Book Blurb

After a thousand years on the run, is a little peace and quiet too much to ask?

Brijit McRaith has been on the run for centuries. Pursued by her mad creator for most of her years as a vampire, she has finally found peace and sanctuary in her native Ireland. But a modern world on the brink of war has caught up with her and after decades of quiet, Brijit finds herself on the run again. To add to her personal chaos, she becomes smitten with mortal Kelly O’Donnell, and Brijit and her initial plans to lay low fall by the wayside. With an uncertain future ahead of her, can Brijit protect her newfound love from a world bent on destroying itself?

Originally published as a three book series, Shelter From The Winter now appears in its intended form as a single book, newly edited and featuring exciting new rewrites that expand the story of Brijit.

My Review:

DW Adler has created wonderful characters that come to life in this paranormal romance novel.

In the story, Brijit, a witty vampire with great one-liners and a long history of troubles, has just moved to Nova Scotia. As luck would have it, she happens upon Kelly. Kelly is a mortal who has no idea vampires are real until Brijit comes into her life. The women fall in love, but struggle to make their relationship work. Just when things are finally going their way the world literally comes crashing down around them. 

Shelter From the Winter is a fast-paced story. The plot grips you from page one and the writing is excellent. The characters are full of life and make the pages sizzle. If you are looking for a great read that you won’t want to put down, give Shelter From the Winter a chance. You won’t be disappointed.

D.W. Adler does a wonderful job of eliciting emotions from his readers. As I read this story of Brijit’s struggles, and the destruction of all she holds dear, I cried with her and cheered her on in the end. Shelter From the Winter was packed full of suspense, action, and stunningly steamy scenes which kept me on the edge of my seat. 

My Rating: 5+ stars




Barnes and Noble



DW Adler (“Call me Don”) was born and raised in beautiful Nova Scotia, Canada. He now sweats profusely in Florida where he does IT support for a living when he’s not writing.

Don counts such authors as Anne Rice, JRR Tolkien, and Edgar Allan Poe, as well as a love for Irish/Celtic myth and folklore as his influences. He loves to read sci-fi, fantasy, post-apocalyptic, and anything having to do with vampires.

Other than sipping tea and writing, Don dabbles in 3D art and graphic design, and is a doting husband and father. He is constantly plotting how to get back home to Nova Scotia and flees there whenever the sight of snow becomes a necessity.
