Book Birthday: To Tame a Wild Heart!

The newest book in my Zyne Legacy series is available today!  It’s also on sale for $.99 through June.

She wants her freedom.

Street hustler Audrey Taylor has carved a living out of society’s fringe using her supernatural abilities. Sleeping beneath the open skies and under the radar is all she’s ever needed. But when an ancient council of witches discovers her powers, Audrey is forced to submit to their control or end up stripped of her gifts and her memories. She knows better than to rely on or trust anyone and she’s never worked well with others, so it’s just her luck to be assigned the withdrawn and irritable falconer as her mentor. Even more disturbing is her desire to penetrate his brooding façade and uncover the passion brewing just under the surface.

He needs her surrender. 

Corvin Wright values the solace of his duties and finds peace alone among the birds trusted to his keeping, but the council no longer sees a use for his gifts. His sanctuary is in danger, unless he can earn his place by babysitting one of the fledgling witches brought to the Arcanum to train in the magical arts. That proves more daunting than expected when his novice turns out to be wilder and more broken than any creature he’s ever cared for. Her stubborn spirit and dangerous beauty challenge every ideal of the life he thought he wanted, and while Audrey wrestles against her captivity, Corvin searches for a way to tame her heart before she breaks his.

Fate has other plans.

Fall Writing Update – Through the Fog

fog-rocks-oceanIf you’ve been following along, you know that my next book is way beyond past due. I was planning to have it ready in June, July, August, and September (at which time I had to give up the ghost and accept it was going to be longer). There were too many other things going on that needed my attention this year, and my focus and energy were just sapped. The last several months have felt like a dream, and not a particularly good one. And yes, I’m talking about the election. Continue reading “Fall Writing Update – Through the Fog”

Fiction Friday: Bargaining with Shadows

hohlwen-quote

It’s Friday, so I thought I’d share a little snippet from my upcoming urban fantasy romance, To Tame A Wild Heart.

PRE-ORDER NOW!

(Delivered June 21st)

The scene below is one of my favorites, because it is the first time I’ve had a chance to delve deeper into a Hohlwen character.  The Hohlwen (Hollow Ones) are immortal fallen angels made of darkness. They must siphon the “mana” of other living creatures to survive, and Zyne witches provide the most satiating meal.  This book made me explore more about their history, their powers, and the dynamic between them and the Zyne (hint: because they pose such a threat, the Hohlwen have been conquered/enslaved by the ruling body of the Zyne, the Synod. They’re not too happy about that arrangement.)

You can see the visual inspiration for the Hohlwen on my Pinterest Board. Continue reading “Fiction Friday: Bargaining with Shadows”

Summer Writing Update

coastline-169166_1920Where has the summer gone!?!?

I find myself asking this question yet again, despite the fact that every year I vow to make the most out of the sparkling gem that is a Pacific Northwest summer. They are brief, but breathtaking.

The last few months have been a whirlwind of moving, settling, socializing, and taking part in a beautiful wedding of a dear friend. My lover has been working OT like he’s saving for the end of the world, and I’ve been hoarding what time I have to myself to focus on my upcoming release and decompress.

Cover Reveal! To Tame a Wild Heart

I’m so excited to reveal the cover of my next book in the Zyne Legacy series – the first stand-alone romance set in this world. My favorite aspect of this story is getting to delve deeper into the workings of the Zyne Synod and especially the Hohlwen (immortal wraiths/fallen angels that serve the Synod). Of course, there’s plenty of magic, action, and romance too. 😉

To Tame a Wild Heart will be released later this summer!

Blurb:

Nomad and desperado Audrey Taylor has carved a living out of society’s fringe using her supernatural abilities and the wisdom of her truck-driver surrogate mother.  Sleeping beneath the open skies and under the radar is all she’s ever needed.  But when an ancient council of witches discovers her powers, Audrey is forced to submit to their control or end up stripped of her gifts and her memories.  Audrey knows better than to rely on or trust anyone and she’s never worked well with others, so it’s just her luck to be assigned the withdrawn and irritable falconer as her mentor.  Even more disturbing is her desire to penetrate his brooding façade and know the man underneath.

Corvin Wright has dedicated his life to the service of the Synod in the hopes of proving himself worthy of his family name.  He values the solace of his duties and finds peace alone among the birds trusted to his keeping, but the Council no longer sees a use for his unique gifts.  His sanctuary is in danger unless he can earn his place by babysitting one of the fledgling witches brought to train in the magical arts.  The task is more daunting than expected when his assigned student turns out to be wilder and more broken than any creature he’s ever cared for.  Her spitfire spirit and dangerous beauty challenge every ideal of the life he thought he wanted, and while Audrey wrestles against her captivity and the bonds of responsibility laid upon her, Corvin searches for a way to tame her wild heart before she breaks them both.
