    I just adore January Jackson from the Moonshadow Bay series. She may, in fact, be my favorite of all your characters, though I’m hard-pressed to define an exact reason for that – I just connect with her so much somehow, possibly due to also having some huge life changes that have happened for me in my 40s (as in, just the last three or four years lol).

    [I am over 18 and live in the US.]

  • 10/09/2021 at 3:07 pm

    I think that one of my favorite characters is January. I really identify with, as I am in my mid forties, and am a size 16. You make all your characters feel real, but January is one the I am most like. I am from the state of Maine.

  • 10/08/2021 at 11:47 pm

    Over 18
    Live in USA (Pennsylvania)
    I love all of your characters but in the Wild Hunt I would have to say Angel. She is a nurturer and so am I. She is the one I would love to have as my BFF. I would love to have her cook for me.

    • 10/09/2021 at 12:33 pm

      My favorite character in Moonshadow Bay is Rowan Firesong. This because there is so much backstory to her that has yet to be revealed. I am intrigued. Live in the US & over 18.

  • 10/08/2021 at 9:39 pm

    I am over 18. I live in the Seattle, WA area (US). My favorite character is January in the Moonshadow Bay series because she is close to my age and is really relatable. I’m in the middle of reading Harvest Web. I started it this evening and can’t put it down! My favorite characters are always the ones who are just beginning to discover news things about themselves, like January. I’m really glad Shadow Web is out next month, so there isn’t long to wait for the story to continue!

  • 10/08/2021 at 6:32 pm

    Over 18 by many years. My favorite character in
    Moonshadow Bay is January. I live in Florida, USA.
    Would love to win!

  • 10/08/2021 at 2:42 pm

    I am over 18, in the US. My favorite character from Wild Hunt is difficult. I love Raven because I feel like I identify with her. I love Kipa because he is the sort I would be most attracted to. I love Angel because she is so understanding and forgiving.

  • 10/08/2021 at 1:45 pm

    I am over eighteen and live in the US (Arden, NC.) I love January from the Moon shadow Bay series. She is so relatable such as her age, being curvy and her past with being verbally abused. Once I read the first few pages, I found myself relating to her more and more. Not to mention, her love of cats!

  • 10/07/2021 at 2:52 pm

    I’m over 18 and live in the US.

    I love Ari from Moonshadow Bay. She takes no nonsense from anyone. She has had to fight for her love relationship.
    I love the friendship between her and January. Separated for so many years and they just pick up from where they left off. Those kinds of friendships are special.

  • 10/07/2021 at 11:56 am

    Hi! I am Brenda, 50 years old and from Colorado in the USA. I have read The Silver Stag, thanks to your sale for 1st books in different series. I loved it and am looking forward to continuing the series. I have not read the MoonShadow Bay series, as I am rather behind on all your new series. However, after using the link above and reading the Chapter 1 excerpt for Starlight web, I think I would relate better to January. I am not married and have not gone through the divorce side of things, but recently, about 4 or 5 years ago I felt as if I had lost everything due to my career falling apart. I have also lost both of my parents and totally agree with the line about how you feel with that loss no matter the age. Just as with January, after coming out of the dark tunnel, things brighten up and you can prevail. I now have a new career that I love and adore more than I thought I ever would. The gentleman who hired me is the best boss I have ever worked with. I can’t wait to get started with MoonShadow Bay!(& catch up on the other series)

  • 10/06/2021 at 1:14 pm

    I haven’t read Moonshadow Bay just yet, but I can’t wait to start. January and I are close in age, well, I’m older so that puts me well over 18. I live in the United States, Northern California. I love that Moonshadow Bay has all my favorite things, magic, mystery and shifters! I think Killian will be my favorite character. Hopefully I will get to start reading tomorrow!

  • 10/06/2021 at 12:35 pm

    I’m 32 and from the UK
    My favourite character is Phasmoria because she is basically my Mom immortalized on paper forever. Seriously though as I was reading the wild hunt series I was seeing how protective she was of her daughter and how much of a badass Phasmoria was and thought “I wish she was my Mom” then realised she basically is. Its as if the wild hunt is an alternative reality and she’s there being herself. It makes me love Yasmines books even more if that’s possible, also bonus points for me is Ravens my sister.

