Happy 1st week of Daylight Savings everyone!
Not sure how you feel about the early changeover, but I’m ambivalent. I like it and I hate it. I like having all those extra hours of sunlight, but I just hate getting up in the dark. It takes me weeks to get my body clock adjusted.
I’m sort of in the same boat with my newest Night Guardian series release from Silhouette Romantic Suspense…
SHADOW SURRENDER by Linda Conrad
The Night Guardians are a Navajo Brotherhood. They keep watch in the night against the evil Skinwalkers!
In SHADOW SURRENDER, he’d dreamed about her…
Navajo medicine man Lucas Tso had a special gift—psychic powers, coupled with vivid dreams about a mysterious woman. But when he came face-to-face with her, he wasn’t prepared for the feelings that stirred within him. FBI agent Teal Benaly was investigating a murder on the reservation, and Lucas wanted to protect her from the evil shapeshifters that had declared war on the Navajo people. Dark forces tempted him to their side, and he’d need Teal’s help—and her love—to keep him alive.

Now on the one hand, I love this book. The hero, Lucas Tso, is my first real Beta hero and I matched him up with a strong but vulnerable FBI agent heroine. And this story is the most paranormal of all the Night Guardians to date. That makes the book unique for me and I feel protective about it. I even wrote in my first childhood pet, a black cat named Snow. And…I don’t absolutely hate the cover this time. Okay, it really doesn’t say it all and it’s a funny shade of gray, but it’s not the worst I’ve had.
On the other hand, there’s the bad (you knew it was coming, right?) Somehow two printers’ errors found their way into the book. Not just little errors, mind you. But in two chapters the last few lines have been totally left out! How embarrassing!
You can read the missing lines on my website: http://www.lindaconrad.com/bookshelf/shadowsurrender.html#missing
I suppose I will learn to live with the printers errors. Just like I’ll soon adjust to Daylight Savings Time. Maybe Shadow Surrender will even turn out to be special all because of the errors. Who knows, years from now your copy may be worth thousands! (Don’t we wish)
Meanwhile, I’ve got a brand new graphics on my website and a brand new crossword puzzle for those of you who love them. I’m also running a contest for a chance to win autographed copies of the first five books in the Night Guardian series, along with a Barnes and Noble gift certificate in order to buy more books!
