RBTL Present Chosen for Blood by Tamela Maloney Blog Tour

Title: Chosen for Blood

Author: Tamela Maloney

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Publisher: Self Published

Release Date: Dec 20 2013

            Being a beautiful competitive standout in a male dominant territory would be any feminists dream until it gets you noticed by the wrong man. Robyn Woods survives hair raising predicaments when she turns away from a handsome alpha that has chosen her. She discovers how complicated life can get when the werewolf and her would be mother-in-law take a bite out of all her plans.
      Twenty-two year old college star athlete, Robyn Woods, is approached at the campus gym late one night by an obvious admirer but she can’t help but notice he’s not looking at the usual curves most men pay attention to. His eyes are scrolling over her biceps, six pack abs and even the muscles on her legs seem to please him. As if this moment couldn’t get any more awkward than it already has, he then asks her if she is an alpha, beta or omega. “Whatever happened to guys asking you for your number?”
    She doesn’t have much time to process the question as she senses the energy in the air beginning to stir. She feels the hair on the back of her neck flare up and she pans around the room. The intentions of her new admirer no longer concern her due to her father’s unexpected visit. The uncomfortable feeling of being on edge is replaced by a very bad feeling in her bones, “What’s happened?” she wonders.
    After getting the mother of all bombs dropped on her, she throws herself into her workouts as a way to deal with her mother’s death and the fact that her father and sister have already moved to a new town without her. A monthly membership to a gym is much cheaper than therapy these days. 
    As the semester comes to an end and the summer begins, she joins them. Robyn realizes that in the two months’ time they’ve lived there, her father not only knows everyone but everyone seems to know him, too well, and the weirdness begins.
    His reason for moving them there was for safety concerns, after all her mother’s murderer was never caught. But as Robyn gets to know the area and the people in it she learns her father has moved them to a town where girls are disappearing left and right.
    Robyn has always thought her father’s life was routine, boring and mediocre but now she knows not everything is how it seems. And what’s up with her senses? Not only are they on high alert 24/7 but they are empowering her in ways that even she knows is not normal.
    The aggressiveness in Robyn finds a competitor to square off with. Her sister’s new boyfriend is not only good looking but he is well preserved with a set of fangs! Robyn feels sucker punched when she finds out that not only does her sister know her boyfriend shouldn’t exist but she’s digging it too!
     Aggravated with the secrets that have been kept from her, Robyn is ready to pull up stakes and head back to her hometown for good but another pair of fangs takes a bite out of her plans.
     A very powerful alpha werewolf who has put off choosing a mate up until now has taken an interest in her. Robyn’s mentality is put to the real test when she helps unravel the mystery of the girls’ disappearing and comes to the realization that she is no match for the werewolf or her soon to be mother-in-law.
    Encouraged by his mother, the alpha male has forced Robyn to be a part of his life, pack life.  When her father finds out she has been bitten by him he does the only thing he can think of to save her and that’s to challenge the alpha for the rights to his own daughter. Eric Elder, a vampire whose power is equal to that in status of the werewolf that has bitten Robyn, shocks everyone with his sudden interest in helping his loyal guardian’s daughter. Robyn questions Eric’s intentions and denies him the trust that is needed to see his plan through. Her father’s brave attempt and Eric’s generosity changes the fate of all their lives and leaves everyone including the vampires and werewolves of the community wondering one thing, “Will she or will she not turn?”

Author Information

Tamela Maloney wasn’t what you would call an army brat growing up but she sure moved around a lot like one.  Although she made friends wherever her family lived she would still get bored.  To keep herself company until the next move she would daydream about imaginary playmates in other worlds filled with plenty of monsters.  Today she’s forty-something and has plenty of friends, “all real!” she’s happy to report.  However, she daydreams more now than ever before.  “There are some people who live in a dream world and there are some who face reality.  I decided to turn one into the other and they mesh well for me!”  She didn’t always have time for writing, she use to sit down at a desk in a small office for a while until she had an epiphany.  At the end of the day she didn’t feel good enough about herself.  “Anybody could do what I did, it wasn’t enough for me.”  So with wanting to make a difference, she found a job that allowed her to do just that.  She now works with children with special needs.  Although it’s not as financially rewarding as her desk job was it is emotionally rewarding.  “It feels good to know that I help make a child’s day easier and more enjoyable.”  So along with being a hobby writer and a Good Samaritan she is also a wife and a mother of two or four if you count the dogs.  She has a long list of loves and likes, but an even longer list of hates.  She admits she’s a creature of habit and doesn’t like her routine fudged with.  Here’s a few that round off the top of all three.  For one, she’s an internet nut but yet electronically challenged.  She hates technology; it’s a flaw of hers that drives her husband batty.  Second, she likes popcorn and peanut butter—not together though.  Last but not least, she loves life, her family, things that make her go “hmm..,” lemon in her water and dachshunds.  “My wiener, Moose, is a werewolf at heart.  He’s my biggest supporter.  My other wiener Libby doesn’t get it.  She doesn’t understand why Moose wants to sit next to me while I bang away on the square black thing with the long cord she can’t chew on.”  You can find her book, Chosen for Blood, on Amazon.  Book two, not yet titled, is in the works.

