Book 5 in the Love Mark Series
Final Book in the Series

GENRE:

Fantasy Romance

POINT OF VIEW:

Dual 1st Person POV from both hero and heroine.

WHO THE STORY IS ABOUT:

This is Inez and King Xavier's story.

WHAT THE STORY IS ABOUT:

The plan is for both Inez and Xavier to meet up in Lowden in book 4 (And for readers to meet them then as well) when Unity goes there with Inez. Inez is only a servant, though, and Xavier is the king of a realm that doesn't really do the whole love-mark thing, so it isn't as if she can just stroll up to the guy and tell him, "Hey, nice to meet you. We belong together."

So Inez stays behind when Unity returns home to High Cliff, and she gets work in the palace, helping to take care of the widowed king's motherless child. But when Xavier calls for a woman to his room one night because he's lonely, Inez thinks, "Nope. Not going to happen. No one is getting their hands on MY man but me." So she poses as a lady of the night and makes sure she gets chosen for the task of attending to the king's needs for the evening. Interesting scene to follow which hopefully lands her another job in the castle as the king's paramour.

She's determined to juggle both her duties until the king is stabbed in the back--literally--at which time she's forced to help save him along with the entire kingdom of Lowden.

*Idea not totally fleshed out yet, but that's the gist of it, I believe!*

POINT OF VIEW:

WHO THE STORY IS ABOUT:

Danielle Ferguson & Jace Fently.

WHAT THE STORY IS ABOUT:

A hate-to-love romance.

Danielle Ferguson has her nice, quiet life in her nice, quiet house on her nice, quiet street until new neighbors move in next door. Sadly, single dad, Jace Fently, is anything but nice and quiet. He's always using loud, annoying machinery/tools/whatever you want to call them at all hours of the day and night. His yard is a mess and spilling over into hers. He has friends and family over constantly, hanging out in his backyard, making it impossible for her to hang out in her OWN backyard. And his kid...oh, don't even get her started on that little monster who ruins her flowers, draws really lame chalk pictures all over her driveway, and always bugs her with the stupidest questions on earth whenever she's doing yard work. Seriously, she can't believe her husband left her because her lady plumbing broke and she couldn't provide him with one of these vile spawns of Satan. She just wants sloppy Jace--who's totally not sexy, especially when he's all gross and sweaty in his yard, using power tools with his shirt off and flashing his completely ridiculous six pack all over the place--AND his toothless offspring to leave her alone. It hurts way too damn much to hope for a life she could only dream of having with them.

WHAT THE STORY IS ABOUT:

I knew Lily was different the moment she stepped into our school. It just took me a while to figure out why she was so different.

You know those freaky stories you see on the news where these women have been found years after being kidnapped, and they'd been held captive so long they actually had children with their sick abductors? Horrifying, right? Well, this isn't one of those stories. This is what came after. This is about one of those children, and how she tried to assimilate into society after living her entire life in a basement.

I thought I could be her hero and help her fit into the real world. I had no idea she would help me see how the world really was.

Standalone

GENRE:

Contemporary Adult Romance

POINT OF VIEW:

Dual 1st-Person POV from Hero and Heroine.

WHO THE STORY IS ABOUT:

Xylia Olson & Harper Bryant.

WHAT THE STORY IS ABOUT:

I must miss writing about male prostitutes, because I got a new story idea for another one. (And yes, this one's a lot like Mason's story...I just can't help it...why does my brain keep going there?)

She's a lonely widowed school teacher (probably in her thirties). He just got custody of his 12-year-old brother after their parents died in a car accident, and "he needs the money."

She hires an escort for the night but then starts to get cold feet, only to overhear him on the phone with his "kid" as he's approaching the hotel room where they're supposed to meet, telling the boy to sniff test the milk before drinking it and that grandma is probably still alive. "Just put a mirror under her nose to make sure."

Anyway, he hangs up the phone because he's late (I think he's going to be the always-late type), only to look up and see her there at the opened doorway, purse over her shoulder and ready to leave. She cancels the appointment. He's crestfallen: he hates disappointing people...and he really needed that money. She offers him some cash for taking up his time, because she's a bleeding heart. He tries to refuse, but she forces it on him, saying, "Just get your kid some milk, okay?"

A week or more later, he gets a call from his brother's teacher. She's worried about the kid's emotional state after his parents' death and how his schoolwork is suffering, and Harper kind of unloads on her about his own stress and how he feels as if he's failing his brother while he's trying to deal with having custody of him AND make a new life for him AND afford funeral expenses AND do his own grieving. She feels bad and schedules a face-to-face to help him come up with a plan to get him through both brothers' problems. So they finally meet in person, only to realize he was the escort she'd ordered but then bailed on.

