Book Description

Seventeen-year-old Laylah Le Croix has a rich father, mansion, and servants. Yet she is lonely and neglected. Her father would rather work than speak to her. At the academy she is bullied and mistreated.

When Weres attempt to kidnap Laylah, she is saved by the mysterious Donil Silentshadow. Donil rouses feelings in Laylah that make her question her life and her father's animosity toward her handsome rescuer. Confused by these emotions, she seeks answers from those closest to her and is rebuffed.

She must make a choice. Obey her father's edicts or follow her heart to learn the truth about her past.

Editorial Reviews

Review

A story full of mystery, action and suspense, Werelove: Dusk Conspiracy is a new twist on an old genre that leaves readers with a satisfied adventure to enjoy and remember. --NightOwlReviews.com (awarded Reviewer's Top Pick)

From the Author

The first book in the Werelove series, Dusk Conspiracy, is very special to my heart for a variety of reasons but the major reason is because of one particular person, Nelson "Grandpa" Williams.

In 2004 after leaving my home state of Virginia and moving to Florida, I was temporarily jobless and depressed. I went to the local library to get something to read and to take my mind off my troubles. One of the kind librarians asked me as she was checking out my books, if I was a writer. I told her I'd considered becoming one but hadn't really done much. She smiled and led me to the community room where a writer's workshop meeting was taking place. That day would forever change my life both personal and writing-wise.

I met Nelson, Meredith and Elissa Malcohn that day and after that, they took me under their collective wings and opened my eyes and creativity to the world of writing and publishing. That first year with them was amazing but then, like always my personal life got in the way. I disappeared off the writing map, for the next 4 years and experienced many things.

When 2008 rolled around, that dark period of my life was behind me and I had a new resolve. I wanted to get published. I entered the NaNoWriMo contest that November and at the end of that month had the first 40,496 words of Dusk Conspiracy written.

I attended the next writer's workshop meeting, excited that I finally had produced something. Nelson, who was the leader of our little group, gave me one of his infamous raised eyebrow looks when I sauntered in bubbling with happiness. He took the offered first chapter, looked me straight in the eye and said, "I don't know why I should read this. You never finish anything and probably won't be I die." 

Now, you have to understand. Nelson had gotten to know my bad habit of writing 1-2 chapters, quitting, and then starting on something new. He didn't think I would have the staying power necessary to write a novel. I also believe that he knew I needed some drastic prodding to get my butt in gear. And it worked.

I buckled down and July 31, 2009, nine months after I wrote the first word of the novel, I finished. I took it to the next writer's workshop meeting and with glee handed it to Nelson. I had let the group read the novel as I wrote it so they were up to speed. 

He gravely took it, arched that eyebrow and said, "Good...but don't get cocky. This is only one."

I had to laugh but it was such a great feeling. My happiness at finishing a first full draft was tempered by grief when a month later after attending a writer's workshop meeting, Nelson went home and was rushed to the hospital. He passed away a few days later. Though my heart broke at such sad news, I took some comfort in knowing that I had managed to get a smile of approval from one of the most influential people in my life.

So, Nelson "Grandpa" Williams, thanks for the kick in the pants. I couldn't have done it without you.

2.0 out of 5 stars Horrible ending August 17, 2010
By Lynn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The main character needed to develope faster....whinny and timid can only last so long before we need to see some growth....

Hated the ending. Point 1) If the book is going to be just the first in a series, be more upfront about it. Point 2) If a book is going to be a part of a series of books you must resolve more of the plot points. It actually ended as if ending a chapter.

I would not recommend reading intill more books are published in the series. Otherwise you will be very frustrated and feel it was a waste of your time.

4.0 out of 5 stars A cage, a girl, a boy, history August 13, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
WereLove should have gotten 5 stars. The plot was great, the action, actually detailed and there, the love cute and romancy. The reason I gave it fours stars? I hated Laylah's character. I know her father always put her down and she never could stand up on her own, but it bugged me. She didn't even get stronger as the plot progressed, perhaps she believed in herself a little more, but I felt like it ended where it began, with a little more knowledge.

