Destiny Forgiven Book Tour

Congratulations to “Gabrielle L”, the winner of Leia’s giveaway. Thank you to all who participated.

You know you’re a book addict when…

  • your kids have ripped jeans and their shoes are too small but you have plenty of books on your e-reader.
  • it’s not unusual to find your kindle in bed with you and covered in drool when you wake up in the morning.
  • if you totaled the amount you’ve spent on books in the last year, it’d be equal to or more than your mortgage payment.
  • clicking the “buy now” button gives you a rush like a druggie getting their next fix.
  • your e-reader gets more action than your partner.
  • your kid’s first word was “kindle.” (Can also substitute Nook).
  • you have a panic attack when your TBR pile gets low (by low I mean less than 20 books).
  • you catch yourself saying, “Oh that same thing happened to my friend, Julie,” then freeze when you remember Julie is a fictional character in a book.
  • your kids know if they touch Mommy’s Nook her forehead gets all veiny.
  • you ask for gift cards (to Amazon, B&N, etc) for every holiday including your kid’s birthdays.
  • the countdown to a new release is more exciting than the countdown to the New Year.
  • you start reading a book then look up and realize it’s been hours and you’ve forgotten to cook dinner for your family. Oh and you’re still wearing your pajamas and haven’t peed all day.
  • your e-reader is like your Mastercard – it’s everywhere you want to be.
  • you justify a new book purchase with excuses like “It’s on sale!” “I had a bad day!” and “It’s Tuesday.”
  • you can stop anytime. No really, you can.

Destiny Forgiven

Shadows of Destiny book 5

When shifter rebel, Felicity, is thrown into the sorcerer’s prison, she meets the legendary torturerer known as Inkman. The menacing guard with the gruesome tattoos is almost unrecognizable, but she could never forget her childhood sweetheart, Maddox Blackwell.

But he has no memory of her. Brainwashed and broken, his human emotions have been destroyed, leaving him bereft, without an identity. Now only darkness remains. As she fights to make him remember their past, forgotten feelings reignite. Love was once a breath away. Can she save him before he must take that final step and execute her?

Leia Shaw is the bestselling author of the paranormal romance series, Shadows of Destiny. Thinking up fae politics, plotting dragon power games, and calculating how fast werewolves can change forms has given her a way to express those dark places in her mind. More recently, she’s branched out into the erotic world and has co-written several humorous but heartwarming contemporary BDSM romances, 31 Flavors and the Badass Brats series.

Leia lives in New England with her husband and two kids. Though she will go to her grave denying it, her husband insists she would be thrilled if he suddenly sprouted fangs.

  3. So guilty– but only 20 on the TBR– NEVER! Don’t forget burning dinner when you do try to cook and read at the same time!

  4. You might want to add … if you go on your 15 minute work break and a co-worker has to find you 30 minutes later because you were only going to read a “few pages”. 🙂

    The book sounds great, another added to my TBR.


  10. Oh yes I am a big book addict! Great list.


  11. The list is hilarious but too true! I would probably have a stroke if I totaled my book purchases. I don’t think my TBR list has ever gotten that low. Probably has never had less than 100 books. Even though I’ll never read them all, I keep on adding them!
    Including this one!
