Sparks Fly When a Tenth Century Viking Kidnaps a Modern-day Woman.



It’s that time again! Another sizzling hot Viking time travel romance is available for pre-order. Though I love all my stories and characters, writing Viking's Intent seriously rocked. I had so much fun with Davyn and Shea. Think endless banter and comical moments. ;-) 

All I can say is you haven’t been properly kidnapped by a Viking until you’ve ended up thrown over Viking Davyn Sigdir’s broad shoulder and swept away on a non-stop adventure. You don’t want to miss this so scoop up your copy of Viking’s Intent (Viking Ancestors: Rise of the Dragon, Book 3) now so you'll have it on release day!

About the Book


           

Part of a burgeoning ancient prophecy, Shea's sole focus is to protect her sisters. Not become mated to a Viking of her dragon ancestor's choosing. If that happens, she might lose not just her independence but a matchmaking gift that brings people together. A gift at risk when she's kidnapped by a stubborn, frustratingly handsome barbarian who takes her on a whirlwind adventure through tenth century Scandinavia.

Though at odds with the twenty-first century beauty from the moment he meets her, Viking Davyn Sigdir steals Shea away to keep her safe from multiple enemies set on making her theirs. Unfortunately, he underestimates how alluring she can be when it suits her. How feisty and headstrong she is as she tries to outwit him at every turn.Yet the fiery strife between them only draws them closer, and soon their unwanted attraction becomes hard to resist.

Determined to control their own fate, they devise a bold plan to trick their adversaries. One that could keep Shea's matchmaking gift intact plus end the prophecy and ongoing war. All they have to do is agree to be separated forever. Are they willing to pay such a steep price for the greater good? Or will it be too hard to say goodbye in the end? Find out as a passionate high-stakes war of hearts ensues in Viking's Intent.

Haunted Halloween Spooktacular Featuring The Witches of Doyle by Kirsten Weiss.


Welcome all! Today it's my pleasure to feature a Halloween Interview with Kirsten Weiss. So sit back, relax and enjoy!

Q: What kind of supernatural research do you do, and how long do you spend researching before beginning a book?

A: It depends on the book. But I believe that especially when I’m writing some magical, basing the magic on real, historical systems makes the stories seem more “real.” So, I’ll usually research whatever magical system my heroine works in (e.g. shamanism, earth witchery, or alchemy) as well as the mythology of whatever other characters she encounters. It’s a lot of fun!

Q: What haunted pilgrimages have you gone on?

A: Recently, I went on a ghost hunt in Gettysburg, PA. It’s been on my bucket list, because it’s supposed to be one of the most haunted parts of America. We got to play with EMF detectors and other ghost hunting equipment. I’m not sure if we encountered any ghosts, but we did encounter a lot of Gettysburg teens. Apparently playing with Ouija boards at the local ghost sites is the thing to do.

Q: Do you hide any magical secrets in your books that only a few people will find?

A: Mercury is the archetype of communication and business, so I always insert his name in my books somewhere as a nod to him.

Q: Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym?

A: I actually have written under one. In my Witches of Doyle cozy mysteries, one of my witches, Karin Bonheim, writes paranormal romance (PNR). I thought it would be fun to write some PNR novellas as Karin, and weave her story in between the chapter. These novellas are The Witches of Doyle In-Betweens.

Q: What other authors are you friends with, and how do they help you become a better writer?

A: My sister, Allyson Charles, writes romance (she’s super funny), and she introduced me to her gang of fellow romance writers. They’ve really helped me kick up the romance in my mysteries several notches. I’m indebted to them on several levels.

Q: Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book?

A: A little of both! My Witches of Doyle series is connected to my Wits End cozy mysteries. They all take place in Doyle, and characters make cameos in each others’ books. And of course, there are those paranormal romances I mentioned under the Karin Bonheim name – some of my Wits’ End characters show up there as well.

Q: How many unpublished and half-finished books do you have?

A: Too many! I’ve been rolling out a new book every month since June, and the last title in this publishing frenzy, The Gargoyle Chronicles, will publish in November. And Fey, Book 5 from The Witches of Doyle, is out October 28th. I’m also working on books four and five in my Pie Town cozy mystery series. The third book in that series, Pie Hard, will launch in January, 2019. And I’ve got the first book in a new Tea and Tarot series which will probably publish in early 2019 and is called Steeped in Murder. And then there’s book 4 in my Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum series, Chocolate a’la Murder. That’s coming out in March, 2019.
