Hiding in my Box Fort


There is a box fort in my dining room. I am serious! We are accumulating a rather impressive pile of boxes displaying an array of company logos. They are a mixture of our previous home deliveries, and boxes that my husband brought home from work. And why do we need these boxes? Take a wild guess… you are correct! We are moving to a new house!

Needless to say, my work routine will be a little chaotic during the next month or so. We don’t yet have a fixed date for moving, indeed we are still in the throes of surveys, official land tests, and all the other important documents that our solicitors need to produce and mull over. But we finally have a “sold” sign outside our house, and our new home is ready and waiting. I am so excited. It has taken me five years to reach this point (my husband doesn’t like change), and I will be very happy to be in a bigger home, with more space, and the possibility of creating my very own garden office at some point in the future. Have a great week, my friends!

*Discount Book* The Darkness of Love #ASMSG #booksale


Time is running out! You can download my Victorian vampire romance novel, The Darkness of Love with a hefty 25% discount, but only until 31st March. This book was a spin-off from the Redcliffe Novels that I wrote several years ago, and it tells the story of Marcus Scott and his transition from human to vampire.


A Victorian vampire lord seeks an heir for his estate in this English Gothic novel with passion and flair.

Lord Gregory Stockton is a powerful and respected businessman embracing the modern era of the Victorian industrial revolution. He has a grand and beautiful manor house complete with a repertoire of servants, and his young wife is charming, attractive, and the perfect lady to his gentleman. The only thing they lack is an heir to the family estate. Lord Gregory knows he can never produce a child, for he is a vampire, although his wife and servants know nothing of his secrets. There are other ways to provide heirs for his estate, however, and Lord Gregory has noticed the romantic attraction between his wife and the young stable hand Marcus Scott. He hatches a plan to bring the would-be lovers together, and then cruelly tear them apart as he continues to build his empire and secure his power base in the south of England. The humans are pawns in the vampires game of lust, love and control.

Colliding with You by Kelli McCracken

Today I feature a book from guest author Kelli McCracken. Enjoy!


Cori Clarke spent twenty-one years walking in her sister's shadow. Being her bridesmaid is a duty she cannot refuse, even though her sister is marrying a man Cori always desired. The wedding is not a total loss once she runs into Jesse Woods, the older brother of her childhood friend. There are plenty of reasons to resist him, yet part of Cori is begging for Jesse's touch. Regardless of how hard she fights against her desire, an exposed secret leaves her in urgent need of his help.

A complicated relationship is the last thing Jesse wants or needs. Being in a band left little time to find a girl genuinely interested in him, not the rock star he was becoming. Before he and Cori reconnected, he never thought he would be attracted to one of his sister's friends. Cori always meant more to him but admitting as much means confessing to something he has hidden for years. He cannot afford to make himself vulnerable to any woman.

When Jesse's agent makes a ridiculous request, he spins it in his favor, allowing him to help Cori escape a dire situation. Now that she is his responsibility, he is in an awkward position. Being together dredges up old feelings. The ones Jesse has tried to forget. The ones Cori is just discovering.

Colliding with You is the second book in the Touched by Magic Series. If you like contemporary romances packed full of sass, steam, and second chances, then you’ll enjoy Kelli McCracken’s sensual tale of love and loyalty.

KINDLE UNLIMITED: Yes
PRICE: 99c (normal price $2.99)

My Book of Pets, by Catherine Hargreaves, aged 8


It is surprising what comes to light when you lose a relative. At the weekend I went to collect some items from my grandparents’ house prior to it being sold on in probate. My dad had told me about some photos and papers he had discovered, but I had forgotten one document in particular that he mentioned: My Book of Pets, by Catherine Hargreaves, aged 8.

Yes, apparently, I was destined to be an author from a very young age. I created this booklet when I just 8 years old, and it is very cute. And today, while at home recovering from her surgery, my daughter has created her very own book of pets that we can keep alongside my vintage document from 1990. Precious memories!

TWO RECKLESS HEARTS (Barrett Ridge #1)


Five sultry nights. Two reckless hearts. One family wedding.

What could go wrong?
  
He’s a temptation she can’t risk…



Jami Barrett is fed up. First, she’s jilted by her fiancé, then she’s expected to endure her sister’s crazy Caribbean wedding. Now, her arch rival has crashed the party! But Beck Kavanagh is more than just the black-hearted foe set to ruin the family’s business and her chance to win her father’s trust, he’s the groom’s brother. To make matters worse, she can’t stop daydreaming about Beck’s laughing gray eyes and his surprisingly soft heart.  With a make-or-break deal and her loyalty in the balance, Jami’s feeling the pressure…and the heat of her hidden desire.

Beck Kavanagh has no time for sarcastic, competitive women, especially one who’s his real estate adversary and newest in-law. Jami’s out for his blood, and all he wants is to keep the peace. Yet, her sharp wit and delicious curves make him yearn for a midnight, tropical tryst. When a wacky treasure hunt goes haywire and Jami tumbles into his arms, Beck knows he’s met his match and found his one true love.

