Could You Give Up Your Independence For Love? Guest Post by Julie Belfield (@Jabelfield) #blogtour #Eternal

In celebration of Independence Day here in America, I thought it would be sorta fun to lasso UK native author, Julie Belfield for a guest post on the basic theme of Independence. Ms. Belfield, always a good sport, readily agreed to stop in and share her thoughts on independence as it relates to her upcoming release, Eternal.

Without further ado and delays, I present you with Ms. Julie Belfield.

COULD YOU GIVE UP YOUR INDEPENDENCE FOR LOVE?

Well, could you?

How about if that loss of independence was what kept you safe?

I’m talking about paranormal romance, of course.

I mean, a human woman meets a supernatural dude and suddenly finds herself thrust into a world where she’s seriously weaker than most she encounters … it would a dangerous situation to find yourself in.

Right?

And if said supernatural dude is worth his salt, he’d do his damnedest to keep you safe.

Right?

But just how much of the reins would you be willing to hand over to him when it came to protection? To lay that amount of your trust in one person would undoubtedly strip away a little of your independence, right?

But what if that was your best chance of staying alive?

What if that was the only way you could stay with the one you love?

It wouldn’t have to mean flinging yourself into his arms like a damsel in distress at every sign of danger. It wouldn’t have to mean being locked in a padded cell to avoid all possible self-damaging situations. Nor would it mean never seeing the light of day again, or being denied the right to pick up heavy boxes, or being refused time in the kitchen lest you break a nail, or answering the front door should somebody call, or getting to go shopping and spending quality time with friends or family …

However … just supposing you’d become the only female, living within pack of male werewolves who would go to the ends of the earth to protect you like the prized gem you are?

Meet Jem Stonehouse. I’ve just described her life. Yet, somehow, she’s still happy.

Could you be?

Or would living by rules you didn’t get to make drive you nuts?

Happy (belated) Independence Day to all the American folks, by the way.

A review of Eternal by J.A. Belfield

Eternal by J.A. Belfield
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read Darkness and Light, the first novel in the Holloway Pack series, so I was really interested to see what this prequel novella had in store for me. I was not the least bit disappointed.

In this short, we meet the original Sean and Jem (circa 1800’s). If you read Darkness and Light, you understand what that means. I really enjoyed getting a look at the beginning of the Sean/Jem saga, and seeing how that first pair managed to “make it”.

I love the Sean in this one and how adorably gruff he is. I particularly liked the way he was so afraid of Jem’s mom when he was trying to muster the courage to ask for her hand in marriage. Ms. Belfield did a great job sinking the reader into the historical 1800s setting and dealt with the…
