UNTAMED Launch Party & Giveaway! with Sara Humphreys

The launch of UNTAMED is finally here! 


This is the third book in the Amoveo Legend series and I had the distinct pleasure of kicking off the launch at Turn the Page Bookstore in Boonsboro, MD. Does the place sound familiar? If so, that's probably because you've heard of the owner...Nora Roberts. Nora does monthly signings at her store in Maryland and I was lucky enough to capture a spot in the November event. (Thanks to one of my super-fab street team gals---Thanks, Jenn!!) While I was there I had the absolute pleasure to get to know fellow authors Jill Archer and Addison Fox.


And of course....the Queen herself....Nora Roberts!




I had such fun, that even made a little video trailer for you guys. Check it out.





The signing on Saturday was a fun and memorable way to kick off what's sure to be a busy month! I'll be blogging all over the net and I've got a few signings scheduled as well. You can find info for the book tour and blog tour on my website.

Here's a bit about UNTAMED


William Fleury has finally found his mate. A highly respected attorney and member of the Gyrfalcon Clan, he’s known for his cold, calculating demeanor. However the ice around his heart thaws the moment he sets eyes on his mate.
Layla Nickelsen is a world traveled photographer with a secret--she gets more than a digital image from her pictures. The only thing she dreads more than her Amoveo heritage is the knowledge that someday her mate will find her and claim her. Raised on a rural Maryland farm by a loving foster mother, she and two other hybrids live in fear of the full blooded Amoveo. However, unable to shape shift like her siblings, Layla always feels out of step.
When her mate arrives to claim her the intense and immediate connection is startling…but when the safety of the farm is violated and Rosie is attacked…the game changes and sacred trusts are challenged.
William shows her the way of the Amoveo and helps her realize her powers with remarkable speed. But will the Council and the pure blooded Amoveo embrace the newly revealed hybrids?
Lines are drawn. Loyalties are questioned. The Amoveo become a house divided.
Layla swiftly discovers that there’s a fine line between love and lust.
You can’t escape your fate.

An Excerpt 
*Warning--It's a little saucy.*

Rosie looked at the two of them, who simply sat there staring at her. “Well, get outta my kitchen. I have things to do, and so do you,” she said as she tended to the sink full of dirty dishes.
“Come on.” Layla reluctantly pushed herself out of the chair. “We better do as she says, or we’ll never hear the end of it.” She made her way into the front hall. “The woman gets as ornery as a billy goat if she doesn’t get her way,” she mumbled.
“I heard that,” Rosie shouted.
Layla turned to shout an apology, only to run into William. She let out a yelp and probably would’ve fallen on her butt, if he hadn’t reached out and grabbed her. His strong hands encircled her slim biceps and steadied her with minimal effort. Layla found herself pressed up against his hard body and realized that her hands had somehow found their way to his chest.
His heartbeat thrummed strong and steady beneath the crisp white shirt. The fabric whispered cool and smooth under her fingertips, but the heat of his skin quickly seeped through, causing her fingers to dig involuntarily into the unyielding muscles of his chest. Her gaze wandered up his throat, which worked as he  swallowed. She had the overwhelming urge to kiss him just beneath his jawline.
What the hell was she thinking?
Sex. That’s what. Hot, sweaty, tear my clothes off, pin me up against the wall, and make me lose my senses kind of sex. Layla squelched a groan, squeezed her eyes shut, and let out a slow breath.
“I didn’t mean to startle you,” he said gruffly.
He relaxed his grip, but didn’t release her. Eyes still closed, she nodded and shivered as his thumb brushed a soft stroke along the exposed skin of her arm, just below the edge of her rolled up sleeve. Layla bit her lip and struggled against the urge to moan.
Her eyes tingled, and she knew they had shifted. Dammit. That only happened when she got really mad—or really turned on—and at the moment, she was feeling an intoxicating mixture of both.
Her shirt and jeans felt two sizes too small, and all she wanted to do was get naked and climb this guy like Mount Everest. Her body reacted to him on an animalistic level, and based on the rock hard erection pressing against her stomach, it was blatantly obvious that she was having a similar effect on him. This was ridiculous. They were standing in the front hallway plastered to each other like white on rice.
Layla grit her teeth and pushed against the firm planes of his chest. He didn’t move. She swore and forced herself to look him in the face. Mustering courage, her eyes flew open and instantly latched onto his.
Big mistake.
