Hyena Heat Holiday Giveaway & Cover Reveal!!

I’m so excited to share the amazing cover of my soon-to-be-released new series debut:  Every Night Forever (Hyena Heat One).  The heroes of this story came from the “bad guys” in The Wolf’s Mate Four, but I knew that deep down, were-hyenas Dante, Mason, and Cairo were really just struggling to find their mate.  How could I leave them unmated and lonely?

Every Night Forever will appear on Amazon and Smashwords on Thursday, December 6.

Every Night Forever (Hyena Heat One)

by R.E. Butler

After narrowly avoiding a personal disaster, she-wolf Alyssa Morgan can’t wait to leave her wolf pack and start her life over.  Trying to rebuild her shattered self-esteem, she swears off relationships.  When she accepts a job at Stone’s gym, working for three hunky were-hyena brothers, she discovers the hardest thing she ever had to do wasn’t leaving her pack, but keeping them at arm’s length.

Dante, Cairo, and Mason Stone have been unlucky in love.  As were-hyenas, they need to share a mate, and they hadn’t found the right woman… until Alyssa walks through the door.  But the sweet she-wolf is anything but interested in a relationship with them.  Oppressed within her wolf pack, she doesn’t see herself as worthy of their affection.  When her life is threatened and they almost lose her, they decide it’s time to convince her that she is their mate and they are perfect for each other.

This story contains one she-wolf trying to find herself, three overprotective were-hyenas with love on their minds, m/f/m/m interaction, neck biting, and symbolic tattoos.

I LOVE this cover!  She’s a perfect Alyssa in my mind, beautiful and vulnerable.  I can’t thank Ramona Lockwood of Romance Book Cover Designs for coming up with this fantastic cover.  I am so glad that Ramona and I are working together on covers, she’s one amazing and talented lady.  If you’re in need of a cover designer, you can find her by clicking HERE or on the permanent link on the right side of the blog.

  9. My favorite bad boy fom tv Damon from vampire diaries also I love him and From my books there’s so any it hard to choose but Duncan from the immortal trilogy

  10. I have to agree with you on Rhage. Now, don’t get me wrong, you have some awesome bad boys of your own, but there’s just something about Rhage. IN FACT, he was so “real” to me, that i actually named my son, who i was pregnant with at the time while reading his story, Rhaige. I have my own blue eye, blonde hair bad boy now! LoL! I swear it’s true, you and I are friends on FACEBOOK, go look!(Theboysrwx4@gmail) 😀
    I changed the spelling just a bit, to make it his own name, by adding an “I”. So I’d definitely go with Rhage for the ultimate BadBoy!

  11. My fav bad boy from tv would be Vex from the lost girl he’s so naughty but he’s adorable.
    Books there are so many but one that sticks out is Jonas Wyatt from Lora Leigh’s Breeds even getting mated hasn’t stopped his interfering and manipulating of others

  15. I have a lot of Fav Bad Boys butt I have to say my current favorite Bad Boy from Books and Movies is Paul Lahote from the Twilight series played by the AMAZING Alex Merez:) I just wish someone else would have done justice to her shapeshifters the way you have:)

    • Wow, what a great compliment! I like Paul from the series as well. Doesn’t hurt that Alex is HOT, but I like the barely controlled temper and protective vibes from him. You’re so sweet! Thanks!

      • I have to tell you some of my La Push Wolfpack girls are HUGE fans of yours and eagerly await your next book and we discuss them when they come out and I recommend you to all who ask do I know any good shapeshifter books, you are always at the top of the list

  16. Right now Christian Grey from Fifty Shades always comes to mind.Christian Grey always took control of every situation.Mr.Grey is very dominering,sexy ,and still has that vulnerable side to him that only Anna was able to touch.I love a man that knows how to take charge of the situation.

  17. My favorite tv bad boy would have to be Damon from Vampire Diaries. My favorite book bad boy is Aeron from Lords of the Underworld.

  18. My favorite bad boy is Jerricho Barons from Karen Marie Moning’s fever series. Can’t wait to read this one and I love that the bad boys get to redeem themselves.

  19. There are so many! Let’s see Paul Walker in the Takers. I like Zane in Zane’s Redemption by Tina Folsom. Not necessarily a bad guy, Gerard Butler. I’m sure he could be bad. The list could go on.

