New Year’s Giveaway: Day 20, Juliana Stone
Juliana Stone and I met at RWA 2010. She is a good friend of my CP, Elisabeth Naughton, and we hung out the whole time we were in Orlando.
This girl is so damn fun! She is sharp and outgoing and personable and funny as hell. Hilarious. I swear I never stopped laughing when we were together. Found myself anticipating her next quip or comment. She has an awesome voice (sings in a band in her “off” time – snort – like she has any after writing, mothering and wifing–is that a word?) and even set up a karaoke night at a local bar. So, so fun!
I bought Juliana’s first book in the Jaguar Warrior series, HIS DARKEST HUNGER, at the Barnes & Noble at RWA Orlando and had her sign it for me. (Come to think of it, that’s where I bought Cynthia Eden’s DEADLY FEAR and had it autographed.) Juliana’s work is…HOT! And twisted…I’m speaking of plot here, 🙂 but you knew that right?
She also writes a sexy sci-fi, time travel series called Black Opals.
Up For Win Today:
The second book in her Jaguar Warrior series, HIS DARKEST EMBRACE.

Jaxon Castille: jaguar shifter, warrior, assassin. He has long hungered for the chance to make his former lover, Libby Jamieson, pay for her deadly betrayal. After three long years he’s finally found her. The hunt is over…
But the Libby that he finds is not what he expected. She has no memory of their tumultuous affair; of her treachery; of anything beyond her own name. A shadowy and deadly clan has marked them both for death, and in an instant the game changes: the hunter has become the hunted.
On the run, with the ghosts of their past between them and a dark, desperate hunger quickly reclaiming their bodies and souls, Libby and Jaxon must discover the truth behind the dark forces working against them. Together, they must grab hold of a destiny that has the power to either heal them or destroy them.
But the truth is far more shattering than anyone could imagine…
Upcoming Releases:HIS DARKEST SALVATION, the third book in the Jaguar Warrior Series, July 2011
