Druid, Mine is available on Amazon! 

I hope you will check it out. Here is the blurb:

Anya’s wish for a normal date—away from the old man she is caretaker for—comes true in unexpected ways when she finds herself whisked to an ancient Irish stone circle on solstice eve.

Carrick’s decision to follow the path to become an Ovate druid has not come lightly, and he plans to spend the solstice eve in meditation unless fairies or evil spirits disrupt the circle. When a feisty girl walks right up to the fire, more than sparks fly.

They each seek healing and a connection, but the darkness of summer is short, and once the solstice sun breaks through the circle at dawn, the magic of the night will be over. Even Madame Eve can’t stop the day from rising.

And here is an excerpt:

Maybe I’m the first person Madame Eve can’t find a match for. And how was it any better than just picking someone up from one of the dozen bars along the street?

Bile filled her throat. Being caretaker for the old man had filled her days but left her empty inside. I’m lonely. I need this 1Night Stand. She stifled a sob. Crying wouldn’t help anything. She had chosen her path knowing full well what the consequences would be. Maybe she hadn’t foreseen how deeply alone she’d feel, but she’d known what she was getting into, work-wise. She used to be a risk taker, impulsive and willing to try new things. Why was she so willing to settle for security now?

The town’s few buildings rose in shadowed relief in the dusky twilight around the city center like tall stones. Guardians, perhaps. Behind them lay the mountains, the wild unknown. She sat straight and leaned into the faint spray from the fountain. The cool mist spread across the back of her arms. Closing her eyes, she lifted her long hair so the moisture could reach the back of her neck.

“Aine?”

Anya dropped her hair.

“Hello?” No one.

“Aine. Let’s go.” The voice floated on drops of water and fell through the air.

“What?” No one was near.

“I’m here.” The voice settled softly like dew on her skin. The air wavered over the fountain and the water slowed.

I only had one beer.

“Come. He awaits.”

For the briefest moment, a golden light eclipsed the edge of Anya’s vision then darkness slid over her.

Pharaoh, Mine sold to Decadent!

Yay! That 1NS Stand project I was talking about in my last blog post? I finally finished editing it (worked really hard to clean it up!) and sent it in. This morning, I woke up to the kind of email we all like to get–a contract!  woot!  I am so excited! I love where the story went on its own. I had a basic plot idea, had researched the history and all, but when I wrote it–it went somewhere else. Don’t you love it when a story goes somewhere better than planned?

Anyway, happy dancing all day–and now time to get back to work. 🙂

I finished my short novella this weekend–it’s another one destined for submission to Decadent’s 1NS line. I love that line! It is so much fun to have a set of circumstances, then be turned free to write within a few parameters. I’ve read a bunch of the titles, and I have enjoyed them. Lots of diversity in the line–from contemporary, to paranormal, to sfr.

I’m in editing mode now–following some great advice from my editors at Decadent Publishing. I am a master of redundancy, but I shall conquer that demon! Nothing like highlighting your own manuscript and seeing just how many times you used the word “pushed” or <insert word here>.

As soon as I send this one off (in the next two days, I hope), I will get back to work on the two novels I have in progress. I am excited about working on both of them!

Happy Monday!
