Howard Barr Revealed!

Congratulations to Jessica from Tennessee!  She has won the two signed books. Thank you all for the comments! I'm so happy you love the cover! Please come back next month on the 25th for another contest!

Here it is!! The cover for Howard's book, Wild About You!  As you can see, our big hunky were-bear has found a woman. And what a handsome guy Howard is!  Thick brown hair, blazing blue eyes, lots of muscles, and...gray skin?  Is he part alien? No, he's just our sweet honey bear.  Whenever he shifts into a Kodiak bear, or back to human, he turns gray for a moment.

This is the stepback (or second cover) for Wild About You.  Howard looks yummier than a bear claw! Wild About You releases November 27th.  I know, it's a long wait.  Howard says the time will go faster if you enjoy a few donuts and bear claws. I think it will go faster if you get a chance to win a nifty prize.

So I'm offering two books this month-- Sexiest Vampire Alive, starring Gregori, and Born at Midnight, the first book in a fabulous YA series by C.C. Hunter. International entries are welcome. Just leave a comment for Howard to be entered. Good luck!

Howard. Yum. Yum. Makes me want to get some honey and tempt the guy. Either that or get a truckload of bearclaws. lol

I have been reading and waiting for Howard to get his own book! He has always been this big cuddly bear that loves donuts. After reading about him in your last book I almost cried for him. So when I found out that this book was about him I did a little happy dance!
He looks very handsome for the cover, But he was always Been handsome in my mind just because he always been a very caring and sweet guy that as strong as a Bear!! :)

You don't have to put my name in the hat for the books I already have them (unless they come signed).
Thank You from a faithful fan!!

Mindy said...

The cover for Wild About You is totally AWESOME! When can we expect to start seeing excerpts?
I can't wait for November to read Howard's story.
Have you decided whose story is after Howard's?

Ms. KERRY!!!!

I LOVE YOU MORE EVERY BOOOK!!! My best friends and I started reading from the beginning with 'How to Win a Millionaire Vampire' and thought it would just be a regular wannabe something vampire novel like so many are. BUT WE WERE SO PROVEN WRONG! From the first page we have been HOOKED to the whole gang! I ABSOLUTELY can't wait to read Howard's book and start your new series.

Kerrelyn you ROCK! Like a lot of people I started out reading "Twilight" and then branched out. One day I go into Barnes & Noble and see an end-cap with your books displayed. I didn't lnow if I'd like it so I just fot one and it was "Forbidden Nights With A Vampire". I couldn't out it down. I went back the next day and bought the whole series that had been released so far at that time. I now have a Kindle and I had to buy all the books for my Kindle and I have re-read them so many times. I actually just went through them again! You are my absolute FAVORITE author. Behind you comes Lynsay Sands and Jeaniene Frost but you blow them out of the water. Your stories are not only extremely HOT they have heart as well. They also can cheer me up when I'm down. You cover all the emotions we go through when falling in love. I love that you don't throw too many problems at the couples that you can't wait for the book to end like some authors. I can't wait to be entertained another time by you with Howard's story! I was wondering since Marta was transformed at the age of 15 will she take Roman's Stay-Awake drug to age so that she can find her true love? I think you should also write Sean Whelan's story with him and his wife reconsiling and Sean's attitude getting a complete overhaul! Love you and your complete genius with the written word! Please don't ever stop entertaining the masses!