One beach resort. Two ambitious rivals. Will steamy island nights tempt enemies to become lovers?

Life Adventures give Inspiration

I am in hospital. Alder Hey Children’s Hospital to be exact. My eldest daughter was admitted at the weekend in a flurry of chaos following a short illness. You can read the full story over on my pagan housewife blog, but for now I will share a little about my experience.


We have become familiar with visiting hospitals during the past four years when my father-in-law had a serious cycling accident. Now I am experiencing the life of a patient, a child patient to be exact. My daughter is 7 and wants me with her throughout the whole unpleasant experience, so I am camping beside her hospital bed. All of the activity, the various departments we have visited, the two hospitals and the associated flurry of chaos, has been like fuel for my writer brain. It will go into my novels at some point in the future. I will give my characters elements of the people I have met, I will use the locations as settings, and all sorts of other little features that help to build a story. Even in the darkest times, we can create magic.

Vampire of Blackpool by Catherine Green

British paranormal romance author Catherine Green has taken a break from her Redcliffe novels series set in Cornwall, and has launched her brand-new novel, Vampire of Blackpool. A contemporary English Gothic story, it tells the tale of vampire Meredith Hanson, her love interest Samantha Morris, and her rival, the vampire hunter Ryan James. The novel is strictly for an adult audience, and Catherines vampires do not sparkle!


Excerpt:
What are you doing here, Meredith? Samantha asked.
            I smiled but said nothing. Samantha looked at Ryan James. She frowned.
            Did you do this to him? she asked, moving forward but keeping the bed as a barrier between me and her.
            She leaned forward, appraising her patient with a professional eye. She took in the sling on his arm, the cuts and bruises all over his skin, and the large bandage on his left shoulder. She reached over and carefully lifted a corner of it, and her eyes widened. She knew the truth.
            Why did you do this? she asked, And why are you here now?

Writing in the Background

It occurred to me recently that I haven’t done any proper writing so far this year. By that I mean I haven’t worked on any of my novels. The only writing I currently do is the freelance blog writing on my SpookyMrsGreen blog. My time has been stolen away by domestic dramas and related activity. The main issue is my house. We are currently trying to sell so that we can upsize and get me a proper office space, but our house has been on the market for almost a year and so far, nobody wants it.
I need an office, not my dining room table!
Apparently, the first-time buyers that we seek don’t want to put the work in to make our house pretty again. It is old, built in 1896, but it is a good sized 2-bed terrace, and it is solid, cosy and warm. For now, I veer between desperately wanting to redecorate and try to make it appealing, to constantly moving toys around to try and give us more floor space, to doing the constant round of cleaning and tidying that comes of having a family and preparing for house viewings (we have one later today). My writing will resume eventually.

*RELAUNCH* My Vampire Boyfriend #Erotica #UrbanFantasy #ASMSG

I have a Valentine’s Day treat for you, my friends! Sink your teeth into this fantastic short story anthology featuring characters from the Redcliffe Novels British Paranormal Romance series. I have relaunched My Vampire Boyfriend (A Redcliffe Anthology) with a sexy new cover courtesy of NEJ Photography, and a bonus additional short story inside. The whole book has been made over so it is sleek, sexy and seductive. Enjoy!



The witch, her vampire, and his identical twin werewolf brother. What could possibly go wrong?


The pretty seaside town of Redcliffe in Cornwall is a popular location for holidaymakers during the summer season. It has good waves for surfing, good pubs for socialising, and a vibrant tourist industry. It is also home to a hidden werewolf pack, and several vampires and witches, who all live within human society, pretending to be just like the rest of us.

Bookshop owner Jessica Stone used to be one of those humans. Then she met Detective Jack Mason and his twin brother, Danny. They took her on a wild adventure that shows no sign of slowing down. Now she is deeply embedded with the vampires and werewolves, learning the power of their lust, and a magnetic attraction that is just too hard to ignore. She is also learning about her own true heritage, and how to feed her desires and satisfy her powerful animal familiar that resides within.

This anthology contains adult themes, and scenes of a sexual nature. The short stories offer a glimpse into the sexual adventures of a fledgling witch, her vampire and werewolf, and their friends in various compromising situations.

Eye of the Tiger (A Redcliffe Novel) Book 4 #TheRedcliffeNovels

Jessica Stone used to be a normal human. Then she fell in love with a vampire, met his identical twin werewolf brother, and her life fell apart spectacularly. Meeting Detective Jack Mason, and his brother Danny, brought about a powerful change, and Jessica’s magic was released. Now, in Redcliffe book 4, she must learn to control her ethereal animal familiar, who lusts after the alpha werewolf, and will stop at nothing to use her human mistress as a tool... Or is that a weapon?