  • 10/06/2021 at 3:05 am

    I like Ari the best. I feel as though she is me and January is my irl best friend. She was in an abusive relationship mental and I’m sure physical too. Her exes attempted to come between us too. I was supportive to her just as Ari is for January. I live in Eastern KY but I’m an army brat at heart even (20 years later) don’t feel like I’m from anyone place.

  • 10/05/2021 at 10:51 pm

    I’m from the US (East Coast) and left 18 in the dust a couple of decades ago. 🙂 I think that’s why I resonate with January from Moonshadow Bay so easily. She’s in her 40s, like me, and has all of that life experience so she seems authentic and relatable. Thank you for the chance to win & good luck everyone!!

  • 10/05/2021 at 7:23 pm

    Definitely over 18 and have enjoyed your books for years! I have delved into both Ember and January’s realms and love them both. I think if Ember as a badass and just love her drive in life and her career as well as her relationship with Herne. She is faithful to her friends and always there when needed. Can’t wait for the next book!Please keep up the great paranormal reads!

  • 10/05/2021 at 6:55 pm

    I am located in Canada and I’m wayyy over 18.
    I love both Ember and January. But, if I were to choose 1 to be, it would be January.
    I chose January because I see so much of myself in her. Like January I am over 40 and a bigger size. And her magic, comes from her heart and reminds us all that we are beautiful powerful women no matter our age, size or marital status.
    It’s been refreshing to read a character my own age and size. You don’t get that very often.

  • 10/05/2021 at 4:24 pm

    I am way over 18 and live is n the USA.
    My favorite character is from Moon shadow Bay.
    Love Killian!! Hot, loves animals, is a vet, sweet, and loves curves? Sign me up!

  • 10/05/2021 at 1:50 pm

    Over 18, live in USA,. I haven’t read either series yet but I feel that I would love Moonshadow Bay series the most. I absolutely love the name January and love the cover as it drew me in first off. I am always looking for a mystery witchy book.

  • 10/05/2021 at 1:01 pm

    32yr old from Central Minnesota,USA. I have not read either series but the Moonshadow Bay series intrigues me the most because I have recently gone through a big life event that has me looking at the content I read differently. I find the idea of a older woman starting new after a failed life event is wonderful! I also absolutely love the ebook cover! I have been a fan of Yasmine’s creative gift for over 10 years and it would be wonderful to win! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • 10/05/2021 at 12:16 pm

    US resident and over 18.
    Moonshadow Bay January. What I like about her is that she is older, has lived through some stuff, and pushes forward. She does stupid stuff but she learns from those mistakes! It goes to show you that even as we get older and wiser, we still have some learning to do

  • 10/05/2021 at 11:42 am

    I’m well over 18 yrs old and live in Minnesota, USA. I’ll pick January Jaxson of the Moonshadow Bay series. I unfortunately have not actually read the series. But I’m more of a fan Vampires, Weres and supernatural but not the fae. So this series seems more my scene.

  • 10/05/2021 at 11:01 am

    I’m over 18 and a U.S. resident. My favorite character is Kerris from the Whisper Hollow series (Peggin is a close second), but am loving Moonshadow Bay and January.

  • 10/05/2021 at 10:11 am

    I am many years over 18, and live in Oklahoma. I think the Moonshadow Bay books look like a lot of fun. I haven’t had the chance to read either series as yet. So many books, so little time! Thank you and fingers crossed!

    • 10/05/2021 at 2:05 pm

      I am over 18 and live in the US. My favorite character is January from Moonshadow Bay. She so relatable. It’s like she’s my neighbor. Plus I’ve gone through similar situations like she has in life. Starting over, being older, dealing with cats, and discovering secrets you didn’t know about.

  • 10/05/2021 at 9:13 am

    I’m over 18 and live in Yakima Wa.
    I haven’t read them yet, but when I do I’ll start with Moonlight Bay. Her story sounds similar to mine, I feel I’ll be able to relate to her on so many levels. I already feel sad just reading the excerpt, I sure hope things get better for her! Now I’m going to have to go get the book

  • 10/05/2021 at 6:34 am

    Hello I’m Stephanie I’m 38 n live in the USA. I can most relate to and like Raven! She’s amazing and I have a lot in common with her style wise. Not the dresses but being goth! I love the colors of her hair also . Plus that she has a gargoyle for a pet is just awesome!

  • 10/05/2021 at 4:39 am

    I am over 18 and am in the US.

    Having not read them yet, I would choose January because though I bet she definitely gets into things crazier than myself, she’s in my age range. I cant say that about a lot of the books I read. It’s refreshing.