Laylah's father is a were who is obsessed with his work, which we're not sure what it is about yet. Laylah's mother is dead, died in a were battle that she knows nothing about. And Laylah grew up thinking she was human with a crazy over protective father figure. Along comes the supporting cast. We have Britta her human and best friend, the only one she's got, the random kids at her school that harass and beat her up every day, Donil the mysterious dream/real guy who also happens to be the Alpha of the SilentShadow clan (she has no clue), and a wide variety of other weres who support her best interests, or not. Oh and Zina the crazy Alpha werewolf who loves Laylah's father and wants Laylah dead.

The story starts out as one big sad day for Laylah. Her father hates her, well he's actually really just indifferent, and she is always grounded. No boys, no dating, no parties, vegie shakes, secret medicine, no love, no late nights, no going out at all... you get the picture. Then she meets Donil and she starts to yearn for more. She feels it inside her, it's just as though she can't access it. Meanwhile Zina is planning to kidnap her and kill her, thereby nullifying the threat to her in the form of Henry's (Laylah's father) affection. There are also small political wars going on and secrets within secrets. I love it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing worldbuilding, sweet heroine July 18, 2010
By Tiger
Format:Paperback
From All-Consuming Books: Reviews by Tiger

Year: 2220. Planet: New Terra.

Laylah Le Croix is a werewolf/werepanther mix, and she's just about the only person who isn't aware of that fact. Her father, DNA researcher and alpha werewolf Henry Le Croix, hid Laylah's heritage from her after her mother's untimely death. Keeping Laylah in the dark is a dangerous move, because it leaves her unaware of the group of rogue weres who view her as an abomination and would love to kill her. But Henry doesn't stop at lying to Laylah about her unusual genetics; he keeps her pumped full of a drug that suppresses her shifting abilities, leaving her as defenseless as a declawed kitten. Her tyrannical father keeps her under an absolute rule which Laylah seldom violates until she meets Donil Silentshadow--a werepanther alpha with whom she feels an instant bond. Donil's encouragement and affection may be just what Laylah needs in order to seek out the truth about herself and grow into the self-sufficient, strong woman she needs to be to face the violent challenges that await her.

My favorite heroines are usually strong, driven, make-it-happen types of girls, but Laylah's sweetness and vulnerability won me over. It's easy to understand why she's so timid, since she's spent her whole life being neglected and emotionally abused by her dad. At first I thought Henry was just a gruff crotchety guy who simply didn't understand his daughter or know how to connect with her--kind of like Captain Von Trapp from The Sound of Music--but it soon became apparent that he was a card-carrying villain. I started to grit my teeth every time he entered a scene. With a parent like this, it's no wonder that Laylah is shy and quiet.

5.0 out of 5 stars You have to read this! June 7, 2010
Format:Paperback
Beautiful Laylah LeCroix has everything a teenager could want. She has a nice house, nice clothes and servants, someone to drive her to school every day and a loving family. Or does she?

The seventeen-year-old is bullied constantly at academy not to mention at home too. Her father is constantly working and never has time for her. He finds all kinds of things to ground her over. So much so, that Laylah has never been to her best friends' parties! All she can do at home is be obedient and hope that her father won't find anything to ground her for...again.

One day something goes wrong at school and her father goes ballistic to the point of giving her a smack. Laylah has never been smacked in her life and runs out the back door only to be kidnapped. Or is she? Laylah runs for her life into the forest as she is chased by Zina's weres. Does she have the smarts to escape the weres?

In WERELOVE: DUSK CONSPIRACY we meet Donil Silentshadow who falls in love with Laylah. He even says that she is his mate in life. There is a problem with Laylah and Donil getting together since Henry hates the whole Silentshadow family! Will Laylah ever be able to return Donil's love or will Mr. Le Croix find a way to keep them apart?

Meanwhile, while Laylah is falling in love with Donil, Zina McFin is trying to take over the were's world. In order to do that she has to kill Laylah LeCroix! When she takes the were's world over, she'll be `the' alpha but why kill an innocent young woman?

I highly recommend this 384 page science fiction/fantasy. This book is full of the supernatural, romance and action. There is a new twist on every page! Also, at the end of the book is a glossary that explains each term. WERELOVE: DUSK CONSPIRACY will keep you telling yourself, "just one more chapter, just one more."
