Romance Paranormal

In the first of a dazzling new romantic trilogy, one woman's courageous search plunges her into a millennia-old supernatural war--and an irresistible passion. . .

Nurse Kayla Friday has dedicated her life to science and reason. But for her, Seattle is a place of eerie loss and fragmented, frightening memories. And now the only clue to her sister's murder reveals a secret battle between two ancient mythologies. . .and puts Kayla in the sights of lethally-sexy werewolf mercenary Hart. He'll do whatever it takes to obtain the key to the Gate of the Land of the Dead and free what's left of his soul. But seducing the determined Kayla is putting them at the mercy of powerful desires neither can control. And as the clock ticks down to hellish catastrophe, the untested bond between Kayla and Hart may lead to the ultimate sacrifice.

Re: Hearts Of Darkness

Your book sounds great - and I'd love to win a copy. Even if I don't win, I'll have to get it to read because I am intrigued. Best of luck with it.
(Nancy Reynolds 9:49am August 9, 2012)

Want to read more about Kayla.
Marjorie Carmony 9:50am August 9, 2012)

No I don't keep every version of my writings even the technical documentation that I do for my job. I prefer the final version that looks "supposedly" perfect and polished.

I would love to win a copy of your book.
Lori Yost 10:02am August 9, 2012)

Kira, I love romantic suspense & hope to win this one. If not I promise to still try your books. Now that I'm retired I prefer to read than watch day time tv. Better than most tv night time too.
Pat Moore 10:30am August 9, 2012)

Hi Kiera!! On page 116 of Hearts of Darkness. Love it! Story line is very
intriguing and keeps you guessing. I like to keep the final draft of my
story. Makes me feel like it's just right when I'm done :)
Jill Oswalt 10:31am August 9, 2012)

PICK ME!! PICK ME!! I want to win!!!
Pamela Faye Howell 10:43am August 9, 2012)

Sounds great! :)

The last time that I wrote anything was in university though... and I only keep the ending...
May Pau 10:45am August 9, 2012)

This sounds like a great read. My kind of book. Thanks for the blurb.
JoAnn White 10:51am August 9, 2012)

I am really intrigued! Can't wait to read your book. A lethally- sexy werewolf mercenary...yum!
Teresa Sullivan 10:53am August 9, 2012)

Enjoyed your blog. Your new book sounds like a great read.
Sheila True 11:19am August 9, 2012)

I keep everything I write. I like to see the evolution of things.
Michelle Donaldson 11:24am August 9, 2012)

I'm not much of a writer. But I love to read.
Your new book sounds amazing.
Pam Howell 11:45am August 9, 2012)

I've heard great things about this book. I'm impressed it
started as a NaNOWriMO project!
Sara Chamama 12:12pm August 9, 2012)

Hi Kira! This sounds like it'll be a wonderful book!! I love
your description of the writing process - so descriptive and
very true!! I keep everything I write - I love to go back
and look at my earlier drafts - it helps me learn about
myself as a writer and what I was going through at any given
time. I do like the pretty final draft, but I think there
is so much to learn from those earlier drafts as well -
there was so much of myself poured into them that I can't
bear to part with them. I would love to win a copy of this
Cheryl Beal 12:24pm August 9, 2012)

I loved reading this early and powerful excerpt. I am not a writer but of the things that I do write, I tend to keep my final copy and not the drafts.
G. Bisbjerg 12:47pm August 9, 2012)

Have not read any books yet in the "werewolf" genre. Maybe I could start with your book......Winning a copy would get me started.
Shari Santella 12:51pm August 9, 2012)

I am so excited to read this book. I love to read PNR
series and this one sounds very intriguing. Congrats on
this new release!

Pam Brewer 1:41pm August 9, 2012)

I really want to win this book!!!!
Charlotte Zimmerman 1:43pm August 9, 2012)

This book sounds really interesting! I look forward to reading it.
Chelsea Knestrick 2:13pm August 9, 2012)

Final copies only, no embarrassing evidence to be found.
Good luck and happy writing!
Tracie Travis 2:21pm August 9, 2012)

I have never published anything but I love to write. No one goes through my work with a fine tooth comb so my revisions are usually minor. I keep only final copies.
Kathleen Yohanna 2:32pm August 9, 2012)

Hmmm... sounds really interesting! Thank you for the chance to win your book!
Colleen Conklin 2:39pm August 9, 2012)

i will read this one
Debbi Shaw 2:41pm August 9, 2012)

