About this author

Mary Calmes lives in Lexington, Kentucky, with her husband and two children and loves all the seasons except summer. She graduated from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, with a bachelor's degree in English literature. Due to the fact that it is English lit and not English grammar, do not ask her to point out a clause for you, as it will so not happen. She loves writing, becoming immersed in the process, and falling into the work. She can even tell you what her characters smell like. She loves buying books and going to conventions to meet her fans.




In honor of Coconut Cove’s release, I thought I’d stop by with a list of my favorite things about summer. I don’t care if it is the end of August, I’m holding onto Summer for as long as I can!
5- Flip Flops! Okay, so reality is, I’ll wear flip flops at any time of the year, but there’s nothing more fun that flip-flapping my way around town in my favorites! I have a collection--don’t judge me!-... Read more of this blog post »

Jessie Potts :-( I don't know if I'm completely happy that Domin gets his own or saddened that I won't see Jin and Logan even more!

:-D awesome book! I have adored everything you've written!


message 29: by Lovely

Lovely Domin, yes!

I love all the characters in the series. But I've loved Jin the most ever since the first book. However, after reading the third book, I've fallen in love with Domin. (I still love you the most Jin but I am in love with Domin. XD)

Jin thought "Logan looked like a king" while Domin "looked dangerous, like some sort of pirate king", and I romantically love dangerous-looking men. XD

Domin is many things including wicked and playful. His POV, I'm sure, will be very interesting.

Thank you for creating and writing the Change of Heart series. I'm looking forward to reading the next book. :)


message 28: by Mary

Mary Marie~
Thank you for your wonderful comments and I started it, have to finish and submit and hope that my publisher likes it. I do intend to answer lots of questions and create new ones. Domin is a different character then Jin so his POV should be interesting. :)


message 27: by Lovely

Lovely After reading Honored Vow, I knew there's going to be a fourth book! Woop! Woop! XD

I guessed that 'coz there were some loose ends left out of the third book.

Like (1) the tribe of Mafdet's new life without Domin, Yuri, Mikhail, Crane, and Taj; (2) Jin and Delphine having the baby; (3) New life (in Sobek) of Domin as the new semel-aten, of Yuri as the mate of the semel-aten, of Mikhail as sylvan of the new semel-aten, of Crane as the maahes of the new semel-aten while still being the beset of the reah of the tribe of Mafdet, and of Taj as sheseru of the new semel-aten; (4) Koren's unstable feelings for Domin, Mikhail's possible feelings for Danny, and Crane's and Yusuke's feelings for each other; (5) Koren's standing as Logan's heir, Danny's role as the new sylvan of the tribe of Mafdet, Yusuke's role as the new maahes of the tribe of Mafdet, the acquiring of Avery as the new sheseru of the tribe of Mafdet, and Markel's and Ivan's role as the akers of the tribe of Mafdet; (6) the tribe of Mafdet's regard for the duat Russ and his life with Samantha; (7) the punishing of Archer Pike, and his sheseru and his sylvan; and (8) Ayumi's and Kei's possible understanding or continued lack thereof of Jin being a reah and a nekhene.

Some of these will be dealt with in the fourth book, right? Can't wait! When will it be released?

Love the whole series! XD

Mary Oh the winery, that sounds heavenly. Tell him he'll get island fever. Don't let him do it. Only way off is by boat or plane, just say no. You have the right idea.

JoAnn And here my hubs and I want to move to the Big Island. He sees spending every day at the volcano!! Once was enough for me, I'll stick to the winery instead. Did I mention he's nuts.


message 24: by Mary

Mary Joann, there is only snow on the Big Island but I live on Oahu so no snow for me. It's just stinkin' hot. When Mel was talking about the leaves changing and fall coming on my power month post, I melted into goo. Sooooo want the cold. Working on moving off the rock. :)

JoAnn Your profile says that you live in Hawaii, hope you get to enjoy the snow in the mountains. Anyone that says it doesn't get cold in Hawaii lies. *grins* ^_^

Mary Thank you again for letting me know, you've made my day especially as I fret about the sequel release this coming Monday the 26th. Sequels are the worst because they have to stack up to the original. I have my fingers crossed.

Mary Rossy, hopefully in each book things that I left hanging in the last one will be answered. I am working on literary symmetry. We'll see how I do. I have three more books to write one for Leith, Marcus and Jackson. I like writing the alternating POV between hearth and warder as well.

I finally understand your thinking for this series. Really, can you please write a little faster?LOL There are way too many characters here that i want you to write about.

Thanks for letting me know about the sequel, i was wondering why i couldn't recall the MCs.LOL


message 6: by Mary

Mary Rossy, Tooth & Nail is the sequel to His Hearth. Sorry about the confusion. My plan is to write each one of the warders' stories and the first was Ryan's, told through Julian's POV, and this second one is Malic's story told through his own POV. I wanted it to go hearth, warder, hearth, warder, hearth. We'll see if I can. But Trusted Bond is the sequel to Change of Heart and that will be out in December. Not sure when yet but December it will be. Thanks for the question. Are you going to Yaoi-Con in SF? I'll be there.

Mary Thank you for your kind comments Alfred, I appreciate them so very much. You can always go to Dreamspinner Press and get anything of mine. I hope you like The Guardian too. It's 3rd person so it's different from the others but I love Jude and Eoin as much as my other men. :)


Grantaire Just dropped by to say I just finished Timing ^^ I loved it <3 love Change of hearts too. I'm just looking for The Guardian, and can't find it. Love your books!
