What harm could come from impersonating royalty?

After years on the road conning wealthy nobles out of their gold, Kiera is ready to give up her life of crime and return to her childhood home of Cearbhall. She’s got one last job in mind, one that will see her set for life. What harm could come from impersonating a country princess to marry a prince and live wealthily ever after? Except her childhood home is nothing like she remembered. The king has gone senile, his younger sons rule with terror, and the crown prince is missing. The prince she’s to wed is only interested in siring an heir, and her future brother-in-law wants to get into her skirts. Deciding the grifter’s life wasn’t so bad after all, Kiera plots her escape. Before she can steal away, she’s discovered and thrown into the dungeon with a crazed wolfborn to die.

Lachlan never thought that he’d see his childhood sweetheart once his wolfborn affliction set in. Nor did he expect to ever see daylight. Imprisoned in the dungeon since adolescence, his brothers have usurped the throne and trail evil in their wake. When Kiera lands in the dungeon with him, he recovers his will to put things right. Kiera may not remember him, but he remembers her, and Lachlan vows to save her from his brothers and their schemes.

Except Kiera wields a power unlike any other, and she doesn’t need saving. But the people of Cearbhall do. As Kiera and Lachlan fight the evil princes, they uncover a greater magic in the world around them, and a powerful magic between them that can’t be denied…

Writing Updates

Rocker Next Door-001Back to the Write Life

I got my critique back from Breathless Press and brainstormed a new background for my main character to make things more believable.  I didn’t get a fast pass but that doesn’t mean I’ll give up on the novel.  It’ll get done.

Still waiting for final edits on Stealing the Wolf Prince.  I hope to also have cover art soon so I can share it all with you fine folks.  Want an early sneak peak?  Be sure to sign up for my Newsletter.

I’m also working on a super secret project that you will ONLY hear about by being a Newsletter recipient so don’t miss out.

Feel free to like this post and leave a comment.  I love to hear from  you.

Stealing the Wolf Prince is Delayed

Nora Roberts QuoteSuccess is Never a Straight Line

Sometimes the road to success feels like a step backwards!  Stealing the Wolf Prince is going to be delayed a bit due to unforeseen circumstances.  Never fear, you will be able to purchase my lovely fantasy romance, just not this Friday.

Writing by the Seat of Your Pants will go back to its original release date of October 1st so if you like non-fiction articles, there you go.


Help Me Choose!

MusicYou like music, right?

I’m trying to select some background music for a book trailer for Stealing the Wolf Prince, my fantasy romance with Irish influence.  I’ve narrowed it down to two royalty free tracks and now I need help deciding which to use.  Clicks on the link to listen!

1)  Moorland – This has Uilleann pipes, which I love, and percussion.  Its very dark and somber, slight build through the piece but nothing climactic.  The feel is right but I fear it’s too somber for a romance novel trailer.

2)  The Pyre – This has cellos, mandolins (love!), percussion, and violins in the second half. The strings keep the Irish tone but the overall affect is medieval. I feel this has a more positive feel than Moorland but doesn’t have the mystery so much.

Both are good but I’ll only get a small 30 to 45 second chunk of music for my trailer.  Which would you more associate with a fantasy romance?  Stealing the Wolf Prince was described as a fairy tale by my editor so there is a mystical property to the novel as well.
