A Time to Give Thanks

Congratulations to Michelle from Rhode Island who won both signed books! Thank you all for dropping by and leaving wonderful comments! I'll be back Dec. 25th (Merry Christmas!) with another blog and contest. Happy Holidays!

I'm writing this the day before Thanksgiving, determined that on Friday when this posts I will be thankful I didn't overeat. Ha! We'll see how that goes!

I'm always thankful for all of you readers who continue to buy the Love at Stake series. And to show my gratitude, I'm giving away two books today. Which two? Well, they were inspired by this photo.

My son's wedding occurred on 11/11/11, and we ended up dog-sitting their pet while they were busy with last minute wedding preparations and then their honeymoon. My daughter came home from college for the wedding, bringing her pet kitty, so we ended up with two animals who glared at each other for hours through the back door. It made me think of the tensions that might go on at the Dragon Nest Academy where you have were-panther kids mixed with werewolf boys. Could be a lot of hissing and growling going on!

Which side would you be on? The wolves or the cats? Can't decide? Then you'll need to read werewolf Phil's story, Forbidden Nights with a Vampire, and were-panther Carlos's story, Eat Prey Love. I'm giving away both books, signed, to one lucky winner. International entries welcome. Just leave a comment, telling me which side you're on. Good luck!

I have three cats, so... I'd have to go with the cats - smart, strong, sneaky, resilient, with fangs and claws.

I have to stay loyal to my own, so it's got to be the cats! lol.

Seduced By Books said...

oooh that is a tough one - i love my wolves - but i gotta say - cats are so smooth and i'm going with them

Pamela Overstreet said...

I would have to say the cats! I LOVE both books, and enjoy them every time I read them, but there is just something about the graceful, stealthy purrrr-suit of the were-panther that just makes it intriguing!

jfort357 said...

Hmm....I would have to go with werewolves!!! :-)

Amy Valentini said...

Kerrelyn, that's a toughie since I'm a great dog lover but I do love the BIG cats, they are soooo sexy. I've always said that cats are the boss of dogs, so I suspect the cat would have won in your case but ... hmmm, well, my Rottie Marco would probably never cuddle with me again if I said cat ... so dogs/wolves it is! : )

snulfers said...

Werewolves would be my pick.

alainala said...

and i LOVE carlos' story.. would adore to have a signed copy! thanks for the contest!

Margay said...

I've read about wolves, but not about cats, so I think I'd definitely like to try cats for once! Plus, I am a cat lover (I have two).

It would have to be wolves. I just adore them...LOL

I'm with the pussy cats... and I'd love to win both of your books to add to my home library (1300 books and growing).

Judy DV said...

That is a hard choice as I like both Phil and Carlos but there is something about a beautiful sleek black panther that just pulls me towards that side a bit more.

My thought was exactly that when I saw that picture!

Adaiah said...

I'm a cat person. Yes they're refered to spawn of Satan. lol But I so love my lycans! The McKays rokwith their kilts!

Kathryn Merkel said...

I've got to go with Wolves, since I'm really drawn to the idea of pack & canines seem to crave attention from people so much more than cats.

VampLuv said...

You make Carlos sound so damn sexy! I am team werepanthers!

Barbara E. said...

I like both cats and dogs, but I'm a little more partial to the kitties, so I'm on team Carlos. Yeah for were-panthers.

Barbed1951 at aol dot com

Joanne said...

I love Carlo’s sexiness!! He’s graceful, sleek and smooth.. with nine lives and keeps getting larger and larger? Cats it is =) Were-panthers are cunning and witty!

KhelseyJackson said...

I am on the cats side!The are so much sexier :D

Yep-I have to side with the wolves!The cats have to many advantages.

Michelle Cowles said...

Kerrelyn,

I'm a veterinary foster mom for cats and kittens. I love their cunning and "I will not dignify that with a response" attitudes!!! Cats all the way! We like to think we are the ones in charge, but they just manipulate us into thinking so....lol

WildAboutBones said...

Wow! That's a hard one. I think both Phil and Carlos are sexy critters. Soooo, why either or? I'll take both!
Hope your Thanksgiving holiday was a safe and enjoyable one.
Thanks for the offer of a giveaway.

Teresa K. said...

Oh Kerre,

That's a hard one because I love Phil and I love Carlos.

However if I had to choose I would have to go with Carlos because he's Tall, Lean, Dark, Handsome and very sexy. I also love his attitude. Remember how he was on the beach, when Robbie was trying to court his love. He was going to scare her so she would run to Robbie. Pretty snarky if you ask me.

I think that there would be a tremendous fight ending in a truce. Both are loveable in their own ways. I would want either of them to protect me.

(Publishing a second time as I am not sure that the first one went through)

Wolves all the way! :)

Brenda Hyde said...

I've got to go with the cats. I have 3 housecats inside, and our house is a magnet for every stray in the area. I will say though that one can never truly understand cats. They simply grace us with their presense:) LOL

I have never watched someone elses pet, but I imagine it's very interesting:)

Skip said...

