CHARM ME AGAIN by Tena Stetler

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

I’m excited to feature a sister Rose (published by The Wild Rose Press) today.  Bestselling author Tena Stetler has a new release, Charm Me Again, and it looks like a great read.  Here’s the scoop:

For several months a Scottish Highland Ghost has haunted Daylan, in his personal life, his professional life and at his forge. Yet, being a talented warlock, he is no closer to discovering what the ghost wants or why he chose Daylan. A trip to his estranged sister’s home in Colorado may have unforeseen consequences especially when family history leads him to a shocking discovery.

As his attraction blooms for Josie, a yoga instructor in his sister’s studio, he realizes there may be more to Josie than he can imagine. When an ancient rogue Fae Warrior set on revenge kidnaps her in an attempt to claim her as his own, a devastating curse comes to light.

Daylan’s world spirals out of control as he searches for Josie. Can he break the age old curse to save her and their future, or will she be lost to him forever?

A peek between the pages:

Suddenly the wind increased and changed direction bringing a cold chill to the warm day. She tugged her sweater close around her as a thin maroon line formed along the flat bottom of a dark, boiling cloud spreading across the sky. Moments before there’d been only an occasional fluffy white cloud floating in the bright blue sky. Oh, no, not again.

The line slowly drifted to vertical and spread open to reveal a sparkling interior. Four striking creatures, sharp-angled features with fierce expressions on their inhumanly handsome faces appeared. Gleaming swords hung at their sides as they slipped out of the cloud and stepped onto the ground not more than fifty feet from her and Daylan along the tree line of the property. Holy shit. This can’t be happening.

She rubbed her eyes but when she opened them the men were still there. Dressed in heavy boots, jeans, and formfitting leather vests, shimmering silver bands adorned their muscular upper arms. Two of them had thick shoulder length blond hair, the others had jet black hair hanging in waves past their shoulders.

She jumped up and opened her mouth to scream. But Daylan reacted faster clapping his hand over her mouth while still facing the advancing creatures. To her surprise, a soft giggle escaped from her lips. They look like a group of medieval bikers. Their apparent leader, his reddish sable hair hung well beyond his shoulders in waves, paused a few yards in front of them.

Available now for preorder:

Medieval Monday ~ TO LOVE A SCOTTISH LAIRD

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Welcome back to Medieval Monday!  Our theme of “Celebrations” continues, and today I’m featuring bestselling author Sherry Ewing’s To Love a Scottish Laird.

If you’re following the excerpt from my time travel romance, Night of the Owl, you can find the third snippet on Sherry’s blog: https://www.SherryEwing.com/blog/

Now, let’s read her third snippet:

He had no time to ponder the matter, for the very lady strolled into the hall with her brother and, Douglas assumed, the earl’s family. The resemblance was uncanny, and with the exception of the earl’s wife, they all had the same physical traits. But as he further observed Catherine from across the room, he could tell she was upset considering the pallor of her face. He knew the cause.

Follow along next week at Cathy MacRae’s blog: https://www.cathymacraeauthor.com

A little more about To Love a Scottish Laird:

Sometimes you really can fall in love at first sight…

Lady Catherine de Wolfe knows she must find a husband before her brother chooses one for her, but none of the knights and lords she knows have caught her eye. A tournament to celebrate the wedding of the Duke of Normandy might be her answer. She does not expect to fall for a man after just one touch.

Laird Douglas MacLaren of Berwyck is invited to the tournament by the Duke of Normandy. He goes to ensure Berwyck’s safety once Henry takes the throne. He does not expect to become entranced by a woman who bumps into him.

Before they can express their feelings, the Duke orders them wed to strengthen ties between his English supporters and the borderland, and then separates them by commanding Douglas’s escort to his home.

Yet, nothing is ever quite that simple. Not everyone is happy with the union of this English lady and a Scottish laird. From the shores of France, to Berwyck Castle on the border between their countries, Douglas and Catherine must find their way to protect their newfound love.

Medieval Monday ~ MAREK

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Welcome back to Medieval Monday!  Our theme of “Celebrations” continues, and today I’m featuring Bambi Lynn’s Marek, the first book in her time travel romance series, The Knights of Stonebridge.

If you’re following the excerpt from my time travel romance, Night of the Owl, you can find the second snippet on Bambi’s blog: https://bambilynnblog.wordpress.com/

Now, let’s read her second snippet:

There was no corn or sweet potatoes, but Vale and Bryn had managed to hunt down a flock of birds, remarkably like turkeys. There was no end to the bread stuffing, gravy, even stewed cranberries. Kitty herself had been guiding the cooks for a week to prepare enough food for everyone. They had even baked over one hundred pumpkin pies for dessert.

A little more about Marek:

Boring accountant, Kitty Petty, struggles to get through each day one at a time since the brutal murder of her husband. She spends every free moment caring for her young daughter, until the night she wakes to find her bed on fire.

Kitty doesn’t know how she got to the year 1196, much less how to get back. But if she doesn’t, her daughter will be institutionalized. Having failed to save her child from the clutches of a madman, Kitty vows to protect her future. But going back to her time means risking her own life and separating her from the knight she has grown to love.

Marek Stone wants to protect his wife from the people of Stonebridge. Katherine has been declared a demon after her miraculous rise from the funeral pyre, and the villagers want justice.

Kitty must return if she has any hope of saving her daughter. However, the knight who loves her will do anything to make her stay.

Medieval Monday ~ NIGHT OF THE OWL

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Welcome to a new round of Medieval Monday!  Our theme, “Celebrations,” is perfect for this time of year.  Every Monday for the next 11 weeks, I’ll feature a snippet from a medieval romance (mine and others) and tell you where to find the next bit of the story.

My excerpt–broken into 11 snippets–is from my new release, Night of the Owl, the fourth of The Novels of Ravenwood.  Hugh, Lord Seacrest, and his mother have just welcomed the hero’s youngest brother, Sir Robert, and his new bride, Lady Constance, to Seacrest, and the scene begins in the great hall, where they’re sharing their first meal together since the impromptu wedding.  Also new to the table is Ardyth Nightshade, an independent woman from the year 1986 who has already caught Hugh’s eye.

Now that you know the basics, onward to the snippet!

Seated between Isobel and his mother at the high table in the hall, Hugh relished a bite of strawberry tart and turned his attention to Giles, who’d been a minstrel at Seacrest for more than thirty years.  From his position in the wraparound gallery, the gray-haired musician strummed his harp and began to sing.

ʼTwas a new tune, though the subject matter was old.  A treasure beyond measure, hidden in the sea cave beneath the castle.  Or so the story went.  Whispered around the hearths of nobles and commoners alike, rumors of the Seacrest treasure had existed since before Hugh was born.

Follow along next week on Bambi Lynn’s blog: www.bambilynnblog.wordpress.com

A little more about Night of the Owl:

PhD student Ardyth Nightshade has renounced men and pursues her twentieth-century career with single-minded focus. When fate whisks her to medieval England, she meets her match in a man whose passions mirror her own. Can she sacrifice ambition for a love she never sought?

Hugh, Lord Seacrest confounds all who know him. He refuses to marry without a meeting of minds and hearts, and no lady has even approached his ideal…until Ardyth. But she’s an odd one, with unique skills, shocking habits, and total conviction she needs no man. She also harbors secrets, and in the midst of rumors, plots, and murder, trust is fragile.

A woman outside of her time. A man ahead of his. They must take a leap of faith to forge a bond that will shape history.
