Fall into magic and fall in love with

DARKLY DREAMING

Feared by a priesthood. Coveted by a god. Tempted by a slave. In Grace Draven’s MASTER OF CROWS, a renegade mage must battle a god for his soul and decide if his fate—and the fate of nations—is worth the life of the spy he has come to love.

Experience sword, sorcery, and mythical beings as never before in STONE GUARDIAN, the first book of the Entwined Realms by Danielle Monsch. Larissa’s sheltered world is destroyed when she is targeted by Necromancers. With nowhere else to turn, Larissa forms an uneasy alliance with Terak, leader of the Gargoyles. Will Terak be Larissa’s salvation, or her downfall?

Sometimes love is the most dangerous magic of all. In HEART OF FIRE by Kristen Painter, Jessalyne leaves a sheltered life to tame her dangerous magic by becoming apprentice to a powerful sorceress, but she’ll need the deadliest man in the realm to get her there safely. If they don’t kill each other first.

Be swept away in KISMET’S KISS by Cate Rowan. In the desert realm of Kad, a deadly epidemic strikes the palace of Sultan Kuramos. Only a mystical healer from an enemy land may have the skill to save his household. He never imagined that healer would be a woman.

Hidden at the crossroads of the world, an ancient race battles to protect humanity, even as it dies from within. Ava comes to modern day Istanbul in THE SCRIBE, the first book in the Irin Chronicles by Elizabeth Hunter. One woman searching for answers finds a reluctant guardian in a warrior whose magic is written on his skin. But does Ava have magic of her own?

DARKLY DREAMING is an anthology of five full-length novels of fantasy romance. Pre-order it now for just $0.99!

I’m a mountain girl. Something about alpine vistas makes me breathe deep while my heart quivers. That’s why I’ve yearned for Colorado since my first visit 20-odd years ago, and why I now live on the top of a mountain in the Rockies. (My short story Flirting with the Fireman riffs from a real-life experience shortly after I moved here, heehee.)

My honey and I (currently known as Dr. 4×4, and no, he’s not a fireman :-) ) were able to take a couple of quick getaways in my adopted home state. Colorado is delish.

Salida, Colorado

This was the view from our hotel window in Salida, Colorado. Hands up, who wants to wake to that view every morning?

I’ll post a few photos of Southern Colorado now—especially from the Black Canyon of the Gunnison—and more photos of Colorado’s mountainous beauty in the future. Alas, I’m no professional photographer, and in some of these I was still trying to figure out the camera on my new phone, heh—but they’ll give you a taste.

Oh, and keep your eyes out for a new release announcement soon. :)

Glacier-made valley in Colorado

Near Slumgullion Pass & Uncompaghre Peak

Near Slumgullion Pass. Uncompaghre Peak (14,309 feet high) is the rose-thorn pointy one.

Black Canyon of the Gunnison

Black Canyon of the Gunnison. You can barely see the Gunnison River in its twisty bed, but it’s down there.

Black Canyon of the Gunnison

More Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Dramatic scenery, no?

Painted Rock in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison

Famous “Painted Rock” in…yep. the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Gorge-ous, isn’t it? :D

Black Canyon of the Gunnison

Aaaand more of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. It’s a loooong way down, peeps. Yay for guard rails!

I’ve been wandering around my gorgeous adopted state and will have pics of its wonders up soon.

Oh, and news about new releases. :-) Stay tuned!

WOOHOO, it’s time for RomCon in Denver! I’ll be at the booksigning on Friday evening (6/20) with goodies to give away. I’ll also be participating in the Hot Heroes (Saturday morning) and Magical Firsts (Sunday morning) events, as well as the first half of Mimosa Madness (since Hot Heroes takes place during the second half, darn it).

FASHION NOTE: During the author events on Thursday I’ll be sporting my usual ‘do, but Friday through Sunday I’ll likely be wearing garb characteristic of my stories’ fantasy worlds, including a long wig (either purple or red, or possibly different on different days) and a fantasy tiara!

If you spot me, mention you read this post to get fun swag and magic dust. :-)

See you soon!

    More pretties of my book covers from Su! Upon judicious reflection I might reduce the text by A LOT, depending on what they're used for, but I love the colors and the feel.
