Can the great-granddaughter of his greatest enemy be the woman who finally tames both the man and his beast?
BONDED- (Nightshade #5)

“…Justice Wainwright stood on the front stoop of the townhome her friend Ariel shared with her brother, Boone, and rang the doorbell once more. Light shone brightly from the windows of the brownstone home, and until a moment ago, Justice was certain she had heard someone inside. So why was no one answering the door?

Pressing the doorbell once more, Justice leaned close until she had her ear pressed against the door, and closing her eyes, she listened hard. Ariel had seemed distracted and upset the last time Justice had seen her at the coffee shop, and worried, Justice had thought she would stop by and see if Ariel wanted to grab a movie or dinner together. Sometimes the best way to deal with a problem was to let it all out over Pad Thai and hot rice wine.

Another minute passed and still no one came to the door. With a sigh, Justice decided the sounds she’d thought she’d heard minutes before had been her imagination and with a sigh, she turned to walk down the short flight of steps to the sidewalk and trying calling Ariel in the morning. Just as her foot landed on the first downward step, however, she heard a god awful roar followed by a terrified shriek.

Without stopping to think, Justice pivoted and ran back to the door and started pounding; it wasn’t the sound of the scream drove her, but rather, it was the bestial roar that ignited her protective instincts. That rumble had sounded frightened and confused, and she had to comfort whomever or whatever had made the sound. Grasping the doorknob, she was startled to find the door unlocked, and without a second thought, she pushed the door open and rushed inside.

To her right and ahead, was a staircase that led to the second floor. Before her was a hallway that led to the back of the townhouse. Moving down the hall, Justice followed the sounds of splintering wood and breaking glass. Interspersed amid the sounds of destruction was the lowing, keening sounds of a trapped animal, and it was those sounds, more than anything else that drew her deeper down the corridor. She passed the empty living room without as much as a glance inside; she wasn’t interested in any place other than the room those forlorn noises were coming from. She couldn’t ignore them; it was as if the noises reached into her chest and grabbed hold of her heart and tugged her on until she came to another open doorway. Beneath the sporadic sounds of things breaking and the continual sound of something large whimpering, Justice could now also hear the occasion human moan.


Fearing her friend was hurt, Justice rushed into the room, only to come to a complete standstill as her mind struggled to take in the sheer enormity of the creature before her.

The first thought that crossed her mind as she craned her head back to look up at the creature was that looking at it was like looking at the Aurora Borealis as it was reflected in snow. It stood staring down at her, its crest of spikes brushing the ceiling and tangling in the chandelier. The effect would have been comical if it hadn’t been for the aura of embarrassed misery emanating from the poor creature.

“Hell…hello, Dragon,” she whispered up at it, in sympathy and awe, “My- my name is Ju-Justice; I’m glad to meet you.”…”

 Lets meet the lady behid these wonderful stories...

Brenda Tetreault grew up on the southern Oregon coast.

All through school, she wrote but put it aside when a school counselor informed her that, while she had a nice little hobby, she would never be good enough at it to pay the bills. After a short stint in the Air Force, during which she met and married her husband, Brenda settled down to be a military wife and the mother of a precocious little boy. She began writing again in her mid-thirties and in 2009 her first book, The Witcher Legacy: Book One of The Bounty Cove Chronicles was finally published.

In 2012 Brenda completed her first paranormal romance series, The Bounty Cove Chronicles, and is currently working on an entirely new series. On September 23, 2013, 'Tempted', the first book in The Nightshade Series was released through Kindle Direct Publishing, and was followed up with the second book in the series, ‘Salvaged’, on May 16, 2014. ‘Beloved’, the third in the series, followed soon after on October 28, 2014. The fourth and most recent book in the series, Fated, hit the shelves July 14, 2015.

Today, Brenda is enjoying a small amount of success, and has even paid a few bills with her writing! While she is unsure how many adventures there will be in this new series, Brenda does promise that it will feature all of the fun, adventure, love, steamy sex, and happily ever afters that have been the hallmarks of her writing from the beginning!

Blurb/Book Description: “The true love I desire shall come to me. I am the lock, he is the key. As mine to him, his soul shall speak to me. This I seek, so mote it be.”
When 55-year-old earth-witch, Annah-Belle Henderson, cast a spell for love she never envisioned her wish would be granted in the young nephew of her longtime friend. With a face that rivals the Norse god Thor, and a body to match, the charismatic Eric Ashworth draws Annah into a dizzying current of emotions. Should she accept the chance for love with a man twenty years younger or reject her feelings?

