There is a possibility of more books in this world, but WAR OF HEARTS is a standalone paranormal romance. :)

UPDATE: The 1st two chapters are on my website :) http://bit.ly/2xUHctp

My current WIP under my pen name S. Young. I'm so excited!

Another Teaser!

WAR OF HEARTS: Is a full length standalone paranormal romance novel by Samantha Young. (This is her first time writing a paranormal novel). Spoken in 'Dual POV's' This is Thea Quinn and Conall MacLennan's story. Whilst this was a standalone, it made me believe that there may be more books in the future.

Conall wanted to touch Thea. Everywhere. And he wanted her to touch him. It was a haze that made his heart race, his breathing deepen, and everything else in his world fade out. All he was left with was want. For this woman.

Thea Quinn is a 25 yr. old woman who looked like a perfectly normal human, but knew she was different. She’d had otherworldly abilities for as long as she could remember, but still had no clue what she was. She’d long ago given up the dream of having anything more, and for the last six years she’d been alone hiding in the shadows. Ot

Holy...WOW. I am HOOKED. Line and sinker on all of the words. On this amazing world. On what I'm desperately now hoping will be a series. Because this book seriously blew me away.

I'm a HUGE PNR fan, and so it goes without saying I'm also ridiculously picky when it comes to the genre. But considering how much I adore Samantha Young's contemporaries, I knew without even reading the blurb to this book that I had to have it. And when I finally read the blurb? I was frothing at the mouth to get my hands on it.

Do you know that feeling when everything fizzles out somehow?

This is what I felt most of the time



And I can tell you the exact moment when all my excitement faded away. Tension ran high until the "enemies" part turned to "lovers". The transition was logical but kinda 'sudden' and therefore fell totally flat for me. People will probably disagree but this is just how I felt.

And then it began... I found myself doing other stuff and felt absolutely no desire tofelt.

Title: War of Hearts
Author: S. Young
Release date: October 1, 2019
Cliffhanger: No
Genre: paranormal romance

“A wolf is only as strong as his heart, and my heart belongs completely to you."

I've been a reader of Samantha Young's for many years, but I'd never read any of her paranormal books. When I saw the announcement for War of Hearts, I was so eager to check it out. I haven't been able to find a ton of new books in the genre to catch my eye, so this was a more than welcome treat! You get a little bit of everything with this one: action, suspense, forbidden love, and mysteryromance

4 Stars! Haven’t read a good paranormal/supernatural book in a while and so glad that I’d heard about this one! Author Tillie Cole gushed about this book on Instagram and I knew I had to read it!

She’s right to gush - it’s fast paced, action packed with loads of emotion and strong characters!!

Would love to read more books set in this world. I could see that happening in companion novels, which I hope will happen *fingers crossed*

Very entertaining, well written story!

Highly recommend.

Everything about this book was intoxicating addictive! 
Thea Quinn is such a badass heroine! I love female leads that exude power and beauty. 
Conall MacLennan is DIVINE!! Male perfection at it’s finest. He’s a little bit possessive yet fair-minded. He is protective of Theo but he doesn’t bulldoze over her.

Samantha Young’s War of Hearts is action packed, filled with angst, steamy senses and suspenseful to the T. 
I couldn’t put this book down and I guarantee that you won’t be able to stop reading it until the early hours of the morning.

I am a HUGE Samantha Young fan and I absolutely loved this book. I hadn't connected to her recent novels as much as her older books but this turned everything around. It's been awhile since i read a paranormal romance and War of Hearts made me wonder why I waited so long. This book had adventure, intrigue, love and friendship. The relationship between Thea and Connall was a steamy slow burn that left

This was my first paranormal romance of Samantha Young’s and I really did enjoy it! PNR holds a special place in my heart so when I heard SY would be writing a new book in this subgenre, I was jumping for joy. And not only is it PNR, it’s SHIFTER PNR! War of Hearts dives us into a fantastic, new paranormal world that I’m really hoping we get more of. I loved the main characters (there’s even a scene where they’re forced to share a bed in a hotel) and even though the book wasn’t perf

Wow! I am so in love with this paranormal romance! This is an enemies to lovers story based on Scottish myths, folklores and legends with a wolf alpha male and a powerful heroine. Story telling at it's finest with a heart stopping romance!

