Spring Fling Blog Hop

I'm excited to join Selena Blake's Spring Fling Blog Hop and tell you about my first foray into writing paranormal romance. I'm giving away a copy of that book to one one lucky winner, and don't forget to enter the Rafflecopter drawing for the free Nook as well.

The Wiccan Haus intrigued me from the moment I heard Musa Publishing was developing a magical world that was open to submissions. I saw the cover for the first book in the series, and I couldn’t look away from the intense, rugged hero. I bought my copy of Shifting Hearts by Dominique Eastwick as soon as it was available and read it that night. I fell in love with the quirky cast of characters that inhabited the island, and I knew I wanted to create a story in that world.

I’d never written paranormal before, and I’d never written for a shared world. I had reservations about both. They were both immediately put to rest. Incorporating magic and paranormal elements gave me so much story depth that wouldn’t have been possible in a straight contemporary. The characters of the Wiccan Haus were a ready-made, fun, quirky cast. I fell in love with each one, as they took turns pushing Justin and Holly to grow, heal, and recognize their love for each other.

He has nothing left to offer. She's determined to show him just how much he's worth.

Shot by a member of his military team, Justin Lawson retreats to the Wiccan Haus. Holly Walters refuses to accept her boyfriend's out-of-the-blue rejection without an explanation, even if getting the answers forces her to be trapped on a bizarre island for an entire week. She's going to use every minute to work Justin out of her system once and for all. Justin's body and spirit begin to heal under Holly's loving ministrations. As she talks about never seeing each other again, he realizes he never wants to let her go. But the rogue assassin who had gone after Justin before is after him again. Before he can fight to make Holly believe in their love, he'll have to fight for both their lives.

To be entered to win, leave a comment letting me know what you think of the Wiccan Haus series.  Then like my page on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, and follow my blog here. I'll pick one random winner to receive a copy of A Man Worth Fighting For.  Make sure to include your email address and your preferred file type (Kindle, Nook or pdf) in your comments.  Contest is open internationally.

    1. Rhonda, I'm really sorry about this. I'm not sure what the issue was. I was at a conference all day, so I didn't see this message until the hop was truly over. Was my site the only one, or was it everyone on the hop? Thanks!

  14. I LOVE the Wiccan House! I can't wait to continue the series. I am sure you did a wonderful job writing your paranormal! Thank you for the great giveaway! If I win, I would prefer a Kindle copy. Thanks again. :)
