A Sorceress of His Own Excerpt & Great News!

Happy Friday!  I have fantastic news!

A Sorceress of His Own, the first book in my new series The Gifted Ones, will be available in audio!!  Woohoo!!  Tantor Audio is going to produce it.  And the narrator will be Kirsten Potter, who also narrates my Immortal Guardians books.  Hooray!  The A Sorceress of His Own Audiobook will be released on June 5th, only three days after the ebook and paperback.  It is already available for pre-order on Amazon and Tanor's site.  I'll let you know when it pops up on Audible.  Here are some links:

As for the latest Immortal Guardians news . . . I'm currently going over proofs for Phantom Embrace.  If this is your first time hearing about it, Phantom Embrace is a novella I wrote for the On the Hunt anthology, which will be released on the same day as Shadows Strike, Immortal Guardians Book 6:  August 25th.  It tells Yuri's story, and I'm really enjoying reading back through it.  :-)

My A Sorceress of His Own Blog Tour begins next week.  I can't wait!  In it, you'll find A Sorceress of His Own's Prologue, character interviews (Marcus, Roland and Seth), author interviews, guest posts, excerpts, spotlights and more.  And it will include an awesome tour-wide giveaway—a $50 Amazon Gift Card, a $20 Amazon Gift Card, and a signed book and swag.  I plan to put the schedule up here on my blog and on my website this weekend.  Until then, you can find the schedule HERE.

Also, just a reminder . . . My A Sorceress of His Own Extravaganza is still going on.  For the first time, I have access to pre-order numbers.  So I'm thanking readers by giving away goodies every 500 pre-orders (prize packs at the 500 marks and gift cards at the 1000 marks) that come in.  Here are the prizes I've given away so far:

I've passed the 4500 pre-orders mark, so next I'll give away a $50 Amazon Gift Card.

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  Less than 3 weeks to go until the release of A Sorceress of His Own.  So, for today's selection, I thought I would give you a brief excerpt that features Dillon and Alyssa, the hero and heroine:

Releasing his arm, she followed him down the steps and matched his strides—slowed so as not to tire her—as he began traversing the inner bailey.  “I appreciate your concern, my lord, but naught can be done to alter things as they are.  A life’s worth of superstition and distrust cannot be erased in a day.  Or a fortnight.  Or even a year for that matter.”

“Aye, it can change in a day,” he declared gruffly.  “It will change in a day.  I must simply apply myself to discovering the means I shall use to induce the metamorphosis.”

“And a great metamorphosis ’twould be.  Even more so now.”  Alyssa’s lips twitched.  Glancing around to ensure their privacy, she murmured teasingly from the safety of her cowl, “A few hours in my arms and you believe yourself capable of sorcery.  Mayhap wizardry does course through my veins.”

A burst of laughter escaped him, turning heads as far as the stables.  His eyes twinkled merrily.  “A few more such hours and I could work miracles.  What say you, Healer?”

When she made no response, her boldness now lurking behind timidity, he laughed again.  “Would that I could see your face,” he pronounced, lowering his voice.  “’Tis no doubt as flushed as the rest of your beautiful body was when I—”

“Ahem.”  The sound of a man clearing his throat behind them interrupted him.

Dillon closed his eyes and gripped his forehead in a visible attempt to generate patience.

Alyssa bit her lip to keep from laughing.

“Dillon?  A moment, if you will?”

They turned in unison to confront his brother.  

I know I probably say this every week, but . . . I'm so excited!!!  

Have a wonderful weekend!



  1. ...972 books on my Nook and 564 on my Kindle( that doesn't include thousands donated to public library) and IG is hands down my favorite series. I work in the medical field and due to/for professional reasons I do not have face book, I wish, would love a signed book and/or bookmark. I am going to buy a messenger bag on Café press and a coffee mug though. Thank you so much for your books!

    1. Thank you so much, Angie! I'm so happy to hear you're enjoying the series! Sorry I've been running most of my contests on Facebook in recent months. It's a time thing. (Facebook giveaways are just quicker.) For non-facebook chances to win goodies: I'm giving away a signed book and swag as one of the prizes on my blog tour. And, if you pre-order A Sorceress of His Own, be sure to enter my big Extravaganza/Giveaway. I just sent a big package to the third winner. :-)

      I hope you'll like the new series! Ethan's book, too, when it's released in August. :-)
