Cover Reveal: A Knight to Remember

In my continuing saga of cover reveals… I’m excited to show off the third cover for the Realm of Honor series, A Knight to Remember. I really like this book, too, as it’s Henry and Maeve’s story.

She’s the queen of the Otherworld, powerless and hunted by the Goddess of War. He’s a human masquerading as a Fae knight…and Maggie’s father (Maggie was the heroine from Book 1).

Look for pre-order links to the re-release soon!

The Goddess of War is out for Queen Maeve’s blood to satisfy a thousand-year-old vendetta. And the only one that can save her is a human masquerading as a Fae knight.

Henry Chase is desperate to find his daughter lost in the Highlands. When he steps through a stone circle, he’s transported to the Otherworld. With his human form hidden by glamour, he masquerades as a Fae knight. He’s instantly besotted by Queen Maeve and determined to break down the walls she’s erected around her heart.

In the aftermath of war, Queen Maeve’s kingdom has been destroyed. She must close the portals to the human realm and restore her lost magic. But before she can set things straight, her archenemy, the Goddess of War, attacks, seeking revenge.

When the goddess captures the queen, Henry offers his life for Maeve’s in the hope his bravery will earn the queen’s love. Discovering Henry is human and knowing she must send him back to his world, Maeve tries to fight her feelings for him. Now she must choose—life at court or life with Henry—before she loses him forever.

Decluttering Week 6

Not much to report this week on the decluttering front. I didn’t get a lot done other than kept up with the usual decluttering tasks–shredding, recycling junk mail, recycling food trash, etc.

I was busy with other tasks involving book stuff which will be another post later on. :)

At any rate, I did get some decluttering done. I got rid of old cooking oil when I changed the cat litter.

I also trimmed back the rosebushes, but I’m not sure that counts as decluttering, though it definitely needed to be done. Hopefully I didn’t kill them.

And that’s about the list for the week. I still have a long way to go to make it through the list I made but at least there is some progress going on.

So. Onward.

Cover Reveal: Only for a Knight

I’m excited to show off the second cover in my Realm of Honor series. This one is for the second book in the series, Only for a Knight. This is the story of Derron and Elyne – and probably my favorite book in the series. Mostly because we get to see Queen Maeve in action a lot and she does something at the end that carries forward into book three. Are you intrigued now? :)

I plan to re-release this one later this summer as long with the first book.

Can Elyne and Derron stop the destruction of the walls between Fae and Man before they fall?

After saving her love from certain death, Princess Elyne returns to the Otherworld by order of her mother, Queen Maeve. But it’s not the homecoming she expects. The queen is furious she has been meddling with humans and imprisons her, stripping away her magic. The only way Elyne can get her powers back is to perform one selfless act.

When Queen Maeve sends Sir Derron to find the Guardian of the ancient Sword of Light, one of the Four Treasures of the Otherworld, he can’t leave without releasing Elyne. After all, she altered time to save his life in the human world. But freeing the princess comes with a steep price—he must take her with him on this dangerous quest.

Their search becomes much more than a pursuit for the missing Guardian. Dark Elf, Lord Kieran, rises to dominate the Unseelie court. He will stop at nothing to gain control of both the Otherworld and the human realm—he’s murdering Guardians and stealing the sacred Treasures of the Fae. Even with the help of Elves, dragons, and their human friends, the odds are stacked against Derron and Elyne.

Can they stop Lord Kieran before he slays the queen and tears down the walls of the Otherworld?

Decluttering Week 4 & 5

Okay, okay. So I’ve been remiss in posting my decluttering post. But I have been working on getting rid of the garbage in the house. I got most of the master bathroom organized but I still have a ways to go. I had stuff that was going to be donated stacked up around the house. This weekend, I got a large bag and started putting everything in there for donations. So that’s done.

And what else have I been doing? Working mostly and trying to keep the house clean(er). Part of my decluttering plan is to at least TRY to be a better housekeeper. I’ve been vacuuming and sweeping the floors every week. It’s really hard to keep up with the mess. And every time I cook dinner, I make a mess in the kitchen. Last week, I spilled flour all over the floor. Go me.

I abandoned by decluttering plan to finish cross-stitching one of my projects. I got obsessed with it and wanted to get it finished and see the final product. I love making those small projects. They are so fun! And to see what it was, you can check out the Plotting Princess blog where I talk about it.

And now for a cover reveal

As an author, there is nothing more thrilling than getting cover art. Well, except for maybe seeing your book in print with your name across the cover for the first time. That’s pretty darn special too.

But cover art is what makes the book, in my mind. You want something eye-catching and attention-grabbing and, let’s face it, NOT ugly. I’ve been lucky not have anything hurl-worthy. But I’ve had some covers that were just meh.

At any rate, today I’m doing a cover reveal for my first book in the Realm of Honor series, ONE KNIGHT ONLY. This was originally released with a publisher but now I have the good fortunate to have my rights back and the ability to release it with a new cover.

I love this story. It’s set during a jousting tournament in the Middle Ages with a sexy Scottish laird fighting for his reputation and his land. To me, this cover captures the essence of the book. Plus Finn is just so hot. :)

I particularly like the Realm of Honor badge showcasing the series title.

In case you missed it the first time around, here’s the blurb:

A snarky Faery princess, a Scottish knight with a gambling problem, and a murderous earl all add up to one thing: Trouble. Maggie’s medieval education never prepared her for life in the Middle Ages!

Do-gooder Maggie Chase throws her thesis out the window when she wakes up in the arms of a hot Scottish knight. When she realizes she’s somehow ended up back in time, she embraces the persona of Lady Margaret. But she may be in over her head when she realizes she has to keep the sexy knight alive during a jousting tournament in order to get back to her own time.

Sir Finian “Finn” McCullough is a gambling man and owes a very large debt to an evil earl who is after his family estate. When the beautiful and outgoing Maggie arrives in his bed, he can’t remember tupping her the night before and thinks she’s a spy for one of his neighboring clans. He intends to find her kinsman and return her safely but he can’t resist her charms, her smart mouth or her sex appeal. Instead he keeps her close, taking her with him to an important jousting tournament—one he has to win or lose his castle forever.
