She was the last of her kind - and the most feared assassin was on her trail! Will o' the Wisp - Scifi Romance #scifi #scifiromance #mustread

Excerpt:
Night surrounded her. She drifted, a mere wisp on the wind, tumultuous thoughts causing the mist to darken to a cloudy grey. He was after her and if she didn’t find a host body soon, her destruction was imminent. Only in corporeal form would she have the ability to elude him, to mask her presence. Weakened as she was, she was vulnerable, easily overcome. She stifled a sob, struggling to maintain her veil of silence.
What did she know of him? Rumors abounded with his legendary skills and determination.  He was relentless, too experienced. Too determined to end my existence! Weary and distraught, she settled to the ground seeking a place to hide—to build up her flagging energy reserves for the next leg of flight. It would’ve been better to find an energy source but if he was as gifted as she’d been led to believe, he’d detect the transference and strike.
            Why is he after me? I’m not a destroyer. I don’t harm anyone? Why me? No rational explanations existed for the unanswered questions.
            Leaves rustled overhead causing her to cringe in fear, the tendrils of mist darkening to black. Mentally damning his formidable strength, she sent out miniscule feelers seeking his aura, careful not to delve too deeply lest he perceive her intrusion. What was he after?
I’m so afraid! There were so few of her kind left, so few to carry on. Devastated by failing energy resources and the lack of healthy breeders, the clan was on the verge of extinction. But I don’t deserve to die! I’m nothing, too insignificant to warrant the attention of such a fearsome and ancient being.
Kadin was far too powerful to covet her meager essence, but if legend could be believed, he was one who slaughtered his own.

Stepping Through the Portal - The Time Travelers #timetravel #romance #historical romance

My writing career began with time travel romances (Fiona, Riley's Journey, Into the Savage Dawn, Beyond Tomorrow and Aimee's Locket), but has since branched out into paranormal (Absolution, Heart of the Sorcerer) and science fiction (The Chalice, Breeder Slave, Abaddon Rising and Will o' the Wisp).

The lure of time travel has drawn me since I was very young. The original Time Machine is a favorite of mine and I've probably watched it twenty times in my life. 

I've often contemplated where I'd like to go if given the chance (of course, I would just want to visit - not stay there). Though I wouldn't consider myself a religious person, my first stop would have to be during the times of Christ and, if lucky, perhaps I could get a glimpse of him.  

I also have a penchant for ancient history, the farther back, the better. I have to admit, I always hated U.S. history. Didn't go back far enough for me. I want to read about ancient warriors, conquests, and the mysteries surrounding those periods of time.  

I'm a die-hard fan of the Discovery Channel and I watch at least one episode every day. Though my inspiration comes from many sources, the Discovery Channel is where my inspiration for Fiona and Riley's Journey came into being. Fiona is based upon the discovery of the Urumchi Mummies in the Taklamakan Desert of ancient China. These were a tall people and their remains reminiscent of Caucasian origin.  
 


This picture is one I believe they call the Beauty of Loulan and the second picture is a representation of what she might have looked like in real life.  Pretty amazing.

Riley's Journey is based upon the discovery of the Iceman Otzi. He was murdered high in the Italian Alps over 5,000 years ago.




You might be interested in researching both of these discoveries as they make for fascinating reading.


Aimee's Locket came from the imagination of my husband. He likes Westerns and suggested I try writing one! I have to admit, it was an arduous writing because the Old West wasn't far enough back for me, though I did find research on the Oregon Trail to be fascinating.

How amazing would it be to step through a portal and travel back? Would you go? I would!

Saturday and its Book Video Time - Aimee's Locket

As I have mentioned more than once, Aimee's Locket is now available in audiobook form.  I thought you might be interested in the book video I had made several years ago when my novel originally was released.  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtEyO0r6P0c&t=78s

Cowboys, Indians, wagon trains and, of course, romance. She fell through the portal and traveled back to 1847 St. Louis and the start of the Oregon Trail.

When you wanted this and got that! Riley's Journey and the trilogy

I've often speculated on what I would do if I got sent back in time. Would I have a choice where I went? Would I like it when I got there? Could I get back if I didn't?  Interesting questions! My Riley's Journey Trilogy deals with just those questions.  Unfortunately, Riley (Book 1) is sent back without her approval and ends up 40,000 years ago, to a time of Neanderthals, cave bears, saber-toothed cats and life at its beginnings.  


Could you love this guy? A Cro-Magnon? Or any male from that time period? Unwashed, bad breath, no manners?  Would be a tough reality.



It isn't until Riley meets Nathan, a fellow time traveler, that her life takes on a more positive aspect.    

Blurb: The research project was only for an "extended period." No one said anything about forever! Deceived and betrayed, Riley is sent back 40,000 years to be the mate of a man she’d never before met. Her journey will take her into a world fraught with dangers—a world made more treacherous by savage beasts, primitive Neanderthals, and the incursion of the aggressive Cro-Magnon man.

Surviving alone for five years in this vast wilderness, Nathan, along with his enormous dog, Demon, carve out a life in the perilous environment. Though thrown together by forces beyond their control, Riley and Nathan nevertheless find love—but can these two lost souls survive against such overwhelming odds?

Into the Savage Dawn and Beyond Tomorrow continue Riley's journey into prehistory. Each $.99 on Amazon.
