Makenna and Rhys are back, and the stakes are higher than ever. Their world is about to go up in flames. Here’s a little taste of the story…

 

Sometimes, being queen royally sucks.
Makenna has embraced her true self and taken her rightful place as Alpha at Rhys’s side. But learning how to live as mates in the midst of a raging war proves more difficult than anything she’s faced. That is, until the goddess stretches fully awake, taking control and burning everyone in her path.
But that fiery power may come in handy to battle Kylian’s diabolical plans. Using dark magic that shouldn’t be possible, he’s torn a hole in the fabric of reality and put their kingdom in more danger than ever.
As Makenna fights the rising power within, her entire world crashes down around her. Secrets are revealed and hearts broken when an unlikely ally presents them with an impossible choice to end the war. When the truth comes to light, it will challenge everything they believe. Leaving them to face an agony they could never have imagined.
The bonds of family and pack are tested to their limits. Nothing is what it seems, and loyalty is strained to the breaking point. Can Rhys and Makenna hold on to each other and solidify their bond while reclaiming their throne? Or will the truth be more devastating than lies, tearing them apart forever? 

*This book contains hot wolf shifters, a fierce warrior goddess, and a hero and heroine who set the page on fire. Mature content suitable only for those 18 and up.*

Isn’t it gorgeous? Stay tuned, because the full length book trailer is coming soon!

Resilience is here!

Resilience 3D (1)

I cannot even explain how excited I am about this latest installment of TRWC!

Like all of TRWC, this one has been a labor of love. I think out of all of the books in this series, this was the toughest to write, but also my favorite. I put a lot of myself and my past into this series, laying my guts on the page with every word I write. Never has that been more true than in Resilience.

I completely lay myself bare in this story, giving you an inside look into some of the deepest hurts and darkest times of my life through Liz. It’s not pretty. It’s not soothing. It may even be difficult to read for some.

But it’s honest, real, and as raw as you can get. It is quite literally my guts on these pages.

Here’s a peak into that world.

 

~The fiercest warriors emerge from the most brutal storms.~

Liz and Ryland Vaughn have fought hard to survive every threat that’s risen against them. But nothing they’ve faced compares to the battle to come.

As they settle in to married life, all seems perfect and quiet. Too quiet. Being a warrior doesn’t allow for peace.

Then one vicious moment throws their world into upheaval and rips their hearts to shreds.

Wanting to get away from it all, they accept a mission to New Orleans to assist fellow warriors. Ryland hopes the time away will repair the rift between them, but the chasm only widens as they face an enemy so subtly horrific, they don’t even know they’re falling.

As they descend into darkness, Liz’s past once again rears its ugly head.

This time, it takes Ryland along for the ride.

Can Liz and Ryland undo the damage to their marriage and hang on to their faith while completing their mission? Or will they fall to temptation and lose everything they’ve fought so hard for?

Lucifer intro

As I promised, this series keeps getting darker. Resilience doesn’t disappoint in that aspect. And there’s one big reason.

 

Lucifer has arrived in the TRWC world.

 

Resilience_ Playground

 

In the story, we know him as “Dom”, but don’t let the pretty facade fool you. The epitome of evil lurks inside that suave, handsome package. Of course, evil wouldn’t be able to do its job if it wasn’t tempting, right? And “Dom” brings the temptation in spades.

 

Fire and ice Resilience

Not to be upstaged, Tiriana brings the pain with her own special brand of torture.

She’s up to her same old tricks, but this time, she’s pulling out all the stops. She’s going for the win and holding nothing back to get it.

 

 

 

Don’t worry, it’s not all gloom and doom for our favorite warriors! With several new characters, and a brand new setting in New Orleans, there are plenty lighter moments.

And what would a post from me be without some music? Today I’m sharing Liz and Ryland’s song. It’s like it was written just for them. Give it a listen. I dare ya not to cry if you’re already #TeamLizAndRy! ❤

Resilience is Coming!

Resilience, book 3 of the Reluctant Warrior Chronicles, is almost here! It releases on June 14, and today I have the cover for you!

In Resilience, we go even deeper with Liz and Ry, and the story gets so much darker. As promised. How is it darker, you may ask? For one, we get to see more of Liz’s sordid past as she’s drawn back into a world she thought she’d left far behind. Second, a certain character I know some of you have been waiting for finally shows his face.

 

Lucifer makes his appearance. And it’s nothing like you expect!

 

Ok, I’ve kept you in suspense long enough. Check out the cover, then read on for a taste of Resilience!

Up Close & Personal With Author Michelle Dare!

Sensual romantic foreplay by couple in bed

 

I’ve told you all about Michelle Dare’s latest release, Where I End, now it’s time to get personal with the author herself. She joins us today to show us a piece of her process and lay her guts on the page.


