    Summary

    Once upon a time, an Elven prince rescued a mortal healer from a pack of wolves in human skin. He was gravely wounded, and for three moons she tended him faithfully before he sent her back to her life in the mortal realm.

    But he remembered her, and a second night of danger dragged her further into his world.

    Lonely after her ordeal in the New York subway, Dylan Myers finds solace in the nightly visits from Prince Nuada Silverlance. Each night, he comes to her cottage on the edge of Central Park and they share food and stories. During those hours of simple, tenuous friendship, it is easy to forget the darkness beyond the walls of the cottage.

    Then one of Nuada's enemies lays a vicious trap that results in the prince being slandered and condemned a criminal by his father, the king of Bethmoora...a trap that sends Dylan rushing to Faerie to stand at Nuada's side.

    A mortal has never stood beside Prince Nuada...until now. And Dylan's choice will thrust her and Nuada both further toward the destiny that will change the fate of both species.

    Summary

    Part 3 of The McClary Chronicles - picks up three months after the end of Samhach Mhiannan, with Molly making a life changing decision for herself and newborn Pod...and by extension, King McClary, the cranky Scotsman who has returned to his home in the Highlands without her. Nobody ever said true love was an easy path to walk, but Molly's got a good sturdy pair of hiking boots this time around. Which one will beg for mercy first: the determined mother of the next King of Claighe, or the current king himself?

    The title, Na Binne an Leann, means "The Sweeter the Ale" - which is the second part of an old Scottish saying that I just totally made up for this story. The whole quote goes "An teotha na grùdaireachd na binne an leann", which translates to "The hotter the brewing, the sweeter the ale"....meaning basically "the more you go through to be together, the stronger your love will be."

    Summary

    Once upon a time, a pack of wolves in human skin hunted a mortal maiden through an underground labyrinth of metal and stone. They hunted her, caught her...only for her to be rescued by a beast out of a fairytale.

    Dylan Myers is more than a lost little girl in the subway. A youth psychiatrist with the Sight, she has lived her entire life fighting for the lives and livelihood of the Fair Folk. Though her family thinks she's crazy, though her dedication to the Fae has cost her a great deal in her twenty-eight years, her heart remains true to her cause.

    Prince Nuada is the exiled heir to the Bethmooran throne. A broken heart masked by a scarred, bitter shell, through centuries of grief he has come to believe humans are irredeemable; for the sake of his people, mankind must be exterminated.

    Then, one night, compelled by honor and memory, Nuada rescues Dylan. Injured and on the verge of death, he has no choice but to trust his enemy to save him. And in learning to trust each other, Dylan and Nuada will embark on a journey that could change the fate of humans and Fair Folk alike.

    Summary

    The sequel to Sgaile Leannan - Molly has returned home from Scotland, leaving King McClary behind in his own life while moving on with hers.

    *Sàmhach Mhiannan translates as "Quiet Wishes" from Scottish Gaelic to English.

    Summary

    The story of Death, however he may be portrayed in any culture, and his beloved wife. How they met. Rated T because she had to die so she can meet him, and death is unpleasant. I tried to keep it low on the details.

    Summary

    Part 1 of The McClary Chronicles

    Stuck in Scotland doing soil-testing research, Molly finds herself completely out of her element and in the crosshairs of a rough local who doesn't turn a welcoming eye to strangers. Caught in a dangerous storm in an unfamiliar place, her only option beside freezing to death or getting lost on the mountain is to follow him home...

    King McClary is a difficult sort of man - quiet, withdrawn, sullen and surly, living wild and appreciating the company of no one but the sheep he herds across the rough Highland hills. When the noisy woman from somewhere else shows up on his land, all he wants is to get her gone. Until a blizzard strands them together in his tiny cabin and nature starts to do its unwelcome thing.

    Sgàile Leannan translates roughly to "Demon Lover", "Ghost Lover", or any variation thereof...I'm not being terribly nitpicky about absolute translations because Scottish Gaelic to English isn't an exact science. Just enjoy and have fun ;)

    Summary

    The prologue of my book: "The Resurrection of Legend: The Grail Knight"

    ---
    “Fine, whatever. Just one quick question before you break out the duck-tape: how do we even know this thing is still around, fertilizer aside? It could have gone up creek since the local parents have turned into helicopters and cut off its food supply.” Erik pointed out smugly.

    There was a loud crash in the nearby trees. Branches were being torn asunder, like arms from a torso, and then were hurled in random directions, colliding violently with neighboring trees. Entire trunks were splintered by furious stomps and the thrashing of a hulking body fighting for room to rise up on its hind legs and tower over the tallest of the forest’s interlopers by several feet. In the darkness, yellow eyes shone demonically and a slick hide glimmered in the moonlight pouring through the destroyed canopy. The beast let out a howl caught halfway between a mare’s spirited neigh and Cerberus’ warning growl.

    Summary

    I have only seen a Selkie once.

    I was seventeen, walking alone along the quiet, rock-strewn beach of a sleepy little English town. He was shirtless, sitting chest-deep in the water with his face to the sea, his hair black and ragged around his shoulders.
