Hogmany 2015

Hogmany 2015! 
May your New Year include a Highlander or at LEAST a Highlander book boyfriend.  

Why not make your New Year's Resolution to read more?  And by reading more, I mean starting with a Highlander Hunk like Macrath?  Who doesn't want a Highlander that is Hot and is good at Games?

Check out Highland Hunger by Eliza Knight

An unclaimed land in the Scottish isles is ruled by the male and female victors in a series of war games every five years. Named Chief and Lady of the land, they rule the vast holding, and protect the people by divine right, until the next game begins. 

After her brother's death Ceana is named laird. The only way for her clan to survive the ravages of the Highlands is to join in the war games. Bastard son of a powerful earl, Macrath is placed in the games by his vengeful stepmother. He must survive for the ultimate retribution. 

Ceana can't afford to like the formidable, captivating, Highlander who seems to be following her, and yet she can't seem to walk away. Macrath wants nothing more than to protect the enchanting warrior lass, but doing so may get in the way of his need for revenge. What starts out as a race to survive turns into passion to endure together. 

The Love Story and Struggles continue in the second book! 
Pre order now for January 29, 2015 release!

On This Day in History...

On This Day in History- December 27th

1647-      Imprisoned at Carisbrooke Castle, King Charles I, decides to partner with the Scots. For three years, he agrees to start Presbyterianism in England trading for military commitment in the English Civil War.
(In other words he finally realizes that the Scots are hot and good warriors.)

1825-      In England, between Stockton and Darlington the first public steam locomotive railway is completed.

(In other words, it becomes faster to travel when looking for Hot Highlanders!)

1871-      Crystal Palace, London has the world’s first cat show.

(In other words, Hot Highlanders can bring their pet pussies to show off.)           

2015-     A Day of Fire:  A Novel of Pompeii is on sale- $0.99

Pompeii was a lively resort flourishing in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius at the height of the Roman Empire. When Vesuvius erupted in an explosion of flame and ash, the entire town would be destroyed. Some of its citizens died in the chaos, some escaped the mountain's wrath . . . and these are their stories: 

A boy loses his innocence in Pompeii's flourishing streets. 

An heiress dreads her wedding day, not knowing it will be swallowed by fire. 

An ex-legionary stakes his entire future on a gladiator bout destined never to be finished. 

A crippled senator welcomes death, until a tomboy on horseback comes to his rescue. 

A young mother faces an impossible choice for her unborn child as the ash falls. 

A priestess and a whore seek redemption and resurrection as the town is buried. 

Six authors bring to life overlapping stories of patricians and slaves, warriors and politicians, villains and heroes who cross each others' path during Pompeii's fiery end. But who will escape, and who will be buried for eternity?
