About the Author:

lc son author photoWife of one. Mom of three plus a Beagle.

Well, at least that’s how I’m described in the confines of my everyday life.

​Writing has always been second nature to me. I spent my childhood creating short stories and my collegiate years writing for the campus paper (Go TERPS!) Jump twenty years to the present–I’m still writing. At my day job I spend most of my time writing capability briefs, white papers, proposals–you name it.

Then one day it hit me! It was time to access my own creative power and bring to life the characters I’ve created in my mind.

In addition to enjoying life with my amazing family, I can usually be found with my head in a book, binging my favorite shows, and watching movies with jaw-dropping scores! (I love all things Danny Elfman!)

Anna’s Bear
Paradise Valley Shifters Series Book 1
By Dena Garson
Paranormal (shifter) Romance
Release Date: 4/13/2022

Anna Cooper wants what every mom wants – human or shifter – a happy, safe home for her young son. Even if it means working multiple jobs to make ends meet. Her struggle is compounded by the fact that she gave up her family ties and her cougar pride in order to escape her abusive ex-husband. So when she meets Cam and her cougar insists he is their one true mate, instead of rejoicing that she found him, she balks. She trusted the wrong man once – she won’t do it again. Even if he can kiss her senseless.

Cameron Wyborn came to town with one thing in mind – reconnect with his bear so he can shift again. But after months of trying everything his doctors recommended, he faces the possibility that he may never shift again. Meeting Anna stirs powerful feelings inside him and he cannot deny he is drawn to her. But his need for control overrides his belief in destined mates.

When Anna’s past comes back to haunt her, Cam is forced to decide if he is strong enough to surrender to fate in order to save them both.

Mini Author Interview:

1) Where did the idea of the book come from?
I had the idea for a mother bear shifter several years ago. I churned it over and over in my head until I was able to outline what I felt was a reasonable story. As it turned out, Anna’s Bear fell into place while I was writing what will now be book 2 in the Paradise Valley Shifter series (Dax’s Cat). Always funny which characters yell the loudest in an author’s head.

 

2)What is you favorite part of the book?

My favorite part of the book is when Cam has his ah-ha moment about how he feels about Anna. I like strong male characters, but enjoy them more when they finally allow themselves to be vulnerable with THE ONE.

Spotlight & Excerpt: A Most Unusual Duke + Giveaway

A MOST UNUSUAL DUKE

I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the A MOST UNUSUAL DUKE by Susanna Allen Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway!

Title: A MOST UNUSUAL DUKE
(Shapeshifters of the Beau Monde #2)

Author: Susanna Allen

Pub. Date: December 28, 2021

Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca

Formats: Paperback, eBook, Audiobook

Pages: 288

Find it: GoodreadsAmazon, Kindle, Audible, B&NiBooks, KoboTBD, Bookshop.org

 

Bridgerton meets Werewolves Within in this sparkling shapeshifter Regency romance mixed with humor, steamy chemistry, and fantasy. The Duke said he’d never get married…

 

The Prince Regent insists his cousin and fellow bear shifter, Arthur Humphries, the Duke of Osborn, take a mate to ensure the continuation of their species. After all, Arthur is an Alpha, so he must set a good example. The duke would very much prefer to continue his comfortable bachelor lifestyle, but the Prince Regent is not a bear to be poked.

Beatrice, the widowed Marchioness of Castleton, is in possession of a powerful secret. She knows all about Shifters, her horrible late husband being one of them. At any moment, Beatrice could reveal the secrets of the Prince and those like him—unless the Prince can make sure she marries another Shifter.

A marriage between the Duke of Osborn and Beatrice is far from ideal for either one, but at least they won’t fall in love…right?

Witty, fantastical, and entirely unique, A Most Unusual Duke is perfect for readers looking for:

• A delicious Regency romp with a paranormal twist
• A devilishly handsome Alpha hero
• A marriage of convenience
• A magical world to sink your teeth into


Excerpt:

Beatrice is the widow of the Marquess of Castleton, who she discovered was a wolf Shapeshifter. She has been using this knowledge to ensure that George, the prince regent, leaves her and her fortune alone — until he decides he has plans for her and his cousin, Arthur, Duke of Osborn…

“The lady knows better than you, Artie.” The diminutive was delivered with pique. “And she knows her leverage over Us must inevitably come to an end.”
A shiver ran down her spine. It was true: she was not so foolish as to have thought her protection would stretch to the end of her life. She had suspected she would be killed by one of these creatures in due course. Would the prince see to her end himself, or would he require his cousin to dirty his claws?
“There is a letter among my personal effects that reveals the secrets I kept, should I meet a mysterious end.” She lied without compunction.
The result was an arched brow from the prince and a light touch on her elbow. “Our kind can scent an untruth,” said the duke, who sounded regretful.
“Well played, nonetheless,” said His Highness. “Secrets weigh equally heavily on the keeper. I will relieve you of your burden and elevate you at the same time, dear Beatrice, if I may.”
“No. You may not.” She would run, to America, to the Antipodes—
“Were you to flee you would not get far. My influence would precede you to the very ends of the earth.” Beatrice met his gaze, as she was not meant to, as would be treasonous under any other circumstance that did not involve the knowledge she kept close. He looked vaguely apologetic as he continued. “Do you tell your tale, I will have your mental capacity questioned. I will see your fortune disappear in the snap of a finger. In addition, your family will fail to benefit from your candor. Is your youngest sister not about to make her debut? I will ensure she has the most disastrous of Seasons, at the hands of—”
“Monster.” Beatrice set her shoulders. “Beast.”
“Odin’s breath, ma’am,” the duke gasped.
“My formidable enemy.” George smiled; Beatrice questioned his mental capacity, but even she would not say so, given the state of his father’s. “My soon-to-be cousin by marriage.”