  20. Well, well of all the FANTABULOUS bad boys out there, my most favorites are, and in no particular order LOL:
    Favorite TV show, has to be my Vampire Diaries Addiction~ Joeseph Morgan as the so yummy Klaus! There is just something about his voice and that old but charming character he portrays
    Favorite movie, without a doubt is the ever so amazing Mark Sinclair Vincent~AKA Vin Diesel in the The Fast and the Furious.
    Favorite book, has to be that Ryne Taylor from The Keeping, by Nicky Charles. The author paints an ever so lovely picture in your mind when he is sitting on his sofa watching Mel come to…OH my skittles!

  21. Right now, I would have to say my favorite Bad Boy is Vishious from BDB Book 5, I just finished his story.
    But, my all time favorite Bad Boy is Rhett Butler from Gone with the Wind. He had debonair , sexy & bad boy down to an art form. And Clark Gable was the perfect actor for the movie. 🙂

    • I really do adore all the BDB men. Wow, what a classic bad boy you mentioned! I love him so much I even named one of my mountain lions Rhett (from Callie’s story). I watch that movie once a year, I adore it. 🙂

  22. Yes, another give away, I would have to say my fav bad boys of all time are Riddick from Pitch Black and Harry Callahan (Dirty Harry).

      • I know what you mean, his a lovable bad ass, I love the seen in PB were he snick’s up on the captain and you think his going to kill her but just cuts her hair and smells it that gets me every time. I looking forward to the installment in the trilogy.

  23. I’ll have to agree with Desiree on Ryne, he was AMAZING. I also like Chase from Mia Castile’s Butterfly series, he’s a lover bad boy. I still can’t forget Bo, even though he’s got a limp, I still can’t help but picture him as a total BADASS. I can’t wait for his story. From tv I otta go with Eric Northman, he is more badass in the books but Askars does him justice. I also like Jon Snow(kit harington) from game of thrones, he’s badass in a solitary kind of way. My all time-would drop everything-kill anyone for tv bad boy is Cullen Bohannon, hell on wheels played by Anson Mount. Mmmmmmm love me some Anson Mount, yummmmm From movies I gotta go with Frank Christmas (Jason Statham) in the expendables, dom from fast n furious along with Paul walker(baby blues).

    • I hope you love Bo’s story when it comes out in January, too! Finally someone mentioned GoT! I LOVE that show! Jon is so adorably clueless about women but he’s got the protective vibe going for him. I love Ason Mount, he’s so sexy with that long hair. Yum! You have some awesome choices!

  24. fav bad boy….TV: Eric from True Blood, MOVIES: Riddick from Chronicles of Riddick, and best Bad Boy Book character is just way to hard to choose, there are all those Dark/Dream Hunters and countless Weres not to mention all those Brothers of the BDB and lets not leave out the Vamps, Faeries and Druids…..the list really does go on…lol

  26. Mine would have to be Vin Diesel in the Pacifier. I could entertain myself wqtching him chase the kids any day. 😉

  27. Hey, I have to agree with you on Damon being my favorite bad boy on tv, though in the movies I have to say Dominic Purcell as Drake in Blade 3, and in books there are a bunch, Rhage is great, but I have to go with Sin in Sherriynn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series.

    • I completely forgot about Drake. I really loved Dominic in Prison Break, he’s so gorgeous, and I loved him Blade 3, too. That’s my fav of the series, mostly ’cause of him. OK, I must read the Dark Hunter series!

  28. Bad boys… where do I start? Christian from the 50 Shades books, Damon from Vampire D, Jason from Jason and Cadence,Mr. Wickham from Pride and Prejudice, Eric from the Sookie Stackhouse novels… So many, so little time!!

    • All very ‘good’ bad boys! Love all of them. I especially loved Spike early in the series when he was with Dru and all sorts of insane but still managed to treat her like a queen.

  30. Definately can’t beat Dean from Supernatural…mmrroww! My heart belongs to Zhadist from the J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood…sooo jealous of Bella and film I go all the way with Spartacus….any one of them…mmmmmm. Can’t wait to read about your bad guys. Bring them on!
