Guest Post & Giveaway - Nancy Corrigan's BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE Blog Tour

Guest Post by Nancy Corrigan
Aromatherapy to heal a shifter?
Devin, the hero of Beautiful Mistake, is a three hundred year old feline shifter suffering from mental illness. He’s also a Royal which means he houses three big cats, each with their own personality. Because of the trauma he experienced as a child, he suffers from blackouts and must constantly keep his aggressive inner animals from lashing out at every threat whether real or imagined. He deals with his issues by keeping busy and avoiding the triggers he knows sets him off. It’s not a perfect solution. Strong emotions, confusion and situations which remind him of his sister’s rape still test his control.
Shifter Affairs, the division of the human government that deals with shifter related problems, has been trying for years to help abused shifters overcome their problems, but trying to heal both man and beast has proven nearly impossible. Still, the humans who’ve dedicated their lives to protecting shifters refuse to give up. They’ve tried counseling, drugs and hypnosis. None of those treatments worked.
When all options are exhausted, the abused victims, mostly women and children rescued from trafficking rings and experimental facilities, are handed over to the shifters and placed in ‘Evaluation Centers’ to assure they can control their animals. Most never leave.
Devin has so far avoided being committed to one of the hellish centers, but a rescue mission to recover a kidnapped child might have given him the cure he never thought he’d find—personalized aromatherapy.
For a shifter, how something smells is extremely important. Like a true animal, they can use a scent trail to track someone. And from the variations in a person’s scent, they can also determine if someone is lying, afraid or aroused. Drug use and sickness can alter our personal fragrance too. Scents can offer them endless amounts of information and just as we have our favorite smells, so do shifters. In Beautiful Mistake, Devin finds his and her name is Lena.
The female who smells like sin, candy and heaven holds the key not only to Devin’s sanity, but his heart. After three centuries, he knows miracles don’t happen often. He’ll hold his gift close and love her with all that he is.

Royal Pride, Book 1 (Rafe and Jazz)

Since the murder of her best friend, Jazz is stuck in a safe but lonely way of life. She’s willing to sacrifice everything to keep her family safe from the shifter world. The sexy stranger who struts into her friend’s bar changes everything. From the first glance Jazz knows she’s sunk—their chemistry sizzles from across the room, it’ll be undeniable up close.

Rafe wants Jazz from the second he sets eyes on her. The depth of the need that swamps him every time he’s near her surprises him. It takes every last ounce of his self-control not to pounce on Jazz and make her his. Only her distrust of his shifter nature holds him back. He counts it as a win every time his beloved human gives in to their passion and takes him to her bed. But Rafe’s patience isn’t infinite and he’ll do whatever it takes, face any danger—past or present—to ensure that Jazz becomes his. Forever.

Royal Pride, Book 2 (Devin and Lena)

Lena will do anything to protect the shifter child her family takes in, even turn herself into bait. Although she knows better than to fall for a shifter, Devin, the man who captures her, is unlike any she’s ever tangled with. Their desire is unquenchable and the draw to him is undeniable, but their relationship is riddled with mistakes and loving him has the potential to destroy her.

After shouldering his twin’s torture, Devin hovers on the verge of insanity. His life revolves around his family and recovering kidnapped shifter children. He never thought he’d have a mate or kids of his own until a rescue mission turns deadly. The beautiful female caught in the crosshairs stirs his mating instincts and tames his wild nature. Only her confusion over their intense attraction stops him from finishing their bond, but Devin’s persistent. He’ll convince his stubborn female that he’s the man she’s been waiting for—one passionate encounter at a time.
