Embrace a little Darkness Back to Blog

Update:  The blog winner is Lisa Freeman! Congrats, Lisa!

What is it about dark edgy men that we love so?  Is it the fact that we like a little roughness around the edges?  A bit of friction to make things interesting?

I think women like a challenge and what better challenge is there than a bad boy?  A man with dark secrets and a past that may be questionable.

In my latest book, His Darkest Embrace, my hero Jagger is such a man.  He’s a jaguar warrior and carries with him the sins of his past.  He’s dark, edgy and passionate.  It will take one hell of a woman to break through the barriers he’s erected around his heart and soul.

A solitary hunter with no regard for the human world, Jagger Castille is a shifter living on the edge. It will take the woman who calls him enemy to give him a reason to live.

Jagger is a creature of the night—Skye Knightly soars in the sun. Natural adversaries, they have been joined by destiny in a mission entrusted to Skye’s family centuries ago: Nothing less than the salvation of the Earth.

Wounded and bitter, Jagger sought escape in the solitude of the jungle, driven by a need to disappear forever… until a mysterious shifter who calls to his soul and feeds a yearning long forgotten, pulls him from his dark path. A courageous warrior, Skye’s passion is equal to Jagger’s own—but can she trust a man on the edge? A man whose secrets are as devastating as her own?

Each is the other’s sole hope for survival. But a dark and twisted truth is leading them toward the ultimate sacrifice for a love they may never live to claim.

Watch the video trailer here!  His Darkest Embrace or read the first 4 chapters online HERE

Tell me what it is you like about bad boys…and I’ll give one random commentator a copy of my latest book in the jaguar warriors trilogy, His Darkest Embrace.

  20. Pamk says:

    They make the best good guys after being reformed but you always have that little bite of badness left over.

  24. Edie Ramer says:

    I think bad boys give off more testosterone. Makes it hard to resist them.

  25. Jillian says:

    Nothing like a bad boy. They always treat the woman of their dreams like a princess and are the best protectors.

    Love the cover!

    I like bad boys because when they fall, they fall hard. No one gets in their way when they have what they want and love.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  28. Justine R. says:

    I love bad boys because they’re so damn sexy *grin* Even the dentist in Little Shop of Horrors was kind of sexy, though he was a b**tard for beating on Audrey all the time.

  29. Donna S says:

    They really tend to do the unexpected, and there really is nothing sexier than a bad boy doing good.

  30. cories5 says:

    The attraction of bad boys is the hint of danger and naughtiness. The confidence and testosterone don’t hurt either.

  31. Pam P says:

    I love that edginess and sense of danger and mystery, all that ego and confidence, yet so many layers of them to discover or bring to the surface; that they bring out a bit of the wild side in ourselves.

  32. sue brandes says:

    Bad boys are sexy, mysterious, dangerous, smart@sses,fun.

  33. Bad boys are sexy, yet vulnerable.

  34. Jessie W. says:

    There is nothing sexy and sweet than a bad boy showing that one (usually small) moment of softness or vulnerability. Love em!

  35. Cynthia Eden says:

    Hi, Juliana! Thanks so much for blogging with me!

  36. desiree says:

    There is always something vulnerable about the bad boy. And they are usually the really sexy ones that make it hard to maintain normal breathing while around them.

  37. CatsMeow says:

    Just look at the cover of this book. WooHoo!!! Double Hawt! and from the summary, it sounds like the two main characters need each other.
