Thanks to Romance Junkies for allowing me to become a monthly guest blogger.
Let me give you a brief blurb…
An ancient prophecy comes to life in an erotic tale of forbidden love.
Talia’s visit home turns upside down when dark, frightening creatures appear seemingly from nowhere and transport her to another world. The faerie world. In this mystical paradise, she finds her life and honor threatened for reasons she does not understand.
When Calion Sáralondë, Prince of the Calen’taur Elves, rescues the human female from an orcan stronghold, his attraction to her is immediate and strong. And the feeling is mutual. Though their love is sardai—taboo—Calion can’t bring himself to send her back to her world. Her presence sets a fire in his soul only mating with her can tame.
And their passion could be the answer to an ancient prophecy that saves his world.
Cool, huh? Wait till you read it! Reviewer and readers alike use words like, “beautiful writing”, “sensational”, “uniquely creative”, and “breathtaking imagery” to describe it.
I’ve also had a few emails asking me where I get my ideas, so I thought it might be interesting to show you where some of the ideas for beyond the faerie myst came from. From dark forests to painted valleys, our own earth holds a myriad of inspirations. Join me now as I take you to Beyond the Faerie Myst…in our own backyard.
The Myst…in the
What happened to us during those two weeks? Were we transported beyond the Myst? We never found out, but we’ve never forgotten. And thus, a story is born.
The Valley of Osali…which in the human tongue means “Perfection”.
And for those of you who don’t recognize this magnificent place, it is the one and only Yosemite Valley. Painted by the Creator’s brush, it is one of the most beautiful areas in the world.
This is the inspiration for the kingdom where Calion and the Calen’taur elves make their home. Filled with serenity, magick and tradition, Yosemite fills all the above requirements.
It is here where the prophecy will come to pass.
Whispering Falls…A Place of love and enchantment.
A beautiful place taken from one of the many gorgeous waterfall areas in Northern Oregon and Southern Washington. Each with their own mystery and secrets.
Shimmering lights in the sky point to the Aurora Borealis which sometimes can be seen that far south, and the hidden hot springs, are a nod to the many exquisite places that every traveler should visit just once.
In the book you’ll hear me mention the Forest of Mysyr.
I’ve spent many an enjoyable time wandering through these massive giants and I always felt the trees were watching and wondering about me.
It’s that sense of spookiness that I tried to convey in the story, Eyes of Fire.
Those are just a few of the inspirations for my magical world behind the faerie myst. To learn more about Talia, Calion and their friends and foes, purchase the book and enjoy. And let me know if you recognize any of the other places in the story. It’s all true, you know. Every word. The Myst is real and so are the places beyond the veil.
