Brothers. Families. Siblings. . .Juliana Stone!

What is it about romance books that feature families, that we love so? Think about it. How many books have you read in the last five years that belonged to a series featuring siblings. Whether its sisters, brothers or both.

Why do we love them? Is it simply an easy out for the author? To link a series by blood?

I think it’s a lot deeper than that. For me personally, I love the interaction you get with siblings. Emotions tend to run stronger and most of the time there’s no sugar coating of emotion. Family is blood and that just means something more.

My series, The Jaguar Warriors, feature a family of shapeshifting brothers—The Castille’s. They’re wildly passionate and alpha men, who are not only bonded because of their unique shapeshifting abilities, they’re family. And family is everything. It matters.

And that’s good, considering my boys became embroiled in a fantastic and dangerous journey, starting with His Darkest Hunger and continuing with His Darkest Embrace.

In this second book of the trilogy, Jagger is at a crossroads but his world is about to be rocked in ways he’d never imagined. Here is the blurb:

A solitary hunter with no regard for the human world, Jagger Castille is a shifter living on the edge. It will take the woman who calls him enemy to give him a reason to live.
Jagger is a creature of the night—Skye Knightly soars in the sun. Natural adversaries, they have been joined by destiny in a mission entrusted to Skye’s family centuries ago: Nothing less than the salvation of the Earth.
Wounded and bitter, Jagger sought escape in the solitude of the jungle, driven by a need to disappear forever… until a mysterious shifter who calls to his soul and feeds a yearning long forgotten, pulls him from his dark path. A courageous warrior, Skye’s passion is equal to Jagger’s own—but can she trust a man on the edge? A man whose secrets are as devastating as her own?

Each is the other’s sole hope for survival. But a dark and twisted truth is leading them toward the ultimate sacrifice for a love they may never live to claim.
Jagger is going to have to overcome a lot to get his Happy Ever After and you can bet his family is going to do whatever they can to make sure it happens!
