Happy (Belated) New Year! The Wolf Has Landed: Book 5 is Out!

First and foremost, let me take a moment to wish all of you a most amazing 2013.  I hope that all of you and your families enjoy a prosperous, safe, and happy New Year!

2012 was amazing.  I published ten books last year, which I never dreamed would happen when I first published A Curve of Claw in November of 2011.  I started off with only my beta-reader, but I finished the year with friends, readers, editors, cover designers, and a fan base that makes me grin like crazy.  Thank you for your support in 2012 and for your wonderful, amazing comments, reviews, and encouragement.

I had planned to reveal Bo’s cover on the blog ahead of the publishing date, but things got crazy over the weekend and I ran out of time.  So it’s my pleasure to let you know that the fifth book in The Wolf’s Mate series is NOW AVAILABLE on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble for 1.99.  That’s right, my sweet Nook peeps, I’m finally publishing directly to Nook!  *clapping wildly*  No more waiting weeks and weeks, now you can enjoy my stuff at the same time as Amazon and Smashwords folks do.  So…woohoo! (And thanks for your patience).

TWMBOOK5 Final copyThe Wolf’s Mate Book Five:  Bo & Reika

She’s on the run for her life …

As a child, she-wolf healer Reika Snow was promised as a mate to three were-lynxes to prevent a war between her pack and the lynx clan.  Her freedom is coming to an end as her twenty-third birthday arrives.  With her bleak future as the subjugated bride of the three males looms near, she does the only thing she can think of … she runs.  With the lynxes hot on her tail, the only thing she can do is pray she can find safety, somewhere.

He’s not going to let her get far …

Bo Elliot, highly ranked member of the Tressel wolf pack, rescues a she-wolf from the claws of three were-lynxes as they attempt to capture her.  When she awakens, he’s surprised to find himself staring into the beautiful blue eyes of his truemate.  With his bum leg, Bo doesn’t want to tie Reika down to a wounded male like himself by acknowledging that they’re mates, but he vows to set her free from the lynxes and give her back her life.  It will take every trick in Bo’s book to keep Reika from taking off on her own in a misguided attempt to spare him from getting tangled up in the hot mess of her life, but Bo will do anything for his truemate, even if it means walking away once she’s free.

This book contains a scarred wolf with a heart of gold, a she-wolf healer who wants to protect her truemate at any cost, and a wolf-on-lynx battle that will determine where Reika spends the rest of her life.  Readers should expect possessive werewolves, passionate sex, neck biting, and the kind of horniness that only the full moon can bring.

Bo’s book wouldn’t have happened without the support of my beta-reader, Jacq McNeill, who has become my best friend in such a short amount of time.  And also my editor extraordinaire, Jennifer Moorman, who jumped right into the middle of The Wolf’s Mate series without blinking an eye and I’m so thankful for her help.  If you’re in need of an editor, you can find her website here or on the permanent link on the right side of the blog.   The cover is courtesy of the amazingly talented Ramona of Romance Book Cover Designs by Ramona.  If you’re in need of a cover, you can find her blog here or click the permanent to the right.  It’s such hard work *wink* looking at stock images to find just the right sexy man to be on the cover, and I always have a blast checking out the sexy pics in the name of “research” with her!

Looking Ahead:  This calendar is a general idea of what I see happening in the first half of 2013, subject to change of course, since I’m not a machine.  🙂

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.

Now on to the contest!

I’m giving away THIRTEEN prizes this week to get ready for the holidays.  Since this book is about misunderstood bad boys finding their redemption, all you have to do to enter the contest is comment on this blog post and tell me, “Who’s Your Favorite Bad Boy?”  From TV, Movies, or Books….  My favorite bad boy from TV – Damon on Vampire Diaries (oh, those eyes!).  From movies?  Dom from The Fast & The Furious.  And from Books….so many to choose from – personally, I have to give it up for the hyenas, but I also really adore Rhage from Book 2 in the Black Dagger Brotherhood…so tormented, so amazing!  So that’s it my lovelies….who is your favorite bad boy??

Prizes up for grabs:

1.  Four ebooks of Every Night Forever

2.  Two $5 gift cards (Amazon or B&N, winners choice) along with two ebooks of Every Night Forever

3. Two $10 gift cards (Amazon or B&N, winners choice) along with ebooks of Every Night Forever

5.  Three Gift Bags (see contents below), three $10 gift cards (Amazon or B&N) along with three ebooks of Every Night Forever

Once more, I turned to the artisans at etsy.com and sought out gifts that went with the book.  I had a lot of fun searching for just the right things, along with getting to know three really special, talented women.  These three gifts are part of the three gift bags in #5 above, and will come packaged in a gift sack, and an email will follow with the gift card and ebook.  I’m thankful to Amanda, Karin and Roseann for their willingness to work with me, and I hope that the winners of these three prizes will love them as much as I do!

