‘Tis the season … for death.

Murder reminds Detective Helene Collias of Holly PD that crime doesn’t respect holidays. And the last victim she ever expected to find in her case files is the sister of her old flame, Sean Grant. Ordinarily, Helene’s psychic gifts give her an edge but this time, that gift has short-circuited. Could her lingering attraction to Sean be blurring her abilities, or is something more sinister at work?

This one is…well, a little higher on the heat scale than my other books. If you’d like it, it’s available at Createspace or Amazon.

But why?

Worse, she definitely doesn’t need an attractive mortal man distracting her from her duties. Of course, needs and wants are two different things.

Now, Caitlin will stop at nothing to save her beloved husband from insanity and suicide, even if it means she must embrace her destiny and become a witch.

Cover art by Kim MendozaSynopsis:

Battling mounting debt, Stacy Macken is determined not to lose her historic art gallery. When Aaron Fielding appears and offers to help, she fights to keep the attraction sizzling between them from clouding her judgment. He may be her savior in disguise–but can she trust him?

Aaron intrigues her with tales of the Tuatha dé Danann, sworn warriors who protect humanity from the monsters seeking their destruction. If Aaron can prove what he claims, she would give up anything to help–even the gallery he claims is sacred ground. But with her property set to stage the next epic battle, she needs answers. An old family diary will confirm the ancient legend is true, if only they can find it in time.

If the battle is lost, the enemy will take control of Earth for the next five hundred years. Stacy and Aaron’s budding love might only complicate things.

You can get it here.

I hope you find something you’ll enjoy!

Wishing you all a bright blessed Beltaine!

My Beltaine altar by author–and yes, those are flowers from my garden.

I never have procured an appropriate goddess and god in love image for my collection. For instance a Celtic god and goddess that might fit this Beltaine day, one of the Celts four high holidays?  That’s one of the things I’d like to do…someday, you know. That and spend Beltaine in Ireland. Who knows? Maybe one day…if only we didn’t have to fly to get there! *shudder* But if the hubby goes with me….*thinks* ahem… Getting back to the clear, educational thoughts about the day…

And hey, how about that? Beltaine, under its German title Walpurgisnacht, ties into my forthcoming book…:) More on that later….in the meantime, enjoy this joyous time of year, y’all! *hugs all around*

And for another little chuckle, this time, I’ve got another movie song stuck in my head!

Synopsis:

Unless Stacy Macken can stave off her creditors, she may lose her historic art gallery–a loss she can’t afford for, she suspects, more reason than one.

Have you had a chance to read it yet? If not, now’s the time! :) As to the doom part (hehe), I’ll let you read and decipher that on your own.

An ancient warrior calls for advice–Feb 2

wheel of the year ;Brenton.eccles,; wikipediaHappy Imbolc to all my friends who celebrate it. For those who don’t know, Imbolc (also known by the names Óimelc, and Candlemas) is the celebration of the first signs of spring, in Celtic lands, and legend. The day was dedicated the ancient goddess of fire crafts, fertility, and inspiration (among other things) Brighid.  (Also the Catholic saint Bridget but for our purposes, it’s the dedication to the goddess Brighid that is important). Imbolc is a cross-quarter day, half way between winter and spring, and one of the four high Holy days in Celtic mythology celebrating the first signs of spring. The day  also looms huge in my paranormal romance novel, Passion’s Sacred Dance.  Since that’s the case–and this is a sneak peek Sunday post, it seemed appropriate to give you an excerpt from that book.

Passion's Sacred Dance

cover art by Kim Mendoza

Aaron put in a call to the only person he thought might be able to help him figure out how to convince Stacy to believe him—the only one who could help her understand what they needed to do.
“Can you come by?” Aaron blurted when Isaac answered the phone. “I need your advice.”
“What’s happened?” Isaac asked.
Aaron pinched his eyes shut. “I’ll explain everything when you get here.” If anyone could help him, Isaac could. His memories of the last steward still resonated with the warriors. As such, he was their best resource on how to deal with a Macken woman.
Aaron paced, waiting for his friend to arrive. The thought of throwing a few punches at one of the punching bags was enticing, but he’d rather hit something worth the effort. Alas, there were no Harbingers around.
He glanced at himself in the mirrors. “You’re a fool.”
When the door buzzer rang, Aaron sprinted across the wood floor and unlocked the doors.
Isaac surveyed him then pronounced, “You look like a crazy person.”
Aaron flipped the locks behind him. “I feel like it.”
Isaac frowned, slipping out of his coat. “What for?”
“I blew it. She’ll never accept what I have to tell her. You shouldn’t have sent me, Isaac.”
“Do you truly believe that?” The redheaded man stood a little less than a foot taller than Aaron, but no menace exuded from him as he stared down at him.
Still, the way Isaac peered at him before turning back to the display of the school’s various competition awards did nothing for Aaron’s concern. He’d let his comrades
down. He just knew it.
“I made a damn fool mistake. You can believe anything you want about me, but we chose wrong.”
“Judging by your story, I can’t think of a better guardian for her.”
Relief washed over him, but the dilemma remained unresolved, and he had no idea what to do. “Even though her trust in me just hit the sewers? You haven’t seen how she’s reacting.”
“Couldn’t be any different than how Ruth reacted.”
Isaac shook his head, red braid flopping as he moved. “She’s seen enough now that I doubt she’s truly still skeptical. She knows everything, doesn’t she? After what you’ve done so far, I imagine Balor’s minions won’t be so hard to swallow.”
“She knows the truth about harshads—or thinks she does. That’s a start, I suppose.” Aaron’s lip twitched. “Maybe it’s better to keep her in the dark.”
Isaac pondered him a moment. “Maybe I should see her reaction. Perhaps you’ve misread her.”
“There’s no time to show you! I can’t introduce you now and believe that will solve anything.”
Isaac turned his puzzled gaze on a painting of a group of ancient swordsmen in battle. “If I set her straight, or if Cyreth does, maybe she’ll believe.”
Aaron grabbed the chair’s arms, throttling them as if they were a physical foe, then pushed himself up and paced to Isaac’s side. “She may recognize the term, and she may have a few books on her shelf about our people, but I really think if either of you go there with that agenda now, she’ll shut down like a frightened turtle.”
“A Macken woman is no frightened turtle.” Isaac frowned. “The woman should be scared. If she continues to balk, it will be disastrous!” He leveled his gaze at Aaron. “The Fomorian hordes can never be allowed to win again. If they do, you know what will happen. The world as she knows it will end.”

Will they win? Will the world end before (their) Imbolc? Well….if you’d like to check the book out, it’s available at: Amazon and Amazon.UK, All Romance Ebooks, Barnes and Noble,Bookstrand, Itunes, and at The Wild Rose Press.

‘Roman’ roads were actually built by the Celts, new book claims – Telegraph

‘Roman’ roads were actually built by the Celts, new book claims – Telegraph.
I just found this online and you know? I almost feel like saying “Well, d’uh.” I mean, it’s not surprising. Really. I’m waiting for the day researchers find out we got a heck of a lot more from the ancient Celts than we know… After all, there were Celts spread all over Greece and Rome at one time. If nothing else, it’d make an interesting (at least to me) alternative history story. ;) Just thought I’d share.
