Ahhh… summer reading takes me back to when I was in high school.  It seemed each summer I was hooked on a particular author.  One of my favorites was (and still is) Danielle Steele.  Who isnt up for one of her wonderful romances?  I love the strong women she creates and the romance.. oh the love and romance!!!  I think she has been a big influence on my writing, and I didnt even realize it until now. The books Ive read of hers didnt delve into the paranormal or supernatural, but I think those fantasy elements have been proven to work in the romance genre, and I have incorporated them in my book, Veiled Virtues, to create a unique take on modern day English knights.  Who wouldnt want a strong, sexy guy with an accent, unnaturally fast reflexes and a sixth sense about danger protecting their back? This summer, I will be working on the finishing touches to the sequel to Veiled Virtues. It is entitled Latent Legacy and you can read more about it on my website listed below!

Here is a bit about my novel, Veiled Virtues:
When Paige Stewart left America to house-sit in England, her only thoughts were to get away from her controlling mother and to have fun. Little did she know that her working holiday would find her hearing eerie voices, experiencing alarming dreams and bleeding from old scars. Although Paige's differences confuse and disgust her, she opens up to the shopkeeper of a strange metaphysical store in town, where she finds much more than tarot cards and crystals. Soon, Paige is stalked like prized game. Relentlessly pursued, her holiday takes a turn for the eerie and dangerous. Her only saving grace may be a modern-day English knight who sweeps her off her feet and recognizes the true virtues the American teen unknowingly possesses.

Veiled Virtues is available at the following sites:  Amazon  OmniLit   Smashwords   MuseItUp Publishing   Diesel   Kobo    BookStrand   AmazonUK 

Coming soon to Barnes & Noble and iTunes!!!

  1. I couldn't read most of the text in this and other posts. What I thought were wide black spaces do have writing in them, but you have to highlight the area to read the text.

    Black on black is not a good idea for a blog format. Or is it just my browser?

  2. Kate fixed the oops regarding the text... Thanks for having me on today Kate! I'm still in love with your covers! : ) Jan Fischer Wade
