Donna Keats is a seer. But when she defies fate to save her estranged foster brother she becomes fate’s victim.

As one of only three couriers alive, Forrest “Rest” Castillo can travel anywhere on Earth in seconds. However, the price of his rare talent is to be forever alone. Anyone who gets close to him becomes a potential hostage for the powerful people that seek to own him.

Two years ago, Rest retreated to the isolated beauty of the Arizona desert to save those who have his loyalty and love, but it was the wrong strategy. It’s not his life that should be sacrificed for peace. Nor will it be Donna’s.

Rest’s enemies are about to learn that this former Army Ranger is not as alone as they believed, and that no conspiracy can be buried forever.

The time has come for Rest to walk the Path for justice, and Donna will match him step for step.


Desert Devil is a stand-alone paranormal romance in the Old School series.

Portal Travel

Nobody laugh! I only just realised where my idea for portal travel (which is what Rest, the hero of Desert Devil, has a talent for – opening portals and walking the Path) came from. Wormholes!

Without meaning to, I borrowed from science fiction, but rather than explaining near-instantaneous travel, I’ve left it as magic. Magic is so much cozier!

If only portals, or wormholes, were real. I loathe travel. Living in Australia means it’s a long flight to most places in the world and I hate being stuck in a seat and – because I’m petite (so much nicer than saying “a short ass”) – other passengers tend to encroach on my space. Or it feels that way. I’m big on respecting personal space.

If you could open a portal to one place in the world, where would it be?

My first response to that question was embarrassing. I chose a yummy French bakery. Mmm.

Would you choose family, friends, an isolated beach, a busy city, a mountaintop?

Other New Releases

If you love science fiction and fantasy, especially with a touch of romance, then new release Dominion Rising looks fab! What amazing value. Box sets are a great way to try new authors.

Release Day Celebrations

I tend to keep release day celebrations low key, mostly because I’m already like a hyperactive toddler on a day like this and the last thing anyone needs is for me to get even more excited. You know how that ends… in tears and a tantrum  😉

So I’ll clink virtual coffee/tea/hot chocolate mugs with you instead. Thanks for your “happy release day” vibes. I appreciate them!

One final thing – and please note, this freebie is not available until TOMORROW. (Sorry for the All Caps shouting. I don’t want you or your friends inadvertently one-clicking and paying for Demon Hunter today). I’m adding it to today’s newsletter because I don’t want to bombard you with newsletters!

Demon Hunter, the first book in my paranormal romance series, The Collegium, is free tomorrow (August 11) for Freebie Friday fun. You’ve probably already got a copy, but if you have friends who you think might like it, I’d love for you to let them know about it going free for Friday 🙂

Demon Hunter is exclusive to Amazon. Here’s the link:
