Genre Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Guardian angel Leyna Angelheardt travels the world trying to guide children to their brighter futures. However, free will rules the human spirit, and after she loses three charges, her heart needs healing before she can continue her calling. Directed toward the magically protected town of Willows Haven, she faces her greatest challenge.
Vithar Woodward runs the small town newspaper with his twin brother. But his family harbors a dark secret: a century ago, an incubus cursed them to spend their days shapeshifted into animals. Now with only a few days until the curse culminates, Vithar knows his only hope is to find true love and nullify the curse. Yet he wonders who would ever love a man who spends half his days as a barred owl.
When Leyna and Vithar meet, it becomes clear that fate has drawn them together. As sparks dart between them, Leyna must decide if she should remain a guardian angel or embrace this new existence of loving a mortal.
For after all, what is more magical than true love?
Why did you write this book?
This is the second story in my Willows Haven series which is a part of the Zodiac Shifters author collective. I choose to use Gemini for my character inspiration because both my husband and mother have early June birthdays. The curse for this story was inspired by Ladyhawke. It’s a great fantasy movie but I never liked that there was no end-date to the hero and heroine’s affliction. So in my version, the curse continues for 101 years and my hero and his twin are the ones who transform into a wolf and an owl.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Epic Fantasy. Different worlds, heroic quests, magic and political intrigue. But Dark Fantasy and Paranormal Romance are favorites too with a few Urban Fantasy books for variety.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Daemon from Anne Bishop’s Black Jewel series. He’s deadly but elegant with a soft heart unless you cross him.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m currently working on a Bonus Epilogue for Healer’s Fate (the first in my Paranormals of Arilase series) to give to my newsletter subscribers. Next week, I hope to start plotting the third and final book in my Willows Haven series.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
My next release won’t be until the end of December which will be the third book in my Willows Haven series. I’ll have completed two trilogies and be ready to work on brand new series. I haven’t decided what the next series will be – I have at least 4 active ideas and several other possibilities.
Thank you for having me today. I hope everyone has wonderful day.
