Posts Tagged ‘Sultonna Nadine’

Who else is glad the election is over here in the USA? I’ve never been so tired of the season in my life. All the phone calls, the text messages, posts on social media…

So after you take a breather from all of that, what are your plans for the month?

I have to finish Lady Calloway and get a couple other books edited and ready to the professional editing so I can get another book out to you soon. And I want to get another book out from Sultonna Nadine, too.

All this with the holiday season ready to kick off.

What are you reading these days?

If you’re looking for something in the PNR, fantasy genre, check out my Amazon Author Page. I have two series started under the name Mellie Miller.

For Master of the Fleet, look under Sultonna Nadine. I use this name for my stand alones.

So grab a cup of something delightful, take a few minutes to catch your breath and get ready for the holidays!

It’s that time of year to curl up by the fire with a good book and something to drink and slip into another world for a while.

So what world will you be visiting?

MASTER OF THE FLEET is FREE this weekend at Smashwords!

Set in an alternate world where magic is just part of everyday life, Richard is Master of the Fleet for the family shipping firm. With his ability as a weather-shaper to control wind and water, he helps keep his ships safe out on the open seas.

But it will take more than magic to sort out his love life.

Go on over to Smashwords and pick up a copy of Master of the Fleet, and have a wonderfully cozy weekend.

EXCERPT

“After the events of the evening, I will allow this to stand under one condition.”

“And what is the condition, Your Excellency?” Richard was careful to keep his tone respectful.

“An oath which will keep her safe and make you her protector,” the baron replied. “Draw your dagger.”

Richard did as commanded, as the baron circled the table.

“Make a small cut on your hand and on the woman’s.”

“A blood oath, Your Excellency?”

“You question me?”

“No, Your Excellency.”

With the tip of the dagger, Richard made a nick in his hand, and its twin in Anne-Marie’s. Droplets of blood beaded up in their palms.

“Clasp hands,” the baron instructed them.

Over their joined hands, the baron traced arcane symbols in the air. Tingling magic swirled around their hands to bind the oath.

“By the mingling of your blood, do you, Anne-Marie, swear absolute loyalty and obedience to Lord Sir Richard LeMarnier, on pain of death, for as long as you shall live?”

 She was crying and shaking so hard Richard wasn’t sure how she was still upright.

“I do so swear,” she replied through the tears.

“And Lord Sir Richard LeMarnier, do you swear to spare her life and guard her, as her sworn protector, for as long as she lives?”

“I do so swear.”

“You will remain together, blood-bound, for as long as the oath shall stand, neither one leaving the other, nor causing harm, one to the other. Breaking the conditions set forth will bring forth the penalty. The oath can be revoked before death by the skills of a baron only. Take heed.”

He motioned for someone to bring a moist towel so they could clean their hands.

 Clearing his throat, Richard said, “If you will send someone for a priest, Your Excellency, I will take this woman as my wife tonight.”

His Grace looked startled and asked, “What priest will marry you under the circumstances?”

“I think he would rather we be married than not,” Lord Richard replied. “I doubt if Anne-Marie will object. Priest or not, she will be mine this evening. Wife or whore, I care not which. Either way, she will please me well. Her life is mine to use as I see fit. If it matters to you, fetch a priest.”

“It’s your life. So be it.”

I know I do. And I’ll bet you do, too. With the whole Covid thing this year, I know people don’t have a lot of extra cash to throw around.

Which is why I started having one of my books for FREE each weekend. This weekend it is The Russian, Book 3 in the Gambler’s Folly Series.

So, who is The Russian?

Meet Dmitri ivanovich Volkov. Over 500 years old, this wolf shifter doesn’t want a mate. He’d had a soulmate two centuries ago and when she’d died,she’d taken his heart to the grave with her.

Danni isn’t looking for a relationship either. She has her work and her mother to take care of. There is no time for dating.

But Mother Nature has other plans for the two of them on Gambler’s Folly.

And it FREE at Smashwords this weekend.

