Peace Love mUSIC (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 03, 2011 01:15PM
Description: I wanted to share an excerpt of my new contemporary/erotica/romance, Peace Love Music. As the title suggest, it’s set against the 1969 Woodstock festival when 400,000 people sung songs of peace and love in the rain. Here’s the blurb: Jodi’s birthday breaks her free of the foster care scene and launches her on a journey of self discovery. She thumbs her way to Woodstock to groove on peace, love, and music. The moment Blue spots Jodi strutting toward him barefoot in the rain, he’s overcome with déjà vu. She doesn’t share his feeling that they were lovers in a previous life, thinking it’s half crazy, still she feels she’s meant to be with the irresistible hippie. As an adult now Jodi’s free to be naughty rather than nice and he’s the man who can make her wildest dreams, the sensual ones, come true. Is she headed for a love-in at his tepee?
The Vixen Princess (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: Nesta, a fiery, voluptuous, middle-aged widow, decides instead of settling down what she needs is action. So with her dead husband Gwydion's sword in hand, she fights Saxons with the new war leader a 15-year-old lad named Arthur. King Arthur's champion, Mabon, gave up on a family long ago to dedicate his life to king and country. But to Maben's horror, Gwydion's ghost is called forth from the grave on a quest to bring the sword-wielding widow together with the dark, muscular warrior, and open their locked hearts with the magic of love. Will these two warriors fight falling in love as hard as they battle Saxons? Will love win in the end or has it met its match with two hardened warrior hearts?
The Fox Prince (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: DESCRIPTION: In the year recorded in the Saxon chronicles as 449 AD, sixteen-year-old Prince Tryffin leads a band of warriors home after their first battle with the Saxons. They are filled with blood lust when Saxons (ten-year-old Aelfrida, her mother, and father) cross their path. The band slays her parents and she takes to the woods. When they meet again, seven years later, Tryffin's guilt turns to love for the silvery-haired beauty. Then Aelfrida's foster father attacks the prince. Tryffin spares the man's life for Aelfrida's hand in marriage. When she marries Tryffin to save her foster father's life, her plans to avenge her mother and father must be delayed. As her trust for Tryffin builds, Aelfrida must choose between vengeance or love.

Kelly Hi Cornelia!

I cannot remember, did I request you as a friend? Or is the other way around. It does not matter either way, but I was just curious.

I have to say that A Fine Cauldron of Fish looks very interesting to me, but that might be the Irish flavor of your fiction that hangs about. I have not yet found any books of yours at the library, but I know there might be a few on order. If not they had better get their butts moving!

K.L.

And thanks for being my friend on here! Appreciated.
