Today’s special author is Nancy Gideon. She is going to share a little about herself and her new book coming Monday, October 13th. So we’ll get out of the way and Nancy it is all yours.
Thanks for having me here today! It’s been a real adventure getting to this point. You’d think after 55 books and a quarter of a century, I wouldn’t have many firsts left, but self-publishing was something that took me by surprise – because I loved it! The creative freedom, the control (the OCD freak in me was in heaven!), the ability to draw upon a fabulous behind the scenes team, and the adventure of something new and exciting combined with a series that’s tried, true and dear to my heart.
I wanted to reward the loyal readers of my “By Moonlight” dark paranormal shape-shifter series with what they’d been clamoring for – the return of their first and favorite couple – shape-shifter Max Savoie and New Orleans detective Charlotte Caissie. The road to happily-ever-after deserved a dream destination. It’s the perfect book for those new to the series because as the hero rediscovers his past, the reader learns about the world alongside him.
Release Day is right around the corner – Monday, October 13!
Enjoy an early look at Remembered by Moonlight!
Because the road to . . .
Clever, cool and preternaturally lethal, Max Savoie is leader of a secretive shape-shifter clan, heir to a mobster’s legacy, and the love of New Orleans’ top cop . . . but he can’t remember any of them. The only way to recover his past, and his rightful place in the arms of the woman who risked all to save him, is to surrender to a mysterious visitor who could use him as a weapon against all he’d loved.
Happily-Ever-After . . .
After rescuing her mate from his ruthless captors in the North, hard-hitting Detective Charlotte Caissie is now painfully vulnerable—a stranger in his eyes . . . and in his bed. The key to his memories is locked in a tortuous past. To reclaim the strength of their passionate bond, Max must learn to trust her enough to face that darkness at her side before the threat it hides exposes a secret Cee Cee carries.
Is never smooth.
When an investigation into grisly deaths in an underground Shifter fight club points to more than just dangerous clan rivalries, Cee Cee enlists Max’s help to find a traitor in their midst while there’s still time to turn a deadly invading tide. But the cost of saving their treasured future may mean sacrificing his past. Especially when the enemy they pursue . . . might be Max, himself.
“Every delicious word Nancy Gideon puts on the page exhilarates with a sensuous ferocity. Hopelessly addicted.” —Darynda Jones, NY Times Bestselling Author
Excerpt from Remembered by Moonlight by Nancy Gideon
Where was Max?
Had she expected it to be easy having him here so close and yet so agonizingly far away? Bad enough watching him in that antiseptic clinic cell, a prisoner of his own panicked madness, raving, raging, out of control. Worse was having him here in the lush, sexy surroundings he’d built for them to share, temptingly near yet impossible to reach.
A bargain made in heartbreak hell.
Though she might be tortured by cherished memories, he was not. She was nothing to him but a protective port in his emotional storm. And that knowledge was driven home like a stake through the heart every time they were together. Every time he stared at her through those cool green eyes without the slightest flicker of response. Every time he took that distancing step back to evade the casual graze of her hand. Every time he lay next to her in the night and silence created a force field of discomfort.
Tripping over him every minute of the damned day only emphasized how much she wanted, needed him back.
And underlined how far away he was.
