New Cover • KIRA

NEWKIRACOVERKIRA has a beautiful new face, just in time for spring!

Blurb:

Poisoned by an enemy, Kira struggles to find an antidote before she succumbs to enslavement. At the same time, she’s desperate to save Dorsit, a Leopard Clan wizard whose youth and magic has been stolen by a murderous wizard on a rampage. As Kira’s homeland is invaded by bloodthirsty legions, Kira flees across the country in a bid to reach the Mystic Mountain nymphs and a legendary cure. Hunted by shadow hounds, an army of Cyclopes, and an evil jinn, will her wits and skill as a warrior be enough to survive?

Excerpt:

When Reye and Kira emerged from the lodge, he yanked her down behind a horse trough in time to escape the notice of a squad of armor-clad Cyclopes marching south down the main street. Huge axes and other weapons hung from the giants’ belts or were gripped in their massive fists.

“What on Yden are those creatures?” Reye whispered.

“Mandral calls them cygards,” she murmured. “He’s formed an army of Cyclopes.”

“That’s insane!”

“If we don’t get out of Eastknot before his cygards surround the town, we’ll be captured. My father will have no warning what’s about to befall Nomad Territory.”

“Wyckcrest is seven days from here,” Reye said. “Even if we rode hard, we wouldn’t get there in time to do much good.”

“Ylan is four days away, and I just learned Dorsit is alive. He can transport us directly to my father’s encampment, and help us fight off the invasion. I fear he’s our only hope.”

Reye nodded, peeked over the trough to make sure no cygards were watching, and then pulled Kira to her feet.

“Let’s move.”

In other news, I have two “new” releases today. The word “new” is in quotes because theloveletterseriescover titles aren’t exactly brand new. The Love Letters Series: Box Set contains both A Gift for Lara and A Gift for Fiona, two stories of twin sisters whose letters go astray.

A GIFT FOR LARA: Lara Robinson wrote a love letter four years ago, but received no reply. Now the man to whom she gave her heart will visit Blythe Manor for Christmas. How can she enjoy the holidAGiftforLaraays knowing Miles Greystoke must despise her for revealing her feelings in such an unguarded fashion?

Tournament of Chance: Dragon Rebel

DragonRebel-Cory2My 2014 EPIC Award Fantasy Finalist, formerly published by Musa Publishing, is now back on the market and available for pre-orders HERE.  Release date is March 31st!

Blurb: If Heather manages to win the Tournament of Chance, she’ll be the first commoner to earn a place at court. Instead of a glorious victory, however, she’s arrested and marked for execution. After a daring escape, she joins the Dragon Rebels, who seek to overthrow the despotic monarchy and restore the former kingdom of Ormaria. Amongst the rebels are three shape-shifting wizards who claim to be rulers from the past. On a perilous quest to free the wizards’ magic, Heather battles wild dragons, vicious predators, angry trolls, and unexpected traitors. When a horrendous accident sends her back in time to fulfill a mysterious prophecy, she must rely on her warrior skills, wits, and endurance to survive.

Excerpt:

The creaking of the dungeon door made Heather flinch. To her surprise, Joe appeared.

“How did you get in here?” she whispered.

“I stole the key. You’ve got to go now.”

“I’ll be executed if I’m caught trying to escape!”

“I hate to break it to you, but you’re going to be executed either way. The commoners are right angry about the tournament. You’ve become a symbol now, and a danger to the monarchy.”

Heather followed him out of her cell and into the unoccupied corridor. As they crept through the dungeons, she expected Joe to lead her up the stairs. She winced when he lifted a heavy metal grate and slipped into a sewer trench instead. With few other options, she did likewise. They sloshed through the smelly waste, toward a sliver of light she guessed led to the outside.

“Do you swim?” Joe asked.

“Huh?”

“The castle is built on a cliff, and this trench spills down into the ocean below. We’ll have to jump from the opening to escape.”

“What!” Heather only had a moment for his words to register because a cacophony of shouting and torchlight at the far end of the trench indicated they’d been discovered.

“Oops,” Joe said. “Be sure to dive away from the cliff so you don’t get crushed on the rocks below.”

He bounded the last few feet and launched himself fearlessly out into space. Heather blanched as he dove into the ocean, a hideously long way down. When an arrow whizzed past her ear, she could hesitate no longer. Bending her knees, she jumped with all the strength she could muster.

As they travel to England together on a luxurious ocean liner, their tempestuous relationship encounters more than rough seas. Although Wesley is increasingly attracted to Belle, she is already engaged. While Belle begins to regret her hasty promise to marry, she is bound by honor and duty to keep her pledge. Furthermore, a thoughtless fabrication on her part threatens to expose her as a liar. Neither Wesley nor Belle can foresee that their voyage across the Atlantic will be fraught with peril, and will cost more than one man his life.

What reviewers are saying:

Sunday Freebie • A Gift for Fiona

Originally posted on S.G. Rogers, Author:

AG4FcoverFriday the 13th may be a recent memory, but you’re still in luck! Today you can download A Gift for Fiona, absolutely free!

Here’s the blurb:

With one sister married and another soon to be engaged, Fiona Robinson worries she’ll be on the shelf. She pins her hopes on a handsome viscount, but his unexpected proposal to another girl hands her a stinging and demoralizing defeat. A new acquaintance awakens all her senses—until she realizes he’s related to the girl who stole her beau. On the heels of her public humiliation, should Fiona instead consider marriage to a much older man whom she could never love?

Fiona’s unconventional, earthy looks and mischievous personality appeal to Rory Braithwaite much more than any other woman he’s ever met. Unfortunately, his sister has been the means of ruining Fiona’s happiness. Can he convince Fiona of his sincerity before she makes a mistake…
