One of my favorite things about writing stories is that I get to explore so many different types of heroines, all of them fascinating in their own way. Since this hop is devoted to kickass heroines, I want to share with you one of my favorite kickass heroines from one of my favorite authors, and then tell you a little about two of the heroines I’ve written about.
Kate Daniels, heroine of the urban fantasy series by Ilona Andrews, is awesome. I loved her from the first time I read about her in Magic Bites when she faced down The Beast Lord, Cullen (who was scary at first but became an oh-so-hot love interest). Later, she fought in the pits and had to consider making a huge sacrifice in order to save her friends. I could go on, but you get the idea. (And I’m trying SO hard not to give up any spoilers.) She’s tough, she fights, she cares. She’s awesome.
In my book, Her Scottish Alpha, the heroine Keira Harlow and her sister Gillian (heroine of the yet-to-be-published His Dragon Heart) are twins who are Dragon Slayers. They burst into the scene brandishing guns and long, wicked knives and refusing to take ‘no’ for an answer. Keira and Gill are two of my kickass heroines. 🙂

But first, I have a new release out called A Minor Shift. This kicks off a new series called White Fir Bend Cult, and is free on all stores. The heroine, Eva, doesn’t get to kick much ass in this short story, but she could. Check out an excerpt below!
Excerpt from A Minor Shift
Bowie Garrison couldn’t get Eva out of his mind. He’d tried, over and over, but ever since they met in Afghanistan she’d driven all thoughts of any other woman out of his mind. And when she’d left to return to the States, he’d felt the loss far more than he should.
For that reason alone, the last thing he should do is contact her.
Her face had haunted his dreams for months, her face and her lusciously curvy body and her sleek, long black hair. Her dark eyes had taunted him.
He sat on the couch and gazed at his phone, her number already keyed in, just waiting for him to push the button. He wanted to see her again. Was that really so bad?
His buddy Kane jostled his arm. They sat side by side in the common room of their temporary lodgings while Kane played a video game on the TV directly opposite them. Kane looked squared away, as usual. He might be hanging out with nowhere to go but he still wore an ironed T-shirt and jeans, his short dark hair neatly trimmed. “Aren’t you playing?”
“Not now.” Bowie had a decision to make, and obliterating aliens wouldn’t help. Should he call her? Would it drive him stark, raving mad if he didn’t?
The first in a brand new series from New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Tabitha Conall…
BBW shifter Eva Ross wants to climb the ranks at the FBI and she’s on her way. A romance could put a huge wrench in her plans, so she turns down lion shifter and Army Ranger Bowie Garrison by telling him she’s already got a date.
She didn’t expect to wake the lion. Now Bowie’s coming for her and it’ll be all she can do to resist him…and her traitorous heart.
A Minor Shift is FREE on all stores.
