A huge thanks to Lou Harper who has once again created a stunning cover.
A woman, her sword, and the bear-shifter who’ll steal her heart.
Delphi Cosmatos is an alchemist. She investigates the strange and magical objects that find their way to Collegium headquarters in New York. She has magic—and a big Greek family, all ready to “help” her (they mean, interfere). When Jet Walsh moves in next door with no family except the two young orphaned cousins he’s responsible for, it’s a situation of opposites attracting, especially since Jet is a bear-shifter.
But Jet can’t pursue a romantic relationship. He’s tracking the rogue mage who tortured and killed his cousins’ mom. Banned spells are being trafficked across the world, and the center of the trade is New York.
Delphi knew her city was dangerous, but now her heart is in danger, too. Jet doesn’t have magic, yet he’s tangling with a powerful, ruthless mage. If she wants to save her man, she’ll need all the help she can get. No! Not from her family. Stashed in the evidence bunker at Collegium headquarters is the legendary sword Excalibur, and Delphi is just the woman to wield it.
Alchemy Shift is out October 27. It is the final (for now) book in the Collegium series, which is available free in Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
To celebrate the gorgeous covers for the Collegium series, I put them in a video. It’s a simple one (because my video-creation skills are almost non-existent).
New Series – Old School
Old School is my new series of seven paranormal romance thrillers out in 2017. Each book will be complete in itself, telling the story of a different hero and heroine each time. However, old friends are likely to reappear and there’s an over-arching plot to the series, so reading them in order will be best.
The first book is Phoenix Blood and I’m debating releasing it December 27, 2016 – just sneaking it into 2016. Sadie and Marcus are an incredible couple. He betrayed her and they parted, but in a world of sorcery and secrets, not all is as it seems. Now, he’s her only hope of surviving the wizard mercenaries on her trail and who’d consider her death collateral damage. You see, Sadie has something they’re contracted to deliver.
The broad beans are flowering and the bees are ecstatic. Buzzzy little things :) I like growing things like beans because they help fix nitrogen in the soil, but I admit broad beans aren’t my favourite vegetable. I remove them from their pods, then from each bean’s individual outer coating, and only then, eat the sweet green inner bean. Peas are yummier, but I’ve found broad beans to be less inclined to get yucky things like powdery mildew. I’m a lazy gardener.
Speaking of being an imperfect gardener, the parsley is trying to take over the world while I’m distracted.
I read Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews the day it hit my kindle, and it was every bit as wonderful as I’d anticipated.
Carthage Must Be Destroyed by Richard Miles is depressing me just by its topic. Reading it, knowing that the civilisation was wiped out by the Romans, is hard going – so basically, I keep stopping. When I’m as busy as I am currently, I like lighter-hearted books.
I’ve been enjoying the snarky attitude of Avery Shaw, heroine of Amanda M Lee’s reporter mysteries in three box sets. All the books are in Kindle Unlimited which makes me wistful and mad. I wish Amazon would bring Kindle Unlimited to Australia. It would save me money! (I would borrow so many books!!!)
