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.”

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!

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–

—to Share the Romance…

One of my other books is also on sale–Master of the Fleet–which is written under the pen name Sultonna Nadine.

Not part of either series, Master of the Fleet is set in an alternate timeline of the American Northwest, a time a place where the French had a much stronger presence, and the continent was divided into kingdoms, rather than states.

Elemental magic is accepted as the norm, and Richard, our male protagonist, is a weather-shaper, the master of the fleet for his family’s shipping firm. Having control over wind and water, he helps provide safe passage for his ships when the weather gets rough.

The most eligible bachelor on the coast, he meets Anne-Marie, a beautiful seamstress who has recently arrived on the Côte. After dating her for two years, he has yet to convince her to marry him. She doesn’t refuse, and yet she won’t commit either.

Because she has a secret and her own agenda which don’t include getting married.

So check out Master of the Fleet while it’s on sale between now and May 18.

Happy Mother’s Day!