    Thanks! Jamie

  • 10/05/2021 at 3:00 am

    I’m over 18 and I live in the US.
    January from Moonshadow Bay is one of my favorites. She is a great character with so must growing and learning throughout the series. I can’t wait for Shadow Web.

  • 10/04/2021 at 11:01 pm

    I am over 18 and live in the US.
    I think I would like the Wild Hunt series more because— while I can appreciate an older protagonist— I don’t think I could connect to January as much since I’m a younger reader. Ember seems more up my alley. I also got the first four Wild Hunt books on sale so I’m already better equipped to start reading that one, haha.

    • 10/04/2021 at 11:44 pm

      I’m from the US, Ohio actually.

      I love the Moonshadow Bay series! So looking forward to this new book!

      And I would say January is my favorite character. She’s older and a bit wiser now. She’s been through some hardships but she’s finding her way. I like that in a character!!

      Thank you!!

  • 10/04/2021 at 9:06 pm

    I am absolutely over 18 and I live in Houston, TX, USA. My favorite character is Yutani as of late (still trying to catch up). I love that he is related to Coyote and all the hijinks that entails. Love your books.

  • 10/04/2021 at 8:09 pm

    I’m over 18 and live in the US
    I’ve been a fan since Ghost of a chance and have all if the new and rereleased Indie books. I LUV the Moonshadow Bay and think January is the best!! Curves rock!! My favorite character in Killian, I really appreciate a man who’s head isn’t turned by string bean women. I can’t wait to see where January and him go next.

  • 10/04/2021 at 7:55 pm

    I’m over 18 and live in the US. January is your favorite character. She’s middle aged, strong and real . She’s not a Barbie and she has a inner strength that inspires me. Can’t wait til tomorrow!

  • 10/04/2021 at 7:47 pm

    I love your books. They are very entertaining

  • 10/04/2021 at 7:23 pm

    I’m over 18 and live in the US. I think I’d be interested in Moonshadow Bay. I’ve recently been listening to some over 40 paranormal series, and this one looks pretty well constructed.

  • 10/04/2021 at 6:33 pm

    I’m over 18 and live in the US. I’ve bought the print versions of the first three books in the Moonshadow Bay series, but I haven’t started reading them yet. What drew me to the series is the idea of a “middle aged” woman having to start over and figure out what her “second act” is going to be. I’ve never been married, but I’ve been working on a “second act” of my own.

  • 10/04/2021 at 5:23 pm

    I a way over 18 and live in the US. My favorite character is January because she has curves and loves them. I’m trying to start loving mine as well!

  • 10/04/2021 at 5:05 pm

    I am over 18 and live in the US. I think Raj is one of my favorite characters. I love that little gargoyle. Maybe it’s the mom in me since I have a child and he has a lot of child like qualities. His backstory really resonates with me. I love that not everyone knows he can talk and he finally started talking to Kippa, Ember and Angel!

  • 10/04/2021 at 5:03 pm

    I am over 17 and live in the US. I have to choose Angel from The Wild Hunt because she somehow finds the strength to get through all of the horrible things that have been thrown at her.

  • 10/04/2021 at 4:54 pm

    I amnover 18 in the US. I would have to say January is my fave because even at her age she is still learning and improving herself. She gives my encouragement to keep pushing to better myself.

  • 10/04/2021 at 4:49 pm

    I live in the US and am definitely over 18.

    It’s a hard choice, but I absolutely love Talia. She has a snark and an edge that I really appreciate.

  • 10/04/2021 at 4:33 pm

    I am over 18 and live in the US.

    In the wild hunt series I love Raven. She reminds me alot of me. She is curvy, strong, loyal and even though has had trauma and family issues , She gets over them and grows more and more.

  • 10/04/2021 at 4:27 pm

    Ia m over 18 and live in USA.

    My favorite character is from Wild Hunt. I love Angel and how she grew in the series from each book as she faced unexpected issues in her life from DL going off to a wolf shifter family and fighting into the war against the Dragons.. Plus she is mean cook/baker.

  • 10/04/2021 at 4:25 pm

    I’m over 18 and live in the US.

    I love all the characters but Angel is absolutely one of my favorites. She’s been through so much but still presses on. How can you not love someone who even when their terrified never lets her friends down!?!

