FIREWALKER Countdown Giveaway--JAMISON

Winner DAY 4--donnas!

The FIREWALKER Giveaway continues!

DAY FIVE--JAMISON KEE

Jamison to Janet: “I’m remembering a fifteen-year-old girl, one eaten up with storm magic. So scared she was afraid to go to school, and she’d run away from home so her grandmother wouldn’t make her go. She was sitting on a ledge overlooking Spider Rock and crying because she couldn’t make the lightning stop.”

Jamison Kee is a handsome Navajo shaman and a Changer (shifter) who takes the form of a mountain lion. He loves Naomi, the lady with the blue-green eyes who makes him a whole person.

Jamison is Janet’s oldest friend, the one who helped the teenaged Janet make sense of the storm power that rocked her. Without Jamison’s instruction, she’d never have survived.

Jamison and Naomi’s love story is told in “A Little Night Magic,” in the Hot for the Holidays anthology available from Berkley Publishing.

FROM Firewalker:
“My shaman advice to you is to go to bed. Before you do, will you call Naomi and tell her I need a ride home? If I walk home as a mountain lion in this town, I’ll probably get shot. If I do it as a naked man, I’ll never live it down.”

I think shape shifters are my favorite paranormal creatures (see PRIDE MATES, by Jennifer Ashley, followed by PRIMAL BONDS in March, if you don't believe me). There’s something about a guy with an animal lurking beneath that’s just...mmmm.

Do shape shifters rock your world? Or do you prefer a different paranormal creature? (and what?) Comment to win!

Oh wow, I like all sorts of paranormal creatures. I enjoy reading about shape shifters. If I was a ss I'd ss into a cat!

Jamison sounds like a winner! I love the little paragraph under "From FIREWALKER". LOL! Made me giggle. I'm thrilled to meet your characters, Allyson. Makes me want to read the books NOW. I think I'll pop in Borders today. After I finish the book I'm reading, I'm going to read STORMWALKER. :-)

I love shape shifters, especially the big cats and dragons. They are so awesome and sexy to me.

Anxious to read 'Firewalker' as I loved 'Stormwalker'.

I enjoy most paranormal characters. I like the big cats in the shapeshifters and the vampires the best. These books look live great reads.

Shifter stories are my absolute favorite paranormal reads. Something about the animal characteristic blended with human wants and needs is just fascinating, and most times wildly imaginative.

I think shapeshifters are actually really awesome! They have so many different characteristics, it's fun to see them all.

I love the big feline shifters. Who doesn't want to make a hot guy purr.

Jamison is the sweetest shifter. I was really rooting for him in his short story.

I love Jamison - he`s such a sweety! Given Janet`s whirlwind life, it`s good that she can have that one solid rock in her BFF.

Plus, he turns into a freaking puma. What`s not to love?

I can't resist a good shifter story! Jamison seems so rock solid, the kind of guy you'd love to have in your life.

I did it, Allyson! I went to Borders yesterday and bought a copy (the only copy) of STORMWALKER. I also bought a copy of HOT FOR THE HOLIDAYS. YAY! I'm racing to finish the book I'm reading so I can start STORMWALKER. :-)
