My college roommate was the worst. Cecile would steal my food, bring guys over at all hours, and
party instead of studying. But those quirks paled in comparison to what she did next. She drugged me, and I woke up imprisoned in an alternate universe full of terrifying creatures. Now, the biggest and scariest creature of all—a fae king—believes I’m his mate. He’s freed me from the dungeon, but keeps me close.
So close, in fact, that I’m beginning to like his wintery gaze and ice-chiseled body. But secrets and villains lurk throughout this new world, and I don’t know if I’ll survive long enough to figure out how to get back home.

The fae king is growing on me. Every touch, look, and night spent in his arms is slowly melting my resistance. When his feral side takes over, something inside me wants to let go and give him everything. With each passing day, the pull is getting harder to deny. But the road to the winter realm is full of danger, and I need to concentrate on finding my way home, not on the promises of pleasure Leander whispers in my ear at night. Even so, how long can I resist the intoxicating kiss of winter?
Author’s Note: This is book 2 of the Fae’s Captive Series. Be sure to read book 1 first or risk being
lost in the woods with a growly fae king.
 
 
 
Exclusive Excerpt!
A smile quirks up one side of his lips, and the goosebumps spread down my back. He’s handsome in a brutish, alien sort of way. But definitely more scary than anything else. Those dark eyes hide traps and barbs, I’m certain of it.
He edges closer and rests the tray next to me.
My stomach growls again, and I can’t take my eyes off the food. But should I eat it?
With a nudge, he pushes the tray even closer. I can smell the sweetness of the fruit and the doughy bread. Food is food, right? But what if it’s poisoned?
He says something, one word. Maybe it’s ‘eat’, since he gestures toward the tray with one of his bear paws.
My stomach makes the decision for me as it complains loudly and a hunger pang shoots through me. I reach for the bread and take a small piece, then put it in my mouth, testing it. Sweeter than the breads I’m used to, it melts on my tongue.
He nods, his dark eyes glinting, and he says the word again. It sounds like “brantath” to me. I form the word as best I can and repeat it back to him. His face lightens, and he tears another piece of bread from the round loaf and gives it to me.
I take it, swallowing it just as fast as the first. “So brantath means eat.” My stomach seems to rumble even more. “Or maybe it means bread?”
When he sits on the bed, I yank the fur up and pull my knees to my chest. The entire mattress shifts under his weight as he leans over and butters a bigger piece of bread and offers it to me.
“Brantath.” He leans closer. The scent from the fur and the shirt I’m wearing is the same one that wafts from him. It’s the promise of a cold winter’s night spent next to a roaring fire.
I take the bread, my fingers gently brushing against his. A low growl in his throat has me pulling back. It stops, but he gives me a predatory look, one that frightens me and sends heat blasting through me at the same time. Something’s wrong with me, but I’m too happy about the food to care.
I devour the bread, the butter creamy and delicious. He
rises, the bed groaning with relief as he grabs a pitcher and pours water into
a crystal cup, then hands it to me. I sniff it. No smell. But it’s not like I’m
an expert poison sniffer or anything. I drink, mainly because I’m parched and
don’t know when I’ll get my next chance at food or water.
He watches me swallow it down, then holds his hand out for the empty glass. When I reach out to give it to him, he stills, his eyes narrowing. Ferocious. That’s the only word for the look on his face. I clutch the fur and scoot away from him.
With fluid fury he reaches to the table behind him and draws an enormous silver sword.
A choked sound catches in my throat as he raises it. I’m going to die.
“Please, don’t.” It’s the only words I can get out as he lunges toward me.

V is for VIRGINIA

V (2)

My next door neighbor as a child was Mrs. Gamble (VIRGINIA ) she had the most amazing book collection, Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys so many all wonderful, this was Mexico City and her books were in English. She was my private library and when I returned a book, she made me a banana split, have never tasted one that good ever… and discussed the books with me, I was lucky, her daughter Cathy a few years older was State side at a boarding school… This lady was one of the biggest most wonderful gifts from the UNIVERSE in my childhood. She gave me a passion for reading and an understanding of characters and storyline no school or teacher ever did.

I started reading so fast that she had me take 3 and four books at a time, I also learned a lot about Minnesota, the family was probably originally from that state. Her husband Bill was an executive with the Ford Foundation in Mexico City. In this life I have had many lovely neighbors, but none that have impacted me the way Mrs. Gamble did… a fairy Godmother of sorts . I also had a great AUNT GINNY I so loved, her middle name AUSTIN is my son’s name.

Virginia \v(i)-rgi-nia, virginia\ as a girl’s name is pronounced vir-JIN-yah. It is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Virginia is “maiden“. The name was originally spelled Verginia, and was the feminine form of an ancient Roman clan name Verginius. With time, its spelling changed due to its association with the Latin term “virgo”, meaning “maiden”. This meaning has been used for the name ever since. Popular in America since the mid 19th century; the first child born in America was Virginia Dare, in 1597. The state of Virginia was named as homage to the Virgin Queen, Elizabeth I. Author Virginia Woolf; tennis player Virginia Wade.

Virginia has 37 variant forms: Geena, Geenia, Geenya, Genia, Genya, Gigi, Gina, Ginella, Ginelle, Ginger, Gingia, Ginia, Ginnee, Ginni, Ginnie, Ginny, Ginya, Jenell, Jenella, Jenelle, Jinia, Jinjer, Jinnie, Jinny, Verginia, Verginya, Virge, Virgena, Virgene, Virge, Virgenya, Virgie, Virgina, Virgine, Virginie, Virginnia and Virgy