You can check out the rest of the series while you’re there, or look up the other series and my stand alone under the name Sultonna Nadine. Click on this link to go to my profile page.

Wishing you all the best and happy reading!

My favorite season of the year. The turning leaves, wood fires in the fireplace, a nice cuppa and a good book… I love the cooler evenings, with the windows open and the breezes whisking cool, clean air through the house.

What do you like about autumn?

And good books… Have you read the books in my series or my stand alone under the name Sultonna Nadine? All are available at Amazon or Smashwords!

GAMBLER’S FOLLY takes place on a futuristic pleasure world featuring shape shifters and their mates. Book 1, Gambler’s Folly introduces the setting and general tone of the series. There are currently 3 books in the series, with more to come.

ESPERANCE is more of a frontier world, a world lost to Earth and left to fend for itself. Ruled by First Lords with vast psychic abilities, you’ll discover that Talent can be found in many of the inhabitants of this world in just as many forms. Book 1 introduces Jareth and Viviane, their trials and troubles, and brings in the idea of Talents. Tere are three books in this series also, with more in the offing.

MASTER OF THE FLEET is a stand alone under the pen name Sultonna Nadine. The Cote d’Or exists in an alternate universe on the west coast of what we know as the United States. In this world, magic is part of every day life. Richard Lemarnier controls wind and water, but his love life oculd use a little magic. Can he win his lady’s heart?

Watch for more books from Sultonna!

. Enjoy the cooler autumn weather and watch for more books later in the year.

Happy autumn everyone!

Yes, it’s that time of year–the hottest and driest time around here. And heading into my favorite time of year. Autumn.

I know a lot of people hate it because everything is dying back, but I love the change in colors, the change in the air, and the gentle scent of drying grass and leaves. The brilliant yellows and oranges covering the ground in a mosaic of color always amazes me.

And with the change in seasons, with less to do outside, there’s more time to read!

With that in mind, now that the Smashwords sale has finished, I’ll be putting one of my books on sale for $0.99 at Smashwords each weekend. That way you don’t have to spend a lot for something to read.

No, I haven’t quit writing… But the editing takes time. And I have two series and a stand alone line to keep going.

I have a new book with the editor right now under the Sultonna Nadine name titled Mistaken Identity. It is a romantic intrigue set in a star system with two inhabited worlds on the brink of war. And it appears their best shot at gaining the intel to avert catastrophe lies with a troublesome female prisoner Commander Romaoff is holding in his prison on Novay Kemlya.

In the Gambler’s Folly series, I’m working on the editing for Book 4–Old Flame. Kort and Liz met at university. While they were good friends, they never actually dated. Since then, they’ve both pretty much given up on love. But thirty years after university, they meet by chance, on their way to Gambler’s Folly.

From Esperance we have Talents, Book 4 in the series. This continues Viviane’s story from Book 2. She is still struggling to control her Talents, with limited success. After the commotion she caused at her brother’s trial, she is afraid of her Talents and wishes they would go away. Hence her troubles. On top of everything else, her Talents and Jareth’s will prevent pregnancy until she has a handle on her abilities, and no amount of wishing will help.

At the same time, her nephew, Connell is having troubles of his own with Talent. Only his problem is mainly getting them reawakened to the point where he can train to rule the clan in his grandfather’s stead. But at eleven years old, it’s a pretty heavy load.

And then there is Whiskey Jug Genie, which is a fun little story I’ll probably publish as Sultonna Nadine. A London apothecary shop owner and herbalist, Martin, tours the American Southeast and buys an old whiskey jug to display in his shop. But when he pulls the stopper in his apartment, a genie–or djinn as he prefers to be called–who has been trapped in the jug for a couple centuries comes out to completely disrupt his life. A redneck genie with a unique manner of speaking who is completely out of touch with the modern world.

So wish me luck on my editing and wish my editor patience and perseverance. We;ll be back to you with new reads as soon as we can.

Wishing you a pleasant weekend and splendid summer.