Talk about awk...ward.

What piques her interest most, however, isn't the Babbitt family secrets but the reclusive cemetery groundskeeper. Everyone calls him Creeper, not just because of his name (C. Reeper) but because he's different. After being conceived through rape, everyone thinks he comes from bad blood and will turn out rotten too, especially his mother he takes care of. What's even more startling is the fact that Andee has caught him watching her more than once.

Strangely enough, she's not freaked out by it, because she's just as fascinated by him as he seems to be by her.

So she calls Kennedy for help because Kennedy owes her one and she isn't ready to reveal the truth yet to her brother yet.

"Just distract him long enough for me to escape without him seeing me," she begs Kennedy. Kennedy wants no part of the plan, but she really does owe her roommate one, so she relucantly agrees.

Except Dominic is harder to distract that she originally thought he'd be. She ends up going big and dramatic and kissing him to get him to focus on her, but then that ends up with a little too much of his attention. And now she has to deal with a whole new problem of trying to shake the guy loose, only to discover... maybe she doesn't want to shake him loose after all.

WHO THE STORY IS ABOUT:

Quilla Graykey and Indigo Moast.

WHAT THE STORY IS ABOUT:

Indigo is a soldier who came from High Cliff to Donnelly with Urban and Allera in book 1. He gets assigned to be Nicolette's personal bodyguard. And when Nicolette goes missing from the Iron Castle in book 2, Indigo tracks her down...to the kingdom of Blair maybe (haven't quite worked out that detail yet) where his mark starts telling him his one true love is near.

Quilla Graykey is quite possibly the last left in her entire clan. After a curse forces everyone in her family to be born with dark magic in them, one of her ancestors thought it'd be fun to try to take over all the Outer Realms. For generations, they succeeded...until they were stopped and killed by the Kingdom of High Cliff. Now, Quilla is on the run for her life because anyone with her surname is marked for death. Which is ridiculous because she was able to get rid of her dark magic years ago. But convincing everyone else of that isn't so easy, so it's better just to hide, until a High Cliff soldier finds her. Except this dude wants to marry her, not turn her in. What's a girl to do?

Oh, and there's also the fact that she's still cursed. If she ever has a child, it'll be born with dark magic too...unless she finally learns how to break a sixty-year-old family curse.

(New cover made Feb 2019)

GENRE:

Contemporary Young-Adult Romance

POINT OF VIEW:

Dual 1st-Person POV from both Hero and Heroine.

WHO THE STORY IS ABOUT:

Spencer Royce & Peyton Kinsey.

WHAT THE STORY IS ABOUT:

Peyton's mom and my mom were best friends.

You'd think that should explain everything. But, no...not even close.

Mom and Aunt Wanda (as I'd always called Peyton's mom) were not simply just close; I'm talking they were the same person inhabiting two different bodies. They grew up next door to each other, sat out of gym class together when one was sick, were arrested for keying some jerk's car together when they were teens, then they went to college and lived in the same dorm room. They met their respective husbands (Peyton's and my dads) on the same night and got married within a year of each other, only to find houses on the same block, and get pregnant with their first babies three months apart. Those first babies being, yeah, me and Peyton.

They even coordinated our names to go together. At first, they decided Peyton would take my last name for her first name and I'd take her last name as my first, so we'd be Royce Kinsey and Kinsey Royce. But then, our mothers realized that wouldn't work because they had already planned before we were even born that we'd get married someday. At which point it'd sound really strange for Peyton to go from Kinsey Royce to taking my surname and becoming Kinsey Kinsey. Yes, our moms thought it through that far. So...they used their maiden names instead for our first and middle names and flip-flopped those, dubbing us Spencer Peyton Kinsey and Peyton Spencer Royce.

I'm not sure how they decided which of us would be Peyton and which would be Spencer, but I kind of didn't care either, because since the moment she was born, Peyton Royce had been forced on me, and I've hated it.

You think I exaggerate? Hmph. I wish.

We shared a crib together, took our first steps together (but only because Peyton was a little overachiever who just had to start walking at nine months to my twelve months), took baths together, we had our first day of school picture taken together, we even got braces in middle school together.

