So much is going on! Today I’ve got giveaways, excerpts & News.
1st, I’ve re-released my Dracones Series. (Well, bk 6; Dracones Guardian releases Feb 14th!) They’ve all gotten shiny new covers, or upgraded covers, and book 1 was thoroughly re-edited! Books 2-6 have been light edited/proofed, and they are all re-formatted. They are in KU. Check them out HERE https://www.amazon.com/Sheri-Lynn-Marean/e/B01B89QHVM
2- I’ve finished Dance with Darkness, book 1 in the EfPP (Enforcement for Preternatural Protection) This is a Dracones Allies spinoff, and yes, there is crossover. 🙂 It’s up on pre-order & currently on the way to Laura LaTulipe, my wonderful Editor! You may have seen the cover on my website’s front page, or social media, I love how it turned out, and the story became so much more than I expected.
3- As if I didn’t have enough on my plate, I joined 2 anthologies, one is Dragons and Mages, and the novella I wrote for it is: Dragonsworn Guardian. It’s out in paperback, and will release in ebook in April 2020. The 2nd anthology is the Feisty Heroines set. We’ve got a great bunch of authors, and are pushing to reach USA Today bestseller. It takes a lot of work/sales on Amazon, iBooks & B&N, but will be a dream come true if we make it.
How can you support us? For only .99 cents, you can help us achieve our dream! Plus, once you pre-order, you’ll get a bundle of 26 books from the authors for FREE! Subscribe HERE! https://www.subscribepage.com/s7r6b2

Blurb & Excerpt of The Sunstryker’s Assassin:
A genetically engineered dragon shifter …
… she was trained to follow orders and kill without question.
Only the strongest survive, so Treya climbed to the top and became one of the most elite assassins to ever come out of the compound on Icarus. With food in her belly, and a roof over her head, she’d been content—assured that the lives she ended deserved it.
But did they?
When she began to have doubts about her missions, she was given a brother. The director thought that would keep her in line, and on task. They couldn’t have been more wrong.
For the first time in her life, Treya has someone to care about other than herself. A reason to do more than just survive. And she’ll die, and take out everyone around her, before she lets anyone harm her little brother. He is her sole reason for living, or so she thinks.
Get it now in the Feisty Heroines set, and discover a twist of the heart that threatens all Treya holds dear.
Treya watched, heart in her throat as the black and gold dragon—Ash, for it had to be him, turned his large head. He seemed to stare right at her.
Treya shivered. There was no way he could see her, could he?
He roared, a sound that shook the realm, then shot off the cliff, tail flicking sharply with a crack behind him. He arrowed his body straight down, going way too fast.
Treya held her breath, certain he was going to crash into the rocks. She exhaled as he leveled off at the last minute, and was shocked to realize she was shaking, that her knees had gone weak. She continued to watch, heart in her throat, as the dragon rocketed straight up into the sky. He entered a bolt of lightning, and swiftly followed it ever higher.
His whole body was illuminated energy, a brilliant glow that stung her eyes and made them water.
He roared again, a tremendous vibration that again rocked the world.
Treya stood rooted to the spot, mesmerized, as the legend called Ash became one with the storm.
Never in all her years, had Treya ever seen anything like the mighty creature. He owned the sky, the storm, the lighting, and as he gathered speed, it traveled with him. Bolts of light—energy—stayed with him, while others following in his wake, whipping and sizzling lashes of fury.
He drew the storm, pulled it, used it and shaped it, roars echoing the furious booms sweeping the land. The rain came down harder, faster, plastering Treya’s hair to her face.
Something stung her cheeks, and it was a moment before she realized it was tears. Treya couldn’t remember ever crying in her life. She blinked, unsure why she was reacting this way. Yet her heart continued to pound in her chest as emotion choked her.
As the dragon finally disappeared from sight, her heart calmed.
