To the Vampires, to make much of Time

The Emily Chronicles, or How One Little Seer Changed Magiciankind
 
It all started with Simon, in more ways than one. I started Simon's story before writing my first Bad Witch book, Blood, Smoke and Mirrors, so it was inevitable that he showed up in that book, and Emily and Michael came with him. The three of them kept stealing scenes the moment I wrote them, from comments from the undead peanut gallery to the brick in Emily's handbag. I knew I had to write more about the adventures of Simon, Emily and Michael, and thus The Importance of Being Emily came about.

In TIoBE, I was able to go back in time to Emily and Michael's mortal days in Victorian England to introduce the story of how they fell in love, despite the fact that Michael was already to committed to becoming an immortal member of the Order of St. Jerome. While I love letting these characters loose in the modern world of the Bad Witch books, the Emily Chronicles allows me to share where they came from, and, more importantly, how that journey affected the modern-day plot.

Nightfall Print Release Party

Nightfall is now available in print and ebook! I'm celebrating with a few giveaways, but first, here's the blurb:

Her heart says "never". Her body says "now".

When a wounded runner stumbles into her workshop, sculptor Talena Spenser's comfortable, quiet life is shattered. Aiding the escaped slave risks losing more than just her freedom. She is in phase, when Cy'ren females are overwhelmed by the drive to mate.

Mordacki Loren, shadow sword of House Nightfall, knows the pain of losing a mate. He never intended to take another. But Talena, raised by humans with little knowledge of Cy'ren ways, leaves him no choice. As the mating lust consumes them, Dack promises to honor her wishes—even if that means letting her go.

Scarred and hardened by a munitions accident that sent her Alliance career up in flames, Carmen Hawke joined the Cy'ren resistance as captain of the flagship Talon. When old flame Dack returns from a mission with Carmen's childhood friend and first love, Talena, in tow, the temptation to allow someone—or two someones—close to her again cracks her emotional armor.

Pursued by an unknown enemy, the trio works together to discover the secrets of Talena's past, and to uncover a threat that could destroy the fragile peace of the Cy’ren homeworld.

Warning: If the epic space battles, gunfights and swordplay aren’t enough to get you going, strap yourself in for a male-female-female threesome that's scorching enough to fire your engines into overdrive.
