Midnight’s Master

From the acclaimed author of the Dark Sword novels comes a thrilling spin off series in which ancient magic in the modern world ignites a timeless passion…

A MYSTERY OUT OF TIME

Gwynn Austin has no idea why her father has disappeared on a mysterious trip to Scotland.  When she goes on a desperate mission to search for him she finds more than she bargains for in a ruggedly handsome, wickedly exciting Highlander who exudes danger and mystery. And when she discovers her own link to Scotland, she’ll have to trust her heart to help lead her….

A LEGEND IN THE FLESH

Propelled through time by powerful Druid Magic, Logan Hamilton uses his immortality and powers of the god inside him to help prevent the awakening of an ancient evil in the modern world. He never expects to find help in the form of a beautiful, alluring, and all too tempting woman whose passion and strength matches his own. Together, Logan and Gywnn must fight for their love—before a demon from the past destroys them both…

A Kind of Magic

Greetings Dear Reader,

I was born an immortal prince on the realm of Thales. I lived the life of grandeur, revered and respected, but my one true love was fighting. I was given a special gift in my battle abilities and soon became known as Thales’ finest warrior. But all that changed the day my brother died and an evil descended upon my realm. With Thales on the verge of ruin, I bound myself to The Shields to protect the realms from the evil that ravages them. But I have a dark secret that I must atone for. Then and only then can I return to Thales and face my family. My special battle skills and my immortality help to keep my goals in front of me. They have always been clear…

Until Elle.

Elle makes me long for things I cannot have. Her innate goodness makes me want to grasp what she offers with both hands, but I know that we can never have what she seeks. Elle bears a mark that signals her one of a chosen few who were sent to Earth as infants. She and the others who bear the mark must be found and kept hidden from the ancient evil that seeks them, for they hold the key to the evil’s ruination.

The only way to keep Elle safe is to keep her by my side, but can I resist the temptation to take her love?

The Shields #2

March 22, 2012 Rerelease

ALSO AVAILABLE:

A Dark Seduction

Dear Friend,

Most would give all they had to be raised in the Realm of the Fae. I had no choice. I was too young to remember anything of my own realm, save for snatches of memories that could be no more than my imagination. But if it hadn’t been for the Fae who found me wandering between realms after mine was destroyed, I would be dead now. It was the Fae who raised me and trained me in weaponry and battle skills until I became a warrior to be feared. When the same evil that destroyed my realm threatened Earth and the Fae, I was the first to volunteer for the Shields.

With my immortality the only link I have to my past, I take what comfort I can in the arms of women. I want nothing more than one night with them, one night to forget that I cannot remember my family, one night to take what pleasure I can. It isn’t until I find Shannon that I begin to think of more than just one night in her arms.

Shannon has been brought back in time from Chicago to 1244 England because the evil knows what she is – one of the Chosen. Somehow the evil has found the Chosen before the Shields. His plan is to kill Shannon, but I won’t allow that. My duty is to protect her at all costs.

I’ve never known fear until now – until Shannon.

HISTORICAL ROMANCE AUTHOR REBECCA SINCLAR,GIVEAWAY AND VISIT…

IT IS OUR PLEASURE TO WELCOME REBECCA SINCLAIR TO MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE TODAY!!

PRESENTS…..

Rebecca Sinclair ~ www.rebeccasinclair.com

Historical Romance Author

WELCOME REBECCA!!

Good morning Rebecca and welcome to My Book Addiction and More….

G’morning, and thank you for having me here at My Book Addiction and More…. I’m so excited to be here!  I do hope you realize when I say “morning” I really mean it. According to my clock it’s, let’s see, 12:28am, and I’ve just gotten up to get some work done. Of course, by the time I finish writing all this up it will be much later…however, knowing me, it’ll probably still be “morning!” As in the sun has not yet come up and there’s still so much to do!  🙂

MBA&M: Please give our readers a few tidbits about Rebecca Sinclair?

REBECCA: Okay. Here’s something few people know about me: When I first started writing all those many years ago, I was considered prolific. I mean, I wrote long historical romances to the tune of two books per year, if not more! These days I’m a more careful, thoughtful writer—and by that I don’t necessarily mean slow. I prefer to take my time and really savor both the research and the writing stages of putting a book together. I’m no longer in a rush to “pump books out”, nor do I have anyone, shall we say “encouraging” me to do so. Instead, I feel have earned the luxury of writing at my own pace, finally, and I’m absolutely loving it!

