The Elf King’s Lady- 1 week to go!

0515 The Elf King's Lady_FinalExcitement is building in my world as I count down to the launch of another book. I’m so excited to be bringing you Kane and Alique’s love story in The Elf King’s Lady. Now there is only one week to go until release day.

The winner of last week’s comp was Vik who gets to choose one of my books for free!

This week, simply leave a comment on this blog to go in the draw to win one of my books. Too easy.

So get cracking and make this a big final week!

The Elf King’s Lady- Two Weeks to go!

0515 The Elf King's Lady_FinalI can’t believe it’s only two weeks until The Elf King’s Lady is released and I’m hoping for a big effort from readers for this week’s competition. Kaz won last week’s competition describing her three goals of reading fiction were escape, relaxation and hope.

Kaz wins a copy of my new release, The Elf King’s Lady.

This week, I want you to name, in two words, your favourite romance genre eg it might be fantasy romance, rural romance or many others. The winner will receive one of my books- their choice!

Until next week- getting so close now…

The Elf King’s Lady- 3 weeks to go!

0515 The Elf King's Lady_FinalLast week’s winner, Michelle, used alliteration in her entry which was very cool. I had a great response to my request: four essential traits in a heroine. I guess we get enthusiastic with our ladies as well as our men. And we had every reason to celebrate women after the Melbourne Cup this week. What a fabulous story that was.

This week I am going to ask you to come up with three words to describe why you read fiction. Mine would be: escape, enjoy, inspire. What are yours? The winner will receive one of my books.

Until next week xx

4 weeks until The Elf King’s Lady!

0515 The Elf King's Lady_FinalActually it’s less than four weeks as this is late! Last week’s winner was Pam and her favourite hero, described in five words was: Blonde tall blue eyed hero.

That is certainly one of the stereotypical heroes and a favourite with many. My favourite is more like General Kain Jazara from The Elf King’s Lady or Captain Vard Anton from Princess Avenger– tall, dark, brooding and mysterious; a man not easy to get close to but one who is loyal once he falls in love.

This week, to mark four weeks from release of The Elf King’s Lady, I want to shift the focus to the girls. Please describe in four words, your ideal heroine. The winner can select any one of my books for their very own.

Until next week…

The Elf King’s Lady- 5 Weeks to go!

0515 The Elf King's Lady_FinalLast week’s winner, Kaz, listed her version of romantic fantasy as ‘heroic alpha males supporting strong females’. I have to agree even though I’ve written a story ‘The Lady’s Choice’ with a beta hero and it’s my favourite so far.

In The Elf King’s Lady, hero Kain is definitely alpha: dark and dangerous, commander of the King’s forces, and not one to show his softer side. In Alique, he finds a woman who can match his bravery and intelligence, who won’t give into to his every demand but who, in the end, needs him to save her.

What can be more romantic than a man who stands by his woman, who will never give up on her, no matter how grim things might seem? I think readers will love these two characters, whom they met in ‘The Lord and the Mermaid’.

For this week’s competition, I want you to list five characteristics of the perfect romantic hero- alpha or beta! The winner receives one of my books, their choice!

Until next week…

The Elf King’s Lady- 6 weeks to go!

0515 The Elf King's Lady_FinalThis week, I want to take the words of last week’s competition winner and put them up in blazing lights.  If I fall, knowing I’ll be caught. How beautiful is this sentiment? Over the next six weeks, we’re going to be examining romance and what it means to us. In these words, romance becomes the safety net, the embracing arms, the person who has your back no matter what. These are the attributes we want in our life partner: the rock, the anchor, the unwavering belief that no matter what, we are there for each other. Until death do us part…

This week, I want to know, in six words, what fantasy means to you and by that I mean the fantasy genre. The winner will receive one of my books, their choice.

Until next week…
