The Hot for the Holidays anthology recently went up for pre-order on Amazon.com and at other outlets, so I feel like I can finally talk a little about my novella. This anthology of stories will feature Lora Leigh, Angela Knight, Allyson James and me.
My offering is titled Sweet Enchantment and will kick off what I hope will be a new paranormal romance series. (Don’t worry, you won’t need to read this novella to understand the rest of the series. They will all be stand alone.) It’s fae-based and I drew the worldbuilding for the series largely from Irish myth and legend, weaving in fae myth and legend from other countries. It’s contemporary set and the myth/legend I drew from is twisted in the way only my brain can twist things (which is pretty damn…well, you get the picture).
For years Ronan Quinn has loved Bella, knowing he could never have her. Uncaring of his own life if Bella is not in it, he agrees to do something that will guarantee his death–pull a burglary job for the Phaendir, a group of druids responsible for the downfall and imprisonment of the fae races in the modern world. Once he’s imprisoned and awaiting execution, Bella appeals to the fae queen to save him, letting Ronan know Bella still carries a spark of emotion for him.
Ronan will do anything to fan that spark to a raging inferno, and nothing will stop him. Not prison, not the possession of the powerful artifact he stole, not the Phaendir, not even the powerful Summer Queen who wants his head to roll.
This anthology will release September 29, 2009.