Your book sounds amazing! The emotion in the excerpt is
palpable, so I look forward to reading the final product.
Zara Heflin 3:03pm August 9, 2012)

I really enjoy writing. I have kept everything that I have written,
whether it be a random chapter or a scene sample. I like seeing
where I've been and use it to see where I'll go.
Samantha King 3:08pm August 9, 2012)

Even though it took you nearly 4 yrs. to get the final version for this book, it was worth it to get a really good story. I am not a book writer, but I do like writing long letters to people (that are almost books) and love keeping notes on important events, statistics, etc. I enjoy and love reading the werewolf genre and I'd really love to win HEARTS OF DARKNESS and can't wait to read it since, even the scrawl notes were so-o good! Thanks, for sharing!!
Linda Luinstra 3:18pm August 9, 2012)

Shelly Caggiano 3:42pm August 9, 2012)

I love books with werewolfs! I've never read any of your books but would love to start! Wouldn't it be something if these creatures really existed!! Keep writing Kira! I'm going to check out B&N today!!
Melodie Paul 4:12pm August 9, 2012)

This sounds like an excellent book to read, and I enjoy books of this type. Keep writing (and write faster...since this is a trilogy--lol)! Much success with this lst one! I CAN'T WAIT TO READ IT!
Rich Cook 4:39pm August 9, 2012)

Sounds like a great book. I'll add it to my reading list.
Marguerite Guinn 5:09pm August 9, 2012)

I love the sound of the book, it sounds so interesting. I love reading books with strong female characters. Thank yu for the chance to win!
Jane Thompson 5:14pm August 9, 2012)

Sounds like a great read! Thanks for the chance to win!!

I just heard of your book yesterday. I have it on wishlist.
Lisa Garrett 5:57pm August 9, 2012)

Always looking forward to your books. Hpoe i won this one!
Nancy Gallagher 6:03pm August 9, 2012)

As a poet, I tend to keep only my finished versions of my writing. I have done fiction in the past for college writing courses and kept all of the versions leading up to the final copy on those. Thanks for the chance to win!
Angie Lilly 6:29pm August 9, 2012)

Who doesn't love a good read in the summer?
Susan Coster 7:00pm August 9, 2012)

I've always wanted to write, but never had the guts to do so. Back when I could have gone to College, I was discouraged when it counted the most, so I just put that dream away for good. English was always my favorite subject, and the hurt ran deep. Anyway, all of my writings are in my head, and perhaps someday I will put "pen to paper." As for your book, I would have never guessed that it was a supernatural love story!! The excerpt has me hooked, and I'm looking forward to reading it very much!! The artwork on the cover was very well done. It fits the story to a T!!
Peggy Roberson 7:29pm August 9, 2012)

I like Assam tea, too. And I love the phrase, "wee heroine-in-training." Every women deserves to be heroine in her own romance novel!
Catherine Lee 7:55pm August 9, 2012)

Desiree Reilly 8:09pm August 9, 2012)

This looks like a great book! Can't wait to read it! :)
Christina Garner 8:28pm August 9, 2012)

I've got this one on my wish list - I'd sure love to win it. Either way, I've got to read this one, it looks really good.
Martha Lawson 8:37pm August 9, 2012)

Your book sounds wonderful - look forward to reading it.
Mary Chin 8:45pm August 9, 2012)

I imagine that a story goes through so many changes along the way.
Mary Preston 10:01pm August 9, 2012)

thanks for the fantastic post! I've been *dying* to read this
book :) Congrats on the new release and best of luck for the
Erin Fender 10:18pm August 9, 2012)

I use to make many changes to business memos - I can't imagine
how many changes get made to a book!
Diane Sallans 10:34pm August 9, 2012)

I enjoyed the great post. Hearts of Darkness sounds like a fantastic story and
I'm looking forward to reading it.
Barbara Elness 10:56pm August 9, 2012)

Mmm that excerpt is pretty depressing. I think I'd need to be in the mood for it, though I am sure we get adrenalin or fun later in the story.
I keep the latest version because I am usually correcting an error of fact which I've just gone out and researched. Or I've added a scene which needed to be earlier in the story than the point at which I find myself writing when it comes to me.
Clare O'Beara 6:24am August 10, 2012)

I love a book cover that can make my imagination start up and being wondering what's behind me or just around the corner. The cover draws you in and the blurb on the back (or inside the front cover) locks the door behind you so you can't get out until you reach the end,
