Top Pick
"I loved this book!  It had pretty much all of my favorite things—medieval times, a kick-ass heroine, a protective hero, magic, and a dash of mayhem."
The Romance Reviews

"I'm a sucker for time travel stories . . . this one is genius with its delivery."
—Scandalicious Book Reviews

Rendezvous with Yesterday was such a fun time-traveling action-packed romance!"
—Book Munchies

Modern-day bounty hunter Bethany Bennett helps her brother track two fugitives to a forest outside of Houston, Texas. But what should have been a routine apprehension of two bail skippers spirals out of control and ends in violence. After Beth and her brother are both seriously injured, a mysterious figure suddenly looms over her. And, when the smoke clears, Beth finds herself not only in another place, but in another time.

As Lord Robert, Earl of Fosterly, attempts to identify and track down the nameless enemy who has been plaguing his lands and people with violence, the most peculiar woman stumbles into his path. Small, vulnerable, yet possessed of a bold, fiery spirit and wicked sense of humor, she persists in dubbing Robert and his men members of something called a medieval reenactment group . . . until she sees his castle and labels herself insane. It seems bounty hunter Bethany Bennett has come to him from the future, bringing with her laughter and chaos, swiftly winning the hearts of his people and inspiring within him a love he thought he would never experience again. But when Robert discovers a way for her to return to her time, will the love they share be enough to keep them together?

If you read my Immortal Guardians series,
but have never tried this one:

Seth and Marcus both appear in Rendezvous With Yesterday  Marcus (hero of Night Reigns, Immortal Guardians Book 2) is the mortal squire of the hero in this one. I loved seeing him as a teenager. ;-)

Look what came in the mail: some Death of Darkness posters. Sooooo pretty. Of course, I had to launch a giveaway. I intended to choose a winner on Thursday, but Facebook did something weird with the links. So I fixed them and extended the giveaway one more day. That means you still have time to enter to win.

I'll choose a winner tonight (Friday). You can enter HERE.

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! Only a week and a half to go until Seth's book releases! I'm so excited!! Some of the reviewers I sent ARCs to have begun to share snippets of their reviews with me... and they are awesome!! I'll share some with you soon. Until then, I thought I would offer you another sneak peek into the pages of Death of Darkness that will give you a glimpse of Seth and Leah:
He took so much upon himself to try to spare others. When she would’ve loosened her hold to look up at him, Seth tightened his arms around her. 
“Let me hold you a little longer,” he whispered. 
Nodding, she relaxed against him. 
Several minutes passed while they just held each other. 
“You make everything better, Leah,” he murmured. 
Warmth burrowed through her chest, straight to her heart. “You do, too.”
Have a wonderful weekend!



  1. Sounds like Seth is sad, it's ok, Leah will make things better. Just over a week left!
    Thanks for sharing Dianne!

  2. Seth sounds overwhelmed. Glad he has to meet him feel better.

  3. 😒😒😒πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’•πŸ’•❤️❤️❤️

  4. These snippets are making the wait unbearable!!!
