« on: July 10, 2013, 03:30:22 am »
Twenty-five years ago, a Human and a Shaper fell in love. Then the unthinkable happened and started a wedge that would drive them apart. Now, they are back in the same area and facing a danger that threatens their very lives while a bond that can't be broken attempts to reassert itself. Join Scott and Armida in a race against time to stop an old foe playing on the prejudices that span centuries.

Enjoy the ride as they fight for their rights in a world where Vampires are more accepted than they are.

Love in a world where finding a mate could be a death sentence from her people, and that is just a typical Monday.

Welcome to the world of the Michigan Shapers.



We had a lot of fun in writing this book and hope that you will have as much in reading it. It's release date is 1 August 2013, I know that it may be a bit early to try and start a booktalk about a book that you haven't read yet. We are however offering the chance for you to see a preview and rate the preview, to give us feed back. The link to do that is

I know that I may seem all over the place with this, But this is our first book and we are truly excited.

It will be the first book of a series, that is planned to have 6 books as well as Novella's and Short stories involved. Our website is Dark Roses ENT Thanks Shawn.

    No they can't, but this is more about the Shapeshifters. I was sick of vampires too, they are there. But they are muted. :D

    Press release for August 2013

    Available now from Dark Roses Entertainment

    By Shawn Hilton and Toni Force

    A debut novel that will pull at your heart. A new romance that will sink it's teeth in you.

    In the first novel of the Dark Dreams series, Fire and Ice, you meet Scott and Armida, two people who feel real in their not so fantastic preternatural lives.

    Scott: 20 years ago he was sure that he had found the perfect love that everyone, man or women, in the world looks for, then it slipped through his fingers as she ran on very cold feet. It has made him angry. It has made him cold in his rage.

    Armida: She had found the perfect man. He was everything she ever wanted or needed, no matter that her family did not like him as much as she had hoped. Then he changed and became so different that she was scared of losing everything she was to his very dominant heart. No matter how much heat she brought to the table, the fear of the dark and unknown would not leave her.

    20 years have passed and the world has moved on, they had moved on. But sometimes the world knows you have to look back and understand the past, before the future can be lived.

    Fire and Ice, this new Supernatural Romance, is set in a world that is changing, with political moves that seek to make slaves of the very independent and strong Shapeshifters, A world divided by the need for dominance and control. Based in the beautiful landscape of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Join the people who have already discovered the Michigan Shapeshifters. Shawn Hilton and Toni Force bring you a world filled with love, friendship, pain and political backstabbing that will catch the imagination and show you that just because you think someone is different then you, doesn't mean they are. Aimed at young adults to older readers, it has something for everyone.

    Fire and Ice is already proving its value with sales. This book will have you wanting more and actually asking for it for Christmas. Toni Force, born and raised in Michigan and Shawn Hilton, a retired soldier from the east coast, bring a plethora of life experience into their writing that builds a world that not only feels real and entertaining, but holds you with the fantastic and grabs the imagination.

    Get your copy of Fire and Ice now available from Amazon Books in both Paperback and Ebook for Kindle. You won't want to miss the romance, you wont want to miss the adventure, and most of all you wont want to miss the pleasure.

    Things other readers have said about Fire and Ice:

    About the Authors:

    Shawn Hilton joined the U.S. Army young and began writing as a way to entertain his mind. All his stories have romance in some form or another (even when it is a lunatic vampire who thinks sleeping in his victim's blood is enjoyable.). He likes his characters to have a thread of reality to them. Maybe their actions are fantastic and can stretch the imagination, their personalities, their reasons for their anger or other emotions all have to feel real to him and his readers. He was born in Washington D.C. but was raised all through the states of Maryland and Virgnia. He has lived in Germany and Egypt, and has traveled through Europe and looks forward to more for both research and pleasure. Currently living in Germany where he is close to his three children who always with out fail are close to his heart. He has worked as a soldier, a paramedic, and nurse, as well as in a warehouse as a everything from stock boy, to floor manager, and he tries to bring that feel of harsh reality and life lived into everything he writes.

    Toni Force has always enjoyed reading a variety of genres as long as the story is good. Romances however, have always been her favorites followed closely by fantasy or paranormal stories. Combine the two elements and she will re-read a story. She hopes the stories she writes will encourage the readers to re-read the story just because they enjoyed the ride the first time. Toni wrote her first book in the third grade, winning a spot in a young authors convention in her area. In later years, one of her poems was published in her community college newspaper. It wasn't until she was pregnant for her youngest child that her husband first encouraged her to write after he read a short story she wrote for her son . Currently, she is living in Michigan with her husband and two children.

    I was asked the other day when Book 2 would be release from the Dark Dreams series and the Answer is not until after January at least. We have several Novellas, and at least two other books that will be coming out before it is ready for release.

    Fire and Ice has been up for sale for over a month and a half now, and despite my claims and personal belief that I am a God. I have not as of yet mastered the art of typing a book a day. But it is moving along. But much like Tv and movies, it will have to wait it's turn. The reasons for that are two fold, first like allot of Authors as Toni and I start to write on something, it depends which story is jumping up and down on our brains, and screaming in our ears that it needs to be told.

    Second and this is the reason that even I hate has to be a reason. We are trying to build a career which attempting to make enough money from entertaining you, just to live off of. This means we have to write and get ready for sale things that will attract you and more people into wanting to read it. Then there is the formatting, there is the editing, the proof reading. So as time rolls on we are getting several things into the various stages. Now while Fire and Ice has sold well, we are not Stephen King, or J.K Rowling we do not make enough off the sales of just one book to say, Yep i can pay my bills. So we have to keep working on books and novellas and so on, which means that Book 2 is in the line, and the line is moving.

    Want to help? here is how Go to Goodreads. If you have read and rated the book. Write a review, tell me and Toni what you liked. Do on Amazon where you bought the book. Because we cannot know what you like and what you don't like unless you tell us.

    Love always
    Fire and Ice

    Fire and Ice the Ebook version is currently on Sale for 4.99. This is for the Ebook only and it is only a test. If it sells best at this price we will leave it at this price. If not we will reevaluate later. But if you wanted to get the Ebook and the price was to high for you, this is your chance.