Honestly, there wasn't a single memory from my childhood where Peyton wasn't right there beside me, experiencing it too. It was always, let Peyton play with you, give half your candy to Peyton, don't let Peyton sit alone at lunch, drive Peyton to school, be nice to Peyton. Peyton, Peyton, Peyton.

We were treated like twins, yet always expected to fall in love one day and get married. The only problem with that was I didn't love Peyton. And I'm positive she didn't even like me in return.

We were complete opposites, except no, we were even further apart than that. We couldn't be compared to night and day because those were still measurements of time, connecting them. There was no connection between Peyton and me. We were more like night and...and banana. We had absolutely nothing in common, except that our mothers were two of the most irritatingly pushy, intrusive people on the planet.

Don't get me wrong. I adored our moms--swear to God--but they had to let this stupid notion go, because one thing had become abundantly clear to me over the years. I would never marry Peyton Royce. I think it was my one goal in life, actually.

So, sorry, Mom and Aunt Wanda, but you two just weren't going to get your way on this.

Someday they'd be forced stop grinning like they knew something we didn't, and they'd quit spouting, never say never, to us because I just did.

Gauntlet dropped.

Peyton and I? It was never gonna happen.

WHAT THE STORY IS ABOUT:

Prince Olivander met his one true love when he was a teenager, and she was barely a week old. Lady Unity, the daughter to one of King Ignatius's dignitaries, always knew Olivander was special. He was like a favorite uncle who spoiled her rotten and spent hours playing with her when she was a child. He always had time for her. But then one day, she's sent away from home, away from everything she knows and everyone she loves, to a school where she knows no one. When she learns Olivander of all people was the one who had her sent away, she decides she hates him. Except it hurts to hate him. But she's determined to hate him regardless.

But never fear, Vander hates himself just as much. Unity was his favorite person on earth too. Then, one day, he noticed something. She was growing up...Hell, she'd started to get breasts. And he promptly freaks out. He'd never thought of her that way before and can't even imagine thinking of her that way in the future, but he knows one day, he might...or at least, he probably should since they were one true loves. But she's like a little sister to him. Hoping some (as in A LOT of) time and space away from her would help him deal with their transition from sibling-like affection into lovers, he has her sent away.

He keeps up with correspondence to her every day, even after Unity decides to hate him and never talks to him again. He continues to write, even though every letter is returned.

Enough times passes that she reaches an acceptable age for marriage and she graduates from her school, but Vander still never calls Unity home. Frankly, he's scared. What if he sees her again and feels lust, but then is immediately filled with self-disgust for wanting such a younger woman that was once a sister to him? Or what if he sees her again and feels no lust at all...and he's doomed to never feel true lust?

He puts off fetching her home so long that Unity decides to take her own life into her hands and do what SHE wants. The last emissary that was sent to the kingdom of Lowden to help them restore their realm after the Graykey family's destruction was killed. So Unity is going as the new emissary. But the job is way too dangerous for Vander's comfort. He races after her to finally bring her home, and I believe that is where the real story will start.

It started off as nothing, just an insignificant, forgettable run-in on his college campus.

But the impression of her soft warmth bumping into him, the flyaway strands from her hair brushing past his face, the scent of her skin invading his nostrils stuck with Yale Hasting long after they went their separate ways. He can't get the shy stranger out of his head.

Soon, she's haunting his nights with vivid arousing dreams, stealing his attention from his friends, cutting into his concentration while he's supposed to be studying, and ruining him for every other woman out there. Desperate to stop craving her, he'll do anything for a quick meaningless fling to get her out of his system.

It's a good thing he's handsome, charming, witty, and a marketing major. He should be able to sell himself no problem.

There's only one small hitch in trying to convince Hope McIntyre she should let him borrow her body for a couple hours--possibly days. Her father is Yale's ticket to his future dream job.

Now that he has to keep his hands off her, he's forced to actually get to know her, and--gasp--he actually begins to like her.

Example: I hate Emma Greenson more than...well I just hate her, okay. But when I brewed a tonic to turn her beautiful golden locks into the color and consistency of broom bristles, I flubbed the whole thing up. Who knew half an extra mushroom would transform my bad-hair revenge into a love potion? And now my hot boy crush is crazy about HER while I'm still the lamest witch this side of the cafeteria.

Just when I swore to myself I would never again attempt another potion, the boy of my dreams--literally--explodes into my life--again, literally--and needs MY help to save the world. Is this my chance to finally prove I'm not a complete failure, or is all humanity doomed under my spell? But more importantly, will I get my first kiss before I turn sixteen or die an old maid like my two strange, old aunts?