  • 10/04/2021 at 4:20 pm

    I’m over 18 and live in the US

    I’d say January, because she had the strength to leave a bad situation. When she moved to her hometown, things started falling in place for her. I wish I could have that happen to me

  • 10/04/2021 at 4:12 pm

    I am over the age of 18 & live in the US. My favorite character is January. I love how she had the determination to move on from a bad situation. The determination to reinvent her life and become the person she was meant to be.

  • 10/04/2021 at 4:11 pm

    I’m over 18, and live in Bentonville, AR. January is by far my favorite character. She gives me hope that that chapter of my life will be full of love, fun, and adventure. Especially when the world tries to tell me it won’t be!

  • 10/04/2021 at 3:54 pm

    I am over 18, live in NE Ohio. My favorite character is Ember, she is such a tough woman, even though she is often unsure of herself and what is happening with her life, she always makes sure to stand up for her friends.

  • 10/04/2021 at 3:48 pm

    I am over 18 years old and live in the US. Since I just started the Silver Stag, I will say Ember is my favorite. She seems to have a strong spirit.

  • 10/04/2021 at 3:42 pm

    well I am 55, live in Bethany Oklahoma . I love Raven so great and strong. I have been reading a lot at work trying to catch up . work in PBX at major hospital and reading takes me away . so Thank you

  • 10/04/2021 at 3:36 pm

    I’m definitely over 18 and live in the US. My favorite character is Raven. I love the fact that the challenges she faces are relatable, especially in how she reacts to them. It makes her really relatable for me

  • 10/04/2021 at 3:15 pm

    I am over 18 and live in the US.
    My favorite character in the Moonshadow Bay series is January. I love how she moves into her parents’ home and makes it her own. She reflects on their lives, wonders about the power that each one holds, and is fascinated by their relationships with others in the community. She learns so much that could be life changing–who is related to whom, who had intimate relationships with whom.

  • 10/04/2021 at 3:10 pm

    Way over 18 and live in the US. I ordered Starlight Web the other day, but haven’t read it yet and preordered Harvest Web. I like the description of January, her talent, the special town she lives in and I like stories set in a spooky, abandoned asylum. I bought the books in the Chintz n China series when they first came out, so enjoyed them, just ordered the latest short I missed. Thank you.

  • 10/04/2021 at 2:47 pm

    i am over 18 and in the US I love January she is over 40 and starting over and she has spunk . Moonshadow bay was a wonderful series and i enjoyed following January as she started over and made a new life for herself .

  • 10/04/2021 at 2:46 pm

    I am over 18 and live in Idaho USA. I love all the characters. When I first started reading Wild Hunt, I was a little lost going back and forth from Ember to Raven point of view. However, I did grow to enjoy seeing both. I used to think Raj was my favorite character. I do love him. I love all the cats too. After reading Moonshadow Bay, I am really liking Rowan. She is a powerful witch, midunderstood by a lot of people, but she is ok with that. You can tell she truly cares for January. So, I’m going with Rowan 😉

  • 10/04/2021 at 2:21 pm

    I’m over 28 and live in the USA
    When I started reading the moonshadow bay series I fell in love with January, I just love how she takes control of her life after a nasty separation from her husband and found a new life in moonshadow bay, with her family and friends, I love her friendship with ari and how her and killian just click together. I can’t wait to continue to explore her world.

  • 10/04/2021 at 2:13 pm

    I’m definitely over 18 and live in the UK.
    My favourite character well I’m going for Raven in the wild hunt. She’s just awesome strong, powerful but still learning.
    And Moonshadow Bay well has to be January, she just shows that you can still be awesome even when you feel your over the hill x

    • 10/04/2021 at 4:12 pm

      I’m over 18 and live in the US.
      My favorite character in Moon Shadow Bay is Killian. He is not pushy with January and he does not hover over her. He loves her just the way she is and would drop anything to help and support her. He is genuine and kind.

  • 10/04/2021 at 1:12 pm

    So, I’m definitely over 18 and live in the U.S. At this point, my favorite character is January. I turned 40 and the beginning of the pandemic when my state was still under quarantine and it was a difficult time for me, to say the least. Moonshadow Bay gave me a character I could relate to in terms of getting to know yourself again after a bad relationship and learning to be comfortable in your own skin-regardless of size.

  • 10/04/2021 at 1:04 pm

    I’m over 18 from the US. My favorite character is Ember. I love a strong woman who can take care of herself.

  • 10/04/2021 at 12:32 pm

    I am over 18 and live in MN. I love Raven…she is caring and I love how she took Raj in and loves him like the big baby he is. She is one tough cookie!

