She puts me through hell… but there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.

I thought Tamara and I had something special. I know we did. But then she up and left me. Didn’t leave a note. Nothing.

One day I’m gripping onto her lush curves and hearing my name spill from those pouty lips of hers. And then she’s gone.

The hell of it is, I don’t care. Other women aren’t an option. I want her. I need her. She’s still mine, and I’m claiming her no matter what.

I’ll drag her ass back here kicking and screaming. When I’m done with her, she’ll know who she belongs to.

My only rule: Never hook up with an MC rider.

I’ve been around the Blood Riders MC my whole life. My father was a member. After the heartache he handed my mother, I promised myself I deserved better.

Then came Creed. With his broad shoulders and rippling muscles, he won me over before I even knew what was happening. The things he makes me feel almost make me believe in forever. But I can’t.

And now I’m f*cked.

I knew better to put myself in this position, but I caved to his touch, and now I’m carrying his baby. I won’t let this child lead the sh*t life I had.

I have to protect our child. Creed can never know; even if it tears my heart in two.

Creed is book three of the Blood Riders MC series with no cheating and a guaranteed happy ending. This book is a full-length motorcycle romance novel that’s intended for mature audiences only. Reader discretion is advised.

I found the class, and it was one of the standard college auditoriums I was getting used to. Unprepared for the sight of so many students, I missed a step and stumbled forward, almost falling down the stairs face first. If it hadn’t been for the strong arm wrapped around my waist, I’d have been an embarrassed, injured mess at the feet of the professor.
As it was, I was an embarrassed, rattled mess with a strange male arm wrapped around me. I stiffened when it became apparent said arm wasn’t moving. Only one person got to do this, and he wasn’t in this class. I tapped the arm to get the owner’s attention. “Excuse me? Do you mind?”
“Nah, sugar,” a deep masculine drawl said from behind my right shoulder. “I don’t mind at all.”
If possible, I stiffened more when the guy tightened his hold on me and tried to pull me closer.
“Why?” he asked low in my ear. “Do you?”
I tried to wiggle a hand under his arm to work out from under it. “Yes, I do mind! Let me go.” I kept my voice down, just barely. I had enough going on without embarrassing myself over a misunderstanding.
He chuckled but didn’t let go. Okay, so he totally knew what he was doing. I started to get worked up, and just when I was on the verge of causing bodily harm, either to myself or him, the professor spoke up.
“Mr. Caldwell, do we have a problem here?” the professor asked from down at the podium, his voice thick with a Russian accent. I looked at the man speaking and saw he was glaring over my shoulder. I glanced back and then looked again. I thought I managed to hide the double take.
Mr. Caldwell was hot.

Weariland: Book Blitz & Giveaway

Title: Weariland
Author: Mary Shotwell
Publication Date: May 10, 2016
Find: Amazon | Goodreads | B&N

For fifteen-year-old Lason Davies, it all started with a text. 


The last words of her murdered grandmother haunt Lason as she travels to England with her sheltering mother for the funeral. The crime is a sensation, but the clamoring reporters and news photographers aren’t the only ones interested in their arrival. 

As her mother’s behavior borders on erratic (on a good day), Lason encounters a stranger from Weariland, a dreary world once known as Wonderland. He petitions Lason’s help in finding a secret family heirloom, a key to saving his land—and to Lason’s past. Lason is swept in an adventure through Weariland’s unpredictable realm, encountering colorful, fantastical characters and discovering her family’s elusive history. But if she isn’t careful, she may never return… 

Mary grew up in northeast Ohio, so it was only natural for her to pursue a degree in marine biology. After studying dolphin behavior and estimating great white shark populations, she earned her Ph.D. in Biostatistics in Charleston, South Carolina. It was there, during the arduous dissertation process, where she had the idea to write a book. 

With Alice and the crazy characters from Wonderland staring her down from her bedroom poster, Mary envisioned what that fantasy realm would look like in current day. Creative writing served as a natural escape from technical writing, wedding planning, pregnancy, and job hunting. 

Mary is excited to debut Weariland (Merge Publishing, 2016), a novel introducing Lason Davies, a teenager who learns about her family's past in a world once called Wonderland. She currently resides in Tennessee with her husband and three children.

I always thought I’d face death with more feeling. That maybe I’d go out in a blaze of fury. Or I would be relieved. Instead, I’m left waiting for it with an uncertainty of feeling that leaves me thinking I’ve already passed. That my soul is empty and just waiting for my body to catch up. The absence of emotion would frighten me if I could feel. Without emotion what do I have to fight with?
I sink back into the cold rock. A light, summer rain falls around me, the damp seeping into me. I drift in my considerations as the night lengthens. The darkness outside matching the blankness inside, I’m left with nothing but time.
