The Faery Pooka with Dani Harper

There’s a wide variety of Fae beings in my new paranormal fantasy, STORM WARNED, all of them based on Welsh faery legends and lore. One of the fae creatures making an appearance is the Pooka or, as it’s spelled in Welsh, Pwca. (the “w” is pronounced like the “oo” in moon). The faery Pwca is a shapeshifter, able to appear as many different creatures but almost always black as coal with glowing yellow eyes. Many stories feature it as a large male goat with sweeping horns, a fearsome goblin, or even an enormous raven, but its favorite form is that of a horse. Whatever form it takes, the Pwca has the power of human speech. The Pwca roams the countryside after dark, usually creating mischief […]

Bring on the Bling By Isabella Bradford   I’m so excited for the release this week of my newest historical romance, A SINFUL DECEPTION. This is a story that’s been in my head for a long time, and I’ve always wanted to write a book that includes not just Georgian England, but the farthest corners of the British Empire. My heroine, Serena Carew, was born in India, the daughter of a English nobleman stationed there. While Serena has spent most of her life as an English lady, her Indian heritage is impossible for her to forget – and it’s also one of the things that Lord Geoffrey Fitzroy comes to love most about her.   There are many memories and experiences that make Serena who […]

What kind of research did you do for this book? I’m always entertained to tell people my husband has to take a couple of days off of work toward the end of each book so that we can be sure all the different positions work. I’m lying, but it’s an entertaining thing to say it nonetheless. My books tend to take place around the very beginning of the eighteenth century. I like the time period as it’s right before the Act of Union in 1707, which merged Scotland into the newly formed entity of Great Britain, which for all practical purposes put Scotland under England’s control. The tense political situation is good canvas on which to paint a love story, especially if the hero and heroine […]

If you’re new to town, there are a few things you need to be aware of. Spokane is paranormal central. Don’t ask me why but for some reason, paranormals love it here. We’re home to the largest shifter faction in the United States and have the third largest vampire coven. Don’t discount the witches, harpies, or any of the other races though because well, they call Spokane home too. If you’re planning on sticking around for a while, here is what you need to know. First and foremost, don’t be afraid. Easier said than done, am I right? Well if you are a big fraidy-cat, this is not the place for you. Paranormals feed off of your fear and if you’re near vampires or shifters […]

EXCERPT   “I’m feeling like you might be wasting perfectly good Native American teachings on a sensible, unfaithful, hard-core must-see-it-to-believe-it kind of guy,” Luke admitted. “No teaching is wasted. Someone always learns something, even if they don’t want to.” Arielle lifted her hand, this time to graze his jaw while studying his face. “And you don’t have to hold back on your skepticism or unbelief, although…” “Although what?” he prodded. She sighed slowly. “Although if the things I hold true and dear in my heart are meaningless to you, then…does that mean you are meaningless to me? I’m not sure I want to know that yet.” “Yet?” Like him being meaningless was inevitable? “Not sure I want to know that yet, either,” he admitted as […]

The Inspiration Behind Reagan’s Redemption: I’ve wanted to tell Reagan and Shane’s story for quite a while now, but I kept putting it off, knowing where the weeks of research would take me. Reagan Rosner is a doctor, which is great for her but not so much for me as the writer. Unfortunately, I’m a bit of a hypochondriac who is afflicted with White Coat Syndrome. Typically, I stay as far away from anything “medical” as possible, but for Reagan’s Redemption I had to dig deep and conquer a personal demon or two. There were many days where I cringed, watching how-to videos on IV insertions and blood draws and hyperventilated my way through more than one resuscitation tutorial, but I did it, making Reagan’s […]

  Twas the Night After Christmas in New York City by Kate Allure   Twas the night after Christmas, when all through the flat, Not a creature was stirring—not cockroach, nor rat. My stockings were hung in the bathroom to dry, But my poor hopes for the New Year just caused me to cry. My kitties were nestled all snug in their bed, While visions of Sugar Plum Cocktails danced in my head. And friend Kim in her new dress, and I in my beanie, Had just settled at Rum House for a delicious martini. When out on Times Square there arose such a clatter, We sprang from the bar to see what was the matter. Away threw the doorway I flew like a flash, […]
