Blurb:

She lamented over a ghost lover she could never have.

The last thing Kori Daniels expected to witness on a ghost tour was an actual apparition. Although she felt earth-bound spirits, she had never seen one. Already impacted by nightly amorous dreams since arriving in Savannah, her dream lover now has a face.

Jeb Crawford stares out of his front parlor window waiting for the one night a year he takes physical form. Each Halloween, he searches for the one woman, his soul mate, who can save him from his fate.

Only an ultimate act of love will bring Jeb back to life.

This novella was originally part of the limited edition set ‘Haunting Savannah’.

Works in Progress

Believe it or not, I’ve got four works in progress. I wish my muse would focus! Like everything in life, ultimately due dates have the final say in what I’m writing.

To say I’m anal is a bit of an understatement. I have four new series brewing in my head but I have two series I need to finish. As promised, I will finish Nightshade Saga (Drake’s story) and the Young Adult Zaratan trilogy this year. Finishing a series is always difficult. How many times have you read a book and anxiously awaited the next one, only to be disappointed? I was thrilled with how I ended the Worlds Apart series. It was not how I intended to end it, but a stroke of genius hit me while writing the last chapter. I hope you agree.

There has been so much negativity in our lives, I hope you enjoy escaping into the worlds I have created. Romance writers generally do not get a lot of respect, but what’s wrong with presenting a story that will always guarantee a happily ever after? Over the years, I have met many of the wonderful authors who allowed me to escape into their worlds. Yes, I go fan girl crazy from time to time!

Here is to a great 2018!!

My story is titled ‘A Cougar’s Longing’ about a 42-year-old cougar shifter who mistakenly sleeps with her best friend’s wolf shifter son. You can imagine the complications that will follow!

Here are the first several paragraphs to hopefully wet your appetite:

Samantha Harper threw her playing cards on the table in frustration. Her bridge hand was crap, just like her non-existent love life. She only had one face card, a queen of hearts. How ironic! Her reaction was born out of the fact that at forty-two, she was still alone.

Her eyes explored Elle Thomas’s living room. She had been there hundreds of times and always considered how she’d redecorate it, if given the chance. The room contained a mismatch of furniture purchased over the years, no piece seeming to go with the other.

“Pass,” her hostess said. “The Franklins are divorcing. She told me yesterday when we ran into each other at the grocery store. I thought wolves mated for life.”

Shocked by the news, Samantha hesitated in retrieving her cards. Beverly Franklin was a substitute bridge player and she considered her a friend. She was closer to her bridge friends than the extended family she had in the area.

“They do,” Nancy Simpson replied. A tinge of frustration was evident in her voice. “We should never have opened our town to outsiders. One club.”

Eclipse, California, had been settled by a pride of cougar shifters in the late nineteenth century. Samantha was a descendent of one of the original settlers. The remote community had given the cats the ability to run free in their animal forms without fear of being shot by an unsuspecting human.

In the early twentieth century, a wolf pack settled in the area. Rather than running off the dogs, the town embraced them. The pride leader believed their strength would help safeguard the community in a quickly changing world. No one saw the invention of motorized vehicles and the intrusion of roads, even into mountain communities.

“Gerald Franklin was having an affair with his secretary,” Elle Thomas informed the group. “I know it’s so cliché. Beverly didn’t have a clue.”

Samantha sighed, yet again, disgusted by her pitiful hand and the disturbing news. “Pass. Isn’t his secretary a bear shifter?”

Although a variety of shifters called Eclipse home, the multiple species didn’t interbreed. Each shifter community throughout the United States and Canada coordinated events to bring together young adults in order to expedite the joining of mating couples and prevent isolated communities from interbreeding. Samantha had attended numerous events, but never found a boy she was interested in. She had never been willing to settle to pacify her parents or the pride.

In college, she lived in a house populated by cat shifters. She became good friends with a number of the boys, but there was never a connection between anyone in particular. When she experimented with sex, it was with human boys. A shifter would have read too much into the act at that age. They were under as much pressure to mate as the girls.

Nancy’s face reddened. “Are we going to play cards or talk?”

‘Selected’ Wins 1st Runner up RONE Award for Best YA Scifi/Paranormal/Fantasy

At the InD’Scribe conference in October, I was thrilled to received the 1st Runner-up RONE Award for ‘Selected’. The 5-star review I received from InD’Tale Magazine made the book an automatic Finalist. I put on a fancy dress and attended the ceremony. It was surreal hearing ‘Selected’ announced.

The book is specially priced at $2.99 in honor of the award. Click here to purchase or gift. It’s a Young Adult book, but adults can enjoy it as well. Of all the books I have written, it is the most personal. No, I was not selected by aliens to leave Earth and travel to Zaratan, but I put 14-year-old Evelyn in the position of my main character. What would I have done facing what Kara had to face alone?

Blurb:
Devastated by her mother’s death, Emma Thorton inked her body with protection and eternity tattoos. Years later after being pulled through a portal into the

Nightshade universe, these markings brought her to the attention of a powerful and deadly vampire. Her only hope is to turn to another vampire who she is unexplainably drawn to.

Frazour lived by the sword when he was mortal and it was the reason he was converted to a vampire. He lived to kill his adversary and shied away from vampires and humans alike. Frazour is finally about to meet the enemy for a final battle when his focus is distracted by a woman he senses is his mate.

Although Emma was claimed by another vampire, Frazour will sacrifice his life to be with her. Their only hope is that they are true soul mates and will gain the powers to overcome the dangers inherent in the Nightshade universe.
