Please welcome Natalie Star author of The Keeper

I recently had the privilege to visit with Natalie Star (isn’t she beautiful?)

Image

I had such a wonderful time with her.  You’ll love her instantly I know I did.  She’s charming and fun which is a great combination.  Enjoy!

At what age were you the happiest? What triggered such joy?

Hmmm, early twenties after I got married and hubby and I moved to Italy. We had some awesome times over there! And so much travel!

But then it wouldn’t be fair to say that I’m not as happy now as I was then. My family makes me so happy. We have great times together and we’ve instilled the travel bug into our children.

What is the number one lie you tell yourself? How is that working out?

That I’m going to lose weight! Ha! That’s not working out so great. I mean I did lose ten pounds and kept it off for a few months now. A friend is taking a stand in her heath and is learning to eat/cook healthier so I’m going to take her lead and learn as she does.

What is the one thing, good or bad, you wish you could have said to a former boyfriend/girlfriend? Why didn’t you? Don’t worry he/she probably won’t read this.
I really cannot answer this one! I have been with my husband since I was fifteen! We’ve been married a couple of decades now.

What is the worst advice you have ever given someone?

Not to worry about something, when they clearly should have.

What is one of the most unusual things you have done in your life? 

Hiked to the crater of an active volcano in Sicily.

Who is your favorite author, and how did they inspire you to write?

I have many, but the first ones I fell in love with are: Richelle Mead, Rachel Caine, and Cassandra Clare. These women rock and know how to tell a story.

Special guest Michale Hess – author

Please welcome my guest Michale Hess

 

Where are you from?

I am from a small community, Columbus, Kansas, I have considered Treece, Kansas as my hometown, but now I can’t go there. Too many sink holes from the silver mines. Now I live in Ozark, Alabama, my hubby retired from the Army and we settled here. I live on a quiet street, but do have a four-lane highway behind the house.

 

A little about yourself:

I am the only daughter with a boy’s name, Michale. I do have three younger brothers, I use to call them, Mary, Lulu and Beth because I thought it will be fair if they have a girl’s name, they really do not have girls name.

 I am the oldest, so I have more chores than the boys but during summer time, they have to mowed the yard (five acres). So that was fair.
My hobbies are cross stitching, writing (of course), playing online games, meeting new people.
I went to college for two years, but my health issues cause me to drop out. My major was Accounting. I did really good in college, my grade average was 3.55, I was impressed with my accomplishments in college.

I am married to a wonderful man (31 years) and we have two children and five grandchildren.

We have our ups and downs, we make through the rough times and learn more about ourselves. We use to have a cute saying:
Not kid a kid till the kid can kid you. I know stupid but it was funny at the time.

 

Tell us your latest news?

I am working on a screen script. It is something I hope to finish and filmed. It is a little a bit about me.

 

When and why did you begin writing?  

I was in fifth grade, my teacher Mrs. Townsend thought I had an unusual flair of telling stories, she had encouraged me to write them down. My mom kept the stories, till the house fire, which destroys everything that was in the house.
It was three years ago, that I really started to write again, after I found out I had colon cancer. I knew then I have to write, it was my grandfather, Walter Trimble wishes that I write. He told me that I have stories inside me that needs to get out. I feel he is sending me the stories for they come to me in my dreams. My first novel: The Powers Twins in the Four Element Race is the first novel I have completed. Now, I am rewriting it. This is going to be either a seven or eight book series. The last book will be called Live or Die.

 When had you first considered yourself a writer?

After the first paragraph of the Powers Twins novel through the last paragraph. When I finish the last paragraph:

 

Mary clapped her hands above her head. A red gold glow surrounded her; she metamorphosed into the phoenix. Mary looked around and glanced over to Arabella who also had transformed into a phoenix. Mary spread her wings and flew out the window. Mary flew around the castle, stretching her wings. She landed on the roof and looked around the area. Villagers are getting ready for bed. Lights were going off seems like one at a time. Mary flew towards the ocean; two owls flew along with her. She flew around the village and the castle. The sun was peeking at the horizon. Mary and the owls decided to go back to the castle and watched the sunrise.

Before she changed back, she wished her parents were there with her and Chadwick. This year had been eventful for Mary. Mary flew one more time around the school before she changed back.

