The Winter People


The Winter People:


SalomeMontgomery fears winter—the cold, the snow, the ice, but most of all, the frozen pond she fell through as a child. Haunted by the voices and images of the strange beings that pulled her to safety, she hasn’t forgotten their warning to “stay away.” For eleven years, she has avoided the winter woods, the pond, and the darkness that lurks nearby. But when failing health takes her grandparents to Arizona, she is left in charge of maintaining their estate. This includes the “special gifts” that must be left at the back of the property.


Salome discovers she’s a key player in a world she’s tried for years to avoid. At the center of this world is the strange and beautiful Nevin, who she finds trespassing on her family’s property. Cursed with dark secrets and knowledge of the creatures in the woods, he takes Salome’s life in a new direction. A direction where she’ll have to decide between her longtime crush, Colton, who could cure her fear of winter. Or Nevin, who, along with an appointed bodyguard, Gareth, protects her from the darkness that swirls in the snowy backdrop.


An evil that, given the chance, will kill her.

About Rebekah L. Purdy


Rebekah L. Purdy


I was born and raised in Michigan (just look for the mitten-shaped state on the map). I’ve lived here most of my life other than the few years I spent in the U.S. Army.  At which time I got a chance to experience MO, KS, SC, and CA.


I work full time for the court system and in my free time I write YA stories. Pretty much any genre within the YA realm is game for me, but my favorites are fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, thrillers, light sci-fi, and some time travel.


I also have a big family–I like to consider us the modern day Brady Bunch. When my hubby and I met and got married, he had 3 children from a previous marriage, I had 2 and we have 1 together. It’s a lot of fun though. 


And I can’t forget my other family members–yep, we’ve got some pets: 4 dogs, 3 cats,  and 1 turtle. Everyone in the family has one…I won’t bore you all with their names (unless you really want to know). Okay, you talked me into it! Jack, Pearl, Grr…(yes that’s my dog’s name), Callie, Shadow, Mooshoo, Grouchy, and Sorbert. Other than writing some of my other hobbies include: reading (mostly YA of course), singing, swimming, football, soccer, running, camping, sledding, church, hanging with my kids, and traveling.


I belong to a fabulous writing group called YA Fiction Fantatics (YAFF) and you guessed it we all write YA!

 My Review

This was a very wintery book lol. And yes I am talking winter Fae, I’ll give that up, but with that in mind, don’t let that fool you into thinking you won’t be surprised with this one. I sure was! A girl who can see an hear things others can’t, who is completely terrified of all things winter. Magic that her family knows about but won’t tell her. It a fantastic whirl wind ride that will have you terrified of snow and praying for summer- unless you live in south Louisiana like I do, then you’ll beg for snow all year long 🙂

Salome is a girl who almost died in the winter at 8 years old. Something tried to kill her and then something else save her. No one believes her and her own mother thinks she’s crazy so keeps her on medication. But this year she’s turning 18 and things are about to get real bad for her. But not everything. She meets Nevin and Gareth who are beautiful and become her friends, she finally lands her forever crush, Colton, but he isn’t who he seems, though no one is.  And she has a really good human friend who goes out of her way to help Salome cope with the winter. Salome struggles for the whole book to figure out the mysteries surrounding the magical things and then she starts getting death threats by an unseen lady. This one will leave you guessing until the very end.

Normally I would tell you about all the awesome HAWT guys and side characters but the mystery of figuring out the good and the bad is too good, so I won’t lol but I will say that the magical world building is fantastic. I felt the cold all the way to my toes, and believe me, it’s scorching hot right now where I live! But I will say I liked her grandma and I really wanted to slap her mother, several times. Ugh!

Be ready to hold in to your seat. The mystery, suspense and CREEPTASTIC factor will keep you stuck in this book til the end. The writing was excellent and I just had to know the end. And the end is so very very well done. I loved it and I say 5 SNOWY PAWS!!

I absolutely love this series so I am stoked to share the release day goodies with you today and I have interview with Nick!! 🙂 YAY!! So let me show you! 
Sapphire's Divinity 3x
Title:  Sapphire’s  Divinity
Author:  Justine  Winter
Genre:  Paranormal  Romance


I  was  a  hybrid  werewolf  with  a  secret  destiny  shadowed  by  a  prophecy  the  Ancient  Guardians  foretold.  The  same  Ancient  Guardians  that  had  organised  the  annual  Alpha  summit  Riley  had  been  summoned  to.

Since  Jackson’s  demon  threat  everyone  was  powered  up  on  overtime  at  the  gym.  Train,  sweat,  repeat.  Train,  sweat,  repeat.

But  all  that  rage-filled  preparation  wasn’t  enough.  We  were  being  targeted  by  something  new,  and  it  didn’t  stop  there.

The  summit  was  proving  to  be  my  nemesis.  Egotistical  morons  challenged  me  with  threats  to  the  one  I  loved,  and  I  knew  I  couldn’t  endure  a  life  without  Riley.

Besides  all  of  that,  there  was  one  thing  I  was  finally  understanding  about  the  supernatural.  Nothing  was  as   it  seemed.

Not  even  me.

