It’s release day for Haunting Savannah! Eight spooky tales by eight terrific authors! My book is A Pirate’s Mask, which is based on the Pirate’s House Inn–and it’s haunted! This box set is on sale for .99 for a limited time, so grab it while you can!



 


Ghost in a Bottle by Lia Davis & Kerry Adrienne


Anatoli La Croix has spent the last century cursed to exist in spirit form, locked inside a glass jar. When the beautiful and magickal Ophelia purchases the jar, he discovers he’s able to escape his confinement for short periods. For the first time in a century, he has hope. Could the beautiful witch be the one to break his curse? Or will she provoke the evil spirit that imprisoned him and bring dark magick’s wrath down on them both?


Forbidden Union by Deena Remiel


It’s Halloween in Savannah. Noah Blackman has come to Savannah, Georgia and Violet Adams’ home seeking to verify the origins of his family. Could his roots begin with a runaway slave? This trip holds many surprises for the two as their family’s pasts collide and their present charts a course for romance and lasting love.


True Companions by Ella Jade


Maxim and Grant have been lovers for a century. Companions in the truest sense. What happens when a human woman shares their home and their bed? Can two destined souls open their hearts to a third?


The Ultimate Act of Love by Evelyn Lederman


The last thing Kori Daniels expected to see on a ghost tour is an actual apparition. Although she can feel earth-bound spirits, she has never seen one. Already impacted by nightly amorous dreams since arriving in Savannah, her dream lover now has a face.


The Haunting of Bellehaven by H.R. Boldwood


Self-reliant Harper McKinnon arrives in Savannah to claim her inheritance, Bellehaven Plantation—a proud antebellum estate. But the estate’s handsome caretaker, Clay Montgomery, is used to doing things his way. Fireworks fly as they are drawn ever closer, but the plantation’s ghostly secrets threaten both their love and their lives.


The Promise by Kim Carmichael


A mistake brought a demon to her, a promise kept them bound together. It is a thin line between desire and love and good and evil when an incubus enters Leora Desmond’s life.


Veil Break by Savannah Verte


Taken from the world he knows, to a place out of time, Holden Henry has a lot of questions when he is redeposited into his world, 150 years in the future. His Savannah isn’t the same anymore.


A Pirate’s Mask by ML Guida


Dark secrets haunt the Pirate’s House Inn in Savannah, Georgia.


Rosalind Gill’s stepfather is the culprit. He’s forcing her to remain silent and marry his evil partner or die. Her only hope is Phearson MacFie-a vampire pirate from another time. They must work together to not only save the innocent, but save themselves and discover true love.

I am so excited to announce that my new release–Touch of Madness–is out. This is the second story in the Magic, New Mexico Series. Touch of Madness will be the teaser to my new SyFy romance that comes out in January 2018. Can you guess who the next heroine will be?



Literally – cursed by a vengeful witch, Gwen Black is divided in two – two identical halves, one good the other evil. Her evil self is committing crimes and the attractive but arrogant sheriff arrests her innocent half. He even shows her video tapes depicting a woman that looks exactly like her burglarizing stores – but she knows she didn’t do it! Convinced there’s an impostor, Gwen must prove her innocence before her handsome captor locks her away forever.


Theo has problems of his own, struggling to control his shape-shifting abilities. Every time someone he cares about is in trouble, he shape-shifts into an uncontrollable fire breathing dragon. The last thing he wants to deal with is a beautiful thief who insists she’s innocent, even when he’s got the proof, but he can’t help being drawn to her. Her presence calms the raging dragon inside him.


When Theo locks Gwen in his jail and another crime is committed by a woman who looks exactly like her, Theo is perplexed, but determined to discover the truth. He uncovers the little thief is his soul mate under a spell and the only way to break it is by a true love kiss. Can Theo control his dragon long enough to woo Gwen and convince her that he is her knight in shining armor, or will he lose her forever with the next new moon?

