Blurb

Since the day Lord Dillon earned his spurs, rumors of his savagery on the battlefield have preceded him into every room, stilling tongues and sparking fear.  Weary of battle, he wishes only to find a woman he can wed who will approach him not with fear, but with the tenderness that has been absent from his life for so long.  Yet only the wisewoman seems invariably at ease in his presence.  Perhaps because she garners the same fear in others that he does himself.  

For seven years, Alyssa has been by Lord Dillon’s side, counseling him from the shadows, healing him with her hands, and staving off the worst of his loneliness while his fearsome reputation keeps others at bay.  Blessed—or cursed—with gifts that label her a sorceress, she is forced to conceal her youth and the love she harbors for him beneath umbral robes that lead Dillon and his people to believe she is the same aged wisewoman who served his father.  

All is revealed, however, and passions flare when an enemy threatens Dillon’s life and Alyssa sacrifices everything to save him.  When Dillon discovers that the wisewoman is far from elderly, he is instantly entranced.  And, as he and Alyssa work together to defeat an enemy bent on destroying them both, Dillon will risk anything—even the wrath of his king—to be with her.

Isn't the cover beautiful?  I love it!

One of the questions I'm asked most often as a writer is what inspired my Immortal Guardians series.  Well, the easy answer is:  this book, A Sorceress of His Own.  There were, of course, other sources of inspiration:  a documentary on the water bear, research into possible explanations for the emergence of vampire folklore, and a biography of King George, to name a few.  But, long before Sarah Bingham rescued Roland Warbrook with her trusty shovel in Darkness Dawns, I wrote A Sorceress of His Own . . . and the gifted ones were born.
Alyssa, the heroine of A Sorceress of His Own, was the first gifted one I created.  And she, along with Seth, Roland and Marcus—all of whom appear in this book—fired my imagination and inspired many of the what ifs that drove me to create my Immortal Guardians.  I am so incredibly excited to bring you Alyssa’s story now. I hope you will enjoy it.  And, for those who have read my Immortal Guardians books, I hope you will enjoy seeing Marcus as a mortal teenaged squire.  You'll meet Bethany—the woman he loved for eight hundred years–in the sequel.  ;-)

This book WILL also be available both on Nook and in print.  And, to celebrate the launch of the new series, I've placed the books on sale—half price—for a limited time, so make sure you pre-order a copy to lock in the low price!  :-)


I plan to celebrate A Sorceress of His Own going up for pre-order by holding a giveaway this weekend over on Facebook.  I'm thinking . . . maybe a gift card?  


So drop by and join the fun!  And congratulations to the ladies who won my latest IG swag pack giveaways on Facebook and on tsu!

Have a wonderful weekend!
