Blurb:
When a single moment challenges your perception of truth…
Epigraphist Dr. Essie DeSpencer, travels to an ancient Welsh castle in order to decipher an Ogham inscription discovered by the handsome and enigmatic, Garreth ap Daffyd. But the journey is not what she anticipated. She doesn’t expect to fall for the Lord of the castle, or to find herself deeply entrenched in legends, myths, and magic. Real legends, and real magic, that have devastating consequences.
Garreth didn’t plan for Essie to stay any longer than it took her to decipher the pictograph. Instead, he finds himself falling in love for the first time in his very long life. Now the Lord of Llys y Gwalch must find a way to attain the heart of his soul mate and keep her safe from the dangers that threaten them both…

Wolf and Aliyana Answer Questions, in the Shadow of the Witte Wieven Character Interview Part Two!

Original Post By Debbie Peterson

I know I promised this interview last week, BUT (and it’s a big but…) my lovely editor sent me the first round edits for my upcoming novel, Court of the Hawk–to  be published by The Wild Rose Press— and I had to work nonstop on getting them done and back to her in a timely fashion! (More information on that book will be forthcoming because I am so excited to share it!)

Anyway, I’ve once again asked Wolf and Aliyana to stop by and answer just a few more questions submitted by my wonderful readers, regarding their adventure as told in  Shadow of the Witte Wieven! So, here we go…

Boarding the “Flying Dutchman” 1887 by Boarding the “Flying Dutchman
Our first questions are for Wolf:
Now that you are very well aware of Aliyan’s skills and how she carries out her various duties, are you at all hesitant to include her on your more dangerous missions in your dimension or would you prefer that she sit home and knit?
Aliyana turns toward him and lifts a brow. Wolf merely chuckles in response and winks. “Not in the least. First of all, she is very capable and I–and my entire crew–find her quite an asset. Secondly, keeping her with me is the best way I know of to keep out of trouble.”
Oh boy…moving rapidly along…We know you were drawn to Aliyana the moment you rescued her from the plane, but what did you think after she awoke and revealed her personality?
“She reeled me in hook, line, and sinker…especially when she lost her temper and gave me ‘what for’ in Spanish. I found and still find that aspect of her personality very delightful. I must confess that every now and again I’ll deliberately say or do something that will provoke a heated Spanish response.”
Ah…you may be paying for that confession a little later today, Wolf.
Wolf grins, takes hold of Aliyana’s hand and gives it a gentle squeeze. “I’ll look forward to it!”
Ahem…You talk a little bit about Lissa (Van Locken’s Witch) in the newest edition of Shadow of the Witte Wieven and in one particular part of the story, you even hear her voice. Is that something that has occurred often over the centuries or was that incident the first time she connected with you after you crossed dimensions?
“Even though three centuries have come and gone, thoughts and memories of Rand and Lissa are never far from my mind. However, the incident you speak of is the only time I have ever heard her audibly.”
Did that surprise you and what do you think it might mean?
“Yes, it did surprise me and I am still trying to fully understand what she might have meant…”
All right Aliyana, we have a few more questions for you… As in the question we asked your handsome husband, we know you too, were drawn to him from the beginning. But despite the fear of allowing your attraction free reign, at what point did you know you lost the battle?
“I think it was a gradual process for me. Each day he chiseled away a little more of the wall I had around my heart. Then when he stepped into my dreams and made me face my feelings without my conscious shields, what remained of that wall came tumbling down. I knew then that I loved him beyond all recall.”
We are very glad to hear that! So, are children a part of your future?
Aliyana turns, gazes at Wolf, and returns his grin with a secret smile. “A whole houseful!”
Well, when they arrive, are you going to still work with Wolf on his various missions?
“As many as I can, but obviously I’ll have to slow down a little bit while they are little. But then again, perhaps during that time I can convince my dashing captain to slow down a bit as well!”
Aww… Well, thank you both very much for coming today and I hope that maybe some day you’ll agree to visit us again! After all, we’re going to want to know what happens to you in the future!
*********
And speaking of that future, tell me dear readers, do you prefer books in a series or just the stand alone novel?

Interviewing Characters from Shadow of the Witte Wieven… Part One!

