LaVerne and I both write for the paranormal romance line at The Wild Rose Press, and her fantasy novella Affinity is an action-packed read that will hook you from the opening pages! I loved heroine Jenna's ability to connect with animals in her mind--it's a fresh twist to the shape-shifter idea. Of course, Jenna's affinity makes her different, and therefore wary of others--for good reason, it turns out. But she risks exposure to save the life of a little boy, and draws the attention of Nick, a sexy, jaded cop. Unfortunately, she also draws the attention of someone with much more evil intentions...
I've included the blurb below, as well as info about her new release which is going FREE in a few days. Also check out the ways to enter into the drawing for an e-copy of Silver Lake! Thanks for stopping by - happy Fall :)
Affinity, by LaVerne Clark:
When Jenna Thomas breaks her arm as a child, a routine x-ray wakens an abnormality in her DNA, a legacy her family carries from the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. Labeled a freak since then because of her ability to ‘call’ creatures and take on their attributes, she keeps to herself as an adult, not letting anyone close. But that all changes the day she saves a young boy from drowning in extraordinary circumstances, and the story goes viral.
Nick Hawke, an off-duty policeman catches the end of the drama and investigates the incident, not sure what to believe. His cynicism and growing attraction to Jenna are put to the test when word of her abilities gets out, thrusting her into the limelight and the attention of a dangerous man who will stop at nothing to have her under his control.
LaVerne's books are set in New Zealand, a land of myths and magic. Her latest release, Beyond the Shadows, will be FREE on Amazon from September 17th to the 21st. Make sure to download the Kindle version during these freebie days to get a taste of the paranormal in New Zealand!