I scaled back over the pillar and carefully climbed down the waterfall. I started making my way back to the fence when I felt a flare of cold chills go down my arms, legs, and back. I suddenly felt threatened, like I needed to prepare myself. Then the hairs stood up on the back of my neck. This was a stupid idea to have come out here alone and I looked at my bat for reassurance. Since I had it with me I didn’t understand why I felt so vulnerable.
Another round of goose bumps went down my body, this time a wave of extreme danger came over me. Something inside me took over and my body reacted in sync to it. A course of energy flowed through me and I felt like I needed to advance towards the fence as quick as possible. Dad won’t forgive me for this; mom was killed in the woods, I felt so thoughtless and selfish. I was out here because my father told me not to. How juvenile is that? To think I made the comment earlier about how Raylyn shouldn’t be doing things she knows she’s not supposed to. Look at me; I’m twenty-two and doing the same thing.

I was about to step off the last rock when I heard the water splashing. My senses told me that the sound I was hearing was wrong and I instantly knew why. Whatever was splashing in the water was getting closer to me. I couldn’t turn around to see, I needed to watch my footing on the rocks. I went to draw my foot back to maneuver around better so I could use my weight when I jumped up onto the bank, hopefully missing the mud altogether. But the moment I reared my foot back, I don’t know what happened, because the feeling that rushed through me was one I never had before. I no longer felt like danger was approaching me, I felt the danger standing behind me. I could sense the change of energy in the air, it was electrified. I realized my senses were the ones taking over and I trusted them. In one motion I leaped up onto the bank and grabbed a branch to pull myself up the rest of the way. My senses were also telling me that I wasn’t out of danger yet, the threat was still here and I needed to turn around and face it. I was ready to find out what it was they were reacting so strongly to. So I did and it was clear to me that there wasn’t anything dad could have signed me up for that would have prepared me for this. I was definitely in a compromising situation.

My Review:

  I enjoyed the book. I have to say there were a few parts I wished the author had elaborated a little.  I personally didn't feel as though this was a romance book. I felt it was more of just a parnanormal book. The book did offer an unique story which I have to say I did enjoy. After the first few pages the story really came together. I think this author has a lot to offer the parnanormal readers

Messenger is the first prequel to the bestselling Guardian Trilogy - the breathtaking romantic saga about a love that has lasted centuries between a Messenger and her Guardian.


He strode to me and crouched at my hip. His shirt was
already off and the nearness of his well-built chest made it a challenge to
stop myself from glancing at it. To my astonishment, he seemed not to notice my
internal plight, not even the tremble that shook me when he tenderly took my
chin and turned it toward him.
"You're healing nicely," he observed,
concentrating on my forehead.
"Mm-hmm." It was all I could muster.
This was the closest we had ever been. His lips were no more
than a few inches from me and drew my attention.
"I don't think you'll even scar."
When I didn't answer, I felt a shift in his presence and my
eyes darted up to find him staring back with his striking blue-green eyes.
We froze in place.
Only our chests rose and fell, and they did it more rapidly
the longer we stared at each other.
As his eyes lowered to my lips, his fingers tightened gently
around my chin.
The flare of his nostrils and the intensity of his stare
mesmerized me, made me want him closer. And it told me that he was struggling
too and was in profound debate over what we were doing. No ward should be this
close to their guardian, even if the ward didn't recognize them as one. It was
taboo, unheard of, an abject insult to the role the guardian had been given.
Yet, here he was, looking at me, at my lips, tensing at the sight of them.
And he wasn't alone in the struggle. For the first time, I
forgot my urge to throw him off balance, my need to establish my independence.
I was the one quickly losing my poise and forgetting who was dominant. The
charm I fought so hard to deny, the very one that drew all others to him, took
hold of me. And I gave into it out of my own free will.

Laury Falter is a bestselling author of young adult romantic suspense and urban fantasy. She is also an animal rights activist, a sailor, a one-handed golf putterer, and a Colorado River conqueror.

The sequel to the award winning, Shadow of Kings continues with Shades of Virtue.
Nearly two years have passed since the Harhn incursion. While the Hugue recovers from the devastation, the Order of the Secret Throne resumes their agenda. Lord Yannic and his armies march the breadth of the Vol Thaldane to rally the divided human fiefdoms into the new realm of Shyrlandia, while engaging the Braug tribes and Harhn Hordes still plaguing the region. And like so many wearing the heraldry of the Dragon, he must confront the Order’s agenda, and question the sacrifices to be made for the greater good.

In the Hugue, a jousting tournament is about to commence that will determine who wins Lady Basina’s hand in marriage. With the tournament Champion also foreseen to have an impact on Shyrlandia’s future, the Council of Whispers dispatch Lady Lucia and her two apprentices, Dragana and Tallya to oversee the event. But the Order is not the only party interested in the tournament. From her tower in Kethalon, Rizela, the Darkfey sorceress, conspires and schemes to manipulate the tournament for her own ends. Amidst the spectacle of pageantry and martial prowess, Lucia must uncover the dark powers wishing to thwart the Order’s agenda, while supervising her headstrong apprentices. There is more at stake than winning a lady’s hand, for whoever wins the tournament will set events in motion that will forever impact the future realm of Shyrlandia, the Vol Thaldane, and the Hugue.
