With the rudimentary structure in place, they now have what it takes to discover what magic can do; both the mundane and the divine.  Lore begins in these days, and mythology will forever echo their names.News: The third book in the beloved Osric’s Wand series, The Well of Strands, will be available early May, 2014

***AUTHOR’S NOTE: As of April 30, 2014, a new version of this ebook has been uploaded. All technical errors with formatting have been corrected. PLEASE if you are experiencing difficulties with your copy, delete and reload to your kindle or ereader. THANK YOU so very much and I hope you enjoy Lance and Sam’s story.

Life has never been easy for Dr. Samantha Malone especially since the day all those years ago that her family was taken in a tragic car accident. Now at almost twenty-nine years old and an aspiring surgeon, she is faced with putting her life back together once again after being kidnapped and left for dead. Had it not been for six feet two inches of walking muscle in ripped jeans and worn cowboy boots with crystal blue eyes and a cheeky grin that made her wonder what he was up to, she might never have seen the light of day. All these months later she knows he protects her from the shadows, never far but never seen. Why? What does he know that she does not?

There are no coincidences.

He protects her always unseen but never far, making sure the ones that dared to hurt her do not come back while he waits for the time when he can claim her as his own. Fear is not something the fierce Dragon Guardsman is used to feeling but it is something he has become accustomed to over the last seven months. Fear that he will not catch the traitor and his cohorts before they hurt those he cares most deeply for. Fear that he will not be able to protect the one the Universe made especially for him. Fear that he is not what Samantha needs but then…

The Universe does not make mistakes.

Lance has spent his long life cracking jokes and making fun of his brethren as each succumbed to the sappiness of everlasting love with the one that completes them like no other. Now the Universe is the one laughing and his fellow Guardsmen are the ones making jokes as the mating call of his kin and his dragon push him headlong towards the one that will bring light to his soul in this life and the next. He can no longer deny that he is meant to spend the rest of his many years with Sam but his obligation to eliminate any threats to her life must come first…right? For the Guardsman who has hot-dogged his way through one hundred and twelve years, one brown-eyed curly-headed doctor will make him rethink everything he ever knew.

Fate will not be denied.

This book contains mature themes and explicit sexual situations It is intended for mature audiences of 18+ years of age.

Your voice is crisp and natural, carrying the reader into lives of the characters and the world you have created seamlessly.’ – Lauren Grey, author of ‘Threads of Time’.’I love your historicals. They feel so real. I can already tell this one is excellent. The back and forth between Emma’s modern life and Jennet’s 18th century life is tantalizing.’ – Laura Emmons, author of ‘Seeing Magic’ and ‘Healing Hands’.’…a wonderful piece of writing.’ – Lin Churchill, author of ‘Pride’.’Overall I can see this attracting readers of both contemporary and historical fiction. It seems that it will gravitate around characters and relationships so perhaps it may have more appeal to women.

You have clearly taken the time to research the area, the herbs and other various concepts within your book, and it shows and makes the story that much stronger throughout. I really enjoyed this book, truly, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to read it. Well done.’- Claire C Riley, author of ‘Limerence”I love the way you handle your characters and the way you blend them into the book from the word go but in such a clever way.

The Starry Child (The Starry Child Series Book 1) by Lynn Hanna

If you enjoy the extraordinary stories of Diana Gabaldon, Karen Marie Moning, and the paranormal works of Nora Roberts…THE STARRY CHILD is a spell-binding, unforgettable story of a star-crossed love that survives through the ages, a tale as timeless as the mystic Scottish legends and forbidden lovers among the heather of long ago. Yet it is as vibrant and alive in the present day as those whose fates now hang in the balance. It’s the story of a young mother who learns that her own destiny is forever tied to a man she hardly knows, a man of the Highlands. Yet in her heart, she realizes that he’s someone she has always known. And at the center of it all lies an undying love held in secret by a little girl.Since the tragic death of her father, eight-year-old Sasha Nielson has not spoken a word. Her mother, Rainey, has taken her to doctors and therapists, but medical science has not found the cause or the cure for Sasha’s silence. There are days when her behavior is baffling, even potentially dangerous, particularly during lightning storms. The authorities threaten to take Sasha away and time is running out. One man sees beyond Sasha’s mysteries. Matt Macinnes is a gifted professor of ancient languages, a man who senses that there is a key to Sasha’s silence, that she may in fact be guarding a secret of such profound and terrifying dimensions that it staggers the imagination. Only Matt can get Sasha to whisper her secrets, secrets she reveals to him in Old Gaelic, a language she has never had access to. Could this All-American little girl truly be carrying around the restless soul of an exiled Celtic queen of old?More than that, Matt finds himself drawn to Rainey’s amazing strength and beauty. He feels ties to her that he can’t explain. But her protective instincts toward little Sasha have built a fortress around her heart, a barrier that only hard-won trust and absolute proof of his worthiness can tear down. He is devoted to both mother and daughter, but the mystery of Sasha’s secret destiny must be solved before he can reveal the passionate truth that burns within him.Rainey has fought to keep Sasha safe from the cruelty and ignorance of the world. She has tried everything to help Sasha overcome her silence, but in the end, Sasha’s wordlessness has prevailed and stress and exhaustion are Rainey’s constant companions. She can’t fix things by herself, but she doesn’t dare trust anyone else for fear others have a dark agenda that could lead to the loss of Sasha. Matt is very tempting. Aside from the fact that he has an almost mystical kind of attraction about him, it would be very easy to simply hand him her heart and her impossible responsibilities and let him take over for a while. Added to that, Sasha adores him at first sight. But is Matt only helping them in order to earn himself professional recognition and a hefty university grant? How can she deny being drawn to him with every breath she takes as if she has known and loved him for a thousand years? How can she dare to trust him when not only her heart is at stake, but Sasha’s heart is in the balance as well?