My Review

Well holy hot damn, this is a fantastic sequel! Luna is now adjusting quite well to her new life, but she is now learning to live with the consequences both good and bad of those changes. She has transformed into a wonderful woman, and I love how she has become so much more. She has done a wonderful job with all the changes occurring in her life. She really is a wonderfully written character. And of course the author has left us wanting so mure chore.  And Riley, dude I am having horrible thoughts about how to get rid of Luna to steal Riley. LOL Actually I am thinking that I like Luna too much that Riley is just going to have to find me a wolfy boyfriend so I can have my own 🙂 Riley has become one of the best male characters I’ve read in a long time. Of course he has some flaws, but everyone does. But he’s turned into a wonderful person, not just a wonderful alpha, and he’s definitely a mate worthy of Luna. They are one of the most amazing couples every. 

There’s a whole lot going on here. There’s fall out from the incident at the end of book one. And now, Luna and Riley have to not only take care of their pack, but go meet with the big Council. And let’s just say that there’s some horrible people who need to die. But we also get to meet new characters who are just as awesome. I loved the conversations between Luna and the Ancients. It made me giggle when it wasn’t making me have heart failure with all the big bombs dropping. The plot for this story has added even more action and mystery around these characters. It’s quite an amazing ride. 

There’s still threats, and there’s still love. I can’t wait to read book three. Really, this has become a need to have series for me. Well done Ms Justine!! Amazing! 5 FANTASTIC WOLFY PAWS!!!

Character  Interview:

Hey  Nick!  Thanks  so  much  for  dropping  by  today. How  are  you?
Thanks  for  having  me!  You  know,  right now  my  family  is  going  through  a  lot,  and  as  Beta  it’s  hard  work  trying  to  keep  everyone  from  panicking.  I’m  exhausted,  but  at  least  I  have  my  good  looks  and  humour  to  keep  me  going.

Ha!  Don’t  forget  your  self-assured  charm.
How  could  I?  [He winks]  I  make  the  ladies  swoon.  I’m  pretty  much  providing  a  service  here.  Sign-up  for  some  naughty  fun  today;  I  promise  to  provide  laughs  no  matter  the  situation.

Oh,  you’re  cracking  me  up  here!  Do  you  think  your  humour  helps  lighten  the  darkness  that’s  embarking  on  Nature’s  Destiny  right  now?
Simply  put,  yes.  I  mean,  wouldn’t  you  prefer  to  laugh  about  your  chances  of  survival,  rather  than  spend  what  could  be  your  last  days  terrified?  Fear  has  this  penetrability  that  kills  hope,  and  if  you  think  you’re  gonna  die,  chances  are  you  will  because  you’ve  already  given  up  the  fight.  So  if  I  have  to  crack  a  joke  to  cut  through  the  seriousness  then  I  will.  Plus,  moaning  hurts  my  ears.

How  do  you  feel  about  Luna  joining  the  pack?  Did  that  come  as  a  surprise?
At  first  it  did,  I  mean  nobody  knew  apart  from  Riley  about  the  possibility  of  a  white  wolf,  let  alone  the  prophecy  that  came  with  her.  But,  Luna,  man,  where  do  I  begin?  She’s  so  strong,  and  I  don’t  just  mean  physically  either.  Shane  and  I  were  waiting  for  her  to  go  into  some  catatonic  state,  but  she  never  did.  She  just  brushes  it  off,  accepts  it  and  faces  it  head  on.  She  has  the  biggest  heart,  but  I’m  worried  about  her  because  I  know  how  much  she’s  willing  to  give  up  to  save  everyone.  She’s  prepared  to  die,  but  we’re  not  ready  to  say  goodbye. 

Do  you  think  it’ll  come  down  to  that?
I  have  no  idea,  but  you’ve  seen  her  in  action.  She  carries  this  weight  on  her  shoulder  because  of  the  prophecy,  so  it  makes  her  reckless.  And  then  we  see  her  powers!  Bloody  hell,  I’m  waiting  for  the  day  when  she  finds  out  she  can’t  do  something. 

It  looks  like  it  might  be  a  long  wait!  Let’s  talk  about  Sky.  Is  there  something  between  you?
[Smiles  mischievously]  I  bet  you  were  dying  to  ask  that  question  weren’t  you?  You  know,  I’m  always  having  fun  with  this.  Luna  keeps  trying  to  scorn  me  about  Sky,  but  then  I  remind  her  she’s  shacking  up  with  my  best  friend.  I  hear  the  bells  of  double  standards,  don’t  you?  Sky  is  absolutely  beautiful,  and  she’s  straight  up  honest,  but  she’s  also  human  and  there  are  rules,  blah,  blah,  blah.  But  I’m  not  the  kind  of  wolf  that  doesn’t  say  never.  So  who  knows  what  could  happen  in  the  future? 

How  does  Lara  factor  into  this  equation?
[Looks  confused] Lara?  She’s  like  my  sister,  we’ve  grown  up  together.  I  love  her  just  as  much  as  I  love  Faye  and  Roxy.  We’re  family.

That’s  great.  Well,  I  think  we’ll  leave  it  there  today,  and  let  you  get  back  to  the  pack.  I  wish  you  the  very  best  with  the  battle. Oh wait, know any single wolves maybe interested in dating a nice, no not nice, umm, a good cook from South Louisiana? LOL Come one, help me out here!

About the Author:

Image of Justine Winter

I’ve always lived a life based on my imagination, from hopeless dreams of romance to concocting alternate realities involving supernaturals. I’m completely fascinated with anything hero-related, and often speculate which superpower I’d possess. I haven’t settled on one yet.

I was born in England, and currently reside in Wales, UK. I love to write, and most days you’ll find me happily tapping away at the computer whilst in my pyjama-clad bubble. I also spend my time reading, and if that isn’t enough I’m often in the kitchen baking up a treat.
