Kenra Daniels is my Woman In Horror today! I guess it makes total sense since Azure Boone and Kenra both write many novels as a team and Azure was my Woman In Horror yesterday. This won't be a rerun of yesterday's post, though, since Kenra writes books on her own as well.

The one book of Kenra's I definitely have to spot light is Safe Heart (Blood Dragon). Why? Have you ever read a book with weredragons and vampires in it together? Add in a weredragon Enforcer, some humans used as food, mainly by the vampires because weredragons tastes are superior to those of vampires. In the minds of the weredragons anyway. An unexpected love develops between the two species which could threaten to undermine the truce between them. This tale rocks with horror, love, humor, and impossible situations made possible because of the deft pen wielded by the skilled author who Kenra is. This is a genre blending tale that I heartily recommend. Personally, besides the hot erotic scenes, I love the weredragons. This novel is a classic!


Below are some words from Kenra on her Facebook page:

"I believe *everyone* eligible to vote owes it to everyone else to vote. I believe every single elected official should have served in the military, federal elected officials should have min. 4yrs active duty. Personal funds shouldn't be used to campaign. We need strict ethics reforms at all levels of govt to rout out corruption/conflicts of interest. Every single adult American who is capable, physically and/or mentally, should serve the nation in some capacity - military, civil service... Lots of other "radical" beliefs and ideas, too."

I don't know about you, but I see gems of wisdom everywhere in these words. I served in 'Nam and knew many pacifists who were also serving there. They did not carry weapons. They were medics and were some of the bravest men I have ever known. These great soldiers fall into what Kenra desribed above. They served, every bit as much as those of us who carried weapons. Their blood was spilled the same as the rest of us. Two thumbs up from me on what Kenra wrote!

Kenra's Amazon bio:


"One half of the Archangels Creed team!! My coauthor, Azure Boone, and I are long time best friends and writing critique partners. Co authoring was a natural progression for us!
I live in rural eastern KY with my very own Romance Novel Hero/Husband. We have one adult daughter, and find ourselves, in our mid-40s, raising her three little boys as she battles physical and mental health issues, as well as addiction. So we're back to diapers and preschool when we were just starting to become accustomed to an empty nest! The only part we'd change is for our daughter to be healthy and more involved, though. The boys are such a joy!
When I'm not riding herd on the boys, or writing, I enjoy cooking, sewing, crafts, gardening, camping, and other things. Horses used to be at the top of that list, but I have health problems that make riding impossible now, and it's still too painful emotionally to be around horses and not able to ride. Maybe someday I can get to the point where I can be near them and not ride, and not feel as if I lost my best friend.
Writing is a lifelong obsession for me instead of recent discovery. The bright side to my chronic illness is that I have enforced periods of limited physical activity, which turns into writing time. I have Fibromyalgia, in addition to an unidentified condition that's causing progressive nerve damage. I take several medications daily, including a narcotic pain reliever to manage the massive pain associated.
Before I became unable to work, I was a Preschool teacher for almost 15 years. Great experience for raising 3 very active little boys :)"

I suggest you visit Kenra on her website  http://kenradaniels.com/ . There you will gain much insight into the wonderful person she is. She is quite a spunky lady, a trait I admire much. She does what she must do to handle things that throw themselves in her face in the most ultimate horror of all: real life. I am particularly intrigued by a post here http://archangelscreed.com/balancing-the-universe/ . This back and forth discussion explains how Kenra feels about erotica in her stories. She describes it as being Physical-Emotional-Spiritual. That's all I will say here. The read is fascinating and anyone writing or thinking about writing erotica into their tales should read this.

Kenra Daniels is a Woman In Horror!

Safe Heart (Blood Dragon) by Kenra Daniels (Oct 12, 2012)

Book Description

October 12, 2012
Assigned to rescue a vampire kidnapped by humans determined to exterminate them, a weredragon Enforcer falls in love. Will betrayal keep them apart?

