As Christmas gets closer, I’m sure we all have more and more to do. I finally finished putting up the decorations and now I’m preparing for the release of Highland Spirit – Book 2 of The Highland Chronicles Series that is releasing on Dec. 29th.
Ethan MacKeefe has been jilted at the altar by Alana Chisholm. Now, years later when he follows his dog into a supposedly haunted castle, he sees Alana in the tower window. Can a ghost from his past be a second chance at love?
Read an excerpt, getting a sneak peek of the book HERE. And watch before the end of the month for a sneak peek at the cover of Highland Spy – Book 3. This will be Caleb MacKeefe’s story. And you’ll see more of that little pine marten that travels with him that his friends refer to as a weasel.

This year is going by so fast! Here it is almost Halloween, and once again I have a great offer for you. Ruby – Book 1 of my Daughters of the Dagger Series is FREE from now through the 27th! And if that isn’t already enough, I’ve decided to go all out and offer the rest of the series for only 99c each for the next week. That’s right, you can read the entire series for under $4. Heck, that’s less than picking up a Starbuck’s mocha in the morning.
Ruby is the eldest of the De Burgh sisters, and also the one who is a tomboy. She loves training with weapons and can handle herself well. That is why Lord Nyle Dacre, known as the Lord of Death has chosen to marry her. He wants to use her as bait to flush out a killer!
Pick up Ruby for FREE, and afterwards, be sure to get the audiobook for a discounted price on amazon. The entire discounted series is in audiobook form (as well as print) so why not treat yourself to the rest of the audiobooks as well?

Blue is here! Blue (Little Boy Blue) is book 3 in my young adult Once Upon a Rhyme Series. People of all ages enjoy this series, so give it a try. This series came about because of my interest in the hidden meanings behind nursery rhymes. And believe me, it is nothing like you think!
In my Once Upon a Rhyme Series, Raven BIrchfield digs up an old nursery rhyme book in her garden. Then, in the graveyard that backs up to her house strange things begin to happen. Evil Nursery Rhyme characters come to life, and start to possess her and her family and friends one by one. Blue is the story of her younger brother Johnny, and what happens when Little Boy Blue makes his appearance. Raven has to battle the forces working against her from the spirits, or risk losing her brother to another realm forever.
A perfect Halloween read. Be sure to pick up the rest of the series, Mary, Mary and Muffet as well.
In less than two weeks, my next book, Keeper of the Flame: Orrick will release. This is book 5 of my Second in Command Series. (The books can be read in any order.)

He chose to stay in that shapeshifting form because he is immortal. When he watched his wife grow old and die many years earlier while he lived forever, he decided he never wanted to fall in love again. That is, until he meets Lady Hope searching for the Eternal Flame. He shapeshifts back into his young, handsome self to find out her intent, but never expects to fall for her.

I’d like to thank all the readers who voted for my books in the Raven Awards. Lady and the Wolf ended up being runner-up in the Fantasy Romance Category and Highland Secrets was runner-up in the Scottish Historical Medieval category. I am thrilled and honored and very grateful to all of you for making it happen.
Drake of Dunsbard saves Brynn from being sacrificed to Dracus, the dragon of Lornoon. He is shocked to see the dragon’s fire has not harmed her, and realizes she must be the Lady of Fire that the villagers fear and call a witch.
Brynn has faerie blood running through her veins, and while fire cannot harm her and gives her power, water weakens her and can destroy her. She is thrilled to have been saved by a heroic knight, until she awakes and realizes he has brought her to her late father’s castle. She knows at once her savior is none other than the infamous Dragon’s Son. The feared man of all, and also the man who stormed her father’s castle and claimed it as his own. And while their relationship on the physical plane is rocky, Brynn has the ability to dreamwalk, leave her body in her sleep, and their relationship on the etheric plane is much different indeed.
Can two feared people work together to destroy the dragon, or will they be stopped by their haunting pasts as they realize they really fear themselves?
