Melissa Haag (Mis)Fortune Virtual Book Tour

Hopeless Cover Image - LargeOur world is being judged and we remain unaware. In a world filled with people, Gabby is uniquely alone. The tiny glowing sparks filling her mind that represent the people around her, confirm it as does the bizarre inexplicable draw she has on men.

Struggling to find an explanation for her sight while dodging unwanted male attention, Gabby meets Sam. The chance encounter leads to a startling revelation - werewolves are real.

Hoping the existence of something so extraordinary might lead to the answers she is seeking, Gabby enters into a hidden society where fur is optional. There she meets Clay, the werewolf delusional enough to think he has a chance with her. Gabby's plans for her future do not include a mate, but rather college, career, and then a huge 'we'll see'.

Gabby leaves the furry hidden society behind when she moves off to college, but trouble has a way of following and finding her. When other werewolves start stalking her, and anomalies in the sparks she sees begin to appear, she must count on Clay's help or risk loosing the chance to find the answers she searches for.

These books were both awesome. They are about wolf shifters and the few select women that can be mates to them. In the first book we see Gabby. She is a young woman who has lived her life in foster care and is looking for a place to call her own. She meets Sam, an old shifter, who turns out to be a great friend. Sam takes her in when she looses her comfortable home with her current foster family. Gabby works all through high school to save money for college and freedom. There is a catch in the whole system though, mating. She has to go to the wolf packs place once a month and let the males that want to sniff her. Now you should know that she has no interest in a mate, any mate. Now with only one weekend visit left before school she gets bombarded with eligible males who want a chance. Gabby is understandably pissed about this but lets each guy sniff her. With luck on her side she walks among them and her luck holds out with no mate. She walks back into the building happy and ready to leave only to walk head on into her "mate". This book is about her struggle to come to grips with going to college and being hounded by a stubborn wolf shifter who is determined that she is his. Ok now lets add some funny. This dude won't talk to her, at all, and shows up at her house. Catch in all of this, he shows up as a dog who is adopted by her roommate. Yeah you have to read this.

Misfortune Cover Image - Large
Our world is being judged and even they remain unaware.

Michelle, another young woman with an unexplainable gift, finds herself surrounded by the previously undiscovered werewolf society. Kept prisoner for the predictions that torment her, she meekly follows orders waiting for her opportunity to run. When her stepfather dies, she takes a chance and escapes.

After witnessing Blake, her captor, grow canines, she knows he will do anything to find her. She needs a place to hide and someone to listen to her predictions so her head doesn’t explode, but knows there’s nowhere she can hide forever, and no one who can protect her… unless she can find someone just like him.

Part of the fur wearing faction wants to use her, another part strives to keep her safe. The second book of the Judgment of the Six series will raise more questions about the purpose of these gifted few and Michelle will need to fight for answers. Will what she discovers be enough to help her keep those she loves safe from an emerging evil?

The second book introduces us to Michelle. She is a young woman who has been raised by a group of bad shifters. These guys are just straight jerks. She is kept a prisoner in her house due to her ability to predict the stock market. In order to keep her in line her two young brothers are beaten when she steps out of line. She is lucky enough to escape with them and is rescued by Emmitt who takes her home. His family turns out to have a secret of their own though, they are all wolf shifters. Emmitt makes it his mission to keep her and the kids safe as well as eliminate the threat to them. I can't say much about this book without giving away the ending of this book and a bit of the first one. Let me just say holy cow you have to read them. It looks like there will be a total of at least six books in this series. I laughed and cried with these characters and hope that you do the same.

Both get 5 stars and 3.5 flames. I would say they are new adult paranormal.
