One Winter's Kiss is a standalone Beautiful Nightmare Story.
She Warmed His Heart. He Cooled Her Soul. All with one kiss.
This Christmas get lost in the grandeur of Elysian Manor. It's Elysian Manor's turn to host the Supernatural Regency for their annual cotillion. The one time of year where a faction of human nobles, vampires, wolves and more collide to share in one common goal, civility. But that goal of civility will be tested when the forbidden love of a dutiful daughter and a hybrid wolf reveals a new and dangerous threat.
Whatever life I have, is already planned for me. My future. My heart. Every detail has been meticulously sculpted on my behalf, without my input. Dutiful to a fault, I walked the path chosen for me without a question or whimper.
Until I saw him. His golden eyes. His perfect smile. Everything about this man changes my trajectory in ways I could never imagine. And although my wits tell me to stay my course, my sails are set high and my boughs are breaking, no longing for just one kiss!
Love. The one thing I've long avoided has finally gripped my heart.. Never have I given much thought to the notion of love or a mate I could call my own. Until now. This girl—no—this woman. She perplexes me. My every thought is of her and she is driving me insane. How a mere mortal can cause such deep yearning, I'll never know. Her eyes. Her laugh. Her smile—and yes, her lips! Her kiss would ruin a wretched soul such as I—but I don't care. I'd wreck the entirety of my world for just one kiss!
About the Author
Well, at least that's how I'm described in the confines of my everyday life.
Writing has always been second nature to me. I spent my childhood creating short stories and my collegiate years writing for the campus paper (Go TERPS!) Jump twenty years to the present--I'm still writing. At my day job I spend most of my time writing capability briefs, white papers, proposals--you name it.
Then one day it hit me! It was time to access my own creative power and bring to life the characters I've created in my mind.
In addition to enjoying life with my amazing family, I can usually be found with my head in a book, binging my favorite shows, and watching movies with jaw-dropping scores! (I love all things Danny Elfman!)
I hope you enjoy my first book, Beautiful Nightmare. It has everything you'd look to find in a paranormal romance-urban fantasy-new age novel. Vampires. Wolves. Love. And so much more!
