Guest blogging with Cynthia Eden about her latest release HOWL FOR IT! (with Giveaway)

October is finally here! And that means the scary times can begin. What would scary/fun times be without shifters and weres?

I love reading and writing about shifters and weres. They’re powerful. They’re primal. They carry a beast, and they can kick ass at will. How could I not get drawn into stories about these creatures?

When I think about shifters, I do have to confess that the wolf shifter is my favorite—maybe that is why I find myself writing so many stories about those dangerous wolves! But wolves are so fiercely loyal and incredibly protective—such perfect qualities for heroes and heroines.

In my latest release, HOWL FOR IT, I paired my wolf shifter hero with a heroine who normally, ahem, hunts shifters. Only this time, my heroine finds herself falling for her prey.

And that brings me to the question that I have for you all…what would make you fall for a wolf shifter? Is it the shifter’s strength? His loyalty? His animal magnetism? 😉

Please share! I’d love to know why you love those wolves. One random commenter will be picked to win a copy of HOWL FOR IT (digital or print, winner’s choice).

Here are my top 4 reasons to fall for a wolf shifter:
1. A man with a wild side can be fun.
2. I like a howling good time.
3. If I’m ever out on a dark an dangerous night, I’d sure like to have a wolf shifter at my side.
4. Loyal—forever.

Now please tell me what you like about wolves!

Good luck.

Cynthia Eden

Howl For It (Pride 0.5)

by Shelly Laurenston, Cynthia Eden

They hunger for your pleasure. They growl for your touch. And in these sizzling stories by New York Times bestselling author Shelly Laurenston and Cynthia Eden, these sexy wolf shapeshifters are lust at first bite. . .

“Like A Wolf With A Bone” by Shelly Laurenston
Quiet little Darla Lewis couldn’t be happier when the most-feared member of the South’s rowdiest pack kidnaps her. A girl gets real tired of being overprotected by her own shifter family, and there’s nothing like an oh-so-big bad wolf to start a pack feud, unleash her instincts–and have her surrender however and whenever she wants. . .

“Wed Or Dead” by Cynthia Eden
Gage Ryder knew his human bride had a wild side. But spending their honeymoon night on the run from hunters out to finish him and his pack is sure not the kind of fun he was looking forward to. No problem–Gage will do whatever it takes to lay bare Kayla’s secrets and find the truth. If he can keep from being captured by his own seductive game. . .

“Cynthia’s on my must-buy list.” –New York Times bestselling author Angie Fox

    I was just writing about this, but for the sake of humor, it's a twofer: You get a guy and a pet in one package. You'll save tons of laundry time since they tend to shred their clothes. On Game Days you can just put out kibble for snacks. You'll never have to worry about burning the roast, they'll just take it raw.

    I love how strong and possessive they are. I'm not sure why but I just love that. I love the feeling of being the only one they want.

    Good Morning. I love the fact that wolf-shifters seem to be loyal, warm, loving, protective of thier 'pack'. To find someone who is your mate. Someone who will always love you no matter what, for LIFE! Yeah, I wish there was more 'shifters' out there. Leann leamei1981@yahoo.com

    Morning.. They always seem to be everything a woman wants in a man.. Sexy, protective, and strong. Plus as everyone else is saying, they mate for life... that is the ultimate craving that most women have, a man that will not stray. With me personally the strength is most appealing. Something that most guys between the ages of 30 and 40 usually lack in todays world. lol Put it all together though, and you have the perfect life mate. Now if only they were real. ;) eh1717@yahoo.com

    I think a shifter's protective and loyal nature are reasons to fall for one. I also like that while they are strong and alpha, they also can completely fall for the heroine and be at her mercy. It is that female that can make them most vulnerable and bring them to their knees. I can't wait to read this book! It is on my B&N wish list. Thanks!

    Your 4th answer is my favorite, loyalty is a must. Their fur is a plus for me too ;). I could bury myself in it. Thank you.

    I love me some wolves because as you said they are always loyal. They are protective plus I can snuggle up to them and they will keep me really warm (and I am usually always cold).

    Thanks so much!

    I love how they are tough and very alpha even when they aren't the alpha. They have a strong mating ethic and you know with your wolf you are safe as long as you are theirs. I would love my own personal wolf. :)

    I love the idea of an animal nature married with reason, but more importantly, I love them because I'm always cold and I know if I were snuggled up to a werewolf, he'd always be able to keep me warm.

    I like the fact that they are dominate (even those who are not alphas). They are also very dependable, loyal, & responsible.
    The only bad thing I can think of is the shedding. LOL

    I love wolves because they are beautiful yet can be very deadly. They are very protective of their mates, cubs, and other pack members, loyal to them no matter what. And the shifters in books are often Alpha males (or at least very dominate) and so sexy!
