Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs

Another year another book signing tour.

I look upon these tours as a mixed blessing. I love meeting readers, I love traveling -- and this year my husband is coming with me which makes everything better. It's just that the meeting readers and the traveling is very . . . concentrated. By the last stop (happily a local stop) I'll be barely coherent and having difficulty remembering how to spell my name.

But it means that Frost Burned is out. I am very happy with this book (I am always happy with my book or it wouldn't be coming out). This is my thriller story -- a thriller with werewolves and vampires. There are some new people in Frost Burned and some familiar friends (and enemies) who haven't been on the menu for a while. We find out a little more about how Mercy's powers work and some things that she won't ever try again. I also got to write two chapters from Adam's point of view--which was way fun.

Hopefully you'll enjoy my little tale, and after I get back from the tour I'll be hard at it, playing with my imaginary friends.

Good reading,
Patty (Patricia) Briggs

Frost Burned
Mercy Thompson returns in the seventh novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.
Mercy Thompson’s life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman—the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack—has made her a stepmother to his daughter Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy’s life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more…
After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can’t reach Adam—or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They’ve all been abducted.
Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam’s disappearance may be related—and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.

Love this cover! Mercy does not
look like a lady one would wish
to mix with!

Vampires and werewolves all in one book...that's what I'm talking about. Love it!
