“Dance of the Hunter’s Moon” By Amanda LeMayBlog Tour
Oct. 30, 2018 – November 12, 2018

 

 

Even though we’d taken on the rules of “human” society, behind closed doors and in our own environments, we were animals and lived by pack law.

Dance Of The Hunter’s Moon
(Sakana Series Bk #3)

Amanda LeMay


 

 

 

Blurb:

Jules Havarr is a Breeder. For her, it’s a problem. Smaller than other wolves, she grew up feeling inferior to her pack mates. It didn’t help that males tended to avoid her, or looked down on her as though she were unworthy of attention. When a visiting Breeder extends an invitation to breed, Jules accepts his offer, even though it means leaving her home, friends, family, and pack behind.

Breeding at the Moon Dance is an honor she can’t refuse.

That is, until the moment she meets Sorin Campion, and a rare and ancient bond binds them together. She knows it in her heart, feels it deep in her soul. This male is her sakana, and she’s all in.

The only problem? The Breeder whose invitation she recently accepted is Sorin’s twin brother.

Sorin is a dead wolf walking. He’s suffered tragedy and heartbreak that left a lasting reminder of all he’s lost burned into his flesh. He’s lived the past few decades barely existing.

Can the sakana bond he shares with Jules awaken him from his misery, and bring purpose and hope back into his lonely life?

While exploring their love for one another, Sorin and Jules are tested by a dangerous ongoing threat to their pack. A dark and vengeful enemy may tear them, and their new found happiness, apart.

Character profile:
At seventy-five, Sorin Campion had spent the last thirty-four years of his life in a haze of misery.
Burned into his hands was the evidence of the fire that took his first mate’s life. Living with the
guilt that he hadn’t run back into the burning house to save her ate at him little by little until the
last thing he wanted to do was live one more day. His twin brother, Taber, dragged him from
Lake Crescent, Washington to Albuquerque, New Mexico for a Moon Dance Celebration, and
when Sorin met Juliana, he felt the sakana bond take hold. Though he tried to fight the
connection, tried to leave her behind, the pain of walking away from her brings him back to life.
Sorin was forced into making choices he’d never dreamed he would make—choices that would
change his life and the life of his new mate. Now, Sorin must find a way to cut away the guilt
he’d dragged along with him for so many years and become the male, the sakana, Juliana
deserves.

Excerpt

 

Dance of the Hunter’s Moon

© Amanda LeMay 2018

Before Sorin, I’d never had a boyfriend. I’d never been in love. I’d never even been kissed.

If he’d taken the chance to save Aliza, we wouldn’t be spending one second in each other’s arms, enjoying anything as simple as the rain, the far-away flashes of lightning and rumble of intermittent thunder.

Because of our ancient, unbreakable bond, what we shared was more than a simple, physical connection. Making love was more than an act of giving and receiving pleasure. Every touch, every kiss, every smile he gave me, healed something inside of me, and slowly but surely erased every negative thought I’d held so close to my heart that kept me from being all I could be. I’d lived my life convinced I was inferior to the members of my pack, a runt with no purpose or place, and no amount of praise or encouragement from those who loved me could make me believe otherwise.

All that changed the second I met Sorin.

My mate.

My sakana.

My broken warrior.

Through our connection, I knew I wasn’t the only one healing. The pain he had lived through for so long was something I wouldn’t wish on anyone.

I made him smile. I made him laugh. I made him want to live again.

More than anything, whatever I gave to him that helped heal his broken heart, he gave back to me, and so much more.

I loved this male. I loved him so deeply, so purely, if something happened to him, if he were to die…I wouldn’t be as strong. The pain of losing him would kill me.

“Sorin…” Warm tears trickled down my face as he turned to pull me into his arms.

He whispered against my lips, “You’re tearing my heart out, beautiful.”

He kissed me, slowly at first with soft, full lips, then deeply, with long, dragging sweeps of his tongue against mine.

I wrapped my arms around his neck and held on as his mouth moved from my lips to my neck, trailing kisses all the way to my mating mark.

“Love you, Juliana. Love you so much.”

Instead of replying, a strangled sob burst from my lungs and I buried my face in his shoulder.

His teeth grazed my skin. “I think it’s time I take you back to bed.”

Sniffling, I nodded. “Yes, it is.”

About The Author
Indie author Amanda LeMay grew up on a small farm in Southern California reading every sci-fi book her dad passed on to her and watching every classic horror movie her mom shared with her. Her love for paranormal romance was an easy leap. Amanda published her first paranormal romance – full of dark sexy wolf-shifters called KISS OF THE WINTER MOON – in February 2018 – and her second book in the series, SHADOW OF THE SUMMER MOON went live in June 2018. Her wolf-shifters share a rare and special bond with their mates: the sakana bond, a rare and ancient bond that links their minds, bodies, and souls.
Amanda still lives in Southern California with her own Alpha-male husband and two grumpy cats and dreams of living on the beach in Texas. When she isn’t writing, or thinking about writing, (or plotting, or characters, or dialogue, or world building), she’s probably working on any number of crafts, sewing, gardening, or lost in another authors’ wonderful dream world. She plots most of her novels while walking, or driving, or while on long Texas beach vacations sitting outside listening to the waves. She loves reading paranormal romance, fantasy romance, sci-fi romance, contemporary romance…well, just romance in general.

WAGERS GO AWRY

Payton Samuels has always known she wants more out of life than being the youngest daughter of the ton’s most disreputable family. While her siblings are content to bet their future happiness on marriage, Payton learned early on from her mother that love is fleeting and leads only to disappointment. She’s got a different plan: she’ll work as a governess for Baron Ashford’s children, but only long enough to win her fortune at one of his infamous masked gaming parties. When she loses big, Payton sees her chance at an independent life go up in flames—until Lord Ashford surprises her by paying her debts.

WHEN LOVE IS IN THE CARDS.

Since the tragic death of his wife, Damon Kinder, Lord Ashford, has been a man made of ice. His determination to never be hurt by love again runs so deep that he can’t even connect with his children. When they quickly take to Payton, he thinks he’s found a solution: she’ll give them the affection and support he can’t. As he spends more time around Payton, his heart begins to defrost, and he can’t stop thinking about the captivating governess.

But every seasoned gambler knows that eventually, luck runs out. Can two souls so burned by past loves forge a new future together?

 My Thoughts:

The Gambler Wages Her Baron by Christina McKnight is an emotional conclusion to “Craven House series”. But can be read as a stand alone.

Well crafted with charming and engaging characters.  A gentleman of ice meets a lady with a warm heart and gambling issues, in this compelling and emotional story. The storyline is filled with heartbreak, brokenness, struggles, learning to trust, and finding a second chance at love. The children just added to this fabulous story.  Payton  Samuels and Damon Kinder, Lord Ashford are a fascinating couple, the chemistry between causes sparks to fly off the pages. Emotional roller coaster but well worth the time to read. Another must read by the talented Christina McKnight!
