Veil of Thorns ~ Cover Reveal!

I’m so excited to finally share this!!!

I’ve had it for months but wanted to wait until I was closer to release.  This is book 2 in my Skydancer contemporary fantasy series.  Teaser below.
VeilofThornsCover

When a fallen angel arrives on Oracle Briana Spurrier’s doorstep promising a way to free her true love from his cursed imprisonment, she’s willing to defy both Zyne Law and Cosmic order to strike a bargain with him.  But the journey will take her to the far reaches of the globe and into a spellbound forest that is the lair of an ancient and evil enchantress.

Bri will need her Wolfkinde Familiar–Lucas Moncrieffe–by her side if she hopes to survive, even though that means inviting a lover from centuries ago back into her life.  As Bri navigates the trickery of the savage immortal world, her power continues to grow and she faces the most frightening question of all: can she embrace what she is without becoming one of the monsters?

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than to rely on or trust anyone and she’s never worked well with others, so it’s just her luck to be assigned the withdrawn and irritable falconer as her mentor.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.

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”

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.

Fiction Friday: Illuminated

This is an “added scene” that takes place several months before the events in Skydancer Book 1. Astrid is one of my favorites, and I look forward to telling more of her story as the series expands. For a glimpse into the world of the Zyne Legacy, including what all of the characters look like (as children and adults), visit my Rain of Ash Pinterest Board.

Astrid wasn’t an Oracle. She’d only studied the basics of divination, and even that was sketchy. Still, she thought, zigzagging her way down the jagged hillside to the beach, it was Ostara – the Spring Equinox. For the briefest of moments, her little part of the earth would be cast in equal parts light and shadow. For the briefest of moments, the energies of the Conduit would be in perfect balance. If she was lucky – and prepared, which she was – she could maybe get a tiny glimpse of the future.
