Fickle, Fickle March & Love

Ah March!  So fickle, so surprising!  Here in Maryland, we had almost 80 degree weather two days ago.  Flowers were blooming as were trees including the famed cherry trees.  Pollen counts were up!  Thoughts of gardening danced in my head as emails from local garden markets flew into my mailbox announcing they were opening early this season!  Then yesterday here came the snow and the plunging temperatures, forcing all those happy plans right out of the mind, reminding me that yes, its way too early for all those wonderful outside type endeavors.  March is often a smack of reality.  A gentle breeze followed by gale force winds.  A lovely day of sunshine that’s tipped on its head by hail and a foot of snow.  You never know quite what a day in March will bring.

Sometimes love is like that too.

A simple date that turns into something more.  A summer fling that becomes that love you can never forget.  And in the case of some of our favorite stories, that man you met might just turn into something unexpected.  Maybe a wolf, panther, owl, lion, or even in a story that still has me laughing a sloth.  Maybe he’s an alien instead of a were! Angel or demon? Dragon or ancient eternal knight? Oh, how I love those stories.  And judging from the Best of Lists, so do all of you.  So here goes our giveaway for this week.

  1. In my favorite series, Whyborne & Griffin, Whyborne turns out to have magic and then later turns out to be Widdershins, which is the town plus a whole lot more (this makes sense if you read the series :-))

    And – yay – looks like I won from the last contest. Do I need to contact anyone?

    Thanks!!

  2. I just finished Love Unmasked By Dale Cameron Lowry. From the blurb we know Aaron is a Raccoon but there was no indication Phillip was anything but human until their first night together, lol. If I remember correctly Evolution by Lissa Kasey has it’s own surprise involving Gene Sage and what he is.

    Awesome. Thank you, I didn’t think I would be one of the winners from the last contest. But the announcement for the last contest is definitely a nice start to the new week =) Thanks again!

  3. Yeah, March is a fav month of mine, too – my anniversary month of when I came out, which could be its own “He Turned Out To Be What?” story. 🙂 I liked seeing what other contributed, got some new ideas. I have a throw back to contribute – The Nightrunner series by Lynn Flewelling is a fav of mine, and Alec turns out to be an elf, and a special one at that as they learn later in the series (a double “He Turned Out” – so do I get double credit? :-).
