Let the Sun Shine

It has been beautiful here for the past few days. Milder temperatures, sunshine, and lovely warm breezes sweeping through the trees and the bamboo around the house.

The type of weather that is a taste of heaven on earth.

It looks like we might be heading back for rainy weather in a day or two, though, which is fine. The tomatoes will enjoy the drink and the bath.

In the meantime, I’ve been writing a few words on Lady Calloway, to be published under Sultonna Nadine, and editing on The Trouble with Talents, the next book from Esperance.

So while I’ve doing some fiddling with these two books, I’ve been trying to figure out book covers. Always a chore. It seems no matter what I’m looking for, I can find anything else. (sigh)

Anyhow, here’s hoping you’ve had a wonderful weekend so far, and will continue the trend.

How about a brief excerpt?

Lady Calloway–

A man expects a few niceties when he gets home, and a proper kiss from his wife is one of them.”

“Why are you going on so much about a kiss? You know I love you.”

“Do I?” Kerrick asked, exasperated. “And how am I supposed to know that? Your kisses are sisterly at best, unless I press the issue. And in our bed, half the time I feel I’m committing rape. You agree to sleep with me, but show no passion for me. Can you even feel passion?”

Suddenly wanting to know if she could show anything at all, he pulled her to him roughly, one arm firmly around her waist, the other twined in her hair turning her face to his. He kissed her savagely at first, his mouth hard on hers, demanding, before his kiss became more sensual. At first she tried to struggle free, and then, for a brief moment, he felt the beginnings of awakening arousal, before she stiffened into her usual stance—endurance.

“Don’t, Kerrick,” she pleaded with him as he released her. “Please, never do that again. I can’t bear it.”

Stormy Weather

It was a dark and stormy night.

No really.

It was.

And it’s still dark and stormy today. Looks like we’re in for a whole weekend of storms and rain.

So what to do when the weather is wet and stormy, and it’s so dark outside it could be night time?

Read, of course!

What are you reading today? Have you read the books in my series?

Esperance–a highland world full of mischief, magic and romance.

Speranza–Set mostly on the futuristic world, Gambler’s Folly. Romance, intrigue, shifters.

So whatever you choose to read, remember. It’s Saturday! Time to sit back, relax, and watch the rain.

Summertime…

I believe the heat is backing off just a little. While it has been pretty warm, it hasn’t been 100 degrees out for a while.

How are things in your world?

I’m working on Lady Calloway, the next book to be published as Sultonna Nadine. Set in an alternate timeline of Victorian England, the church and state are one and the same.

Add in the fact that the church employees people with psychic abilities to seek out and destroy heresies, and “confess” sinners back to righteousness, and you’ll get the idea behind the plot.

Liora grew up in a small village. When Kerrick came through on church business, he is immediately attracted to her. Soon, they are married and living in Londre, where he works in a position between the two halves of the church–the secular and sacred sides of their world.

Three months into their marriage, they are both miserable, and Kerrick finally discovers his wife has been taught and firmly believes the heretical teachings of her priest concerning sex in marriage. As an employee of the church, it is his duty to turn her in for confession, but he can’t bring himself to do it.

Taking a short holiday to the coast, he hopes to convince her to change her beliefs, until his father contacts him and tells them to run. The church has sent confessors and wardens to bring her in. Her village is been decreed to be in heresy and will soon be crawling with confessors and wardens to root it out.

On top of the original heresy, both Liora and Kerrick have begun to develop abilities condemned by the church. If this is found out, they are both in danger.

How will this end?

I haven’t figured that bit out yet, but I’m working on it. In the meantime, Book 3 from Gambler’s Folly–The Russian— is with the editor and should be available later this summer.

Everyone have a marvelous week, and keep reading!

Heat Wave

How is everyone doing with this weather? I don’t know about you, but the temperatures here in the southeast are brutal. With the highs near 100 degrees already, I don’t even want to think about August…

So, what to do when the heat keeps you inside?

Read, of course!

A little romance, a little fantasy, and maybe a little magic along the way.

For books I’ve published as Mellie Millerhttp://bit.ly/Mellie_Am

And those under my pen name, Sultonna Nadinehttps://www.amazon.com/Sultonna-Nadine/e/B07CQSGKYZ?ref

So go inside, grab something cold to drink, kick up your feet, and settle into a lovely story. Who’s with me?

Summer is Here…

Yes, I know summer doesn’t officially begin until June 21, but let me tell you, it’s hot outside. Temperatures are up in the 90’s here and near 100 out at the coast. It is way to early for this stuff.

But, if you’re trying to escape the heat, take a seat in your favorite place, grab a book, and enjoy the AC with a nice glass of tea.

Who’s with me here?

What are you reading these days?

If you haven’t read the books in my two series, give them a try. Go on over to Amazon or Smashwords and take a peek.

Esperance is set on a highland world, ruled by First Lords with psychic abilities.

Gambler’s Folly is on a futuristic world full of shape-shifters of varying sorts.

And there is enough mischief and magic for all, along with romance, of course!

Don’t forget my stand-alone, Master of the Fleet, written under the pen name Sultonna Nadine!

So go inside, stay cool and comfortable, and take a virtual trip to a different world.

And Don’t Forget–

But Dante’s troubles haven’t even begun until he meets Damiano’s cousin, Angela. A bit on the wild side, and with quite the attitude, their initial meeting leaves them both irritated. But their second meeting in the olive grove leaves them breathless, as they try to figure out how to break the news to the family that they are soul mates.

But maybe the universe is giving him a second chance at happiness.

Danni works for The Agency in Speranza on Gambler’s Folly. Most of her time is spent working or caring for her mother. She’s been lucky up until now, but tonight she’s accosted by one of the street gangs and is sure she’ll soon be dead.

Until The Russian steps in, saves her life, and captures her soul.
