Book Tour & Giveaway (US/Int): Jeffe Kennedy shares her favorite heroes


Please help me welcome author Jeffe Kennedy!

It’s fun to have the old year end and see all the “favorites” and “best of” pop up for the previous year. Especially when something I’ve written shows up in the lists! 😉

2012 was a good year for me – and the first time that my work showed up in the favorites lists. A couple of review blogs put ROGUE’S PAWN as one of their favorite reads of 2012 – something that I just feel so flattered by, given all the fabulous reads out there – but the one that really tickled me was Rogue being picked as one of the best book boyfriends.

Because he totally is for me.

I suppose that’s true for all writers of anything with any romantic elements – we all have to be at least a little in love with our heroes. But I deliberately wrote Rogue to work out a particular fantasy. He has the brooding depths of Heathcliff, the looks and power of Roarke, the saucy sexuality of Bones, the inscrutability of Mr. Darcy, the alpha-male determination of F’lar, the steadfast loyalty-when-you-least expect-it of Joscelin Verreuil, the wily strength of Sterling Packard, the tortured magic of Vanyel, the irreverent vitality of Lestat and the cursed tragedy of the Beast.

Did you get all those? I ranged quite a bit over the space-time continuum. Did you have to Google any of them? Be honest!

In fact for the giveaway – a free copy of Rogue’s Pawn, in the e-format of your choice – comment and tell me how many of those you knew and have read. (One of them is kind of a multi-source gimme, but any version is fine by me.)

Let’s hear it for book boyfriends!

This is no fairy tale…

Haunted by nightmares of a black dog, sick to death of my mind-numbing career and heart-numbing fiancé, I impulsively walked out of my life—and fell into Faerie. Terrified, fascinated, I discover I possess a power I can’t control: my wishes come true. After an all-too-real attack by the animal from my dreams, I wake to find myself the captive of the seductive and ruthless fae lord Rogue. In return for my rescue, he demands an extravagant price—my firstborn child, which he intends to sire himself…

With no hope of escaping this world, I must learn to harness my magic and build a new life despite the perils—including my own inexplicable and debilitating desire for Rogue. I swear I will never submit to his demands, no matter what erotic torment he subjects me to…

About the author

Jeffe Kennedy took the crooked road to writing, stopping off at neurobiology, religious studies and environmental consulting before her creative writing began appearing in places like Redbook, Puerto del Sol, Wyoming Wildlife, Under the Sun and Aeon. An erotic novella, Petals and Thorns, came out under her pen name of Jennifer Paris in 2010, heralding yet another branch of her path, into erotica and romantic fantasy fiction. Since then, an erotic short, Feeding the Vampire, and another erotic novella, Sapphire, have hit the shelves.

Her contemporary fantasy novel, Rogue’s Pawn, book one in A Covenant of Thorns, will be published in July, 2012. Jeffe lives in Santa Fe, with two Maine coon cats, a border collie, plentiful free-range lizards and frequently serves as a guinea pig for an acupuncturist-in-training.
