An immortal knight…

On the night of the winter solstice, Sir Arthur Dagonet once again sips Merlin’s potion and transforms from an elderly man to a young one. Once his metamorphosis was a gift. Now it’s a curse. He’s had centuries of adventure, but lost all he has loved when he could not die. Until the High Priestess of the magical Vallen provides a possible escape from the endless cycle.

A life without life…

Kate Cherrington cobbled together a life by making herself a necessary part of her aunt’s household, teaching her cousins how to use their magic. But her life is a trap. Her aunt, the High Priestess of the Vallen, will not present her to Regency London society. Her only escape is within the travel books she devours. Until she meets a man who’s living the life she longs for.

A timeless force…

Can a twenty year-old woman make life worth living for a thousand year old man? Though eager to rid himself of his immortality, brave, beautiful Kate sparks memories of Sir Arthur’s happy exploits with the Children of Avalon, the first of the magical Vallen. But bound by promises to the priestess, Kate and Sir Arthur find themselves facing a force more powerful than either anticipated, a force stronger than any desire for life or death: the magic of love.

A woman with no choice…

For Tatiana Ashurst, there’s no escaping destiny. Magically powerful and preordained to give birth to the most powerful Vallen priestess in seven generations, it’s her duty to marry well. But she wants the same thing her twin sister has—the right to choose her own husband. For a woman like Tatiana, however, such a thing can never be permitted.

A man who must choose…

Kit Vallentyn would rather devote himself to overseeing the family estate. But his father insists it’s time for an advantageous marriage—one centered on power and wealth. Reluctantly scouting the new crop of debutantes, he finds himself unaccountably attracted to a mysterious woman who is plain, penniless, ineligible… and utterly enchanting.

A storm of desire…

When Tatiana nearly uses her powers in public, Kit saves her from shocking the Georgian English society and revealing her abilities. Despite Kit's own magic strength, Tatiana is certain their marriage would never be possible. She just can’t help being drawn to this handsome man who extends a spell of desire over her more powerful than any she can conjure. The only way to survive the storm looming on the horizon will be to have the courage to shed their secrets and discover their true destinies together.

What Others Have Said About Storm on the Horizon

[Meredith Bond] “knows how to write romance, and write it well! This book has everything I love in a good romance book: strong, intelligent heroines; sexy and intriguing male leads, and an interesting and unique storyline (along with some sexy moments--ooh-la-la!). I couldn't put this book down, and it stayed with me for days.” – ReaderUSA from Amazon

“This is one sweet, enjoyable, romantic read.  I read Magic in the Storm first, and I must admit that reading this novella makes me want to read Magic again! Both are such great reads; I had trouble putting them down!” – Tamara Ward, author

“Although a short story this will send the reader on an emotional journey with a hope of a perfect outcome.” – lindsayandjaneviewsandreviews.com

Greetings, 
In regards to the Matter of the un-entailed Estate of the late-Jonathan Hambly, 10th Earl of Banfield, be advised that your attendance is urgently required at the reading of his lordship’s Last Will & Testament, to take place on November 1st of this year at Castle Keyvnor in Bocka Morrow, Cornwall. 
Regards, 
Mr. Timothy Hunt, Esq. 

When the late-Earl of Banfield’s distant relations descend upon Bocka Morrow, they’ll find gypsies, witches, pixies, smugglers, and one very haunted castle. And if they’re lucky, they might just fall in love while they’re there. 

SPELLBOUND, The Haunting of Castle Keyvnor includes: 

Claire Delacroix's Something Wicked This Way Comes 
Seven years ago, Sophia Brisbane lost everything—her father, her brother, her family fortune—but worse, was rejected by the man she loved. She’s determined not to yearn for the past and its pleasures—until she encounters Lucien de Roye again. Although he knew Sophia could never be his own, Lucien vowed to retrieve her squandered inheritance—even wagering his very soul to a demon. When Sophia learns what he has done, no force on heaven or earth will convince her to let him pay the demon’s due, no matter what the cost to herself. 

Jane Charles's Her Gypsy Lord 
Lady Charlotte Beck craves just one little adventure, which is nearly impossible as her older brothers are the most diligent of chaperones. However, when her family is summoned to Castle Keyvnor for the reading of her great-uncle’s will, Charlotte can hardly contain her excitement. Ghosts, magic and gypsies seem to be the ingredients to the adventure she’s been searching for. However when she meets Adam Vail in the nearby gypsy camp, it may be another adventure all together that calls to her soul…if she can survive Castle Keyvnor and one very murderous ghost. 

Claudia Dain's Lady Ghost and Lord Death: A Love Story 
Hal Mort, Viscount Blackwater, visits Keyvnor Castle in the company of friends and atop his new stallion. How was he to know that ghosts awaited him? Hal does not believe in ghosts. Unfortunately for Hal, the ghosts take an interest in him. One ghost wants to see him married to the lovely Lady Morgan. Another ghost is just as determined to see him slip the noose. As the ghosts work their supernatural magic, Hal can't determine if the intense attraction he feels for Morgan is coming from him or from them. And after a few magical kisses, he's not sure he cares. 

The Haunting of Castle Keyvnor includes twelve Regency romance novellas. Don’t miss the anthologies Vexed, Bedeviled, and Mystified.