Michelle, thanks so much for letting me pick your brain! I won’t ask too many hard questions. Well, I’ll try. Okay, so I’m going for the throat! Hehe. This is Guts On The Page, after all! So let’s jump right in.

 

1.) Why do you write?

Because I love it and if I don’t, my characters will drive me crazy.

~Yeah, I know that feeling!

 

2.) What do you want people to take away from your books, first the fantasy, then the new adult?

I want them to be able to escape reality for a little bit and live in another world in my fantasy books. To feel what it’s like flying on the back of a dragon or being able to use magic. With my new adult books, I want to pull on the reader’s heartstrings and show them that even in the darkest hour love can survive.

~I hear you. And it’s great when you can combine all that in one genre.

 

3.) Where is your favorite place in the world? Favorite place to write? I love the Outer Banks in North Carolina. I would live there if I could. I don’t have a favorite place to write. It’s more of where I can keep an eye on the kids and dog while working.

~Ah, a chick after my own heart. Love that Salt Life on the beach!

 

4.) Do you listen to music when you write? If so, do you have playlists for your books? If not, what kind of music do you like to listen to?

No. If I do, I end up singing and dancing in my seat instead of writing. I listen to a little bit of everything.

~Yeah, when a song hits you just right, sometimes you just have to move!

 

5.) What or who was your inspiration for writing Where I End and Where I Am?

Cy from Where I End came to me in a dream and once he started talking, he didn’t stop until his story was told. After readers read Where I End they started asking for Parker’s story. Once he popped into my head, he never left. He’s such a different character from Cy but they each have powerful stories to tell.

~And we love them both! You tell their stories so well.

 

6.) And now a really tough question, which one do you love the most, Parker or Cy? Why?  Bwahaha!

*Gasp* I don’t think I could pick a favorite. I love them equally. But I will say, even after Parker’s story was told, he never left my head. He talks to my other characters and jokes with them. He’s a lot of fun.

~He does seem like the type to have plenty to say.

 

7.) What drink do you have to have with you when you’re writing?

I don’t drink and normally don’t even have water near me. But I usually have a snack like chips or something.

 

8.) Do you prefer writing love scenes or fight scenes and why?

I enjoy writing fight scenes. The ones where the characters are arguing because they are packed full of emotion and I love writing down what’s going through their heads. The passion, the love, the hatred, whatever it is, the emotions are strong.

~Same here. A good fight runs the emotional gamut!

 

9.) Other than the people and fur babies in your life, what is one thing you cannot live without?

Lots! My SUV, phone, Kindle. Oh and chocolate! I have an obsession with Hershey Kisses and M&Ms.

~Oh, chocolate!

 

10.) Do you have any further plans for books with Cy and Parker?

I don’t have plans to give them more of their own books but one day may write Blair’s book. I have her story in my head but also have a long list of other books to write as well.

~Yay!

 

And now we end with the rapid fire questions. Clear your mind and say the first thing that pops into your head.

 

~Music: loud or soft? Loud

~Hot drink: tea or coffee? Coffee

~Favorite genre to read? YA

~Favorite musical artist or band? Maroon 5

~Peanut butter or jelly? Neither

~Gordon Ramsey or Bobby Flay? Ramsey

~Celebrity crush? Jeremy Renner

 

Thanks for joining us, Michelle! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

Thank you so much!

Cover Reveal & Pre-order for Michelle Dare!

When the first book in this stand alone series, Where I End, came out, I devoured it. It’s real, raw, and confronts head on topics others won’t touch. It gutted me and I loved every minute of it. So when I got word that the next book, Where I am, was releasing on February 22, I knew I had to spread the news. Below is the reveal of the cover, the blurb, and all the info you need to pre-order and keep up with everything going on in Michelle’s writing world.

Now, here’s the cover and blurb for Where I Am!

where i am ebook

 

Astoria

He was the man of my dreams, or so I thought. I wasn’t sure how I’d react when I saw him again. I planned on avoiding him, but our small hometown made that impossible. The years apart melted away when I saw him. Time hadn’t changed my feelings, after all. Jealousy flared anew. My heart, which I thought had healed, was back to being in a million pieces.

Now I’m right where I don’t want to be—in front of him with tears in my eyes.

Parker

Everything isn’t always as it seems. One moment could cause a ripple effect with unexpected consequences that last for years. Not a day had gone by that I didn’t think of her. When our paths crossed again, I knew I had to tell her the truth. Arguing was inevitable, but I’d rather fight for her than face another day without her. My heart always belonged to her.

Where I am is standing in front of her—asking for another chance.