She sings the Phoenix song of happiness. Arabella heard the song, she knew. Mary was free, finally free!

This was when I considered myself a writer. I got chills when I wrote the last sentence.

What inspired you to write your first book?

 My dream. Let me explain. I keep having these dreams about these twins, their parents vanished on the night they were born, and a seven hundred year old snake is after them.  They grew up separated by their uncles (father’s brothers) and their aunts (their mother’s sisters). The twin’s names are: Mary Arabella Molly Jane and Chadwick Allen James Sedgrick Powers. Mary is more powerful than Chadwick but Chadwick is quick doing potions. But together, they have powers that neither of them expected. Along the way, they met at school for the first time.  Mary’s friends are Rose Thunderleaf and Becky Podder  and Chadwick friends are Henry Clearwind and Bradley Winters.

 Do you have a specific writing style?  

 I don’t know if I have a certain writing style. I just write.

 How did you come up with the title? 

 The title and characters come to me.

 Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

 Love can overcome anything. Having fun in life is worth living.

 How much of the book is realistic?

 It is a fantasy story, there is not realistic in it. But love of each other is in there. How teamwork can get things done.

 Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life, or are they a figment of your imagination? (i.e. – is your hero/heroin you? – is your ‘bad guy’ you or someone you know?)

This is purely imagination. The bad guy is all the bullies in my life. Mary and Chadwick are strong and I wanted to be that strong.

 What books have influenced your life the most?

 I love to read Young Adults. When I was younger, we didn’t have the books that are out there now, like Harry Potter, Twilight saga, Hunger Games sagas, to mention some.

 If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

 J.K. Rowlings.

 What book(s) are you reading now?

 Right now, I am reading a book called Lexi’s Run by Ellison James.

 Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?  

 Not right now.

 What are your current projects?

 The Power Twins series,  Fred and Bud series (children’s book) I working on Going Against Time. ( My screen script)

 Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members.

 I go to a writers’ meeting in Dothan, Alabama. They are good at tearing your story and help you bring it back as a better story. I love it! I love them for doing it. They told me that I must have a tough skin because Going Against Time, they tore it, matter of fact, they ripped it apart. I learn and applied what I have learned in my story.  It made the story stronger instead of weaker. It is now fast paced and I can now lure you into it. I am writing it as a book form then I am going to write it as a script.

 If you could pick any celebrity to star in the movie version of your book, who would it be?

 I would like Emma Watson to play Arabella Jane Williams Powers. Arabella is the founder of Cambridge School of the Gifted Wizards and Witches. There is a big picture of Arabella, and she talks to Mary.

 If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?

 I am currently working on Fred and Bud meets Mr. Snappy Snappers the Snapping Turtle. And the Powers Twins in the Four Element Race, I am rewriting some of the chapters, some saying it is to much like Harry Potter.

 Can you share a little of your current work with us?

 

Chita popped into Mary’s room, she walked over to her daughter, who was asleep. Chita glanced at Mary. She placed her hand on Mary’s cheek.

“My sweet daughter, Mary, I might not get to see you grow up to be a fine young lady. I want to give you something. I want to give you some of my powers. Mary, you must be strong and brave. My sweet Mary. Momma loves you and so does your daddy.” Chita whispered,  as a tear slid down her cheek and on to Mary. Chita smiled at her daughter. She gently lifted up Mary’s small hands and kissed each one.  Chita vanished out of the room.

A soft yellow glow filled the room. Radiance glow surrounded Mary’s body, as a star pattern materialized in her right hand and a sun image appeared in her left hand. Mary slept through it, she didn’t stir. Then the glow disappeared.

“My precious son, Chadwick, I might not get to see you grow up to be a fine young man. I want to give you something. I want to give you some of my powers. Chadwick, you must be strong and brave. My sweet Chadwick. Momma loves you and so does your daddy.” Chita whispered,  as a tear slid down her cheek and onto Chadwick. Chita smiled at her son. She gently lifted up Chadwick’s small hands and kissed each one.  Chita vanished out of the room.

A soft yellow glow filled the room. Radiance glow surrounded Chadwick’s body, as a star pattern materialized in his right hand. Chadwick slept through it, he didn’t stir. Then the glow disappeared.