I have 4 cats & 1 dog ... to be honest they are both wonderful and loving. I'd have to say I'd be for both of them. I have a soft spot for cats but the wolves are my tattoos so definitely both. Can't choose one or the other.

June M. said...

I have always loved Phil so I will have to go with the wolves. I do love Carlos too.

When I was young Cats (plual) were my best friends. They were their on individuals and though they loved and loved deeply when it was time to go . . . they went coming back just to say hello every once in awhile. Now that I'm old (as my students often remind me) my Puppy (7-year old puppy) is my true compainion. Her love is deep and ever lasting. And she is always there when I need a hug and someone to talk to. Cat or Pup there both dedicated to the ones they love so either would do! Too bad the two legged ones who don't shift are as true!

marycay12@aol.com said...

yep, i'm that dreaded fence hugger. can't make up mind which way to fall. my problem is that i love all your books. they keep getting better & better.

Stephanie said...

It's a tough choice, but I would go with the cats.

Skk25@aol.com

Beach said...

My O My how can I take sides when both are very sexy! The tug off war in my head over which side to pick is a tie! They both have my heart! Please dont ask me to pick, because I have one of those hearts that just can't choose one over the other. See what happens when you write such great characters!!

host said...

I'm with the cats :)

Nikki Partain said...

I am totally on the Were-Panthers side, normally i would be on the wolves side but being there is more of them around the world i feel a duty to be on the Were-Panthers side cause they need more. Also because im totally in love with Carlos..HA HA

Judy M said...

I have 2 dogs and six cats, so I could go either way.
Thanksgiving is also my favorite holiday, all that is expected is to cook and eat.
I loved Eat Prey Love, I have read it at least twice, I haven't read Forbidden Nights yet, but I like Phil, he is a great guy.

Anonymous said...

I have to say I'm on the werewolf side cause I have 6 dogs and your books are awesome ^__^

Both wolves and panthers are beautiful in their own way, including Phil and Carlos. I love both wolves and panthers, because of their beauty. Panthers or cats in general I found to be more sleek and sexy. If I had chose between, which Were I want to be I would choose some form of cat like a panther. But the pages in Forbidden Nights with a Vampire were more hotter.

Hemmm interesting question ms. Spark. Honestly I'm pretty confused which side I should pick:) but because I'm allergic w cat maybe wolf would be a better choice. I kinda like the idea of werewolf, mature, cool n sophisticated :)anonymous aretha_zhen@yahoo.com

Diana said...

It would the the panthers for me :) Carlos for sure!

Martha Lawson said...

I love them both!! Books sound great, I'd love to be entered to win!

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

I can't decide! Hot alpha were is fine with me... I don't mind which furry creature he turns into... ;D

Laurie said...

Loved both books and I have to say that either one would be just fine with me. So I really can't decide.

Cheri said...

Why decide, when I can love both?

CrystalGB said...

I like them both. Love the covers to your books. Thanks for the giveaway.

Nancy G said...

Cats all the way with me.

Cylver said...

I'm a dog person by nature, so I'd have to go with the wolves. Just don't tell Oscar, my huge yellow feline fluffball! Of course, if a sexy werepanther showed up at my door with roses and THAT look, well, I don't think I could say no!

Haha the cat looks vicious! Poor dog :( :P

Asleep By Dawn said...

Team Kitteh all the way! I adore wolves. They are so mysterious. But the cat is my familiar, my soul mate. Yes, we are definitely kindred spirits.

Helen Lowe said...

Can one say 'yea, I say yea' to both? Hope you didn't overeat, Kerrelyn! :)

Anonymous said...

This is way too hard as I like both-wolves for their strength and power and panthers for their sleekness and speed.

catslady said...

Althought I love both, I just have to vote for the cats lol. Looking at your picture, I think that cat would win hands down!!!

Sharon said...

clever idea for a contest I am a dog person so I will go with the wolves!!! thanks :)

Eli Yanti said...

thanks for your kind to give two of your books :)

Put me on the side of the cats!!

Arely said...

Argg I love both!! Maybe wolves are slightly higher on the list. Maybe ;)

KRYONpop said...

This is actually very unfair!!! I've got to admit, these two are the hottest- in my opinion. I'm an animal lover but sometimes I always tend to side with my pet dogs... By cats are just spoiled and in spite that I also spoil my dogs they don't act spoiled at all... But either way I love them to pieces just as I love the series... But when it comes to sensuality I've got to side on the panthers because they're by nature purrrrfect in the category of sensuality and sexuality.... Hotness

I love all animals, cat included, but I am highly allergic to them.

So I just have dogs and love them to bits so I come down on the canine side and vote for wolves !

I have to say I loved both stories, but if I had to choose I think it would have to be cats. I am a dog person, but that story was just one of my favorites. Though this is a very tough competition. I wish I could say I choose both cause they are both just soooo GOOD!!!!!!

SandyG265 said...

I have to go with the wolves.

Anonymous said...

I've always seen myself as a tiger or mountain lion. I'm a person that for some reason puts myself in the book to relate to the characters. So when I read books with shifters in it that what I always see myself as. I know the contest is over but I needed to put in my two cents. Congrats to the winners!
