Happy Dancing as I plan my first book signing.

 I'm breathing easier now that everything I need for my book signing is finally here.

My first book signing is this weekend. I've dreamed about this day and made sure I had everything I would need. I  made up fliers, printed business cards and made book marks. I had everything except the books.

 Yes, you heard me right. No books. I was nervous, wondering how I was going to do this until I got a delivery this morning, my books. They finally arrived.  Four days before my first book signing and I am finally ready. Now the only big question left to answer is what should I wear?

I see a shopping trip in my future, how about yours?

He knows the truth, but no one will listen...

Forced to keep his distance from his lover and their unborn child, Jason risks his life to protect Mercy from a cell of international terrorists who have vowed to get the secrets locked in her memory, no matter the cost. Can Jason convince Mercy to trust him until she remembers their past, or will he lose her to a man who will trap her in a nightmare world of darkness from which there is no escape?

Help me welcome Krystal Shannon as she gives us a look into her new book, Chasing Sam

Chasing Sam
Vegas Mates Book 1


     Samantha Demakis doesn't want a mate right now. Her birth-rite and family obligations to her status as the first daughter if a noble family beg to differ. In fact, even her wolf seems to be               against her. When a chance encounter reveals the man who might just be a perfect fit, will she run? Or will she fight.

      Chase Michaels has been alone for seventy-five years. He's fought in Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, and Afghanistan in the US Army. Somewhat resigned to never finding his true mate, he is shocked when his wolf reacts so strongly to a woman he runs into in the airport. Unprepared for the politics and snobbery of the noble families, Chase finds himself fighting in a different type of war-a war for the heart of a woman he knows should be his. 

                    A lot of things are chasing Sam, but who or what will catch her in the end?


Samantha Demakis wrinkled her nose at the barrage of scents coming from the Christmas hordes invading McCarran International Airport. She swallowed a growl of frustration and tightened the leash on her inner wolf. Everybody and their brother traveled for Christmas, and she didn’t like being one of them. She should have stayed at Duke. Her gut told her it was a mistake to come home.
Duke Medical School was her haven away from all this crazy.
People jostled her from all angles. Her rolling suitcase flipped over and she leaned back to right it. In the process, someone snatched her blue leather jacket from the carpeted floor and dashed away.
Shit. Really?
She straightened and scanned the crowd in the direction the thief had run.
Sam turned and looked to her left. Holy mother of hotness! Six and a half feet of beautiful man, dressed in a muscle-hugging beige thermal shirt and army camo pants, stood holding her royal-blue leather jacket. She curled her lips into a smile. His scent was magnetic, and she hurried toward him.
“Thank you so much.” She reached for the jacket, brushing her fingers along his hand on purpose. “I thought it was gone for good.” His blue eyes widened just for a moment. A charge had passed between them. She’d never felt anything like it before. Her wolf howled and slammed against her consciousness. It took every scrap of will power not to launch herself at him. The canine soul within her wanted him right now and so did she. The mate connection between them was strong. No, no, no. I don’t want a mate right now.
