You know, if you have a desire for such a thing.
He has been taken. And you are his only chance.”Â
That wasn’t something Jan expected to hear-especially from strangers who’d just rescued her from some mysterious and ferocious creatures. And she really hadn’t expected her rescuers to be shape-shifters….Â
Now it turns out her boyfriend, Tyler, hasn’t gone missing, he’s been stolen-and Jan’s the only one who might be able to get him back.Â
Yeah, Jan’s pretty sure the entire world’s gone crazy. Even if the shifters claim that the naturals (like her) and the supernaturals (like them) belong in this world…but the preternaturals, what humans call elves, don’t. Â And the preters have found a portal into our world. A doorway they can use to infiltrate, to take, to conquer. Â
Jan’s not just Ty’s only hope – she’s got to rescue humanity, as well….

“Do you believe in magic? You will when Gilman’s done with you.” — New York Times bestselling author Dana Stabenow
Those of you who are sharp-eyed will have noted the price, and the format. Â That’s right: HEART OF BRIAR is a paperback original.
I know that for a lot of writers, trade or – better yet – hardcover is where it’s at. Â And yeah, the more expensive, more durable format is Â nice. Â But I remember being a teenager and going into a bookstore with my allowance -and later, my wee teenaged summer camp counselor paycheck – and trying to buy as many books as I could with the money I had. Â Paperbacks – the lower price point – allowed me to do that.
As much as I love trade paperbacks and hardcovers, I flinch when I see the prices, and think about the books I wouldn’t be able to buy. Â So yeah, when Harlequin said “we’re thinking about publishing this duology in paperback first…” I leapt on it with both hands and some unabashed glee.
I hope y’all feel the same. Â :-)
