✨ Guest Post ✨
Hello everyone! Thank you, Addison, for allowing me back on the blog! Today, I’m here as both of me, or all of me, or whatever we want to call it 😆 I’m Ofelia Gränd and as of January 2021, I’m also Holly Day.
I write M/M Romance in all possible and impossible subgenres. There is no difference between the names when it comes to pairing, heat level, or length. The only difference is that Holly’s stories all are written for a certain holiday.
The release we’re here to talk about today, Howl at the Moon, isn’t a newly written story. It’s a box set of four stories with a werewolf as one of the main characters in every story. But we put it together to celebrate Howl At The Moon Day… or Night depending on which site you look at.
Howl At The Moon Night is celebrated annually on October 26th, and it encourages you to imitate a wolf and howl at the moon. Yeah… 😅
I did a quick count now, and between the names, I have thirteen werewolf stories. I believed I had written more! 😆 Ah, well. What I was going to say was that in none of them, is the wolf shifter in sync with the moon. I don’t know why. I don’t write a lot of pack hierarchy either.
But if you believe werewolves shapeshift around the full moon, you might want to remember that there will be one on the 28th. So keep inside then and maybe read a book.
As I mentioned above, this box set is of four stories – two from each name. One a little longer and one a little shorter. They don’t have a lot in common other than all of them being fated mates stories, and not everyone is thrilled about being mated.
In The Blood Witch, Nick wants nothing to do with the supernatural world, and he has no plans of staying with the werewolf king. In Soul Eater, Sandy was killed by wizards, so when he’s brought back and finds himself drawn to one, he tries to kill him. Too bad he’s a ghost. In One Would Be Enough Jerico has left his pack because he refuses to take a mate, but then he’s locked up in a basement together with some poor human he shouldn’t care about, but somehow does anyway. And lastly, we have The Cake Shop where all Torbjorn wants to do is bake things. He doesn’t want to talk to people coming into his bakery, especially not some wolf shifter. He can ignore the pull he feels toward him, so why can’t the stupid wolf?
Soul Eater is a Halloween story, so if you’re looking for something to read right now, perhaps start there! 😄

Maybe having a mate isn’t for everyone.
Howl at the Moon is a set of four M/M romance novellas with growling werewolves. Somewhere out there, four individuals are going about their lives, unaware they’re the fated mates of wolf shifters. And when they find out, being over the moon doesn’t quite describe the feeling. Will everyone end up happily mated in the end? Read and find out!
Contains the stories:
The Blood Witch by Holly Day: Conri is king, but someone is trying to take him down. Nick is a blood witch, who is in Conri’s territory but refuses to see him, which puts him on the top of Conri’s list of suspects. When he goes to confront Nick, things don’t turn out the way he’d planned. Nick is his destined mate, but he doesn’t want anything to do with Conri. Conri needs Nick, but can he convince him to fight by his side?
Soul Eater by Ofelia Gränd: Detective Thaddeus Ezax is in over his head. He’s a wizard in the Paranormal Investigations Department. While most children can cast a location spell, Thaddeus can’t, so when he gets a kidnapping case, he is forced to get creative. He finds a werewolf skull with a ghost trapped inside, accidentally releases the spirit, and somehow forms a connection with it. Can things get any crazier?
One Would Be Enough by Holly Day: Teo has worked hard to achieve his dream of owning a house. When he refuses to sell it to a pack of werewolves, they kidnap him. He finds himself locked up in a basement with Jerico. Jerico shouldn’t care about the human, but when he learns he’s in danger from his former pack, he knows he has to find a way to get them out of there. But for how long will Jerico be able to keep Teo safe?
The Cake Shop by Ofelia Gränd: York is attacked by a rivaling werewolf pack. Injured and exhausted, he takes refuge in a bear-owned bakery. Torbjorn doesn’t do people, he doesn’t do wolves, and he will definitely not mate one no matter what the pull in his heart says. York has finally found his mate, but Torbjorn refuses to let him stay. How will he make Torbjorn understand he means him no harm when he refuses to talk to him?
About the Author
According to Holly Day, no day should go by uncelebrated and all of them deserve a story. If she’ll have the time to write them remains to be seen. She lives in rural Sweden with a husband, four children, more pets than most, and wouldn’t last a day without coffee.
Holly gets up at the crack of dawn most days of the week to write gay romance stories. She believes in equality in fiction and in real life. Diversity matters. Representation matters. Visibility matters. We can change the world one story at the time.
