Happiness is knowing that your favorite author is going to write a new book.

Wow! Well, this last year has been a bit crazy with the whole pandemic and all the crazy stuff that happened in our country. Between riots and elections, I'm ready for some emotional time off.
I suppose January is a time for new year resolutions. I'm not really one to write out my resolutions. But here is a go at it.
This year I'm hoping that I can improve. That seems very generic, but there are a lot of areas where I want to improve. I want to improve my writing. I want to improve my sales. I want to improve my audience reach.
I also want to improve myself. I want to make better choices, make more time to serve others, and get a little closer to my Heavenly Father. I also want to improve my eating (I've already started, but I can't quite give up sugar yet), and I want to improve how much I exercise.
I suppose in life there is always room for change. So lets move forward in this new year and make some good improvements!!!
From Book 1: The fae of the Night Court are desperately searching for a new monarch to crown before the Court collapses.
I couldn’t care less.
I’ve done everything I can to bury my fae blood and embrace my human half. That changes when some fae nobles show up on my doorstep and announce that I’m the next Queen of the Night Court.
Becoming an unwilling fae queen? Check. Inheriting a terrible mess? Double check.
The Court is almost bankrupt, my citizens’ favorite hobby is backstabbing one another, and I don’t know who I can trust since someone keeps trying to assassinate me.
Speaking of assassins, I get introduced to the best in the business—a fae lord nicknamed the Wraith. His deadly profession means he fears no one. The only reason he doesn’t kill me on the spot is he’s also a member of the Night Court and the Court’s magic protects me. But that doesn’t prevent him from trading verbal barbs with me whenever we meet.
And if cat herding all these uncooperative fae and chatting with assassins wasn’t enough, I’m required to get married as part of some archaic Court law. This “queen” gig is the worst!
Supposedly I can choose anyone to marry, but with all the infighting I need someone who is neutral and won’t provoke more political power struggles.
So, why do I keep thinking of a certain assassin?
Court of Midnight and Deception is an urban fantasy trilogy featuring fae, werewolves, vampires, and wizards. It’s packed with humor, adventure, and a sweet, slow burn romance between a reluctant fae queen and the assassin who tried to kill her.
I loved this series. I read all three books in three days. Each one has a partial HEA, but you have to read all three to get all the goods. I loved the snark of the main character and how she managed to work with all the good and bad situations to make her world a little better.
