Cornerstone Run Release Dates and Blurb

Thanks to a savvy reader who spotted these books up for pre-order on Amazon, I now have release dates for the three books in my paranormal romance trilogy, written as Kelly Meade.

Black Rook - July 15, 2014
Gray Bishop - October 21, 2014
White Knight - January 1, 2015

You're probably curious what the heck Cornerstone Run means. Cornerstone is the name of the small Pennsylvania town where about eight hundred loup garou live and work and basically try to keep humans from knowing they exist in the world. Twelve other sanctuary towns like it are spread out throughout the country, each led by an Alpha. And a run is their word for "pack."

And since it's up on Amazon, here's the blurb for book #1, BLACK ROOK:

She never saw this coming…

Brynn Atwood is a low-level Magus whose unpredictable precognitive powers have made her an outcast among her people—and an embarrassment to her highly-regarded father.  After a frightening vision in which her father is murdered by a loup garou man, Brynn decides to prove herself by finding the killer, and stopping them at any cost.

Her target is Rook McQueen, the son of a small-town loup garou Alpha. Despite being the youngest of three, Rook is first in line to inherit the role of Alpha, a duty he isn't sure he's capable of fulfilling. When Brynn finally meets Rook, she doesn't expect the attraction that draws her to him—and him to her. 

No longer believing him a murderer, Brynn and Rook strike an alliance to find her father's real killer. But when his older brother is targeted by an unknown enemy, Rook will have to choose between his growing feelings for Brynn and his duty as the future Alpha of his community.
