14 Days of Romance: Shawn Dalton-Smith

Welcome to Day 2 of 14 Days of Romance. Here tell us about her favorite romance novel as well her as debut release, Dreamers, let’s hear it for author Shawn Dalton-Smith....

Hi, Amber! Thanks for letting me take up a little of your space!  My all time favorite romance novel is Night Play by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I like this one because the heroine, Bride McTierney, isn't your average romance heroine. Yes, she's beautiful, likeable... and a size eighteen.

The hero is Vane Kattalakis, a were-hunter. He has the ability to shift into the form of a wolf on command. The heat between these two characters is smoking hot, and I like the fact that Ms. Kenyon didn't make a big deal of the heroine's size. Yes, it played a major role, but she didn't harp on it. I found it funny that the heroine's father was a vet known as "The Neuter King." This book made me laugh and I love a story that can do that.

Shawn’s  latest debut novel, Dreamers, was released this month by Red Sage Publishing….

Somiar Ayers has lived most of her life carefree. She is the daughter of Monica Ayers, the wealthy owner of several luxury resorts all over the world. She always knew she could control her dreams and looked at it as a harmless escape from reality. Or so she thought.

One night she gets a call from Monica requesting an urgent meeting. Monica tells her that she is adopted and her birth mother was part of a group of assassins called Dreamers. When Dreamers go to sleep at night, they astral project anywhere they want to go. They can change their appearance and leave no DNA or fingerprints. Her birth mother has been caught and only Somiar can get her back.

Malachi Walker’s job as a wealthy hotel owner is the perfect cover for his inherited job as a Dream Catcher. His only passion is to rid the world of Dreamers, particularly the one that killed his best friend. When he meets Somiar Ayers, his first instinct is to protect her at all costs. He believes she is being hunted by a Dreamer, the very Dreamer he is looking for. Somiar must find her mother before Malachi realizes who she is. On her journey, she finds that nothing is as it seems, and she doesn’t know who to trust.

Thank you for sharing your favorite romance and latest release, Shawn! Readers, Dreamers is available now as an ebook from Red Sage as well as in Nook and Kindle formats – and wherever ebooks are sold.  You can find out more about Shawn at her website!