Happy Thanksgiving & New Series Teaser

To all my fans and friends in the U.S., Happy Thanksgiving!  Thanksgiving is my favorite food holiday.  I just love turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie with a mile high pile of whipped cream.  I started cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my family about ten years ago.  My daughter was just eight weeks old at the time and she was an early riser then, so she sat in her swing in the kitchen while I put the turkey in the oven and got everything cooking.  For two years, we lived in Sacramento, California, and it was just our little family – no visitors – and I still put on the huge meal because it made me feel connected to my family even though we were several hundred miles apart.  Now that we live in New Jersey, my family stays in Ohio and celebrates on their own, and my husband’s family joins us for the day.  I love sharing the traditions that I grew up with, and having family close enough to travel on the holidays.

The holiday just kind of crept up on me, since it’s a week earlier this year.  I was just wondering why the “Black Friday” commercials were on the TV when I looked at the calendar to find out I had very little time to get my butt in gear.  But I really don’t mind.  Staying up late all week cooking and preparing and then getting up before the sun comes up to start the meal….it’s such a sweet time for me.  A time to be thankful for all that we have – our health, our family, our friends, and coming through the hurricane safely – and to think back fondly on the family members that aren’t with us any longer.

I’m very thankful for all of you that follow the blog, send me encouraging emails and Facebook posts, and read my books.  I never imagined when I first published A Curve of Claw in 2011 that I would have fans outside of my family and my beta-reader.  Now, I can count among my friends people of all ages, from different parts of the world and even here in my home state of New Jersey, and it all started with the idea of a party-girl witch and her twin were-bear mates.

If you’ve read Michael’s story, The Wolf’s Mate Book 4, then you know that the “bad guys” – the were-hyenas Dante, Cairo and Mason – weren’t really pictured in a very good light.  But I knew that deep down, all they wanted was to find their mate, so I promised them that I’d write a story just for them, which is where the new series Hyena Heat comes in.  The debut novel will be released on Thursday, December 6th.  To celebrate the new series, I’ll be having an awesome giveaway beginning Monday, December 3rd.  I’ve got gift packs to send out, free ebooks, and gift cards galore!  I can’t wait to share the story of the hyena clan with you.  The official description is below.  Stay tuned to the blog for further updates, including my amazing cover and the giveaway details on December 3rd!!

I wish you all a very wonderful holiday.  Thank you, sincerely, for everything.

Coming December 2012….

After the Storm…

I’m happy to report that my family and I came through the storm safely.  Our full-time home was well inland of the coast of New Jersey, but we were still in the path of the hurricane once it made land.  The rain started on Sunday and continued on into Tuesday, but Monday was the worst, with winds that were steady around 60 mph with gusts up to 70 mph and very heavy rain.  We were so fortunate not to lose power at all during the storm.  Millions are without it now, and I certainly don’t take for granted that I’m sitting in my house with the lights on and the heat going.

Our covered porch where we stored our outdoor furniture.

My husband’s family lives in North Jersey along the coast, and we spent Monday night in that awful state of limbo where we wanted desperately to help them, but were not able to.  Helpless isn’t a word that you like to use during emergencies, but we certainly felt helpless as we waited for texts and phone calls from them.  Our families made it through the storm safely, which we’re very thankful for.  Although my brother-in-law’s home will need extensive repairs, and my sister-in-law is still without power, they’re in one piece and that’s what matters most.

Our front room

Our shorehome was not so lucky, however, and it’s not the first time that I’ve been grateful we don’t live there full-time.  The home, which I detailed in a blog post in August, is on a lagoon just minutes from the bay, a half hour from Atlantic City and the ocean.  Our shoretown was right in the path of the hurricane.  Sunday, we did all we could to secure our belongings by stacking furniture on top of furniture, turning off the power before we left, and emptying the refrigerator.  In the end, though, our efforts didn’t matter much, as three feet of water got into the small home during the highest part of high tide.  Our roof will need to be replaced, the walls cut out and replaced from the water damage, and everything except one television was lost to the water.  But as we kept reminding ourselves during the worst of the storm…things can be replaced, but people can’t.  Three homes on our street caught fire and burned all day long, a frightening reminder that when they evacuated the town because of the hurricane, that even the first-responders weren’t able to get out to help.

Our boat, which was lifted with the flood waters and moved towards the carport.

Through all of it, I received so many amazing emails and comments on Goodreads, Facebook and the blog, from some fans here in NJ and PA, around the states, from Canada, and the UK.  The outpouring of support was humbling and wonderful, and I thank all of you for your kind words and prayers.  We’re now going to begin the process of getting involved with the insurance agency and then cleaning out the ruined things and then…finally…repairs.  We’re fortunate to have a friend in construction who stepped right up to say he would handle it for us, which is one less thing for us to worry about.  So thank you all again for everything, and for those of you that were in the path of Sandy or are still dealing with the effects of the storm, I wish you safety and a quick return to “normal”.  XOXO, R

Available Now: A Bead of Blood, Book 5 in the Wiccan-Were-Bear Series!

The book has landed!  A Bead of Blood, Book 5 in the WWB series is available now!  You can purchase it for 99 cents on Amazon here or Smashwords here.  As usual, it will follow on iBooks, Nook, and other eReader device sites within six to eight weeks.