MBA&M: What do you think the appeal of romance is to readers?

REBECCA: Hmmm…. You mean aside from a hero to-die-for in both mind and body? And a heroine who epitomizes all the qualities we only wish we had? As well as settings of exotic locales that make us as a reader forget, even for just a minute, that dirty diapers need to be changed, or business files need to be transcribed, or dissertations to be ordered from some custom dissertation writing service I used to work for myself a while ago? Then, of course, while there’s a guaranteed HEA, there’s no guarantee of how it’s arrived at…which brings into play all kinds of hair-raising, spine-tingling, toe-curling adventures. Mix in a delicious dose of intimacy, spiced-to-taste, and several unexpected bumps in the always-complicated relationship road, and you’ve got—  <ahem!> I’m sorry, maybe I didn’t understand the question. You see, from my point of view, what isn’t appealing about a good romance?

MBA&M: Which do you enjoy writing more Contemporary, Medieval, Time-Travel or Young Adult?

REBECCA: Whichever I’m writing at the moment. I make it a practice to fall in love with my w-i-p and the characters in it. While I’m working on it, the current project is always my favorite.

MBA&M: We see you are coming off of a ten year sabbatical, how hard was it to get back into writing and how do you see things are changing?

REBECCA: It wasn’t hard to go back to writing. That came as natural as breathing. Going back to publishing, OTOH, was something else again. From what I can see, I think it’s safe to say everything has changed. EBooks, which had just scratched the surface back then, are exploding and finding an ever-growing audience ten years later. Social media now works as its own branch of the marketing arm. And Amazon publishes its own books! New York publishers require manuscripts to be sent digitally, and many agents even prefer to be queried that way. Acceptances/rejections are virtually instantaneous. There are whole communities available to writers today—from casual to uber-professional—that can be taken advantage of without getting out of your Pj’s, any hour of the day/night.

These are things I only dreamt of when I started networking on my computer back in the 80s. You know, back when there wasn’t a Web that most people today would recognize, when no one had heard of Amazon because they hadn’t started selling books yet, and Google was still a thing of the future. I’m told dinosaurs were also roaming the earth then, but I couldn’t tell you; I was too busy writing to notice (Oh, and playing around online—yes, there was an “online”, even then, if you knew how to find it!)

It looks like once the cyber world took over; everything started changing at an astonishing rate publishing included. I can’t see it slowing down any time soon. Just the opposite, I see it speeding up.

MBA&M:Out of all of your books which is your favorite and why?

REBECCA: My next one. Because it’s going to be oh, so much better than all the ones that came before it. (Like every writer, this is my mantra every time I start a new book. ha-ha!)

MBA&M: When you do a series do you have each book in mind before you start writing or as you go?

I think I’m the only writer these days who doesn’t do series. Lol! While a couple of characters in my early books are related, I don’t even do cross-overs. All my books are stand alones.

MBA&M: Where do your ideas come from?

Urg! I was afraid you’d ask that. To be honest, I have a devil of a time coming up with ideas. I mean, I really, really struggle. The process can take weeks, months, sometimes longer!  While I can look tell you where I got the idea for each of my published books (the sources are wild and varied) I can’t tell you where I’ll even begin to look for my next idea. Sometimes a fact in a history book fascinates me and I’ll start digging, wanting to know more. Sometimes a tidbit in a documentary on TV catches my eye and gets me off and running. But many, many more times I get the basic kernel of an idea from something I’ve misread or misheard or in some insane way that is intrinsically my own, completely and totally misunderstood.

MBA&M: Please tell our readers where to find you and where your books are available?

Sure. I try to keep my website updated (http://www.rebeccasinclair.com). Tip: make sure to always check all the way down to the bottom of the page! 😉  Also, I’m slowly reprinting my old books in digital format through “ePublishing Works!” who, together with Kim Killion on cover designs, are doing an amazing job. The books can be found at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo…just about anywhere eBooks are sold.

Rebecca, is there anything you would like to add?

Yes! I’m not sure how long it will last (I don’t have any say in pricing), but for right now California Caress is on sale for $2.99 at Amazon. For anyone who has wanted to try one of my books, this is an excellent chance to do so at almost half price.

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit with us and our readers today at My Book Addiction and More!!

Hey, it was my pleasure. I had a great time. Thank you so much for having me!  I hope you noticed that I tried to keep my answers short and to-the-point, however if there’s one thing I’ve always excelled at, it’s going over word count!  🙂

Sorry for getting you up so early!! Please visit with us again soon, we enjoyed our time with you today!!