Can the pursuit of true love overcome the fear of society’s rejection and exile? Vampire Jaden Beayer thinks so. When she is kidnapped and tortured by humans, her government sends weredragon Enforcer Kiellen Henley to find her. After her recovery, Jaden convinces Kiellen to help her track down the humans responsible for her torture and exact revenge on them. The problem is, Jaden feels Kiellen is the missing ingredient for her complete recovery. Kiellen believes she has mistaken gratitude for attraction, and despite his overpowering need, he rejects her attempts at seduction.

As they face violence and betrayal from unexpected sources, Jaden’s quest for revenge becomes one for justice. Kiellen’s resistance evolves into acceptance and love. Jaden wants forever with Kiellen, but he’s realistic. They simply can’t be together because they are enemies. Weredragons and vampires have always been at war, and a relationship between Kiellen and Jaden could even endanger the fragile centuries-long truce.

When Jaden is finally safe and Kiellen’s name has been cleared, Kiellen says goodbye, leaving Jaden devastated and himself dangerously heart broken. Will Jaden ever be able to help Kiellen overcome his fears of prejudice and exile, and fulfill their love, making her his forever? Or will their love spark open warfare and send them both to the death penalty?

***

The Background:

Today's weredragons are the modern descendants of an alien species that arrived on Earth during the infancy of humankind. These highly intelligent reptiles, with their technological advances, considered themselves THE Apex predator. Humans weren't their preferred prey, being considered unpalatable and too much trouble for too little reward, even if they were the most intelligent, adaptable prey on the planet.

When dragons discovered vampires preying on humans, they couldn't allow the challenge to their superiority go unmet. A long and bloody war erupted between the two predator species, but the war only served to keep both populations under control.

Dragons adapted their chameleon-like ability to take the shapes of other life forms and learned to shape shift into human bodies. The skill allowed dragons to live secretly among humans like the vampires did, but didn't give them a real advantage in the war.

As human populations increased and became organized, they started to hunt dragons and vampires. Most dragons lived the majority of their lives in human form and eventually lost the ability to take on other forms. Around the same time, they began calling themselves 'weredragons' in an attempt to alleviate the brutal, predatory image humans held of them.

Today, vampires and weredragons are still enemies, but a long-term truce is in effect, enforced by the Inter Racial Council. Both continue to live secretly among humans, and only rarely cross paths.
5.0 out of 5 stars loved it and am dying for book 2, December 16, 2012

This review is from: Safe Heart (Blood Dragon) (Kindle Edition)
OMG seriously where do I even start? I started this book Friday morning and finished it Saturday night in between work and children!! It was amazing. I cant even begin to tell you what I didn't like because honestly there wasn't anything. I loved the intense sexual chemistry and cheered when they finally, well YOU KNOW.

Ok I am a huge BDB fan and all I could think of when Kiellen was being talked about was Rhage. So naturally Jaden became a kick ass version of Mary for me. (If you don't know what i am referring to then ...sigh....I am sorry but you are missing a great love story there between them BUT back to Kenra's book). I also loved the politics this book presented. The fact there is a Council there to protect the different species of Paranormal persons. I enjoyed the friendships each character brought to the story even if they were back stabbing bitches....sorry but we all know we have friends like that in our life. I liked the respect that Jaden and Kiellen gave to each other most of all . He respected what she had been through and she respected his ideas and concerns. I was glad that the 'trama" Jaden received at the hands of the Mortification people was skimmed over. To me, my imagination made it much worse that any writing could have made it.

Ok so why did I like this book? It was literally on the edge of your seat suspense and then hot ass sexual chemistry filled with alot of laughing...like the scene where he drops her because his jeans are still around his ankles and he is carrying her to the bed. The the inn keepers bust in thinking something is wrong..........soooo damn funny. So I would definitely give this book a thumbs up. I cant wait for book 2 and already was harassing the author about it!! This could definitely become a favorite series of mine without a doubt.

  1. Thanks, Blaze! What a great surprise :D And thank you for your military service.

    Your readers might enjoy Wager and Ante-Up from Archangels Creed - these novellas have stronger traditional horror elements than most of my work ;)

  2. Thank you for thanking me, Kenra! I feel strongly about military service myself. I guess that's obvious, though.

    It's hard to believe Wager and Ante-Up could beat out a weredragon tale, but I'll put my readers on to it. More books for me to read.