This is in the first chapter that has two different parts.

 

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

 Finding a quiet time to write.

 What is your particular writing quirk?  

 People using there for their. Or our for are. It makes me so upset. A lot of writers are doing it, I don’t know if they notice it or not. I tried not to misuse the words.

Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)?

 No, since they are fictional, I use the memories of my home town.

 I did go down the Dragon’s Tail trail. It was awesome and I am going to use that in one of my Powers Twins stories. Chadwick would turn against his sister in the Dragon’s Tail. He will be under the influence of Robert Lee Craft aka Pybus, the seven hundred old, that can turn himself into a snake.

Who designed the cover(s)?

JL Stratton, a very good friend and a fellow writer. He charges me nothing for my novel: Heart to Heart. I am editing right now. I can’t wait to get that out into the readers’ hands.

What was the hardest part of writing your book?

Keep on track. Not letting the character take charge. Believe me, they tried. I have more story ideas coming to me. Another story series came to me: Rossa Rainbowleaf (like, I said, they come to me and introduced themselves and tells me their stories. In my dreams) .

Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?

That I have the most patience when I write. And I am finding myself when I write.

Do you have any advice for other writers?

Keep writing. Don’t let the fear of writing keeps you from writing. I heard that from somewhere. I don’t know who said.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

I hope you enjoy reading the stories as much as I enjoy writing them. I hope I sweep you into a world that my characters live in.

Special Guest Caitlin Hensley

Paranormal Legacy

Today’s featured guest writer is Caitlin Hensley.  She is such a cutie! Thank you for being here today.

Our readers want to know more about you and what you do.

Where are you from?

 I’m from Criner, which is a rural Oklahoma community that’s so small it can’t really be considered a town. Except for a church and a few houses, there’s nothing but rolling hills

 Tell our readers about yourself.

I’m eighteen years old, and live with various family members and quite a few cats and dogs. I was homeschooled, so that gave me plenty of time for writing.

When and why did you begin writing?

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, but I think I really became serious about it in late 2011 when I attended a class on writing, and actually had a few people outside my family read some of my work. The feedback I got was fantastic, and started me down the path I’m on today.

 What inspired you to write your first book?

One day several years ago, I overhead my sister on the phone to a friend, and what she said sparked an idea. I hurried to my room and started writing frantically in a notebook, and so was born the very first draft of Paranormal Legacy.

 Do you have a specific writing style?

 I like to write in first person, present tense. I used to write in past tense, but after reading several YA books in present tense, I decided that I really liked that style, and started using it for my own work.

 How did you come up with the title? 

 Paranormal Legacy was originally called “The Supernatural,” which is a very bland title. I came up with “paranormal” and started playing around with different ideas, and eventually came up with “legacy,” and those two words combined to perfectly match the theme of the book.

 Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life, or are they a figment of your imagination? (i.e. – is your hero/heroin you? – is your ‘bad guy’ you or someone you know?)

None of the events in Paranormal Legacy are based off anything that’s happened to me, since I’ve never met any British vampires or sarcastic hawk shifters. I tried to make my main character, Haily Long, as different from me as possible. For example, she’s addicted to coffee, but I can’t stand the stuff. Though, and this is kind of funny in a weird way, the main antagonist in PL is named Chris, and long after writing the book, I had some troubles with a guy named Chris. So that’s kind of strange.

 What book(s) are you reading now?

 I’ve been rereading all of Meg Cabot’s books; I really love her writing style. Also, I’ve just started The Indigo Spell, which is by Richelle Mead.

 Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?

 To name a couple off the top of my head, Susan Kaye Quinn and Trish Marie Dawson.

 What are your current projects?

 I’m working on five separate books right now, and four of them are YA, while the last one is more adult. All of them are paranormal or fantasy, though the subject matter of each of them is very different.

 If you could pick any celebrity to star in the movie version of your book, who would it be?

 The first actor that popped into my head was Zac Efron. He has those gorgeous blue eyes, which means that he might work to play Jake West, the sarcastic hawk shifter I mentioned above.

 Can you share a little of your current work with us? (a short excerpt would be great)

 The books I’m writing at the moment are first drafts, so they definitely aren’t ready to be seen by anyone. 🙂 I’ll share a little from Paranormal Legacy.

