I’m walking to work when this car hits a bus—except I’m the only one who can see it and the bus and passengers are fine. After I get to work, people start talking about this bus load of people who are dead or dying.
A little freaked over the incident, I go to the where they have the bus cordoned off. There, the driver of the car finds me, only it isn’t any human. It’s Death’s assistant. Turns out, I’m more than I knew, and now that I’ve been discovered, there’s a lot of people out to hurt me. However, all is not lost as Death puts me under his protection.
Lucky me.
This is the first in a series of the chronicles of The Death Caller.

It’s Cover Reveal Time for Darkest Death!

Hi!! So the time has finally come that the sequel to Darkest Valentine is making its way into the world! Darkest Summer will follow this year as well! You can preorder your copy here: https://www.amazon.com/Darkest-Death-Leona-Bushman-ebook/dp/B07MDV3T6J

Darkest Valentine is 99 cents until the 9th.

In Darkest Valentine, Lillian had a friend who kept threatening to take over everything until I told her story. So I promised her her own story, and she has been patiently waiting. Until now!

 

Blurb:

Sarah, Countess of York and decrier of false men of the ton, enjoyed a good flirt, but she had her heart set on Lord Archer. Only, for the past four years, he barely acknowledged her existence except as best friend to his sister Hermione. Sarah had hopes that he began to see her as something more, but then the threatening notes started.

Lord Archer also happens to be in the vicinity as each one is delivered. She hates the suspicions rolling around in her mind. However, Father taught her how to watch for treachery, and she couldn’t ignore the logic or the coincidence of Lord Archer’s presence, nor could she deny the pain in her heart at the thought.

Lord Archer had loved Sarah all her life, but once her parents died, he’d taken a step back, searching for a wife amongst the ton as a proper lord should, leaving her to heal. Instead, he found himself drawn more and more to Sarah as she matured into the perfect woman to be by his side. However, could she handle the secret life he led? Did she know about her father’s secret life?

But none of that mattered once she started receiving those damn letters. Someone was out to hurt the woman he loved and set him up to take the fall, and he planned to catch them or die trying. Could he also woo her and remind her of the love and trust of their childhood? Or would the situation keep them apart, or worse, kill the woman he wanted to marry?

 

Don’t forget, Darkest Valentine, the first book in the series is now on sale through January the 9th for only 99 cents, free on KU. Also available in print!

Death and destruction haunts The Dark Duke.

Lady Lillian has no desire to marry. She’s seen quite enough of male domineering and shenanigans from the species, thank you. Then she enters into a false engagement and is surprised at her feelings for The Dark Duke, but she wants more than a traditional life of the wife of a duke.
The Dark Duke is bent on revenge for his father’s death, certain it wasn’t suicide. Then he stumbles across Lady Lillian—niece of the man responsible for it all.
He saves her from being shanghaied and finds himself enamored with her, despite who her family is. In a rash moment, he asks her to pose as his fiancé—without telling her why. However, he soon yearns for more than a false pretense. She is everything he has wanted and more.
But what if she learns his secrets?
Can he convince her to give him a chance, or will he lose out her to his revenge?

Become Part of Some Enduring Legacies with A Hunter, A Witch, and A Shrew

If you love historical fiction, the the Enduring Legacy series is a collection of books for you! My contribution, which can be read as a stand alone or out of order, is A Hunter, A Witch, and A Shrew. Let’s journey to Scotland of old, where witches hid those who hunted them, afraid to ever let love in. Yet love always seems to find a way when you least expect it.

Amazon Link

Lachlann flees to Scotland to escape witch hunters, only to have one target him.

Lachlann has made a good life for himself in Scotland, learning to fight with a sword to back up and better hide his magical powers. But something or someone must have given him away because a hunter and his daughter have come asking pointed questions.

He adroitly sidesteps most of their questions, ready to run if necessary. He’d done it before, so this time should be easy, right? He might have thought so, but the hunter’s daughter, Isla, has claimed his heart despite him warding off love. Why his magic fails him now, he couldn’t begin to explain. But, can he risk death at the hands of her father just for a chance at her love?

Isla has spent years with her father tracking down dark witches…and not so dark witches…and rumors thereof. She has also spent those years trying to protect them from people like her father. She has a dark secret which could get her killed, one she wants to entrust to Lachlann, despite everything. Love hits her between the eyes the first time they touched, and now, she is stuck between her father and the man who stole her heart.

How can she choose between safety and her heart’s desire?

More, could she trust Lachlann with her secret?

Because, if she trusted wrong, the penalty was death at her own father’s hands.
