Today I am so pleased to welcome Keira Andrews to Joyfully Jay. Keira has come to talk to us about her latest release, Defy the Future. She has also brought along a great giveaway. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!


It’s incredible how time flies faster and faster the older we get. I was shocked to realize that I published Kick at the Darkness nine years ago! Fight the Tide followed in 2016, and I’d initially planned on publishing book three in 2017, but you know what they say about the best-laid plans. 

I vowed to write book three in 2020 and finish Adam and Parker’s trilogy, but the pandemic hit. I just didn’t have the emotional resources to immerse myself in a dystopian virus-affected world.

In 2023, I was ready. I worked on Defy the Future much of the year to give Adam and Parker the HEA they deserve, showing there’s always love and light even in the darkest world. I love writing about found family and opposites attracting, and it was wonderful to live with Adam and Parker in my head again.

I’m thrilled that early readers loved the hopeful ending, and I’m hoping now that the series is complete, new readers will dive in. 

I’m giving away three ebook copies of book one! I’d love to know what your favorite paranormal or shifter/human romance is—please comment to let me know.


defy the future coverTo protect their pack, they must risk everything.

Adam and Parker are finally safe.

As safe as they can be in a world where the zombie-like infected still roam the night. With other survivors, they’ve built a community—a pack.

Until that peace is shattered.

How far will Adam and Parker go for family—and each other?

Defy the Future is a steamy gay romance from Keira Andrews featuring werewolves, found family, and of course a happy ending.
