A New Paranormal Anthology Features A Story From Karen Chance


Today we're celebrating the release of the MAMMOTH BOOK OF PARANORMAL ROMANCE 2 which includes Karen Chance's story "The Gauntlet."

This exciting follow-up to the successful MAMMOTH BOOK OF PARANORMAL ROMANCE contains more than twenty stories to take you to another time and place. Including the best names in the field, this collection is filled with mythical beasts, magical creatures of all shapes and sizes, handsome ghosts, angels, and mortals with extra-sensory perception that play out their extraordinary desires. It includes stories from Lara Adrian, Ava Gray, Karen Chance, Gail Carriger, S.J. Day, and many more.

"The Gauntlet" is New York Times Bestselling author Karen Chance's contribution to the MAMMOTH BOOK OF PARANORMAL ROMANCE 2. Set in the Englad of Elizabeth I, it features Kit Marlowe as a newly created vampire and Gillian Urswick, a witch with a penchant for highway robbery. That little hobby landed her in trouble with the Silver Circle, the self-appointed guardians of the magical community. They don't like thieves, particularly not when they're also members of the Druid covens that have been nothing but thorns in their side. Now Gillian has a date with a noose and only Marlowe has a chance of breaking her out of the Circle's high security prison in time.

Note: "The Gauntlet" is the companion story to "The Queen's Witch," a short available for FREE on Karen Chance's website.

  2. Morning Karen! Super congrats on having your story included in this fantastic anthology!

    And super thanks for putting this story up for FREE on your website, along with several others! YOU ROCK!!

    And I saw on your website that the next Cassie Palmer story has a release date of June 2011 - that's great - at least now we can start the count down!

    Btw, I also loved your new character profiles on your Freebie page - I love how your two different series have some cross over characters.

    Have a great one!

  3. It's nice to get some of the backstory on the characters from the Cassndra Palmer series and a short story/novella is the perfect length.

  18. congrats on your new release, as soon as I'm done here, I'm heading to your website :) I haven't really read a lot of anthologies, mostly because I want the story to be longer. I guess that's good though because it means you have me hooked and I'm not ready for it to end.