 There’s a noise behind me, a floorboard groaning under a cautious foot. I start to turn, but a sweaty hand clamps over my mouth, forcing my lips shut.

My attacker shoves me down onto the bed, and I bounce twice on the mattress, smacking my head against the headboard.

I squint up at the figure looming over me, standing beside my bed. It takes a moment for the blur that’s his face to snap into focus, then I recognize him. It’s the guy from the coffee shop.

“What the . . . what are you doing in my room?”

His lips twist into a smirk. “Remember me?”

 

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

 I usually have trouble writing endings, since I don’t want them to be too dark, or too cheesy. And when I start the first book in a new series, it usually takes me a while to become acquainted with the characters.

 Do you have to travel much concerning your book?

 Only in my imagination. 🙂

 Who designed the cover?

 I came up with the design for Paranormal Legacy’s cover, and then Marcy Rachel from Marcy Rachel Designs helped me finalize it. I didn’t have Photoshop back when I was working on this cover, so I was having a rough time getting things to look right.

 What was the hardest part of writing your book?

 I wouldn’t say the writing was hard, but the editing was. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve edited PL, but I know it’s up there in the double digits.

 Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?

 I’ve learned a lot from the process of writing PL. I discovered so much about the structure of writing, such as how to avoid telling in favor of showing. I’ve also learned so much about the editing process, and the publishing process. So really, the book has been a journey of learning for me in every way you can imagine.

 Do you have any advice for other writers?

 Trust your dreams. If you want to write, write. And if you want to publish your books, do so. Don’t let other people crush your dreams and talk you out of them; if you have a goal, don’t give up.

 Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

 I just want to thank everyone who’s supported me so far, and I hope all of you enjoy reading Paranormal Legacy as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Please welcome guest author Rachel Rossano

Profile2ADutyCover500

Thank you so much for joining me today Rachel.  I’m sure our audience wants to learn more things about you so I’ll just jump into the interview.

 Where are you from?

 Born in Michigan and transplanted multiple places progressively east, I am now residing in New England.

 A little about yourself (ie: your education, family life, hobby, etc.)

 Happily married with three children between the ages of two and five, my life is very full. Writing, book cover design, and book trailer creation are my hobbies, but I love to read as well. I am a stay-at-home mom and household manager in addition to my “hobbies,” which I am trying to turn into a business or two before the kids move out of the house. I have some time yet.

 Tell us your latest news?

 I just released my first full-length novel, Duty: a novel of Rhynan. Another one is slated to release later this year. After publishing two novellas and two short stories, I figured I should try my hand at publishing the bigger stuff.

 When and why did you begin writing?

 Writing didn’t come naturally. I wrote for school projects, but it wasn’t until my teenage years that I put words to paper outside of what was absolutely necessary. Sometime during my high school years, I caught the bug and I have been writing ever since.

 When did you first consider yourself a writer?

 When I first began going from project to project and constantly writing, I started thinking of myself as a writer.

 What inspired you to write your first book?

 Published or unpublished? My first unpublished book was more of a novella that I wrote for school. A non-magical fantasy with a fairy tale feel, it involved a prince, a noblewoman, and a vaguely described adventure.

 My first published book came about because I was battling writer’s block in a foreign country with nothing to read in my native language. I sat down to write a story I wanted to read and wrote The Crown of Anavrea.

 Do you have a specific writing style?

 My style is constantly changing. Of late, I am tending toward dialogue heavy prose, light on the description, and focused on interpersonal relationships, mainly romance, of a select cast against the backdrop of national or (in my current WIP) interplanetary strife. How is that for a description? My work tends to be written in first or third person past tense.

 How did you come up with the title? 

 Duty describes the reoccurring theme of the book. Brielle, the main character, and Tomas, her husband, are both responsible people who try to do what is right whether or not they like it. Throwing them into a situation that tests them each individually and their newly formed marriage of circumstance causes them to debate which is the best course. Should a husband value his obligation to his king higher than his vows to his wife? Does a wife honor her husband even when she doesn’t trust him? How does she do what she thinks is right when her decisions are not hers to make? When does she say, “Enough, I have to do this even if it means angering my new husband”?

 Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

 Not really. I just wanted to explore a few of the aspects of duty within the setting of nobles, kings, commoners, and marriage. I enjoyed testing my characters’ worth through their trials. Readers are welcome to interpret the individual messages for themselves.

 How much of the book is realistic?

 Despite the genre, non-magical fantasy, I strive for a high level of realism in my fiction. I want the reader to believe that the events could have happened.

 Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life, or are they a figment of your imagination? (i.e. – is your hero/heroine you? – is your ‘bad guy’ you or someone you know?)

 Very few of the situations in my books come up in my daily life. However, there are pieces of people I know in some of the characters. When my husband read Duty, he spotted a section where a character sounded just like him for a bit. My son’s habit of rubbing kisses in appears. Anise, the hero’s mother, is loosely based on a woman I know, but the similarities are very vague.

 What books have influenced your life the most?

 I am an avid author follower. Once I find one I like, I try to read everything I can by them. Diana Wynne Jones, Lloyd Alexander, Orson Scott Card, Donna Hatch, Sarah M. Eden, Patricia C. Wrede, Robin McKinley, and a couple others top my lists.

 Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?

 A young friend of mine just released her first novella, Annabeth’s War, which I enjoyed. Aubrey Hansen’s skill is impressive. I am reading her Peter’s Angel right now.

 What are your current projects?

 I have a short story in the works, Isbet’s Disgrace, which I hope will eventually be published as a serial in a magazine.

 My next main project is a science fiction epic titled Diaspora. It is a love story between a genetically altered human and an Earth woman of pure lineage able to trace her bloodline to the kings of Europe. One touch calls into question everything they both know about their shared history and generations of war, slavery, and bigotry. More importantly, that touch sparks a conflict that could unravel the future of all humans, modified or not.

 Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members.

 I have found support in various places, friends, fellow writers, readers, and others.

 If you could pick a celebrity to play one character in the movie version, who would it be?If you could pick a celebrity to play one character in the movie version, who would it be? If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?

 Not yet. Give me a few more months and I will probably have something I would like to change.

 Can you share a little of your current work with us? (a short excerpt would be great)

 “The red one is mine,” he said.

I didn’t raise my head although instinct urged me to. Father had called me Red. He said I was born screaming, skin deep red like the beets in the garden and hair fiery like the setting sun. The man who spoke was not my father.

I glanced at him from beneath my cloak’s hood. Arrogant in his size and superior mass, his eyes picked me out of the writhing mass of captives. Early morning sunlight glinted off plain armor and an unadorned helm, yet the unwashed barbarians treated him with the respect due a commander.

The crowd of women around me parted for the soldier fulfilling his order. Mothers moved back with babes in their arms, toddlers clinging to their skirts. Their fingers clutched older children’s hands or shoulders. A living mass, their voices silenced by the army surrounding them. Their faces spoke eloquently of their fear.

The soldier, smelling of sweat and sour wine, grabbed my left arm and dragged me out from among them. I didn’t want to bring harm to the women around me. The soldier would injure many before subduing me. I allowed him to pull me toward the commander with only minimal resistance.

Once free of the captives, however, I yanked from the man’s grip in an attempt to run. Three pairs of rough hands caught hold of my arms before I managed more than a few steps. The stench of their unclean bodies turned my stomach. I gagged as I fought them. They dragged me through the dust and dumped me at his feet.

I struggled up only to be brought down again. Pressure behind my knees forced me to kneel.

I lifted my face to glare at the commander.

“Remove her hood.”

Someone pulled my cloak half off my shoulders in his enthusiasm. Red curls fell free in a wild mass about my shoulders.

Silently I cursed the color. If only I had been blessed with plain brown or even blond tresses, I could have hidden in plain sight.

“My Lady Brielle Solarius, I presume.”

He had the audacity to meet my glare. His eyes were only glimmers beneath the beaten metal and leather of his helmet. He made no bow or any show of the honor due me. I was a noblewoman. I didn’t claim the right of deference often, but still the fact remained.

“Might I know your name, barbarian?”

 Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

 Finding the time to sit down, uninterrupted, and write remains a constant battle.

 Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)?

 Nope. I have to use my imagination to transport me.

 Who designed the cover(s)?

