by Linda K. Hopkins
Genre: Clean Paranormal Romance

Unlike any shapeshifter romance you’ve ever read!

Handsome, alluring, and a little dangerous, Melissa Hewitt’s boss can barely manage to acknowledge her. But there is something about Leander Garrett that makes him impossible to ignore. He is not the only thing plaguing Melissa’s thoughts, however; a huge panther, as black as night, pursues her relentlessly through her dreams.
As winter turns into spring, Leander’s chilly demeanor begins to thaw, but danger prowls through the mountains, and Lee has a secret that lurks beneath his elegant clothes and rippling physique. Something that compels him to reject what he desires the most.
Can he learn to see the good in himself and finally allow his heart to love, and be loved in return?

˃˃˃ An engrossing and captivating tale of romance, Moondance will keep you enthralled to the very last page.

 


Linda K. Hopkins lives in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains in Calgary, Canada, with her husband, two kids and one dog. Originally from South Africa, she holds a bachelor’s degree in communications from the Univerity of South Africa.

    Love this book cover! The colors are great and the eyes in the background at the top are really striking! Thanks for sharing about this book and for this amazing giveaway! I would love to win!

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      Hmm! There are so many authors who are an inspiration. Probably Diana Gabaldon – I first read Outlander decades ago when it was first released and before she became a household name, and loved how she did things so differently. And authors who persevere, despite early disappointments.

  2. Linda Hopkins says:

    I read a lot, so I had a few! Matilda, by Roald Dahl, My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell, Thomasina by Paul Gallico.

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      It depends on the book. Moondance is set in contemporary times, in my own backyard of the Rocky Mountains, so there wasn’t a great deal of research involved, although I did contact wildlife services to learn what they would do with an injured cougar.
      My series, The Dragon Archives, is set in the middle ages, so I did quite a bit of research into what people ate, how they dressed, houses and castles, entertainment and customs of the day, as well as warfare, archery and hawking, which all come into later books.

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      The smallest thing can get an idea going – a photograph, a line of a song, another book that leads me on a tangent. I will often have ideas in my dreams!

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      Actually, I was sick with pneumonia, not responding to antibiotics, and looking for something to read – specifically a shapeshifter, but not erotic. I couldn’t find anything that interested me, so I made up my own story. By the time I was well enough to get up, the story was complete in my mind!

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      Can I have a time machine that lets me travel throughout time? If I can only pick one time period, then probably English Regency, around 1820.

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      This one really got me thinking – it isn’t so easy to answer! I think perhaps Jack Whyte – he creates masterful stories with so much history and storytelling interwoven.

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      About five hours a day in front of my computer, but when I’m not writing physically, I’m still writing in my mind, so that when I sit down again, I just have to the words on the page.

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      Yes … although, I find the more I write, the more I can, well, write! A slump seems to happen if I don’t just keep on at it.

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      I imagine all writers would like to see their books on the big screen! I do think my books would adapt well, so yes!

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      For me, the best thing is to just get writing! It may not be good, or ever see the light of day, but the process of writing gets my creativity going.

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      I read a range of books and authors, from fantasy and paranormal to women’s fiction and biography. I will often loose myself in my daughter’s teen reads, as well!

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      Absolutely! I was a bit of loner, always with my nose in a book. And when I wasn’t reading, I was writing poems and plays, which I’d get the neighbor kids to act out with me! (Although, let me just say, acting is definitely NOT one of my talents!)

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      This idea for this book came to me while I was sick with pneumonia! I was looking for something to read, and when I couldn’t find anything that interested me, came up with my own story.

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      I think, for me, it is all the other stuff that goes along with writing, such as marketing. It would be easy to forget that side, but even writer’s need to earn an income!

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      There are so many! I’m continually downloading onto my ipad 🙂 I’m busy reading the Brothers Maledetti at the moment by Nichole Van, and am really enjoying them. Others I have in my pile are The Secret by Kathryn Hughes, Ken Follett, Bernard Cornwall, CJ Archer – so quite a mix!

  3. Becky Kinard says:

    I love the book cover. A good cover can definitely pique my interest to find out more about a book. The cover makes me think of something mysterious and I love a good romance with mystery or suspense.

  4. Christina G. says:

    I like the book cover. It looks intriguing, especially the woman’s eyes. It’s a high quality cover. Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      I must confess I am not really a movie person, but I do enjoy a good drama and (dare I say it?!?) superhero movies! (I think that’s my kids influence – we always watch the latest releases together. I’m quite enjoying the new non-animated Disney classics as well – again, my children’s influence!

    • Linda Hopkins says:

      All my books are self-published, so not very long. I do have professional editors and a cover designer that I work with.

Let me know what you think or if you have a question!
