Check Out The New Medieval Mistletoe Release!!!

...
Available Now!  MEDIEVAL MISTLETOE, an anthology of four all-new, thrilling and heartwarming medieval romance novellas. It will include my story, WILD HIGHLAND MISTLETOE plus novellas by Catherine Kean, Denise Domning, and Laurel O'Donnell. 


WILD HIGHLAND MISTLETOE by ELIZA KNIGHT
A week before Christmas, snow falls gently on the Highland hills, and once more an adventure awaits the Sutherlands! Dunrobin Castle is overflowing with excitement and holiday spirit because of the upcoming Sutherland clan gathering. Arbella's and Magnus' marriage has flourished, their passion and love growing stronger daily. But when a mysterious missive arrives begging Laird and Lady Sutherland for help in a rescue mission, they leave the safety of the castle, and ride headlong into a trap. Will they thwart their enemy and make it home in time to celebrate the holiday season in good Scottish fashion? Or will warring clans prevail?

ONE KNIGHT UNDER THE MISTLETOE by CATHERINE KEAN
Kissing Lord Renfred de Vornay, her late brother's best friend, under
the mistletoe was the last thing Lady Liliana Thornleigh ever expected
days before Christmas. Seven years have passed since Ren played his
foolish prank on her, but she hasn't forgotten that humiliating
incident--and neither, it seems, has he.  Now a wealthy and respected
lord, Ren has important information for her father, but Liliana is
suspicious of Ren's reasons for spending Christmas at her sire's castle.
As dangerous secrets involving her brother come to light, will her
hatred of Ren intensify, or will she finally put the past behind her and
accept Ren's love?


PERFECT POISON by DENISE DOMNING
Lord Jocelyn of Freyne returns from war in France injured in body and spirit to face Avice of Lavendon, the bride he spurned the previous year. Angry and hurt, Avice wants nothing to do with him. It will take more than a love potion spiced with Mistletoe to bring them together.


MISTLETOE MAGIC by LAUREL O'DONNELL
A confident knight arrives home to find his childhood friend grown into much more then he remembered.  The lady of the castle keeps a dangerous secret that threatens all she holds dear.  Will Mistletoe Magic save them?

Release Day! A DAY OF FIRE is finally here!!!

At long last, this riveting story about the final days of Pompeii is available in e-book and print!


“This truly is the finest book I have read this year, an emotional roller-coaster that educates while it entertains. Its impact will stay with me for quite some time.” ~Parmenion Books

“Despite knowing what happens in Pompeii and to the majority of its citizens, A Day of Fire is a book full of suspense, fear, and unexpected bravery.” ~Ageless Pages

“I can’t praise this book highly enough. It’s a rattling good tale of disaster, death, resolution and rebirth.” ~Dodging Arrows

“I LOVED this! The writing style, the choice of stories told, the evolution of characters, the drama. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.” ~The Maiden’s Court

"Each one of these authors deserves a huge amount of praise for putting this impressive piece of art together.” ~Steven McKay

DESCRIPTION:

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?
