NIGHTSHADE now available to read for FREE on WattPad!

A STANDALONE BONNIE BENNETT BOOK IN THE VAMPIRE DIARIES / THE ORIGINALS UNIVERSE.

Bourbon, jazz, and streets soaked in magic. New Orleans is an infamous supernatural playground, and the perfect place for a witch to feel right at home.

When Bonnie Bennett travels to The Big Easy for some much needed rest and relaxation, she unexpectedly encounters a few familiar faces. Despite their violent history and her resulting efforts to steer clear of Mikaelson family drama, she soon finds herself agreeing to help Klaus when his brother Elijah goes missing. Assuming they could get a little aid from the local covens, they quickly realize the eldest original vampire isn’t the only mysterious disappearance in the Crescent City.

The clock is ticking. With the help of her unlikely ally and a handful of new friends from the French quarter, Bonnie must face off with a dark force fueled by vengeance and hell bent on wiping out every New Orleans witch in existence.

*Originally published as part of the Bennett Witch Chronicles series in the Amazon Vampire Diaries Kindle Worlds. With the dissolution of Amazon’s Kindle Worlds program, I’m making the story available on Wattpad for free.

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING…

“The storyline was so well written and captivating that I did not put my tablet down until I turned the last page.”

– 5 Stars, YA/NA Book Divas


“I absolutely love this addition to The Vampire Diaries, The Bennett Witch Chronicles. There are some fabulous authors included in this series with some outstanding reads. Jena Gregoire’s Nightshade happens to be one of them. This book is full of mystery, suspense, intrigue, magic, action, and humor and includes appearances from two of the original vampires residing in New Orleans, Klaus and Elijah Mikaelson, as well as Bonnie’s Mystic Fall’s friends. Ms. Gregoire does a wonderful job of world building to capture your attention from the start to the end of this story. Bonnie and her friends are well written characters with a great storyline that includes lots of excitement, mystery and magic. This is a compelling book you do not want to miss out on.”

Okay, the reviews from NIGHTSHADE are rolling in and I’m heaving a huge sigh of relief…

I have to admit, when I decided to write in Amazon’s Vampire Diaries KindleWorlds, I was really nervous that the second I hit publish, fandom trolls were going to come out keyboard guns blazing.  It hasn’t happened yet (knocks on every wooden surface I can find) and the reviews I’ve gotten so far have been AMAZEBALLS.  Check out some of the review snippets below!

Stomping all over the fine line between a Bad Good Guy and a Good Bad Guy. (@NBCBlacklist , #amwriting)

I have a tendency to lean towards being a big cheerleader for the villain in a story. Always have. When I was younger, my favorite character in The Lion King was Scar, not Simba.  Simba can go suck it.  Scar had a way better sense of humor.  Nightmare Before Christmas? Easy. Oogie Boogie.   He had the best music.  When I was 13 years old, I read The Vampire Diaries (yes, kids, they were books loooooooong before the TV series) and I instantly fell in love with Damon. Not the severely dumbed down version of Damon you see on the TV series, but the cold, ruthless, walking nightmare that was Damon in the books. We’ll get into that later in this post.

This has been an ongoing trend for me in all venues of fiction, from books to television to the big screen. But it’s not just any villains, and it’s not exclusively “villains” per se. I realized when I was writing The Devil You Know that my affinity is for characters who walk the sometimes very blurry line between being a good bad guy and a bad good guy.

And more than anything, I love it when it’s difficult to tell which side a particular character falls on. I think not being able to figure it out is a sign of genuinely good writing.

In this post, we are going to take a look at a small handful of my favorite fictional baddies and see where they fall.

Season finales of #TheBlacklist, #TheVampireDiaries, #TheOriginals, and the dirty book I read. @raynelola @NBCBlacklist @cwtvd @cworiginals

Last week was a big week for TV junkies everywhere.  I am one of them.  I had several shows I am faithful to wrap up their seasons and I spent a good portion of the time watching them crying like a great, big freak.  This post is a long one and contains spoilers for the shows listed down below, so, if you haven’t seen those finales, you probably don’t want to proceed unless you’re cool with being spoiled.

OH!  And on top of that, I read a FABULOUS book Thursday, so, I’m going to talk about that, too!
