It's Amazing! 2012 is here and I'm blessed to have an opportunity to share incredible Authors with my Readers. 

The idea came to some of us as we sat around the communal Bonfire. We wanted to find a way share our stories and support others at the same time. So this is our holiday celebration for the New Year.

Authors: post a blurb with your buy links & website in the comments section below. 

Readers & I understand when you keep your excerpt at the PG-level.

As your Host for this little niche of the 'net, I will post here.

(novel is actually rated R)

From Concentric Circles

Shrouded in the mists of Avalon is a hidden legacy. Enter this in-between realm and discover; danger, love and new magic.

This excerpt is from chapter three: Magickal Bonds: Intertwined Souls

Shayla leaned into Meekal, increasing the feeling of belonging.
“Can you hear it?” he asked, rubbing his chin in her hair.
“The sunset.”
“I don’t understand.”
“Shh. There’s still time. Focus on the sun’s orb, and then close your eyes. Let the earth’s song guide your inner vision to see the sunset. You’ve been attuned, so now you’ll hear it. The ancient Celts referred to the earth’s beautiful music as Òran Mór. No human has ever created anything to compare to it because it’s the combined synergy of every living creature, earth breath and ocean wave.”
She stilled, lashes resting against windswept cheeks. A slow lift at the corners of her mouth was the only indication she heard. Meekal allowed his heart to soar, meeting hers above the earth, joining in the song.
A gentle breath escaped her as the last curvature of the golden orb slipped past the horizon. Her stomach growled.
His laughter answered. “Let’s get some supper.”
A smile lit her face as she turned and leaned in for a brief kiss. “Sounds like a delicious idea. I’m famished.”
“Then so be it, but first,” he said backing up a step, and giving a slight bow. “May I have this dance?”
“Aye. How did you expect to get down to earth?” He took a dancer’s stance, foot tapping the air, and hand waiting for her to step into his space in acceptance of his offer. “Shall it be a one, two, three waltz or a boogying swing dance?”
“One, two, three,” Shayla answered, entwining their fingers.
The Earth’s song carried them downward as they spun to the rhythm heard by few.
“Are you always this romantic?”
“Only for you, my love,” Meekal answered, as they stepped out of the Tower.

  1. Thanks, Aithne!

    My latest book is called Frank and The Werewolf Tamer. It's about a vampire who gets involved with a modern (and sexy) version of Frankenstein.

    Here are the details:

    Katherine has had a hard time finding work, mostly because she’s a vampire. Turns out, people aren’t clamoring to work with the undead. She goes to the massive theme park, Notte Oscura, as a last resort. However, she soon finds there is more waiting for her than just a job.

  2. Thanks Aithne!

    I have a paranormal romance called The Witch and the Vampire:

    Melora Merriweather is searching for a fellow witch to protect her from a scheming uncle with plans of marriage. When her carriage overturns on her journey, she is rescued by a mysterious man whom she learns is the very person she seeks. But, he’s not the witch she thought he was…

    Sebastian Collins should have left for London days ago. Now a snowstorm has trapped him with a woman who has come seeking protection, a woman who intrigues him like no other. And with each passing hour, his hunger for her grows…hunger for her kiss, her caress, and her blood.

    Concilium Blurb:

    “A tale of deadly creatures and forbidden romance”

    Leslee hit a strange animal with her car. Now she’s marked for death.

    It was a simple car accident – the animal didn’t even die – but it drew the attention of other dimensional creatures, the Cruor Imbibo. Driven by their insatiable need to feed, they have secretly devoured the dregs of society for centuries. Afraid Leslee will expose them, and put an end to their meal ticket, the Imbibo want her dead.

    The Concilium is Leslee’s only protection. Guardian of the ancient secret and the protector of humans, the Concilium fights to control the Imbibo and end their feeding frenzy. Miller works for the Concilium. Keeping Leslee alive is his next assignment.

    Now Leslee is on the run, and the only thing between her flesh and the snapping jaws of the Imbibo is Miller. He and Leslee quickly form a bond, but falling in love may make Miller’s job more difficult. And if Miller fails, Leslee will be the next human on the Imbibo menu.

    Because the Cruor Imbibo are coming, and they’re coming for Leslee.

They’ve been coming into Kelly Chase’s bistro after games for months, and they know they want her. As the attraction grows, the men realize they want more than a one-night stand - they want forever.

    Kelly’s not so sure. Yes, she wants both men. But a permanent ménage relationship? That’s taking giving her heart away to a whole new level, and a chance she’s hesitant to take. Then Leo is injured and Scott’s on the trading block, and she realizes this may be her only shot at true, everlasting love.
