Category: Fiction » Young adult or teen » Romance » Fantasy
Niall, a royal member of the Denkar, aka the dark fae, is visiting South Padre Island when he catches a winged fae painting graffiti on a wall on the island claimed by his people. He is at once fascinated with the lovely girl and intrigued by her audacity, but as one of the Denkar, he must take her to task. Yet she’s armed with a sleeping potion that makes his life intolerable. Between freeing her from his people’s dungeon, her own tower, and fighting a knight in her honor, he wonders if he’s lost his mind over one beautiful winged fae–when she’s betrothed to his cousin!

The Magic of Inherian: The Mage of Monrovia, Book 2
An apprentice of the mage they had destroyed earlier, now threatens Inherian once again. But when Mexia arrives at Langdon to become school trained, she learns the school will not permit a woman to attend. But she must destroy the mage’s apprentice, and she cannot do so without the training. She must use the magic she has learned to discover a way to defeat the apprentice before it is too late.
Mexia has already done much more than most school- trained mages when she and her companions had gone in search of the scepter of salvation. But now one of the apprentices of the evil wizard they had destroyed, has stolen his spell book and plans to take up where he had left off, and she has to try and stop him.
Mexia believes the only way for her to defeat the mage is to become school trained like he was with the eventual goal of becoming a high wizard–the first of her kind in Inherian. But the current headmaster denies her entrance because she’s a woman. Though if she can get the former headmaster’s recommendation, she may attend.
And that’s the beginning of the trouble.
First, there’s the wizard.
Then, the immovable headmaster.
And then, the circle of misfortunes.
It all goes downhill from there…
We have storms coming in, so just want to share these shots before I lose my Internet! We had storms yesterday and that did happen. Oh, oh, oh, I finished, well, almost finished Her Highland Hero. It’s done, or nearly done…still trying to figure out that perfect last *sigh* moment and then it’s done. Then I have to edit it and send it to beta readers. So excited! Next project is the novella for the Kissing the Highlander anthology with four other authors coming out in February.
He bounded into the courtyard and I grabbed my camera to take pictures. Forget that I was nearing the end of writing Her Highland Hero. A bunny was waiting for me to take a glamor shot!
When I went outside, he crouched down in the jasmine, just watching me.
Then he got a little bolder, and I got a little bolder.
He decided it was time to leave, but he paused at the gate and I took another couple of pictures, then went inside to watch him. He stayed there for a while, then took off. I hadn’t seen them in a while, so it was fun seeing him.
Oh, and a bit of wild in the wildlife…
I saw a lizard sitting on top of this post. I often see birds sitting up there and I was thinking he was sitting in a dangerous spot. Wouldn’t a bird be tempted to grab him? Well, I had just grabbed my camera and quickly took a shot right before a bird swooped down from the roof and headed straight for that pillar. The lizard scrambled down the backside of the pillar and the bird dove down anyway. Did the lizard make it? I hope so. 🙂
Then the other day, I had the bugman spraying for bugs. He said that the yellow jackets were really bad. I usually have a terrible problem with them. But I told him I hadn’t been. He looked at me like I was crazy. Said he found a big nest of them on the back building. But I really haven’t had a huge problem with them like I usually do.
He knocked down a small nest that they had been building in the corner by one of the windows where I have my computer. But as soon as he left, they began building there again. And I keep seeing birds, sparrows, I think landing in the gutter, where one grabbed a bug, and they have been landing on the waterspout pipe at the bend in it and I really watched what was going on. I am writing on Her Highland Hero, so I was really trying to concentrate. But I got curious. The bird dove for the yellow jacket’s nest. I can’t actually see the nest from this window, but the bird flew toward it, wings flapping, then he ended back up on the drain spout pipe. And within seconds, he went after the nest again. That time, he got the yellow jacket. Later, I checked, and the yellow jackets haven’t returned.
What’s interesting about this is that I didn’t believe that feeding the birds seeds would help me with my insect problem. But what happened is that they have flocked to my yard as a bird haven, and eat the seeds, AND eat the bugs. Every morning, I have a feast of huge beetles on the driveway that are attracted by the security light at night. Everything from the sparrows to the cardinals will feast on the big beetles.
So if you need a natural insect repellant, the birds are great!
And soon, if I don’t keep getting distracted by the world around me, Her Highland Hero will be done! 🙂
Also running a sale on these titles at ARe Books:
Storms are grumbling, and I’m thrilled. We so needed the rain. And if I didn’t have so many other books to write right now, I’d surely love to work on one of the vampire books in progress. 🙂 Perfect vampire weather.
Have a super great day!
