It’s here! It’s here!
I’m thrilled to reveal the cover for my time travel romance, Charming the Professor. Here’s the blurb:
The Charm Gates have stood at The Court of Two Sisters for more than a century with no one guessing the secret they hold. Thanks to a jealous vindictive queen and a blackmailed alchemist, French “charm teacher” Madeline Charlebois’s essence is encased inside, until a grieving professor touches the gates during a storm and Madeline tumbles out, not in her own 19th century Spain, but in 21st century New Orleans.
Quantum physics Professor Grant Stewart has mourned his wife’s death for the last three years. But he must move on for his young daughter’s sake, the child who delights in terrorizing babysitters. Grant needs adequate childcare to pursue tenure at Tulane. What he doesn’t need is a French beauty believing nonsense like time-travel and voodoo, and whose very being is melting his heart.
Maddie may be without resources but she’s good at making new friends, even if they are on the quirky side. She believes Professor Stewart can return her home, but first she must earn his trust to win his cooperation. Babysitting his daughter gives her both proximity, and love for the child. Will Grant be the key to returning to her time? Or will she, in turn, unlock his frozen heart? All they need is time and perhaps a little voodoo…
Sounds like fun, right? It is. This has been a book of my heart since I first visited New Orleans and noticed the Charm Gates in a dusty corner of a deserted hallway.
I’m anticipating releasing the book in early 2016 in time for Mardi Gras, but I also plan to release a prequel short story, The Moor’s Tear, to enrich the book a little bit. So watch for that release as well.
Next month, I’ll tell you more about a Christmas short story connected to the Rake Patrol. It’s become a whirlwind season for releases J.
Earlier this year, I released another short story just to see if I could J. This one, SMOKE AND MIRRORS, is actually a story I wrote a good ten years ago. It was published in the DreamQuest Anthology, a collection of paranormal short stories. This one is contemporary, but as my first publishing credit, it’s earned a place in my heart. You can find it on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I should have it up on iBooks shortly.
