New Release: Gunmetal Magic

Today, I’d like to do a nine-Dame shout out to the wonderful Ilona Andrews!

You may have noticed we have a new look here on the Deadline Dames.  As Dame Keri pointed out, the madly talented Ilona Andrews designed our new page, and boy, do we love it!

But web page design isn’t the only thing Ilona is good at.  She’s also a fantastic author who, along with her husband Gordon, writes the Kate Daniels urban fantasy series:

The  Edge paranormal romance series:

and other ebook goodies that often tie into their main series.

Just last week, their newest book in the Kate Daniels series came out!  Here’s the gorgeous cover:

After being kicked out of the Order of the Knights of Merciful Aid, Andrea’s whole existence is in shambles. She tries to put herself back together by working for Cutting Edge, a small investigative firm owned by her best friend. When several shapeshifters working for Raphael Medrano—the male alpha of the Clan Bouda, and Andrea’s former lover—die unexpectedly at a dig site, Andrea is assigned to investigate. Now she must work with Raphael as her search for the killer leads into the secret underbelly of supernatural Atlanta. And dealing with her feelings for him might have to take a back seat to saving the world…

To celebrate the release of GUNMETAL MAGIC, the Dames are giving away one copy of GUNMETAL MAGIC and one copy of another Ilona Andrews book (winners choice) Books must be available via Book Deposit for international shipping, or on-line booksellers for US shipping.
