivid writing and intriguing plot twists keep readers coming back to Gideon’s magical NOLA.” –Publishers Weekly

He feared no man, no foe, no obstacle or challenge . . .

Burdened by the weight of his secrets and his father’s sins, the need for redemption pulls Cale Terriot from his duty to his clan and the arms of his new mate into deadly intrigues in a rival territory. His dangerous masquerade in a high-stakes Shifter fight club is about to be exposed to those who would show no mercy – if he can survive in the ring.

How to protect a prince turned king made pawn?

Fearing she’ll lose her soulmate to the darkness he carries inside, Kendra Terriot, newly made queen in the Shape-shifter House of Terriot, must provide him with an heir in order to save his life . . . and his soul. But first she must risk all to coax him back from the edge of violence inherited with his crown.

Can her love tear him from an unbreakable vow that can only end in death?

“Every delicious word Nancy Gideon puts on the page exhilarates with a sensuous ferocity. Hopelessly addicted.” —Darynda Jones, NY Times Bestselling Author

It may have been momentary insanity that had me thinking releasing a book during my 5th Annual Haunted Open House would be a good idea (cut to frantic pulling at hair and turning on the computer at 4:00 a.m.) but UNLEASHED BY SHADOWS is here (!) debuting as I open the doors to my haunted house extravaganza of ghoulish guests, goodies, giveaways and other unearthly delights. Get up close and personal with Cale (But not too close. I get jealous easily!) with excerpts, phenomenal book trailer, rockin’ playlist, deleted scenes, insight into the “By Moonlight” shape-shifter and “Touched by Midnight” vampire series and much, much more! (Make sure you check out UbS’s precursor REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT and my Indie horror movie novelization IN THE WOODS for only $0.99! in my HOH!)
