Giveaway and Guest Post with Regina Carlysle and her book Mad Moon


Thanks for having me here today to talk about my new Ellora’s Cave release, Mad Moon.  If years ago someone would’ve told me that I would one day write erotic paranormal stories, I’d have had a good laugh about that. I guess one should never say never because after having a serious  ‘stall out’ with some of my contemporary stories, an author friend suggested I just needed to try writing something different. Four days later, I had completed and submitted Feral Moon (a panther-shifter ménage plus) to my Ellora’s Cave editor.  To this day, it remains one of my bestselling books and set me on my current path of exploring the worlds of shifters.  My shifter worlds include jaguars (ménage), panthers (ménage for only a little while) and my High Plains Shifters wolves (strictly m/f stories) and all can be found at Ellora’s Cave.

I’ve written a number of genres in my career, including erotic regency and contemporary western but, by far, I have the most fun creating sexy, shifter worlds. Mad Moon is the latest installment in the HPS series and I’m tickled to death to add the sixth book to this popular line-up. Living in West Texas for so many, many years, it seemed only natural that I build an entire town and populate it with wolf-shifters. These folks are not only cowboys and ranchers but own businesses, teach school and drill for oil on the vast West Texas plains. They have their own mythos, history, and celebrations giving them lives that, on the outside, might seem relatively human but with a twist…they are wolves. After Lawman (book five), I knew that expanding this world was something I needed to do in order to continue this series so set Mad Moon in East Texas. Madden is High Alpha of the Rogues and in his story, he rules his pack while co-existing with the human population of Sweetridge. This can be a bit tricky. Mad Moon incorporates past heroes (and heroines) from the Wolf Creek Pack of West Texas and introduces several other characters who are already whispering in my ear. They want their stories told and I’m ready to do it. 






Mad Moon

Book 6, High Plains Shifters

Madden Moon knows what she is the second she walks into the old café. Shifter. Wolf. Trouble. Struck by her beauty and the air of exhaustion about her, the leader of the Texas Rogues, wishes her straight out of town but as the mating energy of their species sizzles between them and her enemies approach, he has no alternative but to bring the beautiful lycan under his protection and into his bed.

Runaway Lana Vronski is in big trouble. As she races through the woods, local wolves in hot pursuit, she believes all is lost until she is rescued by oh-so-sexy Madden. When he offers her sanctuary and sex hot enough to burn them both, she accepts his proposal but it isn’t until the mating heat between them begins to sizzle wildly out of control that Lana learns her true salvation awaits in his arms. Lana’s enemies are relentless, however, and will stop at nothing as they attempt to rip her from the arms of the man she loves.

About the Author:

 I grew up in small town Oklahoma then moved to Texas  where I lived for over thirty years.  Once upon a time I worked as a newspaper journalist, as a public relations director for a university,  and other assorted things but these days I am an award winning, multi-published author.

 I like writing that is hot, edgy, and often humorous, and try to put this trademark stamp on all of my stories. These days I live in sunny Florida where I find the temps ‘heat up’ my creative urges.  I am a doting, fawning, and over-indulgent mom to my two adult children and believe them to be the coolest people in the world.

 When I’m not penning steamy erotic tales set in  paranormal worlds or writing hot contemporary books (usually featuring a cowboy or two) I  indulge in long chats with friends who help me stay sane and keep me laughing. Wanna be my friend forever? Make me laugh.