As a past darkness threatens to destroy her, Annah makes a decision that begins a journey fraught with judgement, betrayal, and perhaps death. 

The orange head of the match ignited with a flash. Slender fingers held it under the dried kindling. Within seconds, the splintered wood was ablaze, licking up the sides of an oak log, triggering the release of rose-scented oil. Except for the glow cast by the blaze, darkness shrouded the night. Brown eyes peered out from beneath long black bangs. Dressed in white with a pale shawl wrapped around her shoulders, Annah resembled a specter—one who had traveled from outside the realm of the living to watch the dance of the flames. She held a single red rose—an offering for Aphrodite, the Goddess of love.
When the fire reached its fevered peak, she dropped the rose into the inferno and murmured, “Aphrodite, accept my gift as I cast my wish on this Midsummer’s Eve.” The rose stem coiled, and the petals withered under the heat of the hungry flames.
Annah slid her hand into the pocket of her pants and removed a piece of green paper, two cones of sandalwood incense, and five apple seeds. On the paper, in scarlet ink, were written the words to a love spell. “The true love I desire shall come to me. I am the lock he is the key. As mine to him, his soul shall speak to me. This I seek, so mote it be.”
To reinforce the spell two additional recitations were required. During the second reading, she allowed the paper to float onto the engulfed log. The incense cones and seeds followed as she recited the spell a final time. When Annah ended with ‘so mote it be’ a breeze swept through the fire pit and the flames extended scorching fingers toward the heavens. Her canine companion released a soft whimper. “Shh,” she whispered. “It’s okay, Lexy.”
Annah stared into the blaze. “Druids believe it’s possible to see the faces of loves and enemies in an enchanted fire. I wonder.” At first she saw just the ravenous flames but soon an image took shape. A smile emerged. Loving eyes peered back at her as one of the incense cones exploded, sending hot sparks into the perfumed air. The smile turned into a sneer as the wail of a lone coyote pierced the night, bristling her fifty-pound Australian Shepherd’s composure. A series of responding growls emanated from Lexy, but they did little to assuage the sense of unease that passed through Annah. She backed away from the chimenea and sat on the nearby stone bench. “Probably best to leave the fire reading to the   Druids.”
Next to the bench rested a small wicker basket. Its contents, in addition to the bottle of rose oil, included a thermos, teacup, and her cell phone. Annah dropped the box of matches into the basket and withdrew her phone. With a swipe of the screen, she found the song she wanted to play. While the voice of Etta James accompanied her Annah opened the thermos and poured amber-colored liquid, still steamy and hot, into the cup. Before taking a sip, she raised it high, toasted the Goddess, and then bid the ashes that ascended into the starlit sky success as they delivered her wish. The current returned and spiraled within the fire. It carried the scented heat toward her, enveloping her in its warm embrace.
It was past one when Annah switched off the bedside lamp and lay in the darkened bedroom. Behind her bed, an open window granted access to the night air. A quiet breeze breathed life into the backyard’s wind chimes. Entering the room, it carried a subtle hint of sandalwood on its gentle waves. Circling Annah, it stroked her cheeks, softly caressing her lips. Entering that hazy place between dreams and reality, her mind gave shape to her last thought of the day. This will be my summer, a summer for true love.


Tinthia Clemant was born in Medford, Massachusetts, over sixty years ago. In other words, she's old! As a child, she lived happily in a loving home with her three siblings and mother and father. She always wrote. From the time she first picked up a pencil, or perhaps it was a crayon, she wrote. Love stories. Happy stories. Stories about love with happy endings. Her first book was self-published. (At the tender age of seven, she stapled the pages together and presented it to her mother on Mother's Day.)

As contemporary women's fiction's newest author, Tinthia fell in love with love stories and true love when she first learned about true love's first kiss. That did it for her! Unfortunately, she has yet to find that special kiss. Throwing her arms up in defeat, she decided to write about it and live vicariously through her characters.

Tinthia lives on the banks of the Concord River and spends her time teaching science at a local community college, gardening, painting, feeding her multitude of Mallards (follow her natural history blog at:, reading, and, of course, writing contemporary women's fiction about romance, relationships, and true love. She also enjoys Chunky Monkey and American Dream Cone and other enticing flavors produced by Ben and Jerry.
