Ë?Ë?Ë? What Goodreaders are saying about Werewolf Keep:

‘The story and plot was very realistic for a paranormal romance… I would recommend this to readers who love historical romances with a paranormal twist.’Ciara1973

‘This author’s writing ability is exceptional and is quite elegant while delivering a work of fiction with an incredible impact.’ Christina

‘It was cool it was ‘classic’ werewolf, in that one scratch and they’re a werewolf, along with they only turn on the full moon and are not in control of their wolf. Very gothic with the era and the surroundings.’ Grumpyoldbird

‘I loved the solitary feel of the moor and the utterly fantastic way that Glover brings the residents and the Keep, its self, alive. It is a very unique experience. Though readers meet the Keep and the residents by way of Phil’s initial presumptions, Glover makes sure that the way the residents view themselves and their predicament are equally explored. Because this information is so intricately layered throughout the book, the entire storyline is richer. I honestly enjoyed all of the characters and look forward to Glover’s spin-off story about Jasper. (But I have to say that my favorite character is Charlotte. :)’ Blake

Mythe: A Fairy Tale

by P.J. Gordon

When wunderkind graphic designer Amanda Jensen is asked to work with brothers Richard and Joshua Raines, she’s both thrilled and nervous. After all, the two men are like a pair of Prince Charmings ripped from the pages of a fairy taleâ??rich, famous, and handsomeâ??while she has always been the terminally uncool overachiever. But her new clients are much more than the two-dimensional sex-symbols that most people see, and Manda’s real-life fairy tale veers sharply into the surreal when Manda discovers that her new clients are also much more than human. Manda never expected to find herself tangled in their life of secrecy, lived under the constant glare of the media spotlight.

She also never suspected that she would lose her life, but Manda had forgotten one fundamental truth: Fairy tales always have a dark side.

So drop on by the Angelic Hearts and Valentines Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, and allow minister Elvis to bend your ear, as he recalls some of the fairy tales behind the wedding ceremonies.

These are light hearted short tales about love and life, retold in a romantic pulp fiction style. Stories told by girls with an attitude, about the paths they walked that led them to their very own Prince Charming and their nuptials at the chapel.

“Over in Seven Hills, Not So Far Away” – Young Crystal was living the quiet life, at peace with nature and her seven little friends. Dreaming of meeting her romantic prince. Yeah, maybe someday. But her world is turned upside down, the day her long absent mother turns up on her doorstep. Will Crystal survive her mother’s visit and win the heart of the prince of her dreams too?

“So Who’s Afraid” – There’s a storm brewing on the horizon, the day Little Red goes for a hike in the hills outside Vegas. So when she meets Mr. Wolf there, well, is he the dashing hero of her dreams? Or her very own worst personal nightmare?

“The Magic Lamp” – Young Ting-ting is sorely in need of some love, tenderness and respect, the day she stumbles upon an old Aladdin oil lamp. But can the lamp really make Ting-ting’s dreams and wishes come true?

“The Magic Stiletto Heels” – Cindie is poor but happy, the evening she meets the handsome stranger of her dreams. But as midnight strikes, it’s time for Cindie to not only leave the ball, but to leave the United States too. So how can a pair of stiletto shoes help the couple to ever find each other again?

“The Girl In The Tower” – Leticia sure is feeling lonesome and isolated at nights, up there in the tower. But things seem to get even worse, the night she lets her hair down. Will Leticia ever find the love and happiness she truly yearns for?

“Sleeping Wide Awake” – It’s been a sleepless night for Elvis. Which leads John Wayne impersonator and minister Big John to recall Carol’s tale of the Princess and the Pea. Which reminds Liberace impersonator and minister Archie about Natashia’s tale of the Sleeping Beauty. Seems like sometimes it’s not just attitude, but another point of view too, that is needed in order to relate to life’s real fairy tales.

But after hesitating to give Zack an answer and even confessing to him that she has a boyfriend, Lindsey abruptly agrees to the dinner date. The reason she is able to go out with Zack this first time with minimal complications is because Dustin has been working 2,000 miles away in Chicago for the past two weeks straight, and that’s where he will “conveniently” be stuck once again this coming weekend.

The date with Zack goes fantastically, and Lindsey finds herself totally into him as their relationship gets underway. But her boyfriend Dustin is far from out of the picture, as Lindsey will soon find out.

Over the course of the next couple weeks her highs and lows with both Zack and Dustin – as well as with her prized job at a big-time management consulting firm – will send Lindsey’s entire world on wild swings of ups and downs that she never could have imagined only a year earlier when she moved to L.A. after graduating from college.
