Interview with R.E. Butler author of LOGAN & JENNA along with a review and giveaway




About the Author:
 
I always wanted to be a homebody and live in one place for my entire life, but fate had other plans. In the past twelve years of my married life, we’ve moved seven times, including from one coast to the other. Southern New Jersey is home now and I love it. I have two young children, a husband who begrudgingly pays for my ebook addiction, and two dogs that think they’re people. After college, I spent eight years as an  executive assistant before “retiring” at twenty-seven to become a stay-at-home mom. I have a soft spot for self-published authors, Ghirardelli chocolate, muscle cars, and men with tattoos. Most people who know me don’t know I have a tattoo of a tiger on my hip or that I have an unhealthy obsession with The Simpsons.
                                     
I love sunsets, several cups of coffee in the morning, and I absolutely cannot live without books. When I’m not busy with my family, you’ll find me sitting at my desk working on any number of projects, including reading, reviewing, and writing.

I adore talking to fans and other authors, so please write to me! You can email me at rebutlerauthor@gmail, find me on Twitter, or join me on Facebook.

He thinks he’ll be alone forever:

Linus Mayfield has a lot of good things in his life: fourth ranked in the Tressel wolf pack, nice house, decent job, and plenty of friends. What he doesn’t have is what he longs for most – a true mate. His first foray into marriage was a disaster and he’s certain he’ll never be free to love again.

She’ll prove him wrong:

Karly is an Angel, a supernaturally perfect mate for one special werewolf. She’s spent the last 15 months looking for her mate, only to nearly die before she ever meets him. One icy winter night changes both of their lives forever.

When their past interferes with their future, will all be lost in the darkness, or will he find his perfect angel in time? This book contains plenty of claws and fangs, possessive werewolves willing to move heaven and earth for their mates, red hot werewolf sex, a sweet wolf with a heart of gold and an angel made just for him.

The Wolf’s Mate Book 3: Callie & The Cats (June 2012)

Callie Hunter, best friend to alpha half-wolf Cadence, has had enough of the pack life. Setting her sights on anyplace without wolves, she heads north only to be sidetracked by a devastating car crash that brings her face to face with twin mountain lions.

Ethan and Eryx, small town sheriff’s deputies, knew the moment they touched Callie that she was the mate they’d always wanted. But mountain lion females don’t take kindly to sharing their males with anyone else and will do anything in their power to discourage Callie from sticking around. Will Ethan and Eryx’s desire for Callie cost them everything, or will Callie find her inner wolf and the home she’s always dreamed of?

This novel contains menage-a-trois, hunky cops, handcuffs, an on-the-run she-wolf, sex in every room in the house, and inappropriate use of the phrase “assault with a deadly weapon”.

The Wolf’s Mate Book 4: Michael & Shyne (October 2012)

Michael Gerrick was beginning to wonder if he would ever find his truemate. Fate seemed to smile on him, when he fell hard for the delectable fitness instructor, Shyne. The only problem: three were-hyenas want her for their clan and are willing to do anything to get him out of the way.

Shyne Jackson was smitten with Michael from the moment they met. Swept up by his devastating good looks and sense of humor, she’s unaware of the plotting of her were-hyena bosses behind the scenes as they attempt to keep her and Michael apart. When they cross the line, will a showdown of fur and claws destroy everything she holds dear?

This book is for mature readers only and contains a wolf looking for his mate, a woman with a dark past, neck biting, plenty of teasing, wisecracks galore, and creative use of a pool table.

The Wolf’s Mate Book 5: Bo & Reika (January 2013)

She’s on the run for her life …As a child, she-wolf healer Reika Snow was promised as a mate to three were-lynxes to prevent a war between her pack and the lynx clan. Her freedom is coming to an end as her twenty-third birthday arrives. With her bleak future as the subjugated bride of the three males looms near, she does the only thing she can think of … she runs. With the lynxes hot on her tail, the only thing she can do is pray she can find safety, somewhere.