  • 10/04/2021 at 12:04 pm

    I am over 18, live in the US and dang it I hate choosing! I just did a reread of the Wild hunt series so I am going with Ember and Raven. They are both strong in their own way. I love Ember and how she tries to help, wants to be part of something bigger, and her and her bestie are half of the same soul. Raven is strong, caring, and confident. I love that she is curvy, has Raj and takes care of the siblings.

  • 10/04/2021 at 11:54 am

    Im over 18 and in the US. My favorite would be January. Dont get me wrong i LOVE all the characters from both series but as a 40 yr old woman there just arent enough out there that i can really relate to. Im a lot more like Raven in real life but the stresses and experiences January has does resonate with me. I love reading about someone my age. The PWF

  • 10/04/2021 at 11:37 am

    I’ve read the first book of the Moonshadow Bay series, and am anxiously awaiting the second! I love January because she feels like a kindred soul. She kind of makes me want to be more like her, and kick some occasional butt!!

    I live in Salem, Oregon and I’m definitely over 18! I am also the mom of 3 rescue kitties: Ollie, Raven, and Smoosh.

  • 10/04/2021 at 11:09 am

    I’m over 18 and in theUS. I think my favorite character at the moment is Teran from Moonshadow Bay. I find her so relatable and 100% the kind of witchy aunt that I want to grow up to be! I’m also super intrigued by Rowan in the series, I love how smart and cunning she is.

  • 10/04/2021 at 11:02 am

    I am over 18 and line in the US. My favorite character Raven, I live how she overcame her torture & troubles and rebuilt her life with love and friendship.

  • 10/04/2021 at 10:54 am

    I am over 18 live in th US
    My favorite character is Ember I like how she faces her fears and insecurities head on.

  • 10/04/2021 at 10:30 am

    Over 18 (DOB 8/14/90), located in PA, USA.
    This is such a hard choice, but I think I’m going to go with Rowan Firesong from Moonshadow Bay.
    She’s my favorite because she’s spunky, confident, powerful (and not just magically), and demonstrates a lot of qualities I truly admire. Not to mention her enigmatic story; I can’t wait to learn more about her!!!

    • 10/04/2021 at 1:31 pm

      I am in the US and well over 18. I really like January. I love that’s she’s in her early 40’s and starting over. She has lived of life and know what she wants and doesn’t want. Her life has changed drastically and she’s living it to the fullest.

  • 10/04/2021 at 9:14 am

    I am over 18
    International, i am from Germany
    I love a lot of your characters so this question is not easy to answer

    I love January because she get her life back in self control when her live before crashed

  • 10/04/2021 at 8:45 am

    I’m over 18, live in the USA and my favorite Character is Raven. She is just such a little spitfire! And I love her love for her familiars and those she takes care of. 🙂

  • 10/04/2021 at 8:31 am

    Over 18. USA .

    I love January because she is smart, sexy and 41 years young with Curves. I turned 50 in June, so it was really cool & empoweringto see a woman dump a man, deal with paying the bills stress on top of getting to know herself again.

    Then you give her a totally hot & kind neighbor.
    I can’t wait to see what is next.

  • 10/04/2021 at 8:15 am

    I am over 18 and live in the US. My favorite character from the wild hunt series is Talia. While her powers were stolen from her and thus her identity, she has displayed resilience and strength of character to become an amazing woman.

    • 10/04/2021 at 10:28 am

      I am over 18 and live in Florida.
      I’d have to say that I think Raven is my favorite character. I love that she has purple in her hair (so do I) and her goth mode of dress. I love gargoyles and her love for Raj would be so me. And of course the fact that she is with Kipa. Wolves are my favorite animal! I’d have to say that if I was reincarnated, it would be as Raven Bonetalker

    • 10/04/2021 at 1:37 pm

      I am well over 18 (64 actually) and live in the US.

      I like ember at lot because of her fighting skills and strong attitude. However my fav is Talia. She is a fantastic researcher, an excellent problem solver and I adore her sparky, crusty attitude. A woman after my own heart.

      • 10/06/2021 at 12:53 am

        I am over 18, by alot. I live in the Pacific Northwest…WA state.
        My Favourite character from Moon shadow Bay is of course January. She’s the best of both worlds. A smart independent woman, and a paranormal force of Nature. I enjoy my visits to her and her stomping grounds.
