WIP it Real Good: PNR Author Jennie Lynn Roberts + giveaway


As you know, Val is book 2 of the Hawks series, a fantasy romance set in the world of Brythoria; a world filled with an array of people with different cultures and beliefs. Some people can fly, others have primal inner beasts or gifts of truth-telling and strength from the gods.

Now that Val is released, I’m focussing on Mathos—book 3 of the Hawks—and I can’t wait to share it.

Mathos is the second in command of the Hawks, he’s the charmer of the squad, always making jokes (largely to deflect from having to deal with any tricky emotions) and has a snarky inner beast with lots to say. Lucilla is his perfect match. She’s an awesome heroine, determined to stand on her own feet and see the world. She’s strong and intelligent, and she doesn’t let Mathos get away with anything.

I’ve had so much fun writing these two characters and their enemies-to-lovers romance. Here’s a taste, hope you enjoy it!

Mathos stalked into the darkness cursing princesses, queens, the world, Tor, Tristan for sending him on the gods-forsaken mission, darkness, princesses again, horses, and, mostly, himself.

What on earth had induced him to take her into his arms like that? You’d think he knew better.

The beast in his belly snorted in wry amusement. Mathos kicked a tree and ignored it.

She had pressed herself back into her horse, mud streaks across her face, eyes wide, her dry lips and the dark rings under her eyes clearly showing that she wasn’t drinking enough or sleeping enough. And he had been filled with an overwhelming need to keep her safe.

Then she’d tried to run, and he’d known that she wouldn’t last more than a day or two in the woods alone, and without stopping to think, he’d pulled her up against him, so soft and warm and vulnerable. His beast had howled to protect her, and he had fully agreed—even when she tried to stab his leg with that ridiculous letter opener—right up until she’d called him an animal.

Gods. Lesson learned. That woman was trouble.

But you like trouble. Especially trouble with big eyes and delectable curves. Beautiful, luscious trouble.

He’ll do anything to save her. And then he’ll say goodbye…

Being framed for murder, captured, and tortured for weeks didn’t break Val. But seeing Alanna every day, knowing she didn’t love him as he loved her, surely would. So, he’ll do whatever is necessary to stop the king from executing her…then he’ll walk away. Forever.

Queen Alanna gave up everything—including her soul mate— to secure the treaty that would end the war. Now, her husband wants her dead and any chance she had for true happiness with Val is ruined.

The king’s new guards are arrayed against them, the threat of war looms large, and their enemy has the upper hand. When all is said and done, will Alanna choose to sacrifice her own happiness to save her kingdom? Or will she risk it all for a second chance at happily ever after with Val?

Val, book 2 in The Hawks series, is a sexy, steamy, adult fantasy romance full of swords, shifters (kind of), and tons of action. But fair warning: This book is intended only for readers who love slow burn romance, fast-paced adventure, soul mates and found family—and characters who curse when they fight for survival. If that’s you, happy reading.

About the Author:
Jennie Lynn Roberts believes that every strong, kickass heroine should have control of her own story, a swoony hero to support her at every turn, and a guaranteed happily ever after. Because that doesn’t always happen in real life, she began creating her own worlds that work just the way they should. And she hasn’t looked back since.

Jennie would rather be writing than doing anything else—except for spending time with her gorgeous family, of course. But when she isn’t building vibrant new worlds, she can be found nattering with friends, baking up a storm, or strolling in the woods around her home in England.

If you want to talk books, romance, movies, reluctant heroes, or just about anything else with Jennie, feel free to contact her But be prepared to settle in for a long chat if you bring up shifters, vampires, Star Wars, or The Princess Bride….