I decided to change things up, and will be moving all my books into Kindle Unlimited. It’s a scary yet exciting move, and one that I hope will end up being a good decision. I’ll also be making some cover changes. I love my covers, but some need a little spicing up. So wish me luck as I start this endeavor. My goal with all this is to do a relaunch of all my books in the near future. 🙂

Want an excerpt of Dracones Guardian?
Heaven’s Gates 818 AD
He ignored the warning signs, now Satan laughed and Heaven wept.
Jaw clenched, Zandraziel’s large, midnight wings lay pinned to his back. They’d been fighting the same war, over and over. Something had to change.
Silence thundered painfully in the deserted corridor. Even his noiseless strides—eating up the endless path they trod upon—was an affront. Tears of crimson seeped in from all sides, like a spiderweb, slowly overtaking the shining gold veins in the pristine white marble covering the walls and walkway all around them.
This travesty should never have happened.
“Why do we walk? Are you not eager to witness my punishment?” Ezayzel sneered. His black hair was matted with the blood of his brethren, and striations of bright silver in his black wings had absorbed the blood, turning them a deep red.
Ezayzel raised his bound wrists, smeared with the remnants of putrid demon icor, and wiped the sweat and grime from his face. “No answer?”
Zandraziel met the betrayer’s defiant stare. Ezayzel’s black eyes, which normally shone with brilliant shards of silver, sparked red. A reflection of the blood he’d spilled? Had to be. Still, it was disturbing.
Fury surged, then was replaced with satisfaction when Ezayzel shivered.
Yes, as an archangel Zandraziel could easily transport them to their destination with just a thought, so why hadn’t he?
Zandraziel forced himself to relax. It wouldn’t do to let anyone, especially Ezayzel, know how badly he’d been shaken. His desire to make the other angel pay didn’t matter. Things had to be done in a certain way. Rules had to be followed. It was even more crucial at this time of unrest.
They passed one of many vast elysian fields, the final resting place for those who’d lived and died and did so in such a manner that they earned a place in Heaven. They were happy, peaceful places, and though Zandraziel could enter, as an angel he didn’t belong. Still, to wander from one to the other, to let the calm content nature seep in was often refreshing. Needed even. But now, for the first time, the sight of children laughing and giggling, dogs playfully chasing each other, cats grooming themselves, and adults holding hands with their loved ones, failed to ease his soul. Instead, it fueled the wild burn.
Those souls had no clue how close they’d come to having their very existence ended.
…. As always, Sheri-Lynn Marean knows how to rock my socks off! …. ~Sandra Hould
…I LOVE this series. Dragons, Archangels, good guys, bad guys… The characters are well thought out, developed and show an amazing propensity to evolve. Ms. Marean is extremely skilled at weaving an emotional rollercoaster ride of a story. I laughed (a lot!), cried (get a box of tissues ready!), cheered, hissed, wanted to reach in an shake a couple of characters and fell in love over and over. This book contains enough backstory and focused resolution to be read as stand alone, but why!?! You’re going to want to read this series from start to finish. … a sign of a great book… you get to the last page and scream “Noooooooooooo! I want more!” If you love reading JR Ward, Patricia Briggs, Gena Showalter or Deborah Cooke, you need to add Sheri-Lynn Marean to your “Next to be loved list.” ~ Daewalker1
5 Stars***** Omg!!!! I LOVED Zander’s story!!!!
Or as Genna might say “Zander Daddy” is So Worth Reading, and It Be Awesome!!! Sheri-Lynn Marean has always brought such excitement and passion to all the characters of her Dracones Series, but Zanders was Epic!! ~Sharon Richmond
Just wow! …I love that all the characters are present in this book and they go on this journey with Zander or should I say because of Zander… there will be hard times, sad times, dark times along with happiness, joy, rebirth or excitement. Tough choices will be made… the future for some will change and for others it may stay the same. Uncertainty will dog a few other characters but Redemption will come at a price. Loved this book. ~KarmelRead2665
Guardian really is the epitome of what a paranormal/fantasy romance should be. An archangel, the Fallen, Druid witches, dragon shifters, yup this book has it all. Then add in a great romantic tale with perfect leads in Zander and Chloe and I end up sad I can only give it five stars. ~ The Mysterious Amazon customore
Wow just wow what a great series. Zander story pulled me right in. I couldn’t put it down it had me on the edge of my seat I cried and laughed and I cheered them on… ~mflora
Hello magical reader! I can’t believe it’s May already and Dracones Guardian’s release day is just next week! That’s right, May 8th! I’m super excited about it, and am running a few giveaways. Will put the link to the awesome dragon necklace I’m giving away. I just love it, don’t you?
