Hello Everyone! Today I am pleased to announce that I am participating as a host for Winter Swans by Danica Winters as part of a Review Tour through Innovative Online Book Tour!
A curse that forbids her to love…A child that he must keep secret…An attack on the culture she holds dear…And a battle that could get them killed…
Single dad and professional poker player, Chance Landon, hates the world after his ex-wife is found dead in a cheap apartment in rural Idaho. On a lone-wolf crusade to find the killer, he instead learns that he is the father of a strange little girl who carries secrets that only a woman like his ex-wife can answer.
When his ex-wife’s killer learns about his daughter’s abilities and decides to come after the young girl, Chance enlists the help of the beautiful and deadly swan-shifting nymph, Harper Cygnini, who helps to teach him the truth of his daughter’s condition. Chance soon realizes that he alone can’t save his daughter from the sadistic killer and he finds himself in a battle between his head and his heart. Will Chance gamble on a future that involves falling in love—which may well cost him his life—or is that one bet his is unwilling to take?
Danica Winters is a bestselling author who is known for writing award-winning books that grip readers with their ability to drive emotion through suspense and often a touch of magic. When she’s not working, she can be found in the wilds of Montana testing her patience while she tries to understand the allure of various crafts (quilting, pottery, and painting are not her thing). She always believes the cup is neither half full nor half empty, but it better be filled with wine.

A nymph: a woman with the ability to seduce at will, shift to protect, but cursed with the fate to have the man she falls in love with die a tragic death. As one of these ill-fated nymphs, Aura Montgarten has spent her lifetime drifting from one place to another hiding from love. Until she meets Dane.
When a body washes up on the shore of a rural Montana lake, police officer Dane Burke is faced with the task of finding the killer—even if it means he will be forced to put his life and heart at risk by working with a drifter. As the truth of Aura’s Mustang-shifting nymph ways are revealed, Dane learns exactly the amount of danger he and Aura are in, but can’t force himself to leave a case unsolved when the truth is just outside his grasp.
When the killer decides he needs to take another victim—Dane—Aura must choose between their forbidden love and her immortal life. Can there be life without love or is death her only choice?
Although I have not read Book One or Two in the Nymph series, I was able to understand and enjoy Book Three. They are stand alones so therefore, can be read separately, but I believe going back to read the other two would be the only recourse after enjoying Book Three as I did!
Winter Swans was a well written adventure that once I became involved in the story, took a hold of me as a reader and did not let go until I completed it!
I like the push and pull of characters, when they are attracted to one another, and fighting the denial of that attraction. I enjoy this technique when employed by authors, some but not too much, because then it becomes frustrating and distracting. Author Danica Winters allowed her characters to deny and fight their budding romance, just enough, to intrigue and interest the reader, but not too much for the reader to become frustrated and lose interest!
Chance and Harper both had their burdens to carry, and their reasons for not jumping at the first signs of love…so it was very believable to me that they would be hesitant. But once they allowed one another in, it was sweet to see what was unfolding between the two!
I was hooked on the twists and turns of the mystery. The adventure was past paced once it began,and I felt the story well plotted and well paced.
It had a satisfying conclusion and left me with the desire to go back and read more of the Nymph series.
I recommend Winter Swans for those that enjoy mystery, suspense with a touch of magic!
