I know a lot of you are waiting for word on Cynful. (So am I. I'm hoping to hear something within the next week or two, and if I don't, I'll poke my editor.)
But I do have some contract news for you:
|Shadow of the Wolf and Hecate's Own, Books One and Two of Heart's Desire!|
The Beckett Brothers have been picked up! It's currently a four book series about magical brothers whose family was cursed long ago with lycanthropy. The only way to control the beast is to find the one the Goddess means for them, their mate, or they lose themselves forever to their beast.
Shadow of the Wolf
Heart's Desire Book 1
Christopher Beckett is tired of being alone. His wolf is howling for his mate, and Chris knows it is only a matter of time before his needs override everything else in his life. He casts the spell all the Becketts have used to call their mates to them. What he wants is a woman of an older lineage, of power to equal his own. And she has to accept the one aspect that sets him apart from almost every other wizard: his wolf.
What Chris gets is Alannah Evans, a powerful witch of the Evans Coven. The petite, dark haired woman has no problems with the wolf. What she does have a problem with is the fact that Chris is a wizard. Since wizards and witches don’t get along very well, neither should they, but the sparks flying between them can’t be denied. Chris isn’t taking no for an answer. When it becomes clear that an old enemy has targeted them both Chris will wind up engaging his enemy in a duel that could cost him his life.
Or worse: Lana.
Book 2 of Heart's Desire
Zachary Beckett has been a screw-up most of his life, but he's finally done something right. He saved his brother's life at great personal cost, and now he's on his way to Cleveland to train as a witch. There he meets Johra Yashodar, a teacher with the belief that Zach is still a screw-up. It isn't long before Zach realizes he's hot for teacher.
Jo has never met someone like Zachary Beckett. His blue eyes haunt her, his body is made for sin and his magic... well. The less said about that the better. He's the worst witch she's ever met, bar none. But Jo is determined to help him, and to do that she'll fight the attraction she feels towards him tooth and nail.
But things aren't always what they seem, and when Zach realizes he's under a hex he comes into his own... as one of Hecate's Own. Chosen by the Goddess Herself to fight evil, it's up to Zach and his brothers to save Jo from a fate worse than death.
I can't wait to fill out the art forms on these. The art department is going to hunt me down. They've been known to run and hide when they see my name on the form.
