UNLEASH Cover Reveal and Preorder

I'm really excited for the launch of my book UNLEASH. This book has been in my life in some form since 2010, when I wrote a (horrible) draft of it for NaNoWriMo, which I had decided to do  the day before. It went through a few attempts at rescue before I realized I had to mulch the whole thing. A few years later, a story I was really proud of grew from the ferment.

So, of course, when it came down to commissioning a cover for it, I reached out to Starla Huchton. I was not disappointed.

Are you ready to see it?

Are you sure?


I KNOW, RIGHT!?!?!?!?!!?!?!!?!?!? It's so good!

So, without further ado, I present to you all...


Craving a gritty, kickass heroine?

Coming in May from Lauren Harris, a Contemporary Fantasy for those who love guns, magic, & romance...

A deadly price for freedom. A power she can't control.

Helena Martin doesn't know who she hates more, the sorcerers who fired the magic-laced bullet or the gang-lord master who used her mother as a shield. Both hunt the remnants of her pack and the only way Helena can protect them is using her newly-unleashed magic to lead the two factions away.

With a coveted book of spells as bait, she flees Miami and heads for her mother’s Minnesota hometown. There, salvation comes in the form of a dog rescue willing to take in a different kind of stray. The illusion of a peaceful life is seductive but with sorcerers and bounty hunters sniffing around every corner, Helena fights to keep her past, her pursuers, and her unstable power a secret.

Then she discovers it’s not the spell book her enemies are after, but Helena herself, and the strange power she can barely control. When her master’s bounty hunters threaten her new home, Helena realizes that protecting the people she’s grudgingly come to love leaves her with one option: join the sorcerers who killed her mother.
