The winding streets and narrow alleys of Karolene hide many secrets, and Hitomi is one of them. Orphaned at a young age, Hitomi has learned to hide her magical aptitude and who her parents really were. Most of all, she must conceal her role in the Shadow League, an underground movement working to undermine the powerful and corrupt Archmage Wilhelm Blackflame.

When the League gets word that Blackflame intends to detain—and execute—a leading political family, Hitomi volunteers to help the family escape. But there are more secrets at play than Hitomi’s, and much worse fates than execution. When Hitomi finds herself captured along with her charges, it will take everything she can summon to escape with her life.

I See London I See France

by Paulita Kincer

When her husband of a dozen years walks out in a huff, Caroline Sommers walks out too – to Europe, with her kids after impulsively selling her minivan for travel money. Tired of being the perfect wife, she escapes to rediscover herself, and possibly rekindle the unrequited love of a Frenchman from her college days. While shepherding her kids from London to Scotland then Paris to Provence, she finds herself at a crossroads. Does she choose love, or lust, in the arms of a European man, or should she try again with the father of her children and the man she truly loved, once?

Meandering Monday In Which I Encounter A Very Unusual Situation


I have a very unusual situation that I thought I’d blog about just to get it off my chest. It’s been bothering me for several weeks and I figure that this may be a good catharsis for me. Since I’m a newbie in blogging (15 months now), I’m not sure if this is a common occurrence so I thought I’d throw it out there.

In February, I entered a contest/blog hop through a great group of bloggers that I follow. There were a couple of bloggers that I was not friends with and had never heard of. I love blog hops for this reason–you meet new people! Several days after the hop, I received an email from an author who was apparently one of the bloggers on the hop, asking if I ‘really wanted to buy’ her book. That flummoxed me because I had entered the contest to win a copy of her book which looked cute but there hadn’t been any sort of sign-up form to buy it. Her writing was a bit stilted so I thought perhaps she was not American. I sent an email saying that the book looked good and I might purchase it later.