I am so excited to be going to Penned Con this year. This is actually a fundraiser for children with autism. Since I work with students with autism in my day job, this fundraiser is dear to my heart.


Penned Con is located at the St. Louis City Center Hotel and Suites. I have included a video that tells more about the event. This brings authors and readers together to have fun and support a worthy cause. I hope you can join us!

I am so excited that I won first place on my work in progress–Crossed–in the Romance Through The Ages Contest.



 


 


I changed my title from The Arrow and The Pistol to Crossed. My new series will be a Robin Hood time travel book, which is called The Magic of Sherwood. There will be at least four books in the series, and I’m thinking of doing a spinoff into the Three Musketeers, but I am not sure yet.


This first book is Robin Hood’s story, which is where Robin meets Bones and The Mummy. Marian is a tough police detective, hunting the criminal who murdered her brother. The criminal is into the Egyptian occult, and he uses a spell that transport both he and Marian back to the twelfth century England. He is determined to find two magical Egyptian artifacts that were lost, but were found during the crusades and brought back to England. With them, he would become powerful enough to destroy his enemies.


Marian meets Robin Hood who has troubles of his own. He is trying to convince his younger brother not to align with Prince John against Richard and then he finds himself on the opposite side of the law with him. But when Marian’s criminal becomes the new Sheriff of Nottingham, his troubles double. Marian and Robin must work together to defeat him and develop a love strong enough between them that will overcome evil.


It’s still a work in progress, but I hope to have it out soon.

I am so excited to announce that the sixth book in the Legends of the Soaring Phoenix is available for preorder. It will be on sale for .99, and it will go up on price on May 13th. This is the last story of the three undine sisters.


 


Only an ice princess can melt the darkness growing in his fiery heart


Destined to be queen of the undines, Penelope must master her winter powers and remain pure. But time is running out. A time spider is hunting her. To save her people, she must flee. If caught, the beast will bite her and drag her back to a demon’s island. Then, the demon will feast on her blood, allowing him to the escape the island and kill all those she loves.

Her only hope is trust Ewan Kelley, the grim gun master of the Soaring Phoenix.


Ewan wants no part of this and is still mourning the loss of his beloved woman and guarding his blind daughter from the demon. But an archangel reveals that the demon knows where she is and plans to kidnap her. To keep her safe, he must save a woman he barely knows. In return, the archangel promises to give sight to his little girl.


Their attraction for each other proves to be too strong, and soon they learn that their forbidden love will not be denied. Only by working together can they defeat the forces of evil.

ML Guida - Touch of Curiosity


To prove his innocence, a cursed pirate must help a curious witch fix a fatal mistake.


I am so excited to be participating in another kindle world. This time it’s with S.E. Smith’s Magic New Mexico. I am also honored to be with so many talented authors. Check out their books: Donna McDonald, Sylvia McDaniel, Evelyn Lederman, and Tianna Xander.


My book is a time travel book mixed with science fiction. One of my pirate’s is caught by a time spider and tossed into the future.


Pandora  Athans’ insatiable curiosity for artifacts changes her life forever when she discovers a bloodied pirate from the 17th century and a shiny silver box outside of town. She soon regrets her curiosity when she accidentally releases a mysterious cloud and residents of Magic, New Mexico are found dead — completely drained of blood.


Cé Jackman is flung into the future by a time spider during a fiery battle. Waking in a strange magical place, Cé finds himself accused of killing the local residents. There is only one person who believes his claims of innocence – the pretty little witch who found him.


Cé also finds himself in another unusual position – for the first time a lady needs his help. He also understands that if he is ever to return home, he will need Pandora’s assistance. Together, Cé and Pandora must work together to destroy the mysterious, killing fog she has released and convince his accusers that he is innocent before more lives are lost. Can an ancient Vampire pirate and a modern witch save the town of Magic, New Mexico or will Pandora’s touch of curiosity be the death of all of them?


Watch for A Pirate’s Darkness which will be out soon!
