Countdown for TRIAL OF A WARRIOR and #Walmart Surprise

FOUR weeks from today, Trial of a Warrior enters into the world. Is your calendar marked for Wednesday, December 12th? Have you pre-ordered your digital copy yet? This is my tenth book, and I'm delighted to be sharing this story at a festive time of year. I'm definitely having a facebook party, but decided to combine my virtual book tour and party together. I was happy to find out that the facebook party is the same day as the release of my book! It's an all day event from 10:00am to 11:00pm EST. Lots of wonderful authors, games, prizes, and oodles of fun.

My time is between 8-9pm.


Sneak preview from Trial of a Warrior ~

Taking the end of her braid, Liam wove the soft hair around his finger. Black as ebony, the lock glistened in the soft glow of the fire. She’d tempted him beyond reason. Once, he thought there might have been a destiny, but her words of rejection slammed the door on any possibility. If she had no desire to claim him, why did Abela come to his initiation?

“Why witness my ceremony?” He let out a frustrated breath and brought the braid to his lips.

“Because I never said goodbye,” she uttered softly. Lifting her head, her eyes sought his and her cheeks colored from the heat of his gaze.

Liam was unable to look away from her beauty. “No. I recall harsh words and tears.”

“We were young—naïve.”

“Stubborn and set on a path of adventure,” he added.

“But our roads have led us to this fork, so to speak.”

Liam cupped her chin. “Was it destined?” He felt her tremble from his touch.

“I am not a seer,” she replied, darting her tongue out along her bottom lip.

His mind screamed at him to move away. She was a princess—a priestess. But the temptation to taste her lips once more seeped into his being. Liam bent his head and placed a feather-like kiss on the corner of her mouth.

A small breathless whisper escaped her lips, “More.”

Her invitation sparked a desire that had remained sealed. Cupping the back of her head, he continued to kiss her tenderly on the eyes, nose, and forehead. As he shifted his position, Liam brought his arms around her and dared to feast on something that was forbidden. If death was his future, he wanted one more kiss to take with him.
