Giveaway: A look inside A Hint of Frost with author Hailey Edwards and her sexy, silk-spinning cast

A Hint of Frost (Araneae Nation #1) by Hailey Edwards
A Hint of Frost (Araneae Nation #1) by Hailey Edwards

Releasing today, A Hint of Frost is a sweet and sexy fantasy romance about a woman who’s forced to take up ruling her clan following an attack on her home, with a new ally and protector by her side.  The races are based on spiders, the characters very vivid and lovable, and the book itself is well written and just all around enjoyable.  Check out my review of it here!

Hailey Edwards creates unique settings that I love to get lost in, and has been kind enough to walk me through the Araneae world so I can get to know her and her characters a little bit better.  What started out as a fun interview, turned into an exciting short story.  You’ll find our encounter below!

Psst – the story is 5 pages long, so we have MOBI and EPUB versions for you to download for your ereader, in addition to the DOC (below the display window)…

More about A Hint of Frost…

Hope dangles by a silken thread.

Araneae Nation, Book 1

When the head of the Araneidae clan is found poisoned in her nest, her eldest daughter, Lourdes, becomes their clan’s new maven. If her clan is to survive, she has but one choice: she must marry before her nest is seized. All she needs is a warrior fierce enough to protect her city and safeguard her clansmen. Such a male is Rhys the Cold.

Born the youngest son of an impoverished maven, the only things Rhys has to his name are his sword and his mercenary reputation. His clan is starving, but their fondness for the flesh of fellow Araneaeans makes them unwelcome dinner guests. Torn between loyalty to his clan and fascination with his future bride, Rhys’s first taste of Lourdes threatens to melt the cold encasing his heart.

Amid the chaos of battle, Lourdes’s sister disappears and is feared captured. Lourdes and Rhys pursue their enemies into the southlands, where they discover an odd plague ravaging southern clans as it travels north, to Erania. Determined to survive, Lourdes will discover whether she’s worth her silk or if she’s spun the thread by which her clan will hang.

Warning: This book contains one mercenary hero with a biting fetish, one determined heroine who gets nibbled, and an answer to the age-old question, “What does dragon taste like?” Matricide and sibling rivalry are available upon request. The house special is revenge, best served cold.

About the author…

Hailey is a wife turned mother turned writer, who loves her husband, her daughter and alone time with her computer. Whenever southern living strikes her as too ordinary, she can be found squinting at her monitor as she writes her next happily-ever-after or with her nose glued to her Kindle’s screen. Wings and/or cupcakes are usually involved…

She loves to hear from readers. Drop her a line here.
