Miranda Moon’s vivid imagination has gotten her into trouble more times than she can count. This time, she’s been suspended from school. So her straight-laced younger brother, Marcus, blames her when they’re relegated to their late grandparents’ old cabin over Halloween weekend. But when Miranda finds a curious trinket, they’re mysteriously whisked away to Wunderwood, where magic flows through the trees and everyone already knows their family name. A place even Miranda never imagined.

Just as they arrive, a sinister warlock, Thornton Crow, is freed from a long banishment. He resumes his deadly agenda to find The Tree of Mindala, the source of all the realm’s magic. As Miranda and Marcus discover branches of their own family tree that they hadn’t even known existed, they learn that Thornton has a score to settle with anyone in their bloodline. Especially them… Though justice has always had a way of being naturally restored in Wunderwood, Thornton’s latest evil deed just may be the tipping point.

When Miranda discovers her own role in Thornton’s release, she knows it’s up to her to stop him from stealing not just magic, but also hope. With travel companions that could as easily be foes as friends, and only the cryptic words of a prophecy to guide her, Miranda must decide if she can carry out the task that will either save Wunderwood… or doom it forever.

My professional titles have included software programmer, bilingual sales rep, and proposal specialist. But my favorite title, besides wife and mother, is author. It’s the only one that lets me call daydreaming “research.” My love for the outdoors is my greatest inspiration. I lives in Wisconsin with my husband and two young sons, none of whom are in a hurry to grow up, and that’s just fine with me.

Grief is difficult enough when it is pure and simple; it is even more difficult when it is tainted by guilt.

Fey O’Brien has been in love with Alec Cusack, a farmer and fisherman, from the moment she moved to the coastal village of Port Dubh. She was in love with him long before her husband died – so much so that she paid no heed to the rumours. Maybe Alec’s father killed his mother and then himself; that is, after all, what the inquest decided. Or could what the locals say be true: did Alec Cusack kill at least one of his parents?

After the death of Alec’s wife, suspicion follows Alec once again. As he and Fey are growing closer, guilt takes over, and Fey leaves Port Dubh. She begins a relationship with Shane Wilde, an artist. Shane is rich, handsome, and liked by all. But Fey cannot get Alec Cusack off her mind.

She returns to the coast, and embarks on a trip to Ewes’ Rest, the island where Alec’s parents met their deaths. Will Fey’s time on the island finally reveal the truth? Or will it bring new and unexpected dangers her way?

She’s dreamed of a fairytale wedding, but Tristan Fulmore is not her Prince Charming.

Marilee Davis

All my life I dreamed of the perfect husband, the perfect wedding, and the perfect life. It’s what I was born to do — be a good wife and mother — and all I ever wanted. My sister’s eighteenth birthday meant that she, too, was on the look-out for a husband. How could a curvy girl like me compete with my model thin sister? There was no chance of anyone noticing me with Sharilyn around — or so I thought.

I never thought that when the time came for me to walk down the altar I would be looking for an escape route. I never imagined that the man I would marry would be surrounded by dark rumors of a shady past.

All I wanted was a way out of this disaster. The only thing I have to do is resist my ridiculously sexy husband for three months. No problem.

Tristan Fulmore

For twenty years I’ve been an outcast — a social pariah. Any invitations I received were solely for novelty’s sake; no one wanted to know the truth, they just wanted the danger of being near Tristan Fulmore, the caged lion ready to pounce.

But that wasn’t me at all. I didn’t think anyone would ever be able to see past all of the lies and rumors. I didn’t even want to fantasize about it when I knew it would never happen. That was, until I met Marilee.

Most men wouldn’t be intrigued by a woman that slapped him in the face. But I wasn’t most men. I had to have the firecracker blond if it was the last thing I did.

I got my ring on her finger and the ceremony went off without a hitch… Now I just had to find a way to get my delectable bride into my bed. Piece of cake.

This is a stand-alone novel and can be read on its own. However, it is the third of the same Universe, so if you enjoy Mari and Tristan, give my other couples a try in Carrying Hope and Chasing Aubrey.
