               Cover Reveal for A Warlock's Dance!!
 
I'm so excited! Do you love it as much as I do? My husband claims he worked out really hard for the photo. Sorry, honey. Maybe my publisher will use you next time!
 
A Warlock's Dance is my first novella. It features characters from SNOW WHITE AND THE VAMPIRE (The Cursed Princes #2). Sweet and funny, it tells the tale of a determined heroine and the self-deprecating warlock who tries to help her. 
 
Here's the description:
 
ENCORE PLEASE
 
Giselle Swenov is a radiant opera star whose beauty is second only to her voice. That is, until a jealous enchantress strips away her talent and looks, transforms her into a mute and haggard old woman, and forces her to leave the man of her dreams at the altar on their wedding day. Now there’s only one person able to reverse the spell: Giselle’s warlock ex-fiancĂ©, Lucian Ivanu.
But three years have passed, and the ever-dashing Lucian seems to have moved on―he’s inherited a vast fortune, forsaken his scandalous powers, and is even set to marry again. Will he recognize his former flame when she shows up at his engagement party and begs for help? Can she recover the powerful magic ring needed to break the curse before it’s too late? Giselle’s plight has a darker twist as she discovers just how far the enchantress’s

       A stroke of paint and a stroke of luck. Will   
      they create magic at the stroke of midnight?

Find out in the fourth Cursed Princes novel! I just started writing CINDERELLA AND THE GHOST - and I think it features the sexiest Prince Charming yet. I know, I say that about all my heroes but when you meet Jean-Daniel Girard, a swoon-worthy viscount from the 18th century, I know you'll consider him special.

Here's a brief synopsis of this enthralling time-travel novel:

Ella Benoit has inherited a sprawling chateau in the French countryside. She's excited to start a new life without her wicked stepmother and stepsisters, but when she sees a painting of a dashing nobleman hanging in the chateau's drawing room, she realizes her adventure has just begun.

Jean-Daniel Girard can hardly believe his eyes. His true love has finally come back to him. Now he needs her to travel back in time -- to the days when he owned the chateau himself. If Ella refuses to slip through the painting so they may rewrite the scene of their tragic parting, Jean-Daniel will be forever doomed to roam the halls of Chateau de Maincy as its resident ghost.

Now where are those glass slippers Ella's father left her?

I survived oral surgery! Now it's time to get writing!!

I'm thrilled to announce that SLEEPING BEAUTY AND THE DEMON, the next book in The Cursed Princes series will be released in August 2014. CINDERELLA AND THE GHOST will follow in February 2015. Yay!!

If you like mysterious magicians, evil enchantresses, and a heroine who is beautiful beyond compare, then SLEEPING BEAUTY AND THE DEMON is the book for you. I'm having a ball drawing from the classic fairy tale while including an intriguing twist at the end. Get ready to read about a "Houdini" - like hero who cannot bear to see the woman he loves die.

                       Help! I'm getting oral surgery on Tuesday!

Don't you love when a dentist says: you are going to be really sure after your surgery. I mean: REALLY sore. Yep, that's what I heard on Friday before I scheduled my emergency procedure. Oh well. I don't know how much writing I'll be able to do next week, but at least I'll be drinking lots of fruit smoothies and milkshakes.

What is the worst surgery you ever had? And what is your favorite flavor of milkshake?

                                          Drum roll please!!

              
 SNOW WHITE AND THE VAMPIRE (Book 2 in The Cursed Princes Series) has a cover!!

                                                                         

                                       Coming December 2013 


                                      FOG AND FASCINATION 

Alba Spencer thought her past in Romania and the dark magic that haunted it was behind her forever. She is one of the first female barristers now, safe in London. But London has a dark side, too. A man named the Ripper stalks the midnight streets. There are rumors that her hated stepmother has found her again, suggestions that the nightmares of her childhood are returning. And with them appears the cursed Gypsy boy she once loved, grown into a man more seductive and more terrifying than she ever could have dreamed...                          


Dimitri Grigorescu has become a surgeon, a gentleman - and a vampire. The lusts that drive his body are scarcely under control, and even he does not truly know what he is capable of. To fight evil and confusion, Alba must rely on her wits - and a desire that overwhelms her doubts...

I'm super excited. What do you all think??

Welcome to my blog - i.e. the occasional ramblings of a writer/mom/wife/dog lover!!!

Thanks for dropping by!! As you can tell by my over-use of exclamation points, I'm gearing up for the June 6th release of my very first book!! Beauty and the Wolf is a Gothic paranormal romance set along the fog-laced coastline of Regency England and it's being published by eKensington.

Where did I come up with the idea of fairy tale retellings with Prince Charmings who become werewolves, vampires, demons, and ghosts? Where else? Disneyland. When I took my youngest daughter to the Bibbidi Bobbedi Boutique (yes, that's the real name), I realized the princess-makeover salon was filled with women and children alike. Then it struck me. We never outgrow the magic of fairy tales.

Combine that with the dark, sexy genre of paranormal romance, and my first hero, Lord Draven Winthrop, was born!!



             What reviewers and readers are saying about Beauty and the Wolf :

    "Finally! A historical/paranormal romance worth reading!"

    "It has it all: intrigue combined with a lovely storyline, secrets that keep you
    eager to discover them, a magical element and an Egyptian curse."
    - Confessions From Romaholics

    "Exciting, creative, delicious...give it a try. It is well worth your time."

    "Readers pick up BEAUTY AND THE WOLF on June 6th!"


                      Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, Kobo,
                      All Romance eBooks, GooglePlay, Diesel, Bookstrand,
                                                          and Kensington

Stay tuned for contests and more posts!