The Redcliffe novels series follow the adventures of bookshop owner Jessica Stone as she meets a man and falls in love, only to discover the hidden werewolf secrets of her close friends. That includes Simon Bunce, manager of the Ship Inn, who turns out to be lieutenant to the Redcliffe werewolf pack, and lover to the wolf alpha Danny Mason. He fights to protect his master from the ethereal animal familiar who threatens to claim their pack. Who knew the Cornish coast could be so deadly?



Excerpt:

            I dont know, I replied, Am I being naïve?
           
Maybe, Crystal said, You still have a lot to learn about living with supernatural creatures. Actually, you have a lot to learn about being one, too.
            I took a deep breath and let it out slowly.
            So, I take it one day at a time, then, I said.
            Crystal nodded.
            Yes, she replied, I think that is the best way to handle everything. Give Danny the space to mourn for his lost lieutenant, but dont shut him out if he asks you for help. It will be uncomfortable, but I know you care about him and you cannot hide the fact. Your friendship is just a little more physical than it would be with another human.
            I swallowed nervously.
            You keep talking about us as non-human, I said, But I am still human, surely. I mean, yes I have this animal familiar living inside my subconscious somewhere, but physically Im just a normal person, right?
            Crystal stared straight at me, and in the soft lamp light of her living room her violet eyes seemed to glow like jewels. It was eerie, but she was incredibly beautiful in a frightening way. My breath caught in my throat as I stared at her, unable to look away.
            You are both, she replied, You are human, yes, but you are a witch Jessica. If you take some time to study your craft, learn how to utilize your powers and those of your animal familiar, you will become far more than a mere human. But it takes time, patience, and lots of practice.
            I nodded and a pang of excitement shot through me. It was almost like a voice inside my head was screaming for me to get on with it and discover what we were capable of. I didnt know who the we was. I knew that it was not Suri. It was yet another spiritual entity, and one that I did not have the strength to explore at this time. But maybe later, when everything had settled with Jack and Danny, I could explore my witchcraft and see where it took me.
            I returned home that night feeling a lot lighter in my heart and with a slightly clearer mind. Crystal couldnt fix my problems, but she had certainly given me the advice I needed. I was no longer in the human world. I had to stop thinking like one, and I couldnt keep hiding from Danny and the wolves. It was time to return to the Ship Inn.

Love Redeems (A Redcliffe Novel) Book 3 #TheRedcliffeNovels

Life has changed forever in Redcliffe, Cornwall. Jessica Stone used to be a normal, happy human. Now she is an angry, conflicted and confused witch. It all happened when she met Detective Jack Mason and his identical twin brother Danny. Jessica almost died twice, fell into a love triangle, and she became a murderer. Now she faces the ultimate challenge as she continues the fight to save the man she loves, while simultaneously struggling with her lust for his werewolf brother and their vampire friend. Can she survive, or will love finally end her life completely?


The Redcliffe novels series follow the adventures of bookshop owner Jessica Stone as she meets a man and falls in love, only to discover the hidden werewolf secrets of her close friends. That includes Simon Bunce, manager of the Ship Inn, who turns out to be lieutenant to the Redcliffe werewolf pack, and lover to the wolf alpha Danny Mason. He fights to protect his master from the ethereal animal familiar who threatens to claim their pack. Who knew the Cornish coast could be so deadly?



Excerpt:

“Of course we frighten the alpha,” she said scornfully, in my mind, “He is but a wolf. We are far superior. Allow me to demonstrate.”
            And she sprang forward without warning, heading straight for my body. I cried out, trying to move away from Danny and Simon, but I was too slow. My body convulsed as Suri merged her spirit with mine. I felt it happen, but I was powerless to react. I had no idea what I was dealing with. I was still just a witch in training. Opening my eyes, I turned slowly, searching for the alpha male. Danny was standing in the doorway, staring at me, his own power flaring, swirling around him in a delicious storm of turmoil. Licking my lips, I advanced upon him slowly, stalking my prey. My body felt lithe and supple, and while I still looked and walked like a human, I could feel a tail swishing behind me, and my muscles were that of the snow tiger. She was superimposed around my body, and both wolves could clearly see her.
            “Jessica,” Danny said, shaking his head, “Jessica, please don’t do this. Send her away. Fight her.”
            I laughed, and my voice sounded deep and throaty, ending in a growl.
            “I do not want to send her away,” I said, “I want to embrace her power. She is my tiger. We work together.”
            “You don’t mean that,” Danny replied, “Remember who I am.”
            “You are the alpha male,” I said, “You are worthy of our attention.”
            “Jessica,” Danny said, “I do not want to play with your tiger. I want you,” he paused, staring at me with glowing blue eyes, “Jessica, I want you.” He said again.
            I hesitated, mulling over his words. Something stirred within me, a memory of another man who looked identical to the alpha. The other man was not a wolf. He was dead.  I didn’t want a dead thing. I wanted heat, power, and life. I moved towards the alpha, my body preparing to pounce. My movements were smooth, agile and feline. I loved the way I moved, so graceful and delicate, so strong. I pounced.
