Free Publicity Fridays

The Gripping Beast by Charlene Teglia was my first foray into Viking romance.  It had everything I was expecting, a feisty heroine, a pushy alpha male, a conflict between his responsibilities as jarl and her femenist demand for independence, hunting lodges, and longboats, plus a great sense of humor.

Please enjoy these excerpts and give Charlene’s fun, adventurous novel a try!

She patted his muscled chest gratefully. “Good hallucination.”–Kindle Locations 560-561

He had gained more than he had ever expected this day. A private playmate, a respite from endless duty, a source of brightness in his days to look forward to . . . Erik was suddenly eager to be on his way home.–Kindle Locations 589-595

He should sell her and be rid of her. Then he would be rid of the evidence of his foolish actions and free also of the twisted desire he felt for one so blighted.–Kindle Locations 1103-1104

With a low sound of encouragement, he cupped the back of her head with one hand and held her for his ravishment.–Kindle Locations 2094-2095


About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.
