Darke Passion release day!!

They’re here! The Darke sisters have arrived.

It’s finally the release day for Darke Passion, Darke Paranormal Investigations 1, and I’m thrilled to see this book out there in the world. Over the last few months, I’ve shared some of the inspiration behind this story, and I hope it has piqued your interest.

If you have read an advance copy, please consider posting an honest review wherever you normally would. Reviews on Amazon, Bookbub and Goodreads are definitely appreciated! Thank you.

Ghosts can’ t hurt the living? The Darke sisters know otherwise.

Edwina Darke is one of a trio of ghost-hunting sisters who rid clients of their unwanted supernatural visitors. A badass by nature, Edwina doesn’ t run from haunted houses— she runs into them. Yet no matter how many “ ghosts” she debunks, she remains troubled by a demon from her own past.

Simon Teal is the co-owner of a historic B&B in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, a town famous for its connection to the 1812 War. Simon doesn’ t believe in the spirit world, but something is chasing his customers away, so he reluctantly allows the Darke sisters to investigate.

As the team uncovers the star-crossed love behind the B&B haunting, Edwina and Simon’ s attraction flares. It’ s the last thing either of them needs. The dedicated Edwina refuses to lose herself in another relationship, and Simon is still reeling from a terrible betrayal.

When a darker presence reveals itself, triggering their protective instincts, Edwina and Simon succumb to temptation. But the evil entity has taken an interest in them, and if they don’ t solve the mystery, someone new could end up going “ into the light.”

And it could be one of them.

Did I see the ghost of Lady Sophia?

Friends, I recently had the opportunity to stay the night at beautiful Brockamour Manor in historic Niagara-on-the-Lake! As you may have already read, the intriguing history behind this gorgeous property was the inspiration behind my setting in Darke Passion, Darke Paranormal Investigations 1.

General Isaac Brock himself has a connection to the home, and a portrait of the handsome officer hangs in the billiards room. It is said that the Lady Sophia Shaw, a resident of the home, was secretly engaged to General Brock during the War of 1812. Apparently, he stopped here to visit with Sophia one last time before riding off to the Battle of Queenston Heights, a battle that claimed his life.
Sophia mourned him for the rest of her life.

My husband and I were really excited to stay in the Lady Sophia room at Brockamour, a place named for this star-crossed romance. Local ghost tour operators will talk about “Sobbing Sophia,” the mournful wraith of Brock’s lost love. I’ll be honest, I was a little nervous to sleep there. However, I can honestly say the atmosphere is a peaceful one, and if Lady Sophia does linger there, I don’t think she’s sad anymore. I would like to believe she and the charismatic officer finally met again in the hereafter, and that they are no longer tied to her former home.

Wicked Grace by @lunajoyawriter!

Huge congrats to my pal Luna Joya on the release of Wicked Grace! I’m so excited to share an excerpt with you today.

He’s a grumpy demon prince. She’s a sunshine magical orphan who’s his fated mate and forbidden. But can he survive rejecting her?
Demon prince Alexei is ruthless in business and deadly in battle. The mafia boss will do anything to protect his family, even consider an arranged marriage with a royal he doesn’t love.
There’s just one problem.
When the grumpy hero rescues a sunshine princess locked away in a tower, he knows she’s his fated mate. She also seems to be a freakin’ forbidden angel. Like the villain he is, Alexei rejects her without saying why.
Despite her tortuous childhood, Jolene is determined to find her real family and win her grumpy prince. Come on—the man has wings! But loving her antihero makes him a target of her human enemies who are out to destroy all supernaturals.
These two opposites attract in all the wicked ways. But when supernatural children in Alexei’s hometown start disappearing, the two must work together, and Jolene will have to reveal that her sunshine-and-sparkles magic isn’t what it seems. Can they find their happily ever after or will their differences and enemies destroy them both?

​A smile spread over her mouth, curving the edges into a slice of sunshine. Something twisted in Alexei’s gut, a strange need to keep her smiling.
His mother’s voice echoed in his head, her warning when he’d signed the contract to marry Yulia Sidorich, the most beautiful and coldest of demon princesses, for the good of his kingdom. Once our demon side recognizes the person we’re meant to be with at first sight, and that’s it. You’ll want nothing more than to make your mate happy, to protect her, to care for her. There’s no fighting the call.
But destiny would’ve chosen a mate closer to his own age, someone else a couple of years from college and beginning their adult life— not some kid, right? Except his father had over a decade on his mother.
“Thank you,” the girl said in English, pure and clear, a tinkling bell against the background of honking horns and a street musician’s haunting violin. Her voice soothed his magic, took the fire out of his rage. She tipped her head, taking him in with those innocent eyes. “They were scared of you. Why?”
