A Plethora of Preorders in February!

It is only the second month of 2019 and I am only picking up steam when it comes to new releases! I have quite a few books up for preorder, with more announcements to come in the following weeks! This is going to be a big year of releases, so hang on!

A slayer and a vampire pair up and turn the supernatural world inside out.

Daryn falls instantly in love with Ernestine the moment he meets her, despite her calling as a slayer. She inspires true feelings he’d thought lost to him after centuries on the run from a cruel and vindictive coven leader, Cassandra.

Ernestine, a werewolf without the ability to shift, can’t deny the desire he inspires, even though her life’s work, her every breath, focused on ridding the world of the evil vampires. Together, their powers change into something new, and their mating becomes a beacon to all the supernatural beings in the area.

Can the fight their way out, or is their union doomed from the start?

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 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?

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?

An evil darkness forces Mykel Campbell to reveal his magical powers.

Mykel leaves his beloved Highlands in search of a wife. He has two requirements: loyalty and comeliness. Lyall has plenty of both and more. She possesses a spirit of adventure he found appealing. His attraction to her could nae be denied. Verily, his good fortune is complete. Until the darkness strikes Lyall’s village. An evil which takes magic to defeat.

Lyall resolves never to marry. She could nae imagine finding anyone who would accept her magical abilities, much less her strong skills for reading and numbers.

Then an evil shadow full of creatures of her nightmares encompasses the land, and her family is in peril. Mykel swears his sword and magic to protecting them. Would the two of them survive to have the love of a lifetime? Or would evil triumph?

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.

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.
