New Release!

It's here! Release day for my Faery Rosette with The Wild Rose Press, Through Hell and High Water! Happy day!


Blurb:

What if your life is nothing but a spell full of lies…?

When Melaina attends her friend’s Halloween party she never expects to be thrust into a surreal world. But she finds herself irresistibly drawn to a broad-shouldered stranger who somehow knows her name. When one of the guests disappears in flames, the sexy hunk whisks her away…and spins a fantastic tale.

Oren knows Melaina is a real-life water nymph under a faery’s memory spell. Melaina is his soul mate and their betrothal restored power to the naiad people--until a demon decided he'd rather have Melaina for himself. Now, the demon has tracked her down and Oren must find a way to restore Melaina's memory before it is too late.

Melaina is astonished. Naiads? Faeries? Demons? But she can't ignore her attraction to Oren--or the way his touch is making her body remember things her brain can't...

Excerpt:
A plan had just begun to take shape in my head when I saw “him” across the room.

He stood tall and broad shouldered, his pale skin practically glowing in the light. His blond hair, slightly darker than my own, barely skimmed his shoulders and framed the most handsome face I think I’d ever seen. High, sculpted cheekbones melded into a solid jaw set with determination. His shirt stretched across a muscular chest, and the blue fabric matched my own costume.

My breath caught as my eyes committed each minute detail of him to memory. My mouth watered as my eyes eagerly drank him in. He had the bottom of his shirt tucked into the narrow waistband of black leather pants that hugged a pair of firm thighs like an embrace.

When my gaze returned to his face from the little visual vacation it took over his perfect body, I found him staring at me with a pair of ocean-blue eyes I thought of drowning in. Something about his eyes reminded me of the ones that stared back at me from the mirror each day. That fact I noted with a start. Whoa.
I stood mesmerized as he walked towards me. He moved with a grace unlike any man I’d ever seen, gliding across the room with fluid and deliberate strides.

He stopped in front of me, his eyes even more striking and blue up close, and they were intently studying me. I looked down for a moment, confusion clouding my brain. I realized we were standing in the middle of the room. Apparently, my feet had a mind of their own and decided to meet him halfway, because I had no memory at all of giving them the command to move.

Available now in digital formats from The Wild Rose Press!

Happy New Year!

Another year has come and gone! Can you believe it? Time just flies by anymore.

Now, I'm not one for making resolutions.

I know, *gasp* and *sputter*

You see, I believe that every day should start with resolutions, no matter what the calendar says. Each dawn brings with it a fresh chance to accomplish some small step towards your dreams. Because as we all know, it's not about the destination, it's about the journey we take to get there!

My journey has had its fair share of bumps and detours, but I'm getting better at keeping on my path. It might be twisty and curvy, but its my individual path, and I make the best of it! That includes having the opportunity to renew my contract for my first novel, aptly titled Second Chances, with a possible option for print availability. I'm a huge fan of the e-book revolution, but having something in print will just be a way for more opportunities to come my way. Not to mention how this attests to how much Sapphire Blue Publishing is growing in the industry itself. And Sapphire Blue has accepted two more stories in my Hell House series, so 2011 will see Fairy Fury and Vampires Don't Dance released. Also, my first release with Wild Rose Press comes out in just 2 days! I've already gotten one nice review for Through Hell and High Water, and am so excited to be able to call myself a multi-published author!

I continue to be thankful and blessed with friends and family that support my writing and help me grow.

2011 is going to be amazing, and I'm looking forward to every second of it.

How about you?
