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?

Excerpt 1 from UNLEASHED BY SHADOWS . . .Cale

He feared no man, no foe, no obstacle or challenge. He’d learned to stand his ground and take it without a wince while growing up with the most to prove in the House of Terriot. He’d been schooled beneath the heavy heel and meaty fists of Bram Terriot, bearing the marks of those lessons scored into his skin and once tender psyche. He understood intimidation better than he did compassion. Had once indulged in every savagery Lee now expected from him. Would have become a brutal, heartless monster walking the same path his father followed had it not been for the two things that called to his latent decency: The brothers who’d fearlessly stood beside him and the female brave enough to believe his claims.
            He owed them. He owed his family prosperous lives without fear and subjugation, where pride wasn’t measured in cruelties. He owed the woman he loved the fulfillment of promises made by a starry-eyed boy. He owed them a future in which they bowed to no one and had no reason to expect the worse from one another. And to achieve those things, all he had to do was right the wrongs of the man who’d desecrated the crown he now represented.
            All . . .
            With a weary laugh, Cale closed his eyes.
            His debt. His burden. His to carry and complete alone. No whining about the costs to body, heart or soul. No crying over what couldn’t be changed, repaid or repaired. No shirking from sacrifices sure to cost more than he’d ever thought to wager. The blood on his hands would never come clean. There was no forgiveness for his sins—the sins of the father now those of the son. He was lost but he wouldn’t drag those he loved and respected down with him. Not while he still had strength and breath and opportunity.
            He couldn’t save his people hiding on their mountain top. He couldn’t purge his guilt without a willingness to surrender his life.
            And he couldn’t protect his mate if he couldn’t provide her with his heir.

10 Reasons to Love UNLEASHED BY SHADOWS:

1.      Cale Terriot, new king in the fiercely aggressive House of Terriot shape-shifter clan.  An underdog, the smallest, weakest of 12 princes, who drove himself to become their leader in order to claim his childhood love.  If you like ‘em dark, HOT, tormented by guilt, driven by ambition, with a hidden vulnerability that tears him apart then my rowdy, tattooed, rock-n-roll king is for you!
2.      Kendra Terriot, a gentle, emotionally scarred princess who becomes a determined, protective queen in order to support her first and only love.  Her evolution on the pages is one you’ll root for.
3.      New Orleans!  Who doesn’t love a paranormal set in this steamy, mysterious and often deadly atmosphere?
4.      Cale’s brothers.  Smoking! They dominate their scenes with searing sexuality, wry humor and some mighty fine dance moves – so much so that my next project is their novellas in the “House of Terriot Foursome”!  Something to look forward to!
5.      Max Savoie.  Anyone who’s read any of the “By Moonlight” books LOVES Max, the former mobster bodyguard who takes on the mantle of the Prophesied One to save the clan of Shifter outcasts in the Quarter. Stoic, unpredictable, deadly, and soon to be a daddy!
6.      An edge of your seat page-turner.  Fast and furious with a rollercoaster plotline filled with action, surprises, heartbreak, humor and sizzling passion. You can’t put it down.
7.      A cast of unforgettable secondary characters. Some new, some old friends. All add exciting, unexpected, and completely believable layers.
8.      Loose ends tied.  Fans of the series will find several plotlines deliciously resolved. Can you say Alain Babineau? 
9.      Support group.  For “By Moonlight” newbies and groupies alike, I have a fabulous “Nancy Gideon By Moonlight”  Goodreads group that offers Buddy Reads, sneak peeks, reading challenges, giveaways, chats and camaraderie for all things books and book boyfriend related.
10.   Stand alone.  Though part of the “By Moonlight” series, UNLEASHED BY SHADOWS will quickly pull new readers into the adventure without confusion and brings them up to speed in this unique Shifter world. I’ll warn that you may get addicted and need to go back for the earlier books.
