Cover Art and a Contract!


To forgive is divine…if he can pin his lover down long enough to beg for it.

Poconos Pack, Book 1

Ben Malone’s role as Marshall attunes him to every nuance of the pack’s wellbeing—which means he’s forced to feel every one of his mate’s hangovers. It’s the one reason Ben will never claim Dave Maldonado. Being alone is better than being with someone who lives in a bottle.

Dave was destined to be a pack Alpha until his first migraine hit at age fifteen, the day he caught his future mate holding hands with another boy. In the nine agonizing years since, he’s contented himself as Beta, but never learned to live with the pain and confusion of Ben’s rejection.

Dave’s worst attack yet sends him to the hospital—and brings them both face to face with the misunderstanding that’s kept them apart all these years. It’s too late, though. Dave is headed for Gay Pride Week at Disney World with one goal in mind. Forget Ben Malone.

Ben’s got a problem with that. Only one man is destined to hold his David. And he’ll give anything, even his last shred of pride, to win forgiveness—and the right to finally claim his mate. 

Product Warnings
This book contains explicit sex, graphic language, and male/male love scenes between two top dogs. Who knew Rock Paper Scissors could be such fun?


Isn't it pretty? I'm thinking that's Ben on the cover in all his shirtless glory. And they got the Lodge in the background! The release date for this M/M (*YES, M/M - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!) is July 5th.

And guess what?




Jeffrey Grimm is a man with a mission. His grandfather, the god Odin, tortured his twin sister and nearly killed her. Jeff would like to return the favor, but he intends to finish what he's started. To do that, he needs the world's oldest living laser hair removal candidate: Fenrisùlfr, the werewolf prophesy has decreed will kill Odin at Ragnarrok. He travels to Norway only to find that the wolf isn't at all what he expected. When the wolf becomes a man Jeff finds him sexier than he could ever have imagined. What shocks Jeff most is that Fen wants him, despite his blood ties to Odin.

Fenris has been caged for far too long. Now the one whom destiny has decreed shall be his has come to free him from his prison. Fenris will protect Jeff with everything in him, even if it means giving up his hatred of the man who betrayed him and learning to live with the horrors of toothpaste and the Internet. But when Odin gets his hands on Jeff, Fenris will stop at nothing to fulfill the prophecy... even if it means his own death.

Together the two men must fight an evil older than time to find a love that will last through the ages.

My second-ever M/M has gotten a contract! Jeff and Fenris of the True Destiny series will be published by Samhain! WOOT! An excerpt can be found at www.danamariebell.com/HowlForMe.html!


* Yup, I felt the warning was necessary. Not everyone enjoys M/M, and for the most part that's not what I write, so if you don't enjoy it please give this book a pass. I won't be writing any further M/M for a while since none of the stories in my head call for it.

Yes! I can't wait to read these books! I'm off to read the excerpt of Howl for Me, and I'll be marking both books on my 'buy immediately' calendar.

I'm not usually a m/m reader, but I'm definitely going to get these two because I love your books and both of these series.

I am so excite for Jeff/Fen!! I have been dying to read their story, that little tease about them at the end of Eye of the Beholder was just too much, or not enough as the case may be. I've been on pins and needles waiting to hear when it will be coming out!

And if that weren't enough now you have a poconos book coming out too!!!!! Tell me Julian and Cyn and due soon and I may just croak from excitement!

Congrats on both books! So excited!