A Bead of Blood (Wiccan-Were-Bear Book 5)

Vampire Sabrina Chalice has spent the last few decades righting wrongs within the vampire community as a Hunter. When she stops a vampire-run, illegal were-animal fighting ring, she finds herself head over fangs for a were-bear named Griegs.

One hot moment leads to a connection that neither anticipated, and the solitary Hunter finds herself in a bear den, surrounded by love and acceptance. As Griegs makes amends and pulls Sabrina into his furry world, she’s happier than she’s ever been in her long life.

Warning: this story contains a sexy vampire that hunts other vampires, a were-bear that needs forgiveness, tent-ruining hot sex, and hatchet-burying apologies that will melt your heart.

I couldn’t have published Griegs’ story without some amazing help.

  • Many thanks to the amazing Ramona Lockwood of Covers by Ramona, who found the incredible images for the book cover and worked her magic.  I love her covers so much, I want to write faster so I can publish more books so she can do more covers!
  • Many thanks to editor Jennifer Moorman, whose funny comments, tireless support, and grammar know-how helped me polish out the rough draft edges.
  • Sincere thanks to my reader Jacq who read through the story several times and offered extremely needed and helpful advice.

And I wouldn’t have been able to complete Griegs’ story if it weren’t for the support of my fans and friends.  The emails and comments of encouragement pushed me to get his story finished, so thank you – from the bottom of my heart – for everything.

**On a side note, I’m listening to heavy rain and light wind this morning, as we wait for Hurricane Sandy.  Schools, businesses and roads are closed all around us in NJ and PA, and our family is keeping watch for the storm that should be in our area tonight.  Thank you all for the prayers and kind words.  I’ll post again when the storm is safely away from us.

In the meantime….connect with me online!  I love emails (rebutlerauthor@gmail.com), Facebook (www.facebook.com/R.E.ButlerAuthorPage), and Twitter (@rebutlerauthor), so drop me a note or comment on the blog.  I’d love to hear from you!

Franken-Storm, Executive Decisions, and Griegs’ Teaser!

As many of you know, I live in the great state of New Jersey.  If you have been following the news of Hurricane Sandy (aka Franken-Storm), then you know that it’s supposed to make landfall in the next few days on the East Coast and cause all manner of rain, flooding, and wind damage.  Our home is located well inland, but we do have our weekend house that is in an area that has the potential to flood, which is not good.  We have the potential to lose power at our regular home next week, and since my pub date with Griegs’ story is…you guessed it….mid-next week, I’ve made the executive decision to go ahead and publish early.  The latest book in the wiccan-were-bear series will be available on Amazon and Smashwords most likely on Monday the 29th, however it’s possible it will be as late as Tuesday, the 30th, depending on publication time.  I’ll post the details and buy links when the book is live, so stay tuned to the blog for further details.

Check out my awesome new cover, courtesy of Covers by Ramona.  You can guess how difficult it is to find a cover model that fits the description of the sexy bears in my stories.  So Ramona and I opted to go a different route and focus on the heroines.  When she showed me this cover, I’m pretty sure my mouth hit the floor.  I absolutely adore it, and I think that she’s the perfect Sabrina.  Ramona is such an amazing designer, I love working with her.  And it doesn’t hurt that I get to look at a ton of incredible stock photos of hot guys and call it “research”.

And this time, I used a new editor, the very fabulous and capable Jennifer Moorman.  She stepped into the WWB world without blinking an eye and  I can’t thank her enough for her help.  I had a blast working with her and if you’re in the market for an editor, please check her out.

Here’s the official description and a never-before-seen teaser from A Bead of Blood.

*Excerpt from: A Bead of Blood by R.E. Butler*

When I stepped inside, the door slammed shut and I was pinned against it, off the floor, with his face in my neck.

His voice was a barely contained growl that vibrated along my body.  “You smell so good, Sabrina.”  His tongue lit fire up my neck as he blazed a trail from the crux of my shoulder to my ear, my body shuddering as my legs wrapped around him and my hands dug into his shoulders.

“Uh, th-thanks?”  I stuttered.

I felt him smile against me, and then he ground his hips into mine.  I felt the length of his erection as it pressed into the apex of my thighs.  “Oh fuck,” I groaned, tightening my legs around him.

I felt his fangs teasing my flesh, and I closed my eyes, wanting nothing more in the world than to have him sink them into me and…wait!  I shoved on his shoulders, coming back to myself for a moment.  “No, no!  Don’t bite me!”

He lifted his head slowly, his fangs peeking from his parted lips, his eyes full of disappointment.  I smoothed the back of my hand across his cheek.  “I want you, too, Griegs, I swear, but it’s different for my kind.   We don’t let people bite us for fun.”

His eye ticked.  “I wasn’t playing.”

**Coming October 29th/30th**

Thanks so much for all of your support!  I can’t wait for you to read about Griegs & Sabrina!  XOXO, R