He’s not going to let her get far …Bo Elliot, highly ranked member of the Tressel wolf pack, rescues a she-wolf from the claws of three were-lynxes as they attempt to capture her. When she awakens, he’s surprised to find himself staring into the beautiful blue eyes of his truemate. With his bum leg, Bo doesn’t want to tie Reika down to a wounded male like himself by acknowledging that they’re mates, but he vows to set her free from the lynxes and give her back her life. It will take every trick in Bo’s book to keep Reika from taking off on her own in a misguided attempt to spare him from getting tangled up in the hot mess of her life, but Bo will do anything for his truemate, even if it means walking away once she’s free.

This book contains a scarred wolf with a heart of gold, a she-wolf healer who wants to protect her truemate at any cost, and a wolf-on-lynx battle that will determine where Reika spends the rest of her life. Readers should expect possessive werewolves, passionate sex, neck biting, and the kind of horniness that only the full moon can bring.

The Wolf’s Mate Book Six: Logan & Jenna (May 2013)

Jenna Odile planned to spend the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday partying with her friends before she cast a spell to find her truemate. Before she can, she’s captured by a group of criminally-minded werewolves who want to use her fae-abilities to commit crimes. Poisoned and left for dead, she used the last of her strength to cast the spell for her truemate, hoping that he would find her before it was too late.

The last thing Logan Anderson wanted to do with his Saturday evening was watch over the young male wolves in his pack while they attended a dance in hopes of finding their mates. As the night wore on, he began to feel compelled to leave, and his instincts led him to race into the woods at the side of the highway. In the darkness of the woods, he finds a woman near death, who begs him to protect her. Now, nothing is more important than helping her get well. He’ll deal with those who hurt her… later.

This story contains a male werewolf with a dark past, a fairy who can’t wait to find her truemate, and the betrayal that brings them together. Features hot werewolf-fairy loving, mythical creatures, full moon madness, and lots of neck biting.

My Thoughts:

I Must read books 1-5! I've had book one on the good old wishlist for way too long to remember. lol!

Now that I've read book six, I really, really want to read the others.

I had no problem reading it without prior knowledge of the previous books. But be prepared to have an urge to read the others if you try reading this book first. :-)

In this book we meet Logan, a werewolf, who is a bouncer at the local bar. He is an all around nice guy but he feels lonely even though he's always around people. He is in a hurry to meet his mate and have a family. Unfortunately, he hasn't been able to find her.

He's on his way home from a trip with some of the younger wolves when he gets a sense of urgency. He finds a half dead fae woman and gets her to the hospital barely in the nick of time.

Jenna is a fairy who can unlock locks. This is a handy trick indeed but not considered to be anything special by fae standards. She is celebrating her birthday and plans to cast a truemate spell in the morning. She gets kidnapped and barely survives before being found by Logan.

There is so much action and suspense in this book that you will be on the edge of your seat. As if that wasn't enough to make it a great read, the romance and sizzle will have you panting for more. ;-)

If you can't already tell (lol! as if!) I thought this book was terrific and I'm looking forward to getting the money to purchase and time to read the previous books. They are now at the top of the want list.

I received an ecopy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion. I can't say it enough, it was really a great read!


If you were a fairy or wolf would you rather have a mate of the same species or would you not care as long as you were in love?

  6. R.E., I noted above that you are a homebody. I am too. I also noted that you have a small dog. I do too (Yorkie). And I noted that you like clamming on the beach. So do I! The very best summer I ever had was on a beach in Kennebunkport, Maine and I ate claims every which way I could. Yum! So see? With those things in common, it's no wonder I like your wolf stories! :-) jdh2690@gmail.com

  8. Great interview, review and giveaway. I have o admit I'm a little behind on the series but I loved each book I did read. So I can't wait to pick this one up.
    I wouldn't care what species my soulmate is because real love is such a rare and beautiful thing. You have to grab it when you can and not let go because life's to short to worry about the differences you have to embrace them.
