UK appreciation month: J.A. Belfield - Guest post and giveaway

I’m so proud to be part of UK appreciation month. For my post, I thought I’d share a few of my favourite UK bands/singers I adore listening to, ones that often sweep me into a relaxed enough mode to write, that are in my car especially for long journeys, who sing the songs I connect with.
Here goes—top of my list is …
Mr David Gray. Dude, you take my breath away. From Be Mine to Sail Away, from Everytime to This Year’s Love—I can listen to you singing the entire day long and then some.
Then we have the amazing …
Adele. Soul with a twist of raw beauty. Make You Feel My Love transports me away, Chasing Pavements brings back memories, and Someone Like You is for every person out there who’s never quite gotten over a love that’s moved on. Not to mention Rolling in the Deep. Can I just say Tune!?
Because I just realised I have no bands in here yet …
The Kooks. The Kooks are kooky, and half the time I haven’t a clue what they’re singing, but I seriously don’t care because their tunes always leave me feeling uplifted. Whilst I love all of their popular songs, like Naïve or She Moves in Her Own Way, there is no denying that Seaside is my absolute favourite for sure. :)
And one more for the road …
Ed Sheeran. It would be sacrilege to end this post without mentioning this seriously awesome young dude who wows me with his crazy song writing and chills me with his quiet, yet absorbing, voice. Love, love, love Ed Sheeran. The boldness of A Team. The cuteness of Lego House. And Bump? I struggle not to cry every time I hear it.
I didn’t realise until I began how hard it would be to narrow down my choices to a few, but there you have it: some of my favourite UK musicians. Who are yours?

Jem Stonehouse, a housewife with a neurotic husband bent on keeping her in line, dreams about werewolves in, what she believes, is a bid to escape boredom.

Sean Holloway is a werewolf, living a charade within the human race, whose mind drifts to a bond he shares with a woman he hasn't met--at least, not in this lifetime.

Apart, the two are safe but live unfulfilled lives.

Together, they'll become prey to rival packs just as they have been for hundreds of years.

When their worlds collide, and not for the first time, instinct takes over. Dreams become reality. Futures are uncertain. To keep history from repeating itself, Sean must teach Jem about his heritage, convince her of her role, and win her love.

Can Jem accept her destiny before it's too late, or is her inner wolf buried too deep to save her future with Sean?
