It is with great pleasure that I reveal the cover of my first book with Pan Macmillan’s Momentum line: The Lord and the Mermaid.
Set in the same fantasy world as Princess Avenger and The Lady’s Choice, The Lord and the Mermaid introduces to readers a brand new hero and heroine, mermaid Merielle and Lord Nikolas Cosara.
Fans of C.L. Wilson will love this fantasy romance about two lovers from different worlds who will break the laws of land and sea in their quest to be together.
Mermaid Merielle has fled the sea, disgusted at the actions of her people and desperate to build a life for herself on land. But to truly live as a woman, she must find a human man to fall in love with her.
Lord Nikolas Cosara has lost his brother at sea, and is driven to discover whether his sibling has died at the dangerously seductive hands of a mermaid. But when Nik finds Merielle washed up on the beach, he reluctantly saves her. Despite his antipathy for her kind, Nik is drawn to Meri, who is slowly working her way into his damaged heart.
Can Nik surrender to his love for Meri before her hopes of a human life are lost forever? Or will a devastating secret bring all her efforts to naught?
The Lord and the Mermaid is due for release in June 2015.
Yes, you heard it here first! The avenging princess Alecia is back and looking better than ever. After much thought, I decided to self publish my first two titles, previously published with Penguin Australia: Princess Avenger and The Lady’s Choice. Both have new covers and will be available from all good ebook retailers.
Added to that news, I have plans to complete the trilogy begun with Princess Avenger:
Book 2 of the Brightcastle Saga is Princess in Exile– already written and in the editing process.
Book 3 of the Brightcastle Saga is The Queen Returns
The covers of these two books I will hold close to my chest until closer to their release dates.
Also remembering that this year sees the release of my two Momentum Australia titles: The Lord and the Mermaid and Love Alliance. You can read an outline of these stories on my Coming Soon page.
Next week, the cover reveal of The Lord and the Mermaid is planned so watch this space! It’s release date is June 2015.
I know things have been a little quiet lately on this blog but this was worth waiting for. After a year of not knowing what the future would hold for my writing, I’m pleased to announce that this week I have signed a two book deal with Momentum, Pan Macmillan’s Australian Digital First Romance Imprint.
The genre is of course fantasy romance and I’ll be continuing my series begun with Princess Avenger and The Lady’s Choice with Destiny Romance. This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for me and I hope to bring you further good news in the near future. Both books will be released in 2015.
In Love Thy Enemy, my heroine is a mermaid yearning for a human to love; my hero a dread-locked sailing captain desperate to find his brother, lost at sea. It’s a redemption story involving Nikolas Cosara, a sailor with tragedy in his past, and Merielle, a mermaid who has fled her people, determined to find a man who will love her. For Nik, it’s hate at first sight but Merielle instantly recognises this damaged man needs help. Merielle must somehow overcome the antipathy he feels but the devastating secret she holds might bring all her efforts to naught.
Love Alliance begins with the dark elven menace threatening the kingdom. Captain Kain Jazara must juggle the demands of a strife-torn city and kingdom while rescuing the family of the irritating Lady Alique Zorba. Readers will remember Alique as the younger sister of Ramón Zorba from The Lady’s Choice. As they are thrown together, the two develop feelings for each other. When Kain’s world is torn apart by a personal revelation he shuts Alique out. Can he overcome the accident of his birth or will he allow it to destroy his relationship and his happiness?
I can’t wait to bring my readers more from my world of fantasy romance.
