Ebook Giveaway: Valley of Shadows by Phoenix Emrys [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to Phoenix Emrys for donating an ebook copy of her recent paranormal m/m romance, Valley of Shadows, for a lucky commenter to win!

Ellery James, a celebrated author of historical romances, shuns the spotlight, preferring the solitude of his small town sanctuary to risking media scrutiny. He harbors a closely guarded secret that is not only the bane of his existence, but the source and inspiration of his bestsellers.

His strictly proscribed existence goes south and sideways when the grimly dangerous Boone Dantrell blazes into Ellery’s life. Ellery is alarmed to experience a tentative but undeniable connection to the haunted, mysterious stranger with secrets of his own, and the burgeoning attraction between them grows almost as swiftly as the danger dogging Boone.

They’ve barely met before their secrets and worlds collide, thrusting them both into unimaginable peril. The battle they must wage together spans this world – and the next – and losing it could cost them not only their lives, but their very souls.

Book Trailer (I’m not usually a fan, but this one was great fun!)

Comment Exchange between Phoenix and I about the very unexpected turn this book takes 2/3 of the way through.

About Phoenix

Phoenix Emrys began her writing career at age seven when she penned her first opus, a supernatural thriller about a green porcelain horse and her favourite Barbie. She continued to write vociferously into her twenties, producing several fantasy tales featuring two male characters of the intensely bonded, brothers-in-arms variety. The book she slaved over and submitted for publication utterly failed to impress. Whereupon she chucked the writing and got on with her life.

She put her writing aspirations aside to have two children and various careers, including a six year stint in the military, working various retail venues, owning and operating both a used book/comic book store and a metaphysical bookstore. She also served time in call centres, painted, made furniture and dry-walled.

In 1999 her first computer and a shiny new obsession for two hot guys in a certain sci fi series led her into the world of fanfiction, where she discovered two hot guys who really liked each other could do way more than hug…a lot. Not only did this exciting new arena rekindle her atrophied desire to write, but the slash revelation inspired her to significantly expand her literary horizons.


Ten years of fanfic writing ensued. During which she wrote – a lot – and learned some, too. Well, she hopes so, anyway

Phoenix is a Canadian south paw and lives in British Columbia with her daughter, the world’s largest cat and his psycho Siamese nemesis. She loves to knit and write about hot guys in love, with happy endings.

  3. When I was a the vet the other day, there was the cutest kitten looking for a home. He appeared to be solid black, but when he rolled over, you could see he had a little white bikini. And when I put my fingers through the bars, he grabbed them and started rubbing his face on them and PURRING so loud! It really was all I could do to not take him right home with me….
