Celebrating Two New Shifter Stories From Desiree Holt

Today we're celebrating the release of LUST BY MOONLIGHT and MATED, two new shifter stories from award-winning and bestselling author Desiree Holt.

Desiree has lived a life of excitement that brings the color to her writing. She was a summer fishing guide, a summer field hand where she was one of only three women working, a member of a beginning ski team that skied in competition (and no, no broken bones!). She spent several years in the music business representing every kind of artist from country singer to heavy metal rock bands. For several years she also ran her own public relations agency handling any client that interested her.

She is twice a finalist for an EPIC E-Book Award, a nominee for a Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award, winner of the first 5 Heart Sweetheart of the Year Award at The Romance Studio, and is published by four different houses. Romance Junkies said of her work: "Desiree Holt is the most amazing erotica author of our time and each story is more fulfilling then the last."


LUST BY MOONLIGHT - Book Two in Desiree Holt's Night Seeker Series

As a shifter Mark Guitron is uniquely equipped to search for the devil beast, El Chupacabra, and stop the horrible killings. Hunting one night by moonlight he spots another wolf whose aura tells him she is also a shifter. When he is visited by an erotic vision of her in human form he knows he must find her and make her his own.

Chloe Hansen is searching for her friend who she's convinced is a victim of the devil beast. When she meets Mark she feels a primal tug that tells her they are meant to be together. As they join forces in the hunt, they soon learn that sex between them feeds a need, rather than slaking it. The multiple orgasms barely satisfy their lust for each other, and as they draw closer to their prey they mate in the fiercest coupling yet.


MATED - Book Five in Desiree Holt's The Sentinel Series

Cale Martin knew at once Linnea Porter was his mate, but could he convince her in the midst of turmoil?

When The Sentinels agreed to look into the disappearance of Linnea Porter's sister, Cale Martin was tagged as the lead. He didn't know what he expected the first night he showed up at Linnea's, but a surge of lust wasn't on his list. Nor did he expect his inner wolf to reach out to her.

For Linnea, fascinated by shapeshifters, Cale called to something primitive inside her. As they focused on finding her sister, the bond between them continued to grow. Was it possible that this shifter and this human were meant to be...mated?

Reader Advisory: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series, although it can be read as a standalone title.

  15. Hi Desiree!

    I'm a ghuge fan of your books and shifter stories are one of my favorites, so I can hardly wait to get my hands on your new release.

    I love the way you write, you make it so easy to love your books. :)

    Do you listen to music while you write, or listen to the tv?

    I find it distracting to listen to others things while I'm online, so I listen to music.


  16. Congratulations on your new releases! I admit to a love for shifter stories.

    In today's post I noticed that you spent time representing music artists for some years. Any hope of getting a series with a rock star character or band?