 I created the cover for this one.  The picture seemed a perfect fit for Brielle, the narrator and heroine of Duty. It worked hard to give her a feel of an oil painting without losing clarity.

 What was the hardest part of writing your book?

 Finding the time to write when inspiration struck was my greatest challenge. The words came quickly. The writing became fast and furious, I wrote over seventy-eight thousand words in eight months on a part-time writing schedule.

 Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?

 Stories have a way of telling themselves. I planned on a short story. I ended up with a novel.

 Do you have any advice for other writers?

 Write. Write what you love. Read. Learn from what you read. Write some more. Edit. Repeat. Mix it up and keep at it.

 Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

 I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Regency

I thought some of you would like to see some great regency era photo’s.  Such an elegant time period. Enjoy!!

In this era, they had a party for everything. Some times girls would spend hours, I do mean hours, getting ready just to be seen.  That’s it, seen.  They went from house to house being seen.  We just use Facebook today, lol.

How would you like to be picked up in one of these? Fun, as long as you don’t have a long way to go.

Such an elegant time.  Beautiful gardens, dashing men and beautifully adorned women.

Girls day out!

Simple, yet stunning!

I have to include the cover from my first book, Treasured Love.  It’s beautiful, isn’t it?

And here’s the cover for my second book, Lord Tristan’s True Love.  Sweet!!

I hope you have enjoyed these.  You can see so much more on Pinterest at http://pinterest.com/whatsheknew/regency-era/

You can also find my novels on Amazon.

Lord Tristan’s True Love (Kindle only) http://tinyurl.com/bphj6no

Synopsis:  Did you know that the society of Regency England forced members of the ton to marry should they been seen in public together? The unescorted young lady’s reputation would be quite ruined otherwise.

This book is one such story and tells of Miss Caroline Denise Whittingham’s misadventures in trying to get her betrothed to ‘cry off’. Unfortunately, one of her scheme’s has her thrown out of the realm of society and her betrothed, Lord Tristan Darlington, refuses to end the engagement until she finds her way back into their good graces. Of a certainty the odds of regaining favor with the peerage are slim, in 1820 London, but Lord Darlington is a great friend of the Countess Lieven and enlists her aid.
Caroline finds him to be a pompous, stuffy lord who is puffed up with himself and his reputation; not caring a whit for her. In her efforts to expel Lord Darlington, she is deliberately rude to him in public and pretends that she is afraid he will hurt her. These escapades force him to show his nastier side to the peerage that he so desperately wants to impress.

The sparring between Miss Whittingham and Lord Darlington cause many a raised eyebrow in society, which makes the book amusing and charming to read. It is my sincere desire that you will find this book energetic as well as entertaining for it has been a pleasure to write.

Treasured Love (Kindle and Paperback) http://tinyurl.com/d7bxe88

Synopsis:  Phillip Brandenburg was handed an ultimatum in his grandfather’s will—marry or forfeit the fortune, estates and title. With the season ended, he had little choice but to go to his country home to find a local woman of birth to marry.
What he found instead was a passionate armful with a parcel of danger following her…those who kidnapped her had claimed she was a princess, but Victoria was not as certain. To make matters worse she had fallen in love with her rescuer and protector. Could she dare to love him when she did not even know her own true identity?

I hope you’ve enjoyed the pictures, and don’t forget to check out my Pineterest Board for many more Regency pictures.  Thanks for visiting with me today,

Hello world!

Treasured Love is OUT and Lord Tristan’s True Love will be out this November!  Woot!  This makes three published books for me with a fourth one coming in December of 2012 (if all goes well!)  I am so incredibly blessed!  So, for this first blog for all things historical, regency romance; I thought I would give you a short synopsis of Treasured Love.

A small package carries big trouble.

Phillip Brandenburg was handed an ultimatum in his grandfather’s will marry or forfeit the fortune, estates and title. With the season ended, he had little choice but to go to his country home to find a local woman of birth to marry. What he found instead was a passionate armful with a parcel of danger following her…those who kidnapped her had claimed she was a princess, but Victoria was not as certain. To make matters worse she had fallen in love with her rescuer and protector. Could she dare to love him when she did not even know her own true identity?

As time goes by, I will be posting more tidbits from my books and regenecy trivia.  You can connect with me on any of the following:
