Canadian born and bred, and a lifelong dreamer, I began writing at an early age and can’t recall a time when I wasn’t creating in some artistic form. My life has had several on-going love affairs that shape much of what I write, the American West, Victorian England, cowboys, a passion for pirates, Greek Gods, and Ancient Egypt. The other endless love affair in my life is Italia and all its magic, beauty, and dazzling culture. That passion spills into all aspects of my life.
Triselle has survived a winter of devastating snows. Spring has come,
and with it, unending rain. The land is dying, along with any hope for
happiness. Drawn to her lord’s castle, Triselle leaves her father’s farm
and finds herself in a magical world under a curse.
Lord Vanir suffers as a man transformed into a hideous beast. The
appearance of lovely Triselle threatens to send him deeper into his
living hell. Her adventurous spirit and accepting heart surprise him,
however. Somehow, she sees through his ugly countenance to the noble,
generous man hidden within.
Can they find love despite adversity? Or will the curse condemn them both?
What noise disturbed his slumber? The portcullis lifted!
Vanir heaved himself from bed, and trudged to his window. The portcullis
had not moved since January. Had his curse been lifted? Running a hand
over the rough chest he would never accept as his own, he issued a
disappointed growl. If the curse remained, then who…what…entered his
Sheets of rain hindered his visibility. Soon, the drops waned, and he
discerned a figure moving through the outer bailey. A female figure. His
salvation? Perhaps another means of increasing his torment.
Sighing, he wrapped a fur about his shoulders as she passed from the
outer bailey to the inner. She seemed to have no purpose as she
meandered along Trade Row. Who was she? Had she come here for a reason
or had she simply stumbled upon his nightmare?
Plaited hair hung past her hips, and her clothing seemed plain. She
stepped to his inner bailey and her gaze followed the stone walls of his
donjon. Her upturned face revealed large eyes and truly fair features.
His stomach dropped. She had come to increase his despair.
Clamping his jaw until his teeth ached, he planted fists upon the
window’s stone embrasure. A companion for the first time in six months.
Why did she have to be a beauty? A lovely maiden would shun his hideous
countenance. Scream from one look at him. Despise his presence within
his own walls.
From the gateway, metal against metal rang out, echoing within the solid
walls of his baileys. Already she ran for the exit. Not a good sign.
Warning: Alice in Eroticland contains extreme sexual situations
He wants proof? Fine. She bets Blake she can make him fall for her by using the rules in her latest novel before the end of the convention, or she’ll denounce love in front of all her fellow authors and fans at the Romance Lovers Convention ball. A dangerous game to be sure, but humiliating Blake is worth the risk.
But when Seven realizes she’s the one who’s being seduced, she’s no longer sure who is playing whom...or whether she’ll have a career when the bet is over.