I’ve had so much fun inviting my various book characters over for an interview, I thought I’d do it again. (Not to mention, I kind of, sort of, promised…)

Cover Created by the Awesome Shandra Kay!
In celebration of “Shadow of the Witte Wieven’s” Second Edition release (which provides additional content along with a BRAND NEW COVER), I gathered Wolf, Aliyana and the crew to answer some questions provided by my beta readers. I want to thank each of these very lovely ladies and let them know publicly that I just couldn’t do without their input, advice and support… You’re the best!
First up, we’ll get the “added content” out of the way for those who might not know. As I’ve mentioned before, when I first submitted Shadow of the Witte Wieven, Inkspell Publishing had an 80,000 word limit. My book far exceeded that number and therefore, much of the back story concerning the crew and Wolf’s past had to be edited out of the book. Even with all of the snipping, the story still came in at over 100,000 words. Because so many wanted to know more about the characters, I decided to write the back story in the form of a prequel entitled, “Van Locken’s Witch.” Then, to tie the two novels together a little bit better, Inkspell graciously allowed me to create a second edition with the needed additions to the story, and then give it a brand new look.
So, here we go, and the first few questions are for Wolf’s crew.
Andries, this question is just for you. As the oldest member of the crew, do you ever wish that you hadn’t been aboard the Witte Wieven when it passed into a different dimension, given the longer life span?
Andries shakes his head. “Not at all. I consider every day of my life a blessing and I wouldn’t trade away a single moment of it. In addition, the longer lifespan simply gives me more time to experience new adventures–and–the opportunity to finally get things right!”
My girls want to know if any of you have girlfriends or wives?
Laughter erupts as the boys look at each other. Laurens lifts a hand. “I’ll be the spokesmen for that if it’s all right. Right now I would have to say Conrad is closer to marriage than anyone else and we’ll leave it at that for now. Pieter and Cornelius are currently “involved” with very lovely ladies whom we all adore, while Johannes, Andries, and myself, are having far too much fun with the ladies to settle down with any one of them…at least at present.”

Are we going to hear about these ladies in a future story?

Pieter returns a conspiratorial wink. “Quite possible…”

Okay, one more and then we’ll save the rest for next time. Do you all feel the same physical sensation each time you pass through a portal, as you did the first time?

Johannes looks at his companions and shrugs. “To a degree, I would say, but not nearly as intense as the first time around.”

Thanks boys!  Aliyana, I’m only going to ask you one question today and then save all the rest for next week. My girls want to know why, since Wolf is so incredibly handsome, you were so adverse to accepting his help?

Aliyana turns her gaze toward Wolf and smiles. “Simply for the fear that engulfed me over the instant, intense, attraction I had for the man. I’d never felt anything like it before and I was so afraid that he’d end up breaking my heart.”

I understand the fear, but this is Wolf we’re talking about here.

Aliyana laughs and nods. “And that’s why he won…”
Originally Posted By Debbie Peterson

Wolf puts an arm around her shoulders and draws her close. “I had no intention of losing that battle, my love.”

And we’re all very happy to hear that Wolf. One question for you and then we’ll call it quits for today if you all promise to come back next week!

My lovely beta readers want to know at what point did you know, after all of your years roaming free as a bachelor, that you wanted Aliyana to be part of your forever?

“From the very moment she opened her exquisite green eyes and looked at me.”

Awwww…. Well thank you so much everyone and we’ll see you all same time, next week!

Cover Reveal For An Upcoming Pirate Romance!! It looks fun!!

Stephanie Hurt - Romance Author

I know I say this all the time, but it’s true. I have the best cover designer. I’ve been working on a new and exciting sub genre in romance, the Pirate Romance. It’s been such a eye opening experience and now we have a visual to go with the snippets I’ve posted. SO here goes:

Safe in the pirate's armsFront Cover

Just looking at it makes me excited. The characters in this book are both challenged in many ways and the sparks that fly will make you just giggle. Well they made me giggle. 

The book will be coming out really soon. As I will be on vacation starting Saturday, I plan on finishing the last of this one as I sit on the beach watching the waves. What more inspiration for a Pirate Romance do you need then to have your toes in the sand and the waves coming in.

As always, good writing and…