It’s been a busy year, and my plan to write/finish 6 books hasn’t happened, though I have started on them and more. Right now, I’m super excited about Casstiel’s release on Aug 30th, and know you are going to love it. I even made a book trailer!
You may have noticed, but I switched Dracones Awakening to a paid book. It was time. That doesn’t mean I won’t give away copies now and then in my FB Reader group, Newsletter, or in other promos. 🙂
I plan to do a live video on FB within the next couple weeks, (providing I can figure out how) so stay tuned, plus my next newsletter has Tierney’s interview in it, so make sure you’re signed up to receive my Newsletter. Take care and have a wonderful rest of the summer.
Time has flown by, and I am busier than ever! I have so much planned for 2018! Saberthorn has been expanded and releases on Feb 15th! The Audio version of BK1; Dracones Awakening, just released and I love how Tor Thom and Charley Ongel narrated it, they did a great job and there were a lot of voices/Characters!
I am presently working on Zander’s story in the Dracones, along with Cass’s story, which is bk 2 in the Dragonkind ~ 52 Realms spinoff. I am also working on Eternal Lover/Darrian’s story and another which I haven’t titled yet, but is about Tereck. These two are in the Nightwalker ~ 52 Realms series. And yes, they all interconnect. I have a goal to write 6 books this year. 🙂
Dracones Rogue has been the best release I’ve had yet, thank you all for your pre-orders! AND for all those who got their review up rightaway! You all rock! I want to say a special thanks to my PA & VA’s for all their help as well. Barb and Mindy, you are both the best!! Thank you to Amy Lynn and Diana as well, the FB Party on Thursday was a huge success and I couldn’t have done it without you!
During the party I met and made a lot of new friends, gave away a lot of goodies, (I love giving away goodies! Hehe!) I did up 3 drawings of black wolves in honor of Soroyan and a leopard in honor of Thaniel, the first time I’ve drawn in about 2 years! I have given some prints away, listed them on my Etsy Store, and will give more in the future! Stay tuned, I plan to do a big giveaway for Christmas!!! 🙂
Wow, I’ve already sold more pre-orders of Rogue than I ever have of any of my previous books. Of course, I now understand a bit more about how to promote them, lol. I am so excited for you all to get your hands on the Big Bad Wolf’s story! 🙂
I am also super excited about the first spin off book: Saberthorn. It turned out better than I could have hoped and my beta readers are loving it! I also have a kick ass cover, that I can’t wait to show off, but alas~Patience! LOL. Saberthorn will release late October in the Scorched Boxset.
I am pleased to announce that book 5, Dracones Rogue, is now up for Pre-order on Amazon!
Soroyan was meant to be King of the wolf pack. Raven was an avenging angel sent to patrol the Fallen—until evil warrior witches attacked and sank them both into darkness with no room for anything or anyone but vengeance.
A promise to his dead mate and hatred kept Soroyan, an immortal wolf shifter alive. But four-hundred-years is too long. With his volatile power under tight rein, he’s done his duty to protect his pack. Only now, a purple-eyed female he tried to hate, has shattered the ice around his heart.
For twenty-years Raven has hunted the enemy—closed off and alone. Until the big bad wolf awakens her. He sets her blood on fire, except she also senses a dark void eating away at him. Afraid to feel again, Raven must decide how much she will give up to save the male who just may be her second chance at love.
Book five for readers 17+ If you enjoy dark, sexy wolf shifters, dragons, angels and other magical beings, get Dracones Rogue and fall in love with Soroyan and Raven.
