I am so excited!
It seems like ages since I first approached some of my favourite authors and asked them to write me a trilogy of interconnected novellas that were magical and romantic, but now the first results of that email are hitting the shelves!
It’s available now!
The first of a trio of trilogies by three amazing romance writers. These stories all have two things in common: magic and romance!
“When Demigods Court Death” by Wendy Sparrow:
As the demigod of fertility, Aster Slone has a thriving doctor’s practice. In fact, the incidence of triplets has made it too thriving. He needs more time with his neighbor the demigoddess of death to dampen his powers. Chandra Linton being gorgeous and sweet makes his task less of a hardship. Hitting the zenith of heretofore-unknown powers without enough exposure to her match is killing Chandra. Accepting all that her crazy, but hot neighbor says is her destiny…well, it muddles her convictions, but her real concern is: does Aster want Chandra because she’s the woman he desires or because she’s Death?
“These Roots Run Deep” by Em Shotwell:
Spitfire, New Orleans weather girl, Cheyanne Murphey has everything, and that is exactly how she likes it. When she discovers evidence of her fiancé’s philandering, she refuses to let her perfectly cultivated image fall to pieces. Cheyanne has worked too hard, dragging herself up from the trailer park into New Orleans’ society, to give in without a fight…even if that means trading a year of her life in exchange for a love incantation from her ancestor’s spell book.
A skyclad, moonlit dance, a mysterious potion, and magic gone awry leave Cheyanne with a very peculiar life lesson: love can take on many forms, so be careful what you wish for.
“Destiny’s Dark Light — Part One” by Sara Dobie Bauer:
In modern day Charleston, lonely white witch Cyan Burroughs has waited her whole life to lead the battle against dark witches and eventually meet the man she is fated to love. A tragic trolley accident brings Liam Cody into her life. He is her destiny, but he’s also in love with someone else. Now, Cyan and her magic family must find the dark witch who caused the accident while Cyan fights her feelings for Liam—a charming Irishman with secrets of his own.
If you are familiar with the work of any of these ladies you’ll have some idea of what to expect. Wendy is writing about powerful demigods who are grappling with very mortal things (like love) alongside things like the possibility of dying horribly if they don’t find their mate, Em is writing about complex relationships, and sisters, and intentions and Sara is taking us to Charleston where Cyan, who is both an ‘Every Girl’ and incredibly unique is about to have her life turned upside down.
Each one of these stories is incredibly different from the others, but somehow this collection still works, and I think you’re going to be enchanted! 😉