Scottish men who also happen to be Alpha wolf of their packs are apparently my weakness. I just could not get enough of Conall MacLennan. He was fierce lover and protector, a bit possessive and also the sweetest talker. He has a special ability to track people and is approache

S. Young, best known as Samantha Young, will take you on a roller coaster ride with her debut into the Paranormal Romance genre!

Thea Quinn is a 25 year-old powerful supernatural whose on the run from a sadistic man named Jasper Ashforth. See, Thea doesn't know what she really is and Jasper wants to use her for his own personal gain.

So Ashforth seeks the help of Conall MacLennan, the alpha of the last wolf pack in Scotland. Conall is great at tracking and he's will

I’ve been reading Samantha Young for 6-7 years, if my memory is not failing me.. I am very familiar with her style, with her stories and I always loved the message she manages to pass on. Family is the most important element she uses and throughout her books she inspires us to do the same and love each and every member of our family. Friendship is also valuable for her and this warm feeling is growing deep inside every reader, because the message is loud and clear, you can’t miss it. 😊

‘He’s important. His future affects your future. He’s important, Thea.’


War of Hearts by Samantha Young felt like the kind of old school paranormal which we love so much, the kind that feels like pure adrenaline inducing indulgence. Otherworldly beings, mythical creatures, drama and thrills, heat and passion. Paranormal romance is one of our favourites and this story absolutely confirmed why.

Scottish werewolves. Immortal Faes. Lots and lots of cringe-worthy violence. Unfortunately, I didn't realize what I was letting myself in for, never having read any of Samantha Young's paranormal stories before. (I've read a few her Young's YA novels - all well written.)

I figured I would give this one a chance: War of Hearts is equally well written, although certain sections

Absolutely fantastic. It's been a while since I have read a really good PNR. Thea has had such a hard life and has so many well earned trust issues. Conall has a lot riding on finding Thea and bringing her to Scotland. Such a great story with many twists and a marvelous HEA!. I hope S. Young makes this a series with some of the great side characters.

Don't get me wrong, I liked this story, even loved it at some moments especially at the end but this isn't Samantha Young which I'm used to. Maybe it's that this story is written at the third person narration, but simply something is missing in the whole story to make me be addicted to it.

This was an interesting paranormal world created by Samantha Young that was overall something I could invest in for this book but also for a series ahead. It’s been a while since she’s written in this genre and since I’ve read her older fantasy/PNR but I guess it’s like riding a bike because it worked for me.

WAR OF HEARTS focuses on Thea, a human type of being from unknown descent and difficult to label. She was a loner and she’d been on the run for a long time. I really liked how he

War of Hearts was everything I was looking for and more! I was anticipating this from the time it was announced and could not contend my excitement when I finally got it. It was gripping. It was adventurous. It was extraordinary!

Thea on the run and hiding was caught by Conall, alpha of one of the strongest packs in the world, and was to be brought to someone who was going to give Conall the one this he desired the most- his sister’s life back. He would do anything for her and a murde

S. Young is Samantha Young’s paranormal romance pen name. I was so excited to read this book and it did not disappoint. This book is set up so more can follow. I really hope we get more. I think this is just the beginning. I do wish that the villain wasn’t so obvious from early on. It didn’t really hurt my enjoyment of the story. The hero is a hunk Scottish werewolf. I’ll take one please. I love how kicka$$ the heroine was. I’m already ready for the hopeful next book.

I’ve never read Samantha Young’s previous paranormal novels, but I know she loves this genre. We can find her style in her way to describe her characters and her country. I really enjoy the story, the mythology and the evolution between the two heroes. Thea is a very strong and lovable heroin, her journey is a hard one. Conall is an alpha but he’s able to respect Thea’s decisions, which I appreciate. There’s a lot of action, of violence, we are never bored.