Overview(From B&N)

                 Gabrielle Carelton is one of Queen Elizabeth’s most devoted ladies-in-waiting. But her loyalty is put to the test when Her Majesty commands her to marry Scotsman Collin Douglas. When Gabrielle is kidnapped by Collin’s twin brother, not even Good Queen Bess can save her. Dubbed the Black Douglas, devilishly handsome Connor is known throughout the land for his magnificent feats of strength and cunning. But now he is in need of an heir. An English bride will bring peace to the warring nations — and give him the son he craves. What he doesn’t expect is a woman as passionate as she is proud … and a desire that knows no boundaries. Set against the pageantry and savage splendor of 16th-century England and Scotland, here is the story of a man and a woman who begin as enemies and strangers — and find a love that will triumph against all odds.

GIVEAWAY WITH MEDIEVAL SCOTTISH AUTHOR,MARY WINE,” THE HIGHLANDER’S PRIZE” by Mary Wine!

 

SOURCEBOOKS AND MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE PRESENTS…..

Image

Good morning Mary, and welcome to My Book Addiction and More!

Thank you so much! It’s a blast to be invited over to chat about my newest baby.

MBA&M: For the readers, who may not know you, please give them some insight into Mary Wine?

MARY: I’m engaged in a constant battle to catch my own tail. Hummm, maybe that isn’t the best way to put it. I am a writer of romance novels and I love it! For the past couple of years, I’ve been working on steamy historicals. This month, The Highlander’s Prize is releasing. It’s the first book in a new saga, set in the era of the war of the roses.

MBA&M: What do you feel the appeal for Highlanders is in today market?

MARY: The Celtic people are amazing. They survive in a place that is as rugged as it is beautiful. Their culture is old and their land mystical. The Highlanders I write about are men devoted to their honor and to the well-being of their people. What girl doesn’t dream of a man who might aim some of that focus toward her? The reality of life is often in conflict with what our inner princess longs for. When I pen a Highlander tale, I’m reaching into my own heart to find that hero I’d like to have sweep me off my feet.

MBA&M: How much research goes into writing a historical romance set in Scotland?

MARY: Research is a state of mind for me. I adore history. I don’t think there is a history channel special I haven’t adored and prowling around old buildings is my idea of a fun afternoon. When it comes to my books, I really do like to get the setting correct. I want my Highlander novels to be more than just the hero and his castle. There were just as many stresses in these times as now and I believe that enriches the story.

MBA&M: Have you been to Scotland, if so what is some of your favorite memories?

MARY: Actually no. But it is on the bucket list that I plan to start on as soon as the nest is empty.

MBA&M: Of all your books, which is your favorite and why?

MARY: I’m always in love with my new babies but there is a spot in my heart for my first book, Dream Shadow. It isn’t on sale at the moment but it is very dear to my heart. In August my newest endeavor will launch, a three book Steam Punk series that I am having a lot of fun writing. But even after that, my Highlanders really hold onto a large section of my heart.

MBA&M:Who is your favorite character in “THE HIGHLANDER’S PRIZE”?

MARY: Broen, my hero. He’s devoted to his people but drawn to Clarissa. What fascinates me about him is his patience. He was a little bit Ninja there, just placing himself in front of her time and again until she yielded.

MBA&M: If you could step into a book and that world, where would it be? Even if it is not one of yours.

MARY: Oh my, what a question. Shall I say Narnia or just expose my inner geek and say Earth of Star Trek? I’ll tell you this, wherever I go, there is going to be high teck medical stuff…no more dentist drills for me!

MBA&M: When you do a series, do you have each book in mind before you start writing or do they come after?

MARY: When I begin I always have the next book in mind, which lasts exactly until I write book one and some other character decided to hijack the next book. This leads to the most interesting conversations with my editors.

____________

MBA&M: Please tell our readers where to find you and where “THE HIGHLANDER’S PRIZE” is available?

Mary:As I’m writing this, I’m all packed and ready to depart for the Romantic Times Book Lovers convention. I will be signing at the book signing on Saturday.

        Mary, do you have anything else to add?

Mary:I want to wish everyone a wonderful spring. Get out and catch some sun, feed some ducks and cheer for your favorite team! Thank you so much for reading and please drop by my Facebook page for information and new contests. Cheers.

It is such a pleasure to have you visit with us and our readers. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit with us!!
