SOMEONE ELSE'S SKYE by Christine Wenrick Blog Tour


I would like to thank Wendy and Vampires, Werewolves & FairiesOh My! for letting me stop by today to talk about my newest paranormal release, Someone Else’s Skye. This is the first book in my Men of Brahm Hill series and it begins where The Charmed Trilogy ended—with the violent supernatural battle between humans, hybrids and a whole host of supernatural baddies and goodies.
So what can the reader expect? A paranormal rollercoaster, filled with romance and danger.
I have been asked what inspired me to write five romance novels that center around the premise of one violent battle scene. The answer is loss. Loss is something that mutually affects us all, and the paranormal world I’ve created in Men of Brahm Hill is not immune to that. The five heroes in these books all lose someone they care deeply about that night. This series looks at how each man deals with those losses and how circumstances lead them to love with five mysterious and equally fascinating women.
First up in Someone Else’s Skye is Kane, a rare, Natural Shape-shifter who thinks he has everything figured out. He’s a lover of life, women and excess . . . and did I mention women? For Kane, every bad day can be swiftly set to right by a sarcastic quip off the tongue and a warm, female body beneath him at night. The world is as it should be . . . until one perplexing woman gets him tangled up in a hot mess with a Lycan-killing baddie in the freezing tundra of the Northwest Territories. Skye is one complication in Kane’s rather uncomplicated world that he did not see coming.
It all makes for a fun adventure and I hope you will check it out!

Book Name: Someone Else's Skye
Author's Name: Christine Wenrick
Category: M/F
Main Characters: Kane and Skye
Series: Men of Brahm Hill #1
Release Date:  10/01/13
BLURB:  Kane, Brethren Guardian and one of the few Natural Shape-Shifters left in existence, survived the bloody battle of Brahm Hill but lost two of his closest friends. For all of his good-natured sarcasm and eye-popping good looks, Kane finds himself unable to completely forget about that night, so he seeks comfort in the one thing he is truly good at . . . sex! 
This shape-shifting bad boy believes in having a good time—a very good time, usually involving some mingled heavy breathing with a sexy Dhampir in a tiny closet somewhere. But when he’s sent into the freezing tundra of the Northwest Territories to investigate a troublesome supernatural being on the loose, he ends up crossing paths with a woman who almost instantly drives him insane with want . . . because she doesn’t seem to be falling for the shifter’s charms. It’s completely inexplicable. 
Skye Matthews has a job to do, and she needs to be focused on that, not spending all her time rebuffing the advances of this way-too-cocky and handsome stranger. Yet, there is something irresistible about this self-involved playboy that Skye can’t seem to stay away from. And when the unidentified Kane is sent to investigate takes an unnatural interest in her, protecting her becomes the Guardian’s top priority.

My Rating: 5
I fell in love with Kane in the Charmed Trilogy, he was such a player but you could see the underlining need to be loved. He is the love 'em & leave 'em type but never puts his heart out there. Kane is a shifter, a jaguar shifter, who works with the Brethren who are a large group of people that are trying to protect the world from evil.  During the battle at the end of the Charmed Trilogy, Kane is on the battleground and sees a beautiful woman appear. He knows she is not really there and is shocked to find the real life version of her when he is sent on a mission to find a creature killing anything that is in it's path. Skye knows she is different, she and all of her sisters are special and with her father's help she is sent on jobs to protect the world. When old lies and half truths come out Skye and Kane learn they are more than two people who are starting to fall in love.
