Highlander’s Captive. Cover Reveal. GIVEAWAY. And So Much More.

This last week has been amazing. I’ve got so much to share with you all, I can barely contain my excitement.

First I’m going to bring you the fabulous cover for FIRST FROST, A Lyrical Press Anthology, coming November 11th, 2013. This anthology includes HIGHLANDER’S CAPTIVE, a novella in my Highlander Heat series.

Nine of Lyrical Press’s authors have come together to bring you a book filled with romance, including short stories ranging from sweet to steamy. So be prepared to melt away the winter chill if you pick up an ebook copy of FIRST FROST. I can’t wait for this anthology to release.

FIRST FROST is coming to readers compliments of those authors (yes, it’ll be free — exciting, right?), and I’ve listed below the talented writers I’ve joined with, and their individual titles. Here’s the fabulous cover by Renee Rocco. She’s done all my covers. I just love her work.


Melt away the winter chill with a little help from Lyrical’s authors.

And to top off my wonderful week, I have to tell you about the rogue hen I uncovered in my garden. Hours after I found her, I discovered she was sitting on seventeen eggs. Seventeen eggs! Over the next two or three hours all those eggs hatched, and my kiddies had a blast playing with the chicks. Did I mention there were seventeen chicks? I’ve since discovered the previous owner of the hen moved away, so I’ve adopted this hen and her family. Luckily we have a couple of acres for them to roam around in. Here’s a couple of cool pics I took of my kiddies and me on the front lawn with our swarm of adorable ones.



Don’t forget to drop me a comment if you’d like to. I love hearing from you guys.

  1. My chicken-expert friend thinks your chicks look like Barred Plymouth Rock (black down, with white spot on head, no feathers on legs, yellow legs and feet). What does the mother look like?

    1. Yes, that’s exactly the breed. Barred Plymouth Rock. Your expert is spot on. A friend actually popped around yesterday and she told me that was the breed too. I wasn’t aware until then, but she has some of the same chickens. Thanks so much for letting me know as well. I still can’t believe there are 17 chicks. I’ve been told to expect only half would be female, but the friend that dropped by did a check, and I have twelve females. Yay. The girls rock.
